    Obviously I like the originals more than the alternatives.

    I like the fact that we have a sword and shield as an early stretch goal! And a statue at 35k? I'm in!!!! We already had enough pavers and fireworks. These stretch goals are like a breath of fresh air... :) And Aether is cool!!!

    I have ideas and uses for some from each of the options so I'm ok with either.

    I replied to give a shoutout to @DarkStarr for asking for our input! +1000

    I do like these alternatives better than the original list. However, if I'm being honest, I'm kind of tired of seeing the same items over and over with just a different "skin".

    I think the Aether dye box is a cool idea (so we can apply it to our own choice of gear as opposed to getting a specific item that not everyone will want to use.)

    The statue could be cool for Halloween deco I suppose. And the Clock Tower could be too, except that not everyone has a lot big enough to place it on so many will not even get to use it.

    I think I'd rather see other options like new emotes or non-combat pets that everyone will get to utilize.

    Fountains are also almost all too big for people without large open lot space. Very few fountains are less than 1m size, and are useless on a row lot. So I'm against it for the same reason as another damn clock tower. It's nice to please the whales, but there are a lot more players with row lots.

    They still have to do the same amount of work to make all the models, so there is no point in making people choose only one of them.

    I do like the idea of a replenishing dye instead of more fireworks. If I have any dyes from these monthly rewards, I haven't bothered with them because they are consumable.

    Replace the seashell with a moon. Small enough to hang on a wall in a row house, and still get water buckets. Everyone can use it. Win the Internets.

    One caveat to my YES:

    The replenishing dye: At most, make this a once per comet visit replenishment, please. Better if it is yearly... just because it would limit the creep of ice blue everything into the world.... :p

    On the weapons, I think a good thing here would be make bag rewards similar to many other things out there (as has already been recommended), but split them up.

    One tier for single handed weapons, one tier for 2-handed weapons, one tier for ranged and one for wands/staves. That allows for greater variety in rewards each month, and allows players to have their pick of the types available, without flooding the world with dozens-hundreds of the same weapon or item that people won't use.

    I like the new list better @DarkStarr. However, I am not a big fan of the crystal sword asset being recolored either.

    @DarkStarr

    Thanks for asking us for input! I like both packages, but I would ask as others have: Not another clock tower, please.

    A hat, mask, wings, boots, shoes, shirt - something that everyone can use whether they have a home or not. :)

    Happy to finally see the spear added ☺️
    I think it should have been in the Lord British package too
    Unless it has and I missed it

    @DarkStarr So one of my gripes going into these is over the favortism of certain weapons. This is a radical idea, Make a Aether Weapon Rewards bags. Break them up into 2h vs 1h if you would like or make it so you can have your choice. Either way i think that will be the better solution to satisfying the fan base as a hole. The rewards you have are stimulating but the only one i personally care about would be the Spear / Halbred skins. Getting to where i'll always get a spear skin will make me far more eager to participate in the teletons. Would probably encourage me to subscribe multiple accounts so i would get enough skins for my spears.

    Way better. I personally am a little overwhelmed of fireworks anyway.

    Great new stretch goals, @DarkStarr! Thank you!

    Like other players discussed above, I love fountains but they have such a large footprint. I wanted to memtion that I love the idea of a wall fountain but wanted to ask if it would be possible to have a future livestream goal of a tall, thin fountain with a very small footprint? Maybe something similar to a clocktower in height. That would be a really cool addition. And pretty! I am all about the deco, LOL.

    Love the dyes as a stretch goal. Any chance they will work on our Cylinder Automaton Pet?!

    Love Note About The Cylinder Automaton Pet: This pet is currently one of my favorite things in our lot. Is anyone else as infatuated with it as I am? Every time I see it, it makes me smile and go, “awwwww.” When I recall home or walk into our lot it is there to greet me. When I am standing at a crafting station it wanders over toward me. I love that it reminds me of our dog, LOL! Yes, I am weirdly attached to and enamored with my new little friend. Thank you, Port!
