    In this section I'll give you a breakdown of the ways to play this addicting
    game.  There is three different modes to play in, Get a Life, Two-player mini-
    games and finally The Sims.
    
    *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
    
                                         Get a Life!
    
    *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
      It is in this mode you'll unlock doo-dads for the other play modes.  You can
    unlock the mini-games, or random items that make the game a bit more fun.  In
    this mode you move from level to level, completing the goals then moving out.
    You must play this mode before you can play the other modes of the game.
    
    *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
    
                                  Two-player Mini-games
    
    *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
      These are unlocked in the get a life mode, and they range from well, umm..to
    tell the truth I haven't played any of them because I don't have anyone to play
    with ;_;  if you've got something to say, give me a jingle (happybudda311 (at)
    aol (dot) com).
    
    *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
    
                                        The Sims
    
    *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
      This is the uber-addictive game that started it all, screw with stuff, the
    more families you build the more friends and parties you can do, fun stuff.
    You must at least "start a life" for this mode to open.  You don't even have to
    save, or you can use a cheat code.

    =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
    In this section I'll give you the break down of all the crap you can do to make
    your sim look pirty.  You also decide the personality of your sim through
    custom or a pre-set zodiac sign.
    
    
    *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
    
                                            Body
    
    *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
    This is where you decide what kind of clothes your sim will wear.  They don't
    have nearly enough different styles of clothing, and most of it is kinda
    preppie, which isn't something I'm into.  I usually create a guy with a black
    T-shirt, with white long sleeve under, plaid plants, plain black shorts and a
    black backwards hat.
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                         Skin Type
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     This will choose what color skin your sim will have.  There is plenty of
    different choices, from near white, tan, black, though it'd be cool to have
    purple colored sims...
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        Body Type
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     This section is where you pick your sims body type, how fat or skinny, and how
    tall or short he is.  There is no one to change this after you create the sim
    so pick wisely what you want.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        Upper Body
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Here you can pick from a good deal of upper body clothing, from short sleeves
    to long sleeves, hooded sweat shirts, or no shirt at all, it's all here.  I
    usually go with long sleeved shirt, with t-shirt on top of it.  In the next
    section you will pick the color of the shirt by fiddling with the bars on the
    screen.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        Lower Body
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Like upper body, there are tons of choices to choose from for your sims pants.
    You can go with shorts, long pants, or thongs and boxers.  The next section
    will allow you to change the color of the clothing by fiddling with the bars on
    the screen.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                       Shoe Style
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     There isn't too many different shoe styles for you sim, you can choose from
    loafer to boat, it really doesn't matter, you can't zoom in to get a good
    enough look at them anyway.  The next section allows you to change the color of
    the shoe by fiddling with the bars on the screen.
    
    
    *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
    
                                           Head
    
    *^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*
     This is important, as you'll be looking at this a lot.  Sometimes you get a
    really ugly sim, so you need to get the vanity mirror, it helps with the ugly
    ones.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        Face Style
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Try to pick a good head, this may be a bit hard with females though.  If you
    pick an ugly sim you'll have to look at it the whole time, which can be rather
    unpleasant.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                         Hair/Hat
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     In this section you'll pick what kind of hair your sim will have, or if he/she
    wears a hat.  In the next section you can decide what color the hair/hat is by
    fiddling with the different bars on the screen.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             Facial Hair (Male Sims only)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Facial hair can make a man look well distinguished and older more mature.
    Though sometimes it's just goofy looking or ugly.  Cycle through the different
    styles to see if any fit well on your sims face.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                               Make Up (Female Sims only)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     As in real life, females without make up are generally pretty ugly.  You can
    also use the make up to make your sim a Kabuki Girl (Oriental traditional
    dancing woman).
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                               Variations (Kid Sims only)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     There is some really messed up stuff you can do to your kids, like give them
    face paint.  Now this is where you can make your sim kid a loser, or the
    "biggest hunk/babe" in all of "Sim Elementary".
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        Eye Color
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     This will decide what color the eyes of your sim are.  It's not really that
    important, as any picture you see of your sim will likely be too small to
    notice.  Unless you're playing on a 50 inch plasma screen, in which case, I
    hate you.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        Accessories
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     It is in this section where you will add accessories to your sims face.
    Anything from sunglasses to prescription glasses, as well as earrings can be
    found in this section of the creation process.
    
    
    ^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^
    
                                             Done
    
    ^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^
     Hitting this will finish up the look of the sim step in the creation process,
    and move you on to the next section of the process, the personality of the sim.
    Choose wisely the next steps or you will be stuck forever, or at least until
    aliens abduct your sim.
    
    
    ^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^
    
                                           Personal
    
    ^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^
    It is in this section that you'll pick what kind of sim you have, below is the
    listing of what each of the traits will mean, as well as a list of pre-set
    personalities (Zodiac signs).  Choose wisely as the only way to alter these is
    to be abducted (look through a telescope and hope you get lucky).
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                         Messy-Neat
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     If you have a high rating here your sim will pick up after themselves.  It's
    not that big of a thing though, you can hire a maid instead which is pretty
    cheap and she'll do all the cleaning.  You can also buy the monkey butler,
    which costs a bit more, but is better for after party cleaning.  Unless you can
    do enough stuff to keep him busy for that $20.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                       Shy-Outgoing
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     I always pick shy, that way the social bar drops less and you don't need to
    socialize your sim as much.  Doing this also saves me the much needed trait
    points I could use for something else.  I'm pretty sure if you have a shy sim,
    his disposition with other people will also rise much slower.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        Lazy-Active
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     You'll want to put a lot of points into the this, the more you have the easier
    it is for your sim to get into bed, and learn new things, also his energy bar
    drops slower.  However, if you plan to have a stay-at-home sim, this doesn't
    matter at all.  Save the points for something better.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                      Serious-Playful
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The only thing this will alter is what your sim likes to play with.  If you
    choose playful, then there is more things you can buy to appease your sim,
    which is easier, as you have less thinking to do.  Though a serious sim is
    cheaper to keep happy, but it's harder to do it.  So it's your choice mate.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                         Mean-Nice
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This is a measure of how nice your sim is to other sims.  It affects how well
    you get along with others while doing a group activity (Eating, playing pool,
    hot tubbing, etc).  I believe this also affects how quickly the disposition for
    other sims rises, so I usually put quite a few points into this.
    
    
    ^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^
    
                                       Star Signs
    
    ^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^
    Your Star sign will pick what kind of personality your sim has, without you
    having to custom do it.  I usually just pick my sign (virgo), so my sim
    resembles me I guess.  I will include the dates of the signs, so you can pick
    yours if you didn't know it.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                               Aries (march 21 - April 19)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Messy   5/10  Neat,
     Shy     8/10  Outgoing
     Lazy    6/10  Active
     Serious 3/10  Playful
     Mean    3/10  Nice
    
    Aries are middle of the road for most traits, though they are more outgoing
    then others, they tend to be serious and mean.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                Taurus( April 20 - May 20)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Messy   5/10  Neat
     Shy     5/10  Outgoing
     Lazy    3/10  Active
     Serious 8/10  Playful
     Mean    4/10  Nice
    
    Taurus's are middle of the road like Aries, they tend to be much more playful
    then others.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                 Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Messy   4/10  Neat
     Shy     7/10  Outgoing
     Lazy    8/10  Active
     Serious 3/10  Playful
     Mean    3/10  Nice
    
    Gemini tend to be more outgoing and active then most, but are often more
    serious, mean and messy then other signs.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Messy   6/10  Neat
     Shy     3/10  Outgoing
     Lazy    6/10  Active
     Serious 4/10  Playful
     Mean    6/10  Nice
    
    Average stats across the board cancers are the closest to the middle of the
    road as it gets with zodiac signs.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                Leo (July 23 - August 22)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Messy   4/10  Neat
     Shy    10/10  Outgoing
     Lazy    4/10  Active
     Serious 4/10  Playful
     Mean    3/10  Nice
    
    Very outgoing, though they lack in all the other qualities that make a good
    sim.  Not my first choice for a sim personality.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            Virgo (August 23rd - September 22)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Messy   9/10  Neat
     Shy     2/10  Outgoing
     Lazy    6/10  Active
     Serious 3/10  Playful
     Mean    5/10  Nice
    
    This is my sign, and for me it's true, but for my little brother who's also a
    virgo, it's nearly the opposite.  We tend to be neat, but shy, we can be
    active, if the modd is right, and if you're nice to us, we'll be nice to you.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             Libra (September 23 - October 22)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Messy   2/10  Neat
     Shy     8/10  Outgoing
     Lazy    2/10  Active
     Serious 6/10  Playful
     Mean    7/10  Nice
    
    Not very neat, but certainly outgoing and nice, Libra's are the type of people
    you'd want for a friend, but not a roommate.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                          Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Messy   6/10  Neat
     Shy     5/10  Outgoing
     Lazy    8/10  Active
     Serious 3/10  Playful
     Mean    3/10  Nice
    
    Active people Scorpio's are, but everything else is kind of in the middle,
    though they tend to be serious, and mean.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                       Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Messy   2/10  Neat
     Shy     3/10  Outgoing
     Lazy    9/10  Active
     Serious 7/10  Playful
     Mean    4/10  Nice
    
    Another messy group you wouldn't want as a room mate, they're active and
    playful, but they leave crap everywhere.

                         Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Messy   7/10  Neat
     Shy     4/10  Outgoing
     Lazy    1/10  Active
     Serious 8/10  Playful
     Mean    5/10  Nice
    
    Here's room mate material, They can pick up after themselves but they like to
    sleep in, which makes them ideal for the stay-at-home sim.   You'd think
    somebody with the same zodiac sign as Jesus would be nicer and a bit more
    active.  I guess Jesus was really lazy...
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                          Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Messy   4/10  Neat
     Shy     4/10  Outgoing
     Lazy    7/10  Active
     Serious 6/10  Playful
     Mean    6/10  Nice
    
    This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius, age of Aquarius!!.. Not sure what
    the hell that song was about, but Aquarius are a good choice for your sim, as
    they are pretty well rounded, but more active so they'll learn things.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                            Pisces (Febuary 19 - March 20)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
     Messy   5/10  Neat
     Shy     3/10  Outgoing
     Lazy    7/10  Active
     Serious 3/10  Playful
     Mean    7/10  Nice
    
    Pisces make for good sims, they have high marks in the areas that count, and
    low marks in ones that don't, good for a room mate or your personal sim.

    In this section I'll be telling you all about the skills, what they effect,
    which are important and how to build them.  Now there is three really important
    ones, and three not so important skills.  The important ones are Cooking,
    Mechanical, and Creativity, the non-important ones are Body, Charisma and
    Logic.  The non-important ones only show up for jobs, where as the important
    ones will affect your home life.  With all sims, you'll start with none of
    these filled out even one point.  So go to the miscellaneous section in the buy
    mode and find some things to buff these up so you won't have such a tough time
    climbing the corporate ladder.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                           Cooking
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Cooking measures how will you can cook.  If you have no cooking points and you
    try to cook something, chances are good you will burn down the house.  Also the
    higher you're cooking, the less likely fires are to occur, and your sims that
    you cook for will be more fulfilled by meals.  The only way to raise cooking is
    to read a book.  The only problem with cooking is that it isn't needed for any
    job, so it's good for stay-at-home sims to learn to do.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        Mechanical
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Your mechanical skill will determine how well you can fix things.  If something
    breaks you can fix it, which may take a few seconds or a few minutes depending
    on the thing that has broken and the mech skill, or you can call a repair man,
    which costs $100, so do it yourself, it's cheaper.  Also lots of the jobs
    require you to have at least a few mech points and for the first two levels in
    get a life mode, you'll need at least one.  So hit the books as that's one of
    the ways to earn mech points, the other is to buy the woodworking bench.  Now
    if you have a high mech skill you can use the woodworking bench to make gnomes
    for $100 a pop (If your mech skill is maxed out).  These gnomes take about a
    minute to make each, so you can really rake in the cash.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        Creativity
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Creativity is more important for throwing awesome parties and for making money
    from home.  There is tons of ways to get creativity points, and almost all of
    the jobs want you to have some.  The ways to get it can be from playing an
    instrument (piano or guitar), or making a piece of art (sculpture or painting).
    If you have maxed creativity points you can play an instrument to get the green
    plusses jumping (you need these for good parties) or you can create a piece of
    art for up to $1,500 (with the artists block).  Creativity is a necessity to
    any stay-at-home sim.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                            Body
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now for the un-important three, these are only good for job skills, they don't
    have any apparent affect to home life.  Body is a measure of how much you can
    bench or how long you can run, stuff like that.  Nearly all professions require
    you to have some body points, and they can be earned a few ways, first off, you
    have exercise equipment, or you can go swimming in a pool. This skill is not
    necessary for the stay-at-home sim.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                         Charisma
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Here's another un-important thing, this is really only used by a few
    professions, but those professions need a TON of it.  So if you're a musician,
    movie star or Thief, you'll want to invest in a mirror, as that's the only way
    to build this skill.  Like the other two non-important skills, this is not
    necessary for stay-at-home sims.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                           Logic
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Logic is only important in the later levels of most of the professions, though
    not for the stay-at-home sim.  The only two ways you can get it are by looking
    through a telescope, or playing chess.  I recommend playing chess, as the
    telescope can get you abducted by aliens, which will screw up your personality
    traits.  Sometimes they'll make them better, other times worse, it's Russian
    roulette, but I don't like to take the chance.

    In this section I'll be giving you the break down of all the crap you need to
    do to unlock things in this game.  You'll know how to do it, how to keep the
    other sim happy and productive.  As well as some ways to quickly get the goals
    done so you can move on or unlock the bonus.
    
    One important thing to note is that if your co-sim starts the level with a job,
    chances are good that you will fail if they get fired, so look after the co-sim
    as well.

    ^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^
    Co-Sim: Mom
    Speed Bonus: Guitar if you finish in 1 day or less (24 sim hours)
    
    Here's the quick way to do it, read a book, mechanical first, then 2 cooking
    (until you get 1 and 2 points respectively), now fix the TV.  Next run over and
    fix dinner, after that go read the paper, find a job, don't get picky, you can
    change it in the next level, so pick the first one.  Then go into buy mode and
    sell stuff until you have $800.  The level will clear, you'll "owe" your mom
    however much money you made from the sell, she'll take all that money from your
    "Bank Account" but you won't owe her past that.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                         Fix T.V.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    When you first wake up, you'll want to read a mechanical book, then fix the TV
    if you're not going to steal from your mother, she'll need to be in a good mood
    to lend you the money.
    
    Reward: Vanity Table
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        Cook dinner
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    You must start dinner without starting a fire, so you'll need at least one
    cooking point, two works better, and you'll need the point later, so why not?
    Read the books, go to the fridge and select "Serve Dinner".  The more points
    you have, the better fed your mom will be and the more likely she'll be to loan
    you the money.
    
    Reward: Aroma master
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                        Get a Job
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This is easy, go to the paper, and pick the first one you see.  It doesn't
    matter as you can pick and choose what you really want to do in the next level.
    For now concentrate on speed, you want that guitar.  You must do this after
    fixing the TV and cooking a meal, or you're mom will just yell at you and you
    will not take the job.
    
    Reward: Treadmill
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                   Get $800 to move out
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Just sell $800 worth of crap, the grandfather clock is worth enough I believe,
    that's it.  Or you could become buddies with your mother and ask her, but that
    takes too long.  It makes a difference between getting that guitar, and getting
    nothing, so sell some crap.
    
    Reward: Unlock the mini game "The Museum"
    
    Now you'll move to Dudley's "Party Pad" Which has been thoroughly trashed, have
    fun!

    Co- Sim: None, but dudley pops in and bugs you A LOT.
    Speed Bonus: Coat of arms in (?) days
    
    The best way to do this is quickly, try to get all the crap out of the way,
    pick a job you actually want, and do all the cleaning and fixing on the first
    day, this way your sim will be happier when he/she goes to work.  Even if you
    have to miss work, fix the stuff and clean the place up first.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                   Fix the Broken Crap
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Read a book to get an extra mech point to accelerate the process of this.  You
    have to fix the TV, the Computer and the Expresso machine, I believe you don't
    have to unclog the toilet, but you'll eventually need to use it, so why not do
    it now?
    
    Reward: Handy man service
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                    Clean up the crap
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This should be the first thing you do, it'll take a bit of time, but just
    ignore everything else until this is done, even if someone comes to the door,
    just ignore them, the coat of arms is hard to get.
    
    Reward: Maid service

                                   Upgrade the house
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Make the house worth around $36,000, to see how much it's at go to buy mode,
    see that little thermometer thing on the right side, at the top will be the
    money the house is worth.  I usually get a better toilet, and better kitchen
    stuff, as well as a pinball machine.  I sell the TV cause it doesn't do diddly
    squat for the house value or the fun rating as well as the couch, and buy a
    nice "Deiter" couch.
    
    Reward: Bug Zapper
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                             Get Promoted to level 2 and 3
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Just do what you need to do to get to the next level, see the next section to
    find out what that is, or press the career button on the D-Pad and fill in the
    yellow bars for skills and make sure your friends are in the green.  Then make
    sure your sim goes to work with his happiness bar 2 into the green, he should
    then get promoted.
    
    Reward: Level 2: Beverage Cooler
            Level 3: Teppan yaki Table
    
    When you finish all this good stuff dudley will come around and be like "OMG
    OMG WTF j00 r teh c00lzorz plz come live wit me!!!?!!?!?oen.  But you soon find
    out, dudley is a slob and a loser so you must move out ASAP.

    Co-Sim: Dudley
    Speed Bonus: Head in a jar (8 days)
    
    Note: Buy a Security system, as there is a burglar or two in the level.
    
    The quickest way to do this, is to find a person to move out with first, then
    make friends with them while getting promoted, then each time you get a bonus
    buy some stuff.  Try to get Dudley promoted, it's not that hard all you need to
    do is send him to work in a good mood.  Also make sure Dudley doesn't get
    fired, if he does, you must start over.  I'm not sure if you can kill Dudley
    off though, it'd be interesting to try.  Anyways, throw a raging party then ask
    the selected sim to move out.  It's difficult, but it can be done.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                    Upgrade the House
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    You need to get the house worth up to around $54,000.  To see how much your
    house is worth go to buy mode and look the top-right hand side of the screen.
    I usually buy a Piano, Pool Table and Tapan Yaki table, as they are all good
    for parties.  A pool is also a nice addition.
    
    Reward: Tree Swing
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                              Get Promoted to levels 4 & 5
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Improve what needs improvement, select the career screen on the D-pad and fill
    in the yellow bar, and make sure your friends are in the green.  Now making
    friends is'nt hard, all you have to do is have Dudley make the friends, you
    don't actually have to know them, it's just family friends.
    
    Reward: Level 4: Strip Poker Table

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                       Move Out with a "Roomie" at a raging party
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    The reason I have this before the raging party goal is because it's best to
    have a friend you plan to move in with all ready.  I usually pick betty, so
    have dudley call betty and invite her over, and introduce you too.  Then work
    up a relationship, when it's at around 70-80 throw the party.  It's help to be
    Uber close to the person, that way you can sleep in the same bed and not have
    to buy a second one, and build a second bedroom.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                  Throw a Raging party
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    First get everything ready, you need Pizza, Hamburgers Tepan Yaki, and some
    home cooked food.  Next make sure the house is clean, after that go to the
    phone and select "Throw Party" after you do that, call everyone else you know
    and invite them over.
    
    Too be declared a "Raging Party" the number of "green Pluses" has to be a shit-
    load.  Good food and conversation do this well.  The hot tub really gets this
    going as does a pool-table.  Now if you can play in instrument really well,
    play it for everyone, and the pluses will go on.
    
    Make sure you throw the party early, take the day off work to get everything
    ready, if you throw it early people will be less tired, and stay longer.  Now
    when the screen "You've thrown a raging party" pops up, make a bee-line to the
    person you want to move out with.
    
    Reward: "The Motel" mini-game
    
    
    Note: If you see Bobo-the bum, (he first appears here, though he'll be in every
    level afterwards) go up and greet and feed him, and you'll unlock "The Park"
    mini-game.
    
    Now it's time to pick up a lady... or a man depending on the gender of your
    character.

    Co-sim: Betty (or whoever you picked to be your room mate)
    Speed Bonus: Jukebox (8 days)
    
    When you come into this level, Betty will not have a job, now you can do one of
    two things, get her a job, or let her be a "Stay-at home" artist.  Basically
    you build up her creativity and Mech, and build Gnomes and Paint pictures all
    day.  You can make much more money, and you'll have a sim to mess around with
    all the time.  Plus if you plan on throwing a party, your sim can go to work
    and Betty can do all the preparation.
    
    Note: Buy a security system, because there is a burglar or two in this level.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                    Upgrade the house
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    You need to get the house worth to $49,000-$50,000 to get this goal.  You need
    to do this before you can throw any parties.  I usually get a Tepan Yaki table,
    a nice stereo, some decent art and a second hot tub.  I usually also get a few
    new kitchen appliances and some extra chairs.  As well as better toilets and
    two Sonic showers.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    First you need to meet a "Party Girl" I usually pick Debbie, then get to know
    her really well, like 80s-90s with a heart.  She's a sucker for compliments,
    she'll almost always take them.  You'll also have to flirt when you have a high
    disposition with here to get the heart instead of a friend smiley face thing.
    Anyway, get that up, throw a raging party then select "Try and Score".  It
    isn't what you think, your sim will propose and they'll get married, then
    you'll move into a new house.

    When you get this level you have two rooms full of crap and an empty house, so
    you'll need to spend some time moving things, and re-building sections of the
    house, a bigger kitchen is defiantly better.  I make my spouse a "stay-at-home"
    sim.  Basically I build up her creativity and Mech and have her sculpt, paint
    and make gnomes all day.  She also takes care of the kids when my sim goes to
    work.

                              Raise 2 kids & Keep them in school
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Kids appear periodically, after enough naturing care they turn into kids.  They
    are pretty easy to care for after they're no longer babies.  What you'll need
    to do to keep them in school, is make sure they go happy, and they study a lot.
    Have them read books and study on the computer to raise their grades, they'll
    need to have at least A- averages to get into prep school (a goal in the next
    level).
    
    Rewards: Sand Box
             Sprinkler
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                   Upgrade your house
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    While buying crap for your kids to play with, you'll probably get this, if you
    don't, well buy more crap.  Simple as that, the goal here is to reach $74,000
    in the house worth.  To check it, go to buy mode and look in the upper right
    corner.  I usually get all the good stuff for the kids, such as the sand box,
    sprinkler and the funinator deluxe.  I also buy a pool table and a hot tub, as
    well as a pool.
    
    Well that's it, one more level to go, and you can finally just play for fun
    with all the stuff (if you unlocked it that is).  This next level is all about
    retirement.

    Co-Sim: Your Wife and Kids
    Speed Bonus: A movie, though you really don't need to have a certain time to
    see it.
    
    Use your wife to get a cooking of 10, and a ton of money, while your main sim
    goes to work and pays the bills, get the 20,000 and kids at prep school first,
    the party should be the last thing you do.

    Improve what needs improvement, select the career screen on the D-pad and fill
    in the yellow bar, and make sure your friends are in the green.  Now making
    friends isn't hard, all you have to do is have Debbie make the friends, you
    don't actually have to know them, it's just family friends.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                Send your kids to prep school
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Both of your kids must go, and both of them must have at least an A- average.
    You need to have $1,500 per child to send them there though.  It helps if you
    started this task last level, but if not, just make sure those kids work their
    asses off studying.

                              Save $20,000 for retirement
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    With your wife a stay-at-home sim, making tons of money and you raking in the
    dough, this task should be easy.  Just make sure you don't spend it.  Though
    you need to spend a little cash to set up for the raging party.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                   Throw a Raging party
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    First get everything ready, you need Pizza, Hamburgers Tepan Yaki, and some
    home cooked food, you should have full cook points by now.  Next make sure the
    house is clean, after that go to the phone and select "Throw Party" after you
    do that, call everyone else you know and invite them over.
    
    Too be declared a "Raging Party" the number of "green Pluses" has to be a shit-
    load.  Good food and conversation do this well.  The hot tub really gets this
    going as does a pool-table.  Now if you can play in instrument really well,
    play it for everyone, and the pluses will go on.
    
    Make sure you throw the party early, take the day off work to get everything
    ready, if you throw it early people will be less tired, and stay longer.

    This is the game that started it all, here you can just play the basic game,
    but the first thing you need to do is just start "a life" then this will become
    playable.
    
    After that, you'll need to create your sim, or use the pre-set sims.  You can
    also just jump into a house in progress, where the designers have already got
    everything set-up for you and you just run the house.  If you'd rather use pre-
    created sims then you'll want to pick an empty lot or house, or evict a family.
    From there you put in the furniture you want and/or all the building additions
    you'll be making.
    
    The next step is to enjoy yourself, there isn't really a goal or a point to
    this part of the game except to kill time and have fun.

    This is my "little" section on all the jobs you can pick from, included is all
    the base info you'd need to get promoted.  I personally always pick musician,
    because with all the creativity you have, playing instruments at a party
    usually puts everyone in a good mood.  At the end there is a little section I
    included called "Working with Employment" for the Stay at home sim, which
    really helps in the level "Who Loves Ya Baby".  Remember the car will always
    come an hour before you work, but will leave at the time you're set to work, so
    you don't need to freak out when the car comes.

    I always pick this job, because the creativity is good for painting to make
    money, or entertaining other sims with some music.  It pays just as well as the
    other jobs, and is decently easy to pass through.

    What ever happened to good movies, I haven't seen a decent movie (in the

    want to get up and do stuff?  The only thing movies these days make me what to
    do is stand up and leave the theater.  Though I just wasted $10, and that's if
    I went alone, what a world.

                                     Stay-at-home Sim
    
    ^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^*^
    What is it?: A Stay-at-home sim does just that, they stay at home and make
    money from there.
    
    Why do that?: Because you don't need a maid, and there's much more money to be
    had, as well as you can raise kids, throw parties and make friends much easier.
    
    Cool, What do I do?:  Well you need skill in the following areas: Cooking, Mech
    and Creativity.  Then buy a Wood working bench, Canvas, and Artist block.  Then
    sculpt and paint all day.  A Gnome is worth up to $100 and takes seconds to
    make, a painting can be worth $200-300 and takes a few minutes, and a Sculpture
    can be worth $1,500 and takes all day for your sim to make.
    
    Pretty good idea isn't it?

    Don't forget to water plants or they will die.  As long as they aren't dead the
    increase the beauty of the room.  Lack of flowers will drop your room rating as
    you leave the house to go to work, which make the sim less happy.  If watering
    is to time-consuming, you can always hire a gardener, or buy Major Domo (monkey
    butler).
    
    From paintings to random crap, this stuff just looks cool, paintings are
    usually better then plants as they usually have a higher room rating, and they
    don't need to be upkept, however they tend to cost a lot more.
    
    Two things aren’t included here, one is a gnome and the other is a sculpture,
    the reason is visiting sims seem to go out of their way to trip over these and
    break them.  So you'll just want to sell them when you make them.

    Turn on the stereo and feel the effects of fun, as long as the sim can hear it
    they'll be in a better mood.  This is true, I feel that music is a great
    motivation for almost anything.  Like right now, I'm listening to some Fast,
    loud and great punk music (The Vandals \m/) to keep from falling asleep while
    doing this oh-so-boring section of the guide.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Price: $3,999
    Needs Points: 8 Comfort, 10 Hygiene
    Skill Points: N/A
    Description: The pinnacle of bathing.  It takes about 30 seconds to get fully
    clean, and it uses NO WATER.  Which means if it breaks it won't spill and messy
    sims won't get water everywhere.  The downside is kids can't use it.  You MUST
    keep it clean though, if there is ever flys on it, it'll just fuck up and spin
    your sim out of control, which doesn't do anything but lower his comfort.  It's
    pretty funny to see your sim get flung like that though.

    You walk on this stuff, but beyond your aesthetics it really doesn't effect
    anything.  There certainly is a good deal of them though.  Waste of money in my
    opinion, I usually just go with the cheap stuff.

    concentration camps.

    call a gardener for a small fee everyday.

    Pools are a great addition to any home as they increase the room value which

    all that wasn't enough it builds your body, one of the hardest skills to build.
    The only problem is that you can't build custom pools, perhaps maxis will add

    Hello, thank you for reading this guide.  If you cared enough
    to read this far, I might as well entertain you.  I'm a 16 year old Virgo and I
    am a senior at Millard North High School.  In my free time I am either on the
    Gamefaqs message boards (Current events, The FAQ contributor Social Board, or
    the punk board), or playing my Xbox, Ps2, or my NES. With whatever time is
    left, I sell tacos in a little shack by the side of the road for $6 and hour,
    which is slowly taking over my life with it’s “OMG WE GIVE j00 more hours than
    j00 wantz0rz Benny FWARG!” attitude.  Then I use my time machine to travel back
    in time, and fit playing hockey into my schedule.  This will be my nineth
    FAQ/Walkthrough, and I feel that writing walkthroughs has really given me
    something better to do than watch some of the crap on television now days.
