Just a reminder that the Contest started a Day Late and so will end tonight at 11:59pm rather than yesterday, probably a little bit late for some of you but if anyone still has time then you can still enter! (Apologies for locking it earlier but I clocked my mistake and have unlocked the thread now!)

Building Contest 2012: 12 - Luxurious Lifestyle  - June 16, 2012 - June 29, 2012
    Ausette!

Congratulations Ausette!  Every entry you build just continues to be in that top few, most often than not - the top entry! The SS Simoleon is just so imaginative and captures the brief fantastically! You can see Ausette's Entry here and download it here.



Ausette's Comment:

"Wow, this contest was really hard to budget for! I'm in awe of all the entrants who built actual mansions for 100,000 simoleons. My first attempt went over the price limit very quickly, so after that I had to sit down and think about how to build something cheaper. My first instinct was to downsize, but how could I build in a cramped little space while still maintaining an air of luxury? It didn't take long before the rooms I was building began to look like rooms in a boat. I ran with that idea and I had such a great time building and taking screenshots for the contest. Thanks to all who voted, and great job to all who participated!"

Congratulations Ausette! Since it's been a delay in getting this finished off Ausette's comment will be added as soon as I get it from her. Comments are now allowed in this thread.
