    I was only going to photo one side. I see no point in what will end up being nothing more than duplicates pictures by doing both sides. :)

    Hmm...was editing my previous comment, and apparently it got eaten. :( I forgot to ask before - if my duplex is two units that are mirror images of each other, do I have to photograph all the rooms, or can I just photograph one unit in full and have the overheads of each floor show how they're mirrored?

    If you didn't change up the decorations and color scheme for each sister, then one set of photos would be fine. Just add a note to the judges that the 2nd unit is an exact copy.

    That was my thought, too, but I wasn't sure if the judges wanted exact details - for example, some objects don't mirror 100%, because they're asymmetrical in design, and even when they're placed in a mirrored position, they still look very slightly different in the opposite room. It's not noticeable at a casual glance for most things, but it's noticeable if you really examine it, like those "spot the difference" pictures.

    Will do, thanks! They have the same of everything; the write-up kind of suggested that, with them being identical down to their accessories and facial expressions, and my twins ended up identical enough in-game that I think they'd freak if they didn't have the same stuff, anyway. XD They already spend most of their time together as it is. XD

    Oooooh, another duplex build... I thoroughly enjoyed the previous one (which was ages ago :D ), very tempted to give it a try if I can find the time :)
    What have I been up to lately? Cerrydd / #cerrydd in the gallery
  • AfterMidnightAfterMidnight Posts: 986 Member
    Question: can the duplex have a shared balcony, or does it have to be separate balconies for each space?

    The balcony can be shared or separate - up to you!

    Which link do I use to post? The BBCode or the LinkedBBCode?
  • SimTresaSimTresa Posts: 2,695 Member
    @Pirate, just use the BBCode. Linked is if you want the screenshot to serve as a link.

    Think I might just skip this one. Having more trouble than usual getting the colors to match. Orange looks peach, gray looks brown, white looks white on a foundation then turns gray on the attached stairs. Even when I go to change a gray staircase to white it stays gray. Turn it light brown, it goes dark brown. Try to go back to gray, it stays brown.

    So I managed to get the cost down to $5 under budget. (I don't want to talk about it! :s LOL) I went to load them up to Imgur but I can't make a new album. Is there a limit to the number of albums you can have or have they changed things?

    Never mind ... I finally found how to do it now they've changed everything around.

    Have you tried clearing your cache files and repairing your game?

    Yay - glad you were able to get your costs down! It can be tedious trying to re-work (and even painful sometimes), but it can also stretch your creativity ;)

    im a little unclear on what a showcase is and howi make one
  • PiratePirate Posts: 66 Member
    Is the showcase the page link on The Gallery that shows all my builds and families or is it the link that comes up when I click on the specific thing I would like to enter?

    @Pirate and maybe @jeswainston65 taken from the Rules on Page 1 of the Build N Share Forum pages, and I quote
    " All entries must provide a media showcase for BuildnShare to use when judging your entries. We feel that it is unfair to expect our judges to have every SP, GP and EP in order to judge from a download. Please ensure that any features you wish the judges to see are shown in your media showcase. your media showcase should consist of still images of your build and be uploaded to an image hosting website such as flickr, picasa, imgur, a blog or even a thread here on the forums. Please note that we will not judge any entry hosted on Photobucket, tinypics. bannersnack or post image."

    So This means You must take photos of your finished build- either in Build mode or in game then post them in an online album ( such as the rules provide examples ), and provide the link so judges can view them...

    Here is a Great link to help with taking the photos of your build & its made by BuildNShare !!

    I hope this helps,

    They didn't, but I did figure out a workaround. I removed the two rooms directly above the two shorter flights of stairs, which made them and the ones int he middle of the room show up properly. Think I'm going to leave those off for layout and first floor pictures, then put them back when I'm ready to do the second floor.

    @Pinkusfamily the link you provided above is not working for me at all, is it correct? I would love to do this challenge(never have done a build and share one before) I know how to take pictures in game and upload to imgur, but not sure my pictures will turn out as good as what I am seeing. Is there another link or thread available to help beginners? Thank you ♥
  • HIGHER_DESIGNHIGHER_DESIGN Posts: 57 Member
    Looks awesome, I look forward to submitting! Thanks for the opportunity!
  • PinkusfamilyPinkusfamily Posts: 447 Member
    @brenleedee When you look at The Build n Share pages here in the forums, The very first page , has this link, Go to page 1 and read everything~ right before The expert Winner Showcase, there is a section about Screenshots: Tips and Tricks - The link at the end of that section is the link I put above..

    Good Luck,

    Diane Pinkus
