Aww shame, I was wondering if you might be along, I think you would like this.

D'aaw... I'm flattered!

(And kind of amused that you think I can make lots of the standard I usually upload with the time constraints of a contest! My last upload is something I'd had in the pipeline for about 18 months!)

I would be hugely interested to see what you would come up with. These lots are not going to be large or fancy. Notice I did steal your small dresser becomes cardboard box idea lol.

Okay here goes nothing...I'm jumping into this contest. I almost changed my mind but a Sim I've been playing recently has convinced me this is something I needed to do.

That is the mission statement of the Winters Building Group and the promise Henry Winters made to his family after surviving a traumatic camping trip. As representative of the company I submit our humble office for application. Thank you.

Welcome to the party Lehcar99!

For the sake of completeness I give below a little picture of my lot as it appears in my full game, after correcting the price of the two Moneywell computers by replacing the depreciated ones with new ones. As you can see it's still §119 less than the price shown in my entry post, but for reasons explained there, I think the higher price (in my AGS base game) is the correct one.

Thank you. I wasn't happy with the building at first, and then the idea just hit me two days ago and I rebuilt. I'm glad you like it.

The next round will be released a day or less after all the scoring has been tallied for the Application Round. When the first Town Contract is released, the build time will be a maximum of 10 days. I will not provide any hints or ideas of what will be involved.

Karen's entry is second to last ["Integrity Building Company"]. Click the green arrow in the 3rd post (2nd reply) of this thread next to that company logo.

10 days is plenty of time, but why not post the round now d, so we can all get started while judging is happening, then theres more of a 'flow' happening instead of alot of stopping and starting and it wouldnt drag out as long

Rome wasn't built in a day

May I just make a little plea for JustJones, that she doesn't get disqualified for including Sims in her pictures, as I don't think it was quite clear at the time she submitted her entry. At the time I thought the only reason for excluding Sims was so that they didn't depreciate the lot value. d_dgjdhh, might you just ask the judges to ignore her Sims? I can't speak for the other contestants, but I think it would be a shame for one of our little group to have to drop out for what I'm sure was only a misunderstanding. I even toyed with the idea of adding a picture with Sims myself, but I thought they would also have to be CC-free, and while Andrew has Maxis clothes in his wardrobe he could wear, I'm afraid that Julian, placid and mild-mannered though he usually is, would throw the mother and father of all teenage tantrums, if I tried to cut off his CC Hanui hair!

I wonder what other contestants think.

As for the next round, I'm looking forward to it with a bit of excitement and not a little trepidation. Wondering just what I've let myself in for.

There's a reason for waiting for the next round. It may not be immediate, but it may be important.

I understand the concern, and I would also agree that it wasn't part of the rules to to not include Sims in the pictures at first. I've discussed with the Directors what to do in this case. We'll see how this develops.

I would be fine if there weren't any penalties given at all for the application round considering we were hammering out the finer points of the rules while the round was in progress. The starting budgets are going to come as a shock or seem like a punishment already I think.

I was confused over this entry round. I didn't realize the application round was being judged, I thought it was for getting a spot in the contest. I would have spent a whole lot more time and done a proper building.
