@IceDemon625 What do you expect the dock here to do ? For me they parked the aqua zip right where the pole is and then got in the water and climbed the ladder.

If the boat is already on the same lot, they kinda just leave where they stand but maybe if it's the lot, that's how it's supposed to be ?

@crinrict I thought they would park the boat by the pole, like you said. When my sims do it, they just leave the boat and go home. Maybe there's not enough room by the pole for them to park it? I'll try to post a video when I get the chance.

@IceDemon625 Could you also test lot vs not on lot ?

Are there other boats there ?

@crinrict They have the conservationist canoe and an aqua-zip. I have a small square dock with a docking spot on each side. I'll add a docking spot to another lot and have a sim try to park both the boat and the aqua-zip on it.

(view in My Videos)
This only seems to happen if the sim in the vehicle is close to their lot.  It happens with the canoe too.

The vehicle seems to go to whichever docking spot is closer, regardless of which one I told them to use.  The aqua-zip makes it onto the lot, but the boat doesn't.

Hopefully this is what you want.  I haven't done this before.  The save should be an elderly couple with a bunch of kids.
