Are we allowed to crop images?


If we have a WCIF about finding items for our DOTY entry should we ask in the DOTY WCIF thread or the normal WCIF THREADS.

Betsy I have question about the layout, there is 3 doors in the room are all of them 2 tiles? Or is the one under the stair 1 tile?
Title: Re: DOTY 2016: Round 1 ~ Questions or Comments
Post by: 13pumpkin on April 06, 2016, 11:49:15 AM
Enla, The front door and the door opposite to it are 2 tile. The door behind the stairs is a 2x1...meaning it is a 1 tile door sitting on 2 tiles.

BlueHopper, any WCIF's for DOTY should be made in the DOTY WCIF thread.

so does the front door have to be a double door or can it be a big door as long as its two tiles wide?
Title: Re: DOTY 2016: Round 1 ~ Questions or Comments
Post by: 13pumpkin on April 06, 2016, 02:13:57 PM
Must remain as a 2 tile door.
All door and windows must remain as shown in the floor plan...however, you may use any doors or windows, as long as they reflect the theme.

I have a quick question, too.
For the hanging hats.coats -- do we have to have both hats and coats, or can we have one or the other?

I have two questions, concerning the stairs, there must be two tiles between the bottom step and the wall? and can be built on a small plot or should the rest of the rounds hang with the hall, so I should swerve a large plot.
Hope you understand what I mean.
Title: Re: DOTY 2016: Round 1 ~ Questions or Comments
Post by: Betsy4Arts on April 06, 2016, 08:08:03 PM
The Round 1 entry will only be used for Round 1. So you may use a small lot and then remove the room and all it's belongings after you take your pictures. This will be true for all Rounds.

thanks for the answer to my earlier question.
I was just coming back to ask the same thing -- regarding the stairway.  the guideline pic has us putting two at the top end of the stairway and at the bottom of it, in 2, we need 5 tiles for a straight shot stairway alone making it so that we're ramming into the entry door wall.
Do you want us to go find suitable 2-tile stairways or ladders, or is a modular stairway that turns at the corner acceptable?
We could get creative with moveobjectson and cram half the stairway into the wall with the 1-tile door, and then get creative with photoshop and invent the rest of the stairway on a wallpaper. jk.
Title: Re: DOTY 2016: Round 1 ~ Questions or Comments
Post by: BlueHopper on April 07, 2016, 05:33:56 AM
I also have another quick question. can we knock out the wall under the stairs or should it remain there.
Title: Re: DOTY 2016: Round 1 ~ Questions or Comments
Post by: certain on April 07, 2016, 05:59:01 AM
Ivyrose: The way you decorated makes it feel warm and inviting.
Betsy4Arts: That bench! I love it! The perfect one for this theme.


The stairs is impossible to do it that way in Sims 2. It's just because she used Sims 4 as reference and their stair lengths are different than Sims 2.  I honestly didn't even notice until I read your question.
Title: Re: DOTY 2016: Round 1 ~ Questions or Comments
Post by: 13pumpkin on April 07, 2016, 11:45:02 AM
Deatherella: I see what you are saying. In Sims 4 the stairs are places differently and left me with 2 tiles at the bottom landing. But if you notice in Betsy's and certain's entry...they only have one sim-square at the bottom, which is fine. As long as the dimensions of the room do not change. :)

BlueHopper: I am sorry but all walls must remain as is.

@13Pumpkin yes I thought that might be the answer, I just wasn't totally sure if that counted as one of the walls or not, but I went ahead and did my entry that way.
@Ivyrose: so brave of you to kick off DOTY and you did it with a bang  :bravo: . The shabby rustic mix you went for in your entryway is beautiful, and I will say it really inspired me
@Betsy4Arts: itís a good thing we arenít Ďcompetingí against you, your entry is beautiful  :tedheart . That little garden spot is so creative and it fits in so well with the theme  :) .

@certain: Your entry is so good  :love0001: . Itís rustic without being the stereotypical idea of what one might consider rustic. I like all the personal touches, whoever lives here seems like the creative type.
@kacicka777: I  donít know if you know or not but Iím a HUGE fan. I am in love with every design of yours Iíve seen and your DOTY 2016 Round 01 entry is no exception. Seriously beautiful space  hearts

I have another question regarding the stairs. I'm using TS4 and noticed of I alter the. wall height to medium, I have only 1 square at the bottom of the stairs. Is that ok, or do we need to use the lower height walls only?

Ps, loooove the entries so far everyone, I'll need to bring my A game!

Geengirl: I use TS2 and has only one space below the stairs so I think it is ok. But one must not change the wall height.
Title: Re: DOTY 2016: Round 1 ~ Questions or Comments
Post by: 13pumpkin on April 08, 2016, 11:35:50 AM
Greengirl: as long as the room dimensions remains the same, if you have 1 square or 2 at the bottom is fine as all 3 games are different in how stairs are placed.

Guys I have some bad news. I've been ill for a couple of days and I haven't been able to work on my entry at all. The fever is pretty high and barely goes down with medicine. My mom insists on taking me to the hospital if it continues tomorrow, something I'm really dreading. I hate hospitals, doctors, the poking, the probing, the tests, everything.so if I'm forced to go to the hospital tomorrow I'm won't be able to work on it at all tomorrow. I hate to be the one to break the ruleso I'll try to work on it on sunday. I wonder is the first round deadline on sunday?: I mesomewhere while typing... gues the fever. :p

Lady Raven: I am so sorry but as the rules state: Once pictures are posted they can not be edited. So everyone who is left to post your entries, make sure they are as you want, you can not change them once posted.

xoneirox: Please feel better soon and let us know how you are doing. We'll be thinking of you. Take care.. minibud  And yes, you have until 11:59pm on Sunday night to get your entry in. But even if you can't post anything, this round has no eliminations so you can still go on to Round Two.

Thanks for your wishes. I'll try to post my entry but it's nice to know that there are no eliminations if i don't make it. My fever now is 39 oC with no signs of dropping anytime soon and I actually lied to my mom that it's 38,5 oC cause she would probably knock me down and drive me to the hospital tonight lol and i really don't feel like it.
Betsy thanks for editing the mess in my post. I don't know what happened but there seems to be something wrong with the -s in my keyboard.

I'm using a ladder stairway (you now, itty bitty stairs made from ladder mesh), should I fill in with one BB nook or two? One gives me 3 tiles at bottom of stair, 2 gives me 2 tiles. Just wondering how many tiles I should make sure i have between the bottom of the steps and the front door wall?
Other than that, it's time to make recolors to make it all match better real quick and finish cluttering it up.

I know there are no eliminations in round 1 but do we still get marks and will they found towards round 2? I notice that in some of the entries people have missed out out a requirement and I'm still not entirely sure mine is correct regarding the front door. It's two tiles wide as requested but not two doors which everyone else has done.

Must remain as a 2 tile door.All door and windows must remain as shown in the floor plan...however, you may use any doors or windows, as long as they reflect the theme.


Should have confirmed that it was two doors needed as mine is a two tile door but not double (two) doors.

I did state that is was a 2 tile door (as also shown in the floor plan) The front door and the door leading to the rest of the house, directly opposite of the front door, is a 2 tile door. The one behind the stairs is a 1 on 2 tiles. Many people used a 1 on a 2 tile front door. Floor plan clearly stated otherwise.

So it should have been two doors?


See my point is in the wording a two tile door in my understanding is a door that takes up two tiles, where two doors (or a double door) was called for it should have been said two doors to avoid any misunderstanding. Your reply also stated that it could be any door or window as long as they were in the same place.


Can you please answer my question regarding the point system, will this be taking into consideration in round 2?


Also does each round start on a Wednesday?


Many thanks, I just want to be sure I don't make any silly mistakes in the next round.

Ivyrose:
If you look at the floor plan, you can clearly see that it is a 2 tile door...meaning double door...verses the side door that is a 1-tile door ON 2-tiles.
Many entries have the same issue you are having (no door or wrong size door exct...) I also said that you may use ANY doors or windows as long as they reflect the theme.

Yes, there will be judging this round and it will carry through to the other round(s). No eliminations though :)

So it should have been two doors?


See my point is in the wording a two tile door in my understanding is a door that takes up two tiles, where two doors (or a double door) was called for it should have been said two doors to avoid any misunderstanding. Your reply also stated that it could be any door or window as long as they were in the same place.


Can you please answer my question regarding the point system, will this be taking into consideration in round 2?


Also does each round start on a Wednesday?


Many thanks, I just want to be sure I don't make any silly mistakes in the next round.

Thanks for asking the question, I understood 2 tile door to mean the same as you. Thanks for the clarification. 13pumpkin

SanoySims: Great use of the beams and columns. My favorite two shots show the space and I believe the beams sell it.

Mine is finally in.
I had an awful time with two naughty children while I was trying to get my pics done on time so when the clock hit 9 p.m. at my house I called it time to hit photshop and do some resizing.


Everyone has such amazing entries. I keep forgetting to hit the thanks button when I look at them, but I'm thanking you all in my mind.

Thanks, Dawn.

I think I have been miscalculating the time. Am I not only one hour off from EST over here in the middle of the U.S. with CST??? Or am I two hours earlier? I made mine in by a few minutes thinking there was another hour to go. Wow.

Everyone made it in time, and what lovely entries since the last time I commented ( ゚▽゚)/

@miklin83: the soft natural colors and textures in your entry are so pretty, it has this kind of vintage rustic glow about it (*^▽^*)

@pikkonoloidlee: oh my, your entry is lovely (๑★ .̫ ★๑). The green tones in your color palette are beautiful

@Michelle: such a beautiful entry. I love your choice of side-table and bench, it fits so perfectly with the theme (*^v^*)

@Petunia Mae Witherbottom: I like the combination of the dark wood doors with the white wood walls, it gives your entryway some nice contrast

@Enla: the lighting in your entry is so beautiful (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

@13pumpkin: I.Am.In.Love ლ(́◉◞౪◟◉‵ლ). Your entry is an absolute stunner.

@Greengirl:  I love the colors; they look like they belong in a fall color palette, which works so well for the rustic theme (į◡į♡).:。.

@xoneirox: oh lord yes; love all the light colored wood and the cowhide rug, really pretty ♥~(Ď▽^人)

@madartist: beautiful job. I really like what you did with the shoes, and that bicycle planter is my new favorite thing

@Sanoysims: ♡ฅ(ᐤˊ꒳ฅˋᐤ♪) Is this the real life, is this just fantasy ♡ฅ(ᐤˊ꒳ฅˋᐤ♪)? LOL, seriously this is so beautiful. I love the texture on everything and the lighting in the room is superb.

@Deatherella: I like the little details you added like the gnome and the sleeping pup .

Donīt I know it! But what to do....  awwwwow  You can only do your best, and enjoy it while doing it. I think my rota will match a bit better if I am lucky to continue...But all entries are so good and the chance is on the smallish side, but it would bee zero chance of continuing if I donīt do round 2 and hope for the best.

This is exactly right. "You can only do your best, and enjoy it while doing it. "

Do DOTY because you enjoy decorating and pushing yourself creatively. All of the entries were wonderful and you should all be proud of yourselves ! Being brave enough to jump into the DOTY craziness is a huge step in itself !  lolol

I agree, I do my best, and it works, it's good. I know I will not win but it would be a bit boring to be the first to go out but then I guess I'll continue with the JFF. I'm doing this for the first time and are with because it's fun and you learn new things all the time and will hopefully be better at, but I am LOUSY to take good pictures, I read lots of articles to learn to take good pictures. Practice makes perfect.
