Kaylico's monthly makeover sims design challenge

Every month, Kaylico builds a blank house on stream for everyone to decorate! At the end of the month, we go through all the houses on stream and pick a winner. Winner gets a Sims 4 Stuff Pack of their choice!

July's Makeover Build will be found in the Gallery using:
Hashtag #JulyMakeover / #MonthlyMakeover or EA ID xokaylico


Any questions can be answered in Kaylico's Discord server (there's a specific channel for the challenge)

Details:

  • Upload your house to the Sims Gallery using the month's hashtag - #JulyMakeover

  • One upload per person! if you need to make edits, remove your first house from the gallery and reupload.

  • If your Twitch username is different from your EA ID, please add it to the description or title of your build.

  • At the end of the month we'll tour all of the houses on stream and pick a winner!

  • Deadline is up until the first tour stream starts - Tuesday, July 28th 4pm EST

  • Tours will be broken up throughout the week as needed - expect Tuesday and Thursday to be tour streams

  • Judging is based on two scoring categories: Creativity and Aesthetic 

    • ​Creativity: does the build have a theme/story/unique purpose? Creativity points are also given for interesting usage of furniture, the technicality of the build, and humor.

    • Aesthetic: how cohesive is the build? is it well decorated? how successful is the build at portraying your theme/story? I try to be as objective as possible here!

  • Build with the highest score gets a Sims 4 Stuff Pack of their choosing!
