Two days, two different clues from the Gurus! Today, SimGuruCopeland shared this “lunchtime” photo and caption. I’m pretty sure this means we’re getting some OFB content soon!

Given that Island Paradise is the tenth expansion in the Sims game, I’m going to assume that by now most people at least know what it’s about. If not, basically the Sims is a person/people simulator. You create your Sim and their family, drop them into the world and go for it. You can get jobs, pay bills, and watch as your Sim grows. So tenth time around, what new bag of tricks does the Island Paradise bring?
Firstly, you have a whole new map to play around in; one that actually feels a lot larger than previous expansions. As the title implies, the new map – Isla Paradiso – is a tropical paradise that comes complete with uncharted islands, beaches and diving spots.
Electronic Arts has gotten plenty of mileage out of its third-generation Sims games, so those virtual beings are more than deserving of a good vacation, and now players can finally pack them off on one. The Sims 3: Island Paradise takes the number of expansions that EA has released for the game into double figures, and switches the action to a luxurious private island.
While it’s becoming increasingly challenging for the studio to create dynamic new content for a four-year-old game, the ocean-themed activities introduced in Island Paradise do just enough to sate the fanbase’s hunger for new features.
Meet Kari Noble. She’s an athletic, friendly, punky type who loves water so much she would probably marry it if there were any chance that at least one religion wouldn’t deem it a mortal sin.
She moved to Isla Paradiso on the basis that a tropical archipelago was probably going to be more fun and more interesting than either a standard sleepy town, a city infested with vampires, or France. She packed up her things, bought a houseboat, and decided to make a new life for herself here.
