Tips and tricks for better loft construction

Removing the wall makes the roof disappear

Roofs can sometimes mess up builds in many ways. In Loft houses, the roofs can intervene in two different ways; disappear completely or jump through walls.

When players build a Loft, the common mistake is removing loft walls using the wall tool before putting up the fence. Unfortunately, this will cause the roof to disappear. The easy solution would be to choose a fence then immediately change the wall without using any tools.

the roofs breaking through the walls and ruining the construction

The second problem occurs when players build a house with a sloping (A-shaped) roof. When making the loft, builders will notice that once the fence is added, the roof will go through the wall and be visible inside the room.

Build additional rooms

A simple solution is to reduce the slope of the roof. This can be done by clicking on the roof and moving the little arrows around its edge. This won’t completely fix the problem, but the edges of the roof will be less obvious. The last step is to choose the room tool and create additional rooms between the loft and the roof so that all the edges disappear.

lights on both floors create an awkward view

The final tip is how to place lights inside a Loft. Players should keep in mind that once they remove floors, placing lamps on the first and second floors will become an inconvenient sight. The first floor lights will appear to “float” as there is no ceiling to hold them up. To avoid this, builders should place them only on the second floor.
