    I ve been decorating my keep and getting ideas from this forum. This is a great place. Thanks for all the Pics and ideas.

    I saw a pic with a ladder on the steps of a keep. I m pretty sure that a while back I saw directions but I cant find them now that I m ready to decorate. The further back I go the more posts I see about placement in keeps castles or near doors is messed up. I think I remember something along the lines of place goza raise it place ladder on top. Is that right? If so why cant I play goza on my steps? is it cause im too green or cause there is some problem placing? reading back I see there was a problem placing near doors. Is that still an issue? Do I have to be in the old client? Thanks for help.

    Stand where you want the ladder to be. Double click a square goza mat and target yourself (or your health bar). This makes the goza drop to your feet. Now raise it three times and place a north castle style ladder on top, chop the goza mat. You have to step on the stairs before you can use the ladder, but it should work. :)

  7. I was able to follow these instructions to get a ladder placed in the front of my castle, but I'm not able to use the ladder to enter the second floor. I can get on the ladder & walk up, but when I get to the top I just fall back down. Do I need to do anything else? The steps I took were used square goza, targeted myself, raised it 3 times using interior decorator, placed north facing Castle ladder on mat. Then I tried entering both with & without the mat in place, but I just fall off the top.

    Thanks for any assistance.

    Luke, there is an issue I just read about with heritage ladders - see if you can grab yours without redeeding it (that might be the problem).

    The thread about it and fix is here.

    Has to be out of special wood and then you can dye the deed with natural dyes.

    I have not tried it lately and by the sounds of it I shouldn't remove mine to try lol. Which goza are you using? I believe you have to use the single tile one, not the 2 tile one.

    Any special wood: oak, ash, etc. If you make something out of special wood then use the deed it can no longer be dyed. So what I usually do is make the item out of plain wood, place it and see if I can use it, then make it out of oak and dye it.

    I did did this recently at my Keep just outside Vesper Fel. (Pac).

    It took quite a few tries but I got the ladder where I wanted in the end.

    The method I used was to place a square Goza mat on the step where you want the ladder. You do get "cannot place next to door or stairway" messages if you target yourself. I found though, if you stand on the right edge of your outer steps, then take one step to your left and target the goza on a spot not quite on the far right edge of the step nor on the ground, the mat will appear on the far right of the steps. It does take a few tries.

    Once the goza is placed use your Decorator Tool to raise it up once, then try to place the ladder on top of the mat. Again, it may take a few tries so have patience.

    Once the ladder is placed axe the mat. Viola!

    Hope this helps.

    btw is was in 2D client.
