Quick point on the "stop developing the same items". 

 

The time from idea to actually being released can be a long time - 6 weeks is probably a minimum and some developers might be working on the same kinds of things and quite a way through the production process when another dev actually releases theirs.

 

As you can see with the wings, three devs had the same idea and it's just the way it is unfortunatley. For us, we were already working on MiniMotors when Granzella released theirs.

 

One thing it does do is give those who don't buy on Day One a choice. If there are similar items from different developers they won't all be exactly the same in terms of design or price.

This is completely understandable.

 

However, in my opinion, all of these types of items in general need to be put on pause for a while. It feels like every week a ton of new bikes, motorcycles, minibikes, wings, flying devices, skateboards, hoverboards, running animation, etc, etc, etc are released by several different developers.

 

To me, this is getting a little much. I get that their new, cool, and money makers, but jeez. Am I the only one who feels this way?
