Build Your Own Boat  
Four sizes of houseboat hulls converted from TS3.

They're all slaved to the 8x18 curved hull so don't delete that one. The helm/wheel is also included. You can find them all under misc/misc.

You can follow this guide for building over water, but you might have to raise the foundation a few clicks before you start if you don't want waves clipping through the floor, then just place enough floor tiles to cover whichever size of hull you want to use.

The easiest way to place the hull that I found was putting it on one of these underground OMSPs, using the 'setquartertileplacement on' cheat, placing it over the first floor of the "ship," and shifting it around until it aligns with the floor tiles.

Now someone just needs to build MacGyver's houseboat. :D

These are so cool. I can't wait to make a new 'hood full of beach lots and houseboats and watch my game explode!

No really. I'm excited about that. :D

Have fun! But why would your hood explode?

Oh, the old graphics card isn't fond of beach lots. I guess I could plop these down in deep ponds, couldn't I?
delonariel: en rosedelonariel on 29th November 2013 21:05 (UTC)
Absolutely! The larger sizes should work better in ponds anyway since you only have 10 slots of water to work with on beach lots unless you lower the terrain. I know there's a tutorial on MTS about making the hood water run onto lots so you can have a fake-sea, but I haven't had the chance to try it out yet.

Ooh, I'll have to check that out! I'm now envisioning a "swamp" hood full of boats! That would be awesome!

lj kept eating my comments yesterday and I was so excited to tell you how fantastic these look! Thank you for linking to mlc's tutorial and thank you for the tip about underground OMSPs and thank you especially for converting these houseboat hulls! And your preview pics are fantastic, so creative! I'm going to have so much fun playing with them :D

Thank you! That means a lot coming from you :D hope you have fun building.

Thanks for sharing.

These are AWESOME!

However, and this is definitely nothing to do with the actual house boat hulls but a word of caution, if you make the water of the beach bigger, you can't share the house boat because the water will revert to normal maxis' and your boat will be half on land as mine did! You've gotta plop it down and keep it there before you mess with the water. Also, if anyone does want to make their water larger, the beach slope is From the ground, -3 -5 - 8 clicks!

Hi Delonariel : I need help with the houseboat hulls. I think i need step by step instructions tried building the boathouse ended up pulling my hair at the end couldn't figure it out.I would appreciated instructions or kindly the houseboat lots download. Thank you so much.

Re: Houseboat
Hi, sorry I'm replying so late!

I haven't uploaded any lots due to the facts that lots can cause some problems in other people's hoods if you don't know how to clean them up right (which I don't) and because the houseboats are all on edited beach lots which wouldn't carry over very well.

The tutorial is a bit tricky, it might require you to have some experience in building with "boolprop constrainfloorelevation false" or it's easy to get turned around. Is it with building the pier or placing the hull that you're having problems with?
