The problem is, you can't even get a single Simolean for free. You have to EARN it. Just like I do in it. First of all, let me get this straight, you can earn Simoleans by wasting energy. You can waste energy by chatting, flirting and be rude.

A very good question. A very good question at all. You need to know how to make smiley faces in facebook, don't you? If you don't, it's really really easy. Do a : and then do a ). It will make a smiley face. There are no spaces. It's just like this: Smile.

@Unregistered Viewer with ID #127526: I believe you're mentioning that you need the hammer item, which is a drop from completing actions. To my knowledge there is no specific hammer task/action you can give to your sim, but there are actions you can take that will give you the hammer item drop. I have not seen this, but I have heard of people getting hammers from both eating as well as using your stove. It doesn't make much sense to me, but apparently people have gotten this drop as some point. The easiest (and most likely*) way I can suggest is to do the repair action on broken items.

Thanks Admin-person. I checked out the link and made a couple posts this afternoon. Wanted to get through that before I posted on here today. Glad to see that my post wasn't out of line putting that much up on the site's own walkthrough. /laugh

Onto everyone else! Sorry it took me a week to get back on here. Life is hectic, and we're coming to the close of hockey season, so my posting and checking sites like this becomes a little more sporadic then intended. I do remember that the site exists, I just can't break myself away from the ice half the time to post immediately. No one hate me for it, okay?

So let's address some other questions on here that people have asked. One I've seen a lot of is:

How can I get unlimited Social Points

Allow me to say that this is even harder to accomplish than SimCash. As I posted in another section about The Sims Social, SimCash is controlled by the developers, and is, in fact, one of their ways of turning profit off this game. Social Points are an object that can't even be purchased (unless you want to discuss economic trade-off for item use and compensation, but I doubt anyone wants to hear the ramblings of an Econ traitor student). You earn Social Points. Please note that word, EARN. There is no quick victory button here, friends. You have to make actions to get the points. Now, if you were to go and buy a lot of SimCash, I believe there is a way to convert it to energy, which you could then use solely on social actions to gain points. However, you only gain a fixed amount. No, people, there is no button that says "Click Here to get EVERYTHING for free." I'm sorry to burst your bubbles, but that's just not how you play a game, and I personally like that the game doesn't just let you put in a code to have everything. It gives you a sense of achievement as you unlock more things. Yes, it would be nice to have a couple hundred SimCash to just go ahead and buy everything now and not wait, but come on, you can wait, and so can I.

I'm having browser issues

No software is perfect. Nothing ever will be, I believe we all agree. But from what I've seen, Facebook's games seem to work best on Google Chrome as a number of people have already stated. I don't think it's a coincidence that so many players are saying this. If you're having reload issues, if you're having freeze ups, or if something just doesn't load properly, I rarely see errors and I use Google Chrome. I suggest switching to it, even if just for your games. Everyone has their preferences, and if you like Internet Explorer, use it. But if you want to reduce the likelihood of problems while playing, I suggest trying Google Chrome.

Why is this one different from the other Sims games?

First off, I would like to have said hello to tiffanymaykodrich. Sadly, it seems that she has taken leave from the site. For those of you who are curious about her question, though, I would like to give a quick insight into the game. It's designed to be ran on the most simple of systems so everyone has access to it. It's designed to have limited options so that the game isn't massive. This is a Facebook game, and it's intended for play over slow continual progression instead of plopping into your chair and playing for a couple of hours straight. This game is meant to reflect more of the Facebook style of games instead of being a free Sims game for everyone. What you're seeing is EA wanting to put the Sims out into the market for more people. It's as much of a game for you as it is advertisement for them. There's nothing wrong with that, but this isn't supposed to be The Sims 12 or whatever release they're up to now. This is the Sims on Facebook, and as such, expect a Facebook game. /nodnod

How do I redecorate my house

Go to the shop menu. Everything is movable from there. If you want to move rooms, you can. If you want to move furniture, you can. Need to sell something, or add something, change the color of the walls, the carpet, new hardwood floors? You can do it all from the shop menu above your friends list.

What's the baby bottle about

Good question! I'm not sure at all. I have yet to see a baby bottle over my, or my friends Sim's heads. I will be on the look out for it and try to notice what causes it and what is happening. It's entirely possible (and my current assumption) that your Sim was talking to another Sim at the time. If so, it seems that a random item is put into a speech/thought bubble to reflect what the conversation is about, and it's possible that you saw the conversation include children in some capacity. Seeing as how Sims don't speak English (or your language of choice), but instead speak gibberish audio files, we'll never know exactly what they're saying. Just assume someone mentioned someone's kid. If I find something different, I will post it!
