The newest Premium Content to add to a Sim’s life, is the super convenient, do it all tablet! With the MultiTab 6000, Sims can Read & Shop Online for Books, Listen to a Tabcast, Play a Social Game, or even give it as a gift to another Sim. Children & Teens have an added functionality, and that is to Do Homework! Homework will be completed much faster on the tablet.
Playing Social games boosts a Sim’s Fun level, listening to Tabcasts boosts a Sim’s Skills, and purchasing books online is a real convenience when you can’t leave home. There are a variety of different Social Games, Books & Tabcasts available.
Tab casts are a new way for your Sims to learn new or existing skills on the go. Select “Listen to Tabcast“, and you will be greeted with 10 options to choose from. Note that the Photography & Nectar Tabcasts will only appear if you have World Adventures installed.
If your Sim is starting out with skills they do not have yet, it will take anywhere from 6-10 Tabcasts, to gain the first skill point. After the first skill point is gained, leveling up will take about 2-5 Tabcasts. Since Sims are able to do other things while listening to the Tabcast, it can take more or less time to complete a full skill level.
Sims will push the tablet screen and add an earpiece to their ear to listen to the Tabcasts. While the skill is gained, Sims will put the Tablet back into their inventory. A flashing red light will appear throughout the duration of skill gaining.
The Tablet includes three “Online Social” games. One game includes popping Donuts & Croissants, another allows your Sim to pop Bats in Space, and the 3rd game is a replica of The Sims Social.
If your Sim cannot leave the house or is just plain lazy, you can easily and conveniently shop for books online with the Tablet! You will be able to purchase any of the books that are available directly through your neighborhood’s bookstore, and then read them on the tablet.
If you have World Adventures installed, the bookstores in each country are NOT available for online shopping. You will need to get your foreign books the good old fashion way.
Having the convenience of reading on the tablet definitely comes in handy when your Sims are out and about. Any books that your Sim has in their inventory, or are available in the Household Bookshelf, will also be available to your Sims on the tablet anytime, anywhere.
If your Sim purchases books that require a higher skill level of any kind, you will not be able to read those books on the tablet until your Sim has a high enough skill level. For example, if you purchase a Cooking Recipe that is above your Sim’s skill level, the recipe will not be visible in the tablet until your Sim has a high enough skill to read it.
