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.

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!

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!

Download "ParaisoPopulatedMain" for the populated version, and ?ParaisoEmptyMainHood? for the empty version, extract which ever file you need then you should see the "AZTE" folder.
Place the "AZTE" folder straight into your Neighborhood folder in your Documents,
I have the Sims 2 Ultimate Collection so this is the file path for that.

Download "ParaisoSubhood" and extract, you should see a "B444" folder.

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;

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

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.

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.
