Sticky requested.

I haven't been decorating as much as in Oblivion, mainly due to the fact the grab/move function is so broken in comparison to Oblivion. The only decoration I've done so far is placing a human skull on my safe in Proudspire Manor (Solitude), and damn, did that take some time to get it the way I wanted it.

Great topic, btw.

I dislike the new layout of gamefaqs. My sig no longer makes sense.

It was already a chore trying to get people to use the 'Search' function. Now it's at the bottom of the damn page. I logged in today and thought I had been modded into oblivion for something and lost my Search privileges.

Why would this be a sticky? It's kind of a stupid topic. This is a game of killing dragons and making weapons, and house decorating isn't even a tertiary priority.

Great topic! I'm afraid to use the weapon plaques though, Nettlebane disappeared from the single plaque on the top floor of Breezehome. The plaque in question also became unusable until I clicked it a few times. =/

I almost gave up... u wouldn't believe how frustrated i've been tryin to properly place my troll skulls...

Yes...yes I would ;-)

Best part with troll / human skulls is that even if you do manage to get them close-mouthed and relatively symmetrical (provided you're stacking multiples next to each other), the collision physics will eventually work them open and apart with repeated entrances / exits to the cell. Very few things are more frustrating to decorate with than skulls.

You might try either putting the back of the troll skull's head against a wall, or putting something underneath the back of it so it doesn't work its way open...if that's the problem you're having.

I'm definately going to try some of these tricks and see if they'll work out. I am plain sick of finding everything back on the floor after leaving and coming back. That ring trick sounds very useful, fine tuning is always the worst part.

Oddly enough, I bought Proudspire Manor today and set the Shield of Solitude up on a shelf and it stayed there even on the first try. Left the house, came back, was still in the exact spot I put it in. I don't know if it was a fluke or if the fact that I dropped the item, then my Housecarl picked it up and gave it back to me (<.<) and I placed it a second time made a difference.

Put some thing behind it, good insight :)
