    I can't get my submissions to show up on the gallery web page as there's cc in them (both the disability related ones and buildbuy cc), even though I can see them on my profile through the in-game gallery. Am I missing some filter option or is it not possible to have them show up there with cc?

    Don't worry about it, just say in the entry form there's CC, and the judges will find the lot from the online gallery. Also you can save the living room as a room instead of a lot - it's the other button in the same menu.

    SIMS 4 LOT NAME: Domus Familiaris
    NEW LOT LINK: I couldn't get the link from the web gallery, as there's cc and it won't show up. It's "177 Sable Square - Peura" on my page.
    LOT COST: 2,500
    GALLERY COST: 114 059
    TOTAL COST: (Lot cost plus gallery cost) 116 559
    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://imgur.com/a/bzOpCsM
    ENTRY DETAILS: Here's 177 Sable Square, welcome! Johannes Peura recently had his nurse niece Maria Peura move in to help with his increasing health issues in the future, and they needed a new home. As Mr. Peura is anticipating leaving the house to Maria as he doesn't have children, they decided the decoration together for their newly built house. Their tastes and opinions don't always match, but they don't have to- they love and respect each other, and that's all they need.
    They are very happy with their new home!
    I had a specific Scandinavian-ish aesthetic in my mind, so that's part of the reason why there's a lot of cc.
    CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM: Yes

    ENTRY DETAILS: Here's a cozy living room for Johannes Peura and his niece Maria Peura! The emphasis is on comfiness, but there's also stuff to do. The livingroom includes plenty of personal touches with decor and the furniture pieces; some self-made, some from their past.
    (The empty wall will not be there at all in the complete house so that's why I left it empty.)

    LINK TO ENTRY SLIDESHOW: https://imgur.com/a/aiYDqym
    ENTRY DETAILS: Johannes Peura is having more and more health issues, so his nurse niece Maria Peura decided to step up and move in to help as he gets older, and his health worsens. Their tastes and opinions don't always match, but they don't have to- they love and respect each other, and that's all they need. Joni Peura, Johannes's brother and Maria's father, can also be seen, but he doesn't belong to the household.

    I'm very heavily picturing them as Finnish or at the very least Scandinavian, so that influences them and their house a lot :)

    ENTRY DETAILS: I have designed a living room for the Kaur family. The room is spacious and cozy: a nice place for the family to spend time together and Delshad can also spend time here with friends. There is storage space, and there are fun activities that Delshad can do while seated. The layout has been planned so that it's easy to move around here with a wheelchair and there is carpeted floor, which is also nice and suitable material for a wheelchair. More details are described in the slideshow.

    Welcome to another Fall Designer showdown! Last fall, we focused ont he spooky side of fall. This fall, it’s time for the Harvest! The little farmhouse and barn below need a lot of work if they’re going to be ready for the harvest!
    https://athena.thesims.com/v2/images/1/0x000016ed/CEF06456-737F-4D39-A24B-E96CDD78AB31/00.jpg

    Your job is to get them all fixed up. Crops need to be planted too - any type you like. Feature fall colors throughout the build and landscaping - yellows, oranges, golds, copprrs, browns, purples, greens, soft blues - all the colors you see when you look outside in the fall. Take inspiration from fall leaves. As usual, there are no pack requirements, so you if you don’t have Cottage Living or Horse Ranch, it can be a crop farm only. For those with either pack, we expect to see at least one type of livestock and/or a horse.
    You can change the siding, fences, columns, roofing, doors, interior and exterior stairs and windows. You can change the wall and foundation height, but don’t move the house’s exterior walls. The porch itself stays as is. You can change interior walls, railings and fences. Farmhouse loft: Only change it if keeping it unchanged messes up your plans for the build. Barn: Can be moved, rotated, recolored, and resized as needed. Roofing can be changed.

    The Brief:
    Budget: $250,000
    Lot size: 40x30 or larger. Note: if you use a big 64x64 lot, a pond stocked with fish is encouraged.
    Finish both the barn and the farmhouse in fall colors. Screenshots can be taken in fall, but remember to include some in summer so we can see the landscaping in full bloom. The farmhouse needsat least 3 bedrooms and 2 and a half baths, a kitchen, living room, dining room, and laundry. A basement may be added. Yes, debug and cc items that fit the theme are allowed.
    Landscape! Remember, fall colors only. Shade trees, bushes and flowers are all fine, but this is a working farm, so it needs lots of crops and space for livestock if they’re included.
    You can decorate the house and yard for fall or a specific holiday if you like, but it’s not required.

    The Sim Challenge: None this time.
    The Room Challenge: None this time.

    Remember to include the hashtag #bns178 with your build or it will not be judged! Entries are due by Tuesdaty, 31st October, 2023, 23:5:59 New York Time/EST.

    You can do it whichever way you want. I know @AlJay tends to make her own art. I almost always use the gallery, have occasionally had sims take pictures, and even use debug pictures. Sim photos tend to get counted as cc though.

    Is there a way to get crops planted other than having a sim plant them? If there are crop plants in debug, I am not finding them. Thanks for the help!

    There are a couple of debug giant crops that you can put on the plots that came with Cottage Living, but otherwise no. You'll need a sim on the lot to do the planting. Careful though, waiting for the plants to be harvestable will increase your lot cost.
