I'm so in for TS3! I'm excited for this! Though I'm not sure how well I'll do considering I'm not sure if my husband will be home to occupy our son, or if I get to multitask. xD Either way, I am definitely taking part!

A speed build for me would take, like, a week. :p

But instead of another movie night, we figured we'd try something new, different, and Sims-related! So, introducing the first ever MTS Speed-Building Challenge! Come join us! Build things! But, like, quickly!

What's all this then?
This is a timed foundations challenge which will be run in our live chat Discord server. At the agreed upon time, we all log-in and start building! Post screencaps as you go, updating everyone on your progress. Or just weep. At the end of the time limit, we all post pics of our finished (or unfinished) houses, and see all of the awesome creativity everyone has come up with!

What is a foundations challenge?
A foundations challenge is a lot building challenge. Before the event begins, you will download a lot file which will contain a building foundation, but nothing more. You then build a lot on that "footprint".

When and where

Where
The MTS Discord server! Specifically in the "mts-events" channel.

When
Sunday, November 11th! We have two sessions available, one roughly corresponding to early evening for Western Europe, the other early evening for Eastern North America. You can, of course, participate in whichever works for you, regardless of geography. To see the options click here, the poll should adjust to display in your time zone. At this stage we are limiting each session to 20 participants, to keep chat from turning into too much of a zoo. Depending on interest we may reassess the number of sessions and/or number of participants per session.

Rules
What is the time limit?
90 minutes. This time will not include loading your game/installing the lot, both of which should be done in advance of the start.

Is this judged? Are there winners?
No and no. This is for fun only. It isn't a competition, it won't be judged, and we're all going to be winners because we'll be having fun!

For further rules/FAQs, see the next post in this thread.

Sounds great! How do I sign up?
Three easy steps!
  • Register on our Doodle poll, selecting the time slot that works best for you. Please note that you must register using your MTS username. Otherwise we have no way of knowing who you are.
  • Post a comment in this thread confirming your registration and stating which game (TS2/3/4) you intend to build for.
  • Create a Discord account (if you don't already have one) and join our Discord server. Once in our server, head to the "mts-events" channel, ping me using @PharaohHound and say your MTS username (if different from your Discord name) and which session (first or second) you have signed up for. I will add you to a list of users who will be participating.

That's it!

Also please note that this is a commitment. Please only register if you are confident you will be able to participate at the time you have registered for. If you're not 100% sure you want to join, or you aren't 100% certain what your schedule will be like, please wait until you have those things figured out.



@PharaohHound, thanks for organizing this challenge.
It is a great opportunity to have fun in a group and share our construction techniques.
Those of us who participate using Sims 3, can we use construction tricks like "constrainfloorelevation false" and objects from the "buydebug" catalog?
Do we have permission to use Premium items from the store?
Count on me at 80%, depending on whether my work allows me to participate on the indicated day.
I would like to propose something to those who participate in the challenge. It is not mandatory, but I think it would be good if, days after the challenge, the participants published their constructions in MTS to share them with the community. It would be good if the rest of us could play with the houses of our adventure companions.
I promise to download all batches of Sims 3 that participate in this challenge and are shared by their authors in MTS. I will also comment and share pictures of my characters enjoying them.

Never having done a speed build of any kind, this should be fun and interesting. I'll be doing the evening challenge with TS3. I uninstalled all my CC a couple of weeks ago, so this should be really interesting... Nevertheless, I can't wait to see what everyone else makes!

It will be very fun, it is also my first time in a challenge.
There are great things that can be built with just the TS3 base game. There are several days until the challenge begins and I have already thought about the theme of my house.

One more question:
In Doodle there are two schedules for Sunday, November 11; 12:00 / 13:30 and 19:00 / 20:30
Are schedules from North America (east, center or west) and Europe or the system translates the schedules to my region in particular?

@Drex Ler

1. As mentioned in my post, yes, CFE is allowed. Buydebug should be fine too.
2. Store content is allowed
3. Thanks for the info on your Discord account. However, do make sure to actually drop into our channel and confirm your registration.
4. The Doodle poll should adjust to your time zone

I apologize if this seems off, but I'm pretty good at building lots, but in my own way and method, and even though I'm not entering in this Speed-Building Challenge, I'd like to know how to successfully upload my own creations, as that's all I'm good at doing!?
Please don't report me or anything, I just want to know how to successfully upload Sims 2 Lots?


Sincerely,

Hi @Cloud_Strife ! Have a look at our Creator Guidelines for lots to see the requirements. You can find them in the Create menu of the site (under "creator guidelines"). Once you've read the requirements thoroughly and understand the guidelines, then you upload your item using the "upload items" button, also under the Create menu.

This looks like so much fun! I'm afraid I won't be able to join on those dates, though. Any chance that the footprint will be available later for those who missed it, so we can do the challenge on our own?

I've signed up for the first session and i'll be building using TS3. I'm looking forward to it as i've never done anything like thise before.

I too, like some others have said, am committed to taking part, however on the day my health may present difficulties in doing so. Fingers crossed we'll all be able to participate though

@MariTom - the download for the foundations should be available in the mts-events Discord channel as a pinned post after the event is over.

And yay, more sign-ups! Can't wait to see what everyone builds!

I wanted so much to take part in this ... kind of hinted at a similar challenge ... but I was out of town.

EDIT ... Oops! TODAY is November 11th. I might just wind up watching, though. I'm a little beat.

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

RIP Sunni ... truly a ray of light.
