I'll upload the lots to my site as the general policy for lots here at MTS doesn't allow makeovers. Find the link on my profile page for my site. No registration required to download, so you can snatch and run.

Yes, that would be ok.

I edited my last post and put my pictures up there. I cropped it and put the price up by itself.

I started my makeover (this is really fun, by the way!) and I thought of a couple of other questions as I went.

1. As long as we keep the original windows/doors in their original places, are we allowed to place additional windows/doors?

2. Terrain height changing is not allowed, but what about terrain paints? Is terrain painting cool?

Muchos gracias :D

Glad you like it And no you can not add doors or windows, you can only swap out whats there. And yes terrain paint is fine.

Did my entry get seen?

Also I should have asked, but in that little box area I turned it into a wardrobe by adding a door.

Yes, and welcome to the contest! What a fun and colorful home Very nice. As for the door, if this was for a score you would have been docked, but as the application is just for practice, it's no big deal :D


Only need 7 more contestants! Still need judges too!


A little over a week to get contestants and judges! Just give it a go! Or if you'd rather, judge! Really want to be able to keep this contest going!

Just attach a picture of a room in any house that you've decorated, and a pic of the front of any house you've decorated :D

Here's my application. I literally just started using FRAPS and GunMod's hack about an hour ago, so I hope I did everything correctly (those tools are unbelievably awesome btw!).

I think the clarity went down a little because I resized the pics (they looked giant but maybe I was wrong, I dunno). I hope the lot value thingy is clear enough, if not I can crop a clearer version.

Also, I just wanted to ask if we'll be penalized if we don't use ceiling tiles? I don't have AL, I've got the downloadable versions but I'm still learning how to use those things. Just wanted to ask :-)

And away we go....

Welcome to the contest GlorianaGlowbee! It's not a big deal, but do you know how to use cameraman mode? Look in Camera Controls It allows you take take picture with out the user interface and pause border. It just makes for better pics Also I love your Yoshi blanket

Thanks for the link info. I'll definitely be playing around with the camera stuff between now and the first round, hopefully they will be looking quite spiffy soon.

And just asking again about the ceiling tile thing? Will they be mandatory or just considered a style bonus? Danke schoen!

Sorry I had meant to answer that but forgot. No it's not mandatory, since it requires a EP. This contest is designed to be base game friendly :D

I'd love to take part in this as a contestant, but it's taking longer and longer (hours!) and many restarts to convince my computer that the correct disc is in the drive

SO...I'd like to be a judge instead. I know exactly which room and which house for the pics...but it's currently half 3 in the morning here (I intended to only have a quick look on MTS - always the way) so um, I'll search through the folders for the pics I'm certain I already have of them once I wake back up lol

I was going to ask a question, but can't think what it was now...

This seems like a great contest. I love seeing people redecorate the horrible houses EA makes. It reminds me of the old contest at MATY where contestants tried to fix the worst EA houses. Everybody so far has done an amazing job.

I would like to apply to be a judge. For qualifications, I was a contestant in the Build to Plan house building contest on this site and in the Scrapbooking contest also on this site. Also, I like to build houses.

Here are couple exterior and interior shots of houses I’ve built:



And since I misunderstood and thought that I had to redecorate the 1st house to be a judge here is my unfinished attempt at redecorating this house:

Here's my attachments then

The exterior is actually Morley and Bithiah's semi-treehouse that they were living in during the scrapbook contest...and the interior is from a church that I renovated for the Goths.

And we have 3 judges! Would still like to have an emergency judge, though. Still need 6 more contestants! I know we can do it! If we all add it to our signatures, we might get more people

Can we add driveways, pools, and more flooring to the walkways and patios outside?

I'm applying for this contest.

I swapped out doors and windows, but the original number, size, and placement are intact. I also added a fireplace, as we were told that chimneys were OK.

I hope the size is acceptable -- my screenshot program won't take them any larger, and I had to crop them just a tiny bit to get rid of the red "pause" lines.

That's all fine, just no decking. And no garages, just driveways.

In build or buy mode it's up the left top. You click on the 'round blue thing' to open lot information.
