The Sims 2 is easy to grasp but here is a short introduction on how to play anyway. Although The Sims 2 doesnít actually have levels, in the game your sims do grow older as the game progresses, so sadly they all die one day. O.K, Lets get started. The first thing you need to do is choose one of the neighbourhoods on the list or make your own (You can completely design your own if you have Sims City 4- see www.thesims.com for the program and related downloads). After youíve chosen your neighbourhood down in the corner there is a button to create a familyfor which you must first think up a last name e.g. Smith.

Next, you can make a sim. Choose male or female and then press the numbers down the side: 1, Chooses name, gender and size; 2, Selects a basic face; 3, Chooses hair style; 4, Allows for more face editing; 5, Has all the clothes you need to dress your Sims; 6, Is where you choose thier aspiration and star sign.

Now you have finished your first sim you have the choice of making another. If you do you will need to connect all the people on the family tree under the list of people. After you have made all the people in your family you need to press the tick at the bottom of the screen. This will take you to the neighbourhood again and now you can choose a house. Or you can click on the button in the corner to build on new land or find a computer made house to use.

You have your house but there is something missing: Thereís no furniture! Click on the furniture icon at the bottom corner of the screen again to get your stuff. Bedís are in the sofa button and strangely the wardrobe is in miscellaneous (3 dots). Also in miscellaneous there are items for parties and things for babies. All the other items are easy to locate.


O.K. Now you have given your house some furniture lets give it a pool or some more rooms just click the build button underneath the items. Find everything you need from there and if you need any cheats they are available on www.ukcheats.com that with help you with your money problems, if you have any.


Now you have all the house prepared its time to live your Sims lives. To start off with I would say to get a job, by going to the computer or waiting for the paperboy to come to your house. When you click on either of them, it will come up with a box with a job. There are more jobs so if you donít like the first job offered just click keep searching (Personally I think the cooking career is the best job but thatís just me).

Now you have to wake your Sims up on time for their new job. The cooking is a good career because you need cooking points to get promoted and you need them for a more filling meal. You will need to feed them 3 times a day and any other time they need it but they do get 1 meal at work.

If you havenít made a child and would like one you can call the adoption service and choose an age. The child will come the next day at 10:00 am. One of the parents will need to be there to collect them when the time comes, and also if the parents arenít married who ever called the service will be thier only parent. The child will not be able to eat a full meal unless an adult or teenager makes it for them. Now you need to get a promotion click on the button to view your work options and see what skill points you need.

All the skill points can be achieved with a mirror, bookshelf, TV and weights and all those will provide you with all the things you need to do. To use these items your Sims need to be happy and have nothing on the list in the red or they wonít work for long.

Now that we have all that out of the way you will need a girlfriend/boyfriend or you Sims child will need one. There are many ways of getting one but the best is to go into town and meet someone. They will instantly know you and you need to be nice to them or they wont ever come around so try something out on them and if they like what ever you did do it again and again and again... soon he or she be will come over on a regular day to day basis.

When you invite someone over and they go in the middle of the day just ring them back up the second they leave and invite them over again this will work unless they got really angry with you just before and eventually you can propose and get children and then it will start all over again with them

Thereís just one more tip: NEVER cook without the cooking skill points

The Sims 2 is easy to grasp but I am here to boost that little gap to learn how to play. Well the Sims 2 doesnít actually have levels but in this one they do grow older so that means sadly they all die one day or another. o.k. Lets get started. The first thing you need to do is, choose one of the neighbourhoods on the list or make your own. Actually you can completely design your own if you have Sims city 4 find out how on www.thesims.com. On that page you can find loads of down loads like houses and people. After youíve chosen your neighbourhood down in the corner there is a button to create a family to create a family you need to first think up a last name e.g. smith.


Then select the other options on the page. you have to make a person. Choose male or female and then press the numbers down the side 1, is name gender and size. 2, has got a few starter faces to edit next. 3, is the hair. 4, is all of the face editing. 5, has all the cloths you need to dress your Sims 6, is were you choose there aspiration and the star sign.

Now you have finished your first person you have the choice of making another. If you do you will need to connect all the people on the family tree under the list of people. After you have made all the people in your family you need to press the tick at the bottom of the screen it will take you to the neighbourhood again and now you can choose a house you can click on the Button in the corner to build new land or find a computer made house to use.

Bedís are in the sofa button and strangely the wardrobe is in miscellaneous (3 dots) also in miscellaneous there are thing for parties and things for babies. And all the other items are easy to locate.


O.K. Now you have given your house some furniture lets give it a pool or some more rooms just click the button underneath the items. And find everything you need from there and just a tip if you need any cheats I have already put some on www.ukcheats.com that with help you with your money problems, if you have any.


Now you have all the house prepared its time to live your Sims lives. To start off with I would say to get a job, by going to the computer or waiting for the paperboy to come to your house.
