Retrieving the extraplanar chest

Is there any way to retrieve the extraplanar chest once misplaced? Just about every single time I've conjured it, I've forgetting to pick it back up and left it somewhere. This time I've finally misplaced it for good, with all my loots. You'd think this thing would be convenient, but not if you are absent minded like myself :|

Btw, I use the magic item, not the spell. I found it on a zombie, I believe. I am looking for any method to get my gear back, including console, cheat, whateva.

Can't you just make another one? You have to be able to cast the spell again, but you get 2 scrolls with it, and I think Burne has a chance to sell them, or you could take it at the appropriate level up.

Re: Retrieving the extraplanar chest

The problem is that all his junk's gone.

There is a solution, using the console: You can reset the flag on the chest miniature, so it doesn't know there is another chest elsewhere.

Here's what you do:
1. Pass the miniature to the leftmost portrait PC.
2. Open up the console (shift + ~)
3. Type the following:
Code:
a = game.party[0].item_find(12105)
a.obj_set_int(obj_f_item_pad_i_3, 1)
That should do it.
This assumes you only have one miniature, if you have more then the leftmost guy should carry the "bad" one only.

P.S. there is probably a risk of conflict with the other chest, if you should happen to find it, or summon it on the same map.

I think I'll add a script that writes down where you summon the chest, and tells you the location if you try to summon it.

Re: Retrieving the extraplanar chest

Here it is.

It floats a message with the name of the map you last summoned it and its number.
If the map is a random encounter map (5070-5078) it will also add "LOST IN WILDERNESS!".
The text isn't as smudgy in-game, it's just Paint's crappy JPG compression.

To intall, extract the attached file to ToEE root folder.

Re: Retrieving the extraplanar chest

Thanks S.A.

That's exactly what we've been needing for folks like me that spend loads of time looking for the chest they left behind somewhere.
