In The Sims 3 World Adventures a Picture is Worth a Thousand Words
POSTED ON 11/11/09 07:34 PM

Get ready to take your Sims on the adventure of a lifetime! In The Sims 3 World Adventures your Sims are visiting real-world inspired destinations and now can capture those moments by using the new photography skill; photographers eye.

You can now buy cameras in the market from the General Goods Merchant in all three locations; Al Simhara, Egypt, Shang Simla, China and Champs Le Sims, France. You can take your skill to the next level by reading a photography skill book or get the most advanced equipment by traveling to Al Simhara, Egypt where they house the most expensive cameras in the world. Once you have the skill down, you can take stylized photographs like Sepiatone or Vignette or larger panorama sized photographs.  You can make a living as a photographer and with a higher skill level, you will of course make more mula when you sell your shots!  You don’t have to be a pro though, you can complete various photo collections or hang your photographs on the wall of your home after returning from a trip and just reminisce about the amazing adventure.

This new skill gives you new tasks, opportunities and lifetime wishes to complete. For example, you can now complete a photography wish like ‘take a photograph of a pyramid’ or fulfill an opportunity like ‘teach a photography class at the school to earn a reward.’ Some adventures will require your Sim to snap a shot of a specific object. There are new lifetime wishes associated with photography like “Visionary: reach level 10 in both painting and photography skill.” As you are sightseeing, some of the landmarks in the game are recognized such as, The Great Sphinx, A Pyramid, The Dragon Cave, Chinese Garden, The Market and more!

The Sims 3 World Adventures will be available the week of November 16, 2009.
