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.
