2017 TS4 Building Challenges Discussion Thread
« on: January 17, 2017, 08:06:29 PM »
The 2017 Building Challenge is now live with our first challenge being dedicated to toddlers. Each month we will post a new challenge with it's own rules. You can enter just one or them all. Of course we hope you will enter them all but that is entirely up to you.

At any time you can ask MrsFlynn or Playalot for clarification or the rules or post any general questions here in this thread. Please do not post anything that is a strategy or tip so that we can ensure everyone has a fair opportunity for completing each challenge.

Let the 2017 Building Challenge Begin!

Here is a link to the rules and challenge:

I started participating in the tournament challenge on this forum last fall, but I didn't know there was a building challenge too. This makes me very happy.

Looking forward to participating.

Thank you for asking, MoveObjects (MOO) is NOT allowed. Enlarging Objects IS allowed.

@MrsFlynn I have edited your post to reflect the correct rules. Sorry for putting you wrong this morning.  :-\

So MOO is allowed? I thought the Bheeda toddler renovation rules said MOO was not allowed. Just want to be sure before I start.

Thanks for asking about the cheats. I have pmed Play to get some clarification on the cheats - if they're actually allowed or not.

I have never tried this. I just mocked something up according to the instructions, with $19,500, no cheats or even resize. 

But, I do have a question regarding the included details and the personalities. Since Jesminder has the mixologist aspiration, is three+ barstools on a counter an acceptable replacement for the dining table and two chairs?

This is really a strategy question and as such I will simply reply that the rules state which items are required.  :) And I'll leave it up to you to decide what items may reflect the young couples personalities etc. I'm really happy you're giving it a go as that is what it is all about.

I think there's a typo on the rules page. You've got:

Quote
Your budget is $20,000. You must bulldoze the lot and start with an empty apartment. You will need to enable testingcheats on and then use the cheat money 20000

but then later, in the 'setting up your file' bit

Quote
Next type money 19500 and hit Enter. Finally, type testingcheats off and hit Enter.

Presumably the first line is right?

*massive face palm* yes 2000 is the correct figure. I've corrected that now. Sorry... proof reading obviously didn't work there! Thank you for bringing that to our attention.  :)

Thanks for everyone's patience. It's amazing how much there is to think about setting these challenges up (this is my first time giving it a go... lol, like you can't tell!!) but it's been a blast so far and of course MrsFlynn is a pro.  ;)

Are we going to have a "Hall of Fame" for the winners? Not something complex like Boss-man has for the Tournament, just a page where it says the challenges (in date order) with the winning entry under each heading.

Thanks, everyone! Jesminder and Arun are some of my favorite townies from San Myshuno. I really enjoyed remodeling their apartment for their new addition.

Thanks again to @Playalot and @MrsFlynn for putting so much personality into a building challenge. I had lots of fun with this build, and the next one looks awesome, too.

Please note that today I made a slight change to the way MOO may be used. Now the rules state that the move objects cheat can be used for anything outside the house.

We'd like to post a reminder that we require entry photos be in .jpg format, please. They are easier to upload to an image hosting service, plus easier to load for the viewer. As keep in mind some members are using mobile or slower internet.

If you don't know how to convert .png files into .jpg. We do suggest using Irfanview.

How To: Use IrfanView to convert photos into .jpg format
http://www.wikihow.com/Use-IrfanView

Download IrfanView from Cnet.com
http://download.cnet.com/IrfanView/

If you don't want to use that program. You can use your own photo editor, load the photo and export the images as .jpg.

I saw a building challenge posted by @Playalot in the gallery.  That looked like the new building challenge to me, but I can't find the ruleset or any other information on the forum.  Maybe I missed it somehow.

Quick clarification on the foundations building challenge:
As stated above, the top down view should still resemble the original lot. This means:
no over hangs for more space and
no adding basements.

-- Does that mean it has to be a one floor structure? I understand we can do split level.

In the rules specific for this challenge is does state:

Quote
You may adjusting the height of the foundation but any steps up need to be incorporated into the existing foundation as you may not add on a porch or veranda.
Creating split level rooms in the foundation is permitted.

Not sure what a split level room is? You'll find that explained here:
http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/tutorials/building/split-levels-lofts.php

If you'd like to read over the challenge information:

Foundations? What Foundations? (S4 Building Challenge #3 2017)
http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php?topic=28419.msg465204#msg465204

Also, we'd like to add:

No basements, no underground building at all,  but anything above ground is fine as long as it does not overhang the original shape... so no adding extra space through hangovers. 

To answer the question - Yes to split levels, and you get to decide how many floors you want above ground.

Foundation Challenge Reminder
« Reply #46 on: May 12, 2017, 03:49:01 PM »
Thank you to all that have entered!!

We wanted to post a reminder for those who are still thinking about entering - Deadline for photos is Fri. May 19th

Please be sure to upload images to Imgur in .jpg format so the photos are easier to work with, upload and view. It also helps make sure that the challenge remains anonymous and fair for everyone - the builds get judged by their own merits, not by who built it.

More information on the Challenge in the post linked below:

Foundations? What Foundations? (S4 Building Challenge #3 2017)
http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php?topic=28419.msg465204#msg465204

How to: Convert photos to jpeg format
http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php?topic=25154.msg427387#post_JPG

If you're wondering why do the photos have to be in .jpg format?

Not only are .jpg file sizes a lot smaller than .png, they're easier to upload to image hosting sites, easier to view because they load quicker and easier to work with.

Read the post linked below about About the default images that come from Sims 4. It's an interesting read, and will explain in more detail why it's better to use .jpg for sharing on the internet.

Hi everyone. Just thought I'd give you all the opportunity to post some ideas on the kind of building challenges you might like to see come up in the months ahead. Or maybe just give some feedback on how you think it is all going so far etc.

It's all very well with me coming up with ideas etc but if it is not touching on the kind of building projects or themes you would like to try then it isn't really serving the community correctly.  :)

Let me know below what you think.  :)

@Playalot --- I love the ideas that you've come up with in these building challenges!  They're all unique and all great.  Therefore, whatever you come up with will be awesome 8)!

I liked not having a budget on the current building challenge, but I don't mind if other challenges have one --- although, building without a budget has always been my favorite way to build --- in this case, if challenges would still be challenging, as this one is.

I can't come up with a challenge idea tonight, but I'll post here if I do.

I've been playing with the idea of multi-unit/structure lots like townhouses, motels and resorts. Of course they don't function that way but the lots look cool.

Also I really liked the foundations challenge, what about another with a partial build to start with? For example, converting a restaurant to home or a home to a office building.

Not sure whether we are allowed to reply on the thread, since I've been away from the Forum for a while. However, I just had to tell the contestants that they are so super talented and it was so difficult picking just one! And, I hope these will be up on the Gallery, both as full homes and separate rooms, very soon!!!

Good luck everyone!

Poll Hicup, Please Re-Vote?
« Reply #61 on: May 27, 2017, 11:26:54 PM »
I found when I went to change how many we could vote for, (because we got 8 entries, and it's -way- to hard to just pick one.) It allowed for that change. But I wasn't able to choose my 2nd choice.

Play and I talked it over and decided to try resetting the votes and add back who got what votes might help. It didn't. It won't allow edits in that manner.

Could we get everyone to re-vote, please? - You can now vote for 2 entries!! :)

Challenge Idea --- small lot, big family with only base game allowed

Must haves:
Roof deck, which spans the entire roof
3 floors below the roof, as well as 2 basement levels required
Base game only --- everywhere on the lot --- to increase difficulty for many participants
Must be on a 20X15 lot of your choice (to increase difficulty)
Built for 2 parents and 6 children to increase difficulty, in general --- each child must have a bed, desk, dresser, toys, and at-home playground of some kind
All cheats allowed
No budget
