    1. Title: Inventory "Flicker"
    2. Reproducible? Only one account
    3. Blocker? Enough for me to not want to log in and do anything with that character
    4. Details: Hard to describe, You-Tube link shows whats going on
    5. Steps to Reproduce: Log in, open inventory window. Happens on every computer with that one character. Other characters on that account does not have this issue.




    It started recently, not sure exactly when but recent. I cannot be sure what I actually "pick" in my inventory, since the flicker changes what I pick. Its enough I dont even want to log in and use that character. Kinda rough since thats my main crafter. Ive tried to explain it, but no one else has that issue that I know if.

    which computer? 5 different computers with everything from a NVIDEA GTX 660M to a RTX 2060. I wouldn't expect it to be that, since 1: Its only the one character. Other accounts and secondary characters on the original account do not have this issue, and 2: Different computers, different drivers, and even different OS's.

    I was told to try uninstalling and re-installing. Tried - no change

    Ok, went in there and checked it out, wasn't able to determine why, but stopped the blinking. Please reply back and confirm that this is not happening any more for you, and let me know if it happens again.

    Still doing it, even faster now. I'm not imagining it, even though everyone I've talked to says I'm smoking something. @Ravalox

    @Pifester I was looking at this more on the QA server. do you have four "pets" Servant, Donkey Foal, Horse Foal, and an eagle(?) on that lot all named the same?

    Does this character ever leave the room?

    I left the room (left the house) and went back. The four pets described above started blinking and the Inventory was ok.

    The blinking in the inventory is basically the GUMP re-drawing over and over because it thinks something has changed. Scriptwise, it could be that the pets are really the issue and the error is translating to the Inventory screen. Still looking at it ...

    I think this error is what is causing it:

    Found a ribcage and a stocking below the house ... (put in your inventory)

    Also see an interesting location for a basement hatch ... :D That may need to move if I can make the issue happen again.

    Just got on, the 4 pets are on 2 separate row lots - not anything to do with the main home. I put them in storage anyways. I also pulled all the NPC vendors into my inventory.

    I started testing it some more, when I zone out and back in the flicker goes away. When I log out and back in, it returns - tested in my home, and different zones. For now, I'll just rezone every time it starts up. Thanks

    Edit: Friend mentioned it may be lot related, so I put my main home into storage, unclaimed it, then put everything back up. Still happens.
