The SNOW tile is right off my long standing decorating wish list!!! However, they missed something.
I had published something about season changing for establishments, going from summer to winter and so on. What I’ve done is collect pure white champion plants for ages. Granted, I’m a little sad to see this go. I’m sure these new snow tiles will not have “depth”. In other words, they will be flat... white champions give the look of 2 foot of deep snow. So... yeah, I can't wait to see what they look like rather then my old way of taking care of this issue. Doesn’t mean I’ll do the tiles over the new snow tiles. hehe
The grass? Clearly, not as handy for anyone who owns a customized house. “If you want grass in that area... you would have grass in that area.” However. If you own a “classic” house? (Villa, castle, keep, small stone tower) Finally! You have garden space. It's true the “Large Marble” may be the only one with some kind of built in garden, but now you can expand on that. So I see why to have a grass tile.
What did they forget? S-A-N-D! :-) Hope my official question got asked about this one, gang. hehe. The one and very rare “issue” I have with the customized house system is that those designers “forgot” we have sand around the lands... houses in or near deserts... a ton of cacti, to garden with. That newer pipe cacti Sand. Gaza mats just don’t cut it, in my book. And, honestly, when you think about the more religious aspects of “holiday”... sand fits into it. We should get sand tiles. Of course we should also get jungle tiles too, but easily normal grass makes due. We have swamp tiles built in. Water. All kinds of great old classic ground, but not sand.
BUT... this, again, the snow tile, is something off my wish list... so everyone can now have a go at doing some winter conversions without dealing with the mutant plants. * Give this staff a thumb up, on this new item. ;-)
