I'm playing with the Vanilla save in this world and I'm having tons of fun! Thanks so much for making this updated Sunset Valley. It's already one of my faves :)

A few things I noticed:

My sims float above waterlevel when swimming or snorkeling on dive lots. The scuba buoy also floats above water level, which is causing it.

Screenshot-17.jpgScreenshot-19.jpg

I followed this to fix it for myself: https://simsvip.com/sims-3-island-paradise-guide/creating-dive-lots/
Basically lowering the level under the scuba buoy and then levelling the terrain to that level. Grab the scuba buoy again and let it sit on the water instead of floating above it. Then use flatten lot so that the lot is on sea level again.
My sims don't float anymore now, but the downside is that it was a lot of work (some objects need to be moved or else the lot can't be flattened there) and the diving lots don't look as pretty as they used to, because the lot is completely flat now. I can make it uneven again of course, but I'm not looking forward to that tbh  ::)
Maybe this can be fixed in the new update? I would love that and wouldn't hesitate to start a new game in this world, I really like it!

Another thing I noticed: sims got stuck under the front porch in the Hart household. Super strange. It kept happening until I bulldozed their house and gave them a new one.

Thank you for the compliment and the info. We are aware there are some issues with the dive lots such as the buoys being above water, and Sims swimming above the water line. As seen here.

This seems to be a bug with dive lots that are added to any town or save file from the library. As is the case with the dive lots in SV2020, they were copied over from IP.

Regardless of that, I did add some links in our FAQ section about the issue in case any other players run into it.

   Jaga (The creator of the saves) hasn't been around for awhile, so I don't know if the issues will be fixed or updated.

LTW - Grand Explorer and SV2020
« Reply #143 on: February 28, 2021, 02:19:48 PM »
Hello.  I stopped playing Island Paradise quite some time ago because of the lags (I wish I didn't have the lag issue because I feel it would be my favorite expansion game).  But I have a question regarding a particular LTW:  Grand Explorer.

I have never tried it, but I am intrigued.  I see that it involves discovering hidden islands.  I haven't played IP for quite some time because of the lag issue.  However, I do wonder if that LTW option is available in Sunset Valley 2020.  I see that the game has diving spots like IP does.  Does it also have hidden islands as well?  Is it a possible LTW in SV2020.  I guess I can research on my own, but since you (Jaga and Mrs Flynn) created SV2020, I thought I would just inquire directly.

Thanks in advance.  Skip

There isn't any hidden islands in the SV2020 save files, but did find it's possible to add them by saving them from IP to the library and then placing them into your save file.  - Add hidden islands.

Disclaimer: If you try adding any OR all the islands to your save, it's at your own risk. We don't know what one island will do or if they'll all fit, as most if not all of them are quite large in size.

It's my understanding that towns that don't have at least one hidden island or more elements of Island Paradise gameplay won't be able to master the Grand Explorer Lifetime wish.

SV2020 is not big enough to add all 8 hidden islands to the map along with having all 4 of the dive spots. Besides, trying to do so may be too much for the game to handle, specially for such a small map such as Sunset Valley.
