    Is anyone else having like a weird one click = double click thing going on? It's kinda annoying how i go to set something down and it picks it back up again, is this intended?

    I noticed this as well. Just click (it will do the double click thing) then hit escape.... that put the statuette at its last set point, which was where ya just clicked (double clicked!).

    I think it's something related to how they changed moving objects around (I was gone from the game while they did it so I'm not sure). I first noticed it in Splitpaw where it was really annoying for those breaking crates.

    The fix I made was when I wanted to place something I clicked and dragged my mouse off the object and then released. I think the problem is that they made OnMouseRelease or whatever pick up the object again, I assume by accident.

    my 1st time in there after the patch i had this also. it is the new furniture moving thing... it is working as intended. the way i found to fix it is click and drag when you wana set something down, it wont pick it back up

    That's alright, in FTH the other day our wall-blower-upper blew himself up trying to move a barrel, note that he was no where near the wall, as soon as he tried to sit it down the first time it went BOOM.

    Don't put them ON the pedistal. Put them NEAR the GROUND next to a pediastal. Works the same way as putting them on and its less time consuming.

    The slightly changed item/furniture placement was actually feedbacked on test, and they reverted back to the old system. Then somehow it went live again during the GU 36 testing, and feedbacked again, but this time it went in to live servers as well.

    The best way to avoid picking something up that you put down is to click and hold the mouse down and drag away your cursor from the item. In the meantime, probably feedback it again, sigh.

    just use F to pick it up, that way the mouse isn't involved till you set it down. However, don't do this with the barrel in FTH, as it will ignite on use. So right click it and move.
