    I can't seem to get this to place, even with Goza mats.. I've seen this before, any clue what I am doing wrong?

    There was a change several publishes ago and I do not believe that it is possible anymore. There are some still in place from before the publish.

    what Taz said.

    they made a change to the front doors of the castles and keeps that made it so you can no longer place a ladder on them.
    came in about the same time they let us using the courtyard in castles.

    MAYBE The devs can make this happen ..pretty sure it was a hindsight... if they dont want people to place castle /keep ladders on the steps...then please redeed the ones that remain so!!!!!!

    Lets be honest ..its a huge game changing advantage...to be able to scamper up those felluca ladders on the steps to escape....THAT or allow people to place them on the steps again??

    one or the other......needs sorting......thankyou.....

    Now since I tested teleporters in fel on the steps I love it even better game changing advantage cuz the 2nd teleporter can be set up in the cstle/keep anywhere. I could also say players with a custom house have a even better gaming advantage they can run right in their places, and hide maybe the devs should make all customized house to have walls in a door or 2 on first floor or cant commit house.

    Lets level the play field and give everyone a Castle! Oh and lets make sure everyone has the same gear!
    I was away some years and I think the devs should give me all the special event items that dropped in that period... afterall you have an unfair advantage! ;)

    nOOOOO!

    digs into trench...........its cant be both....its ladders on steps or no ladders on steps

    if ladders can no longer be placed then the ladders that already exsist should be redeeded in the next publish [end] or the devs should allow placement of ladders on the steps again....

    the devs have to make there mind up.....yes or no to ladders on castle/keep steps....

    Devs time to make your mind up

    Castle and Keep door removal and placement. Just the metal door type can be placed with south and east facing. Same security settings as current doors Door removing should be no issue. House is public or it is not. I know on my castle I would remove the doors going into the courtyard. Also teleporter placement would help.

    Yes: Very Strange... Did you bother reading the Sticky Post giving the Forum Rules? I'll quote for you:

    This is a moderated forum. Posts are moved to a private "Dev Only" forum until answered then are moved back for Public Consumption. Maybe that's why you can't find your post?

    I was looking at more of removing and placement of doors. In Castles and Keeps they are to open and no way to make areas more secure. There is no way for an owner to have any privacy in there own home. Few well placed security doors and teleporters could make towers in a castle or keep very private. Areas that only higher ranked guild members would be able get at through teleporter security settings.

    well I took this thread as a challenge - supposedly you "can't" place a castle ladder on the front steps anymore so I played around with a few ideas until I figured out how to do it - put one down on the front steps of my castle - ran up and down it about 20 times to make sure it worked - it even made it over my hedges upstairs which kind of surprised me - took it down and put my teleporter back - I don't like having to run downstairs every time I come home - it is possible but extremely weird in the way I got it to place - I doubt anyone's gonna stumble on the method by accident and I don't want them fixing the method so I'm not saying - just letting people know that you can do it, it's just super super hard :)

    hint would be nice.

    I don't think they intentionally turned it off to stop people from putting ladders there. It took place at the same time they allowed us to lock things down in the court yard.

    I believe it was an unintentional side effect.

    You can place a ladder on top of a goza mat in the court yard, but when you raise the goza mat you can't place the ladder you get the message that is in my picture imp.JPG
    same as when you raise the goza on the front step same message

    * hands Gedgerez Tesherd a pail of grease*
    Maybe if you grease his palm maybe he might not saying he will give you some hints, but if its a exploit I rather he not post it. I know its not fair to others not being able to place the ladders, and I feel real bad about it I really do. I know I should take mine down, but when I try to omg !!!!! I just can't my finger won't let me push the mouse button. Funny thing is when I recall in I use my doors not the ladder, but if THP gets them to redeed placed ladders then thats ok I'll have to live with it. hopefully it will get fixed so we all may have them.

    would be a lot better if we all can place a ladder on the steps...so hopefully the devs will fix it so...like its been said b4 after the courtyard publish they became un placeable....its prob just a hindsight they overlooked.....just saying..its either one or the other...ladders on steps or not???

    then again old kojak could tell us how to do it and it would no longer be a issue???

    Just a guess here... Try a grass or snow tile instead of a goza mat?

    Try small wooden table carpenter crafted type locked down, on top of that 2 stacks of damaged books (doom arty, the big ones), locked down, then a goza mat on top of the books, ladder on top of goza. Once ladder is placed, unlock/remove table and damaged books, chop the goza, lower the ladder with the interior decorator tool.

    That is how to make a goza floor in thin air, the wooden table and damaged books are the trick. I read that in the Homes and Castles forum here some years ago. It's probably still there, so I doubt we need to hide it from the devs.

    Oh and if on Atlantic I can give you some damaged books, I collected quite a few when I played on Pac and owned a castle.

    :)

    I think the speed hack quote was of the sarcastic variety.

    I no longer have a outside ladder on the steps at my UO hubby's and my keep. My dog Sophie Ann decided to jump up on me knocking my arm as I was going to ax a goza mat instead I ended up axing the ladder.:( I was mad, but nothing I can do about it. yes she is still alive lol to cute for her own good. I did use one of my rewards and got the teleporter love it better.

    I just recently bought a castle and I have that ladder issue, too. I am thinking of sending the castle back to the vendor and then I'll try to get my money back. ;)

    I am more annoyed by the fact, that I cannot place my Vet reward cannon just above the entrance area any more, which happened in the same context.

    I see no need to take away the ladders that are already placed. I do not have a ladder placed at front door of my castle and still see no reason to take away another person's ladder. Just my two cents.

    Let every castle owner choose: Either keep the ladder OR the castle... :)

    Another, more realisitic suggestion: Let us customize keeps and castles.

    I don't think an update is required.
