Did they change the rules for placing ladders?

    I'm having issues placing a ladder on the first tile of a custom house, where last week it worked just fine. Anyone else having any issues?

    This is what I'm talking about with this issue. I can't place a ladder where the cursor is located in the left side picture. The right side picture is where I have placed a ladder a couple of weeks ago.

    What happens if you place it on the second floor and lower it (prolly not easy or possible, but a thought)

    Make one of those stone blocks..... and put that on your steps right there in front of where you want that ladder to go... make it flush with the house floor and you should be able to place the ladder... Funny thing about ladders is they "require" two tiles one that they are on and the one behind the steps. If they don't have it they won't place. It's possible that when you placed the ladder there previously you had blocks out front instead of stairs... or maybe you had something on the stairs. But just try making a block there and then placing the ladder. Should work I would think.

    It's kinda like the "trick" you have to do to place a ladder on the front of a keep or Castle.
