I SO want to play with this house~~! One day I'll play just for fun.

 Right now my personal request would be for a house that can be placed on sloped or very uneven terrain.  I've been working on my Twinbrook renovation project so putting in a lot of lots where they would not normally be.  Sometimes this means salt water or streams underneath and almost always it means uneven terrain.  Most of the lots will be very small, under  30X20.

Also, I'd like to see a child friendly "hang out".  Something small but very oriented towards toddlers and children.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

Joria have you seen my How to Build on a Slope article?  It's pretty much impossible to place a house on a slope unless that house was made specifically for that exact lot (as you've seen with your junkyard woes).  Is there a particular lot you were looking at?

We can put them up on the list but I think that may be a long term request.  ;)

@ Ruby - If you can post some details then I will update the list.  ;)

@ Joria - If you want me to take your Request down just say so, if you want to keep it up then that is fine.

I have a request!  I'd like a vacation house for China.  The lot is somewhat small, perhaps 20 x 30.  Maybe a little larger.  I'm looking at the empty lots on Ancestor Hills or whatever it's called.  I'd like for it to be very immersed in the Shang Simla culture.  Most of the stock houses have a lot of brown, both outside, on the roof, and inside.  I'd like a nice color for the color scheme.  Like Slate Blue or Rose or a subtle green.  I'd like for the main color to run through out the house with some other colors used for tasteful accents.  It needs to hold 5 to 6 Sims, some a married couples, some as single.  All the decor should be Chinese using the pieces that came with World Adventures and/or the pieces from the Asian Fusion set.  I don't want the traditional red and black.  Big kitchen, active living area, and at least 3 bathrooms.  Room for a garden and a pool, as well.  Any questions, just ask!  I'm mostly directing this at TommyT and Samoht, but anyone is welcome to jump in.  It would be extra cool if it has some unusual lines or interesting shapes.

Thank you!

AWESOME!!!!  I saw the picture~~!!!! Ok, so where can we download it?  It is really terrific.  I've been fooling around with multi-levels but never anything as open and playful as this.  Reminds me of a camp here in Oregon where you follow this very long trail through the woods at tree canopy height!  I kid you not.  It's a wonderful place and of course, the bonus at the end of the trail is a zip line.  No, haven't done it, just saw it on a local Oregon adventure show. 

Thanks so much for doing this one and my apologies for not responding sooner.  I've been super busy with contests and challenges and what not.  I should have found time.

Actually though, what I had in mind was a hangout that was more family/kid oriented.  Adults can play and have fun, (chess, gnub?), and kids can too.  I'd love to see even things like hopscotch layouts and all. 
We just really need more stuff like that in game.  A swing, slide and plastic play house is cool but just not enough.

Edit:  found the link and downloaded it!  Thanks so much.  You know, with a little expansion it could actually be a for real house in the swampier areas in Twinbrook.

Hi Tommy!  Nope.  Didn't see that one but will go there and do the homework.  Thanks so much for doing it and giving me the link.

Ooooo~  Can't wait to see it!  I posted my September contest house.  Love some critique on it.  You can PM me if it will not be kosher to do it publicly.  The stairs to the upstairs looks like it has bare ground under it.  For some reason the picture blanked out the sides of the stairs which match the dining room walls.  It was hard to get good photos of this one.

Thanks samoht04, I'm sorry I didn't post back sooner. I'm looking for an small island so I'll post critria below-
Must have some texture, possibly hills and a small oasis (oasis must be reasonbly close to a road, so a lot can have a small part of the water on it)
It should have a desert look, with sand.
The island must have one or two beaches.
Regular OR sand style roads, up to the creator.
No lots, apart from one to three legacy size.
No dead end roads.
Enough room for all rabbit holes plus extras including Night Life
Phew! Not asking for much, am I? ;)

Pam, I might just give this a go... I don't imagine it will be very good though :-[
So, does it need to absolutly only WA/Asian Fusion objects?

I'm so sorry I didn't answer this sooner!  No max price on it.  It just needs to fit on one of the normal Shang Simla lots that are vacant at the start of the game.

@Ruby:  Those are the only Chinese looking items I have, so that's how it will have to be designed.  If you don't have Asian Fusion, just go without it.  :)

Ok Pam. I've finished the building and I'm just working on the bedrooms. (2 singles, 2 doubles) Two ensutite bathrooms, one living area bathroom and an shared bathroom included. Large formal dinning room, with an attached kitchen (With has breakfast bar seating) Large upstairs study/library area. Spacious lounge and bathroom. The home is done in traditional Chinese style with a dining room/kitchen in one building, a living room (lounge) bathroom in another, and yet another for sleeping. I hope this is OK! :)

Mine is quite small, it has a Living Room, Kitchen and a Bathroom downstairs, it has Three bedrooms upstairs and a bathroom. But it also has a large basement which I left alone for you to convert into some extra accommodation or workshops.

This is also my first Chinese style home so it probably isn't the best! Can't wait to see what Ruby comes up with!  :)

Wow, that sounds like a big house!  :D I think it probably has everything Pam wanted!

Hmmmmm, I think mine may fall down on the pool, if that means a swim-able one. I suppose you could get rid of the pond at the front...
