    Is that a thing :open_mouth: I didn't know! Oh well, I will maybe enter another build challange or something
  • SimsIslandheartSimsIslandheart Posts: 273 Member
    @Laireen35 - as there seem to be a couple of people having difficulties with pictures and the sheer size of this build, we are willing to grant an extension of 4 days. We are giving you the whole weekend!! We will announce this on our twitter feed and our Facebook page. You have until midnight Sunday PDT to get your entries in.

    I just left thanks on Facebook, but I'll reiterate it here - the photography issues were driving me insane! I'm still going to aim to get it done ASAP. <3

    BnS 101 - Five by Five

    The young lady sat across from you looks like she could handle herself in a tough situation, and as she absentmindedly plays with her cuticles you wonder what she is thinking.

    “Well, you know, I really need a place of my own, somewhere without other people’s ‘stuff’ around.” You know from Karl that she is currently sleeping on a friend’s couch.

    “It needs to be small though, I hate large spaces, they feel too, ummm big.”

    You can’t help but have your heart melt a little when she struggles to find a word for frightening that wouldn’t hurt her bad girl exterior, you sense in her eyes that this is not her true persona.

    “So, Faith, do you have any particular style in mind?” You ask her, expecting her to want a grungy, industrial look.

    “Nah, whatever you want.”

    “Really, you don’t mind what style architecture or interior design?”

    “Nah, it’s all five by five.”

    “Five by five?” You ask.

    “You know, it’s all good.”

    She thanks you for her time, and as she stands up to leave, you swear you see a wooden stake peeking out of the inside pocket of her leather jacket

    :o I apologize, but google translate translates very badly. :s
    Have a little patience with me, please, I have some questions.

    1-"adding the ground floor tiles to the upper floor tiles, the number of tiles must NOT exceed 25":
    it means that if you made two floors the total of tiles must ALWAYS be 25, right ?! '!

    2-"You may have a covered outdoor area as long as there are no walls to it.": would it mean covered by a roof (or similar) but without walls?

    3-"Overhead shots with grid lines on are 100% mandatory for this challenge, your build will NOT be judged without them" : What does it mean? :'(

    Thanks and sorry sorry sorry

    @SILVIAEGIGIZINI - A sample of showing grid lines. It is an overhead view in build mode using the Top Down View Button

    Here is a sample of 5 x 5 grid on 1 level

    Here is a sample of a 5 x 5 grid on 2 levels - 15 squares on the bottom level, and 10 squares on the top level for a total of 25 squares.

    ENTRY DETAILS: Yay, a small build! Guess I got lucky there, seeing as I only have this morning (meaning the last three hours) to finish this challenge before I don't have access to the game for the next five weeks :)
    I decided to build a trailer for Faith - she seemed a bit scared of something, so if she gets uncomfortable on her current lot she can just up and move to another one. Just i case it's vampires, i gave her a little seed package and some planters, maybe she'll plant some garlic. The trailer has a combined kitchen / living area with plenty of storage and a small but comfortable sleeping space right next to the living area. Ther also is a TV to keep up with the current news. A full bathroom at the front of the trailer rounds up the indoor space. Under the covered outdoor space - something we call a 'Vorzelt' in germany (i.e. caravan awning?!?) - there is an outdoor cooking area and some seating. In the garden I added a firepit for burning all those pesky little monsters/vampires, just in case one catches up to Faith and she needs to hide the evidence.
    I do hope putting the covered outdoor space right next to the trailer is ok, seeing as that kinda leads to the outdoor space having a wall. I tried leaving a gap, but that just looked weird...

    ENTRY DETAILS: I was thinking if you're trying to hide form vampires, what better place to go than the last place vampires would want to be - Oasis Springs! Being above ground gives Faith an excellent view all around. The rocks and water on two sides provide a natural barrier to some threats, and a screen of trees blocks the view of the neighbors to the east and hides the exact location of the stairs leading up.

Sot I tore it apart shrunk down parts and came up with this! One thing I did reuse was the wall bookcase...which led to a problem. When I play tested I sent Faith to read a book, Didn't work. But no route failure. I looked in the case...all the books were gone. LOL
