    Immersion Breaking…. :D

    Villager: “My lord come quick, another one of those cryptic messages has appeared!”

    Lord: “Ah, yes… and I see it’s signed by that Com person again.”

    Villager: ”What does it mean?”

    Lord: “Well it’s obviously a prophecy about some ring of destiny called kismet, though Com misspelled kismet, I don’t think it has a bp in it…”

    Stranger: “Hey, I see you are checking out my handy work…”

    Lord: “Oh, so you are this Com person then that’s been leaving these cryptic prophecies about the ring of kismet?”

    Stranger: “Uh, it’s my web address…”

    Villager: “My lord he must by speaking of giant spiders!”

    Stranger: “Huh? No that’s dot com… oh I get it… you’re a couple of role-players… whatever…” <walks away>

    Villager: “… that reminds me… did you post the note in the forum about our get together later?”

    Lord: “No, not yet, but there is a note on my Facebook page about it. Hey did you see the new recipes in the wiki yet?”

    Just give me the option to "block", "ignore" or "not view" the property and have it show as an empty lot.

    Agreed.

    Perhaps once a certain number of users have blocked the display of a particular lot, a GM could pop in to see what's up: Provides a implicit "reporting" mechanism for them to use.

    If they don't see anything untoward, then no harm, no foul. Otherwise they can talk with the owner. :)

    That's what's been suggested in earlier and in other threads too, but here are some questions that some Unity wizards can answer:

    - If you don't see it, does the house still physically exist in the world for you?
    - So if it's an empty lot in your view, does that mean you can walk on that empty lot?
    - If I can see the house, but you don't, will I see you simply walk through the house?
    - If you can't see the house, will you see me magically walk up and down invisible stairs, floating in the sky?

    In game ads whether from players or the game company would cause me to drop the game. I spent plenty of money on this game and I feel I deserve an ad free experience.

    All good points and yes, my thought was less than well thought out. :)

    Maybe if I block it, then I'm banned from walking on the property? Would love to see either a blank property or something similar.

    Perhaps you could see a boarded up building.

    That's ok, I suggested the same thing as well, but only with lot decorations which you know we can climb on top of so it's the same situation :)

    Perhaps another approach could be if you walk onto the property, the items will appear for you at *that* time.

    Personally, I'm more concerned with running down the road and seeing ridiculousness. If I actually enter their property, then its on my head for doing so. :)
