*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Now, Let the Guide Begin~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[1.01] Introduction

Welcome to my 51st guide, and it has been exactly 50 guides since my first
guide was released, which was for the predecessor of this game, the Sims 2. 
Despite my feverish attempts to keep away, there was public support for me 
to do this, and as such, here I am. 

Anyway, this guide is for the Sims 3, the sequel/prequel to the Sims 2, sequel
in terms of gameplay, prequel in terms of storyline. This is just the base 
game, and as such, when expansions do come into play, which is a definite,
it will only cover the base game, whether I do the expansions is completely
up to my discretion. 

Without further ado, let us start. Again. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[1.02] Version History

Version 0.0 [24/6/09]
I'm back! Not that I was gone. Anyway, did a start, finished 12 whole traits.
This might take a while. 

Version 0.1 [25/6/09]
Doing more of the traits, glad to see people tuning in. 16 more traits done,
this is taking a bit longer than I expected, but I am going relatively in
depth on this, I do find it is quite important. 

Version 0.2 [26/6/09]
Pushing through, about 20 more traits to go, which means I should finish
tomorrow. I plan to do the moodlets next. 

Version 0.3 [27/6/09]
All the traits done. Even the secret ones. This was a grind session. 

Version 0.4 [28/6/09]
All the Moodlets are complete. I'd never thought I'd get it done. 

Version 0.5 [29/6/09]
Start on the total wishes list, finish up to F, still G-Z to go. 

Version 0.6 [30/6/09]
Completed all the Wishes, but internet is down, so no upload. Which is rather
annoying. 

Version 0.7 [2/7/09]
Well, taking a day off, given that I felt a bit burnt out, and the internet
was still down, but now it is up, for now. Better upload this quickly. Anyway,
sections 5.01-5 is done. 

Version 0.8 [5/7/09]
All the skills are finished, now to decide what to do next. Given the choice,
I think I'll start on those indepth skills that I promised. 

Version 0.9 [8/7/09]
Completed 5 Career paths. 

Version 1.0 [9/7/09]
4 more career paths complete. 2 more main paths and the side jobs and that 
will finish careers.

Version 1.1 [10/7/09]
All the careers and part time careers are done. Finally. 

Version 1.2 [14/7/09]
Completed the Cooking and Fishing indepth guides. 

Version 1.3 [15/7/09]
Completed Gardening and Guitar skill guides.

Version 1.4 [17/7/09]
Completed all the Indepth guides.

Version 1.5 [28/9/09]
Long time update, added in chapter 9 and 10, seeing that I've got less 
projects to worry about. 

Version 1.6 [19/10/09]
Finished §11 and §12. According to my to do list, there isn't a lot left to
do for this guide. 

Version 1.7 [22/10/09]
Completed up to §14, and starting on §15, Opportunities. Should be done soon.

Version 1.8 [29/10/09]
2 more sets of opportunities before the skill opportunities are complete. Then
the career ones, and all done. 

Version 1.9 [30/10/09]
Completed all the skill opportunities, and 3/10 of the career opportunities.

Version 2.0 [31/10/09]
Guide is finally complete. I have no more open projects. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[1.03] Differences

What is so different about this game over the Sims 2? Well, there are several
things that you will use in this game and once you use it, you won't have a 
second doubt that this upgrade was a wonderful choice.

 * Seemless neighbourhood. Basically, although you can no longer play and 
   modify community lots, they are now just interaction buildings, your 
   neighbourhood is seemless, when time moves with your family, it also does
   for other families, so keep that in mind. 

 * No loading time, and this is quite significant, in previous games, waiting
   5 minutes to load up a large community park was a standard. I could make a 
   cup of tea in that time.

 * Personal Cars for your Sims use, Inventory System, Trait System, and so
   much more.

There is a lot to discover in this game, and part of my job, as the
perfectionist that I am, is to cover ALL of it. This will be a long project
and a long guide, but make no doubt, this will be done. 

And for those who say that it is stripped back to the basics, you need to 
note that a lot of the concepts from the Sims 2 and all the expansion packs
have been added. For example, fishing and gardening from Seasons is back,
Young Adults from University has been added, Cars from Nightlife is added,
business ownership from Open for Business has been added, so quite a fair 
bit has been added. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[2.01] Creating a Sim

Well, your manual does a good job to this, so there isn't much of a need for 
me to go into how you create your Sim. You can create a real ugly, feral,
zombie looking thing, or you can create the right hand of God, or somewhere
in between, and as always, yourself. 

As always, there is your head, clothing, all that little kafuffle that I 
really can't be bothered going over, you can play around with the tools
themselves, because it isn't necessary for me to do and talk abou this.

Anyway, the thing that I will talk about are the traits and the favourites 
that you can have your Sims adopt. Basically, traits are a set of 5 qualities,
less if you are not playing with adults, and these will effect the personality
of your Sim throughout the game, but as always, these are not permanent. 
They will get their own section later, because there is a lot to go on with
traits, and a little in depth discussion on them is due. 

Finally, there are the favourites. Here, you can set your favourite foods,
colours and music for your Sim, and basically, when they use objects or eat
foods or dance to music that is their favourite, they will get an extra mood
boost from it. 

The list of favourite foods that are shipped with the base game include:

 * Waffles
 * French Toast
 * Pancakes
 * Fruit Parfait
 * Autumn Salad
 * Cheesesteak
 * Dim Sum
 * Fish and Chips
 * Grilled Cheese
 * Grilled Salmon
 * Hamburger
 * Hot Dog
 * Lobster Thermidor
 * Mac and Cheese
 * Peanut Butter and Jelly
 * Goopy Carbonara
 * Ratatouille 
 * Spaghetti
 * Tri-Tip Steak
 * Stu Surprise
 * Sushi
 * Cobbler
 * Cookies
 * Key Lime Pie


The list of all possible favourite colours are:

 * Aqua
 * Blue
 * Turquoise
 * Spice Brown
 * Green
 * Irish Green
 * Lime
 * Grey
 * Orange
 * Purple
 * Spiceberry
 * Violet
 * Lilac
 * Pink
 * Hot Pink
 * Red
 * White
 * Sea Foam
 * Yellow
 * Black


Finally, the list of all music. Note that when I say custom, it is basically
the music channel that you can set yourself. You can import music into the
relevant folder. For those wonder, it is in My Documents -> Electronic Arts ->
The Sims 3 -> Custom Music

Anyway, the list of favourite music possible:

 * Electronic
 * Indie
 * Pop
 * Latin
 * Classical
 * Kids
 * Custom Music

And that should be all to it. Note that you don't have a lot of clothes,
HOWEVER, you can move the slider along and you can modify the clothes and 
their colours. Basically, the clothes that you are given are templates, you 
can colour them to whatever you want, but no doubt that the modding community,
which will definitely thrive in this game, will provide you with a truckload 
as well. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[2.02] Aging

Shock horror, there is no aging cheat in this game, there is an option to 
turn off aging altogether in the options section of the game. Look for it
yourself or use the manual. However, if you are going to use aging, this is
going to be very different.

Why? Because you can also now adjust the aging of other characters, that you
don't control, basically, the townies or the NPCs of the game. Also, you can
adjust the rate in which Sims age. They can age rather rapidly, and have quite
short livespans, or they can have exceptionally long lifespans, you can set 
it to epic and have them live for at least 960 days, provided they don't
befall a certain accident. 

Basically, aging is a key factor in this game, and one that you can control.
The manual should provide more information on this, and I assume that you all
have manuals, one thing that I have learnt over the last 4 and a half years
in writing is that manuals go together with guides, guides are not to overtake
manuals. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[2.03] Traits

This is going to be a massive section. There are over sixty different traits 
that you can choose from in this game, and currently, in the base game, you
can only have 5, though that may change in future expansion packs. There are
some secret traits, though I will only confirm the Pyromaniac perk. Anyway,
lets get started. 

***************
*Absent-Minded*
***************

Absent Minded Sims are just that, they will always seem to be lost in their
thoughts, pausing to think about anything and everything. And they sometimes
forget what they were meant to do, which can be quite a problem.

--==Benefits==--

There are really no real benefits of being absent minded, though if you want
a Sim who is very forgetful, then this would be ideal. 

--==Disadvantages==--

Where do I start? Basically, they will, all of a sudden, stop what they are
doing and start to think. Although this may be fun to watch, this will cost
you valuable time which your Sims may not have. 

--==Unique Properties==--

Sometimes, when they are watching television and they are finished watching
it, being absent minded that they are, they will turn off the TV, which may
be handy, however, not handy to those who are still watching.

--==Usefulness==--

0/5

There is really no practical and useful way to utilise this trait, and as 
such, they do not have any use.


***********
*Ambitious*
***********

Those who are ambitious have high hopes, they aim for everything and they
will stop at nothing to achieve it. They will aim as high as they can, and
want to shoot up the career ladder, but they will get rather depressed when
they don't get that promotion that they are looking for.

--==Benefits==--

There are two real benefits of bing ambitious, they will have a higher rate
of job performance gained at work, which means that they will get promoted or
get that raise faster, and they will get increased lifetime points when they
have one of their wishes fulfilled. 

--==Disadvantages==--

One problem is that if they do not get promoted, and at level 10, get enough
raises at regular intervals, they will get an Anxious moodlet, which will have
a detrimental effect on their mood, which isn't exactly one of the best 
things that you want to have. 

--==Unique Properties==--

In order to keep these little princesses happy, you need to enough that you
build up their performance at work fast, or else they get depressed and then
you'll be in a real fix. 

--==Usefulness==--

2.5/5

Sure, it is quite useful, since increased job performance will make sure that 
you get a little more money, however, if they don't get their promotions quick
enough, they throw temper tantrums, and that can be a problem to keep in
check.


********
*Angler*
********

Basically, a fisherman's friend, the angler trait means that your Sims will be
able to play with fish more. They catch better fish than other Sims and they
will do it faster as well, as well as enjoying fishing more than other Sims. 

--==Benefits==--

Anglers will be able to catch more fish, faster than all the other Sims can,
and the added bonus is that they will be able to boost their fishing skill at 
a much faster rather than Sims without this trait.

--==Disadvantages==--

Besides smelling like fish all the time, they really don't have any 
disadvantages in terms of personality.

--==Unique Properties==--

All anglers will start off with a fishing book in their inventory, allowing 
them to boost their skills faster. They will also gain more fun when they are
fishing, which is nice if they need a little stress relief.

--==Usefulness==--

4.5/5

This is a hell of a useful trait, and under normal circumstances, I would give
it full marks, but I'm going to save full marks for those that I think are 
the best of the traits, and as such, 4.5 are for good traits, and 5 are for 
the best of the best. 


**********
*Artistic*
**********

Those who are artistic have a natural talent with the brush, and as such, they
are quite useful in making a hell of a lot of money through painting. They 
make good artists, and indirectly, musicians and writers.

--==Benefits==--

These Sims get their Painting skills a lot faster than other Sims, which is 
quite useful. They will also gain their Guitar and Writing skills faster than
other Sims, but not as fast as their gains in Painting.

--==Disadvantages==--

No shortcomings, except that they throw paint everywhere.

--==Unique Properties==--

Like many other traits, these Sims love to talk about their hobbies and as 
such, they can talk about the arts to other Sims. Also, with free will 
enabled, they will interact with the guitar and paint easel far more often,
which is nice. 

--==Usefulness==--

5/5

This is one hell of a useful trait. For those Sims for which the prospect of a
job does not entertain them, painting, busking and novel writing is a good 
way of making money. The higher your skill, the more money you make, and as 
such, it is a good idea to level up all those three skills fast to make a lot
of money fast. Though this is considered an indirect job. 


**********
*Athletic*
**********

Athletic Sims are the athletes, they are the best in their fields of running, 
throwing spears everywhere and trying to out hammer throw the Hammer Bros. 
They can push their bodies to the limit and far beyond that of normal Sims.

--==Benefits==--

Athletic Sims earn their athletic skills a lot faster than that of other Sims,
and being as fit as they are, they will take a lot longer period of time to
get the negative Fatigued moodlet that people who exercise can get.

--==Disadvantages==--

Since they love keeping fit and being health nuts, they will not tolerate 
other Sims bad-mouthing fitness, and if they hear that, they will suffer a 
nice relationship drop. 


--==Unique Properties==--

These Sims have it good, they love their exercise, and they also love to talk
about exercise to other interested Sims, though don't think that they will
have a nice time with couch potatoes.

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE COUCH POTATO TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

2/5

Sure, it is nice to build up your athletic skill, but the problem is that 
the athletic skill pretty much has no use, unlike many of the other skills,
they don't make money, or save money. 


**********
*Bookworm*
**********

Bookworms have a passion to read and write books, which is quite handy for
aspiring novelists. They are quick to read through all books, and they are
faster in terms of writing books. 

--==Benefits==--

The Bookworm are able to read through books faster, which are useful in 
finishing recipe books and fish books, and that means that they will be able
to get that new recipe faster. They will also be able to write faster in 
terms of writing novels, their homework, or just working on their writing
skill. They will also get more fun from reading, which is quite useful as 
well.

--==Disadvantages==--

The best thing is, they have no disadvantages.

--==Unique Properties==--

Like many other traits, the Bookworm love to talk about their hobbies, and
they will love to talk about books to other Sims, which is always a nice
touch. Also, they will get a nicer environmental boost from rooms with a 
bookshelf in it, which is nice to attain that beautiful lot moodlet. 

--==Usefulness==--

5/5

Seriously, writing through novels faster is exceptionally interesting 
because they can get through more novels faster, and given that some books,
requiring about 24 Sim hours to get it down will get at least a thousand
Simoleons and this is for 6 weeks. Seriously, a very useful perk. 


*******
*Brave*
*******

Brave Sims are fearless, they fear nothing, and in the face of adversity,
they will stay calm and take the disaster head on. They will sacrifice 
themselves in order to protect those that they love, and the possession 
that they treasure. 

--==Benefits==--

Brave Sims are brave, and even though most Sims who tackle on burglars 
are at least Level 3 on the career chain for Law Enforcement, Brave Sims
don't need that prerequisite in order to fight burgulars and defend their
home. Brave Sims can also use a fire extinguisher to immediately put out a 
fire should it get out of hand, and unlike other Sims, he will not panic. 
Finally, they will do much better in the Law Enforcement and Military
career than other normal Sims, who aren't brave.

--==Disadvantages==--

Brave Sims are brave, and as such, they fear nothing, and have no 
disadvantages.

--==Unique Properties==--

These Sims have guts, willing to talk on robbers in their homes, well, it 
isn't all that hard, those robbers aren't even armed with plastic sporks, 
let alone a plastic butter knife. They will also have the ability to 
occasionally demand a raise from their boss whilst at work, though the
probability of success is proportional to the job performance, the more that
meter is filled, the higher the chance of success, though it might backfire
and that could be nasty. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT PICK THE COWARD OR LOSER TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

3/5

Sure, being able to put out fires and take on robbers is a nice side bonus,
but the real benefit is the Law Enforcement and the Military career bonus. If
you are planning to move into those career ladders, this is useful, but
otherwise, they are home defenders. 


*****************
*Can't Stand Art*
*****************

Sims who cannot tolerate Art will be intolerant towards art, they cannot 
stand such snooty paintings. Never place an expensive piece of art in the 
home of one who hates art, it will give them a negative moodlet. 

--==Benefits==--

There is no benefit to hating art, except hating art.

--==Disadvantages==--

Basically, when they see an expensive piece of art, they will get a big
negative moodlet, and a small piece of art, or an inexpensive piece of 
art, they will still get a negative moodlet. They will not tolerate talk
about art either.

--==Usefulness==--

1/5

Besides it's usefulness to making some nice movies, there is no real 
point to making this a trait. Use make sure that you don't send them into
an art gallery, it might make them explode with rage.


*************
*Charismatic*
*************

These are the Barack Obamas of Sims, these are for the great orators and the
great communicators. As such, they will love to throw parties and socializing
and they will never put a foot wrong in social situations. These guys are 
everyones best friend, though it might be hard to maintain all those 
connections.

--==Benefits==--

All of these Sims will have a great advantage in the social conversation, as
they will always get more friendship points than other Sims with the same
amount of talk. They will also do a lot better when they are in jobs that
have tones that involve social interaction, for example, Law Enforcement when
talking to their partner, they will get more job performance for the same 
amount of effort. 

--==Disadvantages==--

There are no disadvantages to being a social butterfly, however, you do need
to maintain all those friendships.

--==Unique Properties==--

These will be gifted with a Charisma book at the start, so they have a little
boost to play with initially. They will also be able to debate politics with
other Sims, which is useful as a source of interaction between like-minded
Sims. They can also boost about anything and everything, to good effect as 
well. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE LOSER TRAIT.

--==Usefulness==--

3.5/5

Friends are no longer a requirement for jobs, which is one tell of a useful
removal, because it was hard to maintain a lot of friends. However, it isn't
useful if you need to maintain thousands of friends, in real life, we have
Facebook, the Sims don't have that luxury. 


**********
*Childish*
**********

Childish Sims are just that, they cannot act their actual age, so they are 
literally childish at heart. They will be ale to act as a child, even when 
they are an adult. I mean, who doesn't like playing with their doll house at
the age of 40 >_>

--==Benefits==--

The benefits from children's toys are still useful in giving the associated
moodlets for it. Basically, the beneficial moodlets from toys will still
apply when they are an adult.

--==Disadvantages==--

Childish Sims are easily bored, and remember when we were kids, weren't we 
all? Anyway, if they are at the end of repeating social interactions, the
effects in terms of relationship are much lower. So you'll need a fair amount
of variety to make sure that they are entertained.

--==Unique Properties==--

There are two fun properties that belong to childish Sims, they will not be
afraid of Ghosts, seeing that the only ghost they know of is Casper the 
Friendly Ghost, and secondly, and somewhat strangely, they will have the
ability to fish in a swimming pool. There are a variety of things that come
into mind when you fish into a swimming pool, and fish aren't the things 
that come into mind.

--==Usefulness==--

1.5/5

Lets face it, this isn't all that useful, environmental boosts from children
toys are easily overtaken with a nice, expensive piece of art, and being 
able to fish in the pool isn't as much fun as the sea, and finally, being 
scared of ghosts isn't such a big deal, wet your pants, and move on. 


********
*Clumsy*
********

Being a butterfingers isn't actually such fun, nor is being a clutz either.
There are some interesting things that can come out of being butterfingers,
and dropping everything everywhere, but hey, most of use are butterfingers
anyway, right?

--==Benefits==--

Well, does having brand new china plates every night count? 

--==Disadvantages==--

Okay, this will be interesting. When they are catching fish, their skills
with handling fish may occasionally let the fish escape, which isn't all
that nice. They will occasionally drop their plate of food on the floor as
their fingers "slip". Quite funny really.

--==Unique Properties==--

This is the best one, when they are proposing and on one knee, proposing
with the ring, they drop the ring. If this isn't useful for videos, I don't
know what is. This is entertainment at it's best.

--==Usefulness==--

3/5

Despite it being bad, it does have a hell of a lot of comedic appeal, I 
mean, who doesn't want to see a proposal go bad? It's like an episode of
everyone's favourite sitcom. At look on the bright side, at least they 
didn't tape over the video game with a NFL match, and then tape over the
NFL moment of the match with the Sealing Kiss. 


*******************
*Commitment Issues*
*******************

These Sims, as you can already gather, have some problems saying "I Do", and
as such, they will try and avoid all forms of settling down. They enjoy 
living the high life, so they don't want long term relationships, and they 
don't want long term careers, think of them as Slackers in the Sims 2. And
don't think about marriage either. 

--==Benefits==--

There are no benefits to not settling down. Maybe living the high life?

--==Disadvantages==--

These Sims do not take to relationship type social interactions well, they
do not, like, for example, a proposal to get marriage or engaged, that is a 
form of being settled down, and that is something that they don't want.

--==Unique Properties==--

There is one way for such Sims to get married, they need to have an extremely
strong romantic bond, thing of them as exceptionally insecure, they need to 
have proof that the other person loves them back rather than blind faith. They
will also not take kindly to staying in a career for a long time. And that
normally means that when it starts to look good for them, as in career 
prospects, they will want another job, in another career path. 

--==Usefulness==--

2.5/5

Well, this is starting to describe a fair amount of people nowadays, but it 
is interest to make a movie out of this, see how ways that a person can escape
a marriage proposal. It'd be like being trapped into a corner, with a person
on one knee, and then, they teleport away. Now that would be a nice movie. 
Just make sure you do it before Hollywood gets in the way. 


***************
*Computer Whiz*
***************

These guys are sort of like me, love spending their time on the computer and
anything to do with computers, they are good with. They are quite good with
tinkering at their computer, and they also are good enough to start some 
freelance work through hacking.

--==Benefits==--

Basically, being good with computers allows your Sims to repair their
computers, provided that they have some Handiness skill, with relative ease
and without fail. That saves money on repair costs. They can also go in and
start some hacking, they will get some money for hacking, though the money 
isn't that great. And also, when they decide to play games on the 
computer, they will get more fun out of it than other Sims. 

--==Disadvantages==--

There are no disadvantages of being a computer whiz besides the lack of a 
social life and sunlight, but that's about it XD

--==Unique Properties==--

They have their unique properties, they can hack computers and they can repair
them, but they can also go and talk about computers to other Sims, though that
is provided that they are interested in that subject. 

--==Usefulness==--

3.5/5

It is a nice trait, but overall, it isn't the best, in my opinion. Sure, being
able to repair the computer is a good idea, and the hacking income is rather
mediocre at best, and sure, having increased fun is a good idea, but that is 
about all of it. It isn't bad, but it isn't riveting either. 


**************
*Couch Potato*
**************

These Sims are not actual potatoes, but they are just the lazy slobs that
decide it is a good idea to sit and watch the television all day, all the 
time. Sure, it is a good life, but they need a hell of a lot of work for
them to actually become active, or even get a job. If only watching TV was a 
paid job...

--==Benefits==--

The main benefit is that when they are comfy, on the couch or in bed, they 
will have a far stronger Comfy moodlet. That means, their perk is about 50%
stronger than that of other Sims, which is a nice mood boost. They also get
fun a lot faster than that of other Sims when they watch television. 

--==Disadvantages==--

The main disadvantage is that they need a lot more sleep than other Sims. This
is quite a powerful disadvantage for one reason, because it takes a lot more 
time for sleep/energy to be recovered this time around. 

--==Unique Properties==--

These Sims cannot do workout unless they are in a really good mood, and I mean
a very good mood. This is important because if they are dangerously overweight
and you want to trim that flab, you need to make them really happy, and that
often means a lot of sitting on the couch, watching the idiot box. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE ATHLETIC TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

2/5

Sure, it is great to have such a perk, they get more fun and the Comfy
moodlet lasts that little bit longer, but overall, the disadvantage of the
extra time that is lost to sleep is far more significant. Bear in mind that
having fun can increase skills, sleeping doesn't. 


********
*Coward*
********

This always reminds me of the Monty Python and the Holy Grail, get back here,
cowards! Anyway, a coward is scared of anything and everything that can 
remotely cause them harm, so they are pretty much useless in a fight. Make 
sure you purchase enough bubble-wrap. 

--==Benefits==--

There are no benefits of being a coward, except the countless video 
opportunities for funny videos. 

--==Disadvantages==--

These guys will get a Scared moodlet whenever they cross pathes with a ghost,
a burglar, fire, and even the Grim Reaper, regardless of the target that is 
looking for. When those stimuli present themselves, they will normally run
like the wind, but sometimes, they may just collapse instead. 

--==Unique Properties==--

What is unique to them is the ability to run away, they will get that lovely
option to flee.


--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE BRAVE OR DAREDEVIL TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

1/5

Sure, there are many video opportunities, but there is no practical use about
them and my rating is all about practical uses, not the countless video
opportunities, or this will get OVER 9000!


***********
*Daredevil*
***********

These guys are the thrill seekers, the adrenaline junkies. They live on the
extreme side of life, with little regard of the consequences. These guys are
crazy, and what it does is allow them to do EXTREME chores. Crazy.

--==Benefits==--

These guys will be able to put out a fire on the lot they are currently on a
lot faster than normal Sims, but not as good as a firefighter. Also, they can
never be burnt to death, so if you want a homicidal maniac who kills their
prey with a blowtorch, go ahead. 

--==Disadvantages==--

They don't have any disadvantages, do they do need maintain their thrill
seeking behaviour.

--==Unique Properties==--

These guys are crazy. With their normal household duties, they can have an
EXTREME option of it, which sort of gives them a little fun. They can also
use the Watch This social interaction, which pretty much means that they will
do some extreme stuff, and receive the Adrenaline Rush moodlet for their
troubles. It pays to be crazy for these guys.

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE COWARD TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

3.5/5

This is one of the most interesting traits, it is fun to be a homicidal 
maniac, and that is what gets the points. Well, if they are bad cooks, the
whole house can burn down, yet they will survive. Writing this gives me so
many movie ideas.


*******************
*Dislikes Children*
*******************

Yes, you too can be like Mr. Burns, just hate children. As such, these Sims
don't want to do anything to do with children, they don't want to talk to 
them, they don't want to play or entertain them, they don't want to teach
them, and more importantly, they don't want to give birth or be part of the
birth of a child.

--==Benefits==--

Besides from being the evil monster and the bane of children everywhere, 
nothing. 

--==Disadvantages==--

These Sims will not take it lightly to be around children, they will go out
of their way to make their life, and the life of the guardian, a living 
hell. If children and these Sims are on the same lot, prepare for some 
fireworks. 

--==Unique Properties==--

These Sims feel evil around children, and when they are near children, they
will get a negative moodlet. Don't worry, if they hate children so much, they
don't reproduce, and as such, they will not have the opportunity to be near
them.

--==Usefulness==--

0.5/5

There isn't any use for this, so really, besides video appeal, everything 
about them are bad. So practically, this gets a 0.5 from me, which is far 
more generous than a zip. 


******************
*Easily Impressed*
******************

These Sims are just easy to impress, even the smallest of successes, like not
falling over on the pavement when doing one's shoelaces. Really, they aren't
hard to impress. Maybe they just have low standards. 

--==Benefits==--

These Sims, as you can already gather, will always have a positive response
to social interactions that involve boasting in some way, shape or form. And
that is about it.

--==Disadvantages==--

None, except the disturbing lack of any high standards that these Sims seem
to possess. 

--==Unique Properties==--

See, this is quite a powerful effect, though you want this in other Sims, and
not so much your own. Sims who are easily impressed are the best for Sims who
like boasting, and they make easy friends, you can just boast to them twice a 
day and they'll be happy. 

--==Usefulness==--

4/5

This is quite useful in making friends, however, it is only useful if that is
the person on the receiving end of a boast, rather than the delivering end. 
However, it is useful in inter-family affairs, and if you keep a tight knit 
family, useful in a parent, how doesn't like their kid succeeding? Don't 
answer that question.


******
*Evil*
******

These guys, as you can already tell by the name of the trait, are evil. They
love the dark side, and if they had a choice, they'd all be using dual red
lightsabres. Anyway, they love taking enjoyment when other fail, which is 
pretty much all of society, and they love to be as far away from the goody 
goodies as possible. Imagine loving next to a police station...

--==Benefits==--

These Sims get moodlets around the failure of others. When one of the mood
bars of others reach the breaking point, so when others are quite hungry or 
need to use the toilet, or are droopy, they will get a nice positive moodlet
out of that. And of course, they will always have an affinity to the dark
arts, and in this game, that means that they will do very well in the Criminal
career path. 

--==Disadvantages==--

Of course, they do not get along with those with the Good trait. That means
that should a person with the Good trait meets your Sim, expect a fair 
share of disagreements. It is possible to keep that friendship going, though
it is under a fair amount of strain. They also don't do well with those in
Law Enforcement either. 

--==Unique Properties==--

These guys have a head start in crime, and they are one side of the battle
between good vs evil. Other than that, they don't have much in terms of 
uniqueness. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE THE GOOD TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

4.5/5

This is exceptionally useful if you love to be evil, though it is the bane
of those who are good. They excel in crime, and they take enjoyment out of
the misery of others, but that is about it. Now, if only there were 
lightsabres already included, or maybe a chicken costume. 


***********
*Excitable*
***********

These guys are so excited about anything and everything. These will get a 
nice boost when things go right, if something good happens, they get a 
positive vibe, but they don't get the reverse, which is a pretty good thing,
if you come to think about it. 

--==Benefits==--

These Sims can get the positive moodlet of being excited from a large amount
of activities that have them doing something that is beneficial. Things like
dancing to their favourite music, eating their favourite food, catching a 
fish or winning an opportunity event, will have them gaining that moodlet. 
Fun, eh?

--==Disadvantages==--

The best thing about being excitable is, besides the lack of caffeine, is
that they have no disadvantages.

--==Unique Properties==--

These guys can get the positive moodlet before anything, and this is a very
powerful benefit in it's own right. I mean, if their favourite meal was a 
stack of pancakes before going to work, you can see where I'm going. And no,
you don't need to pack a suitcase.

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE GRUMPY TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

5/5

This is one hell of a useful trait, like I said, if you set the favourite 
meal to something they can eat before work, like some waffles or some pancakes
for breakfast (I'm almost tempted to post the link to the waffle song), they 
will get a nice positive moodlet, and before work, that will give them a nice
boost to that promotion or raise they've been looking for. 


*****************
*Family Oriented*
*****************

These guys are all about family, so if you want a nice family business, this
is a good trait to possess. These guys make super parents, they are the best
of the best for parents, they love children and their family. What is more to
be said?

--==Benefits==--

Like I said, they love their family, and as a result, they will have a much
better relationship start than others with family. They can also teach their
children more effectively than other Sims, which is consistant with their
family based trait. 

--==Disadvantages==--

Besides from the fact that they might smother their children, and the 
overbearing love, no baddies here. 

--==Unique Properties==--

As many other traits, these guys have the ability to talk about their trait,
and as such, they can talk about their family to others. That's if they will 
bother to listen.

--==Usefulness==--

3.5/5

Sure, this is useful in terms of family care, but other than that, this isn't
all that useful when you come to think about it. Sure, it does help you teach
your kids to walk and talk faster than other Sims, but other than that, it 
doesn't do all that much. 


********
*Flirty*
********

People who should be told to get a room fall under this umbrella. These 
Sims always look for some romance, and they are somewhat more successful than
those who can't be bother trying, though it doesn't say much about the type
of people that they attract.

--==Benefits==--

These Sims have access to the flirt actions earlier on in a relationship than
those of other Sims, which is quite a useful boost, but remember that the 
social can be rejected as well as accepted, so just keep that in mind. They
also do well with such socials, getting more of a boost. And finally, when 
they go out and get massages from the spa, they get a little more in terms of
a boost. 

--==Disadvantages==--

Besides the possibility of rejection and emotional heartache that could last
anywhere from a second to a minute, nothing bad. 

--==Unique Properties==--

These guys, when they have free will on them, will tend to use a lot more 
social interactions that lead to flirting, which could be a good thing in 
getting more conquests, but it could also be a bad thing as it would lead to
more rejections as well.

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE UNFLIRTY TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

4/5

This is quite useful if you want to make as many romantic partners as the 
moon has craters, but there are other problems, continued flirting can be a
problem if it leads to problems with other Sims. Just keep an eye on what
they are doing, and they'll be fine. At least they don't have problem finding
the perfect one. Or at least they'll find someone to keep them company for 
the night. 


**********
*Friendly*
**********

Friendly Sims are just that, they are friendly to everyone that they meet,
and as such, they are very good at making new friends, which is rather useful
if you are striving for political careers. 

--==Benefits==--

Basically, these Sims are best at making friendships, they will be able to
make friendships faster and they start with a larger boost to a relationship
when they first meet a new Sim, which is nice. They also have a much easier
time when they are making friendships, as social interactions give a larger
boost than before.

--==Disadvantages==--

There are no disadvantages to being friendly, not everyone is as friendly
as Ned Flanders. 

--==Unique Properties==--

Pretty much what was stated, they get a larger boost when they are starting
a friendship, which is nice, and they will find int easier to make friends
with other Sims, which again, is always nice. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE THE MEAN OR INAPPROPRIATE TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

3.5/5

This is only useful for Charisma type jobs, and that is the Politics and to
a lesser extent, the Journalism career. Of course, having a lot of friends
is rather nice, but the amount of notices that you will get to maintain the
friendships that you have are quite annoying, though it isn't anything that a
party can't solve. 


********
*Frugal*
********

Also known as the tightarse trait, this basically means that your Sims are 
very careful with their money, and what the money is used for. They do not
like wasting anything, especially perfectly good food that isn't spoilt and
they spend their weekends sifting through the newspaper and the internet 
looking for coupons for them to spend at the supermarket or the local book
store.

--==Benefits==--

These guys basically are able to use the internet and the newspaper to cut
some coupons out of it, and that allows you to go to the store that the 
coupon is used for and purchase the specific product at a discounted price,
and that leads to a nice moodlet for you to play with, which is always a 
nice thing, since it is a positive moodlet.

--==Disadvantages==--

These types of Sims are fanatical about price, so if you purchase a very
expensive item, such as that Plasma TV that you have coveting, then they 
will get a negative moodlet because they don't like seeing such money
spent when a smaller TV would have sufficed. They also will get a negative
moodlet faster when they throw food away that could have been set away as 
leftovers.

--==Unique Properties==--

These Sims are careful with their money to say the least, so you might get
some discounted items, but they will not react well when you spend their
hard earned money on items that they want or don't want. Such picky Sims. 
Also, since the politics career relies on campaign donations, these Sims
tend to give a lot less than others. 

--==Usefulness==--

2.5/5

Sure, saving money is good, however, such items that you can get in the 
book store and the grocery store are open on sale, and in the case of the
groceries, most of them can be grown or caught later in the game, which
removes the need for you to go to the store in the first place. They are
good at saving money, but not good at spending it. Unlike most Governments.


********
*Genius*
********

These Sims are the super smart ones, the nerds, point-dexters, and whatever
other name that you have for them, sure, you can beat them up for their lunch
money, but they will be able to calculate the angle and force necessary to
knock you unconcious with a single throw of their protractor. Anyway, these
guys are the masters in chess, so don't take them on unless you know what you
are doing.

--==Benefits==--

These Sims are the best when it comes to logic based skills. They gain logic
skill points a lot faster than other Sims, and they are more proficent when 
it comes to using the telescope to find new planets and stars for money. As a
bonus, they are also very good at chess, which is more of a hidden skill now,
it does not go up with logic. They are also useful in the Medicine, Science
and Law Enforcement careers, where logic is golden. 

--==Disadvantages==--

Despite being beaten up for lunch money at school, and promptly taking down
the bullies with a Pi attack, there are no disadvantages.

--==Unique Properties==--

These guys are smart, so don't play them in chess if you are planning to 
beat them. They will have a bonus in three careers, which is exceptionally
useful, and they will sometimes use the Contemplate action when they have
nothing to do, as to ponder the method the universe was created. 

--==Usefulness==--

5/5

If you are planning to move into any of those three career fields, logic is
going to be necessary to get you far in those fields, which is a very 
important skill to build. Also, they can get some good side money from the
telescope, so if those three careers are ones that you want, this is a must.


******
*Good*
******

These guys are akin to the Jedi order, they are the ones that protect society
from the world at large, from evil doers planning world domination to the 
people who throw the cats into the trees. They are friendly and will help
their friends and family, and they will donate to charitable causes. They are
the other side of the epic battle of good vs evil. Good always wins. Or does 
it?

--==Benefits==--

These Sims are quite hard to piss off, they need a lot of badgering (no 
mushrooms please), to make them quite angry, which is good, and as such, they
are quite good at building relationships with other Sims. They are also quite
good at comforting another Sim. When another Sim is in a bad mood, they have
the option to comfort them, and this gives the other Sim a nice moodlet of 
being comforted. It is nice to help people. 

--==Disadvantages==--

See, being good means that no harm comes to you. See, that gun did kill you,
the bullet did.

--==Unique Properties==--

These Sims also have the ability to donate to a charity, though the name 
always seems to be random, they do not have a set name, so you can donate to
the Llama society if you want. There are increasing options on how much you
wish to donate, but as a general rule, the more you donate, the longer the
charitable moodlet will last. They can, however, only donate once a day, since
the moodlet often lasts for 24 hours at most. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE THE EVIL TRAIT OR MEAN-SPIRITED TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

4.5/5

The reason this is scored so highly is because they can donate money for a 
moodlet that lasts a whole day, and that means they can power on at work for 
a much longer period of time, since that moodlet is quite powerful if you
donate, say, 1000 Simoleons to their cause. However, unlike the Evil trait, 
you don't get any career boost, though it should go to Law Enforcement if
any. 


**********************
*Good Sense of Humour*
**********************

These Sims are those that like to make others laugh, the David Lettermans and
the Jay Lenos of Sim society (I do not want complaints how either one of them
are crap, call them and tell them they're crap, I quite frankly don't care). 
Anyway, these are the joke makers, and as such, they normally have a pretty
fun time out with their friends.

--==Benefits==--

These Sims are quite useful, they will start off with a relationship boost as
well and they can tell a large amount of jokes, and the best thing is that 
they can never fail a joke, their jokes are always a success, and as such, it 
is a good way to break the ice and start a new conversation with someone who
will be your new best friend.

--==Disadvantages==--

Besides being quite annoying with "why did the chicken cross the road?" jokes,
they have no down side.

--==Unique Properties==--

These guys will respond well to jokes as well as make great jokes that can 
never fail. If only my comedy would be like that, right now, it is as funny
as a dustball flying past. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE THE NO SENSE OF HUMOUR TRAIT. DUH. 

--==Usefulness==--

3.5/5

Sure, it is useful for building a relationship, but other than to serve as 
an ice breaker in new relationships, it doesn't contribute all that much, 
though it is interesting to decode exactly what the Sim is trying to say. 


**************
*Great Kisser*
**************

These guys have either been spending far too much time practising on either
their cousins, dolls or teddy bears, but their talent is, strangely enough,
in kissing others. This means that they give out unforgetable kisses, though
I heard a mixture of beer, wine, vodka, rum and whisky does a good job at 
that.

--==Benefits==--

These Sims are just great kissers, and as such, when they kiss another Sim,
which is more like to happen given that they have a higher rate of success,
they will have a stronger relationship boost at the end of the interaction,
which is always something good.

--==Disadvantages==--

Other than to have some people vomit and Mrs Crumplebottom throwing mince
meat from her handbag at them, no disadvantages. 

--==Unique Properties==--

These guys are just good kissers, and that is about all. Sure, they give 
unforgivable kissers, but a few drinks at the bar, or a few dozen drinks,
or a few dozen bottles, do a good job of erasing their memory, and their
liver.

--==Usefulness==--

2.5/5

Sure, they are good at kissing, but the problem is building up the
relationship to the point where they are accepted for kissing takes a fair
amount of time, and by then, the relationship has to be going strong already,
so that defeats the point of this trait somewhat. Great for movies though.
Have a Clumsy Sim drop the ring, followed by an unforgettable kiss. I do 
wonder why I'm not a Hollywood director XD


*************
*Green Thumb*
*************

These Sims are the gardeners, as you can guess, they love anything related 
or indirectly involved in gardening. As such, they are good with the plants
and they can bring them back to life, even if they have been neglected for
a long period of time. 

--==Benefits==--

These Sims have a natural ability to learn the Garden skill better, which is
quite useful. Seeing that gardening is a very good source of money and your
own food source, saving money, it is quite useful. They also have the ability
to revive any dead plants that have died due to neglect straight away, and
finally, they have the ability to harvest better harvestables from plants and
trees than other Sims without this trait. 

--==Disadvantages==--

Besides the skyrocketing cost of water that doesn't seem to be reflected in
your bills, none. 

--==Unique Properties==--

They will automatically start out in the game with a book about gardening for
them to read and gain skill in, which is quite useful to give that little 
boost straight away. They can also gain social in their mood from talking to
plants, which is quite interesting. 

--==Usefulness==--

5/5

This is exceptionally useful, you get much better harvestables, which leads to
more money when you sell the fruits of your labour, and also, it creates a 
much more fulfilling meal when you cook with them. Basically, they set 
themselves up for farming and good food, and that can mean a lot of money.
Don't worry, you don't have to worry about the water bill. 


********
*Grumpy*
********

These Sims are just that, they are grumpy and antsy little people who get 
really easily annoyed, and they are never in a good mood, which kind of makes
them a stick in the mad. They won't be happy, they don't want to be happy,
kind of like Dr. House, just happy being unhappy. 

--==Benefits==--

There are no benefits of being grumpy, other than that Sim being nothing 
more than an annoying prick towards other Sims. 

--==Disadvantages==--

This is kind of a pain, basically, their mood bars take longer to refill, 
especially the fun bar, and that means that they need to be exposed to more 
fun activities for a longer period of time compared to other Sims in order
for them to get them in a good mood, which makes it hard for them to get
that promotion at work.

--==Unique Properties==--

They are just grumpy, they take longer to have fun, and that makes it rather
annoying for them to get that promotion at work or just generally be nice
to others. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE EXCITABLE, GOOD SENSE OF HUMOUR, HOT-HEADED OR NEUROTIC TRAITS

--==Usefulness==--

0/5

Practical uses for this is next to none, there is no point in being a grumpy
old fart because it just creates more work for you to get that promotion or
that raise at work when your mood bar can only take the punishment of work
for so long. 


*******
*Handy*
*******

These Sims are good with playing with tools, and they are generally good 
around the house, unlike Frank Barone, who is the complete opposite. They
are quite good at tinkering with objects, and when things break, they can
repair them without fail or fear of being the target of a zap cannon. These
guys are the master repairers in the game, they will never fail at repairing.

--==Benefits==--

These guys will be able to gain the Handiness skill a lot faster than that
of other Sims, which is quite useful if you consider the amount of time it
takes for it to be built up. They also start off with a book about handiness
to start off with, so they can build their skills up faster. Finally, they
will always succeed in repair and tinkering with objects, they will never
fail, and therefore, never get electrocuted. 

--==Disadvantages==--

Besides the fact that electrical discharges do not seem to effect them,
ruling out electrocution as a form of death, nothing bad. 

--==Unique Properties==--

Again, they will never fail at repairing or tinkering with an object, which
means they will save a lot of money on the repairman. They will also fix an
item so that it is less likely to break, compared to as if it was fixed by
a normal Sim. 

--==Usefulness==--

4.5/5

Sure, things around the home do get broken, and items like the shower and 
the toilet get their fair share of use, which is quite problematic if you
only have one toilet in the house and it is broken. However, the repair costs
aren't that high, and later on in the game, it isn't useful as much. However,
their skill at tinkering is useful, considering the unlocks that you can get
out of tinkering.


********************
*Hates the Outdoors*
********************

These Sims hate sunlight, so they make ideal vampires, Basically, they do 
not being outside, so if they need to do the gardening, or just stay outside
for a prolonged period of time, they get a real quick negative mood. However,
just to make it fair, the trip to work doesn't count as outdoors, they are 
kind of in a car the whole time.

--==Benefits==--

Besides being the ideal vampire, there isn't anything else that is a good
thing about this trait.

--==Disadvantages==--

As mentioned in the intro, they hate the sunlight, and as such, if they stay
outside for more than 30 minutes, at tops, they will get a negative moodlet
where they are plagued by the outdoors. Which is quite annoying, because if 
they need to do some grocery shopping or some fishing, they will get this 
moodlet. 

--==Unique Properties==--

There is nothing unique about hating the outdoors, and if real life was sort
if incorporated, these guys would be dead due to a lack of Vitamin D. So make
sure all of you kids spend some time outside in the sunlight, you need that
Vitamin D to survive. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE LOVE THE OUTDOORS TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

0.5/5

This is useless, besides comedic appeal of people hating fresh air, there is
nothing interesting about this trait. Sure, this goes well with being a couch
potato, but even then you need to take some time outside and use it to collect
and pay the bills. Or maybe you just like seeing the Repoman a fair amount of
times. 


***************
*Heavy Sleeper*
***************

If this was a real life trait, I definitely want it. Anyway, these guys will
be able to sleep through everything, from the phone ringing to be B-2 Spirit
dropping bombs next to their bed, or a tank demolishing half their house,
they will sleep through anything and everything, which is a good and a bad
thing. Let me explain why.

--==Benefits==--

These guys will sleep through anything and everything, and that means that if
an appliance such as the stereo or the phone goes off and wakes people up,
these Sims will sleep right through it and they will continue to sleep as if
nothing as happened. This is quite a nice thing to have, because if you wire
your stereo with house speakers, they will go off and wake people up. 

--==Disadvantages==--

However, there is a downside to heavy sleeping, these guys will also sleep
through things like burglar alarms. So if a robber decides to comes in and 
sets the alarm off, these guys will sleep through it like nothing has happened
at all, which is quite interesting, and quite annoying because they can't stop
a robber in their tracks. Not even a fire can wake them up. Deep sleep. 

--==Unique Properties==--

Basically, they have the ability to sleep through anything and everything, so
nothing will wake them up. They will also take their sleep to work, and as 
such, in careers, they will have the option to sleep at work, though it 
doesn't do wonders for their job performance.

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE LIGHT SLEEPER TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

3.5/5

This is quite useful for most Sims, the ability to sleep through everything is
useful, but if you are a brave Sim, it isn't all that useful since you cannot
fight of robbers should they decide to start a home invasion. Though if you
have a burglar alarm, you don't have to worry too much. Anyway, think if it is
good idea or not, remember, the usefulness part is just my opinion on its
practical uses.


*******************
*Hopeless Romantic*
*******************

This is the idealist type of romance seeker, the naive, idealistic type, 
they are on their quest to find their soulmate, and they will stop at nothing
to get it. To them, romance is like a well played romance movie, like the
Notebook, and they will take on this pursuit, despite the clarity of reality,
which may suggest that this isn't such a good idea, the Notebook was, after
all, set in the 1940s-50s. 

--==Benefits==--

These guys, when they are on the receiving end of a romantic interaction, 
will get more of a boost than other Sims, which is quite useful when they
are trying to boost up the relationship between the pair. Also, when they 
have a romantic interest in the room, someone that are trying the court, using
the correct lingo, they will get an environmental boost as well, which is 
quite useful. 

--==Disadvantages==--

However, being a hopeless romantic, the romance movies are always happily
ever afters, and when they have their heart broken into tiny little pieces,
they will suffer a negative moodlet that is far more powerful than that of
normal Sims, who move on. 

--==Unique Properties==--

Basically, they love their romance, and this translate to novel writing. When
they write romance novels, they are far more proficent than other Sims, which
means that their romance novels will attract far higher royalties rate than
that of other Sims. Considering how much those books make a week, this is a 
sizable sum of money we are talking about. 

--==Usefulness==--

3.5/5

I have nothing against chick flicks, if they are done right, but this is like
living in one. These guys and gals live as if it was in a romance novel, so
they love the love, and hate the hate. Basically, if you are going to have one
of these guys, just think of the money. Money can buy love, in most cases. Or
can it?


************
*Hot-Headed*
************

These guys are quick to anger, and they will quickly fire up and that makes
them quite scary. They will fire up over anything, especially breaking items,
it really wasn't their fault, and most important, they will get exceptionally
pissed off if they get fired from their job. So treat these guys are grenades
with short fuses. One, BOOM!

--==Benefits==--

Besides making fun movies of them blowing up next to other Sims, there aren't
any advantages. 

--==Disadvantages==--

They will suffer from far stronger negative moodlets than other Sims if the
moodlet is related to them and their, ah, anger-management problems (that was
a great movie by the way). If they break something, their negative moodlet 
is far stronger, and getting fired, well, call the bomb-disposal squad. 

--==Unique Properties==--

Never decide to use negative social interactions with these delicate bombs,
if they so much as get on the receiving end of some teasin, watch them 
explode and start firing back, starting World War 42. Basically, keep these
guys around in some bubblewrap, they might need it.

--==Usefulness==--

1.5/5

It is only interesting as them to keep it alive. These guys are only there 
in order to keep life interesting. They will blow up over broken items which
easily, so the handyman should be on speed-dial, or a handy Sim is there to
meet them happy. Still, videos are a good thing though. 


*************
*Hydrophobic*
*************

Keep these guys away from water. As you can guess, hydro means water and
the phobic means fear. Basically, do get them near water, they will not 
like it. They dislike showers and getting wet in sprinklers, but what they
will really hate is the pool. They do not like it, and they will not enter
it. 

--==Benefits==--

Watching these guys run like crazy when they get wet from the sprinkler. 
That's about it.

--==Disadvantages==--

These guys will hate water with a passion. When in the shower, they are 
exposed to water, so watch that negative mood build up and explode over
someone. When in the pool, watch their hatred slowly build up until they
get really annoyed. So yeah, keep them away from water, even if they 
smell, funny. 

--==Unique Properties==--

They will never get into the pool on their own free will, they will never
enter it. They will enter showers, however. They will also hate playing
in the bath, they will not stand it, and they will never get the playing
with Superduck moodlet either. 

--==Usefulness==--

2/5

Basically, points for exploding, but in reality, it isn't very practical.
These guys hate water, and although it isn't a large part of their life,
they also hate standing near it, so wet floors around the house are a no no. 
Keep it nice and dry, and they'll applaud you for it, make it a little wet,
and watch them scream. It's a shame that weather wasn't programmed, I'd like
to see them singing in the rain.


***************
*Inappropriate*
***************

These guys have no sense of timing, they will talk about the wrong things
at the wrong times. It's like making jokes about dead people when they
recently died, not in good taste. Or jokes about deeds that should not be
discussed in public, unless drunk. They always like to tease people, and
at some stages, mock them, but they always thing it is okay, and as such,
never apologise.

--==Benefits==--

These Sims have no sense of dignity, and as such, they will gladly search
through the rubbish of other Sims to find more trash, and sometimes, some
goodies that they can take home. Though watch out for the negative moodlet
that one gets from searching trash. 

--==Disadvantages==--

These guys, socially, will never admit that they are wrong, and as such, they
will not be able to apologise to anyone for anything for their crimes. It
wasn't them. They will also get a social interaction to replace that, they
will be able to Make Fun Of others, and that is just a source of entertainment
for them, nothing else. Though expect relationship to drop a little. 

--==Unique Properties==--

Well, they cannot apologise and they can make fun of others, and that is 
about it. Though searching through the trash is fun, and smelly. Most of
the items that you get are cheap items that can easily be found in the 
buy catalog, if you bother to look. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE FRIENDLY TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

2.5/5

You can actually make a fair amount of money if you rummage through people's
trash, though you constantly need to take showers to get rid of that moodlet
that you get when searching through trash. Although it isn't an easy task, so
stick with your neighbours. They are weak, however, socially, so if you want
to make the world's biggest jackass quickly, this trait is one for you. 


********
*Insane*
********

These guys are very unpredictable, you will have absolutely no idea on what
the hell they are going to do, and as such, insane. These guys will do 
anything that suits them, they can wear their swimwear to sleep, or their
formal clothing in the pool, what they do is completely random. Even if their
actions don't make sense, remember, they are INSANE.

--==Benefits==--

Well, they aren't scared of ghosts, I would think that the ghosts are more 
afraid of them. 

--==Disadvantages==--

However, being insane is quite difficult in terms of marriage. No matter at
what stage of the relationship you propose at, even if it is the highest
possible stage in the relationship, their response is completely random, and
as such, you have the same chance at success at the highest level and at the
bottom level. Insane indeed.

--==Unique Properties==--

Like I said, their actions don't need to make sense, like fishing in a 
swimming pool. That doesn't make sense. They will also sometimes put on the
wrong piece of clothing to an occasion, like wearing their PJs to work, or 
formal clothing into the swimming pool, or their work wear to sleep. It is
completely random with these people. And, just to cement the idea that they
are insane, they will be able to talk to themselves, gaining social points.

--==Usefulness==--

3.5/5

There is nothing more fun than being insane, but it does lose points for 
having a random response to marriage, which is quite annoying. However, it is
just downright funny to see these guys interact with one another, they will
do the most crazy of things, and the best part of it is, you don't even need
to lift a finger to watch this. 


**************
*Kleptomaniac*
**************

The Benders of the Sim world, they have a perchant of having wandering
fingers that always seem to find their way onto someone else's possessions
and then ending up in their pocket. They will always seem to accidently 
place someone else's possession in their pocket, for keeps, from school,
work, or just for the hell of it, their neighbour's home. 

--==Benefits==--

What is a bigger benefit than being able to steal things from others. They
will be able to nick some stuff from work, school, or their neighbour's 
home, though it is random in what they steal, you cannot set them to steal
a specific item. 

--==Disadvantages==--

When you steal something from someone, that person tends not to like you 
very much for stealing their items. As such, you suffer a relationship drop
from them, and that is well deserved as well. Hey, I don't like people 
stealing my junk, do you? 

--==Unique Properties==--

When an item is stolen, that item is branded as stolen, and as such, you
really don't want that person to see a stolen possession of theirs in your
possession, so be careful. They will, however, also have the ability to 
return the stolen object back to their owners, in return for a moodlet of
returning stolen goods. 

--==Usefulness==--

4/5

Hell, stealing is fun, though it isn't in real life, the Sims haven't
developed a concept of a prison system yet. You sometimes might be able
to steal some good stuff, but the fun only lasts as long as you get away with
the crime, get caught in the act, and yeah, it is easy to make some quick
enemies. 


***************
*Light Sleeper*
***************

These guys cannot get a good nights worth of sleep, they are constantly 
tossing and turning in their beds, and even a pin dropping on the floor
could wake them up from their sleep, they will not sleep through anything,
unlike their heavy sleeper counterparts.

--==Benefits==--

Well, on the bright side, when a robber decides to come along and starts 
to borrow some items from your house, your Sims with super acute hearing
can hear the robber opening the door and they will be fully awake for a 
full on fight with the robber, without fail. 

--==Disadvantages==--

They will, however, wake up from anything, from loud noises, such as 
children, or when the TV is turned on, or that telephone starts buzzing, or
someone has the stereo too loud, they will always wake up, and as such, it
is hard for them to attain the Fully Rested moodlet unless everyone else
is sleeping.

--==Unique Properties==--

They will have the ability to research sleep techniques from the internet
via the computer, however, it really doesn't help them, they will still
remain super sensitive to noises. Shame it doesn't help them, maybe some
really thick mufflers?

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE THE HEAVY SLEEPER TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

1.5/5

This isn't useful if they are going to go to work the next day and they 
want that promotion because that Fully Rested moodlet is quite powerful and
it quite long lasting as well. Basically, these guys are only good for 
house defence for your burglars, and that is about it, they will not able
to sleep through parties, so if you really want that Fully Rested moodlet,
keep it quiet. 


*******
*Loner*
*******

These guys are the introverts, they love spending time by themselves rather
than enjoy the company of others, which is quite strange, and is getting
increasingly common in today's society. Anyway, these guys love activities
that only involve themselves, and they get nervous when they are hanging
around people that do not trust or hang out in large groups. So yeah, give
these guys some room.

--==Benefits==--

These guys love spending time by themselves, they will always be entertained
to the point where they get a moodlet for Solitude, which is quite 
interesting, you get to have a positive mood by yourself.

--==Disadvantages==--

They will get a negative moodlet when they start to hang around people, so
building up friends will be a hard task when their mood says that they just
don't want to have any friends at the moment. 

--==Unique Properties==--

These guys just cannot have friends, and as such Charisma based jobs are 
hard for them. I mean, Barack Obama didn't become President if he didn't
interact with others. However, if they work on their own, they are quite
useful, so these guys make very good painters and novelists.

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE THE PARTY ANIMAL TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

3.5/5

These are useful, exceptionally useful, in making money from gardening,
painting and novel writing, but other than they, they will have a hard 
time at making money from work. Most work requires interaction with other
co-workers, and they are poor at that. However, what is interesting is 
that they will act like normal Sims if they are with someone who is 
considered their friend. The hard part is trying to get them friends. 


*******
*Loser*
*******

No, I'm not talking to you, it's a trait. Anyway, Loser Sims are just 
Sims who are not good at winning. Great Description. Anyway, they will
hardly win at games, so in a game of Chess, they might be a grand master,
but their loser trait will force them to lose a fair amount of matches for
someone who is a grand master. They will fail, and fail they shall. But
to them, failure isn't something to get angry over, they'll just have a 
cry. 

--==Benefits==--

This is funny, they will get a boost in their mood with the Winner moodlet
if they actually win a game, say in chess. Sure, most people get a boost,
but their boost will be stronger. Again, the problem is actually winning 
a game.

--==Disadvantages==--

They will lose, and they will lose quite often, so in video games and in
chess games, they will lose most of the time, though this is nothing new
and they don't get a negative moodlet. But all those losses has made them
rather annoying, they'll just keep complaining about their inabiltiy to 
win at anything.

--==Unique Properties==--

These Sims are just interest to watch, they cannot win at anything. 
However, it doesn't make them useless, they are quite useful for other
Sims to gain a nice Winner moodlet before heading off to work. See, uses,
though for other Sims.

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE BRAVE OR CHARISMATIC TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

2.5/5

These are only good to keep around the house if you plan to make all the
other Sims happy by giving them a punching bag of sorts, they call all
have the Winner moodlet by defeating this wimp. However, on the rare
occasion they do win, imagine what they can do. A lot. Before they sink
to the crushing depths of defeat, again.


********************
*Loves the Outdoors*
********************

Unlike their nature hating cousins, these guys love nature with all that they
have, and as such, they love spending their time outdoors, so activities that
force them to do this, like fishing and gardening will greatly satisfy
them. However, this love of the outdoors can take the better of them and 
force them to spend more time than warranted.

--==Benefits==--

These Sims love the outdoors, and as such, they will get moodlets, positive
ones, for spending time outdoors, which is quite useful. Also, career paths
that require them to spend time outside such as the Science, Military and
the Athletic career will give them a nice boost, reducing their mood decay.
Finally, since they love the outdoors so much, they will get a boost by 
talking about it to other Sims.

--==Disadvantages==--

However, since they love the outdoors, they need to spend a lot of time 
outside, and this needs to be maintained less they get a negative moodlet
for their troubles. They need time outside, and if they don't get it, they
will suffer as a result.

--==Unique Properties==--

Basically, they get a career boost in three career ladders, which is quite
useful, and this is useful as well for gardeners and the like, seeing as 
they spend so much time outside. However, they always need to spend some
time outside, and if they don't, they will get negative moodlets, just the
reverse of the Hates the Outdoors trait.

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE HATE THE OUTDOORS TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

4/5

This is exceptionally useful, a boost in three career fields and moodlets for
doing the gardening. However, the only reason I deduct marks for this trait
is because of maintenance. Sure, they might be a novelist by night, but they
will always need to be outdoors for some time or they will get a sour mood,
and no one wants that. 


*******
*Lucky*
*******

These Sims are the Sim form of Lady Luck, they are lucky in everything that
they do, and as such, it is impossible for them to suffer a bad day. Things
from getting a raise or reducing the chance of a robber targeting your
house are things that luck embodies. So if you have one of these guys in
your household, you can thank your lucky stars.

--==Benefits==--

Basically, by giving them 4 hours of straight sleep, they will have a chance
to obtain the lucky moodlet, which is a positive moodlet that lasts them the
entire day, of 24 hours. That means that get a nice little boost to their
mood, and as a result, that will get a lower chance of encounter things like
fires and robbers. Also, they will have higher chances of getting a successful
raise at work.

--==Disadvantages==--

These guys are all luck, they do not have any bad luck, and as such, they
have no disadvantages.

--==Unique Properties==--

Also as a side bonus, they will also be more likely to win at chess games, 
regardless of the level and they will also have the chance to win at video
games more often than not. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE UNLUCKY TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

5/5

This is quite a useful trait, they have a chance at getting a moodlet for 
just 4 hours sleep, and considering the amount of sleep that one needs to
refill the mood bar, that is quite easy to fulfill. Also, less fires and
broken objects are always a nice touch, it means a lower damage bill and 
less handyman repairs. 


***************
*Mean-Spirited*
***************

These Sims are just mean, simple as that. They don't like to be nice, and
they will go out of their way just to make someone's life hell. They love
to have a fight, and they rejoice when they gain a new enemy, which is quite
interesting. Anyway, if you want to be nasty, then these are the experts to
do it for you.

--==Benefits==--

These guys will never lose in a fight, and this is quite useful, if you want
to make more enemies than anyone else. Though the problem is getting them into
a fight in the first place, but look on the bright side, the robbers won't
be robbing your place any time soon. Also, it is an interesting system of 
moods that they have, the more enemies that they have, the happier their 
mood. Guess friends aren't their strong suit. 

--==Disadvantages==--

These Sims are mean, and as such, they will automatically use negative and
mean social interactions automatically. If you want to rein them in, you 
need to keep a very close eye on what they are doing. They make enemies as
much as I make guides. 

--==Unique Properties==--

They will always win a fight, they will not lose, and as such, they make
great home defenders, provided that they have the brave trait. They will
also be quite useful in making some nice drama, make the town alive. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE FRIENDLY TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

2.5/5

It doesn't pay to be an asshat all the time, but it does save your possessions
from being stolen from you, which is always a bonus. However, the problem is
the amount of friends that you will not possess, you will have a hell of a lot
of enemies, and that limits the type of careers that you can move into. 
Painting and writing are suggested jobs, considering that they don't need to 
be friendly to anyone. 


*******
*Mooch*
*******

These guys love getting their hands on as much as they can without trying to 
fork out a single cent. They will love to mooch food and, more importantly,
Simoleons, from their neighbours, and that makes them quite the source of
unwanted hatred. Their neighbours will go along with their mooching at first,
but even they have their limits, unlike Flanders towards Homer in the 
Simpsons. 

--==Benefits==--

These guys love to mooch, they love to scab, as it were. As such, they will
often head to other homes, and they will tend to end up with some free food
and as many Simoleons that they can lay claim to. This is quite useful, free
food is welcome under any circumstances, and free money, who doesn't want free
money. 

--==Disadvantages==--

Well, they don't like moochers, as in your neighbours, and as such, they will
get some unwanted negative attention from your neighbours, and if you are 
trying to make friends, this won't be a good trait. Most people are okay with
it, like Wilson is to House, but some aren't. 

--==Unique Properties==--

These guys have the option to go into someone's home and use their kitchen
as a source of snacks. Quite useful for the hungry Sim who is out of the
essential foodstuffs and the ones who are too cheap to pay. They also have
the option to mooch of other Sims in social conversations. 

--==Usefulness==--

4/5

This is quite useful, stealing, or rather, mooching money and food from other
Sims who seem to go quite nicely, and they don't seem to have a care in the
world. However, do keep in mind that they don't tend to mooch a lot of high
value items, they get cheap food and some Simoleons, but not enough as a 
source of income. Just make sure that you keep up the relations with the 
neighbours, don't want new enemies out of them. 


**************
*Natural Cook*
**************

These guys are the natural Iron Chefs of the world, they are natural cooks
so they excel in, the obvious, cooking. These guys love cooking, with a 
passion, and they will be able to improve on their cooking, so their 
food is delicious, compared to other Sims. If you are looking for a hearty
5 course meal, look no further.

--==Benefits==--

These guys are cooks, and by stating the obvious, they learn the cooking
skill a lot faster than that of other Sims, and given that learning how to
cook is time consuming, learning on the fly is quite useful. They will 
never ever burn their food either, their dishes are always perfect, which
is useful for that moodlet. And because they cannot fail their dish, they
cannot start fires in the kitchen. 

--==Disadvantages==--

There are no disadvantages of being a natural cook, besides the usual cuts
of your fingers.

--==Unique Properties==--

These guys start off with a cooking book automatically, which is quite 
useful for boost the first few levels and getting some more recipes for their
arsenal. They will also be able to learn new recipes, provided that they can
be learnt given their skill level just by visiting other lots and trying 
new food. Useful. 

--==Usefulness==--

5/5

This is useful for so many reasons. They can learn recipes just by eating them
and this is useful given the cost of the recipe books. The most important
thing is that they can create perfect dishes. This is useful given that there
are moodlets, positive, powerful moodlets for perfect dishes, or a lovely
meal. 


******
*Neat*
******

The neat freaks, these Sims love to have everything clean and dust free, and
this means a lot of toilet cleaning. They will always have the time to clean
the house, regardless of their current mood. They will always clean up after
themselves, and they love that, but they get very annoyed when they are in
an environment that is absolutely filthy.

--==Benefits==--

These Sims will clean up after themselves, so when they finish a meal, they
will always take their dishes and wash them in the sink or the dishwasher. 
When they clean objects, their clean will last for much longer, and that means
that it will take more uses of that item before it requires cleaning. 

--==Disadvantages==--

These Sims will love things neat, so they will get a far more potent negative
moodlet when they are in surroundings that are not up to their standard. They
will also get negative moodlets from other Sims when they have a low hygiene
bar, which means the gym is a pretty much no-go.

--==Unique Properties==--

These Neat Sims have one unique property, they will be able to use the Clean
House social interaction, and basically this interaction allows them to move
around the house and clean every single thing that can possibly be cleaned,
which means all the cleaning, bed making, etc in a single swoop. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE SLOB TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

3.5/5

Don't get me wrong, these are useful, they can easily replace the maid, and 
that is a 125 Simoleon hole buster in a single go. However, there it no 
longer a Cleaning skil, therefore, it is not as useful as it could possibly
be. Though saving money is a nice touch, the negative moodlet is not. 


**********
*Neurotic*
**********

These Sims are the paranoid. They can take the smallest issue and snowball 
it into something that is bigger than Mount Everest. They also tend to worry
a hell of a lot, more than necessary, and as such, they don't tend to calm
down very often, making them exceptionally tense. However, they do seem to
find a lot of comfort in expressing their worries to other Sims. If there
were psychologists in this game, they'd be making a killing of these Sims.

--==Benefits==--

These Sims have one of the most interesting self interactions, they will
be able to do the Freak Out interaction. By scaring the crap out of any
nearby Sims, they will give a powerful mood boost to themselves, which 
is always useful before your Sims move off to work. 

--==Disadvantages==--

These Sims take a lot longer to recover their mood, and as such, fun will
suffer and take a lot longer to recover than before. They will also 
automatically freak out after an accident, such as burning their food or
breaking an object. This isn't very useful, given that it scares the
crap out of nearby Sims. 

--==Unique Properties==--

Basically, their unique property is freaking out. It will basically scare
the crap out of nearby Sims, and with good reason. It is a short process
of scaring people, and after that, they get a new moodlet, the Tranquil
moodlet. 

--==Usefulness==--

3/5

Sure, it is useful to freak out all the time, but the problem with this
trait is that it will scare other Sims, and if those Sims are under your
control, you suffer a lowered mood as a result. This isn't all that 
useful. 


************
*Never Nude*
************

Basically, this is insecurity about their own body, they will never do
anything that exposes their flesh to the light of day, or the darkness
of night. They will never completely remove all their clothing, and 
this extends to the bathroom. 

--==Benefits==--

No benefits, except that you won't need to see that jumbled amount of 
pixels that comes along with Sim nudity.

--==Disadvantages==--

Well, no disadvantages either.

--==Unique Properties==--

The only thing that this trait does it that it will force them to 
never be nude, and as a result, they will go into the bath and into
the shower with their swimwear on. 

--==Usefulness==--

0/5

There isn't any practical use for this, not even a video use for it. As 
such, it will be one of the only traits that will get a complete ZERO from
me. 


********************
*No Sense of Humour*
********************

These people are just no fun, they have no concept of comedy. As such, 
they will attempt to tell jokes, but their jokes will always be flat, it 
just isn't funny. So, as a result, they don't tell them. And they also
will not accept other people's jokes, mainly because they are more often
than not, more funny than their own. 

--==Benefits==--

Well, besides being the stiff, so to speak, they are completely humourless.
Seriously, imagine a world without laughter. So boring. 

--==Disadvantages==--

Since these people do not like jokes in the slightest, they will gain little
in terms of relationship if they are on the receiving end of a joke delivered
by another Sim. This isn't all that fun. 

--==Unique Properties==--

Well, they don't react to jokes, there isn't much else to say. They are,
simply put, boring Sims. Not funny at all. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE THE GOOD SENSE OF HUMOUR OR SCHMOOZER TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

0/5

Again, this is more or less a useless trait, they don't have any fun, and that
really irks me for some reason. Anyway, there is no real use for this trait, so
don't bother too much about it. 


****************
*Over-Emotional*
****************

These Sims are basically bipolar, they suffer from extreme mood swings at the
best of times. When something happens that they should be happy about, they 
are over-excited. When they at the receiving end of a bad event, like losing
a loved one, they will sink to rock bottom lows. So either way, there is 
no moderation, just the extremes and absolutes.

--==Benefits==--

When they receive a moodlet that is positive, they will get a larger mood 
boost from the moodlet compared to other Sims, which is exceptionally handy 
when you come to think about it.

--==Disadvantages==--

There are the ups, and there are the downs. When they get a negative moodlet,
they will have a more potent moodlet. That means, they will get a larger 
negative mood drop compared to other Sims. What comes up, must come down. 

--==Unique Properties==--

Basically, it is that, they have extreme reactions to everything, so the 
good moodlets are more, well, good, and the negative moodlets are far more
negative. This is both a good and a bad thing, so this trait is effectively
a dual-edged sword. 

--==Usefulness==--

3.5/5

This is a powerful trait,however, it all depends on how you use it. If you are
good at keeping your Sims rather happy, then you will be able to make the best
use possible out of this trait, however, the slightest negative moodlet can 
ruin your Sim's mood altogether. Just make sure that you can play with the
balancing act, otherwise, this could get nasty. 


**************
*Party Animal*
**************

These are the centre of attention, they want all the attention that they can
get. These guys love to party, and that is all they will do, party. As a 
result, if any of these guys are ever at a party, you can ensure that it will
be a party that you will want to remember for the rest of your life. And now
we are thinking of possible candidates, aren't we?

--==Benefits==--

These Sims will attend a party regardless of whoever invited them, whether 
they have a good relationship or not. So you can count of them to turn up
to your party. When they turn up, they are more likely than other Sims to 
turn up with a gift, most commonly a plate of food for your consumption. 

--==Disadvantages==--

Well, despite the fact that they don't seem to need any sleep whatsoever, 
there are no disadvantages.

--==Unique Properties==--

This is a fun trait to have at parties, if they are able to, they will use
the Whoo interaction, and if it turns out to be successful, they will get 
two positive moodlets for their troubles, the Life of the Party and the 
Awesome Party moodlet. This is a nice boost after a long hard day at work.

--==Usefulness==--

2.5/5

You may think that it is a rather low rating for a trait that gives access
to two massive moodlets, but in reality, you also need a use for those 
moodlets. It is impractical to have a party before work, and as such, 
there is nothing that you can use the mood boost for. So, sure, it is 
useful for the mood boost, but it isn't useful since there is no use for it.


***************
*Perfectionist*
***************

These guys are perfectionists, they need everything to be perfect. As such,
they will take a much longer period of time cooking, or writing, or even 
painting, the sole reason being that they want it to be perfect, and as such,
the resulting product is far better than that done by normal Sims. They 
trade time for quality. These guys want nothing but perfection, and as such,
they will be annoyed if it does not go their way. 

--==Benefits==--

As a result of their nature, they are more likely to present a higher quality
of painting, and better selling novel, a more tasty dish and in the case of
teenagers and children, homework that is well done. 

--==Disadvantages==--

However, because they need everything to be perfect, every i to be dotted, 
every piece of celery to be cut to exactly the same size, they will take a 
much longer period of time to do those tasks. That is, however, if they are
making a high quality meal or doing their homework to perfection. 

--==Unique Properties==--

Well, as a quirk, they will always decide that their bed needs to be made
after they wake up, which is something that was lacking from the Sims 2, they
automatically did that. And it is a source of income for your maid. This goes
well with the Neat trait.

--==Usefulness==--

4.5/5

This is exceptionally useful for those who are planning to make Sims live off
the earnings done by paintings and novels, because if they are of a higher
quality, they will earn more money, simple as that. However, the problem is
that the will take more time, so if you really need that cash injection for
the bills that are due in a few hours, it might be a problem.


***********
*Schmoozer*
***********

These guys are the suck ups, they will willingly suck up to their bosses in
order to get that promotion that they are looking for. They will kiss ass
if it goes them somewhere, either with their co-workers as well as their
bosses, which make them ideal in the work place, provided that they need to
stroke some egos. They are also good at flattery, as it if was a second
calling. 

--==Benefits==--

When these guys compliment someone, it will always be accepted, no matter
what point in the relationship that they are in, and this will always help
improve a relationship, either starting or old friends. They will also be
able to flatter their bosses and co-workers, and that improves their relations
with them if you use the right work tone. This is quite important, because a 
lot of careers require good relations with the boss or your co-workers.

--==Disadvantages==--

Besides being intolerable because they are nothing but yes men, nothing else.

--==Unique Properties==--

Like I said, their compliments will always be accepted, and they are much
better at using the social tones at work, which is a quick way of making fast
friends. They will also have the Chat social interaction replaced with the
Schmooze option.

--==Usefulness==--

3/5

This might be useful, but schmoozing isn't that useful over, it doesn't 
improve relations all that much, and pretty much is only useful in Charisma
based careers, such as the Politics career. Other than that, this is more or
less useless. It doesn't stop you from using this trait, however. 


******
*Slob*
******

A Slob is basically someone who is loves to make as much mess as they possibly
can. And as such, they are the bane of the neat Sims, those who have to clean
up after their wake. Of course, this makes the entire house dirty, and that is
quite annoying, though it is nothing a maid cannot fix. And just to put the
cream on the cake, they will not clean up after themselves. 

--==Benefits==--

Well, normal Sims are affected badly with rotten food, unclean plates and all
that lying around, with these Sims, they don't seem to care about it all that
much, so they don't suffer from those negative moodlets. Also, since they are
bone lazy, they can easy burnt or rotten food without the effects that come 
with them, which is interesting. Stomach with high power stomach acid?

--==Disadvantages==--

Well, anything that these Sims touch will be getting dirty far faster than
before. If they use a shower, it is a guarantee that you will have to clean 
it before long. If they use a toilet, God knows what they do in the toilet, 
because you'll need to clean that as well. Bad aim?

--==Unique Properties==--

Well, if it is any consolation, they will be able to clean their dishes the
easy way, they will be able to lick them clean. I'm not so sure that the other
people in the household are very supporting of eating from plates that have
been licked clean. 

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE NEAT TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

2/5

This isn't as useful, but it makes for great angry videos. The only good thing
is not being able to suffer from those negative moodlets, and being able to
eat whatever food comes their way, even if they've seen better days. This is 
the good, but I'm sure that the cleaning job isn't as much fun. Seriously, the
amount of cleaing up is massive.


******
*Snob*
******

Well, this is different from a slob, you aren't dirty. However, these guys are
the worst of the worst. They are very annoying, and you need to try very
hard to impress them, though they love a compliment, because that makes them
the best of the best. Guess they don't know what flattery is. Anyway, they 
think they are the best of the best, and as such, they will only accept the 
best of the best, that is, they will only want the best items, the best
everything.

--==Benefits==--

These guys will always accept a compliment, they will never resist an 
opportunity to show off how good they are. They will also love looking at
themselves at the mirror, and always love to be surrounded by expensive 
objects, even if they serve no real practical use. 

--==Disadvantages==--

The only real disadvantage is that in social conversations, they are quite 
hard to make friends of, mainly because they are hard to impress. You can
only use compliments so far until they start to get real tiring and just 
becomes ineffective. 

--==Unique Properties==--

Well, they always accept compliments and love expensive stuff, what is more
to like? They will constantly have lifetime wishes of purchasing items that
shows off how good they are, mirrors and expensive items are always on the
list. They also will have good wishes on high paying jobs, so look at the
business career if you want.

--==Usefulness==--

2.5/5

Sure, compliments make it easy to build a relationship, however, you can only
keep them happy with expensive items, and soon, that money dries up, faster if
it happens to be a rainy day. Well, if you want these guys, make sure you have
the money, otherwise, these guys are a royal pain in the ass. 


*************
*Technophobe*
*************

These are the Leroy Jethro Gibbs of the Sims world, they hate technology 
because they are too complicated to operate, and wish it were all back to
telegrams and record players. They will not use any form of electronic 
entertainment, and they'll stick with the tried and true methods, like reading
a good book. 

--==Benefits==--

There are no benefits of being scared of technology. The pixels on that 
screen, they move! What black magic is this?

--==Disadvantages==--

Well, whenever they see electronic items, they do not have a good time with
them. That means that they will have a bad reaction with the television, the
computer and the stereo. Those items will give them a negative mood, and it
won't improve their fun. Shame, those are the fastest ways to have fun. 

--==Unique Properties==--

These guys do not like them, but it doesn't mean that they will not use 
them. But remember, they are more likely to beat the crap out of a keyboard
because it will not do what it is meant to do. Alt? What kind of crap is
this? Anyway, they will have a harder time building up that writing skill,
since it can only be gained by computers, and they will take even longer
in order to repair them. 

--==Usefulness==--

1.5/5

Besides the fact that it is funny, there is nothing good because it means 
that they will take a longer period of time to build up writing and if
they are trying to be a novelist, that will be real pain. Note that there
is nothing good about this trait, nothing good. Everything bad though. 


**********
*Unflirty*
**********

These guys don't like to have a fling here and there, which isn't much fun.
They do not care for romantic advances, and because of that, it makes them
quite hard to romance and get into their pants, so to speak. They are hard
to develop a romantic relationship out of, which is quite frustrating, but
the fun is always in the chase, right? Cheese eating surrender monkeys make
it no fun at all.

--==Benefits==--

There are no benefits, except to heighten the chase a lot more than before,
which is fun.

--==Disadvantages==--

These guys do not like romantic social interactions, and as such, they will
react poorly when they are on the receiving end of social interactions. They
will not like to be kissed, flirted up, dirty jokes, and the like, and they
are less likely to dish them out as well. 

--==Unique Properties==--

What is unique is that they have a lot less romantic social interactions
that they can play with, and this can be a problem for them if they are 
trying to woo someone, and well, maybe they are destined to remained single
for life. It is hard to find Mr or Mrs Right when you are being constantly
rejected.

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE FLIRTY TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

1.5/5

Basically, they are no fun, but the points come from being hard to woo, and
that makes it fun. Everyone loves to be in a competition and wants to be the
winner, and what better prize for the victor than the heart of their lover?
Well, is there one? I'm not entirely sure, to be honest. 


*********
*Unlucky*
*********

Well, these guys are always down on their luck, which is a real shame. Things
will never go right for them, and as such, they will suck at games, which is
sort of the same as the loser trait, though these guys have the advantage
of blaming luck, rather than themselves. Well, if they are always down on 
their luck, things can only look up, right?

--==Benefits==--

Well, since these guys haven't exactly had a good run through life, they are
more prone to accidents, and if they die from it, even the Grim Reaper feels
sorry for them and brings them back to life, free of charge.

--==Disadvantages==--

Well, instead of lucky Sims getting a positive moodlet, these guys will get an
unlucky moodlet after four hours of sleep sometimes, so you will really need
to watch their sleep. This will increase the chances of something bad will
happen, like a robber coming in, a fire breaking out or an appliance that
they are using to explode and break down. Even simple things like winning a 
chess or video game and cooking food gets effected. How can you screw up a 
skill?

--==Unique Properties==--

Well, they are just unlucky and down on their luck. It isn't their fault that
lady luck didn't decide to favour them. Basically, every thing that touch 
turns into crap, don't let them cook, or it will start a fire, don't let them
wash the dishes, it might kill the sink. It is a shame to be around bad luck.

--==Requirements==--

CANNOT HAVE LUCKY TRAIT

--==Usefulness==--

1/5

The only points are for comedic appeal, and that is all. Even I have to take
pity on those who are just down on their luck. In this game, however, things
cannot turn out for the better, so if they are unlucky at the start of their
life, they will die unlucky as their casket breaks as it is lowered into the
funeral plot.


************
*Vegetarian*
************

These are the people who love their rabbit food, they will refuse to eat
anything that has meat in it, and as such, they will have a lot of vegetarian
alternatives for their food. And to top it off, if they eat meat, they will
get violently ill and projectile vomit. That doesn't sound fun. 

--==Benefits==--

The only benefit is that being a vegetarian will help you love longer, but
hey, if you want to love longer without experiencing some truly wonderful
flavour, then go ahead and be my guest.

--==Disadvantages==--

They will react badly when they eat meat, they will get ill, and as a result,
they will earn the Nauseous moodlet, which isn't one that you will want to
have your Sim carrying around. Well, there is always Tofurkey. If anyone 
wants, look up the Everybody Loves Raymond clip of that. Always gives me a
laugh.

--==Unique Properties==--

Basically, without meat in their food, they will have a lot of substitutes 
for their food, and this means that a lot of meat dishes have a vegetarian
kick to it. Spaghetti will now contain a vegetarian sauce instead of the
lovely minced meat. The hot dogs will be replaced, there are no longer the
sausages, but tofu in it's place.

--==Usefulness==--

2.5/5

For the ultra health-conscious, this is for you. Sure, you'd live longer 
but I'd rather take a few years off my life span to ensure my diet doesn't
revolve around the world of suppliments. Anyway, it is a nice touch, to 
keep everyone happy. Though seriously, people don't get violently ill when
they, all of a sudden, touch the savoury goodness of meat. I feel like a 
burger right now. 


**********
*Virtuoso*
**********

The Beethovens and the Mozarts of the world, these guys are the Gods and 
the Goddesses of music. They will make the best musicians, and as such, they
excel in it. Do not try to outplay them on the guitar, for they will outdo
you. If there is one thing that irks me, it is the lack of instruments. 
Seriously, the guitar? Classical music never involves the guitar as the main,
it is all about the Piano. 

--==Benefits==--

These guys will naturally excel in the music career, which is a given. They
will also learn the guitar skill faster than other normal Sims, which is 
another given bonus. That means that their career is going to revolve around
music, which is another given. 

--==Disadvantages==--

There are no disadvantages, besides, how can free ear muffs be a disadvantage?

--==Unique Properties==--

These guys will always start off with a book that will teach them guitar in
their inventory, which is a nice touch. They will also have the habit, like
many other people in the real world, to sing in the shower, though how good
the voice is remains to be said. 

--==Usefulness==--

5/5

Only useful if you are planning to head into the music career path, however,
if you think about it, it is a great way to make money, since you can go to
the park and busk. Sure, it might not earn a lot, but it is doing something
that you love, and at the end of the day, that is the most important thing. 


************
*Workaholic*
************

Look on the bright side, at least you aren't drunk. Anyway, these guys are 
people who don't stop working, and when there is a lot of work, they don't
buckle under pressure. They love to work, they will have a lower mood when
they are not at work, which is the opposite of a lot of people. They can 
even work from home, making them good employees, and bad family members.

--==Benefits==--

These guys will be more likely to get a raise in their career, which is a 
nice bonus. And that means a lot more money. They will also get a moodlet
about liking work when they are at work, which is another added bonus, and
means that they can grind extra hard and get that promotion that they were
looking for. In children and teens, they will love fun doing their homework,
a trait which is not shared with any real children. Seriously, loving their
homework?

--==Disadvantages==--

They will suffer if they miss work, they will get the Missing Work moodlet.
Seriously, I would have thought that that would be a cause for celebration
than anything else, but hey, what floats their boat.

--==Unique Properties==--

They can always check in on how work is going with their phones, which is
rather sad. It is not like they are missing anything. They will also be
able to work at home, they will use the computer to work at home, which will
give a boost in job performance. Well, they do want that raise.

--==Usefulness==--

5/5

Sure, this means that they have no life whatsoever, but they do make good
employees, and as such, they will get that promotion before anyone else can
say peek-a-boo. Well, if you want the promotion, you can use this trait, but
for those who want their Sims to sort of have a life, steer clear.

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[2.04] Secret Traits

There are several secret traits that one can get, and these can only be 
obtained via breeding. Well, if you want it put nicely, there are traits, 
that are hidden, that a Sim can get from their parents, but it is their
parents who can influence this, other Sims cannot acquire these traits any
other way, except modding. 

--==Pyromaniac==--

Obtained by being the child of a Firefighter

This trait allows your Sim to set fire to anything that they want, which is
interesting, fire for all! They will also be able to set fire to fruit, 
creating the flame fruit, which they will like to eat. 


--==Immunity to Fire==--

Obtained by being the child of a Firefighter

Again, a firefighter trait, these guys make the ideal firefighters because
they cannot be burnt to death, much like the Daredevil trait. Though this
one is genetic.


--==Spotless==--

Obtained by being the child of a Maid

These people will always clean up after themselves, they will not make any
mess, and if there is mess around the house, they will clean it up. This is 
like the Neat Trait.


--==Sneak==--

Obtained by being the child of a Burglar

This allows the Sim to have the interaction to sneak wherever they want, as
they are now privy to the secret ways to sneak around the neighbourhood, just
like their parents.


--==Burglar Apprehension==--

Obtained by being the child of a Police Officer (or Sim in Law Enforcement)

These Sims will be able to take on burglars and fight them to protect their
family and their possessions without the need to wait for backup. Whether they
win the fight or not is a different story. This is like the Brave trait.


--==Salute==--

Obtained by being the child of a Sim in the Military

These Sims will have the option to salute other people, as if they were in the
military, which they do not have to. This is also unlocked to normal Sims who
are in the Military Career, though this action permanently stays, unlike that
for normal Sims.


--==Rocker==--

Obtained by being the child of a Sim in the Music Career

These guys will have a natural affinity for music, they will be more likely to
succeed in the music career than that of any other Sim, which is interesting 
as well, sort of like the Virtuoso trait.


--==Pizza Appreciator==--

Obtained by being the child of a Pizza Delivery Guy

These guys will love their pizza, and when they are eating their pizza, they
will get a positive moodlet associated with eating it. So eating pizza is 
more entertaining and fulfilling for them.

[3.01] Your Mood

The Sims 3 is different to both the Sims 1 and 2, in that two of the previous
8 mood bars have been removed, comfort and environment. Only Hunger, Energy,
Bladder, Hygiene, Social and Fun remain. 

These are the needs bar, these will always need to be fulfilled if you want
your Sims to be happy, and productive. If one of these go to critical stages,
your Sims will not be too happy and they will refuse to do some activities,
which will be witnessed when you try to make them do some interactions. 

Out of these, if hunger goes to zero, your Sim will die of starvation. The
rest, well, they will seek activities that will recoup their lost needs, but
that is about it. 

Hunger is basically refilled through food. Have a kitchen and have them cook
a meal. Normally, a cooked meal will completely fill the hunger bar, whilst
a snack, which is free, will refill about half the bar, at most. 

Energy is basically how refreshed your Sim is, and this is done with them 
having a good night's sleep in their comfy bed or a quick nap on the couch. 
If this zeroes out, the Sim will collapse and sleep where they land. 

Social is basically how much well, social interaction they have had. This 
is achieved by talking and interacting with other Sims, though some traits
have variation of this. Group activities and chatting online will also fill
this need. 

Fun is basically the amount of fun your Sim has had, and basically, this 
will determine a lot of their mood. This can be replenished through fun 
activities, like painting or just watching TV.

Bladder is, well, the amount of matter that your Sim needs to expel from
your body. Of course, this is done using the proper tools, which is, a 
toilet, and if it is zeroed out, they will basically take a pee on the 
floor, where they stand.

Finally, there is hygiene, and this is basically how clean your Sim is.
The lower the, the less clean they are, and at the low point, they will
get that green stench cloud. To refill this bar, give them a shower or a 
nice bath. 

That about covers the moods, but there are new things called moodlets. 
Basically, these contribute to your overall mood, because 6 complete 
needs bars won't get you an excellent mood, moodlets do. More in the next
section.

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[3.02] Positive Moodlets

Moodlets are basically positive and negative influences on your Sims mood.
Sure, they may be happy if they are not hungry, but if they just ate a great
delicious meal, then they will be in a happier mood. But if they can smell
their own stench, then they aren't going to be happy about it. As such,
moodlets are temporary boosts or reductions in a Sims mood, the size and the
duration of the boost will vary. 

This section will deal with positive moodlets, those that are going to have
a positive effect on your mood, but they are really just listed green in
the little moodlet box, which you can find next to the mood bar, if you 
bother to look, just use your manual for some added help. Below, I will list
all the possible positive moodlets, and where you can use them.

[4.01] What are Wishes?

"Starlight, starlight, first star I see tonight, I wish I may, I wish I might,
 I wish I may have this wish tonight."

This is, in essence, the new point system. For all the players of the Sims 2,
this replaces the Aspiration System. Basically, a wish is something that a 
Sim, well desires, a wish, as it were. Once a wish has been fulfilled, they
get a nice little moodlet for a few hours, which is always a nice bonus.

Now, there is another reason that you should complete the wishes of your
Sims, because by doing so, you will gain Lifetime Happiness points, the new
aspiration points. The more points you get, the more rewards you can choose,
in this case, they are perks. You will get access to perks that remove the
need to ues the toilet, or a perk that gives you a teleportation machine. 
By slowly building them up, you will get access to it, eventually. 

Now, the wishes are seperated into Lifetime Wishes and a normal Wish. The
Lifetime Wish is the single wish that your Sim wants to complete in their
lifetime, and they will only have a single one, so once you complete it, it 
is the end of that. The Lifetime wish that you will get is based on your
traits, for example, Natural Cook will lead to more culinary inclined wishes,
while Gardening will lead to more gardening traits, etc. 

The other type of wishes are your normal wishes. These are your everyday
wishes. However, this is different. You will have 4 slots that allow you to
"lock in" those wishes that you can select through the selection. These 
contribute rather little to happiness points, compared to the big bounty from
the large lifetime wishes, but they add up. 

Anyway, more on that in their respective sections, this was for the small
overview, now, for the indepth. It is how I approach this guide, it is a big
guide encompassing a lot of indepth guides. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[4.02] Lifetime Wishes

Lifetime Wishes don't offer anything special besides the large amount of 
Lifetime Happiness points that they offer. You can only complete one lifetime
wish per Sim, throughout their lifetime, so once it is done, it is done.

The reward of the Lifetime Wish varies, though the range of points is within
the barrier of 25,000 to 35,000 Lifetime Happiness points. I'll just list down
the lifetime wish and how you will be able to complete the wish.

everything faster, such as toilets, showers and dishes. Useful if you have
a large household.

compatable with you, to start off with a higher relationship than before. 
Good to build up a romantic relationship.


Bookshop Bargainer
Cost - 10000 Points

This effectively gets you much cheaper books at the Bookshop compared to
other Sims. This is quite useful, considering that recipes are learnt here
and they cost a fair bundle, as well as new music compositions and fishing
stuff.

Well, this is simple, you get to change your Lifetime Wish, which is rather
useful if you don't like the one you have been given.


Fertility Treatment

that point, it will increase the odds of having twins or even triplets. Sorry,
no octuplets in this game. Yet.

This is used for opportunities, this will double reward from all opportunities
in the game, which I'll list laster, and there are a hell of a lot of them.

Your bladder will never decay, it will always be full, so you do not have to
worry about your Sim rushing to the toilet half the time, that need has been
removed, for a small fee.


Dirt Defiant

This is sort of like the Steel Bladder trait, instead, you will now no longer
need to worry about the Hygiene Bar, the need to maintain that trait is now
removed. Whoosh!

before, which is exceptionally useful in the beginning to start off your
skill sets, for the quick advance in the job ladder.

that is lost because you have missed a day off work or just decided to slack

will get a higher quality, one grade higher than the plant that it is 
planted from. So you get to Perfect much faster.


Hardly Hungry
Cost - 25000 Points

Well, with this trait, you get hungry less often, so your hunger bar will
decay much slower than before, the decay is about 50% of what it used to be,
though I suspect that it may be less. 


Acclaimed Author
Cost - 30000 Points

This is interesting, it will increase the size of your royalty checks from
your writing, which means that per week, on the Sunday, you will be able to 
get more money for the same amount of work. 


Body Sculptor
Cost - 30000 Points

This is a wish that will allow you to change your body shape, which, in my
opinion, is quite useless, but hey, they are your virtual points to waste,
not mine.


Extra Creative
Cost - 30000 Points

This applies to your paintings, this is like the Acclaimed Author perk, but
instead of getting larger royalty checks, your paintings will be selling
for more money, which is always a good thing. More money is always good.

This is a little tool that you get in your inventory, and it allows you to

collectables. If you want gems, you can select gems, and on the neighbourhood
screen, they will appear as thumbnails, whilst on screen, they shine with a 
bright light. 


Food Replicator
Cost - 50000 Points

This is a machine that will copy a dish that you give it. So if you give the
machine a Perfect Meal, it will copy the meal as many times as you want, 
which is very, very useful, saves you the cooking, and the ingredients that
it will cost you. 


Mood Modifier
Cost - 60000 Points

This is another interesting machine, when you have your negative moodlets, 
such as being scared or such, and you need to wait for time to get rid of
them, using this machine will be able to get rid of them. It will be able
to get rid of the moodlets, most of the time. 


Teleportation Pad
Cost - 75000 Points

This is a one way machine, it will allow you to move from place to place
for free, though it may deviate a little bit from place to place, sometimes.

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[5.01] Skills

Skills are different this time around, there are now 10 skills, and they are
built differently. For those who have played previous games, you would know
that skills are only really useful for one thing, making and meeting the 
job requirements for your job. The same holds true in this game, but there 
is much more you can do for your skills, and some skills are harder to 
obtain, Charisma is one such skill. 

There are 10 skills in total, Athletic (replacing the old Body Skill), 
Charisma, Cooking, Gardening (A Hobby from The Sims 2 - Seasons), Fishing
(Another hobby from Seasons), Guitar (Broken from Creativity), Handiness 
(replaces Mechanical Skill), Logic, Painting (Broken from Creativity) and
Writing (Which replaces a Hobby from The Sims 2). 

Now, there are many more ways to learn skills in this game. Much more ways.

The first of such ways is taking classes. In the beginning, this will net
you a complete skill point, but later on, progress is slightly lower. 
These classes can be taken all over the community, I'll list their 
location later, but they can all be taken, but it will set you back at 
a fee of 400 Simoleons. 

Next is that nearly all skills have books that you can read to boost your
learning for it, however, they will normally cost you if you go to the 
bookstore and purchase them. They are, however, free of cost if you go to
the local Library, a new addition to the community.

Finally, the next common, non-skill specific way is to use public 
equipment. There are chess boards all over the place for logic, there is
a library for all skills, there are is a free gym for Athletic, free 
grills for cooking, plants to be harvested, fish to be caught, and so
on. 

Anyway, when you start off your Skills, you will start off with a Skill
Journal. This will document some interesting facts, as well as 
challenges that you can complete for a permanent bonus, that I'll go
into when I get to the skill. The Skill Journal will track your 
progress, like how many pages your Sim has wrote, and how many meals 
that your Sim has cooked, even how many perfect ingredients you have
harvested. But that is for your own leisure, lets start talking about
the skills, and the challenges that you can complete.

Note that some skills will get their own section, fishing, gardening and
cooking are important enough to warrant their own indepth section. Writing
and Painting will also get a section, the others don't really need one, as
of yet. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[5.02] Athletic

The Athletic skill is a far better sounding skill than the Body skill. Now,
Athletic skill is used for those who want to be fit, and as you trim down
the fat, you will gradually notice that your Sims will be getting athletic
skill points.

Now, how do you learn this skill? You can take classes at the Stadium for
the quick burst, and from there, you can gain points from the Gym, that you
can enter free of charge and open at all hours, work out machines that you
can purchase, jogging and working out with the Stereo or the TV, swimming 
and reading the athletic books. 

This skill isn't as important, but after you start to learn it, you will
get more and more options, offically called tones, when you are working out.
These tones will determine how fast you gain your athletic skill, and how
intense you decide to work out. 

There are two different workouts, Cardio and Strength. Strength will increase
the amount of brawn that your Sim will have, whilst Cardio will drop the 
amount of body fat that your Sim has, so make sure you get a nice balance
between the two.

At, as you level up, the only different between the levels is the amount
of time that your Sim can work out until they are fatigued and get the 
nasty moodlet. The higher the level, the more your Sim can tolerate and 
deal with the pain. Also, the higher the athletic skill, the better their
chances to win in a fight. Well, a big tough guy normally does win against 
the skinny, puny guy. Unless the puny guy manages to kick the big guy in
the nutsack, then it gets interesting. 

Anyway, at level 1, your Sim will have the ability to jog from place to 
place. This isn't all that bad, but it is slower than running, but increases
your athletic skill at the same time, as well as it being recorded in your
little skill journal.

At Level 3, you will be able to	get the Pumped moodlet from working out,
which is a nice moodlet. Though the downside is that they will need to
work out for a tee bit longer.

At Level 5, the improvement is that when you set them to move from location
to location, they will run a lot faster, if running is the best option, 
they will decide to take the car if it is faster.

Finally, at Level 6, your Sim will have the option to train other Sims 
with the exercise machines. This means that the Sim exercising will gain
their Athletic Skill faster as well as losing weight more, under the
expert guidance from a master. 


				--Tones--

Okay, the tones. These tones can only be used when you are working out. When
you are working out, if you have these tones, you will be able to use the
drop down bar and select what tone you want. You will always start with
the normal, do workout tone, which is just the normal workout, so lets go
into detail about the unlocked tones. 

Don't Break a Sweat is unlocked at Level 1. This will get you the same
amount of athletic skill points as the normal workout tone, however, this
will decrease the amount of hygiene decay that you will have. This is useful
if you don't want to lose too much hygiene early on, and with hygiene out
of the way, you can do longer workouts.

Good Pacing is unlocked at Level 3. This tone allows you to increase the 
amount of time you workout, with the usual amount of athletic skill gain as
well as the normal hygiene decay, but it will allow you to work out longer
until you get the Fatigued moodlet,

Push Self is unlocked at Level 5. This allows you to push yourself, but
this comes at a cost. The next day, the day after you wake up, you will get
the Sore moodlet for using Push Self, which can take time to heal. However,
this will increase the speed in which you gain your body skill and also
increase the rate in which you lose weight with normal decay. 

Quick Burst is the final tone unlocked at Level 7. This is where you will
work out extremely hard, sacrificing hygiene and energy, as well as getting
the Fatigue and Sore moodlet from working out. However, this will allow you
to gain skill at an incredible rate, so you will get sacrificing everything
to earn athletic skill at a fast rate. So pick your poison carefully.


			   --Skill Challenges--

There are 3 skill challenges that your Journal asks you to meet. If you do
do it, you will get a reward at the end, so think about the benefits of it.

Body Builder the the first of the challenges. You will need to do 60 hours
of strength workouts, which pretty much means 60 hours on the weights 
machine. This will lead to the ability to never get the fatigue moodlet after
working out on Strength Workouts.

Fitness Nut is the next of the challenges. This is like the previous 
challenge, instead, you need to have 75 hours of Cardio workout, which means
about 75 hours on the treadmill. This will net you the same reward, you
will no longer get the fatigued moodlet after a Cardio workout. 

Marathon Runner is the last of the challenges. For this, you will need to run
the fantastic amount of 500 Kilometres, before you can get this moodlet. As a 
conversion, it would be about 311 Miles. For completing this, it will grant
your Sim a longer life, as they are more fit. Interesting, run for life
expectancy.

And that about wraps up the Athletic skill. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[5.03] Charisma

Charisma has changed since the second game, instead of just straight skill
gain, you need family friends. Since they were removed from jobs, this is
where it is at, you need friends to advance in Charisma. This skill will be
useful for you when you are conversing with other Sims, the higher the 
skill, the better greeting, and thus, the better initial relationship will
be. 

You can acquire this skill in only three ways, which makes it one of the
most limiting skills. You can take a class in it, read about it in a nice
book, or just practice in front of a mirror. 

Now, what does this skill actually do. It will allow you to use new 
greetings when you see a Sim. What does that do? Well, these greetings will
increase the relationship a fair bit, and that makes it useful in itself, a 
nice start makes it easier to make friends. It will also unlock some nice
new socials to play with and for the Mooches out there, a higher Charisma
skill will enable you to leach more food and money.

Another boost that the Charisma skill will give you is that your tones at
work, which involve talking to co-workers and your boss, will be far more
effective, that is, you will be able to make friends out of your boss and
your co-workers a lot easier than before. 

Okay, the tough part is actually gaining this skill. In order to gain and 
succeed with this skill, you need to build up a stash of friends to gain
this skill. Below are the requirements in terms of friends needed for each
level.

Level 1  - 0  Friends
Level 2  - 2  Friends
Level 3  - 3  Friends
Level 4  - 4  Friends
Level 5  - 6  Friends
Level 6  - 8  Friends
Level 7  - 10 Friends
Level 8  - 15 Friends
Level 9  - 20 Friends
Level 10 - 25 Friends

However, note that all those friends cannot be family members, all friends
need to be, well, friends, there cannot be a family relationship between
two people to count as friends. 


			       --Greetings--

There are new greetings that you can use when you advance in skill. These
Greetings, like I have said, will increase the relationship more than a normal
greeting. The higher the skill, the better the greeting that you can use. Note
that these greetings will replace old greetings that are less effective. Also
note that you will start with the basic greetings at the lowest skill.

 Level   -   Name of Greeting    -  Type of Greeting

Level 1  - Friendly     Greeting - Friendly   Greeting
Level 2  - Amusing      Greeting - Funny      Greeting
Level 3  - Interesting  Greeting - Impressive Greeting
Level 4  - Flirty       Greeting - Romantic   Greeting
Level 5  - Affectionate Greeting - Romantic   Greeting
Level 6  - Funny        Greeting - Funny      Greeting
Level 7  - Impressive   Greeting - ?Impressive Greeting
Level 8  - Hilarious    Greeting - Funny      Greeting
Level 9  - Loving       Greeting - Romantic   Greeting
Level 10 - Hot          Greeting - Romantic   Greeting

The greeting table looks rather sloppy, I'd admit, but given the lack of 
formating tools on Notepad, compared to Excel, I really have my hands tied. 
Anyway, the better the greeting, the better the relationship boost that you
will get, and besides, you have to greet someone to talk to them anyway, so
you might as well give it a boost. 


			      --New Socials--

There are new social interactions as well. You will get three social 
interactions that you can use, and whilst you are able to unlock the socials
at different levels, the higher your Charisma skill, the more effective 
these social interactions are. 

The first social interaction is Charming Introduction, unlocked at Level 1.
What this does is give a nice introduction, and this will immediately give an
additional boost for a starting relationship. The higher your level, the 
stronger the greeting, and as such, by the time you reach Level 10, you will
get friend status straight away when you use this introduction.

The second social is Get to Know, unlocked at Level 3. This is used to 
discover all that you need to know about another Sim, their interests, their
status, their traits. This will make it easier for you to discover some
common interests. However, you still risk rejection at low friendships. By
Level 10, they will spill their guts, no matter what, so no rejeciton.

Finally, the last new social is Smooth Recovery, at Level 5. This is used
straight after a negative result from a social interaction, basically, you
said something you shouldn't have. This is used to recover that loss, and 
revive a dead conversation, so the higher your Level, the more effective your
recovery will be. By Level 10, it will be a perfect recovery. Always.


			   --Skill Challenges--

Time for the challenges. There are 5 challenges that you can complete, the
skill is diluted, but the reward is still the same. 

Celebrity is the first of your challenges, and if you are planning to max out
this skill, this is the easiest to complete. You need to have 25 Sims, those
not in your family, as your friends, basically, the same requirements as that
of getting the Level 10 Skill Level. This will allow you to start off with a
far stronger relationship than other Sims. 

Comedian is the next challenge. This will require you to tell a total of 100
successful jokes, and this is one of the easiest to complete. The reward is
that your jokes will hardly fail, though this is mooted if you have the Good
Sense of Humour trait.

Everybody's Best Friend is the third challenge. For this, you will need to 
have 10 Best Friends, which isn't all that hard, if you max out all your 
friendships and keep in touch. This is handy because when you will have 
friends, they will immediately skip the Good Friend level and move into Best
Friend, which is quite useful. 

Personable is the fourth challenge. To be personable, you will need to have
learn at least 50 different traits of your friends and other people in the
neighbourhood, basically, you need to learn all 5 traits of 10 different Sims,
and if you have a lot of friends, this isn't all that hard. This will give
you the ability to learn traits far more quickly than before when conversing
with other Sims.

Super Friendly is the final chellenge. This requires you to have at least
20 friends, but the reward for this is enormous. This will stop all friendship
decay, ALL DECAY, so you can never lose touch with your friend. Note that 
this is far superior than the Distant Friends perk.

And so that ends the Charisma skill. Two down, eight to go.

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[5.04] Cooking

Cooking is one of the most important skills in the game, and one that your
Sims will always seem to learn naturally. This will effect how you feed your
Sims, and is the home to many powerful moodlets. It is hard work to build up
your Cooking skill, but it is well worth it. Note that the way cooking works
from Sims 2 is different. There is no longer stock. You need seperate 
ingredients for cooking a dish, it is no longer universal. Seems fair, can't
make lobster from oranges. That always amused me. 

So how do you learn it? Well, cooking of course, gives a fair amount of the
work, but taking classes in cooking and reading the right cookbooks always
seems to help. And given the amount of food that your Sim needs to eat, it
won't be long before your Sim will be racking up those skill levels in order
to create some fantastic dishes. 

So what is the point of this skill. The better your cooking skill, the better
your dishes will become, and the more nourishing they will be, with a lower
chance of failure with each increasing level. Also, with each level, the
quality of the food will improve. 

There is a lot to talk about on food, it deserves it's own section, so much
that it will be the one right below this section, once I get around to putting
it in.

Anyway, what do you get at each level? You get new recipes. However, not all
recipes are obtained through skill progression, a fair amount need to be 
learnt through one-use recipe books that you can purchase from the bookstore.
I will list them in brief now, and go indepth in them later, such as the
ingredients that they require. 

Okay, for such a big topic, what I wrote is rather brief, but please bear in
mear in that I will expand on this later. Whenever later is. If you read 
this in a later version, it will be already there. But earlier versions, well,
please be patient.


			      --Recipe List--

Recipes Learnt from Skill Progression

These are recipes that are automatically learnt by the Sim when they reach
the level that is proscribed. 

Level 0  - Autumn Salad
Level 0  - Mac and Cheese
Level 0  - Waffles
Level 1  - Hot Dogs
Level 1  - Pancakes
Level 1  - Peanut Butter and Jelly
Level 2  - Goopy Carbonara
Level 2  - Grilled Cheese
Level 4  - Spaghetti
Level 4  - Sushi
Level 5  - Stu Surprise
Level 6  - Hamburgers
Level 7  - Key Lime Pie
Level 8  - Grilled Salmon
Level 9  - Dim Sum
Level 9  - French Toast
Level 10 - Lobster Thermador

Recipes Learnt from Recipe Books

Note that the level listed is the level needed to understand the book. You 
need to be of a certain skill level to understand the book, which is rather
unusual, but I guess you cannot expect a beginner to bake a Baked Angel Food
Cake.

Level 1  - Ratatouillie
Level 3  - Cookies
Level 3  - Fish and Chips
Level 4  - Fruit Parfait
Level 5  - Cheesesteak
Level 6  - Cobbler
Level 7  - Eggs Machiavellian
Level 8  - Tri-Tip Steak
Level 9  - Stuffed Turkey
Level 10 - Ambrosia
Level 10 - Baked Angel Food Cake


			   --Skill Challenges--

There are also skill challenges for cooking, but it is scaled back to three, 
which makes things a bit easier on you. However, given that this is concerning
food, consider them quite powerful rewards.

Menu Maven is the first of your challenges, and one that will take a while to
achieve. This requires you to have prepare all the recipes possible, so you
will need to be at cooking level 10, learn all the recipes, prepare all the
recipes, including the powerful Ambrosia, and your reward is that all your 
food that you now prepare are of a much higher quality. 

Star Chef is the second of your challenges. This requires you to prepare at 
least 50 meals, there are no limitations on what you can produce, you can make
50 plates of waffles for all I care. Again, the reward for this is that your
food is of a higher quality, and higher quality food means much more powerful
moodlets.

World Class Chef is the final challenge. This requires you to prepare 75 
dishes, again, there are no restrictions on what you can prepare, so 75 dishes
of Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches coming right up. Anyway, this provides a
different reward, this will allow you to cook your fishes a bit faster. 

And that wraps up the cooking skill, for now, until I get around to the 
indepth section.

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[5.05] Fishing

This is yet another skill that I will go indepth later, mainly because of
the tables that I will need to draw up and there is no need to clutter this
section. Anyway, fishing is basically that, you will need to learn how to
fish, and the better your level, the more you can cook. Now the reason why
this is useful is because it is a good source of money, and also ingredients
for your cooking dishes. 

How do you obtain this skill. Again, there are only three ways, you can 
either take a class from the Supermarket, read the fishing books or you can
just go fishing yourself. Not exactly a large variety of ways to learn, but
it does the job.

Now, fishing. Well, basically, a pool of water is a place you can fish, of
course, the best place to fish are places where there is fish jumping out
of the water, because there is a higher chance of a catch. Keep in mind
that some Sims will be able to fish in swimming pools, which is always a 
nice touch. 

If you have the money, you can purchase a fair amount of books at the 
bookstore, and this is done for a reason. The reason you read those books is
that it will give you the locations of where you can catch a fish, which is
a nice start, and more importantly, the perferred bait of each fish. Talk
about bait is in the paragraph below this next one. 

What happens as you level up with this skill? Well, the higher your level, the
more fish you can type. Some fish you cannot catch until you are at much 
higher levels. Also, the higher the level, the better quality fish you can
catch, you can't exactly catch perfect fish at Level 1, but it will be more
common at Level 10. 

When you reach LEVEL 3, you will be able to bait fish out of the sea. What
is bait? Well, bait basically means a type of food or fish that you can 
use, and lose upon successful catch of a fish, but it will increase the
chance of catching the fish that the bait is selected for. More in it's
specific section. The better quality of bait, the better quality of fish that
you are going to catch. I hope you have a large garden. 

Also, as you level up, you will be able to inspect the water of any place
that you can fish, and this will identify all the available fish in that
water that you can catch. This is useful if you are looking for a certain
type of fish.

Well, that is about as indepth as I would like to go for skills, given that
I am going to dedicate a section for this.

			   --Skill Challenges--

However, I am not going to forget about the challenges, but this time, there
are only two challenges for you.

Amateur Ichthyologist is the first of the challenges, and it is a rather
funny sounding one, which makes it interesting. This requires you to have 
caught every single type of fish, EVERY SINGLE TYPE OF FISH. That includes
the rare as hen's teeth, Deathfish. For such a feat, you will be rewarded
that all the fish you now catch will be bigger, fatter, and tastier. 

Commercial Fisherman is the second and last of the challenges. This requires
you to have caught at least 350 fish, which is quite a lot, but given that
time flies, you will be able to achieve this in no time. If you fish regularly
that is. For this, you will be able to catch fish faster than other Sims,
which means that you can catch more fish.

And that wraps up fishing, for now. Tune in next time, for more TALES. OF.
INTEREST. I mean fishing. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[5.06] Gardening

Gardening is one of the new skills, and basically, this is one of the money
making skills. This is another skiill that I will go indepth later, mainly
because it is a very large section. Anyway, this skill is necessary for
tending and harvesting the produce of plants, and this has two uses, one is
for making a fair amount of money, and the latter is to have fresh
ingredients for your cooking. 

This skill is obtained in three ways, the standard reading books and taking
classes method, and the final method is actually going out into the field
and working and tending your plants. Tending, watering, harvesting, all those
activities will increase your skill in gardening.

Now, what is the whole point of gardening? Well, gardening is basically 
looking and fielding plants, and by doing this, you can make those plants
grow up nice and strong, and you move on to harvest the produce, and make
money out if it.

More about growing plants and harvesting in their respective section, so when
that is ready, you can read that to make this following part about level
development make a bit more sense. 

Anyway, you start off at Level 0, and your gardening skills are a bit 
restrictive to say the least. By Level 2, you will be able to tend to a 
garden, so you can water, and now, remove the weeds surrounding the plant.
Weeds need to be removed for the sole reason that they will damage the plant's
quality. The higher your level from now on, the faster your Sim will be able
to tend those plants. 

Once you reach Level 3, you will have the ability to fertilise the plants. 
This skill is important, as fertilizer will improve the quality of your
produce, and that is useful as it will increase the quality of the meals that
use your ingredients and it increases the value when you are selling them. 
However, bear in mind that quality of the fertilizer will determine how much
the plant's quality is improved.

By Level 5, you will notice that when you walk around the neighbourhood, you
will have seen common, uncommon and rare seeds. By Level 5, you will be able
to plant uncommon seeds, in addition to common seeds that you have already 
been able to plant since Level 0. 

At Level 6, if your Sims have the Green Thumb trait, they will be able to 
revive a plant, which means that you will be able to revive a plant that has
died through neglect or some other means. Barren plants will not be able
to be revived. With this, you will have a good chance to revive the dying or
ailing plant. 

By Level 7, you will be able to plant those rare seeds, and this means that
those nice lovely plants that you have no idea about can now be grown.

And finally, the last 3 levels. At this point, you will get opportunities,
one for each level, about growing a specific number of harvestables with a 
certain quality. By completing these opportunities, you will get access to
new plants. You will be able to grow plants that spawn eggs, cheese, steak, 
and finally, the Omni Plant, though this will get it's own section. 

So that is about it for developmental skills, so on to the challenges. Yes, I
do know that this is a bit brief, but like I said, this deserves it's own
section. 


			   --Skill Challenges--

There are three challenges that you can perform. Of course, given the nature
of this skill, it will take some time to perfect, but you'll get there, 
eventually.

Botanical Boss is the first of the challenges, and this requires you to grow
75 perfect harvestables, there are no requirements on what needs to be 
grown. However, for doing this, you will get the power that none of your
plants will ever die from neglect, such as not tending them or not watering
them. 

Master Farmer is the next of the challenges. To complete this challenge, you
will need to harvest a total of 650 harvestables, which, when you think about
it, isn't actually a lot. By completing this, you will have your plants 
watered and deweeded for longer, that means, less work.

Master Planter is the final of the challenges. This will require you to plant
every single type of plant, every single one. This isn't all that easy, but
it isn't impossible. Once you have completed planting all of the different 
types of plants, your plants will suffer significantly less weed growth. Which
is again, quite useful. 

And that wraps up Gardening, for now. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[5.07] Guitar

This is one of the worst skills, because there isn't much in terms of usage.
Basically, imagine just the piano playing skill, and yeah, there isn't much,
but it is relatively important if you are planning to go into the Music
career, so pick your poison carefully.

Again, this skill is developed in a set amount of ways, there is always the
books and classes approach, though it doesn't get you very far, or you can
just practice on the guitar. It isn't much in terms of development, but it is
similar to other skills.

Well, the whole aim of this is getting new songs to play with. As you develop
your skills, you get more and more songs that your Sim can perform, and by
Level 5, you can perform songs for tips whilst performing in public. This is
a quick way to make money, but it is still short change.

Anyway, through skill development, you will learn new songs. This is quite
useful, as the more songs you can play, the more variety you can provide to
passerbys, and try to hit their favourite music. From Level 1 to 4, you will
gain two new compositions, that is, songs, through development.

Level 5 is special, you will get 3 new songs, and from that point on, Level 6
to 10, you will get only 1 new song per level, but there are new compositions
that you can purchase from the bookstore, which effectively makes it two per
level.

Level 5 is the most important part of this skill, because it is also the 
point in which you can perform to the public. Previously, you can only 
practice, but now you can play in public. Shove that guitar into your Sim's
inventory and you can play it. This is where you can make up that 600 Simoleon
purchase price. Try public areas, such as the main park, for the most 
pedestrian traffic.

Also at Level 5, you will be able to serenade someone. Literally, this is 
like flirting with someone, but through song. Basically, it serves as a 
romantic social interaction that will aid you in your romantic overtures at
the song's conclusion. 


			   --Skill Challenges--

Guitar only has three challenges, which isn't a hell of a lot, but it is 
better than nothing, I guess. Anyway, without further ado. 

Guitar Star is the first of the of the two challenges, and basically, your
Sim needs to perform at a total of 10 parties. With this, you will be able
to get more money from tips and such performances. Which means some more
spare change for you.

Master Guitarist is the next of the challenges that you will face. This is
where you learn every single composition, from levelling up, the compositions
that you can purchase from the store and compositions that can be learnt
through opportunities that you will get from time to time. As a reward, you
receive a new song. Which kinda defeats the purchase. 

Money Maker is the final challenge that you can pick on. This requires you to
earn a total of 5,000 Simoleons from all your performances, which is quite a 
lot, considering all you get is spare change, but after a long amount of
performances and time at parties, you will start to rack up the money. For 
this, your reward is that you get another new master track to play with.

And that wraps up the Guitar Skill. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[5.08] Handiness

This is the skill that replaces the Mechanical skill, and this actually has
some uses, yuo can use this to play with some equipment. You can basically
tinker with equipment, and repair broken items, and after a while, you will
be able to upgrade your equipment to make them work better.

There are a fair amount of ways to boost this skill, besides the obvious 
class and book method. You can repair broken items for some more knowledge 
on the Handiness skill, or tinker with them, or you can just upgrade the 
items and see how it goes. 

Basically developmental benefits through this skill is quite useful if you
are the handiman around the house. The higher your skill, the better your
chance of success in tinkering and upgrading, as well as repairing, and the
lower the chances of failure. Note that the Handiness trait, you will always
succeed.

By Level 3, you will be able to upgrade your equipment, again, I will put a
list in a seciton of it's own, mainly because it needs a proper table, and
I cannot provide one here and make it all neat and tidy. However, these
upgrades are quite powerful and useful. For example, you can make a cheap
dishwasher silent, or improve the stove to make better quality food, or 
even improve your TV to have more channels to watch. 

There are more upgrades, but again, I will give it a section for that, as to
go indepth. Finally, at Level 10, you will be able to get a nice bonus. You
will be invited by a guild and you will get a permanent 25% discount to all
items that you can purchase off the buy catalog. 

Quite short, the above section, because the upgrading section needs a fair
bit of space.

			   --Skill Challenges--

There are the standard three skill challenges with this skill. Not a lot, but
better than nothing.

Electrician is the first of the challenges, and have a guess, you need to 
play with some electricity. You will need to repair 10 electricial objects,
which, over the course of a few days, doesn't mean quite a lot because they
will suffer heavy usage. The reward is simple, you will never be electrocuted
again, ever again.

Plumber is the second of the three challenges, and as you can guess, you
need to play with water. You need to successfully repair 10 plumbing items,
and this is quite easy, it is usually a shower, bath or toilet, and you use
those constantly. Your reward is that these items will never break again.

Tinkerer is the last of the three challenges, and this requires you to tinker
around with objects. You need to have installed at least 10 different, unique
upgrades on objects around the house. Use the table found later on in the
Upgrading section for more information. As a result, you will never fail at
upgrading objects. 

And that is it, for now. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[5.09] Logic

Logic is one of the few skills that hasn't undergone a total review, which is
a nice touch. However, there is a lot more you can do with this skill, it 
isn't just chess playing, there is a lot more than that. This is the general
intelligence skill, and is used for tutoring other Sims, for discovering new
celestial bodies.

Logic is one of the skills that has more than 3 development options. Sure, 
there is the traditional class and book approach, but you can also learn this
skill from the Chessboard, using the telescope, or being tutored by other 
Sims. The Computer is a new source of learning, considering you can play chess
on the computer now, and gain logic at the same time.

Logic is one of the skills that has a massive developmental cycle. The effects
are immediate, your Sim can start to solve the unsolvable, basically, you are
solving hard mathematical problems for money, it isn't always a success, but 
the money is good. 

By Level 3, your Sim is able to search the stars for previously unknown 
celestial bodies. Of course, there is money involved, and the best part is 
that you can name discovery after what you want. Be creative. Doesn't 
every kid want to see the Steaming Pile of Poop star? Of course, the cheapest
are satellites, they aren't worth the most. Next are small stars, followed
by new planets, and finally, the large stars, which are worth the most. It is
all random, but that is the pattern in which they are valued. And to make sure
it is offical, they are logged into your journal.

At Level 5, your Sim will be able to tutor other Sims in the logic skills, 
However, you can only tutor young Sims at this stage, children and teens, for
now. This is quite useful, giving a nice powerful moodlet as well as it helps
the child's school performance and develops their logic skill faster than 
usual. 

Also at Level 5, you will be able to talk about Sims about celestial bodies 
that they have discovered. What is more important, other than a topic of
conversation and a nice relationship boost is that if you talk about the
celestial body named after them, well, you get a massive boost. Hey, I would
like to tell other people about a new star I discovered and named after them,
and they would be happy.

Finally, at Level 10, you will be able to improve your tutoring skills, you
will be able to tutor anyone, in basically everything, all skills, bar the
Athletic and Charisma skill. However, there is a limitation, Sims cannot 
tutor beyond their own skill level, that is, if a Sim has Level 7 in Cooking,
that Sim cannot tutor another Sim beyond that Level 7 in Cooking. This is 
useful for developing the skills of younger Sims. This beats learning through
the books, but is slower than learning through actual practice. 

However, there is a skill within a skill. There is a chess skill, and although
logic is a strong factor in how the game plays, the more you practice chess,
the better you will get. The more you practice, the more games you win, so
this is the way you beat a Grand Master in chess. Sure, Level 10 in logic 
outranks a Level 9, but he/she has practiced for a long time, you have not. 


			   --Skill Challenges--

There is quite a fair amount of challenges here, well, four, but it is more
than the standard of 3 that you normally get. 

Celestial Explorer is the first of the challenges, and this requires you to 
discover 20 new objects through your telescope, be it stars, satellites or
new planets. As a result, you will be able to talk about the stars and the
sky to other Sims, compared to the Level 5 perk of just talking about things 
you have discovered.

Grand Master is the second of the four challenges, and you need to reach the
last level of Chess, and this is done by just beating all the ranked opponents
in your path. Once you get to this level, you will be able to gain your 
skill in logic, and as a result, chess, at double the usual rate, which is
exceptionally useful. 

Skill Professor is a challenge in which you need to spend at least 30 hours
tutoring other Sims, whatever the age and whatever the skill, there are 
no specifications. Once they are effectively a professorhead in their own
regards, their teaching will be twice as effective, that is, the student will
learn the skill twice as quickly.

Teacher Extraordinaire is the last of the challenges, and it is the weaker
brother of Skill Professor, in which you will only need to spend 20 hours in
tutoring other Sims, but again, you will only be twice as effeective. Which
makes the skill professor 4 times as effective. Effective? 

And that wraps up the Logic skill, 8 down, 2 to go. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[5.10] Painting

This used to be a skill within a skill. Previously, painting was a skill that,
the more you practiced, the more money you get, however, it was considered an
activity under the Creativity skill. Since that has gone to dirt, this gets
it's very own skill, which is fun. 

This is a strange skill, there are only two ways to earn this skill, through
the usual classes and the obviously, painting on the easel. This is quite
easy to handle. 

This skill is all about practice, and more practice. The more you practice, 
the better you'll be, and the more money that you will make. You will only
be able to practice early on, and by reaching Level 1, you will already be
making your mark by choosing from three different types of canvas, small,
medium or large. 

By Level 5, they will be able to paint, rather than practice, but it is all
semantics, it really doesn't mean anything. Level 6 is where things get a 
little more interesting, you will haev the chance to paint a Brillant 
painting, and this is just a usual painting, but it is Brillant. Besides the
environmental benefit that it will give, it is also worth double the normal
value.

Level 9 is where it turns even better, with your Sims given the chance to 
paint a Masterpiece. This gives out an even stronger environmental boost
if you have the chance to mount it, or you can sell it, and it will be 
triple the usual value.

Just as an interesting side note, if the painter dies, all their paintings
will be worth more, since demand and supply would suggest that there is now
only a finite about of dead person's works, so supply is limited. 

Also, there is another set of developmental skills. At Level 5, you will be
able to paint a Still Life painting, which is a painting of a photo that you
will have to choose. Level 7 will allow you to paint a portrait of a Sim,
which requires two people. After all, you cannot paint thin air. Finally, at
Level 8, you can paint a memorized scene, which means you take a photo of a 
place around the neighbourhood with the mobile phone, and paint that. 

			   --Skill Challenges--

There are only three skill challenges for this, which isn't exactly a lot, but
again, better than nothing.

Brushmaster is the first of the challenges. This requires you to have painted
a total of 35 paintings, and the reward for this is that your Sim will be able
to paint a lot faster than before. Useful for pumping out those paintings. 

Master Painter is the next of the challenges, and this requires you to have 
painted 5 Masterpieces. This is quite hard to do, but with the below challenge
complete, it may be a bit easier. For a reward, from now on, every painting 
you sell will be worth a lot more than usual, that is, you make more money for 
the same amount of effort. 

Proficient Painter is the final challenges, and as you can guess, you need to 
have painted 6 Brillant paintings, nothing less. This requires a hell of a lot
of luck, so good luck painting that. However, the reward is a useful one for a
painter, you will be able to paint more Brillant and Masterpiece paintings, 
that is, a higher chance to do so. 

Finally, that wraps up 9 of the 10 skills, one more to go. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[5.11] Writing

The final skill, and this game as turn what was a hidden skill in novel 
writing into a much bigger skill. Again, this will be another skill that will
get it's own section, given the scope, and is another non-offical way to make 
money. 

There are only three real ways to learn about writing, and that is to either
take a class or read the book, as usual, or you can go and practice writing
on the computer. Note that all writing needs to be done on the computer, 
as it stands, you cannot make a typewriter and do some writing, because it
doesn't have spell check. 

Anyway, the developmental effects of writing, well, this will overlap the
indepth section, but anyway, by increasing your level, you will gain access
to more novel genres, and whilst they take longer to write, you get more in
royalties. More on that later. 

At the start, you will have access to Fiction books, but from there, it will
start to get bigger, as in genres.

Level 0  - Fiction
Level 0  - Non-Fiction
Level 1  - Science Fiction
Level 2  - Trashy
Level 3  - Drama
Level 3  - Children's Book (Painting Skill >/= Level 6)
Level 5  - Humour (Good Sense of Humour = Level 2)
Level 6  - Historical
Level 8  - Mystery
Level 10 - Masterpiece
Level 10 - Romance (Hopeless Romantics = Level 5)

There are in fact, more genres, so here are they. 

Autobiography - You need to write 3 Biographies
Fantasy       - You need to write 3 Science Fiction Novels
Satire        - You need to write 3 Humour novels
Vaudeville    - You need to write 2 Drama, Science Fiction, Humour, Mystery
                and Romance Novels. 

			   --Skill Challenges--

Again, there are only three here that you can do, so it is nothing unusual. 

Prolific Writer is a challenge that requires a Sim to write at least 20 
novels in their careers. This is quite useful if you are looking for money
because these guys will be more recognised and as such, they will tend to 
produce more Hits and Best-Seller books, and this leads to more in royalties.

Specialist Writer is the next challenge, and this requires your Sims to write
5 novels in a specific genre, any genre. As a result, they are well recognised
in their own genre, and they will make more hits and best-sellers, however, it
is only effective in their favourite genre.

Speed Writer is the final challenge, out of all the skills and for me writing,
and requires you to have earnt a total of 15,000 Simoleons in royalties, which
isn't a hell of a lot if this is a full time career, maybe a bit longer if it
is a part time career. As you can guess, the reward is that your Sims will 
write a lot faster. Exceptionally handy if they are looking at doing the 
romance novels. 

And that, ladies and gentlemen, wraps up the skills. In brief. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[6.01] Overview

There are 11 professional jobs available to you this time, compared to the
amount of careers, only 10, which comes in both the Sims 1 and the Sims 2. 
This is exactly the same, except the presentation is a bit different. Also,
there are part time jobs, which you can have on top of a full time jobs, but
more on that later.

Again, only adults and now, elders, will be able to have full time jobs, and
this is a lot more interesting. Several careers will have branches, which
means, your career will come to a split path, and you need to choose which
path your Sim wants to walk on. This means that there is more than the usual
110 jobs that you were expecting. However, once you reach elder status, you
can retire from your job and receive a pension. Whilst the money isn't exactly
good, you don't need to work and get paid. Up to you, really. 

Also, as you level up, there are rewards for reaching certain levels in your
career. This is most useful, since there are some nice rewards that you cannot
obtain in any other method, like a police cruiser. 

Another change is that there are work tones. That is, there are options that
you can select for your Sim to perform during work, which dictates what they
do. For example, you can have your Sim work out exceptionally hard, or just
slack off or talk to their co-workers. All jobs with a normal effect tone,
where you get average decay, for average job performance growth.

Okay, about the jobs themselves, there is a job performance bar. However, 
unlike previous games, this actually has a use. The Performance bar will show
your overall performance since you started the job or since your last 
promotion. If it is green, good work, if it is red, you will stand to have
a pay cut or a demotion. 

Now, to be promoted by the game automatically, you will need to complete, as
in, all green, the performance bar, and that will get you promoted. Along 
the way, you can demand a raise at work, by clicking on your work place and
demanding a raise. This means that you get more money at the end of the day,
nothing else. Raises will replace promotions when you get to the top of the
ladder, giving more incentive to stay in one career, rather than several.

Some changes from previous games. There are no skill limits to promotion, 
instead, you will have several items that will affect job performance. The
better it is completed, the faster you gain job performance. For example, when
it says that logic is a factor in your job performance, it means the more 
logic points you have, the better. You will have a tutorial in game for this,
so don't fret. 

And finally, gone are the chance cards, and in comes the opportunities. You
will have the chance to complete some tasks for work, outside of work, and
you will get a reward for it, a seciton for that later. And back from the Sims
1 is the idea of job transfer. Sometimes, your Sim gets the opportunity to 
transfer to other careers. For example, a Lieutenant in the Law Enforcement
Career might get the offer to join the Military, and so forth.

Without further delay, let us start on the new careers. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[6.02] Business

The Business career takes place in the Corporate Towers, and is your typical
office job. Basically, go to the office, do some work, and go home. This is
one of the best paying jobs for the least amount of skills, given that you
don't need any skills to succeed here. Not even Charisma. 

There are 5 Work Tones for this skill. 

Hold Meetings - Division Mananger Level or greater. This is where you plan 
                for meetings, and when you will attend them, which gives you
                the opportunity to attend meetings, but slows performance 
                growth.

Meet Co-Worker - This allows you to meet your co-workers and talk with them,
                 building up a relationship with your co-workers, and this is
                 quite important in this career. This is used to meet more 
                 co-workers quickly, not so much relationships.

Chat at Water Cooler - This is where you will build up a relationship with 
                       your co-workers. This is more effective at building 
                       a relationship than the previous tone, but less 
                       effective at taking with them.

Suck Up to Boss - This is where you build up a relationship with the boss, 
                  though redundant from Chief of Board and onwards. This is
                  a useful way to build a new friendship. 

Power Work - Basically, you work a lot harder, and this gains job 
             performance a hell of a lot faster, however, this will degrade
             your mood a lot faster, especially fun. 

First, a quick note about meetings. Meetings are important because they are
a factor of promotion. The more meetings you have, the better your job
performance. The best is to have work hours used in meetings. You can hold
meetings whilst at work, so you can make the best of both worlds and get 
paid for this. Anyway, lets start on the stats. 

Note that the pay is standard. This is the basic pay, this is not taking into
account raises that you may have received from work. 

--==Coffee Courier==--

"Nobody ever looks to the Coffee Courier to orchestrate a multi-billion

The pay may seem exceptionally low, but the real kicker is in the meetings.
They are normally one and a half hours long, you can hold them whenver you
feel like, as if there were meetings all day long, and most importantly, you
get paid for it, 750 Simoleons per meeting, on average, and that is a lot of
money for that amount of time. Though it all depends on when you want to do
the meetings, you don't have to attend, if you don't want to.

[6.03] Criminal 

Ah, the Criminal career, one of the careers that survived the cut. However,
it has undergone a nice overhaul, seeing it is one with exceptionally 
powerful perks. For one, seeing as you are a Criminal, you will be exempt
from being robbed. So no criminals will decide to pick on your house for a 
quick robbery. Also, whatever the level, your Sim will have the chance to 
bring home random items from work, so it is a nice source of side money.
However, what has perks also has disadvantages. You will have a chance to end
up arrested, seeing as you are breaking the law, and you will end up in prison
for a day. At least you can work out for your stay in prison. 

There are 7 Work Tones that you can choose from. 

Work Hard - This tone, as you can easily assume, means that your Sim works
            harder at work, gaining more in terms of job performance but will
            take a massive hit on needs decay, especially the Fun meter.

Take It Easy - This is the exact opposite to the one above, this is where your
               Sim takes it less seriously, and will gain less job performance
               for a lower hit on Fun. This is best used when you already have
               a complete performance bar, or nearly there.

Practice Illicit Activities - Requires Level 1+ of Athletic Skill. This is 
                              where you basically practice the athletic skill
                              at work, and you gain athletic skill points, but
                              at a slower rate. But at least you get paid.

Meet Accomplices - This is basically talking to your co-workers, the people
                   who will be assisting you on your raids and criminal
                   activities. This is necessary to find out who your 
                   co-workers are, but not good at building relationships.

Conspire with Accomplices - This is the opposite to the one above, this is
                            less effective at meeting your co-workers but it
                            is better to build a relationship with them.

Do a Side Job - This is a tone where you have the opportunity to earn some
                Simoleons on the side. The cash isn't a lot, but it is a nice
                way to earn some cash whilst being paid on the job. Not too
                bad. 

Grovel to Leader - Evil Branch. This is where you go down and kiss your 
                   leader's feet, and grovel for his favour. This is only
                   necessary in the Evil branch, thieves work by themselves.

And lets get onto the Criminal Career jobs.

[6.04] Culinary

One of the new careers introduced in the Sims 2 and survive the cut to make
it into this game. This is the career for those interested in cooking, and
what makes this interesting is that there are two places where you can work
for this job, you can work at the Bistro or you can work at the Diner. This
is not a high paying career, but this makes it one of the most useful support
careers, seeing that cooking is home to many powerful moodlets and the 
reward for reaching Level 10 is not to be scoffed at. 

There are 6 Work Tones that you can choose from whilst at work.

Work Hard - Again, this is where your Sim works hard at work, increasing the
            rate in which job performance is gained, but it also increases the
            rate in which your mood decays, especially Fun.

Take It Easy - Like before, it is the exact opposite to the one above, it is
               where your Sim takes it easy, sometimes gaining fun, but at the
               cost of which your job performance, which will suffer and 
               increase at a much slower rate.

Practice Cooking - This is what the tone says, you will practice your cooking
                   skill whilst at work, gaining cooking skill whilst being 
                   paid for it, and isn't a half bad tone, given that you will
                   need a high cooking skill to succeed in this career path.

Meet Co-Workers - This tone is used for you to quickly find out who your co-
                  workers are. This isn't useful for building a relationship,
                  but useful for figuring out who to talk to out of work.

Hang with Co-Workers - Like the other before it, this is less effective at
                       finding out who they, your co-workers are, but it is
                       useful to build up a relationship with them. 

Suck Up to Boss - This is needed in this career, because it isn't just skill
                  alone that takes you ahead, but it is who you know, and
                  if your boss thinks you are ready or not to progress. 

And without further ado, let us get into the 10 jobs, no career branching
in this career. In fact, there are only 3 career pathes with branches, not a
lot. 

--==Kitchen Scullion==--

"The life of a Kitchen Scullion is fraught with orders from snooty chefs in
 the midst of flame-filled kitchens. A little cooking knowledge, not to 
 mention a warm attitude in the presence of cold patrons, will do wonders
 for you as an aspiring chef."

 dish that is your career."

This is the level that you start to get some of the perks. There are a lot
of perks in this job. You will sometimes get a dish to take home, it will be
a group meal. Sure, it may not be of the best quality, but it is a free meal,
so check your inventory carefully. This perk applies from this level onwards,
so you will get free meals from now.


--==Line Cook==--

"Meals are finally being put squarely in your hopefully capable hands. As a
 Line Cook, you're tasked with a dish from start to finish, and there's
 nobody to blame for bad peas ... but you! The heat of the kitchen has never
 been hotter and it's a recipe for disaster if you aren't careful."

At this level, you will get a food processor for your kitchen, it isn't
anything special, it is something you can get from the buy catalog, but
it is something for free, and you can't reject something for nothing, right?


--==Sous Chef==--

"As a Sous Chef, you must step back from the intriguing flavours and tackle
 the sour issues of kitchen management. The orders now come from up top and
 customers waiting for their meal, so satisfy all, or go home hungry and

 As a celebrity Five-Star Chef, you are the face of the restaurant. People

This is the final level, and it's time for another perk. This time, you
get a Master Fridge, and this is one hell of a fridge. First of all, you will
get a MinusOne Kelvin Fridge, which will give you a Superior Equipment moodlet
when you walk past it. It will also keep all the food fresh, never decay in
terms of quality, and most importantly, improve the quality of your dishes.

[6.05] Journalism

This is a new career, a brand new career, and surprisingly, it is a career
that is quite popular, it is more popular and practical than the Slacker
career, lets be honest. Anyway, this is a new career, there are new 
requirements. You need good Charisma and more importantly, Writing skills to
succeed in this career, which makes it hard career to succeed in. There isn't
much in terms of money, compared to other careers, but the hours are good
and short. However, you will need to write a lot of reviews and stories about
things around town, more on that when you need to start writing them. 

There are again, 6 work tones that you can do in this career path, and to 
avoid giving my fingers boneitus, I'm going to do some copying and pasting. 

Work Hard - Again, this is where your Sim works hard at work, increasing the
            rate in which job performance is gained, but it also increases the
            rate in which your mood decays, especially Fun.

Take It Easy - Like before, it is the exact opposite to the one above, it is
               where your Sim takes it easy, sometimes gaining fun, but at the
               cost of which your job performance, which will suffer and 
               increase at a much slower rate.

Practice Writing - This is what the tone says, you will practice your writing
                   skill whilst at work, gaining writing skill whilst being 
                   paid for it, and isn't a half bad tone, given that you will
                   need a high writing skill to succeed in this career path.
                   What is good about this path is that writing has hardly any
                   skill progression for writing. 

Discuss Latest News - This tone is used for you to quickly find out who your 
                      co-workers are. This isn't useful for building a 
                      relationship, but useful for figuring out who to talk to
                      out of work.

Hang with Co-Workers - Like the other before it, this is less effective at
                       finding out who they, your co-workers are, but it is
                       useful to build up a relationship with them. 

Suck Up to Boss - This is needed in this career, because it isn't just skill
                  alone that takes you ahead, but it is who you know, and
                  if your boss thinks you are ready or not to progress.

[6.06] Law Enforcement

Law Enforcement is the most venerable career, keeping robbers at bay and 
making sure that all the citizens sleep safe at night. The most interesting
thing about this career is the career branch, there are more jobs that you can
get being a police officer, but sorry, no more Captain Hero and no more of
that outrageous suits. The wages are okay, the hours are okay, a nice stable
job. At least you don't get shot. 

There are 6 Work Tones that you can use, a little copypasta from myself to 
save some work. 

Work Hard - Again, this is where your Sim works hard at work, increasing the
            rate in which job performance is gained, but it also increases the
            rate in which your mood decays, especially Fun.

               where your Sim takes it easy, sometimes gaining fun, but at the
               cost of which your job performance, which will suffer and 
               increase at a much slower rate.

Chat with Partner - You only have one co-worker, so you will basically have a
                    friend from the force. This is a nice way to boost social
                    and make friends, by this is necessary for you to succeed
                    in this career path.

Build Independent Case - This is where you build up an independent case, by
                         yourself. This is work on the side that can lead to
                         a small bonus, but it will sacrifice job performance
                         as a result.

Use Workout Facility - Requires Level 1+ in Athletic Skill. You will build up

This is where you get two new perks. First is that you will be able to tell an
impressive story to other Sims, sort of like the news story for the Star News
Anchor, and this will help your relationship. The second is that you are able
to raid the Criminal Warehouse. 

The chances of success and failure are all dependent on the indicators for 
job performance, you need to have a good mood, high logic and athletic skill
as well as some reports done. You will have 3 outcomes. It will be a failure
and your mood will suffer as a result. A good raid will give a small bonus in
terms of Simoleons, whilst a successful raid will net you a LOT of money. 
Make sure that you download the patch, because there are reports that after a
raid, the Criminal career is broken as the warehouse is screwed over or 
something, I tend not to get too technical. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[6.07] Medical

This is one of the most demanding careers, in terms of skills, work hours,
and the exceptional amount of work that has to be done outside work hours, 
which totals to a hell of a lot. Anyway, the hours are long, the pay isn't
something that you want to live a life of luxury in. The hours are long, 
and you have a pager, so you will need to basically be available at ALL 
HOURS. 

There are 6 work tones that you can have in this career. A little copypasta
but there are some unique tones.

Work Hard - Again, this is where your Sim works hard at work, increasing the
            rate in which job performance is gained, but it also increases the
            rate in which your mood decays, especially Fun.

Watch TV in Ready Room - Like before, it is the exact opposite to the one 
                         above, it is where your Sim takes it easy, sometimes
                         gaining fun, but at the cost of which your job 
                         performance, which will suffer and increase at a much
                         slower rate.

Chat with Medical Personnel - This is basically finding out who all your
                              co-workers are and then talking them them to
                              build up a relationship with them, though it is
                              not useful in this career.

Do Boss's Paperwork - This is not necessary in this career, but it is good to
                      replenish that social bar after a long shift as well as
                      some extra hours work. 

Sleep in Ready Room - That ready room is useful, so this work tone will sell
                      off that job performance to replenish your energy, which
                      you will need, considering that you are in one career
                      where a good night's sleep is next to impossible. 

Suck Up to Boss - This is not necessary in this career, but it is good to
                  replenish that social bar after a long shift as well as some
                  extra hours work. 

And onto the jobs. This is a traditional path, it doesn't have any branches,
but some nice perks.

pager, so you need to head to the hospital at strange times as your pager
will go off. This will take some more time, and add that to a crushing 
shift and you have a need to take care of your mood. 

You will also get Medical Journals that you need to read as well. These
will need to be read for to advance in this career, you do need to stay
in touch with the latest medical procedures. Make sure that you keep reading
these journals to keep the rating high. 

Finally, the last thing from this level is that you can now give advice
to pregnant women. You can now give them medical advice, and what this does
is that it will lead to the baby getting some desirable traits. So it is
best to use this to your advantage rather than have it against you.

[6.08] Military

Sir! Yes Sir! Well, this isn't the military, it is more of the Air Force, 
given the jobs that you can do. Don't worry, all this is in peacetime, there
is no situation in which "war was declared". Anyway, this is a job in which
you need to keep a tone body, but the work hours are good and decent pay,
without the need for out of hours work.

There are only 4 tones for this, and this is cause for celebration. Copypasta
for all!

Work Hard - Again, this is where your Sim works hard at work, increasing the
            rate in which job performance is gained, but it also increases the
            rate in which your mood decays, especially Fun.

Goof Off - Like before, it is the exact opposite to the one above, it is where
           your Sim takes it easy, sometimes gaining fun, but at the cost of 
           which your job performance, which will suffer and increase at a 
           much slower rate.

Hand Out with Fellow Soldiers - This is basically finding out who all your
                                co-workers are and then talking them them to
                                build up a relationship with them, though it 
                                is not useful in this career.

Suck Up to Superior - This is necessary in this career, so you need to suck
                      up to the brass to ensure that your promotion up the
                      ladder is ensured.

Anyway, lets get down to the trenches to the jobs.

--==Latrine Cleaner==--

you are caught, you will lose job performance.

[6.09] Music

Without music, life would be pretty boring, if you think about it. This is a 
new career, though it was included in the Sims 2, in an expansion pack, this
is a larger career, with a branch path at Level 5, which makes a bit more
sense. The pay is low at the beginning, but it is quite high later on, skills
aren't too necessary, and there isn't too much work. 

There are 6 work tones, and this will be branching out a little, because their
name would be changed depending on the branch.

Work Hard - Again, this is where your Sim works hard at work, increasing the
            rate in which job performance is gained, but it also increases the
            rate in which your mood decays, especially Fun.

Slack Off - Like before, it is the exact opposite to the one above, it is 
            where your Sim takes it easy, sometimes gaining fun, but at the 
            cost of which your job performance, which will suffer and increase
            at a much slower rate.

Chill Out with Band / Musicians - This is basically finding out who all your
                                  co-workers are and then talking them them to
                                  build up a relationship with them, though it 
                                  is not useful in this career.

Meet Band / Orchestra Members - This is the second work tone, however, this is
                                concentrated on finding out all your band 
                                members. This is useless in the long run, but
                                useful to find out who to talk to.

Study Music Theory - This is one of the msot important tones, and one of the
                     most useful tones because it will give you Guitar and 
                     Logic skill points. 

Practice Performance - This is useful later on, this is where you practice 
                       for concerts that you will have to give in the Rock
                       Career path. Practice makes perfect, and more money.

Anyway, lets get down to business. 15 jobs to go. 

--==Fan==--

"Before you can create, you must appreciate. The difference between devotee
 and Fan are miniscule, but it makes all the difference in the world when

!BRANCH SPLIT!

This is where the branch will split into the Rockin Electric Rock path or the
Symphonic Path. Will you want to be a rock god, or do you want to be the 
leader of a massive orchestra? It is your choice. So lets do this.


			   ELECTRIC ROCK BRANCH

--==Lyricist==--

"The band hopes your lyrics will move them from one-hit wonder to rock icons.
 The first album wasn't bad, but the label says it's now or never for the band
 to hit it big. Keep practicing your music skills and perform plenty of

This career will start to ask for concerts, and this is done at the Theatre. 
Between 12PM and 12AM, and they normally last either 2 hours or 4 hours. The
more that you perform, the better for you. That is all, for now. 


--==Backup Vocalist==--

"Hopefully you're a fan of your own lyrics, because you're now going to start
 singing them as a Backup Vocalist. The label thinks the band needs some 
 sweet singing to round out their rough, darker side, so once against the
 welfare of the group falls on your hopefully able shoulders ... or should we

--==Lead Guitarist==--

"You're a genius with a guitar, at least in the eyes of the band and your 
 fans. Your solos speak to people in ways no lyrics ever could. Aspiring 
 youth all attempt to learn your solos, and adults gleefully air guitar to 
 your songs. The Rock n' Roll lifestyle has begun!"

"No matter what your detractors might say, you are clearly and without any

"Without peer,  is in charge.

 The most legendary concerts have your name on the ticket. The chart topping
 songs come from you. You're a genius, a rebel, a Rock Star that knows nothing

This is a strange job because what determines everything is the amount of 
concerts that you perform, since you get the money from that, as well as the
amount of autograph sessions. You can hold them at venues that you deem 
necessary, though you might want to pick a well populated area, maybe a
park? 

The place where you hold concerts will determine how much money you will 
get. You can hold them in the Stadium or the Theatre. The Theatre will have
a shorter concert, but less money. The Stadium will take longer, given the
amount of prep work, but you get double the money. At this point, you will
be rolling in the cash.

[6.10] Politics

The Politics career, another career that has survived intact, this is a 
career that strives on who you know, not what you know. The more popular you
are, the more likely you are to succeed in this career. This job, as it
progresses, has fewer work outs, but as a result, the pay isn't glamourous, 
but you need the money to keep those friends, friends.

There are only 5 work tones for this career, so I hope you enjoy some pasta.

Work Hard - Again, this is where your Sim works hard at work, increasing the
            rate in which job performance is gained, but it also increases the
            rate in which your mood decays, especially Fun.

Meet Co-Workers - This tone is used for you to quickly find out who your co-
                  workers are. This isn't useful for building a relationship,
                  but useful for figuring out who to talk to out of work.

Chat with Co-Workers - Like the other before it, this is less effective at
                       finding out who they, your co-workers are, but it is
                       useful to build up a relationship with them. 

Run Errands for Superior - This is needed in this career, because it isn't 
                           just skill alone that takes you ahead, but it is 
                           who you know, and if your boss thinks you are ready
                           or not to progress. 

Suggest New Course of Action - This is a new tone, an executive one, if you
                               will, but this will sacrifice job performance 
                               and it will lead to new ideas that can increase
                               job performance and relationships with your
                               boss and other co-workers.

--==Podium Polisher==--

"There's nothing glorious about being a Podium Polisher. A little wax rubbed
 on, a little rubbed off. The podium needs to look good for those who
 actually make a difference and their dramatic speeches. But polish well
 enough and keep the right attitude, and there may be room within the
 organisation for you."

Now there is campaign funding. Basically, you can talk to random individuals
on the street, and if they like you enough, you can use the special 
interaction to ask for Campaign Donation from them. You can even have 
campaign fundraiser parties as well, and the more successful the party is,
the more money you can make from it. The amount of funding is reset at 
least new level from now on, so you need to do a lot of legwork to make a 
lot of money. This interaction normally is positive. Rich Sims will tend
to give a lot, but Frugal Sims tend to give very little. 

And if you want, you can syphon money from your account, it is illegal, and
if you get caught, you will be fired. However, if you are not caught, well,
more money for you.

[6.11] Professional Sports

The Athletic career has been renamed to Professional Sports, and again, it is
all about Soccer/Football, depending on where in the world you are. This is a
career, that is quite demanding in terms of hours, and whilst the pay is 
poor at the beginning, it is quite high when you get to the higher end of
the career ladder.

There are only 5 work tones for this career. And they are...

Prepare for Game - When you need to start getting ready for the games, you
                   will want to win. Prepare for games will increase the 
                   chance that you will win the game, which is quite useful.

Meet Teammates - This tone is used for you to quickly find out who your co-
                 workers are. This isn't useful for building a relationship,
                 but useful for figuring out who to talk to out of work.

                      finding out who they, your co-workers are, but it is
                      useful to build up a relationship with them. 

Slack Off in Locker Room - No towel whipping please. This is basically the
                           take it easy option, and for this, you will lower
                           the rate of job performance gain, but lower fun
                           decay.

Work Out in Gym - As part of the sporting career, you need to work out to 
                  ensure that you are in shape all the time. This will boost
                  your Athletic skill, and this is all whilst you are being 
                  paid. How cool is that?

Now, onto the jobs.

This is where the Game Record will come into play. Now, work is effectively 
practice, where you practice for your games, which are held on game days for a
few hours. The more you practice, especially with the practice tone at work, 
the more likely you are to win, which is useful. This forms the game record, 
which tracks your wins and your losses, so make sure that you win, as it gives
the Winner moodlet as well.

And when you play your games, your family can watch, free of charge.

you to book a venue and you need to sign as many autographs as possible, the
more you sign, the more money you make.

[6.12] Science

The final career, this is the last of the 11 careers, full time careers 
anyway. This is the Science Career, moderate hours, for a modest income, but
it is the most demanding job in terms of skills, there are three skills that
are necessary to survive in this job. However, given that you are developing
three different skills, you can make money through other means. 

There are 6 tones for this career, though several are quite useless in this
career.

Work Hard - Again, this is where your Sim works hard at work, increasing the
            rate in which job performance is gained, but it also increases the
            rate in which your mood decays, especially Fun.

Relax in Speciman Closet - Like before, it is the exact opposite to the one 
                           above, it is where your Sim takes it easy, 
                           sometimes gaining fun, but at the cost of which 
                           your job performance, which will suffer and 
                           increase at a much slower rate.

Meet Fellow Scientists - This is basically finding out who all your co-workers
                         are and then talking them them to build up a 
                         relationship with them, though it is not useful in 
                         this career.

Hang Out With Fellow Scientists - Like the other before it, this is less 
                                  effective at finding out who they, your 
                                  co-workers are, but it is useful to build 
                                  up a relationship with them. 

Assist Boss with Research - This is not necessary in this career, but it is 
                            good to replenish that social bar after a long 
                            shift as well as some extra hours work. 

Do Independent Experiment - This is a new tone, an executive one, if you will,
                            but this will sacrifice job performance and it 
                            will lead to new ideas that can increase job 
                            performance and relationships with your boss and 
                            other co-workers.

Now, the final set of jobs.

--==Test Subject==--

"It's all for the good of science, at least that's what Test Subjects should
 constantly repeat to themselves. A little shock here, a potentially

It is at this level that you can Do Science to It! This is where your Mad
Science can do science to anything, and this is where it will lead to two
different outcomes to that object. Note that this can be to anything.

If it goes to plan, the object will get an environmental boost, the object
will somehow broadcast some music, which is crazy, but it will give a 
nice moodlet for it's trouble. It may also be upgraded with a handiness
upgrade, which is also random, and finally, it may give room based 
moodlets, like Beautiful Vista.

However, the upgrade can go wrong, it may burn down to the ground, or 
electrocute Sims that try to use it. Or it breaks down, broadcast negative
room based moodlets, such as Disgusted, or it could, which is the best
one of the all, disappear.

[7.01] Overview

Part Time jobs are available to teenagers, which is work after school for
them, or it can be done by adults and elders. For adults, this means that 
they forego their full time job. Now you may be wondering, why would they
want to forego a full time job with more money for a part-time job? Well, it 
purely to have more time to enjoy life, while surviving on the basic 
resources that they have.

Part time jobs are obtained by heading to the relevant building and asking for
a part time job. The work is always for three hours, there are no exceptions,
and there are always three tones, the normal tone, the work hard tone and
the take it easy tone. There are no unique tones. 

Promotions are obtained like full time jobs, you maximise the job performance
and you get the promotion. It is like a full job career, but there are only
3 jobs per career, and they are low paying, but low hours.

[8.01] Cooking

Cooking is quite a large part of the game, food is everything. The source of
moodlet, and it actively forces you to use your ingredients that you can 
fish from the sea, harvested from the garden or bought from the Supermarket.

Unlike previous games, where recipes were just obtained through increasing 
your cooking, skill, cooking in The Sims 3 is a bit different. Whilst a fair
amount are obtained through level progression, nearly half are obtained 
through cookbooks, recipes that you can purchase from the bookstore, which are
one use items, and read to learn the recipe.

When you are going to be cooking food, the best ingredients will give the 
best type of food, as well as a high cooking skill. Obviously, a food 
processor will do better than simply cutting up the food, and a high quality
grill will do a lot better than a cheap stove. 

And if you are confused about the time in which food is served, the little 
list will show when the time for food rolls over.

3AM  -  10AM = Breakfast
10AM -  5PM  = Lunch
5PM  -  3AM  = Dinner

9AM  -  3PM  on Weekends = Brunch

Below are all the recipes, what level you can obtain them in, the ingredients
that you will require, and any other details. Below is a template, and how to
read and understand it. 

--==Recipe Name==--

Cooking Skill = The level in which you need to be at to cook this dish.
Serving Size = The serving sizes you can serve this dish at, single or group
Base Quality = The lowest quality the dish can be served at minus problems 
               such as undercooking or burning the dish. 
Ingredients Required = These are the ingredients that you will need cook the
                       dish. 
Cost Alternative = This is how much you can pay for a single serving if you
                   do not have the ingredients on hand to cook the dish.
When to Cook = The times that you can cook the food, such as lunch or dinner.
Cooking Method = This is how the food is cooked, whether it is through the
                 oven, grill, or no cooking is involved. 
Source of Recipe = This is how the recipe is obtained, recipe book or level up

Anyway, let us start with the dishes. 


--==Autumn Salad==--

Cooking Skill        = 0
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Normal
Ingredients Required = Lettuce
Cost Alternative     = §5
When to Cook         = Brunch, Lunch, Dinner
Cooking Method       = No Cooking Required
Source of Recipe     = Already Learnt

This is one of the cheapest recipes that you can cook, so it is convenient 
to make this meal. Cheap, and filling. 


--==Hot Dog (Tofu Dog)==--

Cooking Skill        = 0
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Normal
Ingredients Required = Links
Cost Alternative     = §8
When to Cook         = Lunch, Dinner
Cooking Method       = BBQ Grill
Source of Recipe     = Already Learnt

A basic dish using the outdoor Grill is already set for you. Cheap, and you'll
see that a lot of neighbours will do this dish in neighbourhood grills. The 
brackets is to denote that it has a vegetarian alternative.


--==Mac and Cheese==--

Cooking Skill        = 0
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Normal
Ingredients Required = Cheese
Cost Alternative     = §8
When to Cook         = Lunch, Dinner
Cooking Method       = Stove
Source of Recipe     = Already Learnt

This is one of the older recipes, making it start all the way back from the 
first game. Still, I say it looks like a pile of vomit anyway. Seriously, look
at it. Doesn't look appetizing.


--==Waffles==--

Cooking Skill        = 0
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Normal
Ingredients Required = Egg
Cost Alternative     = §11
When to Cook         = Breakfast, Brunch
Cooking Method       = Oven
Source of Recipe     = Already Learnt

Do you like Waffles? Yeah I like Waffles. This is part one of the ad that I'm
going to use. Seriously, Youtube Do you like Waffles. Anyway, you somehow cook
this on the stove and oven, despite a Waffle Iron being far easier, yet not
existant in the game. A simple breakfast dish. 


--==Pancakes==--

Cooking Skill        = 1
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Normal
Ingredients Required = Any Fruit
Cost Alternative     = §6
When to Cook         = Breakfast, Brunch
Cooking Method       = Stove
Source of Recipe     = Level Progression

Do you like pancakes? Yeah we like pancakes! The part two. Anyway, pancakes
are nice and easy, and given that you need any fruit, such as an apple or a 
lime, this makes it an easy and filling dish. 


--==Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches==--

Cooking Skill        = 1
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Normal
Ingredients Required = Any Fruit
Cost Alternative     = §6
When to Cook         = Brunch, Lunch
Cooking Method       = No Cooking Required
Source of Recipe     = Level Progression

A classic dish and I guess the any fruit serves at the jam filling. I don't
see fruit being used any other way in this. Apple bread? 


--==Ratatouille==--

Cooking Skill        = 1
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Normal
Ingredients Required = Tomato
Cost Alternative     = §5
When to Cook         = Lunch, Dinner
Cooking Method       = Stove
Source of Recipe     = Recipe Book

No, this isn't a name of a movie, this is a tomato dish. Again, it is a cheap 
and filling dish, but quite ordinary.


--==Goopy Carbonara==--

Cooking Skill        = 2
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Nice
Ingredients Required = Onion
Cost Alternative     = §11
When to Cook         = Lunch, Dinner
Cooking Method       = Stove
Source of Recipe     = Level Progression

At least the image of this is less like vomit and a bit more edible. If you
cannot tell, it is a goopy carbonara, a carbonara a little goopy? 


--==Grilled Cheese Sandwiches==--

Cooking Skill        = 2
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Normal
Ingredients Required = Cheese
Cost Alternative     = §8
When to Cook         = Lunch
Cooking Method       = Stove
Source of Recipe     = Level Progression

The stove is for the grilled bit. Anyway, the aspiration from The Sims 2 is
back, and kicking more heads in. To be honest, it looks like a grilled PB&J
sandwich.


--==Cookies==--

Cooking Skill        = 3
Serving Size         = Group
Base Quality         = Nice
Ingredients Required = Egg
Cost Alternative     = §11
When to Cook         = Dessert
Cooking Method       = Oven
Source of Recipe     = Recipe Book

This is your first cookable dessert, and who doesn't like cookies. It is 
more expensive, but bear in mind that it is a group serving.


--==Fish and Chips==--

Cooking Skill        = 3
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Nice
Ingredients Required = Any Fish
Cost Alternative     = §5
When to Cook         = Dinner
Cooking Method       = Grill
Source of Recipe     = Recipe

This is your first fish dish, and I do wonder why they don't require potato
in this dish. It is a quick way to dispose of fish, like goldfish. 


--==Fruit Parfait==--

Cooking Skill        = 4
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Nice
Ingredients Required = Apples and Grapes
Cost Alternative     = §12
When to Cook         = Breakfast, Brunch
Cooking Method       = No Cooking Required
Source of Recipe     = Recipe

This is a nice breakfast, one that doesn't involve a slather of butter. 
Though it still doesn't look appealing.


--==Spaghetti (With Veggie Sauce)==--

Cooking Skill        = 4
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Very Nice
Ingredients Required = Tomato
Cost Alternative     = §5
When to Cook         = Dinner
Cooking Method       = Stove
Source of Recipe     = Level Progression

A nice dish, and one with a vegetarian alternative. I seriously wonder why we
can't add some cows in this game, and humanely kill the for meat, or send 
them off to Cow Heaven, for a lack of a better world. We don't need to see
any killing. Anyway, yeah, Spaghetti. Nice, filling, and cheap.


--==Sushi==--

Cooking Skill        = 4
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Nice 
Ingredients Required = Any Fish
Cost Alternative     = §5
When to Cook         = Dinner
Cooking Method       = No Cooking Required
Source of Recipe     = Level Progression

This is another useful dish, given that you need any fish, not a specific 
fish. Goldfish sushi sounds quite nice, don't you think?


--==Cheesesteak==--

Cooking Skill        = 5
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Nice
Ingredients Required = Cheese, Steak
Cost Alternative     = §38
When to Cook         = Lunch, Dinner
Cooking Method       = Grill
Source of Recipe     = Recipe Book

This is one of the more expensive dishes, mainly because steak is quite 
costly. 


--==Stu Surprise==--

Cooking Skill        = 5
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Nice
Ingredients Required = Any Two Ingredients
Cost Alternative     = §10
When to Cook         = Dinner
Cooking Method       = Stove
Source of Recipe     = Level Progression

This is a very useful dish to create if you want, mainly because you can use
any two ingredients, any, could be two fish, two vegetables, anything that is
considered food will do. 


--==Cobbler==--

Cooking Skill        = 6
Serving Size         = Group
Base Quality         = Very Nice
Ingredients Required = Any Fruit, Egg
Cost Alternative     = §17
When to Cook         = Dessert
Cooking Method       = Oven
Source of Recipe     = Recipe Book

This is a good way to dispose of fruit and make a very nice dessert as a 
result.


--==Hamburger (Veggie Burger)==--

Cooking Skill        = 6
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Very Nice
Ingredients Required = Onion, Patty
Cost Alternative     = §35
When to Cook         = Lunch, Dinner
Cooking Method       = Grill
Source of Recipe     = Level Progression

The final in terms of vegetarian alternatives to meat, surprisingly, there 
isn't too much in terms of meat dish in this game.


--==Eggs Machiavellian==--

Cooking Skill        = 7
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Very Nice
Ingredients Required = Egg, Watermelon
Cost Alternative     = §25
When to Cook         = Breakfast, Brunch
Cooking Method       = Stove
Source of Recipe     = Recipe Book

This is the best in terms of recipe that you can cook normally, Ambrosia 
doesn't count, that's cheating. From this point on, the recipes start to 
get more and more expensive.


--==Key Lime Pie==--

Cooking Skill        = 7
Serving Size         = Group
Base Quality         = Very Nice
Ingredients Required = Egg, Lime
Cost Alternative     = §25
When to Cook         = Dessert
Cooking Method       = Oven
Source of Recipe     = Level Progression

This is the best normal dessert that you can cook, there is a very better
dessert, but again, it is quite hard to obtain normally.


--==Grilled Salmon==--

Cooking Skill        = 8
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Very Nice
Ingredients Required = Garlic, Potato, Salmon
Cost Alternative     = §48
When to Cook         = Dinner
Cooking Method       = Grill
Source of Recipe     = Level Progression

This is a nice dish, and it shares equal first for the best grilled dish
that you can make.


--==Tri-Tip Steak==--

Cooking Skill        = 8
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Very Nice
Ingredients Required = Any Vegetable, Potato, Steak
Cost Alternative     = §46
When to Cook         = Dinner
Cooking Method       = Grill
Source of Recipe     = Recipe Book

This is the equal first best grilled dish, through it is the cheaper of
the two. Who doesn't want a steak anyway?


--==Dim Sum==--

Cooking Skill        = 9
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Great
Ingredients Required = Any Three Fish
Cost Alternative     = §15
When to Cook         = Brunch, Lunch
Cooking Method       = Stove
Source of Recipe     = Level Progression

Who doesn't want to eat goldfish dumplings? Anyway, this is a quick way 
to dispose of fish that you don't want to sell for chump change but remove
the cheap fish in the fridge.


--==French Toast==--

Cooking Skill        = 9
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Great
Ingredients Required = 2 Apples, Eggs
Cost Alternative     = §23
When to Cook         = Breakfast, Brunch
Cooking Method       = Oven
Source of Recipe     = Level Progression

So maybe Eggs Machiavellian isn't the best of the meals for breakfast. Oh,
the final part of the ad. Do you like French Toast? Yeah we like French 
Toast!


--==Stuffed Turkey==--

Cooking Skill        = 9
Serving Size         = Group
Base Quality         = Great
Ingredients Required = Any Two Vegatables, Roast
Cost Alternative     = §40
When to Cook         = Dinner
Cooking Method       = Oven
Source of Recipe     = Recipe Book

Who doesn't want to eat a nice turkey. Again, this is the only main dish that
can only be served as a group meal, and not a single meal. Seriously, have you
tried roasting a turkey for one? And no tofurkey jokes either.


--==Ambrosia==--

Cooking Skill        = 10
Serving Size         = Single
Base Quality         = Perfect
Ingredients Required = Deathfish, Lifefruit
Cost Alternative     = Cannot be Bought
When to Cook         = Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dinner
Cooking Method       = Stove
Source of Recipe     = Recipe Book

This is a very interesting dish. After eating it, you will instantly restore 
the hunger bar to full, it will give a Divine Meal Moodlet lasting 7 days and 
it will reset the Sims age back all the way to the start of the age group. And
when these are eaten by ghosts, you will have them revived at the point in 
time at which they died.


--==Baked Angel Food Cake==--

Cooking Skill        = 10
Serving Size         = Dessert
Base Quality         = Great
Ingredients Required = Two Eggs, Flame Fruit
Cost Alternative     = Cannot be Bought
When to Cook         = Dessert
Cooking Method       = Oven
Source of Recipe     = Recipe Book

This is a very powerful dessert, but it cannot be bought, due to Flame Fruit. 
When it is eaten, it will give the Warm Fuzzies moodlet for 5 hours. Keep
some in the fridge.


--==Lobster Thermidor==--

Cooking Skill        = 10
Serving Size         = Single or Group
Base Quality         = Great
Ingredients Required = Bell Pepper, Garlic, Lobster
Cost Alternative     = §66
When to Cook         = Dinner
Cooking Method       = Oven
Source of Recipe     = Skill Progression

The best dinner recipe that you can make, this is the same as the Lobster 
Thermidor that you can create in the second game as well. 

And that wraps up cooking. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[8.02] Fishing

Fishing is quite a big part of this game, there is a fair amount of fish
that you can collect. This is a skill that can be helped by the bookstore, you
can read books to help you on bait and books that can help your fishing
skill overall. 

Now, bait. Basically, bait is where you will attach something to your fishing
hook, and it will attract more fish overall. However, it will attract the 
type of fish that likes the bait most more than others. So you are more likely
to catch your wanted fish by using the specific bait. 

When you go to fish, a fish you catch can be used as a trophy of some sort.
For a small fee of §70, you can mount your fish to hang on the wall. Or you
can purchase a fish bowl and let your fish live. 

Next, there are two types of water you can fish in, freshwater and saltwater.
Saltwater, as you can guess, is salty water, and that means that these types
of fish are found in the ocean. Freshwater is mainly for fish found in rivers
and ponds. Simple enough. 

Finally, your own pond. Think of this as your own private fishing reserve. You
can stock a pond with a certain fish by having 10 or more of that type of fish
in your inventory. If you want goldfish in a certain pond, have 10 goldfish in
your inventory and stock it. Once you stock it, that fish will be able to be
caught in that pond infinitely. Personally, I'd keep it as a private reserve. 
There is no limit on what pond can be used, and what fish, so that means that 
if you have 10 Deathfish, a Deathfish pond. Also, this pond will allow you to
catch that fish any time of the day, again, another good thing for Deathfish. 

Besides catching fish, you can also catch some other things, normally found
in an old box. This will give you rare seeds (Flame Fruit, Life Fruit, Death
Flower, Omni Plant, Money Tree), Birthday Cakes, Mood Candles, Laptops, 
Bubble Bath, Guitars, Rubber Ducks and sometimes, the Mysterious Mr. Gnome.

Now, onto the fish. Below is the template that I will use for fish section
of the guide. 

--==Name of Fish==--

Fishing Level = The minimum level required for you to be able to catch this
                fish
Habitat = What type of water you will find the fish in.
Rarity = How rare or uncommon the fish is to find, which denotes the odds of
         catching it, the rarer, the more unlikely you are to catch it.
Bait = The preferred bait of the fish, using this will more likely than not
       hook you the fish you are looking for. 
Weight = How much the fish weighs in kilograms. Though this has no real use
         besides determining the value of the fish. The heavier, the better.
Value = The value of the fish, the lowest to highest possible price.


--==Anchovy==--

Fishing Level  = 0
Habitat        = Salt Water / Ocean
Rarity         = Common

Rarity         = Very Rare
Preferred Bait = Angelfish
Weight         = 20kg to 80kg
Value          = §200 to §1,000

Deathfish is notoriously hard to catch, so having the Love the Outdoors and 
Angler trait will be exceptionally handy, as well as the Commercial Fisherman
challenge. If you manage to catch it, well done. Now try to catch 10 and 
stock them in a pond just for deathfish. Why is it so valued? Because it is
exceptionally high value, and it is used in Ambrosia. 

What is interesting is that you sometimes will get boxes. Inside is what is
interesting, what will you get? Below is the probability of finding what item
inside the box, though the odds of getting a box depends on your fishing
hole.

 Birthday Cake        = 16%
 Bubble Bath          = 16%
 Death Flower         = 3%
 Flame Fruit          = 3%
 Guitar               = 10%
 Laptop               = 3%
 Money Tree Seed      = 5%
 Mood-Lite Candle     = 16%
 Mysterious Mr. Gnome = 6%
 Rubber Ducky         = 20%

[8.03] Gardening

Gardening is a large skill as well, larger than fishing, mainly because there
is a lot to grow. Plants are precious little things, they will need constant
watering, tending to weeds, harvesting, so pretty much constant maintenance.
This skill is improved greatly by the Green Thumb, Love the Outdoors and the
Super Green Thumb traits.

There are a fair amount of plants that you can grow, and I'll list them
below. There is also more than just gardening than tending to plants and
harvesting them.

Everyday, you will need to water the plants. The plants will seem to need
water, tending and harvesting at 5AM - 6AM daily, so if you have nothing to
do just before work, check up on the plants, harvest them and tend to them.
The best thing is that you now have a sprinkler to do the watering for you.
A little tinkering can let you do less work by watering the plants for you
when they need watering.

Now, what is the point of gardening? Well, it will grow some fruit and
vegetables that are necessary in cooking, and once you get to the very end
of the gardening skill, you can plant the omni-plant, which will turn into
anything that you want it to. 

How do you start gardening? Simple, you need a seed or a product that can be
planted, like an apple or a bell pepper, and then you plant it, it is rather
simple. When you plant it, you have to constantly water it, tend it and take
care of the weeds when it requires that, and harvest it when the produce is
ready. 

There are grades for plants, but they are similar to the grading for food
and fish. There is normal, nice, very nice, great, excellent, outstanding 
and perfect. The higher the grade, the more it is worth.

Lets start by looking at the plants below. Again, the template will be
explained.

--==Plant Name==--

Rarity = How rare the plant is to find
Skill Level = This is the skill level that your Sim will need to plant this
              plant. Note it is gardening skill.
Base Value = The price it will fetch for a normal quality plant.
Perfect Value = This is the amount of § you get for a perfect plant. 
Produce per Harvest = Amount of produce that you get per harvest.
Maximum Harvest = Amount that you can harvest until the plant is barren.
Chance of Weeds = The chance that weeds will infect your plant.

Anyway, let us start with the plants. But for this section, this ain't all.


--==Apple Tree==--

Rarity              = Common
Skill Level         = 0
Base Value          = §4
Perfect Value       = §16
Produce per Harvest = 3-5
Maximum Harvest     = 40
Chance of Weeds     = 10%

As a side note, when a pregnant Sim eats an apple, the chance of the baby
being a male increases.


--==Grape Vine==--

Rarity              = Common
Skill Level         = 0
Base Value          = §4
Perfect Value       = §16
Produce per Harvest = 2-4
Maximum Harvest     = 15
Chance of Weeds     = 20%


--==Lettuce Plant==--

Rarity              = Common
Skill Level         = 0
Base Value          = §3
Perfect Value       = §12
Produce per Harvest = 1-3
Maximum Harvest     = 15
Chance of Weeds     = 20%


--==Tomato Plant==--

Rarity              = Common
Skill Level         = 0
Base Value          = §3
Perfect Value       = §12
Produce per Harvest = 2-4
Maximum Harvest     = 20
Chance of Weeds     = 20%


--==Lime Tree==--

Rarity              = Uncommon
Skill Level         = 5
Base Value          = §9
Perfect Value       = §36
Produce per Harvest = 3-5
Maximum Harvest     = 40
Chance of Weeds     = 25%


--==Onion Plant==--

Rarity              = Uncommon
Skill Level         = 5
Base Value          = §7
Perfect Value       = §28
Produce per Harvest = 1-3
Maximum Harvest     = 25
Chance of Weeds     = 5%


--==Potato Plant==--

Rarity              = Uncommon
Skill Level         = 5
Base Value          = §7
Perfect Value       = §28
Produce per Harvest = 1-3
Maximum Harvest     = 15
Chance of Weeds     = 5%


--==Watermelon Vine==--

Rarity              = Uncommon
Skill Level         = 5
Base Value          = §9
Perfect Value       = §36
Produce per Harvest = 1-2
Maximum Harvest     = 10
Chance of Weeds     = 25%

Like the Apple, this has an effect on a pregnant Sim, however, it will 
increase the chance of a girl being born. 


--==Bell Pepper Plant==--

Rarity              = Rare
Skill Level         = 7
Base Value          = §12
Perfect Value       = §48
Produce per Harvest = 2-4
Maximum Harvest     = 15
Chance of Weeds     = 20%


--==Garlic Plant==--

Rarity              = Rare
Skill Level         = 7
Base Value          = §15
Perfect Value       = §60
Produce per Harvest = 3-5
Maximum Harvest     = 30
Chance of Weeds     = 10%

This will give your Sim Garlic Breath Moodlet if the Sim eats this raw. So
it isn't a good idea to do so.


--==Death Flower Plant==--

Rarity              = Special
Skill Level         = 7
Base Value          = Not Sellable
Perfect Value       = Not Sellable
Produce per Harvest = 2
Maximum Harvest     = 2
Chance of Weeds     = 2.5%

This plant is special for a reason. It will only produce a single flower,
unless you have the Green Thumb trait. This is special because when the Grim
Reaper comes to visit your Sim, if they have this in their inventory, their
lives will be spared for the cost of this plant. Think of it as a life
insurance policy.


--==Flame Fruit Bush==--

Rarity              = Special
Skill Level         = 7
Base Value          = §18
Perfect Value       = §72
Produce per Harvest = 1-3
Maximum Harvest     = 20
Chance of Weeds     = 5%

This plant is special because it provides a moodlet, of being warmed, when
it is held in your inventory. It is also used in the Baked Angel Food Cake
recipe. 


--==Life Plant==--

Rarity              = Special
Skill Level         = 7
Base Value          = §25
Perfect Value       = §100
Produce per Harvest = 1-3
Maximum Harvest     = 12
Chance of Weeds     = 25%

This plant is special because when you consume the Life Fruit, it will reduce
the age of your Sim by a single day. And when they start stacking up, this 
starts to count. 


--==Money Tree==--

Rarity              = Special
Skill Level         = 7
Base Value          = §100-200
Perfect Value       = §700-800
Produce per Harvest = 2-5
Maximum Harvest     = 10000
Chance of Weeds     = 25%

This is special because it will give you money bags, but you cannot plant it
for more trees. However, make sure that you keep good care of this plant, if
you neglect it, it will burst into flames and create bills that you have to 
pay. 


--==Cheese Plant==--

Rarity              = Special 
Skill Level         = 8
Base Value          = §5
Perfect Value       = §20
Produce per Harvest = 2-5
Maximum Harvest     = 15
Chance of Weeds     = 25%

This plant is special because you need to complete an opportunity for you to 
be able to plant regular cheese that you can purchase from the store into this
plant, which will grow cheese, that you can improve quality on.


--==Eggplant==--

Rarity              = Special
Skill Level         = 8
Base Value          = §7
Perfect Value       = §28
Produce per Harvest = 2-5
Maximum Harvest     = 15
Chance of Weeds     = 25%

This doesn't create normal eggplants, but it is a plant that will give you 
eggs that you can harvest. This is again obtained through the same opportunity
that you will get the Cheese Plant from.


--==Burger Patty Plant==--

Rarity              = Special
Skill Level         = 9
Base Value          = §16
Perfect Value       = §64
Produce per Harvest = 2-5
Maximum Harvest     = 15
Chance of Weeds     = 25%

This is obtained through the opportunity that will proceed you reaching level
9 in the gardening skill. This will let you plant a burger patty and a steak
into a plant, and harvest those. 


--==Steak Plant==--

Rarity              = Special
Skill Level         = 9
Base Value          = §20
Perfect Value       = §80
Produce per Harvest = 2-5
Maximum Harvest     = 15
Chance of Weeds     = 25%

Again, same as above, this is where you can plant a steak and you can
harvest a steak from the plant. 


--==Omni-Plant==--

Rarity              = Special
Skill Level         = 10
Base Value          = §Varies
Perfect Value       = §Varies
Produce per Harvest = 2-5
Maximum Harvest     = 25
Chance of Weeds     = 15%

This is a very special plant that is obtained through opportunities and from
that point, you can order them via mail. This plant will produce what you
submit it as fertilizer, you can feed it anything as a fertilizer, and it 
will grow it for you. However, there are some things you cannot feed it, you
cannot feed Death Flowers, seeds, one-use books. 

For example, you can fertilize the plant with books, and it will produce 
books for you to sell. Interesting. Have fun with it.


How, for the amount of money that you can sell it for. Note that whenever 
you sell a harvestable at the supermarket, you will get a 10% premium on it,
so you get 10% more.

Now, for a price guide, the amount of the base value that you get based on
the quality of the value. Use the base value of the plant, and you can 
determine the base value of the plant based on quality.

Normal      = 100%
Nice        = 110%
Very Nice   = 150%
Great       = 200%
Excellent   = 250%
Outstanding = 300%
Perfect     = 400%


Now, onto fertilizer. Fertilizer is used to enhance the quality of the 
plant, which will, in turn, increase the quality of the harvest. There
are three things to look out for, grade, time and the name of the 
fertilizer. Grade is how much it will improve the plant, time will show
how long the plant will be fertilized for from that fertilizer, and the
name is the name of the fertilizer.

Below is a list of all the fertilizer that you can use. I'll list them
by grade, which means that the best fertilizers are at the top, the worst
are at the bottom. 

Grade = 25

Lifefruit   = Lasts 6 Days
Angelfish   = Lasts 4 Days
Vampirefish = Lasts 3 Days


Grade = 20

Shark   = Lasts 4 Days
Lobster = Lasts 3 Days


Grade = 15

Garlic           = Lasts 6 Days
Steak            = Lasts 4 Days
Bell Pepper      = Lasts 4 Days
Blowfish         = Lasts 4 Days
Piranha          = Lasts 4 Days
Flame Fruit      = Lasts 4 Days
Tragic Clownfish = Lasts 4 Days
Siamese Catfish  = Lasts 4 Days
Red Herring      = Lasts 4 Days


Grade = 12.5

Black Goldfish = Lasts 3 Days
Salmon         = Lasts 3 Days
Swordfish      = Lasts 3 Days


Grade = 10

Watermelon = Lasts 5 Days
Jellyfish  = Lasts 4 Days
Minnow     = Lasts 4 Days
Tuna       = Lasts 3 Days


Grade = 7.5

Rainbow Trout = Lasts 3 Days


Grade = 5

Lime          = Lasts 6 Days
Onion         = Lasts 6 Days
Potato        = Lasts 5 Days
Burger Patty  = Lasts 4 Days
Apple         = Lasts 4 Days
Cheese        = Lasts 4 Days
Tomato        = Lasts 4 Days
Egg           = Lasts 4 Days
Lettuce       = Lasts 4 Days
Alley Catfish = Lasts 3 Days
Grapes        = Lasts 3 Days
Goldfish      = Lasts 3 Days
Anchovy       = Lasts 3 Days


Instant Death of Plant

Deathfish = Lasts 4 Days


The type of fertilizer, as in quality, will also effect how long the 
fertilizer will last. Great, Excellent and Outstanding fertilizer will last 
for an extra day, whilst Perfect Fertilizer will last for an extra 2 days.

The quality will also determine how effective the grade is. Below is a 
list of the quality of the fertilizer and how effective it is. 1 will be
considered normal, whilst 2 will mean that the fertilizer is twice as 
effective.

Normal      = 1 times as effective as Normal Fertilizer
Nice        = 1.1 times as effective as Normal Fertilizer
Very Nice   = 1.2 times as effective as Normal Fertilizer
Great       = 1.4 times as effective as Normal Fertilizer
Excellent   = 1.6 times as effective as Normal Fertilizer
Outstanding = 1.8 times as effective as Normal Fertilizer
Perfect     = 2 times as effective as Normal Fertilizer

And that will wrap up gardening.

[8.05] Handiness

Handiness is a skill that is quite useful if you want to make sure that your
items around the household give more of a boost. Basically, it is toying 
around with items to make them more useful.

This is a skill that, when improved, will allow you more access to newer
upgrades, and whilst they do cost a fair bit, and increase your household 
bills somewhat, but they are exceptionally useful. Why wouldn't you want to 
have more channels that you want on the TV?

Anyway, note that each item can only have one upgrade at a time, so you cannot
have more than that. However, there is another side to upgrading. Sure, you
will get a good benefit, but there is a risk that your upgrade can fail and 
as such, cause some adverse effects.

Now, below are the upgrades. Again, a template will be used to talk about
them, so follow the template, understand it, and that will help you understand
everything that I bother to type.

--==Upgrade Time==--

Objects Upgraded = These are the objects that can be fitted with this upgrade
Level Required = This is the level at Handiness you need to be at to apply
                 this upgrade.
Difficulty = This will be how hard it will be to upgrade the object, which 
             means the more difficult it is, the more time it will take. 
Effect = What this will do to the object, once upgraded
Failure = This is what happens if you fail to upgrade the item.

And let us begin on zee upgrades.


--==Auto Light==--

Objects Upgraded = Gas Fireplace

[9.01] Education

Education is a tad different from the Sims 2 to the Sims 3. No longer is there
a difference in schools, they all go to the same school. All children and 
teenagers have to go to school, well, if they don't, they get bad grades, and
that will haunt them for life though the trait system.

All children have to attend school between the hours of 9AM and 3PM, whilst
teenagers get to leave an hour early, so they will be in school for the hours
of 9AM and 2PM. School days are obviously Monday to Friday.

Basically, school acts like a normal career job, you will have grades that is
the same as job performance, and there are school tones that you can do, the
attitude that you can partake in school will effect what will happen whilst
your kids are at school. There are 7 tones that you can pick at school, and
here they are. 

Normal Effort - Well, this is the basic tone, your kids will put in some 
                effort, but not too much, and they will get decent grades, 
                but this is the default and average tone.

Work Hard - This is the hard work option, obviously, it means that your fun
            bar will take a massive hit, you will double the decay rate of the
            fun bar, but it will also double the rate in which your grades 
            will improve. Of course, this will, more often than not, lead to
            the stressed out moodlet.

Slack Off - This is the opposite to the work hard moodlet. This will lead to
            some improvement in the fun bar, so you get entertained at school,
            but your grades will not increase a lot, so don't do this if you
            want high grades.

Meet New Friends - This is an interesting tone, this will have you meet more
                   people in school, and if you meet a friend via this tone,
                   you will get a bonus to your friendship and heighten the
                   chances of bringing a friend home after school that day.

Talk to Friends - This is one where you talk to your existing friends, 
                  establishing a stronger relationship with them. This will
                  maintain your friendship, and it also increases that you
                  will be invited to your friend's house or invite your 
                  friends back to your place at the end of the day. 

Sleep in Class - This is an interesting one, where if you turn up to school
                 sleepy, you get this tone to play with, or it will happen
                 automatically if you get the Exhausted tone. Basically, you
                 will sleep in class, but while you are increasing your 
                 energy bar, if you get caught sleeping in class, you will 
                 be sent to detention.

Work Late on Homework - If you go to school without completing on all your
                        homework, you will try to finish it at school
                        instead, and whilst you won't get caught, you won't
                        receive higher grades as a result. 

What is the wrap up on basic schooling, the bits and pieces are next. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[9.02] Bits and Pieces

Homework is one of the key things that revolves around education. Every day
after your Sims complete school, they will get a homework book in their
inventory. They are to complete it everyday, and if they do, they will get
a boost to their grades. However, you can try to complete it at school if
you have it incomplete.

Like any other task that your Sims do, there will be a progress bar that
will appear when they are doing their homework, and once it is complete, it
will be full and it is done. Having a higher logic skill will speed things 
up, whilst asking someone else for their assistance, such as an adult, will
speed things up as well.

Of course, you can do it the easy way a cheat off another classmate, but
this has its own problems, if you get caught cheating, that is, the teacher
actually checks the work, you will be sent straight to detention for
cheating.

The problem with homework is that if you do not do any of the homework that 
the game sets, you will suffer a performance drop the next day. If you do a
bit of the homework, your grades will stay the same, but completing it will
give a significant boost to your grades. So yeah, kids, do your damn 
homework if you want good grades. 

Now, onto the grades themselves. What is the big deal about them? Basically,
there are several grades, pretty much your standard A, B, C, D and F. Grades
are a general reflection of your Sims performance at school, and it is 
actually important when they grow into a new age group. When a child turns 
into a teenager and from teenager to young adult, they will get a new
trait. Grades play an important role in that they will influence the chance
of a good or bad trait. A & B will lead to a good trait, C is more or less
50/50 whilst D & F tend to give negative traits. 

Another thing that grades will give are moodlets. If a student achieves an 
A grade for 3 days straight, they will get the Honour Roll moodlet that lasts
a whole day, and for every A continiously after that, they get another 
Honour Roll moodlet. However, if you get an F grade, you will get a Failing
moodlet, so really, you don't want to fail. 

Next order of business, it is Detention. Basically, if you get caught sleeping
in class or you have been caught cheating on your homework, you will be sent
to detention, which takes place after school. So basically, you are stuck at
school for 2 to 3 hours more than if you avoided detention. There is no 
benefit for being in detention, you will not be able to attend work, do any
work, improve your grades, nothing. And it gives you a Detention moodlet as
well. Ain't that nice?

Finally, friends. You will, at the end of the day, have the chance to invite 
friends over to your place or you can visit your friends at their houses. 
Of course, this takes place after school, and you have total control if you
want your kids to visit their friends. Although the tone will determine the
chances, another factor is the distance between houses, the closer your
friends are, the more likely they are to invite you over. 

And that about wraps up education for now. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[10.01] General Overview

The Sims 3 only has a default life span, you can adjust how long your Sims 
can live for. They normally live for about 90 days, though you can adjust
it to 25, 50, 190 or 970 day life spans, or you can just disable aging
altogether though the Game Options tab. This is important, seeing as you 
don't need the aging cheat anymore.

However, given that the age stages are set on a default, here is how long each
life stage will last for.

 Baby        - 2 Days
 Toddler     - 7 Days
 Child       - 7 Days
 Teenager    - 14 Days
 Young Adult - 21 Days
 Adult       - 21 Days
 Elder       - At Least 16 Days

Like in the last game, when you approach the stage in which your Sims will
advance to the next stage level, you will get a warning. Now, unlike the last
game, there is a relatively important reason why age transitions is more 
important. 

Basically, when you transgress from toddler to child, child to teen and teen
to adult, you will be getting a new trait, and this is important. What you
do in those age groups will determine what trait you will get, do a good job
and you can select the trait, do a bad job and you end up with a bad trait for
life. 

Age advancement takes place at 7PM on the given day that they are to move into
the next age group. However, you can purchase a birthday cake and have the 
growing up Sim to blow out the candles, however, when you want them to 
progress is completely up to you. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[10.02] Babies

Babies are the first of the life stages. This is when the baby is first born,
they will be in this stage for 2 days, and for these 2 days, you will pretty
much get no sleep, because these Sims are extremely high maintenance. For
the parents, they will get leave off work to look after their kid, but those
2 days are going to be hellish.

Babies only have 4 needs, they will have the Energy, Hygiene, Hunger and the
Social bar. However, if you think it is easy to maintain these bars, you are
dead wrong.

Energy is a bar that will deplete extremely quickly. They need a lot of sleep
because their decay is exceptionally quick, and they also do not have a
regular cycle, they do not sleep in the night, wake during the day, they will
sleep when their enengy bar is low or when they are in a crib. And when you
start to sleep, you can bet your bottom dollar that they will start crying and
you better get out of bed to look after them.

Hunger is another bar that will need maintenance. Babies will only drink out
of bottles, and that is the only thing that they will consume, they will not
be able to eat the food that you normally eat. This means that you need to 
prepare some bottles for them.

Hygiene is a bar that you can take care of relatively easily, they will do 
their business in their pants, or rather, diapers, and all you need to do is
to change their diapers, which is relatively simple. That should refresh their
hygiene bar.

And the Social bar, well, it is all about playing with the baby and 
interacting with it, so it isn't anything new. 

What is of note that for now and until they are teenagers, you need to make
sure that you take care of your kids, otherwise, the social worker will come
along and take them away from you, and send them to the Flanders. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[10.03] Toddlers

Toddlers are a little easier to handle than your average baby, and you need
to deal with them for a total of 7 days. There are several differences 
compared to babies.

First, they do not require as much sleep, but they do require a fair bit more
sleep than their child counterparts, so that is a minor annoyance. Hunger
is about the same, you can feed them with a bottle, or you can cook food for
the toddler, puree it in the food processor, and then feed it.

Hygiene is roughly the same whilst they will have a Fun bar, so you will need
to entertain them.

There are three important events that you need to note when you are taking 
care of toddlers. To have the ability to select a trait for towards the next
life stage of child, you will need to potty train your kids. This is important
because once you train your kids to use the toilet, you no longer need to 
worry about changing their diapers, rather, you need to make sure that you 
clean their little potty.

The next thing is that you need to teach them to walk. This takes a fair 
amount of time, and once they are able to walk, they will crawl from place to
place, rather than relying on an adult to drag them around. And finally, you
need to teach your toddler to talk. The later 2 are trainable when you click
on the toddler, the potty train option requires you to make them use a toilet.

There are 2 methods to train a toddler faster. First is to have an elder Sim
to teach them, they will teach the toddlers faster, and it relieves the 
pressure from Mummy and Daddy as well, and given the high demands of the
child, it is a good idea. Also, the next method is to have them in a good 
mood, kids in a good mood learn faster. Also applies to real life, kids in a 
good mood learn faster, kids in a bad mood don't, they are just more likely
to toss things at your head. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[10.04] Child

At the stage of child, your Sims get very independent, they are able to do
most things by themselves, except enter a relationship and cook for 
themselves, rather, they would just go and eat some snacks out of the 
fridge. 

However, at this stage, they will start school, and all the details for that 
is mentioned above. It is also at this stage that children will also start
to learn some skills, which will help them in their later life. 

It is also at this point in time that they get a curfew, they will have to
be home by a certain time, or the police will pick them up and deliver them
back to your home if you break the curfew. Talk about all work and no play. 
However, kids automatically go home, so don't worry too much about them.

However, again, after 7 days, they will transgress to a new age group, and
for the ability to select a trait that you want, you will need a grade of A
at school, which isn't all that hard to obtain. For more about how grades
work, there is a relevant education section.

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[10.05] Teenager

Teen is where things get interesting. They can learn all the skills at this
stage of the game, and they also have the ability to get involved into
romantic relationships, but the Court of SimCity does not permit them to
get involved into something like a marriage. 

For them, school is still the same, yet they get an earlymark of 1 hour 
compared to their younger counterparts, so they finish at 2PM. They will
also have the ability to take a part time job, which is quite useful for the
cash. 

School is quite important, it is here that you make friends for life, as well
as develop good grades, which is important for selecting the fifth trait in
your Sim's life. And because they can have a job, they will need to balance
both school, work, and their life in a single juggle. 

It is also at this stage where they can play around with the curfew. They
can actually break the curfew, which is set between the lovely hours of 11PM
and 6AM, and if they do, if they are picked up by the police, they will be 
sent home, without question, and get a negative moodlet for their trouble,
whilst breaking the curfew without being detained leads to a positive 
breaking the curfew moodlet. 

And finally, the final standout thing about being in the Teen age group is
that your Sim will have the ability to choose their lifetime wish. As you
should know by now, it is very important to make the right decision, and 
as such, you might need to think this over carefully to ensure that you make
the right decision on your Sim's future plan in life, do they want to be a
family person, or career driven? That is up to you.

Again, the development into the next age group brings about the last trait
selection, so please make the right decision. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[10.06] Young Adult

To be honest, there is no difference between young adult and adult, besides
the part they get "young" title attached. Other than that, it is the same as
the one below.

However, I do think that the point of the Young Adult is to lengthen the time
that a Sim spends in their adult stage. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[10.07] Adult

Anyway, the adult stage is where things get interesting, basically all the
options are available to them, they have the option to get a full time job,
enter a serious relationship, have kids, the whole nine yards, the whole
kitten caboodle. 

Basically, this is the point in a Sim's life that they can do whatever they
want, every single job career is open to them, offical and unoffical, farmer
to police officer, writer to scientist, the possibilities are endless. Well,
there is a finite amount, but it is quite a large number.

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[10.08] Elder

Elder is where things get interesting. Compared to the previous game, elders
can still get full time jobs, but they life is about up. But should they
reture, they will get a nice pension from their job, so that isn't a bad idea,
a pension for doing nothing after service for many years. 

This is basically the time to wrap everything up for that Sim, anything that
they have no finished in life, like write a novel, paint a painting, all of
that, now is the time to finish it off before the end is nigh. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[10.09] Death

Ah, probably everyone's favourite section. The death section. Here, we talk
about all the ways to die. For the Sims of course. There are only 5 methods
of death in this game. I seriously did think death by satellite was a more
interesting method of death. 

--==Old Age==--

Ages Effected - Elder
Method        - Reach the end of their life
Ghost Colour  - White

This is the age old method, every Sim, provided that aging is on, will reach
this stage on their life. Basically, it is unavoidable, no matter how much 
you try to avoid it, you'll reach it. 


--==Electrocution==--

Ages Effected - Teen, Young Adult, Adult, Elder
Method        - Repair broken object unsuccessfully
Ghost Colour  - Yellow

Why, you are looking cute today. Basically, you are trying to repair an 
object when you don't have a very high handiness skill, or you are smart 
enough to repair electrical items whilst standing in a puddle of water, not
exactly the smartest decision on the face of the earth. 


--==Starvation==--

Ages Effected - Teen, Young Adult, Adult, Elder
Method        - Don't feed them. EVER.
Ghost Colour  - Purple

Basically, you don't have to feed them. This is rather simple, no food, or
stay out of food. Actually, in this game, it is harder, since they can wonder
into the town and grab stuff to eat for free, you'd need to lock them in a 
room, without a door perhaps. Not exactly practical, but it is effective. 
Over time. 


--==Burnt Alive==--

Ages Effected - Child, Teen, Young Adult, Adult, Elder
Method        - When they are on fire, don't put them out
Ghost Colour  - Red

This is basically when a sim is on fire, either it is because they burnt their
food and they catch on fire, or an appliance decided to catch on fire, or the
fireplace is a bit accident prone, once a Sim catches on fire, it is, 
needless to say, not exactly a fun thing. Don't put them out, and they will
slowly burn to death. FUN!


--==Drowned==--

Ages Effected - Child, Teen, Young Adult, Adult, Elder
Method        - Don't let a Sim out of a pool
Ghost Colour  - Blue

Basically, the Sim is too tired to swim, and they are too stupid to get out
of a pool via the side, they will drown to death. This is the most favoured 
method of Sim player worldwide to knock off their Sims, knock them off this
mortal coil at least. 


When the time is up, the Grim Reaper will turn up in all his glory and take
away the life of the Sim, whether they deserved life or not. The reaper will
do his business, and leave, or he might stay and you can have a chat. If 
there is one thing I cna ask him, it is where the hell he bought his cloak, 
it's pretty nice.

There are ways to starve off death. You can be an unlucky Sim and die via
Fire or Electricity, and sometimes, the Grim Reaper may feel nice and 
resurrect them promptly, back to life. 

Another method is to have a death blossom at hand. You can grow these from
seeds that you can find near the graveyard, and they will be listed as 
Special. Alternatively, you can be a good garden, harvest a death blossom 
from the graveyard, and double your yield, and have an infinite supply at
hand. When the Reaper sees that, he will take the blossom, rather than your
life. 

Finally, though this is for warding off old age, is to eat lots and lots of
life fruits. These will bring back 2 days odd of your life, and after a 
while, this starts to stack up. Of course, this is if you want to live
forever, not everyone does. 

There is more to talk about ghosts, but I'm feeling generous enough that I
have decided that they get their own section. Why not?

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[10.10] Ghosts

Sometimes, at night, the ghosts of dead Sims may haunt the area around their
gravestone. They will generally appear after 11PM at night, cracking the 
ground around their gravestone, and appear, their vibrant colour determined 
by the method of their death, from brillant white to fiery red. 

Ghosts are strange creatures, in the Sims 3, they are rather tame, they will
not cause trouble or try to scare the crap out of your Sims, they are rather
friendly, even if you were the one who lead to their death. The only thing
that they will do, if they are on your lot, is that they will come along and
wake you up, which isn't very nice.

Different Sims have different reactions to seeing a Ghost. Defined by their
traits, some will be glad and happy to see a ghost, but some will not be as
glad, and they will run off and get the Scared moodlet. 

To see a ghost, all you need is the gravestone marker on a lot. So if you want
to have some on your lot, you could perhaps, borrow, a gravestone from the
graveyard, and put it on your lot, or just kill a Sim, either or, don't fuss
too much about it. 

When the ghosts do pop up, they will be able to be talked to, after all, they
are rather friendly. You can talk to them like a normal Sim, you can develop a
nice relationship with them, as if they were still alive, but of course, you
cannot enter a romantic relationship with them, that would be rather strange
and problematic. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[10.11] Playing as Ghosts

Remember how I said that you can't enter a romantic relationship with a 
ghost. Actually, that was like 5 lines above. Anyway, you can. But the way to
do it is that you need to restore a ghost. Now, the science is a bit strange,
but you can head over to the Science Facility to restore a ghost. 

By doing that, you can play a ghost. You can muck around with a ghost! And as
such, you can do everything that a normal Sim can do. They can eat, sleep,
talk and have fun, they are like a normal Sim, EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT THEY
ARE A GHOST! 

And like a normal Sim, you can even try to get a baby. Of course, playing with
simple genetics, if you have a normal Sim and a Ghost Sim trying to have a 
kid, there will be a 50/50 chance it would be a ghost, if there is a Ghost
father and mother, well, the kid will be a ghost, obivously. 

Basically, they are the same at the normal Sim, they have been resurrected,
except that their body is kind of, um, missing? 

Oh, and a side note, if you manage to get Ambrosia to a ghost's mouth, you
might have a chance of restoring them back to life. Just a side note. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[11.01] Relationship Basics

The relationship system has changed significantly from previous games, mainly
because relationships are no longer a set of two numbers, a short term and
long term relationship numbers, but rather, it is all just a meter.

The short term relationship system has been replaced by a short term context
instead. This sets the tone of the conversation in the short term. So when you
are conversing with another Sim, the context will determine the gains obtained
in the relationship. But more on that later.

The long term relationship has changed a fair bit. Instead of being a number
ranging between -100 and 100, it is now a meter, where there is no number. Of
course, this has its own changes to bring forth. Now, because, all socials had
an effect on short and long term relationship numbers, but now, socials will
now only have an effect on the long term relationship, or rather, the long 
term metre. 

Of course, this is a complete overhaul, so I'll have to go in depth about each
of these in its own section. Just to make sure you understand completely. 

Now, why do you need friends? Well, in real life, some people don't need them,
but in this game, it is somewhat different. I mean, in the game, you can talk
to the Grim Reaper, but good luck in real life. The uses of friends is 
generally used in job careers. You need a set amount of friends, so it is 
desirable to have friends because it gets you promoted faster. And the fact
that you can keep your social bar nice and high.

Two new reasons to have friends in this game. The first is that some wishes
will require you to have friends, and as such, you need to them finish off
those wishes. And the second reason is to give your mood a boost, seeing that
having friends can often give you some nice moodlets to play with, and boost
your mood in return. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[11.02] Short Term Context

The short term context is basically how one Sim thinks about another during
the natural course of their conversation. So basically, this will change 
from every conversation.

However, the reason why this is so important because it will determine how
much a relationship will decay from it's Long Term Relationship and how much
it will return back to good terms with a negative relationship on the line. 

Basically, every 24 hours, or every day, a long term relationship will return
back to zero. So, whatever relationship you have with a person, if it is 
positive, it will go back to zero, and if it is negative, it will go back
up to zero. Basically, a relationship will head back to zero, no matter how
good or bad it is. That is the basic meaning of decay. 

Basically, the context of your conversations will determine the decay of
the relationship. How, before you can understand how it will affect the
relationship, you need to understand the different categories of contexts
in which a conversation an take place.

A Boring context is where a Sim thinks another person is Dull, Drab or
Insufferably Tedious.

A Creepy context is where a Sim thinks another Sim is Odd, Creepy,
Frightening or Very Scary. 

An Insulting context is where a Sim thinks another Sim is Impolite, 
Insulting or Unforgivably Rude.

An Awkward context is where a Sim thinks another is Awkward, Very Awkward
or Steamed. 

An Amorous context is where another Sim thinks a Sim is Flirty, Seductive
or Hot.

A Friendly context is where a Sim thinks another is Friendly, OK, or 
Very Friendly.

And finally, a Funny context is where a Sim thinks another Sim is Funny,
Hilarious and Amusing. 

Now, how these contexts will effect the long term relationship. Different
contexts will change the decay of the relationship. For positive 
relationships, the Boring, Friendly, Funny and Amorous contexts will have a 
slower relationship decay than the Creepy, Insulting and Awkward contexts.

For negative relationships, it is a bit different. The Funny, Friendly and
Amorous contexts will have a negative relationship decay back to zero faster
than that of a Boring, Creepy, Insulting or Awkward context. Therefore, it
might be of use if you understand short term context properly.

Therefore, with the right social skills, you can make sure that enemies
can become friends, and long old friends become nothing more than mere 
shadows. But this is in the short term, it can change every day. There is
one thing that doesn't change every day, and that is the relationship 
metre, or the long term relationship metre. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[11.03] Long Term Relationships

Long Term relationships are the values that you need to understand in this
game. Your relationship with someone is determined by a metre, and whilst
it is no longer in a number form, you can see the metre as a rating from 
-100 to 100. Basically, whilst the Short Term Context is one that is not
the same from person to person, as in, a person can find one dull whilst
the other can find it funny. 

The Long Term Relationship is the same for both people. It will start from
Zero, where it is when two people meet, they are naught by acquaintances,
and from there, it can move towards friendship, or mutually assured 
destruction of each other. 

The Long Term Relationship can be measured from the bar next to the Sim's
portrait, or below a Sim's portrait on the relationship page. If the bar
is green, it means that there is a positive relationship, and conversely,
red means that there is a negative relationship. The further it is from
the middle, the stronger the relationship, whether it be good or bad.

As you have learnt from the short term context, the relationship metre
will always drift back towards the centre, regardless of whether you are
friends or enemies, unless you do something about it. However, this decay
will only occur if you do not talk to that Sim in that day. As long as
you talk to them, the decay will not take place. 

Now, you can have a long term relationship with a lot of Sims, but the
ones with family are the hardest to break. It takes a lot more work
to break those than any other. 

Below are all the stages in a relationship that you can be in, defined by
the long term relationship bar. Seeing that these aren't in any order, I'll
list them in alphabetical order and work our way from A to Z. Also, when I 
mention the level of a relationship in percentage, I mean that the centre
is the 0% mark, the right end is 100%, and the left end is -100%. And you 
should be able to work your way from there.

Acquaintance         - Interact with a Sim at least once. 
Best Friend          - When the relationship goes above 80%
Best Friends Forever - The Sims are teens and you use the Best Friends
                       Forever social, AND maintain it above 60%
Disliked             - The relationship bar falls beneath -20%
Distant Friend       - When two people were friends, but the relationship 
                       falls below 40% but stays above 20%
Enemy                - Have the relationship below 0% and Declare Nemesis on
                       that Sim.
Ex                   - Use the Break Up option when you are in a committed
                       relationship. 
Ex Spouse            - Use the Divorce option when you are married
Fiancee              - Propose Marriage to the one you love. 
Friend               - When the relationship goes above 40%
Good Friend          - When the relationship goes above 60%
Partner              - Use the Going Steady social option in your relationship
Old Enemies          - Been enemies for over 14 days, or 2 weeks. 
Old Friend           - When the relationship goes above 40% 
Romantic Interest    - For this, you need to Confess your Attraction or Kiss
                       social the other Sim, have it succeed, and keep the
                       relationship above 0%
Spouse               - Your fiancee after you have become married at a proper
                       ceremony. 
Stranger             - These two Sims know about each other, but they have not
                       interacted. All relationships start at this step. 

Finally, the last thing is the visitor's privilege. Since in this game you can
enter people's homes, you will be restricted to what you can do in their
houses, determined by their relationship with you. There are basically 4
levels. The first level is the basic level, where you can do things like 
eat their food or hang out on their couch. 

This moves onto the second level, where you can start getting more leeway, 
like digging into their fridge for snacks, before the third level, in which
you can start crashing on their couch, or something like that. The finally,
the fourth level, in which you can basically live there, it is a second home.

There is a secret minus one level, in which you don't get entry to their 
home at all. And basically, below is a list of the friendship levels, and
their ranking on the scale. 

Acquaintance         - Level 1
Best Friend          - Level 3
Best Friends Forever - Level 3
Disliked             - Level -1
Distant Friend       - Level 1
Enemy                - Level -1
Ex                   - Level 2
Ex Spouse            - Level 2
Finacee              - Level 4
Friend               - Level 2
Good Friend          - Level 2
Partner              - Level 3
Old Enemies          - Level -1
Old Friend           - Level 2
Romantic Interest    - Level 2
Spouse               - Level 4
Stranger             - Level 1

However, the way you make your friends and the way to make your enemies is
completely up to you. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[11.04] Romance

Romance here is a lot like romance in the real world, well, they have to 
get their information from somewhere. And to actually start a romance, since
there is no alcohol in this game, you'll have to play the dating game from
the ground up, or rather, hit the ground running. 

Once you meet someone you like, you need to talk to them. Of course, you 
aren't going to do the exceptionally stupid thing like asking them out without
knowing them, it's a quick and easy no from there. Instead, you have to do
this the traditional way. You need to meet this strange new stranger, and 
build an acquaintance with them. 

From there, you need to build up your relationship with them, build up a nice
friendship with them. This is necessary, because in order to have them as a
romantic interest, you need to either Confess your Attraction to them or to
Kiss them, and it will only be useful if you have a high friendship with 
them. From there, it can either end in acceptance and mutual attraction, or
it can end with rejection.

Starting with the bad, you might be rejected in your approach. This will 
often fail because you simply do not have a good enough relationship with
that person. Hence why in real life, you shouldn't be asking people you 
hardly out on a date, more often than not, it will end in failure, unless you
are exceptionally charming, but the game doesn't account for that. 

Of course, after you have been rejected, you can go again. But after you
get rejected many times, you start getting into risky territory, and you
start to be thought of as Creepy, after all, a person will certainly find
someone creepy if they constantly asked them out after countless rejections.

However, being rejected doesn't mean you can't try again, you just need a 
better relationship with them. Of course, for the love all of all things
holy, do not do this in real life, the maximum a guy should ask a girl out
is twice. After you have been rejected once, you can only ask once more, 
and after that, you stop and move on, cutting your losses.

Anyhow, if you succeed, you will now have a romantic interest, and your
social options move to a new path, you will get access to more romantic
social interactions, and you can build up a more, romantic relationship
with your love interest. 

How that you have a good relationship, a nice strong relationship, a nice
strong, roman tic relationship, where do you go from there. Do you do
the honourable thing and get married, or cut and run.

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[11.05] The Good Path - Marriage

After a strong relationship, and when after you have loved someone for a 
long time, the good or honourable thing is that you get married. What you 
need to do is to propose to Go Steady, and from here, it will basically
stablise the relationship.

After it has stabalised, you are now partners. Of course, this doesn't mean
you are together now. Before you can be joined by rings, you need to propose
marriage. Of course, this game doesn't discriminate between who does the
proposing, but, if you want to make some videos, then you will, more or
less, follow tradition, and have the guy propose marriage.

Hopefully, the other party will accept, because well, if it doesn't, then
it won't end well. I mean, there are plenty of videos out there on youtube
where people have proposed, in public, and well, it didn't end well. Of
course, it is funny to us, where we are the observers, but well, I don't
think the guy who just has his heart crushed would find it very, well,
entertaining. 

After you have proposed marriag, and it has been accepted, then you will
need to start planning a ceremony. Of course, you can do it in private, 
quickly and quietly, or you can throw a nice party so you can celebrate 
in style. Either way, you will be married, and till death do you part. Or
are you going to wait that long? 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[11.06] The Bad Path - Rejection and Affairs

There is the bad path. Before and during a marriage, you can easily ruin
the marriage. You can just be a bad partner, and break the marriage with 
brute force, but that leads to negative reactions on both sides, unless you
are just plain evil. 

Or you can have an affair. Date someone on the side, and you can cheat on
them. Flirt and date another Sim. It is basically like the dating game,
except you are dating another person whilst already in a romantic 
relationship with someone else. Of course, you can confess your attraction
or kiss your new interest, and develop a romantic interest in them. But 
not this, once you are already in a relationship and you develop another
romantic interestm, then you are treading on very thin ice. 

Now that this has occured, if you are caught interacting with your new
interact in the presence of your partner, then you are in some serious
trouble. So basically, you can do whatever you want, but as long as the
partner doesn't know, well, you are in the clear. But do any of the 
following in their presence, and well, you aren't going to be in the clear,
you are going to be in the deep end, without any support. 

If you are caught flirting, then it won't be that bad. The relationship will
just take a small hit, and it can be taken care of later. The damage will
have been done, but it is only minor damage.

If you are caught hugging or kissing your romantic interest, then things
will get slightly worse. The relationship will take an even deeper hit, 
and it will take more than a few smooth words to calm things over. Worse
of all, the person being cheated upon will end up with the Betrayed 
moodlet. 

Finally, if you are caught Making Out or WooHooing the other Sim, then you
are asking to be killed. Basically, if you are caught doing those things,
then say goodbye to the relationship. I mean, a flirt, kiss or hug can be
explained away, but explain being in bed with someone else. You can't. The
relationship will basically be crippled, and basically, kill the 
relationship. Of course, the person being cheated upon gets the Betrayed
moodlet. Thing of this as taking a Sledgehammer to cut a piece of paper.

Not only does your relationship with your partner take a hit, your relations
with other Sims will take a hit. Relationships will anyone who knows the
Cheater and the person the Cheater was cheating with will take a dive. A
family member who sees the cheating will also have a diving relationship
with the cheater. 

And if you don't keep your friends close, then someone who witnesses the
act will be able to tell the person being cheated upon of the deeds done
and that will take a hit. 

If your relationship ends up being a bit shaky, either through someone
cheating or just brute negative interactions, then you can use the divorce
or break up interaction. There is no councilling in this game, if you 
break up or divorce someone, then it is done, and from then on, they will
be your ex. 

Of course, Sims don't really do their own social interaction, so if you 
want to make a soap opera out of it, you will need to do all of the 
legwork yourself, and witness the results. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[11.07] Meeting People

How do you meet people? Well, there are a hell of a lot of ways to meet 
other people. Besides the usual people walking past your house, there is a 
bit more to this. All of this will be besides family, because if you haven't
met your family, then there is something wrong. 

The first way will be the welcome wagon. This will be when you first move into
a neighbourhood, a small group of people will arrive on your doorstep, and
welcome you to the neighbourhood. This is the welcome wagon, and is the 
quickest and earliest chance you will have meet new people and make new
friends. 

Other than that, you will basically need to move around town. Community lots
are a great place to meet new people, you can talk when them, and generally
have a good time. And it doesn't cost you a dime in order to go to these
places, you can just call a taxi. 

Alternatively, you can use the computer to chat with people randomly over
the internet, not advised for real life. Or you can use the phone to keep
in touch with people. 

Even going to work, you are bound to meet new people. So basically, there is
not shortage of ways in which you can meet new people. No shortage. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[11.08] Having a Baby

Having a baby is relatively simple. You can do this the easy way, and go
through adoption, and have a baby that way, or you, and your spouse, and 
try to have a baby. 

Well, we all know the drill on how you have babies. So basically, you just 
need to use the Try for Baby interaction with your significant partner of
the opposite sex, and if you are successful, you will get a little chime 
after the deed, and that will denote that it was successful.

The day after the Sim is pregnant, will, it won't be as much in terms of
pain, it will be spent in the toilet. Basically, your female Sim will spend
her time vomiting in the toilet, the morning sickness part. Basically they
will spend the first day of their pregnancy in the toilet, but from there,
nothing much will happen. Of course, prepare yourself for the barrage of
negative moodlets that will occur from this.

On the second day of the pregnancy, it will become evident that a Sim is
now pregnant. Their belly will stick out that much more. The puking will
stop a bit, but instead, the Sim's back will be aching, due to the extra
weight that is in front of them. Also, the wishes of the parents will 
start to change, they will be more geared towards children, rather than 
other things that are going on in their life. 

The third day is the final day of the pregnancy, and the child will be 
born on this day. It will be born late in the day, and when it is time, 
the mother will be taken to the hospital and they won't leave until she
comes out with the baby. 

The baby facial features will be a mix of the parents, it plays heavily
on real life genetics and the Punnet's square. Of course, while most babies
will be a mixture of their parents, sometimes, there will be differences
and mutations in the genes. 

However, it is to note that you can influence the traits of the baby. The
baby is born with 2 traits, and what you do throughout the pregnancy will
determine the traits. If the mother maintains a positive mood throughout
the pregnancy, such as massaging her sore back or letting her eat when
she is hungry, then the baby will be born with 2 positive traits, but if
she is constantly miserable, prepare yourself for 2 miserable traits. Also,
reading the pregnancy books that you can pick up at the bookstore will
also increase the chance of having positive traits over negative traits.

You can also influence the amount of kids that will be born. By listening
to the children's music station on the radio or watching the children's
channel on the TV, the chances of having twins or triplets will increase
a bit more, so it will be more likely to result in twins or triplets.

Gender can also be influenced. Eat 3 apples throughout the pregnancy to 
increase the chance that the offspring will be a little boy. If you want a
little girl, eat 3 watermelons throughout the pregnancy to increase the
chance of that happening. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[11.09] Parties

Parties are basically house parties, you can throw one like in the previous
Sim games, nothing much has changed. However, there are some new features
that you can play with.

Now, besides who you can invite, you can also do a fair amount of other
things. You can now set a venue. Of course, it could be your house, but you
can hire out community lots for a parties as well, for a small fee. It isn't
that great, but location, location, location. Also, you can set the dress
code for the party, should it be a formal party or a casual party? And you
will have to set the time, BUT it has to take place at least 2 hours after
your current time. So if it is 5pm, the earliest you can hold the party is
7pm. 

There are several different parties that you can hold. And below they are. 

A House Party is a normal party. It basically is an occasion for people to
get together, socialise, and have some fun. This is your basic type of
party. 

A Funeral is less of a party. It is more of getting to have the people who
knew the recently deceased well to come over and mourn together. It is like
a normal party, except that the social interactions are more geared towards
talking about how nice and friendly that person was. 

A Wedding is well, a house party except there is a marriage ceremony 
involved. Basically, people come over to watch the happy couple tie the
knot and say "I Do". Or whatever they say, I don't really know.

A Birthday will be a birthday, the event is centered around the person who is
moving onto a new age group. And if you choose to, you can purchase a 
birthday cake to make even more special.

Finally, there are Campaign Fundraisers, where if you are in the Politics 
career, you can start a party with the motive of securing donations. Instead
of a boost to your relationship after the party, depending on how good it
was, the better the party, the better the donation you will get as a result.

Now, about the party itself. You've sent out the invitations, so why didn't
some people turn up? There are a few reasons. One could be that they are
at work, but the more likely response is that you don't have a good enough
relationship with them, and they won't turn up. The higher your long term
relationship with them is, the more likely they are to turn up. 

How to have a good party? Well, basically it is a matter of socialising,
the more there is, the more successful the party is. Well, think about it,
if a party has everyone sitting down staring at each other, one can hardly
call that a success, compared to a party where everyone is chatting each
other up. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[12.01] Babysitter

Basically, if you don't know what an NPC is, it basically means Non-Player
Character, or a Sim that basically does something in the game, yet you cannot
control them. In this case, they are the following. 

Anyway, the babysitter is a random teen from around the town who will look 
after your little kids, from babies to children. They will keep your little
ones fed whilst you take a night out on the town, and they will make sure
that their needs are kept up. It is important that you call for a baby-sitter
if you are going to leave the children alone, because if you do leave them 
alone, at home, for a prolonged period of time, then the social worker will
come along for a visit, and needless to say, you will be missing a few kids
after you finish your trip about town. 

Cost of Visit - §75 per visit

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[12.02] Burglar

The Burglar is exactly what his name suggests, he is an adult or elder who
has decided that it is far easier in these uncertain economic times to rob
you and sell the crap on eBay, rather than actually going to work. As such,
during the night, you will have the chance that a robber will come along and
try to rob you.

Normally, they will enter your house and start looking for the most expensive
items on the lot and start with them. If you do not catch them, they will 
take several expensive items and leave the house.

If you do catch them, then you have a variety of options. You can call the 
police and get them to visit the robber. The police will arrive and fight
with the robber, and if the officer wins, you get all your stolen goods back,
if you do not, then you won't be getting it back. 

Or you can just fight them yourself. You can attack the robber, provided you
either are a police officer yourself or have the Brave trait, and depending
on your athletic skill, you can fight and beat them. Win, and besides a nice
moodlet and you get your items back, if you lose, well say goodbye. 

Or you could just invest in a burglar alarm, and once the burglar enters the
room where there is a burglar alarm, it will go off and automatically call
for the police, and they will turn up to give a fight. 

A thing to note is that when the police arrest the burglar, if they do, then
they will be placed next to the car when the officer does a scan of the 
house. Here, you can release the burglar to get a boost to the relationship
that you just started. Needless to say, the officer won't be pleased. 

Finally, it is to note that you can get a hidden trait from having a child
with the burglar, your kids will randomly inherit the ability to sneak around
the place. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[12.03] Firefighter

The firefighter is basically, well, a firefighter. They are there to fight
fires. Basically, when there is a fire on your lot, then you will need to
call a professional firefighter to help you fight the fire. They will fight
the fire a lot better than a normal Sim using an extinguisher, and they means
that they will put out the fire a hell of a lot quicker. 

Of course, you can call them when the fire erupts, but it is far simpler to
actually have a smoke alarm, which automatically calls the firefighters 
when there is a fire. This is best placed in rooms that there is a possibility
of a fire breaking out, so mainly rooms with fireplaces and the kitchen. 

After the put out the fire, then you can go along and have a small chat with
them, develop a relationship with them, before they leave back for work. There
is, like with the burglar, an advantage of having kids with the firefighter,
the kids have the ability to inherit two specific traits, they can have the
Immune to Fire trait, which is exactly what it does, and the Pyromaniac trait,
which allows them to set fire on things randomly.

However, do not call for the firefighter when there is no fire to fight, you
will be slapped with a §500 fine for pissing them off. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[12.04] Maid

The Cleaning Service this time is a bit different, they aren't paid for the
amount of hours they do, it is a flat §125 fee each time they visit, so it
is more of an incentive to live like a pig, and have a very unclean, and a 
very large house. 

The maid does what they have to, they will make your bed, take out the 
trash, recycle old newspapers, clean up all the trash around the house, and
clean all dirty surfaces. Basically, they are to clean up your house.

Again, like the firefighter, you can wait until they finish and have a little
chat with them. They will also give traits to your kids if you decide to
have them, with them.... and it is basically the Clean trait, where it will
take more actions from them to make something dirty. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[12.05] Mailman

The mailman will deliver, ah, the mail. Letters, bills, cut gems, priceless
ingots, well, all of that they will deliver. Nothing else about them really.
Of course, after they drop off their package, they will hang around for you
to talk to them, but really, if you decide to have kids when them, they don't
get a special trait or anything. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[12.06] Newspaper Kid

This little kid comes along at 7 in the morning, without fail, and delivers
the dail newspaper. It is a great chance for your kids to make a new friend,
and for some reason, the newspaper is free. One thing bothers me, how do they
deliver all those newspapers over town, and still get to school on time. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[12.07] Pizza Delivery

Well, this is the fastest way to get some food. The Pizza Delivery service. 
Basically, you can call for a pizza, and it will be delivered to your doorstep
in a short period of time, for the small fee of §30. This is useful because
it will always give an Amazing Meal moodlet after eating the pizza, and of 
course, if you cannot finish a whole pizza by yourself, then you can just 
leave it in the fridge as leftovers. 

And like most other Sims, you can befriend them, but alas, there are no 
special traits that you can obtain from them, and there isn't any special
discount for you. Look on the bright side, you don't have to tip them. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[12.08] Police

The Police, besides being a bad, are the law enforcers in this game. They will
only be useful when there is a burglar on the lot, to whom they will quickly
get into a fight with in order to arrest them. If they win the fight, then 
the burglar is arrested, if they lose, well, the burglar goes free.

See, the problem here is that the police, well, they would have access to 
guns, yet they will decide to take on dangerous bandits with nothing but their
fists. Not even a taser or a beanbag shotgun. How disappointing.

Anyway, once the burglar has been caught, you can talk to the police officer 
and build up a relationship with them. This is interesting, because if you
have children with them, they will have the ability to take on burglars when
they are older.

Like firefighters, there is a §500 fine if you call the police for absolutely
no reason. And no, there aren't any other crimes that you can call them for.
Only robberies. No domestic assaults, murder, etc. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[12.09] Repo Man

Basically, this man will only turn up if you do not pay your bills. Armed with
a special repo gun, he will go into your house and suck up items to pay the
bill with. So in exchange for the bill, your items will be taken away, suck 
up forever in the vortex of nothingness. 

However, he will not take away the necessary items for survival, so you don't
really need to worry that your bed will go mission, or your front door, or the
toilet. That would just be weird. 

Of course, you can socialise with him before he takes off, but he kind of 
hates people who don't pay their bills on time, and you happened not to have
paid your bills on time, so you should be able to work your logic from there. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[12.10] Social Worker

The social worker is another Sim that you really don't want to see. Well,
the first time you will see them is the good time, this is when they will 
come to your house to drop off a kid that you have adopted. For this, you
will be able to talk to them, even get the know the social worker.

However, the second time you will see them is the worst kind of time. This
is where you have neglected your children, toddlers or babies, and they
will have come along and taken all the kids away, seeing that you are clearly
an unfit parent. And you won't see them again, just to make sure. However,
you will have clear warnings that you are a poor parent, so it isn't a 
surprise out of no where when they take your kids away. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[12.11] Technician

Finally, there is the technician. This guy should ojnly be called, for the 
flat fee of §50, where they will come over to your house and fix all those
broken items. Broken appliances? Disabled electronics? Leaking showers? 
Clogged up toilet?

Well, if any of those things happen, and none of your Sims as good with play
with tools, then it is time to give the technician a call and let them take
care of the repair work for you. Of course, after work, they will be able
to stay around for a quick chat.

It is funny to note that they will always have, ALWAYS HAVE, a 99% chance
of successfully repairing an item that uses electricity. That last 1% is
death. Guess how. I always found that death funny for a technician. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[13.01] Places of Employment

This section, section 13, is designed to take you around Sunset Valley. While
most you can do in game, here is a list of exactly what you can do around 
town.

Anyway, this section deals with buildings around town where people work. 


--==City Hall==--

This building is where all the Sims in the Politics career will be based 
in. Therefore, it is quite an important building, and also, your Sims will
be able to take Charisma courses here for the small fee of §400 per class.
Also, if you really like, you will be able to take a tour of city hall, of
course, only if you are interested.

What is interesting is that sometimes, there are riots outside the city
hall. Be on the lookout for that, it's an interesting sight. 


--==Doo Peas Corporate Towers==--

This building is the home to two different careers, it is the home to the
Business and Journalism careers. Although it may seem at odds with one
another, the two careers are more interlinked than you would like to 
think. All that advertising on television doesn't get there if no one is
funding it. 

This building is also useful if you want to start a writing career, this 
building will allow you to take a writing class, for the normal fee of §400. 


--==Fort Gnome Military Base==--

This is where all the self-defence forces of Sunset Valley are housed, they
work in this military base, and thus, it is naturally the home of the 
Military career. Being in the military, you need to be able to make repairs
on the battlefield, and as such, there are classes teaching handiness for 
the normal fee of §400.

And there is an option for a tour of the military base, but of course, there
isn't exactly any free access to the newest jet fighter. 


--==Hogan's Deep Fried Diner==--

The Culinary career is a funny career, where it has two possible places of
work. As such, those in the culinary career can start here, and it is 
possible to get a few cooking courses here, costing §400 a pop. However, 
there are other uses for the diner, it is a place where food is served.

The prices are a bit cheaper here, at the diner, but the food quality will
be a bit lower than that of the Bistro. And the good thing is that you don't
need to wear formal gear to dine here. 


--==Landgraab Industries Science Facility==--

This is the home to, as you can surely guess, the Science career. Home to 
some rare fish specimens in the pond, you can also take a tour of the 
science facility, however, you don't actually get to touch anything, we 
can't have you touching beakers full of nitric acid and drinking it.

Also, you are able to take both Gardening and Logic classes here, and they 
cost their standard price of §400 a pop. And finally, when you catch insects
from around town, you have the ability to donate them to the facility, and
they will pay you for it. So it isn't exactly a donation. 


--==Little Corsican Bistro==--

This is the second place where your Sims can take on the Culinary career.
Of course, like the diner, this is also a place where you can take on some 
nice cooking lessons, per the standard price of §400 a class. What makes
this different to the diner is the dining itself. 

The dining here is a but more high quality, it will give a moodlet after
you have eaten here. You even get to eat outside, but there are a few things
that you need to know. First of all, you can imagine that the food is a 
bit more expensive here. And also, you need to be in formal gear to dine 
here, something I'd probably fail at. 


--==Llama Memorial Stadium==--

The Stadium is, as you can guess, the home to the Athletic career, it is 
where all your athletes training for the next big game. Like most of the
other buildings, it is a place to develop your skills, in this case, you 
can build up your Athletic skills by attending the class for the normal
fee of §400.

Also, you will have the ability to attend a soccer game, for a relatively
small fee §60, and it provides a moodlet as well. You will, on occasions,
not be able to watch a football match, but a concert instead, but it is
no less fun. 


--==Outstanding Citizen Warehouse Corp.==--

This is something very wrong with a building that needs to promote that 
they are a legal business. And that there is, this is the home to the 
Criminal career. 

If you are a special agent in law enforcement, you will be able to raid this
warehouse for some goodies. But even if you are not in law enforcement, you
will be able to find a lot of nice collectables around the warehouse. 


--==Police Department==--

It is what it is, this is the police department, and here, as you can 
expect, it is the workplace of the Law Enforcement career. This is probably
the most boring of all the workplace buildings, but at least you get some
nice perks, like raiding the above building.


--==Sacred Spleen Memorial Hospital==--

It is a hospital, and as you will be able to guess, this is the workplace of
the Medicine career. Like the Police Department, this is a very boring 
place, but what is nice is that you will be visiting this building if you
have a bundle of joy that is waiting to be delivered.


--==Wilsonoff Community Theatre==--

No, this isn't exactly for movies, it is actually the home of music, and as
such, it will be home to the Music career. As such, you will be able to 
take some classes on improving your Guitar skill, for the small fee of §400.
Of course, it wouldn't be interesting unless you could see a show, and you
can, for the price of §40.

And you can tour the building, but it just won't be any fun. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[13.02] Everfresh Delights Supermarket

This is one of the most important stores in town, this is where you will 
be able to purchase foodstuffs that you will need, for, well, I dunno, to
survive. This is a useful store, here, you will be able to purchase fresh 
produce and meat, and it is useful since you can sell fresh produce and
fish back to the supermarket. Not to mention that you can take some fishing
classes here for the cost of §400. 

Anyway, below is a list of all the items that you can purchase from the 
store, as well as the respective section that the item is placed under.

[13.03] Divisadero Budget Books

This is the book store for your town, and it is a relatively important store,
seeing if you want some sheet music or cooking books to improve your skills, 
you will need to come here, seeing the library will not stock those books. 
Books are useful, they are entertaining and educating. Below is a list of
all the books you can purchase.

Note that it will not contain books that your Sims have written, seeing you 
can give those any title you want.

[13.04] Sharma Day Spa

The Day Spa is generally a place to relax, this is where you can come down
to unwind after a long work out, or a long week or day at work. You can get
a large range of relaxing services, and that can be relative cheap, or they
can get pricey. However, there is a good reason to get these services though,
you will get a nice moodlet, and the more expensive the treatment, the longer
that moodlet will last. 

These are the services that you can purchase, and their respective prices.

[13.05] Community Pools

There are two community swimming pools, and unlike the pools in real life, it
won't cost you to use them. This is a place where you can get a little time
in the sun, or a little splash. 

--==Le Petit Shark Pool Centre==--

This pool, as scripted by the game, is more centred towards families, so it is
a nice place for your little ones to make some friends, and that is always a
good thing, friends for life. 

As a family pool, and seeing this is a family game, there are a lot of people
at this pool. Look on the bright side, this is a large pool, so you can still
swim with relative ease, somwhat.


--==Lofty Cerulean Blue Pool==--

This pool is the opposite of the above, instead of families, there tends to
be a fair amount of older Sims, and well, more of a singles place, than a 
family pool, so picking up potential partners is a lot easier here. 

The pool is not as big, but at least it isn't as crowded. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[13.06] Community Parks

There are a few parks that are your Sims can relax and unwind. This is quite
useful, a nice place to converse with your neighbours, and a nice place to
look around for seeds. 

--==Central Park==--

Well, it is Central Park because it is in the exact centre of town, this
is the town square. This is where all your neighbours will come down, and
what is good is that you can get a fair amount of tips here when you decide
to play the guitar. And you can make a fair amount of money as well. 

There is more to do than converse here, you can play games of chess, there are
ppols of water in whcih you can go fishing in, collect the variety of seeds
lying around, or have a nice grilled lunch.


--==Marywood Glen==--

This park is a smaller park, with less traffic, but it is a lot closer to 
the residential areas, so think of it as the local park. Of course, you can
still play chess and have a nice grilled lunch, but other than that and the 
variety of seeds and insects, there isn't much for you to do. 


--==Old Pier Beach==--

This is the pier on the beach, and whilst there is a tad of green, this is 
more or less a place to enjoy, a nice time to work on your tan. The good 
thing about the pier is that you will be able to get some decent food here
for a low fee. This makes it better as a food source, and a place to play 
with a chess board. 


Also around are a variety of fishing holes, and whilst they are like parks,
they have less in terms of features, but they are used for a single reason,
fishing. 

 * Crystal Springs
 * Pinochie Pond
 * Recurve Strand
 * Stoney Falls
 * Summer Hill Springs
 * Sunnyside Strand

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[13.07] Places of Interest

There are a few special places that aren't listed above, that are useful to
pay a visit to.

--==28 Hour Wellness Gym==--

This is one of the best cheap places to visit. This is basically a gym, where
you can work out on cardio machines, or take a swim. Basically, there is a lot
of gym equipment here, and here is a place to use it, free of charge. There
is no such thing as gym membership. 

There are few things you can do here besides work out. Note that everyone
here cares about fitness, so this is the perfect place to make friends if 
your little dudes are into fitness. And the next thing is that when you work
out, the most important thing to take care of is hygiene. That will take a 
beating when you work out, so make sure you work on it.


--==Cemetery==--

This is another place to visit, not for the mourning of the dead, but at 
night, in come the ghosts, and they are fun to talk to, I mean, how is it 
like being dead? Not only that, there are a hell of a lot of rare and unknown
seeds around this area, so make sure you look carefully. 

However, the main attraction is the Mausoleum. This is a place you can tour, 
I mean, it is basically a building full with the dead. However, you can 
explore this place, and you can find a hell of a lot of neat items here, but
there is a catch, sometimes, you might get an unexpected shock. However, if
you want to explore the tombs of the dead, make sure your Sims have the little
Brave trait with them. Cause if they aren't, you better start praying that
have played a lot of Oblivion, or they will get the Horrified moodlet. 


--==Community School of the Gifted==--

This well, is the school, so it isn't exactly anything special. Of course,
there is one reason for adults to go here, and that is that they will be 
able to attend a painting class, for the small fee of §400. After all, you
don't pay school fees, and the government doesn't provide non-essential 
funding. 


--==Papyrus Memorial Library==--

This is where all the books are stored, and knowledge is free, not a right
that you must purchase. On the shelves are all the books that you can purchase
at the book store, as well as a few books that your Sims have written, 
including some flops, but mainly bestsellers. 

There is more than just books, there is a little play room for the kids to 
play around with in case they get bored of reading, or waiting for you to
finish the latest blockbuster novel. Like the gym, this is going to be 
crowded somewhat, but again, this is a good place to talk about literature, 
and books in general.

Note that there are things you won't find in the library, and that will be
the one off books, which are sheet music and cooking books. Those are one
use, and you can't hog the library all to yourself. 


--==Sunset Institute of Modern Art==--

This is the place of art, this is where all the art can be viewed, free of
charge. Of course, your Sim cannot be one of those who Cannot Stand Art, or
else we would have a problem. Other than that, this is a place to talk about
art, so who knows, this is the place you can find the love of your life over
some art.

If you are lucky, you can see some of the paintings that you have painted 
hung here, next to all the other art painted by world famous painters. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[13.08] Investments

You can invest in businesses around the town, and yes, this is a new feature.
This is where you can spend some of your own money for a partnership in the
business, or if you are really wealthy, you can purchase the building. 

So what is the point of spending some of your money to invest in a business?
Simple, by investing in these buildings, you will be getting some of the 
profits that the business generates a week, and if you own it outright, then
you will get all of the profits that it makes.

The amount that it makes vary from week to week. Some weeks are good, some are
bad, and as such, sometimes you get a lot in returns, sometimes, you get 
nothing. But as a rule of thumb, the more expensive it is to invest in the
building, the more will you will get in returns. 

And below is the list of all the buildings you can take a venture in and the
cost of partnership, and outright ownership. It will be listed as the name
of the building, the cost of partnership, and then the cost of ownership.

[14.01] Insects

Collectables are new in this game, basically, there is a place in your 
skills journal dedicated for collections. There are several different 
collections, there are those for insects, metals, gems and space rocks. It
is your goal to collect them all, but to make it fair, there are some that 
are easy to find, and there are some that will be difficult to find. So if
you have the Collection Helper item, it would be very useful here, mainly 
because you will need it to speed things up.

The first set of collectable items are going to be insects, which are 
actually divided into two groups, Butterflies and Beatles. I think everyone
knows the difference between a butterfly and a beatle, one is in the air 
and the other is on the ground.

Both insects can be caught in the wild, but the more you collect and the 
further away the location you collect them in, the better your chances of
getting rare insects. When caught, you can donate them, which really means
sell them, to the Science Facility for a small profit, or you can keep them
and place them in your house, which gives an environmental boost to your
home. 

Basically, it isn't hard to find either of them. One is crawling on the 
ground, which is visible on a shiny white path, and the other is in the air,
causing a nice distraction. 

Below is a list of both all the beatles and butterflies, as well as their
selling price, well, lowest price you will get from the Science Facility.

[14.02] Gems

Gems are just that, surprisingly, there are a hell of a lot of rare gems that
can just be found on the ground around town. Basically, they are little rocks
with little coloured pointy bits protruding from it, and they are all around
town. Of course, it will be easy to find the common ones, but the rarer the 
gem, the more valuable it is.

However, when you get the gem, it will be relatively useless, because you need
to get a specialist to cut it for you. For a set fee depending on the type of
cut you want, you will be able to send off the gem to a specialist to increase
the value of the gem.

There are 8 different gem cuts, and whilst only the Emerald cut is available
to you initially, the more cuts you have performed, the more cuts will be
available for you. The Oval cut is available after 4, Pear after 8, Plumbbob
after 16, Marquis after 30, Crystal Ball after 45 and Brillant after 60. And
when you have used each cut at least once, the Heart cut will be available.

Below is the list of all gems, and all the different cuts as well. Note that
value multiplier means now many times the value of the gem is multiplied after
the cut is performed. 

And by Value at Min, it means the value of the gem at the minimum weight, or
the lowest value it could possibly attain. Value at Max weight means the 
highest possible price you can get for the gem at maximum weight. And this is
the raw gem, before it is cut.

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

[14.03] Precious Metals

There are 6 precious metals, well, they are found in their ore form, and you
then need to send it off to a smelter, who will smelt it down, for a fixed
fee of §40, regardless of the ore. This will turn the relatively valueless
ore into something that is a bit more valuable, an ingot that will get a 75%
increase in value after it is smelted. 

Again, rarity means that you will need to constantly look hard to find the 
ore that you want, the plutonium ore, which is somehow, safe to pick up.

Like gems, the metals are determined by weight, the heavier it is, the more
it is valued. There are 5 metals, Iron, Silver, Gold, Palladium and Plutonium,
and they are valued in that order.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------
|   Metal   | Min. Weight | Value At Min. | Max Weight | Value At Max |
|-----------+-------------+---------------+------------+--------------|
| Iron      |      1      |      7        |     52     |      20      |
| Silver    |      1      |      25       |     52     |      35      |
| Gold      |      1      |      40       |     52     |      120     |
| Palladium |     80      |      300      |     300    |      500     |
| Plutonium |     0.1     |      1000     |     5      |      1800    |
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[14.04] Space Meteorites

Finally, the final collectable is the meteors that fall out of the sky. These
come in three sizes, the larger, the better. However, once you get the rock,
you need to identify it. However, there is a difference between these little
rocks and the other collectables. Gems and Metals will always increase in
value when your cut or smelt them, however, if you analyse the space rocks,
there is a level of risk. There is a chance that you may identify the rock 
as a valuable piece of rock, and therefore, the value is increased, but there
is also a risk that it is less valuable than you thought and it lowers in 
value. 

This is the element of risk, because once you analyse it, you cannot analyse
it. There is an exception to the rule in which what can be done, can be 
undone, it seems. 

Below is a list of the different sizes that the space rock could be, and 
all the different types of rocks that could be the result after you analyse
your rock, and their respective effects on the value of the meteorite. 

 -----------------------------------------------------------------
| Size  | Min. Weight | Value At Min. | Max Weight | Value At Max |
|-------+-------------+---------------+------------+--------------|
| Small |      1      |      10       |     65     |      30      |
| Large |     100     |      50       |    1050    |      200     |
| Huge  |    50000    |     2000      |   1001000  |     4500     |

[15.01] Opportunities

Remember those chance cards from The Sims 2, where you could pick an outcome
and get a reward out of it. Well, they are gone now, and they are now 
replaced with Opportunities. Basically, the premise is that you will have
to perform a task, most of them by a certain date or time, and in return, you
will get a reward.

The rewards vary from job performance, to money, to relationship bonuses with
other Sims. This can be very useful, I mean, everyone loves money right? This
is on top of whatever bonus that the task my provide.

There are three different sets of opportunities, there are skill based 
opportunities, career based opportunities and special opportunities. The skill
based are well, skill based, and they are normally activated and given out
when you are performing a skill related task, like painting with the painting
skill.

Career based opportunities are career based, and you will get these at 
work. These will nearly always give a boost to your job performance, and at
the high levels, this is nearly indispensible. 

And finally, the special opportunities. Theses are obtained mainly by reading
the newspaper and looking for the weekly events that you can go to. These 
are the easiest to obtain, and whilst the events are still random, you have
some sort of control.

Now, about the opportunities themselves. You can only have 1 opportunity 
from each set active at one time. Therefore, you can only have 1 Career, 1
Skill and 1 Special Opportunity active at one point in time. The next thing
is that the opportunities can be cancelled at any given time with a simple
right click. Without punishment. You can do it with impunity. But don't 
waste a good opportunity. 

*~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~*
[15.02] Special Opportunities

There are the special opportunities that you obtain through the newspaper or
through the phone.

reward that you get when you complete it successfully.

c,h,e,a,t,c,c.c,o,m. Remove the commas.

!Before you Email me, read everything in this Contact Information section and!
!check the guide. If the information is already listed, your email will be   !
!promptly deleted. 							     !
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

E-Mail Me, and for the love of all that isn't sacred, make sure that the title
of the game is smacked into place. IF THERE IS NO TITLE ON THE MESSAGE, IT 
WILL NOT BE READ, AND PROMPTLY DELETED. Also, email with courtesy. If you just
hurl abuse, I will promptly hurl more abuse back, and save it so the entire
world can abuse you and see your stupidity. 

When you write the Email, you have to do so in English, and English only. No
foreign languages allowed, Chinese, French, Spanish, Antarctic Penguin and so
forth, mainly because I won't be able to understand it. 

There will be absolutely NO INTERNET SPEAK IN ANY EMAILS. Seriously, I will
not read emails full of lols, rofls or the like. No lazy English either. I 
won't read crap like "Hw Tis in Gme" because it is lazy and inconsiderate. But
that doesn't mean you send me a business letter detailing what information you
want to know either. 

Finally, if you see that there is something wrong in this FAQ, or something 
that you think should be included in it, please send it in, the worse you can
do is to have it rejected, but if I think it is a good addition, I'll add it
with the next update as well as give you credit for the addition. Corrections
are always welcome.

I will also NOT RESPOND to the following:

 * Phishing Sites
 * Attempted Scams
 * Mass Spamming
 * Forward Messages
 * Advertising
 * Technical Issues
 * Illegal Activities
 * Unrelated Emails to the Game
 * Emails about Another Game

All problems with technical issues to do with the gameplay such as bugs and
glitches should be sent to the developer or publisher, or look for fixes or
ways to avoid it. All technical issues with hardware should be sent to the 
manufacturer of the piece of hardware in question. 

The secret email address is:

hillsdragon13 [at] [ho.tm.ail] [dot] [co.m]

Now, the legend:

[at]        = @
[ho.tm.ail] = Remove the .'s
[dot]       = .
[co.m]      = Remove the .'s

If you feel generous, you can send money via Paypal to that address. It is
completely optional, but I'm curious to see how much I can milk, I mean make
out of this. All donations are appreciated, seeing I have to pay for the 
game this guide is for, and that does cost money, more since I'm faced with
the outrageous prices found in Australia. 

It may be a pain in the ass, but most smart people could figure out the real
email address. The problem is that people would normally Ctrl+F to find the
email address without reading the relevant guidelines, as well spamming sites
which always find their way to my inbox. 

Also, do not add me to your MSN, Yahoo or any other instant messaging system
because you will be blocked and deleted permanently. Also, I will not accept
invites to be your Facebook friend, or join any other social networking site
because all invites will be rejected.

[C] Webmaster Information

This is where all the sites that this guide can appear on are listed. If the
site name is not on this list, that means that either they are accepted by
me but not listed, due to logistical reasons (this is the same copyright 
section as all the other guides, and no point listing a Civ 4 site on a Sims
game), or they are not allowed outright. 

Anyway, POINT OUT ALL SITES NOT LISTED HERE. It will be up to me what site is
allowed or disallowed.

www.GameFAQs.com  
www.NeoSeeker.com 
www.SuperCheats.com 

NeoSeeker and SuperCheats will have the guides a full day after it appears on

GameFAQs itself, so if you are itching for the newest version, please check
www.GameFAQs.com first.

It will NEVER BE ALLOWED TO APPEAR ON

Why? Because they stole some of my works before, and I will not forget that.
No amount of goodwill will be able to repair what you have done.
