Hi everyone,

Well I decided to sign up again to UO! I was on these board a couple of weeks back asking about my friend who lost his main char - he has been working hard on a new char at the mo and has got his skills up into the 90s already for the most part so that’s good for him

Y question is re: housing. I managed to place myself a nice log cabin last night and decided to buy some chests for storage. My problem was when I came to lock the item down, I spoke 'I wish to lock this down', the cursor then changed and I selected the chest - so far so good I thought - but I was still able to pick up and move around the chest. Also when I clicked on my house sign and looked under the storage tab, it said I still have the max available lockdowns. I tried the 'I wish to secure this' option too but same problem. So I tried to make house private/public to see if that would make a difference - same problem

Does anyone have any ideas what I am doing wrong and how I can overcome this problem?

Many thanks!


EDIT:
I also tried to lock the chest down in several different positions cause I thought maybe it was a dodgy tile or something, but this did not work
either

Are you using UOKR? or the 2D client?
I had the same problem with KR not being able to lock certain items down.

Welcome to UOForums btw
Hmm that's...odd
How many lockdowns do you have left?
I can't remember whether a secured chest automatically takes up 125 lockdowns or not.

I can't think of any container type that has a lockdown problem, and I'm assuming you are using the standard craftable chests, so this is a bit puzzling.... 625 sounds WAY too low a lockdown total for a log cabin though! Do you mean the small house, rather than the two-storey log cabin?

Edit : Checked, and it's the wrong total for that type as well - http://www.uoherald....ide/house_9.php

Which shard are you on, I'd be fascinated to look at this house you have since it seems not to match anything I thought you can build... unless it's a customisable 9x7 plot, that seems to have a 625 lockdown limit (for the basic plot - that may vary too, with all the options you can buy for UO!)

Hi

I'm on Europa - I think I probably misquoted the number of lockdowns (my misatake!), but the point was that they were all still available eg. xyz lockdowns available out of a possible xyz

Its just a bog standard 2-story log cabin and the chests are the large size ones that I bought from a player vendor

Thanks

This is from Stratics:
From the Players Corner FAQ ... is this possibly the symptom and cause? Why can't I lock down or secure items in my house when friends and co-owners can? It just started to occur. Got a pet ... like a horse or something? Try locking it down. If you get a message related to honoring then you've apparently honored something (perhaps even in your house!). Locate a "quick" kill (cow, sheep, bull), honor it and kill it. You should now be able to lock/secure items once more.

Hi

Thanks for that info - I'm at work at the mo but I'll sure give that a go tonight and let you know if it works........

EDIT:
I don't remember seeing the message about honour, but maybe I missed it as I was trying to lock the item down over and over in several diferent positions.
If not, might try and log in as a different char and give it a go - could take me a while tho, all my other chars are noobs and my house is in middle of nowhere - lots of walking!

did ya try to lock/secure a different container to see if it is just that one container?

An empty container only takes one lock/secure down ... if it has items in it then it counts the items as lockdowns ... curious situation ya have ...

also perhaps try a deed type item to see if you can do that .... (some do take lock down space like a vanity)

Hope it all works out for ya .. never heard of such a thing ...

Finally got this sorted - it was the problem with the honour virtue.

Went out and honoured a random animal (grizzly bear in my case), killed it and when I went back to house………..voila! I can lock/secure again!

Thanks for your help everyone
