    Well, I don't know if it's just me, but my items don't stack in my bank if they're not put in it from the same location (meaning I can add Garlic from Soltown, and then from Aerie it'll make 2 stacks of garlic in my bank. I can merge the stacks together afterward, but it's sometimes painfully long).

    And I don't really see the point here since you can access your bank from different locations.
    So, why not make all items stackable from the begining?

    Thanks!

    This is a side effect from how banks worked before. Back in the days, banks were split by town, so you could not access your bank contents from another town. They fixed this but not without leaving that side effect in.

    A good fix is to drag and drop your items from another towns bank right back into the bank, which will change the items location, and allow easy stacking, until one day they get back to fixing the banks.

    having the locations broken out DOES have uses. for instance, if you have a fully-decoed lot sent to the bank, you can easily grab those items just by sorting by location rather than picking through everything in your bank trying to guess.

    The amount of time this saves you is negligible because you still have to redeco the lot and having a lot fall is not something most of us have happen that often. The sorting by location is a constant hassle and results in unexpected behavior when trying to open containers in the bank. It should have gone away when the bank was make not-quite-exactly-universal.

    The far better solution would be for the lot to fall to the MM, not the bank.

    House/boat getting sent to your bank happens more than you'd think. Weather it's trying to upgrade lot size or being drunk and un-claiming your lot before sending your boat to property manager >.< (been thru both of those scenarios)

    Sending house to MM/PM would be ideal in most situations but not sure if it'd be possible when changing lot size
