[1.01] Introduction

"Bristling winter cold, crisp fall mornings, rainy spring afternoons, and hot
summer nights are now all a part of your neighbourhoods! Bundle your Sims up
in warm outerwear clothing or have them drink a cool, refreshing beverage to
ward off the heat. Now that the weather is changing, you never know what 
quite to expect!

Send your Sims outdoors, grow fruit and vegetables in a new garden, spend the
afternoon in the pool, or heave a snowball at your neighbour! There's plenty
to do in the great outdoors!

Welcome to Seasons!"

Welcome to my, what it seems to be lucky 13th guide. This is about the game
The Sims 2 expansion pack, Seasons. It seems that EA has split Unleashed into

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[1.03] Riverblossom Hills

A new neighbourhood has opened out for you to muck around. The new neighbour-
hood, in addition to Pleasantview, Strangetown and Veronaville is Riverblossom
Hills. Of course, you can just pack everyone up and send them to your own 
custom neighbourhood, like me. 

"Many Sims have relocated to the quiet, comfortable countryside, in the hopes 
that life and family can firmly plant their roots in the middle of nowhere.
Fresh crops aren’t the only thing growing in the farming community of 
Riverblossom Hills – love is in the air and many a relationship is on the 
verge of blossoming.  Unfortunately, problems are bound to sprout in a town 
this small. Things are looking up, but hearts can always turn cold with the 
onset of winter."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.01] The Concept

Seasons is the main point of having Seasons. Let me rephrase. The 4 seasons of
the year is the main point of The Sims 2 : Seasons. Every single neighbourhood
can have a season and what kind of Sim game would you be playing if you don't
get to control what season you get to muck around with. There are reasons to
mess around with seasons. Think of how you can change the view of the 
neighbourhood of you get to change the season around. You like snow? Well you
can have it. And also, each season has its advantages and its disadvantages.
Season will change over time and you have to adjust to each one do that you
don't get left behind. After all, since when was winter summer? This can lead
to some warm weather in winter and cold weather in summer. Anything is 
possible, anything. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.02] Summer

The first of the seasons. In this season, the sun shines for your Sims, and
by shine, replace with burns. In the season of scorching heat, you don't want
to be caught outside when it is burning. Because of the great activities that
you can do in summer, like muck around in the pool for hours on end, not only
do the body points become automatically acquired, but it is a great time for
you to catch up with friends.

In Summer, you get an extra relationship boost to all positive interactions
towards people living outside your family. It is nice to have a nice boost to
keep up to date with friends, especially if you have many friends, thank you
Open for Business. Also, it is Summer so be aware that you will heat up faster
in the sun and exercising. Your temperature will reach the red far faster 
rather than other seasons, so you might need to drink some fresh juice to calm
you down. Also, during the night time, you can look out for fireflies. These
little critters can be collected by clicking the square they are on and by
catching them. They will be a miniature source of light that you can use but
after a while, the glow will be gone. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.03] Autumn

Autumn is the beginning of decay. Leaves start to fall and the Sun slowly 
turns off the gas. It isn't too warm in this season and it prone to sudden
changes in weather. Of course, with the season of fall, the leaves will fall
of any trees that aren't related to producing food, quite quickly which will
soon turn to be a chore. Of course, you can rake up the leaves, giving access
to cleaning points by simply raking it. After that, you can simply dispose of
them, which is rather dull. Of course, you can compost them to give an extra
boost to your garden or you can burn them. Yes, BURN!!! Being the pyromaniac
that I am, I love burning them, but don't burn them near something that can
easily go up in flames, it isn't too much fun to have your house burn down to
your pyromaniac urges. 

The main bonus of the season of Autumn is the boost to the rate that your Sims
learn their skills. You can witness this when you see them training their 
skills and see the leaves flowing around the progress bar. This is extremely
handy, since it can nearly halve the time needed to learn a skill. This is 
even more handy when you use it with some of the juices and learn the final
skill point to max out a skill. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.04] winter

Ah, the Season of Wintery Death. Winter is basically what it is, the freezing
cold. You will notice the most unique feature of Winter. The floor will 
become white due to the snow. And this will be due to the weather. And since 
it will, WILL, be cold in Winter, you must buy some outerwear for your Sims
to wear. This way, it will prevent them getting cold too quickly outside. Just
like Summer on the way it rapidly increased the temperature guage, Winter does
the exact opposite. Luckily, since all trees will be dormant for the winter, 
you can purchase a hot chocolate maker. Just a cup of this glorious stuff will
warm your Sim up from the blue to the green. 

The next thing is the snow and the chill. You will need a roof over the green
house to ensure that your plants will grow, and a roof over the head of your
own Sims. Why? Well, would you like to sleep in the snow while being tucked
in, nice and cozy, in your bed? Don't think so. Of course, it will snow and 
this will make everything outside covered in snow. Of course, everything will
still work, its rather more decoration than anything else. And then there is
the opportunity to make snow angels and snowmen, if you don't have the Holiday
Pack. The look of the snowman, according to the Maxoids is depending on 
whether your Sim is nice or evil. Nice will have a friendly looking snowman
while evil Sims will have a nasty looking snowman. 

With the snow that will pour down in the winter season, there will be the
opportunity to have snow angels. It is literally an angel, where your Sim gets
down on the snow and spreads their limbs. The snow can be seen through when
you clikck with your cursor, however, the grass will be snow. This is why you
should invest in a greenhouse. 

Another feature of the Winter Season is the penguin. This little fellow will
come along and will act as a semi-pet. You can shoo him, pet him, but can't
form a relationship with him. If you have a snowman, the penguin can go and
communicate with him, somehow. Of course, he can come along in the other 
seasons and if you leave some fish for him, he'll eat it. 

With the fish, along comes another point. Your pool will be heated, this is
probably why my Sims go for a dip in the pool while walking from A to B, until
I did some reconstruction. Its obviously warmer than walking if the pool is
heated. Ponds will be frozen over unless it is covered by something, meaning
that there won't be fresh fish for a season. 

Of course, since there is ice, you can have ice skating. Its basically the
roller rink being run into a ice skating rink. It basically the same except
for the interactions that you can perform with friends and family. You can 
try to spin and jump while working up those body points. Wow, Seasons make
body points more fun to achieve. Although your interactions with the other
Sims is rather limited, it will provide large relationship boosts to your
totals. And on the note of family, this is the best time for your Sims and
their family to get together. While friends will yield a slightly lower 
amount of relationship points, it will be different for your family. This is
the time to renew and build up those family bonds. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.05] Spring

All your gardening will be back to life, with fruit tree at the sickly level.
Do not dispair, for it will be back to normal sooner or later, after the
necessary amount of pruning. This is also the time to start some planting of
crops will be in Spring. It also allows you access to your pond again, when
the weather decides to pick up again. Of course, with spring, the Season of
life, there will be some butterflies to catch. You can do it as you would do
with fireflies, you click on the square they are located on, and then catch
them. Of course, they just add to the decor of the place, but if you have Open
for Business, it looks cool to have some jars of insects on the shelves, even 
if you can't sell them. 

Spring is the Season for Love. All romantic interactions will yield more
relationship points and is perfect to catch up with the flames which are the
boyfriends and the girlfriends or level up with a spark that you think will
provide eternal happiness. Of course, marriage is for the life of the Sim, 
since the SimCity Marriage Council does not believe in divorce. Damn old,
conservative council, though it does limit the ability of Sims to become
gold diggers.

[4.01] Books First for Learning: A Bookshelf of Education

"Books First, the revolutionary new education system sweeping the community
is now ready to enter the homes of working educators with A Bookshelf of 
Education. Knowledge can be obtained for any discipline via the Golden Book
of Cornelius von Schtoop. Taking the first step to a life of learning is 
like the first step in a candy store - delicious."

Books First for Learning: A Bookshelf of Education
Job Level: High School Teacher [Level 5]
Increase Skill: Charisma, Logic, Cleaning, Cooking, Mechanical, Creativity,
                Body
Increase Motive: None
Bonus: Increases Skills Faster

This is the best reward ever. It allows you to increase any skill you want,
even ones that normally cannot be researched by the bookcase, such as body
and charisma. This means you can learn anything from this wonderful reward. 
With the Season elements, in the Fall, you can learn any skill with ease
while the decay of your needs will fall as if you were researching skills from
a normal bookcase. This makes it invaluable for future success. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[4.02] The Rock Hammer

"The guitar that defined the music of a generation is now yours to thrash, 
own, and rip up on stage. Every musician dreams to touch, nigh, smell the 
catgut strings of this blessed weapon of rock. You are lucky to be chosen for
the Rock Hammer - do not defy the rock, lest you find yourself jamming to
country."

The Rock Hammer
Job Level: Roadie [Level 6]
Increase Skill: Creativity
Increase Motive: Fun - 5
Bonus: Performs for Tips

This is a super cool version of the University guitar and looks much better.
It is currently unknown if there are any differences between the two, but I
would hazard a guess that it will increase creativity faster than a normal
musical instrument. You can also perform the three styles as well as perform
for tips. It is quite nifty and cool looking really, with a massive 
loudspeaker in the background.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[4.03] The Gootentaugen Award for Excellence in Journalism

"The Gootentaugen Award is reserved for those who demonstrate an excellent 
gift with the written word, or for those who show great potential for
greatness. The finest writers, as they lay dying on their death beds, can 
point to a shelf full of Gontentaugens, and say, "I have written great 
things." Then their pen drops, and only the Gootentaugens remain. Stand in
the presence of this fantastic award and watch your mood improve!"

The Gootentaugen Award for Excellence in Journalism
Job Level: Horoscope Writer [Level 6]
Increase Skill: None
Increase Motive: None
Bonus: Burst of Comfort, Energy. Social, Fun and Hygiene

This award for excellence is available for those who excel with the pen. It
is a tiny trophy, which you must place on a table of some sort for best
usage. It is best placed on a desk where kids do their homework as this will
give bursts of comfort, energy, social, fun and hygiene every now and then.
It has a small radius and you have to be in near it in order to gain its
effect. Imagine it as the weaker version of a Snapdragon that can boost 
energy as well. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[4.04] "I Object" Litigator Podium

"The ruthless and justice-filled oak from which this podium was built has 
served three generations of brillant lawyers. Passed down over the years, this
podium is regarded by many as both sacred and lawful - a powerful combination.
Few lawyers who've had to privilege to speak from this podium find themselves 
on the losing side of a jury's decision. As far as Charisma building goes, 
"nobody can object to the "I Object" Litigator Podium. 

"I Object" Litigator Podium
Job Level: Personal Injury Attorney [Level 6]
Increase Skill: Charisma
Increase Motive: Fun - 6
Bonus: +§5 Simoleons

This is similar to the existing podium that you will receive from the 
Politics career track. However, there is a good side to this reward though.
You will gain fun from this reward, which is an added benefit to learning
Charisma from the machine as well as gain 5 Simoleons every few seconds while
making progress to your Charisma. It is a double benefit, therefore, this 
will have some uses. Have some fun practicing some cases. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[4.05] Golden Skull of Jumbok IV

"The Golden Skull of Jumbok IV was liberated from the ancient ruins discovered
just outside Riverblossom Hills. Jumbok IV, conqueror of the ancient ruins 
Pleasantview and Veronaville, was known as a cruel, loud and smelly ruler. 
Nevertheless, his skull, which has been coated in gold and enlarged to enhance
its aesthic beauty, is fitting for any home and inspiring to all. It can 
definitely be said that standing next to Jumbok's golden skull is better for
you than standing next to the conquering Jumbok of old!"

Golden Skull of Jumbok IV
Job Level: Relic Liberator [Level 5]
Increase Skill: None
Increase Motive: None
Bonus: Burst of Comfort, Energy, Social, Fun and Hygiene

Don't worry, the ruins of Jumbok will return in The Sims 2: Vacation. Anyway,
this is the same as the Award for Excellence in Journalism where it will
raise the skills over a period of time. Whereas the award for excellence is 
small and on a table, this Skull is a massive object and has to be on the
floor. If what we see here is the skull, I want to see how big this Jumbok
really is. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[4.06] Tribal Flame a la Coconut Pinball

"Boom! The flames lick skyward as the metallic ball races for points and 
ultimately, the high score! Ding! Ping! Clang! Be careful, as your may anger
the Tiki spirits! They demand the ultimate high score. That volcano will ooze
the lava of your demise. Hiss. Sizzle. Crackle. Enjoy, have fun and earn some
Simoleons!"

Tribal Flame a la Coconut Pinball
Job Level: Flag Capturer [Level 5]
Increase Skill: None
Increase Motive: Fun - 10
Bonus: +§5 Simoleons

This is the Pinball machine that I would want. The fun rating of 10 is nothing
really special, several items that you can buy have a fun rating of 10. The
reason why I want this machine is that you get paid to play pinball. Every
2 Sim Minutes, you will get §5 for playing it. That is why everyone would want
it. Paid to play. Well, thats the Gamer profession for you, paid to have fun.
Sigh, I bet a lot of people wish it was real. The §5 Boost is automatically
added to your household funds, however, your computer might lag a bit when the
Simoleons are being added.

 long division, and spelling. The student takes a minute analysing the facts
 then takes another few minutes to jot down his answer. ____ is delighted
 to see that he has answered the question perfectly, but even more delighted
 when she realises the principal saw her teaching skills in action. For 
 handling the situation like a true educator, the principal promotes ____ to
 Substitute Teacher!

"Alter the Role Sheet" 20% Chance 
 ____ thinks back to her days in school and admits to herself that she wasn't
 always on time, either. With a shrug of her shoulders, ____ whips out a 
 pencil and begins to erase the child's absence from the role sheet. 
 Unfortunately, the school librarian, a stickler for the rules who will do
 anything for a promotion, observes the incident and quickly runs to the 
 superintendent to tattle on ____. Caught between a rock and a militant
 librarian, the superintendent is forced to take action - the child is forced
 to repeat the grade, and ____ is shown the door. ____ has been fired!

********************
*Substitute Teacher*
********************

"____ is called to substitute for Ms. Moorington, who has won the Teacher of
 the Year Award for the past 3 years. A bit intimidated, ____ takes a deep 
 breath and arrives in the classroom to find its inhibitants have gone insane!
 She pulls a child down from the ceiling and demands to know what is going on.
 It appears that Ms. Moorington never actually taught, she just bribed the
 children with candy and falsified their report cards. Ms. Moorington has a 
 lot of power with the school board, making it risky for ____ to reveal the
 conspiracy. Desperate times call for desperate measures -- what should ____
 do to get the classroom under control?"

"Report Ms. Moorington's Scheme" 75% Chance 
 The children are out of control and there's nothing in ____'s training to
 prepare her for such a disaster. ____ grabs her desk phone and calls in
 backup. Instantly, hall monitors and the gym coach burst into the classroom
 with the principal bringing up the rear. "This is what your teacher of the
 year has created!" shout ____ from underneath her desk. The small army of
 educators get the situation in hand before too long, and ____ is able to
 spill the beans. Though some have a hard time grasping the truth, the 
 principal is quick to recognise ____'s efforts and she promotes her to
 Elementary School Teacher to replace the disgraced Ms. Moorington.

"Report Ms. Moorington's Scheme" 25% Chance 
 ____ rolls her eyes - they simply don't pay her enough to deal with the
 situation on her own. ____ jogs to the principal's office, only to find the
 principal drinking tea with who else, but Ms. Moorington. ____ informs the
 principal of the situation and points an accusatory finger at Ms. 
 Moorington. No spring chicken to deception and saving one's skin, Ms.
 Moorington quickly spins the truth and redirects the blame squarely on the
 shoulders of ____. Clearly out-foxed, ____ is left with nothing to say when
 the principal tells her that it's probably best she find another job. ____
 is fired!

"Eat Lots of Candy!" 25% Chance 
 One must fight fire with fire, or a sugar rush with another sugar rush. After
 one final warning, ____ begins shoving candy down her throat and is instantly
 energised. With hyper fast reflexes and sugary responses, ____ bounces around
 the room, the entire time putting a stop to the mayhem and mischief 
 surrounding her. The kids are caught completely unaware - they've never seen
 an authority figure move with such blindingly sweet speed! Other teachers are
 drawn to the commotion and it isn't long before word gets around that ____ is
 a no-nonsense educator that will do whatever it takes to teach the children,
 ____ earns a Creativity Skill Point!

"Eat Lots of Candy!" 75% Chance 
 Desperate to fix the situation, ____ convinces herself that the best way to
 take control of the sugar-powered chaos is to become a sugar powered 
 teacher. However, not everyone is built for massive quantities of candy, and
 ____ soon finds herself bouncing off the walls uncontrollably, with a bit of
 a tummy-ache to boot. Shocked by their substitute teacher's actions, the 
 students calm down and watch as ____ becomes one Sim wrecking crew. When 
 ____ jumps atop her desk and declares "pop quiz", the students run terrified
 from the room to warn the others. The school officals lock ____ in the room 
 until she calms down enough to receive the news that she has been fired.

*Elementary School Teacher*
***************************

"____ really wants to impress the administration with her students, and the
 school district science fair looks like the perfect opportunity. Two of her
 students' projects really stand out: Harry Monroe's model that hypothesizes
 the result of hot cocoa brewed in a volcano, and Sally O'Minky's holographic
 gelatin projector. Both are top notch and cutting edge for the elementary
 scientific community, but ___ can only send one student. Who should she send?

"Harry Monroe" 45% Chance 
 Everyone loves gelatin, especially the holographic kind, which makes ____'s
 decision to go with Harry Monroe's volcano cocoa model that much more 
 difficult. Nonetheless, it was the best choice and ____ sends Harry to the
 science fair with her full support. Such shrewd decision making pays off, as
 two of the three judges are not only cocoa fanatics, but volcano enthusiasts
 as well. With magma brewed cocoa exploding into well-placed cups, the judges
 are not only satified, but impressed beyond measure. Harry Monroe walks away
 from the competition with the Grand Prize, and ____, as his sponsor, happily
 drives home with a bonus of §970 Simoleons.

"Harry Monroe" 55% Chance 
 ____ decides to send Harry Monroe to the competition, convinced that no 
 judge could resist cocoa brewed within simulated piping hot magma chambers.
 Assumptions have little place in science, however, and Harry and ____'s
 spirits plummet when they are informed that, oddly enough, all three judges
 have a strong dislike for all things chocolate. Despite ____'s demand for 
 an alternate opinion from a second judges panel, Monroe's Volcanic Cocoa
 theory is pronounced deal on arrived. For such a poor showing in the district
 science fair, the school decides to not reimburse ____ for money spent
 sponsoring Harry, and she is forced to pay §475 Simoleons out of her own 
 pocket.

"Sally O'Minky" 55% Chance 
 As much as ____ loves cocoa, especially the volcanic kind, she knows her 
 best bet is with Sally O'Minky's holographic gelatin projector. After mere
 minutes at the show, Sally has a huge crowd surrounding her booth, salivating
 over the prospect of fresh, delicious gelatin. Corporate representatives are
 also at the show, and it isn't long before the Pleasentview Gelatin Company
 offers O'Minky a healthy incentive of Simoleons to sell the device to them,
 to be used in advertising in grocery stores. O'Minky agrees to sell, and as
 her sponsor, ____ is entitled to a cut. ____ receives a bonus of §760 
 Simoleons.

"Sally O'Minky" 45% Chance 
 ____ thinks long and hard, but she decides that holographic gelatin is a 
 safer bet than volcanic cocoa. Things are progressing well, until Jerome
 Greaves, a student from the competing school district, unveils his 
 holographic hamburger projector. With a choice between projected
 gelatin and beef, the judges decided unanimously for the latter, and soon
 leave for hamburgers at a local restaurant. For failure to inspire her
 students beyond holographic gelatin, ____ is demoted to Substitute 
 Teacher!

*High School Teacher*
*********************

"Spirit day for the high school is approaching and everyone is expected to
 participate - even teachers. However, things aren't so simple for ____,
 who is up for evaluation before the school board on the same day. It's
 one thing to be spirited on a normal day with face paint and a crazy 
 outfit, and another thing when paint and a crazy outfit may cost a teacher
 dearly for not taking evaluations seriously. ____ doesn't want to be 
 criticized for a lack of school spirit, but she would also like to keep
 progressing as an educator. What should she do?

"Dress for Spirit Day" 75% Chance 
 ____ has never missed a spirit day, and she won't start now! Wearing her
 favourite war paint with her ultimate spirit uniform -- the disco clown
 costome -- ____ treads the halls with spirit fingers flying in the best
 of moods. Already a popular teacher, ____'s commitment to spirit and
 self-expression is a big hit with her co-workers, who've openly discussed
 making spirit day mandatory for faculty and staff. With much bravado, ____
 sashays into the room full of waiting board members, who are delighted to
 see someone who approaches their job with so much spirit. It doesn't take
 long before a unamimous decision is passed down to send ____ off to the
 local university as a Guest Lecturer -- ____ has been promoted!

"Dress for Spirit Day" 25% Chance 
 ____ is almost late for work because she can't decide between her football
 player on stilts or robotic cheerleader costumes. Evertually, robotic
 cheerleader wins out and ____ heads to work. With spirits high, ____ 
 bursts into the school, only to find she is the only one in costume. A 
 student walks up to ____ and tells her that spirit day was canceled at the
 last minute, and to check the memo in her email inbox. Humiliated, ____
 trudges into the evaluation to face a stone-faced wall of professionally
 dressed board members, all of whom received the memo. Luckily for ____'s
 pride, the board members cannot see the look on her face through the 
 robotic cheerleader mask when she is told she has been demoted to 
 Elementary School Teacher.

"Wear Normal Clothes" 25% Chance 
 ____ debates the issue all night in her mind, but falls asleep knowing
 the safest course is to dress normally. Little does ____ know that this
 year's theme for Spirit Day is the uneventful, but ironically convenient
 "Dress Like You Always Would for Spirit!" Wearing her typical duds, 
 ____ wins favour with both camps - the spiritists and the school board -
 which results in her winning the costume of the day award from the former
 and a raise from the latter. ____ heads home with §1200 Simoleons.

"Wear Normal Clothes" 75% Chance 
 ____ hates backing out of a Spirit Day, but the career must come first!
 The principal immediately notices the distraught look on ____'s face,
 and comforts her by telling that she made the right choice by wearing
 normal clothes. Both, however, were quite wrong. The chairman of the
 board, Edgar Louie, is devoted to Spirit Day in a rather fanatical way
 and he refuses to see ____ for her evaluation when he notices her 
 that she isn't in costume. Confused and a bit angry, ____ is sent home
 for the day with a fine of §960 for not showing enough spirit.

*University Guest Lecturer*
***************************

"____ is requested by Sim State University's meteorology and sociology
 departments to lecture on the growing complexity of weather control

 presentation moves along at a fine pace, with facts and opinions from
 both sides of the argument being presented. At the conclusion, ____
 opens the floor to questions, when a rather smarmy looking graduate
 student in the front row asks "What do you think?" Should ____ say
 she is pro-control or pro-natural weather?"

"Pro-Control" 75% Chance 
 ____ knows that she can't please everyone, so she just picks a side. 
 "Personally, I hate waiting for my plants to grow, especially when I'm 
 in climates with far less rain," explains ____. "With weather control, I
 have fruit much faster! Don't you like delicious fruit?" The student
 who asked the question follows up with the accusation that ____ is mad to
 think she can control the elements, but the crowd, too busy imagining
 delicious fruit faster, laughs at the student's paranoia. ____'s old
 high school, impressed with her ability to stand firm on controversial
 issues, invites her to come back to serve as the Principal -- ____ has
 been promoted!

"Pro-Control" 25% Chance 
 ____ begins sweating profusely, because she honestly doesn't have an
 answer. she never thought to form an opinion, as she was always too
 busy studying both sides of the argument. ____ blurts out a hesitant
 "pro-control" and the crowd erupts with furious questions and accusations
 that ____ is a mad scientist bent on world domination. ____ quickly flees
 the scene to avoid further verbal abuse heaved forth from the angry mob.
 For causing a ruckus within the Sim State University crowd, ____ is asked
 never to return and is demoted to High School Teacher.

"Pro-Natural" 25% Chance 
 To a reception of mixed groans and nods of approval, ____ announces she
 is pro-natural weather. When asked "Why?" ____ calmly explains that her
 fear about how, in the wrong hands, the weather control device could be a
 devastating force from which the world may never recover. With acceptance
 from the majority of the crowd and even respect from the Pro-Control
 opposition, ____ leaves the podium to a standing ovation. The University
 calls ____ on her way home and requests she return - she is the best
 speaker they've had in years! With several more speaking engagements 
 arranged, ____ returns home with an unexpected bonus of §2460 Simoleons.

"Pro-Natural" 75% Chance 
 Without replying directly, ____ begins describing a utopia in which the
 weather is naturally perfect, plants grow on time, and winter storms 
 never leaves Sims frozen in the back yard. People begin cheering, thinking

 the unexpected is more fun!" Not enamored with her "let it be" attitude, the
 crowd begins shouting at to "get off the stage before the unexpected 
 happens." Not willing to wait around, ____ flees, more than willing to accept
 the §1800 Simoleon fine levied against her by the University for failing to
 complete her lecture.

*High School Principal*
***********************

"____ is becoming increasingly worried about students falling asleep in class.
 Teachers can bearly teach the students anything and morale is at an all time
 low. ____ brings in a group of consultants and they offer two solutions to
 the problem. The first is to use Ombutronic Generators to cool the school to
 near freezing temperatures, making it impossible to fall asleep. The 
 alternative is arming every teacher, aide, and gym coach with a personal
 bullhorn to wake drowsy students. Both choices are rather extreme, though
 desperate times call for desperate measures. What plan should ____ 
 implement?"

"Chill the School" 65% Chance 
 ____ pulls the speech, turning the school into a veritable cave of ice. 
 Though certain changes had to be endured, like increasing the size of lockers
 to accommodate parkas and hooking up hot cocoa to flow from the water 
 fountains, the renewed alertness of the students makes everyone forget the
 sacrifices being made. ____ completes the transformation by changing the 
 school's mascot to the mammoth and is in the crowd when the Mammoths defeat
 the Fightin' Llamas in the high school ice hockey tournament. ____ earns
 a Logic Skill Point.

"Chill the School" 35% Chance 
 Convinced a limited version of the ice age is the only solution, ____ pulls
 the switch to begin the Ombutronic Generator's cold reign. The experiment
 is successful initially, but it isn't long before the generator creates an
 internal blizzard and the inhabitants of the school are trapped inside.
 ____ quickly organises the school into survival teams to gather around fires
 of term papers, which keeps everyone alive until help arrives. However, the
 damage is done, and the administration is quick to inform ____ that she has 
 been demoted to University Guest Lecturer.

"Bullhorns for All" 35% Chance 
 ____ decides it will be noise or nothing to keep the students awake. The 
 teachers love the idea and ____ is quick to encourage creativity. It isn't
 before long before the teachers cast aside their bullhorns in favour of 
 steel drums, trombones, grandfather clocks on wheels, and remote control 
 cars with horns that play "La Cucaracha." The students, not wanting to miss
 out on the fun, quickly form several musical groups. Surprisingly, the 
 school becomes known as the best music school in the district and ____ is 
 invited by the local college to join their staff as a Senior Professor.
 ____ has been promoted!

"Bullhorns for All" 65% Chance 
 ____ think it's best if the teachers use bullhorns to keep the students
 awake. It isn't a big surprise when students stay awake for lectures after
 one or two bullhorns are unleashed, though the teachers feel a bit foolish
 when the majority of the students suffer temporary hearing loss. Unable to
 teach students who cannot hear, ____ is forced to admit failure, and the
 classrooms are once again filled with snoring students who for the time
 being also cannot hear. To help recover the cost of the bullhorns and for
 ear treatment for the students, ____ is forced to pay §2340 Simoleons!

*College Senior Professor*
**************************

"____ could really use the grant money offered with the London Scholarship
 for Immense Brains, but she hasn't published a paper in quite some time.
 There are a few topics of interest about which to write, most notably The
 Effect of Vegetables on the Sim Physique and Frostbite: A World Without
 Toes. Both subjects are quite compelling and will make excellent papers,
 so it isn't an easy decision. What subject should ____ write about to win
 the London Scholarship?"

"The Effect of Vegetables" 50% Chance 
 The current health crazy revolves squarely around vegetables and healthy
 eating, so it's a no-brainer that ____ choose to write about Tge Effect
 of Vegetables on the Sim Physique. Most of ____'s research reveals nothing
 terribly noteworthy, until she stumbles across a startling fact - the rare
 combination of pesticides and just a pinch of luck can turn a Sim into a 
 living, breathing, chlorophyll loving creature of nature! The paper hits
 the London Scholarship commitee like a blizzard in Strangetown and ____ is
 awarded the grant of §4000 Simoleons.

"The Effect of Vegetables" 50% Chance 
 Eating healthy and Sim well-aging are huge topics throughout the community,
 which makes The Effect of Vegetables on the Sim Physique the obvious choice
 of ____'s paper. After hours of detailed research, ____ feels she has 
 enough material to present a fantastic paper. Unfortunately, Donald 
 Somersby, another talented professor vying for the grant, presents his 
 paper - Celery and You: How Peanut Butter Will Change Your Life - to 
 greater acclaim. ____ never had a chance against the deliciousness of celery
 combined with peanut butter. Worse, she has been demoted to High School 
 Principal for failing to win the grant.

"Frostbite" 50% Chance 
 Because of the threat of winter storms, Sims everywhere are clamouring 
 for more information on the subject of frostbite, make ____'s decision to
 publish her paper - Frostbite: A World Without Toes - an easy decision.
 ____'s paper is filled with an in-depth analysis on the causes of 
 frostbite, preventive measures, and how to look stylish while wearing snow
 boots. ____'s unprecidented work on the subject is honoured by the committee,
 but it doesn't receive top honours. Fortunately, virtually everyone who reads
 the paper rushes out to buy new snow boots and Snowzen Bootzen, the world's
 largest manufacturer of Snow Boots, compensates ____ with §6000 Simoleons
 for promoting their product so effectively!

"Frostbite" 50% Chance 
 ____ thinks long and hard about her choices, but ultimately, Frostbite: A 
 World Without Toes is what she decides is her best option. After all, people
 love keeping their toes! ____ spends an entire afternoon researching, but she
 fails to come up with anything conclusive, other than the common sense notion
 of wearing warm clothing when it's very cold. Without a decisive thesis, ____
 has no chance to win the London Scholarship and she withdraws from the 
 competition. The university is not happy with ____ and she is ordered to pay
 them §4000 Simoleons to cover the cost of research.

**************************
*College Dean of Students*
**************************

"Dean ____ is having trouble with a particular fraternity on campus, the Zigga
 Bugga Goos. The young men have a tendancy to conduct pranks on facility 
 members, throw obnoxious parties, and crash the homecoming parade every year
 with unnecessary fireworks and gaudy rock music. ____ has had enough! There
 are only two ways to deal with a fraternity this misbehaved: Kick the charter
 off campus, or pay a sorority to sabotage their social status. ____ is pretty
 sure both methods will work, but she isn't sure which one is best. What 
 should ____ do?"

"Kick them off Campus" 55% Chance 
 ____ is so confident in her decision that she drafts the Zigga Bugga Goos 
 expulsion notice immediately. After a short lunch, ____ returns to her office
 to find the leaders of the fraternity gathered around her desk. All of them 
 being begging ____ in the hopes she will reduce their punishment. ____, 
 sensing an opportunity, agrees to reduce their punishment to probation if
 every member of the fraternity agrees to a semester of community service,
 to which they agree. For diplomatically resolving such a troubling situation,
 ____ is promoted to Education Minister!

"Kick them off Campus" 45% Chance 
 Dean ____ is so frustrated by the Zigga Bugga Goos that she decides the best
 course of action is immediate expulsion. ____ quickly drafts the expulsion
 notice without consulting any of her advisors and sends the letter off to the
 fraternity. Unbeknownst to ____, the fraternity just held a conference with
 campus press, renouncing their devilish ways and promising a student life
 dedicated to community service. ____'s letter arrives at the end of the
 conference and the student paper instantly publishes an editorial titled 
 "Dean ____ Closes the Door on Charitable Fraternity". The administration
 is broadsided by student protests and finds that the easiest thing to do is
 to fire Dean ____.

"Hire the Sorority" 45% Chance 
 ____ needs to put a stop to the Zigga Bugga Goos' reign of juvenile
 destruction, but she wants to keep her hands clean. Therefore, the best 
 sorority on campus is recruited to destroy the fraternity's social status 
 with better parties, cooler t-shirts, and the best bonfire the campus has
 ever seen. The Zigga Bugga Goos try to mount a counter-offensive of social
 events, but ultimately fails. Defeated, the fraternity begs for a cease
 fire. By stopping them, Dean ____ becomes the first dean in history to tame
 the Zigga Bugga Goos. For such a momentous triumph, Dean ____ is promoted
 to Education Minister.

"Hire the Sorority" 55% Chance 
 ____ hires the sorority and tells them to do whatever it takes to destroy the
 Zigga Bugga Goos. Unfortunately, the Ziggas have already infiltrated every 
 other house on campus, so they know about Dean ____'s Plan A before she could
 even imagine a Plan B. The plan backfires completely when the Ziggas release
 copies of the contract and recordings between the Dean and the sorority to
 the school newspapers. What becomes knowns as Zigga Gate ultimately ends in
 the downfall of ____, as the board of regents is left with little choice but
 to demote her to Senior Professor.

********************

"The country is not happy with test scores for children in neighbourhoods
 throughout the country. Polls indicate that the children just aren't 
 learning, and drastic, unorthodox measures should be taken to put the 
 nation's youth back on the right track. Secretary ____ proposes to the 
 government a new curriculum of educational video games. Ideally, she
 proposes, children can learn and have fun at the same time. Two games really
 stand out: Bixby Rabbit and the Great Spelling Carrot, and Hunting and 
 Fishing: Scavenging for Algebra! The budget only allows for one of the two
 games. Which one should ____ choose?

"Bixby Rabbit" 75% Chance 
 Maybe it had something to do with the delicious carrot she was eating, or
 perhaps it was the compelling story of Bixby saving the rabbit community
 through good spelling that led ____ to choose Bixby Rabit and the Great 
 Spelling Carrot. Nonetheless, schools across the country are soon filled 
 with the compelling Edugame and grades begin to skyrocket. ____ is praised
 by the Government, her peers, and educators everywhere for picking such a 
 compelling spelling experience that is so effective spelling bees are no 
 longer held - they are just too easy! For saving the education of Sims
 everywhere, ____ is awarded a bonus of §45000 Simoleons by the Government!

"Bixby Rabbit" 25% Chance 
 ____ considers the two games for quite some time, but ultimately settles 
 on Bixby Rabbit, believing cute bunnies who spell are more effective 
 than algebra games. ____ is almost correct, except for one tiny detail - 
 earlier the same day, the president decided to approve a law, making New
 Simlish the offical language. Unfortunately, Bixby Rabbit teaches what is
 now known as Old Simlish and children across the country are instructed
 in a dead language. For setting children back years in their education,
 ____ is demoted to Dean of Students.

"Scavenging for Algebra" 25% Chance 
 ____ always loved the idea of algebra in the great outdoors amongst a
 running brook or deer trail, so she approves a copy of Hunting and Fishing:
 Scavenging for Algebra for every child. ____ made the right choice,
 because not only are algebra scores at an all time low, but the country's
 desire to fish is at an all time high. Scavenging for Algebra hits the spot
 so perfectly that ____ goes ahead and orders the developer's second title,
 Trapping Some Fractions. The adminstration is awed by ____'s brillant 
 handling of the situation and decides to reward her with a bonus of §5000
 Simoleons!

"Scavenging for Algebra" 75% Chance 
 Sim everywhere won't stop talking about fishing, so ____ thinks it's only
 right to combine that love with the dire need to improve algebra scores.
 Unfortunately, the fishing craze dies down as quickly as it starts and 
 children everywhere begin to talk incessantly of carrots. With a small
 mountain of Scavenging for Algebra unopened and unwanted, ____ is forced
 to sell them back at a loss, resulting in a hit of §37000 Simoleons on
 her personal bank account!

"____ quickly gathers the files for Mr. Vanderseaux's big case. He will be 
 arguing before the Grand Court of Sim City and his paperwork must be all 
 ready in perfect order, else he may lose the case. Just before ____ plans to
 turn in the files, she realises that Mr. vanderseaux will only accept his 
 files if they are ordered in a particular way. But how? There's the obvious
 choice, alphabetical order, but ____ also seems to remember something about 
 Mr. Vanderseaux perferring his files to be ordered by colour. How should 
 ____ organise the files?"

"Alphabetical Order" 15% Chance
 ____'s alphabetising skills may be a bit rusty, but her common sense isn't.
 Alphabetical order is obviously the way Mr. Vanderseaux wants his files, 
 because he's always yelling at his employees to "keep it simple!" ____
 delivers the files just as Vanderseaux is leaving - perfect timing! He 
 takes one quick look at the files, lets forth a satisfied grunt, and 
 utters a "good job." ____ earns a logic skill point!

"Alphabetical Order" 85% Chance
 Mr. Vanderseaux receptionist phones ____ and demands the files immediately.
 ____ is still busy to figure out the best way to organise the files, but 
 time is running out and she decides alphabetisation seems to be the  
 simplist, most obvious fit. In her haste ____ made the wrong decision. The
 receptionist, furious at the improperly organised files, throws them back
 in ____'s face and tells her it may be best if she works elsewhere. ____
 is fired!

"Order by Colour" 85% Chance
 ____ was always a visual person, so she decides colours would be the best
 way of organising the files. When she arrives in Mr. Vanderseaux office with
 the files, he takes one look at the files and excitedly exits his chair to
 greet her. He wasn't used to receiving files organised by colour, but his
 recent memo indicated he wanted File Clerks to being doing just that - 
 apparently, ____ was the only one to read the memo. Mr. Vanderseaux is so
 pleased with ____ that he decides to promote her to Law Firm Receptionist.

"Order by Colour" 15% Chance
 ____ hates to see multi-coloured papers scattered about, so she organises
 the files by colour, hoping Mr. Vanderseaux approves. He doesn't, which ____
 quickly discovers after delivering the file stack to him. Apparently, a  
 concentration of colour makes his head hurt quite a bit. ____'s mistake keeps
 him from working for the rest of the day and he loses his case before the
 Grand Court of Sim City! Vanderseaux aims to appeal the courts decision, 
 but for the meantime, he fines ____ §125 Simoleons to purchase headache

"____ picks up the phone, only to hear Allison Bersowitz on the other line.

 the situation. She can convince Mr. Vanderseaux to represent her, though he
 may not be happy about it. Or, ____ can find Bersowitz another lawyer, though
 Vanderseaux may not appreciate her helping his competition. How should
 ____ get Allison Bersowitz out of her hair?

"Convince Vanderseaux" 75% Chance
 Mr. Vanderseaux is extremely busy, but ____ would hate to see him pass up a 
 potentially good case like Allison Bersowitz. After a bit of convincing, 
 Vanderseaux agrees to take on Bersowitz v. Sim City, only to find that he
 may have the biggest case of his career before him! It appears Bersowitz is
 the victim of an elaborate repoman scam where the civil servents would remove
 household items, even though she had been paying her bills. Vanderseaux 
 presents her case and wins, earning the law firm a healthy portion of the
 settlement. Vanderseaux feels obligated to reward ____ and he gives her a 
 check for §320 Simoleons.

"Convince Vanderseaux" 25% Chance
 ____ figures the law firm may be able to earn some money from the Bersowitz
 case, so she convinces Vanderseaux to finally take it. After a brief 
 consultation, the law firm realises that it won't earn anything from
 Bersowitz, as she is suing the snow for killing her garden. Greatly peeved
 at the waste of an afternoon, Vanderseaux summons ____ into his office to
 yell at her, after which he tells her to head back to the file room, ____
 has been demoted!

"Recommend Another Lawyer" 25% Chance
 ____ has been listening to Allison Bersowitz for weeks, and frankly, she 
 just wants to be rid of her. ____ grabs the phone books, flips to the
 Lawyers section, and randomly chooses an attorney named Sam Hogan. Bersowitz,
 thrilled somebody finally spent a minute to help her, thanks ____ and hangs 
 up the phone. Later in the day, the phone begins ringing off the hook,
 apparently, Bersowitz recommended the Vanderseaux office to all of her 
 friends in need of legal representation. Vanderseaux is delighted to have
 the new business and he promotes ____ to Legal Secretary to deal with all
 of his new clients.

"Recommend Another Lawyer" 75% Chance
 ____ is so tired of Allison Bersowitz that she opens the phone book and 
 gives her the number of the first lawyer she finds. Bersowitz thanks her
 and hangs up the phone. Later during break, ____ and Mr. Vanderseaux see
 Bersowitz and her new lawyer on television, announcing their victory in a
 landmark court case. The settlement is huge, which means big money and 
 prestige for the law firm. Vanderseaux is so angry with ____ that he fires
 her without even asking for an explanation.

 others and demands her husband be put on the phone immediately. ____ is 
 about to comply, until she remembers Mr. Vanderseaux is currently meeting
 with a very important client and he doesn't need the stress from talking to
 his wife. Should ____ patch Mrs. Vanderseaux through, or keep her on the
 line until her husband is finished?"

"Patch Her Through" 25% Chance

 is furious with ____'s behaviour and he charges her §410 Simoleons to repair
 the phone system.

"Keep Her on the Line" 75% Chance
 ____ decides to take one for the team and distract Mrs. Vanderseaux long
 enough to let her boss do his job. The evil wife wastes no time in being mean

 ____ from the onslaught and he immediately picks up the line. At the end of
 the day, Mr. Vanderseaux apologises to ____ for having to deal with his
 wife, and to make up for it, guarantees she will never have to speak to the
 woman again, because ____ is now a Legal Biller!

"Keep Her on the Line" 25% Chance
 Mrs. Vanderseaux calls to yell at her husband daily, so ____ figures it won't

 eagering awaiting his wife's phone call - she has important information for
 him regarding the case! After quite some time, the client leaves the meeting

"____ is busy collecting money her boss earned in various legal settlements 
 when the oddity on one billing statement catches her eye. It appears her 
 boss, Mr. Vanderseaux, was never compensated for his work on the Landgrabb v.
 Sim City case. Vanderseaux is entitled with 25% of the settlement, but a bit
 of time has passed and that money is most definately worth more. ____ can 
 give the Landgrabbs a call to demand the 25%, or take the risk and sue them
 for more. What's her move?"

"Ask for 25%" 35% Chance
 ____ is sure the Landgrabbs merely overlooked the fees in their case, so she
 gives them the benefit of the doubt and leaves them with a friendly message
 that they owe the firm. The Landgrabb's personal assistant immediately calls
 back, clearly embarrassed for forgetting about the fee. He does have good
 news - the money was set aside in an investment fund and the amount has grown
 quite a bit more than the original 25%. He explains to ____ that the 
 Landgrabbs feel obligated to make amends, so they transfer the entire fund 
 over to the firm. Mr. Vanderseaux, feeling extra belevolent and giving, 
 rewards ____ with §560 Simoleons!

"Ask for 25%" 65% Chance
 ____ places a call to the Landgrabb office and is placed on hold. Meanwhile,
 Mr. Vanderseaux pages her and asks about the 25% the Landgrabbs owe him.
 Not wanting to admit she overlooked the billing, ____ lies to him with a 
 cover story. However, he senses that something fishy is up and he heads down
 to talk to ____ in person, only to find her discussing the 25% fee with the
 Landgrabbs. Before she can explain. Vanderseaux accuses her of stealing from
 him and he orders her out of his office -- ____ has been fired!

"Sue for More" 65% Chance
 It isn't right that the Landgrabbs "forgot" to pay Mr. Vanderseaux, so 
 ____ files a claim with the court. The Landgrabbs immediately counter-sue
 but the judge, who is trying to leave for vacation, settles in ____'s 
 favour because it's the first argument that landed on his desk. Vanderseaux,
 impressed with ____'s incredible luck decides it's best if she works more
 closely with him and promotes ____ to Paralegal!

"Sue for More" 35% Chance
 ____ has wanted to flex her admittedly limited legal muscle and the Landgrabb
 issue is the perfect case. She carefully files all the paperwork and drops 
 off the claim with the court. Upon her return to the office, ____ is greeted
 by a very angry Mr. Vanderseaux who demands to know why ____ would sue his
 business partner. Apparently, Vanderseaux asked the Landgrabbs to hold onto
 his 25% fee for taxation purposes and ____'s lawsuit will trigger an
 investigation into the whole matter. Vanderseaux appreciates ____'s
 cuttroat initiative, but ultimately think it's best if she is demoted to 
 Legal Secretary.

*Paralegal*

"____ is reviewing the statements obtained in a series of witness interviews,
 but one of them seems to be a bit strange. The witness, Carmen Eggers, 
 refused to answer many of the questions asked to her. In fact, based on her
 reported location at the time of the crime, some of the answers may fill in
 some of the gaps in the case. Of course, she might also not know anything.
 Should ____ subpoena her for additional questioning, or look elsewhere for
 answers?"

"Subpoena Carmen" 80% Chance
 Facts and instincts are two good things a paralegal should never ignore, so
 ____ grabs her telephone, obtains a court order, and brings Carmen Eggers
 back into the office for questioning. Though a bit standoffish at first,
 Carmen soon warms up and provides ____ with all the answers she was seeking.
 All the gaps in the case aren't filled, but they are getting that way,

 leaves the office, only to return later with a lawsuit in her hands -- 
 ____ is being sued for "Undue stress and personal frustration" and she is 
 forced to settle out of court for §750 Simoleons!

"Look Elsewhere" 20% Chance

 his head after messing with some industrial glue at work. ____ can settle for
 the cost of her client's medical expenses, or sue her client's employers for 
 the medical expenses plus compensatory damages. ____'s client is mostly at
 fault for the accident, so the evidence is shaky at best. Then again, it is
 quite a lot of Simoleons. Which settlement should ____ pursue?

"Medical Costs" 80% Chance
 ____'s client is a clumsy fool and she would hate to punish the company for
 her client's mistake. The company is more than willing to settle for the

 cards and keeps up contacts with the company. ____ earns a Charisma Skill 
 Point.

"Medical Costs" 20% Chance

 in pursuing compensatory damages. However, ____ probably should have put up

 lawyers sense weakness in ____'s case due to her bare minimum demands and 
 they counter-attack with full force. ____ finds herself ill-prepared to
 present what she assumed was an open/shut case and the defence rolls over her
 case. ____'s client isn't amused - he demends ____ can pay §1125 Simoleons to
 cover his medical expenses!

"Compensatory Damages" 20% Chance

"____ scratches her head in confusion, unable to decide the course of action

 properly, even though he is a multi-millionaire businessman. ____'s client
 simply wants the issue to go away and she has given ____ free reign to 
 resolve the issue. ____ can settle with Greg, or counter-sue for slandering
 the mother. It's a difficult decision and McPear has more than enough money
 to hire a stellar legal team.

 The easiest way to get the case out of the way is to settle quickly and out
 of the public eye. ____ calls Greg McPear and invites him to her office to

 them sporting huge grins. Unbeknownst to ____, the McPear's pull a prank on
 one of their lawyers every year and it just so happens to be ____'s turn.

 of an entire day! ____ loses a Charisma Skill Point.

"Counter-Sue for Slander" 75% Chance
 ____ has little patience for those who sue her clients so she quickly files
 a counter-suit. Greg McPear's office is quite stunned at first, because Greg
 and his mother have been fighting for years and Mrs. McPear has never had a 
 lawyer that fought back so decisively. Greg McPears rescinds his lawsuit 
 and calls his mother to ask for an emotional settlement instead. Mrs. McPear,
 glad to be finally rid of the foolish quabble, rewards ____ with the §3000
 Simoleons she would have earned had she finished the case in court.

"Counter-Sue for Slander" 25% Chance

 so she counter-sues, hoping that scares him enough to close the issue. 
 Unfortunately, the opposite occurs and Greg ups the ante by offering evidence
 that his mother conducted illicit business dealings when he was but a boy, 
 "corrupting his ethics permanently". Unaware of her client's business 
 dealings, ____ has little choice but to back down in the face of superior

 a new lawyer -- ____ is promoted to Entertainment Attorney.

"Help the Mazovs" 35% Chance
 ____ jumps into the legal fray and orders the local police chief take action
 against the hotel. The police chief, a member of the luggage theft ring, 
 ignores the Mazovs and ____ and calls the magistrate to have them evicted
 from the country. This is unfortunate for ____, as she is removed from 
 Hartson before she can complete her business. The firm back in Sim City is 
 not pleased to hear the news and they refuse to cover the cost of the trip --
 ____ must pay §8000 Simoleons out of her own pocket.

"Get Back to Work" 35% Chance

 really needs to focus on her client's case instead. Some time later, a co-

 After all, scandal sells more papers than love! Natalia asks ____ to fix the
 situation and punish The Weekend Star before they can publish the photos, 
 which she can do quietly by talking to the editors at their office, or by
 suing them publicly for libel."

"Speak with the Editors" 35% Chance
 ____ opens her rolodex and places a call to the editors of The Weekend Star

 sandwiches before getting down to business. The editors claim they won't
 publish the false pictures if Natalia announces her relationship with Nigel.

 receives two Charisma Skill Points!

"Speak with the Editors" 65% Chance

"____ is walking the city streets to make sure every citizen fully understands
 the laws, when the clouds darken overhead and a cry for help rings out. ____
 quickly moves into action and is beside the citizens within minutes. People
 are naturally terrified of the storm clouds - rightfully so! - as they are

 for them to be declared lawful. Only The Law -- ____ - can decide!"

"Make them Illegal" 15% Chance
 ____ thinks long and hard - it isn't every day that The Law is changed.  
 Finally, she announces her decision to make the weather control devices 
 illegal for the common Sim to use. Stating that they pose dangers to society
 that no mere mortal can face alone. ____ offers the crown protection of The
 Law. Everyone cheers, even those opposed to her decision initially and a

 decision, pays her §46000 Simoleons as a consultation fee for amending the
 law!

"Make them Illegal" 85% Chance
 ____ ponders the implications of her decision, and ultimately decides weather
 control devices should not be legal for people to use. One furious gardener
 steps forth and explains to ____ how the weather control device saved his
 crop, and therefore, his entire family. More gardeners and orchard owners
 come forth with similar stories, followed by those who own winter resorts.
 Simoleons sometimes overpower the judgement of The Law and ____ is forced
 to back down for the public's financial well-being. ____ loses 2 Logic
 Skill Points.

"Make them Legal" 85% Chance
 Power is used responsibly at best, so ____, putting utter faith in the 
 civilians around her, announces the weather control devices will be legal.
 The crown rejoices and celebrates by eating vegetables freshly grown by the

 common sense, write ____ a check to thank her amounting to §43000 Simoleons.

"Make them Legal" 15% Chance
 ____ doesn't like to use The Law to restrict others, so she decrees weather

*Yearbook Club Supervisor*
**************************

"____ is just about to sign off this year's yearbook for final printing when
 one of the editors makes a startling discovery - somebody replaced the 
 principal's picture with an image of a toilet. The joke could cost ____ her
 job and all the students could face serious detention time. On the other
 hand, the yearbook is already over budget and the principal may find it
 funny, especially in light of the money that would be saved. Should ____
 recall the yearbook to edit the image, or let it remain and hope for the
 best?"

"Recall the Yearbook" 25% Chance
 ____ isn't about to face the principal's wrath, so she picks up the phone 
 and recalls the yearbook from the publisher. While waiting for the publisher
 to email the files over, ____ looks over her versions of the yearbook and
 notices something odd, the principal's picture is normal, not replaced with
 the toilet. ____ calls the publisher and they admit swapping out the photos
 as a joke. ____ brings the school district's legal advisors into the fray
 and within minutes the publisher agrees to pay for the entire yearbook
 printing, which leaves enough money in the school budget for the principal
 to award ____ a bonus of §175 Simoleons!

"Recall the Yearbook" 75% Chance
 ____ places a call to the publisher and recalls the yearbook, then proceeds
 to phone the principal to ask for a bit more money from the school district's
 budget. After explaining the situation, the principal is livid - he doesn't
 care about the picture, because in his words he's "not some silly child". 
 The money spent to recall and re-edit the yearbook will cost the district
 a bit too much and some jobs will need to be eliminated. ____ is fired!

"Leave it in" 75% Chance
 ____ knows the school district cannot afford a yearbook recall, so she takes
 a chance and tells the publisher to move ahead with the printing. Knowing 
 it's probably best not to leave things to chance, ____ also calls the 
 principal and tells him about the unfortunate error. The principal is a bit
 annoyed at first, but he ultimately comes around when ____ makes a normally
 lame joke about toilets and flushing. Before the phone call ends, the 
 principal thanks ____ for making the difficult decision to save the school
 district money, even at the chance of losing her job. ____ earns a Charisma
 Skill Point.

"Leave it in" 25% Chance
 ____ assumes that the principal would rather the school stay within budget
 than have his picture appear correctly in the yearbook, so she calls the
 publisher and tells them to proceed with the printing. The publisher, not
 eager to be blamed for the picture swap, calls the principal up as well
 and explains the situation from their perspective. The principal isn't
 pleased at all. He calls ____ into his office and orders her to recall
 the yearbook at her own personal expense. ____ pays §185 Simoleons for the
 yearbook reprint!

*Blog Writer*
*************

"____'s Blog is starting to get a decent amount of website traffic, which 
 means site maintenance costs are going up. There are two ways to cover
 the cost: ____ can begin using banner ads on the site, or she can begin
 selling t-shirts. Both options have proven to be successful, though banner
 ads may anger the readers, and t-shirt sales can be a bit of a hassle.
 What should ____ do to cover the website costs?"

"Host Banner Ads" 15% Chance
 ____ isn't sure what to do, until one of her favourite companies, the Lazy
 Beans Bean Bag Company - sends her an email asking for ad space. ____ has
 written numerous articles about the importance of a good bean bag, so she
 knows having ads for Lazy Beans is completely appropriate. Readers totally
 agree - the ads start bringing in a great deal of money and the message 
 boards contain very few complaints. Banner ads are a great win! ____ earns
 a Creativity Skill Point!

"Host Banner Ads" 85% Chance
 ____ figures banner ads will bring in the most money for the least effort,
 so she posts a link on the site asking for potential advertisers. No 
 businesses email the Blog, but complaints from readers start flooding in.
 In fact, readers are not only complaining, but they are offering 
 alternatives, most notably, T-Shirt sales. The owners of the blogging 
 service aren't too pleased with ____'s controversial decision and the staff
 decide it would be best if she went elsewhere -- ____ is fired!

"Sell T-Shirts" 85% Chance
 ____ has a few great T-Shirt ideas floating around in her head and she makes
 the call to begin selling T-Shirts. The readers react more than favourably
 and the initial number offered on the site sell out before ____ can even 
 order them from the manufacturer. In fact, ____ believes t-shirt sales will
 continue so well, that she may be able to get her own website. A consortium
 of online writers agree and they ask ____ to join them -- ____ is promoted
 to Internet Movie Critic!

"Sell T-Shirts" 15% Chance
 ____ proposes T-Shirt sales as the way to cover the cost of site maintenance,
 but the idea isn't too popular. Apparently, one of the other bloggers already
 sells t-shirts on her own website and she isn't too keen on the idea of a new
 competitor. Furthermore, the hassles of T-Shirt sales go well above and 
 beyond the time ____ was willing to spend. Until ____ is able to come up 
 with a better option, the blogging service firmly requests ____ pay §254 
 Simoleons to cover the cost of the blog's hosting.

*Internet Movie Critic*
***********************

"____ has just seen one of the worst films in years and it's time to write the
 review. Unfortunately, the advertising company that gives her the free press
 movie tickets doesn't look to favourably upon those who write scathing 
 reviews. If ____ writes an honest review, the tickets may stop coming.
 Then again, if she writes an extremely positive review, her readers may
 stop coming. What should ____ do?"

"Write an Honest Review" 85% Chance
 ____ loves free movie passes, but the continued success of the site, 
 bolstered by honest reviews, is what she values most. As soon as the review
 is posted the advertising company calls to demand the removal of the review
 from the website. ____ refuses to back down and they threaten to stop 
 sending movie passes. The advertising firm realises that ____ is serious,
 and they rescind their threat - they need ____ to keep writing reviews for
 her readers, even at the risk of the occasional bad one. It's a big win for
 ____! ____ earns a Creativity Skill Point.

"Write an Honest Review" 15% Chance
 ____ posts her negative review and, surprisingly enough, complaints begin
 filing in from the readers. Many of them saw the movie as well and they 
 think ____ is not only being entirely too harsh, but is probably just
 writing the negative review to be negative for once. Unable to persuade
 the readers otherwise on the message boards, ____ is left with nothing to
 do but sit back and sulk at her desk. ____ loses a Creativity Skill Point.

"Write a Positive Review" 15% Chance
 ____ figures it's best to keep the advertising firm happy, and besides, 
 it isn't like a positive review for a bad movie will end the world. Quite
 the opposite happens, in fact. The movie has record breaking day one sales - 
 it's the bad movie turned blockbuster hit of the summer - and ____ wrote
 one of the only positive reviews. Readers flock to her site to read the
 review and website traffic increases exponentially. The increase in site
 traffic causes ad revenue to increase as well and ____ heads home with a 
 bonus of §325 Simoleons!

"Write a Positive Review" 85% Chance
 ____ posts the positive review of the movie and her worst fears come to
 life. 99% of film reviewers panned the film. To make matter worst, the
 advertising firm that gave ____ the tickets publically apologised for
 promoting the film, cancelled their television ads and warned citizens 
 not to watch the movie. Unfortunately, this leaves ____ in a very, very
 small minority and she is discredited as a worthy film critic --- ____
 is fired!

**************

"____ is finishing the final pass of the newspaper before it heads to the
 printers when she finds an error that may not actually be an error. The
 article in questions says that Hector Reely finished making his first
 movie when he was 12, but ____ could have sworn that she read on the
 internet that Reely was really 15 when the movie was made. There's only
 enough time to comfirm this fact, or read through the rest of the 
 newspaper - is this fact worth checking?"

"Check the Fact" 35% Chance
 ____ think it's best if the facts concerning Reely, a somewhat famous
 actor, are correct. It turns out that the internet site ____ read about
 Reely was actually correct - who would have known? ____ swaps out the
 information so that it's accurate and sends in the manuscript with her
 comments. The editors in charge are quite impressed with ____'s
 machine-like attention to detail detail and faces and they decide to
 promote her to Obituary Writer!

"Check the Fact" 65% Chance
 ____ has to know if her memory is correct so she dives headfirst into
 the fact sheets regarding Hector Reely. After an hour or two of
 searching, ____ finds nothing to contradict what's stated in the
 article - the internet was wrong! During that time, ____ also forgot
 about her deadline and the newspaper won't be delivered to the
 printers on time. The editors unaminously decide ____ isn't quite
 simply for the newspaper and she is demoted to Blog Writer.

"Finish Reading" 65% Chance
 ____ is torn about the one fact, but she knows from experience that 
 there are surely more egregious mistakes in the rest of the article.
 Sure enough, an entire page of facts pertaining to individuals more
 famous than Reely glare at ____ from the paper. These are corrected, and the
 paper is sent off to the printers just in time to hit the deadline. ____'s
 boss, who has been observing her work the enture time, steps forward to
 praise ____ for ignoring the trivial facts and heading straight to the
 important facts - something he looks for in writers. ____ is promoted
 to Obituary Writer!

"Finish Reading" 35% Chance
 ____ decides to ignore the fact in question to move on to the rest of the 
 paper. ____ quickly breezes through the reminder of the paper without finding
 any errors, and without thinking, sends it to the printer before double 
 checking the original fact. Ignoring these spare minutes is quite costly
 for ____, because the obnoxiously arrogant Reely is furious when he reads
 the error in the preview final draft. Reely begins to throw a tantrum,
 so to diffuse the situation, ____'s boss informs her that she is fired!

 day, the sleazy yet beloved actor James "The Coach" MacGruder finally
 succumbed to old age. Unfortunately for ____, there's only enough room in

 Who should ____ write about?"

"Greg Orachi" 85% Chance
 ____ feels wholeheartedly that the much respected Greg Orachi deserves to
 have an obituary before MacGruder, a man whose scandal filled life is better
 detailed in a tabloid. The words in the obituary come naturally to ____, and

 so much that they decide to pay her a bonus of §450 Simoleons.

"Greg Orachi" 15% Chance

 obituaries.

 many of ____'s editors even said that she should have made up a few things
 just to keep it from being so boring. ____ loses a Creativity Skill Point.

 the right time! Should ____ instruct her readers to propose, or should she
 make up another horoscope to play it safe?"

"Tell Them to Propose" 75% Chance

 that isn't necessarily accurate. ____ writes for a random chance for a

 the phone system.

"Keep Her on the Line" 75% Chance
 ____ decides to take one for the team and distract Mrs. Vanderseaux long
 enough to let her boss do his job. The evil wife wastes no time in being mean

*Yearbook Club Supervisor*
**************************

"____ is just about to sign off this year's yearbook for final printing when
 one of the editors makes a startling discovery - somebody replaced the 
 principal's picture with an image of a toilet. The joke could cost ____ her
 job and all the students could face serious detention time. On the other
 hand, the yearbook is already over budget and the principal may find it
 funny, especially in light of the money that would be saved. Should ____
 recall the yearbook to edit the image, or let it remain and hope for the
 best?"

"Recall the Yearbook" 25% Chance
 ____ isn't about to face the principal's wrath, so she picks up the phone 
 and recalls the yearbook from the publisher. While waiting for the publisher
 to email the files over, ____ looks over her versions of the yearbook and
 notices something odd, the principal's picture is normal, not replaced with
 the toilet. ____ calls the publisher and they admit swapping out the photos
 as a joke. ____ brings the school district's legal advisors into the fray
 and within minutes the publisher agrees to pay for the entire yearbook
 printing, which leaves enough money in the school budget for the principal
 to award ____ a bonus of §175 Simoleons!

"Recall the Yearbook" 75% Chance
 ____ places a call to the publisher and recalls the yearbook, then proceeds
 to phone the principal to ask for a bit more money from the school district's
 budget. After explaining the situation, the principal is livid - he doesn't
 care about the picture, because in his words he's "not some silly child". 
 The money spent to recall and re-edit the yearbook will cost the district
 a bit too much and some jobs will need to be eliminated. ____ is fired!

"Leave it in" 75% Chance
 ____ knows the school district cannot afford a yearbook recall, so she takes
 a chance and tells the publisher to move ahead with the printing. Knowing 
 it's probably best not to leave things to chance, ____ also calls the 
 principal and tells him about the unfortunate error. The principal is a bit
 annoyed at first, but he ultimately comes around when ____ makes a normally
 lame joke about toilets and flushing. Before the phone call ends, the 
 principal thanks ____ for making the difficult decision to save the school
 district money, even at the chance of losing her job. ____ earns a Charisma
 Skill Point.

"Leave it in" 25% Chance
 ____ assumes that the principal would rather the school stay within budget
 than have his picture appear correctly in the yearbook, so she calls the
 publisher and tells them to proceed with the printing. The publisher, not
 eager to be blamed for the picture swap, calls the principal up as well
 and explains the situation from their perspective. The principal isn't
 pleased at all. He calls ____ into his office and orders her to recall
 the yearbook at her own personal expense. ____ pays §185 Simoleons for the
 yearbook reprint!

*************
*Blog Writer*
*************

"____'s Blog is starting to get a decent amount of website traffic, which 
 means site maintenance costs are going up. There are two ways to cover
 the cost: ____ can begin using banner ads on the site, or she can begin
 selling t-shirts. Both options have proven to be successful, though banner
 ads may anger the readers, and t-shirt sales can be a bit of a hassle.
 What should ____ do to cover the website costs?"

"Host Banner Ads" 15% Chance
 ____ isn't sure what to do, until one of her favourite companies, the Lazy
 Beans Bean Bag Company - sends her an email asking for ad space. ____ has
 written numerous articles about the importance of a good bean bag, so she
 knows having ads for Lazy Beans is completely appropriate. Readers totally
 agree - the ads start bringing in a great deal of money and the message 
 boards contain very few complaints. Banner ads are a great win! ____ earns
 a Creativity Skill Point!

"Host Banner Ads" 85% Chance
 ____ figures banner ads will bring in the most money for the least effort,
 so she posts a link on the site asking for potential advertisers. No 
 businesses email the Blog, but complaints from readers start flooding in.
 In fact, readers are not only complaining, but they are offering 
 alternatives, most notably, T-Shirt sales. The owners of the blogging 
 service aren't too pleased with ____'s controversial decision and the staff
 decide it would be best if she went elsewhere -- ____ is fired!

"Sell T-Shirts" 85% Chance
 ____ has a few great T-Shirt ideas floating around in her head and she makes
 the call to begin selling T-Shirts. The readers react more than favourably
 and the initial number offered on the site sell out before ____ can even 
 order them from the manufacturer. In fact, ____ believes t-shirt sales will
 continue so well, that she may be able to get her own website. A consortium
 of online writers agree and they ask ____ to join them -- ____ is promoted
 to Internet Movie Critic!

"Sell T-Shirts" 15% Chance
 ____ proposes T-Shirt sales as the way to cover the cost of site maintenance,
 but the idea isn't too popular. Apparently, one of the other bloggers already
 sells t-shirts on her own website and she isn't too keen on the idea of a new
 competitor. Furthermore, the hassles of T-Shirt sales go well above and 
 beyond the time ____ was willing to spend. Until ____ is able to come up 
 with a better option, the blogging service firmly requests ____ pay §254 
 Simoleons to cover the cost of the blog's hosting.

*Internet Movie Critic*
***********************

"____ has just seen one of the worst films in years and it's time to write the
 review. Unfortunately, the advertising company that gives her the free press
 movie tickets doesn't look to favourably upon those who write scathing 
 reviews. If ____ writes an honest review, the tickets may stop coming.
 Then again, if she writes an extremely positive review, her readers may
 stop coming. What should ____ do?"

"Write an Honest Review" 85% Chance
 ____ loves free movie passes, but the continued success of the site, 
 bolstered by honest reviews, is what she values most. As soon as the review
 is posted the advertising company calls to demand the removal of the review
 from the website. ____ refuses to back down and they threaten to stop 
 sending movie passes. The advertising firm realises that ____ is serious,
 and they rescind their threat - they need ____ to keep writing reviews for
 her readers, even at the risk of the occasional bad one. It's a big win for
 ____! ____ earns a Creativity Skill Point.

"Write an Honest Review" 15% Chance
 ____ posts her negative review and, surprisingly enough, complaints begin
 filing in from the readers. Many of them saw the movie as well and they 
 think ____ is not only being entirely too harsh, but is probably just
 writing the negative review to be negative for once. Unable to persuade
 the readers otherwise on the message boards, ____ is left with nothing to
 do but sit back and sulk at her desk. ____ loses a Creativity Skill Point.

"Write a Positive Review" 15% Chance
 ____ figures it's best to keep the advertising firm happy, and besides, 
 it isn't like a positive review for a bad movie will end the world. Quite
 the opposite happens, in fact. The movie has record breaking day one sales - 
 it's the bad movie turned blockbuster hit of the summer - and ____ wrote
 one of the only positive reviews. Readers flock to her site to read the
 review and website traffic increases exponentially. The increase in site
 traffic causes ad revenue to increase as well and ____ heads home with a 
 bonus of §325 Simoleons!

"Write a Positive Review" 85% Chance
 ____ posts the positive review of the movie and her worst fears come to
 life. 99% of film reviewers panned the film. To make matter worst, the
 advertising firm that gave ____ the tickets publically apologised for
 promoting the film, cancelled their television ads and warned citizens 
 not to watch the movie. Unfortunately, this leaves ____ in a very, very
 small minority and she is discredited as a worthy film critic --- ____
 is fired!

 ____ - she could dig up a copy of "Love, Forever, Now and Then" or recommend
 something else?"

"Sell the Album" 75% Chance
 It isn't ____'s problem that somebody else has terrible taste in music, so
 she points the customer towards the Good Lovin' Feelings aisle and goes back
 to reorganising the country music section. After some time the bell at the
 register rings and ____ looks up to see the customer waiting with a small
 mountain of albums. It appears the customer is a Good Lovin' Feelings fanatic
 and has bought up the entire inventory. ____ earns a pretty hefty commission
 of §60 Simoleons for her lack of effort!

"Sell the Album" 25% Chance
 ____ is more concerned with keeping her job than helping people listen to 
 quality music, so she points to the Good Lovin' Feelings aisle and goes
 back to reorganising the country music section. ____'s boss watches the
 whole thing transpire and storms up to ____ furiously. "How can you let that

 completely satisified and ____, her rock essence appeased, settles back into
 reorganising the country music section. ____ earns a Charisma Skill Point.

"Recommend Something Else" 75% Chance
 ____'s musical conscience is screaming for justice! She leaves the country
 music section and begins to show the customer a great variety of music that
 is better, much better, than "Love, Forever, Now and Then" album. However,
 the customer only becomes increasingly annoyed as ____ shows him yet another
 album that isn't "Love, Forever, Now and Then" and finally he demands to 
 speak to a manager. ____'s boss isn't too happy to hear the customer 
 complaint and she is fired for harassing customers.

 that comes with working alongside Mippaloti's specifications quickly 
 enough and ____ is allowed to sit back and watch the show. Unexpectedly,
 the chord emanating from the piano are strangely beautiful -- ____'s tuning

 promoted to Coffee Shop Sound Engineer!

"Tune the Piano" 75% Chance

 The concert comes and goes with the crowd showing little interest
 due to the sub par sounds emanating from the stage. Mippaloti, quick to
 save his career, convinces one reviewer after the show that the piano 
 wasn't tuned properly and places the blame squarely on the shoulders of

 treachery - she is fired!

"Decline the Job" 75% Chance
 Tuning the piano for the Arita Mippaloti concert is a huge deal, but being

 furious to see his request denied, but he has great respect for ____'s
 integrity and agrees to let her tune his piano properly. The ensuing
 concert is fantastic and the fans are once again stunned by Mippaloti's
 brillant performance. Meanwhile, ____'s name is being passed around the
 musicial circles as someone whose integrity and skill is without question!
 ____ earns a Logic skill point.

"Decline the Job" 25% Chance
 ____ is confident her integrity will take her further than a quick job with
 Mippaloti, so she declines the job and returns to her daily tuning duties.

This drink is necessary if you want to use an aspiration reward. This will 
give you the coveted Platinum Mood, allowing you to use aspiration rewards
without failure. Stock the ingredients, blend and drink. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[6.15] Tomato Juice

Ingredients = 6 Tomatoes

In my opinion, this drink is rather pointless. It warms up your Sim but you
have hot chocolate for that. Although it could have mysterious effects as
tomatoes are rich in something or another. Anyway, add 6 tomatoes and blend.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[6.16] Vegetable Cocktail

Ingredients = 1 Tomato, 1 Cucumber, 1 Pepper, 1 Pole Bean

Despite being a pain in the rear end to grow the plants, this drink will help
you build your skills faster. Not really worth it since you have to get 4
different plants. Anyway, just blend and drink. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[7.01] Starters

Fishing is a new addition to Seasons. It was not mentioned in a large manner
before the release, and when I read the manual, it was a surprise, albeit a
pleasant one. Anyway, to start fishing, you need to know a few basics.

1) You will need a pond to fish in. This is a natural pond and not a damn pool
   ok? You can do this under the landscaping in build mode. The pool needs to
   be the size of the second option, larger than 5 by 5 squares to fish.

2) There is a fishing badge. The higher the badge, the better bait you can use
   to catch your fish.

3) You cannot fish in winter as the pond will freeze over and won't be able to
   fish until the weather warms up a fair amount. That means that it is not
   guaranteed that you can fish back in Spring. 

When you have these items, you can get ready to fish. Generally speaking, you
can join people when you fish, nor do you need a boat. When you join people
while they are fishing, you will talk to them, developing a relationship with
them while catching the fish. Every fish that you catch will be sent to the
inventory, which now allows stacking. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[7.02] Bait

There are 4 different forms of bait that you can use to catch fish. The level
of the bait will increase your chances of catching rarer fish. The bait you
can use depends on your Badge skill. 

No Badge = Worm. There is no increased chance of catching anything.

Bronze Badge = Riverblossom Minnow. Increased chance of catching large mouth
               bass.

Silver Badge = Stink Ball Bait. Increases the chance of catching the blue
               catfish.

Gold Badge = Sparkle Spinner. Increases the chance of catching the rainbow
             trout.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[7.03] Percentages

The fish available for catch are available below as well as the change of 
catching them using the respective bait from the badge levels. Use the bait
section above if you aren't sure which bait is which. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Total Percentage        |  100%   |   100%    |   100%    |  100%   |
---------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the percentage of catching said fish. All the % add up to 100, I 
double checked. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[7.04] Catch

Now that you know how often you can catch the fish, you should know what they
sell for and do. When you catch a fish, it will be sent directly to your
inventory, how the Sims manage carrying raw fish in their pockets I don't
know. You can sell the fish directly, or mount it on the wall if they are 
proud of the catch. You can also stock it in the fridge. Note, if you mount
it on the wall, you can't use it to cook it. If you stock it in the fridge,
you cannot take it out of the fridge again. Just so you know. Below is the
table on the fish you can catch, the amount they sell for and the value of it
when it is mounted on the wall. When you mount the fish, you can just move the
fish to the wall and face it like a painting. The game will mount it for you,
free of charge. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Fish                   | When Sold for § | When Mounted on the Wall § |
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Boot (Size 15)         |       §15       |            §20             |
Largemouth Bass        |       §33       |            §34             |
Blue Catfish           |       §49       |            §65             |
Jumbo Largemouth Bass  |       §61       |            §81             |
Rainbow Trout          |       §87       |            §116            |
Jumbo Blue Catfish     |       §124      |            §165            |
Jumbo Rainbow Trout    |       §221      |            §295            | 
Golden Trout           |       §518      |            §691            |
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

This is why I don't suggest you cook the golden trout for the meal, it is 
worth far more than you think. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.01] Starters

Gardening is one of the main features of Seasons. This brings back the 
memories of the first Sims, and although they may not be the same produce, 
one thing is for sure, there are no unique dishes that require this. 

Anyway, to start a garden, you will either need some fruit trees or the 
vegetable patch. Trees will be dealt with later, so we now go on about the 
vegetable patch. To start, you need to go into the build mode. Notice how the
gardening section has been transformed a lot? Well, thats where we will 
start. Greenhouses will be dealt with later as well, so I won't go there as of
yet. 

Now, select the dirt patch. You will notice that it is sort of like building
a pool, drag the size of the patch that you want and that will be how big it
is. You can have a massive plot, or have it in stripes or rows for that 
matter. It really doesn't matter how you plot the patch, you need to know of
a few things.

When you crow crops, or trees for that matter, you will need the ladybug 
post to stop the bugs from infesting your crops. In a 5 by 5 plot, the post
in the centre will do just fine. If you don't want the lady bug loft, you can
always manually spray pesticide on the plants to kill the lady bugs. As a 
note, if you continue this action, you many mutate just a little. 

Now, you can plant some crops. At the start, you can only plant some tomatoes
which cost about §8 for a seed. You can plant one which plants the seed in 
that tile or plant many and your Sim will continue to plant seeds until they
are too tired to plant anymore, you have no more money left, you cancel the
command or the entire patch is filled up. 

Now that you have some seeds, you might be aware that you can fertilise the 
soil. This makes the plant happier and will be a boost from the normal state
that is normally is in. You can use compost to fertilise the soil or you can
purchase it at about §10 a pop. While we are on the issue of compost, you
can purchase the compost bin. It can hold about 30 items that can be composted
and will decompose these items slowly and over time, it will turn into compost
that you can spread over your garden. The items that I have discovered that
can be composted includes the NEWSPAPER, KITTY LITTER (from Pets), TRASH from
the trash compactor when dropped and LEAVES from trees in autumn. More on that
later. 

You have to look out for weeds while your plants are growing. These will be
shown as a little yellow-green growth at the base of the plant. You need to
weed out these little critters to keep your plant healthy. Also, like in real
life, the plants will need water. You can use the Hydrobot from Open for 
Business to water it, manually water it or purchase some sprinklers. These 
will automatically water plants that are within the radius or dome that is 
shown when you purchase the sprinkler. It will be found under the build 
section where you purchase the vegetable patch. 

Plants will take time to grow. If you have your patch outside, it will be 
exposed to the elements, the weather. If it rains, that means that the rain 
will water your plants. However, too much water is about as good as too little
water. Therefore, if their is too much water, your plant's health will decline
and you will see water pouring off their leaves. Snow and hail are not good 
for your plants either, damaging them pretty badly. It would either destroy 
or maim the plants, the effect unsure as I have a greenhouse. 

When the time is right, you will be able to harvest your produce, and like
the previous actions, you can harvest one or harvest many. Of course, by 
harvesting many, you will continue till something makes it stop. You can 
harvest it into your inventory or harvest and sell immediately. This will make
good money depending on the value of the crop. There are three levels, bland,
tasty and mouthwatering. The last one is what you aim for. Of course, the
level of the plant will determine how it will turn out. If it yellow, as in
the face, it will be tasty, dark yellow to orange will be bland while green
will be mouthwatering. With the produce in your inventory, you can now just
it in cooking, stock it into the fridge, which you cannot remove from if you
do so, or juice it. More on this later. 

If you have the Pets expansion pack, keep your animals well away from the 
plants if you want them to survive. Also, if you wait for weeding a plant, it
will drain the health of the plant. This goes the same for plants that require
a drink. Also, water many all the time when you have 2 or more plants. This
will prevent yourself from overwatering your plants. And remember, build the
lady bug loft, otherwise, you will sooner or later mutate into a PlantSim. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.02] Bronze

Once you get the hang of gardening, you will sooner or later, get the talent
badge. For those with Open for Business, you can ignore this, but those
without, talent badges are like skill points. Instead, there are 4 ranks.
The first rank is what you start with, nothing. Then, you move to bronze,
silver and finally, gold. Each talent badge will move you to another level,
allowing you to do some more nifty stuff, but you will need more experience
to get the next level. This talent badge is for gardening. Anyway, when you
have tended, weeded, planted, harvest enough, you will get this.

With this new badge, you are now able to plant strawberries and cucumbers in
your garden for the cost of §12 per seed for each of them. These can both be
planted on the vegetable patch. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.03] Silver

Once you have the bronze talent badge, you can build up your skills to become
a better gardener. Of course, this will help you to getting the silver talent
badge for you. This is the third rank and may take some time to get and might
involve a lot of planting. Anyway, this will allow you to plant Pole Beans 
and Peppers for §16 per seed for each of them and both can be planted on the
vegetable patch.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.04] Gold

Gold is the ultimate in gardening. You will really need to build up your 
skills to be able to get this rank. Unlike the promotion to bronze and silver,
you will only be able to plant one extra crop, the eggplant for about §20 for
a seed. However, you will be able to get a new option. You can now talk to
your plants now. What is this?

Well, talking to plants allows you to, literally, talk to the. As well as 
boosting your social level slowly, there is another effect to your plants. 
Their happiness will rise, which in essence, is their health or the colour of
their face. You might have a really sickly plant, really red in the face and
by talking to them, you will be able to make them healthier and happier. This
is best done near harvest time and you need to have some mouthwatering 
produce while the plants are not looking too good.

There is however, a better exploit to this. You can keep your plants alive 
till harvest time. They can be at any level, but while you could harvest 
them, don't. Why? Because if you talk to your plants, their happiness will
go up and so will the end produce. Therefore, you could have some bland 
looking produce on the vine but by talking to them, you can make them
mouthwatering. Excellent, but there is a downside. Talking to your plants
will take a long time and there are mods, which you can download at your own
peril, that will decrease the amount of time it will take to talk to your
plants, as well as raking leaves. Really interesting. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.05] Greenhouse

Alrighty, you want to have plants and crops to grow, but don't trust the 
weather to hold while you grow your crops. You also want to be able to grow in
winter. What should you do? Build a greenhouse. It is relatively simple to
build a greenhouse, it is just the amount of §§§ that is required to build
one that will stop people from doing so. 

To build a greenhouse, you can do so by two methods, having the vegetable 
patch already mapped out or building the greenhouse first, then inserting the
patch. The first method involves the patch already being there. You will need
to have the greenhouse walls around the patch, completely around it. This can
be found in build mode. Then, you have to decide where you want the door. The
door will require that the space behind and in front of it will be clear. A
demonstration is that you have a 5 by 5 patch. Wherever you want the door, you
will have to remove that patch. Another visual below. 
 _____      _____
|XXXXX|    |XXXXX|
|XXXXX|    |XXXXX|
|XXXXX| -> D XXXX|
|XXXXX|    |XXXXX|
|XXXXX|    |XXXXX|
 -----      -----

Suppose the D is the door and the X is the patch. You will need it like that
so there is no patch blocking the entrance. I can't believe how frustrated I
was when I couldn't figure this out. 

Anyway, you can now place your sprinklers inside as well as removing a spot
for the lady bug loft. You can also build some lights inside the greenhouse,
I am still unsure the purpose of it. Anyway, if you plan on deconstructing 
your greenhouse, remove the lights first. 

You will need a roof on the greenhouse now. Note that you will have to go up
a floor first and enable roof mode. You can select the greenhouse roof and
cover the greenhouse by placing it on the tiles. Its sort of like building 
another floor to your home. The roof is for free if you are wondering. For 
some reason, all the different roofs in the game are for free. Anyway, build
it and your plants are now protected against all the elements known to 
Simkind. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.06] Trees

If you dislike watering the plants every day, then trees are the way to go.
Fruit Trees yield produce for you to harvest and there are three types of
such trees, Lemon, Orange and Apple trees. You purchases them off the build
mode catalog but I warn you, they aren't too cheap. However, they do yield a 
fair amount of produce for you and don't require much maintenance. 

However, you will need the lady bug lofts. I find them most effective when
they are right next to one, or, one for each tree, but this will be costly
in the end. Also, you will have to tend to them. You can recognise the need
to tend to them when you see their leaves and branches all out of shape. 

Unlike the counterparts, there trees do not need to have their leaves picked
up for you. Also, when it comes the time to harvest the trees, you will be
able to use the harvest many function, however, it will only harvest trees 
that are the same as the tree that you are harvesting. 

The last thing is, in Winter, since the trees will be outside, the trees will
be dormant, ie, sleeping, and will not be able to bear any produce for you
to grow or to tend to. If you have as many crops to attend to as I do, you
will find this a nice break. In fact, if you have enough start up capital, you
can become a farmer, planting the seeds and tending to them full time, and 
selling the produce off when the time is right. You can make a lot of money
for it, but you will need people to help as you will need a lot of plants to
make some decent money. Trees are a better option, however, you will be 
running an orchard. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.07] When to Grow

As Professor Oak says, there is a time and place for everything. Indeed, there
is a time to plant your seeds that will maximse the health and the happiness
of your plants. I will list them below, as well as the amount of time it will
take for the plant to grow from the seed to the end product. 

 -------------------------------------------------------------------
|     Crop     | Time to Grow | Season to Plant | Season to Harvest |
|--------------+--------------+-----------------+-------------------|
|    Apples    |    4 days    |  All Year Round |       Fall        |
|    Lemons    |    4 days    |  All Year Round |      Summer       |
|    Orange    |    3 days    |  All Year Round |      Summer       | 
|    Tomato    | 5 days, 6 hr |     Summer      |       Fall        |
| Strawberries | 5 days, 6 hr |     Spring      |      Summer       |
|  Cucumbers   | 4 days, 9 hr |     Summer      |       Fall        |
|  Pole Bean   | 4 days, 9 hr |     Summer      |       Fall        |
|   Peppers    | 6 days, 3 hr |     Spring      |      Summer       |
|  Eggplants   | 6 days, 3 hr |     Spring      |      Summer       |
 -------------------------------------------------------------------

There is no real season to plant trees, they will bloom immediately after 
being defrosted from winter or immediately after a harvest. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.08] Harvested

Once you have harvested the food, you have the opportunity to store the 
produce that you harvested and place it into the fridge. Why would you do 
that you may ask? Well, I'll tell you way.

First of all, the produce will produce sparkly food, which is not toxic if you
are wondering. Sparkly food is basically the normal dish, however, it will
relieve more hunger when eaten. Therefore, a sparkly dish is more filling than
a non-sparkly dish.

All to make it sparkly is to have some produce stocked, via the stock option.
Any produce will be able to make it sparkly, regardless. For example, stock
some oranges and it will be able to make sparkly some lobster, regardless. It
works best with fruit because the produce comes in large numbers.

However, if you do not use the produce stocked in the fridge after a while,
it will rot and disappear. You can check the stock level of fresh produce
with the check food function on the fridge. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[9.01] PlantSim 101

Welcome to PlantSim 101. Well what it is? Well, if you haven't noticed, a
PlantSim is what happens when Sim DNA is mixed up with pesticides, creating a
human/plant organism. Their appearance will be changed forever. Their skin 
will distinctly be grass green and their eyes will also be green. I swear, if
the Tiberium universe was discovered in the Sim, it would explain, a lot. 
Anyway, their hair will be replaced by a bush of green leaves while their skin
will have the consistancy of vines. Their clothes will be entirely be made of
leaves while their shoes appear to be made of bark. Also, their needs will
completely change, but more on that later. I've heard of being green to help
the environment but this is going a bit too far. Anyway, that is the basic
defination of a PlantSim. Next, how to become one. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[9.02] Mutation

How do you turn into a PlantSim? Well, unlike Vampirism and Lycantropy, it
cannot be given to another person through an ability. You must contract it,
just like being a zombie. It is contracted with you use too much of the 
pesticide or insecticide when you are spraying the plants.

How does this occur? Well, have a garden without any lady bug lofts around to
protect the crops from the bugs. Well, you must wait for the lady bugs to 
appear first of all. After you have planted the crops, you would have to wait
for about 2 to 3 days on end for the insects to appear. If you don't want to
use crops, you can always use the trees to attract some insects for you to
spray as well. Insects will peak in Summer where plants will thrive while 
there is a moderate number of insects in Spring and Fall, and hardly, if any,
insects in Winter. 

Well, when the insects do appear, you will have the opportunity to spray them.
For you to become a PlantSim, you will need about 15 plants with insects to
spray. When there are about 15 insected infested plants, use the spray many
option to spray all of them. Once you reach about 15, give or take a few, the
side effect of the pesticide will kick in and you will become a Plant Sim. 

If you cannot do this, build a bigger garden with more plants and trees and
wait for more insects to appear and start spraying. However, the problem will
lay with whether the crops can be saved from doom or not. Anyway, the mutation
will be complete and your Sim is now a Plant Sim. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[9.03] The Effects

There are effects to becoming a PlantSim, both good and bad. First of all,
ALL, and I repeat, ALL of your needs are replaced with 3 needs, Sunlight, 
Water and Love. Lets go through all the needs first, in alphabetical order.

--==Love==--

Well, love is the new social need. Why? Well, plants need love of their owners
to survive and as an owner, you must be loved in order to survive. Talking
to other Sims, normal or not normal, will replenish your Social, a.k.a Love
bar quite easily.

--==Sunlight==--

Plants need sunlight to photosynthesis and make energy for them to survive. 
This is compared with the normal Sim's energy bar and the Servo's power bar. 
In fact, it is a mix of the two. Sunlight is gained from being outside in the
sun during the day. This will slowly recharge the Sunlight need bar, just like
Servo who is charged by Solar Energy in the Sunlight. However, at night, where
the sun runs and hides, your Sunlight bar will slowly deplete and will run
out. When it does, your Plant Sim will run outside and collapse. Unlike 
Servo who can power down, your PlantSim cannot power down and will collapse.
Therefore, PlantSims should spend the day where they belong, outside. No 
matter how many windows that you place on the house, the whole wall could be
windows, there will be no Sunlight gained there. Take note of that they gain
Sunlight standing directly below the Solar Light whilst indoors. 

There are ways to circumvent this. You can purchase the sunlight from the
Garden Catalog in the Build Mode section and that will keep your PlantSim's
sunlight bar replenished while they are standing under it. Therefore, buy
some of these and place them into the Greenhouse and you can regain your
Sunlight at night by doing some gardening. In fact, you can have the light
from the Garden Centre and place it anywhere in the home and this will allow
you to gain Sunlight while doing whatever they please. This Sunlight is handy
as you can do anything whenever they like and don't need to sleep. 

--==Water==--

The final need is Water. Plants need water as an essential to survive. Unlike
their normal Sim counterparts, they don't need food exactly, they need water.
I seriously don't know how Sims survive without water, but PlantSims need it.
Water can be obtained from many, many sources. Lets give a list of the many
methods. There are two main methods, soaking in water, or drinking it. 

* Soak in Water. This includes bathes, showers, in hot tubs and in pools.
* Standing in the rain while it is raining of course.
* Drinking watery produces, such as Lemonade, Juices, Espresso, Coffee, Cocoa,
  Drinks from the Bar and any other watery product.
* Drinking directly from the tap
* Drinking from the wishing well

PlantSims can also reproduce by themselves. Just like plants in real life,
they are asexual creatures, meaning they pollenate themselves and create new
plants, or in this case, offspring. Also, the offspring will be the result
of their parent, they too will be PlantSims. They can also try for baby with
a member of the opposite sex as well, just like formal Sims. However, they
will be a combination of the physical appearances of their parents before
one, or both, of their parents were PlantSims. PlantSim children will have
the same personality and skills of their parents as well as obtaining a Gold
Talent Badge upon adulthood. 

They can also have an interaction called "Spores of Happiness". This new
interaction allows them, while they are in a good mood, to give a boost the
the needs of Nearby Sims. This either gives an actual boost rather than 
slowing down the decay rate of the needs. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[9.04] The Pros and Cons

Of course, there are advantages and disadvantages of being a PlantSim. Lets
roll with the advantages.

* The PlantSims only have 3 different needs to refill at any given time. This
  makes it easier to control and to furfill their happiness. 

* Without an environment bar, PlantSims can make excellent cleaners. When I 
  was playing, a room has the worst environment, with a really wet floor, and
  the only method was to clean using children, who don't have an environment
  bar. Therefore, PlantSims can be cleaners as they do not have any say on 
  the matter.

* PlantSims, as their name suggests, are far better with plants and trees than
  normal Sims are, making them excellent at farming and gardening. They can be
  your first full time farm assistants!

* These Sims have no need to have food. They only have a Water bar which only
  requires water and in actuality, doesn't cost you anything whereas normal 
  Sims need food to survive. This makes it easier to maintain them.

* Without the need for food, the only fitness level for PlantSim will be 
  normal. They can get to fit quite easily and it will be hard for them to be
  fat since they don't need to eat. And if they do, they should only eat 
  salads, since they are plants after all. 

* Upon adulthood, they automatically obtain a Golden Gardening Badge. This is
  really handy as a Golden Gardening Badge can take a fairly long time to 
  obtain. This is quite useful and use it to your advantage.

* They actually enjoy the rain. Unlike the normal Sims and their hatred of
  rain, they quite like it.

However, with the good, there are the bad and as such, there are disadvantages
to becoming a PlantSim.

* These Sims have a short life span. Like plants in real life with a short 
  life span, these Sims only have 3 stages in their lives. They start at the
  Infant, or baby stage, then suddenly advance to the adult stage, bypassing
  the Toddler, Child, Teenager and Young Adult for those with University. 
  After that, it is an advance straight to Elder. This is quite a blow.

* PlantSim as such, cannot attend University because of their life span as
  Young Adult is skipped. This will disable them from obtain 4 extra career
  paths as well as 2 more want slots. 

* These Sims cannot handle the cold very well and as such, their temperature
  in the cold will drop pretty quickly. Therefore, in the late end of the 
  Fall, Winter and early Spring, their temperature will drop faster than 
  normal Sim, while makes them more susceptable to colds. 

* As they cannot take the cold, it will be hard for them to survive in  
  Winter, because, even if there is sunlight for them to feed upon, they
  will be cold and makes them easier to become sick, which will be a problem.

* Their Sunlight bar depletes relatively quickly at night and this will be
  a problem as they will collapse outside.

* The only alternative means of obtaining sunlight is from the lamp in the
  Garden Centre and this does not provide a lot of light to the Plant Sim,
  leading to a problem in itself. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[9.05] Cure

The cure is relatively simple. A person must go to a member of the Garden
Club or the Gypsy Matchmaker from Nightlife, or Deluxe if you have it, and
purchasing a potion called Plantophic-C off them and giving it to the
effected Sim. This is the only way to cure Plant Sim. It is up to you
whether you want to use it or not. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10.01] Weathernaught 57X

Along with the new wants and fears that come along with Seasons, there is a 
new Aspiration reward now. It is the Weathernaught 57X and it comes at a cost
of 7000 Aspiration Points. 

"Real, ultimate power at your fingertips! Summon storms, chill the landscape,
 or boil the neighbours -- accidentally of course -- with a mere flick of the
 switch! Ancient tribesmen had to dance, chant, and sacrifice delicious 
 animals to wield this kind of power. But you, modern Sim, may harness the 
 gift of sacrifice! With the Weathernaught 57X, your world will never be the
 same."

Well, with this machine, you can change the season that you are currently in
to any other season that you wish, and lengthen the current season that you
are in as well. You can lengthen it one day, three days or keep it forever. 
Also, the weather in the name allows you to change the weather that you are
currently in, from rainy, sunny to snow and hail. There are 5 charges to this
machine and as mentioned before, costs only 7000 Aspiration Points. Having a
aspiration mood lower than gold will result in a meteor shower, and that would
be quite nasty for one's health. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[11.01] What is it?

What is the Garden Club? Well, it is a group of people who love going around
showing off their wonderful gardens. When you start Seasons, or move into a 
new lot, a representive of the Garden Club will come of straight away and
talk to you. There are several rewards from the Garden Club, including
discounted seeds and other goodies, as well as a wonderful new object. To
join the garden club, you will need a large garden, about 10 blocks or more
of vegetable patches. Use the telephone and request for Garden Club membership
to call up the representive. If you meet the requirements, you will be
assessed. 

When they start up first, they will advise you to do some landscaping, ie,
make your plot neater. This advise should be heeded. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[11.02] Joining

Well, you can call for membership whenever you want and they can come along
for an inspection. After you have join, you can request an inspection every
few days or so since they state that your garden will need some time to 
recoup itself. 

Anyway, when they come, they will talk to your Sim and start an inspection of
your yard. They will come along with about 3 people and start an through 
search through your yard, examining nearly every tree and plant and looking
out for undesirables. 

To ensure that most of the examiners are happy, look at your backyard. If it
is the fall season or winter, make sure that all the leaves from the trees
are raked up and burnt, composted or thrown out. Any puddles of urine or 
water should be mopped up, any pet material should be taken care of and any
left over food should be cleaned up. Basically, just make sure that the 
environment bar is as high as possible given the conditions. 

Then, look at your trees and plants. Make sure that they all don't have bugs
in them, so either use some pesticide or place some lady bug lofts next to
them. Make sure they are watered so they don't have a thirst for water. Try
to ensure that the happiness is as high as possible, therefore, if you have
the gold gardening talent badge, talk to them to about the thriving level
at least. And finally, make sure they are all tended and there are no weeds
that grow around the plant. 

If you have done all that, you should be able to pass. If not, place some
garden decorations to heighten the score of environment just to give that
little edge. They like a well kept garden, a large nice garden as well as 
wonderful landscaping. If you have done that and they accept you, they will
give you a Simoleon bonus to you as well as membership. Now, onto the 
rewards of the membership. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[11.03] Point Scoring

Well, there are ways to score points and to lose points from the Garden 
Club. These points, though you don't see it, will determine your end reward. 
Below, I will list down what exactly will give you points and what will lose
you points. 

For Points

* Watered Plants
* Plants are Bug Free
* Plants are Tended
* Yard is Clean
* Good Landscaping in your Garden
* High environment score
* Plants are happy

Losing Points

* Leaves on the Ground
* Weeds growing
* Plants require Water
* Plants are unhappy
* Backyard is littered with trash
* Low Environment Score
* Landscaping is poor

If my theory is correct, the amount of points scored is based on the Simoleon
reward that is given to you in the end. Therefore, a bonus of 1,500 will be a 
score of 1,500 points. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[11.04] Rewards

There are many benefits of joining the Garden Club. The first and foremost
bonus is that the seeds that you plant will be cheaper, 25% cheaper in fact.
This makes Tomatoes costing only §6 per seed, §9 for Strawberries and 
Cucumbers, §12 for Pole Beans and Peppers and §15 for Eggplants. This will be
a cost saving over time. 

Also, fertilizer will only cost you about §10 to spread it onto your plants.
This will give a boost to the starting happiness of the plants, which is 
always good. 

The final reward, for a score of over 700, will be a Wishing Well. You can
get as many as you want, but you will need a score over 700 to do so. More
on the Wishing Well later as there will be a section on it. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[11.05] The Wishing Well

Well, the main reason for the Garden Club is the Wishing Well. For scoring 
over 700, you will get the Wishing Well in the inventory of the Sim who
requested inspection. The Garden Club is the only way to obtain the Wishing
Well, there is no other way, except for cheating of course. 

Well, first of all, there are two main functions of the Wishing Well. The
first and the most minor of the two, is to drink water out of the well. This
is only necessary for the PlantSims, who need water. This will fill about 20%
of the Water Need Bar, so it is handy for a quick fix.

The second and most important function of the Well is to wish of course. 
Unlike the ones in town squares that do absolutely nothing, the Wishing Well
here will grant your requests. As a note, there are two results for whatever
you wish for. The bad result occurs when you wish more than once in a period
of 24 hours. Thats right, if you wish more than once a day, you have a chance
of failure. The more you do so, the higher the chance against your Sims. This
goes for anyone in the household. 

There are three things you can wish for, money, friends and romance. Lets go
through each of them. 

--==Money==--

For those of you out there that love money, this wish, after the little blue
glow has occured in the well, will drop a sack of §1,000 and land right in
front of your Sim. Who said money didn't fall from the sky? Well, you can't
really do anything with it except redeem it for money. However, the flip
side, or the event of what happens if you wish more than once is that a bag
of §50 will drop from the sky, land directly on the Sim's head, and has a 
chance of killing them. Ouch. 

--==Friends==--

This is extremely handy if you have a high friend turnover rate. Anyway, this
will materialize three Sims out of no where next to your Sim, having a high
Daily and Lifetime relationship with your Sim. Extremely handy if you need
that promotion. Again, there is a bad side to this, where if you wish it 
wrong, it will materialize 3 Sims who will immediately pick fights with your
Sim. Again, Ouch. As a note, all three Sims are around the same age as your
Sim. 

--==Romance==--

This will be useful if you want someone to love. This will drop a Sim of the
right age and the perferred gender of your Sim, male or female, right next
to your Sim and will immediately give your Sim their first kiss, straight
away becoming a Love since they have a high daily and relationship score. 
The flip side, and dare I say, more amusing side of love, is that Mrs
Crumplebottom will drop from the sky and beat you up with her purse. It is
quite a sight to behold. As the Garden Club says, they are not responsible
for what you wish for.

Just for those who are curious, the Wishing Well, or the "Toss 'n Wish
Drinking Well by Gaelic Gardens" can sell for §2,500. Quite a good price
but after 3 days of wishing for money, it isn't worth it. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[12.01] Composting

Why do we need to compost. Well, if you want good plants, you should compost
and fertilise the garden as it will give a boost continiously to the plant
while it is growing. This is extremely useful for obtain some mouthwatering
goods. Anyway, we need to compost. First of all, you will need the compost
bin from the Garden Centre to get started. Each Compost Bin can contain 
exactly 30 pieces of compost and they will take some time to decompose. 

All you need to do to compost is to get some materials that you can compost,
which will be displayed later in the next section, and wait. Then, you can
fertilise by clicking on the tile that you wish to compost and you can do it
once or many. Its a dirty job, but will save you money in the long run as
fertiliser will cost money. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[12.02] Things to Shove In

What can we shove into the Compost Bin? Well there are many items that one
can shove in. Although dirty, it is good none the less.

* Leaves from the trees. Once they are raked up, you can click on them to 
  compost. Since there is a large amount of leaves dropped in Autumn, there is
  a lot of free compost lying around.

* The Newspaper. Yep, the daily newspaper is available for you to shove into 
  the compost bin.

* Unwanted Plants. If you don't want any plants, just compost them and they
  will decompose for you for future use. 

* Trash. Any daily trash that you can obtain from the trash compactor or the
  bin can be composed for you. Although the maid does not do it for you, you
  can manually do it yourself. Now, anything can be composted.

* Kitty Litter. For those of you with the Pets Expansion pack, you can get the
  Kitty Litter and cancel the action, resulting in some trash on the floor 
  which you can compose. Or you could just have it in the compactor and 
  compost that as well. Doesn't matter, either way will work.

Note that the value of some compost is worth more than others. The biggest
variable is trash. The more trash that you have in the compactor, the more 
compost that it will add to the compost bin. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[13.01] The Weather

Another main addition for Season is the weather. Yep, there is now rain and
hail. Anyway, lets go into the many cycles of weather.

--==Clear==--

This basically means that life will continue as it is. Imagine Sims 2 without
the Season pack where it was sunny all the time. That is it. Nothing special
except that the PlantSims will need the sunlight in order to recharge their
little meters. 

--==Rainy==--

The next type of weather is rainy weather. This is nice for your plants which
give them some water, saving you from watering it, but it isn't too good if
they are exposed for it too long. It also will create some puddles for you
on the ground that you will have to mop up later on, or wait for the sunny
weather to dry it up. 

--==Snowy==--

This will create a snowstorm for you, instead of raining, it will be snowing
and this will help as some Sims have a want for this. It could even snow in
the middle of Summer with the necessary tweaking. Anyway, this will allow you
to make snowmen and snow angels while rapidly dropping the temperature. You
will be forced to go outside in some warm clothes. 

--==Hail==--

Hail is basically frozen ice. This isn't nice as it will hit your Sims if you
aren't careful. It will also attack and hurt your plants as well, that isn't
that nice. Also, some Sims will have a fear of hail so think of it as the 
evil version of snow. 

--==Thunderstorms==--

This isn't exactly what you want to be outside for. Thunder will accompany
rain and will attack things it deems necessary. It will target trees and will,
if you are unlucky, zap and fry your Sim. The only way to prevent this is to
use a lightning rod that will almost definitely take the fall for you instead
of your Sim. Think of it as being electrocuted, except more painful. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[13.02] Temperature

You may have noticed that your Sim now has a temperature gauge now. There are
several levels of it. There are three on blue, one on green and three on red. 
This will tell you how hot or cold your Sim it. Lets get into it.

Blue means your Sim is too cold. This is influenced by the weather and will
normally appear in late fall, throughout winter and early spring when the 
weather is still cold. There are two levels on blue. The first level is when
you have a little of blue above the minimum. This means you better keep an
eye on yourself because any more will freeze you. If you have temperature
where there is blue in a circle, then you must quickly get warm soon. This is
best done drinking some hot chocolate that is made with the machine or one
of the juices, Tomato Juice. You must make sure you are careful as you might
need some outerwear to ensure that you have adequate protection against the
cold. If you are in the lowest level for a period of time, you're Sim will
develop a cold that will develop into something deadly if left untreated. Read
my base game guide if you want more info that what that little snippet 
provides you.

Green means your Sim is ok. You can get colder or warmer. This is the optimal
temperature that your Sim should be at. 

Red means your Sim is far too warm for their liking. This is done when they
are outside in the sun for too long as well as working out on the exercise
machines. Any job that involves the working out for periods of time will heat
them up. If it gets to the point where the temperature gauge is flashing
red, you should cool them down. This is done by drinking lemonade. The level
where it is just below boiling point means that you must be careful and seek
to cool down. Too long in the sun will give your Sim heat stroke and this
will force them out of the sun for the time being. Reminder, the worst 
offender is the hot tub, that will make you warm extremely quickly. There
are 7 levels in total, I'll go into it below.

Boiling  - Highest Red, EXTREME DANGER

Hot      - Red, Danger Sign

Warm     - Just Red, Starting to Heat Up

Okay     - Green, Okay

Cool     - Blue, Starting to Cool Down

Cold     - Blue, Danger Sign

Freezing - Lowest Blue, EXTREME DANGER

Also, if the children are too cold or hot for that matter, the social worker
will come along and take the children, so be careful.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[13.03] Weather Forecasts

What to know the weather before it falls? Well, you can use the weather 
forecast to help you plan what you want to do on the day. There are two 
methods, discounting the computer, on getting a weather forecast, the 
newspaper and the television.

The newspaper forecast is given with you click on the newspaper and you can
read the forecast there when you see the option. The second method involves
you using the television and going to the weather channel which will also
tell you what weather it will be for today. They are normally right unless
you decide to pull out that little Aspiration Reward that you can buy.

These forecast will present itself in a little dialogue box and tell you
the forecast for the day. You should use it as a planner but sometimes, it
can be wrong. 

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[14.01] Selling Food

Selling Food is one of the new functions that is available for you if you
have the Open for Business expansion pack. You can harvest the produce that
you grow and sell it. You can also sell some fish that you catch from the
pond in the back of your house. 

Growing the produce might take a long time, however, there is a benefit to
it. When you harvest the produce, you don't just get one eggplant, or one
pole bean, you get many of them. This is important as if you plant 10 
strawberry seeds, you will end up with over 100 strawberries that you can
sell. Selling lemons off a tree is no different, you can harvest about 20
citrus fruits or apples off one tree during the harvest.

Fish, unlike produce, does not require you to wait for a while. All you
need to do is to cast a lure out and wait for the fish to bite. The fish
automatically go into your inventory.

To sell your produce, it is relatively simple. You will need the display
case for food from Open for Business. This is the little refrigeration 
display case. Remember, there are two levels for this.

Depending on what you are trying to sell, it will take up varying amounts
of space. Because there are two levels, the maximum amount will be double
of what is listed. 6 items of produce can be stored on one level. 2 Small
fish can be stored on a level while you can only store a single Jumbo
fish on the level.

You can also sell food made from the produce and fish. Because all meals
made from fresh produce and fish will sparkle will shimmery stars, these
will relieve the hunger bar faster and therefore, you should set to sell
for a higher amount. Likewise, you should set mountwatering produce to 
sell at a higher price than the regular bland produce.

Seasons really does bring the life back to running a grocery store, and 
makes it much for challenging since good produce will sell quick, and you
will need to master how many plants you should cultivate and fish to
catch. Therefore, you will need staff to come in. You will need some to
tend to your greenhouse, and others to fish for you. Otherwise, you will
never be able to meet demand, unless you have 7 servos working for you.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[15.01] Leftovers

Leftovers is a long awaited implement for those stingy Sims who cannot bear
the thought of wasting food. So, what is it?

The Leftover system is that you can place excess food that you cannot finish
into the fridge and save it for later. How does it work? Well, all you have
to do is to click on the plate with food on it, that is currently not in the
process of being eaten, and selecting the option to place the leftovers into
the fridge.

When you want to remove the leftovers from the fridge, click on the fridge
the leftovers were stored in and select the option to get leftovers from it.
Select the dish that you want, and eat, without the need for a microwave.

Any dish can be placed into the fridge as leftover, excluding empty dishes.
Dishes that you have eaten but not finished can be placed. Pizza and Chinese
takeaway can be placed into the fridge. Group dishes that haven't been 
finished can be shoved as leftovers as well as the dishes that have been
served from the Group dishes but not eaten.

Why is the Leftover system better? There are two main reasons. It prevents 
perfectly good food from becoming a rancid fly haunt. This basically increases
the life of food indefinitely. Also, when you are nearly the end of the
hunger bar, this can provide a quick relief to the hunger bar until you have
the opportunity to refill the hunger bar.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
[16.01] Gifts

You can now give gifts to people you love. Basically, this is choosing an
item from your inventory and giving it to the other Sims. Everyone loves a 
little gift, even if you don't want it. But in all honesty, this is rather
pointless, since there is no advantage to giving gifts over not giving gifts.
You can't even have an effective Christmas party.
