UPDATED 02/22/09
Hi all!

I'm finally ready to release the world and a populated save file. It's so exciting!

Find the links below:

World: http://www.mediafire.com/?0m3kmmmmnmq

Populated save file: http://www.mediafire.com/?qtjggtgnyek (this is a .rar file of a folder. Un-rar it before use!)

Install the world file, then move the populated save file into your Sims 3 save folder. After doing this, the save file should show up when next you play the Sims.

I've had some fun playing with the cast on the island, so I'm including screenshots of most of the characters visiting various landmarks in-game. Let me know what you think!

See the end of this thread for the character list. It was so long, and this post is already long.

There are some new screenshots too... just keep scrolling down!

Enjoy!

I'm working on my first world, which will be based on the island where all the action takes place on the TV show LOST. It's based on maps of the island that fans have made, and includes the following canon locations:

*Beach camp (survivers of the mid-section of Oceanic Flight 815)
*Hurley's golf course
*Sun's garden
*Camp near the caves (second camp of the survivors above)
*the Hatch (Swan Station)
*The Black Rock
*Rousseau's camp
*the radio tower
*DHARMA mass grave (graveyard)
*the DHARMA barracks (aka Othersville): including an infirmary, a general store, the gazebo, a general information office/city hall, a security office, the DHARMA school for the gifted and a bunch of DHARMA barracks to live in.

I may indicate the locations of the other DHARMA stations on the map with landmarks like the mine shaft, but I don't intend to make them playable.

I'm a big Lost fan, so that's my inspiration for creating this, but hopefully the world will be interesting for even non-Lost-fans to play. Your playing style in the world will depend a lot on where you choose to make your Sims live: in a survivor camp or in the DHARMA village. The survivor camps are too far away from the DHARMA community landmarks to make commuting to them easy, so campers will need to fish/garden/collect their way into food and money. DHARMA villagers will have more access to the standard amenities.

I should be able to create some screenshots in the next few days! I hope there a some Lost fans out there who will be excited by this!

    I, for one, am very excited. I was a huge fan of lost, but I haven't had a chance to watch it here lately. So glad you had this idea! Can't wait to see it and actually play it! Good luck!

    I am a big Lost fan and thought about creating the island from Lost.

    So it would be fantastic if you do this. Can't wait to have it in my game.

    New screenshots added! Maybe more to come later tonight: the Hatch, the mass grave, and Hurley's golf course.

    OMG, this is so accurate! Im also a big Lost fan! I tried to create the island a while back but I had just begun using CAW so it wasnt the best world out there. Anyway, when will it be out? I cant wait todownload it! Youre a genious! :-) :-) :-) :-)

    I hope to have at least a first draft out by the end of the week, after I beta it for a while first. I'm planning on releasing an uninhabited version, then another with Lost characters populating it.

    I do have a question for all those reading: how many of the residential lots should be left as empty lots? If I remember right, there are 23 residential lots... right now there are 9 empty, but I plan to design 3 more homes, leaving 6 empty.

    Is that about right? That would mean there's 3 empty lots in the Darma village and 3 in the survivor camp.

    Let me know what you all think!

    Added 2/16: new screenshots, focusing on the Darma barracks village and an overhead view of the island.

    Feedback is always welcome!

    Bookmarked! I'm a huge Lost fan and I attempted the Island a couple of weeks ago, but gave up.
    Are you going to going to do the 3-toed statue?
    It looks great so far.
  • addverbaddverb Posts: 53 New Member

    I don't have any idea how to make a statue like that! Do you have any ideas?

    I don't think there's anything already made in-game that looks anything like a huge stone amputated foot with three toes!

    I've never seen "Lost" so I don't have a clue what that looks like, but something to keep in mind if you should try to create it is that you can move rocks in just about any way you can imagine in C-A-W. So for example you could use a large rock for the foot and turn the rock on its side, then put it partway into the ground, then use smaller rocks on their sides as toes.

    There are many things that I want to do in C-A-W that I can't see right off the bat how to do. When I let my imagination work on them for a while, then I can sometimes find a way.

    I experimented with it a little in CaW... here's what I came up with:

    5l53ef.jpg

    That looks vagely like the front of a four-toed foot.... right? If you have a good imagination? :oops:
  • BSIReginaBSIRegina Posts: 5,110 Member

    Yes, it does look vaguely like a four-toed foot! I'm not quite clear on what the second toe from the right is doing though. :lol:

    Looks great. I have a question, how were you able to make your costume rabbitholes work? .. I tried to make "log cabin" versions of City Hall, etc however they just sat on my map and acted like comunity parks.
  • addverbaddverb Posts: 53 New Member
    edited February 2010
    I asked that same question! Here's a link to that thread... you should find helpful info there. Scroll down a little and you'll read two different methods of altering rabbitholes. http://forum.thesims3.com/jforum/posts/list/172896.page

    Thanks addverb, putting the EA rabbithole in a basement and building what I want on the surface looks like a plan :)

    I just tested putting the EA rabbithole (bookstore) in a basement and building a log cabin "bookstore" on the surface. ... bummer .. the camera follows the sim into the cabin, down the steps, and into the EA bookstore in the basement. Sort of blows the "back woods" look and feel I wanted.

    By the way, your island looks great :) .. hope you can get the rabbit holes to work.

    I just realized that I typed 3-toed in my other post, but I meant to say 4-toed. I was thinking about how to make it, but I'm not sure. Maybe the terrain sculpting tool could be used to create it.

    Thank you!

    The main post has just been updated with a download link! I hope people give my world a whirl! Let me know what you think of it here in this thread.

    Also, I am working on a version that will be populated with a host of Lost characters, so look forward to screenshots of that!

    Excellent job addverb. I am a huge fan of Lost and have been working on my version of the island too, but I am very slow. I haven't been able to work on mine for a few weeks so I have no idea when I might finish it.

    I am going to have to do some new planning now that we have seen the Temple :)

    Did you consider using the tents for the survivor camp?

    I can't tell from your screenshots. Did you try to make a representation of the sonic fence?

    I really like your Black Rock, massgrave and swan.
