Lowered Wooden Walkways

Lowered Wooden Walkways

This trick will let you place usable walkways at lower-than-normal elevations. The general idea is to use the Magic eraser to erase the platform of the “Wooden Platform” and then keep the stairs that the designer wants/needs. Sounds simple, but it is in fact quite complicated. Possibly the only way known to achieve fully-functional wooden walkways at a level less than the norm.

With wooden wall tiles on only one of its faces the platform will give you only 2 different orientations. To alter between one or the other, left click on your mouse when you select the platform but do not release the button. Move the mouse slightly left or right until the platform alters its orientation to the one you need then release the button.

Step 6 :

Simply delete everything except for the stair segment you need to continue your project.

If stairs are added you can make the top of the walls accessible to your forces for added defense.…
