The Sims Social Vacation Homes Guide

How do I get going?
Click the new ‘Locations’ button that appears to the left of the ‘Inspiration bar’.
What do I need to get a Vacation Home?
To be applicable to purchase a vacation home you will need to have completed the following steps:
  • Your Sim will need to be Level 10 or above
  • You will need a house value above 33k
I’ve completed those steps, what do I do now?
Click the ‘Locations’ button once again and then click the ‘For Sale’ property on the map.  You will now be prompted to fulfil the second part of the deal:
  • Have 12,000 simoleons
  • Have 5 Certificates
  • Have 10 Contracts
Can I pay for Certificates and Contracts?
You can use SimCash to purchase the required Certificates and Contracts to make the process faster, but with a little help from your friends, no SimCash is required.
Applications takes time!
As you can imagine, land is very sought after in Littlehaven Shores. There are millions of applications to approve.  You will need to wait 24 hours before your application can be processed.
Your application has been approved!
It’s all yours!! Once your application has been approved, you'll soon know about it! Why not share this excellent news with your friends?!
Can I buy new items and use them in my Vacation home and my Littlehaven home?
Yes, once you purchase an item it can be used in both locations. No shipping fee is required!

  5. "No shipping fee is required!"

    Cute! Haha! ;) I like it, thank you! This was a really great idea for this game. "Add more place"... LoL! It would be so much fun to include more cool places... Like "Going to our career/Job" place, would be cool...

    Places like art centers and writers centers and other cool community areas that can help us, gain items and bring up "Simoleons, Social Points and Sim Cash"! Yeah?

    Like it would be soOoOoOo Cool, if there was a place to goto, where we can have fun with "Making clothes", and Playfish can update the fashions, (For an example) - If we can make clothes, at a new place, with "borrowing equipment"; that could raise our Sim Cash or Simoleons, then that would be fun... Extra fun stuff to do, aside from "Career" option..

    I think that would be so cool, can you consider it? What I'm trying to say is "Borrowing Skill Items", maybe some that are Sim Cash?

    Like let's say if it was a map "Clothing Center", and let's say some people do not have the money or whatever for "Creating clothes", so there could be a random of skill items already there, we can "borrow" (not take home with us, lol) and that there, with working the skills can up our Sim Cash or Simoleon (Sim Cash? would be cool, lol)

    And, each click if we can get at least 2 Sim Cash or even 1, LoL, that would be cool... Seriously, "Please"??? Oh this idea would bring people back into Sim Social and make me so excited over this game... Consider-it, Playfish!! Please????

    If we could something like this; like "Community Centers", where we can borrow skill items, for rewards, would be so freaking awesome... A "Clothing Community Area" on the map and then, once the skill be done... We can get clothing, sent right to our storage area...

    Then, there would be fairness... People who would pay "Sim Cash" for things get it easily... But to get those items that are Sim Cash items, by working for it... Can not only be rewarding but can "teach" about working for things, like in the real world...

    So, aside from the future plan of receiving "Careers", going to communities to earn what we want, even if what we want is Sim Cash, we can't afford in this game... We can earn it... Do you think that's fair? And Fun? --- I know I do...

    That'll make this game more fun... Please, consider it... Thanks!!!

  6. It would be so cool, if it was on the map, a "Spiritual Community Center"; a center that would bring up our social points... One that'll have us participate in meditation, spiritual growth, and we can choose which path we want to choose, for activity.. Not career, per se'... And, we can advance by each level we gain in it... Like, let's say for example... On the map, it can saw "Spiritual Enlightenment", and when we click on it, we're taken to a Buddhist or Healer of some spiritual enlightening figure; Like Buddha?! Or Ancient Egyptian Figure - Like Anubis? (My favorite Egyptian Figure...) Anyway; let's say we approach that figure and once clicking on it; it gives options at first... "Spiritual healing, Spiritual Growth... etc. etc."... Then, once we pick our path chosen... We delve deeper into it - when they ask us questions and give wisdom... Which, of course... We use our energy for this... But; as we progress and each option chosen, and within talking with this figure - it would bring up our social points and maybe give us quests (without time limit - to work at our own pace) - For a reward... <3 It would be a great ingame activity...

    Just another idea to consider? Please? I think this would be so much fun and people, I'm sure, would totally enjoy this... <3 Maybe, there could be a random of different figures there at this "Spiritual Enlightenment Place"; and we can choose, which one we want as our Guide or Teacher...

    What do you think of this? Playfish, check it out and see if you can make it happen...

    Since, now we have our vacation home, we can build on our map, different cool places... This one; I think would be cool, aside from Careers, we should have a "Special Activity", option... Not required but open for us to adventure upon...

    This would be great for all ages, fun and rewarding on all levels...

    Think about it... I would love to see this in game, as well...

    Just thinking of some ideas that I feel would be great for Sim Social... But, aside from this... Please, fix the bugs... Having trouble with the game and my inbox- everytime I close something, like "accepting or okaying" things in inbox, it puts it right back there..

    Can you fix that, please? Thank you!

  13. Kathy Klaaren:
    If You put the room with the stuff to the storage, de items are still in that room, so pick it out from the storage and pick the items out from the room too, that's why they not shown in the storage.

  22. I think EA should think about adding pregenancy,sims moving in together,making babies,marriage,being able to go to clubs,hotels,being able to cheat on your partners and so on

    ReplyDelete
  23. they should also think about adding being able to build mansions,basements,swimming pools,jacuzzis not hot tub,schools for our babies to be attending,hotels you can go to with other sims not your partner to cheat on with,saloons,cars and bicycle that can be driven and riden by are kids,being able to live in apartments,generations being able to continue

  24. Hehe, I'm really enjoying my Beach House! It's amazing and I just adore the sand and everything. They should do one more vacation home - this time in a very opossite location. In the mountains, with snow. :D I'll really like that too. I'd love it to be like in the Alps!!! :)

    By the way I'll put there the Zen Spa when I finish it! :P
