This game is different from the previous Sim console games as the pla
As with all Sims games Sims must get jobs to earn money and live a successful life. There are many different choices of jobs each with a group of separate jobs to move through as you progress one promotion at a time. Sims earn promotions by checking the requirements of the next promotion available in their job in the career section of their personal info. They will need to raise certain skills which will not only get your Sim to start climbing up the career ladder but will also make your Sims faster and better at everything they do in their day-to-day life. They will also need to build relationships with their neighbors as interpersonal skills. Sims will start out their job with a low pay a simple outfit and a cheap cab as transportation but as relationships and skills build they will improve their levels and eventually everything will be first class.
When a Sim reaches a certain level of friendship with another Sim as in all games it unlocks a series of romantic actions which are not limited by gender. Sims can get married cheat on other Sims (this happens when one lover catches the other lover attempting a romantic action on another Sim; they will usually sigh argue with your Sim move out and your relationship will be dragged down to either 0 or -0) attack each other break up date (this is just shown by getting lots of calls and kissing whenever they meet up) move in with other Sims ask other Sims to move in with them and once they are married they will be able to go to the bathroom shower and take baths with no problem even when the other Sim is in the room and they will be able to sleep in the same bed without one of the Sims getting up and lowering the relationship. They can also lower their relationship with another Sim to the enemy status in which instead of romantic mean actions appear including things like push shove poke and attack. Sims cannot however WooHoo or have a baby. The level classifications of Sim relationships from lowest to highest are arch nemesis enemy acquaintance friend and best friend. For pets the highest level with Sims is master.
Sims also cannot age and all Sims in the game are at a young adult stage meaning there isn't school or college. Elders are made simply by changing hair color. Pets also cannot get jobs or enter competitions. There are no wolves or skunks and Sims cannot turn into werewolves. In this game Sims do not die or turn into ghosts though they will collapse and fall asleep if their energy motive gets too low and they will faint if their hunger motive gets too low. Just before they are about to faint of tiredness they will slouch and only be able to walk slowly. Pets faint too for the same reasons. If a pet or a Sim faints other Sims can revive them by pulling out a bucket of water and throwing it over them or they can call a Paramedic using the phone. If there are awake pets nearby when a Sim or another pet they know faints they will quite often run out of the lot and return with a Paramedic. It is known that dogs are slightly more likely to do this than cats. Even if there is no phone or any other pets or Sims the Paramedics will come eventually. Also in this game things can still catch on fire and eventually burn into a pile of ashes (this can be caused by leaving the fireplace on for a long time leaving food in the stove without taking it out using the rocket bench on carpet or wood flooring or of course the Fire Code) plumbing can break causing water to go everywhere (the repair woman can be called to fix anything broken) burglars can still rob you (though when they try to do this you can call the police or if you have a burglar alarm installed the police will come arrest the criminal and reimburse you for what you lost) you can still hire maids and gardeners (though you can't interact with them other than to fire or dismiss them) Simoleans are still used you can still use Classic Control Mode with the pointer though Direct Control Mode (where you use the Nunchuk to directly control your Sim's movements) is more popular on this version Sims can still play chess against chickens that they buy in the Town Square (they will get a golden egg if they win but it is known to be very hard to win against a chicken) and Sims can still get abducted by aliens if they spend a long time looking through a telescope. If this happens Sims will not get pregnant but they will go to the nearest toilet sink or trash can and puke. Sims can also call a therapist to reset their wants if the need be.
The main pets available in this game are of course dogs and cats which are highly customizable but Sims can also buy PigglePuffs (a hamster in a cage) which they can feed play with and clean but PigglePuffs may escape from their cage. You may also own a goldfish that you can get in the Town Square which you have to feed and clean along with the various aquariums.
In this version Sims will get fined if they have a party with music past 11:00 pm (though they will have been warned first at around 10:00) if they call the Fire Department or the Police on a false alarm or (on rare occasions) if they put too much of their stuff from the Object Catalog in the Town Square. Strangely if a Sim calls the Paramedic on a false alarm they will not get fined but will just receive a stern message. In any case even when the Sim just calls the maid the gardener or the repair woman and doesn't have enough money for it or they couldn't afford to pay a fine the Sim charging them will pull out a strange laser and suck up and take away an object from your house. Another strange thing is that pulling lots of pranks on the phone doesn't seem to get you in trouble.
Sims can also be just as creative with different foods in this game as with any other Sims game. They can choose from various different ingredients from lots of different categories (the foods available depend on the quality of the fridge) and they can even harvest their own foods like fruits and vegetables from home-grown plants and bushes and fish from aquariums. Sims can make freestyle food or follow recipes each with it's own effect on your Sim not just in bladder hunger and energy but emotionally too. Sims can then create various different meals with their stoves energy drinks with their blender and even home-made pet food with their food processor. Sims may also make group meals if they have enough of everything get a snack in the form of a bag of chips or simply get a basic pre-made generic meal. Sims can also purchase a grill which will give them a nice barbecue at 25 Simoleans apiece. If they are lucky whilst searching the couch Sims may also find an old piece of bread. It may be disgusting but Sims will eat it and it will cure the hunger motive after a while. Sims may also find money in the couch occasionally.
One feature of this game is the mysterious Zombie Monkey Paw which can be found when searching a couch. When found it fills up one of the Sim that found it's motives completely fulfills a want makes them act differently and sometimes it will even fill up every motive to the top. As would be expected it is usually found in the more expensive couches while you're more likely to find old bread in the cheaper ones.
The only keys to expanding families are pet adoption via the pet seller in the Town Square (in which you can also donate your pets) even though you won't be able to customize the pets you get from here raising your relationship with another Sim and asking them to move in with you (which they will do anyway if you ask them to marry you but either way they will want to take their whole family and if you do not have enough room left for all of them the Sim will most likely decline) and the real estate office where you can add new Sims via editing the family before moving to a new house. Also on rare occasions completely stray pets or pets that have run away from their homes may visit in which case you will be able to check the microchip and if the pet doesn't have one you can take in the stray. If you start off with a big family and would like to decrease the number of occupants in your house there are a few ways. If you are married to a Sim and you lower your relationship enough you will eventually be able to break up with them in which case they will automatically leave the house with any pets that may have had a higher relationship with them than they did with you and some of the family's money or you can just ask a Sim to move out no matter what the relationship and the same things will happen. When a Sim moves out they will become available for move-in with a small amount of money (usually not enough to buy a house on their own so it may be necessary for a pla
A pet's offspring usually looks like the parent of the same gender ie: The mother dog is black and white the father is brown and rust the puppy is a female so it will be black and white with a few rust-colored flecks. Occasionally when mixing breeds of dog the puppy will be the same breed as one of the parents with no hint of the other breed ie: When interbreeding a black Poodle with a russet-colored Collie the offspring will be a dark brown Poodle because the poodle has such a bizarre body and fur coat and there is no way to mix it with the collie. It is also common to breed to dogs that may even be almost exactly the same and yet still get a completely unique-looking offspring. Some splashes of color including green pink blue and others can also be found on puppies or kittens.
