Coming out of your comfortzone is what this contest is about. Learn a few things and having fun at the same time.

But you all did an outstanding job on the scandinavian room!

 :bravo: :bigtup: :bravo:


I'm not even sure what my comfort zone is I always thought it was historical until round 2. Now I think it's rather eclectic I like it so I use sort of thing.  lolsmile

Ivyrose, it is not a bad thing to not know what your comfort zone is. I have to enter challenges like this to actually try to get out of my contemporary style. Every house, room, sim or sims, look the same in my game. I love to research the theme, download, and the try to use the Ideas in game. It is also very nice to see how others have interpret the theme! And steal an Idea or two ;-)


-Every one is doing very well, I hope you all enjoy it! smileyjuggler

I think, without having really considered it openly, the main point behind the entirety of the DOTY contests throughout the years has been not only, as Enla said, to push people outside of their comfort zones, but also to steal an idea (or 90) to use in their games. For those of us that create things (meshing, recoloring, etc.) for the game, we too get pushed far beyond our comfort zones....and sometimes, it can be very daunting!

For me, it was the BoHo Kitchen, and the Scandinavian Study. Riekus13 managed to literally creep me out with this round! Betsy put me well beyond my comfort zone with the BoHo Kitchen round (and I can assure you, I was not alone there). But, I learned a LOT, and I had even more fun. Better yet, I got a ton of new ideas from looking at everyone's rooms, that I have been using in my game.....and for recoloring styles.

DOTY may be difficult, but it is SO worth it! Everyone has done so well, and it's amazing!
