Thread: Have useless decorations? Make a ruler!

    Have useless decorations? Make a ruler!

    So after the last update I had all these nifty flags, bushes, and other things that no longer had much usefulness. So I thought why not make a ruler out of 'em!

    I used the ruler in my last base design and I found it very helpful for finding the center as well as aligning other portions of the base.

    To make the ruler you need the following:
    -4 torches
    -4 cornflower beds
    -4 sunflower beds
    -26 flags (and windmills)
    -1 ancient skull (you could probably get away without this one)

    The most important thing is getting the torches in the middle but you can alternate flags and flower beds to get some additional reference points that help align other portions of your base.

    Here is an image of what the ruler looks like:


    edit: my blue bars might be slightly off, had trouble getting them to align properly in powerpoint but trust me it be the center.

    How ingenious! I can't use it though as I refuse to have any other flag other than the Union Jack! Rule Britannia!

    Actually these "useless" decorations do still have a use. You can funnel with them since attacking troops will walk around them then continue in a line along that new path. I use decorations to encourage groups onto spring traps or mini bombs.

    Thumbs Up VERY creative!

    Awesome idea! Thanks for sharing with us! Although, I still attempt to use them to funnel troops into mortar range :-)
    Two thumbs up to you!!

    EDIT: Sarth and I had the same thought around the same time :-P
