I went through the Stories to Sims 2 Conversion Database and made a list of things that hadn't been converted yet. And then I picked out the things I was capable of converting myself, namely recolours and walls.

REQUIRES recolourable version from HERE
Notes:
  • Richief already recoloured the round plant pots from Pets (reuploaded by shastakiss here). I redid them for 3 reasons:
    1. Richief's pots are shinier than they are in Castaway Stories.
    2. Richief's file includes 3 recolours but there are 4 in total in the game files. Although it needs to be said that the dark terracotta version from Castaway Stories looks very similar to the dark terracotta that came with Pets. The one from Castaway Stories just has a rougher finish.
    3. Somehow with Richief's file in my downloads folder whenever I would select the round plant pot and place it somewhere, the selected pot colour was Richief's light terracotta instead of the default white one that came with Pets. Not that big of a deal, I know, but it always bothered me a bit.

    So I thought I would upload my version in case anyone else had these issues as well. In case you already have Richief's version and want to replace it with mine just remove the file named "PlantFlowerPottedCircle.package" from your downloads folder.

  • The worn frame part of the holy smoke stairs has already been found and done by devilsrope. I included the frame part in this recolour because otherwise the game would need to load the stair texture twice which doesn't make much sense since it's the exact same picture for both the frame and the glass part. Additionally, I made the metal part more matte so that the railing looks more like it does in Castaway Stories. So if you already have the frame recolour by devilsrope, remove the file named "cs_holysmoke.package" from your downloads folder.

  • The 3 tile walls are not part of the build bundle (this is the most updated version I could find, it's by Richief and includes fixes by meetmetotheriver and shastakiss). They are almost the same as the Washroom "Grimy Grout", "Not-so-White", and "Time to Clean" Tile walls from University. The only difference is that the blue line is has lost its colour and looks more pinkish. I included a comparison so you can decide for yourself if you want these 3 walls as well.
Files have been compressorized.
