    I've recently placed a customized plot with a character that (after 10 years) just got tired of the ridiculous spawn outside her Villa and decided to try her hand at various home designs... Now that she's seen so many wonderful designs here, she wants to create a place that people will mark a rune to - just to come to visit... Now don't tell me you don't have a couple of runes marked just for that purpose or I'll tell you that you simply have not played long enough. Memories of times past are what keep most of us here, or am I wrong? Sosaria is a world unto it's own, a world that's just filled with reasons to hang around...

    Sorry, nostalgia's a ***** sometimes ya know...

    So here's my question:

    If you'd be so kind as to look at the image below and tell me if I can place flowers or anything small in the area indicated... I'm just beginning to understand walls and supports better, and am experimenting with "materials"...Oh, and yes, I know the current design is horrid, so just bear with me people... ;) This will, I warn you, be the first in a very long string of "placing" questions to follow - most likely sooner than later.

    This is from my experience only, so if someone else knows of another way, I hope they share it, also.

    The only way I know of to place flowers/items on an area like that is to go into customization and remove the walls so you can place the items, then raise them a few times with an interior decorator (this prevents them from going into the moving crate when you go back into customization), then go back into customization and place your walls back again. Then lower them with the interior decorator to where you want them.

    The only hazard is that you will need to raise them again any time you go into customization mode and re-lower them when you are done.

    Thx so much, M'Lady... I don't mind the effort at all, it's not that much to ask...

    ground hugger plants (like campions) sit right down in those spots, I've used it often..... other plants are trickier, but they do sit down.... and you can just use a ladder to place them there

    Try doing full circle of transparancy to drop them .In some circumstances that's all it takes . While it removes the wall it shows the tile

    Another good way to place items in screwy spots is..
    Get a small crate you amke add item in it then drop the box were you want it to go..
    Most times it will go were you want, then axe the box/brake it using a axe..

    You do not lock the box down , you cant brake it if you do..
    Very handy litle way , plus the ladder also is handy for placing gozas to place items on that then remove the goza after..

    Target your self with the goza and it will place it....
