OK, I know we've had lots of these before - but they keep slippping down the boards and vanishing, and as there's the themed lists around at the moment, I thought this might be a good opportunity to make a list for those things that don't fit specifically under any particular theme.

I know that our lists and requests do get looked at (and have also heard rumours that certain of our often-wished-for items have actually made their way through to the art department) and want to say Thanks for taking note of our suggestions, even if it's not practical or feasible to produce all of them.

Having said that - here's a few things that I'd love to see and would have made my life soooo much easier in recent projects ...!

  • More realistic mannequins.  The current ones are non-race-specific (other than the special Froglok ones), but even then, they couldn't possibly represent a lot of the races in Norrath.  It's virtually impossible to dress them up to even semi-realistically represent a proper person unless they're in full armour with arms, legs, hands, head fully covered.  This doesn't matter for use simply as clothing display, but DOES matter whan trying to use them to stand in for a statue or other semi-naturalistic looking figure.  The best that can be done, if you want a humanoid figure with customisable clothing, is to use one of the NotD Antonia or Lucan masks and ... that doesn't really work all that well. I'd love to see a shop-dummy sort of mannequin, one male, one female, basic model, non-race specific hair (eg like the male elf plushie - sorry, can't remember the name of it) - only with fully customisable clothing like the current mannequin system.
  • Curved or arched building blocks! As in - to be able to build arches with, or on their sides, they could be used to create a curved wall.  Of course no curve is ever going to be perfect for every design, but if we had, say, a 45-degree segment of a ring (an eighth of a ring) then I can think of sooo many uses for that (or, even better, that and a more gentle curve as well).
  • Pointed arches to be used around windows or to combine with pillars to make proper arches (that one's a bit more specialised!)
  • While we're on curves .... and this is probably a no-no because of the sheer number of tiles out there now - properly round tiles would be lovely.  Not with angles like the current carpenter and faire rounded tiles, but smoothly round so that they combine properly with cylindrical objects and platforms.
  • I'd also love for there to someday be SOME sort of hollow dome item for use in constructing buildings etc.  I don't think there's anything of this sort ingame, or if there is, I couldn't find it!

"arches"

Yes! And vaults.

- coffee pots and tea pots

- hand cranks for homemade wells, roasting spits, tinkered mechanisms, etc.

Flowers that open and close depending on the time, with animation to change between states. So have some that are open during the day, and others open at night.

Natural-looking stone building blocks. Same/similar look to the Grobb Crude and Rouch Stone Bench, but in block, half-block, divider, etc, shapes.

Highly doubt this will go anywhere but.... A new secondary tradeskill profession - Gardening - to make all the plant house items. (Because seriously, why am I crafting shrubs at a woodworking table?) And then make more plants craftable. Maybe add a gardening recipe book to Moonlight Enchantments; because making root beer again and again is getting just a little bit old.

I will no longer request any more house items publically, but since I do expect prestige homes to be SC, here's my request for one:

- The Library of K'Lorn in Neriak. The full library, not a truncated version. Opening up the blue wall set inside the rock wall behind where Library Mervyn normally stands would be a bonus because then it would be a nice fireplace area. Please and thank you!

A tradeskill version of the Crook Cook quest, for crafters who can't make it through the Vigilant zone. Or at least make the rewards from it tradeable.

I'd love for there to be a new mushroom ring, maybe in Velious somewhere. The merchant could stock the different plants and other decorations from the different DoV zones (i.e. the blue and red trees from Pools would be especially popular!!)

More plants and different kinds of flowers. Roses, daisies, sunflowers, lillies, and others would be very popular.

Fruiting trees (a special bonus would be clicky fruiting trees that you can get actual edible fruit from!)

We need more fish plushies badly! I love making fish tanks, but it's a little disturbing that all the fish available to us are man-eating ones SMILEY Like some tropical fish, or betta-type fish would be neat.

Last one: could you please make it so light sources can be seen through the tapestry of the steam lord? I like to use the blue flamey torches sunk down to make a neat light effect in tanks, but the steam lord tapestry blocks all light from it.

So i know i've said this before, but they've yet to do this.

Prestige housing ideas:

1. Shadow oak, the entire shadow oak with abiltiy to break out into darklight (preferably 800 item count))

2. Marrian style prestige house, preferably situated on the isle of mara

Housing decoration ideas:

1. Statues of all the worshipable gods for altar rooms etcetc ((maybe even some of the non-worshipable ones, like Saryrn? *hopes*))

2. Maj'dul themed tiles!

3. Darker colored stone building blocks and tiles-dont get me wrong, the adamantine and drunder tiles are nice...but...too bright for the evils to properly enjoy!

4. Arches!!!!

5. an actual sink, i dont care if looks modern, or whatever, but i've wasted 20 items before in a house just to make a good looking sink.

6. water tiles, i love the steamlord tapestry, and the polished ice, but the watery platform with the oval arch is a pain to hide, and the fires at the top of the steamlord tapestry make it a pain too.

Note that all items listed ((minus the prstige houses)) i would prefer to be quested or crafted, or even city festival or gottos, PLEASE dont list them on SC first.

I would like to be able to fly, nice to get a better perspective and would make it easier placing items up high.

There's also a bug which has not been fixed:

The house item "Trophy of the Hunter" gives a speed buff in standard homes, but it is not working in prestige homes, where it is most needed, for running from one end to the other...

In-game control of the pitch and roll of house items. I agree, Ive asked for it a zillion times and not even an answer. I dont use the editor and it would help so very much to be able to move items at will. Im loosing hope.

I'd love to see some sort of memorial statue or fountain that could be purchased or given out by Guides for guildmates that died.

Ideally, I would love to see the ability to take an empty picture frame and put a screenshot of the recently deceased in it.

White walls, white floor. Nothing fancy. Nothing sticking out. No highlight colors. No glowing effects. No nothing, just white!

A new NPC relica, a la Qho: Shorty from the Finicky Frogloks quest. "Short frog coming through!"

Also, perhaps, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

-Furniture Dye tubs

-Opening cabinets, drawers, cupboards

-Interactive beds, chairs, sofas

-Musicbox/Radio/phonograph that can play music that you find or create somehow

-Curtians

-Windows that display the outside of your house

-Shutters/Curtains/Blinds that open and close and actually fit on the windows

-Smaller prestige houses that are more like a home than a dungeon

-The ability to place anything you find as decor

-Ceilings that work (bought 1 at the city festival and it does't work.)

There are some great ideas in this thread but these two are top on my list at present.  The number of times I've wished for this in the past week is unbelievable!!!!  Warping tiles in particular would be amazing.

You know you've spent entirely too much time on Facebook when you try to /like someone's comments.  (So consider the comments about in-game editing of pitch and roll liked.)  ^_^

I'm sure someone else has already thought of this, but I haven't heard anyone mention it and I nearly jumped out of my chair when I thought of it, so here goes:  Since all of the villages are now instanced, perhaps we could get prestige housing versions of them?  They can't be any more of a drag (hah!  I typed 'dragon' at first) on resources than any of the enormous prestige houses or player dungeons...  Who wouldn't want the chance to decorate their own Willow Wood or Temple Street?  My mind is reeling with ideas.

To summarize for the tl;dr crowd-

I've been working with the sand tiles and wavy sand tiles recently when it occured to me how handy it would be to have sand mounds - like the snow ones perhaps elongated to create a few sand dunes.  Even snow drifts without the flakes would be good too - pretty much all the nature style tiles could use some mounds - fallen leaf tile - with mounds = raked leaves etc SMILEY

1.  Increase the item count by 500

2.  Secret doors

3.  Selective looting.  [IE:  the ability to mark individual items as collectible (like a book or a sword, for instance).  It would greatly assist in player-run events ["find the sword within the tree and bring it back across the sea."]

4.  Portals to specific Dungeon Maker dungeons

5.  Access to homes from neutral locations so that players of different alignments may visit without risking life and limb.

6.  Water and lava falls

Probably posted before:

Clear glass tiles

Plain Water tiles

A fix on the "floating a foot above" tiles that you have enlarged.
