View Full Version : Wanderlust, a new Sims 2 building contest

3rd Feb 2018, 2:19 AM
Well, it has been a while since our last building contest, Jo's Community Spirit to be exact, so we figured it was time for a new one. Wanderlust (http://modthesims.info/showthread.php?p=5338031&posted=1#post5338031) is a Sims 2 building contest for various cultural/geographical locations that you would like to visit. The various rounds will be comprised of assorted community lots that you can go visit, and one residential lot as well for the following types of locations: tropical, desert, mountain/country, and eastern.

Although it is based on Bon Voyage, Base game on up is welcome, and people of all building skill levels. Judges are needed as well. Come on by and sign up to be a contestant or a judge. :)

I am so in! Question though, will cc be allowed? I have some sims 3 conversions that would work.

Can I post here instead of the other topic..I really don't want to see the entries until I get mine in...please..

Well you can post here, I suppose, or in Jo's discussion thread for it, if you have questions, or pm, but you will have to post pictures there in the main thread :) But you will miss the fun! Meantime please try not to stress :) win or lose... or in your case, play along, it is meant to be an enjoyable learning experience (not that we all don't get competitive :P )

Am going to lurk in the background and enjoy this contest. Good luck to everyone

This is a shout out to all contestants and play alongs that I am not sure know it has officially begun. The first round ends 2 weeks from today! If you showed interest, I added you to the play along list, so if you have changed your mind, or I misunderstood please let me know please :)

Sweet. I have the next 4 days off from work and will try to upload by the end of the week

Thanks! I'm trying to decide if I want to do a TexMex or an Oriental type restaurant...

I saw the countdown, I am looking forward to being a contestant :-) I doubt I'll get my entry in until next week, though, as the weekend has just finished (boo - come back weekend!). I am off work for half-term next week, though, so I look forward to working on this round!

gdayars..is that list just the contestants that are being judged..and not the play alongs..because I don't see my name on that list above ?????

Where is Jo's discussion thread??

Also, sorry the reason I don't want to post in the entry page is because I don't want to see the entries..I don't want to be influenced on what is already there..

One more thing sorry..even though I am a play along..is there a way I can be judged..if not that is ok..I would just like to know what I did right or wrong..and what I can change in the future..

I believe Jo said she would do comments for playalongs @broomhilda61 and that list isn't all the contestants/play alongs that is the ones who didn't know it had begun. You knew already ;)

4th Feb 2018, 7:37 PM
Thank you gdayars.. :)

4th Feb 2018, 8:34 PM
I'll try and get a start on my first entry tonight :)

4th Feb 2018, 9:16 PM
I upped the first amount, because there was a complaint that it would interfere with cc free builds.

4th Feb 2018, 9:22 PM
@broomhilda61 if you can keep play alongs to either the official thread or the one in the sims 2 chats section, not this one in site news. Just so they aren't in 3 separate places.

4th Feb 2018, 9:29 PM
I would really rather you just post your pictures in the main thread, but just not look at them :D but really you don't have to hang out there until you post your round. however once you post, please feel free to hang out there :)

4th Feb 2018, 9:42 PM
Ok I got you all confused...I'm sorry..

No once I get my entry up which I am struggling with finding things that actually can be downloaded lol..without a broken link..getting help with those..

No just the posting for questions and things like that..posting here..

It's ok..I will just scroll really fast through the pictures and comments until I get mine up..sorry to confuse you all..

Thank you so much Jo..

Excellent. I'm booked through Tuesday night (precinct caucuses, whee!) so you'll see mine later this week.

5th Feb 2018, 6:54 AM
I've started last night but thank you for the thoughtful note @gdayars =)

6th Feb 2018, 2:11 AM
Ok I have a question...You said this restaurant has to be playable..so the kitchen, bathroom if there is one and the seating all has to be playable..you have to be able to cook, seat customers and all that right..now how do I explain this..I'm even having a hard time explaining..or asking the question..

So do we put a sim in there to show that it is playable.????

Sorry if I am not explaining or asking the question correctly..

It is best if you test yourself but we can pretty much tell from the floor plan :)

I want to apologize to everyone for not getting back and congratulate everyone for your wonderful Wanderlust entries..and when I could it was then closed..so I am hoping that I can post here..

My daughter is out of the hospital..but it looks like more surgeries..she is on a walker and has a full brace around her from boobs to butt..
