The Sims 3 is a widely played video game that allows players to design and control digital characters known as Sims. The game allows players to live the various aspects of their Sims’ lives, including their careers and personal relationships.
The Lifetime Rewards System allows players to improve their Sims’ abilities, social interactions, financial situation, and overall game enjoyment.
Lifetime Points are earned by fulfilling the Sims’ wishes and maintaining positive moods. These points are spent on various Lifetime Rewards.
These rewards come in the form of objects and permanent states that help Sims with minor difficulties or annoyances, such as lack of money or skills, and improve their overall quality of life.
These Rewards can sell for Simoleons or in-game currency.
The base game object rewards are worth a fifth of the original cost. A Food Replicator, for example, costs 50,000 in happiness points and can sell for 10,000 simoleons. Some of them are worth less or valued at a higher stature.
This feature lets players earn money in-game by purchasing and selling Lifetime Rewards.
Another important aspect is that some Lifetime Rewards can become unavailable once a Sim has completed their lifetime wish.
Some Important Examples:-
- The Change Lifetime Wish reward is only available to Sims that still need to complete their life’s wish unless we already possess a pre-installed mod that creates adversity.
- The Long Distance Friend is unnecessary after completing skill journal milestones.
Players must plan and choose rewards to purchase to make the most of their Lifetime Points.
Some rewards can be in the form of physical objects that help the Sim, and others can be in the form of a permanent state that gives a Sim special abilities.
The Steel bladder allows them to hold their bladder longer or hardly hungry, which makes them able to go longer without eating.
Lifetime rewards possess no adverse effects on their application.
Lifetime rewards contain value according to their usefulness and practical nature.
In conclusion, Lifetime Rewards in The Sims 3 are a fun and helpful feature that allows players to improve their Sims’ abilities, social interactions, financial situation, and overall enjoyment of the game.
