Another small fix to make my island nation work better!

This CAS replacement is set amidst the village huts of an islander people. They live close to the ruins of a much grander civilization. You will get a glimpse of the ruins when you visit the village.

Made using the AnyGameStarter, with Basegame and BV only.

No CC is required or included, but due to the immovable nature of the CAS objects, you will need Windkeeper's invisible CAS files. Find them here:
If you don't install them, there will be pictures hanging in mid air and other non-tropical phenomena. It won't look as good, but CAS will still function. In my pic you can see I've left the mirror visible, but used the wood recolour provided by Windkeeper.

Requires BV.

To get more light into the screens, I've enclosed the property and added lights under almost every tree and bush. So I hope you can see your sims well enough!

Additional Credits:
This turned out to be quite an easy job once I had read several different tutes on the subject, so thanks to ALL the tutorial-makers.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

Bon Voyage
