57 Waterfall Way (now called Waterfall Way Cove) - This lot is part 1 in a series of 2 lots (and a part of a huge series of completely revamped community lots for Sunset Vallety that I am working on).

To download more of my lots from the ‘Sunset Valley Revamped’ project see my journal: http://www.modthesims.info/journal....owjournal&j=984 You can also find out further information about the project itself here and progress.

This lot continues onto the smaller neighbouring lot, so it is lacking some amenities such as toilets. Some of the landscaping/planting in the distance is part of lot #2. The lot fits on a 64x54 lot and can obviously fit on other lots however it would require some landscaping to fit/look correct. Looks best when put with lot #2 of Waterfall Way Cove.



This lot is based upon the original lot and has been modified to be able to be more useful. The original 'lake' remains and the fishing spawns are unchanged. The few harvestable items previously available on this lot are no longer there.

Features

picnic area/barbecue area
gazebo /w table (can also be used for weddings)
numerous fishing spots
playground
seating/recreation space /w fire pit & chess table
pool



Update

Lot has been updated. Pool has been 'fixed' to remove the bizarre waterfall cascade effect and the pathways to lead onto lot #2 (the neighbouring lot) have been added in. There will be no further revisions. This should be redownloaded if you want to use part 2 (which is in the process of being uploaded).

Part 2

Part 2 of Waterfall Way Cove is on the adjacent lot. The lots fit seemlessly together as the image of both lots should illustrate. You can barely tell that they aren't just 1 giant lot, it's only slightly noticable at nighttime due to the lighting.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file.
2. Select the .sims3pack file you got from extracting.
3. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
5. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Select the house icon, find the lot in the list, and tick the box next to it. Then press the Install button below the list.
6. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the lot to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
7. Run the game, and find your lot in Edit Town, in the premade lots bin.

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

I liked the other park too, but this one has a `pool´, so I prefer this one. It´s very lovely.
Thanks a lot for sharing!

Will be adding an update (hopefully later on today) with the pool 'fixed' (it had a cascade effect) and a 'path' that will lead onto the next lot since it's nearly finished.

Pool should look this: http://i37.tinypic.com/2a9nx8x.jpg

Yes, at the same time. Hopefully some time later today, though I suppose it will take time to be approved.

Edit: In the upload process now. Lot #2 looks like this from the view of Lot #1 (this one) http://i33.tinypic.com/9au7tj.jpg

When I try to open the part 1 zip file an error message comes up saying that it can't open the file. But part 2 does open so I don't think thats right. Do you know what I could do to get this working?

Hm, I don't know why it would do this as I just tested it and it unzips fine for me.

I'd suggested redownloading it, and it that fails then perhaps you could try using a different programme to unzip, such as winrar. I use this and it results in alot fewer errors (I used to be plagued by errors). If that fails then I'm sorry but I wouldn't know what to do

Thanks, I think I had a problem with my internet or something because I realised it wasn't downloading the whole file but I have fixed whatever the problem was now. I can't wait to put this in my game! :D

I absolutely love this! It's fantastic and I love how the lots look seemless, as though they are one lot.
Well done!

Hi I liked this lot but the death rate in the pool is very high. I’ve three that I knew off. I think it might be that there is only one exit and the Sims never seem to be able to get out of each others way. It’s a nice lot and I like the combination of the two but the pool you’ve really got to watch out for.
