    Eternity Monument Park looks so very creatively great! @Ainsleyf :) The architectural design of the monument looks so very nice! Each of the structures in the build have been designed so creatively! The spires and the bats look great! The red water sections around the base of the monument and the fish fountains in it looks very nice! It is great that there is a community garden planter box section in the park. The iron fencing suits the well Forgotten Hollows!
    You are so very creative in your building designs! :)

    Sorry for the newbie question, but how do you take a pic of a sim from CAS? I know how to take a pic of the sim in game, but for the sim challenge, I'd like to take a pic of the sim with a white background like in the thumbnail in the gallery.

    You can push C just like in game and it will save a picture to your screenshots folder , it takes the photo as if all the buttons etc are not on the screen

    I just had to reupload him. Had to make one crucial change..sorry
    Background Story: LONG
    Inspired by brother, Juan Ponce, Alfons decided to begin his own expedition to find the legendary Fountain of Youth. What he found was 'Forgotten Hollow' and far more than he had ever bargained for. The next 500 years were spent in study, research and experimentation to find a cure for his curse. Recently healed, Alfons is ready to embark on a new expedition to mysterious Selvadorada. He has since donated his fortune to build a monument to the immortals in the town he leaves behind. It is said to contain all of his secrets for those willing to truly study the lore. May believe Vladislaus Straud to be the true founder of Forgotten Hollow, but none ever seem to question why Alfons always refers to him as 'Sonny Boy' (and lives.)
    Notes on SIM: I wanted a good-looking South-American guide with a pinch of Indiana Jones and just a remnant of the Gothic Vampire. I played him up to Grand Master Vampire and then healed him so he has some high skills: Fishing 10, Vampire Lore 15, and very high in guitar, singing and charisma. He has other skills as well, but in the low to mid range. I was sort of prepping him to be my character for the new pack, but I don't think he has so many skills he's no fun to play. He also has a lot of outfits (many with his signature hat), but that's really because I liked playing him more than for this challenge so, I really wasn't trying to give anyone more to do @cbear13 - you can just ignore them. He's active, outdoor loving, outgoing with a curator aspiration. Because I played him he's also a great storyteller, observant, independent, night-owl, gym-rat, 'A True Master' and incredibly friendly. I left about 6000 points for whomever is playing him to use - that is - if it transfers. I only wanted to buy traits that'd work with my character story. In retrospect maybe I should have cheated him up to Grandmaster and then healed him. I Hope I didn't go too far!!!!

    It was great reading the background details of Alfons, and how you were preparing him to be your adventurer sim to explore the jungles of Selvadorada ! @Ainsleyf :) He sounds a great sim to use with the new pack! His explorer hat is a nice part of his explorers outfit. The traits that you have given to him will be very helpful when adventuring. He is handsome also :)

    Thanks so much @Rosemow!!!! I'm looking forward to an adventure pack! I miss Sims 3 adventures!

    Here's my sims challenge entry:

    QC Challenge No. 59

    Sims Gallery Name: Brindleton

    This is Captain Elias Brindleton who ran away for the adventure of the sea when he was a child. He became a dashing naval captain known for his exploration of the South Pacific and the Orient. However, he is best known for defeating the pirates that hid in inlets and bays around the coasts, terrorizing merchantmen, fishermen, and townspeople alike. After he defeated the pirates, he established the town of Brindleton Bay and erected a series of lighthouses to warn ships of the dangerous rocks and shoals. A museum/park has been constructed in Brindleton Bay to honor his accomplishments.

    Captain Elias is very nice! @lsnishi :) His Captain outfit looks great! It is a very nice touch to see him in the photo side by side with the mannequin that is in memorial of him :) It was great reading his background story details and that he established Brindleton Bay. The lighthouses would have been very helpful for many sea travellers. He sounds very brave, to fight the pirates!

    This was the most ambitious build I ever did! I tried whole bunches of new things (like making ships, ladders and cannons). The lot has two swimmable fishing holes, playground equipment for toddlers and children, chess, painting easels, horseshoes, and picnic area. The ship has a bridge, galley/mess, crew quarters, hold, brig and head.

    QC Challenge N. 59
    Origin ID: lsnishi
    Novice Builder: No
    Level: Unofficial
    Original Lot Used: Chateau Frise in Brindleton Bay
    Gallery Name: Brindleton Museum/Park
    Gallery Link: https://www.ea.com/en-au/games/the-sims/the-sims-4/pc/gallery/257AB33D1B2311E8807736427980D667
    What is your monument? A lot dedicated to Capt. Elias Brindleton who founded Brindleton Bay. His ship, the HMS Intrepid and the first lighthouse he built are on the lot which can be played as either a park or as a museum.
    Notes: Ships paintings on the 2nd floor of the lighthouse are by NaJoPau who is credited on the gallery notes. The upper bunk bed in the crew quarters is decorative only. The stove in the galley/mess does not work b/c there is no frig (I couldn't get myself to add a refrigerator to a 18th sailing ship). There are no lights in the "pool" since it is supposed to be natural sea inlet so there should not be visible lights in there. Cabin Slat curtains("the sails") don't necessarily touch the A Column of Concern "masts." The Smooth Keeper fencing do go into the "masts" have a slight clipping with the "sails". A Classic Bollard go into the Captain's Wheel Replica Helm to make the ship's helm. The cannons are made of Industrial Grade End caps on top of a nightstand with Industrial Grade End Caps also serving as wheels; there is a slight clipping with the bottom of the Industrial Grade End Caps on the top of the nightstand. The unpolished geodes which are the "cannonballs" did clip into each other a little when I tried to stack them. Rustic Walls shelves and Wide Industrial Reinforcement Beams clip into each other and the Master Chef Shelf (used for the upper bunk bed platform); I was trying to make a ladder in a small space (because the pool ladders looked out of place) hence the Wide Industrial Reinforcment Beams and Rustic Wall Shelf "ladder" which has some clipping. Hollyhocks and Irises are massed near the bridge between the picnic area and the lighthouse. In the front of the lot, Capt Chaz MacFreeling's Galleon goes into the Rocking Coffee Table deliberately; I was trying to hide the platform bottom of the Galleon sculpture. The Rockin Cofee Table is deliberately pushed into the The Saint's Anchor in an effort to make it look like the stone of both were connected. In the lagoon, creeping thorns go into Alien Shrub 1a1z; I was trying to make colorful coral with branching dead areas. Alien mushroom 2a3b goes into Alien Mushroom 2a4b and 2a2b to make it look more like lush sea life. I did deliberately put ground covers (hedera, malva, pansies, etc.) under a lot of the plants and rocks in the picnic and lighthouse areas because I could not accent that area with terrain paint and felt it looked bare and plain.

    Sorry, I just noticed in the pics that some of my "cliffs" were mysteriously missing so I had to fix that and re-upload the lot.

    Brindlleton Museum/Park is such a very creatively designed build! @lsnishi :) It looks so very great! Very nice layout of the build! The design of the ship looks so very nice! The sails are a great touch, the water around the ship looks great, and the canons are very creative! Very nice design of the lighthouse! The red and white colour of it looks very nice. It is a nice touch that kids can also play on their own pirate ship. Very nice cabin area. The red curtains, brown wall paneling and stained glass windows look very nice and go well together. The captain will enjoy having a drink from the globe bar in his cabin. Very nice outdoors dining and chess area! Sims will enjoy cooking meals on the grill and eating them outdoors in the air at the picnic tables, under the shade of the white blossom tree.
    It is a very special ship themed build! :)

    Wow, this is the first Advanced Lot Challenge that I've ever won! Congrats to co-winners @emere and @chips46; you guys are such wonderful builders that I always feel I have to up my game to even stay in the same level with you.

    Congrats on the judges awards @coolsim9999999, @Liziann1, @Ainsleyf and @Liz_GoBucks. Great restaurants all of you!

    Thanks @Laebeth for the comment on my Monument build. The ship took a loooong time to figure out how to build. even getting those plum curtains to stay on the masts took a lot of experimentation. But I'm really happy with how it turned out!

    You're welcome @lsnishi!

    Yes, I'm still working on my monument --- thanks for asking B) . I couldn't work on it yesterday because I came down with a bad cold, but I feel a little better today, so I think I'll do at least some of it today, but I'll probably finish tomorrow or the next day :). I have to finish decorating inside, and alt some stuff outside, as well as a few odds and ends before I playtest.
    Yesterday, I just played with my main family for non-challenges, and they hung out with their extended family. It was fun. Sometimes, I miss them when I've been building constantly, but I think we all can relate to that...lol :D!
