Default In-And-Out Invisible Pool Spot
UPDATE 3 :
Major change : Pet swimming !!! (only large dog)
But they can only use the pool spot (even autonomously to get out). If you put it out... I didn't tried it !

There are 3 files in the zip and you need them all. One of them are default semi globals, just so you know : pool semi globals ; idle dog system ; go here object (when you click on floor) -this one might be global but I don't think so-

You don't need the old files anymore, and they will conflict anyway.

Bug known (The last that I couldn't fix yet but that I hope to fix before february ends) :
After some time, the dog just loose the swim interaction in the queue, than instead of getting out the pool, it just stay in there stucked, idling (sitting or else) on top of water !!!
The bad news is that I have circled through the dog idle system and I can't seem to find how it works. As it doesn't through a error, it is harder to find how to fix it. When I forced error I don't get the infos I need to understand how it works...
If at least I could narrow the events that cause it.... (I already note that when the dog want to dig a hole, it normally gets out of pool, as intended)


UPDATE 2 :
Change the price because of environement rating
added an interaction "go near water" as if you could click on the floor

UPDATE 1 : the last change made had created another bug, sorry for that. Now this version has not anymore the "get out" bug because sims will be shooed out. However, I gave up on the body skill. Animations are the same either for skilled or not skilled sims.


I've made a modded object for Leefish web site. It's an invisible 2 tiles object to get in and out of the swimming pool without the need of ladder nor diving board. However I have improved it before posting it here and I would like to know what is your thinking about it.


What I would like to know is :

- Is the upload text below is alright ?
- Does your sim ever get in the pool autonomously by the tile eventhough there's a diving board ?
- Is there still a bug ?
-does the "go near water" works fine for flying vampire, walking toddlers and pet ?
-Is there bugs with pet using it ?
-in which occasions, the pet loose the interaction swim in the queue, without getting out of pool ?
-do you think animations are good enough ?
-I'll appreciate some pictures because I'm too tired to make some myself

Wow....This is great.
About the text, you forgot the p for pool, under known Issues.
You might want to add s's every time you used pool tile and blue tile, when plural...then again, my mother tongue is french, not English, so what do I know?
I can't wait to try this!!!!

French as well, so I've read it again (for XX time !). Thanks for the tip.
Hope you'll tell me what you get after your testing.

This is COOL. And you even included a way for me to take it out so my serial killer Sim can drown victims!

I speak a form of English (american), and it reads fine. Maybe use "taken out" instead of "put out", but people will understand it either way.

Only thing I can think of is perhaps you could include a little picture of the 'go here', 'enter', and 'options' menus that pop up when you click? I kinda got confused about which was which.

Sorry to disappoint you, but taking out the color (meaning make it invisible) won't disable the interaction and your sims will still be able to use it autonomously...
But you can still remove it in buy mode and they'll certainly die in a bad way

Hee hee. I meant I could turn it blue and find it to remove, I think. Something in your text reassured me that it wasn't stuck permanently on the lot.

Thanks eager to have your feedbacks .
I didn't say that the dog keep on idle sitting, while in water !!!, but I can't seem to find how it works. As it doesn't through a error, it isn't much a problem for now (even though it really breaks the illusion ). However for the same reason, it is harder to find how to fix it. If you success to get a useful error .txt , I'll take it gladly !
Or if you could understand what is the event that indues that ...

As you said, it does not throw any errors, so there is nothing to look into. What I wonder is..why does a dog decides to idle, instead of just getting out of the pool?
And, do you absolutely need the dog idle in your package?
The idle animation is chosen when nothing else is happening no? What should be happening is get out of pool.
I ask..but I did not try it yet.

yes it is exactly that, but as it does it autonomously for doing another interaction (go here, dig here, ...), however in some case, the interaction disappear without any reason. Then, the dog isn't considering swiming anymore even though in pool, so it idles on floor level.
What I don't understand is why the interaction ends in the first place and why then it doesn't get out of pool even thogh to do nothing.
I really think it is in the idle process, as swimming is an iddling action (it's the reason why I had to default some dog idle system BHAV) push by the pool globals, that are triggered either by the pool spot itself (if you have clicked on it) either through the go there then the pool spot itself (if you have clicked on pool "enter"). It's 2 different BHAV but I tried to make them as same as I could. Edit: either way the swim idle interaction is in runed by the pool controller (created by the pool spot, ladder, enter pool and co). Perhaps it is deleted at some time for some reason ? I'll go check.
I have noted too that once in pool pet can't anymore click on pool "swim here". It's a sub interaction that sim can do. Does it do that for you too ? (you'll answer me when you'l have tested it.)


EDIT !!! : Ok I understand now. Was fidling in the swim here interaction and found that it is not a bug. So I just get a sim in pool to see exactly what it does (should have done it sooner because when playing, I wasn't attentive enough)
So I does it for sims too : the swim interaction disappear. But then the idle and go here take place. There must be somewhere something that I miss, that test the "Is swiming or in pool". I must add the test for pet too. It is just a matter to find WHERE to add it.

Got it. I'm taking a little break from modding for a week or two, so I'll install it tonight and give it a good workout. (After all this cold weather, I could use a few days in the pool)

Ok, thanks !
About that bug, I know now where is the bug. It's in petglobals 'Function - Process Autonomy'.
And how to fix it too 'Force - get out of pool' global.
However I'm trying to find a way to test which interaction must be disabled... Because I can't stop autonomy for pets, they'll die in pool !
