Tinga Palace-Portrait easels trashed?

I thought, you couldn't trash anything that is vital and needed for an establishment, like order desks in shoppes and stalls, market interfaces in palaces and markets. And in palaces, I thought, easels were untrashable, too.

Seems, I was mistaken.

I wanted to make a portrait and happened to be on Tinga. Off to the palace I went, clicked on the "Get Portrait" whisk button... and??? no easels.

Why would anyone want to do away with them????

Re: Tinga Palace-Portrait easels trashed?

I'm not sure anyone from CotBP monitors the forums, it may be better to speak to them in-game. I suspect they didn't realize that removing the easel screws up the whisk for a portrait.

Anything thats game breaking should be bugged... No harm in a petition in this particular case either...

The situation appears to be resolved. There are two easels there now.

Re: Tinga Palace-Portrait easels trashed?

I had petitioned, and Thalia responded, saying the OM in charge of island development would take care of it. Also, the current govner said, they'd replace them, if needed. They didn't move them. And the previous govner said, he returned all furniture that had been placed previously, to their respective owners... He also said, that he knew from another island, that indeed easels didn't fall under the same restrictions as for instance, market interfaces or order desks or work stations, and they could be removed.

So, it's entirely possible, they'd been trashed and replaced by privately-owned items years ago, without anyone being the wiser, and only the return of items now revealed that.

I wasn't pointing fingers or calling for cades. I was merely wondering, that they could be removed, being that they provide an essential service in the palace.

Re: Tinga Palace-Portrait easels trashed?

There's quite a lengthy list of oversights and buglight things in the royal and governor pots. Partly because most of the governor and royal actions happen so rarely that bugs and oversights haven't been found, and also partly because the return on investment of fixing them in the codebase is pretty low compared given the availability of a very rare manual cheap fix by an OM.
