    I dont mind a lot of new blood and entries... but for the love of... read the requirements for it to even be considered. Which almost none of them did... and why most all of those structures couldn't be considered.

    Almost nobody reads instructions, life is too short. Just guarantees you don't get picked.
    Looking back now there was maybe something in the rules that was actually expressed in a way that was not better explained with a 2 minute sketch diagram. I have a saying.
    People screw up for a reason.
    If you cannot understand why they screw up, it's your perspective that was different to theirs or they did not care as much as you did about a desire that they could not frame. As a software tester I often have to look at perspectives not as flawed, but as differing in the requirement interpretation, missions and goals. Often the measure of good enough is actually met before you know it.
    • For example nobody thought of it as a mini "Simcity block" as one single BA submission.
    • I did not see any Basements.
    • Not enough actual deco blocks are available for civilian purposes, not textures and colours. But the good thing is I did see some creative use of blocks together in cool combinations to make them look like real objects.
    Everyone had fun and although if I had understood the main rule, I might have gotten someplace. But for anti-competitive people like me, I was never going to read and process the rules anyway, because I was never going to win anything. Hence the cajoling to post; not that the rules were bad, they served a purpose :)

    I'll restart some of the threads in here with new guidelines in the coming weeks. We are still checking all the threads for suitable builds - so no worries about adding stuff would be "waste of time".

    Hi all...this is my first blueprint. It's pretty basic, but I think it fits the theme of this thread. I'm operating on the concept that human buildings and city layouts really haven't changed *all* that much throughout history. We use better materials, and add more creature comforts, but overall we still (usually) use horizontal floors, vertical walls, and flat or peaked roofs...and we lay those buildings out on streets and roads so we can get from place to place in an orderly fashion. Maybe hover vehicles and space travel will change that someday...but maybe we'll still have an underlying belief that cities *should* have roads, even if we don't need to drive on them.

    With that wordy introduction (lol)...here's my first bit of city infrastructure: a road starter (with lights and maintenance shed) that can be added to as desired. :)

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE these buildings on my Planet Omicron. Is there a way to download the blueprints? I tried your .zip files but the folders were named and not numbered so they weren't recognized. You are an AMAZING designer! Thanks so much for sharing and contributing to the game. Have a great week! (Enchantress on steam- http://steamcommunity.com/id/julieG/ )

    Your patience is commendable.

    A lot of times people just want to share stuff, and threads like these are a convenient avenue. Unfortunately, it really makes things difficult for you moderator types.

    First in the series of my Tatooine structures, I really like this building and the garden layout, it's the perfect size and has a beautiful view from almost anywhere. This was originally a POI (Frigidman's I believe), may hours with this edit, opened it up to make it feel a little larger and brighter on the inside. A round design to make it a little softer in appearance on the outside.
