~ Dolphin & Mermaid Tile Mosaics ~
Walls - Part 1


I have long wanted to be able to use my own designs to decorate our Simmie's pools. This set was inspired by the ability to use wall and floor files on our swimming pools with the Seasons EP.
Please Note:
Seasons NOT required
Can be used as any other wall or floor file.


I am absolutely thrilled how well this set looks in the pools and will be making more sets with the pool theme in mind.

This set, and all my sets, are made from square one. No clones, no recolor, all my own graphics.

Look for these other uploads that match this set:

This looks really terrific and I would love to use it in my game but can you please tell me how you add it into the pool? I've downloaded the link, went into my game, saw the tile wall and floor but I don't see anything happening with the looks of the pool so there must be a certain way to do this... can you explain? Thanks.

Okay... I figured out how to do the pool walls but I've yet to figure out how to add floor tiles to the pool. Any explaination of how to do it or point me in the right direction for a tutorial would be appreciated. Thanks!

First of all, you need to have seasons. Your profile doesn't show you have seasons, so that could be a problem. If you have seasons, just try some random clicking on the floor of the pool. I menaged to do that way.

Hi Lareine, Angels reply pretty much covers it. These can be used as regular walls with no EPs, but to use them in pools you must have seasons. You said you got them on the pool walls so I'm guessing you have seasons (???) It does look kind of different when you click over the pool to place floors but it is the same as for any floor, just click and drag, also if you shift click it will fill the whole pool just like shift click fills a whole room when decorating in a house. Hope this helps. If you need any more help post here or send me a PM

Thank you Angel and Riosmom! I don't have Seasons but I was able to get the wall tile to appear on the pool walls with the help of a tutorial. I suppose I just won't be able to add on the floor tile... shame, but it still looks nice with the walls though. Thank you for the help and the wonderful tiles!

I really like this! I haven't used it in the game yet, but that's only because I haven't loaded it yet. It's nice to have a pool themed set. Thank you.
