Haha, this seems like a reaaaaally good contest, i love the idea!
I really want to join this. If I get some time i'll deffiantly make a APP.
Hmmm I thinking romance sim :P
Strach that last bit; I just made an adorable(i think) geeky sim in BS. Hopefully i'll get enough time to get in-game before the deadline

wgroome & Charley: Already In the process :D

This seems like a really good contest. I love the idea and how it involves *actual* gameplay. But, urgh, I always hate myself for entering contests because I never seem able to see them all the way through.
Either way, I'll be wtaching this, wgroome.
Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos.

Depends on your ability not to go insane? I just had four going at once -- three are finished the last few days.
I have one question, wgroome, do we make a new sim for this contest or use one hanging out in the neighborhood already? I have plenty that have gotten nowhere in life if we can use them. It would be so much fun for one of them to do what he/she wants instead of me forcing them to do what I want just to get a pic.
1st Place : Superb Sibling, Hearts Consume the Stars Contests
2nd place : Daddy N Me Cycle 2 Alien Edition, Sims Real Estate Contests
3rd Place : World Zombie Model Agency Contest
4th Placce : Aspiration N Me, Maxis Makeover Home Edition, My Girl, Stages of Life, SRE Cycle 2 Contests

Petchy: Wow! You're entry is done already!? That was fast. It's nice to see a Grilled Cheese Sim! Can't wait to see everybody else's entries!
You can of course use existing Sims. As long as you think you can make all your rounds interesting with them, there's no reason why not!
|23rd Feb 2009, 07:20 PM||#12|
Oh what the hell, I haven't joined a contest in forever. So, I have my game firing up as we speak. I'll think of something interesting, hopefully.

Okay! You're signed up!
PS. Do you like the banners I've made? There are four more rounds and four more aspiration failures I haven't shown... :nyah:
|23rd Feb 2009, 09:39 PM||#16|
I like the banners! Very nice!
I have my app all ready just got to write a story!
|23rd Feb 2009, 09:42 PM||#17|
Yay! A third entry (I know someone else is currently writing theirs too!)

Name: Brian Hosmer
My name is Brian Hosmer and I am a romance sim. I spend most of my days either walking through the mall trying to catch them ladies or talkin to them via cell phone or computer. Everyone says that I spend way too much time chasing the ladies but it's what my heart desires (me too). How can I tell my heart that it's not right, ha ha.
I think I got all my tips and tricks from my father. He was the best ever. I feel like I have to do this, not only for him, but for me. I think this is what I was meant to do, love the ladies. I seem to be on a good start. It's nice to go out and meet the ladies. Who knew there were so many beautiful women out there.
This was fun. If I am missing anything please let me know.

Thanks for joining Cavilez! Nice entry.... now we've got a Knowledge Sim!
(I'm secretly hoping we at least get one of every type of Sim!)
|23rd Feb 2009, 09:54 PM||#20|
This seems like fun, but I'm afraid of school and RL getting in the way...it ALWAYS happens...
Would you be comfortable with a potential drop out joining?
|23rd Feb 2009, 09:57 PM||#21|
It's up to you. If you honestly think there is no way you could get all the rounds in on time don't waste your time making just a few rounds and then dropping out!
But I'd love to have as many people joining in as possible!

Name: Herbie Fitzpatrick
UhmmÖWell, h-hi. My name is Herbie, and no Iím not a Ďlove bugí. I suppose I should start by telling abit about myself? Well, I have an undying love for science and have done for as long as I can remember, I guess Iím intelligent, I was only one years old when I began the power of speech. But I'm also incredibly shy.
When I was young I didnít go outside and play with other children, I preferred to stay inside and enjoy my childhood with my ant farm, I found that I consoled in my ants much better rather than other boys my age.
My greatest dream is to explore the skies above, I have a love for my telescope and most nights Iím out their gazing at the star, wondering if were really alone?
Hope everything is ok! Sorry about another knowlegde sim I was going to do romance but when I created him he just looked so geeky - and i had already taken my picture before I saw cavilez's APP, Sorry!!
|23rd Feb 2009, 10:12 PM||#23|
Ha ha we all used males. That's the first time I have used a male, that I liked, in a contest.
Great entries you two.
Edit: It's ok Charley, he is so adorable. Mine isn't geeky at all, I forgot his glasses, lol. I love knowledge sims though. That's why I chose mine.
|23rd Feb 2009, 10:23 PM||#24|
Cavilez: Maybe you could add glasses later... maybe he was trying out contacts! :D
Charley: A lovely entry... as expected. I love the name Herbie (although I'm slightly disappointed he's not a lovebug.) It's fine he's a Knowledge Sim, by the way. To be honest I wasn't expecting any "Knowledgeys"!
|23rd Feb 2009, 10:27 PM||#25|
Thanks Cavilez, I actually didn't put glasses on him in BS then I changed my mind later on in CAS :P
wgroome: Lols, the lovebug is sort of a pun from the Herbie movies. He just didn't suit as a romance sim :P
Btw, Petch & Cavilez, I like your entries!
