There are quite a few bookcases and shelves available that already have books. To add to bookcases/shelves use items that attach to the wall and position them on the shelves at the right height. Also check out other people's designs to learn how they made their bookcases look good.

Is there a way to make books go in a bookshelf rather than on top of it?

There are a couple of catalogue items that are wall-attached books.  You can adjust their elevation and line them up with shelves.  Use the search terms

"deadgood" and "conceal".

@Starsector: What did you win when you won the competition?

P.S. Deserved winner!

starsector - 3 months ago

Hi Shoe, Thank you so much!  I won 16 credits to use on other renders ;)

cool

Hello?

starsector - 3 months ago

I believe the prizes go like this:

1st: 16

2nd:14

3rd: 12

4th: 10

5th: 3 (or 6?)

6th: 3

7th: 3

8th: 3

9th: 3

10th: 3


But these are based on vote count, not the actual position on the contest page.  For instance, 3 designs could get 4th place if they have the same number of votes, and Roomstyler generously awards 10 credits to all three of them :)

nice 

who creates compoticions?

I mean compotecions

Sorry, i mean competitions

who creates  competitions?

starsector - 3 months ago

The Roomstyler staff creates them, but they often use our suggestions.  There's a couple threads with contest suggestions they've picked from.

ok

nice, thank you!

starsector - 3 months ago

On the rare occasion there were 'ties' for 1st place, Roomstyler chose the one with the most Hearts/Likes at the time the contest ended to be the top banner design.

ok

why is my room like this?



starsector - 3 months ago

I think it's because your camera is in the wall.  Even though it looks fine in the camera view/preview, the walls actually 'thicken' during the render, which buried the camera image.  Just move your camera forward a bit (or move your south wall back a bit), and that should fix it ;)

The camera is not in the room.

i tried that, it is in it

you can remix it and see

starsector - 3 months ago

That's correct.  Too much of it extends into and beyond the wall.

starsector 3 months ago

no

really?

hmm...

wait there pls

starsector - 3 months ago

Yes, the walls actually thicken during the render.  So even though it seems fine in the camera view/preview, during the photo render the wall thickens and buries the image.  Just move it forward a bit, or move your wall back a bit.

starsector 3 months ago

wait

starsector - 3 months ago
No problem, I'll wait :) But here's a tip: The 'wide angle' shots are not very popular on the site. I'd recommend that you click on the camera, then on the left panel change it to 'normal' or 'zoom' view, then move your camera (or wall if you need to) back enough to capture a more interesting photo. I love your patterns, btw. I really love lots of mixed patterns and textures.

thanks

Why is it so dark?



Star?

hi?

starsector - 3 months ago

Hi Shoe, you've got your light setting all the way turned down.

starsector 3 months ago

i...

cannot take another photo

starsector - 3 months ago

Click on the lightbulb in the left panel, then move the slider (under the Day/Night Buttons) into the center or way more to the right :)

If you can't take another photo, just move any object on your floor plan a tiny bit, that will reactivate the photo save button under the Camera View image.

cannot take another photo

wait...



done


finished

actually...

It would be great to exchange emails, right?


starsector - 3 months ago

Much better!  Still a little too dark, though.  Add some pretty lamps at the sofa ends, and maybe an overhead light, too :)

It would be great to exchange emails, right?

to each other

instead of using forums

Hello?

starsector - 3 months ago

They used to have a messaging system on the site, years ago when it was called "myDeco" but they discontinued it.  I think they were trying for a 'facebook/myspace' type of platform.  But it didn't get used much (and unfortunately, some people were harassed through it).  We manage to accomplish quite a bit on the forum, though.

You're using the wrong light slider. Use the light bulb one and go "Save as". Then Remix and go "Take a 3D photo" and put that light slider back to normal.

so can we

exchange emails?

@theadora: ?

got to go, bye!

starsector - 3 months ago

Hi Shoe, I'm sorry but it would not be appropriate to exchange emails.  As a young person, you should never give out your email address without your parents/guardian permission as a way to help keep you safe :)

starsector 3 months ago

my parents allow me

Theadora - 3 months ago

I don't believe you! Share your e-mail address with family and friends only!


Since you don't seem to understand the importance of Starsector's excellent explanation/warning I don't mind being the boogeyman here and telling you straight up:


If you post your e-mail address for anyone to see anywhere on the Internet you are endangering yourself because there are weird people in this world who might come after you.


If I see that you have posted your e-mail address anywhere on Roomstyler I will report you to Roomstyler and they will kick you off this site.

GOT IT?!

Theodora is totally right, Shoe, and I will report it, too.  Do not put yourself and the other school kids on the site at risk by posting or exchanging email addresses.
