Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

So, #create is channel on MTS2 chat that deals with a
whole bunch of TS2 related stuff, like meshing issues, lot
feedback, poni play pen time, sim creations, self simming,
game play stories, gossip, toasters on wheels, Redneck
mansions, you know, awesome stuff like that. Well, one
day, a fairly boring day I assume, a lady named Phaenoh
pulled out a new game for creators to play. This was the
"Foundation Challenge". Basically, each person built a
foundation, and then passed it out to the other participants.
Once the lot was in game, each person had to build a
minimum 2 story house on the foundation, without editing
the original in any way. Although mine are quite a bit later
then the other participants', they have finally arrived, and
are here for you to observe whatever
downloaders do.

Phaenoh's Foundation - "The Delectable" - $76, 068

Phae's lot, to me, resembles some sort of eclectic barn
kind of house. So, I named it "The Delectable" to fit
with the whole farm = produce concept. It has...

2 Bedroom
2 Bathroom
Produce Garden (More bars, in more places...even the sims!)

Leesester's Foundation - "The Sea Breeze" - $84, 180

I -adore- this lot. Blue, although not my favorite color,
makes the lot seem calm and at ease, just like how
the beach makes you feel...unless your afraid of wate
r...or sand...if so, I suggest you just DL this lot and
stay away from beaches to avoid panic attacks.
This lot has...

2 Bedroom
1 Bathroom
Multiple Porches

Hysterical Paroxysm's Foundation - "The Overgrown" - $103, 616

"So, this forgotten beauty has all you can ask for and more!
It has two bedrooms and bathrooms, PLUS room for more, and
a lovely place for an office! There also appears to be an extra
room to the right of the house...but we can't get into that
room. Whoever was here last, didn't want us getting into
there, that's f..."

The Realtor was interrupted.
"Who -did- live here before"
The Realtor continued - "f-for sure! Now if you notice there
is a pool as well," She turned to face the boy "perfect for
parties young man!"

His eyes glued to the house, like there was something
wrong, he heard all of the kids talking about the house
in school, about the tragedy that happened. And how
Lady Greyskill turned to black magic to try and locate
her missing child. Some say the house is still haunted
with her ever searching soul. -I- say, put in some elbow
grease and you have a freaking awesome house!

(NOTE - house not haunted )

Deluxe Design's Lot - "The Grand" - $81, 972

Fittingly named, the grand is a large castle, captured in
a "wintry" scene. I took DD's lot in a TOTALLY different
direction than the others, and I am SUPER pleased with
the outcome. It's corridors contain...

2 Bedrooms
2 Bathrooms

Good job on the houses Yours and the others' lots from this challenge have been very tempting to get. Trying to keep my DLing to a minimum though right now.

Wow! You truly know how to swing that brush whichever way the wind blows. Even with a given set of rules, constrained to a set foundation you deliver. I personally fancy "The Sea Breeze" based on its curb appeal; The house has this prominent greenhouse that stole 1 out of 5 of my senses for 30 long minutes (that's sim minutes on normal speed, and not the minutes we battle in real life.) In other words the homes married well to there corresponding foundations. +1Thanks.

All these lots rock too hard to choose a fav, they are all very well built :D

That's what my broken heart looks like....
I wish Mansion and Garden wasn't necessary for these lots.....they're all so beautiful, but my computer can't handle any more EPs.....*sigh*
