Improved ball pit?

From the patch notes and the screen shots posted - they've made improvements on the darn ball pit with this patch.

It's hard to tell exactly how improved it is without seeing a video, but from the screenshots that has been posted, there is less of a flat surface, and more and better ball textures. I might actually buy the toddler stuff at some point now.
What are your guys thoughts?
Allons-y!

    I'd love a before and after pic, to help me decide whether to get the pack. ;)

    The new ball pit looks far better! It initially kept me from buying the stuff pack even though I really liked the jungle gym, but I might reconsider now

    Yep, the texture is alot better, and I like how they made the surface not smooth - I wanna see a video of it, if someone can make it, though, to see if it moves different aswell.

    The ball pit looks so much better now glad me and a bunch of other people let them know how horrible it looked.

    It's really telling that EA would release such a terrible looking object to begin with and only improved it after the community as a whole SHAMED them into doing so.

    I didn't shame anybody :D
    I feel like the new one looks a little out of place in the game but I don't mind it either way. :)

    Lol yeah I know. But it looks a LOT better now at least. This is how it should have looked in the first place. I'm glad they fixed it but still kind of appalled at how they actually tried to pass that first one off as saleable.

    Wow that looks much better! Nice to see people give feedback and have it actually change! I'm excited to try it out.

    That's quite the negative spin to put on it.

    Another way to look at it is, people complained and they did something about it, when they could have ignored it. That aspect of it is inarguably a good thing. Nobody does an amazing job in every way all the time, but in improving it, they wordlessly acknowledged their mistake and did a more effective job.


    Anyway, spin aside, I think it looks way better from the screenshots I've seen. Really impressed, didn't know it'd be doable in such a way without hurting performance. Guess I was wrong. This is one of those times when it's nice to be proven wrong. :smile:

    All they had to do was push the product back 2 weeks because one of the main items for the pack wasn't ready. Nah, they were clearly proud of the product they released otherwise why did they release and promote it and show it in the videos, etc. This was the best they could do. It wasn't until the community complained rightfully so that they did something about it. I think that's unfortunate.

    I am glad they have improved that lol. I will buy the SP once my game has toddlers again.
    If they hadnt fixed that, I dont think I would have used the ballpit in my game. :#
