    ******************************************************************************
    GET A LIFE WALKTHROUGH
    ******************************************************************************
    
    This is, for the most part, the most important part of this FAQ. This is a
    complete, in-depth walkthrough to the Get A Life mode, which is the story mode
    in The Sims.
    
    
    Creating Your Sim
    -----------------
    
    The first screen you will come to after clicking on the 'Get a Life' button is
    the screen in which you will create your sim. You can edit everything about 
    your sim, below is a list of exactly what you can edit:
    
    Family Name - Before you do anything, you must put in the surname of your sim.
    
    Personal - You can edit your sim's first name, gender, and his/her personality
               points. Please look im the next section about Personality Points.
    
    Body - Edit your sim's skin tone, body type (thin, normal or fat), what shirt
           they where and what colour it is, what they were on their legs and what
           colour that is and what shoes (if any) they where and what colour they
           are.
    
    Head - Edit your sim's face style, hairstyle and hat type and the colour of
           that, facial hair (if any) and the colour of that, eye colour and
           accessories (glasses or earrings and necklaces).
    
    Then click on done when you are finished creating your sim. Now your life can
    begin!
    
    Note - To find out the choices when creating a child sim, look at the 'Play
           The Sims' section of this guide.
    
    
    Level 1: Dream House
    --------------------
    
    DIFFICULTY - Very Easy
    GOALS - None
    
    After creating your sim you are taken to a massive house with lots of
    expensive accessories. This is your chance to get to know the controls a bit
    better. You can 'Use' an item by hovering over it and clicking on the X
    button. After about 5 seconds you get a message that comes up which is your
    sim wondering where the hell he is. Click X after you have read this message.
    Straight afterwards, in a flurry of smoke, a hot woman appears right in front
    of you. Then, for no apparent reason, you kiss. Your sim must know the woman
    because he says 'Roxy, what are you doing here?' straight after the kiss. Roxy
    then walks over to the hot tub and gets in. After about 10 seconds, Roxy
    invites you to join her in the hot tub. When you get in, the level is
    completed. But remember, you don't have to get in the tub straight away,
    explore a bit, as you might not see any of the items in this house for a long
    time.
    
    
    Level 2: Money From Mom
    -----------------------
    
    DIFFICULTY - Easy
    GOALS - Borrow $800 from Mom
            Cook dinner without starting a fire
            Fix the TV
            Get A Job
    
    After being in this massive house, you are woken up to what is more like a
    slum rather than a house by your mum, it was all a dream! This is your first
    proper level on The Sims. You main goal is to borrow $800 from your mum so you
    can move out on your own. The first thing your mum does is break the TV, so
    that is another goal for you to accomplish. You also may have noticed that you
    have another goal other than getting the money from Mom, that is to cook a
    dinner without starting a fire. OK, we'll start with fixing the TV. First, you
    will need to study mechanical (just click on the bookcase, and select the
    appropriate option) until you have 1 bar filled (hold the left directional
    button to see how many bars you have in each skill). Now you are skilled
    enough to fix the TV. It does take a while to fix the TV because you are so
    unskilled but you can do it with only 1 bar. Next, let's cook dinner without
    starting a fire. First, go to the bookcase a select 'Study Cooking'. Again,
    study until you have 1 bar. Now you will definitely be able to cook once
    without starting a fire. Go to the fridge and select 'Serve Lunch'. You sim
    will now automatically take the food out of the fridge and cook it on the
    oven. Now you have completed 2 out of 3 goals. Your next goal is the main one,
    borrowing the money from your mum. The way to do this is to keep talking to
    Mom until your relationship is over 50 (hold the right directional button to
    view relationship statistics. Then compliment her a couple of times, then
    select 'Borrow Money'. She will give you $100 everytime you ask her, so you
    will have to ask 8 times to have enough money. Beware though, Mom will not
    give you any money if she is in a bad mood, so make sure all of her mood bars
    have at least a quarter green (hold the up directional button to view the mood
    bars). After the eighth time, you will get a message saying that you have
    enough money to move out, and then you will get another goal, 'Get A Job'.
    To do this, you must simply go to the paper that is waiting for you outside,
    and select 'Find A Job'. You will be shown a list of possible jobs you can
    take, simply press X when you see the one that most appeals to you, and there
    you have it, you have finished level 2!
    
    
    Level 3: Reality Bites
    ----------------------
    
    DIFFICULTY - Quite Easy
    GOALS - Clean the place up
            Fix the broken stuff
            Get promoted to level 2
            Get promoted to level 3
            Increase house value from $34,561 to $35,711
    
    This is the first level in the game that is going to take you some time.
    After completing level 2, Mom recommends that you go and see a guy called Mr
    Landgrabb to pay what she has lent you in rent to him for a house. You then
    find yourself talking to a strange ginger haired person called Dudley outside
    your new pad. He tells you that he will let you live in the house for free if
    you can clean it up. He said that it was in such a state because he had too
    many parties in there. So the first thing you should do is start clearing
    things up. There is a lot of rubbish around, so this will take you about a day.
    The next goal to work on should be fixing all of the broken stuff. I think that
    the only stuff that is broken is the computer and the coffee machine, but I am
    not sure. To fix the broken stuff you should have at least 1 mechanical point,
    preferably 2. After fixing the broken stuff you need to get promoted. To do
    this, all you have to do is press D-Pad left and looking at that menu, you have
    to work on the points that are coloured in yellow. You can work on points by
    buying something that will increase that certain skill (for example the
    benchpress machine if you need to work on your 'body' skill). Once you are
    promoted to level 2, you must then do the same method again because you need
    to get promoted to level 3. The next goal is the one that is going to cost you
    a bit, you must increase the house value by $1,150. All you have to do is buy
    an item that costs equal or more than that amount. This will nearly wipe out
    your finances. Anyway, after doing that you will have completed the level and
    you will move out into Dudley's house! Well done!
    
    
    Level 4: Party Animals
    ----------------------
    
    DIFFICULTY - Very Hard
    GOALS - Get promoted to level 4
            Get promoted to level 5
            Increase house value from $53,180 to $54,680
            Throw a raging party
            Move a with one of Dudley's friends at a party
    
    For some reason this is one of the hardest levels in the game, and it is right
    in the middle of the game! You are now in a house with Dudley and you can
    control Dudley aswell. Don't bother doing anything with Dudley, just make sure
    you send him to work on time every day. Dudley never does any housework so you
    will either need to do it all yourself or hire a maid. OK, the first thing you
    should work on is getting promoted to level 4 and level 5, again you just need
    to work on the skill level coloured in yellow. Now you have to buy an item that
    is worth $1,500 or above to increase the house value. Now tha hard bit comes
    in, you have to throw a party that is 'raging'. This can be very hard to do.
    To make a party raging you must first of all get loads of people over. Then you
    should get Dudley to cook loads of burgers on the barbecue (about 3 plates),
    then you should buy 2 hot tubs when you have the money. And last of all, you
    should have a stereo in the garden playing out music. You will know if your
    party is raging because one of the guests will tell you so. The hard thing
    about it though is that nearly all of the time, before you party is raging the
    police will come and close it down and all the guests will leave, you just have
    to be lucky. The last goal is a pretty easy one if you do manage to throw a
    raging party. You have to move out with one of the party guests. To do this,
    simply pick someone that you quite like, and keep on talking to them and 
    complimenting them until they are in love with you (relationship is over +80).
    Then all you have to do is select 'Ask to be room mate' and, if you party is 
    raging, they will move out with you and you will have completed the level! Well
    done!
    
    
    Level 5: Hot To Trot
    --------------------
    
    DIFFICULTY - Very Hard
    GOALS - Get promoted to level 6
            Get promoted to level 7
            Increase house value from $46,050 to $48,050
            Throw a raging party
            Try to 'score' with a party guest
    
    This level is pretty much the same as the last one, the only differences are
    that you are getting promoted to levels 6 and 7, you have to buy an item worth
    $2,000 or more and after throwing another raging party you are trying to
    'score' with a party guest. To do this find someone you like of the opposite
    sex and make them fall in love with you (relationship over +80), then press
    'Score With', and if it is a raging party this will work and you will get
    married right there and you will have completed the level and you and your new
    wife will move in together.
    
    
    Level 6: Who Loves Ya Baby
    --------------------------
    
    DIFFICULTY - Hard
    GOALS - Get promoted to level 8
            Get promoted to level 9
            Increase house value from $69,404 to $73,404
            Have 2 babies
            Keep children in school
    
    This level does not involve throwing raging parties so I actually think it is
    slightly easier than the last 2 levels. You are now in a house with your new
    wife. Don't get your wife a job because she is needed later on in this level.
    OK, the first thing you should do is get promoted to level 8 and 9 by again
    fufilling the yellow skill points. Then buy an item worth $4,000 or above to
    increase the house value. Next the hard part comes in. 2 babies will appear and
    you have to look after them and raise them into children. This is where your
    wife comes in handy. The babies will need a lot of attention, they will
    probably cry every 3 hours. So, build another room in your house with a bed,
    a fridge, a toilet and a computer. Put your wife and the babies in that room so
    that your sim isn't being woke up all the time so he isn't late for work and so
    that when your baby does need attention the wife can do it immediately because
    she will have everything that she needs to live in that room. After a while
    your babies will grow into children. All you now have to do is keep them in
    school. To do this, simply keep their grade at B or above by studying a little
    bit every night. Then you have completed the penultimate level of The Sims!
    Well done!
    
    
    Level 7: The Last Simoleon
    -------------------------
    
    DIFFICULTY - Extreme
    GOALS - Get promoted to level 10
            Send children to prep school
            Buy a yacht
            Throw a raging party
    
    Well done, you have made it all the way to the last level of The Sims! OK, the
    first thing you should do in this level is get your final promotion, to level
    10, by again fufilling the skill points in yellow. Then you have to send your
    kids to prep school, this is easy. All you have to do is get them a computer
    each and get them to study for a few hours each night. They will be sent to
    prep school when they have an A+ grade. It will cost $3,000 to send both of
    them but you should have enough money to cover that by now. Then you have to
    buy a yacht, this will cost $20,000, but again you should have enough to cover
    the cost for that. Now you have to throw one last raging party. You need to
    have a lot of friends round to make this one succeed. Once the party is raging,
    you have completed the level, and you get a really cool ending sequence which
    I won't spoil the surprise of.
    You have now completed 'Get A Life' mode on The Sims, well done!!!
    
    
    I hope this guide helped you!

    ******************************************************************************
    PLAY THE SIMS
    ******************************************************************************
    
    This section covers everything to do with the other main mode, 'Play The Sims'.
    This mode is the open-ended gameplay mode, like what you do on the PC version
    of The Sims.
    
    
    Creating A Neighbourhood
    ------------------------
    
    As soon as you click on the Play The Sims button for the first time, you will
    have to create a new neighbourhood. You are then taken to a screen where you
    have to enter the name you want to give to your neighbourhood. After doing this
    you are taken to your neighbourhood. This consists of 8 houses, but 3 of these
    houses are automatically inhabited by computer made families and houses. But
    you can delete this families and houses and create you own.
    
    
    Creating a Family
    -----------------
    
    The first thing you will want to do after creating your neighbourhood is
    creating your first family. To do this press circle (O) from your neighbourhood
    and you will be taken to the list of families who don't currently live anywhere
    in you neighbourhood, there are 2 computer created families on this menu, but
    you can delete them, just highlight them and press circle to delete them. To
    begin creating your family all you have to do is highlight 'Create New Family'
    on this screen and press circle. You are then taken to the screen where you
    must enter the surname of your family. Once you have entered the surname you
    are taken to the main family screen, this is the screen where you can create
    new family members or edit or delete existing family members. Just highlight
    'New' and press X to go to the screen to create a new sim. To find out how to
    create a sim please refer to my 'Creating Your Sim' section earlier in this
    guide. You can create up to 4 family members and when you are finished
    highlight 'Done' and press X. The family that you have just created will now be
    added to the family list.
    
    
    Building a House - Basics
    -------------------------
    
    After creating a family you will want to move them into a house. To do this, on
    the neighbourhood screen press left or right on the d-pad until you have found
    an empty lot. Next press 'Move in Family', you will then be taken to the family
    list where you can select which family you want to put in the house. Once
    doing this, press 'Enter House'. You will now be taken to your house and you
    will be asked if you want the help system to be on or not. If you are not
    familiar with the game, make sure you press X to select 'Yes' to this question.
    After doing this, immediately press start to go to the pause menu. Now select
    'Build' to begin building your house! You are now shown a vertical menu with
    lots of symbols representing different types of items, these symbols are pretty
    easy to figure out so I won't go into detail about them. The first thing you
    should do is put the walls up in the house, so select the 'Wall Tool'. Now to
    build a wall hold down X and drag the wall in the direction that you want to.
    Once you have made you walls you should now choose the wall decoration and the
    type of flooring you want. Next put the doors in. Then put the windows in, but
    note that you must put plenty of windows in because for some reason your sims
    get really depressed if there are note many windows, so put at least 1 window
    for every 4 pieces of wall. Next you should put your plants in where you want
    them, then if you want to (and if you can afford to), put a fireplace and a
    swimming pool in. Now you have finished building the basic parts of your house
    and it is now time to move on to putting the items in. To do this select 'Buy'
    from the pause menu and then select what items you want. For a full description
    of every item in the game look at the 'Items' section of this guide.
    
    
    Living Your Life
    ----------------
    
    Now you have finished building your house you are now ready to begin living
    your life! The more family members you have created, the harder it will be
    because you have got to control so many people. Remember that after creating
    your house you will probably be skint (that's if you didn't cheat), so you will
    definitely need to send the adult(s) in your family out to work to pay the
    bills. Another thing you absolutely must do is have one person have at least 3
    cooking points, so you won't be starting any fires. And also, if you have more
    than 1 family member, make sure you select 'Serve Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner', 
    because that will mean you will make 4 meals on 1 plate. If you have people in
    your family who are quite messy, make sure you hire a maid because they are
    very cheap and definitely worth it. And the last but most important thing to
    remember, never get your sims to try to fix something with no mechanical
    points, as there is a pretty good chance that they will die. And that's all you
    need to know for your sims to live a happy life!
    
    
    *******************************************************************************
    MULTIPLAYER
    *******************************************************************************
    
    One of the very few differences to the PC version of The Sims is that you can
    play with 2 players. There are 2 ways in which you can play with 2 players on
    The Sims. One way is playing a 'Co-operative Game' and another way is playing
    specially made 'Multiplayer Games'. Both of these modes are described in this
    section.
    
    
    Co-operative Games
    ------------------
    
    This type of multiplayer game is used in the 'Play The Sims' mode. To be able
    to do this, you must first have a family of at least 2 people living in a
    house in 'Play The Sims' mode. You should enter this house, and then the person
    with the player 2 controller should press start. This will then put him in the
    game as the other person or one of the other people, so now 2 players can play
    the open ended game co-operatively.
    
    
    Unlockable Mini Games
    ---------------------
    
    These are small 2 player games that pit you and the other player head to head
    to accomplish a certain goal, with the first player to reach this goal being
    declared the winner. Please note that these games are unlockable and for a list
    of all the unlockable things and how to unlock them see the 'Unlockables'
    section of this guide. Below is a list of all the mini games in The Sims:
    
    Museum: In this game you have 10 minutes to get as much money as possible from
    the 'inspectors' that will be in the museum with you. The way to do this is to
    get the inspectors to fall in love with you and then ask them for some money.
    The person with the most money at the end of the 10 minutes is declared the
    winner.
    
    The Frat House: This game is simple enough, there is you, your opponent and
    lots of other people in the house, and the first one to make 3 friends is the
    winner. The only catch is that you and your opponent can spread rumours about
    each other, and if the person believes the rumours, they will stay away from
    the person of whom the rumours are being spread about.
    
    Taylor's Place: Plain and simple, again you are with lots of other people but
    this time you have to fall in love with as many as possible, and you can't
    spread rumours. Another thing about this one is that a computer controlled
    person can only be in love with one person, either you or your opponent.
    
    Club Abih: Exactly the same as Taylor's Place.
    
    The Maid's House: You and your opponent each have one half of a room, which is
    very messy, so you have to clean it. The person who's half is cleaner by the
    time the maid comes back is the winner. The catch is that neighbours come in
    and mess up the house while you are cleaning. Another thing is that the maid's
    child is in the house aswell and if you keep the child happy the maid will
    give you some more 'winning hearts'.
    
    The Handyman's House: Exactly the same as The Maid's House but with a handyman
    instead of a maid.
    
    The Park: The first person to fill themselves up with food is the winner. You
    can get food by grilling your own, begging other people for food or stealing
    food from other people. The only catch is that people come and steal your food
    from time to time so it is quite hard to fill yourself up.
    
    Party Motel: Exactly the same as The Frat House except that you have to fall
    in love with 3 people rather than just becoming friends with 3 people.

    Using Items Effectively
    -----------------------
    
    This section is my guide on how to use items the best so you sims will like
    their house the most.
    
    
    Windows
    ^^^^^^^
    
    For some reason, your sims become very depressed if there aren't a lot of
    windows in their house, so always make sure that you put plenty of windows in
    your house. I would say that you should put one window for every 5 squares of
    wall space around the outside of your house.
    
    
    Beds
    ^^^^
    
    Never put a double bed in straight away for 2 sims and expect them to sleep
    together in it. If they aren't friends (relationship is under +50) then they
    will not sleep in the same bed. So start off with 2 single beds if you have 2
    sims in a house.
    
    
    Paintings and Artistry
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    
    Don't overcrowd your house with artistry. You only have to put it in where it
    is required. It is required if the sims 'room' mood rating is mostly red when
    they are in a certain room. If it is over half in a room, no artistry is needed
    in there.
    
    
    Items Blocking Other Items
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    
    Never put an item in the way of a door or another item, this will only
    frustrate your sims when they want to use the blocked item or room. Make sure
    everything is spaced out enough in your house.
    
    
    For more tips on how to build a good house, see the 'Recommendations for
    Building a House' section later on in this guide.
    
    
    This concludes the items section of this guide, I hope it wasn't an information
    overload and that you got some use out of it (because it took me days to
    write!).
    
    
    *******************************************************************************
    CHEATING
    *******************************************************************************
    
    The Sims does have various ways to cheat on it. And, if you are a cheating kind
    of person or if you just want to mess about with the game, this section is
    devoted entirely to the cheats in The Sims.
    
    
    Cheat Codes
    -----------
    
    This section list all the cheat codes that can be entered while in the game,
    not using a special cheat program like Gameshark.
    
    The following codes can be entered at the main menu by holding down L1+L2+R1+R2
    and then entering one of the following codes:
    
    MIDAS - Unlocks all of the unlockable items and clothing.
    
    FREEALL - Everything you buy to put in a house will cost nothing.
    
    SIMS - 'Play the Sims' mode is unlocked without having to do the 'Dream House'
           level of 'Get A Life'.
    
    PARTY M - The 'Party Motel' multiplayer mini game is unlocked.
    
    FISH EYES - When in game press circle (O) 3 times and you can view your sim in
                first person view.
    
    
    Action Replay/Gameshark Codes
    -----------------------------
    
    Please note that Action Replay and Gameshark codes are the same and I think
    that some of these codes will not work of Action Replay, but I am not sure.

    Recommendations For Building a House
    ------------------------------------
    
    This section is my guide to the best way to build a house. It will show you
    what rooms you should build corresponding to how many members of your family
    you are going to have.
    
    
    1 Person
    ^^^^^^^^
    
    One Living Room
    One Kitchen or Kitchen/Diner
    One Bathroom
    One Bedroom
    One Study (for building up skill levels)
    
    
    2 People
    ^^^^^^^^
    
    One Living Room
    One Kitchen or Kitchen/Diner
    One or two Bathrooms
    One or two Bedrooms
    One Study
    
    
    3 People
    ^^^^^^^^
    
    One large Living Room
    One large Kitchen/Diner
    Two Bathrooms (3 if you have the money)
    Two or three Bedrooms
    One Study
    
    
    4 People
    ^^^^^^^^
    
    Two Living Rooms
    One large Kitchen/Diner
    Two, three or even four Bathrooms
    Two or three Bedrooms
    One large Study
    
    
    If you are just starting out with a family I would recommend only starting with
    1 or 2 people, because you can't spend that much at the very beginning.
    
    
    Funny Things To Do
    ------------------
    
    This section is all about the funny (and maybe cruel) stuff you can with your
    sims. Have fun!
    
    
    1. Put your sim in a small room with a fireplace and lots of rugs. Once they
    are in, take the door away so they a locked in. Then get them to light a fire.
    The rugs should now catch on fire one by one until the whole room is alight,
    your sim will then burn to death. A cruel, but comical way to die!
    
    
    2. Get your sim to try to change a lightbulb with no mechanical skill points.
    They will electrocute themselves. That really is a funny way to die, changing a
    lightbulb!
    
    
    3. Get a child sim and make them get in a swimming pool. Then put tables all
    the way around the edge of the pool so they can't get out. After about 4 days
    of eternal swimming let them get out of the pool. If it is a child that you put
    in, they will have a hyperactive fit and then collapse and die!
    
    
    4. Put a sim in a small room with a stereo in it and then take the door away so
    he can't get out. Get the sim to turn on the stereo and set it to 'Country'.
    Then go to the 'Buy' menu on the pause menu and turn the stereo round so it is
    facing the wall. Now your sim will not be able to turn the stereo off and they
    will be doomed to hearing country music for the rest of their life! Another
    funny thing with this is that when they fall asleep on the floor they are woken
    up immediately by the stereo.
    
    
    There are several other cruel and funny things that you can get your sim to do,
    I am sure that you will figure out a lot of them. 
    If anyone has any more things for this section, please email me and I will put
    them in with a credit to you.
