Q&A from the Covert Live during the chat

Guest: Is Sunlit Tides part of Seasons or is this something different
SimGuruSmitty: Hi Guest, This world is something completely different

Michelle: So this is a world you can get with just the base game? or do you need seasons to buy it?
SimGuruSmitty: You do NOT need seasons to get this world. Just base game. ^^

SimGuruSmitty: This is one of my FAVORITE parts of the sauna!

Hekate Is the roof of the spa new or was already in the game?
SimGuruSmitty: It's new!

Daelia Can we place the mailbox that comes with Sunlit Tides for other builds?
SimGuruSmitty: In other worlds? Yes! — With the Buy Debug cheat. :)

beaty are there any new foods?
SimGuruSmitty: Unfortunately not in this world, but I *can* hint there is some fun food stuff coming in the store. :)

Jason Are any other old families returning or is it just the Pleasants?
SimGuruSmitty: It's just the pleasants this time around. :)

Rudy I really like the color of the water, it gives such a tropical feeling!
SimGuruSmitty: The water texture is my favorite part of each world. :D They make every world awesome and unique.

SimsFan Is this a Hawaii inspired world? :)
SimGuruSmitty: It's inspired by a number of island locations. Not entirely hawaii, but it is meant to be a tropical paradise
SimGuruSmitty: South Pacific Island, Hawaii, Fiji, — More South Pacific than Carribbean. is that inspiration.

Ray Would it be possible to woohoo in those showers? :D
SimGuruSmitty: @Ray nope!

AlexBellant Question: Do all these premium content come with the World when you buy it? or do you have to buy it separate ?
SimGuruSmitty: They come with the world when you buy it. The Sauna comes with the world. The Sauna, Spa Retreat and Massage table come with the GOLD version of the world.

catchyseachild So it's limited to young adult and up? No teens?
SimGuruSmitty: Maybe?
SimGuruSmitty: We think they can, but we don't remember right now. :/

jacqpinks can the outdoor shower be placed inside and work the same way as the inside ones
SimGuruSmitty: Yes. It doesn't work exactly the same. You can put them inside, but the Sims switch to swimwear to use the shower.

Peter seriously what is the difference between the normal version and the gold version of the world? is it just the objects
SimGuruSmitty: Gold Version – World, Sauna, Serenity Retreat, Massage Table
SimGuruSmitty: Standard – World, Sauna
