Hi,
The Floating Counters are a separate download. The link to that download is in the description.

Hi,
Once you have downloaded the floating counters file from the link in the description, make sure to unzip the file. The place the unzipped file into your downloads folder. Make sure you have enabled custom content in your game. You should be able to find the counter under surfaces.

I just came across this and must say WOW! How beautiful! I barley use island counters, but with this beautiful creation I now will! Thank you so much for this. I‘m glad to see BIG aquarium creations and not those tiny fish abusing „fish bowls“ Game or not, I hate them.

Hello. i have an issue finding the island base itself in the game. i downloaded it earlier today and i made this account just to write this comment.

i downloaded both the aquarium island base and the floating counter. the counter i can find in the proper place in the build mode, i looked in the skills-outdoors and filtered for custom content in "show all" aswell but the aquarium is sadly nowhere to be found. i dont have any other counter mods so i cant imagine there being any conflicting mods that causes this issue. are there any known issues with other modtypes or specific mods?

i only have the base sims 4 game. perhaps there has been an update since this mod was released that causes this issue? i tried placing the modfile in the mod folder on its own and then i moved the .zip file in there and unpacked it into its own subfolder but that doesnt seem to have changed anything.

would be grateful for any help. thank you for your time.

EDIT!!! : silly me, i missed that i need the Spa day pack. no wonder i couldnt find it. apologize for that. i guess i was too happy at the thought of having an aquarium island to notice the little "+1SP" in the corner. haha
