<p>I truly need something cone-shaped without too much added onto it. Have some holiday ideas and without revealing too much, need an item thats cone-shaped and hopefully gets fairly big. (kinida important to get big)</p><p>Also, wanting to do multi-paned windows...like on victorian homes...but wanting to go original from vampiric.</p><p>Like the hungry burnyai...FEED ME with your very creative minds...please?  =))</p><p>I searched many of eq2dec pages, including miscel...and came up dry.</p><p>And for sure, I WILL post results if I ever get it done. : P</p><p>Thanks in advance!</p>

<p>The only thing I can think of off the top of my head that's sort of conical and comes to a point is the baneful bone arrangement.  I'm not sure how large it gets, but you might be able to mickeymouse something if you laid tiles on it at an angle, perhaps?  Not knowing what you have in mind, I don't know if that would work...</p>

The vellum powder bottle is sort of cone shaped at the top. Maybe some kind of cup or chalice? Maybe you could build one by angling tiles or shelves. Maybe there is some trophy that's cone shaped. Also, I once built a conish shaped top using several sharp blue crystals.

Oh also some lamp shades are conical. There is a tinkered item that has two cones but I forget what it's called exactly - power supply? And obelisk gravestones are semi conical too, in a squarish sort of way =p

<p>It's hard to really recommend things without knowing what it is, but for your cone, try the tizmak drum.  It gets pretty big and is fairly cone-shaped, especially if you put together one bigger one and one smaller one.  Other than that, the only really cone-ish shaped thing I can think of is the frost-twisted tree stump, which isn't really an exact cone but it does scale really huge.  If neither of those will going to work for your project, I recommend taking about 6-7 pillars or banners in the color you want and using the circle tool in the layout editor to make them into a cone.  Dividers and tiles can also do this but they're kind of a pain to work with since they're not triangular.</p><p>For victorian windows, I'm fond of sticking the crafted ovals in things.  Try the sumac cabinet with an intricate/ornate/elaborate stained glass oval inside it.  The cabinets can be sunk almost flush against the wall in most houses.</p>

<p>The new candy corn from NotD is coneshaped and does get pretty big.  Also, if you've done your prayer shawl and you got your summoning crystal house items, the crystals flipped over would be coneshaped (and clear) as they are cut in a typical diamond cut.  I"ll keep thinking....</p><p>Nephredil</p>

<p>One of the tomb stones, from NoTD, is cone shaped.....well almost.  It's tapered.</p>

<p>Lots of good cone suggestions<img src="/eq2/images/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" /> I don't have any of those but I am doing paned windows in my uncanny estate by using square pictures in frames, then taking a cloudy sky tile and shrinking that to fit just inside the edges of the frames. You can stack and arrange them to make multipaned windows. Starry sky squares work just as well for a night time affect. I did need to use the layout editor to get the tiles to appear just a bit inset in the frames.</p>

<p>what about some of the candy corn from the Nights of the Dead Celebrations?</p>

<p>so many good suggestions to steal! i'd also maybe try the 'celebration of spring' sculpture from tinkerday, or two or three, at different rotations, to create a solid cone effect. and they can get pretty large IIRC.</p>
