Solid colored items are already in game - they're just neutral colors like black, white, brown, and all shades of tan. There are solid couches and chairs in the "University", "80's", and "Road Trip" themes and they're not boring.

It's all in the execution. It could be great, if it were done right. :D

No need to be sorry. It's just, people think "Pride" and think "dancing shirtless guy" only. That's why I didn't include any of that in my initial post. I wanted people to think "COLOR" and such!

Then why did you PM me & ask me to remove shirtless dancing guy? I did. You should’ve removed your above post, if you want to keep it hush hush. Your original post is asking for freaking furniture items colored in basics. Guess I don’t get it, but would like a Pride Parade Avenue, with some floats & npc’s.

Well now that's just silly... that pic was in no way offensive and Pride isn't Pride without beautiful men dancing shirtless like that... it just isn't. Show me one Pride festival where you don't see that... except in Siberia.

Heck even one of the St. Patrick's themes has one. :haha: :haha: :haha:

I told you in the PM why I asked you to remove it. We both know what happens when these threads become religious or political. They get locked. I've posted several threads about "Pride" and they all turn into these ranting/raving back-and-forths. I wanted this thread to be about the proposal I put forth, not about shirtless men.

Chase (109598274) wrote:Your original post is asking for freaking furniture items colored in basics.


Yes, it is...and, as you can see, even THIS harmless post about solid-color furniture/walls has been ignored by the Vikings. Imagine if I'd asked for a RuPaul NPC with a full Pit Crew in multi-colored Speedos! (Not a bad idea, now that I think about it!)

Chase (109598274) wrote:Guess I don’t get it, but would like a Pride Parade Avenue, with some floats & npc’s.


My approach was to start small, with a harmless request for basic items which would represent everyone. I mean, WHO could get angry about wanting a solid colored RED wall or a solid RED couch? The Vikings could release these solid colored items without making anyone mad - AND - they could acknowledge their diverse fanbase at the same time.

I was attempting to suggest something which wouldn't trigger the religious or political set. That's all. I wasn't trying to censor anyone. I DO apologize if my request to you came across that way. It wasn't meant to.

Sam Holmes (139381965) wrote: ...that pic was in no way offensive...


No, it wasn't. I wasn't "offended". I just didn't want the thread to be locked because someone else did get offended by it.

Sam Holmes (139381965) wrote:...and Pride isn't Pride without beautiful men dancing shirtless like that... it just isn't. Show me one Pride festival where you don't see that.


Yes, but Pride is more than "beautiful men dancing shirtless" and my proposal was about more than that, as well. It was about getting a foot in the proverbial door and getting the Vikings to acknowledge their more diverse fanbase.

I've already started drafting my next proposal for 2020 and I'm using the St. Patrick's Day guy! (Thanks for him, by the way!!)

:thumbsup:

You SO get what I was trying to propose!! The added benefit would be, it acknowledged a portion of the YoWorld fanbase that often gets ignored (not so much in the last few years). Thank you for this comment!!!\ :heart:

We already have solid colored items...in brown, black, white, tan, beige, and gray. Why not...red, blue, green (like in the "Roadside" theme!), purple, orange, and yellow?

Dex, I just want to say I am so sorry that you feel like you have to be careful about how you ask for a Pride Theme. :sad:
I completely understand why you feel that way, since I have seen past threads and how they went down hill when they really didn't need to. I do hope that someday you get your wish and get a Pride theme in June. I am not really one of those girls that are into wearing rainbows, but I promise that if we ever get a Pride theme, I will put on my rainbow tutu just to show my support for you and all others who have the right to love who they want to love. :heart:

That's why I suggested solid colored items. They don't have to be combined into a "rainbow," to be useful decorating items. We already have solid-colored items but they're the same teal, peach, gray, brown, etc. colors. Why not add some real COLOR up in here?! The world is a rainbow, why wouldn't YoWorld be, too?!

That, and we're seeing all kinds of religious stuff creeping into the game... :heart:

As part of the community, I would love a pride theme! :love: :party: :rose:

I'm v. grateful for all the rainbow and pride items currently in-game but a whole theme would be pretty cool, too! I hope it happens.

I don't honestly know if I'd purchase these decor items as is, BUT I'm happy to support a theme like this being created. I just think they need to do it right and design some good stuff for it so we all want to buy and re-use different items within the theme.

It would have fit perfectly into a San Francisco theme as pride is such an integral part of that city's culture, but I know one of those has already been created. Either way, there has to be a smart way to incorporate this and do it right.

I wish you luck. :hug:

I’m all for the theme since it’s different and obviously some people would love it.

I’d purchase the decor, maybe some furniture. I play the game with neutrals and muted colors because that’s what I love IRL, too. I would never have a red kitchen IRL, so I wouldn’t in game either.

Common decor palettes are as limited as they are because that’s what the majority like. There are volumes upon volumes of color psychology, how people’s emotions are affected by different colors, etc. I submit 4-6 page reports every time I design a logo and style guide for someone, explaining why we chose exactly the colors we chose.

As many have posted, I’m hoping that at the very least walls will be on a color wheel so we can pick any sold color we want. I’ve been anxiously awaiting solid pale yellow walls since my first day here.

I would be very excited to have furniture and such in solid colors. As long as the designers really put some effort into the items. Having solids available is good for mixing and matching. This thread made me think of the groovy theme where there were great brightly colored items and I loved the vibrancy of it all.

So with that I say bring on the solid colors!

Guys I am still struggling with this one. How does BVG translate pride into a theme without being ruthlessly stereotypical? What does a pride house look like? A pride couch? A pride street? A pride bar? I can google up stuff just like anyone, and these things are a real obstacle to making a theme like this a reality in Yo. What I've learned over the years is that pride looks a lot like everyone else. It is rarely a parade float covered in rainbows with guys in leather dancing on it. It is simply 2 people who love each other living a good life - no matter what their genders. That's every theme in Yo.

I guess if BVG just does a regular theme but labels it as a Pride theme to honor the movement in June, is that going to be what satisfies this proposal? Because I don't know how BVG can make a "pride lamp" that isn't the same as every other lamp - without resorting to stereotypes.
