Six million players already play in The Sims Social for Facebook, so we are able to assume that the new free version of the EA classic for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, called The Sims Freeplay, will surely receive its well deserved share of downloads in the AppStore app store.

The gameplay of the game is simple and consists of performing various tasks, from gardening outside the window of your Sim's home in order to earn money to enhance the mood of your wards with snacks and sleep. All these actions take a certain amount of time - and since life in The Sims Freeplay flows in real time, you better sometimes look around how your Sims do there, without throwing the game for long hours.

Creating a Sim

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

Since The Sims 3 Freeplay has many opportunities to create unique characters, it makes sense to spend a little more time on this process, because something tells us that you will spend quite a lot of time with the Sims you created.

The game allows you to create up to 16 Sims, giving you room in the choice of details: from Hairstyles and the color of the eyes of Sim to his clothes and shoes. Character traits vary from Abstruse to Villain - however, if you do not want to spend too much time creating a character, you can always just press the random selection button.

Example of a premium game

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

The Sims 3 Freeplay, like us, lives day and night, and any action to earn money and gaming points takes a certain number of minutes or hours. However, as an alternative, simoleons and gaming glasses can be purchased for real ringtones in the designated Shop. Also, players can reduce the time required to perform an action, with the help of already earned gaming points.

As you rise in the levels, you can add more Sims to the game, moving them to the residential areas of your city. Remember the codes to increase the amount of money from the games of the series The Sims for PC? Yes, and we remember, however, there were no similar features for the version under iOS at the moment. Most likely, the reason is EA's desire to sell simoleons to players for real currency.

Set up your house

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

Part of the fun of the game The Sims is decorating your bachelor dwelling - not that we could afford to get a closer look at the latest technology for the house, but we still had to spend on the necessary items in the Pokupok Mode.

As for the theme of the house, we preferred a medieval castle to the dwelling of a sci-fi clever programmer, stuffed with old computers and boxes of pizza. Over time, players can also change city parks and shops to their taste - however, before the opening of this opportunity it is necessary to have patience.

Version for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

Although we tried the preliminary version of The Sims Freeplay only on the iPhone, we are still sure that the game will look no worse, but rather even better on iPad devices. And, at first glance, EA is not going to deprive those fans of the series who are not ready to pay for digital bonuses for their wards real money - so do not let the 'freemium' game models scare themselves off before they need to.

In the fourth addon The SIMS 3: All ages are all revolving around the Sims, around their daily lives.

Questions regarding infants and adolescents

Addon brought a lot of new things for the younger generation of Sims. Have a kindergarten or university appeared in the new add-on, you can learn in this section.

Will the children play role games together or singly?
Thanks to the new box for toys with costumes, children can turn into a dinosaur, prince / princess or astronaut, and then play with each other. One suit will have 3 color variants.

Can the children do something, dressed in these suits or will they only behave in accordance with the image?
Children fully associate themselves with their new role. For example, the Dinosaur does not go, but runs wide steps and with a furious grimace on his face. Young "Godzilla" likes to destroy the constructed castles from sand and to kick toy houses. Princesses, just like little fairies, gracefully move, at every opportunity waving a "magic wand".

What specifically can children do in the new houses in the trees?
Children can play like this in the house, as if they were playing in a small children's club, or they would repel the attack of pirates, they can also pour water on other Sims and sleep in the same house. If necessary, children can look through the telescope from the window or slide down the hill. To none of them caught, they again quickly climb up the ladder. In addition, the child may limit the possibility of hitting other children in the house. For example, girls set a "qualification" - no boys in their house or vice versa.

Will there be a kindergarten?
No, there will not be a kindergarten in our understanding.

Can children play any musical instruments?
The musical instruments offered in the purchase mode, as it turned out later, can not be used by children. Still, children will probably be able to play on some instruments in the out-of-school musical circle. Since we have not tried to study there, unfortunately, we can not say for sure whether a child can play there or not.

Are there any toys with which the child can develop skills?
No, we did not find any.

Teens

If Sima is caught, the police will send him home, where dissatisfied parents can put a teenager under house arrest or forbid him to play with his favorite toy for a while.

From adolescence, Sims can tell stories about ghosts, after which some will spend a sleepless night. More Sims, starting with The Sims 3 All ages, will be able to dream! If Sim, for example, hears a terrible story for the night, it is likely that he will have nightmares.

Will there be a university?
No, the new addition will not have universities. At the same time, school education was supplemented by other extensive functions. On the one hand, parents will be able to send their children after school to special clubs open on weekdays.

We sent our Sim-girl to a ballet studio, and right after the first lesson she was able to show a few ballet dancers and pliets. Out-of-school activities are in the menu on the career bookmark and are carried out as a routine job with the possibility of career growth.

There are 10 different circles:

  • Ballet Studio
  • Young Pathfinders
  • Music Circle
  • Art Circle
  • Journalistic club
  • School partnership
  • Discussion Club
  • theatre studio
  • Skillful hands
  • Sports society.

Another opportunity to take an alternative to regular school education for young Sims will be boarding schools, which are available in 5 different game types:

  • Sport school
  • Normal school
  • Army School
  • Art school
  • School of Love and Friendship

On the phone the parent can arrange a child to boarding. Then the child takes a taxi from the house. For the duration of the training the child becomes unplayable. In boarding schools, Sims receive skills corresponding to the name of the school and call parents only on weekends. In the new addition of The SIMS 3 All ages developers have introduced school excursions. With your consent, the child can participate in them. Sometimes after the end of the study time there is a window in which it is asked about whether your children can go on an excursion. At the same time, all children who are in school automatically become participants. After returning, children can receive one or more gifts.

Will the school be replaced by an ordinary public plot?
No, the school will continue to be a "rabbit hole".

How can you imagine a graduation party?
Shortly before the birthday of the teenager, the game will notify you that your Sim wants to participate in the graduation ball. Your Sim may find out from another Sim whether he / she will want to accompany him to the graduation party. Simov with a chic podvezut on a limousine to the place of celebration. At the ball, graduates even have a chance to be elected queen / king of the prom, and even get crowns.

Does the graduation give any advantages and how to get a diploma?
On the birthday of the teenager, the player will be asked if he wants to arrange a graduation party for his Sim. In both cases (with or without ball) Sim during the transition from the age of the teenager to the Young Adult will receive a diploma that will be in the inventory and it can be hung on the wall.

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free PlayСекреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free PlayСекреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

Graduation does not give a professional or other advantage. In principle, everything that concerns the school remains the same, only now it is possible to arrange a celebration for Sima after her graduation.

How is the stag / hen party?
If your Sim is engaged, he can invite his friends to a party with lots of nectar about farewell to bachelorhood to enjoy the last hours of freedom. At the party, you can proclaim toast. It is also possible to invite several lightly dressed guests to revive the holiday. However, in the revelry of fun Sima should be on guard so that her (his) partner does not watch them with a new video camera, while he / she is immoral.

Will there be male dancers?
Yes, for the farewell of brides with an unmarried life, of course, there will be stripers disguised, for example, by police or firemen.

All this significantly improves the mood of participants and contributes to the success of the event.

Wedding gifts have appeared in the new addition as a new gift interaction.

Will interactions with children change?
In essence, nothing has changed, however, now interactions with children are displayed in the menu more quickly. Although outwardly the interactions look a little different. For example, you can now tick the baby around the calf or use new objects, such as a water walkway or a video camera that can capture important moments in the life of Sim and his family in thrilling images.

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

What is the expression of the crisis of middle age?
At the end of the adult period, Sims enter a midlife crisis. At this time they will have a few special desires, which can be recognized by the red color of the background. If you fulfill the desire of Sim, it will not retire until other desires are fulfilled, respectively. These desires will cease to appear only when Sim overcomes the crisis of middle age. If the desire in the end is not fulfilled, Sim will have a bad mudlet for a long time.

If the psychological crisis is overcome, a bunch of additional dates will appear in the biography, and, depending on the wishes fulfilled, a good mood. Of course, you can completely ignore the middle age crisis, however, in this case you will not get any additional bonuses, and also possible negative consequences. If Sim wants to finish this stage ahead of schedule, he can just visit the hospital and get treatment there.

Does the middle-aged crisis have any relation to the bonus award of the same name for the points of life benefit?
No, the crisis of middle age has no connection with this bonus award, it simply allows you to change the character traits of your Sim without using special codes.

Elderly Sims

What new interactions have appeared for the older age group of Sims?
The only new thing that old people can do is to indulge in memories with other Sims.

Sims can talk about the following topics:

  • Good old time
  • Childhood
  • School
  • Music
  • Wohoo
Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

Do Sims receive a cane in the luggage automatically when moving to the older age group?
If the elderly Sim uses a cane, you must first put this same cane in his luggage, first buying it in the Purchase Mode and laying it on the floor. Then, in Sim's luggage, you must select the action on the cane so that Sim begins to use it. After that, Sim will always walk with the cane, until you cancel the use of the cane in Sim's luggage. You can also choose 2 different gaits. On the one hand, it's a stereotyped senile, stooped gait, on the other hand, the gait of the "gentleman from the south" when Sim goes aristocratic straightening his back. The cane can only be used by older Sims.

Will there be a shelter for elderly Sims?
No, such a shelter is not planned.

Questions on the overall gameplay

Does the addition of "The Sims 3: All Ages" appear in the new town?
For the first time in the emerging addon will not be a new town. According to the developer Graham Nardon, the addition of "The Sims 3: All Ages" is entirely focused on the Sims themselves, and accordingly, the main attention was paid to developing the largest number of character interactions with each other.

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free PlayСекреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free PlayСекреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

Will there be new buildings?
Although there is no new town, the game will have a "ton" of houses with landscaped areas. Along with nine beautiful large apartment houses there is a new public lot, namely, a children's playground with an imitation carousel. But this is only a podium with the pendulums mounted on a circle on the spring, made in the form of little animals.

How does the new system of memories function?
The new system of memories is very different from what we knew from The Sims 2. Now memories are represented by something like a photo album or a diary. The book is divided into 3 parts, each of which you can activate with the help of the relevant bookmarks.

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

In the first part are the memories of Sim, presented by screenshots. With special events such as, for example, a wedding, the camera shutter automatically snaps, capturing a memorable scene. Then a message box appears asking if you want to record this memory. If you confirm this, the following window appears, where you can write the name of the picture and a small text-explanation to it, and also describe the event as a good, neutral or bad memory. At other events, such as the first driving lesson taught by the father to a teenager, you will also be asked whether it is necessary to write it down in a memoir book. However, in this case, instead of a screenshot of the scene, an icon-icon appears-in this case an icon with a car-with the appropriate heading, to which you can add the description text yourself. In general, the sim can have up to 300 events in its book of memories. Also you can post saved screenshots of memorable events from the life of Sims on TheSims3.com or on Facebook. To contact the site, you need to find in the book of memories necessary icon, which leads directly to the window for entering personal data on your account. Also in the options you will find the corresponding gadget for connection with Facebook.

In the second part of the book statistics are presented for each Sim who lives on the lot. There are information about the number of memories, unique / different / special moments, information about the reputation of the Sim, about the longest period of his romantic relationship, about the characters with whom this relationship was, about the number of novels in general, and how often this sim deceived the partner.

In the third part of the book, you can invent and record the biography of Sim, giving you complete freedom of fantasy.

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

A system of memories.
Since it was forbidden to take screenshots with the user interface, we tried to draw a book of memories from the screen. We apologize for the bad drawing (Erinnerungen - means "memories") .

Can I add my own pictures to the system of memories?
Yes, you can make your own screenshots and add them to your memories. To do this, on the edge of the bookmark with information about the mood of the Sim is a purple icon with a camera that directly starts the desired mode. You can then give the header a screenshot and add a short text description, as well as set the kind of memories.

Is there a new career?
In the new addition "The Sims 3: All Ages", Sims can make a career as a day-time nanny, which is very suitable for caring, family-oriented characters. As a nanny, your sim will become a "day mother", so the work is done mostly during working hours and in your own "four walls", that is, at home. On weekdays, parents instruct your children to take care of the children during the working day. About the career - the description says that you must support the needs of kids at a high level, provide them with games with toys, prepare food for them, and so on, until the parents take the children. Can you also determine your children to the nurse, we, unfortunately, do not know.

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

If the "day mother" successfully "grows" professionally, then her duties will, of course, become more difficult. More and more children will come to her. In this case, the age of the kids is not limited to the younger group, it may be the pupils of primary school who come after school, which you will have to inspire to do homework. In addition, day-care educators-professionals will have to accept the fact that on weekends the mother suddenly gives them her disobedient child, who is not so easily pacified.

Is it possible to arrange costumed parties and play skits?
No, costume parties are impossible. Masquerade costumes can only be used by children for role-playing games.

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

What is an imaginary friend?
The new creation in The Sims3: All Ages is an imaginary friend. An imaginary friend can see only one sim that interacts with him, as with any other character. He can play with an imaginary friend, as with an ordinary child, for example, start a battle with pillows, hug him or arrange a tea party. What is happening can surprise other characters, since for them it looks at least strange: they see a sim who speaks to himself, or a wild fight with an air pillow. Actually, an imaginary friend is like a robot doll, which a sim-baby can receive as a gift. If he plays with this toy a lot of time and develops a relationship with her, then the doll will come to life after a certain period. Moreover, an imaginary friend has the same age as the sim. If Sim is a child, an imaginary friend will also be a child and celebrate a birthday with your character at the same time. He will become a teenager when your child grows into a teenager. If Sim dies, the imaginary friend turns back into a doll and thus can build a relationship with another Sim to come to life again.

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

Does an imaginary friend automatically disappear if the sim grows up?
Not necessary. An imaginary friend persists for as long as you interact with him. If the level of your relationship is low or you do not play with it for a long time, one day it will disappear.

What needs to be done to turn it into a real Sim?
To make an imaginary friend real, visible to other Sims, you need to get one brown drink, which you can create in a chemical laboratory. You must put the ready-made drink in the inventory of the sim, whose friend you want to make real. If the level of the relationship between this character and an imaginary friend is high enough, the sim will be able to invite him to become real. Becoming a real friend no longer looks like a robot doll, he looks like a real sim with mottled hair in a special suit.

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free PlayСекреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

Does the possibility of getting an imaginary friend from the qualities of a sim depend?
Whether this imaginary friend receives this sym- bol does not depend on his character. The only condition here is for parents to order a special doll when the baby is still a sim. The next day the doll is delivered by post. Then you can give it to the baby for the game.

How exactly do film movies work, and what can you do with them?
In the purchase mode, you will now find a video camera, which your sims can shoot neighborhoods or important events. To shoot a video, you must instruct the active sim to start video recording. Then you go to camera mode and start the "motor" by pressing the "C" key. The length of the video is always 60 seconds. During shooting, you can, as always, zoom in or out of the camera's focus, as well as stop shooting at will. If the video is ready, you will find a video cassette in Sim's inventory, which you can then view on your home TV. It is very convenient that the developers implemented something like an external hard disk into the game, where you can download videos, so that each member of the family has access to the "video library" of the recorded memories, and the cassettes are not scattered around the house.

Questions on buying and building regimes

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

Are the baby carriages fully functional?
Yes, the baby strollers are fully functional. For an adult Sim to actually carry a child in a stroller, it must be in the inventory of an adult. If you click on a certain place and choose that you would like to go there with a small child, she puts the baby in a stroller.

On the question whether the process is correctly animated, when the child is placed in a baby carriage or gets it back from there, it is difficult to answer. Sim takes the child and immediately starts moving, as if he had someone put in a stroller. For a moment the child suddenly finds himself sitting in a wheelchair, and the adult is already pushing it in front of him.

Will there be a changing table?
No, there will not be a changing table in the game.

Will the bunk beds also be fully functional?
The game will have four different versions of bunk beds, of which, in our opinion, only one can be used for teenage or adult Sims. In addition, each of these four options is available in the form of only one upper tier, and in the form of two beds, on which two Sims can sleep. The upper bed is fully functional.

Секреты, уловки, описание The Sims Free Play

The area under the bed, which has only the upper tier, can be used at its discretion. For example, there is a wonderful way to set up a desk with a computer and an office chair.

Will there be a new chemistry skill for the chemical laboratory?
No, a special skill was not done for the chemical laboratory. With its help, Sims can improve the skill of "logic" when they create new potions. If sim invented the potion, he can then create it as often as he wants.

Will the collections return?
Returns of collections-collections, as it was in The Sims 2, perhaps, it is necessary to wait a little longer. But in "The Sims 3: All Ages" added the filter function of objects in the purchase and construction mode by source - addition or catalog. On the right, next to the objects, you can find already familiar by the form of a star, which is usually marked by downloads. Clicking on it, you can choose which objects you want to show - only from the base game, either from a specific add-on, or from The Store, or just downloaded items.
