This could have been a money spending and awesome theme. As far as the clothes go, your dresses are way too long. The prints are good, though. The shoes for both girl and guy, look nothing like what we wore. I hope you do the white go go boots. The motorcycles and NPC's are way too small, yet the interactive subway entrance is huge and where does it go in the theme?? This theme could have made the company a lot of money. I may buy a different house to do it, but I will wait and see what other items you release for the theme before I do that. I hope for better sizing in all released future items.

If there had been an underground subway area, I can almost guarantee more people would have bought the property. I know I would have. Maybe BVG will release a modular room for that. (hint hint :D )

The coin home should have 3 rooms at the very least. I feel that way about nearly all coin homes.

I wish the street was based more around Carnaby Street, which was the really popular and now famous hip fashion street in Swinging-Sixties era London.

Perhaps this theme would have been more interesting if it was Liverpool in the 60s, rather than London, as the home place of the Beatle’s and with the famous Cavern Club. Perhaps a bit more niche, but there’s more to the UK than London, which we’ve now had 3 times.

I'm quite sure Leeum suggested Liverpool but they took the liberty to make it London again. :)

This theme needs a Mary Quant NPC. She is the London fashion designer that popularized the mini skirt and hotpants. She made fashion fun, which it probably hadn't been since the 20's era flappers.


Since I don't wish to create a new thread, I would like to suggest an 80's hair band theme.

The cash home only has 2 more rooms so does not seem like a good deal. If I want to do this theme I will buy the coin home and just add a street avenue. I don't mind spending the cash but I think I will save the cash on this one.

So much for coin homes having three rooms, huh? All we're really paying 12K for is the exterior, then?

After all the lagging, freezing, gray-screens, restarts, etc. over the past few months...and now, this? I can't be the only one disappointed, even if I feel I'm the only one voicing it.

Is it too much to hope for some Emma Peel fashion nods? :rose:

Toured the house again and it’s so disappointing. Every theme turns out to be mediocre and safe when they should be bigger in scale. The London house from 2012 has a better street room that could be made to look more 60’s. Even the apartment from 2016 looks a lot more retro and post-war chic.

I hope the decor is good. I don’t want everything to be Union Jack central- I know that was popular at the time, but the Union Jack has became synonymous with so much ugliness and the worst of society in the UK that it’d be hard to swallow.

I’ve been working on a 60s-era council house (social housing in Britain) for a while but have struggled to find the furniture/decor I want for my specific vision- I hope this theme provides it.

I still wish you guys would show more to the UK than just London. The beautiful Scottish Highlands, or Edinburgh, are dying to be showcased. Would also really love a WWII- era Britain with bomb shelters and bomb damage and the like- inspired by the gorgeous 80s film ‘Hope and Glory’ set in a British suburb during the war.

I have been asking for Scotland for years and have given up.
I will do this theme but am not overly excited about it at all. The last two themes we.had were fabulous - among the best work I have seen in here. I don't expect that with this theme but the subway entrance is great.

I have 7 "rooms" or spaces or whatever you want to call them in my property. So am not sure what you are referring to. My coin version has an exterior and an interior. I count that ast 2 spaces.

I can't get the face case to open up when I go to the Salon. In fact, when I click on the Salon link, it just spins and does nothing & I have to hard X out of the game. No other option.

I won't buy any face case items unless I can try them on first. The female eyes seem way too large once again, but I can't even try them on.
:wailing:

I was finally able to access the Salon by going thru the link in my avi editor. The female eyes are a bit large but I do like them ok with the eyelash extensions. I hate the lips, which are 1/2 the size of ones my avi normally wears. Why are they so so tiny while the eyes are huge? I don't care for the blush, either. I did buy the sample pack of the face case. If the lips were larger (normal sized and shaped), I might have bought the entire face case.

I wasn't sure if the eyeliner goes under the eyeshadow but that's how I layered it. Thanks for metallic / white eyeshadow. Definite 60s.
