Castaway: Waikiki - tropical island

Sunlit Tides mobilized me to fix paths and I've finished my new empty world - Waikiki ;) Map size of the island is medium. Waikiki requires 3 first EPs for spawners and last - Showtime - for palms.

Lots: 26.
Terrains: by me (9) and one (Grass Spring) by Martine & EA (rock).
Spawners: all available: from base game, World Adventures, Ambitions, Late Night.

Extras:
~ Lots on the beach
~ Waterfall
~ Custom sky and water colors

  1. Woah! Beautiful.

    Does it have space for a house perhaps?
    Like just one? [: To resemble a private island?

  8. Wher is the water for waterfall coming from? I don't see any source.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Water coming from the ground ;)

    Water color is made by me and the island includes it and sky color too. 5 last photos are from game with lighting mod, but it not changes water color.

    If you want unpack the .rar file, you must download program for it, for ex. WinRAR.

    Thanks for comments :)

    1. Hello, Latoya, my name is Stan, I'm working for the tropical world too, but my scenario will be about tribes of people who lived in their villages when the people from civil world came and found that there're alot of diamonds and became this world damned, because they built their houses, used oil, built mines and etc. Your work is brilliant and it shows me how the vegetation must be. Thank you really much!

  16. Yay, now I won't need Sunlit Tides! :D Thank you so much. I was wondering, can you also include the CAW file? I plan on using this with Traveler, and I'd love to be able to pre-populate and decorate the world with completed lots. :)

    Seriously, beautiful work. Just amazing. THANK YOU SO MUCH. <3

  34. Hello latoya ;)
    greatings from Holland!
    I really like your island Waikiki and your other world ( Prato di Livorni). But I have a problem.. I can't download it the way I click on the soap. Acctualy I can download it but than I can't open it with sims3 launcher or anything else. It's very frustrating.
    My question is will you please put it also on tsr or sims3.com? Than I will be able to download with sims3 launcher automaticaly.

    Well, I hope that you have some tips for my or put it on another website!
    Lots of love from the Netherlands!! Juliëtte

    P.s. Great website! I love the design and the stuff you make -xxx-

  35. Hello latoya (again XD)
    I've sims3, ambitions, world adventures, late night and pets on my computer.
    But I've tried to open Waikiki island by opening the map and than click on open as.. I've clicked on sims3 starter application. But now it automatically opens all sims3 downloads that way, so I can't put it on the startprogram of sims3. Normally you would see the picture of sims3 but now you see the picture of sims3 in a piece of paper. I hope you have any idee what I have to do to change the package to open it on the sims3.

    Lots of love Juliëtte

    1. Unpack into documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads, start launcher, click downloaded button and try to install the world. If it still doesn't work, you can write mail to me: los.696@gmail.com and I try to help you :)

  36. It 's really very beautiful but I can not build houses. It would not be possible to release at least a hut? So you can play Robinson Crosoe? Thanks a lot and congratulations!

  37. Hi Latoya,
    This is a beautiful creation, it looks absolutely stunning. I was just wondering, is there any chance you could upload a save file for this world? I only ask because my game is borked and I can only play custom worlds by accessing via a save. Not to worry if you can't, I just thought there's no harm in asking.

    ReplyDelete
  38. wow this island is beautiful, I am downloading this immediately! Thanks so much!

  39. Of all the Worlds (bought almost all of them) Waikiki is among my top 2 or 3 favorites. With Castaway-like decor, I was able to create a no-electricty island of shacks and basic other needs. What fun. The wild horses are beautiful, fishing and swimming even near the waterfall is much fun. You did an incredible job with fauna and flora. I ensured the only mode of transportation was riding bareback, or maybe the discovery of a rickety old bike in the junkyard that I placed. I have been using this island for a while now and can assure you it's glitch free and OH SO MUCH FUN. Great job, I bow to your hard work and willingness to share.

  40. Hi your world is so beautiful, but I do not use mods.
    The sky and water that is Mods will it be in the CAW as i would love to use the CAW file and add lots of a certain size etc. for my own personal use.
    You have done such a wonderful job in this world. Are there any CC also

  41. I'm very picky when it comes to worlds for The Sims 3 but I have to say after installing this one and playing it a bit I love it. It's something completely different, it's a nice change. I can tell you worked very hard on it and it looks amazing!

  42. Forget my Sims, *I'm* moving here! :-) This is so beautiful, I cannot even begin to imagine how to make something like this. Such a good job!

  53. Hiya! I know this is years later but I was wondering if I could use this island as a template for a challenge that I'm making. Of course full credits of the island will go to you and I will always make sure to link to this page.

    Could you let me know if you give me your consent to use this island?

    Thanks! Great Island!
