Who is Paka'a Uha?!

This Sim...

I thought he was a random, at first, but it was said in another thread that someone else had him in game, so i checked, and he is in every new save, appears at random. He has a femminine frame, and the perky walking style, and he also has always the same traits... (goofball, music lover, child of the ocean, gregarious) .. the only different thing is the hair color in the mermaid form sometimes... is he in your game too?!

    Very interesting. Have yet to see this sim. Might need to check hidden households then as I've yet to see him.

    I do not have him in my main save. Started a new save, checked all households including the hidden ones and didn't find him, either. Although the new save also didn't have an alien pollinator or a grim reaper, so maybe this merman exists somewhere in potentia in the files and something is needed to trigger his actual creation? Do you still have your original three mermaids?

    Or maybe he came with the latest patch. I didn't do that one, because it disables wading in rivers, so I wouldn't have the new sim.

    He's not an hidden household, he's just like a random townies, but I'm pretty sure he's not... I never saw a townie with a custom walk or the femminine frame. @EnkiSchmidt maybe you need to play a bit and let the game generate townies for him to appear.

    He turned up in my new save as a member of one of the arty clubs. The hair threw me and I thought he was a girl at first.

    So... he doesn't seem to be a random, also... it doesn't seem like the hidden mermaids are hidden anymore....

    and he's with them, while randoms are at the bottom of the list, on a new save started after the patch.

    It seems like there's some premade mermaids running around, cause I'm seeing your screenshot and Iona and Hekekia and Mahi'ai are also all in my game (and I know they are all mermaids/mermen)

    Never seen him in my game before but, cute! I hope my sims and him cross paths soon.

    seems this is only the case with a new save, i guess. checked my save (that's been going on for years now) and the mermaids are still hidden households. no sign of the new mermaid yet, either, but we'll see if that changes when i get around to playing someone on the island again (right now, playing a stylist-turned-fashion photographer)

    (not really related, but when checking this i noticed the patch seems to have cleared out most of my hidden households. still got grim, pollination technician, one native stray (ja + c&d), 2 of the premade mermaids (nalani is played in my game), 1 ancestor spirit (the one in a romantic relationship with one of my mermaids. the other two were culled), the flower bunny and my newest baby ariel sim (this one's an islander. i'm cool with that but will kind of miss the japanese one that was rolled for me last time)
    (temple guardians, the other strays/native strays and ghost pets, the chalet ghosts and other ghosts all vanished)

    @SimQueenie9 Alex Moyer is the sim from the game tutorial. At some point she started to be pulled by the game to populate the normal saves too.

    I was wondering what was up with he Hekekia dude as he’s shown up in every save of mine since I got IL. Interesting that he’s a merman I never would have pegged that lol.

    Huh, I've seen him around and assumed he was a randomly generated sim! Is this a new character of some sort?

    I think that maybe they/them* was added to the game in the last update, because everyone was having some difficulties finding mermaids to interact with. I haven't stumbled across them yet, tho.

    I haven’t seen him yet either. Is there a way to make mer more likely to show up? He’s pretty interesting-looking what with the bright blues and red. It’s catching.

    They are in my game too, me and my sim both like them. I just got Island Living and have been playing at Sulani, all mermaids show up in manage households. The save itself isn't new, I have been playing it for about 6 months now.

    They show up at the spice festival all time for me. I didn't find this one in my regular save anywhere though... Maybe @AngeliqueAdelaide did because she just got the ep... I just saved him from a new save and placed him into my old one.

    I kinda want him in my game, but he's not in my households lol

    Not in the old save, but I just checked the new one - they exist there as premade, not townie (game hasn't generated anyone yet) and yeah mermaids are no longer hidden.
    It's funny "uha" means fish soup in Russian :D

    Edit: Added them to my main save, they are pretty.

    The one and only.
  • SimHappySimHappy Posts: 2 New Member
    He's shown up in every game I've played in the last month or so, almost always as one of the very first sims I meet, regardless of where I am starting them. Heck, I just started a new game in Strangerville and here comes Paka'a right on schedule, 1 minute after leaving my property for the first time. Quite frankly, at this point he feels so much like a stalker that I just had to delete him this run. :P

    He's in my game at the moment though I've never interracted my sims much with him..
    I honestly thought it was a girl in my sims friends part..
