I will let Derrick verify this one way or the other.

When I created this gump I coded it with Co-Owners. I made this gump based off the look of the old gump. The picture didn't have co-owners and I completely forgot to add the extra button options for co-owners in it because it wasn't on the picture I was replicating. The ability does exist with the gump. All that needs to be done with it is extending the gump slightly and adding some buttons with text.

During the testing of this gump Derrick brought the co-owner issue to my attention. I had completely forgotten to add those buttons. Derrick than told me how the server originally did not have co-owners in the beginning and with this new gump the possibility for it to not have co-owners may happen again.

Having no co-owners presents an element of risk for the items in a house.

I personally do not care if it goes in one way or another. However, I tend to be in favor of keeping co-owners. This is simply only because I personally go by a seniority structure when it comes to patches for a t2a shard. Co-Owners fall into the standards I go by in this structure. In the end it will be up to Derrick to choose what to do towards this issue.

*Update*

Derrick just notified me that Co-Owners are staying and will be added to the new menu.

Good! I am glad with this choice, as Co-owners can place trash barrels and friends cannot. I use this as a security purpose.

Is there a time limit between when a house was placed and when it can be re-deeded and placed again?
Example: I Place a house on Saturday, and find a better spot on Sunday, can I re-deed it and re-place it or do I have to wait seven days?

**nm, there does not seem to be any timer.

Ok, maybe this has been stated before but I didn't see it. I have tried to lock a key down on the front porch but it says "this is not a lockable item here". I thought that keys were lockable on the front porch?

As far as I recall, items were lock downable anywhere. The only limit was to containers/secures and then there was a limit to furniture to prevent doors and stair ways from being blocked.

I don't believe you could lock anything down on your porch in t2a.

There are still ways of locking down items on your outside steps but they must be raised in the air and with no interior decorator, in the air they must stay. Not sure if a key would be accessable or not due to its height, will try later.

House deeds are not blessed and may be stolen from you by a thief or looted from your corpse if you die.


I haven't been paying attention the last six months or so, but people in IRC say this has changed. Knowing to never trust anything said in IRC at face value, I present the question here. ;)

House deeds are blessed as of a recent patch (last month). I'll update this guide.

Thanks!
