Something that needs fixing that it seems has been forgotten about....

Prev1
i hate the things and will not use them. I've never seen a blazing orange brick wall. Maybe if they were a more realistic brick color, I just think they are so ugly.

The best use I've seen of them is the one person who posted a screenshot where they had made them look like stairs and then had the Santa's Little Helper balloon positioned so it looked like it was running up the stairs chasing a "frisbee" (the black hole). Most creative thing I've seen in a long time and best use of an ugly design element.

    Yah. Must admit i bought a bunch but really no use. I thought they were a sign that there were some new cool tasks related to them.
    Is there anyone out there?

    Haha that sounds awesome! Wonder if I can find that...off to the search function!!

    And I agree, they are ugly. I haven't used them either.

    I have not bothered with this item and now that I know they fit poorly, regardless of the resizing I will not buy any now.

    I have two places enclosed in brick in my town - the weather station and Channel 6's backyard. The walls used to snap together nicely and now there are gaps at the corners no matter how I arrange them. So, yes, it is driving me crazy! I do hope they fix it or when the snow melts the flaws will be even more obvious!

    I agree with Lissarv68, the color is just unrealistic and tacky looking. Why not make the brick walls... Ya know, brick color... :?

    I wanted to use them for the school yard but they are just so ugly, I think what makes me hate them is that the line in between each of them is so noticeable so it looks like really weird, had the line between each of them were not as noticeable I probably would have bought them but I will just keep the regular gate around the school cause it looks like more from the show anyway.

    I think the post has the word 3d in it. It's the same guy who does all the really things with hedges and fences.

    Wow! I just noticed this. Surrounded the Retirement Castle with them and now one corner has an over hang...and being such a stickler, it will be something I will be focused on fixing. This is when an option to move multiple items at once would be handy!!

    Post a pic. On the corners, they dont (except one way), they leave a gap...

    Horrible things, only reason I have a couple is so I can have an alleyway by the side of Moes for the washer & dryer.

    the gap they're referring to is when you try to align them on a 90 degree bend.

    Yes the corners, as the walls are not the full width of a square, this happens... this is what Im referring to. The gap, and then the way off "centering" on the right hand side.

    (I'll add the pic to the first post too)

    The update screwed up what I had going. I made a few adjustments and was left with one gap. It's now behind a tree. They need to rework the way all of the fencing fits together. I'd like it to be sold by square and work similar to the way you can drag pavement.

    I agree!! Why does his task with a premium item pay out less than a normal 30 min task?

    Why not make the people a more realistic colour while they're at it? Yellow is a bit too much ;)
