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!

If you have the CC from my last hood Paraiso En Las Rocas and still play that one, just remove the "old" CC as it has now been updated to include all the extra items for this hood, without removing it from your exisitng gameplay. But rememeber to back up!

Welcome to of Paraiso en el Mar!

Paradise in the Sea or Paradise on the Sea, depending on which local you ask, has everything your castaway sims need from fine dining to angry pirates. What more can you want from an island? With all the eccentric locals, you will definitely find someone worth talking to. Who knows, it might lead you onto bigger and better things! Be sure to keep up with local traditions, as things tend to go crazy when the traditions are not observed!


The map features no townies, only the created sims using the Pooklet method, see below. I have added skills and badges to sims, they have full memories and families. Deacsesed Sims do not have any memories mind you!

This a for a unque style of gameplay, so I recomend having a seperate folder for this hood, and then you want normal gameplay swap out the folders, for those who want to fully immerse themselves in the Castaway hood, then there are some hiders included.

Please note that this hood was created 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!

Lots;
Community lots - 15
Residential lots - 28

Sims


Families = 14 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!

Click here for the full Paraiso Collection, separated by Build / Buy / Hood, Maxis Hiders and CAS CC required for this hood!

CAS;
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
Distant Terrain and Clouds

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 to crocobaura for her open underneath stairs! Game changer!
Thanks to Criquette for giving me the base files for my roads!
Thank you do Almighty Hat for creating the maxis hiders!

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.
