The Sims 4: Pools & How They Work

What’s coming for pools in The Sims 4? Well they’re purely awesome and work very similar to past games, being able to be placed on the ground, upper levels, and within foundations. Here’s all we know about pools below!

What’s Coming

  • Pools in The Sims 4 make use of the new rooms function present when you’re building a house. You can just as easily manipulate and move your pool around by simply dragging the arrows, just like the walls.
  • Pool depths are now possible and work just like wall heights! You can have a normal pool depth, medium depth, or scary deep pool for Sims to splash around in.
  • If you put the pool in the wrong spot or later decide you want to move it around to give your Sims backyard a revamp, you can pick up the entire pool (also just like rooms and the entire house) and move it easily.
  • You’ll have a variety of pools shapes to choose from normal square, diagonal, and octagonal. There are no rounded pools.
  • While there are no slides or diving boards for pools just yet in The Sims 4, Sims will use them just as you’d expect. They can jump right in, or climb right out – with or without a ladder.
  • You can have pool lights on the wall and floor of the pool and they can also be freely moved around and even given different emitting colors (like wall lights).
  • Fencing can be put up right to the edge of pools.
  • Pool ladders (even though not required) can now be placed on a diagonal pool piece.
  • You can have rooftop pools – they can be on any level of your home. This includes within foundations too!
  • There are some new pool wallpapers and floor styles.
  • There’s a new pool themed gnome too.
  • You cannot put other objects (plants) in the pool, you can place lily pads on them though!

Sims And Pools

  • There is a new death associated with drowning and a new ghost. The ghost will be blue and could leave puddles around.
  • Though sad, children Sims can also die by drowning.
  • There’s new Create A Sim clothing including swimsuits with lots of choices and styles.
  • There are new Styled Looks for swimsuits too!
  • If you want your Sims to wear any outfit for swimming, just remove the filter of Swimwear in Create A Sim to access all outfits.
  • There are no pool games like “Hold Breath Contest” (The Sims 3) but Sims can be coached and Learn to Swim.
  • Sims can have a bladder failure in the pool and it reveals a surprising result. (You’ll have to see for yourself.. it’s hilarious!)
  • There are no differences in how a Sim will enter the pool based on their current Emotion. They just jump in, or climb out.
  • There are interactions that relate to Emotions however. If a Sim is sad they can swim around sadly or if happy/playful can swim around playfully.
  • Sims can splash each other.
  • Sims can sit on the edges of pools and socialize, splash, and more. They’ll also talk when near each other in the pool.
  • Sims can swim laps (when directed) and they’ll swim around. They can be directed to one spot with “Swim Here” interaction.
