tarquinwj clip also affects layering

 As described in the Therion Book, __How the map is put together__, the layers are '​default-bottom',​ '​default'​ and '​default-top'​. ​ '​Default',​ as you might guess is in the middle. Areas go to the bottom, ceiling-step and chimney go to the top, everything else is somewhere in the middle. As described in the Therion Book, __How the map is put together__, the layers are '​default-bottom',​ '​default'​ and '​default-top'​. ​ '​Default',​ as you might guess is in the middle.

-Now if you find that you have not drawn an entity in exactly the right order to get that special effect you were after, there is an over-ride. ​ There are two more '​layers',​ '​top',​ and '​bottom'​ and these are placed by Therion above '​default-top'​ and below '​default-bottom'​ respectively. ​ To put an entity in either of these layers, add the option -place top or -place bottom. ​ If using -place for an area it is probably a good idea to use -place for its defining border as well.+Now if you find that you have not drawn an entity in exactly the right order to get that special effect you were after, there is an over-ride. ​ There are two more '​layers',​ '​top',​ and '​bottom'​ and these are placed by Therion above '​default-top'​ and below '​default-bottom'​ respectively. ​ To put an entity in either of these layers, add the option -place top or -place bottom. ​ If using -place for an area it is probably a good idea to use -place for its defining border as well. There is then an upper layer on top of '​top',​ which is the layer containing any items that have '-clip off', since these are rendered after all items that take part in normal clipping. If you have an entity without '-clip off' that needs to be rendered on top of an entity that has '-clip off' (eg. a ceiling step that must appear on top of a boulder when the boulder-edge has '-clip off'), then you will need to give the first entity (the ceiling step in the example) '-clip off' as well. These non-clipped entities are then layered with respect to each other respecting the usual -place and stacking orders.
