Requires Patch 1.50 and PETS expansion

(Note: There have been some successful loads of the world even without pets by some testers of mine, but objects, plants, and rabbitholes are missing and need replacing by those people, and the files are completely unsupported for those without Pets. Also! You do NOT need to own Aurora Skies.)

People who are trying to unzip this and getting error messages about file corrupted/etc., or have never opened a multipart file before, PLEASE be sure you've gone over the multi-part-download instructions at http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php...ulti-part_files - Most of the time these errors are because your extraction program is being fussy about how you rename files! These files are NOT corrupted, as evidenced by all the people who are having no problem with them! Also, if you're experiencing wonky game play, please be sure all your mods are up to date since so far every complaint has been traced to other mods broken with the 1.55 patch! Thank you!

Fharhond Glacier is only one feature of the island, but being one of the main features- the other being Fharhond Mountain- the entire island is generally known by the name. In the far north, just short of the arctic circle, it's an isolated little place, out of sight of the oil derricks and fishing fleets, home to a few hardy souls and a research station. It has almost more amenities than it needs- though people do come in from other, smaller islands, as well as perhaps those oil derricks, so the businesses manage to squeak along.

The island is windswept, and almost just tundra and rock, though some trees survive, and people have planted hardy ones around the town to help keep the ocean gales softened at least a little. Despite these harsh conditions, there is wildlife, and while other areas may have moose or bears that wander the downtown streets, Fahrhond has the ocassional wild horse trot past bemused townsfolk.
