I'm finally ready to release the world and a populated save file. It's so exciting!
Find the links below:
Populated save file: (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!
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
*Camp near the caves (second camp of the survivors above)
*the Hatch (Swan Station)
*The Black Rock
*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!
