The Sims 3 Guide - Sunset Valley


Here are some hints, tips and secrets that you may not otherwise have known about Sunset Valley.

Graveyard secrets: At the Pleasant Rest Graveyard, there is plenty to see and do.

Firstly, the catacombs underneath the lot is filled with ghosts, ghouls and is not for the faint-hearted Sim. Still worth a visit though! You may also come across a Mysterious Mr. Gnome! You also get some great items from it, and some humorous choices to make in the meantime.

If you turn up at night, ghosts will be roaming the graveyard. You can move gravestones from where a Sim dies, such as a family member in your house, to the Pleasant Rest Graveyard to stop them from pestering your Sims at home (and messing up your appliances!). You can then visit them there. Look out for the graves of Sims you once knew in the cemetery, and their ghosts! Some Sims have a desire to see a ghost.

Entering the catacombs at the graveyard. You'll have to find out what happens inside for yourself!

Use the Papyrus Memorial Library to learn as well as relax. In addition to all the educational books, there is also a computer and the slightly less education play room mentioned above.

If you follow the military career, you receive special interactions with Fort Gnome Military Base. You can also show dates and friends around, which may or may not impress them.

If you follow the criminal career line, your house will never be robbed.

On the beach, Sims can interact with the icebox to serve food and drinks to friends.

Start a beach party!
