Info

Basically, I've been watching too many home reno shows lately, so I thought that this would be a good idea.

During every renovation period, a save file will be released here. The save file can be anything, but will usually be a house, store or some kind of building. If you wish to enter this competition, simply download the file, then start renovating it! You may renovate exterior, interior, back yard, front yard, whatever you like. After you're finished, simply submit your renovation as a reply to this topic.



Rules

- no stealing other builds
- help is allowed, but if there are prizes at stake, only one person will receive the prize
- just use your common sense to differentiate from right and wrong



Entry and submission

- download the save file and start renovating to enter
- submit your finished product as a reply to this topic
- include brickcount
- the more pictures you post, the better, because it gives judges more materials to rate off of
- you may post cinematic shots and stuff like that
- basically, you can post pictures and weird angles that make the house better than it looks, but be sure not to have such weird angles that it would deduct points because the judges don't know what's going on in the house
- deadlines will be edited into the topic title

Judging

- the way how renovations will be judged will be based on design and concept mainly
- the ratio between brick usage and output will also be considered
  - such as if you used 300 bricks to create something really nice, when it could've been done with 100
- time taken, but this will give a very small percentage of points
- effort ^

Don't you build well, demian? :c

I'd laugh if Ike tried this

Don't you build well, demian? :c
Sleven and Army Guy build amazing things.

I finished the interior structure renovation. I'm tearing out the exterior walls tomorrow.

I might renovate it for fun, no promises though.

Is there a certain brick limit could I exceed it off the baseplate and make it big or keep it the same size with new interior and exterior?
