Slime terrariums

An idea from a friend and I based on the expansion areas on the farm. What if you're able to unlock specific, purchasable makeovers for these areas to fit the slimes you want to inhabit them. Almost like terrariums for those slimes/largos in particular.

Examples would be: You could buy a makeover for the grotto to make it have pools of water, in the upper and lower sections for water slimes to float around in. Maybe the makeover could even partially redesign how the cave looks. Getting rid of the wooden platform up for a flowing creak down into the lower area and have maybe at the very top a waterfall that's flowing all the water in.

Maybe turn the overgrowth into a permanent-night sky area. Something above the entirety of it that keeps it dark like the solar shield. Some more trees and maybe glowing lanterns for a phosphor slime-like vibe.

Fire slime terrariums could have it be outfitted to look like a mini volcano. Lava spewing from the top and large pools of lava and mini streams spreading throughout so they can get around.

Each expansion area could have its own unique take fitted to it for each terrarium style. So the overgrowth makeover would look different than the grotto would. The deck could feature something like a mini water-park for water slimes. Etc.

I just think it'd be a really fun idea to have corrals or even areas that the slimes can free roam in that feel more like a 'home' rather than cooped in a corral. The expansions are nice as they are but to be able to outfit them more to the slimes that inhabit them would be a nice option!

Interesting ideas... interesting ideas. Two questions though.
One: would you be able to put slimes that aren't the type the terrarium was built for in there?
Two: how would you buy/activate the terrariums?


If it were me, I would just make everything a volcano and fill them with tabby slimes.
If you think I am a tabby slime,
You are wrong.
I was eaten by one.

I can't get out of here...

Although, if I take out enough newbucks, I can fill this Tabby and turn it to a Lucky.

I must agree it's an idea to where it will give a full range of customization for an expansion.

It might be a bit too much.

It'd be silly to restrict what slimes you could put in there! So any slime could go into any terrarium.

2) Same place you bought the expansion in the first place! Go up to that console thing that now kind of sits there not doing anything and you can choose whichever terrarium you want. For difficulty it could be each time you go to change it you have to 'repurchase' or once bought it can just be switched at will. Either or, honestly.

Probably lol, but I thought it'd be a nice idea to share for a potential possibility, anyway!
