Lot Challenge: December/January? Ultra-Modern
« on: 2013 December 18, 23:01:52 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I've been off the site for a few months because of law school, but right after my last exam, I started jumping back into the Sims and I'm really enjoying the ultra-modern objects from ITF. However, I don't want to spend the next month building super-modern houses for myself. I realize the interest in challenges has dwindled, but I figure this is worth a shot. If it doesn't work out, at least we will all have a few new houses to download. I kept the rules fairly loose, simply because I would like to see a lot of variety and let people use their unique ideas.

Due date: January 5th.

RULES:

Lot Size and Cost:

Any lot size and any cost is acceptable.

House Size - Choose One:

2 bedroom, 1 bath
3 bedrooms, 2 baths
4 bedrooms, 3 baths

Each choice may include an additional half-bath. Only one bathroom may contain the "all-in-one" bathroom box thingy; the rest must have an actual toilet, sink, and shower/tub.
At least one bedroom must be for infants, toddlers, and/or children.

Objects and Rooms:

The house must be completely furnished. ITF objects are great, but not required (not everyone likes or has ITF, and there are plenty of objects that are modern from prior packs). The idea is to create ultra-modern style houses, so any objects that achieve that purpose are acceptable.

"Hobbies" area: A study, a workout room, a workshop, or outdoor space or basement for various skilling objects (you may include as few or as many skill items as you like).
"Social" area: Somewhere to host a party, whether it be an outdoor patio or pool, or a place in the house, basement, or roof for dancing or gaming or drinking, and so on and so forth.
Vehicles: There must be at least one parking space or two bicycle thing-a-ma-bobs.

Color Schemes:

I really enjoyed the restriction on colors from the Tiny House Challenge that jesslla created. However, I want to expand it a bit, because sometimes it was too restrictive to decorate an entire house in only three colors. Below are the available color schemes. Every room must have one of these schemes (including the outside of the house), but it is per room, so you can end up using all of them if you have eight separate rooms. You may use as few or as many schemes as you like. I have provided the hex codes for each color below the picture, from left to right, in order to keep the colors consistent in the contest, and to save you time trying to figure it out in-game.

ETA: After beginning to build, I realized something kind of important, so there is a slight rule change: You may use wood and metal in addition to the color schemes below, because houses tend to have those things for faucets, window molding, and so forth.

BLUE:

#cbdee5
#434a64
#a03733


GREEN:

#81a589
#f4efd2
#faf9e7


GREY:

#929286
#bac8c9
#e8e8de


NEUTRAL:

#b49670
#f2f2e6
#975a3d


ORANGE:

#e3a26c
#fde1a2
#0166b4


PURPLE:

#7e829b
#edeae1
#806355


RED:

#89292a
#f8f8ee
#313737


YELLOW:

#f4e8be
#eeb570
#7b7263

Good onya, sounds like fun. I like the alternate colour schemes and the theme. I really like some of the future houses I've seen and I've had some good ideas from them.

Unfortunately I am on a work deadline of 6th January so may not be able to build something in time, but I'll enjoy following the thread. In fact, over this time of the year you may find this is too short a timespan, we were doing a month in the challenges earlier in the year.

Either way, I look forward to some new scrummy houses.

Oh, I chose the due date fairly arbitrarily (and selfishly, because school starts back up five days after that and I want to get my grubby paws on some awesome houses before then). If there's not much completed by then, I can always extend it to the end of January.

Also, I have added a small rule change in the original thread to allow for wood and metal in the design, because it's difficult to take a house with a turquoise faucet seriously.

Wow! Great job, phoenixc. I especially love the brick pattern you chose for the exterior, as well as your decorating in the loft space.

I'm still hemming and hawing about my creation. It's not finished yet, but it sort of went from ultra-modern to 1970s throwback modern. I'm going to finish it regardless because I personally think it's pretty cool, but it means I'll have to do another one.
