    I hope there is an Ikea option where we get to put the furniture together ourselves.  Meatballs plz.

    I am a little underwhelmed by this. The descriptions don't really seem to reflect what you alter in the creation process. For example, I altered a tapestry to have the colour gold and the ornate style. This is the result:

    a ornate tapestry

    Hanging from copper hooks upon a wooden rail, this tapestry is worked in rich colours.

    What was the point of altering it to be gold? Another example, a short, broad, classic glass bench:
    Devoid of ornamentation, this bench comprises of two sturdy legs that support a solid platform. The 
    seat grants ample accommodation for the general populace.

    These descriptions seem a little generic for my tastes and I was hoping that the decisions we make in the crafting process would actually provide more flair and meaning.

    I imagine just like the forging descriptors if someone wanted to work on fleshing them out @Nicola would (possibly) implement them?

    Also, this is pretty irritating:

    Your sudden movements spoil your work at furnishing your frame.

    You say with a thick, Dwarven accent, "stuff."

    Furniture: (Not sure if any of these have been suggested or already exist. Sorry if either/both)
    -picnic table
    -wall shackles (goodness..)
    -poker tables (too much? Could take away wanting actual poker and just make it a 'game table'. I want my own roulette wheel, but I'm not gonna ask for it. I just wanna sit in my house and bet, lose and win my own gold so I can stop actually gambling and still get my fix.)
    -rocking horse
    -safe/vault (I'm willing to accept this being lockable for you whining desperate types. Granted, I still say if we start getting a bunch of lockable furniture, lockpicking needs to be introduced. I really do not want to debate further why 'its my stuff why should you be allowed to get it?' 'then why do you even need locks?' anymore. Please, don't attempt to start it back up. Imma ignore you.)
    -bins, instead of trash bins (my last post) just, bins.
    -writer's block

    Idea:
    Heeyyyyyy. You know what'd be pretty awesome? Pyrography. Or really, since I know there's a bunch of materials and stuff, just the ability to engrave or label furniture. Maybe put your mark or name on it, or specify what it's for, or dedicate it to someone, etc. Mark different chests and chairs and stuff. So when someone says 'I DONT SEE YOUR NAME ON IT' You can point at it and call them a bitch. 

    Materials:

    Not gonna get into the debate, but, how would you envisage lock-picking working?

    I don't know if this topic is closed yet/if this has already been mentioned, but can we add altars to the list of furniture?

    Slipping the stem of the snifter between your middle and ring fingers, you hold a cure for writer's block in your palm, warming the liquid before gulping the contents.

    I'm a bit chuffed that we had tons of ideas posted here on the forums, but no one that posted ideas made classleads for them. And then classleads closed and I forgot to classlead stoves, which you used to be able to buy. :( 

    Anyway, have any of these bugs been worked out yet? I've been bugging, typoing and ideaing things like crazy trying to make this work.

    I figured these were apart from classleads and the ideas would be implemented independent of them, which is the only reason I didn't classlead anything. I assume others thought similar! Most things don't get a whole thread dedicated to them after all, asking for further ideas to be implemented.

    Good catch on the stove though, I had forgotten that had to be requested from him. Definitely need to have that added back with the other missing furniture pieces! I'm also curious for an update, as it seems there's still several bugs/issues/missing bits/lots of room for improvement. I assume things are a bit slow due to birthday things though.

    The bugs are crazy broken. I have 10 in the system that are legitimate bugs. A lot of the costs are not working correctly, and some of the samples aren't working either. Its making things very difficult to do anything with furnishing.

    Also, as I discovered today, the cost for altering height, width and depth(which is not listed, go figure) is the original commodity cost/2.5.

    Since the fate of wicker hangs in the balance, maybe we can get reeds as a material substitute.

    This last round really did even things out. I'm still a bit underwhelmed by the options for furnishing, and would really like to wish upon a star for some kind of customization template for them a la real designing (even if it is for certain dimensions).
  • NicolaNicola Administrator Posts: 421 Achaean staff
    @Haloshire that unfortunately isn't going to happen due to the sheer amount of time admin oversight requires for the already existing "designer" tradeskills.

     A classic broad bed made of alder rests here. A classic brown blanket rests here spread out over a broad classic low-gloss stained cotton-covered alder bed.

    You lie on a broad classic low-gloss stained cotton-covered alder bed.

    lol'd. So comfy and full of descriptors. 

    Edit: It would be nice if the word stained could be moved to the end of the list so that it doesn't look like I'm lying down on a filthy mattress.
