Everything on the lot seems to work, though for some reason many sims jump in the pool with their clothes on laugh



mmarie, I think that can happen when you don't have a swim suit for that body type in your game. I remember it happening to me once when I was messing about with my SkinsBuy folder in a theme game.

Mention it in the general thread if you want to talk about fixing it.

Krisandj, Thank you for the instructions! At the time I have a house full of people for a family reunion, next week when everything is back to normal I will zip it up and post it yes

Bruja, you know it is a peculiar thing with that pool, the Burbs went swimming and once they both went in with their clothes on, and the next time they went in Tiffany changed to a swimsuit, both happened on the same trip to the park. It appears to just be a random thing regardless of body type, and even the same sim will sometimes change and sometimes not. I wonder if the fountains I put in there could have anything to do with it?

All these parks are so lovely and calm, looking again at mine it feels cluttered but I wanted to give my Sims lots to do there. It is a smaller lot, but there are refreshments, a childrens' playground, a quiet place for romantic couples, or just to sit, even a soapbox stage.

The whole thing, pictures and downloads, is at SimEchoes.

Nice job, Sita! Though the carnivorous vines make me a little nervous in a public park. No-one's gone missing yet, have they?

How did you get that many food vendors there? I had to limit myself to one because my lot was crashing.

Okay. Here's mine. It's a garden in the English style and was inspired by places like Sissinghurst, Longleat, Bodnant Gardens, and Kensington Gardens. There's a yew hedge, a sunken garden, a rose garden, knot gardens, a food court, a lion walk and of course a gift shop. I named it Maudlin Gardens after the cat.

I'm about cross-eyed from staring at all the little plants. jfade's psycho

Here's an overview of the thing:

Thank you! I have put a telescope on the platform since, and when I click on it for a sim to use it, s/he will actually run through the whole maze to get to it. It's very satisfying.

What a lovely challenge and what lovely entries. clap clap

Here is mine. It's Maxis only because I felt like back to the roots today.



Some more pictures here.
In case someone wants the lot, it is in my Yahoo Group. I have all EPs installed.

An all Maxis lot does away with the need for shopping list. Very nice layout, Weezzle.

Your participation gift is in your pm mailbox. Please delete the pm after you download it, to save our space. smile

Thank you so much, bruja.

To save space, it is probably better that I put the lot in my Yahoo Group. I have some other Maxis lots there anyway.
