    Okay... I understand that this must have been some quick fix for something that "must" have been causing issues, but really, it's time to look at it again and come up with a REAL fix for whatever the original issue was.

    I'm on the second floor of my L-shaped house, trying to place a bed along the south wall. There's absolutely nothing even remotely "entrance"-like about where I'm standing.

    Please fix this.

    Modern Britannian zoning ordinances require that all beds be placed in the center of a room so as not to thump against the wall and wake the neighbors. :eyes:


    Please, think of the children! :lol:


    You may now return to your regularly scheduled crazy.

    Since it's the South wall, sounds as if it thinks you are trying to place the bed in front of the door. since the door is on the South wall on the first floor.

    That would make sense except for one minor thing... I'm trying to place it in the southwest corner of the room... which is at least 1 complete tile away from the door.

    No, what happened was sometime in the recent past, they decided that the first two rows north and the first row east on any housing plot are ineligible for multi-tile object placement. Now, if your item starts in 3 north and extends into 2 north, that will usually go. But if it starts in 2 north and extends east or west, it won't go at all.

    No idea why they made the change, and of course it was one of those weird stealth changes. The fact that it's displaying a specific error message however does indicate that it was an intended change.

    However, the change makes zero sense from a player side of view, and I presume it was meant to fix an exploit of some sort. Instead of fixing that exploit though, instead, we're stuck with some weird "fix" that really needs to be looked at again.

    multi-tile items on any southern wall in a castle is not allowed, including the interior walls and the corner rooms, any level... I chopped a stone table in my smithy corner one day completely forgetting this silly "fix" and was unable to place it back in that spot
