The Sim panel displays the skills that the Sim has started working on and these can be reviewed in the skill journal. Inside the skill journal is a tab for each skill with details on: the level of the skill, statistics, various challenges players will encounter, and other helpful information. It is important for the player to get accustomed to his/her Sims panel in-game as it could provide vital, potentially life or death information about the players Sim.

An example is the athletic skill journal, it shows the hours of cardio workout completed, hours of strength workout, distance jogged, etc. Players can open their skill journal by pressing the “J” key or by clicking on a small document under the skills tab. Challenges involving certain skills are also found in the skill journal.
If the player decides to complete these challenges they will earn some sort of benefit, such as quicker completion, better results, etc. The Ambitions expansion pack will reveal the hidden skills that a Sim has also learned.

The Sims 3 careers are business, culinary, criminal, journalism, law enforcement, medical, military, music, political, science, and professional sports. Most of the careers that were in The Sims and The Sims 2 are still in The Sims 3. The Ambitions expansion pack brings new professions, such as firefighter, ghost hunter, investigator, architectural designer, and stylist.
Full time jobs come with opportunities for careers. Part time jobs have a lower pay than full time jobs and don’t offer the career opportunities that full time jobs do, but teen Sims can work part time whereas only adult Sims can work full time. A few of the part time jobs include bookstore clerk, grocery store clerk, spa receptionist, spa specialist, and a gravedigger. Choose your favorite career for your sims and install The Sims 3.
Players can have their Sims look for jobs in the newspaper, the computer, or apply at the building where they want to work. Sims can get by at home by selling paintings, writing novels, playing guitar for tips, or growing fruits and vegetables. Extra money can be gained if the player has a bit of spare cash to invest in a business to receive a percentage of the profits they receive.
Sims relationships with their boss and colleagues as well as objectives that they must complete at work all play a role in the advancement of their career. Players have more control now over how their Sim acts at work, there are options like “Work Hard”, “Take It Easy”, and “Suck Up To Boss”, etc. You can start sucking up to your boss now with The Sims 3!
The Sims performance bar depends on which option the player chooses for their Sim. The Ambitions expansion pack created careers that let players have direct control over their Sim and their actions while they are working. A brand new addition seen in The Sims 3 is branching careers.
Sims can choose certain paths in their careers that make it more specific. For example a music career can be turned into a specialized rock music career. The branches are offered at about level 6 of a career, depending on the career.
The Sim world is open for exploration and Sims can move to new towns. The main world in the game is Sunset Valley and another world that can be used for free is Riverview. Additional worlds can be purchased with sim points at The Sims 3 store.
All expansion packs, excluding Generations and Seasons, include a new world that Sims can move to. Get The Sims 3 download full version PC with ALL of the expansion packs (download link above).
Custom neighborhoods can be created with unique terrains using the Create a World tool. This feature is similar to SimCity 4. Players may also make limited changes, such as adding or removing lots and scenery, to pre made worlds. The Late Night expansion pack divides worlds into “Sims 3 Towns” and “Late Night Towns”, the two are very different considering the types of Sims they each spawn.
The location of Bridgeport is the only pre made world that is referred to as a city, the rest are categorized as suburbs. The open world feature makes it easier for players to load the outside of their Sims house. The Sims 3 allows you to play this open world.
Each house’s time is now matched up with the neighborhoods time, whereas in previous Sims games the time of day was different for each houses lot. This fix allows foe players to interact with any building and Sim in the area.
Players still cannot see inside of commercial buildings called rabbitholes, such as the grocery store, bookstore, theater, police station, and school, but they have limited control over their Sims actions while in these buildings. Other buildings like the library, gym, and the beach house, still allow players complete control over their Sim, and therefore gameplay is not limited to the Sim’s home with the Sims 3.
Building and designing a Sims house has been modified in The Sims 3. In the build and buy mode, the squares that are laid out on the ground have been reduced in size to allow more freedom when placing down objects and furniture. It is also possible in this game to place objects without the squares turned on at all.
Various items and furniture can be recolored and have different patterns added to them with the new feature Create-a-Style. This feature also lets the player build a house with up to five levels, basement included.
Build mode is used mostly for construction and building work. Things like putting in counters and lights are done in the buy mode. The build mode is for actions including adding walls, painting walls, adding doors and windows, lay down flooring, create foundations, raise decks, create basements, add columns and supports, create pools, raise and lower land, create ponds, build gardens, add fireplaces, add more levels to a house, add stairs, and add a roof.
Building cannot be done outside of the Sims lot and walls or foundations cannot be placed one tile away from the lots boundary. Fences may be planted at the very edge of the lots limit and player built structures are limited to five above ground levels and four below ground levels.
Using Buy mode the player can purchase items from the catalog, sell objects they own on their current lot, and arrange object on the lot. Buy mode mainly focuses on furniture and appliances so construction like actions, such as placing doors, windows, fences, or stairs, are not associated with buy mode.
A handy feature that was introduced in The Sims 2 and is still in the game, is the eyedropper tool. This tool can be used to copy the floor covering, wall covering, or almost any object so it can be used again. Another addition to buy mode is the family inventory, when an object is too large to be stored in Sims personal inventory it will go here.
This feature is especially useful when the Sim family decides they want to move to a new town, their household objects can stay here until they are ready to move them and rearrange them at the new house. Purchase any item you would like by download The Sims 3 Game.
The Sims 3 expansion packs provide additional game features and items. The expansions pack World Adventures does not change the gameplay very much at all at least not the careers, skills, and relationships in a Sims life. World Adventures focuses on expanding location. With this pack players can take their Sim to Egypt, France, and China. Cultural activities can be engaged in by Sims depending on the location.
When in Egypt, Sims can visit pyramids and experience snake charming. While in Chine, a Sim can set off fireworks and try martial arts, and in France Sims can take up nectar making. The duration of a stay in a country depends on the visa level, which can be increased by going on different adventures.
The main goal in World Adventures is to go on quests and adventures in new places. Get The Sims 3 World Adventures Download by downloading The Sims 3 found above.
Ambitions is a career focused expansion pack for The Sims 3. There are new career options introduced with this expansion pack. The way gameplay is carried out is different from the non-Ambitious version of The Sims 3. In the original game, when a Sim goes to work the player has no control over them and just has to wait for them to return home.
With Ambitious, players get to go to work with their Sim and control most of their actions. The additional career paths are firefighting, investigator, and stylist. Tasks that are essential to the career are completed with direction from the player. This hands on gameplay is a unique addition to the original Sims 3.

Late Night is an expansion pack that lets Sims travel downtown to the new city of Bridgeport. The downtown locations includes a drive bar, sports bar, local watering hole, dance club, poolside club, disco club, exclusive lounge, vampire lounge, and fusion lounge. Some of these buildings require your Sim to be high class to gain access to the location. Another feature in this pack is the new types of Sims, vampires and celebrities. When a Sim becomes a vampire they receive new abilities, such as increased skill learning speed, the ability of reading other Sims minds, and the ability to run quicker than ordinary Sims. If your Sim is a vampire they can die of thirst. In order to actually become a vampire your Sim must become friends with or become romantically involved with one and ask them to change you. If your Sim becomes a celebrity, they will receive discounts and free food, fan mail, and gifts from Sims. They also gain access to the highest class clubs in the city.

Generations is an expansion pack for The Sims 3 that adds a theme for each Sim life phase. The theme for children is imagination. For teens the theme is rebellious and chaotic scenes like parties while parents are away and pranks are a special addition. Young adults and adults focus on relationships with other Sims, they want to get married and have children. The elders get to enjoy growing old, remembering memories of their life, and watching their grandchildren grow up. Two new traits in general that can be added to a Sim during Create a Sim are rebellious and nurturing. Another random perk to this expansion is the ability to add body hair to Sims.

Pets is the fifth Sims 3 expansion pack and it comes with a new town called Appaloosa Plains. This town includes new stores and shops, one of them being a pet shop. Each pet also has its own special needs that need to be taken care of to keep them alive. Players can play with their pets according to the type of animal they are. Players can play with laser pointers to play with their cats. Unicorns are magical creatures and if they are found the player can add them to their Sim household. They can set fire to things, teleport, and curse or bless Sims. Horses are able to breed with Unicorns. Horses can be ridden by Sims that are at least teenagers. Dogs can swim in pools, but luckily they cannot drown because pets can only die of old age. Players are limited to having six pets in their household at one time. New professions, such as “Horse Handler”, are also included in the Pets pack. Get The Sims 3 Pets by downloading The Sims 3 found above.
