    Icon12 Home-made walls tutorial (image heavy)

    Hello everyone

    I figure that most of us probably want to have private bathrooms, at least, in our in-game homes.


    Unfortunately, the FreeRealms coin shop doesn't offer a ready-made wall.


    However - it does offer something that can be persuaded, if at times reluctantly, to become walls.


    What is this mysterious item? Wall shelves!



    How does this happen?


    Well, it begins by placing one against a wall where you want to begin your home-made wall.


    Then you rotate it until it is vertical, as shown.


    (I'm using long shelves, and highlighted the shelf to make it stand out)


    Next, place some of those square blocks as a temporary "wall" to place the next shelf against.

    Then place the second shelf (again highlighted) so that it overlaps a bit in the wide parts, and leaves no gaps in the narrow parts.


    It may take a bit of experimentation to learn exactly how far away from the first shelf to put the blocks for placing the second. Don't worry - you'll figure it out over time.


    Then move the cubes to make another temporary wall for the next pair. You'll need to make them overlap the two shelves that you've already placed.

    You want the edge of the second shelf to just barely show through the cubes, and then adjust the third shelf till it lines up against it "just right."



    Then move the blocks out again for the 4th shelf...

    Repeat as needed till you get your wall long enough, then remove the blocks.


    You can also use blocks to align another shelf (I recommend using a short one) over any doorways you create, for a more "finished" look.



    Viola! You now have walls!





    Alternatively, if you don't need a privacy barrier, the shelves can also be placed in a way that leaves gaps and provides only an indication of where one room ends and another begins.


    For example, this picture shows a "sitting area" and a "dining area" partially segregated by a less-overlapped pair of shelves.



    Hopefully this concept will help you expand the potential of your own homes.


    Enjoy!

    Pleased to be of service.

    Since someone asked in the FreeRealms forums, I'll add this in case anybody here is also curious.

    The same method *can* also make floors.

    However, the vertical alignment isn't quite perfect -- even when you make sure you always have the beveled / flat side turned the same way.


    So rugs may not rest properly on floors constructed of shelving.



    Enjoy!
