    So....I made a shell for the library...and then checked the cost. Yikes! I may need to make it a teensy bit smaller, lol

    So... same thing happened to me @misscbong :-) I got super excited about this build, got started and before I knew it, I was at 70,000 and the inside was still empty. Maybe a three story was a little ambitious for this budget :) But I think I will just finish it anyway and then start over, there's still quite some time left for this challenge and I am really enjoying my build, don't really want to stop just because I've gone over budget.

    If anyone cares to check out my totally failed attempt at this challenge, for a whopping $206,000 you can download the first version of "Newcrest Library" on the gallery (ID: ChaosSimmer86). Hope you guys are doing better than me :) I'm going to start over tomorrow. Had fun doing the build though, my first library :)

    Yes! Copy the link in your address bar, and when pasted in here - remove the https:// so you can post the rest. I'm sure we can figure it out from there
    Money can't buy you happiness
    but it can buy The Sims
    which is pretty much
    the same thing

    @ambzz3 - neither of those links are working for me, can you message us directly with the links and then we can quote and add them to your entry form.

    @ambzz2 and @BuildnShare
    I could access the gallery upload at: Modern Library
    But the slide show link needed my microsoft login and then said the item either didn't exist or I didn't have permission to see it.
  • mannannamannanna Posts: 440 Member
    Popping in to say "hi" and am impressed by the different takes on the last challenge. Love the big chessboard @glen1974! Good luck to all who participated!
    I haven't been in a mood for building lately :( I open the game, stare at an empty lot for awhile and close the game again, lol. Maybe a new library will get me inspired again? :)
  • kilra0kilra0 Posts: 612 Member
    @mannanna hopefully you'll get inspired soon :*
  • Simming_SpoonieSimming_Spoonie Posts: 1,880 Member
    So, I'm working on something totally out there for this next challenge, and I'm super excited about it!!
    Follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Instgram
  • AinsleyfAinsleyf Posts: 880 Member
    Some beautiful work on the last challenge guys!! I got overwhelmed by the size of the place and, honestly, consider myself more of a builder than a decorator, but I'm really impressed by what folks came up with!

    @mannanna - I'm there all the time. I follow 6 different challenge threads and try to enter every challenge and end up staring at a screen for about half of them. Either that or I start builds and end up trashing them. I am confident that you'll get ramped up over a project soon!!!

    @Faithofkaela - out there? I really like out there! I'm kinda intrigued now! Looking forward to it!

    I'm kind of done, but think I should wait a couple of days and look back to see if I want to make changes. I do still have 2000 left to spend (WooHoo!)

    ENTRY DETAILS: Clean and abstract lines with a splash of bold colors here and there. In this modern library a sim will find a children's area on the first floor, along with a coffee bar. The majority of the collection is located on the second floor. You know in case of future flooding. The bathroom and learning center are located on the top floor. Two balconies offer a fresh burst of air just in case sims might need it.

    @rainesrandi your library is beautiful, love the mix of white and black tone inside it. But i think you're not suppose do exceed the budget of 100,000 for the challenge.But then again, maybe i'm wrong(i'm not a judge :) ) and you're not far from it. :)

    edit: how did you do the little white line in your parking lot?

    @rainesrandi - I'm not sure why you've listed your lot at $101,557, when in the gallery it states that it is $99,917, which is of course under budget, you might want to tweak your entry form. Also, don't worry about adding the lot cost onto this one, as it has been provided by Newcrest Town Council ;)

    @LadyAlexiel Those little white lines are called 'Fence for Window shopping' under the fences section. I love it :) Used it in my parking lot too lol

    @rainesrandi Your build is lovely! I enjoyed your pictures.

    @FaithofKaela I can't wait to see your build! You've gotten us all hyped about it.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I tried to make a modern and progressive library by keeping it simple and giving it a intriguing shape. My build is inspired by the Failing water modern fountain object in game. It's mostly decorated with white tone inside and there is a colorful area for children. The outside of the library is colorful with this illuminated pillar and this tinted windows.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This was so fun! I have never built a modern structure before. It was very enlightening and I hope I did well. The Highbrow Library is a great addition to any town. Sticking with 'modern' theme, the build has smooth lines and bold coloring. I hope you enjoy the pictures. I know I've liked using this library in my own town. Thanks for this learning opportunity!

    Thank you @mannanna I am glad you liked it. It was one of those ideas that just came to me in the middle of doing the build as I had no idea where I was going with this build. I too also have times when I have builder's block and find it really hard to get inspired. However doing the challenges on here from time to time really does help and pushes me to be more creative. Plus everyone here is so supportive of one another too :smile: Hope you are able to get building again soon!
