My Favorite Video Game

   My favorite video game is Sims2Castaway for the PS2. You get to make your own characters, of up to six, and when your done, your crew will get on a boat the game will ask you which Sim you want to start with and then, they party, someone takes pictures, and with each picture, the battery icon gets emptier. When it dies a thunderstorm struck the boat just when they reached the tropical waters, and the party ended because they scattered in to the ocean. Luckily, nobody got hurt. The Sim you chose to start with washes up on first beach. There you get a few of the motives. Which are social, bladder, energy, hygiene, hunger, fun, and environment. In order to fill fun, you could go to the hot springs or blow a conch. Talk to people or imaginary friends, and mourn the dead to fill social. If you swim in the water you get hygiene half full, and the hot springs make it all the way full.

To fill energy, sleeping on a mat and a improvised bed gets it a little full, a provisional bed half full, but a sturdy bed three-fourths full. But hang on, the comfortable bed makes it completely full! Here is what the caption says"With its sandalwood headboard and chicken down mattress and pillow. It is probably more comfortable than the one you have back home." To fill hunger, is obviously to eat, duh. In order to fill environment, you need the most modern things available in plans. It says in the manual that the longer your Sim is on a island, the better things it expects. So environment is one of the hardest motives to keep filled up for me.
But I solved that problem by building a mansion bungalow, a comfortable bed, two bungalow sofas, three bungalow love seats, five bungalow end tables, five chairs, four lamps, an ancient Steele, three chimps of portent, four potted plants, one stove, six dining chairs, a large dining table, eight table lamps, three coffee tables, and about one hundred and twenty-five or so floor mats. My Sim's bungalow mansion has a bedroom, a medium sized backyard, a front yard, a kitchen, a moderate sized porch, a dining room, a master bathroom, an extra-large living room,and the best fire pit available in plans, which is one hundred and seventy-eight feet away from the mansion, so it would not burn down. The fire pit had to be that far away because the fire pit can get as hot as ten thousand degrees Fahrenheit. The next motive is bladder, in order to fill bladder you need to use toilet paper or the outhouse.
There are four islands, and they are Shipwreck Island, Airplane Island, Volcano Island, and Crystal Island. On Shipwreck Island, I built a mansion shack. But I kept on fixing it before the storms so it would not fall down because it was only made of banana leaves and driftwood. On Airplane Island, I built a hut farmhouse, on the beach you reached by the raft made on Pier Beach. I had a rainbow of orchids. The colors are red, orange,  yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, and white. I also had six different colors of hibiscus,that are the colors of the rainbow, too. The colors are red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. On Shipwreck Island, there is a shipwrecked pirate ship, obviously. The pirate ship is on the surface of the water, but I can get on board thanks to the extra wide plank of wood that reaches the shore. It probably came from part of the ship.
There was also one hieroglyphic on the ship. There is often driftwood on the ship. Sadly, you can't go into the hull of the ship.

On Airplane Island, there is a airplane that had crashed, obviously. It landed in the middle of the jungle and broke in half and then flew on the west side and the other side,the larger half landed in the middle of the jungle like a wall because it landed right in between two parallel cliff faces. The airplane's radio fell out of the the plane. There are about three hieroglyphics on that island.

In the heart of the jungle,there is a dark and deep cave. If you have it on Game, you can't see where you are going, or the floor. All you can see is the ponds. But if you have it on Video two, you can see the carvings, the obsidian, one hieroglyphic, and an ancient door that leads to the ancient llama temple where they have fun. But you can't go there until the next island because you need the llama crown which is the key to the door. It is funny how they unlock the door, they put the crown on their head and stick the crown into the lock and it slides open so fast the Sim had to go with the door, and at the last moment they manage to pull their head out of the door. There's also a shallow river with lots of plants.

The Tidal Pools are very shallow, but near the waterfall, it can be extremely deep, so that dangerous sharks have been known to lurk in it's depths. But, I have never caught one single shark,but I found traces of one on a piece of treasure map, because I found half of two pieces of the map from the bottom of the Tidal Pools when I preformed the ceremonial cliff dive, which was one of my many goals, and catch a boar which I did on my farm, when I trapped it at a dead end,literally. So when I got next to it, the boar squealed and my Sim got a red thought bubble with the boar's head in it. Then the fight started when they started to stir up dust so fast and thickly that you could not see them at all. But, it was short and painful, not for the Sim,but for the boar. When the fight is over the boar is gone and in it's place is a lot of ham. Which fills hunger all the way when cooked. If you catch a chicken that's another goal you can complete. Once I saw a chicken, which I scared away when I ran past  it and walked back when it flew away and picked up it's feathers. When I picked it up I got a new plan, that was a chicken coop, but when I built it was so small, that the chicken could not get in it had to stand up on top. You can serenade the chicken, and you can collect the eggs it lays for food by pressing the "X" button.
So back to Tidal Pool there are at least five clam rocks, which you can harvest clams, gold nuggets, jade pieces, treasure map pieces, moonstones, and pearls. You can catch fish like: Chilipepers, King fish, Wazoos, Cow cods, Squid, Tunas, Monk fish, and Breams. You can also catch fish with fish traps. The Tidal Pools might seem like it is completely underwater, but that is not true, it has at least three hundred square feet, but not all in one big clump, it is spread out over six islands. The largest one is the smoothest, but unfortunately not flat enough to build anything at all. The next two islands look almost the same except one has ten trees and other one has eleven trees and is much stepper. The next two are only sand, steep hills, and no trees at all! Finally, the last island is just a huge clam rock that pokes out of the water.

On Cristal Island, there is a lake, where fish is plentiful, if you leave a trap there for two days. On those days I catch five to ten fish. There is a rock outcrop with a perfect circle where you can summon ALIENS, or you can use the radio transmitter. You can harvest very useful clay and some fine sand. I like to have a race that the two competitors are hunger and energy. Energy always won even if hunger is all most empty and energy is full. There are lots of green crystals. Once there was a thunderstorm and my Sim was sleepy, so I tried to build a simple cover but since you need energy, so I could not build it all the way so I had to go to Map, and moved to Volcano Outlook where it was calmer.
