Awesome! This contest was perfect timing for you then, wasn't it?

What does CAP mean - I'm thinking custom patterns?


CAP is indeed Create-A-Pattern which is a way to create custom patterns and these are not allowed for this contest. Don't worry about being new. Building is how you learn to be good at building and I've had more than one of my builder friends say that building for contest really increased their skill level. Good luck!

Excellent! No hurry on the entry. If you notice we intentionally put a really long time frame.


TO EVERYONE:
The post I quoted of yours is now your entry post. As you get your lot on the Exchange and get your story thread ready for viewing, just come back to that post and edit it to add your entry information. This is the post I will link people to so that they can see your work. If you have ANY questions, please do not hesitate to ask me!

Although I'm still a real beginner, I've been learning some great stuff in Zoo U, so I think I'd like to try this out. More for the fun than anything, and first dibs on all the other builds that these great builders are going to be putting up here!

Oh, what is 'decrapified'? I guess if I don't know it, I don't have it?


And so it begins... here is the link to Lew Garoo, Werewolf, and Bartender Extraordinaire.

Link to The Wolf's Den, a dive bar:

This is Lew Garoo, thanking the contractor for building his bar for him.

Yay, I'm glad to see you are going to enter, Priscapup! Good luck to you!

Decrapified content is Store content that is run through a third-party program called CompressorizerRedux (there might be other programs out there, but that's the one I know about). It strips the package file of certain data and recompresses it. This changes the package file so that Custard will see it as custom content.

Since you've never heard of it before, you're most likely fine! The only other way to get this kind of content without doing the "decrapifying" yourself is by file sharing (a.k.a. piracy) with other simmers who have recompressed the content. So as long as you don't do either thing I explained, you have nothing to worry about!

Sorry for the long explanation; I just figured maybe others want to know what it's all about, too!

AWESOME! I love that you are trying this Priscapup!

"Decrapified" is a file that someone has put through a program so that someone else can use it. For example, some of the Store rewards for purchasing Sim Point bundles have been "decrapified" and people who did NOT get the reward via Sim Point purchase have a copy of the reward item. The game (and Custard, which is a program for determining if you you have CC in a file) read decrapified items as CC.

Okay, so the post I quoted is your entry post. When you have a link to your lot or a link to your story thread that you want to add, just edit this post. I will put a link in post four (along with your name) that leads to your entry post.

GOOD LUCK!

Zoo

The builds can only be for supernaturals, not for regular sims trying to live among supernaturals?
