The Sims 3 Island Paradise Expansion Pack features a new town, Isla Paradiso, surrounded by eight uncharted islands that can be discovered. When you fill the requirements, you discover one of Isla Paradiso's Uncharted Islands, and it is instantly owned by your Sim's Household.
Selling Uncharted IslandsYou can sell an Uncharted Island for profit if you know that you will not be using it.
Here is a map showing where you find all of the Uncharted Islands in The Sims 3 Island Paradise Expansion Pack.
Size is the size of the lot in edit town but not exactly the build area you get to work with when building a home or resort. For instance, the island of Plunder Cove rests on a 64 x 64 lot with a large hill taking up much of that space.
UnlockRequirementsTo unlock this Island, simply take a boat nearby and it will be automatically discovered. UnlockRequirementsTalk to a clerk at the sparkling sands resort and check in to the cheapest room available for two days.

Our Sims Forum is the place to go for faster answers to questions and discussions about the game. Mermaid Features: Swimming and DivingAs should be expected, Mermaids grow legs when walking on land and fish tails when swimming in the water. In order to stay a Mermaid, a Sim needs to Swim at least once every 48h, else they will get an 'Adapting to Land' moodlet that lasts two days. Evil and Mean-Spirited Sims can click themselves to Summon Shark, but this doesn't really do much. Because of Mermaids' inherent Diving Skill, you could go ahead and open all treasure chests that are openable based on Scuba Diving skill level and even unlock a private island pretty quickly. At present, it's very annoying getting around Isla Paradiso as a Mermaid because they prefer to swim everywhere, even with a boat for an option. When the Hydration Motive begins to decay, you'll first have a Chapped moodlet with no mood effect, but at around 10% it will change to a -40 12h Flakey moodlet. All Mermaids' favorite foods change to Kelp, and they are capable of eating raw fish on the go - so can simply catch them underwater for a snack later.
Once you've got a Mermaid in your relationship panel, you can click them and use the option Signal Mermaid to blow a sea shell horn and get them to come visit you if they're available.
Becoming a Mermaid: Mermadic KelpWhen your friendship with the Mermaid is at 70% or higher, you can use the underwater conversation option 'Ask about Fish Parts' which cannot be done on land.
If you don't feel like befriending a Mermaid, you can get Mermaidic Kelp as a LTR for 25,000 Lifetime Happiness Points. Mermaid's Secret IslandOne of the eight uncharted islands you can unlock are found through Mermaids.
Changing Back to NormalIf you no longer wish to be a Mermaid, simply avoid swimming for about four days.
Changing Tail and Shell Colors for MermaidsYou cannot edit a Mermaid's tail in normal Create-a-Sim. Mermaids have a “Hydration” motive that is fulfilled by water activities like swimming and bathing, and if you have The Sims 3 Seasons, even walking in the rain! Mermaids can eat the same foods as regular Sims, but they prefer tasty kelp and fresh fish. Each has a requirement to unlock it based on a gameplay feature that comes with the Expansion Pack.
After selling them, they become private lots unowned by you and you can do nothing with them. Each picture on this page is clickable, allowing you to see the Isla Paradiso Island Map in full size. Build Area is the estimated size of the area that is able to be used when you first receive your island.

Go to that Guide to learn more about this and the cave you need to enter in order to find the island. This will take a long time, as CPR does not count - only pulling Sims out of the water, and the job can be slow-paced to begin with. The Resort building area is tiny and the only thing I saw was a lone Fishing spot that looked decent.
Once your Sim knows one, you can Click your Sim to do an interaction to call a Mermaid to you if they're available. Two can be found using the Scuba Diving skill, and I've got pictures to help you find those map parts in treasure chests. This can take a while, so I suggest you follow the link to a guide which will help you find that bottle. Simmers who find all the Islands in IP will get many treasures, skill, and job experience along the way and unlock many spawner locations to find great collectibles. Use the form below to share your own experiences and provide helpful tips to other readers. This Guide to Mermaids I will teach you how to turn your Sim into a Mermaid, and the perks to playing a Mermaid. Mermaids are immune to Drowning death thanks to their gills and Steel Lungs would be a useless Lifetime Reward for them.
Sometimes, a Shark won't even appear anywhere around you, and if it does, it may very well do nothing when it arrives. The solution to this is to own a boat and select the 'boat here' option on the water near a place you want to go. If the Mermaid still doesn't seek water, a -80 Dehydrated moodlet will kick in, and the Mermaid will go unconscious.
If successful, the Mermaid will give you some Mermaidic Kelp, which will transform the Sim that eats it into a Mermaid. Instead, you need to buy or find a mirror and click it to choose the 'Change Scale Color' option. Mermaids are a lot like regular Sims, but they like to spend their time swimming, preferably in salt water. Their scale colors can be adjusted using the “Change Scale Color” interaction on the mirror.
It’s important to pay attention to this motive since Mermaids are creatures of the sea, they are easily dehydrated.
If a Mermaid falls in love with another Mermaid (woohoo!) they are guaranteed to have Mermaid offspring. On all but one island, sailing up to it is useless and a tooltip simply informs, "I wonder what's down there".
You can click the Island's icon in map mode to move to your new island to start a home, or convert it to a Resort lot. These are worth tens of thousands, so selling some of the Islands is definitely worth considering. Descriptions on how to unlock each, the rewards you get when finding an island are below the map.
You'll be sent on an opporunity chain to talk to an old Sim, the Science Faciity, collect 3 Kelp (grows underwater), and Firewalk.
I'll provide tips to befriending a Mermaid quickly to access Mermadic Kelp and transform your Sim, while also having the Mermaid lead you to the Uncharted Private Island, Mermaid's Secret. On my first try, a nearby Sim did pee himself in terror at the Shark that was already there, but that was the most I got out of it.
Hydration means that once every so often a Mermaid needs to get wet, either via a shower, bath, or swim in the ocean.
If you have other Sims under your control, you can easily revive them with a bucket of water. Another way to befriend them is to build up relationship high enough and use the underwater conversation option 'Invite to Land'. Simply idle, and eventually the Mermaid will come up and offer to show you the location of the Mermaid Secret Island. This will let you change what little you can about your Mermaids, but the scale colors are fully customizable so you can pick a color that you like. Female Mermaids will also be able to adjust the color of the seashell tops they wear while swimming with this interaction. Of course there is cheat to discover all islands, but this guide is directed at people who would like to unlock one or all of the hidden islands themselves.

In order to sell a discovered Island, use your Sim's Cell Phone, select Real Estate and Travel Services then Check Real Estate.
At the bottom of the page, you can Comment and share your tips for revealing the hidden islands faster!
Because of their expertise in the water, Mermaids automatically get level 10 in the Diving skill upon aging up to teen but still need to complete the Skill Challenges. You can also buy the 5,000 point Lifetime Reward Permanent Mermaid, which will prevent your Sim from ever losing Mermaid status to lack of Swimming. Mermaids will dry up faster in the sun, particularly when the temperature is 90 degrees or more when you have the Seasons Expansion Pack. Nearby Sims may also help, with Good or Friendly Sims guaranteed to help, while Evil and Meanspirited Sims will simply walk by or enjoy the show. Once you've met a Mermaid, they will appear in your relationship panel and you'll build a relationship with them. If your relationship is high enough, they'll even come to your home so that you can perform better social options and boost the friendship faster. That way, your one Sim can use his Mermaid buddy to help you turn the entire family into Mermaids.
They can swim faster, stay underwater indefinitely and, if they have the Evil trait, they have the special ability to Summon Sharks!
First they become chapped, then they get flakey (eww!) and finally they collapse from dehydration. Most of these Islands are good for private homes or Resorts, while others have treasure as a reward for revealing them. Many Sims 3 players will unlock them and choose a favorite to start a new home or build a massive luxurious resort with an amazing ocean view. Given the annoyance of finding them, I created a page with information on getting the last two map pieces to unlock the island.
As Mermaids are naturally attuned to life in the water, they do not suffer Decompression when they are done with a Dive. Keeping hydrated in a bath but never going for a SWim will eventually cause a Mermaid to transform back into a normal Sim. Both of these options are preferable to meeting many Mermen underwater and talking to them as they come, hoping to build a relationship.
There is no treasure chest on the island, but there is a nice 30x30 plot of land on which to build a lovely home.
When your Sim loses his or her Mermaid abilities, they will still keep the level 10 Scuba Diving skill experience they earned during the transformation.
If this happens, another Sim needs to revive the Mermaid by pouring water on them otherwise they’ll get a visit from the Grim Reaper! If a lot has been converted to a Resort from Private Lot, its sell value will plummet so only convert if you'll build a good resort there as you cannot change it back to a Private Lot. After some time has passed, you will get a moodlet with -5 mood which says that you need to go in saltwater. When I get Island Paradise, I'll just do testingcheatsenabled and meet all mermaids and befriend them. I'm not sure what went wrong but it only hydrates them when they have a bath or shower not when they swim in the ocean. Before I did so both my sims were best friends with one or two mermaids each and they hanged out alot. I don't know if anyone has said but yet you can unlock Plunder Cove by buying a map from your lifetime wishes list for 25 000 I think. But sometimes there all human, it changes all the time for me :( Has anyone tried the siren household? Ive got my girl a mermaid ( by befriending another and them giving me the kelp) but I cannot find him. To build on a discovered island:Go to map view (press M), find and click on the floating icon of your owned private lot. Shes just getting ill, and runs to the wc :( i have tried to eat the mermaidic kelt like 10 times! But this time the message was different and she said if you want to be like me eat this kelp.
