Need a specific item from the crate? cheat for The Sims 2: Castaway


Need a specific item from the crate?

If you need a specific item from the big wooden crate that washes up on the shore next to your shelter area, here's how.
1) Get to a point where you are happy to save the game and you know the crate will be on the shore.
2) Continue playing and open the crate. If you don't like what you got then quit and go back to the Sims 2 Castaway main menu without saving.
3) Go back on your game and go and open the crate again, and it will be a different item or even a piece of driftwood or palm frond!
4) If you don't like it, quit without saving again and keep repeating until you get what you want.
YOU WILL NEED PATIENCE FOR THIS- But if you're desperate, I would suggest you keep trying because this has got me out of loads of situations where i have to spend HOURS searching for an item!

[color=red]For finding a log just cut down a tree. Just be careful which tree you cut down. I always like to replace it after I cut it down.[color=red][/color] [/color]

2 get a shovel just wait and play game like usual. (Complete goals) Ms weeder broke her shovel. (Aka spade) After you complete most of her goals, she gives u a piece of shovel. Then u trade, find, or someone gives you the other piece. (I Forget which) I think you find it. There is only 2 pieces to it. Be patient. When you got both the spade handle and the spade head, you can make it on the crafting rock. Hope this helps.
