Tearing Down the House

Written 7 May, 2007

Tearing Down the House

Oh, dear.

It seems my friend Boofhead accidentally deleted the skybox I sold him.

Sorry, Boof, no refunds.

The house isn’t really gone, just snatched out of its former location high above Pele and filed away gently in Boofhead’s inventory.

I was on Pele when Boof had his catastrophe, and Sweetie and I flew up to 700 meters to see if I could help.

It was funny (but probably not to Boof).

I asked Boof to give me mod rights and when he had pulled it out of inventory moved it to its previous height (easy, exactly 700 meters) and then centered it—not so easy, but the artwork Boof had hung on the walls helped me nudge it into position.

Damn, I’m good!

Then I raised Boof’s house 20 meters so he could move or take the artwork he had lost within the walls—after which I set it back in place.

This time Boof did what I had suggested before—he noted the position and rotation of his house and put it on a notecard.

Next time he’ll be ready.

And if you read this Boof, I’m not sure if you removed mod rights when we were finished. Please check.
One never knows when I’ll go on a rampage.
