In a building, only owners or managers can place furniture, using the "Arrange furniture" button on the Shoppe panel. On an unlocked ship, anyone with fleet officer rights on that ship can place furniture, using the "Arrange furniture" button on the Vessel panel.
Pressing the "Arrange furniture" button brings up a new view of the room or part of the ship. In this view, furniture can be moved or removed. Tables must be clear of any tabletop items before being manipulated. When selecting a piece of furniture, the item's name and condition are shown.
Some items can be rotated using the mouse wheel or the arrow keys. A few items do not rotate at all, and many have only two or three positions instead of four. There is only one correct way to place an item on a wall depending on which way the wall faces.
When you are finished making changes, select "Commit changes" or "Discard changes" as appropriate. Once changes are committed, they are immediately visible to the people in the room.
When a pirate places a piece of furniture, it leaves the pirate's inventory. From that point, it is tracked on the pirate's info page under the Placed Furniture tab. The pirate continues to own the furniture even if ownership of the building or ship changes.
The new owner can remove furniture belonging to another pirate, but the furniture returns to the original pirate's inventory.
When buildings and ships are created, they have furniture already in them. However, this furniture is a special kind called "props." Props can be removed but not relocated. Once a prop is removed, it is destroyed. This system prevents pirates from creating buildings or ships for the purpose of looting their furniture.
Some items are neither regular furniture nor props. These items can not be removed or relocated because they serve a function. Examples include duty stations aboard ships and the shoppe table for ordering products. An item with a trivial function may be exempt—the drinking table found on a war brig is a removable prop.
Unlike other items that decay, furniture does not degrade over time. Instead, furniture decays a little each time it is moved. Eventually, it is reduced to a prop and can not be moved again without destroying it.
