Welcome to Sim-Tropico!
This tropical island is the global remake of Sunlit Tides.
This world is best for Pets, Seasons and Island Paradise
as well as for play with NRaas StoryProgression mods!

Русская версия городка - в моем блоге!


101 lots included:
38 lots 30х30 with 23 residential and 1 empty;
18 lots 40х40 with 9 residential and 1 empty;
10 lots 50х50 with 4 residential and 1 empty;
6 lots 64х64, and much more:
6 residences with horse stables,
7 beach residences with private yachting,
2 ports,
6 public beaches with bars, sport activities and lifeguard service,
5 dive spots,
8 bars with casino, restaurants and private show.


The Map Size is Large.
If your dog likes hunting or if your sim likes surfing - they will prove it


WPID-data was changed.
The game get Sim-Tropico as brand new custom world, which required the full stuff from EA Store SunlitTidesDeluxe Set (with Serenity Retreat) for correct play.
It means that you do need EA Store Sunlit Tides installed before you run Sim-Tropico.
After that you will get in your game both worlds for play, with separated saves for each one.
So this is not replacement. No conflicts with Sunlit Tides saves.


Sunlit Tides INI-files on board.
Sunsets and sunrises in Sim-Tropico are really beautiful... and days and nights too


Global Layer was cleared.
So Sunlit Tides population was totally delited and Sim-Tropico is unpopulated. For now
Sim-Tropico is waiting for your sims!


A lot of routing fixed were made.
Actually the entire map was checked carefully, than tested.
Hope no bugs on the map or on the lots now.


Spawn Points were changed.
A lot of spawners of all types from all required EP were added, mostly from WA.
No relic spawners from WA tombs were added, because of no tombs in Sim-Tropico.
Default spawners were totally changed, partly replaced, partly delited, because Sim-Tropico must be rich but not extremely rich


Happy Simming!
