Well I played the game, and I feel the “Design your own Building” part of the game can be improved to be more inclined towards creative freedom.
I noticed when I got to the “Design your own Building” menu, when I press “Decorations” or “Furnitures”, nothing shows. That’s because only the decorations or furnitures you currently have in your storage stockpiles show in the menu. That’s the problem that I find with the feature.
Basically here’s what I suggest, to make all craftable decorations and furnitures accessible in the menu and place-able in the design (even if the player doesn’t currently have that decoration/furniture in their stockpile storage).
Why? For creative reasons to be frank. HOWEVER, the villagers can only complete the designed house ONCE every part of said house is complete, down to the very last decoration/furniture. That means even if every block in the house is built, it should not read as “complete” or “finished” until even the decorations or furnitures are constructed, crafted and placed.
Basically, I’m asking you devs to make it so that villagers (of the required profession) will automatically craft the decorations and furnitures used in the designed house, but only if the resources or materials needed are available locally or are stored in the storage stockpile.
This way, creativity in the game is much more free and fast paced.
Because right now, what I’m doing is spending countless hours harvesting and gathering all the materials needed to craft a decoration/furniture I desire and training my villagers to the required professions to be able to enable them to craft the decorations or furnitures I desire, then I spend more countless hours repeating the process until I have all the decorations/furnitures I desire stored in my stockpile. Only then am I able to freely design a house that satisfies my creative hunger.
To sum all of this up, the whole point of “designing” my own building was basically to draw up a theoretical blueprint of my house, and without first hand access to all the decorations and furnitures in the game, it limits my ability to draw up a blueprint to basically just placing clumps of rock or wood called walls and floors.
You could also make it so in the menu, you could switch between modes when you select “decorations” or “furnitures” to show the stuff that you only have or all the stuff in the game at once.
