This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Here's Three different waterfalls for your pools, ponds, and fountains. Each waterfall has three different sizes and different color swatches. The rock waterfall, converted from Sims 3, can be used for building custom natural waterfall or a nice add on to a home. The basic waterfall can be easily hidden, so you can make a custom waterfall of your choosing. The modern waterfall, also a sims 3 conversion, is great with home and modern builds. Use the moveobject cheat to place, use the ctrl + 9/0 and/or alt + left mouse button cheat to position in place. All three light up like the ones in Spa Day. Each Waterfall is located in the pool objects and fountain deco area in build mode and they cost $1 each. Feel free to recolor.

Personal Note: I've been making CC for the Sims sense Sims 2. I decided to share and see what happens. Be nice. I have a background in CAD, Art, and computer hardware and software.

EDIT

I was informed that the waterfalls can be swam through, I thought it was a mod I had but I guess not. If you want that from happening, you might need to put an object in the way that has a footprint. I hope this doesn't cause too many issues.

EDIT
I solved the issue with the footprint. I made them separate files, so you can have both in the games. The new files are the same ploy and name except, I added footprint after the names.


Polygon Counts:
Basic Waterfall (Short, Med, and Tall)
LOD 0 - 16 Poly
Shadow LOD - 12 Poly
Only one LOD group per object

Modern Waterfall (Short, Med, and Tall)
LOD 0 - 180 poly
Shadow LOD - 176 poly
Only one LOD group per object

Rock Waterfall (Short, Med, and Tall)
LOD 0 - 2369 poly
Shadow LOD - 2365
Only one LOD group per object

Additional Credits:
SIms4Studio, Paint.net, TSR Workshop, Blender, and TinkerCAD https://www.tinkercad.com/ (great site for making .ogj files)

I have quite a bit, I'll keep uploading my items. I can only upload two strings at a time. I tend to see a need for something and make it. I'm working on an in-ground hot tub, it's challenging, but I'm almost there.

Heya firstly this is awesome, great work! But I'm at little confused, does this need spa day or not?

I cloned them from The Spa Day Waterfall pack, If anyone knows if they work without it, let me know, because that would be awesome.

Two of the waterfalls show missing footprint when I try to place them, one of the rocks and I can't remember the other. I downloaded the footprint version. You may want to take a look.

I have a set with Zero footprints so the sims can swim through the waterfall and the other set has footprints. Try using the moveobjects cheat, I have to use it to place the zero footprint waterfalls. Just to be safe and make sure the file wasn't corrupted, I re-downloaded the file from here and it's showing all the waterfalls with zero footprint, not actually missing the footprint altogether. Sometimes files become Damaged when downloading. Try Re-downloading the file, use with the cheat, and see how it works. if your still getting the issue, let me know.

Thanks Julia

could you make the basic waterfall (the one with nothing) into a sims 3 conversion and available in 1 to 2 tiles? I'm desperately looking for a waterfall to use by a bathtub.
