This house uses a technique called acrostacking to make the fish in the aquarium float at different heights. I've been told acro-stacking no longer works (was broken by one of the patches) so if you DL this house now you will probably be dissapointed with the aquarium There is a work-around though...Whiterider's shiftable fog emitter does stay floating. I hope to get around to updating soon but in the mean time you can do it yourself by DLing that and just copying the codes I've already typed into the fog emitters into your new ones (ctrl, shift, click to type in a new code).



Breaking Waves
Breaking Waves is the family home of Maria and Stefan Lebowitz and their young son, Jeremy. Maria is a local styllist while Stefan is Sunset Valley's resident marine biologist. When they moved to Sunset Valley back when they were a young, newly married couple they set about building their dream home. Their tastes differed slightly but they agreed that their dream home would be modern, but comfortable. Maria preferred the more classical and elegant looks so when Stefan begged for an oceanic theme Maria shuddered at the thought of tacky dolphin wallpaper and bright coral colours everywhere. Nine long years and many arguements later the pair finally complete their dream home; 'Breaking Waves'. It has a maritime theme throughout to suit Stefan but still remains stylish and elegant (for the most part) to suit Maria.

(Note: There are fish and bubbles here but they come out quite small, you may not notice them if you're on a small screen but the will be noticeable in game as they are animated)
