    @Lebanna - I'm confused over costings too, have just added up my walk in closet individually and it comes to just under 8k, but in the room upload section, it's over 10k! Bizarre :confused:

    Glad I'm not the only one XD

    I just placed the lot in managed world again. Without a Sim.
    Costs says: 160k something.
    I add a sim with the free real estate cheat. Give her exactly 95,000 after she has moved in.
    Place the rooms I created again.
    she still has 3k left (YAAY!)

    I look at property value in the top bar. 155k? How did it decrease!?

    Uploaded to the library it says 249,792. Which is just within budget, so that's alright.
    But I'm confused why it says it's only 155k in build mode.

    Oh well. Gallery says I'm within budget.

    Okay, question, Do we get to use all floors for this one person? She is buying the entire build?

    Oh, and it says the shell of the apartment uses only the base game, but can we use all the expansions inside??

    @smashleec , the challenge to is to turn the unoccupied space on the top-most floor of the apartment building into a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, meeting all the requirements of the challenge. The apartment building was built with base game materials so that anyone can download the lot and enter the challenge. You may use whatever expansion packs, game packs, stuff packs and custom content you choose. (If you use custom content, be sure to credit the makers on the entry form.) We are looking forward to seeing what you can come up with! :smiley:

    The sims gallery was acting a little crazy so while I was waiting for it to stop being crazy I decided to make Ute Wagner!!

    SIM: h t t p s : //www.thesims.com/en_GB/gallery/FCBEF06D267311E6817152EB898A7C17?category=all&searchtype=hashtag&sortby=downloads&time=all&searchquery=BnS45&max=50&maxis=false

    SIM ENTRY SLIDESHOW: I am not sure how to make a slideshow? If someone could tell me how??

    ENTRY DETAILS: Ute is very ambitious and enjoys being in the inner circle of the coolest sims. She has worked very hard for her money so she loves the finer things in life and enjoys spending her Simoleans! She has also worked to keep her supermodel body so she enjoys showing it off in tight/short clothing.

    @smashleec , your version of Ute Wagner is great! To create a slideshow, you might want to take pictures of her in her various outfits in Create-a-Sim and then more images of her enjoying her new apartment. Upload the images to an album at a site like Imgur, Photobucket or Tinypics and then link the slideshow of the album in your entry. Hope this helps! :smile:

    Wow!!!! So I had the lot all made and I took screenshots and uploaded them and THEN MY GAME CRASHED. I didn't get to save my entry!!!!! So, I might try to make a new entry for this challenge, but I think I might just wait till the next challenge. I still want you guys to take a look at my entry though and I would love and tips or constructive criticism based on what you can see in the pics. There was also a 2nd bedroom with an ensuite bathroom but I didn't get to take pictures. I made a very long dining table so that Ute could have big parties :)

    Hi @BuildnShare , am I right to say that the exterior of the apartment can't be touched at all? Even repainted? It has to be left just as it is? And no landscaping can be changed?

    Also, do I need to keep the griund floor gym and pool intact or can i change or delete it?

    Sorry about all the questions:)

    You are correct, @popettypop2012 , the exterior. landscaping and common areas should be left unchanged. The challenge is to design the apartment space on the top floor, and your entry should showcase the interior of the apartment (as well as the two balconies) and not the rest of the building or landscaping. :smiley:

    I'm decorating the apartment at the moment and didn't realise how BIG it is. After fitting in all the necessary stuff there is still so much space and my budget is less than half.

    I had the same thing! Though I saved every room to the library, and placed those on the top floor :D

    @Lebanna same issue, what i do is after making the screenshots naming them and put them a new folder and when i upload them to photobucket sort by filename and click on the 1st picture and give them all the same titles as in my folder.
