Same here! I tried in different houses, either inside or outsite where there is plenty of space and nothing surrounding it and it is always red, I cannot place it. That's a real problem. Could you please fix that?
Even when it is the absolute only thing in the area (and I chose a large area) it can't be placed. Pity. It looks like a very nice item, but I don't need it taking up space in my bank, attic, or backpack, thanks.
I saw a hint to try moving it around a bit and then placing it. In order to be able to try moving it around, it has to be able to be placed in the first place. It's useless like it is. Disappointing that it is taking so long to fix.
I also can't place mine, and I have tried all kinds of creative stuff like putting it by water, in a cave on the road, everything but actually putting it in the desert only because I don't have a house with desert on this account. I have even tried indoors after first putting down brick flooring, and although I thought it would be a bad idea, I tried on a wood floor in the treehouse... next to water features, next to a water feature near a furnace, in my Arcanum apt in the middle of the empty first floor where it would seem to fit nicely in the circle pattern there on the floor. I guess that makes me a dummy, since Sparck says it is fixed. I wonder if Sparck will mention how we can rotate an item in our backpack so that we can place it by rotating it?
