Sims with the Child of the Islands trait have the ability to Summon Island Elements in Sulani, which will trigger an event called “ Commuting with Sulani Elementals. ” This will make a few Elementals appear for the Sim to interact with. however, this event alone lasts a few hours, and once it is over, the Elementals will disappear .

Those who have the Child of the Island trait may besides “ Ask For Judgment ” to see if the Elementals approve of how they honor the island ’ sulfur traditions.

The raw loon career has only one shift option : 5pm-8pm. Sims have to use one of the deep water system bouys to purchase Diving Gear to receive a promotion in this career. As of the fourth dimension of writing this guide this is a little glitchy, indeed wait until it directs you to buy the items.

Odd Jobs

Looking to earn a little excess income ? Pick up you telephone ( or log on to your calculator ) and put your skills to work with all raw Odd Jobs.

You can find your current ace Rating at the top of the Odd Jobs dining table .
Having a higher Odd Jobs evaluation will grant access to higher paying gigs. Two Sims with different ratings may see different jobs when they check the Odd Jobs Board. Odd Jobs are available from 8am-8pm and reset casual. Any of the Odd Jobs a Sim selects or completes during the day will not be accessible to other Sims .

There are two main types of curious jobs, based on when the subcontract begins. The beginning type are listed as “ Begins ASAP ” and the authoritative thing to note is the recommend skill ( found at the bottom of each number ). once selected, a Sim will just disappear for a few hours as they head out to do the odd subcontract. It ’ south significant to make certain Sims suffer the minimal recommended skill .
The future character of odd jobs are listed as “ Needed By ” and the important thing to pay attention to is the job description. These listings are normally in search of a specific detail like a coconut. Once an item is acquired, use the mailbox to send it to the client and complete the curious job. These listings often give a match days to complete the request, but Sims can only have one active leftover job at a time. therefore until they fulfill the request or cancel the odd job, they will not be able to work any extra odd jobs .
To select an odd occupation, snap on the list you want then click the check mark button in the bottom right. The Odd Job details will then appear in your Sim ’ s career control panel .
If Sims select a “ Needed By ” job, tax details are at the bed of the Odd Job detail panel. once Sims complete all the listed tasks, they will get a notification of their performance and be paid for the work. To cancel an Odd Job, snap on the pan can icon in the Odd Jobs control panel .

When build up sandpaper sculptures, Sims will create one of 5 types of sculptures. They can then use the “ Monster Stomp ” interaction, or if the sand slowly blows away, Sims can then use the “ Restore ” interaction on the sculpt to bring it back to its original shape .

When using the beachcomb interaction, Sims will find random buried treasures and the newly seashells available for solicitation. This interaction will yield some of the rare treasures that Sulani has to offer. Sims can besides opt to beachcomb for trash if that ’ s their matter .


There is nothing more relax than the strong rays of the sunlight on your skin. now Sims can click on a loiter chair, pool float, or beach towel and choose to sunbathe. There are three options for sunbathing : “ Sunbathe in Current Outfit ”, “ Sunbathe in Swimwear ” or “ Sunbathe in Nude. ” Mermaids besides have a fourth option to “ Sunbathe in Open Water. ”

❗ Island Living introduces realistic suntan lines. This means if Sims sunbathe, they should choose their outfit carefully as tan lines will appear in the shape of their clothing.

There are a few exceptions to keep in mind when it comes to sunbathing. Sims won ’ thymine be able to sunbathe bare if there are any children around, and Child Sims can not sunbathe at all .
Sims besides won ’ thyroxine be able to sunbathe if the sunday is not out. ( This besides applies to cloudy days or during regretful weather if you have The Sims 4 Seasons Expansion installed. ) last, there are certain skin types – peculiarly the more abnormal shades of blasphemous, green and grey – that will not tan or burn .
Mermaids may be able to sunbathe in one shape but not the early based on their bark tone. other Occult Sims like Vampires and Aliens, will not be able to sunbathe in either of their forms as they will receive a notification that states “ This Sim ’ randomness skin is incapable of tanning. It must have some weird properties. ”
It ’ s significant for Sims to keep an eye on how farseeing they are sunbathing, or the sun might turn from ally to foe. One way to prevent cauterize is to keep an eye on Sims. When a red aura appears with a tense “ Starting to Burn ” moodlet, cancel the sunbathing action. bankruptcy to cancel the sunbathing action results in the uncomfortable “ Burning ” moodlet, which means it is besides belated for the Sim to stop the sunburn .
Sims can help prevent burns by choosing the “ Apply Sunburn Protection ” self-interaction. This will protect Sims for 12 hours, and rather of burn off, Sims will stop sunbathing once they ’ ve achieve that perfective sun-kissed search. perfect tans are not always perfect with pranksters around though…
Sims can besides use the “ Prank Sunbather ” interaction to ruin a tan. This will apply an uneven level of sunscreen to the sunbathing Sim, which will create random pathetic tan lines once a Sim tans or burns while sunbathing. If that Sim stops sunbathing before having time to tan or burn, then the prank will have no impression. Likewise, if the sunbathing Sim applies Sunburn Protection after being pranked, it will cancel the effects of the prank. While Child Sims can not sunbathe, they can Prank Sunbathers. lone Sims sunbathing on bring ( such as a towel or lounge chair ) can be pranked. Sims sunbathing on a float are safe from pranksters .

Sunburns and Tans will only last a few days. To fix a error or to give Sims a more lasting spirit, there is a flying way to cheat the perfect tan. Using “ testingcheats true ” you can right click on your Sim to see the unavowed whipping options menu. Select “ Sunbathing Options ” and you ’ ll see a choice of “ No Tan ”, “ Tanned ”, “ Sunburnt ”, or “ Lock Tan/Burn ”.


Sulani ’ s waters offer even more adventure for those tidal bore to explore the coral reefs and ocean depths. There are two types of buoy, the shoal urine buoy and the deep water system buoy. The trench water buoys are red on top and allow Sims to free dive. shoal urine buoys are fleeceable on top, found near coral reefs and allow Sims to Snorkel .
Sims will need to reach Fitness Skill level 3 to unlock diving interactions, but Mermaids do not need to meet this necessity. Sims will not need a specific Fitness Skill to Scuba Dive, but they should be careful about swimming in the cryptic waters as they can drown .

❗ Child Sims are not able to dive.

  • Rebreather (§750) – This item unlocks Scuba Diving for Sims. Unlike Free Diving, there is not a Fitness Skill requirement for Scuba Diving. Once a Rebreather is purchased, Sims can Scuba Dive immediately. Mermaid Sims do not have the option to Scuba Dive since they already have the ability to Free Dive.
  • Underwater Camera (§1,000) – This is used to collect 10 unique photographs for your home. Sims can only use the Underwater Camera if they own the Rebreather (or are a Mermaid). The Underwater Photo Collection is not considered an official collectible so you can’t track your progress in the Household Collections menu.
  • Treasure Tool (§1,200) – This is the most expensive item, but allows Sims to search the ocean floor for valuable buried treasures. This is the fastest way to complete the new Buried Treasure Collection and can be used with or without the Rebreather. Once Sims own the Treasure Tool, they can choose to Free Dive or Scuba Dive for treasure.


Sims and Mermaids who purchase a Spearfishing Gun will be able to spearfish in the cryptic waters then long as they have at least a flush 4 Fitness Skill. This is a new way for Sims to catch pisces in the game and complete their Fish Collection .

Unlike regular fishing, spearfishing is a time action that may yield merely one pisces. Sims will have to choose to do the spearfish interaction again to continue catching pisces using this method acting. Spearfishing will besides help raise a Sim ’ s Fishing Skill.


Amidst the coastal waters you ’ ll spot a few shallow urine fleeceable buoy. Sims can click on these buoys and choose to “ Snorkel ” or “ Snorkel Together. ” Unlike Sims, Mermaids can not snorkel as they will receive a presentment that states “ Mermaids would never…be catch snorkeling. very taboo subjugate .. ”




Dolphins can be found Living in the waters of Sulani, and with the right field conditions set, can be interacted with around buoys throughout the world. There ’ sulfur a luck that a Sim might randomly find that a dolphin approaches them while swimming around a buoy, but if the dolphin is not a fan of the Sim, it will swim off. If a Sim is approached, they will be given a chance to learn more about this gorgeous sea animal .

When looking for a dolphinfish, it ’ mho best to look out for the aquatic bodily process surrounding buoys. sometimes dolphins will swim in groups, and when they do, there is typically a school of fish that will swim near the surface of the water. Clicking that swirling pool of fish will give the immediate to “ Call Over Dolphin ” that allows Sims to interact with a dolphinfish. Sims will need to be quick with their interactions as dolphins don ’ deoxythymidine monophosphate stick around for long .
Sims can build up their kinship with dolphins by performing different social interactions, some of which are unlock as the friendship develops. Once friends with a dolphinfish, a Sim can specifically call for them at buoy .

The surveil interactions are available with dolphins :

    • Jump
    • Kiss

Sims will typically see the classic “ gray ” dolphins out in the ocean, but there are two extra dolphin types that can be found : Albino and Azure .
albino Dolphins are a rare species that can only be found in Sulani once it has reached its most thrive state of conservation. These beautiful creatures are lighter than other dolphins and have a flimsy pink tone to them. Sims can befriend albino dolphins fair like any early dolphinfish. They, besides, can be found around buoys .

last, Mermaids are able to call over the special Azure Dolphin while in the ocean. azure dolphins have a blue tint to their paint, and because of their oceanic connection, mermaids are probable to become Soulmates with these dolphins. Mermaids are besides probably to develop a kinship with all dolphins promptly, making it easier to interact with them .




Sims may besides encounter sharks while treading body of water. Sharks will appear at random and give Sims random moodlets as they swim nearby. The more uncomfortable moodlets can make swim in the ocean more probable .

Image Name Policy Effect
Controlling Invasive Fish Invasive Fish species can be sold for twice their value and will become harder to catch.

Invasive Fish species are pushing native species out of their ecosystems! A bounty should be enacted to reward fishermen for catching these invasive fish. It doesn’t matter where they go after they’re sold, as long as they aren’t in the ocean anymore… right?

Consult on this policy to regulate the population of invasive species by doubling the value of the wanted fish. The policy includes Celestial Grouper, Carp, Perch, Goldfish and Lionfish.

Managing Overfishing Fishing is prohibited between 12:00PM and 8:00PM, except during approved events. Sims caught fishing illegally can be fined.

Recreational fishing is driving a lot of fish species into endangerment. To help with repopulation, fishing needs to be banned from 12PM to 8PM. Only morning or night fishing allowed! Of course, professional fishermen are exempt during work hours, and approved local events may continue. No need to start a riot.

Consult on this policy to regulate fishing hours and give fish populations the chance to grow. There definitely won’t be troublemakers and rebels to deal with. Definitely not.

Coconut Rebate Households receive Simoleons everyday for coconut plants growing on their property.

We’re experiencing a global coconut shortage! We must incentivize local gardeners to grow coconuts. Everyone loves coconuts! Too much, it seems! The coconut industry cannot fall!

Consult on this policy to regulate coconut production by giving a stipend to households with fully grown coconut plants. Coconuts!

Supporting Organic Produce All produce is now grown organically. This makes food more expensive to cook, but may leave Sims feeling Energized after a meal.

Organically grown produce are far more sustainable, healthy, and eco-friendly! Promoting this lifestyle is of upmost importance. What better way than to make it mandatory? Everyone will love that!

Consult on this policy to regulate organic practices. Sure, it will increase the price of cooking, but it will also make everyone more energetic and healthy! Everyone’s rolling in Simoleons anyway.

Water Purifying Solution An experimental water purifying solution will be mixed into tap water. Long term effects are unknown.

Pollution is causing issues with the drinking water supply! A drinkable purification solution has been developed and gained traction on social media as a revolutionary product. Policymakers are being urged to consider putting this solution in the water reserves.

Consult on this policy to regulate the pollution of tap water. The videos of the purifying solution can’t be lying, right?

Littering Fines Litterers can be fined if caught.

Litter causes a lot of problems for our natural resources and wildlife! We need to punish delinquents that can’t be bothered to find a trash bin. A hefty fine should be instated to act as a deterrence. As an added bonus, any fines collected goes straight back to funding more conservation efforts! That’s what the policymakers promise anyway.

Consult on this policy to regulate littering. Litterbugs should know they are in the wrong, so there’s no problem with setting the fine amount really high. Absolutely reasonable.

Energy Curfew The power shuts off at 12:00AM every night and comes back at 6:00AM for all households.

Pollution is becoming a bigger issue every day! We must lower the carbon footprint of every Sim. Solution: shut off electricity to all households between the hours of 12AM and 6AM. Nobody should be using electricity during that time, anyway!

Consult on this policy to regulate energy consumption for all Sims. It may take some getting used to, but sacrifices must be made for the sake of the planet!

Green Energy Rebate Bills are lower for all households, but there may be power outages at peak nighttime hours.

Alternative energy sources must be used if the environment is to be saved! The pollution-inducing power plants need to be shut off in favor of cleaner solutions such as wind and solar. There are no downsides! Well, except the power generated might not be able to account for everyone….

Consult on this policy to regulate the energy source used by all households. What are the chances everyone uses power at the same time anyway?
