Thread: Redesign Or Re-position Co-op Building & Yacht Club

  1. #1

    Redesign Or Re-position Co-op Building & Yacht Club

    I've never been a big fan of the Co-op Building's look. But especially so now with the addition of the Yacht Club (YC), the entire dock would really benefit from some redesign. Or at the very least, re-positioning.

    Dock as it is now vs. Dock proposal:

    Apologies for the bad edit. Had to use PSP8
    instead of Photoshop because my laptop is being weird.

    I moved the buildings to opposite sides and flipped the Co-op Building to face the smaller regatta dock. Takes up less space and doesn't block the view of what players have designed immediately behind.

    I messed up the road bit so don't pay attention to that (lmao). You could actually take that sliver of road out entirely. I know some players were frustrated about the co-op road not matching the road they chose for that part of their town.

    If a complete re-design is also possible, I'd love for the Co-op Building to match better with the Yacht Club. Perhaps a bit less modern? Or similar coloring?

    IDK...what do you guys think?

    What is the purpose of that plastic looking building introduced several updates ago? It does absolutely nothing. It needs to be eliminated since it has no purpose whatever.

    That's true. I guess they wanted something to symbolize the co-op chat room/group meeting place?

    Agreed on your whole proposal, Vee: remove building, remove road piece, update Co-op building. Adding the yacht club where it is feels like slapping on an edition without thought to aesthetic. Yours is much better, but I still think the whole area needs more thought in re-design. Frankly, I wish the yacht club was the Co-op building and we didn't have to have three mandatory items there (both buildings plus the "plastic" one, as Nana puts it)... but since I've not a clue the purpose for the yacht club yet, I suppose I can't critique.

    Township seems to have a bit of an identity crisis of design... some is cartoony (cake, cars, new king statue, etc), some is modern (co-op buildings, high rise buildings), and some is rural (farm motif). Certainly, some variety is appreciated, but often there are outliers that don't seem to fit with the rest of the aesthetic, the Co-op building is the biggest offender of this, IMO.

    Most of the Community Buildings design is lovely. I'd love to see more buildings and decorations in the spirit of the best originals: university, library, hospital, fire station, wedding hall. It's classic, clean, and cohesive.

    I know I'm being a bit nitpicky... but it's for the love of the game, I promise. There is so much thoughtful beauty that the exceptions stand out.

    OMG...yes! I'd much rather navigate through multiple menus/tabs than have that cluttered corner deck mess.

    Exactly.

    When it comes to permanent buildings (and especially those we cannot move/blend in) -- there should be a better system of approval in place. They could set up a poll on the Facebook Township page and have players vote on their favorite co-op building design.....or allow you to upgrade/cosmetically alter these buildings (change colors, change style, etc.) in-game. I know that would add on to their already huge workload, but that feedback is key for Township to retain its most loyal players.

    Ahh, omg! Thanks for the heads up, Sweetness. I'm surprised to see they implemented the proposed design.

    I know Natasha has been slowly forwarding bits and pieces of the Frequently Suggested Ideas list to developers.

    Need to update the list this weekend!

    Hey my dear, but if it wasn't for Nevada linking the post in the Update talks, I would have never known. So kudos to you for a great idea, and kudos to Nevada for pointing us in the right direction

    Well it's definitely better, but I still don't like it. lol. I'd much prefer they move the yacht club to the left of the co-op building and let me reclaim that area.

    LOL, I hear you. I've been thinking recently it might work better to consolidate the Co-op Building and Yacht Club into one.

    But I appreciate them trying something new. I'm enjoying the other regatta updates (re-colored and re-arranged menus).
