I would prefer option (A) over option (B), but anything would be nice to give our towns more customization options and allow for smaller and more quaint and charming CBs.
    Thanks for clarifying! I do like option A very much - i wish all CBs/houses had at least one other design to choose from!

The advantage in my view would be smaller, more quaint and charming community buildings. For me personally, there is nothing charming about the Bakery "factory." It looks like a factory and not like a small-town bakery that I would pop into with a friend to for a tasty homemade concoction, before continuing our stroll onto other shops. I want to make my town a place I would want to visit in real life, with small shops and mom and pop businesses lining the streets to pop into and say hello.

    I would just love to see some smaller CBs offered, instead of some of the more glitzy, larger (and not always to my taste) options currently offered.
    Thanks for clarifying OK, so it would be choices for these (which exist already) and an "instead", not additionally.
    I have my doubts that alternatives for the layout of anything will be given, but wouldn't contradict your wish for more small buildings at all. (the contradictions will come, no doubt and as always, once something is introduced, here from high rise lovers .)

    Not keen on new things to build and place somewhere w/o more land, though.

    It would make the game more interesting and our cities more diverse. I personally don't care for many of the current CB options and having other choices would be nice.

    My ideal city/town would be a walkable place with loads of charm. I love the idea of customization.
    Thank's for the explanation missy. In the first attempt I thought you wish them as an addition. As a choice I confirm they would be perfect as CBs
    I love the idea of customization as well. Individuality is the essence of the fun in designing a town and it is the ingredient that makes visiting other towns interesting.

    You're welcome! Me too ... There are many I don't plan to build because they don't make sense to me. It seems some of us have CBs we like and ones we don't care for, so this would give everyone options. And if someone got tired of a CB, perhaps they could build the other one.

    I forgot to clarify -- yes, the Coffee shop would be a separate building from the Cafe. So a town could have both a proper coffee shop and a proper cafe.


    So for example --

    Level 13, Music Store or Barber Shop

    Level 14 Bowling or Bodega/Corner Store

    Level 15 Toy Store or Soda Fountain/Pharmacy

    Level 16 Photo Center or Bakery (CB)

    Level 17-23 (Rocket Ride, Observatory, Library, University, Theater, Art Gallery, Circus) We could leave these and if someone didn't want to build one of them, they could skip that CB. *Asterisks will denote similar levels below.

    Level 24 Parking Garage or Antique Store

    Level 25 Gas Station*

    Level 26 Taxi Company or Hardware Store

    Level 27 Drive In or Coffee Shop

    Level 28 Office Building*

    Level 29 Hotel*

    Level 30 TV Station or Department Store

    Level 31 TV Tower or Book Store

    Level 32 Ferris Wheel*

    Level 33 Roller Coaster*

    Level 34 Stadium or Five and Dime (like an old Woolworth's with the luncheon counter)

    Level 35 Pet Store or Pub/Local watering hole

    Level 36 Weather Station or Beach Gift Shop

    Level 37 Skydiving School or Bait and Tackle Shop

    Level 38 Comic Book Store or Souvenir Shop

    Level 39 Coast Guard*

    Level 40 Supermarket or Green Grocer

    Level 41 Greenhouse or Diner

    Level 42 Water Park or Beach Motel

    Level 43 Motor Show or Surfboard Shop

    Level 44 Hydroelectric Power Plant*

    Level 45 Fashion House or Art Movie House (historical deco theaters from the 1900s with pipe organs for silent films)

    Level 46 Motion Picture Studio or Beach Gift Shop

    Level 47 Municipal Court*

    Level 48 Go-Kart Racing or Marina

    Level 49 Fitness Center or Lighthouse #2 (another lighthouse for people who want more lighthouse options)

    Level 50 Spa or Beach Restaurant

    Level 51 Golf Course or Beach Bar

    Level 52 Organ Hall*

    Level 53 Donut Shop*

    Level 54 Race Track or Tug Boat docking station (brainstorming here)

    Level 55 Rock Climbing Wall or Key West Hotel

    Level 56 Auto Repair Shop*

    Level 57 Planetarium*

    Level 58 Flower Shop*

    Level 59 Horse Track or Lighthouse #3 for players who would like additional lighthouses

    Level 60 Music Venue or Nightclub (small towns have night clubs complete with neon signs)

    Level 61 Car Wash*

    Level 62 Dolphinarium or Yacht Club

    Level 63 Lighthouse*

    Level 64 Skyscraper*

    Level 65 Bike Rental*

    Level 66 Kindergarten or ?

    Level 67 Canine Center or ?

    Level 68 Bank*


    * Denotes building that that one could choose to build or skip.

    Extremely ambitious wish list. Being around here since the “dark ages” it is always exciting to see ONE of our wishes realized by the Devs. And, of course, dozens of others fall by the wayside or stay forever on the Frequent Wish List.

    I’m afraid you’re in for further disappointment since your list is so large and complicated. Some of the items may come in due time - the Devs are frequently editing things (wind turbines, anyone?) so a redesign of things we already have - the cafe, the barber shop, the small market are always possible.

    Sorry, to be a Debbie Downer, but based on past experience I don’t see your overall concept going anywhere.

    I am a realist. I am familiar with how devs are conservative in implementing changes. But it may spark ideas, and if enough people want smaller CBs or different options for CBs, the concept could become a reality some day.

    The list is an invitation to everyone on the forum to share their examples of small-town or nautical-themed buildings they would like to see implemented, along with me sharing some of my own ideas. It would not necessarily be "large and complicated" -- it would depend on how the concept was implemented. If the devs add some of these building ideas to future levels, that would not be as involved. Having multiple CBs per level would be more involved, but Playrix could do a test of one level--one choice of two CBs on level 40, for instance.

    Yes, a redesign of some buildings is another possibility.

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained. I have seen this theme echoed on this forum: smaller CBs, smaller housing, so it could be possible one day.

    I like the idea of choosing between options for town buildings. I tried to hold off on building the ones I hated but found it was impossible to never build them. Would love an old fashioned pharmacy instead of the fashion house (which I've managed to hide almost completely).
    The devs could set up a series of CBs of different types and styles and say you need to pick 10 or 20 to complete your town and let you choose what they are.

    Katville, I see what you mean. I am doing some calculating for building my next couple of factories and in order to reach the necessary population to build the factories, I will have to build some of the ones I am not as fond of.

    The fashion house is one of the ones I hope I never have to build. I'll have a look at your town and see how you hid it in case I do have to build it one day.

    Yes, and perhaps make all of the interchangeable ones the same size. A 2x2 would replace another 2x2, for example.

    Far be it for me to suggest new ways for Playrix to make money, but maybe to unlock the alternatives one would have to pay T-cash? Just a thought.

    Without typing a huge paragraph, part of the fun for me is seeing what we've all done with the same available elements and how different each town is. I dislike this idea of choice. That said I dislike a lot of the CBs as they stand. But everyone using the same basic puzzle pieces in a way that shows their personality is interesting to me.

    This sounds alll good and stuff but I wouldn't want anymore CB the reason why is the building stuff takes up so much space i your barn and some times you have to sell them to make room for the stuff you really need. And than when you are at the level you need to get the CB you have to wait because you may have sold them already. Bad enough you need to keep them if you want to do anyhthing with your zoo. Which I always seem to forget I have. If anything I wish they would make warwhouse for all the bulildung stuff we need and keep the barn just for the goods. But that's just me.
