The Great Extracted Castaway Stuff Collection
Cross-posted from my Tumblr.

DOWNLOADS (two parts because MediaFire is dumb):
Part 1
Part 2


A small update to the Castaway Stories collection. There are 16 floors in the CS build bundle that conflict with floors that are found in the Life Stories build bundle that Argon @ MATY made. This updated bundle fixes those conflicts:

Download here.

I won't be updating the main download as it's very huge to reupload, and you only need this update if you also have the LS stuff in your game. :)


This is a collection of ALMOST* all the extracted Castaway Stories Stuff for TS2 that I was able to find.

Most of it is from MATY, but there's also a few other sources, like Gwenke, HugeLunatic, shastakiss and HoneyWell. I've tried to find the best and most functional versions possible of everything.

I've also made a few fixes myself, like making sure the modular stairs show their price and description in the catalog, and updating the bookcase, potty, changing table and mirrors to have all EP functions.

I've also done some slightly unortodox recategorizing of some objects. This is because I started sorting them to my own liking, and was about half-way through before it occured to me to share this. Hopefully you won't mind too much.

NOTE: There is some stuff in the architecture folder, which you can recategorize into Deco/Misc or something if you don't have AL or M&G.

There's also two collection files, one for build (walls/floors/doors/windows/columns) and one for buy/build mode objects, which should make it very easy to find things. cs_corefuncs.package is a file that's required by several of the objects Pescado extracted, keep it somewhere that makes sense.

There is a separate folder with all the recolours for objects that are already in the game.

Clothing, hair and full face makeup is also included (and it all works), as well as a few custom foods, and hyena dog breeds.

You can put the Build/Buy stuff in your Bins folder to remove the custom content stars. CAS stuff is decustomized, and is labelled as BV content - DO NOT DELETE THEM IN CAS OR BS.

Remember to put the script files for the modular stairs in the correct place. If you don't know how to do this or what the Scriptorium is, please google it.

* I say ALMOST everything because I have excluded objects that didn't work correctly, or that were cloned meshes from the main game where the only difference was a recolour, as this seemed redundant. There's also no default replacements of any kind, or careers included.

If anyone finds anything that I've missed, please let me know! If things don't work right, and they're not any of the objects I mentioned fixing above, keep in mind that all of this stuff was extracted by lots of other, talented people who are not me, and it's very possible I won't be able to fix it. But you can let me know anyway.

I'm still at work, but I sense a download urge coming ... ;)

Thanks a bunch for all the effort you put into your work. "If you want better working stuff, get it at Meetme's"

Thank you so very much for these - they will be very useful! :)

Thank you for collecting and uploading the Castaway items! I appreciate the time you must have spent doing this. :)

Oh my goodness, meetme, this is amazing! Thank you so much for sharing this! :D

Wonderful. Thank you so much.

Thank you so much for sharing this~^^

Thanks for this. When it comes to the clothing, did you by any chance use these: http://silvainshadows.dreamwidth.org/11967.html

I didn't use the sexyfeet meshes, but I did find the missing texture file in that thread. :)

Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU!!

This is WONDERFUL, thank you!

Wow. WOW. This is amazing. I just downloaded and extracted the files and ... I'm completely overwhelmed. There is just so. much. stuff. For a Maxis-match hoarder like me this is a dream come true.

Thank you so much for tracking all this down and putting it in one convenient place! <3

I'm pretty late to this party, but thank you for this! I was looking for the CS raft for storytelling purposes, and this greatly simplifies things for me. Awesome work, as always! :)

You're welcome - although I believe that's unfortunately one of the few things that's missing from this collection! Let me know if you find it, and I can add it at some point.

Haha! I realized that after I went looking through the files, though I wasn't entirely sure it wasn't just me and my lack of ability to find it. :P The lack of raft hardly takes anything away from the awesomeness of this collection, as I'm sure much of this will come in handy at some point (and I often think about setting up a CS style island to play someday).

I went searching some more and found a version of the raft here. So now you can add it. :)

Sorry, I'm very late for this party but thank you to make those many file to 1. or maybe 2. 3. I searching all around the web about this and I took me maybe 3 days to finish all the downloads. I download it and I think it is very helpful. I downloaded this because I want to make a Build-A-City Challenge to be more, realistic. More thank you!
