Welcome to Moon Islands!
Moon Islands is an archipelago popular among tourists all over the world, consisting of 7 islands, only one of which is inhabited. In recent years many people have moved here to look for a happy and a peacuful life, and some have came here hoping to have a successful carreer here. Will their dreams be fulfiled? How do people who originally inhabited this islands feel about them?

This is a neighbourhood on which I have been spending my free time last month. At first I intented on making it into a German-Baltic-inspired coastal city, but I decided to make it a tropical Hawaiian-inspired hood instead, as I couldn't work out how to build Brick Gothic houses. All lots should be fully furnished and there should be enough available houses and apartments for some new sims. Some of the community lots have been based on actual Hawaiian buildings I saw on google images and Google Maps.

This hood is not very big and it does not have many sims. There should be 51 sims overall inculding custom-made townies and the necessary NPCs. Some of them were made using Bodyshop and custom sliders by  Nopke. You needn't download them to play on this neighbourhood, but I strongly recommend them because they really improve Sims 2 CAS.

Families: (8 families in total)
-Hill: 2 sims in total; 2 adult women - Letisha and Evelyn
-Alana: 3 sims in total; Kanani - 1 elderly woman: , Kaimana - elderly man and Keahi - 1 adult woman

-Ramirez: 1 sim in total; Lisa - adult woman
-Kahale: 5 (6 if you count cats) sims in total; Kaimana - elderly man, Kamalei - elderly woman, Kealoha - adult man, Ku'ulei - adult woman, Kalua - child girl, Kya - female adult cat
-Palakiko: 3 sims in total; Naoko and Mahealani - adult women, Kamaka - adult man
-Moon: 6 sims in total; Jung-hyup - elderly man, Jung-sook and Ji-soo - elderly women, , Yoon-soon - adult woman, Won-soon - adult man, Han-ok - teenage woman
-Harrison: 5 sims in total; Harold - adult man, Catherine - adult woman, Paul - child boy, Joanne - child girl, Molly - toddler girl

A big fan of populated hoods (I've played over 25 different ones), it will be fun to check this out. Sounds like you have not set them up to have ongoing issues .. maybe I'll comment on all that.
so here is some feedback:
You named one community lot "Hotel Baracks", did you mean Barracks?
All the houses are missing things, like; phones, toilets, stove, frig. The big Moon family ...when first entered Yoon is floating in front of the house in her bathing suit - so think it had something to do with the pool. I couldn't direct her to do anything, or fix her, until I hit her with lightning. There aren't enough beds. They didn't have any kitchen appliances, I thought maybe because they had a buffet? Was there a reason houses are missing necessary things? Is there a reason the Alana house has ZERO money.
Don't know if you had a reason about these things, or if you want to "correct" them.
And I DO hope you are monitoring this thread.

Hmm, none of the things like this should happen, I'll check the neighborhood and try to fix all issues soon. Thanks for your feedback
