I'm sure alot of you sometimes sit in their personal spaces while listening to music in real life.
You're talking to a good and close friend or your loved one and as time goes by and the sunset starts to burn, the moon comes up and stars start glowing - this would be the perfect time for a dance. So you stand up, stand close in front of each other and... nothing happens .
So now you are at the right place, with the right person, in the right time, everything ready and set - just Home is not.
And here the suggestion to change that:
An active dance item.
1. What it does: It allows you to dance with a partner.
2. How it works: First you hit play to start the whole thing. Now you are in a Lobby (compare with Pool tables). And same as with the pool tables someone can join in to that Lobby - with the difference that you can not play it on your own, it requires two players. Looking like this:
Once both are in you hit Play Now.
Now you will see a second menu, giving you the option to choose a dance style.
As for example this could be:
Now you can choose whether you want music on or off. And in case you choose "On" it will play a matching sound dependent on the dance style you choosed before.
This could be a loop sound, what would make less effort to create this item.
When selected all options, you hit a "ready" button and the show can begin!
It will take a few seconds now, because it will "scan" the personal space. Basically the same what happens in the "MiniBots: Battlebox" game by Juggernaut Games. It does that, so the game knows where is a table and a chair, a wall etc. so you can not just mistakenly walk through it.
For those who do not know what Minibots: Battlebox is, watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zCAOVHOCe20&feature
Once the space is scanned and area mapped it counts down with stick sounds and the music starts playing (or not) and the avatars start dancing - together, in the style which was selected on the menu.
3. How to controll: Yes - if we have the area to it, we should also fully use it. That means make the dance controllable and with special moves!
You can dance on the same place (would be a option when you do a romantic head on shoulder dance) OR you can move around while dancing.
When you dance there will be the D-Pad shown on the screen, just like this:
You can start the whole thing by hitting the button which has the green color. Now you partner has 2 seconds of time to hit the same button. When done successfully the both dancers will move to the right side (in this example). Then another button will become green and the same will be done with this one (left, right, up, down).
Now if you and your partner get it to hit 15 buttons in a row without any mistake the color of one button will change.
When this happens and you both get it to hit this button at the same time after a little countdown without any mistake... Your avatars will do some special dance move.
Now the whole thing with the green button starts again and everytime you get the other colored button another special dance movie will be made.
If you just hit nothing at all, they will simply dance where they stand at.
Extra: You can talk while dancing.
Now community, what you think? Would that be something you like?

No more t-shirt rewards nobody wears them.. I understand its something that's cheap for you guys to give away but enough is enough..
How about footwear or hand items instead.. Girls love shoes and guys love guns.. I cant imaging these types of items could be anymore difficult than a t-shirt..
Home needs a zoo!
A public space full of animals people can view. It would be a great place to go relax with friends or by yourself. You can make a zoo gift shop with safari themed clothes and get free items (not shirts... something fun and interesting like stuffed animal ornaments and stuffed animal hand items people can carry around!) from viewing animal exhibits.
I would love some bathroom fixtures in home. We have a few choices for tubs & toilets, but are lacking in sinks & vanities.
I like the traditional pedestal style
Or more contemporary styles like below
But I really like vessels too
Also vanities with mirrors attached, or maybe lit mirrors as wall hangings.
Right now our only choice in sinks is the Ghostbusters kitchen sink, which looks kinda funny in a bathroom.
Some other typical bathroom items: cabinets that fit above the toilet, tile flooring, shower tubs, med. cabinets, bath rugs.
