View Full Version : Upper level/roof "fake" pool tutorial..
6th Oct 2005, 4:00 AM
This is an extension of my tutorial named "tutorial for making split level on the 2nd floor or higher" found here (http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=94576)
You need that tutorial as well as this one to make a rooftop or upstairs pool.
You follow the upper floor split level tutorial until you finish step 6 and then switch to this tutorial.
It isn't a "real" pool built using the "pool tool" but it has all the same actions as a real pool and looks pretty cool! Sims will still dive into it and swim, you still get water effects and splashes etc, and your sims still earn body skill points!
The tutorial is in word and html format and you will need winrar to unpack it :)

It is just a wall/floor "pretending to be a pool, but it's functional, in that the sims swim in it - you can download the water tiles and walls in this thread in post number 2

This is a simple and brilliant tutorial, thanks Jonesi.
One question [i will try this out asap]: Will my sims climb out without any issues? I'm referring to what happened when i tried making lakes swimmable the 'easier' way and just ends up swimming.
