I need something like a partitioning screen.
In the arrangement I have in my law office when I have 50 desks crammed into my office, clients can definitely see other people’s materials.
I also sleep in a bed that is provided in a nearby office or retail store before I call or actually go to some facility the next day, but I sleep where I can be seen by staff and clients because the office has no back yard, lol
While I find the furniture in this game to be almost purely visual (I think TV, fridge, and computer are the only usable ones?), I do have quite a bit if fun getting it all setup. I am hoping there is a little more usability in the items and more of a need for it in the future. I got excited when I saw employees requesting items until I realized that they don’t really use it. They just want it there.
To be honest, they could wipe the whole furniture aspect out of the game and I wouldn’t really miss it. I just think that if it is going to be there, there should be a bit more utility to it than just placing it and looking at it. My apartment right now has more storage shelves than anything else and just acts as a storage for items I need for stores when the appliance or office store. Computer/TV for Fun, Bed for sleep, Fridge for food. I’m shocked the stove is an option considering I can’t find a way to even use it.
I wouldn’t even really consider the wardrobe as “Functional” as it just lets you use the defaults. If we could purchase clothes and store them, I’d see the use in it.
On a side note, I think we should be able to buy food in bulk and store it in our fridge. I’m sick of making 5 trips to the store to stock my fridge up with 50 items when I can grab a box of fresh food from my warehouse but can’t use it.
Of course! And that’s why the game is still Early Access, since some aspects like that aren’t implemented yet!
True, it is currently just the defaults, but that’s still a functional item - without it, you can’t change clothes in-game! But almost everything, including this, will be expanded during the Early Access development. For instance, EA 0.2 should bring “Improved Characters: more variations”, which should include more clothing and everything!
I went through the roadmap a few times and know that it is all possibly temporary so I’m not really venting (Hope it isn’t coming off that way). I’m just stating my feelings for the current state. I tried using the wardrobe today and it is okay but I don’t see myself using it yet. Like I said, I can live with or without the option of furniture in the game. I’m just avoiding using any of it for now since it is still a work in progress. Can’t wait to see what it turns into though.
