Charmful is correct, the cutouts are part of the torrox set.

And the photos, I can't figure out what is going on with them. Flickr seems to be rejecting those photos specifically. I'm going to fiddle with it some more and see if I can find the logic to it. In the mean time you can click on the photos and it will link you to the photos on flickr, which do show up.. *sigh*

And thank you Charmful for the compliments!

Edit: Got the photos fixed. Thanks yavannatw for the heads up

Thanks for the praise @kanzen and @Charmful!

And @Magnolia, I don't know what you're talking about; I think your lot looks beautiful and charming! It's simplicity is what makes it great and I could see it fitting in right at home in lots of neighborhoods and working for a few different set ups--from starter families to retirement homes. I absolutely loved your staging and decorating--like how you put the shelf on top of the BILLY but also put the cd shelves next to it-- !

Awww, thank you so much! That's very sweet of you to say

It's nowhere near your entry though! That lot is absolutely masterful! I could never pull that off! Seriously brilliant work!

@Magnolia your lot is wonderfully done as well! It's a simple and non-intrusive structure that could appeal to many players to download for their game. The decorating is superb and the common space courtyard is a wonderful idea to give life into a place!

I'm really sorry everyone. Not doing great on the hosting thing so far. Contest curse kinda struck again, life has turned out to be a lot busier than I anticipated. Have had to make a rushed decision to move so currently apartment hunting, while also selling my apartment, which is complicated further by the fact I currently live with my parents which is a 2 hour drive from where my apartment is and where I normally live so a whole lot of driving back and forth at the moment. Thought I'd have time after house guests left, but had forgotten I needed to be at my apartment to let photographer in. Whenever I sit down at my computer the backlog of things to deal with is so long I'm barely caught up with things from vacation several weeks ago. Doing my best but real life things have to come first so contest has had to wait :/ I am hoping I'll have an easier time keeping up with contest now I am up to par with posts, and no longer have several pages worth of stuff to go over.

-------- On to the contest stuff!

About pool table discussions, I too find they need 2 tiles around them to work well. If you don't have 2 tiles and two Sims are playing there will be a lot of stomping and finicking with where to stand when waiting to play your turn. They can work with 1 tile but it's much more annoying, and that's what the playability category is meant to look at.

About the confusion with Magnolias score, it was 78.5 when I first posted but had missed a score fix by one of the judges so went back and fixed it shortly after posting. Guess you were just too fast for me Charmful :P

Charmful: Regarding the host bonus, there is no picture in your attached photos that shows the entire lot at ground level. Ground level means ground level, if you have a foundation then it should be on the foundation level. It also has to include the entire lot, no parts cut off. Your picture of the first floor is cut off at the top and the bottom, so even if we ignore the ground level aspect it's not showing the entire lot. As for back picture, you are cutting off the grass. A back picture should show the entire back, and that includes whatever ground is behind the building. Even if yours isn't cutting anything off, it feels like it is because there's no grass and Maxis buildings can't be right at the edge

Karen: Your playability score and total has been raised as per Ellu's request. I do agree with Ellu that a blocked mailbox is a pretty big playability problem in an apartment, as it's something you are likely to not notice until Sims have been living there for a week and after that long having to move families out to fix it would be kind of annoying. So take note people, do not block your mailboxes on the rent-paying side

@ekrubynaffit glad you decided to play-along!

Treehawk: Yes, store items count as CC. There's also a chair that appears to be CC, visible in Round1Unit5-5 screenshot.

Yvelotic: I am so sorry to hear you've been in hospital. I hope it's nothing too serious, and that you are doing okay. Definitely more important than a contest, even if contest is something you also enjoy

Peni: I would say no on the birds. Technically only a visual thing but it's adding something that's not there normally, as opposed to skyboxes/water mods that only change the appearance of something that exists. Since I was not here to answer on time I will ask judges to let it pass this time if you kept them, but in remaining rounds no hood deco. (if skyboxes are hood deco then they are exception, never used one so no clue)

I think that's all the things I needed to respond to, I hope so at least. A few things were already answered so I skipped those, but if anyone feels something is missing please let me know. Too wiped tonight to add round 2 entries to the table, only going to end up screwing up the table or something so it's better I do it when I wake up. Sorry judges, I hope it's not too much of an inconvenience.

If you have questions on how to use SimPE or WW, you're welcome to PM me.

No custom hood deco? Oh, dear...You can clearly see some in the background of the roof picture. I'll have to pull all that.

I decided to do the edit to be on the safe side; no reason I should get away with things just because life got on your tail, and it wasn't that much work even with the headache.But by the time I'd done that I'd had to restore my original cameras and couldn't take proper front and back pictures, so I kept the front pic with the birds and took care to point it out. It won't arise again (I don't think) because I didn't use the birds on the next two apartments. And I should now have plenty of time to sort out the dang cameras and find a combination that does what I need it to do without crashing the game or otherwise annoying the heck out of me.

There's something very pointed about you having to go apartment-hunting in the middle of hosting an apartment contest.

Ugly is in the heart of the beholder.

@kanzen - I think that was answered in post #175 - you can use stuff that is extracted from the game to decorate like career and aspiration rewards, I *think* craftable items are included in that.

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

Yeah that chair is a store item as well, unfortunately. There's no store stuff this time though! Thanks for the official ruling.

Also, everyone's builds look incredible! I can't believe how everyone came up with something different from each other and they're all so good! I definitely feel a little upstaged, haha.
