EA technical support guesses at 1650 SimPoints.

  • A French gaming site reported that it would cost 600 SimPoints (roughly €6)[7] and a Q&A interview on IGN reported that it was 1650, though that information was later removed from the article[3]. An EA technical support representative mentioned 1650 as well, but stated that it was not certain, as shown in the image on the right.
  • In an IGN interview with EA they refer to Barnacle Bay as an "expansion", though this term is incorrect as it is merely a downloadable neighborhood similar to Riverview[3]


  • Like Twinbrook, all deceased Sims have grey hair and green skin.
  • On January, the 1st of 2011, the Daily deal from the Sims 3 Store concerned Barnacle Bay, which cost 1111 SimPoints.
  • Oddly there are 2 repairwomen and 2 elderly social workers, and many more NPCs with different life stages from another games.
  • The neighbourhood's name may be a reference or parody to the character Barnacle Boy from the SpongeBob SquarePants series. It may also be a direct reference to an island, with the same name, on The Simpsons series featured on episode 10 of the 18th season "The Wife Aquatic".
  • With Late Night installed there is a glitch that starts every sim in town off with Celebrity status (Levels 1-4)
  • Barnacle bay was also released in stores, costing 14$. The box contains a piece of paper with a code that players can use to buy it from The Sims 3 Store.[8]
