    You can hide them with add ons you can walk over, like goza mats or pentagrams or bear rugs, etc. I usually stick em behind walls when I need to put them in though.

    I tried goza mats, but when I use the telepad the goza mat disappears into the floor..

    I tried various plants but can never get full coverage :(

    Use your int dec tool to raise the goza mat up one time. If that leaves a visible teleporter edge then use a second goza mat on the ground leve to cover it up.

    So place one square goza and then place a second one on top and raise it up one time. That should do it!

    I had some success covering up a few of my teleporters today with some of the new dyed carpet squares. Seems to work fairly well and I remembered seeing this topic a little while ago. :)

    I tuck mine in by east/north walls, in corners, where they can't be seen. I've also used a swamp tile (one of the champ drops) to cover them too, and it seems to work better than goza; certainly never had it pop through and show. Have just rebuilt my house/our guildshop, and I plan to try out the carpets on them again, so we'll see how that goes. Am still a tad peeved that we can't put things on them; kinda limits their use really.

    Yeah that is what I do or use the grass plants and use the house decorating tool to adjust them as necessary so they hide the transporter. I like the hiding technique using walls though.

    I ended up using stairs instead. I got a new plot 18x18 so muchmore room for stairways..so I ended up using those and then on the top level I used a heritage ladder.

    Turned out well.

    I really hate teleporters! But they should really make them dyeable :)
