New In Game Social Options
The latest 1.31 patch, has added the option to log into the game with your Sims 3 Account and use a number of new features. These new features include In Game Player Wall, and the new Game Achievements. Once you start up your game, you will notice a new option at the main menu to log in.
❗ Note that you will need an internet connection to log in and use these new social features.
If you choose to continue without logging in, a pop up prompt will appear to remind you, that you are not logged in. Click “Do not show this message again“, and this message will disappear for good.
If at any time you want to log in after you have entered the game, you can go to the Game Options via the Options panel in your game. Once there, log in and you will be able to use the social features.
You will also notice that Twitter and Facebook credentials have been added. These options will allow you to connect your game with your Twitter and Facebook accounts. You will be able to automatically share what you choose to these networks. This is completely optional and does not affect the regular sims 3 social options when not linked.
From this tab you can also choose to disable your online notifications that will pop up when new activity is happening on your player wall and within the social network.
The Game Wall can be easily explained as an in game “social network”. You will be able to access your Sims 3 Profile and also communicate and share in game activity with friends. It basically gives you the option of using the sims 3 website, in game.
While you are in the game, you will notice a new notification box that will remain in place at all times while online. You can minimize it, so it doesn’t interfere with your screen. This is basically a shortcut for you to post a status update onto your profile.
Any friend requests, simport requests and other social activity will pop up in this box. You can disable these notifications by visiting the game options via the online game menu.
You can double click your avatar on the above photo and it will take you directly to your news feed and player wall. Once there, you will be greeted with 5 new game tabs…
