    Forgot to include this in my previous post, but I also don't know which items got automatically replaced and what they got replaced with when I placed the lot. I think a bunch of the beds got replaced with the Mod Pod Sleeper and Mod Pod Twin Sleeper since I see those in the default swatch in 4 of the containers and it looks pretty different from what I can see in the lot images on the gallery.


    Don't worry too much about the substituted items, we'll understand if you use what you have now instead of what was originally there. If you like, you can try to find one with the fewest substitutions and use it.

    @ForeverTuesday, Here is a photo of each container destuffed. Containers 15 to 21 should be base game only unless I did something goofy, which is entirely possible. Those containers should not give you trouble with substitutions if you would like to use one of them.

    @SimTresa thanks for the reply :)

    Update:I found the post for you, guess we both missed it. Go back to Oct. 14.

    Thanks for the update @SimTresa but I got the BNS number wrong. Sorry about that :) I don't see results for BNS154 Expert.

    @BuildnShare still no results on BNS154 Expert :/

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Dylan and Sally have moved into their new home. They found an abandoned car, boat and two bikes in the woods, which are on their property now. Their comfy forest home sits in the middle of a special island in Windenburg, which is surrounded by trees to suit their personalities and container (a painting studio).
    Both Dylan and Sally have the painter extraordinaire aspiration. While Sally is an art lover, creative and paranoid, her husband Dylan’s traits are erratic, clumsy and creative. They both share the love of painting (on the easel and the sketchpad, so both can produce income at the same time, and both are creative. Sally, an art lover, is paranoid, while her husband Dylan is erratic and clumsy (he drops his drippy, wet paint brushes on the floor sometimes, and has fallen off the treadmill several times, so Sally bought a penguin TV for him do exercise on the floor doing exercise videos).
    They share symptoms of Strangerville residents, although, they have slightly different diagnoses, but they prefer to live on the island in Windenburg, which is more isolated. The house has great ocean views, since the Windenburg island is, in fact, an island. Everyone else on the wooded island moved out when the couple moved in because Dylan and Sally prefer to be alone. The house is small, and the container is smaller, still. However, it’s perfect for them, and they are ecstatic that her parents purchased the perfect container for them to use to finally generate an income from painting. The artwork in the container was created by Dylan and Sally prior to moving in. It was the only surviving art from Sally’s parent’s basement, where the couple had stored their artwork while they were dating and engaged.
    A flood ravaged the majority of it, but these few pieces, which Sally’s parents had kept the highest off the ground in their basement. Now, her parents have invested in a sump pump because they realized the dire need for it after most of their items in storage in the basement, including Sally and Dylan’s artwork were destroyed in the flash flood.
    The house has one bedroom (with a fireplace) and bathroom on the second floor, and a kitchen, dining area, living room and study on the first. Pops of yellow and sprays of sunflowers pump some cheer into their tiny abode.

    I was thinking about joining this challenge, but the house I'm working on looks best in a destination world. I think in those worlds we can only make rentals. Can I still use this house for the challenge, or will that mean the house won't work since it will be turned into a rental?

    Thank you so much, those pictures are super helpful!!!!!! The biggest point of confusion for me was that I have several containers with a lot of the same base game items. I couldn't even guess which, if any, of these containers were intended to be mostly base game and which ones had just had nearly every item automatically replaced when I placed the lot.

    For example, this is what the first two containers look like for me: https://imgur.com/a/i0KZLWB
  • JojoMOMSTERJojoMOMSTER Posts: 1,846 Member
    @illusie all rentals in your game become residential on the gallery so it’s totally fine. Forgive me for being selfish but I would love to see your build.

    @ForeverTuesday you’re welcome, I’m glad it makes more sense this way.

    @JojoMOMSTER thank you! That's good to know it will turn into a residential on the gallery and that it's allowed for this challenge.

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Dylan and Sally are twins. At a young age they found out they both loves gardening. While helping their mom in the garden they once discovered a fossil, which started Sally's interest in archeology. They kept looking for more fossils, but didn't find any in their mom's garden. A few plants were sacrificed in the name of science. Luckily they outgrew that phase...or did they? Now that Dylan and Sally are adults they are about to move out. Both still love gardening and love art. Dylan loves painting, while Sally is more interested in restoring art especially artifacts she dug up. thats why the twins moved to Selvadorada. There Dylan hopes to find new inspiration for his art, and Sally wants to make some new discoveries. They will earn money with the plants they frow in the shed and the artifacts Sally restores. Dylan sleeps upstairs where he will be able to grab a paintbrush the moment he wakes up. Sally sleeps downstairs. The twins received a container from their parents which they used for the house. They sold a few items, but kept most. They can't wait to move into their new home, which is called La Bienhallada (which means the welcome)!

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://imgur.com/a/YlF9PoW

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    My oh my, this was quite the challenge! With the couple's §22,000 total budget, we had to be very strategic in providing them everything they need. Once we nailed down the essentials, we were able to develop the accents and landscaping.

    My approach to this build was to provide a contemporary aesthetic for the repurposing of a shipping container. Sally’s parents graciously allowed me to select a container on their behalf, and we were very fortunate! We had been gifted with neutral rustic kitchen pieces that provide a cozy and lived-in feel. A bright and fresh colour palette allows for pops of colours in various locations. We decided on yellow for the main house and green for the shipping container work studio.

    Since the budget was solid, the bathroom is a clean and open area for ease of maintenance and cleaning. The open staircase allows the room to feel larger instead of closed off. Upstairs, a lovely textured rug provides warmth to the couple’s bedroom.

    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes, please!

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    This green-thumbed-woodworking-young-couple is ready to conquer the world together. After receiving a new home, they knew that they had to get their closets in order. Both are equally fashionable and expressive. Neutral colours, texture and fun shapes are things they always consider when putting an outfit together.

    Dylan and Sally tend to wear similar colour palettes because they enjoy being photographed together and love to show off their collective aesthetics.

    Sally is a fan of long draping clothing as well as fit and flare shapes. She has curves and loves to show them off. Dylan is a tad on the preppy side but loves to be comfortable. He thoroughly enjoys showing off his sneaker collection!

    ENTRY DETAILS: Minka 4-2 is a traditional country Japanese house for a couple. The container I picked cost was $17,583 so plus $22,000 gave me a total of $39,583 to spend. I imagine Dylan and Sally as a young modern couple who loves the nature, outdoors and gardening but at the same time they love to share their lifestyle as youtubers and as bloggers, and why not? to get some incomes from that, so they gave a makeover to the container to fit with the house style and placed there a study room and a youtuber studio and a small bathroom in the middle. More details in the slideshow.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Sure. I always feel curiosity.

    Be Mine
    Sims 4 | #BnS158


    You look up with interest as your newest client steps in and takes a seat, anticipating a new challenge. “Hello, Mr. Love. What can I do for you?”
    Valentine Love smiles widely at you. “I have been looking everywhere for the best place to propose to my beloved Amanda. It has to be just right, you see, and unique. But nothing suited us. Then I hit uponthe perfect solution: I could have one built!”
    You sit up straighter, intrigued, anticipating a new challenge. It has been a while since you have had the opportunity to build something other than a house and you welcome the change of pace, wanting to help this young couple. “Oh? What did you have in mind?”
    “Something small, intimate and romantic. An outdoor proposal area with lights, music and flowers. I would also like a covered area to eat either before or after.”
    You nodd, already getting ideas. “Is there anything else?”
    “Could you possibly include hearts or heart-shapes in the decor or landscaping?” Mr. Love asks earnestly.
    “I’ll see what i can do,” you promise.


    The brief:
    Budget: $30,000
    Lot size: 20x15 or 20x20.
    Build an outdoor proposal area with lights, flowers and music.
    Include a space for Valentine and Amanda to sit and enjoy a meal.
    Add anything else you like as your budget allows.

    Sim Challenge; Create Valentine and Amanda along with all their outfits.. Choose their traits, aspirations, likes and dislikes. Valentine must have the Romantic trait and Soulmate aspiration. Be sure to show them in their special proposal garden.

    Room Challenge: No room challenge this time.


    Remember to include the entirely of the hashtag #bns158 or your entries will not be judged! The deadline for this challenge is Monday, February 28th, no later than 23:59:59 EST/New York time.
