If you want to have a good look at all what Jungle Ruins has to offer, I recommend taking a look at my video.
Beside a tour over the entire lot I will also share important info about finding and placing the lot.
Youtube Video Link: Bakie's Builds (The Sims 4): Jungle Ruins - National Park (6:57 minutes long)

Jungle Ruins - National Park
Finally! I finished my first build in the Sims 4! Of course I build before, but never before I took the time to fully finish one so it would be shareable, until now!
This first build is called Jungle Ruins as it's a lot with ruins in a jungle.. To keep it as Jungle-ish as possible I turned it onto a National Park so the required objects would be at a minimum.

Of course I couldn't build a lot like this without my own mods, so below you will find a very long list of mods you need to download to get the exact same effect as on my images and in my video.
If you watch my YouTube video which contains a lot of detailed info and a tour over the entire lot, you'll also have the possibility to download all mods at once by clicking the download link in the video description.

Let's talk about those mods a bit more as I used them to make the lot as detailed as possible.
Besides the large structures as the unlocked ruins which shape the lot, I also used my unlocked temple columns for the main temple and the open temple on the right of the "overview" image.
To make the Jungle come to life, many of my animated animal mods are used. Think about multiple places where butterflies fly around, but also macaws and toucans can be found on different spots.
If you pay close attention, you might see pythons and milksnakes crawling through the bushes too and iguanas enjoying the warmth of the sun.
In the back of the lot a small pond can be found where you don't want to swim (so I blocked that with my invisible fences) The reason you don't want to, is because an alligator swims around in cirlces. Also there are green bubbles popping on the water surface, so it might be one stinky mess too.
On the lilypads frogs will catch flies every once in a while and a small waterfall will make it sound like a good place to meditate. (Just ignore the alligator)
There also should be my Water reeds + Dragonflies object in between the grass, but during some tests it sometimes dissapeared. You can place it there yourself if you miss it. Be aware that there won't be any dragonflies unless you click the object and choose "switch on". Only after that 3 dragonflies will appear.
You can also catch those by clicking the same object and choosing the catch interaction.
All these things and more are also visible in my video tour.

Lot information:
This lot requires multiple packs, take a look at the "Game Requirements" section.
To find it in your game, go to the library, check the "includes CC" checkbox and search with the BakiesBuilds hashtag.
The thumbnail is exact the same as the one here on MTS, apart from some other icons.

Your youtube link in this thread is going to trashcan video. But thanks anyway! I found National Park video already.

Also until you are using only sef-created, is there any chance you'll add custom creations gathered in separated archive to your thread?
And welcome to sims builders! Vic ^_^

Here you can see more of my creations and conversions for sims 3. ;) I`ll glad to see your comments in.

I do for my mod-showcases, but haven't shared those lately. I will do that probably somewhere in the future again.
