Course 2: Using the Constrain Floor Elevation Cheat in Five Lessons
Lesson 1: Beginner CFE, the Rules of CFE
Lesson 2: All about arches (part one)
Lesson 3: All about arches (part two)
Lesson 4: All about vaulted ceilings and more
Lesson 5: Water slides, pool covers, and airship hulls
ATTENDANCE: Attendance is highly recommended but not mandatory as you could view the thread after the class is over. However, the attractive idea here is that you will be doing a step-by-step build with other students and with a teacher available as you build to answer your questions and to give advice if needed.
REGISTRATION: Registration is not required, but would be very helpful so that I can gauge interest in this project and have an idea of my class size before I start the class. No obligation is incurred by registering and you may register and attend the first class without continuing through the entire course.
First Course: "Building a Farm" is available in three lessons as an online self-paced tutorial. See links below.
Lesson Number 1, "Building the Barn" is available here:
Zoo U students, after registration, please do the following (some things are marked optional, but if it is not marked that way, I will assume that you will do it before next Saturday's lesson).
1. Bookmark this thread so that you can find us for the next lesson. This is where the class will be taking place.
2. If you have not accepted a friend request from me, please consider doing that. (this step is optional)
3. IMPORTANT: The class may involve moving back and forth between this thread and your game. You will be posting questions and comments as well as seeing the photo and description of the build step you are supposed to be doing. It is important that you can have the forum opened to this thread but minimized as you build and have your game open but minimized as you come here to post. Please try this out before next week by minimizing this window right now, opening up your game and starting a new game, saving your game and hitting the "windows" key on your keyboard (if you have a Mac, kindly scroll down to post four and my friend Wibble will tell you how to do this!) and posting something in this thread (like "Testing that I can post while my game is open") and then going back into your game to make sure all is running well. This all works fine on MY computer, but everyone's machine is different and you don't want any unpleasant surprises next week.
4. I am going to be adding some links to useful threads I'm making for students in Zoo U. It is optional that you do any of those, but they will help you have a smoother time as a builder. I would at least go look at what has been posted, but even that is not required. (This step is optional)
I'm 9 hours ahead of PST, so the class will be a bit late for me but I'll definitely be having a look afterwards. I'm using CFE on the build I'm doing at the moment and it will be interesting to learn more.
I'm a busy mom of two young children who don't go to bed until 8:30/9:00pm, so I won't be able to attend this one live, but I'll definitely be checking it out later in the evening. I've done some CFE work but still feel like I'm on a learning curve with it, and I am eager to become more proficient. Thanks for hosting these, Zoo!

I'll register you anyway since you can view the lesson online later. Welcome to Zoo U!

No problem, you can view these lessons at your own convenience. I will register you and Welcome to Zoo U!
