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!

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

Normal Room

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.


I did the demonstration in a regular room to get the screenshots! But, I had the same issue in the Challenge room with the shed and it would only go in the same areas as a regular non-challenge room with the black space disabled!

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.


That's the best I've ever heard that described. Nice...

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.

I give them a hard time when I feel it's deserved, but even I couldn't believe them to be so bloody-minded as to disable that feature deliberately.

If it's as simple as turning an 'off' switch 'on' surely they'd have done it by now?

Those challenge rooms don't behave as standard rooms for other reasons too (can't remember all of them but don't think teleport arrows work in them for example) so maybe whatever it is that they've done to them to make the challenge room ready, doesn't allow for this feature to be used?

Thanks for the explanation about the blackspace though - where did you read that please? I'd like to see it in context, if possible?

Re: Please enable black space decorating for Gem room contes

Postby JulieHootieScraps (108384802) » Tue Apr 16, 2019 7:48 pm

The entire area across the width of the room where my shed is, is where the blackspace begins. I nudged the shed as far back as I could place it, without it returning to my inventory. So that's a pretty large area that won't allow certain types of items -- as Liam said, the ones that are gridded like couches, most buildings, etc aren't able to be placed in that area or above it in the room. That's about half the space there. If would be very limiting if you didn't cover the entire room with grass or other background-type decor to use to hide things.

It gets very discouraging and frustrating when you're trying to do a contest room and have to work against blackspace in addition to a poor connection, game glitches, and other factors. Patience and persistence is the key, and sometimes there just isn't enough of those two things OR time!

The best way to describe it is to show you.

This is an item not locked to the "grid":
Image

And this is an item which is:
Image

The black space in YoWorld stops items on that grid from being placed outside of the grid, when you turn black space decorating on, the item can be placed there, but still moves like its stuck on a grid. Other items are free and can be dragged anywhere you like (ie. floor tiles).

It seems like, for whatever reasons, the gem event rooms are set to black space decorating off, and that means you can only place things which are not on the grid there.

For example, this is a gem event room from the Icelandic Escape theme. The floor tile can be placed on the Home, which is black space, but the sofa can't.

Image

And this isn't an official explanation, but that's how the items are coded in YoWorld. I think Bliss (the YouTuber) mentioned it in a video once.

It is frustrating. They should remove it. It takes more time trying to decorate without the item spawning back into your invo. Please remove it Vikings?

I got insane carpal tunnel using the trackpad on my old laptop way back, and that mouse worked so well! Really stupid that they don’t allow black space for the gem rooms. Wish they’d chime in on this.

I'm neutral about this.

If black space decorating was enabled in a Challenge room it would have to be the empty room as the others have items anchored in them! Make it easy and give the one empty room, so everyone has the same blank slate to work with!

That is not what we're talking about. Black space decorating does not refer to black spaces in the rooms and or what device you're using. It refers to the ability to put certain items in the black spaces. Our homes have the option to enable black space decorating, so the gem rooms should, as well.
