You can all use as much cc as you like too, no bonus for cc free. if you feel like "Yikes my download folder is overflowing!" I suggest renaming your sims 2 folder and making yourself a fresh one where you can pile as much cc for this contest as you want to.

I knew I shouldn't have starting taking pics, but often it's not until you do that you spot mistakes or something that needs changing. Back to the cc search and re-taking pics.

it's a hassle but I find that only when you start taking pics, "thinking OH im done everything's alright", will you spot your mistakes, things you lack, and things you could do better. you're not alone =)))

About as cheaty as I been getting with this lot is using some 0 and 1 Simoleon decorating items (the car statues and wall writing, for instance). I kind of like the challenge of trying to keep in range, and it's not like I have any chance of winning this, anyway!

(Looked cautiously at the playalong comments. Expected a book. Breathed sigh of relief.)

I found two things in my lot that didn't make me too happy, and yes, plant-plopping was one of them. In this case, I MIGHT have gotten away with the orderly approach since shopping mall plantings can have a sameness to them, but in the trendier and in many other strip malls, you will see things like vertical gardens and mixed planting arrangements, so that has been changing for a while. Gosh, I stink at gardening. I think someone here was going to start a landscaping contest. If I entered, it would probably be for comic relief.

My plant-arranging isn't as good with this lot as well, but at least I tried to use snapobjectstogrid and move_on to make the plants a little closer. I ran out of funding, though. I forgot in this game, 2000 Simoleons is NOT enough for anything but minimal landscaping. Sigh. I tried.

Another thing that bothered me on that previous lot was that the I thought the floor was a little dark. I was initially trying to strictly rein in the CC (and failed at it), and no other floor seemed to match what I was trying to do. When I put the lot in my new game (plays OK), I found a wood floor that picked up on the reddish-black tones (the red and black and darker accents were deliberate ... reminds me of older Asian restaurants in my youth), but was a shade or two lighter. I wished I thought of it earlier. OnayaW isn't the only one who looked at the lot after submission and thought, "Oh ... "

I'm still trying to restrain myself with CC on this lot, but not as much. I give up.

Thank you for the advice. Maybe for the beach and mountain lots, I'll remember to budget more for plants!

Thanks to ALL free-site creators, admins and mods.

RIP Sunni ... truly a ray of light.

It was Voeille who was talking about a landscaping contest, if I remember correctly. Landscaping is probably one of my stronger points - especially compared to my building ones -, but I can always do with some improvement

I find this round hard. A bar sounded such a great idea. No I am not so sure anymore I do want it to be a bit of a surprise, so some of the normal bar things simply do not work Not sure I am going to get to 50 000 here, cc or not! And the landscaping is a bit .... harder than I anticipated when I chose the theme.

So I am off to the fermented fruit juice bar for inspiration

@broomhilda61 if you need to reset the resolution in game (re. Jo's comments), we can probably help you with that.

I saw it, Jo, no worries! Joy Luck Club would've been slightly less bare with a higher budget - some of that Asian collection stuff is expensive! And I was mostly going with restrained Japanese simplicity rather than Chinese opulence (though there's no way to separate out all the real world cultures that they dumped into Takemizu).

I put down a lot and piled ice rink stuff onto it last night, but so far I'm not feeling it. The whole random heap only came to $25K, and it'd be a primarily outdoor venue, so likely to look even barer than the restaurant. Maybe I should do something else. I'd kind of like to save the stock show exhibit hall for the final phase, though, and ice skating is the big obvious omission from the mountain hood...

My husband has been gone for a few days, to his mother's funeral, so I've been a bit unsettled anyway. No doubt I'll be more focused once I pick him up this afternoon. I got my screenshot program working probably, anyhow! It's called Greenshot, in case Broomhilda can't get Fraps working. I didn't find it all that intuitive but now that I've figured out how to set everything up how I want it, it's painless, and it saves in .jpg so I can skip a step in processing the photos.
