    only thing that could be is the wall coverings or landscape paints
    ===============
    Ive just gone in game to check and the only item is the reception desk.
    if you dont have the world IP . its not a problem you can MOO one by using counters and other items.

    Hi Calmorezoo! Good to see you again on the site. I did buy sims 4 base game half price...anyway, still LOVE Sims 3!!

    I may give a whirl at the motel 'lesser' resort, sounds like a lot of fun!

    Questions:

    I've never actually used the game mechanics to run a resort. Besides an official IP front desk, do resorts need to have a rabbit hole for this contest? Should it have playability as a resort or just the look? I think front desk and buried rabbit hole is all that is required for resort playability. I'd rather not test that part, but if you request it I'll try! Is the rule of thumb that you see rooms in each cubby that your shell has? Either bedrooms or other? When I see the shell (downloading now), I'll probably get it :) (Now I'm wondering if buffet tables that match the 'star level' are automatic in a resort or if I need to place them?) I do have IP, and the resort part is just one more of the many things I haven't yet tried in Sims 3.

    Next question topic:

    I always test routing in my builds which have primarily only been residential. Can the motel PURPOSELY have a couple routing issues in some guest rooms, done to "flesh out" what an icky place it would be to stay? (e.g. dirty laundry on the floor) I can take care to allow routing and sims won't even know it's a dive LOL. But for looking upon, I think some askew-ness would be apropos. Making a not pretty lot is the appeal of this contest for me :)

    Your contests are great and I've been lurking a long time. (oiswise, my 'better half', had a ball with her fairy museum and park!!)
  • sharonxyzsharonxyz Posts: 811 Member
    Yikes, I'm too chatty this morning, sorry :)

    Back to the routing 'issue' part: what I also mean is if not every chair snaps to slot which causes complaints of course from our little Sims, is that okay? As long as there is somewhere they can read, they will find it I think... and is some "green air" too much? I've never purposely caused the Disgusted moodlet and want to very much!! LOL
  • anettesbanettesb Posts: 39,166 Member
    @sharonxyz
    I can ansvere some of your questions.
    yes for a lot to work as a resort all it needs is a resort rabithole and the front desk - if this is needed here to take part I don't know... I gues not or you would need IP to take part.
    the resort buffet tables you need to set, the resort gets stars depending on what items and what level of service you offer. even some of the deco will give you plusses in the way to becoming a resort.

    hello all,
    Id just like to say that if you Dont have IP and still wish to take part I can add the needed items myself. just leave a two row of 4 space in the entrance hall and a good size either basement or on the grounds, so i can place the resort RH .Not having this will not effect your scores.
    Just add no IP to your entry form.

    Happy creating everyone

    nice to see you intrested in my little shell comp
    Now to answer some of you questions

    If you dont have IP dont worry I can add whats needed.

    Routing issues well I dont mind those using the cheat Moo.so i supose some very minnor ones will be ok.
    But i dont want things like stairs not working as they should and doorways or arches.

    I to was jaw dropped at the amount of work and creativity Oiswise put into the art gallery for my previous comp.

    Have fun and good luck

    (will also post on Q&A)

    This sounds like an interesting competition, but I'm a little confused. Are the o:) and >:) supposed to be the decorating themes or the experience for the sims visiting?

    I think a game crash where you lose a couple hours work is a terrific time to check in and ask questions, so here I am! I've never done a resort before, but what is happening with the lot is truly odd, maybe a known glitch? The rabbit hole is all set and you (Calmorezoo I mean) gave us a front desk set in a room on the lot. When I try to go to Edit Town to save my work, the game always says I must have a bellhopper front desk to keep my lot a resort. Well it has a front desk which does not seem to be recognized as such by the AI. So I delete that one and buy a new one and this is unprecedented for me: with MOO on, I am not able to place a resort front desk anywhere on the lot. In fact, it stays translucent and won't totally appear. I tried a couple times, quit, cleaned caches, rebooted, same thing kept happening. It's a VERY stubborn desk! My theory, for whatever it may be worth is that while the game would not acknowledge the original desk, it still thinks there is one and more than one front desk is surely a crime against sim nature.

    So, I will leave my finished basement (although upon uploading I wouldn't be surprised if it stole the rabbit hole. If so, it's set up for easy fitting of the "two cottage" beach rabbit hole.

    I think I will put in a few counters that you can replace with the front desk which is all I think I can do. By the way, it won't let me set up the resort kiosk for food either (so I can use Seasons kiosk).

    If there is a fix maybe a kind person will let me know; if not I'll do as stated. Besides that glitch and a crash, it is a fun project. The lot type reverts always to "No Visitors Allowed"; I'll try a more friendly replacement such as "Visitors Allowed" or "Hang Out", but it may revert due to the rabbit hole for a resort.

    Back to it!! :D
