    I don't know if it is a placeholder but

    • Recipes:
    • Clocks (6)
    here I'd list each individually so that it gives the proper long impression.

    Just like you have it for the Antique Collection you might want to have a header for the halloween themed stuff
    • Recipes:
      • Clocks (6)
      • 2017 Halloween Theme
        • Prison Sign
        • Pillory
        • Prison Cage
      • Antique Furniture Collection
        • Coffee Table
        • Round end table
        • dresser
        • dining table
        • dining chairs
        • hallway table
        • chair
        • curved arm chair
        • drawer tables
    Also while I don't know the in game name, just judging by the listing here - I'd recommend against using just the names like "pillory" or "Prison Cage" for objects since that makes it harder for you to add diversity later on. Where maybe "Plain Pillory" or "Basic Pillory" - "Metal Prison Cage" or "Rough Prison Cage" makes it easier for later additions.

    Last release there was some discussion what loot and recipe meant. So using this list as an example:

    • New Clothing:
      • Leather Quiver (recipe)
      • Leather Doublet (loot)
      • Fancy Doublet (loot)
      • Buckled Gambeson (loot)
      • Buckled Cross Hatched Gambeson (loot)
      • Angled Tabard Gambeson (loot)
      • Split Tabard Gambeson (loot)

    Things that people asked/discused does the recipe mean that it is one we can purchase from merchants, or that it is in the Loot packs? Loot does that mean loot packs or things mobs have and which gives or doesn't give patterns etc.

    So maybe add something more descriptive?

    For instance
    (merchant recipe) vs (loot bundle recipe)
    (mob loot) vs (mob loot with pattern salvage chance)

    An old idea that I thought I'd repeat. Since so many reviews on the interwebs and such feedback etc seems to resolve around the last bit of your message there.
    Could maybe be an idea to consider that info at the top instead right after the intro instead of at the bottom.


    "
    So, now that it is clear what you can expect, we should also be as clear about what you should NOT expect:


    • Stability: Stability should be much better than previous releases now that we have upgraded to Unity 5.6.
    • Performance: INSERT NEW PERFORMANCE STATEMENT
    • Game Loop: Release 46 is a further iteration on our game loop, but is still missing a few key components and some balance. Expect this to expand with each subsequent release.
    • Visual Quality: Efforts to improve visual quality are ongoing. We will continue to iterate on these until we have highly competitive visuals.
    • Pledge Rewards: Pledge Rewards that have been built and have tech to support them are in the game; all other rewards are awaiting either content creation or tech support. You can find an updated list of these items in the known issues.
    • Delayed Content and Features: As mentioned above, some features scheduled for this release did not make it (and in each case we explained why). In some cases items from previous releases move into the next release but often they will move further out, either into the next quarter, or even farther.
    • Story Additions: The main storyline is now complete, but many aspects surrounding the main storyline are incomplete. Various side-quests and opportunities to gain or lose virtue are yet to be added. Content of this nature will be continually added and improved upon, even beyond the commercial launch of Shroud of the Avatar.

    Fixed this sentence.

    No other tools coming online other than mower (which is at risk due to performance work).

    I know there was discussion of the fart emote but don't think this refers to that since it would be quite a feat to fart out rose petals or some other pleasant odor.

    Assuming these are reactions to good or bad smells, would a better emote description be: /smellsgood and /smellsbad?

    That's actually a total of 16 rentable rooms... If you want to get pedantic, you could rent the closet under the stairs. as a 17th :)

    To go along with the agriculture updates, perhaps when it rains an outdoor planting bed should "automatically" become watered if it is in need of water.
