    Okay, I know this would be better with pictures but I think some of you will know what I am talking about.

    I am trying to place south facing water troughs on the top south corner of my keep (against the front, one tile away from the stone ledge). I keep getting this message that says "Cannot place multi-tiled add-ons near the entrance" I have tried placing gozas and raising them up and it doesn't seem to work. Is there a way to do that or is it impossible?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    I am also wanting to raise a large fishnet (the deeded one) a few spaces above the floor, I have seen it done so I know its possible just can't figure out how. Yes, I did try placing gozas and raising them but you can't place the fishnet on top of the gozas :(

    Thanks again!

    if I'm remembering right, fishnets is one of those things that you have to give the lockdown command to use the deco tool on, even tho they don't need to be locked down

    Someone very kindly placed my fishnet for me, so I can't give full details, but I remember he used the pile of broken books from Doom gauntlet.

    It was actually rather funny cause as soon as he got there and I showed him where I wanted them it dawned on me what I could do. Instead of using south facing deeds he used east facing and "axed" part of it.

    This is my first keep and I have been having a ton of fun decoing it. I will post some pics soon if anyone is interested in seeing it.
