Summer Sports and Recreation
Beaches, Pools, and Terrains
Simple Sand Prop || The Sea 2010 Morphing Sand Props || Shoreline Backdrop || AX Beach #01 / #02 || Beach Environment || Beacon Beach Pier || Basic Room and Pool || Guderun Pool #01 / #02 || BionicRooster Pool #01 / #02 / #03 || Most Digital Creations Pool #01 / #02 / #03 || Kiddie Pool || Private Beach || Morphing Ground Prop 2 || The Hills || Morphing Snow Terrain || Posable Palm Tree || Palm Trees from Tree Set ||
Notes: The Private Beach set comes with the pool and all accessories shown; it’s intended for use with the Sunny Backyard scene. The Morphing Ground Prop 2 set has river, pond, and shore presets. Add a sand textures to the morphing snow terrain for dunes, or to retexture any of the beach props — and sand castles to match.
Beach, Pool, Boardwalk, and Park Props
Beach House || Lifeguard Station #01 || Lifeguard Station #02 || Walkway/Boardwalk || || Promenade || Seawall/Dike || Mike’s Tiki Bar || Beach Bar || Big Booth || Small Booth || The Stand || Coffee Shop || Set Pizzeria || Gazebo/Booth || Rest Oasis || Concrete Bench || Park Bench || Public Bench || Public Trash Bin #01 / #02 / #03 || Theme Park Props || Sign Board || Simple Wood Sign || Beach Signs || Dunking Pool || Beach Shack || Victorian Bathing Hut (DS4 only)
Notes: The Beach House would make a nice seaside/lakeside restaurant. The non-English Beach Bar signs look easy enough to retexture. I used the Tiki Bar in this post and have DS3 mats for it. The Victorian Bathing Hut is DS4 only, although the Beach Shack is similar. I bought Skip1871’s Summer Beaches awhile ago but it’s no longer for sale. It doesn’t hurt any to ask the vendor if they’d be willing to sell it privately; they are of course free to decline.
Beach Props || Lifeguard Float Prop || Beach Umbrella || Sunscreen || Big Towel || Summer Towels || Vila’s Mat and Towel || CD Player || CD and Case || Beach Bag || Cooler || Picnic Basket || Beach Toys and Props || Lounge Chair || Stars-n-Stripes Beachball || Beachball Prop || Air Mattress || Pool Couch || Watertube ||
Swimrings || Vila’s Tire Tubes || Bath Ducky || Devil Duk || Rubber Duck || Props from Sadie & Sam Swim || Air Bubbles || Sand Castle prop || Sand Pail and Shovel
Notes: Vila’s props work fine with other figures with scaling adjustments — I used one of the Tire Rings with M4 in this image. The props from Sadie/Sam Swim can be used with other figures, but best from a distance.
Beach, Pool, and Boardwalk Food
Water Bottle Props || Water Bottle || Large Soda Cans || Soda Can #01 || Soda Can #02 ||Plastic Cup || Pepsi Vending Machine || Vending Machine || Popcorn Machine || Popcorn || Ice Cream Tricycle (also at ShareCG) || Soft Serve #01 ||
Soft Serve #02 (CAUTION: Zip file reported to contain malware) || Soft Serve #03 || Soft Serve #04 || Ice Cream Cones || Frozen Treats || Sundae || Shakes & Ices || Pizza and Box
Notes: As noted on the download pages, the vending machine props are strictly non-commercial usage. Edited to add: The Ice Cream Tricycle has conflicting TOU depending on where you download it from. If you plan on using it for commercial purposes, it’s probably a good idea to check with Papus3d about this.
Beach/Summer Sports and Activities
Surfboard #01 || Surfboard #02 || Surfboard #02 textures || Surfboard with car top mount || Rowboat || Little Boat || Barrel Pontoon || Pontoon Raft || Jetty || Pier || Landing Stage || Fishing Props #01 / #02 / #03 / #04 || Volleyball || Frisbee || Kite || Hang Glider || Basketball || Basketball Hoop || Soccer Ball #01 || Soccer Ball #02 || Tennis Court #01 || Tennis Court #02 || Skater Park || Skateboard || Toon Boy Sam Skateboard
Notes: The Surfboard #02 prop is also at Content Paradise. Its add-on textures are mc6 files, which don’t work in DS and will have to be added manually. The Pontoon Raft is an old obj prop; it has material zones but isn’t really suited for closeups. No free beach volleyball sets — DAZ sells one here and Rendo has a more elaborate one — but it might be possible to adapt the TC Tennis Court net. There’s a net in BionicRooster’s Pool Set, as well as a basketball backboard and net that could be adapted for non-pool use. The Skaterbahn comes with a skateboard prop. Sam’s skateboard can be scaled to use for other figures.
Critters to Put In/On the Water
Notes: As it says at the download page, the Beach Creatures aren’t intended for closeups. The fishtail and fish are static props; the shark, ira kanji, and birds have movement morphs. I couldn’t find much in the way of fish, though your Poser/DAZ people can always catch the DAZ Bass.
Misc Stuff and Poses
Notes: Hobobob has many, many sand materials (I also have a couple freebie Filter Forge sand textures here.) The V4 Extreme poses could be adapted for surfboard use, but there are also a lot of inexpensive surfing pose sets for sale at DAZ, Renderosity, and RDNA. Check Skylab’s Gallery for several M4 basketball poses.
