    Well...crapcakes. I'm locked out of my Wordpress account, and their account recovery page didn't give me a time frame for when (or if) I'd get it back. :/ Looks like I'm sitting out another round. :(

    EDIT: Thanks so much for the extension, @BuildnShare ! Slideshow link will be up ASAP - getting Wordpress sorted out now. <3

    Yikes! I'm so sorry you're locked out. @SimsIslandheart. Your one screenshot looked great and I'm sure the rest of the build is great.

    I see that your build is already uploaded to the gallery, so we're happy to give you an extension until you hear back from Wordpress if you like. Just go ahead and fill out an entry post with your build link and add the showcase link when you have things sorted with them :)

    Ready for a blast from the past? We are firing up the WAYBACK MACHINE and dusting off a vintage Sims 3 challenge from Week 50 - the very first year of the Sims 3 BuildnShare challenge. Buckle up and go back in time with us!

    You weren't sure where to look. The couple in front of you seemed to have forgotten you were there. Sitting in front of you on the opposite couch were The Meronas, Carlos and Betty. Newlyweds, of course. They were entwined around each other now, Betty in Carlos's lap.

    It started with some simple affectionate patting as they started to explain how they had decided to have a modest wedding and set that money aside to have a honeymoon retreat built. "Somewhere romantic," Betty had said as Carlos rubbed her knee.

    After informing you that they wanted a secluded, romantic hideaway and how they only had a budget of 35,000 simoleans, you looked down to jot down some notes. By the time you looked back up, Betty was in Carlos' lap and they were in full "make out" mode.

    You tried clearing your throat softly at first, but they continued. After a few more moments, you decided to just get up and leave them alone for a bit.

    Brief:
    • Budget: 35,000 [gallery cost]
    • Size: No larger than 30x20 lot
    • 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath
    • Be sure to pick a lot that will work well for a romantic getaway
    • Lot cost is not a factor in this challenge.

    Sim Challenge:
    Create Carlos and Betty Merona as sims and take pictures of them on their honeymoon! Share their traits and outfits as well as candid shots with us.

    Room Challenge:
    Carlos and Betty want a cozy dining room for romantic dinners! Budget: 10,000

    $35,000 budget :D *wipes sweaty forehead*
    @BuildnShare - are rental lots in Granite Falls and Selvadorada allowed for the Love Shack?
    What have I been up to lately? Cerrydd / #cerrydd in the gallery

    @BuildnShare, seeing the cost of alI the other entries I think I misunderstood the total cost in the brief. So, sadly, my duplex is over budget :(
    Should I fix that?
    I could easily change the TVs for cheaper ones.

    @BuildnShare can we use the lots from the vacation worlds? and if so, how do we get the price for them? They can't be made residential to get the lot cost.

    @Cerrydd just re read your comment, I see we are in the same mind set lol.

    Where do I look for the Original " Sims 3 challenge from Week 50 - the very first year of the Sims 3 BuildnShare challenge" Entries ? This would be interesting to see....

    Also a Romantic hideaway- This does not have to be tropical,or beach like ? right, It can be a snowy by the fire place kind of thing or something else..?

    Oh, I'm excited, I used to do some sims3 builds for this challenge, but I think I never did one Sims4.

    My question is: does the shack have to have dining, kitchen and living room?

    Yes, if you can. That way you don't lose points for not following the challenge requirements :)

    Yes - good question! I'll make a change in the entry form to show that lot cost is not a factor in this challenge so that those can be used.

    If it is not listed in the challenge description or brief, it's not technically required. But the judges will be looking for an overall functional lot, so as much of that as you can include the better.

    Woo! I just netted another $2000 for landscaping! <3 Thanks for eliminating the lot cost issue! <3
  • SimTresaSimTresa Posts: 2,134 Member
    With that increase, I might just move my build. I like it, and I like the current lot, but it doesn't give me much room for landscaping.

    Is the cost of the lot counted in the 35,000 budget?

    ENTRY DETAILS: This is the perfect place for that high paced city living couple to come to recharge their romance while unplugging from their everyday life. The one bedroom is detached from the rest of the house creating a type of intimacy and privacy any couple would crave. While you'll be spending most of the time in the bedroom there is a quaint kitchen with everything you'll need to refuel you for other activities. The spa like bathroom is the perfect place for a candle lit soak, to relieve those sore muscles. A cozy living space is ideal to Netflix and chill or if you'd rather slow dance to your favorite Babyface song. All in all this getaway is just what every couples should experience once in their relationship.
