Announcement: P-chests discontinued

PostAuthor: CPU » Sat Jan 10, 2009 7:15 pm

Due to the duping and exploit issues with p-chests, the Team will no longer place these storage units (or their derivatives, display cases) in Player Housing projects. Players should expect to see EP-Chests used exclusively from here on out.

EP-chests do require a key to access the items inside. There is a dropbox version of the EP-Chest (it also requires a key to access dropped off items).

Anyone who currently has a house placed in-game is grandfathered in, although we are looking at an automated P => EP conversion process sometime down the road.

The Housing Boards will be updated shortly to reflect this change.

Is there an option to recreate display chests with the EP-ones? It shouldn't be *too* hard, as the basic functionality is already there with the P-Merchants, right?

*has a project in the pipeline that absolutely needs display chests*

Sorry, but as of now, no. I'm also not aware of anyone wanting to code up a new type of EP-chest either.

The closest thing would be a p-merchant. A p-merchant can display items without selling them.

I happen to be looking into it actually since display chests are going to be affected by the future server-wide conversations to ep-chests.
