  2. The best way to get an object back to a specific location is to place a dummy object at the location and then move the original object to the dummy to reset its position.
  3. In this type of environment you must be very careful using '='. If the two values are not exactly the same your = will return false. =<, => or within x of object are much better choices in an interactive environment.
I usually name the dummy objects as if you use more than one or two things start to get confusing.
Thank you for this chickentree, I appreciate the encouragement. It was indeed in the way I was re-positioning the object and when I deleted that the issue went away - lol of course by then I had recreated the world at least 12 times and was ready to lose it.

Dummy's are great, and was what I used in the end. Thanks for helping our class in these forums. It makes a huge difference.
