Since I'm an amateur, please forgive me if I make any mistakes during typing. If you have something I don't know (tips, secrets, etc), please e-mail them to me. I'll update it here and give you the credit. Please give me logical ones though, since I'll be testing and once it's approved, it'll be here for people to read. Thanks for reading this faq by the way. ____________ 3.0 Getting Started ____________ Here are some basics you need to know before playing the game. The main purpose of this game is to complete goals and you need to do various tasks in order to complete the goals. ___________ 3.1 Districts and Apartments ___________ In the Urbz: Sims in the City, there is a total of 9 districts. Each district has its own unique style and a set of goals which you must complete. Goals include building reputation, socialising with people, getting in the VIP room, completing 3 job levels etc. I will elaborate later in the walkthrough. There are also 3 apartments which you will be staying in. You will first start with 98th Ave 3rd Floor. Others will be unlocked when you gain enough reputation as the game progresses. Just like your own home, you get to customise the apartment with decor and furnishings you like. There is also a unique pet that comes with each apartment (but you need to unlock it). The pet can be annoying as it always dirties the place. ___________ 3.2 Needs ___________ Just like any Sims game, your Sims have their needs. However in this game there are only 5 needs. The needs affect your mood which in turn affects your social interaction. 1) Hunger: You need to eat in order to survive. Food at be found in refrigerators, vending machines or almost everywhere be it in the district or your own apartment. You can even call for pizza if you want. If the hunger bar turns Red, then your Sim is hungry. Green is a good sign which means your Sims is full. 2) Bladder: You will need to go to the toilet!! The more you eat, the more frequent you will need to use the toilet. Every district has its own toilet and if you do not go to the toilet in time, your sims will wet themselves. Eeekss... you may be fined too! 3) Fun: Everyone needs to have fun even your Sims. So please do fun things like dancing to the Stereo or watching TV or watever that is FUN. 4) Hygiene: Your Sims wants to live in a clean environment including their body. So take regular showers, and clean up the mess made by your pet and also clean up used plates. 5) Energy: This is important as your Sims need to rest. There is a bed in every district so sleep tight when needed. You can also take a nap on a sofa or buy an isotonic drink. Remember that if your Sim is too tired, he/she may fall asleep on the floor. Bad mood!!! _____________________________ 3.3 Career & Items Needed _____________________________ You will need money in this game and getting a job is the only way to get money. Simply heed to any Simolian sign found in every district. Each district has a unique job. There are 3 levels for each job which you need to fulfil. Everytime you complete a job level you will be awarded with a social move. To progress in job levels 2 and 3, you will need certain skills. They are 'Artistic','Physical' and 'Mental' skills. To increase your skills (up to 30), you will need to purchase skill building items which will be unlocked as you gain reputation. Each item can increase your skill up to 10 the max. To further increase your skill you will need to buy an upgrade from the shop. Upgrades can be unlocked as you gain more reputation Artistic Skill = Schnizzalator Physical Skill = Exer-cycle Mental Skill = Mental Machination Station each has 2 upgrades! Reputation Pts: 45 - Unlocks a new skill building device. 70 - Unlocks a new skill building device. 95 - Unlocks a new skill building device. 75 - Unlocks a skill building upgrade. 110 - Unlocks a skill building upgrade. 150 - Unlocks a skill building upgrade. 200- Unlocks a skill building upgrade. 260 - Unlocks a skill building upgrade. 320 - Unlocks a skill building upgrade. ___________ 3.4 Reputation ___________ So much has been mentioned about reputation. So what is it actually. Your reputation depends highly on relationship made with other Sims. Sometimes you gain reputation from completing goals. Note that reputation is needed to enter the VIP room or to unlock other district or aparments. With higher reputation, you gain higher rankings and make it easier for you to socialise. Highest ranking is the Superstar!!! ___________ 3.5 Fashion Sense ___________ Each district has its own style of dressing and you will need to follow it. You can purchase clothes from at a clothing shop located in each district. The shop will sell clothes according to the District's fashion style. The right clothes makes socialising easier and gaining reputation needed to enter VIP rooms and unlocking other districts. Any clothes bought will be sent to your wardrobe so you can change your style any time you want to. In each clothing shop you can customise the head and body. Tatoos and piercings can only be found in certain districts. ___________ 3.6 Socialising ___________ You will need to interact and make friends here. In order to socialise, simply select the Sim you wish to interact with and pick a social move. There are 3 color codes to each move according to your relationship with that particular Sim. Green - Move might work to your advantage Red - Move may not turn out well Yellow - Move that might turn out either way There are different categories of moves: Network ------- Talk Gossip Ice Breakers ------------ Joke Tickle Brag Greet ----- Back Slap Buzz Euro Kiss Fake Punch Game On Head Butt High Five Hug Knuckle Up Panhandle Party Shout Rap Snippy Snap Act Friendly ------------ Air Guitar Artsy Dance Blow Flame Body Bonk Bust A Move Compare Phones Gamble Give Back Rub HoloXam Pub Song Skate Trick Snap Shot Spit Trick Vogue Join Crew Act Mean -------- Deafen Firecracker Dance Hyper Shock Mock Paparazzi Pop Sign Language Slam Slap Tag Face Throw Signs Act Romantic ------------ Bite Grab Booty Kiss Lounge Lure Smoke Trick Striptease Suck Face Tango Techn Tuck N' Hug 360 Power Socials ------------- BlastiKiss - The Foundry Chug A Lug - Gasoline Row Mug - South Side Beach Party Bomb - Skyline Beach Power Chord - Cozmo Street Sk8R TriiQx - Kicktail Park Stink Bomb - Central Station Strobe - Neon East XAMShot - Diamond heights courtesy of Elvor ___________ 3.7 The XAM ___________ The XAM functions as a PDA or as a cellphone. Press Square button to open it. Phone: Use it to call the other Sims or invite them over to your current location. You can use it to order food, call the Fire Department, the Police or even throw a party. Explore the function Messages: Its like the SMS system where you can receive text messages from your friends. Darius constantly messages you once you have unlocked a new location. Messages on additional missions will also be sent to you as a reminder. It can store about 20 latest messages. Goals: This is an important function. View all your goals according to district and apartment. Once you've completed a goal, it will be ticked. Inventory: Use this to view the items your Sims have bought from the shop. Items stored here can be placed anywhere in your apartment and district. Use it also when you want to remove or even sell any of your items. Relationships: Shows you your progress with each Urbz in the city. A friend is indicated with a positive number while an enemy is marked with a negative number. It is advised to have many friends as they help you gain reputation points and also teach you certain social moves. Customise: Collect different skins and ringtones to customise your XAM to your favourite color and ringtone. _____________________________ 3.8 Buying and Selling Guide _____________________________ Here is a guide to how you can go about buying and selling your items in your inventory. Buying Guide ------------- You can only buy items in the 9 districts. Look for a cash register. That symbolises the shop. Take note that not all items are available for you to use as they will be unlocked as you increase your reputation. Once you are in the shop, select any item you wish to purchase and click (X) The item will be transferred to your inventory in your XAM. To insert the item to whichever place you like, simply go to your XAM, select inventory, select the item and then proceed to placing the item. If you wish to remove the item, go to grab-mode. Enter into your inventory. Press square button. Select the item to be removed by pressing (X). Then press on the square button. The item will be removed and placed into your inventory. Selling Guide -------------- Alright, now supposing you do not want the item anymore and you wish to sell. Simply go to the shop marked by the cash register. Once you are at the shop, notice that 2 inventories will be opened. On your left is the shop inventory while to your right is your own inventory (as in which items you have purchased from the shop). Move to your inventory by pressing on the circle button. Automatically, your inventory will become active. Select the item you wish to sell. Press (X). Item will be sold. To return to the shop's inventory, press circle button again. NOTE: The item will be sold AT A CHEAPER PRICE that what you originally bought if you have placed it in the game before. SO you make a LOSS! Also, take note that items that are originally in the game are considered PUBLIC PROPERTY. You cannot move them to your inventory much less try to sell them. You also cannot overbuild as you may infringe on some fire safety law. Removing Walls, Wallpaper and Floortiles ---------------------------------------- To remove walls, go to your inventory. Press R1 once. Press square. To remove wallpaper, press circle instead of square. To remove floor tiles, press circle twice instead. _____________________ 3.9 Some Useful Tips _____________________ Here is a list of some tips which I think might be useful. 1) Pet pee pee: Okay I know that this is simply annoying but there is a way to reduce the mess. Simply select the pet and choose the option: "Follow Me". Amazingly, the pet would not make a mess. Try it. 2) Vending Machine: If you want to get free supply of food and drinks, then KICK on the vending machines. Most of the time some food item will drop down and you will get free food. 3) Free Food: There are also other sources of free food. One is the Sushi counter at Neon East. After you've completed your work there, select on the sushi on the table to eat. There are also bars around in the districts. Just go over there, you might be able to get some free drinks. In Cozmo Street do the bar tending shop. Generally the BBQ grill food is also free of charge. 4) Cop Fines: Try not to use the 'gamble' social when the cop is around. I know that the 'gamble' social is a friendly social move in Southside Bridge. However, the cop does not like it. He will Fine you for gambling. Sometimes, he will even fight with you and beat you up. Another thing is peeing in the districts. He will fight and fine you if he sees you. Avoid such a situation if possible. This is something interesting about J.J. You need to complete level 3 of any of your jobs. Notice that you get to control J.J when you are at the job. After you've JUST completed it, you can actually socialise with him! Really! Select him and well socialise. I did some socialising and he actually changed CLOTHES! From the normal light blue outfit that the janitor wears, he changes into a darker blue outfit wearing a purple T-shirt inside... something like that. So whenever you are at level 3, the J.J. will always wear that new outfit. Interestingly, there will be another janitor once J.J. is in his new outfit. ___________ 4.0 Walkthrough ___________ In this section, I will elaborate in detail about the different apartments and districts and their respective goals. I will also cover the different residents in each disrict and how to go about completing your goals. ___________ 4.1 Apartments ___________ As mentioned earlier, there are 3 apartments each with its unique goals and pets to unlock.They have to be completed in order. 1. 98th Ave, 3rd floor ----------------------- You will start from this apartment when you play the game. Firstly, you will meet Will who introduces you to Darius. He will also teach you how to use Power Socials. Here, you will receive $300 cash and a refigerator, a shower and a couch all found in your inventory. Check you XAM (press square button). Resident: You and your pet bulldog (after you've unlocked it) Goals: Add $750 worth of furniture to 98 Ave, 3rd Floor to unlock a pet Bulldog. Add your free furniture and buy a few extra things from the district to unlock your first pet. You will receive an acknowledgement once you've completed your goal. 2. Blankwood Towers ---------------------- To unlock Blankwood Towers, you require 80 reputation points. You can move your furniture from 98th Ave to this apartment. Simply return the furniture to you inventory in your XAM. Select the furniture X button, and click on the square button. The object will return to your inventory. Then move house. Note: I've received a lot of questions regarding the wardrobe or secret closet in Blankwood Towers. Now please get this info straight. There is no secret closet if you are using the PS2 version. The secret closet can only be found in the GameCube version. Please refer to the GameCube faq for this game if you want to find the closet. This faq is written only for the PS2 version. Resident: You and your pet cat (after you've unlocked it) Goals: Add $3000 worth of furniture to Blankwood Towers to unlock a pet Cat. Again buy furniture. 3. Darius' Penthouse ---------------------- To unlock Darius' Penthouse, you will need to defeat all the villians and create Darius Secret Machine. Darius will take you to his apartment and give you his chain. Its a pretty plush apartment I must say. Check it out yourself. You will also gain access to his secret machine which can generate lots of $$$ for you! Bling Bling!

My family for letting me use our Television (I hog it!) _______________ 8.0 Cheats _______________ This is such an easy game to play!! For heavens sake, why do you since want to use cheats!!! I did not use any Cheats to beat this game. Took me only a few days to complete it. Honestly, I do not know of any cheats. Sorry...if you were looking for one. Its not that I do not want to include it but I do not know of any. OK. So there's no need to e-mail me about Cheats. I DO NOT KNOW OF ANY. ________________________ 9.0 Questions & Answers ________________________ This are some of the things that people have e-mailed me about. Only useful ones will be posted. Qn 1 The City is always TOO crowded! How to invite my crew over? Ans Every district can have only 2 visitors or outsiders at one time. Your Sim is considered as one visitor. Other visiors include J.J., the cop, Darius and other Sims from the other districts. Try to monitor to see if there are any visitors before calling your Sim friend over. Qn 2 How to sell items? Ans Read my buying and selling guide please!!! Note that you have to hit on CIRCLE button to move to your own inventory. Qn 3 How do I pay rent? Ans Honestly I do not understand why some people are so keen about paying rent. The answer is you WILL be ASKED TO PAY when it is time for rent collection. Its a standard $1000/- paid to Henry. But you can REFUSE to pay him. However, he will reposses your items!!! Unless there is nothing in your apartment.. then you might be safe. Not sure about that. Qn 4 Can I kill my pet? It's annoying... Ans Well I have not tried killing my pet. But what you can do is to surround it by building walls. Then its trapped for good. I know the pet pee pee thingy is simply annoying. As mentioned in my TIPS section, select "FOLLOW ME" option and your pet is less likely to make a mess. It works try it. Also, for me once I've achieved my goal in the apartment I do not go back to see my annoying pet. Just live in the districts. Qn 5 Why should I make someone join my Crew? Ans Okay... there are 2 members whom you must recruit. They are String Bean and Loop D Loop as given is your mission. However, you can also recruit other characters. The thing is you get to control your crew. Simply press L2 and you get to control them. Ta daa!! However I don't think they can take jobs. I tried but failed. Maybe someone can tell me if there is a way. Qn 6 How do I create the Darius Secret Machine? I've completed all my goals. Ans You need not create the Machine. Once you have unlocked Darius Penthouse, the machine is available for you to use. Look around in the hall of the apartment. There is a grey table. Once you click on it, you will see the "Mint Simoleons" option. Ta daa.. thats the secret machine. Its very profitable... try it and you'll know why. Good Luck! Qn 7 Where is the secret closet in Blankwood Towers? I can't find it. Ans There is no secret closet in Blankwood Towers if you are using PS2. The closet can only be found when you play using GameCube. Qn 8 If tried tagging Ally Stile's face numerous times but unsuccessful. Everytime I try, she will grab the spray can from me and tag my Sims face instead. Please help! Ans Lower your relationship points with her. Its best to get 0 relationship points. Try using the Stink Bomb or Mug power socials to lower the relationship points. However, lowering relationship points alone may not be enough. Its persistence that will enable you to tag her face. Go talk to someone else, try and tag Ally, fill a need, try and tag Ally. Sooner or later it will work. But it may take a LOT of tries. Good Luck! Qn 9 How come the Villian does not appear? Ans In each district, there is a villian whom you must use a power social on so that they will never return to the district again. Villians usually appear around 1-2pm. Do not do any jobs at that time. The villian will also not appear if the cop is in the district. Furthermore, if there are too many people visiting the district then the villian will not appear. There can only be 2 visitors at a time. Just wait patiently and the villian should appear within an hour. =================== THE END!!! =================== Al-Fez @ Princess of Darkness 1 Jan 2005 Singapore
