    Ok here is a deco challenge - how to deco these god awful ugly rugs so that they disappear but you can still use them. Toss up your ideas. Whoever designed these bloody ugly things should be shot, could of put them in a painting or something you could tuck in a corner instead of these tile hogging monstrosities.

    All ideas welcome so put your thinking caps on. :p

    Ok been a few days an no one has dazzled me lol. I guess I am gonna try and stack em when I get the urge, the 'small' ones take up a 5 x 3 footprint, no idea on the large ones, I seriously HATE THEM.

    Edit:

    Ok I mucked around a little, stacked those 5 rugs (3 dolphin, 1 rose, and 1 skull) So that the skull one was on top as that is the only one that doesn't scream neon colors at you.

    How to stack:;
    Place down 15 square goza in a 3 x 5 grid.
    Place on first rug, it will slip under the goza.
    Raise goza by one.
    Place second rug (it will also slip under) Repeat for all rugs you have. Looks like this:

    Then deco round the edge with stone and stuff as shown. I will muck around with dif colors and stuff later, just wanted to test so used bronze stone. I don't think it looks too bad and certainly gets rid of the most offensive rugs.

    The top rug being visible lets you see when it has 10 maps on it, so you know the ones under will have the same amount if you harvest them at the same time.

    To harvest them from here just take out the steps in front and your cursor will get the edge of each rug. I still need to test that you can harvest by clicking on the edge but wont tell til they get some stuff in them lol. If not then I guess will need to go again.

    We shall see

    You can still stand on em too, well at 5 rugs high :p

    Also I am wondering if you take a rug and chop it down to 1 tile in the middle if it will still spawn the stuff ? I guess I will take it to test centre and check it out one day lol.

    Oh that would be sweet to chop them down to 1 tile. I won’t claim anymore because they are so ugly

    sometimes I wish they would be smaller
    but I like the size of them now
    they fit the décor for the area I put them in

    And I don't place them on gozas or pavers
    I'm too afraid they would break, like a lighthouse did
    I usually like to do deco contest, so always changing things around

    but I have to say, I like what you did with the skull rug
    looks awesome

    How do you chop these to one tile and what do they look like then?

    I also cannot do much with them for their largeness but do favor them for their drops.
