Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Update to the Ferris wheel here: http://gardenofshadows.org.uk/garde...26289#msg726289

Sitting at home bored? Wish your neighbourhood had something new and exciting to do? Look no further, Magic Island is here!


So I had collected a number of downloads suitable for a carnival and thought I would make a lot to share and showcase these new lovely converted items. I didn't realize when I started what a challenge this lot was going to be, it tossed just about every issue possible at me, but here it is-finished! Some items were originally created by Echo & Hexameter and have been updated and made new by Crisps&Kerosene sims and Leefish. All credit to them.

We will follow the McMillan's as they have a day at the carnival.

"Two adults and one child, thanks." Toddlers are free.
The park will spawn a number of NPC's including 6 check out clerks, food judge, makeover artist, barista and the human statue. This is to make the park shops and ticket booths feel more real, but all but the clothes shop cash register can be removed if you wish to cut this down.

Rides
Carousel
It spins, plays music and one sim can ride at a time.

Getting a sim to ride isn't always easy. This is a known bug of the carousel. I found I needed two sim both with ride lined up then cross out one and one sim should ride. I was aiming to get the child, but mum decided she should have first turn. You will find the sims freeze and the carousel stops while you get one on. The adults fit well, children clip the saddle. The sims sit and wave as they go around. Cancel ride to stop them riding.

The carousel was made from the OFB car stand and generates no NPC so it can be removed safely at any time. Grab the separate cc folder for this.

Bumper Cars
Originally made by Echo these have been re meshed by Leefish. Since the bumper cars does contain an NPC a link to the download has been given seperatly. The ride is built you just need to set it up.

Setting the ride up:
Find the parking space at the start of miscellaneous and place one down on each of the coloured rectangles and place a car over the top. I colour coded the rectangles to the cars. Then tell your sim to sit and off they go.

Ferris Wheel
This shows no NPC in SimPE so is included in the lot. Simply click ride. [/spoiler]

Food


Side Show Alley


Shops


Other Features



Please Install Separate Folder of CC before installing the park. Some files are uploaded seperatly since they did not all want to come with the file. Also the food items require the recolours to work. On removing the recolours they stopped working which is why they are all included. All food is safe to remove since they do not make memories or favourite foods.

No NPC have been included in the lot. Since the makeover chair spawned an NPC I cleaned the lot in SimPE of all sim references.

Bumper cars (does contain an NPC!) Can be found here: http://www.leefish.nl/mybb/showthread.php?tid=6828

World Of Wonders (whole set) found here http://crispsandkerosene.tumblr.com...s-converted-for

Please let me know if there are any issues. One thing I have not been able to stop is the lights along the left fence vanishing. The rest stay put.

Just realized I swapped the mens and ladies bathroom doors. Men will have to deal with pink tile, I'm sure they will live.

Lot Price 208,206

This is amazing... i love posts like this, and what i mean by "this" is, the ones when i'm scrolling through the pictures and reading the description, i suddenly realize that i'm grinning from ear to ear. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful creation!

I've always loved that ferris wheel, and always secretly wished it was a two-seater, so that sims could cuddle and kiss at the top of the ride. haha.

@ joandsarah77 This is absolutely fantastic ! Still one question is any items control by NPCs ? Just curious to know, all those I do not have any of the EPs after Seasons.

Simonut, The park contains no NPC's and I outlined each ride in the description. Just click on the spoiler buttons and make sure to read it all.

I gave separate links to the Bumper cars, mime and clown should people want them since they are NPC's.

What a fantastic lot and I want to use it in my game but I have the old carnival set already in my game with echo's bumper cars so do I have to remove the old echo's package files relating to bumper cars to make this work or remove the whole old carnival lot as I was hoping to have both carnival lots in my game if that was possible?

@sparky1922 When you follow the link to the remeshed bumper cars you will see Leefish says they will overwrite Echos. Do not remove anything.

Thank you joandsarah77 as you will probably be aware I still consider myself to be a fairly new sims 2 player and as such have made mistakes but right now I have one perfect world I do not want to mess up as I have invested so much time in it so just wanted to check and make sure and now I do its getting downloaded into my game today-) While I am here and typing I want to thank you for many of your other great builds as well that I downloaded and use on a regular basis.

Thanks sparky, glad you like them.

The cart runner (I think it's called) is an NPC, an invisible sim. Never remove an NPC file since that is the same as deleting a sim. You can tell if a file is a sim by opening it in simpe. Old recolours and meshes are fine to remove though.
