Less Can Be More
« Reply #45 on: May 29, 2013, 05:04:20 PM »
I'd like to propose a new building challenge: Small Can Be Beautiful. The challenge is to create a house and yard with the "beautifully decorated" moodlet in every room, on a single Sim's starting budget. What makes this challenging? After you submit the house, it's going to be voted on by other people, who might not favour the mishmash you're likely to get if you just choose a collection of stuff with high environment ratings.

That's easy to do though - if you hide enough objects from buydebug using MOO. Some of the objects in there have +6 environment, and cost §0. Or stacking Dragon Vases.

True, and I hadn't thought of it, but such blatant cheating is not likely to go over well with the other players voting on the result.

I don't think it's cheating - it's strategy in normal builds.

If there are objects there then you can use them in the Contests. However it does go against the spirit of the challenge should we use it. ;) Not actually sure what Environment Rating (How many +s) result in the moodlet, I'd assume 40 cause that's the bonus of the moodlet?

Seems like a fairly high demand for moodlet based contests, I'm sure something will pop-up in the future! Also, the Evil Lair thing sounds interesting, I have a plan formulating as I type.

I don't think the recreating your own houses idea will happen, it's quite personal.

Not only personal, but in my case, impossible - unless EA bring in multi-level stair cases that turn back on themselves :/

How about a contest where we have to build our house in real life in the Sims.

If you find that building our own house is too personal , we could maybe build our Dream House on a Snob Budget with certain specs of course .  :)

That makes a bit more sense. Although, in my case, my dream house might exceed the highest lot requirement...

Feedback:  I really like the idea of the Dynasty Designs contest.  I can't wait to see all of the entries.  I am hoping that someone will do a house for the Life States Dynasty.  I had put in a request way back when they did the Life States Race challenge.

What would be super neat would be something based off a common theme, whether it be a TV show, book, or video game.

For those unfamiliar with the game, maybe the post could include some pictures or a video showing the theme/idea of the game/tv show/book.

For example, if we were to make houses based off the video game Legend of Zelda, Skyward Sword, we would include some pictures of houses, concept art, and maybe a video of the inside of a house already existing for inspiration. (including colour schemes and others for more 'abstract' games.)

There was a group project last year where a tomb had to be built under Christopher Steel's house.

I'm curious as to what sort of style of Contest people prefer? Do you prefer the more traditional, family home style Contests or the wackier, unusual Contests like the Steampunk one? Personally I thought those Steampunk entries were simply stunning with the creativity in that thread! So which style do you all prefer?

I prefer the wacky and unusual ones personally. I think they bring out the creativity in all of us ;)
