Nicole Swimley (PR3)
|First Appearance||Platform Racing 2 (2008)|
|Latest Appearance||Creation (2011)|
As its name implies, this block is used for players to swim inside of, with their speed depending on their acceleration (as well as speed in Platform Racing 3) stat. How much of their body needs to be in it to swim depends on the game, in Platform Racing 2 any part will work, while in Platform Racing 3 only their legs count. While acceleration affects both a user's vertical and horizontal speed in PR2, only horizontal speed is accounted for in PR3 to prevent issues of getting trapped.
The block is also always translucent in PR3, while in PR2 it's only see-through when a player is swimming in it. The PR3 variants additionally have their respective basic block designs at the bottom of them, which aren't present in the other games.
In Creation, the block is less unique as players can already pass through all blocks by going up, but they do fall slowly when standing still on them. Water blocks can be combined with grass to form dirt, and with lava to create rocks. They can also be used to put fires on users out.
