A simple 'I LOVE YOU' for making these doesn't begin to describe how amazing your creations are. If I could I would clone you and populate the world with hundreds of Alex Stantons in your honour.

Lovely set. Thank you for posting it. Can I just ask why we need Bon Voyage to use the waterfall? I've had waterfalls in my game since before Pets that I use. Does it do something special, some special animation that only comes in Bon Voyage?

I wonder if its the water animation from the monkey king fountain that turns to lava if you try and add soap.

Thank you Alex, I love the plants and was so excited to see that you finished the waterfall but sadly I cannot use it because I do not ever want BV on my computer because of the SecuRom that comes with that EP.
