The Sims Community Challenge: January

Welcome to the first The Sims Community Challenge for 2022!

Continuing on from our December theme, this will be another build challenge. However, this time we want you to get creative with the outdoor space with the shell we’ve created. If you’re a part of our Discord, you may have also seen me share a few sneaky teasers for this challenge recently, too!

The Challenge

It’s time to get your gardening Sims ready, as we want you to furnish our greenhouse and create a beautiful outdoor space. While there are two aspects to essentially work on, your main focus will be the outdoor space. Utilize the space to the best of your ability and pay attention to the smaller details that you would normally find in a garden environment.

Challenge Rules

  • You must use a 20×15 lot
  • You have a total budget of $20,000 (this includes the lot value)
  • No Custom Content
  • You can use DEBUG items and T.O.O.L
  • The pond can not be removed
  • The roof must be one of the six Glass Roof Swatches that come with the Base Game
  • You are allowed to change the windows, doors, wall paint and flooring
  • You must not move the greenhouse from where it is placed or change the greenhouse shape or size
  • Have fun and be creative!

As always, the shell is Base Game friendly, and you are allowed to use any packs that you own.

Shell Overview

The lot comes with the Greenhouse shell ready to furnish, a pond and a tree with a few flowers surrounding its base. The rest of the lot is empty and up to you how you fill it. The lot itself is listed as a Generic Lot, so you will not have any lot specific criteria to fill. Before furnishing, make sure to read the challenge rules carefully.

The shell itself is simple and straight forward. As we mentioned earlier in this post, there are two aspects to this build challenge. Firstly, you will be furnishing the Greenhouse itself. Secondly, the outdoor space. You can be as creative as you want with the outdoor space, just make sure you stay within the $20,000 budget. Ultimately, have fun creating this outdoor space for your Sims!
