Ok, but the same argument could be made for a lot of things. The game doesn't sell my version of this chair. The game doesn't sell this hat I made, why can't I put it on my head and submit it?
My suggestion to 4-Lom - maybe submit the door as furniture to [email protected]
. I think it's a cool idea and as much as I'd like to let people do the thing he did, it opens the door for people to create entirely custom furniture sets using statues.
I've tried to make waterfalls, windows, doors, chimneys, and tons of other objects that are simply not provided. There are objects released in-game that are not made into buyable furniture every year.
The catch here, is that a door being used as a shield is a silly thing to be disallowing. There's no in-game advantage to it's use. There's nothing but cosmetic use on a statue, possibly misdirecting (?) a player in a house layout. There are hundreds (if not thousands) of 'stalls' and other buildings and structures that are clearly objects of furniture that have been uploaded and are currently used in game, both including objects with in-game graphics and without.
I've used the colors in this particular example from the in-game door but otherwise made it from scratch. Why is it any different from making a noodle stand (robtakoyaki-shield.png), a small store (mikemart-shield.png), or any of countless codeshop shields that are used in the same manner?
Alternatively, if I upload a portion of the image in one shield, making it only a portion of the graphic, then upload a second shield with a second portion of the graphic... it just gets ridiculous so quickly to think of placing 4-5 statues with stray pixels to make a single image.
not offered buying doors...
There was a door. Limited time only, boarded up door from halloween. It was 1500g and meh iirc.
