So, after reading a few tips on the internet, I was finally able to create my very own houseboats in The Sims 3 Island Paradise! It took me a while of searching though to be able to create one.
As the title suggests, you obviously need the Island Paradise expansion pack!
Note: The below steps are for moving your Sims into an empty houseboat lot, and build the actual house from it.
Note 2: This works best when playing in the Isla Paradiso world that came with the ep!
Here’s how to do it:
- Select the family that you want to move in.
- Click on the lot that looks like a dock. A pop up window will appear, asking you to select the size of the houseboat you want.
- Pick your size, and click on the big tick button. A dialog will appear, asking whether you want to purchase the lot. Select purchase.
- Now, you can start building your home on an houseboat! Build it however you like!
You can read this tutorial, which will give you more in-depth details on how to build a houseboat.
Hope this helps you in building a houseboat in The Sims 3 Island Paradise!
