How to Rotate Items in Necesse

One of the biggest questions I see constantly asked about Necesse is how you can rotate items like furniture in Necesse. Since there isn’t too much other information online about Necesse I’ll do the world a favor and write it here to create the shorted post I’ve written.

Picking Up Furniture and Changing the Rotation

Have you accidentally placed down an object in the wrong position? Perhaps you have placed a bed facing the wrong direction towards a wall. Whilst you cannot change the rotation of an item once it has already been placed down, luckily you can pick it back up and place it again without destroying the item.

These items won’t be destroyed by tools

To do this, equip one of your tools such as a shovel or axe. Smack the piece of furniture with this tool until it breaks loose. You are then able to pick the item up again and add it to your inventory. Now, you can place down the item in the correct location/rotation.
