    Unbelievable. How dumb can they be? They can make these "improvements" but can't just open up more land? Can't get rid of the stupid rounded corners? Make the footprint smaller? Nah, lets just throw them something that will make them think we hear them.

    Very useful information! I’ve basically done the same with all the trophy challange buildings, although I moved the big Pirate Kraken somewhere else, since it collects every 4 hours, so it gets collected when Merlin collects. Having them all together really speeds up trophy collecting, makes sure you got more and help me place much higher. Last event I finished top 10 in all 3 Trophy challanges , so the 60 or 75 gems were nice.

    I always clear out that initially spot of land we got before any new events, for new buildings and/or recent buildings that still collect items. It really helps with collecting for event items. It’s nice having those buildings in a constant easy location.

    Completely agree with most buildings being atleast a row to large. I remember complementing them, something I rarely do, for listening to us, when they added the last big land expansion last year and made the edges of the plots of land straighter, so buildings fit better. Believe they were also making buildings a little smaller around that time too. Glad to see they found a way for me to stop complementing them though. They haven’t opened up most of that land, and doubt they will this year, and it seems like they went back to slightly larger buildings.

    I understand why they don’t let us, or can’t let us do that, but agree it would be extremely helpful if we could.

    Was kinda thinking the same thing. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate that they are atleast attempting to “fix” some of the things they broke, but not sure why they don’t fix others? I know it would take some work, but I wouldn’t think it would take that much, to straighten up some of the corner edges of the older plots of land to give use a little more land to build on. For example the plots of land between Cinderella’s castle and It's a a Small World. Removing some of the curved unusable areas with trees or shrubs and making them useable land would really help a lot.

    Yeah we liked the square ones a lot more than the Mickey shaped ones.

    What’s rule 34?

    Slightly of topic, but anyone else having issues with that permanently fixed banner ad they’ve recently added to the bottom of every DIS thread page? Works fine on my phone, but has issues on my tablet. Stays at the bottom when I’m in vertical mode, but when I scroll pages in horizontal mode it kinda jumps around and really annoying.

    EDIT: just tried to correct a spelling error on my phone and couldn’t because the ad covered up the save button.

    Yeah, it seems like something that is a good thing and will be nice to have (sometimes it is a pain to get a building to move just one spot) but doesn’t really address what people are complaining about

    Agree! The changes sound like a nice start and will hopefully be improved as time goes buy. I was just wondering why the would take all the time trying to “fix” something they know is broken, but refuse to open up any of the 12 unopened land? Just seems logical to open up enough new land to accommodate new attractions for an event.

    It’s not just kids. There are still adults out there that refuse to see anything Pixar or Disney because they think cartoons are just for kids. But there are kids that will only see one or two animated films a year, and I don’t know if it’s their decision or their parents, but instead of Disney or Pixar, they’ll see Blue Sky, Illumination, Dreamworks, or worse!!.... ...Sony animation! Some of the adults that think cartoons are just for kids, if they see anything, it will be something by Sony. And of course, that just cements their belief that no adult can enjoy any of this

    I hate how I have everything butted up against each other, yet characters and whatever moving item you need to collect is in between them. If there’s no room, they shouldn’t be walking there! I can’t click on them because all it sees me doing is clicking on a building. So sim stuck waiting until they leave the area.

    What’s bad is the expense of it all. I am a day one player, and only just now cleared the 2nd rear fantasyland space. That $2 MILLION!!! How much is the 3rd lot? How long will it take for me to get all that? Just open up everything, and have up just complain about the price. Everything fits, but it will cost you an arm and a leg.

    Oh dear...

    Yeah... ...it’s why you don’t really ever want to accidentally wander through deviantart.com. You think you’re safe, because the image you clicked on during your safe google search was ok, but just like YouTube, you can accidentally end up someplace dark.

    I was a dA member,at one point and was disgusted at some of the overwhelming genres posted on that site. I won't go into detail on them. The forums are worse than the site itself,and when you complain about said "art" (because to me,that aforementioned stuff really isn't),you're told one of several things:grow up and get off the Internet,art is subjective,and your art isn't any better. Mine wasn't Picasso standards,by any means,but it wasn't one of those pieces. MLP and Sonic recolours are not art. Fetish and inflation pictures are not art. I blocked the site recently because I wouldn't stop downloading 3d models(you can still access the site without an account).

    (Fun fact:I closed the account permanently a couple years back because I tried to start a revolution for the true artists in the forums.Guess where that got me.)

    I could see their point, given the amount of nudity art from the renaissance, but they should be classified differently. Like DA could host the images, but you have to be shown the 18+ warning. Sure, kids can lie about their age, but at least it’s users know going in. Not cool when you’re looking up princesses and your mom walks in at the most inappropriate time. That is to say, not a problem I ever had. Back in my day DA wasn’t around, and it could take MINUTES to load an image.

    From what I’ve found though, most DA submissions, which aren’t original creations, tend to be drawn by middle schoolers, freehanded from memory alone, using colored pencils. Thankfully though, those tend to not be vulgar.

    The quality is one thing,it's the subject. Renaissance art is on a totally different scale than these were;maybe I'm being hypocritical of that,but those were done by artistic masters at a time when painting nudes was a thing. I have nothing against that at all.

    Nudes on dA-those are not artistic masters. Some of them are quite graphic,and I had to report quite a few of them because the creators would not use the mature filter. I'm in my 30s,you think I still want to see that junk on a site that's supposed to promote artistic talent? I've got absolutely nothing against fanart,done it myself,but come on!At least put some effort into it instead of putting existing characters in different colours and claiming they're "original". Oh,and don't get me started on the photography!

    Well, people claim that copy of Mona Lisa with a mustache is “art.” How “original” is that? It still took skill to paint it. But it’s 2019, for all we know, the pieces you’re speaking off were stolen digitally, and took two seconds on photoshop to do. I have seen some good examples though where characters from a less popular show or movie were given life, sometimes with characters from a completely different property. But they clearly weren’t traced out of a coloring book or something. The artist actually drew them in different poses, even clothing.

    I have no idea what you guys are talking about and I think that's okay lol. We should probably get back to talking about the game.

    The one above you is my bad. I tried to reply to that quote, my phone malfuntioned, and it's half-done. Just ignore it, I don't care anymore anyway.:snooty: The rest of them are arguing about the finer points of internet art, and what makes it or breaks it. I'm sitting out on that one.....

    So, a bit annoyed. LM was my next "group" to finish leveling up so I started them during the TC before we found out about the next event. I still have 5 items causing possible gathering conflicts. I think I can get at least 2 of those gone by the time the event launches, but still annoyed with myself for focusing on one group. Had I spread it out, I probably wouldn't have any conflicts (on the plus side, the ones not already at 10 will be at 9 and ready to level once they aren't needed.)

    I just sent Ariel and Eric to do the “part of your world” task for the first time, and I’ll admit I was a bit surprised. Zoomed all the way out it feels a bit PG-13 haha

    I tried to take one for the team and complete a survey on my game this morning, but I was half asleep and got frustrated when they tried to make me tell them what I use Twitter and Pinterest for when I already said I don't. So I gave up. I don't think they care what I think anyway.
