    Hi guys!

    I already announced this to @BuildnShare on Twitter, but as some of you here are not on that platform I'll do a quick post here too. I know a few of you guys have been hoping I'd get the build done on time, but alas, the build got the better of me! I've decided to throw in the towel on the comp, but not the build :joy:

    I had a set back where the game froze and I lost 2 hours of progress. That was also a mental blow.

    As I was working on the landscaping I could feel myself stressing out. "Get it done! Just get something done!". Now that's where I had to stop myself. I know that when I reach that point, I am at a place where I will be rushing just to meet the deadline. That means the build will not be up to my normal standards. From what I have seen of the amazing entries so far, nothing less than my absolute best would cut it :heart:

    So instead of stressing to get it done, I am going to take a break and a breath, and then finish this build in my own time :blush: I will do it justice, and make sure it is absolutely amazing!

    Sorry again for not being able to meet the deadline BuildnShare. You were so unbelievable generous to give me extra time :heart:

    Good luck to you all!

    I'll be back another time. And maybe even make the deadline :joy:

    EDIT: As a bonus, here's a little peak at how far I got :blush:

    CHALLENGE #96 A Truth Universally Acknowledged
    FORUM ID:audrhll
    ORIGIN ID:audrhll
    LEVEL: starting out- my first build, and my first time using imgur, uploading and linking stuff, etc. As you can see, there were still things I haven't figured out... help! :)
    LOT: Hartfield (in gallery under my ID name) I can't figure out how/where to link it here
    LOT COST:8500.00
    LOT NAME: Twin Oracle Point
    BUILD COST:491,499.00
    TOTAL COST: 499,999.00
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://imgur.com/a/9JKr7gB

    ENTRY DETAILS: Going into this, I thought I had a pretty good grasp on the regency style, but I soon realized I was jumbling up quite a few different "literary time periods" in my mind.. E.M. Forster, Jane Austen, P.G. Wodehouse, John Fowles... However, I figured Jane is probably an anglophile at heart, and has room for more than just Jane Austen in her home :) Plus, I pictured her live-in nurse as a much younger, more modern girl, so I had to make her living space something that she would enjoy. Overall, I didn't want something too imposing- I wanted more of a country feel for Hartfield; something that might fit into a small village.. if Newcrest were to qualify as a small village.


    I made the formal spaces on the first floor, and decided to give Jane a separate living space near the library and study. The modest amount of money" was inherited from her father, who was a bit of an eccentric, and quite a collector of "curiosities".. . which she also inherited. I imagine she'll spend quite a bit of time sneaking across the hall to filch books to read in bed, or to pore over some rare shell or piece of seaweed in the study.

    The upstairs space is mostly for guest use... so, there are a few more TVs up there than you'll find on the first floor. There are still plenty of spaces for curling up with a good book, tho! And Beatrice, the nurse, is tickled pink with her mod cons... she's really more of a Stephen King fan, if she's going to be honest.

    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: yes, please!

    CREDIT FOR CC/RECOLORS: This was hard.. I'm a big ol' softie for cc. But I limited myself to rugs and my garden pavers. I also used cc for the dress that Sara is wearing in the garden, but I didn't mention that, since she's really not part of the challenge.. I just wanted to make her! Both are from MTS, the floor pavers are are by Blackgryffin (old grassy floor pavement) and the rugs are from nafSims (Art Deco & Art Nouveau Rugs and Colors & Stripes Rugs) and BibiDoubleZero (Animal Rugs). Also, I used MOO and resizing throughout the build.

    TWITTER TAG: I don't really twit.
    FACEBOOK PROFILE: I think I had one of those.. at some point long ago....
    TUMBLR LINK: umm.. yeah. not really.

    @TresaofPern I will of course be sharing it when it's completed yes! :blush: If you follow me on the gallery, or onTwitter, or my showcase here on the forums, then you will see it when it's ready :heart: I will be taking a little break from it right now, to start on a seasons build , but then I plan on getting back to it with fresh eyes!

    @BuildnShare Thanks guys :blush: I don't mind personally, as my motivation is not winning the challenge, but trying new things, and a regency home struck me straight away as it is something I have yet to do. So thank you for that! I love this build very much :heart:

    ENTRY DETAILS: I have done a lot of building in Sims 3, but this is my first build in 4. (And probably my last, lol!)

    I was drawn by the idea of the classic regency style. I did a lot of research and looked at lots of pictures online. I wanted to be as historically accurate as possible, within the limitations of the game. So my “bath” rooms are separated from the toilet rooms, which are mostly tucked away under staircases. And there are no modern conveniences in the kitchen or anywhere else.

    My build is based on a terraced house, which is why there are no windows on either side. So the backyard garden is divided into two parts, the formal flower garden for relaxing and a separate vegetable and herb garden area which leads into the kitchen entrance.

    ENTRY DETAILS: I had more fun with this than I should have.. originally I thought Daisy Lee had passed away peacefully in her sleep after a long and productive life.. But Rabid Rodent Fever was just too tempting!

    Albert Lee (Bertie to his friends) is now the owner of a small garden in Brindleton Bay; down near the wharf, where they've lived ever since Bertie retired.. Who knew that rodents might be an issue? The garden has small water feature with a bridge path, leading to a picnic area, and a bench where Bertie and Daisy's ghost can sometimes be seen canoodling. There are also some gnome statues, to remind Daisy of her garden back home and a bird feeder where they can watch the birds.

    The park seems to be a big success; I had trouble taking pictures on their first visit- several townsfolk wanted to get in the picture, too!

    Things I Learned...Terrain Paint doesn't transfer from a larger lot to a smaller lot. (If it can I have no clue how)

    I wanted my Lot to be a park and to be on a 20x20 lot in Windenburg. I was going to "fake" it by just building a 20x15 and filling the rest with CC stone tiles that look like the surrounding area.

    ls61ahj.jpg

    I then thought "Well that's not a proper build for the challenge" so I took my mostly finished build and moved it to a lot in Newcrest.
    Ooops terrain paint disappeared.

    Vlh0IIt.jpg

    Well I gave up trying to remake it in Newcrest. Also I still wanted the vibe of ruins that my first lot had. So like Trashdocka I chose Ancient ruins. Downside is I can't figure how to change the lot to Park (game says no can do)

    I would like to keep the CC I have that makes it a park even if it won't be. How do I share the build with a link here? Since the Gallery won't show it on the official web page I have no clue how .

    I mistakenly thought I could save to the gallery since others apparently can, but it seems to be permanently stuck trying. I'm likely going to have to reboot my laptop to get it unstuck, which means losing a lot of work. Not sure I want to start over, so I might just skip this challenge.

    @TresaofPern I'm not sure if it's the same thing I am experiencing, but I can't access the gallery at all. Just save your work offline if you can. Hang in there. I'm sure it will be working sooner or later. :)

    I'm seeing all sorts of Tweets from folks with Gallery issues. Best theory is there are changes being made to get it ready for Seasons. I'm beginning to think the builds made either after the game or patch drops might be very different.
  • SimTresaSimTresa Posts: 2,189 Member
    @itguyinsc, it turns out I did have a recent enough save not to lose anything, so I was able to reopen the game and save to my library.

    You can either share the tray files or use the Facebook or Twitter share option and get a link that way.
