UPDATED Best Lot Creations Ever - recommendations for Maxis Tab

Hey Simmers!

This is the thread where you can recommend other people's creations for consideration for the Maxis Tab on the Gallery. We curate around 50 pieces of content (Households, Lots and Rooms) each week. But we don't see everything and we are sure there are some amazing creations out there that we all miss. Help us to spotlight the best of the best.

RULES:
  • Please post the full name of the Lot
  • Please post the Origin ID of the original creator
  • Lots with CC (Custom Content or Mods) should not be recommended. At this time, we are not curating any CC Lots. (Yes, I know, please don't shout at me.)
  • Please double check if we have already curated the content before you recommend it here.
  • Being recommended here is not a guarantee that we will curate - please don't be disappointed if your Lot doesn't end up making the cut.
  • If you edit your original post, please can you indicate very clearly the NEW stuff. We are getting some great recommendations but it's hard to tell what the new ones are in older posts.

NEW RULES:
  • Please only nominate finished builds. If a build is unfinished, we would prefer not to review it.
  • Great to see nominations from our established builders, but wouldn't it be great to nominate some hidden gems? If you have time, nominate an "unknown" builder.
  • This thread is for nominations only. If you want to contribute to the discussion, then @BryonyRae has a great thread over here.

UPDATE: There has been a great discussion thread on this topic which has sparked some changes to the rules. Please read the NEW RULES above to see what has changed.

    Hi Guru's

    My daughters have played sims since they could talk. Me however, never really get involved in any forums but today I want to because I have never seen a talented person get so thrashed in a forum.
    So let me have the honor to be the first one to nominate Zita1966. A new but very talented builder and I hope many others will follow:
    My daughters and I, because we LOVE her creations nominate:

    PALACE Du ROSSOUW (Outstanding build) - by Zita1966
    The SIMS CLUB (Outstanding)- by Zita1966
    Val de Gra Villa (Superior build) - by Zita1966
    Ronnie Red and Raving (Great build) - by Zita1966
    Kaleidoscope Dance Club (Best nightclub in the game) - by Zita1966
    America's WHITE HOUSE (WOW!) - by Zita1966

    We will nominate some other great builds later - for now we hope that the Maxis team will right the wrong done to this lady today in the forum.

    Regards Fashionista7777 and daughters

    What an awesome thread, @SimGuruBChick! Thanks for letting us do this. I would like to nominate these for now:

    Pacific Beach House by Julseey (*)

    Adobe Flat Starter by horseenut (*)

    Asian | Japanese Mansion by Sisain (*)

    Respecterion 9000 Final by TheGreenLion

    Redsdale by MadScientis7 (this is a really awesome build, but its gallery picture did not do it any justice. If you look at it in game, you'll see why I nominated it though.)

    I'm always on the lookout for interesting and underappreciated builds, so I'm glad to have a place to try to get them some visibility. :)

    Edit: Yay! So happy to see two of these faved today. :)

    Hey, I noticed I had a run on rec's with Creekside Cabin, I also noticed a comment left on another build that it was rec'd on the forums, I really didn't understand how, since I hadn't posted it. After searching Copper Mirage, I was directed to this page, believe me when I say I never ever thought it would be here. Thank you so much for even considering my builds being in the same category with some of the builds here, and thank you maxis for the favorite. (makes me all bubbly inside)

    I know a lot of awesome creations get lost in the shuffle and don't receive the recognition they should, most of the nominations I haven't even seen, I will be checking all of them out!

    I'd like to nominate some as well:

    Seaview Cottage by Lillie1311

    Drakenstein by Cayun

    and the fantastic Mansao Mustashe by OLOXA

    ****New****
    cant forget the unforgettable nightclub Temple of Hades by TheGreenLion favorited, Yay!!! as a matter of fact this was so loved I noticed it again today on the gallery by petergamerrr....I hope I haven't fav'd any that were originally posted by someone else.

    there are many more, I'll have to come back and add them.

    Thank you again to TheGreenLion and Ruthless_kk, you don't know how much your nominations mean to me! :)

    First off, how can you tell if a lot has already been favorite by EA/Maxis? I could not even tell on my lot that was favorite (thanks TGL!).

    I have a couple to nominate for right now, but I will definitely be adding more! :D

    I wanted to nominate BryonyRae for Rock N Roll House, but I see yanti beat me to it!! LOL

    TheGreenLion - Temple of Hades
    Evie Snowmoon - My Little Pink Starter
    Cevans1962 - Toffee Crisp


    I will add more a little later!

    You've just got to look on the Maxis tab, Tiki. As far as I know, there is no other way to tell. Well, other than the obvious # of downloads/faves skyrocketing. :p

    And while I'm here, I'd like to toss out a couple more noms:
    • Basilica De Sims by Fischio7 (*)
    • Casa de La Brisa by Julseey

    here is my little list for this great idea.

    Rock N Roll house by BryonyRae done thank you
    Palm Springs by BloodRaveGB
    Willow Wood by madstyle79
    Forest Lodge KaiXDemmoness done thank you
    Modern hollywood Mansion by J0l1990

    Question, Why do a lot of my builds not show up on the 7 day favorites list or download lists when they are less than 7 days old and have enough downloads or favorites to do so. This has happened to me so many times now. Example of this is StarDrive Generator which was created on the 15th has 65 downloads and 25 favorites? This happens to my builds regular.
