This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Fully tested for compatibility with the new "Pets" 1.26.89 patch


Castaway Set part 4
Part 1 Here: http://www.modthesims.info/d/457515
Part 2 Here: http://www.modthesims.info/d/458137
Part 3 Here: http://www.modthesims.info/d/458325

Included in this set are the following 6 items:
Sundial Alarm Clock - 3 channel recolorable - cost:5
Crate End Table - 2 channel recolorable - cost:5
Tree slice Dining Table - 3 channel recolorable - cost:5
Crate Dining Chairs - 2 channel recolorable - cost:5
Cardboard Box Trash Can- 1 channel recolorable - cost:5
Rum Barrel Decoration - 3 channel recolorable - cost:5


Details:

1. The sundial really works as an alarm clock. I debated at first just on making it decorative since it probably would be more realistic functioning by simply casting shadows but hey, I figured you have the option of not setting it for realism or setting it for functionality.



Where are they?
Everything is found in their respective places (tables, etc).

Will they work for your setup?
I am pretty sure that everything is base game compatible but I have all patches, and expansions installed.

What can you do with it?
Feel free to recolor it, retexture it, or anything you like. Just please credit me for the mesh.

Polygon Counts:
Sundial: 118
Crate End Table: 126
Dining Table: 126
Crate Chair: 126
Cardboard Box Trash Can: 106
Rum Barrel: 126

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Could you make nursery items to fit this theme? And maybe the Gnubb set so that it isn't wooden bunnies but rocks?

I absolutely love this theme you've been doing, when I get pets I'm going to be using it for a story I'm making - thanks so much for working so hard on it! I would second the nursery thing, or maybe some male clothes but I'm sure I'll love whatever you do next! :P

i think "castaway" theme is really a special one, western culture (as long as i know, mostly ameriacans) loves such kind of things (movies, books, and now i saw in-game objects)
please don't be angry if i offended you, i am just out of curiosity
why? i think you do like this, right? can you tell me why you like it?
(i am an Asian, so i really have no idea)

Hmmm...that's a good question! I don't know, I think maybe growing up watching the TV show, Gilligan's Island. :-) which was really popular when I was a kid. Also, I grew up in the mountains no where NEAR an island or a beach and I think it's sort of a novelty idea to many Americans because for the majority of us, islands are very far away.

i didn't think of that before, which does make sense
my country is an island lol so island is no secret to me
before you said so, i was thinking "castaway phenomenon" might be some kind of mental escape from people, society, morality, etc. blah blah blah
but since "mental escape" isn't region-restricted...XDDD obviously not true

thanks for responding such weird question
it's really kind of you to do so
and you're really good at creating objects BRAVO
i like them a lot
keep going : D

I DEFINITELY think that is in large part a "mental escape" as you said from society, people, etc and since islands are so far away, I think imagining being on a deserted island would be both a mental AND physical escape.

I don't mind answering that question at all! :-) I am a deep thinker and talkative so you picked the right person to ask! lol

to me, two most impressive movies is that the CASTAWAY by Tom Hanks and his darling Wilson lol and (Return) to the blue lagoon
and in the end of the movie, both had implied that return to civilization is no good at all
(abandoned by wife, lies, hypocrites, and deceives)
OMG now i wanted to be casted away but definitely not with Wilson

*and we can see from return to the blue lagoon
there are both mental and physical escapes (evil grin
and somehow we are escaping from reality as well by this not so real virtual sim world, didn't we? :" )

Hello,
Very VERY nice.
I wonder why "Sims 3 dashboard by Delphy" finds conflicts between many of the castaway items you created??? To me they seem to work ok all together. Any idea??
