    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:

    This course is still a few weeks away, but I wanted to get the thread up and let people register.

    Our teacher, SimEve, is a MASTER of using the Fog Emitter in her builds. She uses this unique tool in ways that you would never imagine and creates some really amazing effects with it.

    REGISTER NOW!!

    No need to be nervous! I know it is going to be great, but even if you were to make a mistake it is NOT life and death. You wouldn't be the first person to make an error in one of these classes. We fixed it and moved on and no one was at all upset.

    If you have any notes for your students, particularly anything that you would like for us to do before the day of the course, then please e-mail them to me and I will put them into the spot that I reserved for "Notes from Your Teacher."

    Thank you so much for being willing to do this course! It is a lot of work and I really appreciate it!

    Hi, P-pup! Glad to see you back and consider yourself registered! You are getting to be quite the builder! What with taking these building classes and the really impressive entry into the Supernatural Building Contest, I'm pretty proud of you, young lady!

    I hope this doesn't mean that you soon will find that you don't need your friends at D.N.A. to build you stuff!

    Hiya Zoo! I will always need my friends at DNA. And oh my gosh! Have you seen some of the builds they have been putting out over there? Yes, I will request another build sometime in the future, but right now, I just grab all the requests they do!!! :D


    Oh, thank you for the kind comment about my entry in the Supernatural Contest. It was a modest attempt compared to the others, but hey, it was my first, and I wasn't embarrassed by it. I'm using it, so I'm happy! :D

    Sometimes in class I completely forget what I was about to say. I will stop and say, "You know what, I don't want to tell you that yet because it will confuse you."

    Students looked at me with big eyes like "Yes, Wise One!"

    LOL! I don't think I could get away with that in a subject other than math. 8)
