Castillo Caribe

No 3rd party CC, No CAP Checked with Custard(Sims3PackCleaner)
Please Note that Custard may show lot cover pictures and in game pictures as corrupted even though they are not. 

60 x 60 A d.n.a. request. A spacious family home for your Island Paradise. 7 bedrooms including master en suite, 2 teen rooms en suite, 2 child rooms, 1 guest or butler room and a large nursery. 10 bathrooms, large open living room w/entertainment areas, kitchen w/ informal dining, formal dining, 2 room study, play room, 2-car garage, basement gym, rec. room, skills room, basement "secret" magic room, utility, greenhouse w/crops, open yard area w/playground, courtyard, pool w/bar, basement hot tub. Built for 77 Paradise Rd. If you use the new lot placement feature to off center the lot, the ceiling tiles may get messed up. I recommend leaving it centered. Also, I placed the dishwasher in the bar and it works perfectly but if you look inside you can see the cabinet. Not a big deal I hope, but I wanted to mention it.

I always thoroughly play test and consider that if you don't have all of the proper EPs, SPs and store content, things may not work as I intended. That being said, if you have any issues please do let me know. I strive for quality and any helpful feedback is appreciated.

Let me know if you get in game any of the doors or windows seem really bright. It looks like I have a glitch in my game that is making my doors and windows really dark. I didn't realize that is what was happening while building this so I may have brightened indoor windows and doors too much to compensate.

  1. I had just peeked here before opening my game & "voila?" you had a home up, LOL! I am so glad I was able to get IP game this past weekend.
    (Almost wasn't able to. It came out the day before my B-day & didn't get it til days later. Better late than never!)

    But anyway, things inside the home looked great. I only had to fix the garbage cans. For some weird reason, they were all stuck in the wall! So weird, huh?
    Thanks again! I am going to try to make a sorry-looking houseboat for now, til I let her buy the house you made. It will take most her money if she buys it now cuz I am forcing myself not to use money cheat. I named her "Carmela Latte" (I'm a coffee addict in RL. But ONLY good coffee :D )

    I want to make a water-park/boardwalk, but it's going to take forever. The ONLY thing I think it might have missing is rollar-coasters. Really glad I have all the exp & stuff pks now. Even the cheesey Katy Perry items pack & circus items from the Store will be handy now. Island Paradise was the finishing touch to make an awesome Water-park. Unfortunately, I really stink at building, so don't know how end result will be. But gonna try :D

    I was wondering, would you ever consider making a blue, white, & yellow themed Nautical house?
    I love your Tropical Serenity and was looking to use a smaller home for my Sim to use as a vacation home. I tried to make one, but it came out looking like all my past, "cookie cutout" homes *crying*... When I see what you have made, I am dying to see your version of a beach-house dominated by blues, white, yellow. I just moved from my house cuz it was sorry looking. And left behind THREE money trees *really crying now* , LOL.
    I think IP was seriously lacking homes that were good because they expected most to make/use houseboats?
    (srry I rambled again).

    Thank you!

    1. Thanks! I have no idea about the trash cans. Which ones do you mean? I only had the three in the garage. You may mean the hampers in the bedrooms? If you didn't have the one I used then it would have been replaced and that can cause moo issues.
      I would say request a nautical themed home from d.n.a. but it would take quite a while since the list is pretty long. I'm assuming you want the house sooner rather than later! I am working on some personal builds but one is a modern and one is a boathouse. Like I said you can request and make me the preferred creator but we go in chronological order so it could take a few months. Have you ever gone to Creative Corner to shop for houses? There are a ton of great artists who may have built one like that already. I'll keep a look out for you. I wish it didn't take me so long to build or I would try to whip something up. What size are you looking for and I'll see what I can find.

    2. It was the small silver trashcans (like the one given already there when you get a barge to build a boat on.) Only took a minute to fix. What clothes hamper did you use?
      BTW, forgot to tell you I loved what you did with the rug in kid's room with ship bed. I always hated "animal-killed"-shaped rugs. But you made it look like water splash under bed. That was GENIUS!
      AS far as what I was looking for, it's a simple & small nautical/beachy home,(without being a "country cottage"). I am trying to build one again, but the way they keep looking the same, ughhh!!
      You should see the boat-house I was working on last night. It's soo sorry looking. You would die laughing! I put a tiny pool with waterfall inside the boat on 2nd floor. My Sim must hate me. She barely has room.

      My to-do/"build list" is:
      water-park/amusement-park(w/boardwalk), tourist/seaside shopping mall, nautical beach house.
      Wonder how far I get...

      Since I still haven't been able to upgrade my PC, gotta hope it all holds together a while longer.

      I look forward to your next home!

    3. We must think alike though. I have a pool and fountain in my house boat too! :)
      It must have been the bayside hamper that I used was replaced. You can see what I used in the store list I provide, fyi. I know I didn't use that trash can so it must be that. :)
      It sounds like you have a quite a list there!

  2. On this lot I lag a lot in buymode and a little in play-mode, why?

    I can play other big lots with lot of decor et.c without any lag at all and I can play all your other lots but this one makes me lag, what shall I do? DO you have any idea what may causing it?

    1. I don't know. I have had a lot of lag since the new EP. It doesn't seem to matter what size lot I'm in. I did use a ton of items and water items in this lot. I know the fountains and things can add lag. The only thing I can think of is for you to delete any items you don't need and see if it helps. I hate that it's lagging for you. I think lighting can add to the lag so it may help to delete the invisible lights on the top levels. Other than that I don't have a clue. :(

    2. Another thing about these huge lots, if you give it some time to warm up the lag might go away. At least it did for me. I hope you can play with it. If I find out anything more I'll let you know. I do know that the fog that hides the hidden islands is causing a lot of lag for people so that may be contributing.

    3. Ok so a lot of people are having lag now that I came out. Maybe some of these options can help. Let me know if they do and I'll do the same.
