This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
************** UP-DATED Swimming with Dolphins ***************

The problems are fixed and tested in game, due to the fine support of bvmiles.
During rebuilding the fireplace has been removed so if your Sim needs the cosyness of a warm fire, you have to install it yourself.

It is important to mention the use of NUMENOR'S WALL HACK in this house.
This great tool made it possible for me to add walls even when it becomes tricky. Thank you Numenor for this great job.

The lightning and gardening have slenderd a little bit but still very nice.

The price of the lot as in the rar-file is 83.348,- Simmoleans


Swimming with Dolphins

A Sims dream, swimming with dolphins, has come true.

This multi split-level beach house, has a panoramic view over the sea as far as the eye can see. Several spacious decks invite your Sims to relax and enjoy the view.
Stairs lead your Sims safely through the rough rocky landscape of their own backyard to their private sea-front.
If they wish, there is the opportunity to take a refreshing dive in the sea and maybe the dolphins will accompany them.

Terrain paint:
To make the landscape as realistic as possible I used lots of terrainpaint from all over the web. I can’t thank them all by person because the lack of information. Anyhow thank you all for the effort you did put in making these great ground coverings.
Most of them come from:
www.sterlingsims2.com, www.aussietopenders.com, www.tribeccasims.com


Because of the size of the package this house comes unfurnished.

Enjoy decorating and simming.

What a stunning piece of architecture! Beautiful work, ambron. I've always wanted to swim with dolphins, so now maybe my sims can and I'll just live vicariously like I usually do.

THANK YOU! And Congrats on Featured status!
Always,
Emma

PS: Is there any way you can either post or send the shopping list of the furniture? Some of those things are just too cute! Thanks in advance!

Damn, I wish I lived here.The house has been beautifully landscaped, and I have to say your furnishing skills are top-notch!

Can we really get the dolphins here? I did a search just then and there were definetley no Dolphins to swim with.

My little sister is going to love this! She doesn't play the sims2 (God forbid!) but her room is so heavily decorated with Dolphins.

Congrats on being featured!
