    From the time I saw the dragon head in Luna I just had to have one. Then we get one with Spring Clean. WOOHOO.. I decide before I waste my pts on the WRONG direction i get one of each direction on test and well test it.

    It turning into a nightmare. :sad2: I can't for the life of me make it look good on the wall, uh actaully looks more like its on the floor. It looks more like the spawn at recent events than how I thought it would look.

    I ran to town got a deco tool raise until I got the message can't raise anymore still looks like it on the floor. No i am not new to decoing.. i have deco my house many times. I am 7 yr vet and have spend hrs make things "Fit" but this one has me baffled.

    HELP!!!! Please suggestion are welcome.. Heck show me on test so I can do on my shard.

    Thanks
    Luc :sad3:

    BUMP!!

    Okay.. Does the guild JaG ring any bells. We host maze houses, give away mils in gold and items. We do have a great knowledge of decoing but even JaG needs help.


    PLEASE HELP!!!

    Luc, I have no smiley-faced fix for you, but did you try goza? sometimes you can get things higher with them.. just a thought, I haven't tried the dragon's head yet :(

    Place a square goza mat, raise it 10 times, place the dragon head trophy on the goza.

    That was the highest I could get one to go after 2 min of trying on test. It wont work if you raise the goza more than 10 times, but it did help raise the trophy from the normal positioning.

    You pretty much have to work the design of the house around it to make it not look bad. If you put a loft in your house and stick it on an opposing wall it might not look as bad to you. It could have been designed a little differently, but its not entirely that bad.

    I used a square goza to raise the dragon head.

  10. go to luna ... second floor ... measure the Dragon head there ... same height max as on test ...
    for a personal copy.

    What need of raising it higher? want it peeking thru on the floor above?

    Sheesh ... and the ones crying for "should be ONE and turnable ... east and south faceing"
    *Shakes head*
    If "turnable" minimum of 5 facings ... east, ese, south, wsw, west .... just like characters "pivot"

    Want to raise it higher ... anyone try an exterior mounting? like over a castle door? .... or under an eve?
    (forget gargoyle type mountings, till you get the 5point turn) ...

    wish I had screen shot posting capacity ... the pic above?

    restore down your browser ...get that shot on the edge of the frame ... go to luna and align with the original ...

    same height ...use paint and dot count ... same height ... take a chair to test ... compare ... same height

    Just saying ...
    Want some deco changes? think them out ...


    G'day

    There should be ONE and turnable. Only needs two facings... south and east.

    Get over yourself guy.

    Where is that ignore feature?

  13. Get over Yourself ... IF theres "one" and "turnable" ... why LIMIT yourself to east and south?
    Just because I'd like to have one facing >straight< down screen, mounted in a corner or curve ... Like it "would be" in a Northwest mounting of a corner or curve (screenie above) ... or, even more bizzarely a round "central column" or "table" ... symetrically ringed with "outward" facing dragons head ...

    For that matter, since I only suggested a "minimun" number of Facings ... I'd actually "Like" MORE than the current static eight directions .... a "full spin" of 360 degree ticks .... NOW we're talking "sufficient" .... And yeah, I know, some of those would be veiws of only the "top of the head" ... So? I can't even "see" you ... yet I can imagine what you are in appearence, if not manner ... :lick:
