    You do not lock them down, just double click them like carpet tiles.

    Yeah just double click them. Otherwise they decay. From what I can tell it will tell you if you hoover over it there's a message if it needs to be double clicked or not. I also found an issue where I was locking down campion flowers on the floor . Since there are "holes" in the campion flowers I would lock down the floor under the flowers instead of the flowers sometimes. So it pays to take your time and be careful when locking stuff down you don't hit the custom additions by mistake.

    Also if you are trying to put them above the two levels of the castle/keep you are not allowed to build higher than the normal walls... so it won't stay.

    I have a floor tile that wont lock down or cant be picked up. says u can not see that. double clicking does nothing, shows it isn't secure. I also have what looks like pixie dust coming through tiles on ground, of courtyard, kind of sucks.the rocks in courtyard aren't as bad.

    Do that mean, this I started here, will be gone, when I get home from work? It did not say, it's to high and the floor tiles can be raised one time more, before it tells it's to high and can't be raised more.

    I do have trouble with the flor tile I stand on and the one side by it, they stay visible from outside, so I removed them again. I may build a stair in West side of this corner Tower and hope it won't be visible and block my neighbor

    Don't think you are allowed to build up that high. It should be giving you a message if you try to place things up that high. Now that said you can get on a ladder and place things and raise them higher than your supposed to but more often that not when you do that they will vanish come the next server up.

    I can place a floor tile on top of the floor tiles I have up there, so yes allowed and I placed the corner Pillar and lowered, so that is allowed too. I also placed the walls on a block and then lowered them, they did not go back in my backpack, so seem ok.
    I did not raise them higher than allowed, I tryed to raise floor tiles 2 more, but only one more is allowed. Think K fixed it so you can't raise them to high.
    I believe only the 2 floor tiles are an issue, as they will show, after I visite my neighbors castle, the first one North do not show so if K will fix the floor tiles, that are stubborn, I think it should be ok as long I don't place vendors or other stuff, that will be visible after I visite my neighbors castle, I believe it should be ok.
    I look forward to see if it's still there, when I get home from work, I hope it is :)

    So far, it is still standing. It look a little crappy vs the normal towers on the castle as I was not able to get the short walls at top of the walls, so it is a little lower and the roof make me trouble.

    And the stair is stubborn together with 3 floor tiles and may get me in trouble. I will have to speak with my neighbor, when I see him.

    What I am doing as my first phase is I am covering the 4 areas of the courtyard and plan to build walls around them for 4 keep style rooms. I am doing this by manually placing the stone tiles in exact spots below and raising them to match up height wise with the 2nd floor.

    Phase 2 which I have just started ( pictured below as well ) is to add walls to these 4 rooms. I am using the crate method ( putting stone wall In a crate and raising the crate to the desired location and destroying it, leaving the wall in its place ) but they have to be lowered manually from the 3rd floor which is a real time waster. I feel like there is something big I am missing here as far as making this process more efficient. Any ideas?

    When I place short walls on the walls, I raise the first walls to the top of the wall I want to build and place the bottom walls last.
    I will try to ICQ you, when I get home, but I'm EU time zone so it may be hard to find a time where we both are on.

    After the fourth time of placing a couple of walls in my castle only to find them gone the next day, I have pretty much given up. Would be nice if they just made the walls and such for castles available through the housing customization sign.

    Did you lock then down or dbl click them to lock them? If you use the lockdown command, they will decay. Only doors have to be locked down,

    Anyone missing tiles they thought they'd locked down please check your moving crate. They don't always decay, they go in the crate.
