    If you don't own Seasons do the decorations for the Winterfest shot have to be included in the budget for the house? - they are very expensive.

    Yes, sorry. You can try using debug objects to try to offset some of the cost.

    How exactly can you play the lot for several seasons and THEN include the decorations in the original price? Just wondering...

  • AlJayAlJay Posts: 908 Member
    @iampes23 I don't believe you need to play the house in different seasons. They just need outdoor pictures of your house in summer to see the details of the yard that the snow hides in winter. If I am correct, when you go into build mode from the world menu it should always be summer.

    Hey guys, It's been a while. I still have to play test, but I just finished the build. Question: I considered myself an advanced Sims 3 builder. However, this is only my third sims 4 build. The basics are still there and, while there are fiddly bits, the learning curve isn't that steep. Can I enter as established?

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Slideshow
    ENTRY DETAILS: (Be sure to tell us about your entry) : I tried to limit packs - the 3 main packs were Cats and Dogs, Parenthood and the free holiday pack. One or two minor items come from Get together and Laundry Day. A lot of the objects in the living space feature the dark grey blue colour - I wanted it to look like they had painted the variety of donated objects to look uniform and belong together in the cottage. Miss Owens has a study and a beautiful window seat in the turret window to sit and read - or relax as she regains her health. I felt her favourite colour was pink (hence the exterior and bedroom colours). There are holiday decorations and as I don't own seasons - I made it a Summerfest celebration and placed Sandpals instead of Snow pals and placed some sand "snow" around them. I love the lot and feel its secluded location means the owners don't have to follow the dominant faux Tudor style of Windenburg.

    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: yes please

    ENTRY DETAILS: Miss Owens is a good teacher who always makes every student feel welcome and excited about her subject. She was extremely sick for several months and ended up in the hospital. She had to sell her house to pay the hospital bills, and she has been homeless ever since. Her students decided to form a committee to collect money to do something special for her and the town got behind their efforts and donated money, land and materials for a new home. Students were based on the following descriptions from the entry details: blonde and burly boy,
    red haired in the blue beanie, girl with bright pink cheeks and bubble gum pink hair and a male in a red parka. I tried to keep to the same packs as I used with Miss Owens house.

    ENTRY DETAILS: This cozy little cottage is made out of different materials wich the students painted in warm colours suitable for Winter Festival. The furniture comes from practically everywhere, some of it is given by people who had no use for it anymore and some of it is store bought with the money the students collected. Some furniture has been repainted by the students so it would all match together.
    The students have also made holiday decoration and holiday cards.
    Since Miss Owens loves Winter Festival the students hope that she will feel right at home in her new place, surrounded by lovely holiday wishes and decorations.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes please, always room for improvement.

    ENTRY DETAILS: The lot that Marvin was no longer in need of just so happened to be in Windenburg. It was originally intended to be his vacation home, but as it turns out it will suit Miss. Owens quite nicely. The home has a European cottage style, with vines growing up the stone walls and a feature copper roof over the bay window. The house has two fireplaces in the home for extra warmth and a large dining space for Miss. Owens to enjoy spending Christmas with her students and friends. She is an avid knitter and so you will find many hand made items throughout the home. There is also a fishing pond on the property for Miss. Owens to enjoy during her summer holidays as well.
