Indoor diving platform question... SOLVED!!.

Elegantblkchina1Elegantblkchina1 Posts: 103 Member
So I feel like I'm the only one that doesn't know how to put a diving platform in my basement pool since I can't seem to find any threads at all on this. I feel like I should be able to do this task simply since the Harbor Quarter Gym in Windenberg has one in the basement. I have even studied the one at the gym to see if I was missing something.
When I try to install the platform I keep getting an error message about intersecting objects, but there is LITERALLY NOTHING around the pool. I even tried raising the wall level. NOTHING! The platform stays red.
Can someone please please help??

    It might be because of the ceiling. It may not be high enough for the Sims to perform the dives. Try using the cheat bb.moveobjects.

    I thought the same thing except my ceiling is higher than the one at the gym. I try to avoid cheats if possible, but I may have no choice in this matter. Thanks!

    I just changed the ceiling height in my basement and it worked. Maybe the gym ceiling is higher than you think or maybe the game mechanics read the basement height differently. In any event raising the ceiling does work.


    Edit: I checked and my ceiling height is set to the highest.

    Can you make sure it's not near any foundation or stairs that could be upstairs on the ground level?

    @JasonAnthonySterling, I'll check again, maybe it's at the middle level instead of the highest. Thanks!

    @DeKay, nope nothing is near it. I put it in first without anything around to make sure it didn't intersect with anything. Thanks for replying!

    Make sure there aren't any lights above either. I had an issue the other night placing one of the new closets in a build, because a ceiling light was in front of it. Not in the same space. In front. I guess where the Sim would first walk up to it (though the light is higher than the Sim anyway so it shouldn't matter, lol).
    Live, laugh and love. Life's too short not to.

    OP, can you try to take screenshot of the top floor and the basement pool floor so we can take a look at it?

    Post your pics to imgur.com and paste the URL links here without the "http://" or put spaces in between.

    @DeKay, later this evening I'm going to see if I can raise the ceiling again and if that doesn't work then I'll send a screenshot of the area. Fingers crossed!
    Wow, everyone is so helpful! I've been playing since Sims 1 and I've never been in this situation of something not working out. So this is my first experience getting help. It's greatly appreciated!

    Yes, make sure it's at the highest wall. And make sure it's the basement wall that you're clicking and not the the top floor.

    And you're very welcome!
