    the "too vaque" is better, but still essentially broken.

    just tested.

    many items still only show up if you type in the actual name (dont show up on pricerange search)

    since most people i know browse rares using the high to low price option, its still pretty useless when very limited amount of items show up using search.

    I type in the word "weight" and get everything on that shard and yes even Atl.

    Still getting the "too vague" message here. Both clients.

    Fully patched and ran a "Perform full file check" on each before starting.

    Both clients on Atlantic today (11th April)

    Standard EC and standard CC.

    Search was ran at 12:25 GMT (07:25 EST) so not really even prime time I would of thought for Atlantic.

    whats the point to search weight ???? to make pressure on the system for no reason ?
  • SmootSmoot Posts: 346
    its broken again
  • Lord_FrodoLord_Frodo Posts: 1,362
    I wounder if the physical size of Atl VS Warehouse is causing this.  Is it taking way to long to do any kind of search that it is basically timing out.

    Using the word "weight" gives you everything on that shard.  It is the one word that is found on every item.  For people that visit shards it is an easy way to see what they have at a single glance.

    I think all they did was allow the searches to take longer.  And now with all the returning accounts people have put more things on vendors and now it is taking too long again, so we get the too vague instead of the correct reason, Search took too long.

    see @Pawain ; you cant celebrate anymore, you have to wait at least 1 week b4 say anything!

  • PawainPawain Posts: 7,353
    Atlantic has been a busy place.  I go shopping again tomorrow.  Put goodies back on the vendors.
  • FortisFortis Posts: 389
    problem seems to came after the server crashed :-(
  • PawainPawain Posts: 7,353
    Yup, search is not working on LS today.

    8 years or so ago I remember reading that Google sold HW/SW search packages to businesses.  I wonder if they still sell those types of systems and whether UO could adapt it to take over vendor search.  I get the strong impression that the legacy stuff they trying to use now just isn't up to the task.  I'm sure Oracle and other such companies offer the same, but if I were EA/Broadsword I'd go for the uber-tested and proven Google tech.  Plus I remember the word "sold" as opposed to Oracle who would likely want a yearly license fee.

    Yay Thanks.

    @Lord_Frodo various books (spellbooks, mastery books; there may be others) do not have any weight ascribed.

  • PawainPawain Posts: 7,353
    You can see everything if you choose not cursed...not fel...not antique... whichever fits what you want .
  • MariahMariah Posts: 2,404Moderator
    Do I take it that you are asking vendor search to list every item on the server?
    Don't you think that's a rather large and unrealistic ask?
  • FortisFortis Posts: 389
    yeah!! now we know why vendor search was have issue with those stupid type of demand
