A Life for the Traveling Sim
Electronic Arts are constantly spinning out new expansion packs for The Sims for their rather large Sim gaming community. The Sims 3 World Adventures was the first expansion pack released for The Sims 3. Here is a basic guide for The Sims 3 World Adventures walk through.
As with all of the expansions, it is required to have the base game of The Sims 3 in order to install and play World Adventures.
This expansion pack also comes with $10 free SimPoints able to be used in The Sims 3 Store online.
World Adventures lets your Sims travel to: China, Egypt and France. In order to book your vacation, you can either use your cell phone or go on your computer. Time off work is given and your Sim doesn’t even have to worry about that while on vacation. Having some of The Sims 3 cheats helps with other things while vacationing though, such as making needs static.
Visa Points allow your Sims to vacation for longer amounts of time in each country. You do however, have to collect these Visa Points for each country separately by doing quests while visiting. These quests can have you collecting items, and even doing secret quests in tombs searching for treasure.
China: Shang Simla
Shang Simla is the city you can visit in China. The city is set in a peaceful mountainous area near a Great Wall. It features beautiful cherry trees, Chinese elms, deep green hills and teaches the discipline of Martial Arts.
It costs $800 for the first Sim to travel here, and $1,000 for each additional Sim.
Sims bow to each one another instead of shaking hands here. They also have a hidden trait that allows them to eat with chopsticks. You can’t use a car here – only The Kenspa, bikes, and motorcycles.
Your Sim can buy a Fortune Factory Fortune Cookie Maker to take home with them, which gives Sims the ability to bake fortune cookies and read the fortune – and receive the corresponding moodlet if it is good or bad.
Sims practicing the art of Martial Arts can buy and bring home with them a Sheng Hei Training Dummy and a Board Breaker to practice while away from China.
Sims can learn the Stir Fry and Egg Rolls dishes for their cooking skill while here.
Sims can buy fireworks and set them off. These are viewable while looking at the Map View of the area.
