Also, I am obligated to mention how much I've been begging for a Seattle Space Needle house forever. View of downtown Seattle and the waterfront from the top. Your own secret Penthouse in it. Ride the elevator down to a fun festival like a Brewfest on the grounds below. Offer YoFudge, premium freshly made fudge much like Seattle Fudge. Have a glass blowing shop or a Chihuly Gallery. The International Fountain. Carnival rides. So much more.

How about a Futuristic Dark Fantasy setting that uses historical art styles. Specifically, Minoan! (So make that griffon seen in a mural below real! And give us flowers like in the mural too!)

Art

While Minoan figures, whether human or animal, have a great sense of life and movement, they are often not very accurate, and the species is sometimes impossible to identify; by comparison with Ancient Egyptian art they are often more vivid, but less naturalistic.[14] However. it has been argued that the hybrid forms of flowering plants in frescos "reinforces the unearthly, magical, quality of the composition", as does the depiction together of flowers that actually appear at very different seasons.[15] In comparison with the art of other ancient cultures there is a high proportion of female figures,[16] though the idea that Minoans had only goddesses and no gods is now discounted. Most human figures are in profile or in a version of the Egyptian convention with the head and legs in profile, and the torso seen frontally; but the Minoan figures exaggerate features such as slim male waists and large female breasts.[17]


As seen in Minoan art, Minoan men wore loincloths (if poor) or robes or kilts that were often long. Women wore long dresses with short sleeves and layered, flounced skirts.[77] With both sexes, there was a great emphasis in art in a small wasp waist, often taken to improbable extremes. Both sexes are often shown with rather thick belts or girdles at the waist. Women could also wear a strapless, fitted bodice, and clothing patterns had symmetrical, geometric designs. Men are shown as clean-shaven, and male hair was short, in styles that would be common today, except for some long thin tresses at the back, perhaps for young elite males. Female hair is typically shown with long tresses falling at the back


Image

Since it's an homage to the culture the fashion would not have to include bare female chests like this mural. (But keep the dress lines and colors?)

Columns
For sustaining of the roof, some higher houses, especially the palaces, used columns made usually of Cupressus sempervirens, and sometimes of stone. One of the most notable Minoan contributions to architecture is their inverted column, wider at the top than the base (unlike most Greek columns, which are wider at the bottom to give an impression of height). The columns were made of wood (not stone) and were generally painted red. Mounted on a simple stone base, they were topped with a pillow-like, round capital.[118][119]


They made the columns from cypress trees and inverted them to prevent them from regrowing.

I have always wanted an Iridescent Bubble Salon/House fantasy theme with round rooms, Wild asymmetrical hair, cool eyes, lips, makeup with clothes and accessories to match. Everyone loves unique hair so I think it could be a great suggestion.

Not a theme suggestion, but I would like five new avenues.

1. A blank (no buildings nor other things to cover) FULL SCREEN avenue for fall
2. A blank (no buildings nor other things to cover)FULL SCREEN avenue for winter (snow on the ground)
3. A blank (no buildings nor other things to cover) FULL SCREEN avenue for spring.
4. A blank (no buildings nor other things to cover) FULL SCREEN avenue for summer.
5. A COMPLETELY blank evening FULL SCREEN avenue that could be used as an indoor setting or an out door setting.

Thank you for considering.

Great additions!!! These would be wonderful for decorators. I would have loved a FS for the Costa Rica theme - there were so many good items for out of doors. I just bought a couple of avenues to expand - so I am good now - but it would have been nice to have a blank full screen. :)

A Scottish theme would be nice. Pipes and kilts along with swords, Claymores and basket hilts. Castles and thistles.

Sasquatch/Bigfoot Theme

Image

Which would segue nicely into:

Space Needle/Seattle Theme

Vintage Seattle
Capitalize on the MCM style of some of the houses.
Expo with Elvis. 1962

OR

80's - 90's Seattle when it was fun and before downtown became trashed.

Image


Also Gremlins

Image

End of Halloween mini theme and then segue into Christmas with them in a mini theme. Then they can disappear for awhile (but once they invade, they'll always be around YoW).

I would love to see a Nascar theme....I have the Monte Carlo home but its for Indy cars. Also would like to see a Detective agency theme, and an underground bunker theme, or world war preparation. If you do another Castle theme for Halloween, please include hidden tunnels and doorways, like secret passageways.

I would LOVE to have more decorating items, like knickknacks (books, vase, pictures, desk items, vanity items, kitchen counter things, unusual statues, ect.) and more furniture that is NOT cash sale. I have been playing since 2009 and miss the old themes where there was more to fill a room.

Also it would be super fun to re release more old themes especially when yoworld is releasing a theme that had been done before with yoville. Like every month re release an old theme that goes with one of the 'new' themes also being released. With emerald city now I'd love to see the old theme back in store as well!!

New themes i'd love to see:
Highlands or Scottish Heritage
Doomsday Preppers
Hunting Cabin
Trailer Park
Sitcoms
Detective/Police/Firestation/Hospital

And more rooms that are not just squared off. Built in alcoves and balconies and roof slants make me 1000x more excited to decorate than a plain room with one door. And for outside rooms seeing tree shadows that layer is AMAZING!!

In addition to my "PRIDE Theme Proposal 2021" thread, what about this:

* An Avenue where we can choose our backdrops.
* A parade float base - one that can be used for ALL KINDS of parades - Fourth of July, Mardi Gras, Thanksgiving, etc.
* Basic decorations - the fringe skirt, balloons, etc. - in ALL colors!!!
* Special decorations like colored flowers, fireworks, etc.
