This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Put the curve back into your game with Circular and Oval Flowerbeds.

As they are level with the ground they work beautifully for plants without the annoyance of the original flower beds that can require cheats to get your plants at the right height.They are also completely walk through, so your sims can step inside them and tend their harvestables.

Unlike the old flowerbeds the center portion of the Circular and Oval Flowerbeds can be easily recolored with Terrain Paints, leaving you free to create any look you desire.
Build Terrain paint fountains or sandboxes or water free, kiddie pools for toddlers in minutes!

Build with real water.
Create real water ponds and fountains.
You can even build functional, round or oval, swimming pools for your Sims!





To build with pools, ponds and fountains with real water follow the illustrated instructions in the pictures included above. Make sure to leave ledges when you build. They will allow you to keep your pool or pond within the bounds of the curved edging. Ledges can be used to hold plants or other decorations. They are useful when making pools so you can place ladders or diving platforms on them, as well as being necessary to guide your Sim through the water.


To get your Sim to cross the pool or do laps, click on the ledge you want them to head towards. Clicking on the pool floor will not register. You may recolor fountains with tiles, but due to their depth. pool floors cannot be recolored.

Hi,

Since the game allows you to enlarge objects, I made the flowerbeds much smaller than the originals, so, yes it is already possible. The only size limitation you would have in making a pool would come from Pool WaterTool from the game itself.

Have Fun

This is excellent! One of the things that annoyed me most is that I cannot get a nice, circular pond for my garden! You are the mod-mastah!!
