    Sticky please!

    Also don't forget everseek.com -- another lovely furniture resource. Not every site is for every person, and the more resources we have, the happier everyone is!
  3. Afista Well-Known Member

    Ooooh thought for sure I added Everseek : / Whoops.

    Will add it to top as soon as we can edit a post... if we can edit a post... can we please edit our posts?! lol

    Consolidated Projects List - links to different decorator's project threads

    (again, will add this to the top post if / when we get the ability to edit posts)

    The link of " Looking for a Decorator,,,, look here " does not work. Get message " you do not have permission".
  11. Afista Well-Known Member

    That's odd, the initial link to that is the same as the one Neversea posted a bit further down to the consolidated works list.

    Either way, it's not good because we cannot edit our initial posts to add decorator's info to the top in that post. So, I made This Page with links to decorator's albums and it's sorted by server they are on. If there are more decorator's who have albums set up somewhere, let me know and I'll add you to the list!

    Hey all,

    Okay! I've edited the top post with the links mentioned in this thread and cleaned up the stickies at the top of the forum. Everything should be much easier to access now. :)

    If you have any more links to add, just send me or Amnerys a PM and let us know. We're happy to add to the link list to help y'all out.

    Thanks,
    Dexella

    what i really wish is that we could get a system in eq2 similar to the one in eq1. It has something called free placement- which means that you can choose to put something where you want. and it has other modes like wall - so if you want to put something on a wall you can but if you prefer to lay your picture flat on top of something to make a table out of it, you can. of course, i also wish our weapons and shields were placeable like in eq1 too. i love decorating there- but they don't have the big pretty houses or all of the flowers and pets and things like eq2 has.

    I also wish we could get some pop-up text boxes for our houses like they have in dungeon maker.

    Are you referring to the thing that allows you to add flavor text to the mobs or the window that shows all the stuff that you can place in the dungeon?
  19. suka Well-Known Member

    no- the pop-up text you buy in the marketplace that gives red or blue, etc, text when you get close but you can't see the box in the published dungeon. in a house, i would simply bury the box that i would make tiny. I have also seen these boxes used in guild halls where you enter the door and you get a big "Welcome to ...". I would like mine to say "The book on the table will tell you all about this house" or something to that effect - before i knew about player written books, i always assumed the books were looted like the others and beyond checking them out if i liked the cover because i wanted to go quest for it or loot it, i never read them.

    guess i could put up a sign though - maybe people would read the sign
