Just confirming that I did look for the hidden chests with my GM avatar.
This is actually a known thing and one not simple to resolve (or it would have been done already). You cannot nest treasure maps like that. If I recall, the limit is one, meaning you can put one map inside of one chest that is linked to another map, but if you go deeper than that, things get lost. NWN apparently does not do well with nested objects like that.There's no way to tell what you did four years ago, but there haven't been any changes to it for at least that long.
I'm sure you did. The thing is they don't really exist anywhere until the location is found with the map. It's actually the map that stores the "treasure chest" and its contents, so ultimately, there's nothing to find with the GM avatar.
wow.. okay.. I must have been lucky the first time I did this, cause I had 10 chests linked. O.o I used the same principle as the first time. The only difference is that it was spanned over a larger distance (mistone, alindor) while this time it was all in a relatively closed area on mistone.
It may have been possible. Distance doesn't matter as the system doesn't know how far it is from one area to another. As my memory slowly comes back to me, I seem to recall that the problem comes with logging out with treasure maps on your character. It is the character saving process that does not work well with the way nested items are saved. So if you set them all up and didn't log out, you might be OK, but again, I would not count on it...at least not with anything valuable.
