    I discovered a neat-o trick that can help my fellow challengers on photo shoots of their builds.

    While I was playing my legacy sim (separated from my Designer Sim), I was testing to see if I could use a button to switch between sims. The test failed but it also succeeded in finding the best way to get photo shoots. Soon as I realized this, I had to test it out. So here is how it is done!
    • Be in Live Mode (have not tested this in Build Mode) and get your camera into a spot that you think will give the best view of the room or object you are shooting.
    • Have the Walls Up to better display the room
    • Click the Tab button! Suddenly you can swing the camera around in just that one spot. Once you have just the right angle, take the photo and click Tab again to have free moving camera.
    I plan on using this on my next build, since I have already entered my post.

    I'm so glad to see this up and running in The Sims 4! I haven't played in a Build-N-Share since pretty early in The Sims 3, but I'd love to jump back in and start from the beginning here. Gotta go plan my build now! Hehehe!

    Entry Details: This home office is set on a 30x20 lot. It is a two story building that features an open style garage. The main floor is where you will find the office of Liberty Design Company. It features the reception/waiting room, a restroom, and the main office behind a glass wall. The second floor is J.J. Knight's open floor plan apartment. It features a kitchen and eating area, a living room, bedroom, and master bathroom. There are two accessible balconies both in the front and the rear of the house. I gave this build a very modern look as Knight specializes in modern design. I'm probably in the beginner tier of building as i don't know to many secrets.

    Question: Is it the midnight before or after Wednesday noon? Because 12:00 am can be after Tuesday noon and before Wednesday noon and will still be called Wednesday, 12:00.

    that would be after Wednesday noon :) for me, in the European time zone, this usually means Thursday morning really early

    @orangeplumbob How did you get pictures of your sims with out the plumbob showing?

    I put a third sim in the house and had him selected when I went to take photos. I really, really hate that headlineeffects doesn't remove the plumbob. I hate plumbobs.

    For those of you having trouble taking pictures- simply go into live mode, pause the Sims you want to photograph- doing whatever you want them to, then press TAB. This will put you in free camera mode and remove all the do dads and what-zits on your screen. The plumbob will still appear on whatever Sim is active but you can usually get pictures around it by either moving your camera or selecting a Sim who is not in the shot to be active. In this mode you have camera controls such as q to lower camera and e to raise it. Press c to capture the image and then you can access the screenshots as usual.
