Let's begin.

After you load your game, you will need to choose a language. Do that.
Little trailers, then titles come up.
Then, choose "Get A Life". Build your very first Sim here.



----------------------
-The Sims Introduction
----------------------
You can use this mini type game to get to know the game, and your Sim.
You can play on the various different items around the house also. Ignore
the girl if she wants you to get in, but you do have to get in. Don't leave
it too long.
If you feel like exploring, go ahead.
I would suggest trying: Vibrating Bed, Snooker Table, Pool, Hydro-Shower and
maybe the Pinball. Gurry back after though, because if you don't then the 
girl will leave and the game is over.
------
Goals:
------ 
	None here
------------
Unlockables:
------------ 
	None here

 
"Buy" and "Build" modes are disabled here.

---------------
a -Money From Mom
---------------
This level is quite easy, and can be quite fun, if you know what you're 
doing. Do all the things from collecting mail, building up your knowledge 
database, repairs and occasional sleeping. 
------
Goals: 
------
       	Borrow $800 from Mom
       	This is quite easy. Just keep her happy, and keep asking her whenever 
       	she's in a good mood (do this by switching to mom and press R2)      
       	Repair TV
       	Mom needs her shows! You can't buy a new TV, that won't work. When
       	you're in a good mood, nip over to the bookcase and catch up on your 
       	mechanical skills. 1 Point is fine to repair the TV, but have a read
       	whenever you can because those points are valuable in coming levels.
       	Have a read whenever you can.
       	Cook Dinner Without Starting A Fire
       	Self explanatory, really. Just the same as above, go to the bookcase 
       	and read a cooking book. Press R1 to Fast Forward if you're getting
       	bored.
       	Maintain House Value
       	Keep your house in good condition, maybe put a few things in. If the 
       	house value drops while you're living there, your mom will charge you
       	the amount the value decreased in.
       	Get a Job
       	You can only do this after you've done all the above goals. After 
       	you've done them, grab the newspaper from outside, and have a look for
	a job. Pick one, then someone will pick you up.
------------
Unlockables:
------------

        Aroma Machine: Unlocked when you cook your first meal.
        Vanity Table: Unlcoked after you fix the television.
        Running Machine: Unlocked when you get your first job.
        The Museum: This bonus 2 player mission is unlocked when you borrow
        800 simoleons from mom. Can be found in the Bonus section in "Get a 
        Life"
        Beejaphone Electric Guitar: Unlcoked if you get through the house in
	24 hours or less.

--------------
b -Reality Bites
--------------
Well, you're finally getting somewhere. You're living in a bigger house, on
your own. But the only catch is that the place is a mess, and the electrical
appliances are broken. This is where those extra mechanical points come in.
Cooking skills are also important here.

------
Goals:
------ 
        Clean The Place Up
        As you would normally do to clean, get all the junk up from around the
        house. Don't forget the ash at the back of the house, it is easy to 
        miss.
        Fix The Broken Stuff
        As I've said before, you can't just buy new stuff. Read the book to get
        at least 3 Mechanical Skill Points. Then, just repair the stuff.
        Upgrade Your Abode When You Go To Buy Mode
        Self explanatory. But in some fencing, do a tad of decorating,
        whatever it takes to get your house value up from $34,561 to $35,711.
        Get Promoted To Career Level 2
        Go to work in a good mood, also check you skills menu, and any more
        skill points you need will be highlighted in yellow.
        Get Ppromoted To Career Level 3
        Same as above
        Complete All The Goals So You Can Move Out
	Duh...

-----------
Unlockables
-----------      
        Drinks Cooler: Unlocked after getting promoted to Level 2.
        Teppanyaki Table: Unlcoked after getting promoted to career level 3.

        The Frat House: Unlocked after you move out of the house. Can be found
        in the Bonus section under Get A Life.
        Handyman: Unlocked after you fix all the appliances.
        Maid: Unlcoked after you clean the place up.
        Coat of Arms: Unlocked if you get through the game in 4 Sim days or
	less.
--------------
c -Party Animals
--------------
You've moved in with Mimi or Dudley, depending on the sex of your Sim.
You're gradually climbing the career ladder and working your way up the scale, 
or so to speak. Social elements are the main goals here, you must get promoted up two 
levels, throw a party and hopefully find a roommate via the party. 
I would suggest you work on your promotion before you throw your party and find your 
roommate. 

------
Goals:
------ 

        Throw a raging party
        Use the phone to call up some mates. Get the hot-tub going, get a 
        beverage bar and call up for some pizza.
        Upgrade your abode when you go to buy mode
        Do what you can to get your house level from $53,180 to $54,680.
        Get promoted to career level 4
        Go to work in good moods, and check you skills menu to see what points
        you need.
        Get promoted to career level 5
        Same as above
        Move Out With Someone from The Party
        Keep your guests happy, and ask one of them if they are willing to
	shack up with you.

------------
Unlockables:
------------
        Strip Poker Table: Unlocked after you get your promotion to career 
        level 4.
        Master Suite Tub: Unlocked after you get promoted to career level 5.
        Tree Swing: Unloced after you increase house value.
        The Motel: Unlocked when you throw a raging party. Can be found in the
        bonus menu in Get A Life.
        The Park: Unlcoked when you greet and feed Bobo the tramp. Can be found
        in the bonus menu in Get A Life.
        Head In Curio Jar (?): Unlocked if you get through the house in eight days
	or fewer.

-----------
d -Hot to Trot
-----------
The ladder is nearly coming to an end! You're near the end of the game now,
no doubt you'd have guessed that.
Dudley/Mimi hates you now cause you moved out, and this level is all about
opportunities. 
Building up all your skills here will be nice and useful. 
Nearly there now!

------
Goals:
------
        Throw a raging party
        Self explanatory. Get some pizza, get the hot-tub going, and put on 
        some tunes.
        Upgrade you abode
        Pretty simple really. Get it up from $46,050 to $48,050. Upgrade your
        telly, stereo, stuff like that.
        Get promoted to Career Level 6 
        Go to work in good moods and check your skills bar to see what you 
        need to top up.
        Get promoted to Career Level 7
        Same as above, really.
        Get luck with someone at the party
        Try and get in their good books by giving them back rubs, telling jokes,
	talking.

        Jukebox - Unlocked if you get through the house/level in eight days or

-----------------
e -Who Loves Ya Baby
-----------------
In my opinion, this is the hardest level. You are having kids and getting married 
(if divorced).
Some fun available to have though, concentrate on making babies here.

------
Goals:
------ 
        Get married 
        You will only have to do this is you have had a divorce.
        Upgrade your abode
        Pretty simple, new TV, stereo, computer, stuff like that.
        Get promoted to Career Level 8

        career menu to see what you need to top up on.
        Get promoted to Career Level 9
        Same as above, really
        Take good care of your baby
        Feed it, play with it and just generally keep it amused.
        Keep kids in school
        Do what it takes. Keep them in good moods, stuff like that.

Cool things to look out for here are the Monkey Butler, also a pretty nifty 
ending.

------
Goals:
------
        Get promoted to Career Level 10
        Just the same tactics as above, keep fit, and keep your social skills up.
        Send kids off to prep school
