If my images seem small it is because i can only run my game on a small resolution and making them bigger isn't possible.

i decided to makeover this house for the singles because i'm sure this house was meant for them.

i decided to give most of the girls double beds because...single girls need loving too right?







Rooms For each girl:
-Leopard print bed-is chloe's because she's a romance sim.
-small single bed room-is kristens because she doesn't plan on staying in strangetown long.
-room with desk and stripey bed-loas because i'd envisage her as wanting a bland workable room being more serious than chloe.
-room with orangish bedding-is erins,if you look close enough you can see a picture of loki and circe on her wall

Default Entry Round 1 - The Beaker Family
I have chosen the Beaker family. I picture them as a very clean and neat family who live in a sterile, modern house. So that is what I build. I added another level for the Beakers which includes their bedroom and private bathroom as well a doorway to the flat roof where they can stargaze. I kept the basement and turned it into Nervous's room and place where Circe can perform her experiments. To access the basement, I made a secret staircase. The door to these stairs and so the basement can only be entered by the Beakers. On the ground floor I turned the small rooms at the front in two lab's; one for Circe and one for Loki. For the kitchen and living room I deleted the walls to integrate both and have a sense of an open space. Finally, I surrounded the house with a chain mail fence to fend off unwanted visitors. The Beakers don't do very ethical experiments after all.



More pictures behind the spoiler.

@emerald1234 - the house is pretty.

Your screenshots are a bit small - can you take bigger ones? (I know you are new to this, and I can see them well enough, but they should really be bigger).

Also - you should get rid of the gridlines.
That can be done by: go into cameramanmode (press tab) - or (easier for me) - press F10 and they should mostly go away.
Don't worry if they are not perfect immediately, by the end of this contest you will have learned how to take nice ones You can edit your screenshots and your entry until the deadline and there is still one day left. Strongs

the reason that the pictures aren't bigger is because my game window is pretty small and its the only window i can play the game on,if i can't make the pictures bigger will i be disqualified?

I doubt that, @Emerald1234 - I can see your pics well enough. I think you should just explain that in your entry so that the other judges will know why they are smaller - that should be fine then

Default Spectre Family 73 Road to Nowhere

Hi, I'm Ophelia Nigmos (or so it says in my underpants; I can't really remember for sure). I just moved into this place with my elderly relative, Olive, and we've done the place up a bit, so I thought I would show you.





I hope you liked my tour! If you live in Strangetown, maybe you could fill me in on some details. Like, where are my parents? And why am I wearing a tie?

I will choose a path that's clear- I will choose free will

Mini Nervous? Hunts for mini Nervous... Where?

Going to check the table and start on judging sheets. It's 8pm here so I won't close the application round until the morning-my morning.

@Emerald1234 I just noticed your pictures, did you use a screenshot program? Fraps, Gadwin there are others. Make sure to use Tab to remove the UI and if you can at the least make your floor plan shots as large as the front shot. Judges have a big task and having as large a picture as possible helps them out. By the way, the one time I made over this house, I made it over for the Singles.

Table updated, we have 13, maybe somebody will make it lucky 14? Also, you will now see all the family names in the table rather than 'entry' this will help us all keep track.

Default Round 1 Entry - The Spectre Household
Strangetown council decided that this little house would be suitable for a two person household, with a little redevelopment. So, the Spectre household was selected as owners.




The Council has decided that the landscaping should stay true to the desert environment, and developed the grounds accordingly. Olive was unimpressed. She seemed to think too little space had been left for her own outdoor interests.

The new open plan upper floor allowed plenty of entertaining space for the outgoing and sociable Sim the council assumed a professional party guest must be! The ground floor was converted into two reasonably sized bedrooms, each with its own bathroom.

Ophelia was rather surprised to get the larger of the bedrooms, but Olive explained that this was so she had space to study. Actually, a secret door in Olive's room leads down to the old basement.

What do you do down there, Olive? Grow mushrooms?

N.B. The book case in Olive's room is a functional 1 tile secret door. The cooker hood is a smoke detector.

Jo, I think you'd better make me a play-along. I'm not going to finish my house by the deadline -- Real Life and that basement have combined to make it impossible. If I'm not mistaken that basement floor is 20 clicks below the main ground floor level, which explains why the ladder I was trying to use isn't long enough to reach! So, to save Ajay having to jump when he reaches the top rung of the ladder, I'm going to have to raise the basement floor level. Which might need CFE, which I've only used once before. Also, as it is just now, I can't place walls on that floor. I'm sure I can work it out eventually. But what I can't do is fix that floor, finish furnishing and decorating the house, arrange the garden, load the no-red-lines mod, start FRAPS, take and post all the pictures and write up my post in the next four and a half hours, while simultaneously attending to all my Real Life tasks!

Anyway you've got 14 contestants now without me -- 15 if HugeLunatic (or anyone else) submits an entry. Which looked very unlikely only a few days ago! I put my name down because I was afraid of the contest not going ahead -- I certainly didn't want to keep anyone else out of it. I think I'll enjoy the contest more as a play-along -- I can be a bit free-er if I don't have to worry about scoring.

And besides, all the entries so far are much better than my house!

Default Round One - Loner


A small, modern home for Ajay, based all around his favorite color, black. It has an office for him to work from (and make money), and a telescope for counting the grains of sand in his backyard (instead of stars in the sky).
