The game includes an optional feature called “Story Progression” which allows all Sims in the neighborhood to autonomously continue free will without the player ever controlling those sims. Sims live for a set duration of time that is adjustable by the player and advance through several life stages (baby, toddler, child, teen, young adult, adult, and elder).

Create a World

On October 29, 2009, Electronic Arts announced “Create a World” (CAW), which is a game world editor that allows players to create their own custom cities from scratch for use within the game. Players can customize lots, choose terrain patterns and add roads, vegetation and neighborhood accents (such as water towers and lighthouses).

Build/Buy modes

The build and buy modes have received their own makeover. The square tile outlines that appeared on the ground in previous Sims games’ build and buy modes are now a quarter of their original size to give the player more liberty to place objects where they want. Alternatively, it is possible to place objects freely without square tiles, an option that was missing in previous Sims games. Players can re-color and re-pattern the furniture and other items to specific shades and patterns with the new Create-a-Style and make houses with five levels (basements of up to four floors deep).

Careers

Effortlessly build and design the home of your dreams. Use Build Mode to effortlessly design homes for your Sims and customize their appearance, furnishings, landscapes, and locations.

About The Sims 3

The Sims 3 is the third major title in the life simulation video game developed by The Sims Studio (Maxis) and published by Electronic Arts. It is the sequel to the best-selling computer game, The Sims 2. It was first announced that it was in development for PlayStation 3 and Wii in November 2006, and later announced for OS X and Microsoft Windows. It was first released on June 2, 2009 simultaneously for OS X and Microsoft Windows – both versions on the same disc.

The Sims 3 was released to game consoles and smartphones on October 26, 2010, for PlayStation 3, Wii, Xbox 360, Android, iOS, and Nintendo DS. The Windows Phone version was made available on the Windows Phone Store on October 15, 2010. A Nintendo 3DS version, released on March 27, 2011, was one of its launch titles. It has also been released for mobile phone platforms, and a simpler version for mobiles with Java.

The Sims 3 was a commercial success, selling 1.4 million copies in its first week. Critics issued mostly positive reviews. The Sims 3 gained an 86/100 score from aggregator Metacritic. The game has sold over ten million copies worldwide since its 2009 release, making it one of the best-selling PC games of all time.

The Sims 3 is built upon the same concept as its predecessors. Players control their own Sims’ activities and relationships in a manner similar to real life. The game play is open-ended and does not have a defined goal. Challenges occur randomly based on aspects of each Sim’s lifestyle, such as relationships, skills and job. Career opportunities such as working overtime or completing special tasks can yield a pay raise, cash bonus, or relationship boost. Skill opportunities are requests by neighbors or community members for Sims to solve problems using their acquired skills for cash or relationship rewards. If the opportunity is connected to a Sim’s school, the reward may be increased school performance.

The new reward system Wishes replaces the Wants And Fears system in its predecessor The Sims 2. Fulfilling a Sim’s wish contributes to the Sim’s Lifetime Happiness score, allowing players to purchase lifetime rewards for the cost of those Lifetime Happiness points.

The game includes an optional feature called “Story Progression” which allows all Sims in the neighborhood to autonomously continue free will without the player ever controlling those sims. Sims live for a set duration of time that is adjustable by the player and advance through several life stages (baby, toddler, child, teen, young adult, adult, and elder).

Sims can die of old age or they can die prematurely from causes such as fire, starvation, drowning, electrocution, (as of the World Adventures expansion pack) Mummy’s curse, (as of the Ambitions expansion pack) a meteor, (as of the Late Night expansion pack) by thirst (vampires only, as of the Showtime expansion pack), by failing a trick as a magician (drowning in water/being buried), (as of the Supernatural expansion pack) by failing Haunting Curse (witches only), eating a poisoned jelly bean and transmuting into gold, (as of the Seasons expansion pack) by freezing, (as of the University Life expansion pack) by being crushed by Murphy bed/vending machines, (as of the Island Paradise expansion pack) by shark, drowning while scuba diving and dehydration (mermaids only) and (as of the Into the Future expansion pack) by falling from the sky with jet-pack and by time paradox.
