How to get perfect arrangement for EXTERIOR

Now, you must have gone through some frustration when your exterior arrangement kept running out of order in Restaurant City. icon:face2_pout

For example,

icon:h_annoy I want a icon:o_flairlamp posticon:o_flair to be at the front but it kept hiding behind something else. 

icon:h_annoy I want those icon:p_kiBIG treesicon:p_kito be at the back, but it kept coming to the front and cover up all my other decorations.

icon:h_annoy I just can't settle down the icon:p_hana05 flowerbed icon:p_hana05 nicely... 

So, here's the SOLUTION icon:mark3_sign03 icon:body2_a_punch

Before starting, we've to bear one thing in mind that we're going to arrange and decorate everything in layers

Take one of my complete design as an example. icon:a2_down2icon:a2_down2icon:a2_down2

First of all, icon:body3_te03

icon:no01 Group all items farthest back as Layer 1.


icon:no02 Group items directly in front of Layer 1 as Layer 2.


icon:no03 Group items directly in front of Layer 2 as Layer 3.


icon:no04 Group items directly in front of Layer 3 as Layer 4.


icon:no05 Group items directly in front of Layer 4 as Layer 5.


Okay, now just bear in mind and remember the arrangement that you wish to have in LAYERS.

icon:num_1_one First, start with doors and windows.

icon:o_flair Doors or windows are always at the back no matter when you arrange it, so just take it easy here.


icon:num_2_two Save and reload.


icon:num_3_three Put in Layer 1 which you've in mind that they're gonna be the farthest back.


icon:num_4_four Save and reload.


icon:num_5_five Put in Layer 2 on top of Layer 1.


icon:num_6_six Save and reload.


icon:num_7_seven Put in Layer 3...

icon:o_flair After reloading, you might noticed that the layering arrangement is not righticon:mark3_sign01icon:face_shout already at this point. Layer 2 has gone to the back of Layer 1. But, don't worry and keep going icon:mark3_sign03 

icon:num_8_eight Save and reload.


icon:num_9_nine Put in Layer 4...

icon:o_flair Layer 2 is now fixed but Layer 3 (Flowerbed, windmill blade, trees...) is out hiding farthest back behind. Ignore and keep going.


icon:num_1_oneicon:num_0_zero Save and reload.


icon:num_1_oneicon:num_1_one Put in Layer 5...

icon:o_flair Same thing, Layer 3 is now fixed and with Layer 4 fall back hiding behind. You should have realized by now on how the layers arrange themselves every time you've reload the game.


icon:num_1_oneicon:num_2_two Save and reload.


icon:num_1_oneicon:num_3_three So now we have come to the last layer and the last layer usually always fall back farthest behind.  


icon:num_1_oneicon:num_4_four Save and reload again without doing anythingicon:mark3_sign01Which means, you should have double saving and reload at icon:num_1_oneicon:num_2_two.


icon:num_1_oneicon:num_5_five See icon:mark3_sign04icon:mark3_sign03 Done perfectly icon:mark3_sign03 icon:face4_kao-a02 icon:body2_a_goodicon:h_kira01


icon:num_1_oneicon:num_6_six You can add in anything else that you wish as long as they do not clash with other objects.

I forgot my 3rd ghost. So, I'm going to add in my 3rd ghost to the right corner above. icon:o_dokuro icon:h_heart08


icon:body2_a_paper Remembericon:mark3_sign01 Do not bring back any items to inventory which you've placed out in order to get the perfect result icon:mark3_sign03 

And now we are done perfectly with the correct arrangement as you wished. icon:face3_kao07icon:h_kira02 icon:h_note
