at one point all the gates disappered from my HUD and screen, and i had to quit out to get them back. this is in 1.006.

So the gates themselves weren't even around or was it just the minimap and map?

Ditto. I thought it was related to my earlier portal problems, but perhaps not.

For me, they disappeared from the screen and minimap (I think, I'm uncertain about the minimap but I believe so) and as far as I could tell simply weren't there at all rather than not visible. They were still visible on the world map though. I didn't investigate too thoroughly since I thought it was just me. A quit and restart fixed it.

Could they be being mistakenly removed by the entity cleanup routine you put in?

This has happened to me as well. Might have been v1.004 or v1.006, can't remember. The waypoint gate in one of the areas just disappeared. I could still get home via a portal and back to the area from my house, but the waypoint still wasn't showing up. Save and restart fixed things.

I had the same problem this evening, after I did the reinstall. The gates were on the map, but not on the screen or minimap. A save and restart fixed them. It was after playing for a while, maybe an hour or so, and the gates had been there until then. It happened twice, and with 1.006.

Yeah, I think the purge stuff in 1.005 is catching the gates also. :( Which means I'll be working on 1.007 a little sooner than I expected.

Poor Shadow... the more cool things he does, the more problems we find for him...

Law of unintended consequences yadda yadda yadda.

I've done that a few times, I know how you feel. At least you've got a good covenant of forgiving players. :)
