    It surprises me that even with all the great content that's been released, Springfield has the same ole flowers, roads and deco it did a year ago....
    But if I had my way, you would be able to: change season, switch between day/night, and choose from a dazzling array of flora and fauna. Just think of how much more time we could waste decorating our towns!


    Our beautiful towns....

    Weeds
    (this is not my idea, some other poster wrote about it, but can't remember who or where to give them credit)

    Free standing clumps of flowers - water lilies to put in the water edge, or other aquatic flowers and weeds.

    To be able to joint the rivers to the sea.

    Some other crops to put around Cletus's farm - similar to the pumpkin patches - like peas, squash, cabbage, blackberries, strawberries, etc.

    Cypres trees to line the roads leading to the cemeteries. The do look impressive, dignified and properly gloomy. In some southern European towns and villages, you know where the old cemeteries are just by following the one road lined by these beautiful trees.

    Wine yards like in California and even olive trees......

    I HATE CRAFTING. CRAFTING? Bah! Humbug!

    If you could get a road running parallel to the ocean you can run your river into it, with the "bridge" skin on one side but never exit out the other side.. It's kinda like a big drain channel that must go to the ocean even tho you can't see it...

    That's exactly what I did. It's the only way to make it look as though the river is running into the sea...

    Swamp water for the Halloween section of town, cobblestone, and wooden planks/bridges for park areas. Let us put vehicles on roads so I don't have to cheat and make "roads" out of pavement :p does anybody else do that?

    I do and it sucks sometimes trying to hide the road/pavements transitioning between the two. I would also like to be able to place stop signs and lamp poles on the sidewalks like we can with the parking meters :wink:

    I appreciate all the support!!!! I am going to keep this going until EA takes notice. Also just to clarify, I am keeping a running list of just ground covers as opposed to all decoration suggestions. So please understand that I am not dissing your suggestion. Actually 99% of them are brilliant. Overall I am trying to keep this post focused to meet the objective.

    Thanks again,

    Just thought of something and now it bugs me that we dont have it...

    Curved corners/bends for roads!

    We could choose a curved/rounded corner instead of the squared off corner of roads (like how the lakes corners are rounded), and we could rotate it all 4 ways :) they would be the same size as the road now.

    After thinking of this now all i can think of is how ugly my road is :(

    I'd love to be able to put cars in the parking spots. Heck, even just on the streets.

    Dirt!! Please. My hillbilly section is way too bright and green. Also, Nelson's house already has a dirt pad. It looks funny surrounded by grass. And roads we can place the cars on, and train tracks.

    I am going to make a poll with the above list. If anyone has any additional ground covers that they would like to add please post them today. Also, if I have missed a ground cover (not decoration) already suggested please let me know and I will add it.

    Thanks all,
