Default Castaways Hacks, Cheats and Custom Content?
Has anyone figured out what works and what doesn't work in Castaways?

I have read that new MESHES will work for objects and clothing. And some hacks will work.

But I have not seen any of this confirmed.

I tried doing "family funds" and I got a nasty message :howdy: (LOL) so I guess that doesn't work.

Aging on/off is suppose to work.

Any hints as to what does work would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

I am having a devil of a time making some of the Skills rise - the chess table doesn't (on the community lot in Free Play) raise logic as it is suppose to and it is driving me crazy

I didn't really want to add all of the $50,000 that is Motherlode - just about 1000 - hmmm

mappam, try 'kaching'.

I would like to clear up the little matter of my sanity as it has come into question. I am not in any way, shape, or form, sane. Insane? Hell yes!

People keep calling me 'evil.' I must be doing something right.

In Free Play 'moveObjects on' is not working for me. Does any one know if the is a cheat like this that does work the same?

I would really -strongly- advise against using ANY hacks in Castaway Stories (or any of the other Stories series games), especially ones that do as much as the InSIMenator. InSIM has to be updated for each expansion pack just to prevent usually pretty serious conflicts and game errors caused by it - putting it into Castaway is probably a Very Bad Idea. Just because it shows up and has some things that work doesn't mean that it's not causing issues and errors elsewhere.

But there is no mod for Castaway ! Why ?

What is the problem ?

Because it's not a very popular game with modders, and it's really not worth the trouble to mod it when it's so limited. Sure, yeah, it's fun to play through the story - once. Once you're done, it's basically just like a cut-down version of TS2. May as well go back and actually play TS2.

I do kind of wish that someone played it enough to figure out how to put the waterfall onto a personal lot once story mode is done, or else how to make that lot available.

My favorite lot and i can't get to live on it for long.

Reyn, look here:

http://www.insimenator.net/showthread.php?t=80875

I changed the Shady Lagoon (the lot with the waterfall) to a residential lot with the SimPe, and uploaded the file there (page 2). Credits go to Lady Moiraine, for her tutorial.

You have to save the original lot of hood 0001, and paste the uploaded lot. If you finish the story line, and still want to play there - you will find it still with the castaways tents (those who chased Jessica from the lot).

Arogers has made the castaway waterfall buyable and it apparently works in the Castaway Stories game. You can get it at MATY in Peasantry and the thread title is CS WaterFall.
