As you already know, thanks to EA Italy's marketing office, with the collaboration of Eden (The Sims community manager), we were able to attend an exclusive preview of The Sims 3 Ambitions in their offices in Milan. Special guests of the event were Producer Grant Rodiek and the International Marketing Assistant.

After explaining the new careers and abilities, the second part of our article is about new traits and lifetime rewards, the laundry system, Sim Bots, Twinbrook (the new neighborhood), updates to Sunset Valley and Riverview, news from the Buy/Build modes and CAS, the new neighborhood editing tools and the new graphic interface/notify system.

Don't be scared by the lenght of our article! You'll find a lot of interesting information and all you need to know about The Sims 3 Ambitions, along with a series of fun facts and details taken from the other European events, that you will find highlighted by this symbol !Information taken from other fan  events!, as we cannot guarantee their accuracy. The following article, like the previous, was written together with my mate Paperpin.

Tratti e desideri vitaliziTraits and lifetime wishes

Ambitions introduces six new traits, each of which can help you with the new careers:
  • icon_cashBorn salesman;
  • icon_lightbulbEccentric: great for inventors;
  • icon_ecofriendlyEco friendly: this is the trait that has been covered the most. It might have been introduced to focus your attention on the environment, so your Sims will be positively (or negatively) affected by several actions. If you choose to ride the bike or use the carpool service to go to work, your Sim will get a positive moodlet. On the other hand, using your own car will give them a negative mood. Also: eco-friendly Sims will prefer showers instead of bubbling baths and, as we’ll see shortly, when doing the laundry, they will use the clothes line instead of the dryer. They will also enjoy recycling with the new recycling bin;
  • icon_insanDramatic;
  • icon_microscopePerceptive: great for private eyes, gain logical skills very quickly;
  • icon_vaseSavvy sculptor.

We have also asked Grant if there are hidden traits, and he replied that no, there aren’t in this EP and probably there will never be anymore, as they’re quite hard to get (in fact, when he asked us if we ever had the chance to use them, we answered “yes, but using hacks”).

There are, anyway, new lifetime wishes related to the new traits, but we didn’t have the chance to see them.

icon_awardmLifetime rewards

Satisfying your Sims’ wishes will allow you to purchase new awards:
  • Suave Seller: gives you an extra bonus for each completed job;
  • Entrepreneurial mindset: allows you to know your customer's traits quickly;
  • Artisan crafter: you can earn more from the items you sculpt ;
  • Fire proof homestead: your house will be permanently fireproof;
  • My best friend: allows you to get a Sim Bot for about 40,000 points.

Please note: as during the event Grant hasn't named the rewards since he was showing them on the screen, we have taken the list of names from other previews. The meanings of Suave Seller and Entrepreneurial Mindset may be inverted then.
