ATTENDANCE:
Attendance is highly recommended but not mandatory as you could view the thread after the class is over. However, the attractive idea here is that you will be doing a step-by-step build with other students and with a teacher available as you build to answer your questions and to give advice if needed.

REGISTRATION:
Registration is not required, but would be very helpful so that I can gauge interest in this project and have an idea of my class size before I start the class. No obligation is incurred by registering and you may register and attend the first class without continuing through the entire course.


First Course: "Building a Farm" is available in three lessons as an online self-paced tutorial. See links below.

Lesson Number 1, "Building the Barn" is available here:
http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/30/487894.page#7440794

Lesson Number 2, "Building the Farmhouse" is available here:
http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/30/489324.page#7487905

Lesson Number 3, "Finishing the Farm" is available here:

    Zoo U students, after registration, please do the following (some things are marked optional, but if it is not marked that way, I will assume that you will do it before next Saturday's lesson).


    1. Bookmark this thread so that you can find us for the next lesson. This is where the class will be taking place.

    2. If you have not accepted a friend request from me, please consider doing that. (this step is optional)

    3. IMPORTANT: The class may involve moving back and forth between this thread and your game. You will be posting questions and comments as well as seeing the photo and description of the build step you are supposed to be doing. It is important that you can have the forum opened to this thread but minimized as you build and have your game open but minimized as you come here to post. Please try this out before next week by minimizing this window right now, opening up your game and starting a new game, saving your game and hitting the "windows" key on your keyboard (if you have a Mac, kindly scroll down to post four and my friend Wibble will tell you how to do this!) and posting something in this thread (like "Testing that I can post while my game is open") and then going back into your game to make sure all is running well. This all works fine on MY computer, but everyone's machine is different and you don't want any unpleasant surprises next week.

    4. I am going to be adding some links to useful threads I'm making for students in Zoo U. It is optional that you do any of those, but they will help you have a smoother time as a builder. I would at least go look at what has been posted, but even that is not required. (This step is optional)

    Here is a link to a thread about Tester Families:
    http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/486961.page

    Here is the Exchange link for my favorite Tester Sim if you don't want to make your own:
    http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=5018210

    Here is a link to a thread about making a Builder's Blank Neighborhood:

    How to move back and forth between the game and the browser, Mac Users.

    *For this to work easily, make sure that the only applications working are your game and your browser, with the Zoo U page showing.*

    While running your game, press the cmd (⌘) and Tab keys simultaneously. This should immediately close the game and open your browser, selecting it as the active window.

    To return to the game, either simply click on the Game icon in the Dock, or press the cmd (⌘) and Tab keys again, to scroll through the list of open applications.

    If you have any other Mac queries, please send me a friend request and leave me a comment on my page. I'll do my best to answer!

    --Wibble


    Thanks, Wib, for the Mac info!

    I'm 9 hours ahead of PST, so the class will be a bit late for me but I'll definitely be having a look afterwards. I'm using CFE on the build I'm doing at the moment and it will be interesting to learn more.

    Register me.

    I probably won't be on until 11:00 PM est time but I will try. As of now CFE just scares me hopefully this will change that.

    I'm a busy mom of two young children who don't go to bed until 8:30/9:00pm, so I won't be able to attend this one live, but I'll definitely be checking it out later in the evening. I've done some CFE work but still feel like I'm on a learning curve with it, and I am eager to become more proficient. Thanks for hosting these, Zoo! :)

    ok! I'd like to register and will not be on vacation when this one happens! *bookmarks thread*

    Does it matter that I still haven't built my farmhouse? or...really played my game recently?
    :oops:

    I'll register you anyway since you can view the lesson online later. Welcome to Zoo U!

    :oops:

    Nope, it doesn't matter at all! This course is totally independent of the first one. You can do them in any order or only ever do one and not the other.

    What is WITH the Forum tonight? Every single post is a double post for some reason. I was able to edit the second post into something useful until this one. :oops:

    That would be 10pm EST, right? I would love to do this one, but 10pm on a Sunday is too late for me! (I have to get up at 5am the next day) But I'll check into the finished class!
