Speculate wildly :?: . I speculate a Brazilian festival the one where the people wear skimpy clothing and dance wildly. Utah Brazilian festival is on September 9th.

Its great you guys are interacting with the players in the game, sometimes the only way to understand something is to experience it for yourself.

I have to say I felt this was really informative Podcast. I think all I would like to say (for now) I will just say here instead of all over the place.

As far as criticism is concerned, regarding our dislike of something, I don't think anyone's intention is to be mean by saying they don't like something, I think sometimes we can come over like that out of frustration, especially recently regarding the 40's theme. I personally would love some feedback on that, even more so as most of us would like to see it completed at some point (probably me more than most as I despise Halloween :haha: ) I need to be kept occupied at that time of the year :D

I have also, together with a few others I think, like some information regarding the "In Use" section of our Inventory. It would be extremely useful to be able to move items back more than one at a time. So, feedback on this would be great too

Pricing and layering are also big issues. I realise there is a post relating to layering, but pricing, I think needs to be more consistent and looked at again. Also, matching wall and floor panels in the Depot would be great to enable us to match wallpapers and floors when decorating the black space areas

Now for an oldie from I think most players. How about building materials in the depot? Roof slates, beams etc to enable us to do our self builds and also extend onto our existing homes. I, myself mentioned this long ago and it was read out by Jacob I believe, on one of the old podcasts and he thought it was a good idea and was going to look into it.. Here we are over 2 years later still waiting. Updates and feedback on this would be gratefully received.

Exterior Doors and Windows Wouldn't it be good to have an exterior window which wasn't just blue? Simple things like a view into a room. It wouldn't have to be predominantly obvious, but a hint of an interior, much like the old romantic house from years gone by. The window fitted into the house gives the impression of looking inside. Nice patio doors/conservatories would be great too, especially with us now having the teleport arrows

Well that's all I can think of for the moment and hopefully, sometime soon, some of these things can be implemented into the game.

Thank you for taking the time to read. Feedback would be appreciated :)

Yes, I thought that too. I was going to mention it in my post and then didn't. So you're not the only one to think that
