...from PrimaGames' guide!

Those who read the official board on TheSims3.com, know that there's a user (Rosierealea) that has already received her copy of PrimaGames' Late Night guide, and posted a few messages about the EP. Many of the things said there, have already been reported in our coverage of the event in Milan, but there are many new details that we'd like to share with you while waiting for the game to be released this week.

Astrological signs

The first new thing I see is about Astrological signs. They don't affect personality, but they give sims a flirty new "What's your sign?" interaction, and give a bit of a relationship boost if the signs are compatible. Each sign is compatible with 4 others, so a Pisces like me would get a boost with Scorpio, Cancer, Capricorn and Taurus.

Social

There will now be multiple parties thrown every week by citizens. As you increase your celebrity status, you will receive more invitations. You canb aslo try to crash the parties that you weren't invited to. Sims with the Party Animal trait are never denied entry to a party, so they can crash any one they want. The map will show you any active parites.

There aren't many new socials, and they only focus on a few topics: 
  • Ask to join, quit, kick out of band
  • Offer/thank for free drink
  • Ask Butler for advice, for massage, to cook
  • Dismiss or fire butler
  • Slow dance
  • Town tour
  • Vampire drink, offer to turn, ask to turn
  • Celeb interactions (impress, name drop, ask for autograph, etc)

Mixology

There are more than 60 drinks you can learn to mix. At least half of them are Mood Drinks, which give the drinker a certain Moodlet. The types are: 
  • Party Drinks - improves theoverall score of the party
  • Romantic Drinks - more receptive to romantic socials
  • Skill-Gain Drinks - inreases skill-building rate
  • Negative Moodlet Removal Drinks - temporarily gives the Wash Away the Worry Moodlet, but only while they are actively drinking it
  • Energy Drinks - gives the Wide Awake moodlet, the same effect as taking a nap
  • Crazy Drinks - makes them act silly with the Going Wild moodlet

Vampires

Vampires are rare. They don't hang out in the open, so you must look for them in the classier bars. Once you build a relationship withone of them, they may turn you into one if you ask, but they won't do it in public. They will suggest a remote location to you for the transformation. Once changed, the bite marks lasts several days. Your Sim feels crappy for a couple of days until the transformation is complete. 
You can't turn other "special" sims into vampires, such as ghosts, robots, mummies. But a dead vampire can be ressurected to a playable ghost. Vampire ghosts are dark crimson.
They have special skills, such as the ability to run fast, they build skills nearly twice as fast at night, they rarely lose physical fights, they complete homework nearly twice as fast, and they can make sims romantically think about the vampire. Romantic socials from a vampire are successful more than 90% of the time. They age much slower than other sims. 

Eating foods with garlic will now give sims a Garlic Breath moodlet. If a vampire eats garlic or drinks from a sim with garlic breath, they will pass out. They cannot drink from robots, ghosts, mummies, children, or pregnant sims. 

Butler

The butler lives with you, so you'll need a seperate bedroom for him. He costs 1200§ per week, and has level 10 cooking and handiness, and makes beverages and gives massages. It looks like there will be two kinds of butlers, or at least there are two wishes related to them:
  • Hire a Butler - Hiring another Sim to tidy up the house and watch after the children is a nice perk. Your Sim wants to hire a butler. 
  • Hire an Executive Butler - Living in the lap of luxury includes having another Sim to wait on your Sim hand and foot. Your Sim wants to Hire an Executive Butler to manage his household. 

The town and the venues

New objects

The Bubbluscious Bubble Bar can be used at home on a community lot. Blowing bubbles fills the fun need, and since up to 4 can use it at one, it can also fulfill social. You must place stools around it so Sims can play, and the bubbles must be periodically refilled. Each bubble flavor gives a specific moodlet:

  • Mint: Minty breath
  • Strawberry: Strawberry social (increases the chance that a target Sim will respond favorably to all non-romantic socials)
  • Cotton Candy: Sugar rush
  • Banana: Banan-ahhhhh
  • Chocolate: Chocolate Chuckles (increases the likelihood that a humor-based social will amuse the target Sim)
  • Pineapple: On the Beach

The bubble bar also has a hidden skill which can be developed by playing at the bar. The bubble shapes change based on the current skill level:

  • Round: Levels 1-2
  • Heart: Levels 3-4
  • Star: Levels 5-6
  • Plumb Bob: Levels 7-8

Dartboards:

There are two models, a regular board and an electronic one. Spectators may cheer or boo a game (evil Sims love to boo). Dartboards have a hidden skill. The more you practice, the better you become. Athletic, Lucky, Party Animal, and Disciplined Sims have a greater chance of winning. Unlucky, Loser and Couch Potato Sims have a greater chance of losing.

Handy Sims (at level 7) can upgrade the electronic dartboard so it never forgets them and makes sure they never lose. There is a chance that other Sims will discover this and give them a negative Cheated moodlet while decreasing your relationship score with them. Sims with the Martial Arts skill have a fun Kung Fu throw.

Hot tubs 

Every hot tub has a slot for a stereo, which boosts mood while soaking.Sims can skinny dip in hot tubs (but not if there are teens or younger on the lot).If you Try For Baby and get pregnant in the hot tub, there is a chance the baby will receive either the Party Animal or Hydrophobic trait, or both.Keep an eye on your clothes when you're in a jacuzzi, they might be stolen.If this happen your sim must go home only dressed up in a towel.

Groups

Sims in your group will automatically socialize with each other (and will pay for their own food, drinks and entertainment). You can invite the group to your home, to venues, and to parties being thrown by other Sims. Sims may leave your group if:

  • They have a negative interaction with another Sim (argument, fight)
  • If you get too flirty/romantic with another Sim in the group (except for Inappropriate Sims, who don't generally mind)
  • They are very tired
  • They have to go to work soon (unless they are Party Animals)
Computer-controlled Loner Sims don't want groups larger than two Sims, and will leave if you add a third Sim.
