 New In Game Social Options

Whether you have Showtime installed or have updated to the latest 1.31 patch, you now have an option to log into the game with your Sims 3 Account and use a number of new features. These new features include The Sims 3 Exchange, Sims 3 Store, In Game Player Wall, Simport and the new Game Achievements. Your Sims 3 “My Page” has also changed, so click here for help and information on the website’s changes.

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.



You are not obligated in any way to log in at any time, unless of course you want to take advantage of the new social features and game achievements. 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.



If you decided to log into your game, you will now notice two new options via the options panel, while you are in the game. You can now easily access your Game Wall & Simport.



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. 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 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…



News Feed/Wall Updates (Tab #1)

Your news feed will consist of status updates, photos, Simport requests, memories and completed achievements. This is where all the action happens. You can like, comment and post status updates on your game wall. During the time your game wall is open, the game will auto-pause.





 Achievements (Tab #2)

Your achievements page will show you the latest completed achievements from your game, as well as list all the achievements the game has to offer. You can filter the achievements by type, or scroll through them using the golden area at the top.





Profile/Player Page (Tab #3)

This tab will allow you to change and interact with your profile, just as you can on the Sims 3 website. From here you can post a new status update, like and comment on your updates, register a game, and share memories from your scrapbook.





Friends List (Tab #4)

On the friends tab you can add, remove, click to view and sort through all your friends. There is even an option to check an see who the latest active members were. This option can be helpful for those who want to accept and send Simport requests.





Sims News (Tab #5)

Place Snack Bowl 

You now have a new option to place a snack bowl on counters in your home! Click a counter and “Place Snack Bowl“. Choose from Candy, Nuts or Chips! They each cost §9 Simoleons.





 Career Clothing Customization

There is a brand new option for players to use when choosing a career outfit for their Sims. You can now click a Sim and use the “Change Outfit >> Career” option to change your Sim into their work/profession outfits. You can also customize their career clothing by clicking a dresser/mirror and “Plan Outfit“.

Once you have entered CAS, you can click the “Career” button and begin selecting your career outfit. Use the + button to add up to 3 outfits.





Create a Venue

In the Sims 3 Showtime, players can now build their own unique, one of a kind venue to host performances.  Select any community lot that fits your size needs, and build away! You can also edit existing lots as well.

The Buydebug section of the game contains stages, billboards, venue shells, show floor markers, audience slots and not to mention all the props! Venues can be created outdoors and indoors, which makes for a very creative possibility. To change the venue type, simply select a type via “Edit Town”.





New Social Interaction

Sims who advance in their Showtime careers will be able to use a brand new social interaction. “Ever heard of me?” is a new way to interact with other Sims, and check to see who knows you and who doesn’t!





Hire Professionals

If your Sims need some entertainment, whether it be boredom or a party, they can now use their Cell Phones to hire professionals! Simply “Call for Services” and select from an Acrobat, DJ, Magician or Singer!

Once you hire a professional, they will arrive at your home within 20 Sim minutes of calling them. The only interaction available to you during their performance, is to watch them, but they do give a boost to any party!





 Call for Sing-A-Gram

Sims can now use their Cell Phones to “Call for Sing A Gram”. Choose from Romantic, You are Special, Celebration & Cheer Up. Once you select your Sing A Gram, you can choose which singer you want to come perform for you.

Diva – Diva Sims are amazing and don’t you forget it! When they are good, they’re great, and when they are bad, they’re better!

Social Butterfly – Social Butterfly Sims aren’t happy unless they’re socializing, and will do just about anything to be the center of attention.





Lifetime Wishes


Master Acrobat – Many Sims fall in love with tumbling and jump head first into acrobatics, hoping that their leap of faith will end in sold out performances with crowds of adoring fans.

(Reach Level 10 of the Acrobat Career)



Master Magician – The world of Magic and Illusion seems exotic and mysterious to most Sims. To make it as a magician, your Sim must master tricks ranging from making small objects appear to, to escaping complicated death traps.

(Reach Level 10 of the Magician Career)



Vocal Legend – Everyone dreams of being the next idol, and being worshiped by millions of Sims around the world. But can you work through the years of stress and obscurity to reach the heights of super-stardom?

New Creature – The Genie


There are a total of four ways for you to bring the powers of the Genie into your household. Genie’s can be both male or female, and they carry the same type of powers. Genie’s can grant your Sims a number of different wishes, but your Sims only get 3 wishes per Lamp. The Genie Lamp is indestructible.


❗ Fun Facts ❗

♦ Genie’s Levitate instead of running, and are much faster than normal Sims.

♦ Genie’s are immune to fire, so neither them, or their lamp can perish in a fire.

♦ Genie’s can become ghosts, and they retain all their abilities after their passing.

♦ Genie’s and Sims can woohoo and try for babies. When trying for a baby with a Genie, there is a 50% chance of Genie, or Sim.

♦ Genie’s have longer lifespan’s than Sims.



Genie Lamp via Lifetime Happiness Rewards

The easiest way to get the Genie Lamp, is to save on 30,000 Lifetime Happiness Points and purchase it directly through the LHR panel. Once you have purchased it, it will be placed into your Sim’s inventory.




Genie Lamp via Exploring Catacombs

Head on over to the cemetery in your town after midnight, and Explore the Catacombs! The chances of coming back with the Genie Lamp are extremely rare, but it is possible if your Sim is lucky! The Cemetery in Starlight Shores offers a better than rare chance of giving your Sim the Genie Lamp.





 Genie Lamp via The Electro Dance Sphere

When your Sim reaches level 10 of the Handiness skill, they can upgrade the Electro Dance Sphere, to add the “Dimensional Gate“. The Dimensional Gate is exactly the same as “exploring the catacombs” in the cemetery.

During the time your Sim is inside the Dimensional Gate, a number of pop ups will appear allowing you to choose your Sim’s Adventures. Sims will return with many different items from these adventures, but there is only a rare chance in finding and bringing back the Genie Lamp.





Genie Lamp via a Legendary Performance

As your Sim’s progress in any of the new performance careers, the more likely they are to perform a “Legendary Performance” while on stage. There are a number of admirers that will attend your Concerts, but one of those admirers will offer your Sim a unique gift, which can be retrieved through your home mailbox.






Summon The Genie

Whichever way you have chosen to get your very own Genie Lamp, you are now able to Summon the Genie from it’s lamp. Genie’s offer a variety of wishes for you to choose from, but you only get 3 wishes, so choose wisely.

Once a Genie Lamp is present in a household, it can be used by any member of the home. Genie Lamps are not owner specific, but if you worked hard to get it, make sure no one else uses your wishes!

Genies need to rest after every wish, so you are only allowed one wish every 12 hours. There are a total of 11 wishes for you to choose from, with the 11th wish available to Sims with the Evil Trait.


❗ Sims can interact with Genie’s in the same manner they can other Sims. You can take your Genie out for night in town, be romantic with them, or make them your best friend.



Genie Wishes

Beauty – This wish increases a Sim’s chance of flirting, being kissed, loved etc. This wish beautifies your Sim permanently, giving them a better chance to execute Romantic Interactions successfully. (Cannot be wished for twice) 


Fortune – Need some extra cash? This wish adds a whopping 100,000 Simoleons to your household fund.


Free The Genie – In order to complete this wish, you must have a very high relationship with the Genie. Freeing the Genie from it’s lamp will make it a member of the household. You will need to complete a number of steps to successfully free the Genie. (Explained Below)


Happiness – The Happiness wish gives a Sim the Eternal Joy moodlet (+25) permanently. (Cannot be wished for twice)


Large Family – The Large Family wish, gives a Sim the Feeling Fertile moodlet. This moodlet will last until the Sim Tries for a baby. The attempt for baby will result in triplets every time.


Long Life – This wish extends your Sim’s lifespan by 30 days, serving as a “Young Again” potion, or Ambrosia type wish. (Cannot be wished for twice)


Love – This wish will allow you to choose any Sim in your relationship panel, and make them fall in love with you instantly! Sims will also be given the Enchanted Love moodlet (+10) for 24 hours.


More Wishes – Your Sims can try wishing for extra wishes, but there is only a very rare chance the Genie will grant you two extra’s!


♦ Resurrect Sim – If you have any Sim remains on your lot, you will be able to wish that the Genie bring them back to life, resulting in a Resurrected Sim added to the household.


World Misery (Evil Trait Required) – Finally, the world is as miserable as you are! Your Sim will receive the Miserable (+25) moodlet for two whole days. (Cannot be wished for twice)


World Peace – The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and the world feels just a peaceful as you! Your Sim will receive the Peaceful (+25) moodlet for two whole days. (Cannot be wished for twice)





 Freeing The Genie

When choosing your wishes, one of the wishes is to Free The Genie from it’s lamp. If complete the following steps, you will be able to free the Genie and make it a controllable member of your household. Once you select this wish, you will be greeted with an opportunity to complete.





Once you have accepted this opportunity, you will need to complete a series of steps to completely free the Genie.



Step One – Freeze The Lamp – Click the refrigerator in your home and select “Freeze The Lamp“.


Step Two – Heat The Lamp – Click the oven in your home and select “Heat Lamp“.


Step Three – Explore Catacombs w/Lamp – Go to your local cemetery, click the Mausoleum and select “Take the Lamp Underground


Step Four – Free the Genie – Summon the Genie from it’s lamp in your inventory, and watch it set free from the chains!



❗ Once a Genie is set free, they can no longer grant wishes



The Genie is now a member of your household, and has the same needs as all other Sims. Along with the new found freedom, your Genie can now Ensorcel Non household member Sims,  Banish Sims, Magically Clean Sims/Home, & SummonFood of any type in perfect quality.

Genie’s can Ensorcel Sims that are not part of your household. Ensorcelling a Sim adds then to your Household for four hours, and removes all autonomy from the Sim. Do as you please with this Sim, but after four hours, he/she will return back to his normal life.


❗ A genie can release a Sim from Ensorcellment at any time.






 Genie Offspring

Screenshot-47 Screenshot-49


Once your Genie is freed from the lamp, your Sims can now “Try for baby” with a Genie. There is a 50/50 chance of your Babies being born with Powers. The powers a born genie will have are the same as their parent. They will not be able to grant wishes, but they do have the full powers of any freed from the lamp Genie.

Genie offspring also carry on their genes, and have the opportunity to pass on their powers to their children later in life.


❗ Genie Offspring can begin using their powers as a Child.




New Professions

Sims 3 Showtime is all about the newest professions! Your Sims can become Acrobats, Magicians & Singers! The more your Sims practice, the more interactions & rewards are unlocked, and the better they perform. Will your Sims rise to the top?

As you progress throughout your profession, your Sims will audition for gigs and many of them will turn into steady gigs! Click your Sims to give them their very own Stage Name, so they stand out in front of the rest!

Gigs and Performances

As your Sims’ expertise level increases, the more gigs and performances they will perform. When any Showtime Sim begins their career, they will naturally have to perform enough gigs to increase their talent. Reviews and talent play a big role in a Sims career. The better your Sim gets, the more shows they will put on. If they are good enough, they will get a steady gig, with even more income!






Soon as a Sim joins any of the new careers, they can begin auditioning for gigs at local venue’s, Bistro’s, Coffeehouses and Parks, to gain experience. The more expertise they have the better chances of landing more gigs! Prepare your Sim to impress the proprietors, by practicing the interactions available to them.

Once your Sim is comfortable performing, head into map mode to look for proprietors to audition for. Some proprietors are only available certain times, however you can visit the location and “summon the proprietor”.


❗ Proprietors will marked with an Orange Icon in Map Mode




Once your Sim auditions for a proprietor, they will be informed on whether or not they have a chance to perform the gig. Your Sim is more likely to land small time gigs immediately, but some proprietors will think your Sim does not have what it takes for their location. A little more practice will help make every audition successful!




Denied Gig Accepted Gig


As your Sim progresses in their career and start to get noticed, they may even receive a proposed gig or a Steady Gig! Steady Gigs will allow your Sim to perform at a specific venue on a steady basis. Proposed Gigs are offered to Sims who have been noticed, and those can turn into steady gigs as well. Proposed Gigs are normally offered to level 4 career and higher.

Proposed Gig Steady Gig


If your Sim manages to set up steady gigs, you can keep track of those, and any upcoming (non steady) gigs, via your Gig Schedule. The gig schedule is located in the “Career” tab, and steady gigs will be checked off.


Gig Schedule



Sims can have many gigs (steady or not), as long as they do not interfere with any already accepted gigs. Gigs can be canceled at any time, so just click the location of any gig to cancel it.





Big Show Performances

Once your Sim has done gig after gig after gig, they can start performing big time! Tired of the same ol street and hangout? How about some Big Show Venues! When your Sim has gained enough experience and stage time, they can begin auditioning for Big Shows. If your Sim has made a good name for themselves, they will even be invited to perform a Big Show!

Sims may receive direct notifications from proprietors, or an opportunity within the game will arise.



Big Show Venue Opportunity


No need to worry if you do not get an invite, with the proper skills and expertise, your Sim can visit Live & Big Venues to audition for a Big Show Performance. Proprietors may or may not accept your audition, but either way,  you will be one step closer to the big stage.

When you arrive at the big show, you will be given an option to customize your stage, or use the venue’s stage. Unlike regular local gigs, big show performances come complete with a one of a kind stage, and a huge crowd to cheer you on! Make sure your Sim knows what he/she is doing, or else you may just bomb the show!







Before, During & After Performances

There is so much that goes into a performance, that preparing for it can make any Sim nervous! There are so many interactions and features to experience as a performer, or as a guest at a show. This section will give you some of the basic info you need to nail the performance!

❗ Note that the following options are available during your solo game play, as well as Simport.




Before Performances

Approximately two hours before any Sim is due on stage, you can head on over to the location of your gig/performance and set up the stage. If by chance you don’t arrive early, don’t worry, you will automatically have the option to set up your stage right before the show begins.


Performer's Stage Setup Options


Once you arrive at the location, you can click on the stage and choose to use the Venue’s Setup, your own custom setup, or a previously saved setup.


❗ Note that when/if you save a custom stage setup, you are only allowed one save. If you save a 2nd setup, your original will be replaced.


Set Up Stage at Gig Location


Whichever selection you make will automatically take you into buy mode > Stage Props. From there, you can choose from many different props, lights, backdrops, FX Pods…etc!


Stage Props for Setup





During Performances

Whether you’re the performer themselves, or just a member of the audience, there are always fun things to do! Audience members can interact with performers, and the performer can interact with the audience!

To start off, members of the audience can request interactions from a performer. When you visit a venue to see a performance, simply click the Sim on stage and choose from a pop up menu of options. Depending on the expertise level of the Sim, depends on what interactions you can request.


❗ If you were visiting the performance of an Acrobat, you would have the following options to choose from when clicking the performer (and more depending on their Career Level)…

Request for Performer (Any Show) Acrobat



Another really fun part of being in the audience, is that you can Heckle and Throw stuff at the performer! From “booing” to throwing Cow Plants, the options are endless!



Anything you throw at a performer will land in their Sim inventory, and they can take it home with them. Check out the variety of items for you to throw at performers, and what can be thrown at you!

 On Stage With Magicians

While your Magician is performing on stage, they have an additional option to use the audience to boost their performance! When your Sims have the “Box of Mystery” or the ability to “Levitate Self/Sim“, they can use the extra interactions on stage.


❗ These extra stage interactions are only available to Magicians.





After Performances

After your Sim has completed their stage performance, it is time to find out how they did! If your performance was a success, you may even land a steady gig and some great reviews!





If your Sim did a superb job on stage, they will be given a great review, some more stage time and a moodlet to go with it! On the other hand, Sims who bombed their performance will receive bad reviews and moodlets along with them!

❗ Sims who’s performances are “Legendary” , may even receive the Genie Lamp!






Simfest is a free weekly talent show right in your town! Sims can gather and watch the town’s best (and worst!) performers on stage, and if your Sim is a performer, they can ask the proprietor to join Simfest too! Performers will also gain experience in their career when performing at SimFest.

At the end of the show, a winner is announced, and if your Sim is better than the rest, you will receive a Simfest “Winner’s Trophy“, as well as a “SimFest Winner!” moodlet. Interactions and options at Simfest, are the same as any other performance.


❗ Simfest is a random talent show, and once the game generates a day and time, you will be alerted via a notification and a map view mark.
