    We made a change to get them to stack, which required making them weigh more.  Will have a look as to why the quantity also decreased.

    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    well that kinda sucks, its alot of weight, and really not realistic considering a log only weight 2 stones.

    Crabs and lobsters caught with crab and lobster traps weigh 5 stone each.  The change makes those from the merchants weigh the same.

    What I do not understand, is why it was decided to raise the (lower) weight of the older ones to match the (higher) weight of the newer ones (if I understood it as correctly, otherwise, please correct me if I understood it as wrong) in order to have them, old and new, stack, and not the other way around which it is, make the weight of the newer ones lower, the same of the older ones...

    If the issue for them to stack is to have them all the same weight, why can't they be the same "lower" weight rather then the "higher" weight ?

    @Kyronix ?

    @popps the older crabs and lobsters have always weighed 5 stone.  The new crabs and lobsters mistakenly weighed 1 stone. Raising the new crabs and lobsters to 5 stone makes them stack with the old ones.

    Ah, OK, thank you for the clarification.

    It also does not look realistic to me that a log weights 2 stones and a crab/lobster 5 and I also agree that all crabs and lobsters should weight a lot less, like 1 stone.

    Hopefully, the developers can make them all weight 1 stone ?

    That is, change the 5 stones weight of the older ones to 1 stone so as to match the 1 stone weight of the new ones which, at that point, I would hope, would make them all stack, old and new, but on the basis of a 1 stone weight rather then of a 5 stones weight ?

    ya i never realized the old ones weighed 5 stones, ok makes sense now kinda, still dont understand how a tree can only weigh 2 stones but yet a crab 5 stones.

    WTF are you saying here?

     :D 

    Complaining about weights.  Should a log weigh 500 stones?

    Why do things I craft weigh more then the resources that make them. 

    Focus on what you can do, not what you can't.

    The hat drop from Merchants and non-Dread pirates is so poor the only reason I was attacking them was for the 1030 c & L in chests. I won;t bother attacking them again until the qty changes.

    Possibly because it is a lot easier to change the newly added content than those that are stashed away in people's houses, banks or ships?
