1. Getting To Know Your Sim

Jumping straight in here...for those of you who played The Sims for PC or 
console (the 
original), you'll get the gist of what The Sims is about.  MAXIS broke their backs 
makin' sure it came out great and they still are making the new Sims game:

Urbz: Sims In The City

Cool Fact: You'll find these facts all through this guide.  Usually they're just a 
fact, but sometimes could hold valuable info for the current topic.

Here's a run-down on creating a sim...

The start is giving your sim a last and first name.

Choose a star sign or fine-tune the details yourself.

Play dress-up.  Or just let your imagination run free.

Cool Fact: When a new sim rings the bell, greet them.  You'll unlock a new 
piece of 

Give your sim a shave.  Or a freeky hairstyle.  Maybe an earring.

The clothing and head has nothing to do with the sim.  The PERSONALITY is 
what counts.

Here's the best personality for any sim:

Of all the things to sacrifice, neat is one of them.  Neat just decides if the sim 
cleans up stuff automatically.

Outgoing sims want to socialise more.  Shy sims will have an easier time 
alone, as the outgoing ones have their social bar decay faster.

Lazy sims have a hard time getting out of bed or staying standing.  Their 
score goes down faster.

More playful sims need fun since the fun score goes down faster.

Another one to sacrifice.  Nice just determines if a NPS (Non-Playable-Sim)will 
out positive or negative reactions to other sims.

Cool Fact: Outgoing sims love the Romance Channel on TV, Active sims watch 
the Action 
channel, Playful sims like the Cartoon channel, and non-Nice sims watch the 


2. Figurin' Out What's Wrong

This part is all about the motives.  First we'll cover the cheapest ways to keep 
motives high.

HUNGER: Buy a Refridgerator and a microwave.  When a sim has at least 
three cooking 
points, throw in a stove.  The phone is good for Pizza.

HYGIENE: Get a shower, and put a sink in the kitchen.

ENERGY: Buy the cheapest bed (Spartan Special)or at least a loveseat 
couch (3-seater).

SOCIAL: A phone is good for calling friends.

COMFORT: A chair, of course.  A bathtub will ensure comfort with hygiene, and 
toilets provide a small dash of comfort.

BLADDER: Duh, whadda you fink?  A toilet, sheesh.  Of course, you could save 
money, if you LIKE wetting the floor and embarassing your sim.

FUN: Get the cheapest TV you can afford, right off the bat.  A stereo can be 
good when 
you have the cash.

ROOM: Put plenty of windows and make sure there are no urine puddles, 
trash, dirty 
plates or anything of the sort around.

Sims have their own way of telling you something smells fishy...

HUNGER: Sims will grab their stomach and point to their mouth.

HYGIENE: Sims will smell something, take a sniff at an armpit, then..."Ew!"

ENERGY: Sims will topple then wake up.

SOCIAL: Sims will cry.

COMFORT: Sims will crouch and put their hands over their heads.

BLADDER: Sims will grab their crotch.  Things get tense and, in a moment, 

FUN: Sims will look around and make a motion which looks like a glance at a 

Cool Fact: Apart from these symptoms, a speech bubble will appear over their 
with a picture of the problem.

3. Movin' Out Of Mom's House

The Bustin' Out story part.
Starting the game, your sim finds him/herself at a place similar to Club Rubb.  
A sim 
of the opposite sex appears, and calls out to your sim.  After a brief kissing 
session, Mom appears.  You really need therapy.

Waking up, your sim finds that Malcolm is stealing your scooter!  Mom tells you 
that he 
is taking stuff from everyone around.  Time to climb a career ladder.

Activate double speed-
Reward: Money
Press R to complete the goal.

Use the toilet
Reward: Maid on the phone
Select the toilet and press A on Use.

Eat something to fill hunger
Reward: More Money
After Mom cooks food, select the plate and press A on Get A Plate.  If your sim 
hungry, (s)he will do it automatically.

Do something fun
Reward: Even More Money
Watch the fish, watch TV, listen to the music, or just read a book until the goal 

Look in the newspaper for a job
Reward: Your scooter, Dudley's Trailer (Move/Visit) or Mimi's Place (Move/Visit)
Select the newspaper, then select Find A Job.  Either Mimi or Dudley will arrive 
your scooter depending on the job you took.

Cool Fact: While you're at Mom's House, stock up on cooking points and 
points (Bookcase), Creative points (Art Canvas), and Charisma points (mirror).


4. A Bit About Free Play

In Free Play, you have no goals to do.  You just play...freely!  Although, you can't 
visit other places in Free Play, which is a bummer.

Cool Fact: In The last Sims games, there were about six or seven Free Play 
In the Bustin' Out version, there's only three.  Pretty stupid.

You start off with 20,000 Simoleons (currency in sim games), which actually, is 
enough to build and fill a small house.  If You moved into Free Play Lot 1 or 2, 
didn't Destroy Lot, then you have a better chance of affording better items.

Cool Fact: Around 9 every morning, the newspaper girl comes.  And every three 
around 1, the bill comes.

There is one cool thing about Free Play.  You get totally different careers from 
main game.


5. Mad Scientist Career Fast Track

This part is for all you bummed out players out there who just want to get to 
Mansion quickly.
