    Well that didn't last long.
    Are commission venders the reason VS is broken?
    You can now list anything for any OUTRAGEOUS price with no penalty fee.......

    A great idea now killed with ridiculously overpriced items that the chancer sellers are not getting punished for in fees (unless the crook sells items of course)

    What you see now are stupid prices for items. Examples......

    1. Hawkwind's robes were 18-20m. now nearly 40m
    2. 2008 high end Neon boxes 90-100m 175m EACH
    3. 2008 neon boxes. 20-35m. Now 80m COME ON TOAD TOWN, behave yourself
    4. Paroxy Dragon 50-60m. Now 80-90m

    What an absolute joke. Items now pretty much unsellable

    Seeing as people are taking the right P$$S lets get rid of commission vendors so "sellers" can bloody well behave themselves

    just type in 100m on VS, leave item blank and look at the crap items for sale. No wonder VS is broken on Atlantic.

    *********111,111,111m for single imbue essences?????????????? the whole VS is littered with crap********

    What a joke

    Do not buy the items. If they sit there long enough, the prices will drop. Supply and Demand.

    Hawkwind robes went up in price because when the new Pub goes WW you'll be able (eventually) to change it into one of the Virtue Tabards.

    Just gonna say "TOLD YOU SO" ... people argued with me about it but I called it. And if you think that's nuts they want these vendors to allow even higher pricing than the 175M...

    So... enjoy. The only solace I take in this is that it takes up precious lockdowns.

    I still don't see the problem. They wish to sell and pay the commission. If the price is too high, nobody will buy.

    So what?

    its flooded with over priced crap, it's got to be clogging the system, just look. 120m for sing essences. It's full of crap that will never sell. Just search over 100,000,000 for yourself and see.

    Honestly, much ado about nothing. You don't have to buy anything from anyone's vendor if you don't want to.

    Prices go up for many many reasons over time. It's a fact of life.

    I agree Vendor Search is slower, especially on Atlantic. An unfortunate side effect. Could possibly be mitigated some with higher-end CPUs and faster storage.

    I think there needs to be some common sense applied and enforced, a high percentage of items will not sell, EVER, are they there for deco?, I mean 100m for a single essence and to have 8 or so in the same pack? Just have it not for sale if it's there for illustration purposes. Its all on the search and its all crap, now there are no fees you can litter the server and I bet its why its all messed up

    people have seem to have forgotten the "not for sale" option when loading up containers with items for sale, instead adding 111,111,111 and 111,111,112 on single items that are clearly for P.O.S help only, which all goes into the system and clogs it

    Players are putting a high price on a single item. Like an essence for 10M. Multiply this by hundreds and there are a lot more items on all shards with the bulk on Atlantic.

    This was not the intended use but thats what some UO players do.

    I don't think you can blame the new commission vendors completely. What about all the gazillion repair deeds people sell ? those get indexes as well.

    IMO not much excuse for it anyway. With todays processors and computing power, doing a search shouldn't be a dramatic event. They might have to upgrade from those Pentium IIs that they are running.

    Yea, I had my struggles with VS on Atl long before those new vendors, but it certainly didn't improve with them.

    Who cares what people price their items at?


    As for VS being slower, well they have already said there should be improvements with the publish:

    @Promathia , agree 100% with you.
    I guess bc people been playing this game for well over 20 years and are getting older and older, they are also getting crazy in their head. Not to say other things, people only come here to cry about this, cry about that, OMG panic bc this and that and most of the time mind about Someone elses business or game play. Can you just go play your own game?? Who cares if something is 1m or 10m or 150m? People will buy or nor of they want.

    I mean recently @Lord Nabin posted Mesanna answer about this new thing about people macroing but no, you cry babies decided to take to the next level of crazyness and decided to spread fear instead and now you see lot of people closing their shop, closing libraries, among many other situation because of YOU.
    Back to topic, yes VS is acting up and will get worst after they add Safes, but guess what, with safes on search and no limit of prices, things will cost you a lot more and you will cry even more.

    Exactly. The alternative is they sit in someones house not for sale at all. They are sitting at a higher fee but storage still being used. Forget about high end items. What this allows is people to sell lower end items without vendor fees taking up all profit if the item doesn't sell immediately. This allows slower moving items to be listed for sale at all.

    If someone puts it for sale at 80m and someone eventually buys it - good for the seller.

    Its amazing how many people want this game to be socialism. Let the market dictate a price. You don't want to pay 80m - don't f'ing buy it. Simple as that. What you are probably seeing is the 60m ones selling and not available but the 'got to have it price' is 80m and for some people - 20m is a rounding error so they are willing to pay.

    A case of diet coke is $6. A single diet coke at a convenience store is $1.80. Do you see people rioting? Thats like a 3x mark up. Its the convenience 'got to have it' price.

    before these new venders came out, I suggested only one per house. a lot of us knew is may not be good for the game. I just wont buy. problem is its overloading the venders system. I also keep getting items that have no connection to what I type in search. sometimes it says too vague, wth?

    I think there are two worlds. Atlantic and the rest of UO. In most of UO the vendor search often returns nothing on other shards. You can always sort by price to find the lowest priced whatever so who cares if someone has their item overpriced? The lower priced ones show first.

    I'm pretty sure that even if you donated a data center to EA/BS they would still screw it up.

    Does that mean, that VS will show "your search criteria is too vague" faster ?

    Why? What's the point of them doing this? I don't get this
