As Prima didn’t do a large guide for Island Paradise, community guides are becoming more and more important to help players with their games. And, in my personal opinion, they are generally more detailed than Prima’s guides.


Carl’s Sims 3 Guides are great for helping you with anything from the base game to Island Paradise, and that’s what this post is about! Carl has created complete guides for the game and we’re highlighting some of them right here.

Discovering Uncharted Islands

Finding Map Fragments

Scuba Diving

All of these guides tie together to help you unlock most of the Islands, only one of them is not covered by the guide.

If you find anything awesome in the community that deserves to be in the community spotlight, then get in touch!
