I have already made a post elsewhere on this but I was told it would be a good idea to post it in this section to see if anyone would help me.

Here it is

I was wanting to create atlantis in the bahamas but it might be abit of a challenge seen as I am no good at creating large buildings. Heres some pics of what i mean:

One of the waterslides (note how it goes through a clear tunnel underwater, anyway of doing this on a waterslide?)

Overview (note as simple as it seems, as many underground parts and many pools)

Has anyone found a way of getting fish, i would like to put some in the water (not by building an aqaurium)

If anyone would like to help me build this then I would greatly aprreciate it although i am still wondering if doing it is a good idea. Also I dont know if it would be easier to make the hotel piece by piece because there is no theme like that. If anyone would be helpfull enough to create a theme like this, or to build the hotel as one piece of scenery then that would be great. Please let me know.

It's very rare for fish to come in the pond.
They disapear after a while. You can't "Place" fish
in the water it's not like scenery. :bulb:

I stayed there!!! Last summer we stayed there for vacation! I could provide advice for the inside... a little, we walked through half of it and our legs were killing us... I could also help with the water park there too. Let me know if you need anything! I'm here to help!

If you make a pond you begin to get small lake fish. A little deeper and you get schools. Deeper yet and you start to get larger fresh water fish.

If you make a larger body of water and its pretty spread out and like 10 feet or more deep, you start to get sea type fish. Larger still and you get sharks swimming around.

One strategy might be to place an aquarium under water than build your underwater paths.

I had a bash, the mayan temple slides are hard to do cz its hard to fit them inside the temple and it is quite hard to do the aquarium...which is like the hole place. nw im bk from france i might have a bit more time and might give it a try seen as i can get pics now

Aquariums should be easy. I'm not sure what you are trying to do with them, but this should work.

1. Make a tunnel on the outside edge of a block of land. (to where you can see the whole path)

2. Block it all off with glass walls. (black glass works best)

3. Fill it with water.



Hope that helps. Take a look at my park for refrence to what I mean.
