Hi there, all I did was translate the tutorial all credit goes to the original people who posted this tutorial which can be found here http://www.osimbr.net/home.php?new=4383

Step 1

Before you even enter your chosen world you must enter these three cheats.
testingcheatsenabled on
enablelotlocking on
buydebug

Step 2

In Edit town place a 64 by 64 lot as deep as you can into the ocean

Step 3

Change the lot type to community lot

Step 4

Change the type of lot to diving area

Step 5

Click on build/buy mode

Step 6

In build mode use the flatten lot tool

Step 7

Go down to the ground level and place some seaweed, you will find it in buydebug mode it will be under underwater objects. Everything will appear to be a matt blue colour when placed, but don't worry it will soon all be normal again.

Step 8

Return to edit town and demolish the lot only once

Step 9

Now reselect the lot as a diving area

Step 10

return back into build/buy mode

Step 11

Now you can decorate your lot with beautiful buydebug items from the underwater section.

Step 12

Don't forget to place the buoy to select the capability of diving skill the sim must have to dive there. To set the danger level simply hold control and shift in and click on the buoy to select the levels.

Step 13

Go back into edit town and add a name to your lot, once done click on the lock to lock the lot again.

Step 14

Now your lot is ready

That concludes their tutorial, they also linked to a video on youtube showing their lot in action here http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=hsZ8ogD5jwo

I hope this helps those of you who can't translate the page, remember I only did translating I take no credit for this tutorial

    Thank you so much.

    I don't have the game yet, but have bookmarked this ready for when it arrives.

    What I'd like to know is - didn't a simguru say this wasn't possible to do? Cos I'm baffled why they would tell us that since it clearly is possible.

    Thank you for the translation and I will be testing this, soon as my download completes.
    Nothing to see. I don't even care about the forums.

    That would be good, would you mind giving me the correct lot name then, then I can edit my original post, the game is only releasing in New Zealand on Friday for me :wink:

    I can see in the pic at step 1 that they typed enablelotlocking on but I have just googled it and everything I come up with says enablelotlocking true and false not on and off, so I would suggest if you guys get an error there that you just use true instead of on :wink: and the same with testingcheatsenabled on, I would use true instead, mind you if they used it and it worked, just try it that way first :mrgreen:

    edit: I am loading my game now to see whether both cheats work will brb

    It worked, well you learn something new everyday. So you can use either on or true, both will work :mrgreen:

    :shock:

    That's awesome! I've thought we couldn't for a while now but this is great! After Isla Paradiso has been fully explored I'll go back to Dragon Valley and make some dive lots there and keep playing forever... :mrgreen: Unless an even better world comes along.

    Thanks for the translation...but why did they say that dive lots are exclusive to the town that comes with IP ?
    It's not because of the cheats since festival lots are made using cheats and they even made a tutorial :-/ Maybe it causes problems?(besides the usuual risk of using cheats)I hope a guru gives us an answer cause I would really like diving lots in other towns

    the problem that I am having is that I can not zoom in all the way once I have done all of these steps....is anyone else having this problem?

    I am having that problem too poshiepie. I am using a custom world, but I might need a camera mod too.

    Just to let you know Mcrudd, the label of the lot is Diving Area.
    Nothing to see. I don't even care about the forums.
