View Full Version : Is it possible?....

08-26-2009, 06:53 PM
<p>I've recently come back to the game and discovered the joys of resizing and "floating" things in my house (oh the joys of having dozens of books finally able to fit on shelves!) ...however, now my imagination is going wild and there are things I'd like to try...but I'm not sure if they are possible.</p><p>In one of the GH pictures in the "Norrathian Homeshow"  I noticed what looked like a pool table with a pool cue "leaning" against the table.  Now, is it possible to do this?  Tilt or "lean" items against others?</p><p>I'd like to make a ring of pillars around a pool, but I'd like it even more if I could make some of them "lean" or even *gasps* look as if they have fallen over.</p><p>Also, I remember reading a thread about carpets that could be walked on and were visible from the underside...was this here...or am I possibly thinking of another site?</p><p>Fill my head with all sorts of neat tips and tricks! </p>

<p>Hi <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>Some things such as tapestrys will rotate ON a wall.. however the pool cue that you mentioned was probably achieved like this...</p><p>Firstly the cue was more than likely a L&L spear which are wall mountable... if you place a bookcase on the ground make it large then you can mount the spear on the back of the bookcase.. then rotate it to angle on the back .. and presto when you move the bookcase away it will look like the thing is leaning... <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> I took a couple of screenies to show you what I mean ...</p><p>Say I want to take this spear and lean it agains the stairs...</p><p><img src="http://6xrkpq.bay.livefilestore.com/y1pqwHvHtRV07-EEWBHiMKk-9XH6EZrIl2z6jzKtGppbNqMiOM1bcMzjCCvvF3DT-I7peQXtYfcWioUL9KGPn6OAAeOjelpwIGG/EQ2_000000.jpg" /></p><p>Put out a bookcase (back facing you) so that it lines up with the stairs...</p><p><img src="http://6xrkpq.bay.livefilestore.com/y1pv4PDAVUxVK5HeNgSiJgtz0j8JNbPYZW2rJKQ6oyy_CEOOiL ykM_pMaQrwyGTivXTXTdqhtlUtZN0P9I2dpQkg83pVSjcTxkl/EQ2_000001.jpg" /></p><p>Next move the spear onto the back of the bookcase and rotate it so it is on an angle...</p><p><img src="http://6xrkpq.bay.livefilestore.com/y1puSoLkz4DUw6y6mb1JPOrlOUBXA26bziofY4jAHSdatAE6cn IhRkh_-Sm12VGHRb-GKmyf9b0mOu1-WD82fizO5sIjyU0ar21/EQ2_000002.jpg" width="600" height="348" /></p><p>Place it and remove the bookcase...</p><p><img src="http://6xrkpq.bay.livefilestore.com/y1pbZ9Pqsn4KDh4wPjz_b8QE0aVr18Z40fX6WNzBAwtH-IedzEFs5XyrtDUs7OCjIot0eFfjxprJA3qVam4_bDUZRgwrOsv ELS4/EQ2_000003.jpg" /></p><p>This can only be done with stuff that goes on walls to the best of my knowledge and the example given here I just kinda threw together for you because sometimes trying to explain it just makes for more confusion lol <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>Things dont lean / tilt in the way i think you are hoping but with a little imagination and a sturdy bookcase much can be achieved <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p><p>Hope this helped</p><p>Mistal</p>

<p>Aye... When I took the L&L spear to make a pool cue, luckily my pool table was high enough I did not have to use anything to "lean" it against the side. With a click of the mouse, it tilted and walla! I had a pool cue. *grumbles about finding another one* A standard bookshelf, redwood dividers and freeport counters are your friends in decorating!</p>
