People have been asking for a smaller version of my Tropical beach as well as for a base game version, so here you are with both in one download.

The Mini Tropical Beach design is similar to the original, adjusted for size and with slight changes in content. It will fit in any 50x50 lot.


I left in the wave emitters, but the wave effect comes from Get Together and may not work without that EP installed.


Enjoy your day at the beach!

FOR WAVES:
Waves require the effect player below. They may also require the Get Together EP to function as the effect comes from that EP.

Hi,
You need to download the zip file for the lot and then unzip it. Then you take the tray items that came from the zip folder and put them all into your game's Tray folder. The CC (custom content) are the objects in the lot that are not already in your game. To make the lot look like the one in the picture you will need to also download the custom content. Custom content is then placed in your Mods folder. Then you will be able to see it when you play the game.

I hope this helps.

Best Wishes,
Snowhaze

Hi,

After installing the contents of the zip file into the Tray folder and the CC into the Mods folder, go to the in-game library. To see the lot in the in-game library you need to click the word "Advanced". The words "Include Custom Content" will appear just under it. Click "Include Custom Content", then the lot will appear in the library for you to see.

Looks great! Although I think people don't need the GT EP for the waves to work. There're a LOT of effects that don't need the Ep they come from to work in the game.
I thought it's the same with the waves, but I don't know for sure.

Curious at all the mods I made or want to learn how to make mods yourself? Take a look at my BakieGaming YouTube Channel

Hi,

Thanks for letting me know that there is a possibility the waves could work without the EP they came from. I had no idea that was possible. I made the adjustments in the text.

Hi,
Unfortunately, I don't own a Mac so I have no way of testing if there's a problem.
If you haven't already, try following the instructions I gave above to MsPuddleduck for finding the lot in your in-game library. Updating your game, if you haven't already, might also help.

I hope it works out for you.

Hi thanks for your reply. I actually did all that but the lot still did not appear, But I re-downloaded and cut and pasted each file to the Tray Folder and after that it did appear in My Library, but the file numbers in my Tray Folder were different to the ones that were in my unzip programme when I did it , so Extracting them straight from my Unzip Programme did not work. Anyway I now have the Lot and it is very good my Sims love it, and I have added some more chairs and a Food Cart too and childrens activities. Thanks.

I know I installed in Tray file correctly, but it does not show. I have had this problem before, so usually, I end up downloading lots from the gallery. Is there a way to find the lots there? I love this very much and used the wave emitter in Tropical Pool 6, and it works very well. Thanks much for your additions to TS4!

Hi,

I'm sorry to hear you are having so much trouble. Tray files don't contain any objects, only the position of where the objects would be, so it's not the content. I know it's a shot in the dark, but have you tried repairing your game through Origin? It only takes a couple of minutes.

Sorry I figured out that I needed to take the files out of the folder after I unzip for some reason and put them in the Tray, now everything shows up....Thanks so much to the other player that had this issue, because they gave me my solution...So anyone having this issue, unzip the file then take the file info out and put directly into Tray without the folder...this is what worked for me, and everything shows now, just messes with my O.C.D. LOL!

Unzip into your Tray folder, then take the file out, Mini Tropical to your desktop, take the file info out from there and put it back in the Tray without the folder...not sure why I got it and some others to show up this way, but it works, just messy to me, I like thing in folders organized.

Thanks so much for your troubleshooting, if I had not read your response, there are so many lots I would have missed out on! My heroine!
