View Full Version : Beach lots?
28th Aug 2011, 5:50 PM
My sims can't actually get into the beach water why? I tried to make a regular beach home using one of the lots from the game that is in the specialty section. Can someone please tell me if that is normal and how to fix it?

Is there any portals in your lot? If you have not done something to the lot (like removing portals or adjusting it) there should be beach portals.
You can get Portal Revealer here (http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=251392) to see if portals exist.
Note that portals may not be visible even if you used PortalsRevealer. They might be "buried" but this is impossible as you have not modified the lot
Actually do you get any interactions?Especially the get in interaction?
Does something like this happen:
There is still the "get in" interaction,but the sim only walks up to the edge,then the interaction is canceled automatically.

Did you move a family in, then move them out? I believe that beach lots had (have?) a bug where the beach portals are deleted with the rest of the furniture when a family moves out.

no i haven't moved sims in and out yet i only moved one family in and the get in interaction didn't even pop up but they could still build sandcastles and such

MAB-2000 had a good suggestion. Have you checked whether the portals exist?

This sounds to me as portals, either they do not exist or they are moved.
From our researches (http://www.modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=446054) we found that Beach Portals are vital to be at the correct place and the correct position, in order to be able to swim into the sea!
But we had the "get in" interaction, so your problem might be that portals do no exist.
We don't want to confuse you, so go and see if portals exist.
I would love to take a look at your lot, but I'm not using BonVoyage this time, but would you mind packaging your lot and attaching it here? It may help us somewhere.

I've been looking for a picture to show you what the beach portals should look like:
You should be able to tell us whether you see any boxes or not, and whether the arrow faces towards the water or towards the land.

ok i did not have any of those portal boxes so how do i get them?

Mootilda good idea to provide a pic!
Portals do not exist? That's weird. Have you tried to make another lot and see the results?
Unfortunately there is no way to get "working" portals, not at the time.

Can you see the pedestrian and vehicle portals on the road and sidewalk? After placing the flamingo on the lot, you have to pick it up and place it down again for the portals to remain visible.
What about the ijBuyableBeachPortalPatch.package in the Portal Revealer thread? Can't those be placed onto a real beach lot?

i will try the buyable beachportals and see if that works!

Yup, Mootilda you're right, we only tried using Buyable beach portals on normal lots...so this is a small step forward I think...
