does anyone know how to build a swimming pool upstairs like on a roof? i am at the moment building a cruise ship (was inspired by watching titanic last night) and want to put a swimming pool on the back of one of the upper decks like real cruise ships have. anyone got any ideas how to do this?
thanks in advance for any help anyone can give me on this
i am just doing upstairs pools since I found out how. you need a dummy level. then, wall the dummy level and the level below in the shape of the pool, tile the walls, open the floor above the dummy level in the pool area, fill the dummy level floor with rgiles's transparent blue floor tile and add diving boards and ladders to the level above dummy with moveobjects.
TYPE 2 (no default pool wall, mostly unbound to the ground, with "moveobjects on/off" & "boolprop constrainfloorelevation false/true" cheats)(Metranisome)
Creating pools on multiple floor levels [tutorial] http://www.modthesims2.com/showthread.php?t=83325
OK, I've prepared a picture guide, the first 2 pictures are for both, the next 2 are for with, then the next 6 are for without.
Remember to wallpaper and to have "moveobjects on" and boolprop constrainfloorelevation false activated. the pictures should speak for themselves.
EDIT: Crap, the order is scrambled.
I'll try to reorganize them soon.
so in your method, some essential points I've got so far.
1. there's no pool water except transparent tiles.
2. by means of compression of the second level to a 4 click high one to shorten the distance a sims has to travel to reach a lower level to swim. Simply because moveobects cheat enabled dive boards or ladders will normally draw sims to swim a level lower than where dive boards or ladders are located just like the beaches.
A big thank for your pictures! They've told me the most important things I need lately.
If you're interested to visit an another type of aerial/raised pool, too,
I find linking all these infos together, I'm getting much better picture for how to manipulate aerial pools by means of pool-tools... Tons of thanks to you all involved... Gonna experiment more now... Wow, there're already at least 3 types of aerial/rised pools...!
