    Hello everyone!

    We will soon be releasing the long-requested tool for POT owners to be able to clear their Grass and Trees! Up to now, many players have had to rely on the inelegant application of other POT decos (like pavers) to clear grass and trees.

    Player Owned Town owners and Stewards will now have access to these new POT decos designed explicitly for Grass and Tree removal. These will operate similar to normal POT decos, however will be able to be freely placed on sloped surfaces, and not interfere with the placement of existing or future lot markers or POT decos.

    POT owners will observe a new toggleable button in their deco hotbar to "Show POT Tree Removers" for ease of visual placement.

    For testing purposes, a public container has been added to the entrance of Hometown on the QA server for POT owners to grab a handful of each of the deco tools to test with. As with any new tool, we expect there to be edge case bugs, and we're also interested in player feedback on the feature.

    @Alley Oop Stewards also. Been testing in Pax, tools work great IMHO so far

    Multiple sizes for Trees and grass or trees only. Works over already placed lots and deco. Lots and deco can be placed after you use it also.
    Works on uneven or hilly terrain, but does not flatten it (Just an FYI, wouldn't expect it to)

    So I'm liking this a lot. More control for a PoT 's

    earth... mostly
    in addition to the larger square sizes, i'd like to see more "road" sizes like 8x32, 8x64, 16x64, 16x128 etc.

    i'm not clear on the difference colors of the box means. red or green. they both seem to do the same thing.

    in accordance with the rule of always asking for more, i'd love to see a version of these that also laid down stone roadways or "well-worn paths". :) . this would help with roads on hills and across small bumps.


    all in all, excellent work team!

    My only comment would be it would be nice to see the square at the base on the ground not just in the air as the bigger ones it can be harder to judge where they land

    These work great. It makes sense that they will remain on that spot. I like how they don't take any of the item limits and I like that I can place a lot marker on top of them with no problems. Well done!
