Welcome to my Sims 4 Quality Control Contest, this competition is a builders and designers contest. I love seeing how creative people can be and I have been a part of some wonderful competitions on these forums. I could only dream this competition becomes as popular as them but for now we will see how it goes.
My goal with this challenge is to see people improve, I started out having no idea how to build anything but a square box house. I started entering competitions and never dreamed I could build some of the things I have today, though I still have a lot to learn.
I see a lot of builds on the gallery that look wonderful on the outside but are lacking on the inside with decor or simply play ability with sims so this competition is all about Quality.
There is 3 parts to the Quality Control Contests
Quality Control Contest (Bi-weekly/fortnightly)
Quality Control Monthly Contest
QC Create A Room Contest (Bi-weekly/fortnightly)

QC Competiton Guide
If you are new to the competitions or thinking about entering I highly suggest checking out the QC Competition Guide, it has tons of helpful information that pretty much explains what we look for in entries. It's kind of like cheating because we tell you what you need to win haha.
You can find it here: QC Competition Guide

Quality Control Practice Challenges are to help people learn about all aspects of building, decorating and landscaping. It is also a place for more experienced players to share their knowledge
Please check out the Quality Control Practice Challenges HERE

This competition challenge will run for 2 weeks each.
The challenges will specify the lot sizes and budgets but they will be between:
Lot sizes: 30x20 to 40x30
Budgets: 80k - 300k

You also have the option to enter just for fun without being judged, there will be no feedback. Just simply enter as an unofficial entry and share your amazing creations with us.

There are 4 levels you can enter in this contest:
Intermediate - For newer players and new people entering the qc competitions
players that tend to have placement issues, that are still learning the tips and tricks to placement and still learning to be really creative.
Experienced - For those players that have been building for a while, can use moo and ALT
have an understanding of placement and play ability and experiement with creativity
Advanced - For those more confident players that can be super creative, great attention to detail, little to no placement and play ability errors.
Unofficial - For those players who just want to have some fun, entries will not be judged.

We love our Novice (beginner) builders and we offer building tips and advice in our feedback to help you learn and improve, so please don't feel overwhelmed entering the only way to improve and learn is to jump and have a go. Novices please enter the Intermediate level and note on your entry form you are a novice.
