Sims 3 Store: Upcoming World “Hint”

SimGuruSparkle, has shared some limerick on Twitter for the next Sims 3 Store World:


Ultimate Careers Mod Now Available

Hey guys! Remember the Q&A session I had with Zerbu regarding his Ultimate Careers Mod? Well, he has now released it for download! That’s right, you can now have this mod in your game and directly control and influence your Sims while they are at work. Yay!

The end of career rabbitholes is here! With Ultimate Careers, instead of going into a rabbithole to work, Sims will spend the work day at a community lot, doing work-related interactions – or slacking off. A “Perform Job” menu has been added to certain objects, with options for “Work Normal” and “Work Hard”. Using these interactions will increase a Sim’s performance faster than normal, though it will drain their Fun need.

Zerbu was kind enough to allow me to test out an earlier version of the mod and I can tell you that I was blown away by it! I created a random Sim, made a Bistro, plopped down a Food Synthesizer and Bistro Rabbithole Rug and BOOM! I’m controlling my Sim while he was working! I also like how easy it was to set the whole thing up.  I deleted the Bistro Rabbithole from Sunset Valley, made my own version of it, plopped in the Rabbithole Rug and activated the Bistro Ultimate Career from the City Hall. This is what I made and where my Sim went to work.

Now, the mod has only just been released so there will  still be things which need altered – bugs to squish, alterations to how it works etc, so I do strongly recommend that you read through the information on Zerbu’s blog as he has provided a lot of information on how the mod works, what it can and can’t do and things he is considering for the future of the mod.

I would also like to congratulate Zerbu on his success in getting this whole mod working.

Black Friday @ Origin: A Hint of What’s to Come

Via Origin’s Community Blog

It’s obvious the holiday gift-giving season is upon us. Local stores went straight from Halloween decorations to tinsel and tree ornaments. That also means the annual mega-event known as Black Friday is right around the corner.
I can’t tell you much yet, but I can say we’re going to have one heck of a Black Friday Sale in 2013. There are new releases on sale, hot deals on favorites and an online community vote that’ll give you the power to chop a video game’s price to pocket change.
Battlefield 4. FIFA 14. SimCity. Madden 25. All the big names and familiar franchises will be getting some extra love in just a few short days from now. And that love will translate to games in your library and extra spending money for even more Black Friday deals.
Because I like being employed I can’t tell you the exact deals. But hit the Origin store on Nov. 28 and you’ll see exactly what we’ve been working on.One thing I can say: The Black Friday Sale on Origin is much more than just Black Friday. Hint, hint.
The goal is to make it so you’re enjoying the spoils of Black Friday 2013 online … not wasting time in line. It’s a much better way of spending the long weekend, that’s for sure.
Craig Harris, Origin
