Thats why I would like the choice. I know some dont like them, but I dont want to go back to the old ones either.


Same for me. I think the old ones are an eye sore and prefer the new ones, but we should definitely have a choice. I also think in some rooms with really light floors, the old ones work better. I know where I have the new ones placed, but like you said, people have to work to find their way around and probably don't even see them on some floors so they don't tour. I'd love to be able to use both depending on my flooring.

I dont mind them as is but i have to admit for OCD reasons i like them to match with normal stagnant arrows so that it looks like a seamless match rather than obvious which are part of the floor plan & which was added. But i'll be okay either way...

So much this! As a fellow OCD sufferer, I can relate to this and it bugs me sometimes. I can live with it but I really notice it and am bugged by it in certain rooms. I wish I could be as OCD about my real place as I am with my yo houses :haha:

I'm definitely in the camp of those that want them to be seen. I've added them to some rooms just because those room arrows have been lost under the floor tiles.

Same here. I hope they fix this soon. I want all the arrows I purchased over the years to be visible. I put in a ticket & hope they are working on it. They should just put all the arrows back to the way they were originally (when we purchased them) & work on a more invisible optional arrow later.

I’ve actually stopped buying some modular rooms/ avenues because of the invisible arrows.

If people want to hide the arrows they can do so while waiting for a more invisible option. Meanwhile, those who want to see the arrows have no real options for having them seen.

It’s unacceptable & they are losing sales.

So true and the BIGGEST ISSUES is the layering! I really don't understand after all the complaints over the years about the layering how they can't get it right!

Please change the ones that were purchased before the alteration back to solid, this is only fair as we didn't buy them like that, then give us a choice of transparent or solid. Really hoping for an answer on this, David promised he would look into it before he left.

Hey TUSCANY and everyone else who's commented,

The Teleport Arrow issue is something that was recently brought to my attention, and I'd like to offer my sincere apologies for not being aware of it before then. In the CM transition, the feedback on these arrows seems to have been accidentally overlooked.

With that said, I'm happy to let you know that I have re-opened the topic with the Viking team, and we're seeing what can be done to help you all out! Stay tuned! :)

I understand everyone's frustration with the arrows, but I like the purchased ones to be different looking so I know I am using a teleport because every single time I use a teleport my game disconnects--- so I like having the warning that it is a teleport and not a regular door! Maybe they can make the teleport arrows in different colors or something so they show up but so people still know it is a teleport so they can choose not to be disconnected.

That disconnect happens if you use the arrows, visit any public spot, or any event if you've been in game for about 20 minutes. It's an old bug that has never been addressed. If you've been in game for less time, they'll work properly...

SLEEPY KoY, I found that happening to me (being disconnected and forced to refresh) when I have been in game for a while (like over 20 minutes). If you refresh regularly on your own you should be able to use them without being forced to refresh.


Looks like Erwyle and I were writing at the same time. :D

How about keeping the old ones as they were when we bought them, and releasing new ones that will be trasparent like they are now? That is what they should have done. Everybody would have been happy.

But the most important thing is that this should not have happened in the first place. There should have been somebody in the bloody team who should have said – "Hey David, but what about the others who like those arrows as they are? Won't they be mad if we change the tens to hundreds of arrows they already bought to the point they will be basically invisible in half of their rooms?" (David was the one who brought this up to the team and who we can thank for this "fix").

They should make those already purchased arrows look as they did before this "fix" and release new transparent ones.

I totally agree with this! I spent quite a bit of YC on the original arrows because they worked for making my tours. Now all those homes and rooms are worthless. No one can find the arrow to proceed to the next room. THIS is the reason I've stopped decorating. And that means, no playing for the most part for me. No playing means I don't spend money on the game anymore, so BVG has lost a good bit of revenue.
I feel very betrayed by BVG for doing this to those of us who bought those arrows in good faith. :grr
