I'm leaning towards not being required (and besides most buildings aren't exactly 60x60 anyhow. :P)

Mkay, I'm trying my haredest to get this done, but what is the 60x 60 in? I thought it was ZE units at first, and I thought I had A LOT of more room, but since I re-read the first post and now see the "Copy Wolds and Common to your Folder", I am beginning to think it isn't what I thought. Also are the submissions due midnight July 30th or what?

EDIT
I am done with my lot, can someone tell me whether this looks like its within the right bounds?

Ugh...ran into a minor problem getting my lot in-game and don't have time to fix it. If you still want a park area for the map I can send you the model for the ground and path, but I won't be able to submit an actual lot. You'd still need to add the trees and other props though, so it would probably eat up more of your time than it's worth. Sorry!

Well, I've been on an RV trip all summer, so It's been hard, but I brought my XSI desktop along and have been trying to get it. unfortunately, we're driving home today, and I won't be able to complete it for a few days, but I'll have it in, sorry I missed the cutoff, but RV trips kind of take up a lot of modding time. :(
I'll work like mad the next couple of days though. :P

I got my lot in, though the model had a few texture problems, I still liked it.
Also, it has two holes where the building was meant to connect to other buildings in a map, but...
looks semi good.
(That's all I need.)

Master_Ben, does that trip have something to do with your avatar? :P

If you can't meet the deadline, which is today, I honestly wouldn't worry about it. That's not how deadlines work, and if RepSharpshooter starts making exceptions to let people get more in, then no real progress has been made over the past couple of years people have had to do these lots. There always has to be a deadline.

Well, I meant that as a "if not all lots are filled, you could take mine" kind of a deal, but okay then, I understand. No lot from me, considering I'd have a half an hour to set up my desktop and finish it before the deadline is up. Sorry I didn't get one in, 'Rep, I would have liked to. :(

I have no idea how to model, but now I really want too!! There's going to be a 2.0 eventually, right? I really want in on this, but first I have to learn to model....

Not to be rude or pushy whatsoever, but is there an estimated release? Jw, don't want to push Rep, who seems quite busy.

It's coming. Last week we did some online beta testing. Works pretty well online.

I wouldn't worry about learning right away. Rep has said that he'll release the source so that the project can continue but not right away.
