Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Ello Here's two sets of 4 floors made for swimming pools.


It's a very subtle change. They add a little bit of a pattern, and make the water appear a bit bluer.


The two sets are identical except one set is solid, with no lines, and the other has lines to give them a "tiled" look. In my game, the lines are pretty subtle too
UPDATE - They are numbered for easy removal in case you don't need or want any of them

How To Use - They place just like regular floors, except you're clicking on the pool's floor. I made a video showing me doing it, you can check it out here I hope this helps anyone that has had problems using these It appears that you might need Seasons or above to retile your pools, or Double Deluxe. They do work on a DD game, but I'm not able to test on a vanilla Sims 2 game, so if anyone can help me confirm this, I'd appreciate it

Matching walls can be found here, and I have some mosaics , too :D

jupiterstar, there are no files on the download page, nor a link anywhere that I can find. Can you fix that?

Uh-oh, I had to fix a misnamed file, so I might have been replacing them with new files when you looked... are they still missing?

After doing a little research, I realized you might need Seasons or above to recolor pool walls and/or floors, which NEVER occurred to me [I'm going to test this and update the requirements asap if this is the case ]... could this maybe be your issue? I'm so sorry about that.

It's alright, I only have University and Nightlife, so maybe you do need seasons or above,
well, anyways, amazing pool recolors!

I also would like to know how to place the Floor and walls within the pool ?

Yep, you definitely need Seasons or higher, I remember when it came out and it was a big new thing (old)

There is a cheaty way to recolour pool walls without seasons, but not floors I don't think.

Does this make your game turn out this way? Is it a default? I need to know because I downloaded something like this and it made my whole game turn out like that and I had to get them out of my game. Also, your video is private so I cannot see how it works. Please fix that. Thanks.

Has anybody complained about negative effects from the version of this mod or game crashes? Does it modify default things? Anyone, please let me know.
