A change to goza mats that decorators would love

    Goza mats: both a joy and a bane to decorators everywhere. A joy because they are so useful, but a bane because of the graphical limitation of having a border. How lovely would it be for classic home owners to tile their floors in any color carpeting they want! And how (moderately) easy it would be to put this fix in, requiring no new artwork and only a couple of additions to the tailoring menu.

    Here we have the standard craftable square goza mat. Note the ubiquitous border that is only unseen when you craft a goza mat out of black cloth:

    [​IMG]

    Here you can see page 2 of the "Miscellaneous" category on the Tailoring menu:

    [​IMG]

    Note the gozas that you can make. Bordered goza mats that are both square and rectangular, and brocade-bordered mats that are both square and rectangular.

    Here is the the first page of the goza mat options on the house customize menu:

    [​IMG]

    This is a picture of the three square tiles from that menu that you can also craft from the tailoring menu (note that there is a repetitious tile in the custoimze menu, instead of there being an east and a south brocade option there are two regular east options, whoops):

    [​IMG]

    This is the second page of the goza mat options in the house customize menu:

    [​IMG]

    These are the craftable goza mats from the tailoring menu/page 2 of the goza mat house customize menu:

    [​IMG]

    And these two mats are in the customize menu (the second page, top left) but are NOT currently craftable.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The graphic exists, this would not require new artwork, but simply the addtion of two new items to the tailoring menu. They could be named "Smooth Square Goza (east)" and "Smooth Square Goza (south)", or something similar. Please look into the viability of doing something like this, it would be such a tremendous addition for decorators!

    Whilst my keep with it's totally black floor looks great with coloured fishing nets on it and other colourfull items, Having a otherwise coloured floor without the borders would look even better and would make for better customisation of none customisable houses.

    I'd also like a generic square mat with no discernible directional grain, very lightly textured, that could be used to carpet areas.

    Wonderful idea! And I do mean that in seriousness.

    Which is why, pardon my sarcasm, it probably won't be on the radar anytime soon. Things that rely on existing systems simply seem extremely hard to develop.

    Oooo! *makes with the voting thingie*

    Having just finished a castle redeco involving lots and lots of goza mats, I have to say it would have looked even cooler if they hadn't been bordered. I'd love to have the option!

  20. I GOT SO EXCITED - I thought your thread was at first saying they had made those changes (silly me for skim reading) then I discovered this is a request....big downer.

    It will be added on the same patch as the virtue system completion.

    be nice if we had the option to expand on it more and have edges for a mat/rug finish or rounded pieces to make a circle to break up the blockyness that is a pre made house. *sigh* i love gozas

    Was just wondering if I could get a response about this, if it's possible/easy/never going to happen/whatever. Thanks!

    Before this recent quiet stretch by jeremy and dev's, they had actually been talking to us, listening to us, and incorporating things we had requested. I had thought that someone in higher management had heard about the customer service issues, and had banged their fist and fixed it - but now it looks like it was just an initial burst of activity, and 'RL' has struck the team. They no longer have time to do it, it seems.

    During that brief activity, I was very hopeful. It showed me what this game could be. I felt customer service was being looked at, and ... oh.well. i degress.
    sorry.

    I think this is an easy request, all the art is there, "just" a bit of coding needed. It's something everyone can use, and doesn't impact the balance of the game at all.

    me too.

    Only thing I'm not entirely comfortable with is the name 'smooth'. But other than 'borderless' I can't think of another name to call it

    I agree that this should be an easy change as the graphic already exists as a part of the house customization tool. All they should need to do is add the proper "object id" and properties to the crafting menu. Good suggestion, lots of bang for a little "buck".

    Peace,

    If it's the only thing in a players pack...they may be willing to chase after me for it's return, so sure...I'd like the chance to steal them. Why do you seem to have a problem with that idea?...la

    ah, but Rico. They're not blessed when they're first made, only when they've been placed once do they become blessed, as with all other deeded furniture and add ons. :D

    I dunno, was it an intended change that all addons once redeeded become blessed? I remember this happening but don't remember if it was supposed to be like that.

    Just curious if this idea had been noticed.

    It would take no new art - just some coding, and would be an amazing game change for us decorators! :)

    He doesn't want to steal any goza mats. He wants attention. Any method of turning any thread into something about stealing is his prize. He loves nothing more than to steal threads...


    and the OP's idea is a good one
