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.

Great ideas deenahax. I forget that for challenges the lots don't actually need to function for normal game play! Thanks for the feedback.  :)

@MrsFlynn, temperatures have been so cool in our neck of the woods that it does feel like April rather than May. Still, I think you'll be announcing the winner on May 29th. ;) Great idea for a challenge, and the entries are all lovely.

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!

@Magpie2012 yes, totally ok to chat here about building challenge and I agree. It's been amazing watching the builds come in! It takes me days to pick just one as I have to go away and think about it and then view them all again and so on. Good to see you again Mags.  :)

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!! :)

Foundation Challenge Poll - Cast Your Vote!!
http://www.carls-sims-4-guide.com/forum/index.php?topic=28519.0

Voting close date has been changed to Mon. May 30th as well to help give extra time to revote.

We're really -really- Sorry for the inconvenience. We won't be doing that again!!

Thank you!!

-- Sorry for the double post - here and on the challenge board. We want to make sure everyone sees the message to revote. The double post on the challenge board will be deleted after the poll has closed.

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

I entered the Foundation Challenge contest, but I never got any messages back and my entry isn't displayed :( I sent my submission to @Playalot and @MrsFlynn. Would either of you be able to see if perhaps my message never got through to you?

Forum Location of New Building Challenges
« Reply #68 on: June 02, 2017, 06:44:24 PM »
When it's time for a new building challenge, will there be a new topic under the main Building Challenges category?  If not, where will new building challenges be located or where will the link to each be?
