Isla Paradiso Interactive Maps
Whether you are still debating to purchase The Sims 3: Island Paradise or just wanting to find out every last detail about the latest expansion pack, I am sure you will find these two interactive maps interesting. They both feature an insight into the new town, Isla Paradiso that comes with the expansion pack.
The first map includes captioned screenshots as well as ‘fun facts’ for you to read. This is ideal if you want to get an overview of the game or to reinforce the main features of the game as well as learning new facts that you maybe did not already know, such as “Any Sim conceived on a houseboat will have a higher chance of receiving the ‘Sailor’ trait.” The first map is hosted on Stipple, an advanced photo platform allowing you to create comments and photos on your images, making them interactive. It can be found here.
The second map was created by German fansite, SimFans and provides a more extensive and visual map. Similarly to the first map, SimFans have created an interactive feature, allowing you to hover over parts of the map pin-pointed by The Sims 3 Island Paradise logo to see images of the actual houses (and house boats!) and community lots that your Sims will be able to own and visit in-game. This is an excellent opportunity to start deciding which houses you would want your Sims to move into as well as checking out all the new resorts and general atmosphere of the new town.

Also, do not forget to click on the slighter larger Island Paradise logo present on this map to zoom in on the main town square for even more pictures of lots such as the town hall, movie theater and park!
