Although, these are not exactly duplicates of the swim-pool surface tiles, but at least they do function in a similar manner. For the present model , it is regarded as the basic model. Certainly, the one in the complex swim-pool tool is much more complicated.

MTS2_niol_Moi_SwimpoolSurfaceTile_002r_floor_71fc6284 has a default setting while the others are altered pool surface tiles.

There'll be a major update for both the pool surface set and the caustic set... surely with more options despite the EP6 BV, EP7 FT, EP8 AL, SP M&G version are the same as the EP5 SS version. The update will be on the shader mod as well as Gunmod's set while some updated codes for the caustic sets and the caustic recolour-mod.

Moi_shaderPool_EP5SSeu-EP3OFB-Gunmod.rar &
The material shader mods to fixate the regular wavy material as well as to add Gunmod's PS2-required pool mod pool surface tiles.
Installation: Just dump the only one appropriate version into anywhere inside the downloads folder.

The new all-EPs version for the same pool surface tiles... Note: use either set. If using this set, please also install the above Matshader mods
for proper graphical presentation. The same installation procedure applies.

The new all-EPs version for the Gunmod's pool mod pool surface tiles... Now, one can make fake pools with Gunmod's pool mod pool surface tiles as an alternative for pool surfaces... Note to use it along with the Matshader mod listed above. The same installation procedure applies. This modded floor tile(s) should need EP2NL-PS2-enabled video card to work.

Also , may check out Frillen's animated wavy tile in the following lot, he has made this animated pool-surface tile (that's a gem, isn't it?) for the fake-pool approach (probably along with the OFB stage).

Note: I personally like and use all of them! :D, so I link it here, too.

1. CEP isn't necessary for HCP products, but you won't wanna miss out some cool custom Maxis recolours.
2. To learn how to use it, may read this tutorial.
Tutorial: How to use pool-tiles & pool-wallpapers with the "fake-pool" approach
Just use these tiles instead of a transparent tile for the pool surface, and you'll see.
3. These're modded HCP products. May read here to learn how to make these tiles.
4. Although these tiles are animated, but they're not the typical animated floor tiles as described in this post .

Just may try an appropriate version to see what may work.
These mods won't affect saved game data. Should there be any, blame Maxis coz that's not expected to happen. :P
