Island Paradise: SimGuruMeatball’s Statue


Via SimGuruMeatball

A picture of the IP statue that I made. Below is concept art showing how it progressed to the final one. The statue also holds a secret …

    a secret ? hmmm the lever to release the kracken :mrgreen: maybe treasure

  2. catloverplayer says:

    A way to call mermaids?


  3. Jude says:

    From the progression it looks like it might be the fins turning into feet? Maybe at different times the statue is a mermaid and at other times it had two feet?

    Is it just me or does the statue seem inspired by the big Jesus in Brazil? I know there are other Brazillian influences in this EP, so that’s why I’m thinking that.

    1. Jude says:

      NM about the mermaid thing… on closer inspection it looks like a snake somehow eats the man/becomes him?

      As a Brazilian, I’ve been thinking about that a lot. There are many little aspects of it that I can relate to things I’ve seen in coastal cities around here (I live in São Paulo, not on the coast) – wether it’s the Carnaval costumes, the macaw statues hanging from the ceiling or even a big statue on a hilltop “watching over” a city.

      But I still think Isla Paradiso is a huge mix of Latin/Carribbean references. The architecture, for instance, is not Brazilian at all.

      My first thought when they released the first pic with the statue

  4. Gabe Simmer says:

    It reminds me of the Weather Stone… :/

  5. Warner says:

    maybe it is a reference to Lost, and Jacob lives on the island.

    1. Jewel says:

      What lies in the shadow of the statue? Mermaids maybe.

      1. Warner says:

        I doubt it is connected to mermaids, otherwise, it would be a statue of a mermaid.

    2. Ellie892 says:

      Love this idea :)

    3. Shamanta says:

      Maybe it hides the hatch lol.

    4. Addy says:

      I also thought Lost when I first saw that thing. :D Would be so cool if it had something to do with Lost. :3

    This makes me excited somehow.

  8. niac1234 says:

    It’s so unrealistic, but I don’t care, but it’s so cool! :D

  9. Denise says:

    I wonder if it transforms. Like from picture A-D

    1. Al says:

      Yes, maybe as you “discover” the hidden islands it transforms. So you know when you’ve found the last one.

      1. niac1234 says:

        I’m guessing that it’s not difficult to discover a new island. All you have to do is look for fog.

        1. Warner says:

          fog might also cover unsailed waters…

        2. Al says:

          Lol, yeah but never underestimate how stupid EAxis thinks we are.

          1. SIMplyTheBest says:

            Sometimes I think we are a source of laughs to EA. Esp when they see us try to guess or hope for things that won’t be in game…

  10. MidnightPearl says:

    it may release another eerie creature perhaps, that EA hasn’t told us yet, maybe the Kraken isn’t the fearless creature that lives on the bottom of the ocean, maybe there’s something else(and it’s not a mermaid either), but something more mysterious! :)

  11. Jess1281 says:

    It almost looks like a fire breathing lizard man on the last design (D) …Godzilla?????

    1. cindy says:

      i think is medussa with her snake head turning your sims into stone when the look at her

      1. Jess1281 says:

        look at it really close on flikr….It’s a snake, the fork tongue…The scaly body starts to appear, or a snake eating the man. Perhaps the anamorphous features weren’t included in the final draft. And everything on the left without alphabet are just different designs of American statuary before non-natives landed there. One looks almost Aztec, Mayan, Early Peruvian…

  12. cindy says:

    but i hope we will still get the monkeys back from sims castaway

  13. Vitani says:

    Can’t any of the people who got it prematurely tell us what it does?!

    1. Vitani says:

      LOL I though this was for dragin valley not IP :P

  14. Lisa says:

    Looking at each one from right to left: looks like it evolves from something with a tail to a more modern man with a advanced weapon.

  15. dru says:

    Looks like there is a building behind the trees..and the statue is on some sort of there is an outcropping someone could stand on under the statue. maybe a ruin or something behind the trees? Not sure cant get close enough to see.

  16. deedee says:

    I know I’m in the minority, as a lot of people hated him in Sims 2, but I hope the Yeti comes back in this EP. Maybe you summon him with this statue, lol!
