Yesterday I didn't resist, I bought Paradise Island for 5$, but the game is unplayable in this city. Can someone help me? I don't know what to do I want to be able to play in this city. I'm desperate...

    Almost no one can play the Isla Paradiso world that comes with the EP without fixing it up first. It's very pretty but hopelessly design-flawed. There's about 10,000 threads on this forum about this dating back to when the EP was released, but they are now a bit more difficult to find in the combined Expansion Pack section.

    It is not required to play in that world. The content will work in other worlds -- though dive lots are difficult to design and the water must be deep enough to allow for them. Most worlds with waterways can handle boat routing, resorts can be placed anywhere. There's loads of player-designed tropical worlds available without all the design flaws. Many regard Isla Paradiso as a "Serving Suggestion," with examples of what can be and maybe should not be done with the EP.

    But if you want a fixed up version of the world all ready to play as a saved game together with pages of documentation explaining what was done to fix it for the Do It Yourself crowd, thanks to @ciane here on this forum we got that too. :)

    Edit: In case this all sounds familiar, we just provided this information on your prior thread the other day.

    A few years ago when I bought this EP I was reading comments and I was surprised that game lags and glitches, everything always worked perfectly for me.
    However, now it's not even in the launcher anymore.

    I installed the game on my new laptop (there were no mods or CC) and it's not there. I tried EA "solution" about deleting EP10 folder and installing again but it's not helping. I noticed the absence of this EP on my old laptop too and tried deleting this folder and no luck. Does anyone have any ideas on how to fix it?

    @Dag - Is this an Origin controlled install? If so, EA may be blocking the EP on their end either because you have purchased it from an unauthorized reseller and were given a "bad" code to use, or possibly for no reason through some kind of mistake. Either way, a real time discussion with customer support would be required to see if there is something that needs to be reset on their end or if a new code is required to get the EP to show up for you again.

    @igazor yes, it’s installed trough Origin. I will contact with EA then. Thank you for your response 😄
