"If unsure, don't grab the cake lure!" - words to live by... literally.

We here at the Cowplant Awareness Center wish to extend the appreciation we have for this botanical wonder to the masses. A well-fed cowplant makes for a great addition to any yard or home! Come see for yourself our barn themed lot that is sustained by customer purchases and solar energy! (All proceeds go towards maintaining the building and the feeding of abandoned Cowplants.) Please be sure to moo-ve through the picture gallery to see all of what we offer!

Cowplants are INTERESTING! See the lifestages exhibit, which using lifelike statues, simulates the complete lifestages and partial known history for a cowplant.

Cowplants are FUN! Come and play a Cowplant themed arcade game, or get the little ones included with the toddler friendly Cowplant Milkshaker spring riders.

Cowplants have MERCHandise! Stop by our shop and pick up the latest OFFICIAL Cowplant items: small decorative skull, small Cowplant statue, a leg of lamb (and spices) for your at home pet, Cowplant Crunchies cereal for you and even a mug! Fill your home and heart with Cowplant love!

Cowplant Comforts! Also on the lot are small vending machine snack areas, some toddler amenities, seating and bathrooms to use. The Cowplant Awareness Center is open 24/7, so stop by anytime - the barn doors are always open for 'ya! It's quite the moo-ving experience.

Important Notes
Sims cannot buy any items without it being an owned community lot.
Cereal box, if purchased, will be fridge stockable and will add small food points.
Leg of lamb is decorative and cannot be eaten by Sims nor fed to Cowplants.
Toddlers cannot visit the lot without a mod, like this one: Allow puppy kitten toddler riders

Not enough Cowplant?! Want MORE?? - Find mug recolors, wallpaper, carpet, pictures and more here: Cowplant Odds & Ends

All EPs and SPs were installed while creating the lot, along with many items of Custom Content.
Custom Content is packaged with the lot and included in a separate folder for options on installation.

Thank you VERY much to decat, DeeDeeSims, earlypleasantview, Michelle and Shastakiss for their fantastic meshes!!! Your amazing work is what inspired this lot!
Thanks also to linacheries for resizing the food clutter and moocha-muses for recolor completion and the hilarious name "Cowplant Crunchies" as well.
Michelle generously made the CC included picture for me as well.

This is quite the funniest lot I've ever seen. Good thing there aren't any LIVE cowplants amid all the statues...or are there? One wonders..

@shastakiss - Thank YOU for the lovely creations that sparked all of this. I'm so happy you feel I did the objects justice! :D

@Fyren5 - You're welcome! I love them too, and I often try to find interesting ways to incorporate them into my gameplay. I really wish we had more interactions with them.

@Justpetro - LOL, those rolling laughing smilies made ME laugh! I'm so glad you enjoy it! :D

@Tamas - You're so welcome, and thank you for the comment!

@FranH - Haha *nervous laughter*... well, funny thing is this lot did start off with a live one in the Life Stages exhibit space, but I had way too many doubts about that and so I started looking for alternatives! Of course, someone could always toss one in there to keep things "lively".

@Michelle - I'm happy to have it up too, no more nervousness! Thank YOU for all the encouragement, assorted bits, and especially the statues. They helped make the lot much more interesting and SAFE!

@Sims2Christain - Oh wow, OK I did just a quick Google search and read all I needed to know on a Wiki page. You are totally right, LOL! I played on PSP, so I had no clue. Thank you for mentioning this, now I feel in on the laugh... and it's a good one!

@NixNivis - Of course they are... so long as they are well fed or you're stinky! I'm so happy to hear you like it, thanks for the comment!

@pamreg - LOL, I agree. It's an oddball lot for sure, but I had to draw awareness to the Cowplant! If not now, when?!

@Jymn - Thank you! You're a fantastic builder and I appreciate the comment very much! *blush*

@celebkiriedhel - Yes, me too! I should have included some live shots of my Sims enjoying a copy of this lot in the upload. Now just to find someone worthy of ownership! Thank you for the comment, so happy you like it!

@AnMal - You're welcome and I'm so glad you like it! I really hope your Sims will enjoy it just as much! :D

@sweetbaby160 - Haha, I'm so happy you like it! You're so welcome and I hope it gives you the giggles for a while to come as well.

@SimCryptic - Awww, thank you and darn, I wish I knew which expansion everything came from, so I could make suggestions on what to do. You could totally try and re-build it with the expansions you have. I just include them all on the description since I always have them all installed when building.

@Sunrader - Thanks so much! I should have swung by group on this one, but I was way nervous already.

@SimCryptic - Good to hear an update, thank you! I'm so happy you can use some of the items!!! Yay!

@Ignissimo - You're too kind. *blush* I really enjoyed working on it, and nitpicked it so much at the end! I'm just happy that you like it so much to leave a comment saying so. Thank you, it really makes me interested to do more "odd" lots. :D
