    @AliSim19 I hope I can make it happen. Thankfully, the drop out and graduation rate in that class is high, and given that Millennials make me twitch, that's a positive. Also being a 50 year old tech, who has fallen on his face in the tech world, because it is now run by them and I am old and disposable, I have a particular hatred for that generation.

    I'm going to try to do something for this one. I haven't really even logged in for the past 2 weeks. My computer has been acting a fool and I can't afford to fix or give it what it needs. My hands re right now at a place where I plant half a dozen plants and they go numb on me and I log off. Having a dead news feed because we update something and kill half a dozen things, has me also discouraged as I don't want to have to go through all 300 of my uploads to see who commented on what has me kind of bleh, as well. I really wish they would fix that. I feel like a 🌺🌺🌺🌺 not communicating with people who have gone out of the way to comment on my stuff. [/quote]

    Give them time @Taoron !! From a personal standpoint I *totally* feel you viewpoint (seriously, I don’t *have* to give you a job and I’m not out of line expecting you to deliver on it when I do!) however the whole point of the article was that the guy had been pleasantly surprised at the awesomely good people he’d encountered, and certainly made me think twice about my unconscious generalisations. Fingers crossed It’s the same for you 🤞💖🤞
    💩💩💩💩 that both your pc and gallery are being a pain, I understand the frustration at knowing what the problem is but being totally unable to influence it......I don’t even have any positive words that might read as be supportive 😕 As for the physical pain, well that just sucks 😕
    The only thing I can offer is that we will totally appreciate it If/when you can get back
    to full Sim-speed....both the forums and the gallery are worse off for your absence!

    Sending you Rosemow levels hugs!!!

    Mmm, now my quote box is mental, I’m sure I left all that in there! Hopefully the post still makes sense!!

    @cmbaker16 It's all listed in the post for the Challenge.

    @AliSim19 LOL Indeed. Yeah. I have a few who I adore. Good people. I try not to generalize. I've just had a couple of folks say "Okay Boomer" at me. I'm not even a Boomer. LOL I do a lot of theater in colleges and I also know too many people who can't see the forest for the iPhone.

    Greetings from Santorini (I wish). The exteriors feel cohesive but I think figuring out the interiors will be a #$%#@. It's an old monastery that's been converted to luxury accomidations.

    Your WIP is looking great! @wendyology :) Very nice design! It is very nice you have based the design of it as an old Monastery that is now a home.
  • AlJayAlJay Posts: 854 Member
    Hey @Taoron I think I would like to give this one a try if I could reserve "The Sand Bar" that would be great.
    @wendyology I feel the same way as you. I started building and my exterior looks satisfactory, but making the inside work will require some thought. Yours looks great BTW! I have been enjoying creeping this thread just to see all of the fabulous creations that you guys are all making :)

There is one bedroom with en-suite, an eat-in kitchen, two sitting rooms, an office and a nice upstairs balcony for relaxing and playing chess. We mustn't forget to mention there is also a chicken coop.

    @JojoMOMSTER Your house is so intriguing!

    @Taoron I do intend on finishing my house, but I looks like I won't make the deadline (family stuff, nothing horrible just time consuming.)

    ENTRY DETAILS: Built on "The Sand Bar" in Sulani, this was a type of build that I have never done before so it was definitely a challenge, especially the interior (corridor after corridor) I felt a little bit like a fish out of water. It was a fun challenge though! Thanks @Taoron I hope it meets the criteria.

    Life by the Sea is a very lovely Greek home! @AlJay :) Very beautiful exterior design! The white colours of the exterior and blue windows looks lovely! Very nice outdoors living, dining and pool patio! Sims will enjoy dining outdoors, or sitting on the sofa and armchairs resting and chatting.The fountains there and on the balcony are very nice and the flowers are lovely on the home edges , Very lovely furnishing and layout of the interior! The white and blue colour scheme is very nice! The flowers are pretty on the dining table and the patterned wall tiling in the kitchen gives a lovely look to the room! Each of the rooms are very nice! Your wall art that you have created is beautiful! It suits the home so very well! Very nice balconies to enjoy sitting and looking out at the views, relaxing in the hot tub or have fun playing chess.
    It is a very great Greek home! :)

    ENTRY DETAILS: This build is on the Tangled Flat Lot. It is very colorful with patterned tiles and peachy stucco. There are balconies and courtyards and a cellar to store wine and oil and food. Along the side of the house runs a gutter to wash away waste- A take on "modern ancient plumbing" The dining room is meant for men only- keeping with history. There is also a bed tucked under the stairs to the cellar for a servant.

    Thank you rosemow, I think I fixed it, now if I could just get a couple of pictures posted. Not sure if it's the computer or my brain being tempermental
  • rosemowrosemow Posts: 155,166 Member
    Your Greek home is lovely! @rikaocean :) Very nice exterior design and the peach exterior colour is pretty! Very nice patios and balconies! The courtyard is very nice! Sims will enjoy sitting there reading books. The interior furnishings and layout is very nice! The floor tiling gives a very special look to the rooms! The candles in the rooms are pretty! It is a great touch that there is a bed nook behind the stairs for a servant. Very nice bathtub area with the plants and bamboo on the sides.
    It is a very nice Greek home :)

    This build kinda drove me mad...I started out with traditional an Ancient Greek design, flipped to modern Greek, swapped back....ended up with a mixture of the two, sort of ancient Greek with some liberties taken for modern life and Sims playabilty. I had great fun with all of it though, so thank you @Taoron for an excellent challenge <3

    So here we have a Sims friendly version of an Ancient Greek home for a wealthy family....includes a beautiful courtyard, Andron & Gynaeceum (separate male and female day time living quarters), Greek dining room, a Bath House, 4 bedrooms to sleep 8 sims, Look Out Tower (to watch for Odysseus coming home!), a kitchen garden and an Infinity Pool.
    (For the practicalities of Sims life it also has a stove and a fridge plus a a total of 4 bathrooms)
