Darn Beeps, this contest looks freakin' awesome! If I had the time right now, I would sooo consider applying to win my own bakery back :D Lol I might just redecorate the dorm at my own pace just for the fun of it! I'm happy to be an EJ or the 3rd judge if you happen not to get one too.

As long as there's not penalty to joining up and having a prolly bad entry, I'll sign up to contest. I have little interest in the lot, but I need something to do.

I'm currently working on an application for this contest. My first decorating contest as well, so I'm sort of nervous. Luckily my assessment is dying down now, so I'll have plenty of time.

Quick question. Can we add half walls? Or is that too dramatic of a change?

You may not add full walls. Half walls may be added, but only to the kitchen/living areas.

Can I be a judge too?
You sure can! Added to this list!

Is this a no cc contest, or just the original dorm has no cc?

Didnt see it mentioned, so I thought I would ask if there can be changes made to the paint colors of the exterior walls and foundation?

This sounds like so much fun :)! I should be slaving away on my research paper, but I'd rather perfect my dorm ;).

. . . hopefully being the first to submit isn't a kick in the behind :)

I was inspired by the beachy / sea design because this is located in the college assosiated with my "boat house" neighborhood.

Exterior (kinda plain, but, I never was the one to be able to landscape)

I thought the boats were a cute idea, but, who knows . . . they might not "go".

The Main Hall
http://i377.photobucket.com/albums/oo218/depposbournefan/snapshot_00000029_76c92548.jpg
This one shot definately didn't capture the entire room, and kinda left out some of the odd and end cute things, but . . . :)

The Extra Room
http://i377.photobucket.com/albums/oo218/depposbournefan/snapshot_00000029_f6c925cb.jpg
Desided to turn it into a quite sitting area.

Over View. (I didn't know if you wanted the exterior landscaping included, so, I just included it anyway)

I for one quite like it, actually. Especially what you've done with the terrain. I also love the use of cheats to your advantage.

I am still confused as to whether this is a "no cc" contest or not. I'd like to start working on an entry tonight and don't want to add things that are not allowed.

Plus, it's so nice to have a contest ran in my own time zone --no more adding and subtracting hours in my head to get in on time. Yayyyyyyyyyyy.

I am still confused as to whether this is a "no cc" contest or not. I'd like to start working on an entry tonight and don't want to add things that are not allowed.

Plus, it's so nice to have a contest ran in my own time zone --no more adding and subtracting hours in my head to get in on time. Yayyyyyyyyyyy.
I think that that thing on the main post saying "...No CC.." was refering to the lot you have to download, Not this contest.
:)
Cause I surely used a crapload of CC on my entry :lol:

beeps
15th Mar 2009, 8:59 PM
Deatherella... You can use CC throughout the contest as you wish :)

MissTech... You may change/add/delete/whatever paint and floors anywhere, including the main pathway up to the front doors.

simcharley1990... You certainly can! I'm glad to have you aboard!

Rabid... I'd love to see you in this contest ;)

clw8... Great entry!

clw8 I definently don't think being the first to submit will work against you at all! I really like the 'beachy' theme you've decided to give your dorm, it's refreshing to see something different!

Also bP I see I am now 3rd judge, most excellent :D I can't wait to see the future entries.

Dormers would be considered a roof, so that's fine. Just use your discresion, everyone, and don't cheat by adding like another level to the dorm or something :p (Glad to hear you are excited!)

can we add free standing walls, or a small room to the yard of the dorm?
I would say no. A gazeebo-type-thing would be OK, but no walls or extra rooms please!

Thanks to a bequeathment from dear old Mr. Portnoy, Sim State University can now afford to spruce up their campus. Mr. Portnoy simply asked that his money be used to bring back the air of sophistication the University once had.

Look down the path. Neat, tailored lawns, shady trees, a tranquil pond. A lovely environment in which to study! Mr. Portnoy would be pleased. :)

I am really way too busy to take part in any contests, but this one is too good to let pass by.

So, in making my contest debut, may I present the Carmichael Dorm of Hunter University.

http://i451.photobucket.com/albums/qq239/tenielle84/S2C%20Perfect%20Dorm%20Contest/Sims2ep92009-03-1617-11-38-83.jpg

The Carmichael Dorm is the oldest and most prestigious dorm on the university campus. Recently renovated and restored, this dorm is fully equipped to house four lucky students throughout their university career.

http://i451.photobucket.com/albums/qq239/tenielle84/S2C%20Perfect%20Dorm%20Contest/Sims2ep92009-03-1617-12-25-32.jpg

The exterior of the dorm is exquisitely landscaped, and the brand new gazebo (http://i451.photobucket.com/albums/qq239/tenielle84/S2C%20Perfect%20Dorm%20Contest/Sims2ep92009-03-1617-12-55-12.jpg) is the perfect place to relax after a hard day of study. Adequate lighting outside means that the gazebo can even be used after the sun has gone down (http://i451.photobucket.com/albums/qq239/tenielle84/S2C%20Perfect%20Dorm%20Contest/Sims2ep92009-03-1617-48-17-03.jpg).

The hall (http://i451.photobucket.com/albums/qq239/tenielle84/S2C%20Perfect%20Dorm%20Contest/Sims2ep92009-03-1617-39-51-69.jpg) is the centre of the dorm, allows access to student rooms and bathrooms, and is the perfect place to meet and discuss course work.

The study nook of the dorm is fully stocked with the most recent of literature and research material, and all computers are linked with instant access to the internet.

http://i451.photobucket.com/albums/qq239/tenielle84/S2C%20Perfect%20Dorm%20Contest/Sims2ep92009-03-1617-31-36-58.jpg

Students can also curl up on the couch with a good book or enjoy a game of chess with a friend, and all campus events are advertised on the notice board by the door.

Sorry, Sophie, I saw your application just as I was editing all my pictures in Photoshop, and realised we had both had the same idea of using the same bookcases by the big window at the end of the dorm. Great minds think alike!

~Does anyone know why my first picture is so much larger than the rest? I actually resized it smaller than the rest in Photoshop, but it is still larger. Does Photobucket just mess them up? I have never had it happen before~

Oh gosh, all I've done on mine so far is give the hall a new floor and the exterior of the building is all but done. And then I come online and check out what's here and wonder what the heck to do to be different.

I have a ?, bp, if I surrounded the roof with those mansard roof thingy's you can stick on top of a house, it's not considered making a room on the roof despite the fact there is now a big empty spot inside all the roof thingy's? I used them for a new roof look that went with my exterior design. There's no action on the roof.

You may notice on my pics, that I don't use curtains. I seem to have issues with them in my game, either they are to high up, to low, or won't center on the window at all. So I don't use them. Anyone else have that problem?

Since I have no life (:)) I decided to go ahead and get my Round 1 finished.

The kitchen.
Definately not my first choice in color, however, I think that it turned out alright. Even though I didn't use my original choice of wallpaper -sailboats- I still stressed the whole "sea/fishing" theme by hanging tons of fish and sea type wall hanging. I do hope I didn't "over do it".
Since the room wasn't big enough for everything + tables, I decided to just have an eat-at-bar.
http://i377.photobucket.com/albums/oo218/depposbournefan/snapshot_00000029_36cec8ff.jpg
. . . I did use that special stove that makes the cook come . . .

http://i377.photobucket.com/albums/oo218/depposbournefan/snapshot_00000029_96cec95d.jpg

The Living Room
Since you said that IF you put bookshelves in the "extra room" then you DIDN"T have to include them in here, I didn't include them (no room mainly)
I tried to stick to the "sea" theme here too, mainly playing with light blues and white.

And an overview. I hope that just including the 2 rooms that were suppose to be made - over is ok. If not, I can get a pic of an overview of the entire dorm.

As long as you have one in your extra room, you don't need to have one in your living area.

Ok well here goes nothing. I have only just recently come back to the world of simming, so I hope I remember how to post the pictures properly :P

please tell me if anything is wrong, as I expect there will be :P

Right, this is the Exterior shot of the dorm. I wanted to keep it quite modern to fit in with the modern student trend. There is lots of use of Black as My neigbourhood is quite gothic :P
http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj275/bolt660/CompExtsmall.jpg

Moving inside the hallway it is again quite a gothic feel, It is not too full as I prefer lots to be spacious, but at the same time "homey"
http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj275/bolt660/CompHallwaysmall.jpg

For my "Extra Room" it is really just an extended part of the hallway offering a space for the students to have a good game of pool :P
http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj275/bolt660/Compextraroomsmall.jpg

Back outside, I wanted to include a waterfall as I remember from my university days a large fountain where we all socialised, I can just see it being a prime loactaion for lovers to chill.
http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj275/bolt660/Compland2.jpg

Finally here is the Top down shot of the lot. Although the landscaping is rather limited ( as I am not very good at it) I feel it still offers plenty of nature to keep them calm during their studies.
http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj275/bolt660/Comptopdownsmall.jpg

During its recent upgrade, the kitchen and living rooms of Carmichael Dorm were completely gutted and rebuilt.

Kitchen

Featuring brand new fixtures and appliances, the kitchen is well equipped to meet the hunger needs of even the most ravenous of students. The kitchen boasts a brand new stove, fridge, dishwasher and trash compacter, and employs a cook to prepare meals for the students every day. And to assist in surviving those all-nighters, students can also enjoy fresh espresso made on the brand new machine.

http://i451.photobucket.com/albums/qq239/tenielle84/S2C%20Perfect%20Dorm%20Contest/Sims2ep92009-03-2011-54-45-04.jpg

Meals are enjoyed by students at the dining room table, which promotes not only proper table manners, but ensures that students get to know one another and form friendships.

http://i451.photobucket.com/albums/qq239/tenielle84/S2C%20Perfect%20Dorm%20Contest/Sims2ep92009-03-2011-57-53-57.jpg

The living room was designed in collaboration with students, with both recreation and relaxation noted as a high priority.
The pool table is the centre point of this room, encouraging students to take part in a little friendly competition. Or if pool is not appealing, maybe a little darts to relieve some of the stress of studying?

Students can also relax in front of the brand new, wide screen TV, and catch up on the latest news, movies or television shows.

I just noticed some discrepencies in my living room pics with the pool table. Sorry! I was playtesting to ensure that the rooms were playable and didn't result in traffic jams. Is this something that I would be likely to be penalised for, or does it not make much of a difference? :doh

Well, I must say that I must do a good job at creating a sea type resturant very well, atleast seeings how I've never stepped foot anywhere near one! But, everyone keeps saying they've ate somewhere similar, so, what can I say?!

duderocks- I love how colourful your dorm is. I never seem to place the vending machines in my lots, as they never to look right, but you have used them well. I can't wait to see more.

babbel- Wow, please excuse me while I pick my jaw up from the floor. You have done an amazing job. It just goes to show that with a little careful planning, you can fit a lot into small rooms. They look great, well done!

When I saw this contest I knew I had to join (hadn't noticed it earlier since I've been busy with homework). After all not only do I LOVE decorating my sim's houses but I live in a dorm and so I know something about living in dorms.... anywho..

Exterior
I tried to make the exterior inviting, somewhere the dorm's residents wouldn't mind hanging out in. I put a lot of trees to provide shade in the summer. There's a hammock, tables/chairs, and a grill for picnics. I also placed a garden area and fruit trees for dorm residents with a green thumb to gather together and enjoy planting in the spring. There are also plenty of benches for general relaxing and a porch swing (not shown) for enjoying the view on a rainy day.
http://i44.tinypic.com/s2e88k.jpg
http://i44.tinypic.com/2eok4cm.jpg

Hallway
For the interior I tried to make it modern and funky fun without making it appeal to any one taste in particular. I added a table to put things on to the left of the door (shown in mirror) since you can always use a place to put boxes and homework. I added a mirror for last minute clothing checks before heading out for they day and place to put your shoes. In the "extra room" I made it a sitting area for hanging out with your friends placing large mirrors in the area to make the whole hallway seem much larger than it actually is.

Well, here is my very first decorating project. I just started working with houses, so let me know what you think!

Overview:

Here are a set of blue prints for Napier Hall, it is decorated in both a traditional and modern way. Styles clash, but what's better than a little conflict?

Here is our quaint parking lot showing off our beautiful Facade!

This is the porch. In itself isn't very exciting, but each plant has a significance. Every resident that we accept is required to plant and care for a single plant in their residence hall. Those two purple flowers? They were planted by the Napiers themselves and soon the hall was renamed from "Fickes Hall" to "Napier Hall" because of their constant care, the introduce the Plant Policy and continue to check up every once and a while... just keep an eye out....

and bP, thank you for the comment! about the poster wall, the wall oposit to it is covered in alien posters as well, but i didn't get a good shot of it, unfortunately. ): i really need to learn to take better pictures.

There is heaps of helpful tips for becoming more comfortable with taking pictures!

First I was thinking, I actually don't have time for another competition. Then I was thinking, everybody's entries are so great, what can I possibly contribute with, amongst these giants of art. But then I posted my entries for the other two competitions, and my life felt so empty :blink: , and since there still was a possibility to apply; here we go again ;)

Darlingtown Road Dorm
Did they have dorms 100 years ago? Of course they did! And the (imaginary) English town Darlingtown has an up-to-date one for the modern Sims of the 20th Century.

Exterior
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/FrauT/Sims%20contest/Dorm02bexteriorleftresized.jpg
The agricultural students have plenty of opportunity to experiment in the greenhouse, or even, for the more scientific one, watch the grass grow in the large lawns. There is possibility for a good soccer game, or a nice barbeque, and if that isn't enough - take the horses for a ride downtown.
All right? (http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/FrauT/Sims%20contest/Dorm02bexteriorright.jpg)

Hallway
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/FrauT/Sims%20contest/Dorm03interiorfireplaceOK.jpg
There is no English house without proper heating. If there is, it would be a huge mistake. The fireplace in Darlingtown Road Dorm (DRD) is welcoming you just inside of the entrance, so the student coming back from campus can put his (or her) feet up immediately. If there is any strength left in these hardworking children of knowledge, they could always practice their musical skills, to joy - or frustration - of their fellow student.

Extra room - Library
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/FrauT/Sims%20contest/Dorm03interiorofficeok.jpg
No pain, without gain. All students who have failed their exams know that. For some it is the other way around, and you can see them fight over the modern equipment in the library. "Why do all young people need a typewriter? Cant they just use ink?" our architect asked, and of course, he his right.

Well here's a chance for those of you who forgot to bring your glasses (http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/FrauT/Sims%20contest/Dorm01topdownallok.jpg) or contact lenses.

PS! If someone can tell me if there is a way to turn lights on in a lot without Sims, I would be very grateful. The tutorial haven't reached that point (yet).

KyriaT... Great application! I love your idea of doing an old-to-new dorm; the landscaping is simply awesome! In buy mode, toggle daytime off (by pressing the "L" key) and then place your lights. They will be on when you place them.

Right, here is the Living room and the kitchen. Again its quite modern and "funky" but at the same time the dark colours give it a sophisticated edge. I would have liked to get some more custom content, but my internet is very slow until I get broadband on wednesday :P

The Living room is quite basic but offers a nice place to chill and watch movies on the large television. The Candle's are there as the theme I am trying to create is sort of a gothic feel.
http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj275/bolt660/livingroomnew1.jpg

As with all the rooms, the Ceiling is quite a complicated design which not only gives the room a bit of lightness to contrast the dark furniture, but also makes it all the more modern. After all this room is designed for students.
http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj275/bolt660/livingroomnew2.jpg


Moving onto the kitchen now, and again it is full of dark colours, and is the perfect area for the roomates to socialise in.
http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj275/bolt660/Kitchen1.jpg

There is a dining table to of course sit at, but most the students ( from experience) prefer to take their food into the living room to eat :P
http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj275/bolt660/kitchen2.jpg

This shot is rather pointless, but I wanted to get an outside feel of what its like inside.
http://i274.photobucket.com/albums/jj275/bolt660/window.jpg

Here is the Top down view of the rooms.

I really must think of a name for my dorm soon, as I can't wait to play it after the competition.

Great entries everyone :D

i love this contest. and all the dorms.
im not really good at remembering names and who did what.
but
i love the nauticaltheme one, dont know why but it appeals to me a lot

the gothic one is creeeeeepily good, i can never make anything dark. it just comes out bright and nice.

whoever did the mirrored wall in the extraroom its so great idea and looks good

and then i liked the bar-in-the-kitchen. (was that the nautical??hmm)

and someone put a square (halfwalled) in the living with a little table in the middle and 4 hm hm chairs (not the dining ones, im having a language blackout here) around it (that would be : armchair). that gave me a oh? oh! lovely setting moment just there.

and exterior with the bicycles. thats very student. (at lest in sweden. university students on bicycles all over, ignoring trafic rules and generating lots of complaints in the newspaper lol)

ok cant think of anything else just now. but if you did it i love it ;)

Thanks Gulhare :D I have to say, I love how light your kitchen looks, It just seems so cheerful and bright. I am the oppostite to you and stuggle to get enough light into my rooms :P I also love the landscaping you have done with the half walls outside, it looks like a perfect place to relax :P

KyriaT - Your application looks so life-like. Your rooms really reflect the time period to perfection. It looks more like a real life home than a sims one :P

All of your application/Round ones are so good everyone, and this is one exciting competition to be in :D

HAH! if i joined so should you! i really really suck at landscaping (my mind keeps going oh my dear my sims will have to rake leaves all day long and those flowers will wilt in notime....no flowers for you young man/lady) and im not very good at design either.
go for it and at least youd be better than me :D

Darlingtown Road Dorm

Kitchen

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/FrauT/Sims%20contest/Dorm05kitchenAresized.jpg

Egg and bacon? Kidney Pie? Pudding? The Darlingtown dorm kitchen is so inviting and functional that nobody wants to go for pizza.

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/FrauT/Sims%20contest/Dorm05kitchenBresized.jpg

When they are not preparing the next posh dinner party, the students love to have a cup of tea and a chat in the kitchen. Makes them feel just like home.

Living area
http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/FrauT/Sims%20contest/Dorm06livingAresized.jpg

The living room is excellent for conversations and entertainment. Or a cup of tea and a chat, of course.

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/FrauT/Sims%20contest/Dorm06livingBresized.jpg

There have been reports that some students attend the bridge table much more often than their classes. The comfortable heat from the wood fuel stove might be the reason. As for the art, the ballerina painting has been known to show moving pictures. I know - it’s unbelievable!

http://i662.photobucket.com/albums/uu342/FrauT/Sims%20contest/Dorm06livingCresized.jpg

Well out of reach of the nosy ears of their parents, the young adults put some modern tango on the stylish gramophone, or maybe some exciting new ragtime jazz. Or they listen to Chopin, while they have a cup of tea and a chat.

A cozy porch (http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d195/burninggiraffex/porch1.jpg) with seating for four surrounds the front entrance to the dorm--and there's plenty of room, so you don't have to shoo-flee!

Round One Entry: Common Rooms
WELCOME BACK! This is a tour of Napier Hall’s common rooms, specifically the Kitchen and the Living Room.
A quick Overview:
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3662/3383951324_beeb25fe2b_o.jpg

Let me just take you into our state of the art kitchen. Everything here is brand new this year. The lack of a microwave is 100% intentional as they give off too much radiation to fit in with our semi-eco-friendly hall theme.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3437/3383951510_31c7771e80_o.jpg
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3464/3383137129_624831b19f_o.jpg
One of the most interesting aspects of the kitchen is its dinette bar. The widow looks over campus and you can even see Chapel Hill.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3443/3383951470_2bb3e233ee_o.jpg
Here is our comfy Living room. Seems like someone has been reading. It is usually quite quiet in here as quiet hours begin at 11pm.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3563/3383137023_fe7b989237_o.jpg
This is our artistically mock fireplace, it may not provide warmth, but is sure is purdy…
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3559/3383137071_ed09412faa_o.jpg

Ha… This is everyone’s favorite section…The game room. Flat screen TV, X-box 360 and Wii, what more can you ask for? Yep, over 200 games. Cute and comfy pillows and relaxing candles in the middle, now what more can you ask for?

Sorry I didn't get this in earlier, I've been really busy this week and haven't had a chance to get onto the computer till today. But here is my round one, I also apologize for the low quality pictures, Paint wasn't cooperating with me.

I tried to keep it simple and homey, but I'm not sure if I succeeded. I love everyone's round ones, :beer:
