Tired of Recycled Themes

Postby Kay (120975734) » Thu May 17, 2018 7:02 pm

I noticed in the survey there were several themes we've already had at least once. There are so many more original ideas out there. I would love to see a luxury fashion theme with furniture to build a built-in closet and items inspired by iconic high fashion pieces.

I agree! So many themes that seem similar. I would love a plain theme focus on ordinary stuff of modern time. The fashion one would really amp up pageants!

If it has not been said before welcome to the forums!

They probably base theme decisions on whatever they think will have the widest appeal.

I have no idea what the demographics of the players are - would the majority be interested in high fashion?

i think the themes with the most votes win cause bvg knows more people will take part in, as in spending, the themes with the most votes.

i don't think the ski home, murder mystery, santa parade, family christmas have been done before. as far as recycled themes go, it's usually we the players who vote for them.

some themes have been done by z but not by bvg so that's not really recyled.

We've already had a fashion theme... that's not original either.

I noticed the same thing in the survey. So tired of recycled themes. Even a theme that wasn't done by BVG but by Zynga, is recycled to me.

There are no more original themes. But it is fun to pretend! LOL

You kinda just asked for a recycled theme when you’re complaining about recycled themes :eh:

Ahh there's nothing new under the sun. I'm pretty sure BVG listens to every bee bop do wop in this forum and provides the distilled data for the theme surveys. If someone suggests something and it goes viral, it's gonna happen. If someone suggests something and you only hear crickets, not gonna happen.

One way to suggest a theme and have it well received is to provide detailed descriptions and imagery. Suggest a time and place for the setting.

Anyhoo, back to topic, high fashion would be great, but it changes by the minute, and has different audiences, so it would have to be quick and current to work.

Good luck!
:thumbsup:

But yet these same people who scream stop with the recycled themes would jump for joy for another Steampunk, Alice in Wonderland Haunted Manson theme :sleeping: :dizzy:

Its better to go with the flow. Ive thriwn the towel in this issue as well. If I dont like a theme then I wont partcipate in it. Like the so called (Bavarian) theme coming up.

I personally do not mind the similar themes. For one the items BVG puts out have been superior to Zynga in my opinion and second, I missed a lot of themes any way. New players will also be glad to get items similar to the ones they missed.

Agreed. Also, Legends had way more furniture than this current theme...so IMO they compliment each other rather than compete.

I think it's great that folk bring their ideas to the table, however, the ideas do need to be able to fit into the Yo theme framework.

I can't see how building a built-in wardrobe would work - how can you make that concept into a 'home?'

I can imagine the 'items inspired by iconic high fashion pieces' being fun for the developers though.

Well either that, or a right flipping headache - definitely one of the two :D :haha:
