The Golden Ticket Toy Shop
The Golden Ticket Toy Shop is a separate venue included with the Gold Version of this world, and is home to the exclusive Titanic Toy Machine. This venue also includes the Savvy Seller’s Register, which allows for the toy shop to be a functional business.
The Titanic Toy Machine
The Titanic Toy Machine allows Sims to create an array of new interactive toys. You can find the toy machine in buy mode under “Misc. Entertainment” for 1,900 Simoleons. The Toy Machine can be used by Sims Child-Elder.
The following toys can be created with the Toy Machine:
♦ Teddy Bear (Child – Elder)
♦ Misfit Monstrosity (View Only) – This is the result of Sims failing to create a toy in the machine.
♦ Doll House (Toddler – Child)
♦ Train (Toddler – Child)
♦ Robot (Toddler – Child)
♦ Baby Play Mat (Infants)
♦ Kite (Child – Elder) – Kites attract lightning and Sims who fly a kite run the chance of being struck by lightning even without Seasons installed.
♦ Clown-in-a-Box (Child)
♦ Drum (Toddler – Child)
♦ Racecar (Toddler – Child)
♦ Baby Bricks-a-Lot (Toddler – Child)
♦ Balloon Animal (View Only)
♦ Table Blocks (Toddler – Child)
Aside from creating a specific toy from the list above, Sims can also choose to create a “Random” toy. When selecting this option, Sims will create one of the above mentioned toys. Toys can be created with the Toy Machine, or purchased directly via BuydeBug & the Toy Store.
Savvy Seller’s Collection
The Savvy Seller’s Collection consists of brand new objects that allow your Sims to run a business. The main object used to run a business is the register, and you can find it in buy mode under “Misc. Entertainment” for 100 Simoleons. The Register can only be used by Sims Teen-Elder.
Aside from the register enabling any lot to run as a functioning business, this premium content also includes rugs, pedestals, wall shelves, and a car space, used to showcase items when creating a business in any world. Any and all buy mode objects placed on these showcase items are automatically enabled for sale.
The following showcase items are included in the Savvy Seller’s Collection:
♦ Cash Register: The cash register allows your active household (teen and older) to “Tend” to the business, check sales performance, set lot hours, hire and fire Salesclerks (NPC’s), and browse the selection of items for sale in on any business lot.
♦ Shop Door: The shop door allows you to give the business a name, and set the opening and closing times for the shop. Unlike the register, the shop door dictates what time the business closes, rather than what time the lot shuts down.
Both the register and shop door can have the same opening and closing times, but the door allows for you to give your current shoppers more time to browse when the lot no longer accepts any more visitors.
♦ Pedestal: Items placed on this object will be automatically enabled for purchase. You can set the Markup, Sale Price, and purchase items directly from this object.
♦ Rugs (5 sizes): Items placed on these objects will be automatically enabled for purchase. You can set the Markup, Sale Price, and purchase items directly from these objects.
♦ Shelf: Items placed on this object will be automatically enabled for purchase. You can set the Markup, Sale Price, and purchase items directly from this object.
♦ Parking Space: Cars placed on this object will be automatically enabled for purchase. You can set the Markup, Sale Price, and purchase items directly from this object.
To create an run your own business on a commercial lot, place any of the Savvy Seller’s Collection showcase items on the lot, place objects from buy mode on them for purchase, be sure to include a register to enable the lot as a functioning business, and label the lot as a “Hangout”.
❗ When creating a business on your home lot, you must “invite” other Sims over to shop. Residential lots will not automatically attract buyers.
❗ To make a profit while running a business, you will need to purchase the community lot on which the business is located.
❗ Items in your shop will automatically be replaced when purchased, which ultimately allows for huge profits. There is no restocking fee.
