Why are structures put down backwards?

The remastered version will be getting more styles added and the lower tiers are getting added to the remaster soon.
Some of the more "wacky" options like the Hellfire and the Ice etc won't make a return in the remastered version, however, something along those kind of "fantastical" styles will return in the future in a another ckfr mod ;)

Love this mod, we just got it and I gotta say the remastered is nice too but not giving the option for all the different stone types, ie hellfire, obsidian and what not makes it hard to use the new mod lol

I know it's a bit OCD but can I ask you to fix the keep curved walls, they just don't line up correctly and one walls always sits forward than the other making it the railings on the top of in not sit flush with each other

Why are the keep spiral staircases stacking incorrectly?

Hi folks - Loving this mod. Is there a wiki or guide?

Just discovered the water wheel - going to have some fun with that.

Currently having trouble getting irrigation to the keep fireplace pot though. The old fix was to make sure you placed piping first, but that's not doing the trick. Do I need to pop in an inline water storage tank or can i just pipe in direct from a lakeshore? Any other advise?

The ones used in the images are found in eco mods. Most of decor mods used in the inages are named in the top left corner. If not it's one of eco mods that has candles. :)
