Requires The Sims 3 (base game) to use this DLC.
New adventures await your Sims on the sunny shores and beneath the glistening water of an island paradise! From exploring the tropical isles to creating a five-star resort experience, your Sims can decide to embark on an unforgettable journey or make themselves a new home in this new utopia. Nautical Sims can even take the helm of fully customizable houseboats and set sail between islands! If your Sims would rather be in the water than on it, they can snorkel and scuba dive their way through the ocean. Who knows, they might uncover sunken treasure or befriend a mermaid! With innovative features never before seen in The Sims PC franchise and a world of new possibilities on land and in sea, your Sims will reap the benefits of their own island paradise.
Set sail for adventure:
Be it by paddleboat or speedboat, your Sims can now leave port to discover new lands and explore like never before, from inter-island travel to discovering their own uncharted island. Landlubbers need not apply!
Build and run a five-star resort:
Create a family-friendly resort of waterslides and buffet tables, a romantic retreat dotted with minimalist cottages, or a singles resort featuring multiple pool bars where Sims can mingle and flirt. Choose and fine-tune your amenities, set your prices, and wait for the reviews—and Simoleons—to pour in. The higher your star rating, the more popular your resort will be!
Life is a beach:
See what surprises await under the sea as your Sims build their skills in snorkeling/scuba diving. Your Sims may find themselves on the shore of a new island or discover sunken or buried treasure.
Boat sweet boat:
Whether your Sims love the water or are just prone to wanderlust, a houseboat may be the perfect abode. Houseboats are fully customizable and can be moored at any open port, so if your Sims tire of the view, relocate to a new locale!
New ways to build:
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!
Good but a bit glitchyKatebirdlover | Aug. 25, 2015 | See all Katebirdlover's reviews »
When I got this game I couldn't wait to see all the new features it added to the game. I really like how we got to have our own houseboat and you can turn into a mermaid which is really awesome! Although the expansion is a bit glitchy. For example my sim was a mermaid and suddenly she was swimming on the land. Which looked kinda strange. And sometimes I see other mermaids doing the same. Also they kinda have a short hydration span and most of the day is her being in the water. Although I do enjoy that you can own your own resort and I also like the boats that come with it.
