This world is not populated!
Isla Escudo is a beautiful Island republic consisting of two main states. The first is the main Isla Escudo with the greater majority of the population. The second is St. Agatha Isle. Loosely based on Jamaica. The Island was first settled by an ancient civilization consisting of both mermaids and humans. When colonization hit, the ancient civilization receded into the water. Isla Escudo was colonized by the Spanish. Isle of St. Agatha was first colonized by the dutch but later taken over by the British. Eventually, both countries revolted from their respected superpower and formed one republic. Thanks to the help that the mermaids provided in the revolutions, the two civilizations are very friendly and the mermaids opened up their underwater world to the humans when SCUBA technology became possible. Now the old world republic is trying to come to grips with modern technology.
I'm proud to say that there is NO 3RD PARTY CUSTOM CONTENT in this world. It's amazing how difficult that was to pull off. There aren't even any corrupt files attached to the world, just the world file, and the image file.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO DOWNLOAD THIS WORLD-
All EP's are used in some way except ITF, however the ones that are used heavily are Ambitions, World Adventures, Supernatural, Island Paradise (this one is absolutely necessary), Late Night, and University.
I don't know if seasons is necessary. All I used were a few objects and the wildflower spawners.
You could live without University Life or Ambitions to an extent. Showtime was used, but just for the decorations.
I stayed away from Stuff Packs, but an occasional item from Town Life, or Master Suite may pop up.
I used content from Dragon Valley, Barnacle Bay, and Riverview
Monte Vista is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY You cannot download this world without it.
miscellaneous store content is sporadic yet not necessary. I'll come up with a list of recommended objects around launch date.
No, I'm not ditching Baie Acadienne, it's almost done actually! I just need to finish the beach area, finish a few houses, and then add spawners, then it's time for beta testing!
God I hate Isla Paradiso, I just hate it so much (sorry world team, but I was really disappointed). So I started this a couple of days ago and I'm really happy with where it's going. This is an old forgotten colonial outpost in the Caribbean, it also will have ancient ruins. It's going to have about 5 islands in the open ocean. And they are seriously going to be in the middle of the ocean. You will hardly be able to see the main Island from them. I'm not going to have uncharted islands (I find them to be stupid) but there will be dive lots... hopefully.
One thing I hated about Isla paradiso was so much modern housing. That's not going to happen here. Everything is either colonial or ancient!
And this world actually has a decent amount of trees!
All except ITF.
I may include items from other EP's but they will not be required. Same applies with the stuff packs and store content.
THIS WILL REQUIRE MONTE VISTA THOUGH
