How to Get More Social Points - The Sims Social
Free Social Bonus
A good tip for filling your social need without using up any of your energy is to ensure your other needs are fulfilled, before visiting a friend’s house. Once there, move to a different position so that you are right next to the friend’s sim. After a few seconds your Sim will begin socialising with them automatically. The important thing is not to trigger this action yourself. Your Sim’s social Need will then fill up, but won’t cost any energy.
Another option along a similar theme is to give your Sim the Insane trait. With this, they can talk to plants and trees by clicking on the social need button without losing any energy.
If you know someone with a Gazebo, or can construct a Gazebo yourself, you can get free social points by plumping cushions at the Gazebo. This doesn’t take any energy, just time.
Get 50% More Social Points
A great tip for getting more social points while at a neighbor’s house is to perform ‘skilled’ interactions. These earn you 3 points instead of the standard 2. Skilled interactions include tasks such as playing music for your neighbour on the guitar or keyboard, or painting their portrait. It is important when planning the layout of your house to leave a space next to the items so that a visitor will have such options for their interactions.
Other interactions that give 3 points are watching TV together, cuddling, woohooing and massaging.
