Help your Sims build a life from scratch after washing ashore on a deserted tropical island in The Sims 2: Castaway. Overcome the forces of nature to help them become the ultimate survivors and thrive in this undiscovered paradise while unearthing clues that will lead them back to civilization. Build shelters, craft unique items, and discover many useful treasures and ancient mysteries hidden deep within a diverse jungle environment filled with plants, fruits, and even wildlife. Your Sims change as they take on the challenges of island life and learn to survive in style. Choose from a wide range of Sims - Auto Mechanic, Chef, Doctor, Musician, Teacher, Executive, or Park Ranger. Each one brings a unique Sim humor and quirkiness to your crew. Reunite members of your crew and build a thriving community.


Random Crashes with HLE audio

This game may crash randomly in-game. Fixed by 5.0-14626.

Black Sim Photo

In the game pause menu, a black square appears instead of the sim's photo. Unable to reproduce in the latest builds. Most likely an EFB2RAM requirement.

Censor Effect

Under Direct3D, the censor effect can cause slight graphical corruption. It will return back to normal when the censor effect is no longer on-screen. It can even crash Dolphin after a message box about "CreateTexture failed" or "Poke Z not implemented". Use OpenGL to avoid this problem.

The censor effect may cause VPS slow-down no matter what backend. Enable "Skip EFB Access from CPU" to fix this, although it will allow you to see your Sims like a nude Barbie doll. This also prevents graphical corruption under Direct3D. Fixed some time before 5.0-2462.

5.0-21088 Windows 11 AMD Ryzen 5 3600 @ 3.6 GHz NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Runs mostly fine. Occasional slowdowns, sometimes down to 35fps when loading and walking in a new area; hard to tell how much of it that is the game's fault. Got the black square glitch mentioned above. DandelionSprout
