What do you mean you don't know if it works? It looks like you tested it with sims. What size lot is it? How about more pics?

Lisen801,

So, is it EP1-required? (namely, made with build tools from that EP)

It seems it works in your system, so what're the basic specifications your system has? Like CPU, RAM, OS (operating system), video card type, any game hacks?

Like, themaltesebippy, I also want to see more pix of this lot...

thanx for sharing...
It looks really "cool" in this hot summer where I live.

Hello all, glad some of you like my beachhouse. I really don't know why the file is so huge?
Yes, I have University so I suppose you need it.
It is very easy to make a swimable pool like that it was just a surprise I found our how to do it.
From the beginnig it's a L-shaped pool. If you dig "inside" the L you find that there's water. That's how I got it. You can dig everywhere inside the L but not alter the poolside. But with the "boolProp constrainFloorElevation false" you can lower the poolside too. That's how I construct the "lake". I have recolorded the poolsides and with some texture on the beach you can have a natural look.
Don't touch the bottom on the pool or the sims will swim underwater. Don't forget to turn off the cheat with "boolProp constrainFloorElevation true" when you finished.
With the cheat "moveobjects on" you can place some flowers in the pool, etc...
I have a tutorial among my diaries on the swedish simsite (www.thesims.se) but it is in swedish. I'm swedish and don't speak english so good, so sorry....

By the way...
Place the divingboard (don't know the correct name in english?) and the ladder before you alter the poolsides and dont touch the place where they are...
Well...
