The yard has plenty of extra space so you may want to add something fun in the backyard or if you’re rich, you could add an extra room to put fun items in.

Then, throw a party and go over to the stereo and dance. Get people to join you. If you get all or most of the people into the art gallery at the same time, you will have completed this goal (the actual goal here is to get all or most of the people in a room with a rating of 90 or more)! Prize: KraftKing Potter's Wheel (Creative Skill Building) §§ VISIT MIMI'S PLACE AND MAKE SURE MIMI IS OK How to complete: Ok, head over to Mimi’s house and you will find out she has left a big mess.

You’ll need to get 4 people to become members and you can do it over time (Thank god it doesn’t have to be all done at once). If the person you are trying to get to join the gym is in a bad mood, you will need to get their mood up before they will join.

Marriage I have added this by great demand in emails. All levels from here on out have a Get married goal except for Malcolm’s Mansion. Once this goal is completed in one level, it will be marked in all of them! Ok, for starters, you can only marry a character that lives on 1,2, or 3 Free Street. The character must be above 70+ with you in a relationship and in a good mood. If they reject you, feed them and try and do something fun with them. Then, try and propose to them again. This could take a few minutes or a couple days. It’s somewhat luck and skill both. P.S. I will add a children section somewhere if enough people ask for it. Also, please email me if you need more help with this goal. ------------------ IVa.

The easiest thing to do is add an extra room on to the side and make that the bedroom and Kitchen. The bathroom oddly doesn’t contain any baths or showers so you will need to buy some of those.

Go to the inventor’s table and start making inventions, which are rocket gnomes if you have the mech skill you need(if you have less than 8 in mech it will only make normal gnomes!).

The only items you may need to get is some extra beds (2-3 if you have a wife and child), maybe a computer for fun, and maybe you might want to replace the TV. Otherwise, the house is in pretty good shape. §§ BUY $2000 WORTH OF IMPROVEMENTS FOR THE HOUSE How to Complete: 2 or 3 new beds and a new TV should do it.

This can be very tricky so I recommend you do it the first way!

A kitchen upgrade may be in order because you get stuck with the gourmet stove and Barbecue. Make sure you clean up often or build a room for eating in, as all of the trash will affect your room score when going to work since the entire level is outside. §§ BUY $2000 WORTH OF IMPROVEMENTS FOR PIXEL ACRES How to Complete: Buying the kitchen upgrade and items for fun will easily clear this goal. Prize: Hot Spring Conversion Kit §§ FRAME MALCOLM AND GET HIM BUSTED FOR INDECENT EXPOSURE How to Complete: You can complete this in a few different ways. I will give the simplest here. A. Become friends with him and get him in a good mood. Then ask him to (get free) with that feature special to Pixel Acres. B. Finish the ghost problem goal and have a synthesizer. Play the Pixel booty song on the Synthesizer while Malcolm is over and it will force him to get naked. Then you will have completed this goal! Prize: $5000 §§ SEDUCE SOMEONE AT CASA CALIENTE How to Complete: Get into a love relationship with someone at Casa Caliente. Then, head over to the Bearskin Rug and (relax) while you’re over visiting. Find the person you have a romantic relationship with and ask them to (join) you. After a while, she will climb on top and start kissing. Once they are done kissing for the first or second time, the goal message will pop up! Prize: Varmenkozze Euro Fireplace (Build Mode - Fireplace Tool) Unlock: Shiny Things Labs - Visit §§ FIND SOMEONE INTERESTED IN CHASE'S SECRET FORMULA How to Complete: First, you must become friends with Chase to think about doing this goal to get his social (tell Secrets). Head over to the Shiny things labs (if you have it unlocked) and find either Vaughn or Makino and use the (tell secrets) interaction on them. IT will then say you have completed the goal! Prize: Boomtown Redwood Table Unlock: Goth Manor - Visit §§ FIND OUT WHAT "GHOST" OF A PROBLEM THE GOTHS ARE HAVING How to complete: You must have Goth Manor unlocked to complete this goal. Make sure you have a high creative rating (and I mean like 8-10. I’ve heard it has to be 9 or above. Please confirm this by emailing me). Go over to the Synthesizer and start playing it. If you have the rating you need, then the goal will be completed!

The Octagon ----------------- Theme: Spoof of the Pentagon Residents: General Payne (Snap Out Of It!) Maxine Powers (Karate Chop) Promotions: Mad Scientist and Paramilitary, Levels 8 & 9 Malcolm takes Miss Gyrotic and the Sentry security System Suggestions: You may want to upgrade your kitchen here as you notice there isn’t very good appliances. The beds are all spartan beds, which I don’t care for much so you may want to get some new beds and/or couches and chairs. §§ BUY $2000 WORTH OF EQUIPMENT FOR THE OCTAGON How to Complete: Try buy Miss Gyrotic as soon as possible (She can be used to complete a mission here). Upgrade the kitchen and beds are the only things needed. Prize: Atlantean Column (Decorative) §§ MISSION: ELIMINATE SENATOR LANDGRABB How to Complete: Your objective here is to get Malcolm as miserable as possible. The easiest way is to get a Miss Gyrotic and invite Malcolm over. Activate Miss Gyrotic and put her in “defense” mode once Malcolm gets there. Miss Gyrotic will attack Malcolm and give you your 5 grand. There is another way to do this but I do not want to steal ideas. Look at the other walkthrough if you would like to know how to use that way to finish this goal! Prize: $5000 §§ MISSION: FIND AND SHUT DOWN THE HACKERS How to Complete: Go to the Shiny Things Labs and find the computer right in the entryway there. Click on the computer and choose the option (steal computer). Prize: Spartan Special Desk Lamp (Lighting) Unlock: Club Rubb - Visit §§ MISSION: FIND AND SUPPRESS ANTIWAR PROTESTORS How to Complete: Before starting this goal, make sure you have a high body rating (preferably 7 or more). If not raise it up (well, you have the AbDominator, make good use of it)! Now head over to Club Rubb, if you don’t have it, complete the goal above to unlock it. Find Bing or Mona and (attack) them. If you win the fight, you will have completed this goal (don’t worry, you don’t have to be in a bad mood to earn the (attack) interaction for this mission). The party must have started as well for this to work! Prize: Toy Parrot by FauxFriend (Decorative) §§ MISSION: SEEK AND DESTROY BIO WEAPONS How to Complete: Go to Goth Manor if possible.

Malcolm's Mansion --------------------- Theme: Dream Home (Not Quite) Residents: Malcolm Landgrabb (no interaction) Promotions: All Careers, Level 10 Malcolm takes Nothing, he leaves, he's chased off by your scary mom! Suggestions: Ok this is short and sweet, Malcolm chases your mom off the estate land and is never seen again! THis is sorta cool because you get the crib to yourslef but also doesn't help much either. You will find this place has everything you need so good luck upgrading it! I also wanna mention the bills at this place are 6,000 plus so unless you're rich, get in, out, and on with life! §§ SHOW OFF YOUR FORTUNE AND UPGRADE THE MANSION How to Complete: SPend 20,000 on whatever. Skill building stuff will help the most. Buy a dance floor and DJ booth. That's expensive! Doesn't have to be done at once if you're short on cash, so just come back later if that's the case! Prize: Limo Ultimo (this is easily the coolest car in the game!) §§ SEND YOUR CHILD TO PREP SCHOOL WITH STRAIGHT A's How to Complete: Well, since it has the word child in it, you well need a kid to complete this goal! Just keep your kid going to school and have them study when they get home. YOu'll be there in no time! If they miss a day, say bye bye to a full letter grade! Keep them going to school and you won't have this problem!

User Submitted Articles Tesla Coil Error: “I've spotted a mistake in The Sims Bustin' Out! When you use the Tesla Coil (Skill Building), you can create balls of lightning. If you go to buy/build mode, you can sell these lightning balls for 50 simoleons! You can also move them around and place them somewhere else. And the mistake is that these "balls" have no name!” Submitted by Connor ******************** If you make a mutant plant and feed it enough trash,recycled newspapers or ashes it will grow and if your not careful it will eat you. Depending on which Sim it eats your game will be over...I learned the hard way :( Submitted by Kristy R ******************** After u complete moms house stay to build stats to 5 everything, then go to mimis place to earn more money so that u can go back to moms house and get the other 5 everything. It helps greatly Submitted by Harry A. ******************** You can't travel to different locations in free play mode Submitted by N.J.!!! ******************** I've discovered a very nifty trick for very easy gain in money. You simply create a Mutant Plant in the Gene Genie Incubator and feed it a lot of trash. Feed it enough trash (careful not to get eaten in the process) until its fully grown. Go into Buy mode and select it. Its worth §500. Submitted by Tammie F. ******************** GLITCH: I thought I might contribute to your walkthrough by telling you about a weird glitch in the game.I went to free street and created two girls for me and my brother to marry in the game. One of them that I married appeared in my brothers "free street" at the kitchen cooking. Then she would go in to my brothers bed and sleep. Then my brother saved it and quit then next time he played she was gone and then came back later. Its weird. The End. Submitted by Harkey's Honey (I think thats email name!) ******************** After getting married, the spouse normally doesn't have a particularly red-hot job. I found that by going back to Mimi's or Dudley's, they can be promoted through their career tracks in the same way you did yours. So for example, if you wanted Gangster for the spouse, you'd get 2 promotions at Dudley's, and then move yourself and your spouse to the Gym, and so on. I found this REALLY great for having that extra source of income. I just trained the spouse along the way, and then just went back for the promotions while I solved some of the missions I hadn't finished before. Submitted by Zach ****************** Glitches: i found a glitch in the game.... when you are at the octagon.... if you have enough lights in the place.. when you call for a repairman.... the lights keep going out enough that he never leaves so you dont have to pay him... the other one i dont know if its a glitch or not.. but i hired a repairman and i have one of the best tv systems you can have.. the one with the 9 screens... and he watched tv instead of leaving... this happens at the malcom's mansion Submitted by gishwashquay ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- I.
