    Will a pastel goth theme work?
  • withlovejulienwithlovejulien Posts: 548 Member
    @SyddyB206 Does a pastel goth theme ever not work? :smile:

    Great looks!

    @popettypop2012 Love your wall treatments and the lovely deep colors on the exterior! And the little flower beds around the trees.

    @folala Love how you handled the little second floor overhang by turning it into a side door with a sitting nook. Great flower borders and the car is a great touch!

    @meaganjo What a large kitchen! Lovely country feel and wonderful backyard! Terrain paint looks great!

    Thank you @MeaganJo and @withlovejulien your entries are really lovely.

    I had so much trouble trying to make the front of the house into something I'm happy with. I wish I could add more windows:)

    ENTRY DETAILS: I wanted to do something different- so I went with the traditional floorplan stylings of an ancient Roman villa but designed for a more modern empire. I used the pastel sun to represent the rising sun that the owner of this home feels their empire to be experiencing but I also leaned heavily on deeper orange throughout the decor to represent the setting sun as most Empires are already in decline when they perceive themselves to be at their height. In traditional Roman villas doorways were often just covered with curtains rather than true doors and that is the tact I have taken here as well- so yes, the curtain hung doorways are on purpose, lol. The fourth bedroom in this build is for a live in servant and is in the basement attached to the kitchen- it has an ensuite bath. There are more notes with the pictures on Facebook.

    SIM: NA

    ROOM: NA

    @MeaganJo Thanks- I really wanted to do something different since there weren't a lot of specs this time and plenty of money- I didn't even spend it all! LOL!

  • RawlaRawla Posts: 7,272 Member
    I managed to take a few pictures, but since most of it is still unfinished, I will not be entering this time. It was great fun while it lasted. That'll teach me to start late. I look forward to seeing what the next challenge will be. :blush:

    ENTRY DETAILS: I had a really hard time doing this. Originally I was going to make it a very traditional bright pastel. Then I thought about Pastel Goth. It had 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.

    @JasonAnthonySterling Love all the columns and the frieze!

    @e1990r great garage! Lovely CC!

    @SyddyB206 The darker colors complement the pastels nicely! Love the black and white look of the front!

    #BnS69 - Mr Boddy's Mansion

    You stare at your current client in confusion.

    "I'm sorry. I must have misheard you. The person who wants me to build them a house is...deceased?"

    Michael Ryunoten, attorney and happy client, nods a bit ruefully.

    "I know this seems a little odd. And normally, its not a case I would handle. However Mr. Boddy was my very first client when I was starting out in law and I continued to handle his transactions even after I transitioned to business law. When we made out his will, he was very specific about what he wanted. And very insistent."

    "Ok. And what exactly is it he wanted?" you inquire, feeling more than a little hesitant about this.

    "He wants a mansion built to some unusual specifications." He pulls out a document. "Mr. Boddy demands that his mansion be at least 2 stories. The first floor is to contain an entrance hall, leading to a central foyer. Off of this central foyer he requires a kitchen, dining room, lounge, ballroom, conservatory, billiard room, library and study. All of these are to be separate rooms. There is to be a fireplace in each of these rooms except the kitchen and conservatory. The conservatory must contain a pool. It doesn't have to be big, it simply has to be there and useable. The kitchen must have low end appliances."

    You lower your pen in astonishment and disappointment. "Michael that doesn't make any sense!" you protest. "Why low end appliances?"

    He gives you a regretful smile, "I am not at liberty to explain. I'm truly sorry."

    He clears his throat and resumes reading. "Upstairs there are to be no less than 6 bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms, to be outfitted accordingly. However there is to be only 1 single bed in 2 of the rooms."

    Suspicious now, you ask "Really Mike. You're pulling my leg now. You cant be serious."

    "I'm very serious." He hands you the pertinent section of the will so you can read it for yourself.

    "Each bedroom is to be decorated in one of 6 colors: red, purple, blue, green, yellow, white."

    "It doesn't mention here what kind of style he wants the house built in," you observe.

    "He didn't care." Mike response, leaning back in his chair a little. "You have free reign. The total budget for the house is 300k."

    "Nice." You say, dubiously. Such a strange list of requirements is more than a little...disconcerting.

    "And of course there's your fee." Mike gives you a number that makes your jaw drop. The amount of money being offered would pretty much leave you debt free for the next five years, and pay for that trip to Al Simhara you've been wanting! Even if you are suspicious, its hard to say no to that kind of freedom.



    Budget: 300k
    Any architectural style you wish
    6 bedrooms, with baths
    Each bedroom decorated in either red, blue, purple, white, yellow or green
    2 story mansion
    Kitchen with low end appliances
    Entrance Hall
    Billiards Room
    Conservatory with pool
    All rooms must have doors
    All first floor rooms must have fireplaces except the conservatory and the kitchen
    Bonus points for additional methods of potential death from the other expansions.

    Room Challenge
    Create any of the rooms listed on the brief in whichever style you wish. You have $16,000 to play with.

    Sim Challege

    Play clue with Mr. Boddy's guests!

    Mr. Boddy is a vengeful ghost out to get the sims he feels had a hand in his death. So he invites them to the newly built mansion. Rules are simple: First determine order of play. Miss Scarlett always goes first. Then roll a dice to determine who goes next. Once order of play is established, roll for the room Miss Scarlett is sent to. All doors are to be locked between dice rolls. No wandering sims. You have 8 sim hours to kill the sim in that room with the rooms method of death. Example: Miss 🌺🌺🌺🌺 gets sent to the observatory. You have 8 hours to drown her in the pool. After the 8 hours, you can let her out of the pool but she must stay in the observatory until her next turn.

    After the 8 hours of potential death are up, each sim can amuse themselves or fill whatever needs are available to fill in that room. They may not leave the room till their next turn though. You may have turns concurrently. Example: Miss 🌺🌺🌺🌺 has to drown, so you lock her in the pool. You can then roll for the next sim and send them to the room of their potential death. You may have multiple sims in the same room, attempting to die the same way. If you wish to drag out the game play, you can insert a bonus round and give 1 sim the chance to recover their needs to keep them going longer.

    The winner and inheritor of the estate is the last surviving Sim. They just have to live with the ghost of the murderous Mr. Boddy for the rest of their lives.

    Great challenge, saw this one in the other forum and took a guess that itll come tou the sims 4 so I got mine started already haha.

    My questions is does sims 4 have a billiard table, cuz I couldn't find one, and does the low quality appliances have to be THE worst or pretty bad?
  • BuildnShareBuildnShare Posts: 3,346 Member
    @WiggleyTuff - Glad you are happy that we bought this challenge over, it looked so fun!! All I can say is be creative with the billiards table ;) And as for the appliances, we'll leave that up to you.....

    Made a change to the brief, the budget has been increased by $50,000 :tongue:
  • WiggleyTuffWiggleyTuff Posts: 594 Member
    Hahah that increase feels better cuz my exterior cost around 100k-150k xD
  • WiggleyTuffWiggleyTuff Posts: 594 Member
    So here I am asking a new question, does the whole bedroom be in one color or should the majority, for example, be white?
