    Greetings,

    Been working on detecting hidden and was noticing sometimes when I use the skill on a chest, crate or keg the color of the words [Trapped] will very.

    Colors range from green, light blue and I think purple?

    At first I was thinking that certain types of containers were showing a specific color but that is just not the case. I have seen where crates / boxes tend to show green text and wooden chest seem to be green or light blue and then the metal chest can be green, light blue and a purple-ish color? And if you target the same container over and over who knows if the colors change again.

    Anyhow, anyone know why this is or what to give their idea on why it is?

    We wish you good fortune on the adventures to come.

    From UOGuide.com

    In the classic client only the 3 types of container traps are displayed with a colored “[trapped]” message when detected.
    • Purple for explosion traps
    • Blue for dart traps or dart & explosion traps
    • Green for poison traps, poison & dart traps, poison & explosion traps or poison & dart & explosion traps
