SuperCheats.com Unofficial Guide to The Sims 3


 

The Sims series began with the best-selling game in the history of the PC format. Following this success, countless expansions and a sequel established the brand and set up EA for Spore, aiming to add to The Sims creator Will Wright's legacy. Now we have the second sequel. The Sims 3 uses the next generation of PC hardware since the last game's launch in 2004, allowing exploration beyond the confines of the local neighbourhood, and customisation of virtually all aspects of your Sims' lives.

This guide on The Sims 3 begins with a tour of Sunset Valley. It is the only town that comes included with the game. Unlike other versions of The Sims however, you can visit any location on the map without loading screens, and many of the features seen in expansion packs for The Sims 2 are all bundled into locations within the valley. While many gamers will be familiar with the everyday running of a Sim's life from the previous games, exploring the town itself and getting used to the locations takes time, and the hope is that this section of the guide will help you get up and running faster. Information on workplaces, , community locations, amenities and collectibles will help in planning a life for your Sims without muddling through and missing out on what Sunset Valley has to offer. There is also a section on the Edit Town facility, which allows you to transform River View to suit your own needs, as well as details on how to get EA's second town for The Sims 3, River View.

The second section of this guide is on the Create-a-Sim tools, and comprehensive information on the Build and Buy Modes. Making your Sim look lifelike can be a breeze if you know what you are doing. The in depth customisation options far outstrip anything in The Sims 2. There are many ways to go about starting the game, whether you choose to purchase a plot of land and build from scratch, purchase a furnished house to move straight into, or skip the Create-a-Sim stage altogether and play one of the game's built-in scenarios. Information on all the options available to you is provided in this section of the guide. Tips on buying a good lot and the essential items for your Sims' houses are included, as well as a video for the cheapest possible starter-house. Some objects give Sims specific bonuses, or increase the attractiveness of a room. This can give your Sims positive (or negative) moodlets, which can make them happier (or quite the opposite). All the objects that provide bonuses are listed, as well as moodlets, lifetime wishes and general wishes relating to the decoration of your Sims' homes.

In the future a section on the Life of your Sims will be provided. This will include tips on careers, hobbies, socialising and raising a family. The final section will be a modders guide, with information on how to make your creations, get them online and get people downloading them!

Hi! Just in case you guys still don't know how to have kids on sims freeplay, you have to pass the money doesn't grow on trees challenge. Then you have to buy a crib from the childrens store, and press, "add sim". That's basically it. Hope this was helpful.

To get a vampire on Sims 3 (if you're talking about the pc version) You must have the supernatural expansion pack then simply create a new family and make one of them vampire and the second one human then in-game offer the human sim to be transformed it will take 2 days i think for the human sim to become a vampire between 1-2 days not sure haha

All you guys practicly keep saying HOW do you have kids. I do not play the Sims 3 on DS. But I know everything about the Sims 3 Pets on PC. Maybe you can have kids on the DS. Try different games or something.. |Cheat - motherlode ; Motherlode gives you 50,000 Dollars. Also on the Sims 3 pets for (PC) IF YOU PLAY. There will be creepy stuff. Such as Ghosts, Ghost Dogs, Ghost Cats. and the ghost horse. The ghost horse is called gilton 2.0 something like that. He is red and you can bottle feed him. but..HE SCARES ME x_x. There are unicorns and small critters. Like Turtles, Fish, Lizards, Snakes, etc. I think the most CREEPIEST thing is the 'Big Foot' Mostly when you are in 'Birds Eye.' You may zoom into the woods and see a brown creature. I mostly call it a 'Big Foot' But Its alittle Creepy. Bai Bai :D
