View Full Version : Advice on how to move apartments requested

<DIV>I've got too much stuff for my current apartment, and I'm considering moving. However, it's not clear at all how you are supposed to move your stuff.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Packing things in boxes isn't an option. I can't fit everything in.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Can you use the overflow slot somehow? </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Alternatively, I can create a level 4 mule and give it trustee status, some cash to buy boxes, and use the mule to move things. If an alt grabs stuff from your apartment, does the ownership of the things transfer to the alt? If the alt is subsequently deleted, is everything moved by the alt deleted, or do things become forever unmovable since the ownership of the items is in doubt? Are there things a mule can't pick up, or things that are tied to the apartment and unmovable (not counting upgraded floors and walls, I don't have those).</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Any other suggestions on how one is supposed to move to a bigger apartment?</DIV>

<P>I moved over 220 over items and three vault boxes although they say they move with you I refused to let the system take care of that so I picked that up too. I used another character well three actually but you can do it with one too.Get them their newbie house which you can get at level one which can hold 100 items.Then dump all the items in their house by giving your main trustee status.Then you pick up everything else in the inventory if you have more items then use another mule's house. I actually only used three chars which had bags since I play them and just one house . Then I gave up the house and took everything myself that is I picked them up from my mule's house and deposited it in the new house.</P> <P>All no trade items like the racial quests stuff have to picked up by the toon that is thier owner and to be safe just deposit everything else with your main character so that if any chandelier gets stuck in the ceiling you do not have to call a CS like I did since I could not pick it up. I had to redo all the racial quests to get all my pwerty flowers back .</P><p>Message Edited by aryel on <span class=date_text>04-21-2006</span> <span class=time_text>12:13 AM</span>

  I actually asked a GM if house vault items move with you, and he/she said yes.  Still to be safe, I tested it myself by putting a couple items in the vault boxes and got rid of the house.  When I bought a new one, yes the stuff was exactly as it was in the other house, so it DOES work.  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

Aye, I moved house last month and just left everything in my house vault - no problem at all, it all came with me.  The remaining items I couldn't fit in there, I loaded up into my bags, and placed them in an alt's room.  Then when I bought the new house, I just grabbed them from the alt's room and placed them in the new home.  Doing it this way was easier than having an alt pick the items up, because I have a lot of quested items and books that are no trade so an alt couldn't have picked them up.

<P>I moved today, and It took buying rosewood strong boxes, for every space in my bank, and replacing my bags in my inventory with rosewood strong boxes as well, then a few trips, and some of the spaces in my guild bank, but... I didnt have room for the three boxes in my house vault. So...I took a chance and the vault did move just fine. But its just going to take a lot of trips from your house, to the bank, put the items in the bank, run back, get more, stick em in the guild bank, run back, fill up the inventory one last time, and then moved. Though next time I will not use the collect contents button, it made it alot more difficult to get everything setup how I wanted to. Next time I would grab all the rugs first, bookshelves etc, seperate it by sticking the little bitty crap (scrolls, books, all the annoying placeable stuff) in the bank and move the big furniture first and set that up before bringing in the rest of it. And pets last. But thats just my 2cp</P> <P> </P> <P>Edit: I am now in a 3br from the 2br... address is Jerlayne, 20 Lucie Court, SQ, Mistmoore - but keep in mind that its not done yet, and I will stick up pictures when it is...</P><p>Message Edited by BlindPariah on <span class=date_text>04-25-2006</span> <span class=time_text>05:09 AM</span>
