    First off... Thank you Thank you Thank you! I'm sure this was a lot of work but these walls really needed deco!

    Did a quick once over for the crafted palisade walls for floor and wall deco surfaces and only found one missing spot. See area circled on red on gated palisade wall, though it is on the other sides of the tower as well. The lamp shown is as high as I could place it. Not a big deal but this area has a deco surface on the long version of the gated wall. I tested with the wall light you suggested.

    Question: Should we be testing for deco surfaces on ceilings (in appropriate areas)? If so is there a specific chandelier you suggest to start testing with?

    Thank you again! I'll do more testing over the next couple of days.

    Diagonal muntin wall light works on interior and exterior walls, but sinks into the trim wood outside. This light also sticks to the ceiling and probably shouldn't.
    Also worked: Soltown Catacomb Key, a house deed (!), Candy Cane Wand. bulletin board paper, axe, sword, 2 different shields

    Does not stick to interior or exterior walls: Iron Wall Lamp, Painting (Portrait of a Lady) , Common Cloak, Brass Runic Letters, crafted Elven Wall Sconce, Small Wall Garland Swag, Wall Candle, Wall Shelf, Wall Torch.

    For these gated pieces of castle wall:
    Dark Stone Spiked Short Gated Castle Wall
    Dark Stone Spiked Long Gated Castle Wall
    Dark Stone Spiked Ladder Long Gated Castle Wall
    White Stone Short Gated Castle Wall
    White Stone Long Gated Castle Wall
    White Stone Ladder Long Gated Castle Wall

    The area above the gate allows me to place the Diagonal Muntin Wall Light, but the deco surface seems to be at a right angle from the wall so the light sticks on its side. (it is possible this is a problem with the light but I don't think so since it attaches to other parts of the wall properly)
    This is true on both sides of the gate.

    Keep'em coming, I'll do rounds of adjustments in the coming weeks as they build up -- thanks so much! Also, I'll be putting in summaries of what's been identified etc shortly.

    Please always use the exact name of the piece you're showing me plus the exact name of what you're using to decorate with that's having the problems :)

    @Elgarion, are the deco supposed to be able to be used on walls that are placed on POT land or only on deed land?

    I'd imagine for the most part, we'd want those objects to work on the walls on both lots and as POT deco. That's another thing I'll look for when I'm adjusting any of these deco items you guys are reporting. So report any aberrations such as that please. Any deco item reported as not placing on the walls, while I'm adjusting the deco, I'll also be sure to make certain it works in POTs as well ;)

    I'd love to see the "bonfire" able to be placed on the top of castle wall towers.

    Sorry, I'm falling behind on a few things. I just got the crafting thread for underutilized ingredients visited yesterday. I'll spend some time on this very soon.
