So if you still lose, why did you lose? As usual it's just about the judges subjective preference.

It's ehy there is such a problem selecting art for an exhibition. It's completely up to people selecting the art to judge. Or as one art critique said, If you already have a name, you can be accepted.

Does it bothers you if you win or lose? Can you answer the question why do you participate here?
I am also CAD engeneer as you but it seems we have completely different views at life. Most of all I can't understand your suffering because you gives too much sense to game. And mess a bit that you make for human is completly different product from those you are making for sims dolls.

All this pain you spread here is actual for real life planning and job. The game is space for relax from job, do what you want, for creativity. If you are not enjoy you will become tired and that's just makes you feel unhappy.
To be honest, my attempt here has not great diligence. That's why probably I shall not sad too much if I lose.

Here you can see more of my creations and conversions for sims 3. ;) I`ll glad to see your comments in.

I can't do that. It's impossible to not do my best. So I will lose just because I'm to much of a petimeter. That's fine though, I didn't say I delivered my contribution. I just showed you the pictures.


tbh i'd be pretty impressed i a dog ever posted a contest entry on MTS
Building skill and being off topic are two different things though. Well-building something you deem ugly is a challenge in itself and it takes some skill to nail it in my opinion

Anyway as Victor said, I think most of us are in for the fun and creative boost rather than the fame and glory

I have just decided that this competition is not for me, so it's fine. It was just a rant. This game is not something I do for fun. It's a creative outlet for me. I haven't been working in the industry. I go to school. Creativity is deadly serious to me. I play civ6 to have fun frankly, so there you are. People are different. I've only had boring shop assistant jobs.

Oh dang it. You said about creative outlet, and i just found it's for me also.
I am sorry for talk too personally. Hope i will not hurt you in any part of my speech. I want you to stay in competition, and wish you and me a good luck ^__-

I entered this with a build I had to "borrow" from my Jankowskys in my BACC challenge and it was actually built 160 years before the term McMansion was even invented though that build would've fallen to city planning if it was build 160 years later than it's actual date of contstruction and it only got by because many early settlers made hat kind of mistake in their first attempts at building their homes.

So we conferred over the week and have to say that you've all outdone yourselves, so this was a really really tough call!

We have decided on the following winners:

Most Monstrous: @sadbanana


Castle Calamity: @watts459


Basic Beige: @vandra


I C U P: @CatherineTCJD


Phil Special Services Award: @Spiderses


Brutalism: @Monsieur_Oshima

The stickers will be winging it to you over the week (the sticker elves went on strike) ! Seriously though, thanks for taking part, everyone! This is the kind of messy, random fun that we love here!

I don't think anyone attempted the Mini Mcmansion category so it's just been disregarded

It was fun taking a badly built home from my BACC and showing off my homesteading settlers making their novice mistake building their home.
