I'm back...lol. I promised a break from my Basegame 'hood makeovers before Strangetown. And I'm still giving one, as this is something completely different ;) Just don't know what to do with myself without a contest to host. So today I bring you...

http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/3/5/6/0/3/1/3/MTS_jones7659-1369439-babbanner.jpg

Qualifications to Host: Hosted Pleasantview (http://bootstrap.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=487463) and Veronaville (http://bootstrap.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=498452&c=1&ht=&page=1&pp=25#startcomments) Home Makeover contests.

Concept: I will give you a community lot with only the outside walls. You will choose from one of 6 businesses to turn it into. Each business will have a set of requirements. OFB is very strongly recommended, though you could fake it with CC.


Rules


This is a TS2 only contest.
Only free CC is allowed.
Pictures should be big and clear. See MTS Guidelines (http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php?title=MTS2:Creator_Guidelines/Screenshot_Basics)
Up to 8 pics for each lot. At least 1 exterior, 1 top down and 3 interior.
No collages.
You may add whatever interior walls you choose.
You may NOT add exterior walls, or edit the existing ones.
You may add whatever half walls, fences or awnings you choose.
All requirements for your chosen business must be in the building. For example, if you wish to add outside seating, that is fine, as long as the required amount is within the building.
Stages maybe used however you wish inside. Outside they may be used as deco only. I.E. planters, pedestals, etc.



Requirements: This a contest for any skill level. It would be helpful to be fairly familiar with taking good screenshots. You will be required to post upto 8 pictures of each lot. Any level of decorating skill is welcome.


Timeline: The application round, is also round 1 and will be scored. It will last for two weeks. There will be 4 rounds total, each lasting two weeks.

Application/Round 1 is closed - SCORES (http://modthesims.info/showpost.php?p=4190796&postcount=422)

Judging: I would like three judges. Eventhough I said I wouldn't do it again, I'm going to judge this one because I kind of missed it last time. So I need two more judges and an EJ. If you would like to apply to be a judge, please just post one interior and one exterior shot of any lot, doesn't even have to be the same lot, that you have decorated. Judges will be expected to have their scores in within 72 hours.


Judge 1, Judge 2, Judge 3, Emergency Judge
jones7659,Phaenoh,w_sims,purplegopher



Scoring:

There will be 65 possible points each round.

3 Sections will be scored by each judge (15 pts per judge)

Overall Design 5 pts: Does the design look nice? Is it coheasive? Do the chosen colors or patterns go well together?

Theme 5 pts: Does this design fit the theme for the chosen business? Is it executed well?

Playability 5 pts: Is there enough space for sims to move around? (Remember these are comm lots, so there may be a high volume of sims, so leave plenty of open space to prevent foot stomping)

2 sections will only be scored once. Each judge should still look at these parts and let me know if you notice anything, I might miss something ;)

Requirements 10 pts: Does the lot meet all the requirements?

Structure 10 pts: Are any exterior walls added, changed or removed? Any other structural rules broken?



We need 10 contestants to get this contest going, but will take up to 20.

Entering this one! Haha can't resist a building contest. I thought about applying as a judge until I saw the range of shops. :lol: I just finished a building project for upload so this is perfect timing.

Phaenoh

I feel like I'm probably going to regret this, but I'd like to be a judge. ;) I'm still a little too burnt out from being a contestant in Veronaville to join in on this one properly, but maybe judging won't be as bad. Though, I know from judging my own Scrapbooking Contest, it's not always that much less work. Well, maybe judging without hosting is easier. I'm like you jones, not participating in SOMETHING is hard to handle!

Here's a set of small shops (http://www.modthesims.info/d/281151) I did 5 years ago (wow time flies!), so I can say with confidence, I'm likely much better at it now. It's reincarnation two years later (http://modthesims.info/showpost.php?p=3059946&postcount=15) is part of my West Weasels hood.
I seem to be addicted to the tiny shops, because another version of them (http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-q1wOZX2VeoY/UFipj4zMDKI/AAAAAAAAA4M/-fSNLTgIrxc/s1600/UniversityShop.jpg) are going up in my WIP college hood. I've done larger more heavily decorated buildings as well, but those seemed to be the most relevant.

Will you have me jones? Or are you getting sick of me? :P

justJones
20th Jun 2013, 10:52 PM
Of course I'll have you, Phae ;) And glad to have you too, jo! I feel I'm getting quite a name as a contest host, lol. That's ok by me :D

I'm hoping the judging for this will be a smidge easier than for the 'hood makeovers. It's simpler scoring, no sub sections and such. I'll probably regret judging, too, lol. But I really missed it in Veronaville and found myself judging the entries in my head anyway ;)


To be fair...

So 4 rounds and 6 possible buildings means we decide which 4 we want to do and the other 2 get left?

justJones
21st Jun 2013, 2:42 AM
Yes, jo. I'm figuring between all the contestants, each one will probably be used at some point ;) But yes, each of you will only use 4 of them. I figured giving 6 options would add even more variety to the entries :)

I am so excited to see a new contest so quickly - I'm on my summer break so I don't have those darned exams that stopped me entering the Round 4 of your Veronaville contest! :D

I would just like to double check that there are no budgets for any of the businesses, yes?

question can we add a 2nd floor to the lot

justJones
21st Jun 2013, 8:09 PM
No. I had thought about it. And perhaps a lot in another round will have two, haven't decided yet. But if the lot I give you is one story, it has to stay one story.

Phaenoh
21st Jun 2013, 8:37 PM
Hey jones, if you have time, can you post pictures of the round 1 lot? I'd like to see what everyone is starting from.

justJones
21st Jun 2013, 8:39 PM
Yeah, I had planned on it Phae, just forgot. I'll snap one a little later, because we need one to make sure no exterior walls are changed.

Ok, added one in a spoiler under the timeline section of the first post. I just added the floor plan one, because other than the walls there's nothing to see, lol. All lots will be 2x2s. <Strike that, 3x3s. <Strike that, 3x2s...my bad. 3x2...final answer ;) The lots are all 3x2.

Jeez that's huge! Good luck to the entrants, I have no idea how I would go about making a store that big. Most of my houses aren't even that big! o.O Course, I've never made a Walmart before...

joandsarah77
22nd Jun 2013, 2:06 PM
Lol, and I was looking at that thinking "I wonder if it's big enough..." :lol:

justJones
22nd Jun 2013, 2:40 PM
It's not terribly large. Especially for a restaurant or the furniture store. I made mine a furniture store and really wished I had more room. I think it's not as big as it looks. It's a very zoomed in picture. It's only (roughly) 13x22. Also, I may go a lil bigger than some with my businesses because I like to put a restroom (or two) and a break room in my businesses ;)

tallyb, anyone is welcome to join, up to 20 contestants. Just download the lot and pick a business. There will be 3 more rounds after this, so if you don't think you'll have time in the next 8 weeks, this contest might not be for you. But if you've got the time, you are more than welcome!

Phaenoh
22nd Jun 2013, 2:59 PM
It must be me then. I only ever make tiny shops, usually on the 1x3 minilots. I've never made a successful furniture store though, so maybe it's not too big. I can't wait to be schooled!

Liv
22nd Jun 2013, 3:27 PM
I took a look at the lot in game and I said to myself 'it's very big with quite complicated shape (!) and I have to seriously consider what business should I locate on it'. I haven't made decision yet, but what I alredyd did was excluding some of them because the style/outdoor free space didn't fit my ideas! For example I can't imagine a family restaurant without small playground.
My shops are mostly on 2x2 lots.

justJones
22nd Jun 2013, 3:43 PM
I forgot these are 3x3. I wanted to do 2x2, but I wanted to make them BG friendly, and there are no 2x2s in BG, so they ended up 3x3.

w_sims
22nd Jun 2013, 3:48 PM
Thinking about it, I think I'd like to try my hand at judging, if that's ok! Pictures are beneath the cut!

jones, 2x2 is BG friendly. There is that tiny wooded house lot (http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_empty_Pleasantview_lots#10_Oak_Street) way away from the hood camera. You just can't get 2x2 starting plots.

justJones
22nd Jun 2013, 5:30 PM
Oh, so if I made a lot in an AGS with NL only. Since it's just walls, would it be BG friendly?

And you are welcome to judge, w_sims! My those houses look familiar...;)

Phaenoh
22nd Jun 2013, 5:42 PM
You'd be better off downloading a 2x2 minilot and build the walls on it in BG that way. The minilots were shrunk and poked to be BG, so doing it with NL will still require NL. This set is BG and has a 2x2: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=276944

justJones
22nd Jun 2013, 5:57 PM
I have those lots. I've never uploaded anything on one. Does the CC lot package with it? I'd like to avoid CC. Not that it really matters right now, I'd like to keep all the lots the same size anyway. But for future reference.

joandsarah77
22nd Jun 2013, 9:56 PM
I thought we were doing 2 by 2 until I loaded the lot up-I don't know why I thought that. So every building will be about the same size jones? Or is that something for you to know and us to find out? :lol: What I first planned won't work as Liv said, not enough outside space. I like the shape though, that will just make me think a bit more on where I place things.

Wait...does this mean that we're restricted to just the base game and OFB for the expansion content we use?

Karen Lorraine
22nd Jun 2013, 10:19 PM
Wait...does this mean that we're restricted to just the base game and OFB for the expansion content we use? I'm pretty sure you can use any expansions for this, just that it helps if you have OFB.

justJones
22nd Jun 2013, 10:28 PM
You can use whenever EPs you want, I just try to make the lots BG compatible in case some don't use EPs.

Jo, you probably though that because I said it, lol. I forgot that I ended up doing 3x3... some of the lots have a bit more outside space, but a little less inside.

joandsarah77
22nd Jun 2013, 10:29 PM
Wait...does this mean that we're restricted to just the base game and OFB for the expansion content we use?

I don't think you're restricted to anything -apart from not using pay custom content, that is restricted. Jones made the lot so that it could be used by people who only have the base game and OFB because not everyone has all the EP's.

I keep thinking your avi is karen's and karen's is yours. *dizzy*

You've said we can use stages outside for decoration purposes, does that include putting it on the roof to make a decent looking flat roof? :)

justJones
23rd Jun 2013, 1:00 AM
Yes, I'd say that's fine, as it would be inaccessible to sims. It's still just for decoration.

joandsarah77
23rd Jun 2013, 2:22 AM
Jones I'm wondering what the theme 'Hollywood' means exactly? I know it's the film capital of the US, but does that mean it must be about films or can it just mean wealthy? Guess you can tell what I'm building there now. :P

justJones

Well, I left the themes a little broad on purpose. But I would say it should at least have somethings "film" related. Even if it's just a very upscale, fancy shmacy decor with a handful of pics of movie stars on the walls...like this (http://www.google.com/imgres?biw=1600&bih=775&tbm=isch&tbnid=sL32RQA6uGj_qM:&imgrefurl=http://www.gogobot.com/planet-hollywood-resort-casi-las-vegas-hotel&docid=yG7W_8pUp0FyhM&imgurl=http://cdn2.gbot.me/photos/1B/ti/1289196557/Restaurant-Planet_Hollywood_Resort__-20000000001118725-500x375.jpg&w=500&h=375&ei=CVTGUZPvMIXL0gHA4YGoCg&zoom=1&ved=1t:3588,r:23,s:0,i:160&iact=rc&page=2&tbnh=186&tbnw=249&start=18&ndsp=24&tx=157&ty=72) , only not such an absurd amount of pictures ;)

Back again. :) About the table rule at least 8 tables Can side tables count in that 8 to hold champagne, deserts etc or does it have to be 8 tables sims can sit at? The rules don't specify that they have to be dining type tables, so can I get away with a combination of dining and side tables? Thought I better ask that before I build too far.

I'm still looking for the lights. They aren't called something obvious like 'snowmen lights'.

Lovely. the game won't start.... *sigh* Time to jettison the cc

edit: game working again...

I got the lights years ago....

2 easels, black board with ABC - Modena Kids Room easel by Funny ad pimp-my-sims.com
The colorful one is Kinderstaffeleo von feeEssen and www.sims2-feeEssen.de

Love your lot Bayou... I am not the contest maker but since It's not structural... It functions as a sign so I think that's ok. If I were judging, I wouldn't mark you down for that. Jonesi would have to say what she thinks.

Oh! If you put most of your images within spoiler tags, it will make the pages easier to load. Use this and take the spaces out.

It is purely deco, but it's still a wall. I will have to think about how to breakdown the structure scores. It wont cost you too much since it adds no "usable space".

Why not use a half wall? That won't cost you any points at all.

All right, here's my entry.

Introducing...Duck's Toy Store!

This is the first business I've ever built or played in TS2, but I managed to get it up to rank 4, so I guess I'm doing something right!

This store has three sections and sells ten different items, plus has two video-game racks. The items, along with their origins in game, are:

Toy Section:

Sir Bricks-A-Lot (crafted with toy bench)
Little Heroes Fire Truck (crafted with toy bench)
Clown-in-a-Box (crafted with toy bench)
Brink's Kite (crafted with toy bench)
Twirl, Spin, and Wobble! (crafted with toy bench)
Wet n' Wild Water Wiggler (crafted with toy bench)
Toy Robot (crafted with robot bench)


Game Section:

Maxis Game Simulator (Buy mode)

The two video-game racks are in the Game Section. There is also a demo Maxis Game Simulator hooked up to a wall-mounted TV.

Playground Equipment Section:

Swing Kidz Deluxe Swing Set (Buy mode)
Centrifun from Go Play! (Buy mode)


I created this build using all eight Expansion Packs, the Celebration Stuff pack, and no custom content.

It does look good, and I hate to dock, but rules are rules ;)


:!: For "new" contestants who aren't familiar with my contests, you are allowed to edit your entries up until the deadline. As a judge, I can tell you we'd prefer you did it sooner than later, and you should always post that you made edits. I personally try to judge them as they come. So if you edit, make sure to let us know so we can see your changes :)

Porky, were you intentionally calling me Jonesi? I know you are the typo queen ;) But either way it's funny because I have a cousin who calls me jonesi. Almost everyone in my family has called me Jones since I was little, little. My aunt started it and it's stuck. Sometimes I get thrown off if people use my real name, lol.

So did anyone see my question about shiny floors? Is it normal for them to look bluish in overheads?

justJones

jo, I downloaded some and tried them once and decided I didn't like them. If I remember correctly though, yes, they are bluish in overheads.

Jones, I've found some floors with shine that I'm going to try out today as reflective floors are rather too shiny for my liking. I'll have to see. So long as I don't get docked for poor colour choice because of how they look in overheads. The floor is a dark wood not bluish. I think in RL floors that shiny would make me dizzy.

justJones
25th Jun 2013, 11:16 PM
I wouldn't dock because of the overhead. sxybayoubrotha's floors are reflective and look bluish from overhead, but they are clearly black from other angles :) You're good to go, jo.

joandsarah77
25th Jun 2013, 11:42 PM

Two Questions:
1. You said no paysites, does this include items from the booty, but the site is now dead?
2. Items from the graveyard that were free to start with?

I would assume both are fine... :) But, I'm not the judge so don't listen to me. ;) :giggler:

I hope it's not too late to enter this contest. It looks like there are still enough room for more contestants, isn't there?

joandsarah77
27th Jun 2013, 11:37 PM
Jones needs 10 CrèmedelaCrème, or there won't be a contest! Please do enter.

With the pay site rulling. I'm assuming all TSR stuff is now on the okay list,since it's all gone free, even from featured artists?

justJones
27th Jun 2013, 11:43 PM
CremedelaCreme, yes, there's still room. You should get your application/round 1 entry up as soon as you can, just in case though ;) It's not likely, but it's possible, that it could fill up quick

Items from the graveyard that were free to begin with is fine. I don't know how I feel about the booty. I'm gonna say no. I think...

Jo, some how I totally missed your TSR question, but yes. Since it's all free now it's fine to use.

joandsarah77
28th Jun 2013, 12:23 AM
I think with these contests there are always lurkers who suddenly come out of the woodwork with entries a day before closing.

You're going to have a hard time enforcing that apart from people's honesty. Also some people may have files from downloading houses. Not from here but from other places. I know I have some old TSR stuff that I don't even know how I got. Bet it came off the exchange.

justJones
28th Jun 2013, 12:29 AM
Yeah, I know, Jo. It really is just an honor code type rule. Because we can't possibly track down every piece of CC you guys use. But I assumed since she bothered to ask, that'd she planned to try and stick to the rule ;)

joandsarah77
28th Jun 2013, 12:33 AM
I'd rather avoid TSR stuff altogether. When a piece of cc says it's from TSR I grumble to myself and then try and see if I can find it anywhere else so it isn't in my download folder any longer. Free or not I don't like TSR.

Always try and stick to the rules, rather ask and be told no than just plonk it in there and get growled at, or loose points! :D

Does building an upper story count as external walls? Currently, I have made the commercial building in my game to be two stories tall, with the upper story completely empty, giving a more stately appearance from the outside. I also don't have Apartment Life, so the upper story can help me hide the sky. :)

I also don't have Apartment Life, so the upper story can help me hide the sky. :) You will probably lose points for having an upper storey, whether it's empty or not. Why not use staging? Or perhaps you could take the internal pics with the upper storey in place (so you get ceilings) but remove it for the external shots?

justJones
28th Jun 2013, 7:12 PM
An upper story would cost you points. There maybe lots in later rounds with a second story, but this one is only single.

Just to be certain: I can use any type of standard roof that I want to, right? By "standard roof," I mean any roof you can make with the roofing tool in-game that doesn't involve adding extra walls or anything. (I see multiple styles in the current submissions, but I thought I'd ask.)

justJones
29th Jun 2013, 2:40 PM
Yes, esmeiolanthe, you are correct.

PSDuckie
29th Jun 2013, 3:51 PM
Does that include the flat roof I made with floor tiles? I'm just wondering whether I have to redo that.

justJones
29th Jun 2013, 4:22 PM
Yes, Duckie. That's fine.

joandsarah77
29th Jun 2013, 11:01 PM
I did a gable roof on the front of mine without even thinking about the extra roof triangle it made. But jones didn't say anything and if I had thought about it, well that wall comes with the roof and isn't added on via the wall tool so I would have assumed it was okay. Of course if I hadn't opened my big mouth I may have got away with 7 dining tables all with side tables for the champagne. :p

justJones
29th Jun 2013, 11:59 PM
No, you wouldn't have gotten away with it, jo ;) But yes, you are right, the roof tool is what is creating the wall. You didn't actually a wall, it just comes with the roof, lol.

I wasn't worried, although I was expecting there to be at least one or two more entries up after mine by now. There are only 4 days left on the clock so I hope they have their skates on. Or they have been building and decorating this whole time which will no doubt put my meager efforts into the shade!

EDIT: Sorry guys, I had to re-upload the images a little smaller - last time I was simming properly, it was on a much smaller screen and I never had to bother with resizing! Sorry if it caused anyone any issues, I'll make sure it won't happen again :rofl:

Hey! Can I come play too? ;-)

I decided to do the Country themed family friendly restaurant.
It has absolutely NO CC - and uses NL, OFB, SSN, and BV.

http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/6/7/4/2/4/7/MTS_CatherineTCJD-1372740-02WaitingForATable.jpg
Waiting for a table... there's ample seating and a swing set around the corner for the younger ones.
http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/6/7/4/2/4/7/MTS_CatherineTCJD-1372741-03BarnThemedBathrooms.jpg
Barn themed bathrooms - with changing tables in each.
http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/6/7/4/2/4/7/MTS_CatherineTCJD-1372742-04DiningRoom.jpg
There are two dining rooms. This one, with tables, has a stage for entertainment and a bar. The other dining room is all booth seating with hi-chairs at the ready.
http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/6/7/4/2/4/7/MTS_CatherineTCJD-1372743-05GreenRoom.jpg
A quiet oasis to get your act together before walking out on stage.
http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/6/7/4/2/4/7/MTS_CatherineTCJD-1372744-06KitchenCrew.jpg
Here is the Kitchen crew - hard at work (or is it, hardly working? *sheesh*)
http://thumbs2.modthesims2.com/img/6/7/4/2/4/7/MTS_CatherineTCJD-1372745-07BreakRoom.jpg
Employee break room, which doubles as the manager's office.

Whew! That was fun :rofl: Good luck everyone :Pint:

LOL, Kanzen ;-)
Not changing ROOMS, just changing tables - for the little ones, you know?

I went to a restaurant once, while out West on vacation when my baby was 6 months old, and they had no changing facilities for babies! The waitress said to just change her on the floor - and then shrugged (yes, she actually shrugged - like I was nuts.) I couldn't believe it!

I'd rather have put in the fold-down kind (I think MLC made those here on MTS?) But, I wanted a no CC entry.

kanzen
1st Jul 2013, 10:26 PM
OH right right tight xD sorry, typing at what 3am isn't really good xD
changing tables got it

And yeah a fold down one would've nailed it but I get what you mean. I wish I could've done mine without CC but it just wouldn't look right. Yours however looks stunning without CC great job ^ u ^

P.S. That waitress needs some proper manners re-education or something. Why even as a baby I wouldn't wanna be changed on the floor :U

Download the lot on the first page of this thread Skittle (is that okay to call you? You have a very long name!) You are allowed to build inside of it, but no adding full walls outside. You have to pick one of the 6 business's that jones has listed and decorate it to suit the one you pick. I think there are 3 days left.

Would be glad to have you as an EJ, Becca!

Glad to see you made it, karen :) I can see why it took you so long! There's a lot of stuff in there ;) Looks great though.

Night Racer and Skittles, my veteran contestant, jo, has answered you both correctly ;)

Haha veteran, yeah the way I feel today is like an old age veteran for sure. Jones knows I'll turn up like a bad err good penny at every one of her contests. :P Not that I win anything, I just enjoy participating.

karen I love your store! Especially the window displays. Can I ask what site did most of the displays come from or is it from all over? I'd love to have the recolours of the H&M display rack. So many pretty things in there.

justJones
2nd Jul 2013, 2:06 AM
I say veteran with much love, Jo :) It wouldn't be a contest without you. I love my "regulars" lol. I like meeting the new contestants, but I love my old, familiar "faces" as well.

When this round is closed, I'll post my play-along for this lot, though seeing all these wonderful entries, makes me really wanna redo my piddly little attempt...

I'm loving all the entries so far ~ and thankful that I'm not a judge ;) How in the world could you choose???

I've never done a contest like this - so I'm wondering: when do we get the next 'empty shell' to decorate? Do I have to wait 2 weeks?
Also, what is the protocol for uploading our lots to MTS? Should we wait until the whole contest is over? Or after each round?

Also wondering - does it matter one way or another if you use CC or not? This round I went with no CC, but if I do a clothing store or a bistro I'm definitely using LOTS of CC.

I can't wait to hear what everyone thinks... this is gonna be the loooongest 8 weeks of my life :)

joandsarah77
2nd Jul 2013, 2:47 AM
They do that. My daughter woke me at 3am the night before-for another blanket because she had decided a short sleeved pj top would do, when it didn't, but try telling an 11 year old you know better. :rolleyes: (it's winter over here) I grumbled, found her another blanket and told her I was well beyond 3am wake ups. :P I was so tired the next day!

CatherineTCJD, each round is 2 weeks and this one is nearly finished. Also you can use as much cc as you like, it just can't be paid cc or from the booty.

justJones
2nd Jul 2013, 3:06 AM
Also, Catherine, the next lot will go up when the round closes, i.e.the round 2 lot will go up Friday. We judge each round as we go, so ideally, you'll have your score for round 1 by next Monday or Tuesday. And we don't really have to choose...in theory you could all have a tie ;) As for uploading, you can do whatever you want, whenever you want. All I ask is that you credit the contest, something like Phae did here (http://bootstrap.modthesims.info/download.php?t=505888) with her Pleasantview entries. You don't have to, but I do appreciate it (Thanks, Phae!)

Jo, I'm not past the 3 AM wake-ups yet, lol. My almost 20 month old still gets up about half the time...

CatherineTCJD
2nd Jul 2013, 3:30 AM
Yes, it was Phae's uploads that got me thinking I might upload this one... I'll probably wait until after each round then.

3AM wake-ups, ugh... very strange, my 9 year old daughter woke me up just last night. It must be something going around. Whatever it is, I hope it's done! I didn't look at the clock, but it sure felt like 3 :(

joandsarah77
2nd Jul 2013, 4:34 AM
jones I hope your daughter learns to sleep through soon. I was spoiled that mine slept through most nights from about 4 months old and took an afternoon nap until 4 years of age as well.

CatherineTCJD, Let's hope there is nothing in the water as my body is way out of 3am practice.

You can submit your lot for upload in the usual way using the upload wizard if you wish to but it's not necessary for the contest. Better get your skates on as there's not much time left.

Le Premier Café de la Journée (The First Coffee of the Day)

If you're looking for the best coffee in Simnation, then there's only one place to go: Le Premier Café de la Journée! A small café with live entertainment, an inviting atmosphere, and (of course) COFFEE!

There is inside seating available as well as outside seating on the café's patio.

It's a lovely cafe but you need to provide more images :) (The required images are listed on the first thread) And I'm not sure about the roof top terrace or the full walls that you have built. I suggest you go and check the rules on the first thread :) You don't want to lose marks.

I think the walls on the second floor are okay, they're not really walls, just fencing and a half wall - that's actually tall enough to be a wall but isn't xD
I guess let's leave it to the host/judges?

Also, I feel like a kid. A tiny widdle kid. I'm 19 xD

Just wanted to write a quick post saying I love all your designs so far, especially Karen Lorraine's clothing store! I've been off work for two days with really bad hayfever (what a stupid thing to be ill with) and I read through your Pleasantview and Veronaville contests, marvelling at the CC ( and adding 1 GB to my downloads folder...)
@Karen Lorraine: I echo Jo and would love to know where you got all the displays from? And the mannequins too. One of my sims in my custom hood is opening her own fashion store and I'd like to include some displays.
I will be following the contest, and I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with! :)

Good afternoon - just checking in...

I love the look of seigyoku53227's cafe! But, please do check the rules in the first post. Halfwalls and fences ARE supposed to be OK, so you might be good - but double check just to be sure. And - I wanna see moar!!! I love looking at everyone's entries. It's amazing how different each one is :)

LOL - 19... I met my hubby when I was 18 (didn't marry until I was 20) we've been happily married now for 27 years. Yup, that makes me not quite 50 ;)

Aww too bad I'm just seeing about this contest now, I'm out of town and couldn't enter the contest before next Monday. But since I just entered grad school, I likely don't have the time to focus on this anyway. Good luck everyone and the pictures are great. Even if I entered, I don't know if I have enough CC to make really good businesses like you guys have.

i'm a terribly indecisive person, and having a look at my summer go-aways, i'm not sure i'll have enough time for this contest. so, instead of actually deciding whether to enter or not, i'll post what i've done because i'd like to share, but requesting that you don't treat it as an entry unless by the deadline there's still one open spot. no point taking away anyone else's fun.

i've had a go at the cafe, which doesn't have a name to boast. the lot is called cafe deco, not even with accents. it's been sort of fun, sort of not, and i can't imagine anything other than the family diner will appeal to my downloads folder. i have nothing fancy, nothing retro, and by god, i hate kids. and pets, but that's a side note.

disclaimer: it's the first time i'm uploading anything, bear with me while i figure out if i actually need to send those things to photobucket so that spoiler tags work. thx. got it

the outside is simple enough for bug-hunting and treasure-digging, with 2 benches for a quiet date. normally i'd place a pond, but normally i'd also have the house built over a latticed deck ;p

functional cafe for all. yes, i forgot the music, if you look back at the top-down view, it's placed behind the coffee counter, above a wall clock. fun-fact: i only realized its absence when i triple-checked the rules, because music is muted in my game. i absolutely hate eating sounds, so i play with some death metal stream yelling at me.

view along the corridor to the restrooms. fun-facts: yes, madam zarubin is a vampire. so is matthew smith. talk about moonlit garden inspections! and the little round window is for checking if the library is free.

this is to illustrate one of my other obsessions: street lamps on the other side; and to hint at the roof. there's a ;p face sketched with flooring, because the confines of walls and theme were too much for my fun. /e compensates
http://i437.photobucket.com/albums/qq100/saintdiana/sims/8outside2_zps66dbb022.jpg


edit to add: you all probably have cheerful neighbourhoods with nice families, decorations to cater all tastes etc. and here i am, misanthropic and OCD-ed with a downloads folder to suit the everlasting adult female knowledge sim, witch, possibly vampire, with a garden, pond, never a husband, maybe some quickly-grown kids who, if male, are forgotten in some dorm, if female, get added to same category, arts/nature/tinker hobbies all max, frequent fliers to takemizu. yeah, that sums it up. you'd think i get bored, but i doubt i ever will XD. you need someone to come last in this contest too, right? i can be that person. already i've learned 4 new things in 2 days, it's been an excellent experience :)

notorious cat lady
We had 7 one time. 3 elderly, 2 teens, and 2 babies. Plus one dog and one bird.

Now we've only got 3 - One who's seriously old. She wobbles around, queen of her world. And two rambunctious young bucks who don't always give her the respect that she deserves. Plus 2 ancient doggies. And one 9 year old kidlet.

Don't rush finding a soulmate ;-) It'll happen when it happens. And there ain't nothing wrong with the Cat Lady! I've got several cat ladies in Pleasantville. LOL :rolleyes:


I've been promoting this contest in other forums, hopefully we'll get a few more last minute divers.

Lovely cafe st_d, and don't you worry many of us frantically look for cc and add gobs of it just for these contests. The smart ones remove it once the photos are done or those like me just add it into a download folder the size of Manhattan (which I have no idea how large it is being Australian-but I've heard things) I have hoods of cave men, castaways and self sufficient hippies as well as regular families.

Karen thank you for those links, my download folder however large has very little shop type things. Could you point me to which one had the H&M t-shirt display recolour? Yours had flowers on the T-shirt.

And agreeing with Catherine, yes don't rush or you will regret. I was over 30 before I got married. And cat lady >cough< I have 3, my avatars are of cats and on LJ I am known as the crazy cat lady. :lol: You can be married with kids and still be a cat lady. My husband puts up with them under sufferance.

Just got back from the zoo, will update the table with new entries in a few.

Here is mine. Sorry for the crappy shots, I took them in a bit of a rush.
I went for "Hollywood: the City, the Lifestyle" rather than "Hollywood: The Movies"
A fancy little restaurant with equally little food portions, you would figure the price point would be little to match. Nope. A bowl of Imported Peruvian Cheddar mac & cheese will set you back 25 Simoleans. At least it has nice atmosphere, a perfect place to bring that special someone and pop the special question. Oh how special.
all links because I dont have time right now to resize and reduce to meet mts image posting guides. Im sorry guys. if I pass this round my next submissions will be more trimmed up. The short notice deadline got me.

The top right 2x2 party table, the host in my play test went into the corner to show the seat, then arm waved and yelled he couldnt get out 2 or 3 times (as he is doing in the picture) but then walked out just fine and sat everyone else. I dunno. And also the waitresses don't seem to want to use the dishwashers? Maybe its because they are custom. Who knows.

That's a really fancy place Night Racer, I love how you did the restrooms and I love your outdoor dining set too! Where did you get those tables and chairs? Love them!

--

About the soul mate marriage thing, I'm not really rushing - its my folks. I'm not allowed to have a boyfriend BUT they really stress out that I should do certain things to get a man, or I will be alone forever - BUT no boyfriends. It's really confusing. Should I? Shouldn't I? xD
Are my folks just turning indecis--more indecisive?

The whole cat lady concept is nonsense too, but that's not how the majority see it. Let me luv my cats, I ain't doin' anything to you :U
@Catherine and Jo - I had several cat people in my neighborhood too <3
When my sims get this want "get a kitten" I just immediately let them have the sweet widdle thing. I tend to ignore the "get a puppy" wants though ahahaha

Night Racer, I believe they will want the pictures to show up here in your post, not in your photobucket and you will need a floor plan picture. Looks like a nice place. :)

Kanzen, seeing you're 19 you can do what you like, but I think your folks mean they would like you to find someone who you can be serious about rather then casually dating and dropping, dating someone else and dropping and so on. They may see 'boyfriend' as a causal type thing. Why don't you ask them to explain themselves?

we can change/update our entries? I really need to reshoot the floorplan xD It's not that clear.

@jo - oh I've asked them, and all they do is grumble and walk away xD
I'll just let it go xD

Night Racer, if you just use the image links instead of the url links to photobucket, you wont have to resize, MTS will do it automatically. You would only need to resize to upload them directly to MTS. Also, only 8 pics please and you do need a top down pic.

Karen - Oh, those are shopping carts around the corner! What a GREAT idea! Your new pix are better... when I read you'd changed them I thought, oh NO you can't improve perfection. But, then you did :lovestruc

I probably ought to make changes to mine too - I meant to add indoor plants, but forgot. And I never thought to add a second floor just for the ceiling pictures - what a brill idea! - My real game has every EP/SP so I don't worry about ceilings; but I used AGS with limited EPs for this. I don't know if I'll have time to mess with it though... we'll see. :turtle:

Thank you Catherine :feeling bashful:

FYI you don't actually need to create a new level to have ceiling tiles on the ground floor. If you go up to the roof you can place tiles there which will create the default ceiling tiles on the inverse.

@judges - I changed all the pictures

now it finally feels right. I also play-tested and no foot stomping occurred *whew*

the top down pic is the very last link in the spoiler.
Ill try to figure out what you all are talking about after work, i came home on a break really quick. Every time I try to image post with a photobucket link I get all these errors about size and whatever. Maybe im doing it wrong I dunno. Ill figure it out tonight. also only 8 pics? Bah. Ill figure which ones to remove too.

Sorry I missed the top down. The last pic wouldn't load for me. It's overcast so my internet is uber slow cause it's crappy.


just copy the direct link and use it with the image tags

this image is considerably bigger than the MTS limits.

Thanks for the tip - I kinda thought it might work that way. I hope I get time to rephoto!


I changed all the pictures now it finally feels right.

Again, I was worried about you messing around with perfection; but the new pix look great! :up: I love the little private outdoor eating area off the office - was that there before? I usually add little hidden areas in all my buildings... don't know why I didn't this time. Ah, well, back to work :cool:

I don't know when you wanted to start judging, but I'm going to be MIA this weekend starting tomorrow. Today I finally got the call I've been dreading for a month. Our family cat Boots has passed away. Her funeral will be tomorrow before the fireworks. She was diagnosed with stomach cancer a year and a half ago. I'm heartbroken over it, but very glad that I had gone home this past weekend to care for Bootsie while my mother was out of town. She was not nearly old enough to die yet, she should have had at least another 5 living the cushy life of an indoor cat. If anyone had noticed that I'd been markedly quiet so far its because I've been dealing with this. I hope you won't need to pull in the EJ, as I'm thinking that a good long task of judging will help distract me from real life soon.

Awww, I'm so sorry Phae. I was hoping to have them by Tuesday. If you could get them by Wednesday though, I think we could wait. It's always hard to loose a pet. They are a part of the family. I still miss dogs we had when I was a kid.

Oh Phae I'm sorry to hear that. :( I'm glad you got one last weekend with her!

CatherineTCJD

Oh Phae! I'm so sorry to hear :(
It is heart-breaking when a little one goes "over the bridge" - just remember: she's not in any pain now, and you'll see her again someday.

I've lost 2 who were too young to die (both strictly indoor house-kitties - one was 12, the other 14) both had stomach cancer too. Bootsie didn't happen to eat Purina Cat Chow did she?

I'm so sorry you're going through this. It hurts. It stinks! Take time to grieve and to remember the good times. You'll never forget her; and it will get easier. Love and hugs to you and yours.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. Jones, I'll do my best to do them asap. Maybe I'll find an empty moment one evening this weekend. This cat was mine, I picked her out when I was 15. We had her for 11 years. Catherine, I'm sorry to hear about your cats as well, and I'm terrified to think that maybe yes, Purina was one of the dry foods we would rotate through. I will mention it to Mom and she will likely remove it so our other cats don't share Boots' fate. I was concerned that maybe it was because we'd give her bits of ham and pork from table scraps occasionally. Pig meat has a pretty bad reputation in lots of circles.

I'm really sorry for your loss Phae! :cry:

CatherineTCJD
4th Jul 2013, 4:28 AM
Phae - We never let them eat table scraps! Your kitty was extra lucky ;-)
So long as the pork was cooked to human standards, it should've been fine. When we lost our second kitty to tummy cancer our vet at the time asked if we were feeding Purina Cat Chow - and that was all they had ever eaten! She suggested maybe we should switch to Iams. That was about 8 years ago. And, I must say, our young boys (who are now 4, I think) are very healthy.
Love and hugs - I hope you find time to relax this weekend.

So sorry about your cat Phae. It's very sad when a pet, especially one you have had for some years dies. :(

kanzen

I offer my condolences Phaenoh D:

and dear me, I feed my cats Purina! Q u Q
Had a quick discussion with my classmates and they said I should switch to Princess and Iams....never heard of the brands but the vet recommended it and its cheaper than most brands.

Phae, so sorry, I know how you're feeling as my beloved Pepsi died last year from bowel cancer. He was only 12. It does get easier as the days pass, but as some of the others have mentioned you never forget them. At least you know he's no longer suffering.

Your cat is in a better place away from the suffering
My cat Nimbus died in 2006 and he was 16 but and had cancer on his nose he was sometimes abit grumpy but he was a good cat

I hope I've made it in on time. Been spending a while on this one to find the right content I was after but am quite happy with the result. I hope you all like it as well :)

Anyway to the point, here's my upscale restaurant "Metro".

Just so judges don't miss anything, there's everything included, haven't added, modified or removed any structural placements.
- A total of 10 tables including the lounge tables (yes they are dining chairs in disguise)
- Restrooms for both male and female hidden towards the back corner of the restaurant
- Piano for entertainment
- Large open style layout including centralised bar
- Discreet staff access to the kitchen and bar
- Seating in entry area for those rich Hollywood sims waiting on a spare seat (this place would be packed)
- Numerous decorative objects and fittings to ensure sims are getting their value for money
- Last but not least a modern style kitchen for those delicious meals to be prepared

Note: I know this doesn't necessarily look like Hollywood, however I feel it would fit in perfectly there :)
