    Want to clarify that it is okay to have deleted all of the rooms...? @Buildnshare

    We're leaving that bit in the challenge brief as it was the original intent, but no one will be disqualified if their build strays from that. [it wasn't clarified in the original brief, and people who started on the build before the clarification was posted should not be penalized for our mistake]

    I've got plenty of room ideas now. My main problem is going to be the landscaping. Are we allowed to move the house on the lot?

    Go for it! :)

    So, what is CMT? I am on EST (eastern standard time). I can't find CMT. I see CST (central standard time). Or do you mean GMT (Greenwich Time Zone)?

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: http://s1297.photobucket.com/user/masajo2/slideshow/Escapade

    ENTRY DETAILS: The inspiration object is a picture named 'Time Will Tell in B-flat'. The sunflowers against the blue background inspired me to
    build a beach style home, the yellow representing the sand and the blue the sky/sea, hence the yellow/blue colour scheme. Thinking seaside
    led to a build for rest and relaxation.

    Yep - it was supposed to be GMT! Good catch, I'll fix that. Actually, we'll be changing it to Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)/Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). *However, it's usually several hours after that before we actually officially close the challenge.* ;)

    Midnight Wednesday GMT:

    The last minute of any day is 11.59 pm. Do you mean midnight Thursday (Wednesday night)? Because midnight Tuesday night is actually Wednesday, meaning the deadline already passed at 11 pm UK time (daylight savings).

    If I haven't missed the deadline, I'll finish this lot because I have the day off today, and Sims 2 crashed out so I'm not distracted.

    LOT: The A.R.C.
    LOT COST: 2000
    BUILD COST: 407,270
    TOTAL COST: 409,270
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: The A.R.C.
    ENTRY DETAILS: My inspirational item was the Reflective Caution Zone Warning Sign, which can be viewed below. For whatever reason it screamed alien research to me, so that's what I went for! The Alien Research Complex or A.R.C. is a facility designed specifically for scientific exploration and discovery. It features a medical bay and botany lab in the main building, as well as a telescope with a diagnostic lab at the rear of the complex. The main building also features a scanning chamber and sterilization alcove to keep the crew safe and secure. During downtime, said crew can enjoy themselves in the spa, lounge or mess hall - only after whipping up a gourmet meal in their state of the art kitchen with bar - or they can better themselves and their skills in the game chamber or fitness center. The only question is, in space, no one can hear you scream, but can they hear you sim?

    I would say that this gives you that extra little wiggle room ya may need to get yourself into the mix. Go! Go! Go! You can do it!

    @Kementari , @EmmaVane
    Ok - so, in checking further on the times, I realized that midnight UTC is actually mid-evening on the 26th for those in the US. So, I am changing the time zone to HST which is the last time zone in the world to hit midnight and start the new day. That gives everyone who might possibly be entering until midnight in their own time zone to complete the challenge.

    I found this handy-dandy website which has a bar you can drag to see what time midnight HST will be in your timezone. :)

    The deadline is midnight, not 12:00 am. It's always been my understanding that midnight marks the end of one day and the beginning of the next. So, you have until the end of Wednesday the 26th to finish the challenge.

    I'm posting #26, but I will wait until tomorrow morning before work to officially close #25, so keep those designer showdown entries coming until midnight HST (http://everytimezone.com/#2015-8-26,750,cn3)
    A reminder to use the entry form as is. If you are adding any pictures, please limit them to two per entry post and place them at the bottom of the entry form.

    # 26 - The Novelist

    “Jade! How lovely to see you!” you exclaim. Going to the grocery store is always fun for you. You run into everyone at sometime or other it seems. In this case, it's literally. “Sorry for bumping your cart,” you apologize.

    “Its okay,” the woman smiles back at you with lips painted wine red. “However you have the wrong sister.”

    You step back, studying her. Emerald green eyes glitter in amusement at you, a deeper warmer look than Jade’s pale green business like stare. Instead of being pulled stylishly but efficiently back from her face, the sister’s raven hair curls romantically around her face and over her shoulders. Her dress, made of a rich burgundy velvet, is casually and elegantly Gothic in style. Otherwise, she’s identical to Jade Bloodclaw.

    “I’m sorry,” you say sheepishly.

    “Not at all. Being identical twins, it happens all the time.” She moves her cart to the side to let someone else get by. “My name is Fire Bloodclaw.”

    You shake hands with her, introducing yourself. Then a light bulb blinks on. “Fire Bloodclaw? The novelist? The one who wrote Empire of Jade?”

    She laughs a throaty laugh, “The same. You’ve read it?”

    “I haven’t. My assistant however raved about it. What brings you to town?”

    “Change of atmosphere.” She smiles, “I was actually hoping to run into you at some point. My sister is delighted with the work you’ve done for her; and, trust me, Jade is incredibly hard to please when it comes to work.”

    “Great to hear,” you smile, pleased at the compliment. You look around the store, realizing it was no place for a meeting. “Do you know Purr’s café?” you ask.

    “Who doesn’t?” Fire laughs.

    “Why don’t we meet there and talk about what you’re looking for?” you suggest.

    “Sounds great. Give me an hour to finish shopping?”

    An hour later, the two of you are settled into one of the booths at Purrsia’s place. Unsurprisingly, there is a tray of blissfully delicious tapas sitting between the two of you. Fire smiles, “I knew Purrsia when I was in college. She and her sister lived in the same house we did. She did all the cooking to help pay for her rent. It was lovely.”

    You grin, “I bet you ate better than the ramen noodle diet I lived on.”

    Fire laughs, “If you didn’t mind being an experiment for new recipes, yes…But the experiments didn’t always work out. Those were the nights when Tums were greatly in demand.” She smiles, “Now, on to why I was hoping to talk to you.”

    “Someplace to store your Tums?” you quip, making her chuckle again.

    “Not quite. I’m looking for a home of my own. I’ve been living with Jade, but her apartment really isn’t my style. She’s the penthouse apartment kind. I’m more the secluded dramatic type.”

    “So what kind of house are you looking for?” You pull out your ever present note book.

    “Something with a beautiful view. Private. When I lose myself in my work, I hate being distracted by petty things like time of day or last time I ate something. It needs to be soothing…and, I shamelessly admit, fairly luxurious in terms of comfort. I never know where I’ll end up writing.

    I need at least 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. And if you can squeeze it in, a new computer. State of the art please. My old one fried itself this morning, and I’m using Jade’s computer…something else that is not conducive to concentration. I'll need a decent entertainment center, and, of course, a library. I love stories in all forms.”

    “None of that is out of reach. Can you give me two weeks?”

    “Sure. I have a book tour coming up soon anyway. Oh, and I have 75,000 saved for this build.”

    “Excellent.” You reach for the check, only to have her lightly bat your hand away.

    “My treat,” Fire insists.

    Challenge Brief:
    75k budget (add gallery and lot cost together)
    2 bedrooms, 2 bath
    Secluded lot with a beautiful view
    Library
    State of the art laptop
    Decent entertainment center
    Luxurious surroundings

    Sim Challenge:
    Make Fire, who is a Hopeless Romantic, Friendly, and Flirty. Show her enjoying her new home.

    Room Challenge:
    Library - create a decked out library that any novelist will love. You have an additional 5,000 for this room if you enter the room challenge.

    You did see CMT and I did as well. As a matter of fact my Simmer Sister ♡ and I were both trying to figure out what the heck where to find our equivalent of the CMT time zone.

    @BuildnShare For challenge 26-The Novelist
    Can you just do the Room only? What would be the budget for the library as a Room on its own? Hopefully more than 5K because the best computer is 10k alone.

    I didn't finish it in the end anyway. Felt like playing not building today, and when I did go to build it was only because I decided to make a lot with loads of MicroMini sublots on it. Stressing myself out trying to figure out floor trims for my mansard roofs. :p
