I’ve been thinking of staring something fun for our followers to do while the mods are tinkering with the hood, yeah!
Would a challenge where you roll a random sim + color + outfit type (formal, everyday, etc.) and have to give them a makeover for that outfit type, including at least an accent of the rolled color, sound fun?
Or do you guys prefer genetic challenges?
Or maybe something for builders/decorators this time - rolling random sims, and then finding a house/apartment for them among the SCP lots, and furnishing/decorating it for this sim?
I’d be very grateful for your input! I made a poll with these options, which I will put up in a moment, but if anyone has other suggestions, feel free to send them!
Soon, yes! There’s only two lots left to be built, and after that we will start placing all the lots in the hood! There’s still some extra work to be done - spellchecking, descriptions for lots that didn’t come with one - but Tumbleton is very, very close to being released :D
Also, the initial release is bound to uinclude some booboos, and there will probably be several updates once more people play the hood and report them to us. But I think that at this point everyone would rather get their hands on a betaTumbleton that has some doors stuck in walls or mixed-up names than wait for a small group of people to try and catch them all.
Speaking of which, we might ask if anyone would be able to help with spellchecking once all the lots are built, since both mods in charge of the text/community parts of SCP are ESLs. :p

"The Darling Academy of Fine Arts was originally established by socialite Eugenia Darling as a private school that catered to the most talented (and wealthiest) Sims. For decades the Academy saw many affluent Sims grace its halls, several of which would go onto great fame. The most notable alumnus was of course famed philanthropist and puppeteer Robert Crumplebottom. However, when the sole heir to the Darling dynasty tragically drowned on his honeymoon, ownership of the Academy passed to the city council and it was eventually auctioned off. It was acquired by Landgraab & Associates and was soon open again to the public as a (mostly) free venue where young and old alike can explore the fine arts, enjoy concerts in the theater, and stroll around the historical grounds."
This is a 3x3 community lot. No CC; all Maxis. Built with the Ultimate Collection (i.e. every EP and SP). I packaged it using the Clean Installer, so you shouldn’t have any problems other than stuff missing from EPs you don’t have.
Well, all the buildings are going to be in the final release either way! But it’s always good to have a choice to download stuff separately. Especially since all these lots are beautiful!
