View Full Version : "Can't extend pool"....why?
2nd Aug 2011, 05:09 PM
Howdy. For some reason whenever I try to build a pool, I get a tooltip that says "can't extend pool". I had originally placed a curved pool down, but I didn't like where it was located, so I wanted to move it around. Since deleting it, I am unable to place the curved parts, or straight parts at different places on the ground.
There are no basements on the lot and there is nothing placed to prevent it, so I really don't understand this.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

When I had troubles with my fountain I could place it from 2 different angle's to meet in the middle. Then it was ok. Another thing I did a lot was to use cfe to place the bits, but I usually had another message then.

One thing I noticed about deleting the curved pool parts is that sometimes a piece of ceiling tile will be left sticking up (you can only see it if you zoom in really close and angle the camera upward). Running the level terrain over the area usually fixes this, and allows more pool to be placed. The constrainfloorelevation cheat would have the same effect, as Volvenom mentioned.

I've had the ground stay in so the pool is covered by ground a few times. I found out I could just demolish the pieze and then undo the action.

Thanks, I'll give these hints a try.
