    Use 2 small tables. a bulletin board, and stuff you want to decorate with. Stack the 2 tables under the house sign ( use 1 table if you dont want the house sign to high I used 1 in the pic) . bounce the bulletin board on the tables to place it above the house sign. Now the decorating part I accidently lock down the top small table and not the bulletin board which gave me the idea to lock a toku basket and a flower under the sign. some stuff will fall to the ground, but you should be able to lock it down or secure it as long as you dropped it above the house sign or on the table. To get it to work you need to drop your decorations on the house sign.here is my results. Might work on customized houses not sure because I don't have one. [​IMG]

    Thank you! I've always meant to mess with this and just never got around it. It's nice to have a little tutorial to keep the rest of us from having to figure it out. :)

    ohhhh Lord Drakelord, love the round table, nice job!

    Lady Michelle, decorating the signs once again gave me the bug to get vines somehow on the outside of my walls, and dang! they're lookin' okay! on the south walls only the left facing corner vines have gone down except on the stairs and the house sign, but the right facing ones work on the east walls.... the problem was always that they looked, from the inside, like they were sitting on the floor, but I don't seem to have that trouble now

    so of course now I need mountains more of the right type vines!
     
  9. ahh did you have to throw them up like with the house sign using tables and then run inside to lock them down? I like the look and may have to toss a few vines on our walls also.

    nope, just turn on circle of transparency and toss them in until they sit in the right place.... locking down becomes a bit tricky cause you'll need to run in to a spot where you can see them :) you'll know if they're in the right place cause most of the bottom portion of the vine is visible on the outside of the wall.. if they're sitting on that little curbstone foundation they don't lock down, tho.... and if you figure a way to get the flat ones to sit correctly please let us know!

    Actually, you should be able to use object handles. If you have a lot of stuff, that might be harder, but you CAN lock down items using object handles. :)

    Been a while since I posted, this is my sign deco, I tried getting a mailbox in but no matter how you get it to place it looks decidedly UGLY. Pity they didn't make it look like an old guildstone or something, that plastic k-mart box look really doesn't do much for inspiration :(

    I know this is an old thread, and I apologize, but I was wondering where you get the round table or how do you make it, if it is made?

    That is an abbatoir made from yew wood, raised up by placing square goza mats and raising them a few times, then it has a couple of tables placed underneath. Pretty cute idea eh?

    If you want different colored tables you can dye the unused abbatoir deed with the new plant dyes or with the ToT dyes as long as it is made from special wood (oak, ash etc). So make the oak abbatoir, don't place it, and dye it with the color of your choice. Unless you happen to like one of the wood hues in which case you don't need to worry about dying.
     
  21. thank you for answering the question above, yes I stole the idea from this forum :)
