The Disastrous Sunlit Tides

The Legacy Lot in Sunlit Tides.

The Legacy Lot in Sunlit Tides.

So, I actually started my Legacy Challenge in Sunlit Tides, but I gave up and restarted in Lucky Palms.  I didn’t like Sunlit tides for two main reasons.  The biggest problem for me was the road system:

Sunlit Tides, terrible roads.

Sunlit Tides, terrible roads.

There’s this gigantic lake right in the centre of the town, so you gotta drive around it every single time you want to go anywhere.  Everything is so spread out it would be impossible to get anything done.  It just seemed like a terrible hassle, I can’t imagine what EAxis was thinking.

But I was really excited when I heard that the Criminal Hideout was inside a volcano shaped like a skull.  How cool is that!?

Where's Dr. Evil's secret volcano lair?

Here’s the problem: the rabbithole is at the top of a mountain, and the nearest road is at the bottom of the mountain.  So even if you get to work before 10am, it takes an hour of Sim-time to run up it and you’re marked as late for work.  Poor little Alex, with his heart set in the criminal career, would be wasting 2 hours a day climbing Mauna Loa and gets his pay docked for it!  Hardly a fair trade-off.

Even though Alexander met some friends, and the scenery was just so beautiful, the cons definitely outweighed the pros.  Next stop: Lucky Palms!

    Yeah, Sunlit Tides is so beautiful, but UGH is it a nightmare. I’ll play it again someday, when I have a Sim that doesn’t need to leave the house… not that mine get out much anyway. ha ha. I loved the blurb on the last page about an incident at a petting zoo with a lion making Alex a vegetarian. Too funny!

    I think they were probably going for an archipelago or something, but it just didn’t work for me. An island is a really cool idea, having the city surrounded by ocean instead of invisible walls, but it needs good routing or it just doesn’t work.
