I really like the look of the “rebuild vehicle” object thing…lol, anyways what types of things can you do to it rather than change the colours?

MaxoidScott (Feb 21, 2008 5:40:28 PM)
I really like the restorable car as well. You’ll only be able to paint it once you’ve actually finished working on it, though! First, your Sims will have to put in some time working on making the engine work and the body shine.

In The Sims 2 FreeTime, how do you setup a current created sim with the life time and secondary aspiration. Does it do this automaticly or similar to Nightlife with the potion for turn ons and Offs?

MaxoidScott (Feb 21, 2008 5:45:15 PM)
Every Sim will have a lifetime aspiration bar, regardless of whether they already exist or are created in CAS after FreeTime is installed. Secondary aspiration is something that you can “buy” with benefit points that you accrue for keeping your Sim’s aspiration high.

Building the Train set seems particuarly fun. Is the Trainset customisable? Or does it appear in seperate Stages like when a Sim paints?

MaxoidScott (Feb 21, 2008 5:49:45 PM)
The train set is awesome! It can be totally customized. Each Sim that buys the table can choose to have a different set of items on the table, including trees, signs, a small town, a mountain, and a lake. There’s a total of 256 possible configurations (if I did my math right)!

Can you explain “customizable” radio stations?

MaxoidJerome (Feb 21, 2008 5:58:22 PM)
It means that you can create your own playlists with the songs that we have in the game or your own MP3s. So you can have your favorite songs play on the radio in the game (and your Sims can do the slap dance to it :))
