I know I said I'm gonna return to the Sims when TS4 comes out, but after seeing the promo video of Island Paradise, I just couldn't wait anymore...
Being away from TS3 for almost 2 years, I've missed so much! The last EP I bought was Generations...My PC is getting really old, I now have only the base game, Generations, Island Paradise installed and it's already making this horrible sound like it's gonna crash any moment...So even though I really want to get all the rest EPs and SPs right now, I can't, unless I buy a new computer...
Anyway, Isla Paradiso is amazing!!! I only played it for 3 hours - didn't get to do a lot yet, but I'm totally amazed and hooked!!! I think Island Paradise is probably the best EPs so far! Well, maybe next to Seasons.
☝meet Chikako Sims AKA the sim me - the main character of all my TS3 game plays.
I chose "love to swim" as one of my traits for the life in paradise, even though in real life I can't even swim...but hey, that's the wonder of the game right? We get to be whoever we want to be.
|Isla Paradiso City Hall|
The first thing to do is of course to get me a resort! You have to go to city hall to purchase a resort.
Welcome to Hobart's Hideaway! It's very shabby chic and it's for free, a really awesome start for me since I'm gonna be spending most of the moneys on my own house...I dunno what to name it, so I named it R&R #lame I know...
|in the lobby acting like a real receptionist...|
|is everyone in Isla Parsdiso more good looking or was I away for too long? haha|
|*dive into dumpster* is this action from Island Paradise or Pets?|
|I wish I could do this in real life...it sucks that it's only 17 degrees here in Holland|
|I can't dive yet, my scuba diving skill level is too low...|
You can boost your skill level by snorkeling or taking a class at the science facility.
Can't wait to play with the mermaids and swimming for my life from the sharks LOL
Life is too good in Isla Paradiso! Now I too want to have some tropical R&R in real life...
