The Sims 3

Live Broadcast – July 30th Recap

Here is a recap of today’s live broadcast, we saw two venues, the world, hoverboards and Create a bot.

Import shop – Mall of Tomorrow

This shop has pedestals where you can buy items from the future, like hoverboards.


Gives new advanced technology skill that helps sims fly better on the hoverboard as they progress in the skill.  Sims learn this skill faster in the future world than in the home world.

Mannequins are items like pedestals where you can browse and buy futuristic clothing from, create a custom outfit or go straight to CAS.

OfB element in this expansion pack? Wonder if we can own our own store!

Nuts and Bolts bot emporium

At this venue you can buy Plumbots, parts for the Pumbots and work on your bot building skill.

Can adjust these parts:


  • Basics (including gender)
  • Head
  • Body
  • Arms
  • Legs

Building a plumbot costs 250 simoleons and joins the family. Building a plumbot is one part to this skill, you can also build trait chips that adjust the traits of your bot. Like give the robonanny trait so it babysits your kids!

There is also a quality aspect to the bots.  The higher the quality of the bot the longer the bot will be able to operate before needing maintenance or a battery charge.

Here is a list of the chip options currently shown (descriptions are guessed by us):

We saw the main part of town with really futuristic looking buildings, a lot of glass in the buildings and greenery.

Then in the distance is the wasteland that we will hear more about in the future.
