Non-Transparent Pool Water
I made this mod for everyone who uses swimming pools, to make their own custom swimmable ponds too. The thing is, using the base game pool water, you will have to place rocks and plants on the bottom and sides of your pool to make it look like a natural pond.
Using this mod you won't have to do all the work of placing those rocks and plants, as this mod will give you a non-transparent pool water!
This also results in Sims swimming in this pool water will only be visible above the watersurface. The water movement that can normally be seen when Sims move through the water, will still be visible.
For a better look at all of this, please watch my video which you can find at the top of this page.

At night the pool water will look like this:
