Dreamsquid's Ultimate Object Pack Wishlist

So this is going to be a really long post. I try to make my zoos as realistic-looking as possible, and i believe in paying attention to the details. So here is my crazy Wishlist of lots of random objects that would add realism to our zoos. Also I believe that there can never be too many building sets so I have some ideas for things that would make cool sets too.
I have also added some photos to help illustrate what I'm talking about.

Building sets:

I have a bike rack already done. I've been trying forever to get wheelchairs into the game, but the only models I have found aren't that great. One has way too many verticals and crashes the game :(

@Feral, your poster pack has been awesome for my entrances and offices and whatnot. Thanks for the heads up about the bike racks!

I agree with this 100%
I also love realism in my zoos, or at least try to get it. But I'd also like to see more things for the animal enclosures like more ropes, poles, and nest boxes! We also need things in pools, and better boomer balls for the animals. They also need some raised platforms that they can actually use.

Agree with most of these! especially desperately keen for zoo keeper objects rakes/shovels/wheelbarrows/hoses/brooms/foot baths

We have a gazillion beautiful animals, but we need more objects (and more object filters since we have so many lol!)

@xirapha- exactly! We need more stuff to make nice exhibits for all the beautiful animals! And filters would be so amazing.

@Sophie- oh man, I'm so excited! Everything you make is stunning.

I want to add those little retractable rope things that go in places where you need to line up, like at the ticket counter, or in gift shops and food courts. I have no idea what they are called but here's a picture

I’d love a variety of small planters, that could be placed on desks, tables, some larger ones for the floor and some common indoor plants that came in the pots or could be placing in them. Like philodendrons, dracenas, stuff like that to decorate indoor spaces.

There are a lot of these items at the Warehouse FYI. Office items, awnings, and a fancier version of the line ropes. ;)

@reptileink. It’s funny you say that, I actually just found the warehouse last night! I’m gonna do some downloading this evening when I get to my computer. Thank you!

You can create the planters using Zeta Designs building sets. Just use the smallest solid wall piece. That is what I do sometimes.
