[1.1] Game Overview/Introduction
Welcome to my walkthrough of the PC version of Maxis and Electronics 
Art’s MySims. Because this game can be played and/or completed in 
various different ways, this guide will follow what I have done in 
the past. However, it’s entirely up to you how you want to complete 
the game, as this is really just a reference! Enjoy!

MySims is a kid-friendly version of the Sims; however, it is very 
different compared to its mature counterpart. Your Sims are not 
relying on you for their necessities and you form no true 
relationships with any other Sims. The object is to complete tasks 
for other Sims and make them happy. 

There are two versions of My Sims, the DS version and the Wii/PC 
version. Though both games are very similar, their gameplay mechanics 
are much different and the game’s story, though identical, is not 
100% the same. This guide is specifically for the PC/Wii version.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[2] My Sims Brief Information
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.1] Plot
MySims’ story involves your Sim arriving at a town that used to 
thrive with other Sims due to a Sim that was the Master of Essences. 
However, the Master of Essences vanished one day, taking his magic 
phenomena with him. Soon, Sims began to leave the town, leaving it 
with only a few Sims remaining. Mayor Rosalyn believes you are the 
new Master of Essences and that you have the power to restore the 
town to its former glory! There are a total of 5 Star Levels which 
are completed by moving Sims in and giving them the happiest 
experience in your town.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.2] Your Sim
This is your own personalized Sim. At the start of the game, you are 
able to pick your Sim’s gender, change skin color and the shape of 
the eyes. You are also able to pick your hair color and style, as 
well as default clothing. This Sim can reflect you or look any way 
you’d like it to.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.3] Your House
This is your Sim’s residence in the game. You’re able to build your 
own house and design the exterior. You can also design the interior 
and add furniture to add a more colorful and personal touch to your 
Sim’s home. Despite the ability to make a two-story house, your house 
is one-story regardless. It’s possible that if you have enough items 
to peak Sim’s interests, they’ll visit your house more often. It’s 
even possible for a Sim Party to happen if enough Sims come over!

Don’t make the mistake I’ve made so many times, and neglect to do 
much with your house. It’s a really great and fun feature, especially 
when you unlock new things to put inside and decorate to your liking!

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.4] Your Workshop
This is where the magic happens! Your workshop is usually right 
beside your house and is where you can build items according to 
different blueprints you receive throughout the game. You’re able to 
design the exterior of the workshop.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.5] Your Garden
The garden is a special place for your Sim that is accessed a bit 
further into the game. The garden has many Essences for grabs in the 
trees and also has plenty of lots for you to build houses for extra 
storage. You cannot move other Sims onto these lots however. By 
taking the train in the town, you can reach the your garden, an 
online garden where you can meet other people’s Sims, as well as a 
friend’s garden. There’s even a second workshop for you to build 
things in!

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[2.6] Gameplay
This version of MySims is identical to the Wii version and can be 
used for that version as well, just apply the Wii’s controls to the 
Wii version.

Using the keyboard, you can maneuver your Sim.

The up key moves your Sim north, the down key moves your Sim south, 
the left key moves your Sim west, and the right key moves your Sim 
east. You can also use the W, A, S, and D keys or press and hold the 
right-click on the mouse and drag in the desired direction.

You can zoom in and zoom out by using the R key (zoom in) and the F 
key (zoom out). You can also use the scroll wheel on the mouse.

The C key resets the camera. Press the Enter key to interact with 
Sims or other objects. A diamond appears above your Sim’s head when 
you’re able to interact with something.

The Z key allows you to cycle through interactions when the 
interaction menu has appeared. Pressing the C key centers the camera 
when on the interaction menu.

To shake a tree, click and hold with the mouse and move the cursor 
back and forth rapidly.

To pick up an Essence, have your Sim walk over it or click on it with 
the mouse.

The spacebar pauses the game and brings you to the menu. This menu 
allows you to save your game, exit the game, go back to the main 
menu, or adjust options.

The V key opens up the map screen. It can also be accessed by the map 
button in the lower right corner of the screen. You can scroll around 
the map using the arrow keys and place a map marker by clicking on an 
area on the map.

To access your item menu, press the G key or click the book icon in 
the upper right corner.

To access the Task Book, press the T key or click the Task Book icon.

To access the backpack, press the B key or click the backpack icon.

You can exit the pause menu by pressing the Esc key. 

To take a photo and save it to your computer press the F1 key.

The game mainly follows your Sim completing tasks for other Sims. For 
finishing these tasks, your Sim will earn a cash reward consisting of 
the Sim currency referred to as Simoleons (§), as well as a new 
blueprint for an item. The further you progress, the more Sims arrive 
in your town.

Each Sim falls under one of the six categories, Studious (A green 
smiley with a hat and glasses), Cute (A pink bear symbol), Spooky (A 
purple ghost symbol), Geeky (A blue robot symbol), Fun (A yellow 
smiley with a party hat and horn) and Tasty (An orange turkey leg 
symbol). These categories make a huge difference when taking in 
consideration what Essences you use for items they want. Each Sim has 
a particular interest preference over another, be sure to pay 
attention to this.

While Sims are each separated into six categories, they are also 
separated into two types. There are Townie Sims that just act as 
residents, as well as Commercial Sims that bring a business to your 
town. All Commercial Sims offer a different business to your town, 
which is useful for attracting other Sims.

The meter in the top left is your Star Level meter. This increases 
each time you help out and move Sims into your town. When the meter 
fills all the way, another Star is added to the rating and your town 
will advance to the next level.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[3] Sims
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[3.1] Interests
All the Sims in MySims have main interests, secondary interests, and 
dislikes. These interests are separated into 6 categories;

Cute
Tasty
Fun
Spooky
Geeky
Studious

Each Sim has a primary interest, and a secondary interest, but also 
an interest they particularly dislike. There are many different 
combinations of primary and secondary interests!


---------------------------------------------------------------------
[3.2] Interest Percentages
Your town’s interest comes out to a percentage, depending on what 
kinds of Sims live there and what their main interests are.
Getting 100% for a certain type of interest is important if you’re 
interested in seeing the Uber Sims. These Sims gives out rare and 
valuable blueprints when you befriend them! There are 6 Uber Sims;

Mel (Spooky)
Star (Geeky)
Hopper (Cute)
Ikara (Tasty)
Bob (Studious)
Daryl (Fun)

The majority of the town’s interest percentage comes from the Sims 
that move in and the percentage of how well their house suits that 
particular interest. To insure that a house gets 100% of a type of 
interest, you must use only that type of item when building the 
house. For example, a Studious interest home would do best with a LOT 
of columns, statues, and other architectural features. 
While the exterior of the home makes up for a lot of that percentage, 
the interior is a factor as well. When building furniture for Townie 
Sims, be sure that the furniture pertains to their main interest, if 
not their secondary interest. Painting the furniture completely with 
Essences related to their interests will provide a huge boost in the 
percent. However, you can only add 30 pieces of furniture to their 
home and only 10 decoratives.

Your Sim’s house also acts as a factor of interest. The Essences, 
decorative, and other exterior designs will add to the town’s 
percentage. The same goes for your Sim’s workshop, but the percentage 
is smaller than your Sim’s house would be.

*Note: The percentages don’t add up to a whole. All the interests can 
be at max simultaneously.

[5] Essences
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Throughout the game, your Sim can collect objects known as Essences. 
These Essences were once wielded by a man who vanished under 
mysterious circumstances. Essences are applied to items made using 
blueprints, which help give the item the vibe of whatever kind of Sim 
type that Essence falls under.

Essences can be found by shaking trees, socializing with other Sims, 
fishing, prospecting, chopping down trees, etc. 
Below, I’ll list the types of Essences, what category they fall 
under, what level is needed to get them, and where they can be found.

[6] Furniture
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Blueprints are designs that are used to make furniture. When working 
on a blueprint, a ghost outline shows you where to set up the pieces 
to make the item, however, you can make it any way you’d like to. 
Blueprints can be obtained from other Sims. Many of these blueprints 
come from completing a task for them or becoming their best friend.
Below, I will list the types of blueprints;

[6.2] Decoratives
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Decoratives are neat little objects you can use to decorate your 
home. You often receive them after completing all the tasks for a 
Commercial Sim, but you can also receive them after becoming best 
friends with a Sim. Only 10 decoratives can be in your Sim’s house at 
once, as they clutter up the space in your Sim’s home.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[7] Planting
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[7.1] Planting
Planting is a basic activity in the game. Trees are found throughout 
the game, mainly growing Essences. With these Essences, you’re able 
to plant a tree anywhere where there’s a dry-looking patch of land. A 
tree can also be dug up and replaced with something else. If there’s 
a certain Essence that you need more of, plant a tree of it!

To plant, an option for it should appear when you approach a dry 
patch of land. Select it and click on a plant type Essence to plant a 
tree that blooms those Essences. Sometimes, this is a better 
alternative and makes that particular Essence easy to come by.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[8] Building
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.1] Buildings
In this game, you’re required to do quite a lot of building, mainly 
for Sims that need housing. By asking a Sim to move in at the hotel, 
you gain access to building by approaching any empty lot. In the 
building mode, you are given a checkered plot of land where you can 
place building bases and other accessories to the lot. Some lots are 
smaller than others, but even so, the lots aren’t very big. Anyways, 
the small yellow area lets you know where the front of the building 
is. By cycling through with the arrows, you can view your options as 
far as building bases, windows, doors, roofs, yard accessories, 
building accessories, etc. As you progress and meet new Sims, your 
options expand. For commercial Sims, it’s required that their 
building have a sign to let other Sims know what the building is. As 
for Townie Sims, their houses need a sign to let other Sims know what 
type of Sim they are. The house can only be two stories high, and 
some objects will not be able to overlap. You can change the color of 
the base and the roof using the paint mode. By clicking with the left 
and right clicks, you will be able to cycle through a variety of 
colors and textures. Also, be sure to make sure that a Sim’s house 
has items that represent their interests. A Sim that’s Spooky isn’t 
going to care much for dolls or flowerbeds on their home, or a Sim 
that’s Tasty isn’t going to care much for columns and architecture.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[8.2] Objects
Another essential to the game is building objects for other Sims. As 
you advance in the game, Sims will ask favors of you, which is key to 
reaching the next level. These Sims will request a piece of 
furniture, in which they give you a blueprint for and expect it to be 
made with a certain amount of a particular Essence. How do you build 
you may ask? Well, your Sim owns a workshop that they can create 
these objects in. Your workshop works similar to building houses, but 
it’s a bit different. Depending on the blueprint, a ghost of the 
design for the furniture will be set on a circular base. By cycling 
through with the arrows, you can see the different block shapes that 
are needed to build. The ones highlighted in green are the basic 
blocks necessary to build the desired object. If the snap mode is 
enabled, picking up these blocks and dragging them to the ghost will 
snap the block in its correct spot. However, some of the blocks 
cannot overlap each other or disturb the design. The paint mode 
allows you to cycle through a variety of colors and textures, but the 
Essence paint allows you to use a texture based on a particular 
Essence. This is the most basic way to implement Essences into the 
design. Another way is to add the physical Essence itself and place 
it on the design. All objects made in the workshop are saved in the 
inventory.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[9] Prospecting
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[9.1] Prospecting
Prospecting involves using a detector device to find things hidden 
underground. This is key to finding some Essences! If you walk near 
an area where there are crystals in a patch on the ground, you’ll 
have the option to prospect. The device makes a sound at a certain 
frequency when it detects something. No frequency means nothing is 
nearby. A blue, slow frequency detects something. A yellow, medium 
frequency detects something nearby. An orange, quick frequency 
detects something extremely close. And a red, fast frequency detects 
something right underneath you. After it flashes red, you’ll have the 
option to dig up whatever is underground. And that’s how you 
prospect!

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[10] Fishing
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[10.1] Fishing
Fishing is another way to get Essences, mainly marine types. By 
approaching any body of water, you have the option to fish. When a 
crop of bubbles appear at the water’s surface that means an Essence 
is there. Use the left click on the mouse to cast your line and pull 
the mouse back to yank in your catch.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[11] Essentials
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[11.1] Task Book
The task book is where all the tasks you receive from various Sims 
are kept as a checklist for you to use. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[11.2] List of Tasks
These are tasks that are given by commercial Sims in the town. 
Frequently talk to these Sims to obtain these tasks;

[11.3] Relationship Book
The Relationship Book keeps track of the relationships you hold with 
various Sims in your town. This book provides a bit of information 
about the Sims. The different smiley faces tell how you and that Sim 
are familiar with each other. The yellow neutral face means you’re an 
acquaintance and are neutral with that Sim. The green happy face 
means you’re a friend of that Sim and generally have a good 
relationship. The green grinning happy face means that you and the 
Sim are best friends. By being nice to these Sims, their relationship 
with your Sim improves. A Sim can never be your enemy nor can they be 
higher than a best friend.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[11.4] Backpack
The Backpack acts as your inventory. Inside is where your Essences 
are kept, as well as any items you’ve created in your workshop. 

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[11.5] Blueprint Book
The Blueprint Book is where all your obtained blueprints are kept.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[11.6] Essence Book
The Essence Book records all types of Essences you’ve discovered in 
the Town. They are separated by category.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

[12.1] Best Friend Rewards
These are blueprint rewards that are given after becoming best

[13] Star Level 0: Welcome to Your Town!
-------------------------------------------------------------------
[13.1] Rosalyn’s Welcome
When you start the game, you’ll be brought to the introduction story. 
Rosalyn will take a moment to tell you about the history of the town 
you’re moving to. She starts by saying the town used to be a unique 
and lively town with many essentials to suit the interests of the 
different Sims that lived there. Rosalyn explains that this was 
because of a mysterious Sim with the power to use Essences to build 
great things. One day, the Sim vanished, taking all its’ greatness 
with them. The town underwent a change and lost all of its charm. 
Sims began to move away, despite Rosalyn’s pleas to stay. Luckily, 
she’s heard that a new Sim is arriving that supposedly has the power 
of the Essences. And that Sim is yours!

From here, you’re brought to the Sim creator. Here you can pick what 
your Sim looks like, what your Sim’s voice is like, your Sim’s 
clothing and accessories, and of course, a name. To change hair, 
clothing, the mouth, and eyes, click on those parts of the Sim to 
cycle through the different options. Your Sim’s complexion and hair 
color can be changed by the two buttons on the top left panel. You 
can also randomize your Sim’s qualities by pressing the bottom button 
on the left panel. Below that is the voice changer. Here you can pick 
which voice type you’d like, as well as how high or low the pitch of 
that voice is. On the tab in the top right, you can choose glasses 
and add facial marks to your Sim. A name can be given to the Sim by 
clicking the button at the bottom left. The Sim can reflect you or 
anything you’d like! When you’re ready, click the button in the 
bottom right to continue with the game. 

You’ve arrived at your town! Before you can jump in and get to 
explore, you have to meet Mayor Rosalyn at the Town Hall. Your Sim 
will walk there automatically. Once inside, find Mayor Rosalyn and 
click on her. The option to talk will appear. Go ahead and do so. 
Rosalyn will give you a warm welcome to your town and ask if you’ve 
signed your resident registration form yet. You’ll need it filed to 
be recorded as a citizen. Don’t worry, all you have to do is click on 
Rosalyn again and select the “Give Form” option. Great! With the 
documents given to Rosalyn, she can now take you to your new home. 
Rosalyn will leave and wait outside so she can lead the way. Exit the 
Town Hall and she’ll say that the town’s a bit run down and there 
aren’t many Sims living here, but she knows you have the power to 
restore the town’s charm and luster. As she leads the way, you’ll see 
the bellhop who works at (and manages) the local hotel. You’ll meet 
him later. As Rosalyn brings you to your house, unfortunately, you’ll 
both find that there’s no house there. That means you’re going to 
have to build your own house!

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[13.2] All Settled In
You’re brought to the building creator. Your workspace is the 
checkered platform. The building can go anywhere on that space as 
long as it isn’t too large. Your building options are set out in 
front of the platform. The arrows show you even more options! You can 
choose from different roofs to bases to accessories to windows to 
lighting. What you choose says a lot about your Sim’s personality and 
adds to a percentage of what the town’s main interests tend to be. 
The two buttons on the top left panel allow you to change colors of 
parts of your house and select the different options available. The 
gray hexagon shows you a percentage of what interests are conveyed by 
your house depending on what items you choose. If you want to remove 
an item from your house, drag it to the trash can button that 
appears. If you want to rotate an item, select it and rotate it using 
the arrow keys. When you’re done designing, click the door button in 
the top right corner. After building, Rosalyn will explain how rare 
your ability to use Essences is and wants to try out your powers in 
action. She’ll lead you to the garden, give you 2 Red Apple Essences, 
and tell you to shake the trees to get the apples. You’ll have 
obtained some Red Apple Essences! After getting 10, return to Town 
Hall and talk to Rosalyn. She’ll be happy to see you completed the 
task and then explains that you can use your workshop to build 
things. Head back outside and she’ll take you to your workshop. Just 
like your house was, it’s non-existent right now. Build up your 
workshop the same way you did with your house! Afterward, Rosalyn 
will ask you to build a chair. In your workshop, follow the ghost 
guidelines to make a chair using the blocks in front of you. Use the 
arrow keys to rotate the needed blocks to the correct positions. The 
buttons at the top allow you to turn the ghost on and off, paint the 
furniture, enable or disable snap mode, and enable or disable slide 
under mode.

After completing the chair, it’s time to put the chair in your house!
Rosalyn will take you inside your home. There isn’t much, but there’s 
a living room, a kitchen, a bedroom, and a bathroom. As far as 
furniture, there’s a wooden table and chair, a couple of countertops, 
and some bedroom furniture. You’ll be able to get blueprints for some 
really cool stuff as you progress in the game. Press the “Decorate My 
House” button in the lower right corner. In this mode, you’ll be able 
to decorate your home by adding new flooring or wall textures, as 
well as move furniture, and place furniture you’ve created into your 
home. Click on the backpack button to access the furniture you’ve 
made. Drag the chair into your home and click to place it anywhere 
you’d like. The chest button is where decorative are kept. The top 
two buttons allow you to move furniture and change textures on the 
walls and floors. After placing the chair, click the door button to 
exit the decorate mode. Rosalyn will have taught you the basics and 
rewards you with a few blueprints to get you started. She mentions 
having a job for you. Congratulations, you’ve completed the tutorial! 

*Note: Now would be a good time to save your game to insure that you 
don’t have to go through that again.
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[13.3] Check Out the Town
Go ahead and visit Rosalyn at the Town Hall and talk to her. She’ll 
explain that she needs a podium so that she can deliver her important 
speeches to the town. She’ll give you the blueprint and requests that 
you add 4 Red Apple Essences to the podium’s design. With that, 
return to your workshop. At your workshop, you’re given two options 
“Work on a Task”, which allows you to create something for another 
Sim, and “Create an Item”, which allows you to create something for 
your home. Select the first option and click on Mayor Rosalyn’s 
picture. Click the podium on the checklist to get started. Build a 
podium for Mayor Rosalyn, but you must also incorporate 4 Red Apple 
Essences into the design. You can either place the Essences 
physically on the item or apply to the item through a texture. 
Personally, the textures look better for some things, but it’s up to 
you. Click on the paintbrush and you’ll be brought to the textures 
and paint mode. The rainbow bucket has your basic colors, but the 
bucket with the shapes is the Essence textures. Select the big 
inventory button and you’ll see the Essences you do have. You should 
have at least 10 Red Apples from earlier. After applying the 
Essences, select the door and you’ll have completed your task. Bring 
the podium to Rosalyn at the Town Hall. Approach her and select the 
“Give Stuff” option. You’re brought to similar mode as when you 
decorate your home. You’re able to decorate the Town Hall the same 
way, but it should probably reflect that particular Sim’s interests. 
Take the podium from your inventory and place it somewhere in the 
Town Hall. Rosalyn will thank you and give you a blueprint for the 
chairs in the meeting room. She will also give you a potted plant, a 
decorative, for your home. Exit the Decorating mode and Rosalyn will 
suggest you check on Poppy and see if she needs help in her flower 
shop. Exit the Town Hall and walk towards the right towards the 
pinkish building with lots of flowers. Go inside and talk to Poppy, 
the girl with the pigtails. Poppy will explain that she needs a 
flower stand because she’s running out of room for her flowers. 
She’ll give you the flower stand blueprint and request that 2 Happy 
Essences be added to the design. Head to your workshop and create the 
flower stand, and be sure to incorporate 2 Happy Essences into it. 
Once it’s completed, return to Poppy’s shop and give it to her. After 
placing the flower stand, Poppy will reward you with a table 
blueprint. By talking to Poppy again, you’ll find that Poppy wants a 
bed with flowers. She’ll give you a bed blueprint and ask that you 
use at least 2 Yellow Blossoms. After giving her the bed, she’ll 
reward you with a flower stand blueprint. Congratulations, your town 
has reached Star Level 1! You’re now able to access new areas that 
were boarded up before, as well as obtaining new blocks and 
blueprints for your workshop!
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[14] Star Level 1: Return of the Sims!
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[14.1] Task Master
At this point, more Sims are ready to move into town! The hotel is 
where all the Sims without residences gather. It’s located right 
across from the Town Hall. Every morning, new Sims arrive at the 
hotel. You can move in any of the Sims you’d like by talking to them 
and allowing them to move in. The Sims that have arrived include Chef 
Gino, DJ Candy Supergroove, and Vincent Skullfinder. Talk to any of 
those Sims and they’ll offer to bring their commercial business to 
your town. You can move them in on the empty lots throughout the 
town. Just select “Move In” and click on the Sim you want in that 
spot. I would highly recommend moving all 3 Sims in, as they provide 
business opportunities that will attract more Townie Sims to your 
town.

After moving in those Sims, you have a choice of completing some of 
their tasks now, or waiting until later when you have a better 
opportunity to find the Essences they want in their blueprints. 
However, you do have the ability to remove the boards blocking off 
the cave next to the stream. Walk towards where the desert gate is 
and head to the right. The option to remove the boarding appears and 
you have access to that cave. The cave is dark, but also pretty cool, 
making it an excellent spot for spooky or geeky Sims. Sims don’t have 
to like a particular spot you put them, but sometimes it’s easier to 
have them mingle with similar crowds.

For this guide, I’m going to start by completing tasks for Chef Gino, 
as he requests a stove, a table, and chair from you. Those are fairly 
easy to build, only requiring Red Apples, Green Apples, and Stones. 
After helping out Gino with his business, he’ll give you a reward of 
a Pizza Decorative for your home. The next person to help would be 
Vincent. Visit him at his museum and talk to him. Vincent requests 
two sculptures for his museum, and later a desk and a chair for his 
office. His last request, a sarcophagus, has Essences that are a bit 
difficult to come by at this point in time. The best thing to do next 
would be to visit DJ Candy and also Poppy and complete tasks for 
them. Candy first asks for a stereo, while Poppy would like another 
flower stand. Complete both of those tasks. Poppy will reward you 
with a fern decorative for your house. After helping out so many of 
the Sims, your town has now reached Star Level 2! You’ve been 
rewarded with a saw to remove the logs blocking the forest as well as 
obtaining some more blueprints!

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[15] Star Level 2: Check in at the Hotel!
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[15.1] Sims Galore
Now would be a good time to check out the hotel to see if any Sims 
have arrived. The majority that arrive in this level are Townie Sims. 
The Sims that have arrived so far are Clara, Nicole, and Ray. Buddy 
will inform you that Sims are starting to come back and stay at the 
hotel while waiting to be moved in. You’ll also be informed that the 
train is now in service and traverses from the town to the gardens. 
Sweet! Talk to any of those three Sims you want and move them in. By 
the next day, Roger, Roxie, and Elmira will have arrived. And with 
the forest region now open, you have even more empty lots. Time to 
complete more tasks! Go ahead and speak with Candy (who needs a couch 
and a table), Roxie (who needs an ice cream freezer), and Elmira (who 
needs a bookshelf). Afterward, all Candy needs is a turntable, while 
Roxie needs a refrigerator and a sink to keep the ice cream from 
melting and so she can wash her hands. Elmira will need a desk and a 
chair. Now would also be a good time to finish Vincent’s sarcophagus 
if you haven’t already! And if you check out the hotel, Travis and 
Rhonda should have arrived as well. By moving one of them in, the 
town earns another star. Congratulations on reaching Star Level 3! 
You now have a pickaxe to break apart boulders blocking entrances and 
also gained more blueprints! 

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[16] Star Level 3: A Bustling Town
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[16.1] Tasks, Tasks, and More Tasks
After giving Roxie a refrigerator and a sink, she’ll need a table and 
a chair. It’d also be a good idea to break the boulders blocking the 
desert entry, since there will be even more Sims waiting at the 
hotel. Bean, Sandra, Matt, Gordon, or Matt should be there. It’d be 
wise to move them in. The Sims that you’ve probably already completed 
tasks for are Vincent, Candy, and Gino. Complete the chair and desk 
for Elmira, and she’ll ask for a small television so she can watch 
her soap operas, as well as a couch. And if you check in at the 
hotel, you’ll find that Vic Vector and Jenny have also arrived. It 
would be good to move them in. Also, be sure to talk to Ms. Nicole, 
as she’ll have a task in which she needs a bed. After finishing a 
couple of Ms. Nicole’s tasks, make sure you finish up Elmira’s and 
Roxie’s task, as these give you a huge boost on the Star Meter! 
Congratulations, you’ve reached Star Level 4! Rosalyn gives you the 
blowtorch, which means metal doors will be at your mercy! All the 
regions are available to you now, and you’ve also gained some new 
blueprints!

---------------------------------------------------------------------
[17] Star Level 4: Success is Near!
---------------------------------------------------------------------
[17.1] A Cycle of Sims
At this point in the game, you’ll find that there are little free 
lots left. You won’t be able to fit every single Sim into the town at 
one time, so you may have to cycle. The easiest way to do so, is to 
maybe cycle Townie Sims in and out, upon achieving the best friend 
status with them. Commercial Sims are needed to advance to the final 
Star Level, so be sure to include them into the cycle as well! Go 
ahead and finish up Ms. Nicole’s tasks to increase the Star Meter a 
bit. In order to increase the meter more, you’ll have to move in more 
Commercial Sims if you haven’t. After moving in some more Commercial 
Sims, complete their tasks. The Star Meter fills much faster when you 
complete tasks for Commercial Sims over trying to make Townie Sims 
happy. Besides, you can move Townie Sims back in afterward. 
Congratulations, you have reached Star Level 5! Although there aren’t 
any new areas or tools available for you, you have obtained another 
set of blueprints and reached the town to its full potential!
---------------------------------------------------------------------
-
[18] Star Level 5: A Town is Reborn!
---------------------------------------------------------------------
-
[18.1] The Town Hero
Upon achieving Star Level 5, you’ll find the Star Meter will remain 
full, which means you’ve completed the game as far as the main story. 
In your honor, the citizens of the town throw you a big party to 
celebrate the town’s success thanks to you. Rosalyn will congratulate 
you and say that even more Sims will want to move in now. The credits 
will begin to roll, but afterward, you have an opportunity to build 
the town monument. You can use any Essences you want to build the 
monument and you can place it anywhere you’d like in your town, as a 
reward for your hard work!

---------------------------------------------------------------------

[19] Final Word
---------------------------------------------------------------------
-
[19.1] Final Word
MySims is a game that you can really just play any way you’d like. 
The purpose of this guide was to show you one of the many ways you 
CAN play, and to possibly help those that find themselves in a rough 
spot in the game. I hope I made the guide as thorough as possible! I 
really had a lot of fun with this walkthrough and this game, and I 
can’t wait to start my next guide! (: Adieu, my readers!

Also, have a subject for your e-mail so I know what it’s about. Don’t 
send me spam, something unrelated to the guide, technical 
difficulties regarding the game and/or console, or something already 
answered in the guide.

I speak English primarily, so I won’t be able to understand an e-mail 
written in Spanish, Italian, French (I only know the basics of the 
language), German, or any other language. The e-mail should be 
straight-forward and to the point. I don’t want an e-mail that is 
off-topic. I also don’t want the e-mail to be written in horrible 
English. Nobody is going to understand someone that types like this, 
“so how you paly gaem. Am stuk. Hallp meh.” You don’t have to be 
formal with the e-mail, but simple, casual writing will do.

If you send me an e-mail with any information to add to the guide, 
you will be credited in the Credits section in the guide.
