    The islands in the new IP world will they be accessible via any other world or only by that world?
    Could we have both a house and a houseboat or is it one or the other?

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the idea of having "surfing" in the game! I can't wait to build my own houseboat ... when I got seasons, I thought ... I can't possibly want anything else for my Sims... HA! Island Paradise has me DROOLING big time!! I can't wait for June!

    Everyone has such great ideas! Keep up the fantastic creativity and suggestions! :D

    I hope I am quoting right.... anyway, I too was just bewailing the fact that there are no wall less showers like from sims 2 university.

    More swimming options would be nice....I like that sims can swim and earn athletic skill points but it's a bit boring that they will only swim for a short time. Splashing and holding your breath under water is nice but it would really be cool if there was something else to help keep the athletic skill running.

    Learning tricks would be nice. Like (1)doggy paddle, (2)backstroke, (3)frog paddle, (4)windmill stroke {aka the normal fast stroke} and (5)float {basically with legs and arms spread to stay above water}

    - A lifeguard career would be a cool loophole career.
    ....

    [Entering Competitions]

    - Speedboat competitions
    (based on handiness, science or inventing to enhance the boat)
    - Swimming competitions
    (based on athletic ability, and ability to do swimming tricks as posted above)
    Totally 2nd this. I've been wanting to do competition stuff like this ever since the base game. I was hoping for something like this with Seasons, but IP provides the perfect opportunity to do a Sim triathalon type event. 8)

    with all the watercraft and activities comming with IP, swimming classes will become mandatory at Uni. I'm going to build a marine science major classroom on a house boat and use the lecture board in the student union to teach sims custom marine classes like swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving. :mrgreen:

    Next to jetskis, sailboats, speedboats, and rowboats, coming with IP, they should also add swimming competition challenges. And yeah, also add WINDSURFING. 8)

    Unlike surfing, this doesn't require waves. So it would be really easy to add as a watersport. And Boggie boarding too come to think of it 8)

    There are showers that came with Sunlight Tides, but they still have to be against a wall, but I like them.

    WOW....I can't wait. :D
    :shock: great white shock, octopus, giant squid, jelly fish, exotic new fish from the deep. Killer whale and or dolphins would be nice. Sea horse as a pet :wink: How about oceanographer as a new career. :mrgreen: Just a little something from the top of my head :!:
    I am shore the game would be a great add on to the fun for our sims.

    No they don't. I can place the outdoor shower anywhere outside.

    W O W.

    I have wanted an hotel option in this game for much to long. I have tried creating my own, but it is never the same since only 1 family permantly lives there.

    Will the hotel option be included in an update for us all to use, or only avalible in this EP?? .... :/

    Add mobile home parks!!! I would love it if you guys also made new careers with this pack that are related to stuff like lifeguard career and like maybe boat driver career(like a taxi service kinda) maybe you guys could add stuff like competitions for the boats. Add more beach-y haircuts!!!! Do you buy the boats?? Also, add lots of beach-y furniture!!! Also, add body piercings like nose rings and belly button rings!!!!!!!!! that would be soo cool! And new tattoos!!

    I'm pretty sure you can because all worlds don't have ocean. Some like Hidden Springs,Riverview etc only have fresh water.

    You know it's possible they might include a new lot named hotels and people who download the patch maybe able to use it.

    I've been zoning no visitors allowed so only my sims can spend the night in a house which I call a hotel but when IP comes out I won't have to do that anymore.

    The hotels will be open.

    I said that I didn't want the venues to be Rabbit Holes, if there are any resturants or movie theaters around the hotel, not in it. So, just saying that there shouldn't be Rabbit hole theaters that you can place around the hotel, not in it. I would love to place other venues outside the hotel, around the resort and in the home neighborhood. Or are you saying just the Hotel is open.Cause Im saying that, some resorts have small business around the area, not in the hotels Themselves or living areas. The resorts in Bahamas have small venues and business around the resort area. But not in the hotels. I didnt talk about the hotels.

    Gotta say I've not got much love for the 'Houseboats'... maybe it's because they are virtually unheard of here in the UK but to me they look really stupid! In the UK we only really have canal boats as houseboats. The idea of a two story house on what looks like a raft just comes over as silly and unbelievable, and the idea of sailing around in one even more so!
