Oh my such wonderful entries and all the JFF's are exceptional as always.
I so enjoyed doing this round even had my hubby (not a Sims fan) and son (Harry Potter fan) drawn in. I won't post their comments about entries but just so you know my son who is also autistic was getting really wound up with people who put the singing lady picture in the hall LOL. I kept telling him it wasn't an authentic copy we were doing. Good job we haven't had to do anything to do with the Avengers.  lolol I'd keep the whole thing hidden.


Thank you for this idea Dawn.

For anyone who wants to, i have uploaded my Round 8 items for download, you can grab it HERE

Oh! and a question..
For this round i had huge problems getting the game to work properly when taking pictures, i wonder how you guys * in Sims 4* manage to do it, i kept having problems with my doors and paintings etc. dissapearing when trying to get the pics taken with all walls up...
Googled for ages, but nothing worked.. Taking pics from buy mode or playmode made no differance at all unfortunatly.. i hope you guys know (for future referance ;) )

It is very annoying that things disappear in S4 even in Live Mode. The only suggestion I can give is, in Live Mode, if things have disappeared, before you go into tab mode...move out of that space until you see everything has re-appeared then go into Tab Mode. That is really all the help I can give.

Yes. I do. There are mods for no fade on many items in game like lights, trees...but they never worked. With the game constantly being patched...they become outdated/broken.

Thanks! Yeah it's a real pain... Nothing worked for me... I'll try live mode tonight, i thought i had, but make sure never hurts hehe... None of the mods i have work either. Plus its also things like regular ea doors and stuff. I tried both the sims 4 as the sims 3 camera, it happens in both..

I only ever take pictures in live mode and I've never had things disappear, I'm trying to remember if I changed something in camera mode too. I'll check when I get home, I'm being very naughty my class are working quietly so I'm on the forum whilst they work. :515:

Perhaps it has to do with the heights of the walls.... I never had it before (this bad anyway)

I had problems with this round too :( I wanted to have a stepped up foundation for the staff area, but everything on the lowest level would disappear. I can't remember having this problem before the latest  patch :/

I had issues on the ground floor getting pictures of the second floor windows (I used medium walls for both levels). I built my headmaster "stage" with deco stairs from simpossible  --instead of using foundations and digging out the remaining floors--  as I was not able to get the remaining floor space I wanted and still have 3-step stairs...


...and, of course, attempting to take pictures coming in straight from the second level would not have allowed proper viewing angles for the ground level :D


As I used 9 to have various heights for my floating candles, for me, I was able to get the views I wanted, but I did a lot of backing into the doors and corners to get the "full hall" views.


I use sims 3 camera controls in ts4 and have not ever had the tab controls work properly for me :(   ---It could simply be due to my hand issues (nerve damage), but I have much better control with my right hand and the middle mouse button.
