    Hola, I took on board pretty much all of the excellent advice given and came up with the following.

    Meeting room/bar room - Original


    Meeting room/bar room after rejig


    I agree with you Skylark, it looks much better with less dead pixies stuck to the wall, although i had to save a few behind the bar (got loads left now in a storage box - anyone need any... swop or very cheap if anyone needs them?)

    To Sarsmi, thanks for the dye tub hangers idea, really easy to do and looks great!

    Storage level - Original


    Storage level after rejig


    Patty, thanks for your ideas, these led to me scrapping the gozas throughout the house, and made me think of other ways of making shelving, I am happy with how this turned out in the storage room, looks more homely I think.

    Kray2s - I would love to get the fire out of the Dragons mouth but after ages messing around I've given up. If you raise the flaming head deed too high the distance between the deed and the Dragon's mouth increases beacuse of its long neck and it ends up with no effect being visible...it is hidden in its neck. Would be awsome if it had been designed to breathe fire originally...oh well.

    Faerunner - Good call with the nets and fluffy carpet. I am in the process of locating 50 ish coloured nets for my roof design...when I have those I will try out your idea..cheers.

    *Grabs waders and fishing rod and as much luck items as humanly possible and heads off into the sunset in search of those fishing nets...oh and maybe, just maybe a seahorse or ghost ship anchor... one of these days:D*

    Any further comments, critique gladly welcomed!

    kay, gonna copy/paste what I just sent a buddy, cause this dragonhead thing is keeping me up nights........

    "okay, this dragon head with the flaming head behind it is makin me nuts, cause I don't have them to test it out.. can't ya just hang the flame thing in midair a tile in front of the dragon head wall and maybe that would work? my mind is wandering, yes"

    but you prolly tried that already, right? not sure about flaming head, but I do know that a hanging shield deed thinks that a small table is a wall, and will hang.... least I'm pretty sure it thinks it's a wall :blushing: or maybe just drop a goza one tile in front of the wall, raise it two clicks and place the flaming head, and then the dragon on the wall? just tossin' out ideas :D

    I can try to mess with the flaming head/dragon head thing tomorrow. I haven't messed with flaming heads for years, not since before wall rubble came into the picture. So maybe one could be placed on wall rubble then the rubble removed...
