    Anyone remember life before the interior decorator? What a pain that was!

    Now with gozas and grass/floor tiles the interior decorator needs a new feature - the ability to set how many times you want something raised!

    I spent most of Sunday raising floor tiles and gozas one tile at a time (yes I am sure I can set a macro to repeat the action 20 times, but it still raises slowly). The interior decorator currently has "Turn", "Up" and "Down", they need to add "Raise" and "Lower" . When you click raise or lower it then prompts for a number. When you click "okay" the tool then automatically raises the object to that level" (in one shot, not one at a time).

    One can dream right? Oh well, back to raising tiles....200 down...and...I don't even want to think how many to go.

    i basically have a macro set for "target last" and just hold the button down and count while things are moved up and down.
    1...........2...........3............4.............5

    it works for me. helps my OCD-ness.. heh

    just an fyi to people. The timer between tool use is only between a single item. you can raise 2 tiles faster than one. 3 tiles faster than 2... etc etc.

    Basically click one tile to raise then click another and switch back and forth. the slowest way to tile raising is to do one at a time.

    When building my tents using thousands of gozas i have to go through this pain staking process, been dreaming of this add on to the decorator for years now lol.

    I found the best way is to raise 4 at a time, like scribbles said. 1 2 3 4, then back to 1 2 3 4, alot quicker that way :). I always have a ladder on me too and stand on that to go higher instead of having to run between floors. :)

    After suffering through what seems like an eternity raising stone tiles today, I took the time to record macros.

    Use item -"Decorator"
    Pause 2000 (enought time for targeting"
    Last target
    pause 1001
    last item
    last target
    Pause 1001
    -----------------
    Repeat for height needed
    ------------------
    Thats for UOA
    In EC you can get and store targets so youd probably can macro down a bunch of times
    but this worked great when watching a movie.
    Just stand on a ladder, and everytime it resets just hurry and click your next tile when pausing, and it continues the job

    A few years back I seem to reemember to be able to change any target to "target relative" but couldent get that option now. That woulda done the same as target storing in EC

    Another tip is to use the rough blocks. From the floor you can place 3 of theese on top of each other. And, even without locking them down, you can place pavers on top, double click and move blocks to the next tile. Will give you the first 15 tiles in height without the decorator tool :)

    How about also adding the ability to move an item either right or left?
