Contest/Challenge Thing
#1 03-08-2011 
Xander just uploaded a cute TS2 Base Game house but - just like a man - he didn't get round to furnishing it. Tongue

I thought it might be fun if we all downloaded Xander's house and furnished it - like a little challenge

You can download the house at the link: Xander's Masterpiece There are no prizes or anything for taking part. Also, its pretty freeform - some "Rules" below.

Rules:
  • You may not change anything in the build of the house - no moving walls or doors or windows.
  • You may change the style of any door or window - just not its placement. Also applicable to stairs and fences.
  • You may change wall and floor colours as much as you like
  • You may use any EP/SP you like, please say which EPs etc used
  • You may use any CC you like, recolours or meshes.
  • It is a starter house - target is 25000 simoleons which gives about 6800 simoleons to furnish. You can spend more if you just GOTTA have that marble statue in the living room Confused
  • I am open to suggestion as to whether outdoor planting should be included in the price. Xander?

Taking Part
Reply to this post saying yea I wanna play. Once you have your pics you can edit your post.

Posting the pictures
  • You may upload your pictures to leefish via the usual attachments method (that way the slideshow gallery will work) 6 pics.
  • You may add a link to your pictures in a gallery on a photobucket or similar hosting account but no image in the post from photobucket/wherever

Handy to know
Hitting tab+r will take you to cameraman mode and that way there will be no gridlines on your pics so its easier to see the house pictures.

Well, its Xander's house so changing it seems a bit hrmm. It's the corridor upstairs that makes my builder eyebrow twitch - it's like NOOOOO - space not used with maximum efficiency....

* leefish tries not to look at the sledgehammer wall tools. BAD FISH

Hey, Sofa, TV and Bookcase. NO curtains, rugs, lamps, artwork or plants can't get much more minimalist than that. Smile

And on only those three items you wasted over §8,000? I'm impressed, Shell. You make my ex-girlfriend look like a penny-pincher. Tongue

I want to play! Big Grin This should be fun! And yay for allowing us to use CC; I don't think I've furnished a Maxis-only house since the early days of the basegame (which does mean that trying not to use CC would be quite the challenge for me... hmm...). Smile
