    Hey @Cebu2cool - awesome park, we really do need the gallery link for your lot. I have found the link to your lot via the in-game gallery, if you share it to your FB/twitter profile (you can set it so only you can see it) you can grab the link for any lot with CC.

    Done!
    I removed the CC added a few things to make up for the stuff I removed. Tried to retake new shots for the slide show but since I have Seasons my plants I had growing are mucked up and I decided to leave a few of the original shots in. They don't have the new "planters" though. BUT they do have the plants I planted. As it is the build won't win any prizes, but I still want to share.

    @Cebu2cool - you didn't need to remove the CC!! We just needed to have the linkage, which we found.

    As you are sitting at your desk reading the "New In Town" flyer, Karl buzzes you on the intercom.

    Taking a sip of coffee, you answer it, “Yes, Karl?”

    “Um, sorry to bother you, but the mayor is here to see you,” responded Karl. The mayor? What would the mayor be coming to see me for?
    “Alright, send him in”, you answer as you straighten the jacket of your suit.

    Mayor Sonny Windy walks in with his assistant, Blossom Frost, and they both smile broadly and come over and warmly shake your hand.
    “Please sit down,” you start, “May I get you anything?”

    “Oh, that won’t be necessary. We won’t take a lot of your time,” answered the mayor.

    After everyone sits down again, the mayor’s assistant, Ms. Frost, passes me a flyer. It is the same flyer that I was reading before they entered.

    Mayor Windy can barely control his excitement and takes a deep breath before he begins. “Have you seen who is coming to town? We are going to have celebrities living amongst us. Oh yes, it’s a family called The Climates. And they are looking to move here, but they need a house.”

    “A house?” you try to interject before the mayor launches on again.

    “Oh yes, but not just any house. I mean after all, they are celebrities.”

    I must have looked a little lost because I blurt out, “Celebrities? Coming to town? Who are the Climates? Why had I not heard of them before?”

    Mayor Windy continues, “Oh yes, they have their own show, called Seasons. It’s all so very exciting. My assistant has drafted up exactly what they are looking for and I know that you are the best person to coordinate such a large and important contract for our town. I mean, can you believe it, the mayors of the other towns are also building the perfect house for the Climates. It’s a town versus town contest by golly.”

    The mayor’s assistant, Blossom Frost, hands me a thick folder. I open it slowly and look at the contents.

    “You’ll see that there are 4 family members of the Climate family. Each family member likes a different season, so the house should reflect the four seasons. It should have at least 3 bedrooms.,” says Ms. Frost quietly.

    “Is that it, just a house reflecting the four seasons...in what way?” You jot down notes on a pad of paper as she speaks.

    “Well, Janine, the mother, likes autumn, and for her a wonderful kitchen and dining room decorated in fall colors would make her feel so warm and cozy. Arthur, the father, enjoys spring and gardening. A greenhouse, with a glass roof to let in the rays of sun to shine on his seedlings in his garden planters would light up his day. Their daughter, Summer, a teen, enjoys, what else - summer, so an outdoor patio with bar-b-q and pool will make her extremely happy. And Nicolas, the youngest is a toddler, and he and his mother love to snuggle together before a fire.”

    “So, let me get this straight. Each town is having a competition to build a house for The Climates?” you question.

    “Yes, that’s right, and the best house is where they will move to. So, you need to make sure that they move to our town,” blurts out Mayor Windy.
    “Well, we’ll do our best,” I say.

    When you begin to build your house for the Climates and you start on a 40x20, too small. You move to 30x30, fits the house but not enough room for a pool. Now you're at a 40x30 and hoping it works! :D

    Yeah LOL I skipped right to a 40x30 cause I knew pool and BBQ space + 3bedroom house needs space! LOL I did find a 50x50 that I really loved, but, said I'd try for smaller.

    but it can buy The Sims

    I finally got home lol picture is in the previous post but here is their story.

    Introducing The Climates! They are everyone's next favorite modern family to obsess over! Janine met Arthur and fell in love and wanted to start a family. Janine can't have kids naturally because she is a Transgender Woman. So, they decided to adopt! First they adopted baby Summer. Then a few years later came baby Nicolas! They then found out that everyone in the family each loved a different season of the year and thus, the reality tv show "the Seasons" was born! Catch up with the Climates Thursday nights on theSims network. #BnS98

    ENTRY DETAILS:
    Celebrities hidden in plain sight - that is what I call the house. This modest looking house just blends in in every neighborhood. The midcentury modern style yet is hip and trendy, but fully functional. After all and when they are not filming, they are an ordinary family, right? So I gave them an "ordinary home", but with a lot of luxurious details, e.g. the fenced in backyard gives them a lot of privacy just like the front of the house won't allow many glimpses of family life in the house. But they still are able to reach out to neighbors and make new friends in the wondeful Newcrest community. I think it will help Summer and Nicholas to stay down to earth and having an ordinary childhood.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes, please!

    Hello everyone! I hope your builds are going well - I have a small problem and I was wondering if any of you could help me resolve it. My build cost was 194,062 (including lot cost) before I went to play test it. While I was play testing it, I removed one item since my sim couldn't get to the area, but the item was only worth 280. Now my build/lot cost is 165,104 - what changed? Thanks for any help!
    (EDIT: I also planted 4 seed packets that I had placed in the build when building - they only totaled around 200 simoleons though)
