I'm apparently not allowed to post in the bug forum, so this will be just fine.

Anyway, I've noticed that ever since I've come back and started playing again, none of the random-treasure doodads spawn anything. Specifically that I've noticed are in the cemetary with the two crates and the North Shore mines there are a few crates that don't have treasure either.

You cannot create a new thread directly in the Shifting Sands Bug forum. Instead, post a note in this Pinned Bug Report Form thread.

I am not aware of any update that would have busted the low-level treasure chests you mention.

The Loot system for chests, crates, barrels etc is still on the fritz and has been for quite some time now after hmm the 1.68 update? iirc, the builders are aware of it and have opted on working on other things like new areas & monsters, fixing & tweaking other things and adding the Eldritch Knight prestige class and since the monsters do drop bits, gold and eq (bosses etc) when they die fixing what Bioware broke is kinda low on the totem pole I would imagine heh ehh.

Anyhoo, I tend not to bother checking chests and all anymore, so maybe the low level loot containers finally broke with the rest of them? And since it has been mentioned many times before with 'No Loot' found with other bugs on the bug and design side, no one has posted a specific bug for just the loot system.

I would hazard a guess that none of of the chests, crates, boxes, etc. have any loot in them at this point. I would try and check them out since I have time, but honestly have no clue on how to do it since I am not that proficient with the toolset. From what I have read on other threads on the loot system it looks like alot of work needs to be done and not enough time to do it! :-)

The 1.68 patch was released in August. No one's been playing or building much for quite some time though.

Hey! Some of us are still playing! :-P Just RL tends to take away the fun time every now & then. I'm usually on 3-4 times a week for an hour or so at least... sometimes more when me running partner is on, hard to stay away doncha know :-)

Back to the subject at hand though Medieve, for now I wouldn't worry that much about nothing being in containers, there are still good drops from critters with kits, gold and occassional items that you can easily sell for better items (and gold tends to be more the higher level of critters you fight). And with crafting, you can always make them as there is alot of great gear to be made from the ATS.

There are the two gypsies (one at NS and one at Crossroads) who will buy creature bits as well as the Pinot's (halflings) found here and there in Paradan, Mag Town and Geidi who will buy bulk. There are a few merchants too who are not in towns but spread out in off places.. like in caves, on a plateau and and by an abandoned city for instance. Even one where you have to use your brain to solve a riddle :-)

And the Player Vendors tend to have some nice crafted items at the Crossroads if you don't have a mind to craft yourself.

We have a workaround for this now - DMs can fix busted loot. It is a simple things for them to do that requires only a bit more effort than a quick log in after a reset.

Unfortunately, the loot isn't being initialized properly. It works on several of our machines at home, but not on the server, for whatever reason.

the loot system was completely rewritten (many years ago now) so it's all happy puppies again
