This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Items fixed and tested to comply with the new Pets patch (Version 1.26.89)


Castaway Part 2
Part 1 found here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=457515
See part 3 here: http://www.modthesims.info/d/458325

This 7 piece set is part 2 of my Castaway/Shipwrecked series. Included in this set are the following items:

Hopscotch in the sand
Bamboo and banana leaf toilet
Bamboo and leather toilet
Plain box toilet
Rock waterfall shower (my favorite!)
Rock Mirror
Crate dresser


See all the pictures at the bottom of the post and be sure to check out part 1!


A little more description:
1. The hopscotch in the sand is a favorite of mine. It is recolorable so you can adjust it for your sand color.


2. The bamboo toilets are hard to get a good picture of because of their shape. I imagined that she just sort of threw them together out of whatever sticks and leaves she could find, then plopped down on a old box and filled the hole with dirt. They are not recolorable. I tried. Hard. But unless I used an overlay, everything NOT transparent was invisible. SO I was torn between 2000 polygons to make a non-transparent item and recolorable OR a low-poly non-recolorable item. I went with that. Bladder: 10


3. My personal favorite is the waterfall shower. A little "Nile river" terrain paint and it's good to go. One channel recolorable. Use any rock/stone texture and it looks great.(This was as good as I could map those rock curves but as can be seen in the pics below, I think it tiles quite nicely thanks to UV mapper). Hygiene: 9



4. Designed to look like a pool of water in a rock depression, the rock mirror reflects if anything is overhead. Sadly, I haven't been able to get my Sim to lean in far enough to reflect him/her :-( I still think it looks better for this scenario than a real mirror.) Fun: 3 + Charisma

5. Crate dresser is a simple pile of clothes on top of a crate complete with Simlish writing. She/he just sort of pulls the whole thing forward like a drawer. Clothes stay on top all the time. Environment: 3

Cost is 5 Simoleons each piece. I think a castaway Sim wouldn't really have much money...

Where are they?
Everything is found in their respective places (sinks, etc) but to keep everything organized and together, everything is also listed under miscellaneous decor as well. That way, when you're building your island, it's all right there together.

Will they work for your setup?
I am pretty sure that everything is base game compatible with the exception of the hopscotch which I believe is a generations item. If you don't have that simply unzip everything, drag it to your mods folder and then delete the hopscotch piece. No problem!

Issues:
I have tested it until I am ready to throw my computer out the window and I can't see anything but as always, let me know!

What can you do with it?
Feel free to recolor it, retexture it, or anything you like. Just please credit me for the mesh.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Does the waterfall have running water all the time or do you turn it on off like a shower?

It works just like a shower. On and off when they get in and out. I wish I could figure out how to make it run all the time...any creators know how to do that, feel free to let me know! ;-)

Great set, especially the shower! (And I had to LOL at the problem with the toilet being invisible unless you made it with a non-recolourable overlay - I had that same problem when I tried to make a medieval toilet for the Medieval Challenge last year, it was invisible in-game unless I used a non-recolourable overlay, and I gave up. I thought it was just me being dense, but looks like it's a standard problem. I wonder what's up with these invisible toilets!)

Whew! I'll stop feeling stupid now. LOL... I do NOT know. I tried everything.

I may be weird, but the toilet is my favorite piece in these 2 sets. Brilliant! The mirrored water rock is inspirational. Thanks for all of these items :-)

Not that I know of... I think you need Generations to use it though. Do you have that expansion?

Okay, I love the toilet. But I'd like to use it as a regular toiler, without the stall. I like outhouses... I'm lousy at making things and don't know the mechanics of this. Can you make and post a stand-alone version?

to lhawk07 - hopscotch can be used by child to elder (haven't tried toddler, but I assume that's not possible...), and teen-elder will build athletic skill playing. But you need generations, though.

I'm not sure exactly what you mean :-) Do you mean you just want the box without the bamboo stall attached?
