It was a wild and beautiful island when Modzimo Toppenlo discover it in 1558. It was like that until the day when the hand of the man posed the foot there…

The ground of the "port-marina" part of this terrain is lower than the normal to be able to create houses realy on the beaches.
It is quite easy to do :
1 - place a lot with a back side level under the road one -perhaps use the boatana cheat- here water is at about 8 clicks down -
2 - move it to the house bin
3 - place it along the seaside
4 - build your lot
* see this thread to learn more about Neighborhood Water Flowing.

Extract all files in your EA Games\..Sims 2\SC4Terrains folder
* Need help to install neighborhood or terrain ?
* Improve camera to see entire neighborhood ? : GunMod's camera
* Place lots and houses easier ? : Boatana Change max slope value files
* Change neighborhood terrain to snow, water... ? search for "terrain" in this section, they are numerous.

have fun !

Amazing job once again; Patul. I just have one question for you. Do the houses need to have slopes already to be placed in the water? I cannot get them in the water. Thanks and again, great job. :]

Yes, in my experience you must select a lot which slopes slightly downwards from street level and then place along the coast. The lower end of the lot will be below sea level and will allow the water to flow into the lot.

Patul - great work, again. I will experiment with this new neighbourhood today. I always use your Cape Town neighbourhood and the water always flow into the lots - as long as I use a steep enough slope - but I am eager to try out your new masterpiece.


I've never been married, but I tell people I'm divorced so they won't think something is wrong with me.
