I hope her surgery went well! Don't worry about building when you got more important real life things. There will be more contests in the future, and absolutely no one is gonna knock ya for not completing a build.

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

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.. :lovestruc

Renee made it through the first surgery (front and back pelvic bones on the right side)..it looks like her tail bone is broke as well..not sure if they are going to fix that one before she leaves the hospital..or later down the road..

She can move both legs now but can't stand or walk yet..her head is killing her right now as well..I hope there is nothing they missed when they did the cat scan..if that isn't gone by the weekend I hope they do another cat scan to see if there is any swelling..I will talk to her tomorrow about that..

I haven't heard if they are going to do anything with that vertebrata or not..

All I have done today is sleep..and still soooo tired..all I want to do is be up there even if it's for a few hours..

I will let you all know what's happening..thank you all again for your thoughts and prayers :lovestruc

Glad it's going well so far, broomhilda. Will keep praying for all of you <3

I'm not going to be able to finish this lot. I'm just so behind, and still have sooooo much to do. Every time I even think about working on it, let alone actually load it up, my anxiety starts inching up. And my sanity is just not worth completing the lot. I hate to not finish a contest, but I hate my anxiety even more. So while I will quite possibly finish it at some point, just for completion sake, it won't be in time for this contest.

I vote that you wait until you have them all

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!

OK while we're waiting for the finish, I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed this contest. As a sims builder, I'm generally not too interested in house builds. That's no criticism of anyone, I know a lot of people like that, it's just that I'm not too interested myself and so had never wanted to take part in a contest before. What I liked about this contest and is the reason I wanted to take part is that it was, for me anyway, about creating places, situations, scenes or whatever you want to call it. I always build in that kind of way - what might happen in this sort of place? What would it be like to go here? So for my builds - my beach front restaurant, the Chinese concert hall, the alpine lodge and, finally, SimPetra, I had a lot of fun imagining what this place might be like and trying to create a version of it in game - and it's always a version because nothing comes out quite as you might expect it. It was not about build techniques or CC or sims particularly, for me anyway, it was about making something - a place - with the game as a tool. Build techniques were what they needed to be to make what I wanted so the restaurant has a very simple building - the kitchen with only 2 walls - whereas SimPetra was hard. I enjoyed that variety and challenge very much. So thanks Gayars for a great contest.

This week has been very very rough, my rheumatoid arthritis has done it's best to make most parts of my body break into many little pieces, and because of this I have yet to start judging. The little time I've been able to sit at computer I wanted to do things that were fun and light and would keep me going. And I don't think any of you really want me to judge your lots when all I want to do is snap something in two. The flair up appears to be dying down now so I will do my best to get started when I wake up, so hopefully won't be late. But if I need an extra day I hope you'll all understand. I know you are probably anxious to get your scores and find out who won and how you ranked, and if I thought it was better to rush it I would. But you guys put so much effort into these builds I think you deserve to have them looked at properly, especially in this last and deciding round.

One advantage to being in these contests is seeing how players approach certain challenges in building .. little hacks and shortcuts to getting a certain effect. Yes, you can see them without participating, but I think you might be more aware of them while you're playing the rounds. There have been a few times when I looked at a build in this and the last contest and thought, "Gee ... why didn't I think of that?" These contests are certainly educational!

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

RIP Sunni ... truly a ray of light.

RA gods are on my side, didn't manage much sleep but not in eye-watering amounts of pain today so judging here we go! Hot damn you guys did great this round. Making my job real difficult!

About scores this round, I'd just like to "prepare" you all that criteria this round are different. Not by my design, we have been given different instructions this round for some rubrics, which means these scores will not be comparable to previous rounds. So please don't compare numbers too much, focus on the comments

@maxon I can't seem to find a picture showing the front of the treasury, and if I am interpreting things correctly that is the main building copying the built-into-mountain style of the Petra, so I would be very grateful if you could add one I want to see it! - Never mind, gdayars pointed out they are under spoilers. As I said in previous round I use attachments when judging because it's tons easier, but never mind they are in there.
Edit: Found another thing I need to ask about. In the spa-building, in the center by the round stairs up to massage tables, there are what looks to me like two bathtubs. Is that what they are? If so, have you done any privacy-fixing things to them to make sure they don't try to shoo people out the building to take a bath?

Just to clarify on the score thing the main thing in this round was theme and uniqueness. So you get automatic 5's on budget for instance. But those two things count more this round. It needed to scream theme.

To reiterate: Unique, activities style lot unique to that culture/geographical location. Can be any size, any budget, any type, as long as it matches the theme you have left to use, and is unique to that location.

Theme and unique being the key words

Uh - oh just seen this.

I didn't include the facades in the uploaded pics because I thought they were a bit of a cheaty extra shot type thing - I said so in the post. But if you want to see them, I can do that. (edit: uploaded now).

The bath tubs have been modded to be non-privacy. They are part of a larger project of mine to turn them into mud baths. I have not finished it, partly because I've been looking for a reason to use that set for a very long time. I stopped on trying to get a mud overlay on the sims afterwards. They increase fun and comfort but tank hygiene. Heh. Anyway, it's a baths not a bathroom.
