« on: March 23, 2013, 10:34:18 AM »



Building Contests 2013: 6 - Dream Dormitories


   

The Task:
Dorms are almost as important as the education at University. Dorms are where the parties and cool kids are at, of course there are Fraternities and Sororities but they can be fairly snobby. It's the Dorms that have the most fun, so a Dorm is very important. Your task is to build the perfect dorm, with all the party requirements to have a vibrant social life but also to have some chance at keeping up with the work load!


Additional Information:
If you do not own University you may still take part, instead of having a Dormitory Lot you can build a Residential Lot with 8 Beds. If you own University Life you will find the Dormitory Lot Designation under Community Lots.


Entry Specifications:
  • Lot Type: Residential or Dormitory
  • Lot Size: 30x30 or Larger
  • Budget: $150,000
  • Content Restrictions: There are no additional content restrictions.
  • Number of Bed Spaces: Minimum of 8 (Must be separate Beds)

Okay, asked question on facebook, but am still slightly confused since I have never entered a contest. How do I go about submitting entry? Posting it on the forum and all? Do I upload it to the Sims 3 site and post link? Or do I package it and post a link to the package?

An entertainment room, normally for relaxing in. Ah, I had forgotten to put the kitchen on the list! :P I will add it to optional specifications but I'm sure people will include one, it's optional since some may not have and we're a few days in so don't want to force anyone to add something else in if they don't want to.  :)

Yes. What the rule means is that you need to make sure 8 Sims can have a bed each, you couldn't have say 4 double beds because the Roommies wouldn't sleep in the same bed.

Rainbow Rooms - Dormitory

Lot size: 30 x 30
Catalog price: £107,644
Lot Type: Dormitory
Accomodation: 8 beds, 2 baths, kitchen/common room, party room, study, secret room
Expansions required: World Adventures, Ambitions, Pets, Generations, Showtime, Supernatural, University (patched to 1.50.56)
Store content: None
Swap Shop content: 3/4 tiled wall - Too Fudgy For Ducks


So, you're about to start on the next adventure in life by going to university?  Well, you'll need somewhere to stay and, if you take the advice of Professor Samoht04 who said that dorms are where the parties and cool kids are at, then you'll be looking for a dorm.  Well, look no further, you've found one.

The Rainbow Rooms dormitory compound is divided into three annexes: sleeping, studying and socialising.  The separation ensures that any wild partying will not disturb the serious student or disrupt the sleep of anyone on a different schedule.

Sleeping accommodation is provided by an annex of eight separate rooms. Each complete with bed, dresser, desk and bookcase. All that is missing is you and your personal affects.  Please note that these rooms are single occupancy only, however there are several opportunities for couples to become closer provided within the compound.

The study annex is furnished with a vast array of books, two desktop computers (with space for you to use your personal laptop) and a seating area for reading or discussion in front of the white board. A secret room contains the sustenance to enable you to study long hours, if necessary.

The social annex contains the common room, with a large flat screen tv and gaming console, the fully functional fitted kitchen and the party room, that is dedicated to music and dance.

The compound also contains two bathrooms, two herb gardens, a photo booth, a hot tub and a little something for the stargazer.

During your stay, at Rainbow Rooms, please avail yourself of one of the bicycles, the cars or perhaps indulge your inner rebel by riding the custom made pink motorcycle.

We look forward to welcoming you.






Please Note:
  • There may be an issue with the door to the secret room. If your sim complains that they can't open it, please go into build/buy mode and move the door out and back into position; they will then be able to use the door.  Apologies for not being able to solve this.
  • If you do not wish to download the bathroom tiled wallpaper then I believe that the game will just replace it with an alternative.
  • The lot should be placed on a community lot space (visitors allowed).  When placed, the dustbin/garbage can has a tendency to jump from its position at the back gate, by the cars, out to the front gate. I've also found that the notice board/mailbox tends to jump around to the right front of the building. I have no idea why it does this.  Activate 'moveobjects on' to put it back, in front of the tree.
  • Finally, if you place the dormitory in a 'normal' town, you'll have a community lot with a working stove.  Well, I thought that was interesting, anyway  ;D

Welcome fresh faced University hopefuls!

We are pleased you decided to stay at the Key 2 Knowledge Dormitory Complex, where we offer you the chance to assert your new found independence by acquiring an us vs. them mentality by joining one of our two houses. Let me show you around...

Let's start our tour at the main quad where you can work out to our superior sound system, drink all the juice you'll never need and build roaring bonfires. If you get sleepy why don't you snuggle up in one of the sleeping bags?



Key Hall
The building where our two houses can meet across party lines.

Ground floor

In the entryway/stairway the prizes won by our previous alumni is displayed and a large notice board helps you keep updated about current activities in the house.

The kitchen/dining room has assigned seating for each house, with a neutral outdoor seating area for "mixed" company. The large herb and coffee garden adjacent to the kitchen provides you with everything you could need. 

There is also a TV/Arcade room where you can relax, play video games, get a sugary treat or even smack some gnomes! If you fancy something more athletic step outside for some soccer or a game of catch.

Second floor

Shuffleboard, chess or darts - the upstairs lounge is the place to be if games of chance and skill interest you. This is also where our famous debate team practice and where former alumni come to inspire you with their life stories.

The library is well equipped with bookshelves and computers. Each house has their own designated computer easily recognized by color. There are also 2 semi-private study areas with Key Hall computers you can book on the downstairs notice board. If reading is your cup of tea, cozy up in the beanbag chairs or enjoy fresh air on the balcony.

Basement

Key 2 Knowledge Dormitories have decided to forgo the house rule when it comes to bathroom facilities in favor of the more conventional males with males and females with females. Each of the 2 bathrooms have 3 showers and 3 toilets to share. There are also dressers if you need a change of wardrobe.

Are you of a more supernatural persuasion? Does sunlight burn your skin or force you to resort to sparkling skincare? If so Key Hall offers special housing in the crypt. There is also a sarcophagus where you sleep like a king. (If you are of the fairy variety there is a lovely cottage by the herb garden.)

Do you wish your room was larger? Did the former resident leave a ton of junk you want to get rid of? Do you need somewhere to build your Secret Laboratory or Bat Cave? Do not fear, each house has a large room in the basement that you can rent or "acquire". You will have all the space you need.

Rooftop

What would University life be without rooftop parties? Dance all night long, mix some great drinks or play your music to your adoring fans. The possibilities are endless.



Go Pterodactyls! Go Marsupials!

Situated on either side of the main quad the Dino Annex and Kangaroo Row each feature 4 individually designed rooms in tune with their house's theme.

Those more artistically inclined are encouraged to stay at the Dino Annex while those rooting for hard science or even harder muscles should check out Kangaroo Row. Each house has a designated skilling/recreation area on the rooftop as well as an attached bicycle garage.



I hope you will enjoy your time here at the Key 2 Knowledge Dormitory Complex. Go forth and study, learn and be inspired. But don't forget the extra curricular activities.

Now, lets paaarty!

Legitimate Business Dormitory - (Dormitory)
Lot Size: 40x40
Lot Value: $149,993
Suggested Placement: 531 S Bend Ave, University World
Content Used: All Expansions
Number of Bed Spaces: 8
Number of Bathrooms: 3
Description: The School of Legitimate Business & Other Serious Studies converted this former office building into a dormitory for its students.  It has everything an ambitious student needs to get ahead in the world of legitimate business.  The old call centre serves as a quiet study hall where students can focus on their assignments.  Students can make contacts and develop relationships in the school spirit atrium on the main floor.  When they need a pick me up they can mix up a drink, grill up some lunch, or grab a quick bite from the barista bar.* 

The School of Legitimate Business & Other Serious Studies encourages its students to develop their bodies as well as their minds.  On the second floor there's a gym with a wide variety of activities to train everything from muscles to reflexes.  Sometimes students need to simply relax and set aside the strenuous curriculum of legitimate business studies, which is why there's a cosmic black light bowling alley and lounge in the basement.  Other forms of relaxation include enjoying a toasty bonfire out back under the gaze of friendly Pyrosaurus Wrex, official mascot of the School of Legitimate Business & Other Serious Studies.**  Students can even study the stars up on the roof using new state of the art telescopes.*** 

Modern accommodations provide everything a student requires.  They can brush up on their charisma while brushing their teeth in the co-ed washrooms.  Each student gets a private room where they can rest after a busy day of learning.  Enrollment is always ongoing, so don't hesitate a moment longer - contact the School of Legitimate Business & Other Serious Studies and sign up today!

Sorry, I know this is late to ask questions. I'm hoping to get my entry in today! But was just looking at the requirements and noticed that you ask for 8 bedrooms and 8 bed-spaces. Just want to clarify this: Do there HAVE to be 8 SEPARATE bedrooms? Or can I have, say, 4 bedrooms as long as the Dorm can sleep 8 people?

Thanks!

Ideally yes, 8 separate bedrooms. However as long as your Dorm can sleep 8 sims I guess that's okay. It would be better if there was the option for a Sim not to share though, personally I don't like my sims sharing dorm rooms - the roomeis stink, Lol.

Lol ok. Well I've managed 6 bedrooms, so there'll be at least 2 bedrooms with only a single bed in for those Simmies who hate sharing ;)
