The Sims 3 Indepth - Creating A Sim
Written at 02:01 by Andy - 6 comments.

A Sim To Call Your Own

In the third part of The Sims 3 Indepth, we are finally getting to look at what options there are when creating a new sim to go into Sunset Valley, going from the basics such as body shape down to their freckles.

As well as how they look, we will be looking at what they wear, how they are made up, but most importantly, we will be looking at how we define who they are with their personality and what they want from their sim life.

Moving Into The Valley

In the fourth part of The Sims 3 Indepth, we are seeing what options there are when we build our couple a new home. We look at the price of real estate in Sunset Valley, ranging from shorefront properties to those well inland.

We will be looking at the budget a couple has available, building their house from the ground up and furnishing it with the basics, also making sure that somewhere along the way, their house looks coordinated with help from our own basic guide on using the Create-A-Style-Tool.

Sims 3 Patch - Long list of Fixes [Update]
Written at 19:13 by ChEeTaH - 0 comments.

A new patch for the Sims 3 is out, this time updating the game to version 1.3. The amount of fixes is big: from deformed toddlers to trying for baby with the Grim Reaper, picking an unborn baby's gender through eating fruits, having Sims you once played deleted by the game or baby Sims for single parents: these issues and many more are now repaired. The patch is available through the game's launcher (EA Download Manager required). Check out the official site's patches page for a complete list of fixes.

[Update 29 July 2009] On the forums there are some complaints about Sims not being able to go anywhere after this update. For more information, read the forum posts about the topic. Thanks to SnootySims for spotting this.

Living the Sim Life

In the fifth part of The Sims 3 Indepth, we follow Jonah and Bronwen around Sunset Valley on their first day as they look for work, meet some of the people and start to live the sim life in their new home.

We will be looking in detail at wishes, moodlets and lifetime happiness, looking at the different rewards that are available once the points have been accrued. We will also be looking at the easiest way to get around the area and preparing the way for their first working day and one step closer to their life goals.
