Lots of new social interactions have been added, althought the Sims website has not been specific as to what those are. Your neighborhoods are bigger - 30 lots each which you can zone for commerical or residential use. Also there are new homes, new parks, a new cafe, new shops and a farmer's market! Your new dog or cat can be brought to these locales and used to interact with your sim neighbors. Just like in Downtown, time freezes when you're in the community sections.
Each neighborhood will include a pet store, where you can choose from 12 different cats (e.g., black cat and siamese cat), 12 different dogs (e.g., dalmatians, beagles, french bulldogs, spaniels, rotweillers, labs, greyhounds, german shepherds to name a few), 2 different birds (lovebirds and parakeets), or buy a turtle, lizard or fish. The Maxis folks haven't forgotten any of the details of pets, if you buy a male and a female of the same species, they just might have babies, dogs and cats (and dog and cat people) might not get along, and Kitty might take a liking to your bird or fish
Beware - your doggies and kitties (but not the other animals) need to be trained and cared for so they don't go to the bathroom in the house or rip us the trash. Don't worry - Maxis is kind enough to provide a dog trainer if you're feeling lazy. But, your pets are just like a member of your family - they will have needs and skills which can be acquired (through positive and negative reinforcement). Just like people, you have to develop a relationship with them.Read more ›
Take a little stroll ito a new place called "Community", sort of like "Downtown Mode"or "Vacation Mode". As in Downtown, the time at home freezes when you go to Community. Once you're there, skip on over to the pet store, where you will find 12 different kinds of dogs, 12 different kinds of cats, around 3 kinds of birds, or a lizard, turtle, or fish. And there's even more--train your new friend to do tricks! But that's not all you have to train them to do. You'll also be required to train them things like, where to go to the bathroom. Too lazy? That's fine. You just need to reach the nearest phone to call a trainer. If you neglect your pet, however, It will wreak havoc. It will tear up your precious garden, drink from the toilet, and if it's ticked enough, get into the trash can and fill your house with litter.
Maxis didn't forget the nature of pets, though. If you have a cat and a dog, don't expect them to be best friends. If you get a male and female cats or dogs, expect kittens or puppies. Your pet could scare away unwanted pests from your garden. A cat will keep the mice away, but would probably be very interested in your fish or bird (Heh heh).
Take 'em to the park to find a new friend, encounter new enemies, or locate a new lover. You heard me--your pets will help you with new relationships! (Think "101 Dalmatians"!Read more ›
