Thank you to kaciestar for pointing us to this group of photos. This is a challenge just for fun to see what we can do using these photos as inspiration. You can build as residential or community and do as many lots as you want to do.

I have copied about 10 of my fave photos and want to see what I can do using them for some ideas. Let's have some fun and see what we can do to give our sims some wonderful places to cool down this summer.

Smile

It's Summer! Let's Build Some Pools! 351549032 My Sims are often deprived of a pool. It's Summer! Let's Build Some Pools! 828793291 Perhaps I can rethink that idea.

Great! It will be fun to see what you do. I cannot decide yet what I want to try first. Smile

I love the infinity pool. Often considered doing one in Sims 3.

Well, here is your chance to do one or a few. Smile

I remember doing some glass wall pool tutes in 2 and did a few somewhat different things. It is nice that we now can place windows in pool walls and supposedly put them on higher levels, right? I think it will be fun to see what we all can come up with for this.

Smile

I love this pic. It is too bad that my modern Xterra is totally flat so cannot even try anything there. I need to find a place where I can play with this idea a bit.

edit: Thanks, Dini! Smile

I know the feeling! We all have such long Sims "to do" lists! I am sure your sims want a cool pool or 2 as a top priority. Smile

It is starting to get hot enough here that I could use one now. 99 yesterday.

Fantastic!

We can all thank kaciestar for this. Hope she will do one or a few too.

Smile

I was wondering if that lot on the point in SV would be a good place, especially if the lot could be nuked and one placed there that drops down the hill a bit, unless EA has the routing too tight there. Those lots up on Will Wright might be interesting to use, or where Agnes lives. It is too bad that I do not play SV though.

hmm

Playing a bit on Wright Way. We are going to be able to do some cool things, I think!

I think we will be able to do some fun things. It is great that we now can do a pool on a foundation. I have never tried that before.

Wow daisy - That sure does look cool. I will have to try out the Foundation pool. Were there any tricks you need to do ? When you do another maybe you could take pics as you go to show. Cool

It took no cheats or tricks at all as I recall. We can now put a pool right up to the edge of a foundation. I expected that there would have to be one tile, but no. I then just colored the walls to look like water. I do not play SV so will not work on this, but want to see what is like on a level lot with a foundation next. And I also want to see what can be done in a highrise.

Smile

One thing I did that was cool too was put an aquarium window in the outside wall. That is an idea to play with also.

Maybe you could also put windows in the walls so you could see people svimming up there on 10th floor Smile

It is neat that we can do windows in pools now. I did not take a pic with the aquarium as not building that lot. But will, if I do one that I am keeping.

If we cannot have a great pool in RL, at least our sims can have one! You should build something and see what you can come up with.

Honestly I haven't played The Sims 3 in so long - I doubt I could do something like that - that looks so neat! I have problems building things now lol I went to make a heart shaped pool last week and had to google how to do it because I couldn't figure it out and by the time I did - it was bed time lol!!!
