MM7 anomalies

Postby Emjayen » Aug 1 2013, 11:54

For example:

Single horseshoe spawning near the small town south of Harmondale
Medium pile of gold spawning next to the arch into Harmondale

Anyone else experienced this?

I'm using base version 1.1 along with Grayface's patch 1.6.2

That's intended feature, or at least that how it works.
In fact you can even witness moment those items(goldpiles, etc) spawn, as they drop down from sky (that as far as I know is that due to outdoor engine limitations ). Consider those things as spawned stuff like some other open world rpg's have stuff randomly spawning.

It is? I've played through the game dozens of times and have never observed horseshoes [for example] spawning anywhere apart from near the stables (in Harmondale that is)

Yeah things get spawned all over Harmondale after a while, I remember playing when I was still pretty little like 5-7 ish and Playing this game I would find hat suddenly the entire map of Harmondale is covered in blue things and went around picking them up. It also Happens frequently in Erathia and Ive heard of it happening, and have seen it happen once in Deja, Don't know much about it but I just shut up and take the gifts the gods had given me :D

That's interesting. Maybe my perception is different because I'm watching a friend of mine play (speaking of which; http://www.twitch.tv/deederdangler (password is: c700) if anyone's interested in watching a newbie play. He'll probably will be playing for atleast another hour from the time of this post)

With spawning, there's the issue where items from another map can spawn. For instance, items from the Tularean Forest, even if you're not in it. It's a bug, although it's not really worth complaining about :D

If there are any more details about this, I'd like to know.

Perhaps lazy level designer haven't placed them down on the ground.

if i remember well - there are restriction inengine where we got only X & Y coordinates but no Z - so we cannot place items and creatures vertically. thats why we can see them fall down or have flying monsters in the air.

perhaps you already added this missing Z coordinate and now we can place items right in space?

This actually also happens in MM8, most noticeably in Garrote Gorge.
And yes, it happens in unpatched versions too. Not that I'm complaining. :p
