    @Buildnshare - Does there need to be a communal room for the skill items, or can we put each item into their own buildings? Like, can we have an easel in Raven's building, or do we need each of the skill items all in one communal room?

    @misscbong The brief just says you need to include them it doesn't state where ;)

    Well hello there @SimsIslandheart, thanks for stopping by! Get that old thinking cap on, we're sure you'll think of something epic! And no one said anything about no CC ;)

    Oh, yeah, I know - I just don't have any CC in my game right now, because I have zero time to monkey with any mods or troubleshooting - my computer is enough of a bear about my game as it is. XD I've seen all kinds of pretty "hippie" stuff in CC posts and communities, but I'll just have to work with what EA/Maxis gives us and my limited expansion packs. ^^;

    So before you told me CC was ok but your new rules contradict this. I just want to be sure,
    is CC permitted or no?
  • BuildnShareBuildnShare Posts: 3,499 Member
    @pirate - we've never said using CC is not permitted.
    Also using 'low value/high quality' CC is a no no.
    Is the only stipulation, and this is because it gives an unfair advantage. We have always allowed CC to be included in Build n Share

    Pardon my misunderstanding. I was not aware there were different qualities of CCs. In all the research I've done on the subject, quality was never mentioned in any of the articles I've read. I havent noticed an Artist specify the quality of their CCs either.
      - What exactly is low value/high quality CC?
      - How can I tell the difference between CC that is and is not permitted?
      - & Is there a specific site I can download CC that is not low value/high quality?
    • PiratePirate Posts: 66 Member
      also do the 3 spaces need to be connected by/to the communal building?

        I think this is meaning that the item has the quality of a more expensive item but the CC creator made it cost less in the sim catalog. Example: the bed that gives +10 sleep and a +10 comfortable level but it only cost 100 simoleons.

        I wanted to know if the "room" for each person has to be a literal four-sided room with a door or if it could be an open shared room with one side for one person and the other side for the other person? Also in making the sims I imagined two of them being a couple who have been together for a long time so they share a bed. Is that okay or does there need to be 6 separate beds?

        @Pallystyle I am by no means BuildnShare, but the brief states 3 separate private buildings and the brief also implies that they are 3 couples. @BuildnShare please correct me, if I am wrong.

          OOh I understand what "low value/high quality" means but I've never been able to tell the price 'til after I've downloaded it.
          Is there a way to determine if it is lv/hq before downloading it, or is it a bettin' man's game? Every download is another roll of the dice?

          @Pallystyle - you are absolutely correct, this is exactly why that rule is stipulated. I hope this helps @pirate.

          As for the 'rooms', they can be distributed as you wish, no restrictions, it's up to you how to best divide up the sleeping arrangements ;)

          @gmcrozier - it was never actually stated that they are couples, but they could be if you want them to be ;)

          ENTRY DETAILS:

          In the mid-1700s, the Ottoman Empire opened Greece up to European tourists again, which led to the Greek Revival movement in architecture. With it came the ideals of Romanticism and this idea of bucolic Arcadia--the wild, peaceful countryside--being the Best Thing Ever. So yeah, you could say that the Romantics (Shelley, Byron, Coleridge, Keats, etc.) were the original hippies: thumbing their collective noses at conventional society. Basically, when I hear "back to nature", I think of classical Greece.

          One innovation of the Romantic era was the "haha", a ditch used to separate pieces of land without the appearance of any manmade structures. I took this idea and sank the build into the ground, to get the same effect. From outside, the build looks like just three temple follies behind a hedge; but there's more once you get inside.

          CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Sure....

          Wow, @Xinqun! Looks like we had similar ideas for the pool, but mine is all above ground, so no worries.

          Beautiful entry, @Xinqun! I love the "longing for Arcadia" as we call in in Germany and you are absolutely right about the poets you mentioned, they were the first hippies.

          ENTRY DETAILS: Since my test-Sims Sparrow and Storm fell in love - I decided to add a waggon, but first things first... I found the old Windenbrug Island Station, a diamond in the rough. Secluded, abandoned and left to decay. So I restored the old Station building almost to it's former victorian glory and pieced together three waggons of the old Island Line, which are now the sleeping and hobby quarters for the six of them. They all are connected, whether through the old tracks or through the platform and they are a symbol for the constant spiritual journey this group of people is on. Enjoy the Happy Hippie Train!
          CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: yes, please!

          Thanks, all. And @jhgkjhgkjh I love the backstory and all the colours on yours. It feels very much like the group just happened to find this disused place and "reclaimed" it for themselves.
