Thank you so much!

I think your pond water surface hider is exactly what I need--I'm building a community aquarium, and I have a two storey tank made from the swimming pool, with the fish from both Maxis fish tanks (minus original tanks) placed on invisible slot files in groups--but I've been going nuts for quite awhile, trying to figure out some way to include an exhibit of the pond fish that can be viewed through some sort of window, but the pond water keeps getting in the way!

With some funky wall building, I think I can finally pull it off

And as much as I've always wanted a swimmable pond, those floor tile edges have always deterred me...

I'm going to have a look at your Blue Water Camping lot, and see what new possibilites open--I've already thought of frustrating building situations that I can use all three of these tools in.

At last, a TRULY invisible tile. I will enjoy using this. Will it not work with basegame, or just work less well?

OMG Frillen...you are a genious! (Bows to a new GOD) I can't even count how many times I have wished for completely invisible floor tiles throughout my building expeditions. All three of these tools will come in extremely handy and I am CERTAIN that I will get oodles and oddles of use from them.
Thank you so much for creating such a fabulous and probably a much sought after object, and most of all, thanks for sharing it with us. I think you deserve to be featured for these objects!!

I was just explaining to Harry how it will be impossible for me to build his little prison in the middle of an island just so he can have a place to send bad magicians! He informed me that the Dementors were getting restless and needed a place to play or the Muggles would suffer the consequences. Since he put it that way, for the 17th time tonight, I went in search of a tool to make Azkaban a reality...Then, I found your TRIPLE MAGIC! OMG!

Needless to say Azkaban will be built and young Mr. Potter will go on to be the greatest wizard the Magical World has ever seen!

In other words....THANK YOU for this. I was on the verge of giving up and creating something substandard! Thank you! Thank you!

In case anyone may like to know, I have used two of these with basegame only. The floortile remover works beautifully in basegame. The invisible tile appears in the catalogue, but seems to do nothing, unless I have failed to use it properly.

Haven't tried the water hider.

Thanks Frillen!

It worked this way for me too! Not being a builder, I'm rarely aware of new building tools and techniques, and I missed so far this pearl! I'm in awe whenever I see hard problems solved with a simple and effective solution, like this.... Thanks and bravo to Frillen for having created theses extremely useful tools, and to Plasticbox for using them with such a great expertise! -

These are so cool. I'm sorry I didn't find them sooner, but you know with deciding to get a degree rather than playing sims all day. . . scarifices, sacrifices. LoL

Frillen, I've used your invisible tile in a lot I uploaded here and one of the downloaders was very confused because it got removed after moving sims in and out. This is logical I guess, since it's cloned from a plant, but actually doesn't make a lot of sense -- it's a build mode thing after all (or at least it behaves like one), not something that sims would buy and take with them.

Is it possible to somehow change this behaviour?
