    @Karababy52 , I <3 <3 <3 what you did with your challenge entry! The architecture hits all the right notes of postmodern whimsy, and the interior does as well. You should be proud, too!

    Thank you so much, made me smile! :) I haven't had a chance to check out any of my fellow competitors' build slideshows until now. I think you did a wonderful job with your entry too! I love what you did with the roof and can see that perhaps you were inspired/influenced by Vanna Venturi and Phillip Johnson. I also just noticed you used an arrow pointing to the 'throne' too. hehe Opps! Sorry about that, didn't know I'd copied you. o.O Anyway, thanks again and Good luck! <3
    @Karababy52 what an interesting build. I really love it. <3 :)

    Thank you too, I'm so glad you love it, had a blast with this round. I love your build too, the pool and sunken living area is gorgeous! I really wish I had Get Together, I've been salivating over all the fabulous build objects in that pack! Gah! One day... ;) Thanks again and Good luck to you too and everyone else. :) <3

    I was indeed inspired by Phillip Johnson! And I'm glad that I am not your direct competitor in this challenge [we're in different skill categories], because I would definitely award you first place, hands down, over my entry! :)

    #37 - The Play is the Thing

    Music played cheerfully in the background. Uniformed caterers maneuvered through the well dressed crowd, offering drinks and canapés. And in the background, the beauty of antiques and the luxury of high quality décor. You know this for a fact, since you're the one who designed, built and furnished the apartment. As you move amongst the other guests, you hear many gratifying compliments.

    "Everyone loves the work you've done here," says a deep masculine voice to your left. You turn and smile at the owner of the apartment, Douglas Curtis the third. Adventurer, architect, and egotist.

    "Thank you," You say with a smile, preparing yourself for some grandstanding. "How was your most recent trip abroad?"

    "Wonderful! In fact, being abroad gave me an idea that I wanted to talk to you about." He takes your arm and guides you outside to talk about it without being overheard. He looks around conspiratorially and smiles, "I don't want anyone to hear what I'm about to suggest."

    "I wont say anything," You assure him.

    "I know I can count on you." He takes a long drink from his glass, "I was in France recently, and while I was there I attended a play. Good one too. Ghosts, revenge, violence and all that. But I was really impressed with the playhouse. It was in a historic playhouse. Balconies, fancy wall decorations, etc. It occurred to me that my home town didn't have something like that. So that's what I want you to do. Set it up so there can be shows and plays and concerts in a historic, fancy type of play house so we get some good acts in. And of course, with spots to display some of my larger finds."

    You tilt your head, "That sounds...great! Whats my budget?"

    "Hows 175K? Will that work?"

    "Should be fine. Two Weeks?" You suggest, already making notes in your head.

    "Fabulous!" He says with his usual boisterousness. "Now that business is out of the way, how is that darling Rose?"

    "Ah...you know, I should probably go...get started...."

    Requirements:

    20x30 lot

    175,000 budget (to include the lot cost)

    Historic look

    Landscaping

    Public facility requirements, like bathrooms, etc...

    Sim Challenge: Create Douglas Curtis III, his aspiration is to be a mansion baron and one of his traits is romantic, the rest is up to you.

    Room Challenge: No room challenge this time around, as it is a playhouse.

    @BuildnShare, I spent the whole day yesterday building my build, but every time I save it to my library, it gives another creator. I have tried bulldozing lot and build but nothing seems to work. I have built this from scratch, I don't know what else to do. :'( :'(
  • rosemowrosemow Posts: 147,800 Member
    Hello @Issabella14
    Other simmers have been having the same issue. This link on the AHQ EA thread refers to the issue.
    http://answers.ea.com/t5/The-Sims-4-Bug-Reports/OPEN-Wrong-Creators-name-in-the-gallery/m-p/4524122#M12540
    Try saving the rooms of your build to your library. Then start a new save game file, and place the rooms from your library onto a new lot, and rebuild your build that way. Before placing the rooms on the lot, bulldoze the lot, then save the lot to your library. Check that it doesn't have an original creator by any other simmer. Then place the empty lot back on the lot. Then place the rooms onto the lot. Then save your build to your library.

    Sorry for posting on your thread BuildnShare.
