    Hi @BuildnShare --- My game won't load, and it says it failed to launch and is a problem on their end.

    I can't get my build in by April 30 if that isn't fixed today. I've tried to get it to start, but I keep getting that message. :(

    Thanks,

    Coolsim

    Oh no! The app can be so buggy sometimes. Just go ahead and submit your entry when you can.

    CHALLENGE #172 - Spring Designer Showdown 2023
    FORUM ID: SerraNolwen
    ORIGIN ID: SerraNolwen
    LEVEL: Established? Still not sure
    SIMS 4 LOT NAME: Watermelon Home (Originally on the Bargain Bend lot)
    NEW LOT LINK: Gallery
    LOT COST: 2000
    GALLERY COST: 127,258
    TOTAL COST: 129,258 Simoleons
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: Imgur slideshow
    ENTRY DETAILS: I picked the bottom red egg for this challenge. The first thing that caught my eye was the cute watermelon mat, so I drew inspiration from that to build a pink, red and green house (with some neutrals, of course). The mix of very modern and more rustic items, bright red items and pastel flowers threw me for a loop for a moment, but I decided to try mixing the styles, so I built a more traditional looking home and decorated it as if some older fixtures and valuable furniture had been kept, while newer items were brought in and some parts of the house (mainly the kitchen and basement bathroom) were fully renovated. I tried to help everything fit nicely together still through the color scheme. I hope it worked!

    ENTRY DETAILS: I picked the bottom right teal egg for this challenge. i haven't opened the game since december and i've barely played in the last few years so i'm a little rusty. when i picked the teal egg i immediately thought farmhouse the concept i had in mind was a house that's been in the family for years and the family is renovating the house so some of the rooms look more upto date and others look slightly older i also wanted to make this house look lived in but i'm not to experienced with making lived in houses so any advice/criticism is very welcome!

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    The Flower Bunny loves eggs so much that he lives in a house with rooms that are all shaped with eggs! It's spring, and he just purchased some bees. He painted his "eggs" to match the yellow and black of the bees' coats. His old furniture was black, so he added some new yellow furniture, as well, and it's the perfect place for his new science baby in her yellow and black nursery.
    Note: I took the yellow egg.

    Friends from College

    You get up from your desk to greet your new clients, shaking hands firmly with the trio of young adults. Once everyone has a beverage and introduced themselves, you ask what they need to have built.
    "Well," says the dark-haired George Bennett, "we rented a small house during the last year of college, and we found we get along really well together. Just beginning our professional lives, we thought we would save money and go in on a new home together."
    "We love having common rooms, like the kitchen and a great room," added green-eyed Kelly Drew, "but we all also need our separate bedrooms and work spaces. We will all be working from home."
    "We also all love different colors in our separate spaces and more neutrals in the common areas," commented Andy Spears, who was lounging comfortably in jeans a tee shirt.
    "So what colors and what professions are we talking about?" you ask with a smile. So far everything is a bit vague.
    "The artist loves bright yellow, and the writer is into hues of blue like the ocean." Andy pauses.
    Kelly laughs. "And our fashion designer loves gray."
    Everyone joins in the laughter.
    "Are there any other common rooms that you specifically want? And does everyone need their own bathroom?" you asking, taking notes of their needs.
    "Ahh, no shared bathrooms! That was a mess we were trying to forget at the last house. And a half bath for guests," George says.
    "And we do need a laundry room." Andy thinks a few seconds. "I want a porch to hang out on, anyone else?"
    "Agreed," Kelly seconds. "Not sure if we can afford it, but we do movie nights every weekend, so maybe a separate media room?" The other two nod.
    "And that brings us to the budget. How much can we spend?" you ask cautiously.
    "We are all putting in $75,000, so a total of $225,000." George states matter-of-factly. "We have all done tons of side jobs through college so we could have a good start in life."
    "That is awesome! You three are miles ahead of the usually newly-graduated professional!" You smile at each one in turn. "I can have your new home ready in about a month. How does that sound?"
    The three young people cheer at you, and you all chat and laugh as you walk them out of the office. You vaguely envy their youth with a short sigh as you head back to your design desk.
    The Brief:
    *Any of the names could go for either/any gender.
    *You decide which profession and favorite color goes with which name.
    *Budget: $225,000, including the price of the lot you choose.
    *Three separate spaces including a bathroom, bedroom, and work room each, using the favorite colors in the decorating.
    *Common rooms, including a kitchen, a laundry room, a great room, a half bath, a porch, and a media room/home theatre, using more neutral colors.
    *Landscape the yard.

    Room Challenge:
    *create the media room for $25,000 or less.

    Sim Challenge:
    *create the trio of friends.
    *choose all traits/likes/dislikes.
    *please show all their clothes selections.


    Remember to include the hashtag #bns173 with your build or it will not be judged! Entries are due by Wednesday, May 31st, 2023, 23:5:59 New York Time/EST.

    This Lovely, base game-only home is ready for our three college grads to move in. There are 3 suites in this home, with ample space for working and living in each of the suites. The common areas are also spacious, allowing for group hangouts, and personal space. The home does feature a quiet room on the first floor, that can be used for reading, playing music, or whatever the quiet room needs to be used for. The yard is also spacious, with plenty of room to chill and enjoy the nice sunny days.
