EDIT: I completely forgot that those pillars are from World Adventures. Oops. It won't be a big deal if you don't have WA though, the game should automatically replace them with other pillars / or you can just choose other ones yourself. However most of their placement will require you to cntrl+shift+c and to type in the cheat moveobjects on, and to hold down alt key to place them off grid, if you decide to replace them.


Heya! I'm here with my latest build.

So I recently moved my current family into Monte Vista, and them being a family of mermaids & fairies, I wanted them to have a colourful home with a large pool near the sea, but I also wanted it to be basegame compatible, so here we are. When I played the sims 2, I used to always make the swimmable lakes/ponds, And that probably would be possible in the sims 3, but with the CAS - tool & advanced pool tools I thought it'd probably be less of a hassle to just mask a pool to look like a pond / lake. Boy was I wrong!

There were a lot of headache with especially regarding the bridge over the pool. Originally there were lilies under it, but for some reason even though my sims swam through all other lilies, the ones under the bridge had a hitbox, and the sims would swim around them and get stuck. I have no clue why that was, I tried so many different combination of them and none of them would work, so no lilies under the bridge

Also when it came to the bridge, at first it was arched, but I had accidentally made the bridge 'one click' too high, so it was unroutable. And of course I only tested it after I had built the house around it, so goodbye arched bridge!

The gazebo for the most part looks nice, but due to the dome roof, the diagonal walls have a little bit of distortion. I tried to mask it by using a wall paper with a board, and I think it's barely noticeable. However, keep that in mind if you want to change the wallpaper.

There is a small garden plot next to the archway, that has auto planted salad,tomato, potato,grape,garlic & bell peppers. Nothing too cheaty. Around it & around the small fountain there's also a debug spawner for monarch butterflies. Again, nothing too cheaty, I just thought some butterflies would look nice around the plants

There's also four fog emitters with the firefly effect all around the garden. They start spawning fireflies when night falls, and stop around 7 am.
HOWEVER: I'm not sure, but the fog emitter might need ambitions for the custom codes.I'm pretty sure the ability to add special effects came with a patch rather than the expansion, but I'm not 100% sure. So if you see fog around the lot, type in testingcheatsenabled true -> buydebug on -> delete the blue reflective balls from the lot.I kept them very visible, so you should have no trouble finding them.
