Is anyone have problems in houses of items turning sideways when you place items?

    Thanks @ZOS_SarahHecker for the confirmation. Since it's been a while do you have updates or any idea of when this bug will be patched?

    Now I don't know about everyone else I know this just started happening to me and some of the guildies I build homes with on X1-NA when the last DLC patch dropped and is continuing to be a bug. Hopefully this is something that can be patched when the New Life Festival begins.

    This should be fixed on console in the next incremental patch on Wednesday.

    Any word on when this will be fixed on the PC, though? Still happening on my end.

    This should have been fixed with last week's patch. Could you happen to grab a video of it happening? We'd like to look into it further.

    It still happens to me when I first place an item, but if you rotate the second place holds the position.

    MAX CP, played since beta, yes I know the game. Also worked in software dev/ops so yes, I know what I'm talking about.

    If you read this and rolled your eyes, maybe you need to stop assuming women don't know ***.

    As I mentioned in my previous post, this issue was fixed for me, at least for assistants, mounts, & pets (the only items I had any problems with). I placed them this weekend on PC NA with no problems. They were oriented exactly as I had placed them. This is on PC NA, in Game Pad mode.

    Are you having issues with any item, or just assistants? For me, the issue only occurred in gamepad mode, and thus affected me on XB as well as PC (where I use gamepad mode exclusively), and only with assistants, mounts, and pets. PC now seems to be fine for me, and I'm looking forward to it being fixed on console this week.

    But maybe there's another bug out there that's not specifically related to assistants/mounts/pets?

    It's not quite fixed but way better.
    They still turn sideways buy if you move your own position and try again it seems to work. Also, only happening 50% of the time now.

    Ah...so I guess I'm lucky that both assistants I placed this weekend were oriented exactly as expected. Ah well...I just won't move them any time soon. I'll see how it works on XB when the patch hits on Wednesday.

    Hm yes, actually, I've had this too, which is why I advise to rule out that the problem doesn't originate from a "slippery controller".

    Much like the problem you can have with a "slippery mouse" on PC, sometimes the joysticks of a controller start to malfunction due to intensive use.

    Which then shows as either your camera view always going up or your character always slightly moving forward.
    Both of which are incredibly annoying as this means I can't loot and/or correctly place my housing items.

    I'm down to my 4th controller because of this in 2 years time 😅

    Just chiming in that I haven't had any problems since the console patch, and since the patch on PC for that matter. There have been a couple times where I had to pick up and place the assistant again, but it would orient the correct way on a second try. Most of the time, though, they place exactly as I intended on the first try. Also, when they don't place perfectly, it's usually that they're facing forward, toward me. Before, they'd sometimes turn 90 degrees or even 180 degrees from the direction I wanted them placed.
