Saltpastillen's Comment:

"I'm blown away to win this contest. There were so many exciting and interesting builds, I think all the entries were great. I had so big plans for this challenge, but with the limited funds this was the compromise I arrived at where I could use as many University items as possible. Realizing I could use the roofs as extra rooms was what really made it come together. The rooftop party area was inspired by my own dorm in University. The greatest parties were always held on the roof."

RaiaDraconis's Comment:

"Wow. I am absolutely blown away by this. There were so many amazing entries, and everyone had such fun and diverse ways of meeting the challenge. Thank you so much—I am truly honored!

I tried to give the venue a sort of renaissance faire feel to it. I've always loved the ambiance in places like that, plenty of places to shop and plenty of space to enjoy the outdoors with family and friends. The lot size constraint proved to be my biggest hurdle. I wanted to add so much more (namely topography), but in the end simplicity was the key, and overall I'm very pleased with how it turned out. Many thanks to LilyGirl, Ausette, and samoht04 for coming up with such an enjoyable challenge!"

Chuckles_82's Comment:

"Firstly thank you to Lilygirl, Thomas, and Ausette for such an interesting contest - the budget is indeed becoming very challenging! Secondly, congratulations to Vinyl, and all the other contestants for such talented and amazing builds that all fit perfectly into their surroundings. I had a very clear idea about what I wanted to build for this contest - I had been working on a sci-fi project, and I had the structure clearly in my head before I even started, and a good-to-go colour scheme. My favourite area was the living area. If I could use store content, I would spruce up the garden a bit with a few plants from Lucky Palms. I was very excited to win, especially when there were so many talented builds. "

Vinyl's Comment:

"The entries were all spectacular and so very diverse!  I've got base camps for every world (and then some) thanks to all the creative builders who entered.  Thanks go to Lilygirl, Samoht04, and Ausette for running this contest and improving the future travels of all of my sims!

The lack of gourmet cooking in Champs Les Sims always surprised me.  It was great fun creating a base camp to change that!  Once I had the idea, it was a challenge to fit in the skilling objects while trying to find enough room in the budget for decent furnishings.  It was a lot of fun trying to build in a style that matched the rest of the vacation world and I'm pleased with the end result.  Hopefully other player's sims enjoy visiting it as much as mine do!"

Decima's Comment:

"Thanks everyone for another great contest. This one really interested me as it looked like quite a challenge to find a way to make a starter luxurious. I sat and thought for ages on how to make my entry 'different' before building.

Big thank you to everyone who voted and the mods for continuing to make the contests so fun!"

Building Contest 2013: 11 - Dynasty Designs - June 02, 2013 - June 15, 2013
    Ricalynn!

Congratulations to Ricalynn for winning the building contest! You can download the winning entry here: The Bridge / Dynasty Underground.



Ricalynn's Comment:

"Really? I won?  Guess all that practice in my dynasty files finally paid off!  I kid. Thank you to all those that voted for me.  Everyone who participated did a great job on their homes, congratulations.

I've been doing dynasty builds for as long as I've been a member of the forum, just usually for actual dynasties.  When I saw this contest posted, I knew I had to do a build for it and I knew I'd never hear the end of it if I didn't.  Then I got distracted by actually starting and finishing a life states dynasty within the contest time frame.  A friend who knew what I was doing told me to build a bridge for the actual dynasty.  I fell in love with it and knew I had to build another one for the contest. He agreed and told me to get to it. That and I just knew I had to share my new found passion for troll holes retirement pods. "

Gogowar329's Comment:

"Firstly, I'd like to thanks Ausette, Lilygirl and samoht for another great contest and congratulations to intl_incident and ladybug for creating such great builds. I thought that I'd actually be coming third!

For some reason, the contests that involve different life-states even though I very rarely play Sims that aren't human... I straight away had a vague idea that involved that horrible island out the back. It took me at least double the time to get the island looking right then the rest of the house. I also tried to use a lot of coral and other colours from the sea throughout the house and tried to have something water (e.g. fountain) in every room."

    Arefa!

Congratulations to Arefa! for winning the building contest! You can download the winning entry here: Jenga! .



Arefa's Comment:

"[First off, I'd like to thank the building team for coming up with such interesting contests that really challenge our creativity.  Secondly, excellent job to everyone else who participated in this contest.  We have so many great builders on this forum.

As to where my idea came from... When I first started to research this contest, with each passing picture, I couldn't help but think of the tower game Jenga.  So, I got out my Jenga blocks and started stacking them up until I found something that not only balanced, but also looked good too.  I went through many iterations of the shell before I got something I really liked.  But I have to say, it was quite fun stacking up those blocks!  As for the interior, all that fell into place once the exterior was complete.  It was really neat looking through the buy mode catalog with a different eye, as if I was actually going to recycle the items I placed. 

Thanks to everyone who voted for my Jenga house!  I'm thrilled to see others enjoyed it too!
