Hi, Everyone! Welcome to Zoo U!

ZOO U MASTER THREAD (this thread will contain all links to Zoo U courses and bookmarking this thread will allow you to always find us)
http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/499348.page

Course 3: Roofing 101
Description: This course is intended for beginning builders.
Lesson 1: Roof Basics
Lesson 2: Porch Roofs and Victorian Roofing
Roof Help: This thread will be monitored on an ongoing basis so post your roofing questions here!


Guest Lecturer: Ruthless_KK


Lesson 1: Roof Basics can be found here:

http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/45/527220.page#8368990

Lesson 2: Porch Roofs and Victorian Roofing can be found here:

http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/105/527220.page#8432633

Roofing Questions Answered:

Post your questions at the end of this thread!


IN THIS THREAD:
POST ONE: Course Description
POST TWO: Information for Zoo U Students
POST THREE: Class Roster for Each Lesson of This Course
POST FOUR: Previous Zoo U Courses with Lesson Links





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.

    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 the next 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:

    Done! Welcome back to Zoo U, Alley!

    And not to fret, you can find all of the Zoo U lessons you've missed and take them in your own time and at your own pace. If you will look in post one of this thread you'll find the link for the Zoo U Master Thread. I am adding links to all lessons to that thread, so if you bookmark it, you can always find us!

    Done, and Welcome to Zoo U!

    Don't worry about not being at the "live" presentation. You can still do the lesson later. The best thing about being there live is that there will be someone to answer your questions, but if you are doing the lesson on your own later, you can still post any questions in this thread and then someone will answer them later on.

    Beaglelover2008, the great thing here is that the class will be waiting for you when you can get to it! Doing the class "live" is fun and gives you a chance to ask the professor a question, but the classes are all intended to be left up to allow students to do the work at their own pace at some future date.

    Welcome to Zoo U! I will put you on our class roster!
