AWI has generated some amazing updates to its programs over the past year, starting with version 5.1 and now at version 6.0. While they were doing these updates, a number of folks expressed ideas on that would be good to see -- a sort of 'wish list'. Now, what better time to ask for things than Christmas, and who better to ask? Santa of course... Here are some letters to Santa from builders.

Dear Santa
I would like to be able to put new models and textures into Yellow. The yards are very good, but more house textures and AVs would be really helpful.

Dear Santa
The Avs in Yellow are really neat, but I would love to be able to dress them up. I would like costume textures to put on the AVs.

Dear Santa
I love building. It's a lot of fun. But I need help and the school is not staffed very well. Is there a way to make sure that help is more available?

Dear Santa
When AWI launched Version 6.0, a lot of the really good clothes, hair styles and other stuff for CAVs disappeared. And for the ladies, why were so many clothing and hair options removed from the CAV engine? We've been waiting for these for over a year. And could you also add a trench coat?

Dear Santa
I heard that there is going to be an AW shop where we can buy stuff for our CAVs and AVs. When will this be available for us?

Dear Bearded Fat guy
When the forums closed down I lost contact with many of my friends. Can you ask AWI to put them back up please? I know sometimes they were a pain, but the value overall was far greater. And Hippy New Year to you all.

In this issue:

Winter Party! At the Sleepy Bear Playhouse in Old Winter Mountain, Wednesday, December 12, starting at 9pm. Coords: 47.727S 1616.151E -0.00a 84.1. If you miss the party on Dec 12, the Playhouse is open 24/7. You are welcome to come and hold your own parties.

In the Build of the Month we feature Old Winter Mountain. While this featured a few issues ago, we're revisiting it to show off more of this build. It's interactive with lots of games, movers, and a dance hall where music is always happening.

Building Tips begins with a review of what this page has offered for 2012, looking at various ways you can use a set of commands to completely change an object to your liking. We also include some tips on combining objects to create a third (courtesy of Apooka), and finally a warning about using high polygonal objets.

Caterer Joe and his team offer up some interesting dishes, including one from Morocco that is sure to get your tastebuds working overtime.

We hope that Fuzzy will be back on the job as a main reporter for the YG. See his story for details.

And after a long break, Nellie's Garden page returns with new textures and plants for your collection. Be sure to visit!

And the Winners are:

Dear readers

Our condolences to the family and friends of Capaboo who has passed on recently. There is a memorial site for her at AW 10000.43N 18784.84E 0.08a 88. Please stop in and leave a card or small build to show your support to her family and friends. Her husband will be viewing the site in a few weeks.

Stop Press! There will be a big Winter party at the Sleepy Bear Playhouse in the Old Man Winter site. Keep the 12th of December open in your diaries! See the details in this issue.

Nellie & Mr Crabtree
Nellie and Mr Crabtree

It was good to know that Mr Crabtree has recovered from his recent illness, and he and Ms Nellie are offering another garden page for your interest. We wish them well, and I hope Mr Crabtree is hale and hearty.

I have been told that young Randy has taken up a scholarship at Yellowstone University and will be leaving his work as a 'gofurr' for the Yellow Gazette. How sad he is leaving us; he was a nice young cub with lots of potential. And let it be known that I am a genuine bear, and not a cougar, as some have been led to believe...

With Mr Crabtree's return, he has taken on an apprentice, a Mr Ferdinand Snaggletooth. While I'm sure he will be an asset to Mr Crabtree, he certainly is not one of mine! I rather hope he concentrates more on the gardens and less hanging around my office. I really am far too mature for the likes of him.
