Making a pool under an arched bridge.

Post by xCharlieee on Sun 04 Aug 2013, 18:55

Hello,

I know this thread belongs in the 'Tips/tricks' section, but i am not able to make a new thread there. (I get an error 'only granted members can make a new thread' or something like that.

Well, i saw a workshop where they learn you how to make an arched bridge with a swimming pool under it.
I know now how to make an arched bridge, but when i' want to place a pool under it, they can do it, but i don't.
I get a message in the game that says 'can't expand/extend pool here.'

How do i make a pool under my bridge?

I'm so frustrated, almost tried anything. Facepalm Shocked

Somebody that can help?

Thanks!

I think the ground has to be leveled below...
Oh, and there's a limit: you can't build the pool nearer than one tile away from the base of the bridge...

Take a look here.
For the leveling part, go to ground tools, then click the one with two arrows pointing towards the same line.

Hello,

In "Build Mode", there are terrain tools for you to level the ground.

Hello.

First, thanks for both your replies.

I had a look at Shamrock's page he added in his reply, but i don't understand what's beneath that page, (the thingy with C & CTRL and stuff), just doesn't work for me.. Sad

I understand what you mean with the ground tool, but do i have too level the ground UP, or DOWN?

Thankyou!

Hello,

There is a function in the tool for you to flatten the ground. Although it's a bit onerous, you can always give it a try.

You need the cheatcodes to make it work.
Is this what you have problem with?

I understand, and yes i am aware of the cheatcodes that i have to use for it.
Only problem is,

This 'Next you need to hold down CTRL & at the same time drag from a corner of the existing pool, with the pool tool, out and under the bridge.
Let go of the mouse button, but DONT move the mouse!
Let go of CTRL....
Then click once with the mouse.....'

That is written in the workshop you posted before shamrock, isn't working for me.

I almost tried 30 minutes to try what they have written, but it still doesn't do anything.

Don't use this one.
Follow the steps in the first post at the top. I can guarantee it works fine: I did it! Wink
