    So... I was looking at the New Couches and I have some critique/Feedback.

    [​IMG]

    First thing I noticed after sitting on them is that they tend to be too far forward in the tile... Like many things lately and like the Silver Sapling is plagued by it doesn't sit properly in the tile... This is the same with the new tables from the Kings collection. Makes them pretty much unusable since you can't put your chairs anywhere near them or the chairs sit almost under the tables... so the couches are too far forward in the tile. I also put in an "old" south facing one for comparison... as you can see it sits more "centered" in the tiles.

    Second thing I noticed is that the new ones are slightly too small.... by about 33% or so .... they seem much "smaller" and my character looks like he's a giant sitting on them... It's rather like you invited a Troll, Ogre, or Ettin to come sit... Or it's rather like you going to your kids Parent Teacher Conference and sitting in the tiny little kindergarten chairs.

    Anyway other than that I'm VERY happy to see more facings and I must ask... are we going to get that nice red chair in all 4 facings soon? And would it be too much to ask to get the Throne in 4 facings?

    were there other pieces of furniture that now face all 4 directions (that previously only faced 2 directions)?

    Look a wee bit closer dear at my beetle. Most definitely NOT the CC. I quit using the CC about 6 or 7 years ago... a computer or two ago I forced myself to switch. The CC just wouldn't run well on my new PC. The EC was 10X faster. So I made the switch. Yes from time to time I get frustrated with it... but I'm still glad I switched.

    ...but you are right! The couches are not optimal!
