The Sims 3 Community Introduction

The Sims 3 contains many extras outside of the main game as part of a package designed to entice gamers away from piracy. Once you register your copy of The Sims 3, as well as getting a new town, Riverview, you will also receive £6/$10 worth of Sims Points to spend in EA's store. The only way to officially download new items for the game is in this store, while you can use the Exchange to get alternative versions of the standard in-game items that other gamers have created using Create-A-Style.

Also on The Sims 3 website are facilities for blogging, video and screenshot upload, and generally a Sims 3 version of Facebook!

Finally, and unofficially, you can use a 'hack' to allow player-created items into the game. This means completely unique items in all shapes and sizes can be made and put into the game.

All these options will be explored in this guide.

The Sims 3 website has four crucial areas. These are My Page, Exchange, Store, and Movies & More. Each of these can provide new content, information and extra longevity to The Sims 3, so getting to know them and how to best make use of them is key. Exchange and Store involve getting new or altered items into your game, while My Page and Movies & More are related to the community side of things. We'll look at each one and how to best make use of it from hereon in.
