or REMOVE a member.You can also click DONE here once you've finished
compiling your crew.
For now choose ADD a Member:
A new screen opens for you to choose Female or Male. You can then either
customize that Sim by selecting Customize, or you can click on Generate
Random Sim to have other options. Once you have found the Sim you like,

Stomach and Arms and Legs), Morph Head (nose, eyes, face shape, mouth, and
chin), and Hair Style and Color.
Fashion Head (hats, glasses, makeup for females-facial hair for males),

accept it. Click Done then enter your last name the same way. Click Done when
If satisfied with everything, click Accept and it will return to the original
screen and show your new Sim on the Boat. You can then either add more or
choose to start your journey alone.
++++ Selecting Starting Sim
If you add multiple Sims, pressing Done will prompt you to select a Starting
Sim. This will be the Sim you begin with once you shipwreck. Use the D-Pad to
move left and right and put the green diamond over the head of the Sim you
wish to begin with, then press X. It will ask you if you want to start game
with this Sim, click Yes. It will then ask if you wish to Save before
continuing. Your choice here!
Then game will then begin by showing random snap shots showing your Sims
having fun on the boat. It will then end with a snapshot of your Sims going
++++ FIRST BEACH
You will wake up on a beach alone with the message:
"The Sims have Shipwrecked! Find and unite your lost crew. Help them get
Home." *** You will only have a crew if you created more than one Sim at the
start of the game. If you only created one Sim, it will just be you and the
monkeys on the islands, so you WILL NOT have a crew to rescue.
You immediately get the Book of Survival and are asked if you want to read it
and play the tutorial. Click "Yes." ****Even if you say No, you still can't
leave this beach until you complete Basic Survival.
The Tutorial is as follows:
Survival Tip 1 "Survey your environment" using L joystick."
Survival Tip 2 "Gather supplies." Harvest anything off beach and trees.
Walk up to something and press X to gather. If more than one option appears,
use D-Pad to highlight option then press X to select it.
Survival Tip 3 "Eat!" As soon as you pick up first item your Tip 3 will
come up. Walk up to a coconut and use D-Pad and X to select "Eat."
Survival Tip 4 "Sleep" As son as you eat something Tip 4 pops up. Energy
Motive can be filled by sleeping. Press O to see your tools. Use D-Pad and X
to select the Sleeping Mat. Then select "Sleep on Ground." ***Notice the cool
parrot that flies to your side while you sleep! Also note that your Sim will
not sleep outside in the rain!
Survival Tip 5 "Fire Saves" After you sleep Tip 5 will appear. Press Start
to pull up menu. Use X to choose "Plans." Use D-Pad and X to choose "Firepits
and Stoves, then choose "Emergency Fire Pit. ** You cannot build Emergency
Fire Pit until you've collected some Driftwood.**. Next, use left joystick to
move the hand to the spot you want the fire pit, then press X to build it
there. Now press the Triangle 3 times to return to original screen. Now walk
over to the fire pit and choose "Build Pit" then choose "Light Fire."
A word about Fire You have a few choices when you walk up to the Fire Pit,
so allow me to explain them:
Collect Ash you will want to do this as you can later use it to make a
Cook Meal that's pretty self explanatory
Sit Sit increases your Music Motive
Build Home Tiki once you build a Home Tiki you then have to go to it and
select "Declare Home." This isn't too important until you get to the second
island and start finding your crew. A Home Tiki will allow you crew to know
where to return to. It will also allow you to hand out jobs to everyone.
More on jobs later.
That's it! Basic survival is now complete to the point that you can venture
on to other areas. Before doing that though there are a couple of things you
First, gather all of the supplies you can from this beach, and then build a
workbench. To do this just approach the two large rocks you see sitting close
together and select "Craft Bench." Once you do this you will unlock building
plans for the Shell Axe, Bamboo Spear, Torch, Rope, Twine, and the Tiny 1x3
Shack Roof (since your Sim won't sleep in the rain this roof comes in handy
as a quick shelter).
Second, now that you have the Bamboo Spear, you should go ahead and catch and
cook a fish. This will make the entire Basic Survival complete and unlock the
plans for the Bamboo Fishing Pole. Trust me, this makes fishing so much
easier and often rewards larger fish than the spear will.
To do this, walk into the water by the fish until you see the "Spear Fish"
come up. Press X and you will automatically pull out the spear. Now wait
the fish are close in front of you. Practice makes perfect and you'll have
timing down in no time. Press X again when you want to spear the fish. Once
you catch one, return to the fire and choose "Cook a meal." When the
Ingredient menu opens, press X to choose and ingredient then R1 to scroll
to the fish. Press X again to choose the fish and X a final time to cook it.
Now that you have cooked a fish, it should be the second time you've eaten.
Once you eat two times the Bladder Motive unlocks. To use the bathroom press
O to bring up the menu then choose the Toilet Paper. Once you've done that
choose, "Use Toilet Paper" and your Sim will go to the bathroom.
You will also see a message pop up saying "Be Goal Oriented." To stay sane,
your Sims need goals. Lost books provide these goals. Goals can be checked in
the main menu or are listed here by island AND by book.
Ok when you are done getting all you can from this area- eat, go to the
bathroom, then sleep so all motives are full. Then go to the left side of the
beach where the two silver feet are and click "Explore."
***For reference so YOUR left and right match MY left and right
"Left" or "Right" side of a beach, I do so from the point of view of being in
the water facing the beach.
A couple of quick side notes before you set out
Harvesting non-food items increases your Body skill.
Harvesting Food increases your Cooking and Logic skills.
Socializing increases your Charisma skill.
Building / Crafting increases your Mechanical skill.
You will encounter "unknown" plants and trees in all areas of the game.
select Identify and your Sim will taste it. If it's non-edible food he will
throw up after doing so. Harvest it anyway as everything in the game has a
Be sure to befriend chimps! Start off by making sure you have Banana's in
stock. Give a chimp a banana and your Social Motive unlocks. Use other
with the chimp until you reach the Friend level. That chimp will then gather
for you and bring you green packages of supplies. When a chimp approaches you
with a green package, simply choose "Respond" and the chimp will give the
package to you while your Sim automatically gives your chimp a banana. This
will also serve to complete the "Befriend a chimp" and "Get a chimp to gather
for you" goals as well as unlock plans for Chimp of Portent art.
It may not seem as if your chimp gathers much, but remember, the more chimps
you befriend, the more chimps you have gathering from you. If you have a
the chimps they befriend bring them packages as well! It really adds up!
If you happen to miss getting the package from the chimp, search the ground
around the area you are in. They tend to drop them if you don't take them.
Bottled messages show up on the shore almost everywhere. Be sure you pick
them up and read them. Some are funny and some may even be from your
There's also a Treasure Map piece that will appear randomly in one of them.
Once you've read the message you will want to keep the bottle by selecting
"Put it away." You can use it to make glass later on.
Crates will sometimes was up on shore. Smash them open to recover lost
shipments of clothing, garden gnomes, etc.
Harvesting Clams yields clam meat, metals and stones for making jewelry, and
even a Treasure Map piece! So be sure to harvest them whenever you can! They
will look like a rock sitting under the water and when you swim over them it
will say "Harvest clams." Click X to harvest them.
Once you have visited a place it will appear on the map located in the Pause
Menu. You can then use the R Joystick to move the cursor over the area you
wish to go then press X to select it. You are automatically sent to that
location which saves some major travel time! If you want to go to a different
island just use the L1 or R1 buttons to shift back and forth between islands
on the map.
++++ DEEP JUNGLE
You start off with damaged clothes, less energy and new clothing plans
unlocked. You also complete the "Explore the Jungle" goal.
The very first thing you want to do here is to walk straight, pass the big
boulder on your right, then pick up the Hieroglyphic piece near the
There are a total of 9 Hieroglyphic pieces throughout the game, and you will
need them to access areas later on. (**See this guides Hieroglyphic Location
Now, since you cannot gather any wood until you have the axe, you have 2
Take time to explore the jungle and harvest as many supplies as you can. Be
sure to keep motives up or your Sim will refuse to gather/harvest supplies.
Get as many vines as you can! Trust me, you're going to need them!!
Gather enough supplies to make the axe, return to First Beach and craft the
axe at the Crafting Bench, then return to jungle and harvest wood along with
all of the other supplies.
It really doesn't matter which you do, though the latter would make more
When you harvest Rattan, new clothing plans will unlock.
Once you have the Stone Axe all wood you harvest will be Softwood. Stock up
now because a lot of these trees will later switch to Hardwood and Softwood
becomes scarcer. If you check the Plans section of this guide you will see
just how much Softwood is used!
Once you have gathered all you can from this area, move to the top part of
jungle until you see the silver feet and go on to Shipwreck Lagoon.
++++ SHIPWRECK LAGOON
When you first arrive here you will receive the Shipwrecked" book with new
The first order of business here is to walk onto the deck of the ship and
retrieve the 2nd Hieroglyphic piece.
The only other thing to do here is to gather all you can including
Now head back the way you came in, only instead of heading right and back to
the jungle, head left to Pier Beach.
++++ PIER BEACH
The first thing you will want to do is to get the 3rd Hieroglyphic piece from
beside the stone pillar.
Now grab the King Loofalava statue from beside the second stone pillar.
If you choose to "Inspect" the right pillar you will receive a new goal to
reach other islands. This will also unlock plans for a raft. The raft
50 Bamboo, 30 Vine, 10 Palm Frond, Mechanical level 2, and Body level 2. If
you do not yet have all of these items go and gather them. If you have been
gathering then the Body skill won't be an issue. However, if you haven't been
building anything, the Mechanical skill level will be.
What I usually do is to go around the entire island gathering supplies first.
Then I return to First Beach and build/craft the 1X3 Roof (this unlocks new
shelter plans, bed plans, and the Comfort Motive). I then build an open
Improvised Cot, and Bamboo Spear. Between all of that and the Emergency Fire
Pit, Stone Axe, and Original Crafting Bench built earlier, this is usually
enough to get my Mechanical Level beyond 2.
Once that is done, gather all you can from Pier Beach. Then rest up, build
Raft, and select "Explore."
** The first time you sleep in a bed your Fun Motive will unlock, as will
plans for Music Shaker and Sand Buddy. **
You will notice a few goals you were not able to complete on this island. Not
to worry as some of them will have to wait for the 2nd and 3rd islands!
++++ WEST BEACH
As soon as you land on this beach you receive the Log of the Final Voyage
and new goals.
At least one crewmember should be here on this beach. Great them and it will
fulfill the "Find a crewmate" goal and unlock plans for the Death Daisy
(brings a fallen Sim back to life). Your Hygiene Motive will also be
For now though you can only swim to bathe, but you can choose different
hairstyles and facial hair.
You cannot control other Sims until they join your tribe. To do this you have
to get your social level with the Sim to around 25. You can choose from the
following original options to do so:
Nice Admire or Cheer up
Play Tell Tall Tale or Joke
Talk Argue, Brag, or Chat
Points can be added or taken away just as in Sims 2. The more points you get
the more options there are to choose from. Once you reach around 25 the
"Special" comes up. When you choose Special it will say "Ask to join tribe."
If they agree that goal is complete and better furniture plans are unlocked.
(I've never had a Sim tell me no). Once they are a part of your tribe you can
then ask them to leave the tribe by following the same steps. Only this time
under Special it will say "Ask to leave tribe." Once a Sim is a member of
tribe you can control them and assign them jobs.
I always find it easiest to get the crewmate to join your tribe right away.
Otherwise they sometimes wander off and you have to find them all over
Now that that is done you should gather what items you can from this beach.
As you wander take note of the boulder sticking out of the rock wall in the
small cove to the right of the beach where the Pineapples are. It sits just
beside a Soybean bush, and you will need to return to this spot later in the
game once you have collected all of the Treasure Map pieces.
Since Sims will not sleep in the rain and there's a lot to do on this island,
I usually build a good shelter with a bed, 2 tables (1 as a dining table, 1
as an end table by the couch)(**Building a table unlocks plans for Improvised
Decorations and Lamps), 2 dining chairs, a lamp, couch, and Hut Stove.
I also build an Emergency Fire Pit and a Home Tiki. I then declare this Home.
You can build a Home Tiki anywhere you wish and declare it home. It will
simply make this one inactive; so don't worry about not being able to do so
By doing this now you give yourself and your crewmates a place to fill their
motives. If your crewmates don't have that they will die. When they do have
they will take care of themselves if they are tired, hungry, etc. It will
let you assign jobs to your Sim. To do this, simply walk up to the Home Tiki
and choose Sign up for a job. It will then list the jobs (Gather Food, Fish,
Cook Food, Collect Resources) and you choose the one you want. You can then
use L2 to change to another Sim and do the same so they have a job. Then use
L2 again to change back to yourself if you wish. Your other crewmate will
carry out their job whether you control them or not.
Once this is done I gather all items that I can from the beach then go
++++ AIRPLANE JUNGLE
This will fill the "Find the Jungle" goal and unlock your Room Motive.
The first thing you will want to do is to go up to the airplane wreckage you
see just ahead on your left and put the Airplane Radio into your inventory.
If the radio is on, turn it off and it will then let you put it in your
Make time to befriend these new chimps so they will gather for you.
Be sure to harvest Ti Leaves, as they unlock more clothing plans.
Here you should be able to harvest Hardwood for the first time. This will
unlock plans for the Hardwood Crafting Bench. Be sure to build all Benches as
you get the plans for them because they all have their own items and tools.
Harvest everything you can from this area then go into the Dark Cave (Look
for the cave opening with Silver Feet above it. Since this is not a large
it's very easy to find.).
++++ DARK CAVE
"Find the Cave" goal is now complete and Obsidian Tool plans are unlocked.
First go near the door with the round circle in it (it's the only door in the
place). Pick up the 4th Hieroglyphic piece lying to the left of the door.
You can inspect the door now if you want, but you will need to return later
Next, go to the pond with the fireflies above it and get the Prince Loofalava
statue that sits to the right of the pond.
Go around and pick up all of the stones. If you have the tools you need,
harvest Obsidian. If not, don't sweat it! Head to the second pathway to the
right of the 3 small ponds. You will see a small path leading up hill with 2
small pillars at the bottom and Silver Feet at the top. Once you've rested
(just sleep in cave using your Sleeping Mat), explore here next.
++++ SKULL ROCK JUNGLE
You will see a Skull Rock face to your right. On the ground slightly to the
left of the face is your 5th Hieroglyphic piece. Pick it up.
Hug the rock wall and head to the left of the face until you find the clay
deposit. Harvest clay.
Harvest everything in the area especially Sisal as you need this to make
Rope and Twine. When you've finished, locate the grassy trail with the Silver
Feet above it. It should be just about perfectly opposite the Skull Face.
Take this trail to the West River Plains.
++++ WEST RIVER PLAINS
You are now given Moneywells Book of Survival 2 with new goals. New Shelters
and Farming Tools are also unlocked.
I found my 2nd crewmate here.
Get Chicken Feathers from the ground when a chicken runs off. The first time
you collect the feathers new clothing plans are unlocked.
Build a Chicken Trap and Trap a chicken. It may take a while after you've set
the trap to actually trap one. You just have to keep trying. I would trap
than one so you can use one to eat and use one to harvest eggs. You will be
able to build a chicken coop later on and harvest the eggs from it. **If you
don't have a trap built yet you can always build another Hardwood Crafting
Bench in this area to be able to make one.**
Harvest everything in this area. There are a lot of new fruits here.
When you're ready to move on to the next area you have 2 choices: craft a
bridge or climb.
If you wish to climb go to the Silver Feet to your right and climb done.
This takes a lot of energy away from you though.
If you wish to craft a bridge then go to the Silver Feet on your left.
Approach the stones and select Craft Bridge. You will need 10 Rope, 25
10 Softwood, Mechanical Skill Level 4, Logic Skill Level 4.
Crafting the bridge builds your Mechanical level and requires less energy to
cross. This is the route I take.
If you don't have rope yet, build a Crafting Bench and craft some here so you
don't have to return to the beach. There's Sisal in this area too if you need
++++ EAST RIVER PLAINS
Walk straight ahead until you see stone pillars on your left with Silver Feet
between them. Note you cannot cross here yet due to the quicksand. Face the
pillars then look left just past the Sisal plant. It's your 6th Hieroglyphic
piece. Grab it.
In this area you will meet a Wild Boar. Follow him or stand in his way and he
will fight you. If you win you get plans for Boar clothes and a scarecrow
unlocked, the Hunt a Boar goal completed, and a big fat ham to eat!
Harvest/Gather all you can from this area then go ahead to South River
++++ SOUTH RIVER JUNGLE
Go to your right until you see the Plane Wreckage. Cut away the vines then
walk a step or 2 forward until you see the Transmitter. Put it in your
Proceed straight past the plane to the small shoreline, take 1 step into the
water and look to your left. You will see your 7th Hieroglyphic piece lying
the water. Pick it up.
Now look back along the shoreline to your right. You will see the Princess
Loofalava statue on the other end of the beach. Go pick it up.
Head back to the plane and take the path to the right with the Silver Feet.
This leads to East Beach. Harvest all you can from this area then head on to
++++ EAST BEACH
You have now fulfilled the "Find the other Beach" and "Explore the 2nd
goals. You have also unlocked new plans for Home Decorations and Musical
This is also where I found my final crewmate.
Go to the far right side of the beach where you see what looks like a pile of
sand and pick up all of the Stones. If you have a hammer and chisel you can
harvest the Pumice (sand pile) now. If not either craft a bench and make the
tools or just come back later to get it.
Once you've harvested all you can from the beach, inspect either of the stone
pillars. It gives you a new goal of getting to the volcano and unlocks plans
for a canoe. Crafting the canoe requires 50 Softwood, 20 Bamboo, 10 Rope,
Body Skill Level 5.
When able, craft the canoe, rest up, and then head for the Volcano. Your
crewmates will automatically follow so don't worry about them.
All goals up to this point should be completed except:
Assemble Radio Transmitter
Send an SOS from High Ground
Build a Sea Worthy Boat
Fish a Shark
*** I personally don't harvest eggs or build crops until the 3rd island, but
you can do it now to complete those goals if you wish.
++++ SOUTH VOLCANO BEACH
"Reach the Last Island" goal is now complete. New shelter plans are unlocked
and you receive the Biscuit Isle book with new goals.
Go to the far right side of the island and look behind small boulder with the
pink and yellow flowers in front of it. There you will find the 4th and final
statue the Queen Loofalava statue. This completes the "Find the 4 Statues"
It would be a good idea to go ahead and build a small shelter, beds, fire
and home tiki here so your crewmates can maintain themselves and not die.
If a crewmate does die go to their grave (it will look like a rock) and
Once you do that you will be able to pick the Death Daisy. Go to your Bamboo
Crafting bench and craft the Death Daisy Potion. Return to the grave and
select "Resurrect _____" and your crewmate will be brought back to life.
Harvest all you can from here then explore up the hill to Volcano Jungle.
++++ VOLCANO JUNGLE
Here you receive the Pirates Guide to Retirement book and new goals.
Circle around the path until you see the beehives, then focus on the small
ledge behind them. There's a hot spring there. Climb the small hill that
to the ledge and head towards the hot spring. About halfway there on your
is your 8th Hieroglyphic piece. Pick it up.
Once you have that, go get into the hot spring. You will find a piece to the
Treasure Map. Get out of the hot spring. You've now completed the "Find the
Hot Spring" goal.
Harvest everything in this area including the Honeycomb from the beehive. To
do this you must have the Torch. This will allow you to first Smoke Out the
bees. If you don't you will only get stung and no honeycomb!
Once you are through continue on to the Geyser Plains.
++++ GEYSER PLAINS
Head straight up and to the right until you see a large stone door with
feet above it. Just to the left on the ground is the final Hieroglyphic
Pick it up. The Hieroglyphic Stele plan is now unlocked. When these are later
forged together they fit inside the rectangular space you see on the door and
a new path opens. You will need the original Crafting Bench, Hammer, Logic
Skill Level 9 and of course all 9 Hieroglyphic pieces to forge the Stele.
Once you've finished harvesting everything in the area head to the cliff by
the steam geysers and Silver Feet. You will notice you cannot yet pass here.
Just to the right of the Silver Feet is a small path leading up a small hill
with a large boulder on top. Approach the boulder and choose "Inspect." You
must have the hammer and chisel. If not, go craft it. Your Sim will chisel
rock so it falls below to cover the geyser so you can pass. Now head back
to the feet and you will see you can now pass. Rest up then head to Volcano
++++ VOLCANO OVERLOOK
The first thing I do here is make this my Home place. It's the largest area
in the game where you have room to build the largest house (the Bungalow
Mansion). It also has a lot of area for planting a garden, building a chicken
coop, and a lot of foot to harvest. It also has a beach nearby and an awesome
Harvest everything in this area, place a chicken trap, then explore. There
are 3 paths to choose from. North Volcano Jungle on the far left, Ancient
Stairway in the middle, or Summit Trail on the far right. For now you should
go to the Ancient Stairway. This leads to the Llama Temple Exterior and
completes the "Find the Llama Temple" goal.
++++ TEMPLE EXTERIOR
"Find the Llama Temple" goal complete.
Before going up stairs to the temple, go to the right and harvest everything
there. Then return to the stairs and head straight across to the Ancient
++++ ANCIENT THEATER
Harvest everything here then go to the Cliff with the Silver Feet. It's the
Ceremonial Platform. Select "Explore" to perform the Ceremonial Cliff Dive.
This completes your "Study the Llama People" goal and unlocks Tribal Face
Paint and Clothing Dyes plans.
Once you complete the dive it will tell you that you found a piece of the
Treasure Map but a Shark ate half of it. Swim to shore and fish until you
catch a Shark and retrieve the Map Piece.
Swim to the Silver Feet through the cave like opening to move on to North
++++ NORTH VOLCANO BEACH
"Find another Beach" and "Explore 3rd Island" goals are now complete.
Harvest all you can then go through the opening near the Ancient Pier. Ignore
the Ancient Pier for now.
++++ NORTH VOLCANO JUNGLE
Harvest everything from this area and then take the path at the top to
++++ VOLCANO OVERLOOK
Head back up the Ancient Stairway to the Temple Exterior
++++ TEMPLE EXTERIOR
This time climb the stairs and enter the Temple.
++++ TEMPLE INTERIOR
Your 1st order of business is to climb the stairs on left or right then walk
up small ramp to the Metal Forge. It almost resembles an old stone piano.
Approach and Repair it. This unlocks Metal Tool plans and completes the "
Repair the Ceremonial Forge" goal.
The ground will then shake and a message says "A new island has risen from
sea near Pier Beach." Glass set plans are now unlocked. You won't be able to
craft metal tools just yet, as you need metal ore to do so.
For now go sit on the Throne for a couple of seconds then walk behind the
throne. Pick up the Crown you see on the ground behind it. "Find the Llama
Kings Crown" goal now
Go near the right temple door and pick up the Monkey Horn. Playing it fills
the Music Motive and Creativity level. For now just put it in your inventory.
Now go to the Map and go back to Shipwreck Lagoon on Shipwreck Island.
++++ SHIPWRECK LAGOON
Use the Crafting Bench to craft the Ancient Stele from the Hieroglyphic
You can find it under Leisure plans.
Once you've done this, use the left path to go to Pier Beach.
++++ PIER BEACH
Go into the water before you get to the Raft and swim straight out to Crystal
Island. Swim until your screen says "Crystal Island." You will then be taken
++++ CRYSTAL ISLAND
Go to crater with all the Fireflies around it and get the Treasure Map piece
out of the center of it.
Harvest Clay and Fine Sand and pick up any Shells, Driftwood, etc are in the
area. Harvest the Clams then return to the Map. Go back to the Temple
++++ TEMPLE INTERIOR
Start off Inspecting the door to your right as the door to your left only
takes you back to Geyser Plains. Your Sim will put in Stele and the door will
open. Explore. It will take you to Volcano Summit.
++++ VOLCANO SUMMIT
As you arrive on the top of the Volcano you will once again feel a rumble and
fall to the ground. You will also get a Treasure Map piece.
Once you are able to get up again harvest Metal Ore. Harvest everything here.
By now you should have all of the Treasure Map pieces. If not you should only
be waiting on those that come in a chimps pack, by harvesting clams, or by
message bottle. Continue to do those things until you have all of the map
pieces. Once all of the pieces are yours, use the map to return to the Dark
