I completely AGREE with this!
The estate is one of the coolest features about this game in my opinion. If I remembered correctly, was I not in your estate yesterday? It was opened up in roumen and I figured I would join in to see what was going on. (Might not have been you, but they were in Underworld).
I forgot how visually pleasing the furniture was, and the way that It feels like something entirely different when decorating. Kind of like a decorating game inside an MMO. It is definitely unique and I would love to see more implementations for this feature.
I remember the Outspark forum days... I was a huge advocate for unlocking the area linked to the beach - which I don't remember if they said was impossible or not. +1 +1 +1 to this whole thread.
