Those Challenge rooms are so difficult to work with! It's horrible trying to decorate in them as there is more black space/dead space in the Challenge Rooms than there is in a regular room! I turn off the black space decorating in a regular room to practice for my Challenge room and I can do so much more in them, than I can in a Challenge Room!

Yes please! So much wasted space :( Either that or let the items be placed anywhere. I am sure opening up blackspace would be the easier fix.

Yep! It's beyond frustrating! I remember back before we had black space decorating for normal rooms and there was a trick with the mouse you could use where you'd "throw" the items into the spaces. I got a cheap mouse with a left and right button to do this. I wonder if that works on the gem rooms :idea: :?: I might give that a try and see if it still works.

Things that are sort of "heavy" like sofas, tables, trees, etc. can't be placed in those spaces. Floor and wall tiles, windows, paths, etc. can. Anything you can move pixel by pixel will go in the spaces, but things that move like furniture won't. An example is the new crop patches. They move the same way a sofa does so they will not go into those spaces. Hard to explain, so I hope that makes sense :)

I have tried the click and place method several times in these rooms and I cannot get it to work at all! It used to work in the beginning of these Gem Challenges!

Oh I had no idea it used to work for these challenges at all :shocked: I've been using my newer bluetooth mouse but it didn't dawn on me to test out my old mouse and do the trick until now. That sucks big time :sad: They need to allow black space for these. I don't get why it's such a problem for them to implement it!

It's an odd one, for sure and I have a feeling that 'fixing' it isn't an easy proposition.

Like the Iceland room the other day........the water area actually would take items but only certain ones and as tiresome as it is trying to find bits that work, if you can be bothered to persevere, you will find them.

Same this time around. The grass at the back had the same anomaly - it would take certain bushes which could be positioned easily, but with others it behaved exactly like black space.

Without wanting to make anyone's head explode......I don't think the blackspace is actually disabled at all :shh:

It most definitely is disabled in the Challenge Rooms! I turned it off and placed some sheds as far as they would go with the black space disabled, without having to put it in the top right corner! Then I Enabled the black space decorating and I could put the shed anywhere in the room!

That was not the case when I did my room. I definitely could not place certain items in the black space & had to tinker with what would go where.

I've never thought to edit the black space decorating setting for the GE contest rooms. Hmmm. I didn't think it was an option.

Okay, couple of things - it's not possible to turn it off in the challenge rooms because we don't have the same Home Information interface that we have in our 'normal' rooms. The challenge room Home Information interface does not have the Blackspace Decorating option in it:

Challenge Room
Image

Normal Room
Image

The room you've turned it off in, is therefore, not a challenge room.............correct me if I'm wrong? So not right really to use it for your demonstration because we all already know how blackspace works in standard rooms.

Like Theresa and I were saying, it *is* possible to decorate into the 'blackspace' it just needs to be very specific items. For that reason, I do not personally believe it's a typical blackspace issue at all - IMO, it's something to do with how those rooms are coded in order for them to be used for the challenges.

It's the same as any blackspace.

YoWorld has two types of decor items, those not locked onto a grid, and those which are. In black space, you can place those not locked to a grid, but you can't place those which are.
