Lucky Palms, Sunlit Tides, and The Sims 3 Late Night – Via SimGuruSarah
Our reader Nathanial has completed Lucky Palms’ and Lunar Lakes’ Box & CD Art. We previously posted on his completion of Sunlit Tides, and now you can have the complete collection!
I have uploaded all the images to my Flickr account, so click here to view & download!
After seeing the introduction film I was amazed by this new world. What would I do first? Playing with a new family? Creating a family by myself? Where was the Wishing Well and where could I find the infamous casino? These questions were going around in my head and my eyes were bigger than normally. This world was fantastic!
We have discovered an issue that can occur when uninstalling Lucky Palms. If you uninstall Lucky Palms an error can occur that causes the launcher to crash on start-up.
We are working on a fix for this issue. In the meantime, if you plan to uninstall Lucky Palms please remove the World and be sure to uninstall the Heavenly Bells Slanted Columns individually via the Launcher (see steps below)
If you have uninstalled Lucky Palms and you are encountering a crash please delete the DCCache folder found here: Electronic Arts\The Sims 3
This will remove all installed content, but it will resolve the crash and you will be able to reinstall content via the launcher.
If you have any questions please post here and we will do our best to help.
To uninstall Lucky Palms:
1. Got to the Installed Content tab in the Launcher.
2. Search for the Heavenly Bells Slanted Column and select these assets – there are 3 – individually in the Launcher.
3. Find and select the check box for the Lucky Palms world as seen below.
4. Select the Uninstall button and wait for the uninstall success confirmation dialogue.
The Sims 3 Lucky Palms is the newest world to The Sims 3 Store, released on June 28, 2012. Lucky Palms is a world that is very different from other released store worlds such as Hidden Springs or Lunar Lakes, as we finally received a desert world other than the desert world in The Sims 3 World Adventures. Lucky Palms is far different from Egypt in World Adventures, by a lot in fact, because Lucky Palms includes way more for your Sims to do, plus your Sims can actually live and work in Lucky Palms.
The world has a unqiue story to it just like all other worlds in The Sims 3. While I won’t go into too much detail on the story, at one time the world had many lakes but a few of the lakes have dried up around a part of the world, which your Sims can also live near. Lucky Palms comes in two versions, a standard edition and a gold edition. The difference between them is that the standard edition does not include The Lucky Simoleon Casino where the gold edition does. By having the casino it allows for your Sims to make a little extra simoleons (gold).
Starting A New Game
Since Lucky Palms was a new world, it was time to start a brand new game! I knew a little bit about what to expect from seeing the multitude of screenshots and reading the information, and also attending the live chat, but seeing the world in person through my own eyes I was very impressed. While the screenshots do show a lot of the great detail that went into the world, the screenshots don’t show everything. In fact the screenshots don’t even do justice once you’ve seen the world in a new game.
