Tropical Beach with Real Waves!

One of the things I miss most from the earlier Sims games is the ability of Sims to swim freely in the ocean.

There's something incredibly calming about watching your Sims wade through crystalline waters, to see them swim gracefully among the waves. You can almost feel the refreshing water brushing gently against your skin, feel the breeze ruffling your hair while the soothing warmth of the sun bathes your face and arms.

I bring you, in Tropical Beach, a chance to recreate that calming experience, that healing moment of solitude and inner peace.

Here you will find clear blue waters and welcoming sand. Rest on an easy chair or under the shade of the palm trees and take in the beauty and calming sounds of waves tirelessly washing over the beach.

The waves on this beach are no mirage. They are REAL!

Welcome to a paradise you can step into whenever you desire. Welcome to Tropical Beach.

--------------------------------------------------

Note: For the waves to appear you will need to the Studio Effect Player by Andrew at the Sims 4 Studio.

The link is: http://sims4studio.com/thread/2617/andrews-studio

Download the effect player and put in your mods folder. There is no need to place the effect players the lot. They have already been carefully positioned and programmed to create waves.
To make the wave effect begin see the photos included above. They will help you find the visible effect player on the lot and show how to activate it.

Note: The effects player can be activated only when your Sim is in the lot.

The Lot will work fine even if you choose not to use the effect player. There will, however, be no wave effect.

nice ..is there any way you can make this for a 50x50 lot and base game it ..
normally the game is smart and just replaces what you dont have in my case get together and outdoor -_- apparently ether the game got dumb at replacing or these items are locked ..
well it looks nice ..

it should be possible given the fact only one of those CC in your list is ep based all the rest work in game including the paints ...it just needs to be on a lot that base game users can use switch the out door retreat rocks and wala ...

Hi,
Thank you for the suggestion. I've made a new, smaller, Base Game only version you might be interested in. It should be up very shortly.

Any lot that is 64x64 will work, though the one in the picture works best because of the background rocks. I just put up a 50x50 versions so you can put that lot in any base game town as well.

Have fun!

Hi,

The water is real - they can swim in it! It wouldn't be much of a beach if they couldn't. Have your Sims give it a try.

Hi,
People sometimes get confused with Tray files. Did you unzip the zip file, take out the tray files from the folder they came in and place them individually in your in your game's Tray Folder? When you looked for the lot in your game library did you enable custom content in in the library first? The lot won't show up otherwise.

Default I cant find your tropical beach wave mod in game play
I have studio effect player but I don't what the name of your effect is in effect player and dont know what I am suppose to be looking for. I also have the mini version too.
Both Mods show up as in the script mod file area. but in Gameplay I dont know where to find them

(I know what the effect icon is. I just dont know the name of the effect I need to type in to make the waves work)
