    Questions and Answers

    If you have a question please ask.
    But You may even find the answer all ready here.


    Posted by = oiswise
    Date posted = 4th 3 2015
    The question = Can we bulldoze something and build on that lot or should it be an empty lot? Also any size restrictions?

    Answer is = yes you can bulldoze and re use a lot I can a new lots if need be.

    **************************************************

    Question by = oiswise
    Date posted =4th 3 2015
    The question = are there any lot size restrictions ?

    Answer is = No you can use any size of lot

    **************************************************

    Question by = oiswise
    Date posted = 17th march 2015
    The questions =
    Q1) I had a question about THIS contest....
    this building contest is for the same town that that the fairy contest was for.
    I am assuming that the builds for this contest should be either for fairies or at least fairy friendly?
    or am I misunderstanding?

    Q2) I don't have sims4 so unable to judge interest in a contest by those who do have it.
    Obviously if there is interest I hope everyone has a blast.
    My not taking part in it if it happens is merely because I don't have the game.

    Answer is =
    Q1. yes it is the same world, but its upto you whether the community lots are fairy based or not.
    Theres still some lots on the island if you wish to do fairy community lots. Other wise the lots will be on the main land of River view.

    Q2. thats perfectly fine, Im just testing the water.
    I will still be running sim3 comps as that the moment sims4 is very limited.

    **************************************************

    Question by = okester
    Date posted =22 march 2015
    The question = Correct me if I'm wrong, but a business with attached residence is just a residential lot with business items on it, right? o.o
    And do plants from buydebug count as spawners?

    Answer is = yes however in order for it to work properly it will need the public room marker from buydebug.

    **************************************************

    Question by = ragan651
    Date posted = 27th march 2015
    The question = why dont you allow cc

    Answer = I dont have any cc in my game because
    as it kept the game free from cc keep my game free from lag .
    Plus saves me from the relentless removing and updating with every ep sp and all of ea updates/patches.

    Your not limited with EPs SPs as i have them all.
    plus I have 98 pessent if not more of the sims3 store items and sets.
    **********************************

    Question by = AriyAriy
    Dated posted = 28th march 2015
    The Question = im thingk of creatinga small shoping center to which I ask would be the right entry type

    Answer = Entry type 4 for shop, mini shopping villages and shoping Mall.
    ***********************************

    Question by = LadyGreenEyes
    Dated posted = 2nd april
    The Question = What exactly do you mean by "non-active play" and "active play" when building/changing existing lots? Running some ideas through my head, and want to be sure I stay within the contest rules!

    Answer = Non active play EA lots like the rabbit holes an others where you cant see your sim or directly control them.

    Active play EA lots are ones you can both see and control your sims and maybe even own.

    Ooh! This looks like fun, dear. I happen to have an idea for a library that I want to try and build and was considering doing it in Riverview anyway, so if I can get that going and built/tested, I could definitely enter it.

  • ElimarnaElimarna Posts: 1,484 Member
    I've started and made some nice progress on the library. I decided to use the rather small lot the existing library is on to challenge myself, space-wise, rather than go with something overly extravagant in size. It's going well, I think, especially since I don't normally build a lot of community lots. Or any...

    Size of lot ;40-30
    lot value ;126,557$
    Short descriptive story about the lot ; There was once a poor man named Sean Richman. He was so interested in gambling he never saw any good food so all he had for a long time was canned soup and cereal. But one faithful day he actually won the lottery! He was so ecstatic that he builds a gym with all the money. He's still in the habit of gambling but atleast he did something for the community!

    Hello @adeade45 :) I know that because you are not a member yet you are unable to post pictures. Simmers are unable to see the media tab of other simmers. We can only see our own media tab pictures. We are unable to see your pictures of your gym that are in your studio. I am sorry. Could you perhaps post the pictures another way?
