The Sims 3 Island Paradise Guide

island paradise guide text

Your Sims will be able to explore by boat, go SCUBA diving, live in a houseboat or even build and run their own resorts. Nautical Sims can discover new islands, uncover sunken treasure and even befriend a mermaid! With innovative features never before seen in The Sims™ franchise and a world of new possibilities on land and in sea, your Sims will have an unforgettable adventure in their own island paradise.

Features:

• Set sail for adventure: Your Sims can now take off across the waves to discover new islands and explore like never before, whether by paddleboat, speedboat or fully customizable houseboat! What will you discover?

• Build the best resort in the islands: Specialize in waterslides and buffet tables to attract families, build pool bars where single Sims can meet and flirt or create a romantic retreat dotted with bungalows. How you choose your amenities and set your prices will affect your reviews and profits. Get a high enough star rating, and you’ll soon be rolling in Simoleons!

• Dive into the blue: See what surprises await beneath the sea! As your Sims hone their snorkeling and SCUBA diving skills, they may find themselves on the shore of a new island or discover a long-lost treasure.

• Boat sweet boat: Whether your Sims love the water or just love exploring, there is a range of fully customizable houseboats that can be moored at any open port. If your Sims tire of the view, they can just cruise on to a new locale!

• Build over the water: New stilted foundations give your Sims the best of both worlds—a home that’s partially on the water and partially on land. Build a resort, create travelling houseboats and customize your very own island paradise for your Sims!

Houseboats and Boats

houseboat

Houseboats bring you a new and fun way of living whether it’s with your friends, family, pets or just your Sim. Forget about land and sail for an adventure all around the world. If you have enough Simoleons, you can move into pre-made Houseboats that are waiting for you on the dock, but if you don’t have much simoleons you can purchase a houseboat platform and customize it by the way you want to. The possibilities are endless!

To buy a houseboat, simply click on an empty houseboat and select ”Purchase Property (x Simoleons)”. If your sim already owns a house on the land or a houseboat, they can purchase another one by clicking on the phone and selecting ”Real Estate and Travel Services > Purchase Additional Home”

To build your own house boat, go to  edit town and select the dock where you want to start building your houseboat. There are different sizes for you to choose.

To start moving your houseboat, click on the helm. From there you can change port and move your boat on your desired location. It’s much easier to just click on the water and select ”Move Houseboat here” thought.

NOTE: If your Sim is on a boat while it’s moving, he/she is more likely to get seasick. Seasick moodlet will only last for 1 hour.

TS3W 2013-06-25 17-55-22-10

To change the port simply click on the Helm and select ”Change Port”.

You can add 3 upgrades to your houseboat: Add foghorn, Add slow and fast speed and add Autopilot.

To add foghorn, your Sim needs to have level 1 of Handiness skill. With foghorn you can let other sims know that you are around!

Screenshot-287

To control slow and fast speed, your sim needs to have level 4 of Handiness skill. That way if you’re (not) in the rush you can set your desired speed.

Screenshot-289With Level 7 of Handiness skill, your Sim can upgrade your Houseboat with the Autopilot. That means you don’t have to be behind the helm to move the houseboat.

Boats allow you to travel around the world on the water. There are 7 new boats including 2 Speedboats, 2 Paddleboats,  1 sailboat, 1 Rowboat, 1 Sailboat and 1 Aqua-Sled. There are also 2 Windsurfs: 1 for Kids and 1 for Adults.

Screenshot-331

If your houseboat is not docked, mailman, neighboors and even burglars will come to your house using boats (usually aqua-sleds). I find it weird how when your young Sim has to go to school, they just teleport from the houseboat to the bus.

Let’s start with windsurfing, shall we? To start windsurfing, simply click on the water and select ”Go Windsurfing”. Your sim will start windsurfing where the wind leads them. The more you surf, the more your sim will be confident and after raising the ”Windsurfing” Hidden Skill, they will be able to do all sorts of tricks on the water!

Speed: 5

Paddleboats are slow and require energy, but it sure is nice to enjoy the scenery of your town while paddling through the water. They are really cute and they fit the best for younger Sims (although older Sims can use them too).

Speed: 2

Rowboats require even more energy for your sims to waste. There can be 2 Sims on a rowboat. Too bad that the other sim can’t help out.

Aqua-Sleds are the best when it comes to speed! They will transfer your Sim to their desired location in no time.

Speedboats allow you to have the best time of your Sim’s life! Not only that they are fast, but they also allow you to Waterskii. To Waterskii, you need 2 sims in a steady speedboat. Waterskii is also a new Hidden Skill that, each time you Waterskii, raises and unlocks cool new tricks for your Sim to show off! There are 10 levels of Waterskii Hidden Skill.

going underwater underwater shel scuba scuba diving

Scuba Diving is a new skill that allows you to go snorkeling and/or go underwater! There are 10 levels of the Scuba diving skill for you to master. Each level unlocks you new options and new ways to play on water and in the water. There are 4 diving lots in Isla Paradiso, and each of them gets unlocked after leveling up your Scuba Diving skill. To start leveling up, click on the water and select ”Snorkel”. Your sim might even find some seashells floating around!

While spending some time in the cave, you will get notifications about how your Sim is doing and he/she might even find an exit to another diving lot, but that requires better Scuba Diving skills. There is 90% of chance that your sim will find an air pocket, extending your Oxygen tank capacity for 1 hour.

If your Sim spots a shark underwater, they will wet themselves. If your Sim has a brave trait, they will never do that.

Challenges

  • Pearl Diver – Pearl Divers have collected at least 50 shells. Their reputation for collecting reputable finds helps them sell their shells at higher prices.
  • Underwater Spelunkers – Underwater Spelunkers are brave divers who have explored underwater caves at least 15 times. Those many trips in to the dark cavenrs means the Underwater Spelunker is more likely to find collectables while exploring caves.
  • Savvy Snorkeler  Savvy Snorklers have spent at least 40 hours snorkeling in water. Their experience scanning the underwater floor for hidden items gives them a higher chance of finding collectables while snorkeling.

If you have The Sims 3 Ambitions installed, you can register your Sim as a Self-Employed Scuba Diver in the Town Hall. Your responsibility is to collect and sell underwater treasure.

Uncharted Islands

uncharted island map

Isla Paradiso comes with 8 new Uncharted Islands. Uncharted Islands bring you a new way to play The Sims 3, never seen in the history of The Sims Franchise.

Uncharted Islands are covered with fog. Each time you hover your mouse over them it will say ”I wonder what’s down there…” making you even more intrigued about this feature. Each island has it’s own way of unlocking. Some islands are easy to unlock, while some take time and knowledge. After unlocking an Island, it will become your private lot (Sometimes it’s residental and sometimes it’s a resort lot)

This is the map of Uncharted Islands. (Numbers go from easiest to hardest to unlock Islands)

Beryl Shoals

Beryl Shoals is the easiest Island to unlock. All you have to do is have your sim use any kind of boat and pass near it. The fog will be lifted and you will have your very own Island.

Just like any other private lot, you have the ability to convert it to a Resort.

The size of this lot is 64×64. This small island has bumpy terrain which means that only a small part of this Island is buildable (Unless you smooth up the terrain, that is).

Diver’s Den

To unlock Diver’s Den, your Sim needs to have level 10 of the Diving Skill. To find the hidden Island, your Sim needs to Scuba Dive in Pearl’s Deep, and then explore the cave. Be sure to select yes after a message comes out asking ”You have found a new exit to the cave system. Do you wish to see where it leads?”.

Note: There is 50% of chance that your Sim will be redirected to a new Island. Keep trying until your Sim unlocks it.

Size of this lot is 50×60. This lot is made for building on stilted foundations, since 80% of this lot is covered in water.

No Trouble Atoll

To unlock the No Trouble Atoll Island, you need to own a resort, but it’s not just that simple. Your resort needs to have 5 stars. More info on resorts are on our ”Resorts” section that will be up and finished soon.

This island is pretty decent and works the best with stilted foundations.

Refuge Island

To unlock Refuge Island, you need to finish a series of quests from underwater to the ground.

To start your quest, visit a resort. Stay for 1 night in the cheapest room.  After that, click on a bell hopper and select ”Check for Adventures”. This opportunity will pop-up. Note that you must accept every opportunity to unlock the Refuge Island.

Your next objective is to talk about Refuge Island with Karlie Goldberg. You need to be in a good relationship with her so that she can tell you more about the Refuge Island.

Now you need to bring 3 Kelp to the Science Fascility. The best place where the Kelp grows is The Mermaid Grotto. Grab it and bring it to the Science Fascility for your next objective.

Successfully walking over the Firewalk isn’t that hard, right? You can set the temperature to Cool so that your sim is more likely to cross the Firewalk successfully.

Fighting with a shark may not be the best idea, since your sim might die. You better save your game before starting a fight just in case. High Athletic skill will help you defeat the shark, and some raw meat like tuna and a steak in your inventory is recommended if you want a shark to attack you. Once the shark shows up, click on it and select ”Watch the Shark”. The Shark will notice you after a while and attack you. Hope for the best that your Sim will survive!

Your last objective is to Search for the Map in the Military Base (it’s combined with the city hall and the Police Station. It will take 1 hour for your Sim to find the map. After that, the Island is all yours!

Mermaid’s Secret

Mermaid’s Secret Island is not very hard to unlock. You have to meet a mermaid and befriend him/her. You need to be in a ”Good Friends” relationship with her/him. Click on any Scuba Diving lot you want and select ”Scuba Dive with…” a mermaid sim. Once underwater, a mermaid will show you the secret entrance in the cave to Mermaid’s Secret Island.
