Sitting at home bored? Wish your neighbourhood had something new and exciting to do? Look no further, Magic Island is here!
So I had collected a number of downloads suitable for a carnival and thought I would make a lot to share and showcase these new lovely converted items. I didn't realize when I started what a challenge this lot was going to be, it tossed just about every issue possible at me, but here it is-finished! Some items were originally created by Echo & Hexameter and have been updated and made new by Crisps&Kerosene sims and Leefish. All credit to them.
We will follow the McMillan's as they have a day at the carnival.
"Two adults and one child, thanks." Toddlers are free.
The park will spawn a number of NPC's including 6 check out clerks, food judge, makeover artist, barista and the human statue. This is to make the park shops and ticket booths feel more real, but all but the clothes shop cash register can be removed if you wish to cut this down.
carousel The main feature of the park is the beautiful carousel converted from TS3 by Crisps&Kerosene sims
It spins, plays music and one sim can ride at a time. Using
Getting a sim to ride isn't always easy. This is a known bug of the carousel. I found I needed two sim both with ride lined up then cross out one and one sim should ride. I was aiming to get the child, but mum decided she should have first turn. You will find the sims freeze and the carousel stops while you get one on. The adults fit well, children clip the saddle. The sims sit and wave as they go around. Cancel ride to stop them riding.
The carousel was made from the OFB car stand and generates no NPC so it can be removed safely at any time. Grab the separate cc folder for this.
Originally made by Echo these have been re meshed by Leefish. Since the bumper cars does contain an NPC a link to the download has been given seperatly. The ride is built you just need to set it up.
Setting the ride up:
Find the parking space at the start of miscellaneous and place one down on each of the coloured rectangles and place a car over the top. I colour coded the rectangles to the cars. Then tell your sim to sit and off they go.
This shows no NPC in SimPE so is included in the lot. Simply click ride.
As children run for the carousal they will probably get side tracked by the fairy(candy) floss and popcorn machines.
No wonder when it's three times the size of your head! These are part of the World of Wonder set and are included in the separate file.
Doesn't that make you feel nostalgic?
The ice cream parlor is part of the shopping area. This was converted from Sims 1 and sims can buy soft serve or regular.
Using: The ice-cream can be a bit buggy. Make sure only one sim at a time buys a cone.
The outside 'eating area' is decorative only. The floor edging prevents the chairs from being used. There are plenty of other chairs around and Sims stand to eat their ice-cream anyway.
This includes coffee and two converted sims 3 eating contest tables. here they act as a pie and hot dog buffet. Your sims will need to serve the food first.
Most carnivals feature cakes and baking. So long as your sims arrive with some kind of food in inventory they can enter a cooking contest. Food can be eaten after a contest is over.
Side Show Alley
A carnival has to have a side show alley.
This is by Katy at PCSims off the graveyard.
Sims can pay a certain amount of money and win money. I have not seen them lose. In game the item's description says it's for toddlers but it's only for adults.
Wack-A-Set is another item from the World of Wonder set.
Children up can have fun on this. It's really an electronic stand up game.
Not creepy at all...
Amusement Standee is by Veranka and part of the Boardwalk set.
You will need to pose your sims behind the stand and take a picture.
Got to get your T-shirt and souvenirs.
Sims can only buy from the clothing shop, the rest is deco except ice-cream)
Tiny Tots Area
This includes jumping castle, bucket and spade creativity toy, toy box, llama ride on and a twist and turn ride.
Two sims can sing karaoke together but one may need to enter from the left and the other the right.
If the audience appreciates it is another matter.
Potty, change table, mini fridge and high chair. There is another smaller bathroom at the back of the shops
Please Install Separate Folder of CC before installing the park. Some files are uploaded seperatly since they did not all want to come with the file. Also the food items require the recolours to work. On removing the recolours they stopped working which is why they are all included. All food is safe to remove since they do not make memories or favourite foods.
No NPC have been included in the lot. Since the makeover chair spawned an NPC I cleaned the lot in SimPE of all sim references.
For the creators whose items I used to make this park, the main ones by Crisps&kerosene sims.

Basic Download and Install Instructions:
1. Download: Click the download link to save the .rar or .zip file(s) to your computer.
2. Extract: Use WinRAR (Windows) or Stuffit (Mac) to extract the .sims2pack file(s) from the .rar or .zip file(s).
3. Install: Double-click on the .sims2pack file to install its contents to your game. The files will automatically be installed to the proper location(s).
You may want to use the Sims2Pack Clean Installer instead of the game's installer, which will let you install sims and pets which may otherwise give errors about needing expansion packs. It also lets you choose what included content to install. Do NOT use Clean Installer to get around this error with lots and houses as that can cause your game to crash when attempting to use that lot. Get S2PCI here: Clean Installer Official Site.
