Feedback - Your Favourite Skin

CM_HunterCM_Hunter Community Manager Posts: 409
We recently asked you in another survey which skin set you wanted to see extended, but this time we want to know which of these skin sets in the game you already love! The Spring set, your chosen winner, is being worked on by the Art team and we will let you know when those are done. This time around, we'd like you help us out by picking your favorite from these options. It helps us a lot to know what you guys love so that we can make plans for the future based around your interests. We can also plan the items we will put into traders, offers and more, so take the extremely simple, one question survey in the link below and share your opinion!

Thanks everyone, and happy farming!

  • I don't like the skins for the same reason as Artmaker, what use is one, just makes everything look like a jumble of unplanned mess, so I don't bother.  
  • I agree about the farms having a "mish-mash" or junk yard look to them with all the wide variety of skins.  I am to the point of going back to the original design and scrapping the skins entirely, especially since we can never complete the look.  I won't buy the skins due to the exorbitant costs.  Winning them is one thing and buying is entirely another thing.  The Fairy Tale Pig skins and the Bewitched chicken skins were cute for a while, but soon I grow tired of them.  I do like the English Townhouse skin as well as the Rural chicken coop. But getting more of these I feel will make me dig deep into the gold pockets.  So I am gravitating to the original designs, that way everything is coordinated.  I also like the snowy wintery skins to use during Dec and Jan.  Unfortunately there is no such types for the cowsheds or pigsties

  • I've been here for a year and have never seen the Spring, Indian or Rural set anywhere, so have no idea what the pieces look like.
    Is there somewhere we can see them?

    Survey done! Thank you for doing this, I personally am quite a fan of skins. Obviously not all skin lines are in your survey, so I'd like to emphasise my own favourites: 

    As a general rule, I always prefer animated over non-animated, whatever the theme  o:)

    I like to decorate each of my main farms in a very specific style/theme. So this thread is perfect to let you know which skin lines I'm eager to see extended. I hope some other farmers agree. 

    I have slightly different categories that I group together, i'll try to explain, this will take a lot of screenshots, please bear with me:


    I am completely in love with the bewitched line, and yes I totally use them throughout the year, not just Halloween :D  Please oh please extend it into bewitched pigs, bewitched cows, etc 

    EDIT: Just found out that there are indeed bewitched pigs!!! Thank you @WascallyWabbit <3
       *drool* Edit: Can't wait to see how the bewitched cows will look!



    I like to group them together and personally call it the Roman line (ignore the US flag for now lol). Love the white building material!! Please make more white/Roman buildings eg for the three mills etc!!



    For my main cherry dominated farm I love all the pinky pink /romantic skins. Please keep them coming! 



    Please extend the desert/hot/dry line too, and even more importantly, allow the existing ones' to be available so we can buy multiple western duck coops. I started another thread a long time ago, to please add them to the trader.
    https://community.goodgamestudios.com/bigfarm/en/discussion/174281/pls-add-all-skins-to-championship-trader-️#latest
    I have over a dozen ducks and would love to have them all in the same theme lol


    Honourable mentions:


    Im completely in love with the new autumn line that is being introduced within the current horse season! More of this please!!! 

    Out of the skin lines you are currently offering in your survey, the Asian one is my top choice. I would like to give immense praise to the artists, because the details here are truly wonderful, massive appreciation here!

    Out of the Asisan ones' my personal favourite are the black-roofed ones'. I hope to see more of them!



    EDIT: Please start making skins for fences&gates too! (though optimally id prefer the offer to be as one please, instead of making us pay separately for fence and gate.. pretty please)

    There are only a few pieces so far in each set. The two rural ones could be won in horse seasons a while back.

    The single spring skin was also a horse season prize.

     

    Indian skins and decos were added to the CC earlier this year. They were available a few times then it went back to Sherwood decos.

    Thanks! That's some great feedback, the artists will be pleased to read through your thoughts!

    On this occasion we're just looking at a few skin sets with a few more items in them, one of the reasons is so we can decide what skins should go in offers and traders that you guys might like more access to, but another really big one is so the artists can see what you guys are into when expanding skin sets or making new ones. It even helps them when they are designing the look of new features or items and objects in the game. If they know what you guys like your farms to look like then they can hopefully make some things that will interest you all and make your farms look great!

    I don't like the skins for the same reason as Artmaker, what use is one, just makes everything look like a jumble of unplanned mess, so I don't bother.  
    Point taken! It could be difficult to come up with a solution for this that would work for you and players like you but I'll consider the feedback and see if we can come up with anything smart that might ease this. It would just be some ideas for now but I do understand where you're coming from.

    Yes you are right about the snowy skins for pigs and cows....but since I am not going to use gold to get them, it would be nice if other events would have the snowy pig/cow skins as rewards so I don't have to use gold for them.

  • Thank you much, farmgirlmimi43.
    Those are adorable.
    -
    You wanted to know how we like the farms to look, so here goes.
    I have areas on my farms.
    On the gourmet farm is a Town Square with a school and retail buildings. In the right corner is my Ski Chalet for a nice ski trip any time of year.
    My flower farm has the Louisiana Bayou off in the lower left corner, with the wine-growing region trailing up to the top. The bottom edges have houses looking out over the bay, with the area in the center being an Amusement park.
    : )

  • Oh, meant to say...
    I would love to have a donkey and a goat skin that is SMALLER in height.
    Their normal stables are larger than the people houses, so I don't upgrade the goats as far as I'd like to, and don't even have a donkey house.

    @GrammaLeah (US1) The Wild Goat Stable is pretty cool, but I don't think that I have seen any Donkey skins at all.


    The free-range set are my favorite, I just wish they were easier to get, it is gonna take me years to all the orchards & stables. I would like to see them on GF & FF too.

    Have to admit I love the Betwitched Chicken Coop .. makes me laugh.
    .


    Hate coops but missing out on the benefits?  Check out "Hearts of Gold," the non-coop coop -- we leave you alone to farm your way.  No donations or group participation required.

  • Speaking of skins... would it be an idea anyone would be interested in to have some that look like stores?
    I don't know if others make their farms like mine, but my rural people DO need to go to town from time to time.
    Perhaps a dress shop, hardware store, pet shop, toy store, etc.
  • I like mine naked.

    I would really love to see some holiday skins -- for example, gingerbread houses just like the gingerbread house decos.

  • :) :) I love the asian skins, but I am missing an asian chickenhouse and a stable for pigs too - that would be nice to have!

    Also, as others have mentioned, some of the skins at the list we had to pick our favorite from, I have never seen before. I think that these skinsets might go with a contest theme, like the asian theme, in order to win them as prices, and that way to make sure every one gets to see the skin variations that's already there.

    And then you also could make the skins much cheaper and available, so we can get the items that we didn't win, without being ripped off.

    I would also like a field with sheep for the game, and of course with an asian skin too

  • Ok don't know if the dogs would count in here but I would love to see, different breeds of dogs (shepherds, collies,  huskys, even a St Bernard, etc) and a larger selection of colors (black & white, tan and black combinations for example).

  • My favorite skins currently in use:

    Main Farm, named "The Machine"


    Flower Farm, named "Lotus Blossom"


    I do agree having incomplete, mix-n-match, skins of particular themes is disappointing... its not like im going to build only 1 chicken coop or only 1 goat stable.  I like the spooky "halloween barn" but was only able to win just 1 from the horse event.  Luckily, it was later available in the WWC trader. (please add more skins to that trader!)

    It would be nice to decorate a whole farm---all the buildings--- in one cohesive theme, without having to spend $$$ to accomplish it.   ;)
