1  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / The World Of Pudding / Re: Just a word of warning - - Walmart Prima Guide on: 2009 June 04, 20:56:35
This post is just for idiots like me who:

1. Would buy a Prima Guide in the first place.
2. Would pick up a book the size of a paper back and expect it to have legible font size.

The guide Wal-Mart has is tiny and the printing is so small, I'd expect this book was made for insects to read. Don't bother with this edition unless you want to go completely blind. I will now have to march to Wal-Mart and stage a hissy fit in order to get a refund, because they do not like to refund books.

As you've taken the plunge on loser street, any chance you could have a look at the guitar challenges section and tell me what it says about the playing at 10 parties/venues? I can't clear it and it's pissing me off.

And! I hate that they do not announce that you're having multiples! Like when they go to the hospital for the Dr. consultation they could have a popup saying it went well and you're having twins, or triplets! Or they could at least bother to tell you when you deliver! So you can cordinate names. I know thats been said before, but I still hate it, lol! They should bring back TS2 way of a pop up with "Baby Boy" or "Baby Girl" if you have twins, it is 1 box with both babies name boxes. It would be so much easier, but of course EA can't have us being happy or having things easily handed to us!

Is that not what the town hall is for?

Re: Butterflies - Have you tried that Stone Henge place?
I practically live at Stonehenge. Found the tiger-striped one there, and it looks like as soon as I can find the rainbow one, I'll have them all.

Also found the plutonium at the mine.

Nice one - Give my guitar party trick a go, you won't be disappointed. You don't even need refreshments for the guests. In fact, it's probably better if you don't. I earn shit loads from it. You can certainly earn at least 3/4k per party when your skill gets to the top, and you can host 2 parties per day. Great way to earn a living and keep a party animal sim happy.

No, which is disappointing. I thought at least that we'd be able to make jewelry out of them.

I've been trying to get all butterflies. It has not gone well. So far, I have:
Green Swallowtail
Royal Purple
Mission Blue
Zephyr Metalmark
Red Admiral
Silver-Spotted Skipper

I know there's a rainbow one, but there has to be one or two more. I'm currently saving up for the collector's perk, but had to spend some points on ensuring that my sim would be a great host. I don't want to see an over-reactive party animal after a bombed party.

Get the guitar skill up to around 4, or ideally 5, then just play guitar (or for tips, if you can) just before the first guest arrives and carry on till everyone leaves. I've hosted about 30/40 parties like this and the worst score I've had was pretty good, but most of them are "great."

First post, so do your worst!!

I've got my game on epic settings, but I've got a couple of helpful hints and a question in return.

1) Learn to play the guitar as an essential - as soon as you get to level 5 you can play for tips. This is beneficial for two reasons, not only increasing your funds but it also builds your relationships with the NPC's.

2) Parties, to ensure every party is a success just get there early and make sure you're playing the guitar when the first guest arrives and just keep playing for the duration of the party - playing for tips will also earn you shed loads of cash (invite rich sims) at your own party. My record was about 5k for a 2 hour party - good work if you can get it. If you do this in community locations, you will also get other people watching and "donating" to your income.

3) Buy the community businesses as soon as you can afford them - it's a big outlay but you're rewarded with between 1.8 (hogans fryer) and 15k (medicine/science) a week depending on the business.

4) Relationships - host party and invite all people you will want to smash through the headboard (or Woohoo with rose petals in this pleasant-valley-world) and play guitar for them till your relationship bars will be maxed. Once you've reached this point, it's only a skip and a jump away from getting jiggy wid it. I'm just trialling the game and trying out different things at the moment, but inviting over best friends cuts the time down in the courting process.

Invite them over and make sure you use the "invite inside" option and go from there. I've impregnated Agnes Crumplebottom, Claire Ursine and Cornelia Goth each in about 3/4 sim hours using this method.


has anyone had any success with the guitar skill additional challenges? I've completed 2 but I can't clear the party/community venue challenge.

I must have played about 20 parties and performed the same amount of concerts at the stadium and theatre but I can't clear that one for some reason. Help appreciated.
