You can customize the neighborhood using edit city mode. Way of life, needs of the sims: The sims have basic needs, such as hygiene, hunger, fun, social interaction and sleep, depending on how you control their needs will affect their moods between them, positive, negative or neutral. Neutrals do not raise or lower the sim's mood. Some of the mood states can meet the needs of the sims. Others are part of the result of activities that are related to their traits or their social relationships. A Sim with a negative mood can affect the performance of a certain action, or it can also affect performance at work or school.

Wishes of the sims: The sims have different wishes that accumulate and that after a certain time they vanish if you do not fulfill them. When you fulfill a promised wish by clicking and placing it in the four boxes that are offered to you, the sim is It will give you happiness points and the mood: "Done". If you get to gather enough points in the rewards catalog you will find how to spend those points in a satisfactory way for your sims. In addition to each sim being a young adult has a "Lifelong Wish", which if you fulfill it you will earn a good amount of reward points that also includes a special mood. This lifelong wish can be found when you create the sim, or you also have the possibility to choose it during growth, during childhood and adolescence of the sim, baby and toddler sims cannot have a lifelong wish.

Aging of the sims: The sims live by period of time, which can be adjusted by the player in the settings. Sims go through various stages as baby, toddler, child, teenager, young adult, adult, and old man. Sims normally die of old age or can die prematurely from many causes such as fires, when they are very hungry, from drowning, electrocution, etc. When they die, they are turned into ghosts which are not playable, which can appear to other sims in the family if you have the grave at home, there is a mission that allows you to turn a ghost into a playable character.

Sims personality traits: Babies and infants can only have two traits, but they can also acquire one more trait at each age stage, they can reach the five young adult traits with which the rest of their life is already preserved. life . When you create a sim and want to give it a trait, you will be able to appreciate a wide repertoire of traits, which you must choose correctly because there are cases in which some oppose each other and cannot occur at the same time. There are traits that are acquired depending on various factors , as for example, in the case of newborn babies, their traits will depend on whether the mother has had a good pregnancy or when your child sim learns everything they should learn such as walking, talking and using the potty and if they developed well their toy skills. In adolescents and young adults they will depend on their performance in school and on their achievement of an A before reaching the stage change on their birthday.

Sims skills: The sims develop skills and for this you can practice some skills by studying a book about a subject, either through books that you can find in the city bookstore, or make the sim pay for a class, these classes can only be used once. There are books of various levels, for example, for beginner sims with levels between 0 and 3, for intermediate sims with levels between 4 and 6, also advanced for higher levels.

Jobs and part-time jobs: Sims have the possibility of obtaining simleons through jobs such as medical, business, military, sports, science, culinary, politics, music, law enforcement and criminal, if you perform excellently in these jobs you will have a promotion, but if you reach level 10 work, your salary will be increased; There are also several places where you can apply for jobs like grocery stores, spas, bookstores, and the cemetery.
