Need a little pirate flavor for yer building dreams and legacies? Look no further than this treasure of an island! Make yer scurvy Sims walk the plank bridges, for there be no cars allowed, just dirt trails (actually have sidewalk, which may be visible when game first loads, but should become more see-through as you zoom in/start playing) or goin' their own way through the neighbors' yards. There be falls and caves and spawners for them creepy bugs and squawky parrots should ye have the Pets expansion. Trees come from them World Adventure places as well as them Ambitions ones.
Thar be no CC required (though some be optional), and the Cap'n was sailing under the flag of Pets 10.0.96. (Translation for pirate-deficient:Made with Pets expansion, version/patch 10.0.96)
Map Size: Small
Lot #: None
Layers: 9- Effects, Rocks, Trees, Fish Spawners, Seed Spawners, Rocks & Gem Spawners, Bug Spawners, Junkyard Spawns, Digsites & Misc Obj, Small Pet Spawners
Fish 109 (ok I got carried away, I like fish) - Base Game, Late Night, Common Egypt (Pirates and crocodiles get along like a house on fire)
Seeds: 36 Base Game Only
Bug Spawners: 110 (because pirates need incentive t'keep their beards tidy) Base Game & Late Night only
Small Pet Spawners: 83
Rock and Gem Spawners: 58, Basegame and LN only
Junkyard Spawners: 8
GENERIC Digsites: 6
Terrain Paints used: 7
Sims cannot go onto the steep, heavily planted mountains/hills, and can only access the tiny island via things like dive wells.
Camera can go everywhere on the island, and pretty much to map edge out at sea. I rounded the map corners to prevent stuck cameras in them.
The routing in picture vanishes under some thick forest areas, but it IS properly routed, just the trees are types that overhang, as it's a sort of hidden trail.
Optional Custom Content (not required, is just a few beach things):

A few more things to note:
*The sidewalk once fully in game is visible as those dirt trails- in my thumbnail they show up much more than in game, since I wanted to show there were actual sidewalks.They use a custom opacity level to render them invisible other than the dirt terrain paint, but as noted above, they WILL usually be super visible and ugly when you load the map for the first time, but will vanish as you play other than the occasional glitch when at distance.
*That itty island in the center eye can only be attached to rest of the map for Sims to explore using WA dive wells for lots you build.
*Remember you need BOTH .rar files and have to unpack 1 first- here is a better explanation than I previously gave for how to un-rar it as a multipart download: http://www.modthesims.info/wiki.php...ulti-part_files
*You are free to share savegame files if you build up lots or play legacies or the like. You may NOT put the world file itself anywhere-- send folks here to get it! You can also use it in any contest screenshots, storytelling or movies you make with credit.
*I will be making a version with some lots later down the road, it will not overwrite this blank world should you get them too.
Thanks to everyone in #create for encouraging me, giving me feedback & letting me cry on their shoulders when my PC melted for a while.
Much love to Inge and Peter Jones for which let me do crazy things like make junkpiles placeable outside of lots!
Also thanks to folks on the CAW forums for having so many great ideas, and figuring out how to do things to make worlds built better, especially SimSample who unlocked a bunch of goodies for use in CAW like the hitching posts.
