I think the destination theme part won't come into play till round 1. I could be wrong, but that's my understanding.

Justpetro, good idea to use your military hood and make a pretend chopper area.

Don't worry, the theme will come into play in the first round and there after. The application round does have to be plausible though.

Want a specific style of house or community building? Why not take a look at my profile and see what I build and then come ask me to make it!

Thanks, Jo - I want to use the things I build, and this fits with Kipling, I think Had a lot of fun with it too (My daughter kept telling me the shop is far too nice and the seating in the control room looks far too comfy )

Petro, did I accidentally give away your idea before you revealed the surprise? Sorry about that! I was hoping somebody was going to make a heliport.

Funny! I was going to put a helipad on top of my build, but decided against it because the "secret" was out LOL!

I'm almost done - should get to pictures later today

I'd like to join as well, the lot is already in the works. One question though, I do not understand the last part about the holiday venues, which we will use only once but not all of them. Does this apply to the application round?

No, the venues apply to subsequent rounds. And welcome aboard, I look forward to seeing what you build

Oh, I never thought of being the only one making a helipad, Seth! After all, it is the only non-cc flying thing in Sims 2 -- and I put the remote one in the office Cat - I thought you'd shy away from the orange!

LOL! Yeah, did that. And maaan, I'm glad that's done

Quick Q for @Karen I'm going for the no-CC bonus this first round. The Castaway stuff is NOT considered CC, right? ...because, technically, it was made by EAxis - and only made S2-able by someone else.
Or, should I stay away from it this round?



OH! And... I started with a resi lot, and just now put it to community. However, the mailbox and home garbage-can are still there. I can just delete them right? And put down the community garbage and phone booth from the catalog. Right?

I won't get a mention Cat, there is a space in my username

And Castaway stuff and Pet stories etc are considered CC so no if you're going for the CC bonus you can't use them, sorry. With regards to the mailbox and home garbage-can as long as it works without them that'll be ok, especially if you're thinking of uploading.

I changed my entire colour scheme. Mine now has... orange! Perhaps today I might get started on that second story. It was originally blue and yellow but Tiff's is so I thought I would change.

Are there any requirements for the 'shop'? I have a newsstand in the one I am building which just contains a magazine rack and a register would that count or does it have to be more involved?

Oh, and by 'public' toilets does that mean more than one toilet is required per gendered bathroom? I have been places with public bathrooms but it's one room and one toilet and we had to wait in line. Right now I technically have 'public toilets' because I have one for a mens bathroom and one for a woman's but I wanted to know if that is allowed according to the requirement of 'public toilets'.

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

Hello, Charmful Those will fit the basic requirements in my opinion. The number of toilets and the size of the shop will be up to you, those are not specified in the requirements.

Default Bleake Islands Landing Stage
After working for more than a year on this bleake and forbidding island far to the north her boss promised her beach and palm trees. Finally a well-deserved vacation! Only a few weeks left until she will be on her way, away from the Bleake Islands...

The only way to get off this Island is per post boat which usually comes two times a week (if the weather allows). Or by an emergency helicopter ride, but that would not be a good start for a vacation. Usually it is no problem to get a seat on the post boat. Except for the people who work here or their families visiting noone in their right mind would ever want to come here.

Yes, still working on mine. At least I'm on the first floor now (which is the floor up) That is going so much quicker then the ground floor, might even get it finished today since it's Mother's day over here. Although so far I have just had a note since my dh is at the gym, I have a suspicious sore throat and 'somebody' (Translates to mum) had to clean up the cockroach on it's back in the middle of the hallway since the puppy decided it was a play toy...
