In The Sims 3. players control their own Sims’ activities and relationships. The gameplay is open-ended and doesn’t have a defined goal. Challenges occur randomly based on each Sim’s lifestyle, like relationships, skills, and jobs. Career opportunities like working overtime or completing tasks can yield a pay raise, cash bonus, or relationship boost. Skill opportunities are the requests by your sim’s neighbors or community members for Sims to solve problems using their acquired skills for cash or relationship rewards. If the opportunity is connected to a Sim’s school, the reward may be increased school performance.
