<p>Just logged in and started working on additions to my guild's holiday maze, and noticed that Layouts are currently disabled completely on live. Anyone have any insight on this?</p>

<p>There's a problem with the layout commands.  See Rothgar's responses here for more info <a href="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?start=0&topic_id=459352�." target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/...2�.</a><a rel="nofollow" href="http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/posts/list.m?topic_id=459352." target="_blank"></a></p>

<p>a lot of servers were crashing last night due to the size of the gu so on some servers the layout and the spire events were disabled temporarily</p>

<p>Anyone figured out a way 2 make re-enable, even with an unpatched client I'm still getting the disabled message, And for some reason loading layouts are still passed through the server so doing it with a dead connection doesn't work either.</p><p>Seriously, there are some things that should just have a 'WARNING, may cause unforseen issues' label tossed on them, and then be left alone rather than disabled. This 'bug' makes no difference when trying 2 use layouts to design a new house...</p>

If the problems are what I think they are, then it should be an easy fix and shouldnt take them too long.</p><p>Funny thing is I was starting to add features to my app to get around them. I am going to leave my one click "remove all items in the crate" function in that is unless they strip those items out... which I would rather they just had the server ignore them when loading a layout.</p>

Also many other issues I didnt notice. Also due to some confussion about how to use my "Helper items", i am now looking into redoing that system from the ground up in a way that makes much more sense.</p>

I'm totally looking forward to playing with it when it goes live and to see what everyone else comes up with now.</p>
