    It's usually a question of obtaining a link to the photos, so with a .jpg or any extension like that in the end. In imgur it works by clicking 'share links' and then the right one. No image extension, no visible picture ;) great job btw!

    GALLERY COST: 94,997
    TOTAL COST: 99,497
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Indulgence Slideshow
    ENTRY DETAILS:

    Design Notes: Why ‘Indulgence’ for a sub 100k build? Whilst I did try to make this feel reasonably luxurious, it's actually because after a fairly extended break from building I decided to indulge myself…I normally limit pack use but I used all my favourite items from a gazillion packs, I really wanted to play around with platforms and I decided to design to suit what I currently crave in real life…. and then try to make it all work :D
    Sunshine, tick! A clean modern build that doesn’t have a 100 year old leaky roof, tick! No clutter to tidy up, no carpets to vacuum, no home schooling to fit in, tick tick tick! Suspended fire place that I love but *really* won’t fit in my actual home? Built it instead, big tick!! (Oh and you may notice the well stocked bar…depending on the day that could well come higher in the wish list haha). I’ve also got a bit of fascination going with creating structure in an unstructured environment which is how the build wound up in Sulani when it would have been easier to use Oasis Springs!!
    At first glance I thought this was a nice simple foundation….actually found it quite tricky – nice challenge BuildNShare, thank you! :)

    Sales pitch:
    So, welcome to our beautiful rental property - purposefully and breath-takingly positioned on an outcrop of Sulani, Indulgence Getaway showcases the island's award winning beaches and mesmerising sea views. Whichever holiday you want to celebrate in peace and solitude, this is the place for you! Polished concrete floors, squishy seating (or as close as I can get with Sims sofas!) and artistic flair are the order of the day throughout, plus there's a gleaming showstopper of a bar that's ideal for home mixed cocktails.
    (Thoroughly playtested but does need moveobjects on to place so that all the scenery stays put)

    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Most certainly, all feedback very welcome!

    I try not to look at other people's builds until I finish so I don't accidentally 'borrow' any ideas, so I just spent a very enjoyable hour looking at all of your builds, wow you’re a talented bunch!

    Not sure if we're still commenting on one another's builds but I'm going for it anyway!

    @icanhassims Your valentine home is just as beautiful as it looked in your teaser shot, I love how you did the pond and the bridge in <3
    @DeanXel Oh, this foundation was perfect for an Antebellum! (I think that’s the right word??) How clever of you to see it, never even occurred to me – it looks stunning! :)
    @Jazmi1396 Now this is my go-to kind of build but I don’t think I could have made it look half as pretty as you did! And that heart pond…total romance or what?? :)
    @pinkusfamily Gorgeous looking Komorebi house – your deck and hot springs area are to die for, love it! <3
    @KitelDesigns You made a real log cabin house!! That's so clever, I love it!! :)
    @aljay Ah Aljay I’ve missed looking around your builds! Every space just feels effortlessly chic, I just smiled the whole way through <3 (Of course I absolutely do know it’s not effortless, clearly the sign of a master builder to make it seem so 😉….o gosh still doesn’t sound right, I’m jumping out of this one before I get even more in a tangle haha…short version is I love it!! )
    @scholarsim I didn’t realise when I reposted your build that the pics show but your links aren’t there, so I couldn’t look around your slideshow – might be worth trying again with those before the deadline - looks great from you floor plans though, I’ll try to have a look in game 😊
    @ Becka28 So pretty – I love your pathway at the front! So many activities that I didn’t even think about too (doh!)….my family would love a holiday here!
    @clousinators what a pretty home – and talk about the money shot <3 Amazing work building the scenery into your build and slideshow, wish I’d tried more of that now haha!
    @seaben What a cute little get away house, I love all the wild flowers at the front! :)

    @AliSim19 Honestly antebellum (pre-war), I had never heard of this word before, but google says it's correct ^_^'
    Thank you for the nice words, I just took a look at your creation and I was just absolutely blown away. Not that I haven't seen any other lovely builds here, but yours is like, completely my normal style of build (not like the ...antebellum... hehe, although I enjoyed it very much). Love the modern, sleek design and the thoughtful decoration, if I could, I would have built that one in a heartbeat!
  • seabenseaben Posts: 509 Member
    Thank you @AliSim19 :) I like your build a lot I mostly build modern homes as well but stepped out of my comfort zone a bit to build what I did because I like craftsman style homes and want to learn how to build them I like the diagonal split leveling in your house I never thought to do that before so I might experiment with that later ;)
