News: Get Together Trailer, Repairman, and Spooky Freebies

Get Together Trailer

Squeeeeeeeee!!! I’m really excited for this! It has so many of my old favourites: like the cosy traditional bar with the dartboard and foosball table! And I’d buy this expansion JUST for the group-system because I know I’d use it all the time.


Yay, the repairman (or woman or gender neutral person) is back!!! No longer will sims have to risk electrocution while fixing that questionable looking fridge, or shell out on a new appliance EVERY… TIME… IT… BREAKS because you can just ring up a guy/girl/other sim to come and fix it for you! For a price, obviously, it’s not a sim charity!

They also fixed some bugs with the maid. Not that I noticed, since my sims currently tidy up themselves or live in unimaginable squalor, but when they DO get a maid I’m sure they’ll be happy to find them more productive. ^__^

Let’s hope they also add a hireable gardener and let our sims actually perform a maid/gardener/repairman service too someday. To get the repairman just install the latest patch and Pancake Bob’s your uncle! (Bob’s your uncle is a British saying… don’t ask me why)

Here is Iron Seagull testing the repair-sim out!

Spooky Trick or Treat Freebies!

The Sims team recently added trick or treat interactions to the game for Halloween, we had the chance of ‘winning’ 3 out of 6 spooky themed items by spamming these interactions in game. #TeamTreat won all 3 rounds, to the disappointment of #TeamTrick fans. However… some of us liked ALL the items and made our own #TeamAllTheThings campaign! Now… I don’t know if it was a direct result but as well as the 3 ‘treat’ items, the gurus also hid the 3 trick items in the game files too. This allowed modders to ‘unlock’ them, yay! Thanks sneaky gurus! You tricked and treated us!

The patch includes:
* A door with a cute Narnia-like lion door knocker.
* A ‘gummy’ fish and fish bowl.
* A Georgian style chest which has an inventory to store some collectables!

The other 3 hidden items are:
* A door with a creepy Labyrinth inspired grotesque door knocker.
* A ‘skelly’ fish and fish bowl.
* A medieval style chest which has an inventory to store some collectables!

The treat items will be in your game when you patch and you can grab the other three from Tatiana at The Sims Community!

Sadly, the gurus have removed the interactions from the game. But maybe, like me, you don’t play in real-time? Maybe you might have sim-Halloween in June? If, like me, you want to choose when your sims go trick or treating, you’ll be happy to know the wonderful Zerbu has re-added them to the game! YAY!!! Grab the mod HERE! Thanks Zerbu!!!

And finally, a quick thank-you to Sim Guru Daniel who listened to our grumbling about not having anywhere to store all our inventory junk. Thanks for the inventory chests Daniel!

Oh, and thank you to the Sims team if they did listen to the pleas of #TeamAllTheThings and decided to mercifully sneak those other items into our game after all.
