My ancestry is Scottish and I'd like to see this theme also. Scotland is beautiful with extreme weather and landscape. I like the scenery in the movie The Winter Guest directed by the late Alan Rickman...it was filmed at Elie and Pittenweem in the East Neuk of Fife...I couldn't find pictures online as moving as those he shot. There's a wonderful scene of fog rolling into the cove at the end of the movie.

Not exactly a theme suggestion, but something that could work in many themes. Is there a way to make customized NPCs? Simple, with the same clothing, but different hair/skin/eye colors?

That could tip into cultural appropriation quickly though! I don't see how they could do such a thing and be respectful! I vote NO for this idea!


I think it would be a great theme. I don't really understand what is meant by "cultural appropriation." But there was so much diversity it seems to me it would be necessary to choose one area of the country before Europeans arrived and show the lifestyle of the people there. Otherwise the theme would be too watered down IMHO. If the theme was popular maybe we could do other regions from time to time. So, anyway, I vote YES.

Has there ever been a LOTR theme? I know it is well past when Jackson's movies came out but that doesn't put the books out of date. At least do The Hobbit. It could be so charming and cute. Could throw in the English countryside look and the 18th century rural dress. Lots of vegetable and flower garden. The house should be done just as was written though. Underground, no second floor--that means no stairs cases!, round doors and rounded ceiling, lots of wood and rural 18th century English decor and food.

And yeah, furry bare feet!

How about a dog show theme since everyone loves pets so much. Could come out with some limited time pets like back in 2010 with the Baby Jag, Beagle, and Dalmatian. Could come out with some good ones like for example, great dane, pitbull, boxer.. and the list goes on. Either way it would be nice to see a new exclusive pet line come out for the future.

Your story saddens me deeply. You are a brave young woman and I applaud your willingness to bring awareness to your disease. Thank you.

Thank you for the ribbons. I copied the Melanoma one because when it claims you it claims you fast.

I lost my brother to Melanoma because he spent months in pain with misdiagnosis. He went in for surgery on his back and found he had large tumors growing so fast they couldn't do treatment. He lived a month after diagnosis.

Within two weeks the very man that caught my brother when he collapsed checked into the hospital thinking he had a stroke.
That was my husband. We were suppose to go out to have steak dinners that night for his birthday but before that he went into the hospital.
Melanoma had spread all through his body with 3 massive tumors in his brain.
The pain was so great with nothing being given to him he finally screamed that he was gonna die and he did at that moment from a brain bleed.
Four days after being diagnosed with Cancer caused by the sun.

It doesn't take much sun. Have mole checks every year! It is just as important as any other major health screening if not more so.

I was born with a disease called Neurofibromatosis type 1. There's 2 types but the shorter form is NF1. Here's a small explanation of what NF is. (Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that causes tumors to form on nerve tissue. These tumors can develop anywhere in your nervous system, including your brain, spinal cord and nerves. Neurofibromatosis is usually diagnosed in childhood or early adulthood)

It has caused so many health problems for me and I'm only nineteen. I know that not many people know what NF is and I want to spread awareness about it and hope that one day we can actually get more research on it. I was also diagnosed with depression and anxiety at the age of eleven and I think it would be nice to see even something like wearable ribbons for diseases/disorders like different types of Cancer, Neurofibromatosis, PTSD, Autism, Depression, Anxiety, and Suicide Awareness.

I think it would be amazing to see something like this, it would not only help awareness but also bring people together.

So this is what some of the ribbons look like. I'm thinking we could have the names on each ribbon. Thoughts?

:hug: :heart: :hug:
Your story and suggestion brought me to tears. This is the absolute best suggestion ever. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
I would collect all the ribbons and wear them all the time. :rose:

Katherine,
Thank you for the links. I've read only the first one so far because of my interest in Native American history. I still don't see how a historical representation of pre-colonialism tribal life could be disrespectful...a deliberate effort would have to be made to belittle it. They don't have to include religious beliefs, symbols, clothing, practices, dances, hidden ceremonial sites, etc., even if it was part of the daily life. Just provide us the basic environment and food, clothing, shelter, tools, common musical instruments and pottery that weren't reserved for religious celebration. I think that as a theme it would be beautiful. A simple approach would avoid misrepresentation and unintentional insult I think. I wouldn't want anything referring to the conquering of one tribe over another either. Just this tribe(s) and how they survived off nature at such and such a place and such and such a time would be interesting enough.

:heart: :bye:

Theme Suggestion-Workshop

Postby jeff-ro (185835368) » Tue Apr 24, 2018 5:59 pm

I would love to see a workshop theme. A property with a workshop or garage on it, it could connect like an avenue to be an additional yard to any property but be able to be entered like a house to reveal a big room. The ability to buy animated & interactive power tools like a saw table, hammering project, etc. Maybe a car with the hood up to be interactively worked on.

I really like the new interactive workbench. This would be a great addition to expand that.

An NYC Harlem Theme offering surrounding Landmarks, a tri-level Brownstone with an animated/interactive elevator. Also, beautiful animated window scenes, furniture, clothing and lighting with dimmers. You could actually do a period theme of this historic NYC neighborhood. Titled "Harlem Renaissance" A cultural re-birth for Black Americans (but enjoyed by all cultures) in this particular neighborhood during the 1920's. You did 1920's Casino but it features an underworld of gangsters and thugs. I look forward to the next theme.

Okay, I've been thinking about the Theme suggestions and I have submitted my idea for an Outlander theme, so you already got my thoughts on that, but just now I had a brainstorm! :?: I noticed that currently the men have this voluptuous woman yober :kiss: that they can purchase and I am wondering why us women can't have a hunky looking man :smug: Yober. I mean, since we don't have the ability to be married on here, why can't we just have an attractive yober to walk around with? It would be something new and I think it would be kind of fun. There might be people out there who think this is a dumb idea, but I doubt it.

Thank you. :bye:

I think an updated Versailles theme would be absolutely magnificent. Powdered wigs, illustrious furnishings, and a promenade of pastels.
