    Lost meets The Sims 2. That basically sums up Sims 2 Castaway. Your sim washes
    up on an island and must survive until rescued or you can successfully escape.
    Great game and much better then the previous Sims on PSP.
    
    At times things can get confusing so I've decided to put together a guide. This
    is my first faq so please bear me. This may not take you step by step through
    every part of the game, but I intend to cover anything relevant and important
    to finish the game.
    
    Shoot an email to methnet@gmail.com if ya know something useful that has not
    been covered here.
    
    ---------
    1.1 Notes
    ---------
    
    Out of the gate, I'll assume you've had some experience playing a sims game
    before. This will not be a step by step guide. This is an open ended game and
    it would be best to play your own way. So I will give you a layout of the goals
    and how to achieve them. How you go about it is up to you.
    
    One thing I will point out if you are new to the Sims series is the importance
    of needs, skills, relationships. Your sim will have daily needs like eating &
    sleeping that you must monitor constantly. You will not get much done in any
    Sims game with an unhappy sim.
    
    One need to pay attention to is the social need, second one down on the mood
    meter. The social need can prevent access to certain areas of the game so make
    friends even if it's with monkeys. Skill levels will increase as you do tasks
    throughout the game. Later in the game, skill levels become important in order
    to make or use certain items so keep that in mind as you play.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    2.0 Control Tips
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Just walking up to most things will bring out a pop up menu of a list of
    actions you can take. Sometimes the pop up will not show if you don't have the
    proper tool in your inventory to perform the action. This usually does not
    happen until pretty far in the game so it is something to keep in mind if you
    looking for an item but can't seem to find it anywhere. For example in order to
    harvest hardwood you have to have the right axe for the job to pop up when you
    walk past a hardwood tree. Without the axe you never get the pop up.
    
    CIRCLE Button - Brings out an abbreviated inventory of some important items.
    From this menu you can access fruits for a quick snack, toilet paper for a
    potty break, and other tools like fishing poles, nets, and spears.
    
    START Button - Main menu of the game. Access to Inventory, Map, Goals, Plans,
    appearance stuff, skill, friends, and more from here.
    
    SQUARE Button - Toggles Mood Meter located along the right side of the screen.
    
    TRIANGLE Button - Stops an action
    
    LEFT Trigger & UP (D-Pad) - Will speed up gameplay
    
    LEFT Trigger & LEFT or Right (D-Pad) - Switch to another crewmate. Only works
    if other crewmates is on the same part of the island as you.
    
    START -> Island Map - When multiple parts an island are unlocked, selecting the
    place you want to travel to on the map will make traveling much faster then by
    foot or boat. Less load screens.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.0 Starting Out
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    3.1
    
       Starting a new game you need to make an important decision right away. Do
       you want a crew? These will be people you will eventually meet up with
       during the game. They can be a help with gathering and making things to
       survive and are also good company. Or if you are the type that prefers to
       fly solo crewmates can be a pain to have to look after. All depends on your
       preference.
    
    3.2
    
       Then you can customize your sim as you like. You can choose a male or
       female. You can then either randomize or customize your sim. Customizing
       allows you to alter their appearance somewhat to your liking, choose a name,
       occupation and personality.
    
    3.3
    
       Occupation - Serves no purpose other then to give you skill points in a
       particular area. You will start out with zero skill level for all skills
       except the one that pertains to the profession you choose.
    
       Mechanic  - Mechanical Skill
       Chef      - Cooking Skill
       Doctor    - Mechanical & Logic Skills
       Executive - Charisma Skill
       Musician  - Creativity Skill
       Ranger    - Body Skill
       Teacher   - Logic
    
    3.4
    
       Personality - Pick a zodiac sign for your sim. You can also tweak these
       settings. May want to give this some thought if your chose to play with a
       crew. You don't need a bunch of grumpy sims who won't get along with each
       other.
    
    3.5
    
       Cue the cutscene.
    
       Once your done adding the crew a cut scene plays. After that you get two pop
       up messages. The second one tells you that you've found Moneywell's Big Book
       of Survival and will ask if you want to do the tutorial. I suggest doing the
       tutorial even if you have played other sims games before.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    4.0 Gameplay Tips
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    "Identify ....."
    
    Starting out in a new area you will often see "Identify bush" or something
    similar. You must identify many of the plants & trees in the game in order to
    harvest items from them.
    
    
    Portals
    
    As you look around the area you may see a set of feet hovering in the air or
    come across an action menu that says "Explore". This is a portal to a new area.
    First Beach has only one portal but as you progress other areas may have 2,3,
    or 4 portals.
    
    Tools
    
    It is a good idea to craft as many tools as possible, as early as you can in
    the game. There are points that you will not be able to advance beyond in the
    game without specific tools or items created with specific tools.
    
    Cleaning Up
    
    Easy way to clean up plates is to run into the ocean. Go out far enough and the
    plates disappear. Or toss them in the fire.
    
    Inventory Built Items
    
    Many of the things that you build, for example work benches, stoves, etc, can
    all be placed in back in your inventory in case you would like to take them
    with you to another location. Enter Grab mode at the bottom of the Plans menu.
    Then select the item, hit the square button, and it will bring up a menu where
    you can either delete the item or put it in your inventory.
    
    Shelter Resources
    
    Plans for the different shelters require alot of resources to be in your
    inventory, especially later in the game. However, you don't have to use the
    preset plans for that paticular structure...you can build on on your own
    usually for alot less invetory items.
    
    Under Shelter Plans hit the R trigger until you see Roof Plans then sort
    through those. They give you options as to what size you want which can realy
    save on wood. Build the roof first since it will shelter you other objects
    from the rain and then you can go back and put up walls,windows, and doors
    whenever you get enough materials.

    The How To's
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Many of the goals above are self explanatory or fairly easy to figure out.
    Therefore I will only explain the goals that require more then just common
    sense to fulfill.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    8.2 Book 1 Goals
    ================
    
    - Build a workbench
    
    	On First Beach find the 2 stones and select "Build Workbench" Unlocks
    	simple shelter, fishing spear, shell axe, torch
    
    - Cook a fish
    
    	Requires bamboo fishing spear, firepit/stove. Head to a beach. Walk in
    	water where fish are swimming and select "Spear fish". Then go to your
    	firepit or stove. Select "Cook Meal" and press R trigger to scroll the
    	menu until you see the fish.
    
    	The trick to fishing with a spear is to wait until you see a little 
    	fish jump up out of the water and then you tap X to spear fish. It's a
    	timing thing. The trick to fishing with the pole is to wait for the red
    	thing to plunge down in the water, then tap x. Another timing thing.
    
    - Assemble a radio transmitter
    
    	Gather radio from plane in Airplane Jungle and transmitter from other
    	plane in South River Jungle. Take radio out of inventory, set down and
    	then turn it on. Scroll up on radio menu and you should see repair
    	transmitter.
