Thank you all for confirming. I did use the hood mouse-over version to set down my lot but that was yesterday and today when I was looking at the info, that's where I got confused by the number difference/change. BUT KNOW I KNOW! THANKS!!

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

Yes it is well clarified

Meantime I went ahead and started the Countdown Timer, set to UTC and set for a few hours ahead so it will match up as if we started early in my morning, so I can get some sleep It is at the bottom of the post.

Good night and have fun everybody!

gdayars, usually play alongs aren't scored, was that just a copy/paste oversight when you added the second table, or is that a feature of this contest? I'd honestly rather not be scored, judging is such time consuming work and I don't want to make more work for them when I'm not a fully committed contestant.

Oh sorry @Phaenoh there won't be scores in the play alongs that is just a place to put smiley faces I have not had a chance to clean it up as there will be no totals or actual points I just copied and pasted over til I had time.

I think the lot size in the bin is correct - it is when you use the Lot adjuster to change the size that it may not look right (guess who lost points due to that in a previous contest ).

The Fermented Fruit Juice bar will open shortly. You drank so much last time that I need to restock first. Welcome to the new contestants; I trust that you will all have a lot of fun (and learn a lot as well)

I am totally cutthroat competitive - I'm going to have to rein myself in.

OK now we're started, questions:

Can we use hood deco as part of the presentation? I mean things like the skydomes and Voeille's water mod. And trees obviously and anything else (I have an extensive collection)

For the shots, can sims be present in the pictures? I'm thinking of pictures taken on a test lot

Is use of the magic wand permissible or does price have to be straight out of the catalogue? This is problematic since it can make quite a difference but the other thing is I've altered so much of my CC (because it was ridiculously priced) including most wallpapers I download - in my case, if they come at $1, I alter them upwards.

Can I use a beach lot for tropical and what size would I use?

No magic wand. I mean the contest at it's heart is already pretty cheat.Isnt that a bit over the top? It isn't decor. It doesn't make things prettier. It is just cheaty.

CC is allowed. That means sky domes. They are a form of decor. While in practice, I realize this won't be totally true, in theory the build itself should be the only consideration. I realize tho that a tropical location would probably be heightened by the proper looking sky. As far as water mods, most will probably already have those, and again CC is allowed. Basically same thing as sky domes. I will encourage judges to pretend those things aren't present.

"Watches stampede to download said items"

Just realized the question about tropical lots... There will be one time you can use a beach lot, the last one. I had to keep it base game friendly and base game doesn't have beach lots. The last one is lot size free. The rest have specific sizes.

Edited to add, it isn't beach lots that are bad, I just needed sizes that were possible for base game people. 2x3 and 3x2 are same size turned differently so I allowed either one. The custom beach lots down below have sizes that fit in, and are allowable.

Oh - shame about the beach lot. Not sure I want to change what I was planning. I'll give it some thought and let you know.

Oh OK - you seemed to be saying only the last round could use a beach lot but what you meant was that the in-game versions are too big. I'll have a look at those.

Charmful man, damn. Now I lost my courage if I even had one. I realize I need to go with another type of eating place than the one I wanted to do cause all the old type furniture is expensive as hell, So I won't be able to do a Kro (It's basically a pub but bigger and it fills a whole house instead of a corner...)
IDK what to even do since I have to replan the whole thing and do something else -n-/ But hey, I have what? a week or two right?

I can still add people to the play along but the main contest is now filled

Be warned. Play alongs get smiley faces, that is why I left them a score, but no total. I removed the total column after @Phaenoh reminded me I had left it in, in my haste to add a play along table.

There is a countdown timer at the bottom of the first post. It is a link that you can click to bring up how long we have til the judges take over

@franfeliano I am fixing to add you to the playalong. @RickandMorty if you want to participate, the time to join is now, but it can only be as a play along. Contests are a first come, first serve business and you have to hop on quick these days! I will go ahead and add you to it, but if you don't want to be on it, just let me know.

Ahh, sorry I kind of jumped in all gung-ho but please do not get discouraged! And while I'm a stickler on myself for presentation, the fact is, my 'technical building' is pretty mediocre. I just make up for it with landscaping and interior decorating. I hope you can find a place to build, and maybe if the furniture is too expensive, you could search for any alternates that were cheaper and invoked the same kind of feel? And if not, you do have like 2 weeks to be inspired and build another kind of place

Uh oh! My social bar is low - that's why I posted today.

@Charmful don't worry, I think I have something but it feels so mediocre anyway even though I did it cheaper than last. I of cause forgot to open fraps ._______.
