Finding out where you bought items Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Is there a way to find out where you have purchased items that are pending delivery? If not, it would be a helpful addition.

Check any hold of any ship and it will tell you all your outstanding orders.

I think though, it just tells you what store you purchased the item from and not from what island...Ummm, ask around, or hop the ferries and do a quick map check when you get to the island...if it's all inter-arch, I guess you're on your own.

Glad to be little to no help...Quiglin

There are so few stores around that it should be easy enough, even if you haven't been on azure for months beforehand...

It actually says "you need to be on XXX island to pick that up" or something along those lines.

I have a simular question I want to ask...

When I look at the stock of a boat it says: What shop i ordered it from, and all that... and the "delivery" button... But when I push the "delivery" button it either says: "To recieve that order, you'll have to be at Guava Island" or: "Delivery denied", or something...

What does that mean?

It means that you're A: not at the correct island (they don't have shipping :-P) or B: not an officer or above.

You need to be an officer to do anything with the hold except look at it.

More to the point, isn't it only trading goods that work with the delivery button in a hold? I'm an officer, and I can take delivery of me rum in the hold, but not of me boots.

Okay, I'm suspecting more fun with goods here.

What did you order, and - if not clothes or a sword - why?

If it's clothes or a sword, you just go to the shoppe and pick it up. It'll helpfully deliver the items right into your inventory, and poof, it's done.

If it's anything else, then I really hope you ordered it to help out your crew, because it's not going to do much for you. When ordering clothes, you do not have to order and supply your own cloth - the recipie is simply displayed for your information. The same is true when ordering cloth, and the materials that requires.

Further, taking the cloth to a tailor simply won't work right now - the OMs are not making deals. Perhaps after tailors are player owned, but even then, it would have to be one of the more rare fabrics to be worthwhile.

Regardless, the way you get non-personal items delivered to your ship is to ask the captain or a senior officer to make you an officer for the express purpose of getting the cloth delivered. The catch here is that you cannot then take those items off the ship - they will have to be sold to be used. The SO then removes your officer rank, and it's all done.

If you did order materials for cloth and such, it is possible for the senior officer or captain to sell them for you, and give you the resulting cash. You may find yourself takng a loss on it, however, and that's just a chance you take.

(note being that this is one of those times when the plea to somehow make the shop ordering interface a little more clear on JUST supply the poe! - and I might come up with a suggestion to back up that plea).

This thread seems to relate to ordering item on a ship for the most part. My husband ordered a pair of pants and can't remember what island or shop they are in. As a crew member but not an officer, will the hold tell him where to go to get his item? If not, is there another way to find out where it is?

I'm pretty sure the hold shows orders to players of any rank.

Indeed, I recently had a jobbing greenie who was sure that we could all see his "stuff" and couldn't understand why his stuff was in my hold. Any hold will do for order checking purposes.

Yup. Just checked on a Navy vessel.

Edit: and may I say, there's a whole lotta goods on this ship. Silly newbies fighting navy...

Actually, it's not newbies fighting the navy. Navy ships seem to spawn with goods. I highly doubt a large amount of people engaged the Navy with a myriad assortment of rare goods.

I am pretty sure the goods on the Navy ships come from Greenies foraging when they go on these ships. It is not obvious what the forage option does on the hold and greenies don't understand the process.

I'd wager it's the bots "foraging" goods so that the islands produce 100% [even if it goes to bots, it will eventually make it into the economy] or to disuade campers.

[though the navy ships going out there has only caused more camping...]

I think the bots forage, because I don't think greenies can. But I could be wrong.

Greenies could until very recently. I'd be impressed if the bots could forage.
