26th Jul 2007, 4:26 PM
You need

Name of builder/designer(s):
Affordable: Yes/No (Is it under 1500 simoleons)

• And I need you and your Sim(s) to build and decorate a bedroom with at lease one bed, end table, dresser, decoration, and a door and window.
• Please include 2-4 pictures with the builder/designer(s) and the room.

And the Affordable is it like cheap or expensive? It won't count towards anything :D. Oo yeah I meant the bedroom, lol :anime:

Hey, this looks awesome! I've been waiting for a house contest for aaages, ill see if I can join :D

27th Jul 2007, 12:31 PM
I would love to enter but I'm not sure about the NO PAY items. I have 25,000 files in my downloads folder and there is no way I can remember which ones were donation items, I can remember some but not all. Would we get disqualified if we used them?

Also as I didn't actually PAY for alot of them do they still count as PAY items? :P

SimsArtThat_SC
27th Jul 2007, 1:12 PM
For the app, the entire bedroom needs to be under 1500? lol, or each single item? Oh wait...I think you mean everything can be very expensive too? Confused here also....and ditto what romyhorse said! Why "no pay" items, all things considered? And you want the pictures to show the builder/designer sims also or just one shot of them and the rest of only the room?

Also it sounds like apps will be judged as a round, is that the case?

I am full of questions, sorry! :D

ChrstyFarie07_SC
27th Jul 2007, 3:39 PM
Lol, ok I'll change the rule with th no pay item, unless you really bought them and he bedroom doesn't need to be under, it can be very expensive :D.

27th Jul 2007, 5:28 PM
oo yay i can join now that you took away the no pay items rule. i was thinking pretty much the same thing as romyhorse; with so many downloads i dont remember which ones are pay because i didn't actually pay for any of them. :) i'll be back later with an app!

ChrstyFarie07_SC

One of the EPs added a function so you could check the lot value in buy/build mode (click on icon in top left corner). If you build the room and check the value then decorate it and check the value again the difference is the cost of the room.

I was wondering what is the 2nd round? I would like to start working on it this weekend.
Do we just design bathroom in the same way as we did bedroom in the application round? Or is there some other rules?

Quick question about round 1: The room has to be square? No diagonal walls?

ChrstyFarie07_SC
4th Aug 2007, 7:14 PM
As long as it has four walls and is 9x9.

Sorry, I'm a little late here ^_^.
But ok anyway...

You will be judged with comments and scores.
And a few towels can be found in the OFB EP, I think (i don't have OFB). But if you don't have it then some can be found here http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=209360.

So other than those requirements, we can do anything we want? Cool!

If quality is the vast majority of the score, does quality include "how much work we put into it"? And by quality, do you mean value? Just wondering what "quality" will mean to the judges, because that's a huge part of the scores :) And creativity is not such a big part of the scores? hmmm

and we can ONLY have those colors?

thanks!

Edit: one more thing (sorry lol) when Magnoliae asked if applications will be scored and you said yes...I'm confused...you told me they wouldn't be.

When does this round end? thanks again! :)

but now look at it its the best bathroom ever
http://i18.tinypic.com/66ynk8n.jpg

9x9 bathroom


( tell me if i missed anything out its just i dont understand this round)
i used the colours blue white and brown

Vicci
5th Aug 2007, 1:40 AM
Sounds good, though 9x9 is a massive space, don't think I've ever built one so big! Just a couple of questions, Does our Sim need to be in the picture, and How many pictures are we allowed?

ChrstyFarie07_SC
5th Aug 2007, 4:30 PM
satsoveranddone Um, maybe try again, if it doesn't work I'll try to look for some/
alexisaige Yup, add as many pictures as you like ^_^.
SimArtThat Yes "how much work you put in it" is included in it. Quality is huge, cause will you need decorate good with nice stuff in there. You just need to have the colors in there, you can add any other ones. Oh oops, I thought she ask about round 1, application won't be ^_^, I am stupid. Its ends on the tenth, yeah its shortish ^_^.
satsoveranddone Is that whole thing the bathroom? If so, I may change the size of the room ^_^.
Vicci Yeah, I may change it ^_^. No you sim(s) doesn't need to be in there, but if want then yes ^_^. As many pictures as you want.

Round 2


Today you will be decorating a wonder yet big living room that is, yes a box shaped! It will be a 17x10 and please have a least a couch, coffee table, TV, and decoration.
-You also need the following colors in there:
• Green
• Brown
• White


You will be judged on you will also be judged on creativity, quality, and how much work you put on it!
-------
Judges you need score by points here is the outline-
Creativity- 0/10
Quality- 0/50

ChrstyFarie07_SC
11th Aug 2007, 8:52 PM
Here are the scores for everyone, they come in the order as I got them, and so you will never know who posted them unless they tell you, lol ^_^.

-First set of scores-

1.Jennifer Glenwood
Creativity- 3/10
Quality- 20/50
Comments- Unfortunately the pictures are quite blurry and I can't see many details. Try to zoom in more next time.

2. Kathryn Murray
Creativity- 8/10
Quality- 40/50
Comments- I really like the overall feel and the layout of that room. However, some of the decorations don't seem to match, they are great on their own but do't look that great good together.

3. Eloise Dean
Creativity- 7/10
Quality- 37/50
Comments- This room looks nice as well and I like the objects you picket. However, that room could have used more color. The turquoise bits are lovely but just too few.

4. Christopher Arden & Jojo Hastings
Creativity- 10/10
Quality- 50/50
Comments- Wow, I am really impressed! That room is nearly a spa, I love all that dark wood. Also you have chosen a very creative layout.

Comments-This room looks quite nice, but it could also have used more color.Also, I don't think the layout is too good. I like the many plants you used here though.

Comments-First of all, I really love the shower! Your layout is very nice, but that room could have used some more objects in it.

8. Renata Alister
Creativity- 7/10
Quality- 35/50
Comments- This room has a very airy feel, with all the light colors. I like how you seperated the room into different areas, but I think the different tiles you picked don't look to great together.

Creativity- 6/10
Quality- 35/50
Comments- I really like the bright blue floor here, and the "beachy" feel of this room. The layout is nice, but try to zoom in more for the aerial next time, so I can see more. Also, the pictures her are a little blurry.

Comments- The seperate areas of this room all look great on their own but not so much together. It would have been better to have some connecting element in the middle, where you have lots of free space.

I really do not like this. This is called houses with beauty yet with the over use of mirrors and un inspiring layout this doesnt show much sense of beauty. Also never have a picture that shows sims in it.

A very nice room with a great unique layout and great use of furniture. It also looks very refreshing wish is a key thing in a bathroom.

Everything in this rooms looks great. I love the layout and the custom content but, I feell there is way too much. I feel it looses what a bathroom should be and that is a relaxing and refreshing place, which is what this looses through it being cluttered. Maybe It would have been better as a smaller room with less objects.

A great room. I love the idea with all the satin curtains and it looks gorgeous. I also like the coliyr scheme. One thing I think need changing is the empty space in the middle, maybe some objects such as a large plant or round table with decor on it?

I must say I'm pretty confused about my scores. I get a perfect score from one judge, a pretty good score from another judge, and then from the other one I get the second lowest score in the bunch. Was putting too much stuff in a room really worth that many points? :confused: It's okay though, different people different opinions. I'll try harder next round!

Umm.....we aren't going to have to connect these huge rooms at any point are we?

I didn't use a huge lot for the bathroom, because I didn't want to lag my system with tons of stuff on a single lot...if we're going to have to join rooms in the end or something, it's not going to work for me, as my rooms are going to have to be on separate lots.

EDIT: And congrats to Destin! It looks like you were only one point shy of perfect scores from all the judges. You amaze me. :beer:

I know it has to be challenging. I wasn't complaining; just saying that I'm not used to decorating such big rooms! Most of the time, I build small houses because I hate having my sims waste their energy just going upstairs to their bedroom! lol. Anyhow, I'm sorry again, but decorating just isn't for me. Good luck to everyone else!

A very nice laid out room, especially the split level idea. Some of the frniture looks great and very classy and well laid out, but, I feel this room is quite bland. I think that there is a way big overkill on the white, and the amount of brown and green is at a minimum. The green/brownish wallpaper is quite dull and maybe a more vibrant green would have stood out more, with some vibrant green rugs to really bring it out. I like the idea of the plants that is a very nice touch. For the brown maybe you could have brought in some more pine furniture or maybe tanned something to give that real hint of brown, maybe through the flooring some dark wood.

This room is very nice! I really like the colour scheme as it looks very confortable and tastefull. I really like how you have made the split level area, then with a small cushioned area that is is quite relaxing, then the main part of the living room. I also think you have done a very good job of mixing green and brown with white which is quite a contrasting colour, but the way you have laid everything out and mixed it together everything seems to peice together well! Good work.

Nice room. I like the idea of have the nice cosy realsing seating area near the fireplace, then on ther other side a family room with the tv and other stuff.
I like the shapeing over the interior walls, it looks really nice and gives the room some interest. One bad point for me is though is that, I really dont like the white couch and armchair with the brown couch in the fireplace are, it doesnt really go well together. But other than that a very nice room.

Wow that room is gorgeous. It is very palace like with the marvelous grand furniture and gorgous mixes of white and brown. The artwork and decorative things are just gorgeous and really compliment the room. Also the room with all of the small decorative things is just amazing and so realistic. There isnt't a bad thing to say about this room. Blew me away, stunning!

Comments

Hmmm, okay room with okay furniture. Let me start with the build mode objects, the windows in the first picture (from Pets I believe) are quite retro and super modern, yet the other end of the room you have quite suburban/geogian windows that suit a nice suburban home, two types that completely clash. Now the the wallpapering, I find it very dull and maybe a lighter green would have looked brighter and more open. Now the furniture and positioning, I like quite a few peices in the room, nice couches, nice ceiling lamps aswell as other things, but they seem to lack creative positioing. Maybe some more clutter and the allow angle of rotation cheat would have made the rooms feel less empty and more contempt and fuller. I think maybe some more prominent bigger pecies of furniture would have also filled some of the empty space.

-Third Set-
1.Kathryn Murray-

Creativity- 7/10
Quality- 37/50
Comments- This time the decorations look much better together than last time, but the room is a little empty. I really like how you divided the room but I think some stronger colors (as accents) would have helped to make the room look more inviting.

2. Eloise Dean-

Creativity- 8/10
Quality- 39/50
Comments-I really like the layout and the flooring of this room. However, I feel that you mixed too many shades of the colors. There are dark woods, light woods, medium woods and all shades of green. That's a little too much in my eyes. Also your pictures are a little blurry.

3. Christopher Arden & Jojo Hastings-

Creativity- 9/10
Quality- 47/50
Comments-This room just sreams Italy! I like the layout very much and you managed to reall fill it but let it not look too cluttered. However, I whish you had used a little less cream tones and more "real" whites instead, this way the room would have looked more "fresh".

4. Michael Callaway-

Creativity- 7/10
Quality- 43/50
Comments-I love the furniture you selected! The colors are great as well but in your layout you have too much empty space near the door, a rug would probably have looked wonderful there.

5. Renata Alister-

Creativity- 5/10
Quality- 28/50
Comments-I think the idea you had was nice but it is not well executed. The room is quite dark and very empty. I love the brown couches though.

Round 3, Kitchen

Well ladies and gentlemen you guys have made it to round 4! The last round and any round no one was eliminated, so everyone will have to work hard to take first place and nothing cause so far we have no donations :( and I’m to lazy to make anything too, lol.

You will have to build a BEAUTIFUL kitchen that is let me think for a while…17x10! The same size as your living room! You must have a cooking area, a nook, and a dinning area. And the THEME is a tropical or Modern, you must state which one you are doing! (And thank you Jordan for the idea)

Good Luck and have Fun!

Jordan09
21st Aug 2007, 3:21 AM
Hey Destin, I gave Chrsty the idea of the nook, and basically for this it is a small, quite cosy area where sims could maybe relax on some nice small confy couches or place a small dining table . Basically a nook is a small space that may have a dining set in it or be a small seating area.

Thanks for the comments and scores judges, I do sharpen my pics in photoshop already but I guess i'll just hit it up a few clicks more! And about the couches in the fireplace area, I actually had a couch and loveseat that matched the white armchair but I changed it because it was just too much of one color. whoops! I should have just left it :anime:

I really feel like I'm learning a lot through this contest and the judges comments and I took the comments from the bathroom round into consideration in the last round and now I have more hints to take into consideration this round. Thanks!

Oh, and Destin: Congrats on your amazing scores on both rounds! You definitely deserve them!

About this nook....lol

Add walls, fences, dividers, blah, blah. Add anything as long you don't call its something else. Oh and add doors, gates, invisible doors, imaginary doors, blah, blah. And remember has to be a nook! Hehe ^_^.

I've just started to build my kitchen when I came across a thought. I've made my dining room bigger than my actual kitchen? Does this matter? I have an example here and I'll remove it to save space once my question is answered.

I think its ok! But I'm not sure if it will affect your score, the judges might have a different opinion :D.

Wow ok, hey Chrsty...working with that space...if most of the room is kitchen, that's a lot of kitchen in the real world. Is it supposed to be "mostly" kitchen, as in mostly kitchen cabinets everywhere?

hmm, lol :)

Uh ok, I didn't get your question at first, but anyway its a kitchen, it doesn't really matter which one is more important as long as its has the need requirements. But I must say the Kitchen is kinda the most important part :D yet the dinning area is also, hehe. CONFUSING :blink: !

I forgot to say! This is a modern kitchen..

RAWR! Great rooms! And the last round was round 3, hehe. I got the numbers messed up and its confused me for 2 minutes :P.

Okay now, I confused myself again! Grrrr, last round was round 2 and this is round 3, so you won't earn a star. God Dammit (WOOPEE FOR SWEARING)!

I thought it was, I wasn't sure if you'd count application as Round 1 though. (If you're that concerned about the star then could you get around it that way?)

And wow, I am gobsmacked. That is an amazing (with emphasis :p) entry SimsArtThat!

Hehe, it said you need 4 rounds and the application round counts if the judges comments and people got eliminated. And I've asked DK for and extension so I can post round 4 and see if she could also post the round 4 results. And if she agrees, I will post it right after round 3 and you guys can get started!

24th Aug 2007, 12:39 AM
Im the one who should be asked about extensions, and I can give you an extension as long as you will be able to post results, rounds and answer questions (just like you have been doing throughout the contest). If you dont think you will be around to do so, I cannot grant an extension on this contest.

ChrstyFarie07, judges and fellow contestants.
I am very sorry but I will have to drop out from this contest. I feel really bad about this, because it's my first contest and I really wanted to finish it.
However, the rules for last round were posted on Monday and I was working everyday from morning till night. So, I pretty much only now will be able to start working on the kitchen and there is no way in the world that I will finish it by 12 am. Plus, everyone else's entries are so amazing, I won't come even close to anything like it.
Again I am sorry about this. Hope you all will understand.

Okay its time for the scores! We have the first set, first!

1. Kathryn Murray-

Creativity- 9/10
Quality- 48/50
Comments- Oh my god! I am speechless. I totally love this room! I think you learned a lot in this contest, you have improved a lot in my eyes. I am amazed how well you filled that giant room without making it look cluttered. Your color scheme and the objects you selected are wonderful. Great job! Ah, another thing: Although you said that this is a modern kitchen, is has some tropical elements. I like that!
Total-57
------
2. Eloise Dean-

Creativity- 7/10
Quality- 42/50
Comments- What a beautiful room this is! You managed to fill the space very well. I like the way you put the nook in. However, maybe it would have looked even better if you had used a lighter shade of orange to complement the green. Also, the counter area is a tad too modern and sleek for a "tropical" room. But all in all you really did a good job!
Total - 49
------
3. Christopher Arden & Jojo Hastings-

Creativity- 10/10
Quality- 45/50
Comments-Wonderful execution of the tropical theme! I love the combination of bright turquoise and light wood. The furniture and artwork you selected look great together. While I give you full creativity points for the "pond" thingy, I am not sure about how this would work in a real kitchen. It makes the room look like a patio area rather than a kitchen ... However, this room looks like one could spend a good time there and have fun. Well done!
Total-55
------
4. Michael Callaway-

Creativity- 8/10
Quality- 44/50
Comments- I totally love the Tiki-style furniture you used and the aquarium is awsome! You used some red elements (rug, pictures), but I whish you had used more of it to set accents in your otherwise quite monochromatic room. However, your room looks very inviting and that's what counts. Good job!

This room looks great! I think that with the amount of decor in this room, it would be easy to make it look cluttered, but the way you have dibe it has made it very detailed and realistic. Also the choices of colours look great together.
