Wording is backwards when you rotate the heart
Of course, a staff member would be able to give you the correct answer, But this may not be a bug. Many items in the game, both original items from VMK and new for MyVMK, are simply flipped to appear as rotated. This makes it easier for the designers as they simply don't have to make as many drawings of the same item. Usually this doesn't appear as a problem. But some items, especially ones with words, are much more noticeable.
Then, hopefully, this could be fixed relatively easily.
FIX THIS PLEASE!!
This really isn't a bug... just how VMK "traditionally" handled rotations. It can be "fixed" but the designer would have to remake an entirely new image with the new angle and text-rotated by hand.
In VMK most furniture only had 2 images made, the front side of the item (90 degrees... think the angle that shows up in your inventory) and back side (0 degrees). They then just flipped that image to create the other 180 and 270 angle. It had less to do with easiness and more to do with the fact that the game was made in 2005 and any method of reducing the file size and saving space was prioritized. (shoutout to people who played VMK using dialup!!) Obviously these days that's less of a problem but it's worth knowing how the game works lol. You can see the same things on a lot of other items.
