Hidden away from the realm of our world, surrounded by a dark and eerie ocean, and sat beneath an ominous purple sky, is a mysterious little town known only to the supernatural and those looking for a good scary time! Here, frightening fun lurks around every corner along with a healthy dose of spine-tingling scares! Welcome to Halloween Hideaway!

A few things to note about Halloween Hideaway:
- This is a ROADLESS world, so there are no vehicles of any kind, nor can vehicles be used. This means no cars, scooters, bicycles, broomsticks, taxis, trucks, limos, buses,and carpools. Some services that require vehicles such as maids, repairmen, pizza delivery etc. will not be available as well. There is an "invisible sidewalk" system in place that keeps your Sims on the designated pathways around town. Or if you prefer, there are LLAMA teleporters sprinkled around to make transportation easier. I would suggest downloading this mod that reduces the risks of using teleporters: http://www.modthesims.info/d/501781...-3-flavors.html
- This world has customized weather and lighting files. If you have any global lighting mods in your game I would suggest taking them out so they do not interfere with the custom lighting. The lore of the island dictates that it is set in a perpetual time loop that keeps it forever Halloween night. For this reason, Daytime and Nightime lighting are essentially the same to give the feel of an eternal Halloween night. Weather is still routine however and clouds will change colors based upon weather patterns.
- The plants in the greenhouse at Oleanders will go dormant in the winter as the roof is open. Also, any pumpkins set out around the town are debug items and will expire in about three days. Feel free to replace them with proper decorative pumpkins! This does not apply to the pumpkin trees, as those are simply textured that way.
- The Dollhouse is perfectly livable, but is not seasons-proof due to the open back. This can easily be managed with controlled weather, but rain and snow will pile up inside if you choose to leave them on. Your Sim may also get privacy notices due to the open bathroom.
- There are a few buildings that utilize the Supernatural sliding bookcase doors. However, they will not work upon your first use and you will have to manually delete and replace them or click them and 'reset' them to make them work. This is just an EA bug with the doors, but they can easily be remedied as stated before.
REQUIREMENTS: Expansion Packs: World Adventures, Ambitions, Late Night, Generations, Pets, Showtime, Supernatural, Seasons, University Life, Island Paradise, Into The Future. Stuff Packs: Fast Lane, Outdoor Living, Town Life, Master Suite, Katy Perry's Sweet Treats, 70's 80's & 90's, Movie.
THIS WORLD CONTAINS NO CC OR STORE CONTENT!

I would like to extend a huge thanks to everyone who helped me along the process of creating this world!

Thank you to attuned, Norn, and Fluse for testing the world and helping me find and fix any issues and troubleshoot everything so that everything worked as it should!

That's a Sims 3 for you. The whole freakin'n world for players liking.
Try that in Sims 4...
I cannot get over it still - no large worlds with customization options and no open worlds.... Such a deal breaker for me.
Long live TS3.
This map is just beautiful! I love the atmosphere "Halloween", there with all these beautiful buildings, the color of the sea, the sky, the fog, the streets ... The atmosphere is superb! When I think this map is bigger and 1000 times more successful than the Sims 4 Magical World, it's just crazy. The Sims 3 always on top !!
Thank you very much for this achievement. It is always a pleasure to discover new creations again in 2019 and discover new places for this game. Thank you and congratulations !!
