Limitless Pool Designs!

Infinity pools are swimming pools with water flowing over the edges on at least one side. From a swimmer’s point of view, it looks like an endless body of water with a gorgeous view on the other side. With its sleek cutting-edge design, it can be a luxurious addition to any residential or pool lot.

The best part is you’ll only need Base game for any infinity pool you wanna make!

As usual, make sure your ‘bb.moveobjects’ cheat is on.

First off, build a pool on the upper floor. This trick will only work if your pool is surrounded by walls and is treated as a separate room. Note that this is absolutely different and new compared to the invisible foundation hack that you use on swimming pools on the ground floor or on the basement. With above-ground pools, you can make multi-level pools with water cascading from top to bottom.

To make a side seamlessly transparent, place and size down any window with the ‘[’ key. Now move it freely by holding Alt. This would make a hole in your pool wall that gives the appearance of a glass wall. Fill out a whole side or only a part of it with these sized-down windows until it suits you. 

You can opt to use shorter windows which gives an illusion of a shallow pool.

On the other hand, you can go all out on tall floor-to-ceiling windows for deeper and bigger pools that are perfect for your mega mansions and hotels. However, you may need the T.O.O.L. mod to minimize and hide the sized-down windows.

It’s optional to add the Smooth Keeper low fence from Base game if you want to outline your pool. 

And that’s basically it! Just decorate and let your Sim swim away to infinity and beyond.
