This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
11/21/11: A lot of people have said that the stove is acting strange so I re-uploaded it since it was working fine in my game in case I had uploaded an old version by accident. Please re-upload.

Castaway Part 3

Included in this set are the following 7 items:

Campfire (cloned from and works as a firepit)
Rock Stove (self cleaning Hunger: 9)
Makeshift Bookshelf
Banana Tree
Rock and bamboo refrigerator (hunger: 8)
Sink with garden hose
Rock counters

See all the pictures at the bottom of the post and be sure to check out parts 1 and 2
Part 1 http://www.modthesims.info/d/457515
Part 2 http://www.modthesims.info/d/458137

First off,
I am uploading the counters as a separate package just because they are really fussy so you can decide if you want them. I debated on leaving them out of this upload but the in-game counters just look SO out of place with everything else so I wanted you to have the option of having them if you like. Here is how to use them correctly:

First of all, you will see 2 counters in your catalog...use the SECOND one. (TSR bug creates 2 and the first one is wrong). Place as many as you like in a straight row. THEN when you want to turn the corner and start placing them (like in an “L” shape) you have to be very careful NOT to let the next piece turn into a “corner” piece. In other words, you need to place it a little bit away from the end piece. As soon as they TOUCH, it turns into the default textures and looks crazy and you have to delete them. It's really not that bad if you just be careful not to let them become “corners”. I have disabled the “automatically buy another” option to help avoid accidental touching.
*See pictures below

A little more description:
Rock stove: I don't know how she is heating this stove but by-golly I like it anyway...maybe the hot sun?? Recolorable (one channel)

On the fridge, I redid the food inside to look like what one might find on an island, some coconuts, a coconut "drink", a bunch of bananas, and some fish...REALLY wish I could give you a good look at the inside. Check it out! (I don't know how she lifted up those stones...)

The rock sink is simple but efficient. Somehow, she has found a hose and is pumping the water up to the rock. (Use your imagination. lol) I love the way it looks hanging into the pond. I wanted it to look more like a depression in the rock than a sink (which turned out to be more difficult than I had imagined but I think it still turned out okay.

Cost is 5 Simoleons each piece

Where are they?
Everything is found in their respective places (sinks, etc) but to keep everything organized and together, everything is also listed under miscellaneous decor as well. That way, when you're building your island, it's all right there together.

Will they work for your setup?
I am pretty sure that everything is base game compatible with the exception of the hopscotch which I believe is a generations item. If you don't have that simply unzip everything, drag it to your mods folder and then delete the hopscotch piece. No problem!

*If you want the cool little hose in the water effect, it is very easy to do that. Enable the cheat "moveobjects on" first. Then build the pond. Make it pretty deep or the hose won't look as good. THEN place your counters holding down the "alt" key to get them pretty close to the pond. Then, lay down your sink.

What can you do with it?
Feel free to recolor it, retexture it, or anything you like. Just please credit me for the mesh.

Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
