Thank you. Please let me know how it goes in your game! I'm keen to know that it all works the way it's supposed to :)

Can you upload also a Library file ? :D  It's more easy to put in-game.

The file is usually shared from Edit Town , so it should show up into your library of Lots or Community Lots . So I thought . I myself , don't know of any other way of saving or sharing those files . I'm curious to know how it's done as well .  :)

Beautiful! What town did you create it in, and what is the rough placement?

Thanks. I created this in Island Paradise and kinda just placed a 64x64 lot anywhere lol. I didn't really think about where I placed it. Just somewhere away from other diving spots.

Simple. Everytime you make a lot and save/copy it , the lot will be stored in Edit Town. Also after you exit the game, you will find the last saved item in the Library folder. (all of them are ebf_...package files , so you must sort them by modified to see what package is the most recent one. Ideal is to know exactly the time when you make a copy of the lot.  After you find the package file you can rename it to have a more accurate Library folder. )  That's all.

Oh gosh, there's quite a number of files in that folder and I've saved lots since then, so I have no idea which one this lot is. Sorry :(

They are a little annoying to place. I found the following instructions on another website. You can probably start from number 7.

    1. Enter Edit Town Mode

    2. Open the cheat box (CTRL + SHIFT + C)

    3. Testingcheatsenabled true

    4. Buydebug

    5. EnableLotLocking true

    6. Select Diving Spot and save it to the Bin

    7. Open a new game via the Main Menu

    8. Edit Town

    9. Place an empty lot into the water (World Editor)

    10. Set the lot type to Community > Diving Lot

    11. Lock the lot in its current state

    12. Save and quit to the main menu

    13. Go back into your game and voila!

Before you place the diving lot, first you must flatten lot.

When you place a diving spot in the water and flatten it, you have to add something to the lot, anything will do, a rock or grass or something, then save it.  Don't forget to add your diving flag also. :)

Nothing works! This is almost as frustrating as the 3rd Spider-Man movie!

Can this lot be placed in other ocean places, like off shore Sunset Valley?  Is the ocean deep enough?  I love the look of it Neashaleigh.
What?  Grannies can't play games?

I really don't know to be honest. This is the first time I've ever made a diving lot. I haven't even tried placing it elsewhere yet (I've not really been much in game to try).

Joria, I can guarantee that the diving spots are compatible with Sunset Valley.  The only maps that don't work are Twinbrook, Lunar Lakes and Riverview .

Thanks, Dan!  Now I can add that off of where Pier Fun O Won is going up!
