    Hi, I have recently purchased 2 ivy sets for my 4-story ornate greenhouse (no shopfront) house on a village lot. I managed to place all pieces, even on iron support beams (which I thought were the problem, as the placement of this plant set was quite hard), except the corner pieces - there is no way to place them. Also, if you rotate them, they do not rotate around the Z-axis, so I seem to not be able to make left/right corners. Another, lesser issue is that they have to be shrunk as much as possible to fit, despite the fact the wall space is a lot bigger than the ivy piece itself, so they should fit. To make a long story short - you are unable to place 100% size ivy on a standard first story wall space, which seems to be the same for all houses (?).

    I am using:
    Linux boadicea 5.13.4-200.fc34.x86_64 #1 SMP Tue Jul 20 20:27:29 UTC 2021 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux, Fedora release 34 (Thirty Four) with Nvidia M1000M graphic card (vendor drivers, stable branch), Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6820HQ CPU @ 2.70GHz, 64 GB of RAM.

    as designed. @platnya, the corner pieces were not designed to place on walls. they are two sides and a top, to make the three sides of a corner. here is one placed on the corner of a 4x4x4 block.

    Hi, this is surprising and quite disappointing, in COTO shop it is advertised as an exterior house decoration with it placed on a corner wall. The example house has a support beam protruding, but other pieces, including overhang ones were placeable on my house, so it is a logical thing to assume that such a huge protrusion is not required. And this piece is called "top wall corner overhanging English ivy" and in my house - Four story ornate greenhouse house (no shopfront) - I do have protruding support beams. In nature, ivy does not need huge protrusions to form a corner cluster - it starts with a leading stem placed on top of a protrusion, being secured by adventitious roots that grow into the smallest cracks in the wall. The whole structure is very stable, even on a small surface. To make a long story short, I still think it is a bug - either in the design (this design makes this piece unusable for most houses while it is useful for all of them) or the description of an item.
