Have you missed the undersea world of the Sims3? Do you wish your Sims and Mer-sims could have their own place to swim and dive deep into the ocean?

Mermaid Lake is more than just a park with a pretty lake, it contains the first ever Sims 4 "dive" spot located in the middle of the lake.
Now your Sims can swim, even stroll beneath the waters.
There is so much to explore beneath the waves, like watery corridors that lead to ancient ruins and a hidden cove. On the way, let your Sims enjoy the beauty of brightly colored corals, rock formations and tropical fish. Surrounded with the ocean on every side, even above, you will feel like you too were traveling in an underwater world filled with wonder and mystery.

You might even choose to live here. The ruins offer plenty of place for explorers or Mer-folk to build their own home in the deep.

Once you are done exploring the depths for the day, you might want to return to the surface where a spacious park, awaits, it's natural beauty a perfect setting for overnight campers. There's a place to barbecue with family and friends, play music, toast marshmallows by the fire or challenge someone to a game at the horseshoe toss. Don't forget Mermaid lake with its pristine waters where you can swim to your heart's content.

Above the surface or below, join in on the fun at Mermaid Lake!

Hi,
Everything is Base Game compatible so I don't think there should be a problem.
As for the CC question, you can download the lot without CC, but it won't look like the pictures as it wouldn't have any of the water effects (walls, floors or ceiling) corals or fish and other objects.

Unfortunately, for some reason this lot doesn't appear in the library even though the slot files are in the right place. Too bad, really wanted to try it out!

I cannot find mermaid lake anywhere. I was sure it was a new location but it isn't showing up. Everything is extracted to the right folder and my husband and I are both just baffled at what to do to fix this

**Edit - Snowhaze fixed my uber noob problem lol. I didn't realize I had to show advance and place the lot from the library ^_^

Why does this show up when I have "CC: none" selected under filters when it's got lots of CC?

My lots and sims show up as if they'd require cc, even if they don't.
I guess it's pretty common, my friends have it too. ^^'
