The Sims 3 Lucky Palms is the newest world to The Sims 3 Store, released on June 28, 2012. Lucky Palms is a world that is very different from other released store worlds such as Hidden Springs or Lunar Lakes, as we finally received a desert world other than the desert world in The Sims 3 World Adventures. Lucky Palms is far different from Egypt in World Adventures, by a lot in fact, because Lucky Palms includes way more for your Sims to do, plus your Sims can actually live and work in Lucky Palms.
The world has a unqiue story to it just like all other worlds in The Sims 3. While I won’t go into too much detail on the story, at one time the world had many lakes but a few of the lakes have dried up around a part of the world, which your Sims can also live near. Lucky Palms comes in two versions, a standard edition and a gold edition. The difference between them is that the standard edition does not include The Lucky Simoleon Casino where the gold edition does. By having the casino it allows for your Sims to make a little extra simoleons (gold).
Starting A New Game
Since Lucky Palms was a new world, it was time to start a brand new game! I knew a little bit about what to expect from seeing the multitude of screenshots and reading the information, and also attending the live chat, but seeing the world in person through my own eyes I was very impressed. While the screenshots do show a lot of the great detail that went into the world, the screenshots don’t show everything. In fact the screenshots don’t even do justice once you’ve seen the world in a new game.
