    I'm also having a weird issue. Every time I rotate or move a room everything not attached to a wall either gets left behind or disappears. No MOO involved.

    That happens to me as well! Maybe it's another bug?

    I've been having lots of problems like that too. Wallpaper disappearing when I change one thing, or furniture disappearing when a wall is changed (stuff that's NOT highlighted) No MOO involved in tons of problems I've experienced :disappointed: It's crazy and putting a lot of extra work on me, having to replace and redo everything.
    Money can't buy you happiness
    but it can buy The Sims
    which is pretty much
    the same thing

    Oddly enough, moving things after the roof is on seems to be safe. Or it could be a coincidence.

    I had the same issue, but I was using Moo. I moved my entire lot, by just one square to the right, and not only did things disappear, but they also dropped through the floor. Very frustrating indeed.

    That reminds me, I also had something apparently fall through the floor when moving the house. Thought I was imagining things and quickly checked to make sure there wasn't actually something under the house.

    CHALLENGE #99 Back To Their Roots
    FORUM ID: JHGKJHGKJH
    ORIGIN ID: kjhgkjgkjhgk
    LEVEL: established
    LOT: Three Oaks
    LOT COST: 3.500
    LOT NAME: Coorinenberg Cottage
    BUILD COST: 79.843
    TOTAL COST: 83.343

    ENTRY DETAILS: Honestly I struggled with this challenge a lot. Budgetwise and stylewise. Never have I ever torn down so many buildings. :)
    In the end, I went for a New England Style Stone Cottage in rural Windenburg. Simple life - no tv, no dryer. :) Bookcases, a gametable and a garden to tend. I bet landscaping took half of the budget. For the interiors I went for a rustic country design with a lot of white painted pillars and ceiling beams. And I wanted the feel of an old house. Creaking floorboards, odd niches and nooks and a lot of rough plaster.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: always welcome!

    Think I'm about burned out on buildings, I keep feeling like I either don't have any ideas or am just repeating myself. This last one got redone yet again in an effort to bring the cost down so I can actually do the garden and landscaping, and I'm still not really happy with it, especially the living room. Maybe I should just do the room and sim challenges this time.

    Funny, I felt the same when starting the build. Had a great idea, but had to let go of it budgetwise.
    Then I started over and over and over again and after a while it hit me while building a stone cottage was born.

    Repetition is a major part of building I think. In the end, it is always some kind of house with a roof, windows and doors. ;)
    But sometime a brilliant idea sparks while repeating. Go on, @TresaofPern. Maybe, if you start the room chall you find yourself with the wish to make your room into a house. :)

    @TresaofPern , doing a Google image search on, say, "farmhouse" may spark your creative imagination! Also, it's fine to take a break sometimes, if you need to.

    @TresaofPern I don't always get the inspiration to build for the challenge myself. I noticed I have been entering maybe every other one. That's why I like buildnshare, because I can do the ones that really spark my interest and I feel I can create something I am happy with.

    I tried a few floor plans for this one but didn't like any of them. So this may be one I skip. Unless I can find something to make me happy enough to continue. :p

    Thanks I did think about just doing the room challenge, but I also want to do the sim challenge. I did see a country kitchen I want to try building, it just likely won't fit the floorplan I have without messing up my budget.

    Think I might give it one more try... While I was outside this morning I actually had an inspiration for that living room. Just hav eto see if I can pull it off with the current layout without it looking out of place or awkward.

    Me neither - and I had so much trouble last week with imgur too. I switched to Google Photos. Works like a charm...

    @nicolethebowl - we would appreciate it if you would not use post image, the pop ups can be, ummm, interesting. If you can't get your images up any other way, we will, of course, judge your entry this time around. @Laireen35's suggestion of Google Photo's is a great one, or there is picassa or flickr.

    As far as I know Google Photos IS Picasa... Bc I tried to login to my picasa account and it took me to Google Photos...
