    I'm having a problem with the family i created for this challenge. It says I'm using something from a game pack (Hangout or something like that) but no matter how many times I go over each family members clothing/hair/accessories etc. I cannot for the life of me figure out what isn't base game. Any tips on how to locate the culprit?
    Looking at them in the gallery in game select the pack icon. It will show you everything that came with that pack. There should be a button on the far right. It will say something like items you had used from this pack. Once you select that it will show you the item that you are using in your upload .

    ENTRY DETAILS: This is my official entry; I named my lot 313 Flamengo Way and moved a family into it... the family i built for this challenge but not to enter into the Sim competition tho... they seem to love the home i built for them... I am slowly learning everything here... especially the values and taking proper photos without grid lines... but it is still a fun and interesting challenges. I don't really know what to say this time around because *phew!! I've been working hard trying to build this the right way... hopefully I did well... otherwise... I love learning and I love these challenges because I have learned so much and... still learning too. PS.. the original entry I had previously deleted because it really needed work.

    @pronterus - if I put my submission in the wrong category, I apologize. I have not done many builds, I mostly download builds. I worked 2 days on this and it took me a long time. I watched some YouTube videos from The Sim Supply to figure some things out. If the judges feel that this should go into the Established category, then please change it. Thank you and sorry for the confusion.

    Catch up time!
    Congratulations to @gmcrozier @leochick123 and @Kementari for the favs

    @maryjane2joe thanks so much for the kind words about my couple and unfinished restaurant! Your house is just charming! What a wonderfully unique living room and comfy chic decor all around. Love that natural pool too - and the pink flamingos! I love pink flamingos!
    @pronterus - Gorgeous restaurant. Love the landscaping and the outdoor dining areas and the wonderful register counter and sitting areas! Beautiful neighborhood too. And on your house you really outdid yourself. What a fun and fabulous house! I am so impressed you did all of that with just basegame and on that budget!!
    @stscirius - Wonderful eatery! Love the sharp clean lines and splashes of red. And what a fabulous outdoor eating area!
    @gmcrozier - What a great look to the restaurant building with the wood and green plaster and the colorful inside is such eye candy. Very cool! Your house is so sleek and stunning. Love the open space and the kitchen and that detached patio is awesome!
    @shadowfairy74 - really gorgeous flower and fountain work in your restaurant. Love those hollyhocks! Your house has some wonderful roofwork and I love that patio pool! Your family is also pretty great! That little girl is especially adorable!
    @vaguenightmare - Fantastic industrial bar and really love the big bright prints on the walls and the colors you chose. Cool dividing wall as well!
    @msleo - lovely venue and I think the wallpaper you chose for the outside of the build creates an awesome effect! Wish I'd thought of it!
    @kittkat7147 - Gorgeous! Love the back patio and those high back chairs with the oversized wall hangings. Beautiful color choices. Just an all around chic build!
    @kementari - Just stunning. Completely wowed with the wonderful oversized art and brick and the gorgeous covered patio. Beautiful work! Very realistic!
    @caramellibra29 - Absolutely adorable restaurant couple. Very cool. You always get the best shots as well. And I especially loved those matching jammies! The Woodson family completely rocks too. You always get so much character in their faces..really love the mom!
    @abelhina35 - Wow..love the french brick with the Asian entrance! And OMG a sushi bar - how cool is that? Beautiful restaurant/awesome work!
    @nineteen80sims - what a wonderful basegame home! Love the bold solid colors and the carport! Very nice!
    @euphorialqueen - Beautiful kitchen, love the counter seating but especially love the pig!! Your Blanders family is also fantastic. That teenage daughter is quite the stunner!
    @jhgkjhgkjh - Stunning lines to that home! Just beautiful. Love that clean fenceless patio too!
    @kilra0 - great sharp lines and what a wonderful sand garden, but what I really loved were your interiors. That living room is to die for! All the rooms and patio are gorgeous! Your Kitchen is just beautiful. Love the blue walls with the white and the corner tables as cabinets and especially the hall table work space. Very stunning.
    @josieanglin - wonderfully functional kitchen and love the angle and the angled island counter. Very cool!
    @Valuzza90 - Very pretty country kitchen. Great clutter and wall decorations. Great working space! That stove area rocks!
    @itguyinsc - What a fantastic design. Wonderful roof, wonderful home. I really like that basement bedroom set up and I want that bathroom in my home!
    @PV13 - Wonderful home! And what a great lot for it. Love that angled area and the patio with the cut out walls. I especially love that kitchen/dining room/living room area. Gorgeous!
    @masajo wow - what a fantastic fresh look. It's so beautifully unique. Love it!! Love the outside/inside/and your landscaping is always to die for. Awesome! (killer patios too btw)
    @soulgal7 - What a fantastic first entry! Wonderful home! I love everything about it! Fantastic job!

    Phew!

    My house is being playtested. It flunked the toddler room test. Lets see if I can get it working right before deadline.
    AND as always, if I somehow missed you, it was totally unintentional. AND I may never go back that far to comment again..haha!

    @SoulGal7 No need to apologize for that! It's just my opinion that your house should be a level higher. :)

    @Ainsleyf Thanks for the comments :) That's a lot of tags!

    No need to apologize at all! We would agree with @pronterus though that your skill level looks appropriate for entering in the Established category. If you feel comfortable with that, you can edit your entry to change your level. Welcome to BuildnShare! We're so happy that you chose us for your first building challenge :)

    ENTRY DETAILS: Well, the house was built with an established family in mind, and I hope you see a little of their personality and story within the walls. A family is never perfect, and this one for sure isn't. I was so excited building this for them though, and given an opportunity to clutter it up the way I like lol! Thanks for this challenge, back to basics was really cool to do. I did miss a lot of my usual furniture, but I guess that's the point of the challenge! I ended up really loving it, and will be moving one of my families into it in the future. Please tell me what you think!

    Question:After using MOO on a build, I've heard objects can "sink"
    when uploaded from the gallery:
    *how do I test it to see if my objects stayed put?
    *Is there a way to keep them in place?
  • PiratePirate Posts: 62 Member
    I've just decided from now on, when I participate in Build Challenges, I only browse contest entries AFTER entering mine! I am continuously blown away by what people come up with! AMAZING!

    I remember there being problems with this early on, but I think it's been resolved with patches. Here's an EA bug report thread that seems to confirm that: https://answers.ea.com/t5/Bug-Reports/Build-Objects-Shift-Position-with-MOO-On-In-Certain-Locations/td-p/4446923

    Is anyone else still have problems with Gallery lots that use MOO?
