Creating your own Splash Pad

Growing Together ultimately gives you the foundations when creating your own splash pad. If you own other packs, you unlock even more building possibilities.

However, it’s not just the range of objects additions packs give you. While this does give you more scope with how you build, what about lot types and locations? How big do you want your splash pad to be? Do your Sims only have a small amount of space to utilize? With multiple questions, it does get you thinking!

Here are a few ideas for when you are creating your own Splash Pads:

  • Location – Any world would be perfect to add a Splash Pad to. However, what about one in Sulani, Tartosa, or Oasis Springs?
  • Lot Types – Chose from a variety of lot types including a Pool, Park, and even a Recreation Center, and incorporate a Splash Pad into your build!
  • Lot Traits – Add lot traits to your Splash Pad Lots! Childs Play will allow your Child Sims to build their skills quicker whereas Bracing Breezes will create a more enjoyable atmosphere to exercise in.
  • Objects – There are plenty of objects you can use to make the ultimate Splash Pad! Take the various loungers that can be used in pools as well as seating options, play equipment, and more!

Community Creations using Growing Together

Now, we all know that our community is incredibly talented. Whether that is creating stories, Sims, or builds for the game. One build in particular that caught our attention recently is from Kate Emerald.

While Kate does use the T.O.O.L mod by TwistedMexi to create the build, the build overall is completely free of custom content. The only content it uses is already available in The Sims 4!

This incredibly detailed waterpark is the perfect place for Sims to hang out and chill as well as have some fun!
