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 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.
6 users say thanks for this.

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

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 )

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

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

I upped the first amount, because there was a complaint that it would interfere with cc free builds.

@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.

I would really rather you just post your pictures in the main thread, but just not look at them 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

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
