Sims Fan Spends 15 Hours Making The Perfect Love Island Villa

A new season of Love Island UK is currently steaming up television screens across the country. While many are content with just watching this troupe of singles bare all in the villa, others are taking their love for the series to new heights. And it turns out those heights include a painstakingly crafted recreation of the show’s iconic villa in The Sims 4.

Creator and Love Island aficionado Steph0Sims has spent 15 hours building an impressive replica of the show’s Mallorca villa in the simulation game. Utilizing the game’s building tools, Steph was able to recreate all the iconic locations within the villa from the fire pit where after-hours hangouts occur, to the beach hut and rectangular pool. There is even a replica of the hideaway for those Sims that want a little private time.

Of course, this creation is even more impressive considering this is the first time this villa has been used in the series. In celebrating eight years of finding love, Love Island debuted a massive new villa for the contestants to share in Mallorca, Spain. While it boasts much of the same architecture and layout as the previously used houses, it is impressive that the creator built a replica having only seen the property for a few weeks.

In discussing the creation, Steph remarked on how much of the work was just guesswork: "Love Island didn't release any floorplans, so I had to work it out as I went along based on the size of rooms and furniture. Every single object had to be placed individually including all the strip lights on the floor, so I ended up with 15 hours of recorded footage."

Luckily, those who want to play out their own version of Love Island: Sims Edition do not need to spend the 15 hours of construction work that Steph did. This villa can be downloaded through the in-game gallery by simply searching for “Steph0Sims”. Although you will need to own several of the previously released packs in order to utilize all that comes with the villa.
