5-0 out of 5 stars Stunning!
Wow, this software is unbelievable! You can completely remodel a room with just a few click of a mouse.

It is easier to do and decide everything while sitting at your computer instead of feeling frustrated during the process. It is quite difficult to come up with exactly your dream house but this software makes it possible quickly and easily. Highly recommended. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars More than I expected
Home Designer Pro 7.0 has a fairly steep learning curve, but is very easy to use afterwards.The reason for the learning curve is the fact that building design is not simple - to get meaningful results, you need to know a lot of specifics.If you get frustrated with any aspect of this program, watch the tutorial for that task!There are many short tutorials rather than a few long ones, so you can target your problem area very quickly.The manual contains the same information as the tutorials.Everything is high quality, except some pops and static in the tutorial soundtrack.And not only can you get detailed building plans (layouts) from this software, you have complete control of the plans' content.I started with an architect who came highly recommended, but realized that I wanted the type of control that this software provides - I saved money, too.Check your local building codes - they may be different from the defaults.

5-0 out of 5 stars So far, does all I need
Upgraded from the non-Pro version.Pro expands on a huge amount of functionality and makes many of the tasks that you could do with the earlier version much simpler.Roof's (my nemesis in the $100 version) are manageable.Dormers are easy.Centering a door on a window on the opposite wall is automated.Defining half-height wainscotting is now do-able.Haven't tried the CAD functions and I'm hoping I won't have to, because it looks like Pro doesn't have much beyond simple shapes, plus being able to read CAD designs from the $1300 version.
4-0 out of 5 stars Does Everything You Want
This program does everthing you could want. You will have to do a LOT of reading to do what you want (IT CAN BE DONE)You can develop blueprints with this program, if you know exactly the products that you will be using in your construction. You have to know alot to show alot. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent software
The engine behind this program is from Chief Architect, who, from what I understand, are developers of professional CAD software. It shows in this program.
1-0 out of 5 stars terrible software
This is the worst software I have ever worked with, everything is difficult and some things are impossible to create.

3-0 out of 5 stars Pros & Cons of BHG Landscape & Deck Designer
All in all This program appears to be the best of what is available for landscaping and deck design.I found it easy to learn and implement except for some roof and elevation problems (which were unable to be resolved adequately).For Californians and many western region locales without gable or hip roofs it can be difficult to design your exact building, but this is the landscape and deck portion and not the entire building program.It does allow you to quickly design most landscape and deck designs possible and the 3D is drawn quickly and the detail is excellent.Trees and plants for many California locales are lacking, but it is possible to use a variety of trees/plants that will give you a good idea of what you are after.I found minor imperfections that were difficult to overcome in elevations but compared to what is available without learning a CAD program this is a bargain for the money paid. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Intuitive commands for basic operations
HD Deluxe uses the same commands for all basic functions as its expensive big brother, Chief Architect.Drawing walls, inserting doors and windows, moving things and adjusting dimensions are all very easy and intuitive.Armed with all the necessary dimensions, virtually anyone can build an unfurnished house in a matter of an hour or two.I had no problem accurately reproducing my existing house the same day I installed the software (without cabinets, wallpaper, and floor covering, etc but which this package can do very well).Then came the fun part -- I was able to investigate multiple remodeling options by moving walls, extending the slab foundation, and adding a second floor to the existing garage -- all in just a matter of minutes.The auto-roof feature adapted to every change and showed me immediately what each idea would look like.This package is wonderful!For the average homeowner, HDD will do everything you need to draw almost any type of home.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great Mid-Level Design Software
A good product for the price.It has trouble with complicated roofs and a few other things, but is easy to use and quite powerful and fun to use.I've spent many hours designing, doing walk-throughs and making adjustments.Sometimes things that look good on the at the blueprint level don't work as well when you get down at eye level to review the layout.If I was planning to skip hiring an architect alltogether, I'd probably go with the next level up in this software, but this level is great for playing 'what it' and as a tool to comunicate with your architect or builder - a little over a hundered dollars for software that could save you thousands in builder change orders.

3-0 out of 5 stars Designer Deluxe
I was expecting the same program with maybe a few updates and tons of new furniture items.What I got was a program with very few updates, some changes that made things harder such as importing textures and tons of new plants.I was not very impressed for the difference in price from Home Designer 6. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Planning your garden
The software was easy and fast to load, and I've enjoyed using the program.I found the garden encyclopedia to be thorough.I would have liked the visual to be a bit larger, but other than that this package worked great for our front and back yard landscape plans, and also for our deck!

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of Money
Software won't install, Tech Support sent an email stating to wash the CD with warm water and let it air dry. This was new software opened for the first time - should have been clean, but I washed it anyway --- Still Wouldn't Install. Tech Support sugested several other fixes by email --- all seemed very technical to me --- I wanted to use the program I bought, not work on it. Save your money, find another program that works right out of the box.

5-0 out of 5 stars Pretty cool stuff
I started with HD platinum and thought it was rewarding as i learned to use the program.In a few hours I had my college house designed right down to my roomate's EXACT computer, and my EXACT bed pattern.Very cool!My landlord loved it, and it's neat how much it looks like it looks in real life.There's still so much more i can do with the program, but after just a few hours I feel like I learned a ton.My roomate used it to design a bar for a school project and the teacher loved it.We both thought it was pretty easy to use and could do exactly what we wanted to do with it.

1-0 out of 5 stars Poor Quality and Outdated Interface
The documentation is sparse and more similar to a dictionary than a user's guide. There are video tutorials (screen recordings) but their simplicity limits their usefulness to the most basic of functions. The interface is typical of a quickly developed spec. If you know your way around a computer, you'll be frustrated within minutes. There are no keyboard shortcuts and the concept of objects and properties is primative at best. For example, when you go to drag a tree onto a landscape, nothing tells you what kind of tree it is. When you roll the mouse pointer over the tree, the ballon help says "Drag" instead of something more helpful like the plant name. Talk about some lazy programming. Little issues like that are so plentiful that you'll be cursing the program in no time. I also made the mistake of purchasing one of their add-on "power tools" called site planner and boy was that a mistake. It crashed whenever I edited or inserted a line. I sent an email to tech support and they replied with a canned email response blaming the video driver. I quickly sent back a response with all the useless details they asked for and I never heard back from them again. Take it from me, they use the term "Power Tool" strictly as a marketing ploy. Their power tools are more like amateur freeware utilities.

1-0 out of 5 stars COMPLEX SOFTWARE WITH NO TUTORIAL!
I am a CAD designer with 15 years experience on several platforms, 2d and 3d. I bought this package several months ago. I thought that with my experience I'd pick it up easily. After many hours I gave up on it. The manual is nothing more than a description on picks and clicks with lots of illustrations. As far as I can determine, no tutorial, either by Punch! or another third party exists and Punch! is unresonsive to my queries. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Slightly Disappointed
My daughter loves this game.However, there are pieces which are blacked off that can not be used.So there would be a large selection of wedding dresses, tiara's, jewerly, cake tops, etc. however you can not use them all and are limited.Also, you can choose your bride, but only one girl ever comes out as the bride no matter who you choose.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not bad overall
I'mpicked up this game for the fun of it. What I found was a 2d game with very simply drawn graphics which is still alot of fun to play. There are alot of games that you have to finish to get better bride's items. I still play it because it is fun to choose wedding stuff, and who doesn't like choosing wedding stuff?

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous
I love this game! It is fun, time-lasting, enjoyable, and certainly fun! You can do anything you want to (to) make your dream wedding. Pick music, pick groom, and decorate your cake! I 100% think you should buy this product. (This is a kid's eye review)

This is something else. Beautifully presented and perfectly matched to music (if you switch it on).

A visual masterpiece.5-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not real User Friendly But Overall Good Starter Software
The software is not like many of the new softwares that allow you to use your Roller on the Mouse and other features like that.But it has a pretty good database of plants and etc.It is somewhat tough to learn if you are not good at learning software applications rather quickly.But once learned it is really nice.Epecially for the money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Save your money
This wasn't very good, limited plant selection, sizing difficulty, very limited application.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great visualization software
Easy to use. Imported a picture of my yard and arranged the plants, saved a lot of labor and money. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars What a waste of time and money.
I purchased the landscape design software recommended on Victory Garden - what a waste of time and money (Staples will not refund software that has been opened).I tried several times to get past the first few basic steps of positioning the house on the lot and after hours of frustration I just gave up and removed the program from my computer.I didn't get anywhere near the "design" step.I use a computer 40+ hours a week at work, so I'm pretty savy, but this program is not user friendly.It focuses way too much on the 3-D glitter and not enough on useful and usable tools for the home landscaper.

1-0 out of 5 stars DON'T EVEN CONSIDER THIS JUNK
I purchased this software because it was the only software I could find to do 3D landscaping.I thought I got a great deal when it was discounted from $54.95 to $6.98, but I found I paid too much.Its not even worth the hard drive space it takes up.The software feezes up frequently, the drawing features are very limited...only lets you draw your yard and home in retangular shapes.Not intuitive at all.Very limited plant encyclopedia.I'm sorry I wasted the postage.

1-0 out of 5 stars Useless without 3D Home Architech
The basis of landscape is to fit it to your house.Unfortunately, if you don't have 3D Home Architech already, you're hosed in having any chance of devolping anything useful that looks like your house.Buyer beware - you need the suite - and there's no warning that 3D Home Architect is needed.And once you've bought this software, you are destined to buy more outdated software to make it useable - so you might as well go for it all with the suite.It has been a long time since I have bought any Broderbund software, and it will be longer yet, as in never! ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Garbage
Do not buy this program!It is a waste of time and money!By the time you figure out how to build a house, create terrain, etc, you will not have any time to landscape.I bought it, and threw it in the trash four days later!
1-0 out of 5 stars NO! Don't do it! It looks too good to be true huh...read below!
Ok so my friend lets me install this program on my computer in hopes that I can teach HER how to use the program. I've been using it for ONE room and it works great! The rendering is amazing as it let's you adjust time of day and such (very cool feature).
1-0 out of 5 stars Looks are deceiving
I got the software as a present.I was happy (For A Bit) until I tried to install it.I started with the DVD version to install, but it froze at 96% complete and allow me to uninstall.I installed the CD version, cool.I tried to use it and created a plan and saved it and could not reopen the plan.I created another and the computer froze up.Everything else would work but the plans would not.I spoke to some other techs and checked my system.My computer exceeded all requirements and I located a patch for the program at the companies site.I thought I was ok.Guess again.Same problems again.I tried to uninstall the program but received errors stating missing install logs.The only way to get it off my computer was to do a full system restore.Needless to say I Am Upset.This product is not worth any price they put on it
