Your questions The Sims Free Play - from babies to teens

Having taken part in the closed preview of the latest EA game for iOS, built on the "freemium" model (from translation.-business model, according to which basic services are provided free of charge, but you need to pay for additional ones), we rush to share several screenshots and first impressions .

Six million players are already playing in The Sims Social for Facebook, so we can assume that the new free version of the EA classic for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, called The Sims Freeplay, will definitely get its deserved share of downloads in the AppStore application store.
The gameplay of the game is simple and consists of performing various tasks, from gardening outside the window of your Sim's house with the goal of earning money to raising the mood of your charges 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 watch how your Sims are doing without throwing the game for long hours.
Create a sim
Since The Sims 3 Freeplay has many opportunities to create unique characters, it makes sense to spend a little more time on this process, as something tells us that you will spend quite a lot of time with your Sims.
The game allows you to create up to 16 Sims, giving you space in the choice of details: from the hairstyles and the color of Sim's eyes to his clothes and shoes. Character traits vary from abstruse to villain - however, if you don’t want to spend too much time creating a character, you can always just press the random button.
Premium game example
The Sims 3 Freeplay, like us, lives day and night, and any action to make money and game points takes a certain number of minutes or hours. However, as an alternative, simoleons and game points can be purchased for a real specie in the designated Store. Also, players can reduce the time required to perform an action with the help of already earned game points.
As you climb through the levels, you can add more Sims to the game, moving them to residential areas of your city. Remember the codes to increase the amount of money from the games of The Sims series for PC? Yes, and we remember, however, similar opportunities for the version under iOS at the moment it was not revealed. Most likely, the reason for this is the desire of EA to sell Simoleons to players for real currency.
Equip your home
Part of the fun game The Sims is decorating their bachelor housing - not that we could afford to look at us the latest technology for the house, but we still had to spend money on the necessary items in the Shopping Mode.
As for the subject of the house, we preferred to the medieval castle a haven of a sci-fi-style clever programmer, stuffed with old computers and pizza boxes. Over time, players can also change city parks and shops to suit their taste - however, it’s worth patience before opening this opportunity.
Version for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch
Although we only tried out the preliminary version of The Sims Freeplay on the iPhone, we are still confident that the game will look just as good and even better on iPad devices. And, at first glance, EA is not going to deprive those fans of the series who are not willing to pay for digital bonuses for their wards real money - so do not let the “freemium” game models scare themselves off before they should.
In the fourth addon, The SIMS 3: All ages, everything revolves around Sims, around their daily lives.
Questions about babies and teens
Addon brought a lot of new things for the younger generation of Sims. Whether a kindergarten or a university has appeared in a new supplement, you can find out in this section.
What new interactions have the smallest?
Babies do not have specific innovations. However, Sims almost immediately after birth can get an Imaginary Friend, which is delivered in the form of a doll in a package and can be presented to the child as a toy.
Kids and Children
Will children play role-playing games together or alone?
Thanks to the new toy box with costumes, children can turn into a dinosaur, a prince / princess or an astronaut, and then play with each other. One suit will have 3 color options.
Will the children be able to do something wearing these costumes or will they only behave in accordance with the image?
Children fully associate themselves with their new role. For example, a dinosaur does not walk, but runs with long strides and with a fierce grimace on its face. Young Godzilla loves to destroy built sand castles and kick toy houses. Princesses, just like little fairies, move gracefully, swinging a “magic wand” at every opportunity.
What exactly can children do in new tree houses?
Children can play in the house as if they were playing in a small kids club, or if they would repel an attack by pirates, they can also pour water on other Sims and sleep in the same house. On occasion, children can look through a telescope from a window or slide down a slide. To no one caught them, 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 "census" - no boys in their house, or vice versa.
Will there be a kindergarten?
No, there will be no kindergarten in our understanding.
Will children be able to play any musical instruments?
The musical instruments offered in the purchase mode, as it turned out later, cannot be used by children. Nevertheless, children will probably be able to play any instruments in the extracurricular Music Circle. Since we did not try to study there, unfortunately, we can’t say for sure if the child can play there or not.
Are there toys with which a child can develop skills?
No, we did not find any.
How far can teens in a romantic relationship? Teenagers can already choose romantic interactions with each other. Of course, new romantic interactions appeared in the selection of The SIMS 3 for all choices. Sim teenager will be able to give a bouquet of flowers or sitting on the ground by a widow, looking at the stars. In the latter case, it will be possible to hold the hand of another Sim.
Will teens be able to kiss looking at the stars? No, unfortunately, this is impossible. When Sims want to kiss, they will stand up and then everything will go as usual.
Is teenage pregnancy possible? No, because they have no wohoo in the interactions.
What are leprosy and what is necessary for their implementation?
It is possible to throw eggs at the front door of another Sim; put on the threshold of a dear neighbor burning stinking package; give someone a pillow in the chair; having made the necessary manipulations, it is possible to invent stinky liquid in the chemical laboratory, which will cause a massive attack of vomiting, and much more. If Sima is caught at the same time, the police will send him home, where disgruntled parents can put the teenager under house arrest or ban him for a while to play with his favorite toy.
From adolescence, Sims can tell ghost stories, after which some will spend a sleepless night. More Sims, starting with The Sims 3 All Ages, will be able to have dreams! If Sim, for example, hears a terrible story at night, then it is likely that he will have nightmares.
Can you arrange leprosy together or alone?
Teenagers can play pranks both in the company and separately.
How is house arrest or ban on video games?
Basically, a guilty Sim can not leave the house or use a game console. At the same time, the Sims are still trying to do it in secret. For example, they will try to sneak out of the house. If Sima is caught, the punishment will be tougher.
Will there be a university?
No, the new addition will not be universities. At the same time, school education was supplemented with other extensive functions. On the one hand, parents will be able to send their children after school to special circles open on workdays.
We sent our Sim-girl to the ballet studio, and immediately after the first lesson she was able to show several ballet couples and plias. Extracurricular activities are in the menu on the bookmark career and carried out as usual work with the possibility of career growth.
There are 10 different circles:
- Ballet studio
- Young Pathfinders
- Music club
- Art Circle
- Journalistic club
- School partnership
- Discussion club
- theatre studio
- Skillful hands
- Sports Society.
Another opportunity to take advantage of alternative regular school education for young Sims will be boarding schools, which are in the game of 5 different types:
- Sport school
- Regular school
- Army School
- Art school
- School of Love and Friendship
On the phone a parent can arrange a child in boarding school. Then the child takes a taxi from home. At the time of training the child becomes unplayable. In boarding schools, Sims receive skills appropriate to the school’s name; they call parents only on weekends. In the new addition, The SIMS 3 All Ages, developers have introduced school trips. With your consent, the child can take part in them. Sometimes at the end of school time, a window appears asking about whether your children can go on a tour. At the same time, all children in the school automatically become participants. After returning, children can receive one or more gifts.
Will the school be replaced by a regular public area?
No, the school will continue to be the rabbit hole.
How can you imagine graduation party?
Shortly before your teen's birthday, the game will notify you that your Sim wants to attend a graduation party. Your Sim can ask another Sim if he / she wants to accompany him to the prom. Sims with chic ride in a limousine to the place of celebration. At the ball itself, graduates even have a chance to be elected queen / king of the prom, and even get crowns.
Does graduation have any advantages and how to get a diploma?
On the teenager’s birthday, the player will be asked if he wants to arrange a prom for his Sim. In both cases (with or without a ball), the sim will receive a diploma, when passing from the age of a teenager to a young adult, which will be in the inventory and can be hung on the wall.
Graduation does not give a professional or other advantage. In principle, everything that concerns the school remains as before, only now you can arrange for Sim to celebrate after her graduation.
Questions about adults and old men sims
When your Sim matures, his life can change a lot over time. He will marry, get a midlife crisis or become an old man.
How is the bachelor party / bachelorette party?
If your Sim is engaged, he can invite his friends to a party with a lot of nectar about parting with a bachelor life to enjoy the last hours of freedom. Toast can be proclaimed at the party. It is also possible to invite some lightly dressed guests to revive the holiday. However, in the midst of a lot of fun, Sims should be on their guard so that her (his) partner will not stalk them with a new video camera while he / she is behaving immorally.
Will there be male dancers?
Yes, for farewell brides with an unmarried life, of course, there will be strippers disguised, for example, by police or firefighters.
How is the wedding going?
From now on, Sims will be able to arrange weddings. This means that, as usual, Sims on the phone invite guests and wait for their arrival. When guests arrive, you can use the new wedding arch to carry out the planned ceremony. Following this, freshly baked spouses will be able to cut the wedding cake. All this greatly improves the mood of the participants and contributes to the success of the event.
Will there be an opportunity to give wedding gifts?
Wedding gifts appeared in the new addition as a new gift interaction.
Will interactions with children change?
Nothing has changed in the main point, however, now interactions with children are displayed in the menu faster. Although outwardly interactions look a little different. For example, you can now tickle a baby all over the calf or use new objects, such as a water lane or video camera, which can capture important images of the life of Sim and his family in exciting images.
What is the middle age crisis?
At the end of the adult period, Sims enter into a midlife crisis. At this time, they will have a few special desires that can be recognized by the red color of the background. If you fulfill a desire to Sim, it will not be removed until the other wishes are fulfilled, respectively. These desires will cease to appear only when Sim overcomes the midlife crisis. If the wishes are not fulfilled in the end, Sim will have a bad muddle for a long time.
If the psychological crisis is overcome, a bunch of additional dates will appear in the biography, and also, depending on the wishes fulfilled, a good mood. Of course, you can completely ignore the mid-life crisis, however, in this case, you will not receive any additional bonuses, as well as possible negative consequences. If Sim wants to complete this stage ahead of time, he can simply visit the hospital and receive treatment there.
Does a middle age crisis relate to a bonus of the same name for life gain points?
No, the mid-life crisis has no connection with this bonus reward, it simply allows you to change the character traits of your Sim without the use of special codes.
What new interactions have appeared for the older Sims age group?
The only new thing that old people can do is indulge in memories with other Sims.
Sims can talk about the following topics:
- Good old time
Do Sims get a cane in their luggage automatically when they go to the older age group?
If an elderly Sim uses a cane, you must first put this same cane in his luggage, having previously bought it in Purchase Mode and laid it on the floor. Then in Sim's baggage, you must select an action on the canes for Sim to start using it. After that, Sim will always walk with a cane, until you cancel the use of a cane in Sim's luggage. You can also choose 2 different gaits. On the one hand, this is a stereotypical old hunched walk, on the other hand, the gentleman from the south, when Sim is walking, aristocraticly straightening his back. The reed can only be used by older Sims.
Will there be a shelter for older Sims?
No, such a shelter is not planned.
Questions about the overall gameplay
A new system of memories has made its way into the gameplay. Also, learn more about the new creation - an imaginary friend!
Will the new town appear in the addition of “The Sims 3: All Ages”?
For the first time in the outgoing addon will not appear a new town. According to developer Graham Nardon, the addition of “The Sims 3: All Ages” is entirely focused on the sims themselves, and in accordance with this, the focus was on developing the greatest number of character interactions with each other.
Will there be new buildings?
Although there is no new town, a "ton" of houses with landscaped plots will appear in the game. Along with nine beautiful large residential buildings, there is a new public lot, namely, a children's playground with a carousel imitation. But this is only the podium with the spring-mounted rocking chairs made in the form of little animals.
How does the new memory system work?
The new system of memories is very different from what we knew from The Sims 2. Now the memories are presented as something like a photo album or diary. The book is divided into 3 parts, each of which you can activate using the appropriate bookmarks.
In the first part are the memories of the sim, represented by screenshots. For special events, such as a wedding, the camera automatically clicks the shutter, 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 explaining it, and also characterize the event as a good, neutral or bad memory. With other events, such as, for example, the first driving lesson that the father taught to the teenager, you will also be asked if you need to write it down in a book of memoirs. However, in this case, instead of taking a screenshot of the scene, a label-icon appears - in this case, an icon with a car - with the appropriate title, to which you can add descriptive text. In general, a sim can have up to 300 events in his book of memories. You can also post saved screenshots of memorable events in the lives of Sims on TheSims3.com or on Facebook. To contact the site, you need to find the necessary icon in the book of memories, which leads directly to the window for entering personal data on your account. Also in the options you will find the corresponding gadget to connect with Facebook.
The second part of the book presents statistics on each Sim living on the lot. It contains information about the number of memories, unique / different / special moments, information about the reputation of the sim, the longest period of his romantic relationship, the characters with whom the relationship was, the number of novels in general, and how often this sim was cheating on a partner.
In the third part of the book, you can invent and write down the biography of a sim, giving you complete freedom of fantasy.
The 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 design (Erinnerungen - means "memories") .
Can I add my own pictures to the memory system?
Yes, you can take 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 screenshot to the title and add a short text description, as well as set the type of memory.
Is there a new career?
In the new addition, “The Sims 3: All Ages,” Sims can make a day nurse career that is very suitable for caring, family-oriented characters. As a nanny, your sim will become a “day mother”, so the work is done mainly during working hours and in your own “four walls”, that is, at home. On weekdays, parents entrust their children to you so that you take care of the children during the working day. Regarding career, the description says that you must keep the needs of the children at a high level, provide them with toys, prepare food for them and so on, until the parents take the children. At the same time, if you yourself can also define your children for a nanny, we unfortunately do not know.
If the “day mother” successfully “grows” professionally, then her duties, of course, will become more difficult. More children will come to her. At the same time, the age of the children is not limited to the younger group, it can also be primary school pupils who come after school, whom you will have to inspire in doing homework. In addition, day care professionals will have to accept the fact that on weekends, the mother suddenly gives them her naughty child, who is not so easy to pacify.
Is it possible to arrange costume parties and play skits?
No, costume parties are impossible. Fancy dresses can only be used by children for role-playing games.
What is it - an imaginary friend?
The new creation in “The Sims3: All Ages” is an imaginary friend. An imaginary friend can only see one sim, who interacts with him like any other character. He can play with an imaginary friend, like an ordinary child, for example, start a pillow fight, hug him or have a tea party. This may surprise other characters, since for them it looks at least strange: they see a Sim who is talking to himself, or a wild fight with a pillow flying through the air. Actually, an imaginary friend is like a robot doll, which a sim baby can get as a gift. If he plays with this toy for a long time and develops a relationship with it, then the doll comes to life after a certain period of time. At the same time, an imaginary friend has the same age as the sim. If the sim is a child, the imaginary friend will also be a child and will celebrate his birthday at the same time as your character. He will become a teenager when your child grows into a teenager. If a sim dies, an imaginary friend turns back into a doll and thus can build a relationship with another sim to come to life again.
Does an imaginary friend disappear automatically 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 him for a long time, one fine moment it will disappear.
What needs to be done to turn it into a real sim?
To make an imaginary friend real, visible, and to other sims, you need to get one brown drink that you can create in a chemistry lab. You must put the finished drink in the inventory of the Sim whose friend you want to make real. If the level of relationship between this character and an imaginary friend is high enough, the sim can invite him to become real. The friend who has become a real one no longer has the appearance of a robot doll, he looks like a real sim with colorful hair in a special suit.
Does the ability to get an imaginary friend depend on the qualities of a sim?
Whether a sim gets an imaginary friend does not depend on his character. The only condition here is for parents to order a special doll when the sim is still a baby. The next day, the doll is delivered by mail. Then you can give her baby for the game.
How exactly do movies movies work, and what can you do with them?
In the purchase mode, you will now find a video camera with which your Sims can shoot around or important events. To shoot a video you have to give the command to the active sim to start video filming. Then you enter the camera mode and start the “motor” by pressing the “C” key. The duration of the video is always 60 seconds. During shooting, as always, you can zoom in or out of the camera focus, as well as stop shooting at will. If the movie is ready, you will find in the inventory of the sim video tape, which can then be viewed on your home TV. It is very convenient that the developers have introduced into the game something like an external hard disk, where you can download videos, so that each family member has access to the “video library” of the captured memories, and the tapes are not scattered throughout the house.
Are there new types of death?
No, in the addition of "The Sims 3: All Ages" there is no new kind of death.
Are there new places for WooH?
With the addition of "All Ages" it will be possible to do WooH in the shower, also in the tree house. However, before visiting the house, you must first make sure that there are no children there. ; P
Are there new recipes?
We could not find new recipes.
Are there any new rewards for getting points of happiness?
There will be three new awards: an air bed that hovers above the floor, a drink that freezes the age of the sim, and a legacy.
How many potions drinks are there?
In chemical laboratories, you can synthesize up to 10 different drinks. Including drinks that improve mood or teleport Sima. There is even a drink that stops age - a reward for points of life benefits.
Questions about the modes of purchase and construction
Of course, several questions were asked about the modes of purchase and construction. Here you will find your questions and our answers.
Are baby strollers fully functional?
Yes, baby strollers are fully functional. In order for an adult sim to actually carry a child in a stroller, she must be in the inventory of an adult. If you click on a specific place and choose what you would like to go there with a small child, sim puts the baby in the stroller.
It is difficult to answer the question whether the process is animated correctly when the child is placed in a pram or is pulled back. Sim takes the child and immediately begins to move, as if he had put someone in a carriage. In a single moment, the child suddenly finds himself sitting in a wheelchair, and the adult is already pushing her in front of him.
Will there be a changing table?
No, the game will not have a changing table.
Will bunk beds be fully functional too?
The game will have four different options for bunk beds, of which, in our opinion, only one can be used for teen or adult sims. In addition, each of these four options is available both in the form of only one upper tier, and in the form of exactly two beds, on which two sims can sleep. The upper bed is fully functional.
The platform under the bed, which has only the upper tier, can be used at your discretion. For example, a desk is miraculously installed there along with a computer and an office chair.
Will there be a new skill "chemistry" for the chemical laboratory?
No, for the chemical laboratory did not make a special skill. With it, Sims will be able to improve the skill "logic" when they create new drinks, potions. If a sim has invented a potion, he can then create it as often as he wants.
Will the collections return?
The return of the collection sets, as was the case in The Sims 2, should probably wait a little longer. But in “The Sims 3: All Ages,” they added the function of filtering objects in the purchase and construction mode by source — addition or catalog. On the right, next to the objects, you can find a star already familiar in appearance, which is usually marked by downloads. By clicking on it, you can choose which objects you want to show - only from the base game, or from a specific add-on, or from The Store, or just downloaded objects.
What is the theme used for new objects?
Basically, the objects in the new addition are made for the younger generation of Sims, so they look very funny and colorful.
How many spiral staircases will there be?
There are only two variants of spiral staircases, but they are designed in such a way that they can be suitable for any room due to the change of textures and colors using the Style tool.
Spiral staircases have a certain size or they are variable in the parameters?
No, they are only 2x2 fields.
Will there be other forms of ladders (for example, L / or U-shape)?
The only new form for stairs in “The Sims3: All Ages” is a screw one.
What other innovations are there in construction mode except for spiral staircases?
The mode of construction in the new addon contains some new products. In addition to the two spiral staircases, there is a single new window and not so significant to mention the number of new carpets and tiles.
Is the “tree house” already built on a tree or is it necessary to plant a tree for it?
The tree house is already on the tree. There are 3 different designs.
How they look, you can look at the following pictures:
Is there a water slide or springboard?
No, for the pool there is no springboard or water slide.
How many new objects in the whole game?
We were able to count in the game almost 130 new objects, of which 30 are only in the children's category. In addition, 2 new sports cars will appear in the game.
Is there really a raised indoor podium?
The ledges that appeared in The Sims 3: Late Night remain, until today, the only way to build indoor elevations without the use of codes.
