This is actually way off since I am just starting to learn object creation and object modding (I am still in the infant stages when it comes to the modding part ), but I am wondering if it is even possible to create a diving board and water slide?
I thought up this the other day when I was using the diving well in sims 3 and when I was seeing other members try to create a water slide with the regular slide.
For the diving board, it is tempting to think that one could use the dive animation try to mod it on the "diving board". With the water slide, to use the slide animation from the regular slide.
The problems I am already seeing is that there needs to be a way to register the "diving board" and "water slide" to be able to recognize the swimming pool (so the sims are not walking on water after they slide down it).
The other problem is having the sims recognize that they need to change into their swimsuits.
Note that I am just thinking a ways off since I am still new to object creation. I am just wondering if this is even possible to do once I am comfortable with modding and am able to do advance object modding.

It would involve a scripting mod for sure, and a custom jazz and animations. Would be a load of work. I would focus on the script first and jazz. I would start with a script that checks if a sim is in a swimsuit and if they aren't to change into it. Then run the animation. Then somehow find a code for getting in the pool and combine it all together. I can tell you that you can use the Shower script file that EAxis made to see how they change from going to one outfit to the other. You might be able to get the pool part by finding code for swimming pools and browsing through that.
I'm pretty sure most of it is doable, though not sure about the pool part.

Thanks for the response.
I will not be able to get to this project until I know more about object animations and modding. Still, it is something I feel is missing in the Sims 3 games and hopefully I will be able to learn how to do this eventually.
