Sims 3 Lot Download: Mermaid's Den (Diving Spot)

Mermaid's Den is a Sims 3 diving spot which I built nearly two years ago.As I still love to play Sims 3,I decided to make this lot available for simmers who still enjoy Sims 3.I built it in Sunlit Tides but you can place it in any Sims 3 worlds following the instructions given at the end of this post.Besides the underwater beauty,this diving spot has two caves to explore and two treasure chests. I've placed almost all types of sea-life spawners on this lot.So,it's full of sea-life and sharks too.

***Your Sims need level 2 of scuba diving skill to dive into this spot.
***You need to have Sims 3 Island Paradise Expansion Pack for this diving spot to work.This lot also requires Showtime and Supernatural expansion packs for some decorative statues I used on it.However if you don't have Showtime and Supernatural expansion packs,the lot will still work but you'll see those decorative items missing.

Install Instructions:

Placing an exported diving spot and getting it to be fully working is a very sensitive task.If you choose a wrong lot to place it,your sim can't use it.So please,read carefully the instructions below:

  • After downloading extract the downloaded zip file.Install the .sims3pack file inside the extracted folder via the Sims 3 launcher.
  • Go to Edit Town mode and first enter these three cheats:
               1st: testingcheatsenabled true

                   2nd: buydebug or buydebug on
                     3rd: enablelotlocking true
      • Now place a 40×40 sized empty lot on the darker colored sea water surface using World Editor option in Edit Town mode.Diving Spot needs a deep sea level.In Sims 3 darker color of sea water represents deeper sea level. 
      • Then change the lot type to 'Diving area' under 'Community lot'.
      • Place my diving spot Mermaid's Den in that lot.
      • Now again check the lot type option after placing my lot and you will see it showing 'No visitor allowed'.So, change it again as 'Diving area'.
      • Go to live mode.You'll see some portion of the diving spot lot has raised above the water.Ignore it.Save your game and quit your game to main menu.Now reload your saved game and it will be fully functional.
      I tested this diving spot in a vanilla game with the above method and it worked.You can also place any exported diving spot with this method.

      I've been addicted to The Sims series games since the release of Sims 1.My all time favorite is Sims 3 though currently enjoying Sims 4.Besides playing the Sims 4 I love to create custom contents for it,in fact creating custom content for Sims 4 has become my new addiction.
