    I decided to see if I could get my main feature completed plus a good foundation for the rest of the settlement before entering. I feel good enough about it at this point that I'm throwing my hat in the ring.

    This plan may be more for those that don't worry so much about immersion or ask questions like, "How did THAT get there?" Answer: The giant junk robot helped, obviously.

    Dang. Double dang. Apparently, reading comprehension is not as much of a strength of mine as I thought. From the rules... "Starlight: Must feature the projector building in the build." I processed that as the projector screen. :suicide2

    Oh, well. I'm still proud of what I built.

    I really like this one!

    Liberty Prime of course. Or an army of Automatrons

    Honestly I'd thought it was projector building or screen too. My PC is having troubles so I couldn't enter but probably would have had the same exact thing happen to me.

    Doesn't this cover that requirement though? You're using the projector building as part of the entrance.

    Well, it's in use, but I can't by any measure say it's the real feature. I don't know. The judges can decide.

    IMO it's kind of a little bit vague in the rules. I would be a little surprised if they disqualified you because it isn't prominent enough. I've seen people thinking the screen can be the feature too, so I think there is some confusion perhaps. TBH I read those kind of post & didn't think anything of it till I read the rules again. Though to be fair I don't plan to enter this month, so I wasn't that attentive.

    I'm working on a projector building plan I'm pretty happy with. Hopefully, I have enough time to put it together.

    Somehow, I got it done well enough that I'm willing to put my John Hancock on it.

    I'm with @Yagisan, that's really nice.

    Now I want a shhh-ing animation.

    After the remarkable amount of work the letterboard must have taken, I'm glad to see you salvage the plan.

    That would be epic!

    I think the word search took me 3 or 4 days from concept to completion. It has a theme, but I'll leave that to be figured out by the community. Shouldn't be too hard once the first one or two are found.

    I am so mesmerized with the word search that I didn't notice the wonderful little dry cleaning shop you have down there.
    I can't wait to sit in that chair and stare at the screen!

    Same here, I find the word search to be a very creative idea for the screen. I also quite like the sphere.

    IMO this is pretty good, especially since I think the requirement makes things a bit more difficult but it's been handled really well. One thing I found really difficult with voting though is comparing settlement in location A vs another settlement in location B.

    That'd be amazing!

    It'd sure be really cool if we could make custom animations. I wonder if a Sim Settlements Plot could make use of it, hypothetically speaking?

    Thank you so much! That's exactly the kind of reaction I was hoping for. :)

    Thank you! At first, I thought the sphere might be a bit too overbearing. But when I found it, I knew I had to use it somewhere, and Starlight is one of the only settlements big enough that it doesn't completely overpower the build area. So I couldn't not use it.
