Testers Wanted: Diving Competition

This is another early version of something I'm working on.

This current version is just very basic, in that it just gets two sims to dive together.

For it to work you need two diving boards. The object is a clone of the pink flamingo (this will be changed in later versions.) Just place it somewhere near to the pool and then get a sim to select the "Diving competition" option on it. (you`ll find this clone with the other pink flamingo(s) in the decorations section, it`s called the diving competition judge)

Known problems/issues:
*Sometimes the timing on the pair diving is off by a few seconds.(depending on the route each sim takes to the diving boards etc)
* The sim which will join the one you use to start the competition, will currently always be the first member of the family. (other than when you start the competition with that first sim)

Some of the features I`m working on:
*Scoring and there being a winner
*More than 2 sims being able to take part
*Using either single or multiple diving boards.
*Spectators.
*Selecting which other sims you want to compete in the competition.
*Winning/losing has a effect on motives and creates memories.

I`m also playing around to see if I can get them to be able to jump/dive in the pool without using the diving boards. Plus just in general seeing what I can do to add objects/features/games with can be used in the pool.

Note:see the posts below for more pool objects.
