Lock Downs & Secures
Lockdown and Secure Changes [23082k]
- [15122k] Players may now lockdown items on/near stairs that are “passable”. This means they can lock down any item that can be walked over on or near stairs.
Access to secure containers can now be assigned by the house owner.
Locking down secure items in houses will change in the following ways:
- When a house owner makes a container secure a window will appear with the following options:
- Accessible by only owners and co-owners.
- Accessible by only owners, co-owners and friends.
The following items will be useable when locked down:
- Only the player that locked down an item or the owner of the house will be able to unlock that particular item. This will not change previously locked down items until they become re-locked down.
- Items on top of or below other locked down items will be accessible.
- Players will be able to use dyes on any dye tub, including ones that are locked down. However, black dye tubs will no longer be dyeable under any circumstances. This will affect all previous black dye tubs that exist.
- Keys on a keyring will not count toward the lock down total in a house. The keys within the keyring will not decay, however the keyring itself will still subject to normal decay situations.
- Players will be able to use any locked down container, except a secure container. Note that items inside of a container cannot be locked down unless the container itself is also locked down. As stated above, locked down items will only be able to be released by the player that locked the item down, or by the owner of the house.
- Runes may be used for recalling.
- Treasure maps may be viewed by anyone.
- Runebooks will allow recall scrolls to be added by anyone to increase the amount of charges.
- Visitors to a house will be able to recall to a location from a locked down rune book in that house.
- Books will be readable by house visitors.
- Visitors to a house will not be able to scribe text into a locked down purple book.
- Candelabras and lanterns that are locked down will be operable by the house owner, co-owner, and friends of the house.
- Musical instruments will be operable.
- Locked down dyes will be useable on locked down dye tubs (except true black dye tubs which will not be dyeable as described above.)
- Locked down mugs, glasses and cups, will be useable by anyone.
× An unfortunate (intended?) side-effect of this update is that if your house had lock downs over the limit, the code will automatically unlock random items to put your house within the limit.
× By the time you log in, the items would have already decayed. (Yes, it happened to me.)
Lockdown Changes [02082k]
The circumstances under which lockdowns may be “used” will be updated with the following changes:
Lock Downs & Secure Containers 
- Resources that are used by “targeting” will no longer be useable when locked down. These items include ingots, boards, logs, and shafts.
- [Changed [23082k]] All items that are locked down will be useable only by the owner, co-owner, or friends of the house in which they are locked down, the only exception being that items which have another locked down item on top of them will not be able to be used, or released until the item above them is released.
- Items which can be used by visitors when locked down are:
- Runebooks will allow visitors to add recall scrolls to them, otherwise they will work as before.
- Purple Books can only be read when locked down. All others will be able to be edited by visitors.
- Visitors will be able to use locked down dyes in a house.
- Visitors will be able to use locked down dye tubs is a house. Dye tubs must be unlocked before the color of the dye can be changed.
- It will no longer be possible to lock down a “stacked” item unless all items beneath it are locked down. Additionally, it will no longer be possible to lock down “valueless” items such as new player clothing and death robes.
- [Removed [23082k]] [10072k] When a keyring is locked down, any keys in the keyring will also be locked down. The individual keys will be counted in the total number of lockdowns available in a house.
- [Removed [23082k]] [10072k] The color of locked-down dye tubs will no longer be changeable. You will be required to unlock a dye tub to change the dye color.
As part of Phase II, the number of secure containers and locked down items have been increased. Designating a container as secure will take up 125 of your lockdowns, regardless of how many items you actually put in the secure container. Note that containers within a container do not have a weight limit. This allows players to forego secure storage for more lockdowns. Secure containers do not have weight limits.
These changes, along with the ability to lock down stackable items and the removal of weight restrictions from secure containers and bankboxes, should offer you adequate room to store your most valuable and useful items and decorate your home.
You will also be able to lockdown containers and the items inside of them. These items will not be subject to decay once locked down in the container. Saying “I wish to lock this down” on a container will;
Locked down items can be used in the following manner;
- Count the items that can be locked down inside the container.
- Check the available number of lockdowns you have left for your house.
- If you have enough lockdowns available, the system will lock all items down, including the container, and report success.
- If you do not have enough lockdowns available, the system will report the failure and give the reason.
- Releasing a locked down container will automatically release all of the items in it.
