    I still think my way is easier to export a diving areas to other maps. Link is here http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/689246.page

    Did anybody succeed in this way ? Please tell me

    Nice. This will be great for legacies that aren't in Isla Paradiso.

    Not sure why they said it was only exclusive to Isla Paradiso. There could be problems when placed in other worlds, so only time will tell.

    I would never take credit for something I did not do, and thank you so much for discovering how to do it, I am sure to ask you questions once I get my game on Friday :)

    This is great info

    btw,

    i have a question:

    do you have to add treasure chest/ kraken cave or do they auto place themself randomly when you dive?
    Completed: All worlds
    Need: 2 more venues

    Current Collections working on from Sims 3 store:

    Futureshock Living -12/21

    The Jazz Age Wear- 11/20

    My list is fine tuned to what i really what, which is on my wishlist.

    My thank you list to all those who have gifted me!

    I only get my game on Friday, but if you look closely at step 7's picture there seems to be some caves of some sort in buydebug, so just try placing those. :wink:

    Quick Question. Will mermaids or sharks spawn when you make your own dive lots as well? Or do they only spawn in IP dive lots? Has anyone encountered a mermaid or shark after building a dive lot in another world?

    I just added my first lot to a custom world. I hope it works. Diving shouldn't be exclusive to one world with so many other places, but we shall see.


    Well I just finished and my sim would not dive on the lot , swim near it, or boat there. Anyone have any tips?

    There are shark spawners in the buydebug (as well as other spawners). There isn't a mermaid spawner but they still show up. I have a mermaid every time I dive in the lot I made... I'm not sure if that's because I loaded it with all the sealife spawners and I planted some kelp. But yeah, they'll still appear.

    Oh wow, thanks for translating! This is great, now I can just follow the tutorial instead of trying to figure it out myself. I'm all excited now. :lol:

    There's a chance the Gurus said that dive lots weren't possible in other worlds to avoid having players mess up their games. From the sound of it, building a dive lot is complicated. They could have been trying to prevent problems. Some players refuse to take responsibility for the things they do. So if some player messes with dive lots and somehow causes routing issues or other problems, the player can't blame the company for their game being messed up. It's one of those do-at-your-own-risk things. (I'm just guessing though, I'm definitely not inside the loop of official info lol.)

    Awesome tutorial! It's build on a slope, but I built a diving lot in Al Simhara with it!

    I just asked a similar question,the only difference is I'm trying to move a sunlit tides family to the new world that came with paradise island because I didn't want to start all over and have to create a new family. I might try this instead until my question gets answered. Thanks for this info. :)

    No tips, but I'm having the same problem in my custom world. I followed all the steps, the lot looks great, the buoy is floating nicely on the surface, but any actions I try to do on the lot just get cancelled out. I made her swim right up to edge of the lot, but she won't swim onto the lot itself, or do anything else there. Just to be clear, I have the options to scuba dive, snorkel, swim, boat, etc, when I click on the surface of the water, but when I select them,they just get cancelled out, and my sim won't go onto the lot.

    Kira.. Check out this link: http://simsvip.com/2013/06/25/moving-placing-dive-spots-in-other-worlds/#respond-sys. Keep in mind that I used EA lots from Paradiso and just placed them in my bin. I was able to put the beginning dive lot in a custom world and edit the lot as well. You have to lock the lot, save, go to main menu, and reload the neighborhood. After that mine work!! Takes a bit, but it worked.

    Unfortunately, I think the ocean in my custom world is too shallow. When I try to place that dive lot from Isla Paradiso, when I come back after going to the main menu,the lot itself looks good and is underwater and everything, but the marker flag and sharks are way above the surface of the water, and I still can't get onto to lot. When I try to make my own lot with the tutorial in this thread, the marker will sit on the surface when I first place it, but when I go to the main menu and back again, it is high up in the air as well, and the lot is still unusable.
