Island Living Map

Same size as Brindleton Bay. 15 lots.

Most are larger lots it seems though.

@3:30 and again at @7:30

It's hard to see all of them, but they are there :) Not every lot has a marker on it.



Larger than Get Famous which I like, Brindleton Bay/Newcrest is as small as I'd want it to get though :/

I guess the City Living/Windenburg sized worlds are behind us now.

    Simsvip posted that it has 10-12 lots like WHAT?! plus, I only see like 9 lots. Plis only 3 neighborhoods.. again. So dissapointing.
  • DannydanboDannydanbo Posts: 16,965 Member
    I counted 5 in the left neighborhood, 3 in the upper neighborhood and 6 in the lower neighborhood. That's 14 that I could see, so, I'm hopeful.

    I counted 15. 3 near the volcano, and 6 on either other bit. It could be 14 tho. There is one that I'm not sure of.

    Either way, it's still more than I feared we would get.
  • jackjack_kjackjack_k Posts: 8,584 Member
    I think there is definitely 14. Which makes it better than Del Sol Valley's 11 lots but not by much.

    I'm glad the spaces are large. But I do think that anything smaller than Brindleton Bay is too small.

    I'm happy with 14 as the spaces are open and the lots seem bigger than usual. If the lots were normal sized, I'd be angry. But for now, it meets expectations.

    I would have liked it to have exceeded them though. I'm guessing having the Volcano actively going meant less lots on the Island area.

    I'm telling myself that because it's an island, it is okay to be a little smaller than the big worlds we used to get. Do you think we got 14(+/-) lots because they are going to 64 bit? :D

    Nah. I think they are cutting back on the amount of lots so they can have more world styles. They said that too many lots in the game causes performance issues, so I think they're trying to make sure we get different types of worlds more often, then bigger worlds less frequent.

    It's definitely 14 lots from the footage! That's great actually, more than I expected.
  • DianesimsDianesims Posts: 994 Member
    I notice some lots seem to include the water, that's nice.

    Since this is an Island pack, I am glad they spend so much on the water rather than on the lots. If this was in a big city, or dessert I would be dissapointed but then again the water is fully featured in this world so I am fine

    As large as BB is perfectly fine. Glad it's larger than Del Sol though.

    Where are you seeing 15 lots... I'm counting 5 in one area 5 in another and 3 in the last what am I missing?

  • EliasLayous12EliasLayous12 Posts: 21 Member
    Yeah I also see only 9.. plis lets just not forget that only 3 neighborhoods!! Like plum .. it isnt that I'm ungrateful.. just very dissapointing
  • Akl500PAkl500P Posts: 2,276 Member
    I see at least 11. 3 near volcano, 5 in the cove like area where bar is, and 4 in the more open area. The fourth lot there can only be see later in the video it’s farther back. But it’s there.

    I think the neighbourhood in the bottom right has got 6. Therefore 14 in my opinion

    Keep in mind that those lots are surrounded by community areas. So if there are 3 hoods there are 3 such areas which probably contain good sites too. Maybe the beach(es) are on public community ground, and not on a specific lot. The volcano area might be visible and not being on a lot. Some party community ground or wild nature might be on a third public ground. So 10-12 lots might not be that bad.

    That's decent for an island.

    I keep getting playback errors. Typical.

    I just threw together a very crudely outlined look at the lots, for anyone who can't see where the 14 lots appear to be located:

    Map with no markings:

    Map with neighborhoods/lots outlined:

    Thank you!

    Okay I now see 12-13. The bottom has 4 lots not 6 I think. There is a house/building there that in another screenshot I saw has no icon or outline it’s just dressing for the map. And in the bottom towards the road I don’t know if that’s a lot or not is super hard to tell it’s so dark. Could be but might not be.

    I wanna say I think this generous for an island world. Look at how huge the map is!!!
  • SimmervilleSimmerville Posts: 6,880 Member
    Thanks! I think it looks great! :) Wondering if the volcano is located top right...

    Looks great to me! I was afraid that with mermaids, swimming, several careers, a volcano and other new gameplay features, the map itself would be neglected and only have five lots or so, and now we're getting three times as much. I'm satisfied!

    People love comparing everything to Windenburg, forgetting that the pack Windenburg came with had pretty much nothing else going for it, except the clubs, which aren't even as elaborate as they should be. I'll always take a smaller map with more gameplay features over the opposite, and this one isn't even small, it's medium-sized, still bigger than Del Sol Valley, StrangerVille, Forgotten Hollow, Magnolia Promenade and both vacation worlds.
