Hello,

I have problems putting ponds on my lots... When I try to put a pond it
turns bright RED, I have absolutly no idea why, and if the lot, like a Maxis
one already has a pond it's fine....

ANY IDEAS?!?!

Thanx Rhiannon

This is usually a memory issue related to your video card - what's your
video card, what memory does it have and what's your system memory? It
might not be that - I think there are some people who's video cards just
have issues with the game but, anyway, it's a video problem.

Best wishes
Maxon

LOL!!! That would work quite well with the vampire in Nightlife!!

But I don't think it's a video card thing,. because I can see water on the
maxis lots with it already there... I dunno, oh and my mums computer has a
worse video card than mine and she can put in water....? i was gonna get
one of the new GeForce anyways... guess this settles it

It's not necessarily the power of the card that affects it although that is
important - some types of card seem to have problems rendering the water
too. When you say 'it's already there' so you mean that the Maxis lots with
water are already red? And, if that's the case, why shouldn't it be a video
card thing? In most cases, the blood ponds go when you get a better video
card - with more memory - also the red background to your family screens, if
you get them.
