Hey GG, snowy background this year???

Are we going to get the snow covered ground again?  I know some complained it's too bright.
So gray it down a tad?  (Or people could learn how to dim their monitors... shees. I read white pages all the time, what's the difference?)

Just wondering because if it's NOT coming back, I will delete all my show covered deco.  It just looks stupid on green grass.
See what I do when not playing silly games.

    Agree. The snowy decos look stupid against the brown/green backgrounds. We had almost no Christmas at all last year, and it was a bummer.

    Also, why not do something nice and get rid of the "rebuild" time on Christmas decos.

    Yes, snow please.  
  • why would I want snow in summer, if we have snow on our farms it should be ending

    I'm adding my vote for a snowy background as well; even though I'm keeping my snow-covered chicken coops & houses...my storyline is that it's the permafrost area of my farm along with the alien pigpens … hahaha. Back to the snow issue, I also hope this year GGS will have planned a great Christmas with some new Christmas events or even better Christmas decos rather than same-old same-old...here's hoping.

    BTW my wife is nearly blind an hard enough for her to see the screen normally, the brightness can NOT be dimmed on her farm, if snow came she would have to leave the game again, after I have just convinced her to come back to it.

    You think about yourselves not how it will effect other players, just to make your farms pretty, you want to chase others away. 


    NO SNOW!!!!!

    how about they sell background like they do horizon, so players can buy the snow background with gold if they want it.  Then GGS could design other background we could change as we wish to buy with gold

  • artful (US1)artful (US1) Posts: 6,066US1
    Maybe they could code a spray can, like in Paint, and we could add the amount of snow to the grounds and buildings to our liking.

    So players will then complain that GGS is wasting time on creating "artsy" stuff instead of fixing bugs..

    They can't win. :)

  • I myself don't like skins or backgrounds, but if they are going to waste time on that stuff at least sell it for gold.

  • I have several snowy backgrounds.
    All they do is cover the top bit on the farms, nothing to do with the planting areas at all.

    not the worse idea ever

    but probably the second worse

    i dont see how dimming my monitor is gonna help the lag it causes (and there's more than enough lag in the game as it is)

    Do you really have to scream at us all?  So because your wife has bad eyes no one else matters here?  I'm sorry about your wife's vision.  So perhaps at least in winter she just takes a break from this game.  It never lasted forever.  Or here's a thought, if she can't see the screen well anyway, maybe doing anything on a computer isn't a good idea for her. 

    And WHY can't she just dim the screen?  Every computer has that ability.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    I do LOVE the idea of giving us all the option.  Turn it on or off.  Same as the background image.  That would solve the whole problem for everyone.

    How about the option of different shades of snow? Not all snow is pure, bright and white!

    @Artmaker (GB1)  It is not the ability to turn down the brightness of screen, if screen is turned down she won't be able to see the rest of her farm.  As for saying players that can't handle the brightness of snow take 4 months off from the game, well that is just totally rude.  How about if you want snow and it does not come you leave the game for 4 months.  That is saying the exact same thing

    What is right (better) for some is wrong for others. It´s how it is and will always be. Making everybody happy is impossible. Majority rules most often. Question will always be what is possiible when disabilities enter the equation.

    I believe that having the option to choose between snow/not snow would be the better way here. But not that it should cost $ or gold. A free choice would show respect and has my vote. hmm if GGS would grant us this possibility.

    My thoughts :wink:

    I can sympathize with glare issues, although it begs the question how one can be online at all given most pages are a brighter white than the snow ever was.

    One player who had such issues simply zoomed in so that the surrounding areas of the farm weren't showing much, and as there is very little bare ground on the farms themselves, problem solved. Another just angled the monitor so that the white wasn't so white while the farm itself wasn't dimmed very much at all. (Try it. It works.)

    Last year's solution of just a little snow didn't work ... just looked muddy.

    We could always alternate. There was no snow last year, so it would be fair if we had it this year.

    No snow please. 

    We in Australia are heading for summer with temperatures in the high 30's to 40+C.  Snow wouldn't last 1 second.  It would look silly on an Australian farm.  It would be great if everybody had the ability to turn it on or off.

    Not trying to be rude but again, how many people do not have eye issues vs how many do?  So we all have to do without something because your wife, (and I'm sure there are others out there with eye issues) can't see well?  THAT is what is rude here.

    And again, my whole point has to do with all the winter deco ALL of which has snow.  It just looks stupid when the rest of the ground is brown.  Was hoping GG would chime in here and say we might bring it back or no, it's dead for good.  In which case I will delete all my winter deco which is just taking up space in storage all year anyway. 
    Personally I hate the snow.  And I live in Michigan. We get snow... wow do we ever get snow.  Real life snow is a LOT brighter than anything on the computer screen.

    And again, the idea of letting us turn it on or off is fantastic.  (NO GOLD. Or very little.) 
    In fact, it's autumn here, a fall leaf background would be awesome. 
    And... as someone pointed out, Australia is about to enter it's summer.  Snow now is backwards for them. 
    Giving us the option would be fun, and would solve issues for everyone.

    HEY perhaps they could do a night farm.  Your wife might be delighted with that.  The farm house could be lit up inside, animals all sleeping.  Working fields, tractors have lights so those could be dimly lit as you plant.  Everything else would be so dark, almost blacked out in some deep shade of purple.  Something for GG to think about.

    It would be nice to have the snow, but other sites have it that isn't quite so bright.
    The year before last there were people who had problems with Big Farm's snow who didn't on other sites.
    Personally I like it, but in areas where it gets too bright I just put decorations/buildings to ameliorate it.

    An idea to make everyone happy.......give us the option of snow via a popup or something we can click on screen. Personally I hate the snow background but I know others like it so give people the choice.

  • the solution is easy let players who want snow buy the background and they can use if they want to.  By making it a gold sale, you soon find out who really wanted it.
