Hi!

Tracking Monsters seems to also track certain player vendors

Tracking Animals also seems to track the placeable pet parrots

I can't imagine both of these are intended, are they?

Nope, already fixed in my next patch! Should get deployed today, should fix all of those but let me know after. I'll keep this open for now incase something is missed.

I had to get a little creative. On production UO any player-owned NPC can hold costumes but doing so does not change their body value.

It was a bug reported here a while ago but left it alone since players seemed to like it at the time.

Moving forward it did have to be tweaked a little though. Stewards and Mannequins, also confirmed on production, will no longer change form if holding a costume. Player Vendors, for now, will still be able to hold costumes but also will no longer show up as a monster in the tracking menu.

i have a new one!

Tracking Jillian (@Bocephus ) when in Wraith form, pops them up in Monster tracking as a Wraith named 'Wraith'

Whereas out of wraithform Jillian is a person called Jillian

I know that being in different forms puts you in different categories, but is it supposed to not show your target's name?
is this intended?

Different forms, like animal forms too, will actually show you as that animal. This can help players evade detection as well.

Using a disguise kit will show you as an NPC with your disguise kit name.

I BELIEVE I got most of the issues resolved with things showing up where they shouldn't I will keep this open for a few days though still. If you notice anything odd please let me know.

Rather than making a new post... Should pets and tameables fall under Animals or Monsters? or does it depend on the species?

I noticed Triton's fall under the Monster category

It depends on what it is flagged for in the body table. Monster or Animal.

If it is a monster or animal, being tamed does not change that distinction.

Currently, the Triton is flagged as a Monster. I will go on Atlantic later and find someone @ Luna with one to track and see if they classify it as a monster or animal.
