    Sim details: Jesus Wu is a formidable detective with many friends and informants. With his skills, he finally finds out who robbed the Sim of America Bank--you guessed it--Mara Sloane and her goons! Jesus was awarded detective of the year for this major accomplishment, but being a naturally humble guy, he skipped the ceremony and played many rounds of Blicblock to ease his nerves. Besides being a bodybuilder and a bro, Jesus is very ambitious and a romantic at heart.

    Hi! My friend bought me the Sims 4 for my birthday, and I was wondering... I already put in a submission for this challenge in Sims 3. Am I able to do this challenge for Sims 4 or do I need to wait for the next one?

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: http://s97.photobucket.com/user/iampes23/slideshow/sims 4 7
    ENTRY DETAILS: A modern style home with eclectic decor inside. This house features minimal landscaping since Mr. Wu travels often for his work.

The second floor is devoted to Mr. Wu's bedroom, dressing room, and bath. It also features a small balcony for meditation and watching neighbors.

    SIM ENTRY SLIDESHOW: http://s97.photobucket.com/user/iampes23/slideshow/Sims 4 Wu
    ENTRY DETAILS: Mr. Jesus Wu wants to be a secret agent, but for now he is a private detective for hire. He is also a body builder. He is self-assured, a Bro, and active. He is also lucky enough to have a high metabolism to burn off all the calories! He is so confident, he finds himself in denial any time a woman turns him down. But he also comes from a wealthy background, so he has the finest life can offer. He modeled in his younger years.

    *I may figure this out on my own, but it never hurts to ask. :D The first time I played Sims 4, I did see the options for different sized walls, but it has gone away. Anyone have any idea what I might have done to make it disappear or how I can get them back?

    **This was a bit of a rush job, and obviously I need more practice taking pictures with my new game. Thanks for being patient!

    Hi Guys, logistics are conspiring against me again, so here's challenge #8 for your delectation. Don't worry though, challenge #7 is still open until midnight CMT for those last minute entries :)


    Challenge #8 - A Very Merry Christmas

    You sit at your desk looking at your holiday to do list, when Rose pokes her head in the door. Perplexed she says, "Your four o'clock is here." "Send them on in", you reply. She hands you a packet that smells faintly of vanilla and spices. Rose states,"This was dropped off about an hour ago with a note saying it was your four o'clock appointment!"
    You open the packet with some apprehension to find a letter written on beautiful stationary and another piece of paper. You read that letter without uttering a single word. Rose jumps up to read the letter over your shoulder. This is what you both see and read.
    Dear Esteemed Builder,
    The Sunset Valley Homeless Shelter has found homes for all of it's residences this holiday season but one family, the Lines Family. They have just had to relocate to Oasis Springs after the loss of Mrs Lines, she seemed to decide that after 14 years, family life just wasn’t for her. Don’t worry, she’s on our naughty list! We have a property suited to the family but we would like you to ‘flip’ it to suit Mr. Lines and his three sons. Please find enclose all the specific details to help facilitate a new home for this family. We look forward to seeing what you develop for this specific request.
    Happiest Holiday Wishes,
    Mr. and Mrs. S.C.
    You quickly grab the other piece of paper and quickly scan over the requirements. The job was very feasible and it would be nice to do something so meaningful this time of year. Rose asks with a sniff,"Are we doing this job?" You reply, "Yes, we definitely are!" Rose sniffs even harder as she heads for the door and states," I will start the paperwork!"

    The Challenge
    Build Mr. Arthur Lines and his three sons a new home for the holidays.
    Budget: $70,000 total for the lot (The total cost of the lot in game is currently just under $65,000)

    Ooh, I like challenge 8. I might give this a try! Question, if we complete the primary challenge as well as the room challenge, does the room have to be in the final build? Sorry if that's a weird question lol.

    @SimChelle1982 - Not a weird question at all! You can enter the room challenge separately, it does not have to be in your final build. The only thing we ask is that you make it available for download ;)

    Does this include changing the paint/siding? Or does it just mean we can't move/build new exterior walls?

    So you want the grid lines turned ON? You've been telling me to turn them off--so I'm confused. :smile:

    Congrats to all the winners for previous rounds recently announced! I'm loving all the entries for the current round so far too. I've been busy offline with Thanksgiving/Vacation/Hunting season stuff, so haven't had time to do much in my game. However, I did manage to build a little lot from house plans, something I've never done before. Turned out pretty good I think.

    Anyway, I am loving the sounds of this newest challenge, seems very doable, and am going to try my darnedest to sneak in a build for it along with my preparations for Christmas. Good luck everyone, have a great rest of your week! :)

    Yes I think this challenge is a good one for this time of year. I'm sure lots of us are pretty busy around the holidays. By the way, I love all the entries I've seen for challenge 7. So much diversity in just the exteriors this time. Great job every one.

    Ooh, I love working with existing builds. Sure gonna enter this one. I had been really busy with real life so I could not enter the previous two, but my holiday is starting at the right time for this one! First finishing off my other new build I have been working on for some time now. Expect some splashing fun, though it can be frozen this time of year.

    You can change the siding, you just can't add move/build new exterior walls.

    So you want the grid lines turned ON? You've been telling me to turn them off--so I'm confused. :smile:
    Sorry to confuse you, all we want is one overhead shot of the whole plan with gridlines on, this is just to check that no changes that aren't allowed have been made. The rest of your shots should be without gridlines ;) Hope that clarifies things ;)

    can i move/delete/add fencing on the outside?

    edit: one more question. When changing windows, am i allowed to change a two-square window to two single-square windows next to each other? or does it need to be changed to another two-square window?

    Can we put a new roof/trim of our own design/color on the house and also put a foundation underneath it if we wish?

    I think the trim would be no problem, but the foundation is. The point of this challenge is to use the house as it is and refurbish it, like you can do in real life. So only non-structural changes are allowed?
