Chicken Coops and Character Transfer, what happened??

So I have a bunch of chicken coops on my roof, I transferred the character I tend them on and when I transferred back I can no longer access them.

I tried with every character on that account and none of them can access the chicken lizards, is there any way to fix that? :(

    Yup. When you transfer your character ID is rewritten and you are reborn.  You need to find a GM that can give them to the new you or email Mesanna so she can do it.

    GM River told me to stop transferring with my main tamer because he has coops.  He said there are only a few left that can fix them.

    They have to remove each one and give them them to the new you.  The generic GM will not do it in case you are trying to be a scammer and they were not yours to begin with.  Sucks that that all UO decisions are based on scammers and cheaters activities.

    Good Luck

    Moral of the story, do not transfer with toons that have coops.  You can put them in your stable instead and transfer.  I'm not sure if you could transfer with them in your bankbox. I wont be trying to test that.
    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    Blah...

    Well I paged a GM so we'll see what happens.

    If the GM can't fix it, I guess I will e-mail Mesanna.

    What a pain!

    LOL Thanks for all the replies! I had no idea this was an issue.

    I transferred and accidentally took a new player token with me, the one that gives you enhanced skill gain. When i arrived, the token is no longer mine, which is dumb, it should be account bound, not character name bound.
    You and Several Others like this.


    Please make the Grizzled Mare a 5 slot mount, it's incredibly rare and deserves it. Some of us have been waiting a long time for this simple addition.

    So I just checked my Coops all 37 have no owner now after returning from Origins event ! :(

    They should change it so who ever locks them down in a owned house becomes the new owner.
    Make them account bounded and anyone on account can retrieve the chicken Lizards bounded.

    Ya GM River is gone and only the long time GMs may know how to fix this.

    I am wondering if I transfer them with a different character, will they then become owned by that character??

    I am just re-bonding because I am not crazy like skett  ;)  I only have 18 Chicken Lizards bonded...well 12 regular and 6 Battle Chickens just as a test to see if Battle Chickens laid more battle chicken eggs then regular chicken lizards...they do not :/

    I just watered the 40 eggs that I had and got 2 Battle Chicken eggs :/

    Why is the % so low??

    Anyway...if the transfer thing with another character works then I'm golden, if not then I already have chicken lizards bonding in brand new coops.

    Why would I transfer them with a different character you ask??

    Maharia, my tamer....is also a Governor.....not making that mistake again.

    Not whole folder just the specific character the only way  to test would be say something in chat to get number copy data file then transfer then back say something to see number then past old data file to see what happens

    Before you transfer your # is 1 if you copy the user data file it should retain the number

    You could copy to TC and see if the numbers change to the ones on your originating shard.  I don't think the numbers are in those files.

    It's the transfer back we couldn't test using TC

    I really should empty out my 20 coops. I have not touched them in over a year. They must be filled to the brim with poo by now.
