Thank you so much for everything you're peeking but I'm a little happy that I did not go to the final for this round, I did not get it when I did not see the movie a final should be a bit out of control but no rules still make it happen difficult. But I hold my thumbs for Nikki. I look forward to your photo.

I was looking forward (hesitantly, lol) to doing one final JFF for DOTY, Marie...

...I was sad that I was told no; however, I when I did a cursory search for deco in ts4 for things even somewhat related to Wizard of Oz, or that could be possibly related to anything from the movie AND that would be a WOW scene from it - I was truly stumped...

...you see, my Grandfather worked on that film. I grew up with it and it was *and is* one of my favorites. I could see all types of scenes that are considered iconic.

I threw out all kinds of search strings into Google with the sims 4 at the beginning, lol... and while I could conceive of some ideas for a build...

...at this point, I was thinking I could help Nikki search for cc if she wanted the assistance...

I was struggling to come up with enough related cc items to fill out any of the ideas I had.

I knew if I had been allowed to do a JFF I *would* come up with and idea and so would you :D

There is actually quite a lot of cc in ts2.

There is a bunch of CAS stuff in ts2 and ts3 - Go figure :/

I do know, however, that all of us are quite creative. Nikki will come up with a brilliant build :D

We'll cheer her on and be amazed. I just know it! <3

hi Suzanne, don't suppose you found a yellow brick floor in your search? I found one but it looks more of a lime green than a bright yellow.

Hi Nikki - Yes, actually :D

Here are links, so you have some choices (not sure what style you're going for, so these are my opinions, lol).

~~~~~~
I think this might actually be your best choice, as it has depth and texture - more gold/brown
2nd row, 2nd swatch from left:

http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=540692

~~~~~~
Definitely just yellow bricks (this page takes a looooong time to load):

https://simsworkshop.net/resources/brick-floor-colours.431/

~~~~~~
Glossy, mirror bricks from pralinesims at TSR - there is a yellowish swatch (beige?) - I'm not sure these will work, but the only other just brick floor tile I could find:

https://www.thesimsresource.com/artists/Pralinesims/downloads/details/category/sims4-floors/title/brick-mirror-floors/id/1313993/


I hope one of these works for you, Nikki :D <3

Try using the island in Windenburg - if you clear everything off (bulldoze all the lots) you'll get some nice light...

...the other option are the lots with grass in Oasis Springs ---top, middle of the map. Those lots have lots and lots of nice, bright light (think of the lot where I build the house for the love seat, magazine challenge. You can also bulldoze the surrounding lots, just be careful of which direction you take pictures...

That straight yellow brick ought to look actually yellow in those places.

You'll definitely want afternoon light, just after changing from morning light.

Also, you may want to look at brntwaffles lighting mods (if you have time to mess around with those). There are some bright, cherry actions that are in game, so they should qualify as they are not post processing effects.

Thank you everyone for your encouraging comments.
I couldn't find a little dog that looked like Toto or an oil can, I used an Olive oil can from a kitchen set instead or a grey crane so I used a peacock.
The road does look better than I thought it was going to. Just have to wait now and see what the other two come up with deadline is still about 10 hours away it's 5am my time and it's now 8:46 am.

So it's almost over, all four entries are now in it's just waiting for the final results. However, I think I know who is going to win only one picture had the WOW factor for me and it wasn't my own LOL.

I would like to thank everyone for their support, to Suzanne and Marie who should have been in the top four with me.

I would like to see what you what have done Suzanne as I know you wanted to do a JFF maybe you could do it and post it here in you're portfolio.

I thought about doing something similar but as the beginning of the film was black and white and we couldn't photoshop I changed my mind. I didn't have the foresight to use just black, white and shades of grey. I wish I  could have made a mural though because I built the Emerald City but couldn't get far enough away to achieve the look I was after a mural of it would have made a difference.

It has been fun and I'm still a bit spellbound that I made it into the final, I was scoring quite low in the first few rounds and didn't think I was going to make it past round 6 especially when I forgot to put in windows in the diner for the Grease round. My scores were obviously not the lowest and I did manage to get maximum points for the titanic round which must have made a bigger impact that I thought.

I know the next few weeks will seem a bit empty without DOTY to concentrate on. I need to get on with a big building project I think.
