Work From Home

The Sims 4 City Living has added the ability for Sims to work from home when joining the Critic, Social Media, or Politics Careers. This allows Sims to have a more active role in gaining career performance without having to send them off to work.

10-31-16_4-45-52-pm

An hour before Sims are required to leave home to go to work, an alarm notification will appear on the lower left hand side of the screen. From there you can choose to “Go to Work”, “Work from Home” or “Take the Day Off”.

ts4_x64-2016-10-31-16-48-29-34

When opting to work from home, the game will generate two randomized tasks for the day. Completing those tasks before the next work day will guarantee a performance boost that is added to the payment received at the end of the work day.
 

—————————————————————————————–

Haggling

The Sims 4 City Living adds the ability for Sims to persistently dispute the cost of goods in order to obtain goods at a bargain. Haggling is an interaction that is only available when interacting with vendors at a Food Stall or Street Store Table.

• Heartless Haggler (Embarrassed +2) – Sometimes, the price of trying to lowball is failure. This moodlet results in a 0% discount.

• Heroic Haggler (Confident +1) – It’s not easy convincing someone to take fewer Simoleons for something they’re selling! This moodlet results in a 25% discount.

• Buddy Discount (Confident +2) – If it’s a discount what is wanted, it pays to be known around town. This moodlet results in an “At Cost” discount and requires the “In the Know” reward trait.

10-31-16_9-25-38-pm

 

—————————————————————————————–

Street Performer

When Sims head into the City to explore the world, they are most definitely going to run into the “Living Statue” street performer. Sims have limited interaction with these NPCs, but using the “Tip” interaction will unlock a variety of CAS assets for your Sims to wear.

11-04-16_10-29-20-pm

Once a Sim tips the street performer, they will unlock the street performer outfits and face paint in Create-a-Sim. Sims who wear the entire outfit will be able to head out into the street and “Busk for Tips” to bring in some extra simoleons. Don’t quit your day job though!

11-04-16_8-38-06-pm

These new recipes work similar to a skill, where they must be eaten and learned in order to be cooked at home. Sims who have a level 1 or higher Cooking Skill will automatically learn the recipes when eating the dish from a Food Stall. In order to cook all 27 of these new recipes at home, Sims will have to spend the time eating them all.

Spices

Spices are a type of exclusive swag bought from the Swag Vendors at the Spice Festival. Having these spices in their inventory will reduce the cost of ingredients when Sims cook certain new recipes added to the game. The following spices are available for purchase:

Image
Name/Cost
4
Chili Powder (§5) - Extremely Spicy blend of habanero and jalapeno chilies. Behind the excruciating heat are notes of fruit and nuts. Perfect to spark up a soup, salsa, sauce or rub.
3
Wasabi (§10) - This green root is grown in mountain streams. Many have gone to great lengths to replicate its hot flavor. Most wasabi products in the stores are fake. Many think wasabi is the nostril burning paste served with sushi, however, almost always it is a concoction of horseradish, mustard, and green coloring.
2
Curry (§15) - Curry is in fact one of the cheapest spices. Although used in many common dishes it gets compared similarly to saffron for its ability to transform the color of food, the culinary uses of the two spices should not be confused and should never replace saffron in food dishes.

1

Saffron (§25) - Coming from the dried stigmas, it takes an astounding 75,000 blossoms or 225,000 hand-picked stigmas to make a single pound which explains why it is the world’s most expensive spice.

Death by Pufferfish

One of the many new recipes available with The Sims 4 City Living is “Pufferfish Nigiri”. This dish can be cooked at home by Sims who have learned the recipe after eating it at food stalls. Any Sims who eat this dish run the risk of Death by Pufferfish. Sims who survive a Pufferfish Nigiri meal will receive the 4-hour “Thrill of Defying Death” confident moodlet, but that doesn’t make them immune to death. Are you willing to play Pufferfish Roulette?

❗ If you own The Sims 4 Get To Work Expansion Pack, you’ll be happy to know that the Alien lifestate is automatically immune to the Pufferfish Death.

puffer-death

Sims who die of pufferfish will appear in the world with a pufferfish floating and swimming around inside of their chest. Need another reason to avoid this dish?

1City SkylineCommon§10The City Skyline Snow Globe features the bustling city's towering buildings. At this size, the scope can be realized in a way that's just too big in real life. Breathe it in and adore its beauty.
2Haunted MansionCommon§10While the Haunted Mansion has some similarities to the Goth House in Willow Creek, it's not based on their house. The Goths are actually really sweet and quite alive. Well, until they die. Then the similarities are purely coincidental.
3NewcrestCommon§10The Newcrest Snow Globe features the iconic pink willow tree indigenous to this suburban neighborhood. Folks all around town gather under the tree to catch some shade or take pictures with this cotton candy-like vegetation. Except this one is trapped in a miniature sphere. The Newcrest Snow Globe is featured at the Romance Festival.
4The City BridgeCommon§10Crossing the bridge to get to the city has never been more miniature! Instead of spending time in the slow, torturous traffic, just dream about it as you gaze into the headlights crossing the bridge. Then promptly smash the little bridge into thousands of pieces.
5The Willow Creek Lighthouse Common§10The Willow Creek Lighthouse has been a beacon for ships passing through transporting goods into the small harbor. While the lighthouse hasn't been lit for 34 years, the light has been captured in this tiny, memorable snow globe.
6Tudor House Snow GlobeCommon§10The Tudor House represents the charm of Windenburg - quaint, simple living. Living abroad can be quite different from living in the city. Cherish this small memento as the life you wish you had.
7Yuma HeightsCommon§10A lovely depiction of Yuma Heights in miniature form! Reminisce of simpler times and create new memories as you look fondly at this globe in your collection.
8EmilyUncommon§15Emily has been around for hundreds of years, lurking the waters of Windenburg. She emerges every 52 years to greet the citizens of the city, but she's usually met with fright, horror, and disgust. So she submerges back to the depths of the sea to build up the courage to face those who may one day accept her presence in the land from over the pond. The Emily Snow Globe is featured at the GeekCon.
9Freezer BunnyUncommon§15Freezer Bunny's are notorious for being cold and cute. This one, trapped in a globe, is no different. It is a snow globe, after all. The Freezer Bunny Snow Globe is featured at the Spice Festival.
10Magnolia SteamboatUncommon§15The Magnolia Steamboat runs along the river down Magnolia Promenade. The boat stops frequently so Sims can tour the numerous retail shops and take in the scenery.
11Stanley the JackalopeUncommon§15Stanley the Jackalope is said to watch over Granite Falls. In the still of the night, Stanley would watch over nearby campers, ensuring bears steer clear of Sims enjoying nature's beauty. Well, except for Sims in bear suits. He can't do anything about those nerds, unfortunately.
12The City SkyscraperUncommon§15The City Skyscraper Snow Globe displays one of the iconic skyscrapers that adorns this city. Its beauty is captured by the radiant lights, illuminating the architecture of Uptown's proud monument. The City Skyscraper Snow Globe is featured at the Humor and Hijinks Festival.

City Poster Collectibles

The Sims 4 City Living introduces the brand new “City Posters” collectibles. Posters are found on the back sides of the decorative “Electrical Boxes” found in random areas of the world. Additionally, some of the posters might pop up in random “Boxes o’ Junk” on the streets.

Careers

The Sims 4 City Living introduces three brand new careers to the game: Politics, Social Media, and Critic. When choosing any of these three careers, Sims will have the option to work at home or at the office. Detailed info for each career is available below.
 

 

Political Career

The Politician Career is one of three brand new careers in City Living. All promotions and branches require a Confident mood, and the only skill needed is Charisma, making it fairly straightforward career. The very first level requires that your Sim choose one of five causes to support (Foundation of Less Mischief, World United, No Sim Left Behind, Speak for the Trees or Simoleons for Everyone) by clicking on your Sim and choosing from the Political Career option. The Daily Task for first four levels is promoting the cause you’ve chosen, which is a friendly interaction under a new Political Career option. It’s very easy to fulfill, although some Sims may reject the interaction.

Suggested Aspirations: Friend of the World and Fabulously Wealthy

Suggested Traits: Ambitious (Politician Branch), Self-Assured, and Outgoing

Ideal Mood: Confident

11-06-16_6-57-25-pm

At Level 1, Sims gain the ability to Protest after they choose a cause, which can be started anywhere by clicking the ground. Sims can gain a Confident moodlet when their protest is noticed and Sims join it, or they can gain a Sad moodlet when ignored.

At Level 2, Sims gain the “Check Cause Progress” interaction with the computer, which shows how many Sims have joined the cause; it is much more relevant to the Charity Organizer branch as it disappears with the Politician Branch; Sims also gain the a “Debate Politics” interactions, which become more relevant at Level 5. At Level 4, Sims gain the “Give Expert Speech” option at podiums, which can give a Confident moodlet when done. These interactions can be a task needed for promotion when working from home.

11-06-16_8-09-35-pm

When your Sim reaches Level 5, you can choose between the Politician Branch or the Charity Organizer Branch. Both play very similarly, requiring that your Sims appeal to others, which can provide a challenge as Sims now come with new political views. Your Sim can either Debate Politics from the Right or Debate Politics from the Left, and the first one you choose determines your views. Switching between these views while talking to a Sim may cause an Embarrassed moodlet. Flip-flopping isn’t the best way to get Sims on your side.

The Politician Branch requires that your Sim Secure Votes for promotion. Although the Daily Task will always include securing votes, they only need 20 votes in total to reach Level 10. They can secure votes more than once with any Sim, ages Teen and up. It’s much easier to secure votes with Sims that have the same political view as your Sim, but with a high enough Charisma skill and a Confident mood, they can occasionally convince a Sim of the opposite view. The easiest way to secure votes to first debate and then use the Promote Policies interaction before asking for votes.

The Charity Organizer Branch is the more challenging and least rewarding of the two (if you don’t consider make a difference rewarding, that is). Sims may reject higher donation requests and your Sim’s schedule doesn’t have consecutive days, which can make promotions harder to get; the bonuses are also pitiful in comparison to the Politician Branch and at the Level 10, you make less money per day and only work 3 days per week compare to 4. However, just as with votes in the Politician Branch, while your Sim will always have a Daily Task requiring you get donations, your Sim only needs to raise a maximum of $20,000 to reach Level 10. And, again, just as with votes, you can ask ages Teen and up for donations.

Social Media Career

The Social Media Career is interesting, although it can be tedious. Your Sims’ promotion through both the Public Relations and Internet Personality branches require they gain followers on their social media profile, which can be tricky to raise as each attempt can either raise significantly, slightly, not at all, lose some or lose a lot of followers. The branch splits early at Level 4.

Suggested Aspirations: Friend of the World, Chief of Mischief (Internet Personality), and Joke Star (Internet Personality)

Suggested Traits: Genius, Outgoing, Geek (Both) and Goofball, Mean, Hot-Headed, Childish, Self-Assured (Internet Personality)

Ideal Mood: Playful (Levels 1-3 and Internet Personality), Focused (Public Relations)

The Public Relations Branch is the easier of the two, requiring just 10,000 followers, max Charisma and a Focused mood to make it to Level 10. The days are consistent and the hours long enough that your Sims can get promoted at a decent rate. The branch’s Daily Task is to Network with Journalists, which can either give your Sim no followers or around 150 followers, and can be done multiple times with no cool down. When your Sim first enters the branch at Level 4, they gain the ability to Represent Friend, which can help friendly Sims get a performance boost; this is later updated at Level 10 with Represent Anyone which can be performed on any Sim your Sim knows to help boost their work performance.

As for the work from home interactions, they usually involve emails, representing friends or talking to coworkers. All in all, it’s a fairly simple and easy going career choice. It’s also the most profitable of all the careers provided in City Living. (Public Relations earns round $12,684 per week.)

The Internet Personality Branch is likely the most difficult and involved career path in the expansion. It’s suggested you max out your Sim’s Charisma before jumping into this branch. While the branch doesn’t need it at max (it only requires Level 7), your Sim will need to get 25 million followers to reach Level 10 of the career; in order to get 25 million followers before your Sim keels over from old age, they will need to go far and beyond the Daily Tasks, using the higher level social media unlocks Charisma provides, such as Upload Viral Videos, which can get over a million followers in one go. Your Sim should be updating as much as they possibly can to get as many followers as possible. During the lower levels of the Charisma skill, make sure your Sim uses the Status Update From Venue and its better equivalences when your Sim is out and about, as they will give you a good amount of followers, no matter how high or low the Charisma skill is.

Many of the interactions needed to gain followers, along with the Ideal Mood, are best performed when they are Playful; however, as your Sim progresses through the career, they will unlock options that require Confident, Focused and Angry moods to perform well. For instance, once they reach Level 5, they can Record Rants which often gain tens of thousands of followers when your Sim does it while Angry, but may lose many followers if they are not Angry. (So, while not the fastest way to get followers, you can make your Sims career based on getting mad, as some internet stars are want to do in real life.)

The working from home portion requires that your Sim go out and do a variety of socials with Sims, from telling jokes, pranking them or even being mean. There’s also updating statuses at venues or doing specific posts. It’s suggested you work from home as often as possible so you can raise your followers faster.

What makes this career rather frustrating, is hours and cash. Starting at Level 7, your Sim will be working just twelve hours a week, and at max level making just slightly over §500 Simoleons per hour. (The only other top career that makes less cash is the Charity Organizer career.) If your Sim wants to live solely on the Internet Personality career, they will need to take Sponsors, which will always lose followers.

Critic Career

The Critic Career is one of three brand new careers in City Living. All promotions and branches require an Inspire mood and Writing. The career branches between Art and Food at Level 4 and have unique skill sets required for each, with Food Critic requiring cooking skills and Arts Critic requiring art skills.

Suggested Aspirations: Any of the Creativity Aspirations

Suggested Traits: Creative and Goofball

Ideal Mood: Inspired

The first three levels are very simple, requiring leveling up the Writing skill. At Level 3, Sims gain the Recommend Local Hangout and Respond to Mail interactions; both will be a random task assigned when working at home, although only Respond to Mail will provide any sort of benefits or hindrances—Respond to Mail will randomly give Sims a variety of moodlets, such as Happy, Angry, Sad or Playful.

As for both the Food Critic and Arts Critic branches, they play the same, with your Sim having to go out and review food or performances, although your Sim can alternatively write columns to fulfill the Daily Task, so they needn’t ever leave their home lot. Both branches are easy but may take a while to get promotions with the multiple skills needed to be built up and short hours; the Arts Critic has especially short days at five hours.

Both branches will require wiring columns, books, answering emails and such.

MyShuno Meadows

Surrounded by both trees and the cityscape, Myshuno Meadows is a great place for a relaxed wedding or outdoor birthday party. Centered on Barnabas Skye’s old Observatory, part of the area has been converted into an event space while still retaining the original telescope.

MyShuno Meadows is a special lot neighborhood with a 64×64 Central Park venue. The surrounding environment contains butterfly gardens, a lake, and a small playground. It is brought to life with six historical monuments that tell more about the lore behind San Myshuno. Reading all six of the monuments unlocks and completes a hidden achievement.

Myshuno Meadows History Plaque

This Park was once the estate of scientist and herring baron Barnabas Skye. After his mansion was gutted by fire, the fish mogul gifted his extensive gardens to the people on the proviso that his personal Observatory remain standing and free of use to any budding astronomer living in the city. To this day the telescope is maintained and updated by the Barnabassian Scientific Society.

Herring Monument Plaque

This Plaque was erected to mark 150 years of fishery in our fine city. From the humble kedgeree peddlers of the gold rush era to the mighty height of the Canning Industry, the noble Spangled Herring (Clupea Pallasii Fabulousa) has been the slippery, silvery key to the fortunes of this city. As we step into a bold new century, let us not forget the bounty of the sea, nor the piscine origins of our metropolis.

Llama Freedom Movement Plaque

On this spot the Llama Freedom Movement was born. A simple protest, known as the Llamoid Sit-In, shocked the public with its extreme use of acoustic guitars, hair flowers and slightly tuneless singing. Though many years have passed since that day, the spirit of activism remains alive and well, and will continue until all Llamas are free to strut and spit and neck wrestle to their heart’s content. (Plaque paid for by the Llamean Popular People’s Front)

Lot Traits

The Sims 4 City Living has added 24 new lot traits available for use on all lots (including apartments and venues) in any world. Each trait has a unique effect that can change how your Sims interact with the lot, including skill boosts, animations, and building personality.

Some lot traits are hidden specifically for special apartments and they cannot be used on other lots. Lot traits remain intact when the lot is shared on The Sims 4 Gallery.

Apartments

New with The Sims 4 City Living is the ability to move into and live in apartments. Unlike other lots in the game, Apartment buildings cannot be built independently. Instead, you are able to alter the apartment within the outer shell with the build/buy tools.

2016-10-31-14

Selecting an apartment on the world map will bring up a view of the apartment building floor where 2-3 apartments are visible. Selecting each section will reveal the deposit/rent as well as more information about the lot. When moving into an apartment, your Sim will need to pay the initial deposit to move in. After that, rent will be due weekly.

The common area contains four pertinent objects to apartment living: A bulletin board, an elevator, mailboxes, and the trash chute. You will be able to see neighbor Sims come into the common area and shift through their mail, take their trash out, or walk to the elevator.

Bulletin Board – The bulletin board is mostly used as a way to know which festival is about to take place. You can also leave a Passive-Aggressive Note or an Affirming Note based on your Sims’ mood. Reading these notes will give your Sim a moodlet depending on the type.

11-01-16_2-24-43-am

Noisy Neighbors – Sometimes, a neighbor will be a bit noisy. Heart or music icons will indicate where the sound is coming from. Sims will obtain negative moodlets for noisy neighbors and will be able to either use the “Pound on Door” or “Knock Politely” interactions on their doors. Once your Sims’ neighbor comes out, you can interact with them as you would any other Sim, and ask them to keep it down.

Note: Sometimes a neighbor will not hear your knock on their door.

10-30-16_10-44-35-pm2

Lot Traits – Some apartments have lot traits that you are unable to change. This is because some shells have objects (or pests) in them that require specific traits. The “Needs TLC” lot trait includes electric boxes and pipes that will short circuit and leak respectively. Needless to say, this will cause your Sims to feel very negatively. They can either attempt to fix the object themselves or use the Complain to Landlord interaction.

ts4_x64-2016-11-01-02-35-04-85

Landlords – Your Sims’ relationship with the landlord directly influences if the Landlord will fix the broken objects in your apartment. They can sometimes outright refuse to help, leaving your Sims to fix it themselves.

10-30-16_10-48-05-pm

Rent – Rent is due on a weekly basis, and rent amounts vary depending on the apartment. If Sims fail to pay their weekly rent, they will have each of their utilities turned off one by one until they pay. Rent can be paid on the computer, cell phone, or mailbox.

11-01-16_4-32-34-pm

Pests/Filth – Some of the lower end and cheap apartments will also include special pests like cockroaches and mice, and sludge filth that leaks through the sewers. Pests will give Sims a series of moodlets as they try to fend off the heebie geebies. Sims can take things into their own hands and use the “Obliterate” and “Exonerate” interactions against these pests in an attempt to deter them, or call the landlord to rid them for you. Additionally, Sims can clean up the sludge with a mop.

11-01-16_4-59-27-pm 11-01-16_4-22-36-pm

Give/Revoke Apartment Key – When Sims establish a good relationship with other Sims, they can hand over an Apartment Key. This allows friends to come and go as they please.

Additionally, once a key is given, the option to Revoke the key becomes available. Sims who hand out multiple keys will experience Pop Ins, Game Nights, and Hangouts.

Penthouses

The Sims 4 City Living adds the ability to build Penthouses on the top of certain Skyscraper buildings. All three penthouse lots are the epitome of a penultimate lifestyle. They are placed atop decorative buildings that do not have any limitations beyond their lot size, so you can use them for residential and commercial venues. When building Penthouse Lots you will need to place the “Elevator” objects for Sims to travel up and down the building.

Fountainview Penthouse (Residential, 30×20, §83,188)Boasting some of the finest views in the Arts Quarter, this penthouse is prime real estate indeed. Includes the Great Soil and Natural Light Lot Traits.

1 Torendi Tower Penthouse (Residential, 40×30, §244,343)This huge penthouse with a priceless view of the Fashion District has room for everything! With permits for complete interior remodeling, owners will be able to create the perfect home, no matter how grand their visions. Includes the Party Place and Sunny Aspect Lot Traits.

Stargazer Lounge (Lounge, 40×30, §124,821)Rooftop party, anyone? This decadent penthouse property overlooking the city has arguably the best bird’s eye view of San Myshuno the market has to offer! Includes the Romantic Aura Lot Trait.

Festivals

The Sims 4 City Living introduces a new local event called Festivals. Each of the 5 Festivals are exclusive to San Myshuno, and 2-3 random festivals spawn in the world every week. Festivals are chosen at random, so repeat festivals will not happen within the same week. Festivals have the following dedicated day and time slot:

  • The Flea Market (Sundays 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.)
  • Humor and Hijinx (Mondays 5 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.)
  • GeekCon (Tuesdays 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.)
  • Spice Festival (Fridays 5:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.)
  • Romance Festival (Saturdays 5:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.)

To see when the next festival is going to take place, you can use the “Read About Festival” interaction on the bulletin boards in apartments, or read about the festival on dynamic signs located around San Myshuno. The informational pop-up for each festival will let you know what activities, competitions, and schedules are relevant for each festival.

When the festival begins, an identifying jingle will accompany a pop-up notification letting you know the festival is about to begin. When the festival is active, the notification will also allow Sims to teleport to the festival if they are in a different neighborhood.
 

Festival Swag

Festivals include exclusive Swag Stalls that allow Sims to purchase exclusive, festival-only items. Items that are available at festival swag stalls include the following:

  • T-Shirt
  • Bubble Bottle
  • Mortar
  • Roman Candle
  • Spark Fountain
  • Sparkler
  • Spinner
  • Snow Globe

Each festival has its own exclusive Swag, like a dedicated T-Shirt, that unlocks in CAS. Festivals are also home to different types of fireworks and bubbles, and other theme-related items. The Spice Festival, for example, is home to the all-new Cooking Spices.

10-30-16_11-15-12-pm

 

Flea Market Festival

Schedule: Fridays 5:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.
Location: Spice Market

The Flea Market is a simple festival that has low prices for furniture and decor objects. Street vendors will be selling their wares, and of course, you can haggle with them to get the prices lower. Haggling can also have the opposite effect, and result in embarrassing moodlet and zero discount. The following interactions are available at the Flea Market Festival:

Trading – This is the perfect chance for trading off duplicates of extra inventory items. During the Flea Market, Sims can use the “Ask to Trade Collectibles” interaction to select any qualifying object in your inventory. The object you give in return is the same type of random collectible. Sims can trade the following types of items:

  • Crystal
  • Fossil
  • Frogs
  • Metal
  • My Sim Trophies
  • Posters
  • Snow Globes

10-31-16_12-38-58-pm

Sometimes the vendor will not be in the mood to trade. Your Sim can improve the relationship with the vendor and change their mood to increase the chances of successfully trading with a vendor. During the Flea Market festival, your Sims are also able to sell their own inventory objects.

Note: The Flea Market does not have a swag vendor, but does have some food carts.

10-31-16_9-07-37-am

 

Humor and Hijinks Festival

Schedule: Fridays 5:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.
Location: Arts Quarter

The Humor and Hijinks Festival is an event for Sims to participate in the Pranksters and Jokesters challenge. Sims can choose their team by drinking tea from the fountains.

Dark Tea (purple) is for Pranksters and Light Tea (pink) is for Jokesters. Both teas give a buff for their respective skill gains. When your Sim performs interactions for comedy or mischief, they will earn points for their team. The score is kept in the Notifications and at the end of the festival, one team will win. New interactions for the challenge include:

Jokesters – Impersonate Pranksters, Impossible Sausage Mime, Poke Fun at Pranksters, and Be Sarcastic about VooDoo

Pranksters – Imply Jokester Sabotage, Convince Tea is Poisonous, Imply Tea Sabotage, and Sing the Prankster Theme Song

Exclusive Swag – The Humor and Hijinks festival includes an exclusive Swag Stand where Sims can purchase this festival’s exclusive items. Exclusive items available for purchase are:

Schedule: Tuesdays 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Moodlet: Among Geniuses (Focused +1)
Extras: Increased Skill Gain on Lot

The GeekCon festival is the perfect place to work on more logical skills. During this festival, you’ll be able to participate in competitions that are indicated by glowing 3D gaming rigs or computers. There is also a rocketship already built that your Sim can use, or you can build one beside it. Cosplayers (Sims dressed up in costumes) are usually spawned during this festival. The following competition is available at the GeekCon festival:

Hackathon – This competition is for Sims with higher Programming Skills. It will start when the computers at the festival start to glow. Use the “Enter Hackathon” interaction to take part. At the end of the event, a notification will appear announcing the winner. Your Sim could receive a computer or a Future Cube as a participation prize.

Ultimate Gaming – This competition is for Sims with higher Video Gaming Skills. This competition starts when motion based gaming consoles around the festival start to glow. Use the “Take Ultimate Gaming Test” interaction to take part in the competition. At the end of the event, a notification will appear announcing the winner. Your Sim could receive a computer or a Future Cube as a participation prize.

Exclusive Swag – The Geekcon festival includes an exclusive Swag Stand where Sims can purchase this festival’s exclusive items. Exclusive items available for purchase are:

Spice Festival

Schedule: Fridays 5:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.
Location: Spice Market
Moodlet: Savory Aromas (Inspired +1)

The Spice Festival is a cultural food festival that takes place in the Spice District. It has the most food carts of all of the festivals which makes it ideal for collecting new recipes and ever changing harvestables. While attending the Spice Festival, Sims can partake in the following challenge:

Spicy Curry Challenge – To the side of the festival is a bright red table that holds four plates of Spicy Festival Contest Curry (which is Vegetarian-Safe). Using the interaction to “Attempt the Spicy Curry Challenge” will direct your Sim to come pick up a plate of it.

Your Sims’s hidden ‘spice tolerance’ will contribute to the failure or success of the challenge. Being the Curry Champion allows your Sim to brag about the challenge and unlocks a special t-shirt in CAS.

Exclusive Swag – The Spice Festival includes an exclusive Swag Stand where Sims can purchase this festival’s exclusive items. Exclusive items available for purchase are:

  • Chili Powder
  • Curry
  • Saffron
  • Wasabi
  • Freezer Bunny Snow Globe
  • Green-themed fireworks and bubbles

Spices are a type of exclusive swag bought from the Swag Vendors at the Spice Festival. Having these spices in their inventory will reduce the cost of ingredients when Sims cook any of new recipes added to the game. The bubble blower is also conveniently located at the Spice Festival. That way, if your Sim gets a bit of a hot mouth from the Spice Challenge, they can go over to the object to chill with the Snow Flurry favor.

10-30-16_11-10-55-pm

 

Romance Festival

Schedule: Saturdays 5:00 p.m. – 1:00 a.m.
Location: Fashion District
Moodlet: Savory Aromas (Inspired +1)

The sweet fragrance of love is in the air at the Romance Festival. Drinking the Sakura Tea from the fountain will give your Sim a Botanic Fragrance (Flirty +2) moodlet. Sims with this buff active will glow with a faint pink aura. Once you have wet your feet at the festival, get ready to get some love advice from the Romance Guru. This NPC will give your Sim a moodlet based on his insight on the Sims’ future in relationships. He will also interact with your Sim and spread the romantic vibe by throwing petals.

The Romance Festival also houses painting easels, and a wedding arch complete with fireworks. With all this in place, your Sims can have a “Heat of the Moment Proposal” and get married on the spot. Who needs Vegas?!

Exclusive Swag – The Romance Festival includes an exclusive Swag Stand where Sims can purchase this festival’s exclusive items. Exclusive items available for purchase are:

  • Newcrest Snowglobe
  • Red-themed fireworks and bubbles

11-13-16_12-46-00-am

Aside from the stalls that spawn on public lots, 13 of these food stalls are available in buy mode for your Sims to place at home, or when building lots in any world. The international food stalls are included in the bunch, which are home to 27 new recipes.

The new recipes work similar to a skill, where they must be eaten and learned in order to be cooked at home. Sims who have a level 1 or higher Cooking Skill will automatically learn the recipes when eating from a Food Stall. In order to cook all 27 recipes at home, Sims will have to spend the time eating them all. The following stalls are available in buy mode:
