Please note for the Subhood version
So as per any populated Subhood, it is recommended that you run through hood checker after attaching to your other hood, as sometimes, very rarely the character ID's get thrown around. So it is always best to back up and double check with it!

Welcome to of Paraiso En Las Rocas!


Welcome to of Paraiso En Las Rocas! Paradise in the rocks' or 'Paradise on the rocks' depending on which local you ask is new, fun hood featuring your favourite base game premades, all in one hood and living that island lifestyle. With familiar faces and new faces, can they all get along to make the island live in harmony, or will they all end up creating such a toxic environment that the paradise part of the island's name will no longer apply?
The map features no townies, only the pre-mades from Pleasantview, Veronaville and Strangetown plus others, see below. The Sims are identical in the form of skills and interests and their faces from the originals, just now in castaway clothing!

Show Story Pictures;


Memories do not contradict themselves now, added EP related memories and wants such as "had first WooHoo etc", memories have been added were they were missed before, such as offspring aging up, grandchildren's aging up etc, maxed skills, etc and some sims now have special? abilities.

I have created graveyards for the deceased Sims that had graves previously, but not all ancestors. There are several sims that have passed that now have complete memories, they are;
Glabe Curious aka Pirate Queen Glabe
Darleen Dreamer,
Skip Broke aka Golden Beard, Skip Broke,
Claudio and Olivia Monty,
Caliban and Cordelia Capp,
Lyla Grunt aka Lyla Vandermorgan,
Hero Monty.


Please note that these sims were created as fresh copies in a clean hood template.

Quote:
I also went through and changed everyone's name to be in default language only, so if you are playing on a non-English version of the game, the names will not be randomised but will be the English versions. Let me know if this has not worked / any issues!


Scratch that, for some reason the names still randomise in some games, I will update shortly!


Lots;
Community lots ? 56
Residential lots ? 35

Detailed list of all lots included;


Families - 26 total
Sims included;


Families / Sims = 26 total Families
List of Sims age, names and genders of each household;


This map was run through Hood Checker numerous times, there are no issues.


Any problems let me know!

Enjoy your new hood!

To be able to see the whole map you will need a camera mod, I recommend using GunMods Camera mod to view the whole lot;

REQUIRED CUSTOM CONTENT
Compiled Castaway Build Buy Hood
Compiled Castaway Clothing
Not required but suggested;
Distant Terrain and Clouds

Myself and (mainly) Neytan have converted castaways clothes so that townies now wear these outfits. They also are enabled for pregnancies, so if you have mods that enable any pregnancy clothes then these are compatible.

Custom Content that is not required but I use;
Skin Replacements Maxis Match
Default Replacement Terrain Textures

Credits!
Of course, Neytan, thank you for enduring this whole process and doing the clothes! Thank you!
Gwenke for the Ocean Floor object (that is included in the compiled folders as I did some slight tweaks!)
A HUGE thank you to topp who originally compiled the clothes and objects etc, without this I would not have been able to tweak little things or compile them as much as they are!
The community who have fixed some of the castaway objects so they work in game, compiled within the link above also.
Big thanks to Mootilda for Lot Adjuster!
Thanks to EA and Maxis, for creating The Sims: Castaway Stories.
Thanks do Digi for separating the castaway outfits!
Thanks to crocobaura for her open underneath stairs! Game changer!

The items on this list are included in the bundle listed at the top of this page. There is no need to download content on this list. However, some objects had to have some tweaks and fixes, and the clothes, as mentioned have also been re-categorised.

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

Sims 2 University Nightlife Open for Business Pets Seasons Bon Voyage Free Time Apartment Life + 9 SPs

This is a multi-part download:


As this map is heavily required on the Castaway stories objects, decorations and clothes, you will need to download the compiled CC I have provided, if you only have the empty version then you will not need the castaway clothes.

Hello there! Thank you for this amazing neighbourhood, but there's a little problem. You said: 'if you are playing on a non-English version of the game, the names will not be randomised but will be the English versions.' But people who play on a Russian version of the game noticeted that so many names (and of course surnames) have changed (actually randomised).

I have a french version and all the first and last names were changed, randomised, a big mess... in each family no one has the same last name.

I'm playing UK English version and also have this problem

Looking in SimPE at the sim's catalogues, they all have their names in other languages set to random names. @LordCrumps - I think these should be set to blank if you want to use English as default.

...did you have a multi-PT mod when creating this? Because Bella's pregnancy is-- well, or did you make a few extra "aliens" for the plot. I'm just here having a bit of a mental panic over it-- and wondering.

Also a very fun and creative neighborhood in any case, thanks.

I am having SimPE flash backs with everything other than the memories, they are my favourite part!

Yeah sadly this is a common issue that I am getting through (slowly) as I am not at my computer much at the moment, I thought I had already gone through annoyingly!

Besides that,great work, it run smoothly even with my tons of mods in download and 15 downloaded neighborhood and 2 uberhoods


Oh thats good to know! Yeah, Castaway was such a cool "spin-off" game that really holds up well!

Yes! There is already a version (Subhood version) that can be attached to the shopping districts, make sure you run through hood checker once attached as sometimes characters will over lap, hoodchecker fixes this!

I am sorry, that is odd how even the surname is different in the same household, I can see how annoying that is! I am slowly working through the fix, but not at my computer much atm!

Hello! No multi-poli, I just made a few extra poli's for the alien babies, so they are not sharing the same one! Sorry it caused you some panic!

If you like Sims stuff, I have some videos on YouTube?

Hey! This looks awesome! I’m trying to add this as a vacation hood though and not having any luck. While I originally added it into the ‘best of business’ neighbourhoods template like you instructed, I have tried to move it to the bon voyage neighbourhoods templates, but it only recognises it as a potential shopping district. Any ideas??

You'll need to follow Mootilda's tutorial on how to first change the neighborhood type. Change it to tropics, and then move that said edited neighborhood to the Bon Voyage NeighborhoodTemplates folder. Without following the tutorial, the game will only see this as a shopping district or a main neighborhood. Also, note that the playables found on this neighborhood must be moved out of the lots first, and optionally turned into tropics locals using a townie brick CC object (google it) - otherwise, without the townie brick procedure, you'll only get the stock BV locals.

One of the staircases in the Dreamer house is being glitchy. It will let them go up but not down. It's the stairs on the floor with the chess table (right below the floor with the nursery). I've tried deleting the stairs but then I couldnt place them back

I am really loving this neighborhood! I would love to see this as a vacation neighborhood with a few added hotels and have it unpopulated so I don't have multiple versions of my sims in Pleasantview. I really love the style! also would I recommend you add the "Look of the Xtabay" Tiki Torch from the Life Stories to the pack and add it to you're lots? I know it is not part of the Castaway Stories, but it fits in with the look!

Also I had to remove some of the roofs of the dreamer household as the sims can go upstairs but when they try to go downstars, they cannot
