    1. Title: Reward-type water buckets don't stack with "normal" ones
    2. Reproduction Rate: 100%
    3. Blocker? no
    4. Details: The 10 reward-type water buckets received with reagent plant rewards don't stack with "normal" water buckets retrieved at a fountain
    5. Steps to Reproduce: Get a few normal buckets, claim a reward reag plant & get 10 "reward" type buckets. Try stacking them in inventory or external container - you won't make it.
    6. User Specs: presumably irrelevant

    @Gorn da Morn - Thank you for reporting but this is by design. The pledge rewarded buckets of water (as with just about any other item except maybe COTOs) have different item ID #s than the normal in-game items.

    I believe the reasoning is because some of these reward items are being flagged as untradeable and the only way to do that is by assigning them different item ID's than the others. Also, the reward items should have a "zero" value so they can't be sold to a NPC merchant by mistake.

    This is the same concept with all items that can be stolen from the landscape. They can't stack with the normal versions because they have a zero value and can't be sold to a vendor. You can use them or scrap them, but you can't simply steal the respawning freebie items around the scene and then sell them to a vendor. This would be a major exploit that could easily be abused. So, they assign a different item ID to the stolen versions and therefore they can't stack with the normal versions that have a value that a merchant will pay you for them.
