    EDIT: That is if everything goes as planned and there are no other corruptions in the data...
    Did Kyle code vendors with "vendor pick up" abilities? Currently, if a vendor has items on it, it can not be moved.

    Thank you for taking the time to give us a more precise explanation of the problem. As one for ludicrous levels of technical detail, it relieves much of my frustration at not understanding more about the issues. I look forward to seeing what you come up with. I will be working through Christmas on a new contract; it's so nice without the usual interruptions, if that is your choice It's my favorite part of the holidays, getting things done.

    TheAnswer is gonna try some coding gymnastics to try to bring back missing vendors, or at least spawn them long enough so merchants can retrieve their goods. But, there is no guarantee it will work and since its anything but an easy task it might take days.

    It doesn't matter how it was/is coded, its our code and we can edit/lift restrictions for special cases whenever we want, the only important thing is the data to be in the database.

    BTW: When you figured out this and had some nice relaxing days: It seems like Theed SP is out of order and at least some of the other Space Stations does not show the incoming shuttle Animation (But works anyway).

    If the vendors and items are in the database, but their locations are not (any longer), wouldn't it be true that rolling it back further could reestablish those locations? Perhaps to the last (normal) server restart?

    Also, in the past, around the last pub, didn't we have the same problems with vends and shuttles? If so, whatever the cause and fix was, shouldn't it be able to work again?

    Yes and no. There is a limit to the point in time where we can rollback to, we have already rolled back to the point where we think is the safest for the data to be consistent, any further might create more problems and issues that wouldnt make it worth it.

    Before doing the rollbacks we made a backup of the entire database and in the next days we will try to transfer the data to a separate machine and try a more aggressive rollback on it. This takes quite a lot of time considering we are talking about 400GB datasets. There is a possibility that we can rollback the data to a point where we can recover the positions and transfer only the position data back to basilisk, but its a far fetched possibility at this point.

    In case that fails what we will attempt is to move all the vendors to a specific location as I described in an earlier post.

    I lost seven out of ten vendors--the others are there as if nothing happened. But I trust that the SWGEMU staff can handle this. If not, we'll have fun rebuilding

    Good luck with this one TA.

    I've a total of 13 humanoid vendors missing from my GH, with around 10,000 items. Pretty sure all were created with the changes to Merchant in Pub 6? :-(
    However, my additional storage vendors appear to be ok. All non humanoid, same building, but diifferent room.

    As I said earlier in the thread, I commend all of you guys for communicating everything so clearly. I know as an IT support provider that it can be challenging to provide consistent, up-to-date information in an emergency. Well done.

    To the people who have had vendor difficulties, I also commend you for your patience. This thread has really shown a sense of an SWGEmu team and stands as a memorial to the community we have here and the common goal we all share.
