Ok,when you first start to play The Sims Deluxe Edition it's like..."What do I do?"...right?You have to first learn how to play the game.That's why they created a house for you in the first neighborhood.It's a tutorial and no you can't buy that house even though I have no clue why you would want a house like that in the first place cas I sure wouldn't especially when I can create an even better one.After you go to the tutorial and learn how to play the basic steps you then are going to want to start your first family.So then you go on top and go to creating/moving a family. 2.Creating A Family Now when you are creating a family you have to rememeber to make them perfect your first time because if you save your family you can't change thier statistics after you create them.Now I don't go for the perfect name because then it wouldn't be a fun game.Ok it would be but it adds a little more spice to it:) NOw the first thing you do is give them a last name.(Remember the people in your family can be gay or lesbians)Aftre they get a last name go to add new sim.Then give his/her first name.The you're gonna have to design what the person looks like.After you do that you have to give em' a personality.WARNING:You have a limited amount of points so use them wisely.If you give your person alot of points for neatness then they are really going to be neat or if you give them very little points for activeness then they'll be very lazy!After that you can add more people if you want. 3.Moving In A Family When you move in a family it means you're giving them a house.You're not going to be getting the big houses in the begining...unless you read the cheats section...so keep reading on.When you pick your small house some of them have roofs and things in em' and some don't.If you're going to build a house then you're going to have to use your $$$money$$$ wisely.To learn more about building got to building mode. 4.Modes Now if you're wonderin what modes are...they are what kind of game youare playing.The three different ones are live...buy...and build mode. a.Live Mode Live mode is where you're playing the person.You can play any person in your sim household.But you can't play your neighbors.Your sim can play games, play with their pet, eat, sleep, and even flirt with people.To switch to a new person you click on live mode on the bottom left corner and then click on the persons face.Or you can also press the space bar. *needs HUNGER:Your sims get hungry everyday....it's a human thing.So what you're going to need is..duh,a refrigerator.On the refrigerator there are a certain amount of points that it highers on your hunger meter.Try to keep it full all day...it really helps to do that especially if you work.But you can also call for pizza,which I love!:)! COMFORT:Now this is a very important thing if you want your sim to find a job or a new one...to study...or to practice charisma and all that other stuff because they're depressed.Some things you can do are ...sit...sleep...take a bath...or nap.Some items you'll need are couches,beds,baths,chairs,etc.<<>>Some of the other items such as toilets higher the comfort level. HYGIENE:If your rate is low this means you smell or are dirty.SOOOOOOO...TAKE A SHOWER!!!!!Or you can also wash your hands in a sink which is the cheapest way but not quite the best. BLADDER:Bladder is your need to use the bathroom.SO youll need to get a toilet.If your sim is in a home with more than one person or with a person that's not their friend yet then you'll need to get a seperate room just like for the shower. ENERGY:Now to do practically anything you'll need to sleep or take a nap on the couch!!!Or you can drink what I love to drink with alot of sugar...COFFEE or an ESPRESSO(which gives you more of a kick than coffee) FUN:Everyone knows what to do to have fun.But for more of the boring people I'll tell you...watch the T.V....play games...go on the computer...read...play sports...or swim.There's millions of ways to have fun...you just have to make time for it.In my experience I think you should get a game room and just put all kinds of fun things in there. SOCIAL:This is something that alot of people probably do in class...TALK TALK TALK.IT's fun but you have to make sure you have time.If you don't have time to invite someone over...just call them up on the phone.Talk to your house mates if you need some highering of friendship or social points. ROOM:Just like almost everyone else who isn't gothic...sims like big rooms with lights such as lamps or windows.Also,put paintings or plants and other decorations in your room and other rooms in the house.But whatever you do...DONT LEAVE DURTY DISHES ON THE FLOOR OR BROKEN ITEMS....ITS A BIG NO NO!!!\ *what they need and don't need Your sims...just like you...need all of the needs(from above) everyday.But what I'm talking about in this section are items and the building structure of the house.Now alot of people think that they don't need showers and bath tubs...well guess what!...YOU DO!!!!!!And the more money the item is...the more points it will give your sim.Here's a list of the things you need... 1.A refrigerator 2.A bed 3.A couch or chair(something to sit on) 4.A bath tub or shower or a sink 5.A toilet 6.Some sort of light or windows 7.Garbage can If there are any more things that you really need please update me on them. The games and other fun things you can do you sometimes need it...(it fills your fun skills)but remember...don't spend sooooo much money on things you don't really need. *skills All together there are 6 skills your sim can have all together.They are...cooking...mechanical...charisma...body...logic...and creativity.Now depending on your job you'll need the skills to be as high as possible.Here are some things you can do to boost those skills up... COOKING:read a book from the shelf...thats really all MECHANICAL:read a book from the shelf...or work at the workbench CHARISMA:practice speaking in front of the mirror BODY:swim in the pool...or work out on an exercise machine LOGIC:use the chemistry set and mak a potion...play chess CREATIVITY:play some sort of instrument such as the guitar or piano...paint *activity You can move your sim anywhere you want.But don't forget they do move by themselves too.Most of the items in your house have a command you can give your sim.For example...if you want your sim to use the bathroom all you have to do is make sure your on the sim you want to do the command(should have a green thing above them)then click on the toilet and there should be a few commands and then click use the bathroom.After that they should go to the bathroom if they aren't stubborn and they need to.You can give up to eight commands at once.And if you don't want your sim to do a command you told them to do and they aren't already doing it...all you have to do is look up on the top left corner and click on the command you want to cancel.If you put your clicker over the command on the top left corner and you dont clck anything...it will tell you what you told your sim to do. Sometimes when the simis in the action of walking to the object they were commanded to do...there is sometimes an object in its way so you would want to move it. *bubbles and conversation When a sim has to do somethings such as needs they will have a bubble above them.That's how they communicate with each other and with you.If a sim is talking with another sim and they're having a nice conversation they will have the bubbles going on and on putting different pictures inside of the bubbles and they will keep on talking.But if they get mad with each other the picture will be crossed out(most- likely)and they will make a discusted sound.When the sims have to use the bathroom or take a shower they will have a picture of that item in thier bubble.If they want to play or go have a fun they would have a bubble above them with a basketball rim or a skateboard or somethings fun.Don't just ignore these bubbles........make your sim happy and do what they need or your sim will grow to be an unhappy and miserable person. *getting a job and actually working Ok...getting a job is easy but actually working isn't.You have to get the right amount of sleep and alll that other "good" stuff.I recomend getting one when you first start your sims new life.If you don't then you will have no money to pay for food or a computer and all of the stuff the sim really needs and he will be unhappy.If your sim is unhappy and he is like that before you get him a job......then I wish you luck because it's hard getting the sim a job if he/she doesn't feel like looking because they are too depressed.Now after you finally get a job you have to go to work.So that means no late parties and stuff like that because you need to higher your needs so you are prepared for work.Don't go to bed late so you won't have any energy and make sure you feed them.Give them showers and let them use the bathroom everyday.And don't forget to call other sims on the phone for social needs and to have fun! *neighbors I know alot of you think that some of your neighbors are a little crazy or annoying......in this game you choose if you want nice neighbors.If you want nice neighbors you shopuild become friends with them and may even start a family with them.The other sim neighbors are the sim families that you create and the ones that you get automatically.So if you happen to see a sim that you made walking down your street..........you'll know why. *disasters Your sim families may accounter alot of problems such as moving out or moving in or getting married.Alot of these can be prevented.Also, if you are broke out of money and don't have enough to feed the family......they may die.If opne of the kids in the family is keeping his/her grades down to an F and are not improving them then they'll be shipped to miliatry school and you will never see them again and you'll then have to pay 1000 dollars to pay for their school education!!!Alot of burglaries occur so you might want to get an alarm for that and also an alarm for fires.If your problems are moving out and divorsement then all you have to do is prevent your sim from slapping or abusive actions.Also,pay attention to the other sims around you. *career courses and needs ok if anyone knows and actually understands the career ladder because I have no clue what it means ..so please put it in a complete and understanding career ladder thnx. When your climbing up the career ladder in which I will hopefully be getting soon you will be needing some needs in order to get a promotion. Here they are and some ways to get em. Cooking:to higher this one all you have to do is read a book on cooking!!! Mechanical:THIS ONE IS ALSO PRETTY EASY all you need to do is read a book or TRY to fix something such as the shower. Charisma:to higher this you can get a mirror and practice your speech. Body:you can swim in the pool for this one or exercise on the Logic:to do this you can practice on the chemistry set or the woodcutting kit. Creativity:for this one you can play the piano or the guitar or you can do something thats fun!!! HINT:To see what skills you need for your job go to live mode and then click on the character and go under job by the mood bar and then look at the skills and if it has a white line under it thats what you need for your job if the line is under one then it should have a second line coming out from the end(thats up to how many points you need) *death and the Grim Reaper Yes, your Sim can die. But if you take care of the perons needs and make enough money for food you should be alright.But if that time comes and you do die and someone is there you can play paper scissors rocks.If you win and the grim reaper is in a happy mood then your fellow family or roommate live but if you lose they go (thats if hes In a bad mood) *lady in the attic Have you adopted a baby or had a baby and aren't taking care of it?When the lady comes to take the baby away you can have your own lil' woman pet for a while......not for ever though cas she beams herself up out of the room.All you have to do is when she comes build a wall byu the door of the room the baby is in after she gets in the room of course and you'll have your own lil' gremilon lady in the attic or room. 5.CHeats(really helpful!!!)

OK since everyones been asking me so many questions bout love and stuff...........im gonna skip a few lessons for now.ok first of all... WARM:NOw if you see someone walking down your street.....go greet him/her.After you start to know this person.Who knows, they could be your futeure husband or wife.AFter you start to talk to them you'll start getting warm and think that if this goes well.....they can be your new friend. FRIENDS:NOw after the step of them getting warm is the step of friendship.If you are nice to the person and pay attention to them and how they feel then you two will become great friends.But if you ignore them or abuse them........then you two will become enemies.To see if the relationship will go well.........then see what you two are.(aries gemini etc)It will show you which symbols go great for you and which ones will not. LOVE:After friendship is love.I recommend getting a jacuzzii room...it was the way that I got my first love.....of course in the game,he he,not in real life.IN the game me and my friend wanted the two roommates to fall in love.So we got an idea of making a jacuzzii room and it worked.We put all kinds of stuff in it such as.........well look at creatiing the rooms to start with......and you'll see.NOw to fall in love you guys should dance with each other)dont forget the radio to play music)tickle each other and give gifts to each other and all that other fun and romantic stuff.And after you guyz get a lil or alot closer......it will have the choice of kiss.I recommend kissing them if you want them to be lovers.Aftre they kiss and if they have a high enough score.......it wil l show a big heart.One or both of them will then fall in love. MARRIAGE:Now for me and my friend kind of skipped this part but I have gotten cheats from other people and here they are... First you have to have to people of the ooposite sex (or same sex if gay) meet each other and become friends. As they become friends, they may fall in love and sometimes a commad that says "propose" will appear. If yo uclick on that the Sim will get down on 1 knee and propose. If the person accepts, they will take the ring and the two Sims will change and get married. If the person declines, they will make an excuse and you will have to try again later. (If the couple is gay, the command will be "move in" instead) The person that accepts the proposal will move in and lose their old last name and get the name of the household. or another one is... Soposedly you have to be Supper-De-Duper nice to, whoever. And eventuall the option "Propose" appers in the action pie-chart. The way to do this is obviousally talk,Dance,joke,hug,kiss etc. WARNING your sim should be in top condition(not hungrey, tired, empty bladder etc.) Otherwise the two sims may start haveing negitive, FOUL(Bad) conversation. or another one is... For the Marriage section on the sims, you have to be nice to the person the sim loves and do nice things like dancing and keep doing that for about 7 days. then it should say "should we get married?" and you can get married. BABIES:To have a baby you obviously have to fall madly in love.So you just have to keep all that romantic stuff up such as kissing and dancing.Now the part where you make the baby........IT WILL ASK YOU A QUESTION "DO YOU WANT TO HAVE A BABY?" IF YOU ANSWER YES THEN.........(SCROLL DOWN) . . . . . . . . ...STARS WILL APPEAR AND THEN . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ...A BABY CRIB APPEARS. Hey what did you think would happen??!! a.rooms to start with To set the mood for falling in love here are some rooms you should create.... 1.a JACUZZI ROOM thats the only kind of room i used but if you currently know any other rooms please let me know b.creating the rooms to start with JACUZZII ROOMS FOR ALL TYPES:This is a hint for all types of people so find out what type you are and just create it!!! ROMANTIC.................(it also looks really kool) This is what i did.......build a samll room(not too small).......make the carpet black and paint the walls that black color that has the white dots on them so it looks like they are stars(ill get the names when i can)......when you look for the wallpaper it looks like its black but when you put it on the wall it has white dots on it........then put the jacuzzii in the middle of the room.......dont put any windows in this room and no other lights in it except the candles.......put a candle light (under lighting) on all four sides of the jacuzzii.....then get a lil bar (doesnt matter which one)......and put it 2 squares away from a corner.......then put a small side table on the two sides of it and put a candle lamp on each side table........after you do that get the painting that looks like its water colors mixed together(ill get thw names) and get a plant that can be set on the ground......and put the plant on a side of the room not a corner and put the water colored painting above it.........then get a radio(i recommend the most expensive one if you can but the other ones will do just as well)........and put it on another side of the room......you can also put other things in it that are bright colored but don't make it tooo crowded.....another idea is to get a water fountain or put a small pond in the room OK....IF ANYONE HAS ANY IDEAS OF WHAT ELSE WE CAN DO......PLEASE E-MAIL ME THEM WITH THE EXACT NAMES OF THE ITEMS TO PUT IN IT AND HOW TO ARRANGE IT....THNX. 7.Added things from other Sim players(in other words....credits) email@example.com has informed me that I had forgotten to put in the faq that YOU NEED A PHONE TO CONTACT OTHER PEOPLE UNLESS YOU HAVE THE EXTENSION UNLEASHED. thnx stevie!!! thanx firstname.lastname@example.org for the first guide on marriage thanx email@example.com for the second guide on marriage thanx firstname.lastname@example.org for the third guide on marriage IF I HAVE FORGOTTEN TO GIVE YOU CREDIT FOR ANY PART OF THIS FAQ PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP!!!SO I CAN CHANGE IT ASAP!!! 8.Any Aditional Questions Q.How can i get my single sim to get maarried with her boyfriend he keeps sayin no but i don\'t understand why. A.Like in real life.....you can't rush love.....but for my Sim I did...but that's another story......just keep giving him/her gifts over and over and give them kisses and maybe even do a lil' hot tub.They should eventually get together.....but you should also check thier zodiac sign....sometimes if the zodiacs don't match and you do get married you won't be happy and if they don't match you probably won't get married at all!So pick your soulmates wisely. Q.Will we be able to change clothes in the game? how many family members can we have up 2? A.Yes you will be able to change clothes and all you have to do is get a dressar.....then get into your normal clothes....go back into the dressar.......and it should say chanmge clothes.And you can have up to 8 family members.So if you plan to get married and have a baby...leave a couple of members open to add more.
