Welcome!


The Build-n-Share challenges will be posted on Wednesdays and run for two weeks. Results will be posted one week after all entries have been submitted. If you are interested in previous challenges, the archive thread can be found here.

----------------------------------------------------------

For those new to the challenge, you may want to read the information in the second post to see more information about Build-n-Share.

It's a couple of days early, and don't worry, challenge 242-243 hasn't closed yet, but I am unsure of my whereabouts at closing time, so I thought you could all get a head start!

Build-N-Share Challenge (244-245)


A Distinctly Asian Theme...

You recline in your office chair, staring at the cool bag of goodies your latest clients have sent over as a thank you for all your hard work on their home and business. “Hmm, I'm going to have to start running again soon, if Gin, Perspehone and Purrsia stay in town for any length of time!” You think to yourself as your hand reaches in for a oh so delicious melt in the mouth chocolate brownie, and the best part is, you know exactly where all the ingredients originated from!

As you finish your mouthful, Rose buzzes through.

“Your 10 O'Clock, Mr Ryan is here.”

“Show him through Rose.” You say staring longingly at the cool bag.

Although, when Mr Ryan is shown through the door with a basket under his arms, you nearly swoon and make that mental note about exercise even firmer!

“Ah now, thank you for taking the time to see me.” He has a melodious accent that you know is a fresh off of a plane from Ireland.

“Mr Ryan, it's a pleasure to meet you in person! We have been communicating for too long via other forms of communication.”

“Indeed! You won't hear any argument from me.” He says as he gives you that look that means he is appraising your assets...

His steel grey eyes are set into an almost angelic face, with sharp cheek bones and a hint of a beard that may have grown from the time he would have shaved before heading to their airport in Dublin. All this was framed by silky looking shoulder length black hair.

“I was sorry to hear that your wife couldn't make the trip.”

This flusters him momentarily, although, being a newly wed, you guess he hasn't had much time to get used to having a wife....

“As was she, but she trusts my judgement... In most things.” He adds as almost an afterthought.

“It was unavoidable, as one of Dublin's finest police Lieutenants, she often has to miss out on matters which she assumes to be trivial.” You don't hear any harshness in his voice, he seems perfectly content with the fact that his wife is disinterested in their new home.

“So, from our email conversation, I understand that you want a home inspired by Asian architecture, is that still the case?” You ask, to cover the awkward silence that you feel should be there, but isn't...

“That is indeed the case, I am in love with all things Japanese, after being introduced to sushi, of all things! Ah, yes, that reminds me.” He whips the cover off of the blanket and shows you the most mouthwatering looking little parcels that lay just so inside the basket.

“I thought it might help you to really understand what I want from this home, if I could show you why sushi is the inspiration.”

You must look a little puzzled, as he goes on to take some small black, square plates out from the basket and proceed to lay out a little buffet around all the files on your desk, he looks at you and says

“Traditionally, sushi is served on minimalist Japanese-style, geometric, mono- or duo-tone wood or lacquer plates, in keeping with the aesthetic qualities of the cuisine and it was the way in which the food was presented that much to do with why I found my self enamoured with the whole Japanese style.”

You look at the simple, clean lines of the food and the crockery he has presented you with and an idea starts to from in your mind.

“I think I understand Mr Ryan, But, do you have any definitive requirements that you want me to include?”

“Please call me Ruairi.”

“Okay Ruairi (you pronounce it as he did Roa-ree) Was there anything that must be included in the final home, that there is no room for manouver on?”

“Of course, like any good recipe, first you need decent ingredients!! The architectural style must reflect Japanese architecture, as should the interiors. My darling wife, Eve, will need a home gymnasium to enable her to keep her fitness up to scratch, she has been offered the position of Chief of Police you see. So yes, we will both need separate but conjoining offices, and one master bedroom with en-suite. Another one bedroom is essential, two would be an added bonus. A professionally equipped kitchen is also a must have, I like to indulge in the cooking of, as well as eating sushi. Other than that, the brief is yours with which to work your considerable magic. Oh, and the tediousness of a budget, shall we say $150,000?!”

“Thank you for the guidelines Ruairi, I am sure we can come up with something in two weeks. Will Eve be with us to see the finished build?”

“I truly hope so!” He says with feeling. “Now, let's eat!”

Requirements
• Budget $150,000
• 40x40 Lot
• At least two bedrooms, one of which must have an en-suite
• Professionally equipped kitchen
• Home gymnasium
• Two separate but conjoined offices
• Japanese style architecture and interiors

Optional Challenge
Make Ruairi and Eve and show them both enjoying their new abode.
Ruari's traits are Flirty, Charismatic, Natural Cook you choose the other two.
Eve's traits are Commitment Issues, Athletic, Hot Headed you choose the other two.



Due date: Wednesday, 1st May, Midnight Central

Welcome to the Build-n-Share Weekly Challenge!

The Build-n-Share challenges will be posted every other Wednesday and run for two weeks. Results will be posted approximately one week after all entries have been submitted in the Winner's Circle thread.

Judges and Keepers of the Thread

Your current host is Kittkat7147

Your official judges are AnniePKS, FaithofKaela, and ZYisSims.


FaithofKaela is the official organizational guru collecting entrants' names, levels, links, and results!

Judges will post their results in the winner's circle thread: http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/279926.page

And you can keep up to date on our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/buildnshare
Or with our new Twitter feed: @buildnshare

Look for results typically a week after the deadline.

Big thanks to our judges and helpers!


The benefits
First place will be awarded at all levels. If there are at least eight entries in a category, up to four places will also be announced. Challenges also create an opportunity for community on the forum site. We get to know one another’s names, share news, builds, and positive words. This is a chance to get your name out there, and hopefully make a few friends along the way.

What makes this challenge different from all the other ones I've seen?
We have been hosting this weekly challenge since the first week the game was released. We have many levels of builders in our community and welcome them all. This group is truly a product of all its great members!

Within the first few challenges, our group was recognized by the gurus that be, who have helped the weekly challenges gain even more popularity be stickying both Build-n-Share threads. Since then, we have had at least one featured creation almost every week, and our list of featured members continues to grow.

With 4 successful collaborative neighborhoods (Gnomelandia, Summer of Love, NYC, and Sanshi Sumei) completed, Build-n-Share hopes to bring more creative challenges and new neighborhood ideas to the community with the help of our dedicated participants who willingly contribute and help each week to make sure each challenge runs smoothly.

The rules
All entries must be original work. Any competitor who submits another builder’s work will be disqualified and banned from any future Build-n-Share challenge. These competitors will also be removed from the Builders' Boulevard related websites if they have chosen to join (membership to the site and the Yahoo! group are not required to enter a Build-n-Share challenge).

Playing your lot to purposefully allow depreciation, i.e. to allow you to buy more stuff for the budget, is not allowed, you can of course play test your lot, but please make a note of the cost of the lot prior to testing and state this as your lot price. Also using 'low value/high quality' CC is a no no.

By entering, you agree to allow your lot to be nominated for Builders' Boulevard's Lot of the Month feature if chosen by the judges. You do not have be a member of Builders' Boulevard to participate in the challenge.

Please announce your official lot posting using the entry form below. Make sure to leave the "Official Entry" label big. If you need to reformat it, you can do this by highlighting the desired text and then selecting "Big" in the font box above. This will help us see the entries in a sea of posts with no pics to guide us.

Entries must be submitted by the deadline, midnight Wednesday evening (eastern time, USA).

Your media should include a variety of screenshots to best showcase your entry. Please include at least one clear shot of the main floorplan of the build. If your build has multiple floors, please take a screenshot of each floor.

A description of the three major level categories

Beginner--I have a little experience, but I'm still figuring a lot of things out. I would not call myself an official "builder" at this point.

Intermediate--I have been building for awhile. I know the basics and maybe a little more. I enjoy building, but it is not my primary focus with the game.

Advanced--I know the Sims, and the Sims knows me. My name is familiar to a lot of veteran players, and I've competed in and won some building challenges and maybe even been recognized in a community showcase or two. I know most of the cheats AND I know how to use them.

Big thanks to Freynas for putting this together!
http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/198045.page

Two additional opportunities
Love to build? Come join us at http://www.buildersboulevard.com . The site offers an additional forum for advertising lots, share tips and tricks, and participate in collaborative neighborhood projects!

We also have a Yahoo! Group for builders. It can be accessed at http://games.groups.yahoo.com/group/buildersboulevard/ . You do not have to be a member to enter. This group will be used primarily as an announcement center and for some of our more complex polls, and possibly, databases.



Screenshots: Tips and Tricks

Since judging will be based on screenshots, we figured this would be a good time to go over some tips and tricks in taking good screenshots to help showcase your lovely builds.

1) Camera Man Mode - This is a must in taking good shots! You will have to be in live mode to do this, but just hit "TAB" to enter this mode. Once you are in this mode, you can use the mouse to freely control the angles and use "W, A, S, D" buttons to move forward, backwards, and side to side. "Z" zooms in, "X" zooms out. "Q" moves up and "E" moves down. "C" to capture the shot.

2) Find the perfect angle - With photography, it is all about finding the right angle. Spend some time in camera man mode to find the perfect angle. Get down to a sim's point of view to take the best shots of rooms.

3) Walls up - Most people play with walls cut away, but when you are taking pictures of your lot, try to keep your walls up to make your shots look more realistic.

4) No grids - Unless you need to show the grid for a specific purpose, make sure no build/buy grid is visible when you take your pictures. You can avoid this by taking pictures in live mode or by hitting the terrain paint button in build mode.

5) More is better—Weird, huh? But in this case, we want to make sure judges have enough shots to fairly judge your lot. Be sure to show off each room with at least one picture. Also, please include an overhead shot of the floorplan for each level.

Ok, those are the basics! If you want to further your simatography skills, we highly recommend you visit http://simatography.webs.com for more tips and tricks and to see some excellent shots taken by professional simatographers!

Please try to keep this thread as photo free as possible and either create a story, a slide show, a separate thread, or use the stickied photo thread to post shots of your lots!

A few tips for starters
Here are just a few tips to get you started. If you know a few more and are willing to give them up to the competition , feel free to post below with more info!

Walls:
Are expensive. Use alternatives whenever possible.

Open layouts work nicely for starters. Just use natural transitioning and create "areas" instead (ie. the kitchen opens onto the living room, instead of being its own little room.)

Simple foundation basements are nice because they are made out of foundation, which is cheaper, and they add a whole lot of room to your house. If you leave them bare with brick walls, they cost even less. (I would at least cover the floor, though.) Attics can be good for the same reason. If you use a pointy roof and the house is big enough, there is some area under the highest point of the roof that's usable. All it costs to utilize this space is a set of the cheapest stairs and some inexpensive flooring.

Diagonal walls can be a little awkward, but because they can go from corner to corner and are wider than regular walls, you get a "room" out of one wall.

Foundation:
Whether you are going to use a basement or not, hollow out the middle of your foundation floors. You really only need foundation around the outer edge of your home so your walls aren't floating in outerspace. When you use ctrl with the foundation tool, it erases foundation. If the area is still closed in with walls and a border of foundation, you usually are left with a floating floor. If the tile grid "disappears," start from the outside and work your way in. Each new row of floor will add the grid for the row after it. Soon, the whole room is covered.

Deleting the foundation has a second advantage: you can create little sunk-in areas with a set of stairs. Kind of a fun design twist that's cheap.

Columns:
Also expensive. You know that carport? Instead of columns, you might consider using a two-level patio foundation (the one with the wood slats). Build the patio foundation. Then, on top of that one, hit shift and drag another patio foundation. They stack and become taller. High enough for that carport roof.

You also don't "need" all the columns. If you're trying to get flooring above a column, use the column, add the floor, and then delete the column. Voila! Floating tiles. I wouldn't have a massive floating object with no columns, but a few less than you need helps pinch pennies when you're talking starter.

Wall coverings:
This is something I've figured out in Sims 3. I probably shouldn't tell you if you haven't done it yet...find the cheapest wall with no built-in pattern you can find (I use Flat Wall in the paint section). Click on it with the create-a-style tool. Go to your brick or whatever other more expensive pattern you want and select it. Your brick wall now costs about $3 less per panel then if you just did it the normal way.

Floorplan:
Always go small. More walls=more money. They're expensive, and you have to cover them. Make it big enough that the sim can move around. But if they outgrow the house, they can always add on later. This is probably the biggest money-saver for starters.

Windows:
Check window prices carefully. Some of the double windows will be cheaper than using two of the smaller ones. It's usually not by much, but if you're doing a whole wall of them, it can add up.

Build and build again:
The cool thing about starters is you can build them pretty quickly. I usually find the more I build consecutively, the more I can get in and for less money.

Create a spooky story using images from you build.

Use no more than 10 images and use this story starter to kick things off:



That abandoned house two doors down has always been a bit creepy. Lights seeming to come on at odd hours... dead birds on the porch... it's just odd.

Then, last night as I was taking my dog King for what turned out to be a longer evening walk than usual, I heard the strangest sounds drifting out of the window...

Hi all! This will be our temporary thread for Build-n-Share until Addict is back. I hope you'll join this starter challenge in honor of the master of all starters... Addict! Let me know if you have any questions about the challenge. I'll have the "helpful links" section updated ASAP.

Big congrats to Addict on her new baby!

Hi guys! Hope everyone in the Build-n-Share community is doing well. I know I haven't been around in ages, but I am so glad to see we are still going. I needed a long break from all the responsibilities. Thank you to everyone who is picking up the slack.

I am so excited to see we are approaching the 100th challenge! I can't wait to see what it is going to be.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help out while Addict is busy.

Cheers and happy simming! <3

Can't wait to start. I never got the chance to finish my build for the last one. We had way too much going on with plays, volleyball tournaments, and field trips.

LEVEL: Intermediate

LOT SIZE ADDRESS & FINAL COST: 20x30 $16,430 (approx)

LOT DESCRIPTION & DETAILS: Starter for Ms. Foxglove (http://www.mediafire.com/?kam1w7nuyuve746). 1 bed 1 bath, 1 study for her to advance in her chosen career, a living/dining/kitchen room.
Exterior & Interior French Country inspired. I just love their use of bricks and stones in their construction. Garden outback is a French twist on the English garden so I hope you all like it ^_^ (It would have been better but I was running out of simoleons lol)

CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes please. This is my real attempt at a semi-classy starter home and the amount of corners I cut was ridiculous, and I would love to improve. thanks

CREDIT TO SIMMERS FOR CUSTOM CONTENT USED: No Custom Content...I believe.
