The Sims Download

The Sims 3: Seasons is the eighth expansion pack for The Sims 3 on OS X and PC. It was released on November 13, 2012 in North America, and on November 16 in Europe.

 

You can download The Sims 3: University Life for free, working on both PC and Mac. This is the full version expansion for the game – you are required to have the original Sims 3 game before being able to use the University Life pack.

Players can interact with weather, get into the mood of each season and tell meaningful stories with their sims. There are also unique festivals during each season, with events sims can take part in. Sims can get their faces painted and compete in a hot dog eating contest in the summer, carve a pumpkin and bob for apples during fall and have snowball fight or go snowboarding and ice skating in the winter. Sims can also swim in the ocean and play soccer all year round.

There are new traits, “loves the cold” and “loves the heat”. Sims with these traits will enjoy extreme temperatures, finding the cold or heat pleasant rather than uncomfortable. Sims can also catch a cold, get a tan, or get struck by lightning. Days are shorter in winter and longer in summer. The creature in this expansion pack is aliens, similar to the ones from The Sims 2 but with some updates.

The Sims 3: University Life Features

Create a Sim SimsQueen

Major Excitement

Each major comes with its own special Sim enhancement. Play with an anatomically-correct skeleton as part of the Science and Medicine major, or broadcast a radio show with the Communications major.

Be the Big Sim On Campus

Joining a prominent social clique—Jock, Nerd, or Rebel—can lead to unique job specializations: Sports Agent, Video Game Designer, and Art Appraiser. But your Sim will have to work hard to rise to the top.

Master Procrastination

The surrounding town has a wealth of options for exploration and entertainment. Down java at Roasted Toasted Beans or argue superheroes at Keith’s Komics. Anything to avoid studying.

About The Sims 3: University Life

College is a time of learning and experimentation. Now your Sims can create their own campus memories and have experiences that will shape their destinies! Choosing a major begins an education that will pay off handsomely after college, with better entry-level jobs and quicker promotions.

But of course, it’s not just about studying… your Sims want to have fun, too! Dorm parties and bonfires are great ways to blow off steam, and there’s no end to the shenanigans. Joining a notable social group can also open up entirely new avenues for advancement.

Whether posting on social networks via smartphone, leading a campus protest or researching new scientific discoveries, ambitious Sims will find a lot to engage them in University Life!

Sims University is a sub-neighborhood probably based on New England Campuses that functions similarly to the vacation worlds in World Adventures. Its mascot is a llama. In order to attend university, Sims must be a young adult, adult or elder. When a non-player mascot is near the Sims’ lots, they can take an aptitude test. The results will depend on their skills, traits, work experience and school grades. The results also show the total aptitude score, along with the sub-scores for the majors and cerid award. The amount of financial assistance (scholarship) provided to the Sim is also determined by the test. Teen can also take the aptitude test, to see what skills they need to work on but they can not go to University before they grow up to be a young adult.

Enrolling in college can be done on phone, computer, or going to the public school and enrolling there. The player can select the Sim’s major, out of either Business, Communications, Fine Arts, Physical Education, Science and Medicine, or Technology, as well as the amount of credits they wish to study for, and whether they want to study for one or two terms. Taking more credits will allow a Sim to obtain their degree faster, but they will have more of their time taken up by studying.

To receive a degree, a Sim must obtain 48 credits for it, and pass their final exams. Having a degree will allow a Sim to start at a higher level in careers relevant to the degree, and they will also be paid more. These benefits will increase the higher the Sim’s grade.

University Life also introduces social groups: Jocks, Nerds and Rebels. The player can join these social groups, and move up in their rankings by befriending members of the group and/or doing activities and interactions related to the group. As they progress through the ranks they can unlock new interactions and objects, and later pick an additional trait. A Sim who reaches rank 10 with a group will be given a job offer in a special career unique to that group.
