    Does anybody know how?, or got a tip for placing items in places you can't see when they are obscured by the corner towers.

    Circle of transparency doesn´t help?

    Oh, and if you have gozas on the floors then you need to remove them while decoing as the CoT doesn´t work through them.

    Unfortunately Circle of Transparency only works to a certain extent. Under the first floor bridge is fine but where the towers are it does not as they are too tall for it to work.

    Not using gozos at all, was using the new grass tiles. As it is, it leaves you with white areas you cannot reach to drop anything on. You can see but not touch LOL.

    If you can stand on the tile with your char, then place the item you want there in a wooden crate in your backpack. Axe the crate and the item should land on the tile you are standing on, don't forget to still lock it down.

    I had a heck of a time decoing mine. but finally got the job done had to go up and take a few things down to place things where I couldn't see but finally got the job done. Wish you the best of luck.

    If the upper floor walls are blocking your view, tame an animal and kill it in that area, stand on the same square as the corpse, sometimes that gives you the view as if you were standing inside the house on the bottom floor. I don't know why, it just does.

    One great decorating tip for troublesome items is putting them in a small pouch, setting the pouch down on the tile you want the item and using an axe on the pouch. I used this method for placing rubble palms in the courtyard when they otherwise wouldn't let themselves be set down.
