0.8 - 07/03/04- Still very much incomplete, still need to do Multiplayer,
Unlockable Items, Create-A-Sim. The current file size is around 212kb.

Well welcome to my The Sims guide for the PS2. I finally took the time to write
this guide up after weeks of lying forgotten in my drawer. Hopefully it is
useful to you as it is a pain in the butt to type up. I really enjoy this game
and I hope this is reflected in the quality of the guide. It is impossible to
write an exactly step-by-step for this game, though I have done my best. One
last thing, yet again my keyboard is playing up, so the missing keys to look
for are r, z and sometimes the spacebar. Hope this FAQ is useful to you.

If you have any questions or queries please consult the Contact Information
section first. Thank you.

                                  ===========
                                   GAME BARS
                                  ===========

During the game there are 4 different status bars which help you get through
the game. These are-

                                 =============
                                  MOTIVES BAR
                                 =============

This bar tells you what your Sim needs these things and how to do them are-


--------
 Hunger
--------

Well I think this is pretty obvious, your Sims hunger bar is low, so feed
them. To do this order a pizza, cook a meal, have a barbeque. Note that
the more expensive the cooker and fridge you have, the better feed your
Sim will be. If you have the cheapest cooker and fridge you'll need 2-3
meals a day. With the most expensive, you will only need 1 and maybe a
snack.


---------
 Hygiene
---------

Your hygiene bar is low, this means you stink you bum! Solved by taking
a bath, having a shower and cleaning your teeth. This will work in the
same principal as above. If you get a cheap bath, you will be cleaned
less effectively. My recommendation would be to buy the Sonic shower as
soon as possible.

--------
 Energy
--------

Energy bar too low? Then go to bed, as this is the most effective method.
Buy the modern mission bed rather than the more expensive love bed, as
it has a higher energy rating. If you put on the aroma machine at the same
time, that should help towards your energy. But if going to bed is not for
you what are the alternatives? Well taking a nap on the couch isn't a bad
idea, or even better on the recliner. Still not good enough? Use the
espresso machine to help your energy stats, though this will make you want
the toilet. One more tip- go and poke your finger in the bug zapper. This
will give you a jolt of energy, but lower your comfort bar. If your energy
bar is entirely depleted, then you will fall asleep on the spot.


--------
 Social
--------

Ever felt like your all alone? Need help? Phone a friend and talk on the
phone (not very effective), or invite them over to chill out (do this).
When they arrive, talk to them, play pool, basketball, dance to music or
sit and have a chat in the hot tub. All of these will put up your social
stats nicely. Sometimes, people will just knock at your door randomly. Take
this opportunity to socialise if you have the time. Note that if you call
your friends just to talk only do it once for each, as they might get a bit
narked off, this does not count for your mother. One more thing parties are
always good occasions to socialise.


---------
 Comfort
---------

Are you comfort bars taking a battering? Rest on  chairs, the couch,
recliner, hot tub, bed, showers, baths, tree swing, beverage cooler- is this
enough for you? Sleeping in the Vibromatic Heart Bed is probably the best way,
but sitting an chilling in the hot tub is moderately effective.


---------
 Bladder
---------

When this bar gets too low, get to a toilet quick, otherwise there might be
a cleaning job on. A job option may be an automatic flushing toilet, suitable
for you lazy bums out there. Also, this toilet will boost comfort.


-----
 Fun
-----

Guitar, TV, VR goggles, pin ball, basketball, pool, stereo for starters. No?
Then how about PC, swimming, jogging, chess? Still no? Painting, sculpting,
telescopes any good? There are plenty of ways to make you Sim happy. I find
that the VR goggles, pool with friends and the plasma TV are good methods.
But there are two others that are even better.

First of all start a game of pool with friends. Then stick the stereo on at
the same time (make sure the stereo is nearby), this should put your happiness
up a good way.

The second is to put on the stereo and to dance with friends- a guaranteed
winner.


------
 Room
------

This is not controlled by anything physical your Sim does. This stat is
improved by your Sims surroundings. Buy and place room-boosting items around
your home. A few of the more effective ones are- faux bearskin rug, white
rhino re-enactment, china vase and the grandfather clock. Also flowers, plants
and lighting will help. The aromaster machine one the third setting will
greatly help.


                                 =============
                                  CAREERS BAR
                                 =============

Sims need enhanced skills in order to fulfil goals as lofty as career promotions
or as simple  as not setting the kitchen on fire while attempting to cook
dinner. The career panel, provides details on your Sim's current employment
status, salary and basic skills. Your Sim can learn new skills in the following
fields-

---------
 Cooking
---------

You will need to learn this before you try and cook otherwise you will probably
die prematurely and take your house down with it. Study a book from the
bookcase to increase your cooking skill points.


------------
 Mechanical
------------

Mechanical will probably needed in every career so get used to it. With this
you an also repair broken items around your home, rather than phoning a
handyman. To learn mechanical study at the bookcase or use the workbench.


----------
 Creative
----------

If you want a career in music or entertainment, then you'd better get used to
this. Paint on the easel, play the piano or guitar or use the carving block
to achieve skill points. This one has the added bonus of providing fun too.


------
 Body
------

This one is hard work on your energy meter, though will also provide a little
fun. Use the benchpress machine, treadmill o why not take a relaxing swim?


-------
 Logic
-------

Want to become the next Einstein? This is the area you want. Does not really
specialise in any career, though is useful. To get the points in this one,
use the chess table or the telescope, but beware. Use the telescope too often
and you might get a visit from an alien....whhooooo...


----------
 Charisma
----------

Good of outgoing Sims, if you want to make it big you need to be a good public
speaker. Improve this stat by speaking in the mirror.


                              ==================
                               RELATIONSHIP BAR
                              ==================

Your Sims friends are listed on this bar. Below the face of your friend, is a
number that indicated how pleased you are with them. Red bad. Green good.
These fiends are important to Sims as they can help you gain promotions. Also
get friendly enough with someone and why not get married?


                               =================
                                PERSONALITY BAR
                               =================

See the below Create-A-Sim section for information.

===============================================================================

The first thing I would like to say is that you should expect big updates on
this section.

Now, you will have to create a Sim to play Get A Life Mode and Play The Sims
mode.

The first thing you will need to enter is your Sims family name. Cue the joke
names mentioning no names- Butz, Dover, Normous. Then your Sims first name
(Seymour, Ben and Dixy).

You will then move onto the personal section, in which you will choose your
Sims personal qualities. You are given just 25 points to award yourself in
the way you feel appropriate. You have 5 bars to fill, a maximum of 10 per
bar;

Messy/Neat
Shy/Outgoing
Lazy/Active
Serious/Playful
Mean/Nice

Alternatively, if you select a star sign, then those qualities will be chosen
for you. Here are those star signs and their personal qualities;

If you are basing your Sim on yourself, then I'd advise you not to
choose your own star sign, as it probably won't help you in the game, with the
skills your Sim has. This is the way I usually use my points:

Messy 4/10 Neat
Shy 2/10 Outgoing
Lazy 3/10 Active
Serious 8/10 Playful
Mean 8/10 Nice

The reasoning behind this is that you don't really need to be that tidy after
the second house- the maid will do it. If you have an outgoing Sim, then your
Social bar will drop faster if you don't see people. So have a shy Sim and
you won't have to keep calling your friends all the time. If you have an active
Sim, then you will need more sleep, if you have a lazy one, you won't. If you
have a playful Sim, then your bar will quicker, an also, as playing is an easy
task, you will probably be doing it a lot. Finally, if you have a nice Sim,
then you will get on with people better and not fall out with them. This is
just my personal Sim, different people will want different things.

Also in this section you will need to choose your gender and age (if
applicable).

In the next section you will need to choose your body so to speak. First of all
select your skin colour. Then your body composition (skinny, muscley, fat).


===============================================================================
<6>                + + + + + BASIC HINTS AND TIPS + + + + +              [BHTP]
===============================================================================

* Hire a maid on every level after you have unlocked her.

* Hire a handyman to fix broken items when you have unlocked him.

* If you stare into the telescope for about 3 nights running, you will be
abducted by aliens, and you will return hours later with completely different
personal qualities.

* When your Sim is getting changed, hold L1 to pause, but your Sim will still
change.

* When you need friends, they count as family friends, i.e. your wife's
friends will count as yours- use this your advantage.

* Always answer the phone, as sometime you are given money.

* Don't have a phone in your bedroom, otherwise you will be woken up every time
it rings.

* If your Sim dies you will get game over, as well as a visit from the Grim
Reaper

<7>          + + + + + THE WALKTHROUGH - GET A LIFE MODE + + + + +       [WKTU]
===============================================================================

This is get a life mode, a new feature and a change from the PC version. You
must complete different tasks and upgrade your living conditions, so... off you
go.


===============================================================================
<7A>             + + + + + HOUSE 1 - MONEY FROM MOM + + + + +            [NMFM]
===============================================================================

This house starts as you are having a day dream. You are dreaming that you have
a hot supermodel girlfriend in a huge mansion and a hut tub. Just as you are
about to get to 'business', you awake from your day dream to find your self
unemployed living in you mothers no bedroomed house. So your life as a Sim
begins here.


 ========
  Goals
 ========

1) Borrow $800 from your mother.

2) Make dinner without starting a fire.

3) Fix the TV.

4) Maintain the house value.

5) Get a job.


 =================
  Doing The Goals
 =================


                   ---------------------------------------
                    GOAL 1 - BORROW $800 FROM YOUR MOTHER
                   ---------------------------------------

There are a few ways to complete this task, but I will tell you about the one
which I think works best. The best way (I feel) is to fix the TV, then ask
your mom for $400. Then cook a meal (for you or her), then ask her for another
$400. For more information on those tasks see below. Make sure that your mom
is happy when you ask her, with at least 1 segment of green on the mood bar-
the more the better. If you still need money, sell off the stuff in the house,
but be warned, this will take value from the house, and your mom will ask you
for the difference when you leave. Not an ideal start to life on you own. For
this you will have received The Museum (2 player game).

                 GOAL 2 - MAKE DINNER WITHOUT STARTING A FIRE
                ----------------------------------------------

don't just go over to the fridge and click 'Serve Dinner', as this will
probably result in your premature death and a swift visit to A+E. Go to the
bookcase- DUMBO! and click 'Study Cooking' and study up on cookery until
you have earned at least one Cooking Skill Point. When you feel that you have
ample experience, go over to the fridge and cook a meal. If you don't feel very
confident, just cook a small meal. If you do have confidence then click Serve'
'Dinner or what ever meal it is. When you have completed this goal, you will
unlock the Whifferpuff Master Gold.


                            ---------------------
                             GOAL 3 - FIX THE TV
                            ---------------------

Same goes here- if you don't want permanent brain damage from electrocution. Go
to the bookcase and click 'Study Mechanical'. When you have gained at least
one Mechanical Skill Point, go to the TV and press 'Repair'. Whilst you are
doing this, don't mind if your Sim receives a few minor shocks, it's normal,
honest...

When you have done this goal you will unlock the Charismaster Vanity Table.


                        -------------------------------
                         GOAL 4 - MAINTAIN HOUSE VALUE
                        -------------------------------

The house is worth $23660 when you start. If it drops at all, as I said before,
she'll ask you for the difference.


                             --------------------
                              GOAL 5 - GET A JOB
                             --------------------

This is the last task which you need to complete. The paper boy will bring a
paper to your mail box at around 9 o'clock. Go and get the paper to find a
job. The paper will provide you with 3 job options per day. That means if you
want to get the 24 hour bonus (see below) you must take one of these jobs. For
information on career paths see the CAREER PATHS section. For finishing this
task you will unlock the PerspirAction Executive Treadmill.

===============================================================================

Once you have done all the goals in house 1, your,  mom will admit that you
are finally ready to fly the nest. She says that she's organised a house for
you to rent. This one. The only trouble is, is that it is a real dump. Sort it.

 =======
  Goals
 =======

1)Clean up the house.

2)Fix the broken appliances.

3)Upgrade your abode.

4)Get promoted to career level 2 and career level 3.


 =================
  Doing The Goals
 =================


                        -----------------------------
                         GOAL 1 - CLEAN UP THE HOUSE
                        -----------------------------

Do exactly what it says- clean up the house. And you may o may not have noticed
that it's a right state. Do the cleaning after work- make this priority before
other non-essential activities. This may take you a few days and you'll have to
sacrifice some of your happiness and stats, but don't worry- these can be
sorted out later. When the house is entirely mess-free, you will now be able to
hire a daily maid, (I would strongly recommend this).


                       ------------------------------------
                        GOAL 2 - FIX THE BROKEN APPLIANCES
                       ------------------------------------

When you move in you will notice that there are a few items that are f****d to
use the technical term. These items are the computer, the espresso machine,
the TV and the toilet. First of all, I'd recommend that you use the toilet, as
it won't be too long before you need wee-wee. Do this as soon as you enter the
house. Next you might want your Sim to have some fun, so fix the TV and
computer, though these don't need to be done until after the major-scale spring
cleaning. The espresso is a non-essential task and can be done when ever you
find the time. When you have fixed all of the appliances, you will now be able
to call a handyman to fix your broken items.


                         ----------------------------
                          GOAL 3 - UPGADE YOUR ABODE
                         ----------------------------

The starting value of the house when you arrive is $34561 you must increase
this to $35711. What could be simpler? Invest in some worth while items such
as a better table, couch, TV etc. Need extra cash? Sell the next-to-useless
Vanity Mirror and use it to buy some worth-while items. Oh, and apparently
fixing the broken items increases house value, happy spending!


                    --------------------------------------------
                     GOAL 4 - GET PROMOTED TO CAREER LEVELS 2+3
                    --------------------------------------------

One major tip that will work throughout the game- go to work in a good mood,
(not as difficult as a real day I'm sure). This will help you gain promotions.
But the same goes the other way, if you go to work in a bad mood too often,
you run the risk of demotion. Now for your first promotion, you will need no
skill points or family friends- no matter what job you have. So toddle off in a
happy mood and you should earn promotion, if not keep at it. A good tip would
be to put plants and shrubs around the front path, so your Sims happiness won't
dip at the last minute.

The next promotion is a little harder, though it's not all that hard. Look at
you career bar to see what you need to achieve to get promotion. The required
skill points are highlighted in yellow. Your required number of friends
(unlikely that you need any) are denoted next to the blue smiley face, i.e. 0/1
means that you need 1 friend. If you don't know how to gain the needed skill
points see the game basics section.


 ==============
 Unlocked Items
 ==============

Maid- Clean up the house.

Repairman- Fix the broken appliances.

Electric Insect Control System- Upgrade your abode.

Burp 'N' Slurp Beverage Cooler- Promotion to career level 2.

Teppan Yaki Table- Promotion to career level 3.

The Frat House- Being invited to move in by Dudley or Mimi.


 <<<BONUS>>>

If you complete the house in four days or less you will receive *unveils

<<<THE HIGHBRAU COAT OF ARMS!!!>>>


 ============
 OTHER TIPS
 ============

* Make friends with anyone who calls at the house- you'll need them in the
next level.

* Dudley/Mimi will visit and complain daily until all tasks are completed
ungrateful b*****d.

* Hire a maid via the phone under 'Services' as soon as you have unlocked her.

* Hire a handyman if anything gets broken (when you've unlocked him).

When you have done all of the goals in house 2, Dudley decides that you are
not cool enough to move in with him. But as soon as you arrive at his house,
Bingo will tell you that you made a mistake, and he's probably right.

Not one of my favourite levels, as it may prove a sticking point in you house
progression.


 =======
  GOALS

1) Get promoted to level 4+5.

2) Upgrade your abode.

3) Throw a raging party.

4) Move out with one of Dudley's/Mimi's friends at the party.

                    ------------------------------------
                     GOAL 1 - GET PROMOTED TO LEVEL 4+5
                    ------------------------------------

You'll more than likely need friends to earn promotions now. Use you phone to
contact your friends you met in the last house, or if your still on good terms
with your mom, she'll now be counted as a family friend. Also you know by now,
the yellow highlighted skill points age required to earn promotion. Don't
forget to keep that happiness up!

Do the same for you next promotion and you'll be laughing. If you need help on
how to earn the skill points see the Game Basic section.

For completing these goals you will unlock the Strip Poker Table and the
Libidinex Spa System (love hut tub).


                         ----------------------------
                          GOAL 2 - UPGRADE YOU ABODE
                         ----------------------------

For this you need to take the house value to $54700. This money should be spent
on worthwhile party items. Some suggestions on that front are- an outdoor
toilet to keep the guests happy, a good quality stereo on the patio (as well as
inside), a liquor bar and a beverage cooler. Don't forget the must have at all
parties and that is the Aromaster Whifferpuff Gold and then set it to the third
setting. Oh and the VR goggles won't go amiss. Some other room boosting items
such as paintings and rugs would be recommended.

For upgrading your abode you will unlock the Sweetsway Tree Swing


                       -------------------------------
                        GOAL 3 - THROW A RAGING PARTY
                       -------------------------------

Once you have done goals 1 and 2 you are well on your way. The next thing to
do is to speak to a potential party guest. Get Dudley/Mimi to call one of their
friends up so you can get friendly with them, ready for the next goal. I would
suggest that you friendship with them is at least 80. Now you are ready to
party! Take the day off work to cook up a couple of good meals
(Dudley/Mimi too), also ordering a pizza might be a good idea. Also make sure
you have made up the dinks on the liquor bar and the beverage cooler. Also make
sure the house is tidy. Now when this is done change into your formal dress and
get Dudley/Mimi to throw the party on the phone. Click your TV, stereo's, bug
zapper on. Don't forget the Whifferpuff on the third setting.

Greet the guests as they arrive, and they will enter the house and grab some
food. Once everyone has eaten, hop in the hot-tub and others should follow you.
If not press 'call over' and then they should come. Wait a few minutes and
around now a sign should come up saying Congratulations! This party rocks!

If this is the case, look at the next goal. If not just keep it going until
people start to leave or the police break it up- then you know your party is
a downer. If you have failed, repeat the above steps.

For completing this goal, you will unlock the two player game The Motel.


            -----------------------------------------------------
             GOAL 4 - MOVE OUT WITH ONE OF DUDLEYS/MIMIS FRIENDS
            -----------------------------------------------------

Now, go over to the friend you made previously and just socialise for a
minute or so, then press 'Ask to be roommate'. If they say yes then great, if
they say they don't know you well enough talk to them more then ask them again.
If they say your party sucks, then you'll have to throw another better party.

When you have done this goal, you will move on to the next house.


 ==============
 UNLOCKED ITEMS
 ==============

Strip Poker Table- Promotion to career level 4.

Libidinex Spa System- Promotion to career level 5.

Sweetsway Tree Swing- Upgrade your abode.

<<<BONUS>>>

 ============
 OTHER TIPS
 ============

* The Park is unlocked on the last house anyway, so if you don't catch Bobo
don't worry. He'll appear on all levels from now on too.

* You may like the idea of a strip poker table at the party.

* Don't let your roommate die or get the sack if you don't want a big GAME OVER
sign.

* Hire a mid at you earliest convenience.

                  --------------------------------------------
                   GOAL 1 - GET PROMOTED TO CAREER LEVELS 6+7
                  --------------------------------------------

You know how things work by now, check your careers bar and get the required
number of friends and skill points. This might take a while longer on this
as gaining skill points will probably take hours and gaining sufficient amounts
of friends (if you aren't that popular) can't be time consuming and very
taxing.

For your troubles you will unlock the Artists Block and the Sonic Shower.


                        -----------------------------
                         GOAL 2 - UPGRADE YOUR ABODE
                        -----------------------------

Party time anyone? The Whifferpuff Aromaster Gold is a must-have. The house is
already kitted out with some amazing gear, so you won't need that many items.
A couple of things to consider would be the Sweetsway Tree Swing and a hottub.
Also maybe an outdoor toilet and a large flower bed (hire a gardener to keep it
trim). This will keep your room stats up if your guests have a bit of an urge
to go outside. Oh one more thing to consider maybe the liquor bar. Note that
if you try and throw the party before you have completed this goal, the
landlord will come and break the party up.

For upgrading you abode you will receive the Vibromatic Heart Bed, which may
come in handy in the next house.


                   --------------------------------------
                     GOAL 3 - THROW ANOTHER RAGING PARTY
                   --------------------------------------

Before you begin this task, phone up another potential party guest (of the
opposite sex) with you room mate. You need fall in love with this Sim.
Socialise with them until they become your friend. When you reach about a rating
of around 80, you can begin to flirt with them and such. Buy them gifts if the
option is available. After a while a heart should appear above their head
signalling they have fallen in love with you. Get your friendship rating up to
a full 100, kiss them if you want, then ask them to leave.

Do the same as the previous 'rager'. Take the day off work (your room mate is
unemployed anyway) and make sure the house is tidy. Cook up some good food and
order a pizza. Make sure the liquor beverage cooler is well stocked and turn
the TV, Jukebox and any other appliance (i.e. VR Goggles). Don't forget to
switch
on the Whifferpuff Aromaster Gold and turn it to the third setting. Throw the
party via the phone with your room mate, then change into your formal dress.
When the guests arrive greet them and they will go to the food. After a bit
of munching a sign should come up saying that you have thrown another raging
party. If this does not come up then some hot tubbage may be in order.

For finishing this task you will unlock Club Abhi (2 player game).


                  -------------------------------------------
                   GOAL 4 - TRY AND SCORE WITH A PARTY GUEST
                  -------------------------------------------

As soon as this notice comes up, talk with your lover you met previously and
then maybe kiss them and give them a gift. Then the option should come up 'try
and score. Ask them and if you are in love with them and have a good
friendship rating (95+) they should accept. If this option does not appear,
the keep at it. If they accept, then after a quick marriage ceremony you will
have completed the house.


 ==============
 UNLOCKED ITEMS
 ==============

Sonic Shower- Get promoted to career level 6.

Artists Block- Get promoted to career level 7.

Vibromatic Heart Bed- Upgrade your abode.

Club Abhi (2 player game)- Throw a raging party.

The Park (2 player game)- Greet and feed Bobo the bum.


<<<BONUS>>>

Complete the house in 8 days or less to unlock...

<<<THE WURL 'N' HURL JUKEBOX>>>


 ============
 OTHER TIPS
 ============

* Greet and feed Bobo the bum.

* Hire a maid at the first opportunity.

* If you want to complete the next levels more quickly, maybe you should do
some of you skill points for later promotions on this level. This is because
it will take a full day to gain a promotion point on the coming levels. Note
that if you do this, you will have to forgo the Jukebox.

* If you have moved in with a male room mate or a female one you are not
sexually attracted to (yeah right), then you may wish to have another bedroom
as this is only a one bedroomed house. I would suggest that you put the bedroom
where I have marked out with stars (***).

                     ------------------------------------
                      GOAL 1 - GET PROMOTED TO LEVEL 8+9
                     ------------------------------------

If you sorted out your skill points and friends on the last house (as I
recommended), you shouldn't have too much trouble here, just keep your
happiness up. If you didn't sort them out, then you could be here a long time.

For getting your hard earned promotions you will have unlocked The Maids House
2 player game and also two swimming pools. The I Cladius Roman Pool and the
Elle Belle pool.


                           -----------------------------
                            GOAL 2 - UPGRADE YOUR ABODE
                           -----------------------------

Your house value is $69400 to start with. You must increase it to $73400. For
once, there is no party to plan for :( But you now need to plan for the future,
meaning the two kids which you need (need?). It may be a good idea to buy a
nice shiny computer for the kids to study on. Also a bathroom for the kids, as
it might be annoying to have them visit yours constantly. And some beds and
toy boxes and dolls house for the kids. Sapping little brats...


                           ------------------------
                            GOAL 3 - HAVE 2 BABIES
                           ------------------------

There are two ways to go about this, the fun way and the stupid way. The first
way, you will need either the Vibromatic Heart Bed or the Libidinex Spa System.
Jump in either with your Sim and your partner and select 'play'. I'm not too
sure what happens (hmmm, I wonder...) but suddenly a baby will appear. Place
baby (crib) in you bedroom so you can be woken up by it's constant wailing and
give the little bundle of joy (yeah what ever...) what ever it needs.

When it does cry, just select feed and then sing to shut the little bugger...
I mean angel up. I find that if you try and play with the baby, it only seems
to aggravate it.

The second non-fun way is to not bother with the sex and wait for 24 hours. A
baby will be born automatically anyway, even if you and your partner haven't
been up to much 'playing'. Note that you can only have one baby in the house
at a time. If you baby cries too much then a social worker will take your baby
away as you have not been treating it properly.


            -----------------------------------------------------
             GOAL 4 - TAKE CARE OF THE BABIES UNTIL THEY GROW UP
            -----------------------------------------------------

As I mentioned before, when they cry, just feed then sing. Keep repeating this
process for about 5-7 days and eventually they will grow up into a child of
around 10. Do this for both babies to complete the task.

For completing the obviously taxing goals of bringing up two children you will
unlock the Domestic Beach Simulator and the Happy Thunder Neoscillating
Sprinkler
for the first and second respectively.


                     ----------------------------------
                      GOAL 5 - KEEP THE KIDS IN SCHOOL
                     ----------------------------------

All children must go to school and your offspring are no exception. Put their
grades up with the computer, book case or telescope. Their grades start at a B
so try and work that up to an A+. Send them to school in a good mood and they
will continue to attain good grades. Send them to school in a bad mood and
their grades or don't send them at all and their grades may well slip. If their
grades get so bad that they get an F, then they will be taken away to military
school.


 ==============
 UNLOCKED ITEMS
 ==============

The Maids House(2 player game)- Promotion to career level 8.

2 Swimming Pools- Promotion to career level 9.

Domestic Beach Simulator- Raising first child from a baby.

Happy Thunder Neoscillating Sprinkler- Raising second child from a baby.


<<<BONUS>>>

For your quick completion this time (8 days or less) you will unlock....

<<<FAUX BEARSKIN RUG>>>


 ============
  OTHER TIPS
 ============

* Hire a maid at your first opportunity.

* If you don't like the way your children have turned out, then buy a vanity
mirror and you can change their appearance.

* You may want to put in an extra bathroom in this house for the children. I
would suggest that you put it in the place where I have marked with  stars(***)
Just bung a toilet, sink and bath (kids can't use sonic shower) in there and
you'll be sorted.

                       GOAL 2 - KIDS INTO PREP SCHOOL
                      --------------------------------

Send your kids to school happy on any given day with any A grade (A-, A, A+)
and when the return they will have gotten into prep school providing you have
the money to send them. It will cost $3000 ($1500 each), so make sure you have
that saved on the first day so you can get rid of them early. If you don't have
the money sell of some of the existing things in the house, as you don't have
to maintain a house value here.


                     -----------------------------------
                      GOAL 3 - SAVE $20,000 FOR A YAGHT
                     -----------------------------------

As soon as you save up $20,000, you will receive a phone call saying that you
have bought a yacht. This is not a good thing early on in the level, as you
will need money for refurbishment. So if you feel that you need the money right
now, then don't answer the phone.


                  ----------------------------------------
                   GOAL 5 - THROW A HUGE RETIREMENT PARTY
                  ----------------------------------------

Take the same measures as all of the previous parties- hot tub, out door
toilet, pizzas, home cooked meal, formal dress. Don't forget ton turn on
your appliances- TV, Bug Zapper, Stereo, VR goggles, Fire. And don't forget
THE DADDY- Whifferpuff Aromaster Gold on third setting. There seems to be a
lot of don't forgets here, so I'll add another one- take advantage of the pool
if you need to. Though, the party may well be wrapped up by then, if you have
a desirable room nudge, nudge...wink, wink. You will already have the expensive
rug and the Bearskin rug to play with. The Jukebox (if you have it) may help,
some expensive paintings and the like will help you out on that front. Note
that the happiness levels need to be higher at this party than any other,
so bear that in mind.


 =================
  Unlocked Items
 =================

The Park (2 player game)- Get promoted to career level 10.

Meet Major Domo- Get both kids into prep school.

* Don't forget your maid.

* If one of your children dies or get sent to military school, you'll have to
have another baby.

 Goal
======

He might fix up your house but he lives like a pig. Tidy up the side of his
duplex he assigned you to, and he'll give you a heart1 He gives extra hearts
if he knows his kid is happy too!


================
 Doing The Goal
================

First of all begin tidying the pizza slices and other rubbish from the centre of
the room. Do this with both you and the handyman's kid. When you have done this,
tidy up the other things around the kitchen, table and hot tub. Now keep tidying
up with your Sim and send the handyman's child next door (to your opponent) and
tell it to break things. Do the hot tub, TV, Dishwasher and toilet. This will
cause more mess and trouble for the opposition. Don't forget that your opponent
will also probably be breaking your things, so keep repairing them. Every so
often, the handyman will come to check on your progress (around every hour).
When he comes make sure the house is tidy (or at least tidier than next door)
and make sure that the kid is happy. He will give you a rewards deserving of
your efforts. If you have a tidier house then next door, you will be given a
heart. If the kid is happy, then he will give you another. Keep going at this
until you have beaten your opponent.


============
 Other Tips
============

*The handyman will visit around every hour so make sure everything is in order.

* Don't forget to keep checking your status bar, as you may well need rest or
fun after a while.

* The most hearts that you can receive at a time is 2.

* Watch out for the messy neighbours that will come and dump rubbish into your
house! Cheeky b******s.

===============================================================================

======
 Goal
======

Down on your luck? Stuff yourself with food at The Park and you won't go to
bed hungry! Beg, steal or just cook your own...anything goes at this Beggars
Banquet!

================
 Doing The Goal
================

There are 3 ways in which to gain food. The first is to steal it. Select a
person to be your victim and select 'steal food'. This will give you 4% of
the food that you need. This is a risky tactic, as your victim may turn around
and take 8% of your needed food. Though it may not be worth doing on the other
Sims, try it on your opponent to cripple their chances.

The next is to cook you own food. To do this go over to the BBQ. You will cook
a plate full of burgers- brilliant. But the greedy Sims who are in the Park
will come over and eat it all. You will only get a single burger and this will
give you little hunger satisfaction.

The final- and best way in my opinion would be to beg and beg like you've never
begged before. Don't just walk up to someone and ask them for food- they will
slap you. Don't believe me? Then try it. First of all choose a suitable Sim and
go over and become friendly with them. This means talk to them and charm them
until their friend rating with you is 100 (or around there). Now beg for
food from them. If you have a high friend rating, they will give you around
36% of your hunger satisfaction.

Once they have given you food, they will no longer be your friend, so talk to
them and get their friend rating to 100 again and repeat. This is by far the
most effective way of gaining food.


============
 Other Tips
============

* Your food percentage meter will slowly be decreasing as you play, so be as
quick as you can.

* If you need comfort, fun, the toilet, there are suitable items to suit your
needs around the Park.

* At the end of the level, watch and laugh as the grim reaper kills the loser
whilst doing a celebratory dance with the winner.

                          'Get Your Con On'

Use your relationship building talents to squeeze money out of unsuspecting
investors. The better they think they know you, the more money they will give
you! The player that swindles the most money before closing time wins!


================
 Doing The Goal
================

You have 10 minutes to con your way into more money than your opponent.

Go over to an investor who is the opposite sex to your Sim and begin talking
to them. When your relationship with them is around 70, flirt and talk with
them. When you fall in love and the option Kiss comes up, then use it. You
should be in love with the Sim and have a 100 relationship with them.

Now ask them for money, and they should give you around $110, then they will
disappear! Don't worry though they will appear soon if you need them again.

When you have done this, go over to another member of the opposite sex and
do the same. After a few swindles, you should be sitting on a tidy sum.


============
 Other Tips
============

* Use the available facilities if you need them.

===============================================================================

======
 Goal
======

Who has the most friends? Be the first to make 3 friends at the party! Spread
rumours about the other players Sim to ruin their friendships while you improve
your own. The first player with 3 friends gets to party in the hot-tub.


================
 Doing The Goal
================

Go over to the nearest person and get socialising with them. Get your
relationship with them to 90+ to keep you safe from those nasty rumours. Also
when you make a friend, you can spread a rumour without getting slapped. This
will lower the relationship status with that of your opponent with that
person by 20 points.

Once you have done this with one person, move onto the next, preferably one
of your opponents friends if you have any. Talk to them, get them to 90+,
spread the rumour, then go onto the third friend.

Please don't forget that your opponent will probably be doing all this back,
so be aware!


============
 Other Tips
============

* Make use of the available facilities if you need them.

* Spread the rumours to your opponents friends if you can.

* You won't be able to spread the rumour if the person you are talking to is
not a friend. They won't believe you.

But play with love carefully- guests won't fall in love with both players at
one time.


================
 Doing The Goal
================

Go over to the nearest member of the opposite sex and start talking to them.
Move things on a bit with back-rubs, gifts and flirting. When they have fallen
in love with you, seal the deal with a kiss then move onto your next victim.

Do the same with the next one, making sure that they aren't already in love
with your opponent. If your sure they haven't, follow the afore mentioned
guidelines. Repeat until the 10 minutes are up.


============
 Other Tips
============

* Use the available facilities if you need to.

* Try and disrupt conversations your opponent is having with their likely
candidates and try to get them to fall in love with you first.

* Make sure the Sim you are trying to fall in love with isn't already in love
with your opponent.

======
 Goal
======

Get ready to party hearty with Dudley and Mimi's friends! The player with more
guests left at their party after 10 minutes wins! And remember... you can
tell YOUR guests to crash and ruin the OTHER players party.


================
 Doing The Goal
================

As soon as you start, go over and switch on the TV with one of your
controllable Sims and with the other, go and cook a meal for everyone. Next
go into the hot tub with one of you and everyone should follow. If they don't
then call them over. With your other Sim just play pinball.

After a while, they will start to get out of the hot tub, probably for some
food. Luckily you have already made a meal to dine on. Grab a meal with two of
them. With one of your Sims ask a party guest (they need to be a friend) to
go and crash next doors party. They will go and beak some of next doors
appliances then come back. This will not make them happy and they will not
longer be your friend, so as soon as they return talk to them and make them
feel welcome.

At the end of the level the monkey butler (Major Domo) will fall in love
with your equipped Sim and give you a passionate kiss- ?!?What is this s***?!?
Also one of your party guests will go next door and start slapping your losing
opponent obsessively.


============
 Other Tips
============

* You can ask as many people to crash next doors party as you want, though
they must be a friend before they do.

* If a player loses all their guests then they will lose.

|  |  |Have you looked in the mirror lately? Times have changed, and |  |  |
|  |  |you should too. Corporate consultants recommended taking time |  |  |
|  |  |out each day to practice grooming, so you'll be confident     |  |  |
|  |  |at career boosting meetings. But if you're really serious     |  |  |
|  |  |about change, go for a total makeover...and be the Sim you    |  |  |
|  |  |always wanted to be.                                          |  |  |

|  |  |has 5 seats, so you may well need to order a pizza anyway.    |  |  |

|  |  |An extraordinarily well-preserved coat of arms this particular|  |  |
|  |  |sword and escutcheon design dates back to the 13th century.   |  |  |
|  |  |While the Highbrau family emblems of eagle and worm are       |  |  |
|  |  |clearly distinguished, heraldry experts argue as to the       |  |  |
|  |  |symbolism of the paired colours.  Typically interpreted as    |  |  |
|  |  |"Honour with courage",others believe them to signify,"Honour..|  |  |
|  |  |.with a tremendous amount of bloodshed."                      |  |  |

|  |  |IN MY OPINION: I don't use this piece that often, but a good  |  |  |
|  |  |piece to increase room stats cheaply.                         |  |  |

|  |  |Have you ever thought you might be an artist?Stop thinking and|  |  |

|  |  |artist ever developed their creative skills without hour upon |  |  |
|  |  |hour of practice.  And, while you might struggle at first,    |  |  |
|  |  |remember that all of your hard work "pays off" eventually. All|  |  |

|  | |lot of testing with a pair of 300pound dummies to strengthen the| |  |

|  |  |Child psychologists all agree that children who play in       |  |  |
|  |  |unstructured, goal-free,and creative environments lead happier|  |  |
|  |  |and more fulfilling lives.  Sandboxes are the epitome of      |  |  |
|  |  |open-ended play, but in a safe, controlled space parents will |  |  |
|  |  |appreciate. The Domestic Beach Simulator lets kids create     |  |  |
|  |  |classics such as pyramids,castles,and even more intricate sand|  |  |
|  |  |figures with a little help from mom and dad. Fun for the whole|  |  |
|  |  |family!                                                       |  |  |

compiled by JPaterson. Formally this could be viewed as part of my guide, but
I have revised my guide without it. It seems to me unnecessary as it is

<13>            + + + + + POSSIBLE HOUSE DESIGNS + + + + +               [PHOD]
===============================================================================

This section is mainly for the Play The Sims mode of the game. It is designed
to give you ideas for your possible house design, depending on what you want
from your house.


-----------------
 Secluded Garden
-----------------

Every felt like you need to get away from prying eyes? If you leave a square
in the centre of your house, you can. Just simply turn it into a garden and
you'll be laughing. A pretty cool design if I say so myself.

 Easy Access Secluded Garden
-----------------------------

Very much the same, but with better access and less house space. You may want
to turn your garden into a patio with a bar and hot tub and such.

 Fun and Games
---------------

If you need a little fun or your Sim is very active or playful, why not add
a games room to your establishment? Though if you put most of your activities
in a single room, your room stats will drop, so bear this in mind.

      |___________|_______________________________|



---------------
 The Good Life
---------------

For those of you who feel a little more cultured, why not have your own
art gallery? Note that this may also lower your room stats in other rooms.

<14>                   + + + + + CHEATS + + + + +                        [CHTS]
===============================================================================

And for the dirty cheaters of the bunch...

-----------------
 Unlimited money
-----------------

Go to build mode and make the longest straightest wall you can. Now decorate
both sides with the most expensive wallpaper. Sell one side of the wall, and
when you release the square button, keep hammering it. Your money should go
up by the value of the length of wallpaper.


Hold R1, R2, L1, L2 to open a cheat menu at the opening screen, then input
these cheats;

-------
 Midas
-------

This unlocks all objects, skins, multiplayer games. Now go to Get A Life mode
and return to the main menu when you enter the house with either Roxy or Randy.


---------
 Freeall
---------

Sets all item costs to $0. Note that this may cause problem with game saves.


---------
 Party M
---------

Unlocks party motel multiplayer mode.


------
 Sims
------

Unlocks the Play The Sims mode. Though you can unlock this by simply starting
and saving a game on Get A Life mode.


-----------
 Fish Eyes
-----------

This will change your camera to first person mode. To get to it, keep pressing
circle (to change wall view) until you come to first person mode.

===============================================================================

And for the dirty cheaters of the bunch...

1) When you use the Sonic Shower, the game seems to freeze for a second and the
walls reappear. I've never had a real problem with this.

2) Sometimes when you tell your Sim to do an activity (i.e. basketball) they
start to do it but then stop and do nothing. You cannot make them move. The
best way to remedy this problem is to wait until they fall asleep, rather than
resetting.

3) This is a helpful glitch. Go to build mode and make the longest straightest
wall you can. Now decorate both sides with the most expensive wallpaper. Sell
one side of the wall, and when you release the square button, keep hammering
it. Your money should go up by the value of the lenght of wallpaper.


===============================================================================
<16>           + + + + + FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS + + + + +            [FRAQ]
===============================================================================

The first 10 questions and answers are from the June 2003 edition of
Playstation 2 Official Tips Mag UK. The rest...erm aren't.


Q) I like watching my Sims walk around and all the activites they get up to,
but I don't feel part of the action. Can I see what they're seeing?

A) Yes you can and all it takes is a little tippery. Hold down R1, R2, L1,
L2 together at the title screen to open up a Cheats Menu. Type in the code:
FISH EYES. When you start the game, press the O button to cycle though the
wall views. Keep pressing and you'll be in First-Peron Mode. Also, if you
hold any of the directional pad buttons in this view, the Sim you're viewing
from will move their head to that angle and carry on walking, so you'll get
to see a headless Sim.


Q) Uhm, I know I shouldn't be asking this, but is there any way to kill your
Sim? Or a bunch of them? I'm asking for reasons of curiosity you understand...

A) As a rule, apart from Tom, we're not fans of mass murder in this office. But
as servants to our readers we set out to work this one out. The best way we can
see is to throw a party. Make sure the room you throw the party in is covered
with carpets, has a few fires and some rugs near the fire. Turn the fires on
and remove the doors of the room in build mode. The people will be stuck there
and all hell will break loose.


Q) I'm struggling to get someone to marry me. What am I doing wrong?

A) We hope you're lavishing them with the attention they deserve. To get to the
sort of level where the other person will commit to you, you have to keep at it.
Talk to them, feed them, let them know they are special. It takes a lot of
patience and understanding to get that special someone.


Q) During the section where you have to raise the kids, can you make them fall
in love with each other?

A) What? No! Go back to your farm you sicko!


Q) I've got a cheat code, but I don't know what it does. I was told inputting
SIMS VILLE would do something, but there's not effect. Help!

A) You see, the code does have an effect, but it's the same one when you
simply put SIMS in the Cheat Menu. The Cheat Menu is simply recognising the
first word, and the second one has no bearing. You could write SIMS
CRAIGWEARSABRA and it would have the same effect . You see?


Q) My Sims as lazy as hell. Her slow ass nature is getting on my nerves. What's
the best way to perk her up a bit?

A) Buy a bug zapper. That's not a joke either. Walk her up to the zapper and
make her touch it a few times. You'll notice the electricity boosts her energy,
but her comfort level drops right down, so give her something nice to sit on
after you do it.


Q) I decided to improve my Sims mood by using the basketball court. I clicked
on it and he just stood there, staring at it without moving. He stood there
for hours and his mood dropped. The only time he left was when he fell asleep.
What happened?

A) You have discovered a glitch. I'm afraid there's nothing that can be done
about it, apart from resetting the console or letting his mood drop.


Q) What's with all the freaky phone messages I keep hearing. Someone phoned me
up and said ' You have been chosen they will come soon'. Another time I was
called about drugs (or something) drop off. What's going on here?

A) What you are experiencing is crank calls. They're just a little extra fun
added to the game and really mean nothing.


Q) What's the best way to get your Sim in a good mood. I need to raise the
level of my guy so he can get promotion.

A) There are a few things you ca do. Stick cartoons on the telly and watch it
with a friend. It'll combine the social stats with the fun stats and make your
Sim well happy. You can alter the mood with aromatherapy. Buy the Whifferpuffer
and set it to the third setting. Games on the computer also work well for
raising mood. But the best way we've found is to dance with someone. Invite a
friend or Mom and put the radio on. Start boogying and invite them to as well.
You'll be happy as Larry in no time.


Q) I just got a message to pay my bills. What bills? I haven't received any!

A) Ah. You've done what a lot of people do and forget to check your mailbox.
It's an easy mistake to make. Simply visit it and you'll find all you need to
clear your debts (well, except cash that is).
