View Full Version : Help with Scenery and Pools

I could have sworn I saw a thread (or at least a comment IN a thread) about placing scenery on Pool decks. But I've spent the better part of an hour searching the forum for where I might have seen that, and can't find it.

I played around with this last night, and was only successful in getting my "steel drum band" to "float" above the pool deck. :(

So, is it possible to get scenery to sit on the pool deck or not? If so, how?

(I plan on deleting some of the decking to make little "planters" but still want to place a tiki hut on the deck).

You need to edit the ground below where the pool will go using the 'free-hand' terrain tool (as opposed to the snap to ride height) first to raise it up a tiny bit, then place your pool. The scenery should set to the ground level if you gor it just right.

I will have to give that a try - thanks for the idea.

That works, but another easy way for me to do it, is, I like to take the terrain painter tool, minimize it to 1 square and paint it with the paint that looks like the pool level, I think it's called Offset Tile, but I'm not exactly sure.
