Special Community Requests
- To help with moving in to a new structure, if you are currently at or below the lot limit, you will be allowed to place a new player house even if doing so would exceed the lot limit. To be precise, this exceeding the lot limit is only allowed when placing a new player house (factory, harvester, generator, guild hall, merchant tent, cantina, medical center, theater, diner, barn, etc. are not included). To coerce you back to lot limit compliance, the following will occur when you place a new player house that causes you to exceed the lot limit. A message (in large red text) will be permanently displayed on your client warning you that you are in violation of the lot limit. You will be spammed (every 5 minutes during the first 24 hours, and every minute thereafter) with a warning message that you are in violation of the lot limit. It may take up to 1 minute after the violation for the large red text and the spamming to begin. You will not be able to drop any item into (or move around items within) any other factory or structure (even those owned by someone else that you are admin of) except for the structure that caused you to exceed the lot limit. You will still be able to drop items into other containers (inventory, equipped backpack, bank, trade with another character, storage droid, vendor, bazaar, POB ships, etc). You will not be able to edit the admin list of the structure that caused you to exceed the lot limit.
- To help with moving in to a new structure, the following new commands have been added:
- /pickupAllRoomItemsIntoInventory (/pickupAll or /pickupA for short) command has been added that will attempt to pick up all items in the room of the structure or POB ship in which you are currently standing into all available inventory space. Only available inventory space will be used. Available space in equipped backpack will not be used. Any item in the room that you would normally be able to manually pick up from where you are currently standing in the room should be picked up by this command. If you wish to pick up more items than available inventory space, you can specify the "overload" option with the command by typing "/pickupAllRoomItemsIntoInventory -overload" which will pick up additional items and overload your inventory, but not so overloaded as to prevent you from moving.
- /dropAllInventoryItemsIntoRoom (/dropAll or /dropA for short) command has been added that will attempt to drop all items in your inventory into the room of the structure or POB ship in which you are currently standing, up to the item limit of the structure or POB ship. Any item in your inventory that you would normally be able to manually drop into the room should be dropped by this command.
- /saveDecorationLayout and /restoreDecorationLayout have been added to save and restore decoration layout of a structure or POB ship. You are still responsible for actually moving the items into (and dropping them into a pile in any room of) the structure or POB ship where you intend to run the /restoreDecorationLayout command. These commands are also useful to "undo" a decoration change that you don't like, like if your structure decorating "helper" (aka cat) jumps on the keyboard and ruins your decoration masterpiece. Or they can be used to save multiple decorative layouts of the same structure or POB ship, allowing you to quickly switch between decorations. Run these commands and follow the on screen instructions. You can get the name of the room that you are currently in from the "UI Debug Print" window (Shift+Ctrl+G). Saved decoration layouts are not transferred with CTS. Note that these operations save and restore an item's position and orientation by tracking the item's unique id. As such, it will only restore the particular item (NOT a similar item) that was saved. The item to be restored must be placed directly in a room (any room) of the structure or POB ship where the /restoreDecorationLayout command is run. For example, it cannot be in your inventory or inside a container in the structure or POB ship.
- Increased XP gain for Quests, Combat kills, and Missions.

- The inventory over limit threshold value that causes the dreaded "INVENTORY OVERLOADED - CANNOT MOVE" message to be displayed and prevent you from moving has been increased.
