will sims be able to own helicopters?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:00:18 PM)
Yes, you will be able to own helicopters.

SirenPrincess (Aug 7, 2008 12:00:19 PM)
Can witches wear normal clothes or will they always wear their witch outfit?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:00:19 PM)
Yes, witches can wear regular clothes and go « incognito »

Tingofea (Aug 7, 2008 12:00:46 PM)
Will our sims pay rent?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:00:47 PM)
Yes, you pay rent weekly.

SimHead82 (Aug 7, 2008 12:01:17 PM)
Hey Maxoids! Do the closets come in more than one size?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:01:17 PM)
Closets come in 2 forms. One is a 2 tile sliding door that goes on the wall, and the other is a one tile freestanding rack so that you can make a walk-in closet of your desired size. 🙂

Sim23839 (Aug 7, 2008 12:01:23 PM)
Is Belladonna Cove a Neighborhood you can chose from the main menu, or a sub-Neighborhood

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:01:23 PM)
It is an all new neighborhood you can choose from the main menu!

becki (Aug 7, 2008 12:01:24 PM)
Are pets allowed in the apartments?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:01:24 PM)
Yes, you can bring pets into your apartment (if you have Sims 2 Pets installed)

deskp (Aug 7, 2008 12:01:48 PM)
can normal pets live in the apartments

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:01:48 PM)
Yes, your pets can live in apartments too.

Breezy9592 (Aug 7, 2008 12:02:13 PM)
are there any new death?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:02:13 PM)
Yes there is a new death…. be very careful opening the Murphy Bed. ;-P

Bologna (Aug 7, 2008 12:02:48 PM)
What is your favorite new object in the expansion pack? Be it a random decoration object, or something Sims can interact with.

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:02:48 PM)
I love the open mic where sims can sing, recite poetry and comedy. Also love the breakdancer.

Nay (Aug 7, 2008 12:03:07 PM)
will rents be based on the size of your apartment?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:03:07 PM)
Yes, the bigger your apartment, the more it will cost. But the quality of the appliances that are in the apartment upon move in also plays into the price

zola (Aug 7, 2008 12:03:49 PM)
How many storeys can the apartments be on the most?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:03:49 PM)
The same as it’s always been for residential and community lots (and of course you can use the cheat to make it higher).

Jenpow01 (Aug 7, 2008 12:04:25 PM)
Can we use closets in regular houses?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:04:25 PM)
Of course! You can create walk in closets or erect a 4 walled box to place the 2 door version.

Guest (Aug 7, 2008 12:04:33 PM)
Hey maxoids! What do you like the most about Apartment Life?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:04:33 PM)
I love the fact that I can just walk over to neighbor’s door and knock on it! It’s also cool to everyone get out of their apartments and gather in the « common areas » to hang out and build relationships

Malamute2345 (Aug 7, 2008 12:05:04 PM)
how many roommates can you have?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:05:04 PM)
One non controllable roommate per household.

Ant (Aug 7, 2008 12:05:42 PM)
Are there just apartment buildings, or are there townhouses and condos were you have to pay rent, too?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:05:42 PM)
An apartment lot can have as few apartments as you want, so you can make a duplex/townhome or a rental home or whatever style of building you like.

Malamute2345 (Aug 7, 2008 12:05:53 PM)
How does the rotating bookshelf we saw in the trailer work?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:05:53 PM)
It functions like a normal bookcase, but if you read a certain book, it will lead you to another room.

Tanner (Aug 7, 2008 12:05:59 PM)
are there going to be prebuilt aparments?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:06:00 PM)
You’ll find several in the bin as well as all sorts of apartments in Belladonna Cove. For example town homes, mobile homes, lofts, penthouses and lofts.

2che (Aug 7, 2008 12:06:12 PM)
if the roomate is a NPC…will he pay rent?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:06:12 PM)
Of course your roommate has to pay rent! You’re not going to let him freeload, are you? Roommates will pay rent based on the amount of Sims in an apartment. So if your family of two gets a roommate, s/he will pay a 3rd of the rent

emerald (Aug 7, 2008 12:06:57 PM)
can i have buttler in flat too?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:06:57 PM)
Of course!

Tego (Aug 7, 2008 12:07:09 PM)
I don’t understand exactly how the apartments work. For instance if only one playable family lives on an apartment lot and NPC families live in the rest what happens if you want another playable family to move in?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:07:09 PM)
When you decide to move in a second (or third or forth) playable family, the NPCs will let you have the pick of their apartments and which ever place you take, that NPC will move somewhere else.

Denkzz (Aug 7, 2008 12:07:35 PM)
What are all the different apartment types?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:07:35 PM)
You’ll finda all sorts of apartments including town homes, mobile homes, penthouses, lofts and studios.

no1butus12 (Aug 7, 2008 12:07:51 PM)
How long will butlers be able to stay?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:07:51 PM)
Butlers work a full day.

Jeff (Aug 7, 2008 12:07:55 PM)
Does Apartment Life come with a new neighborhood?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:07:55 PM)
Yes, Belladonna Cove.

Camisado (Aug 7, 2008 12:08:25 PM)
How often will we pay rent?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:08:25 PM)
Paying rent is really easy. Once a week you go to the mailbox and drop off your rent check. Make sure not to be late or you will get into trouble with the landlord!

ErhamaPlayer (Aug 7, 2008 12:08:42 PM)
Can we own cars on apartment lots?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:08:42 PM)
If your apartment building is built with garages (connected to apartments), then your Sim families can place a car in them.

Patt (Aug 7, 2008 12:08:45 PM)
What chores does the butler do?

MaxoidScott (Aug 7, 2008 12:08:45 PM)
The butler does everything you’d want a butler to. He cleans up messes, tends children, fixes broken things, gardens, and even cooks and answers the door!

mabynke (Aug 7, 2008 12:09:17 PM)
How many sims can live in each apartment?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:09:17 PM)
While it could get cramped you can have as many Sims live in an apartment as on a residential lot…that’s 8 Sims and 2 Pets.

Guest (Aug 7, 2008 12:09:49 PM)
What ages are witches?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:09:49 PM)
Teens through elders can be witches.

leniStar (Aug 7, 2008 12:10:07 PM)
Can we become landlords?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:10:07 PM)
The landlord is a non playable character.

Guest (Aug 7, 2008 12:10:26 PM)
can we interact with other sims in neighbouring apartments (eg, will we see our sims in different apartments?’

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:10:26 PM)
Yes – you can walk over, knock on your neighbor’s door and (if they’re home) walk in. And of course you can see your Sim while you’re over in your neighbor’s flat

gabe0199 (Aug 7, 2008 12:10:49 PM)
can kids be witches to?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:10:49 PM)
Witches are teens through elder Sims.

SimInTheSun (Aug 7, 2008 12:10:58 PM)
Can our sims marry the butler?

MaxoidScott (Aug 7, 2008 12:10:58 PM)
Yes. Assuming they charm him enough, of course.

BlossomAngel23 (Aug 7, 2008 12:11:03 PM)
Are there any new foods or food stands available in this EP?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:11:03 PM)
There is a really cool Hot Dog/Gyro food stand.

pepek92 (Aug 7, 2008 12:11:16 PM)
Could you use Build Mode when you are in apartment?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:11:16 PM)
There are a few build mode things you can do while your Sims live in an apartment, like paint their walls and replace their flooring.

gianttacosalad (Aug 7, 2008 12:11:40 PM)
There are 8 to an apartment right, not 8 to a lot right?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:11:40 PM)
Correct. There can be up to 8 Sims and 2 Pets in an apartment, although if you’re not renting the penthouse it could be cramped 🙂

SuperSillySim (Aug 7, 2008 12:12:24 PM)
Can witches change back to « normal » or are they always going to be a which?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:12:24 PM)
You can cast a spell that will change a witch back to « normal ».

sobored131 (Aug 7, 2008 12:12:26 PM)
can you remodel your apartment while living in it?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:12:26 PM)
It depends on how you define « remodel ». You can repaint the walls and floors, put objects in, etc. But the landlord is not going to let you move walls or put in new doors, etc.

steve (Aug 7, 2008 12:13:33 PM)
I’m most excited for ceilings!! How do they look and what are you feelings on them?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:13:33 PM)
I LOVE THEM!! 🙂 They make taking screenshots really fun!

becki (Aug 7, 2008 12:13:41 PM)
Does Belladonna cove have anything to do with Bella Goth?

MaxoidScott (Aug 7, 2008 12:13:41 PM)
That is a great mystery of the Simsverse. Is it? There is certainly that curious statue in the center of town…

SirenPrincess (Aug 7, 2008 12:14:26 PM)
Can you tell us about the new social status?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:14:26 PM)
In AL you’ll see new social groups that tend to be found in certain areas. Gearheads and Bohemians are more prevalent in low rent districts while Socialites and Techies are in high rent districts.

saveoursouls (Aug 7, 2008 12:14:40 PM)
What do helicopters have to do with AL? I mean how will we use them. In the base game helicopters pick us up to go to work. So how will it be used in AL(if there is a new way)?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:14:40 PM)
You can now own the Helicopters.

PajamaRick (Aug 7, 2008 12:14:59 PM)
Are there different kinds of vending machines?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:14:59 PM)
There are snack and drink machines.

sunbonnet52 (Aug 7, 2008 12:15:02 PM)
Won’t the money be all lumped together in an apartment like it is now in homes? How can Sims pay separately for rent?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:15:02 PM)
All Sims living in one apartment unit are a family and will be responsible for the rent of that unit. All other families that are moved into the same building will pay their own rent.

Jerms (Aug 7, 2008 12:15:34 PM)
How do the ceilings veiws work?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:15:34 PM)
In build mode you’ll find a new UI button which provides a 45 degree angle from the floor of your ceiling. In Live mode you can toggle on and off ceilings with a ui botton found in the lower left corner.

regencynut (Aug 7, 2008 12:16:54 PM)
how do you designate individual apartments? Is it by using specific doors or by something else?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:16:54 PM)
Yes, like hotels (and dorms) there is a specific door (a new apartment door with a welcome mat) that must be used as the only door to the apartment.

my maddnes (Aug 7, 2008 12:17:18 PM)
where do u park a helicopter?

MaxoidScott (Aug 7, 2008 12:17:18 PM)
Why, on your brand new helipad!

Mac (Aug 7, 2008 12:18:24 PM)
what was your favourite thing about developing apartment life and why?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:18:24 PM)
The team put their hearts into this pack to make it simply amazing. We put ceilings and closets and lots of amazing objects for our builders. We provided lots of new outfits for the fashionistas. We have Butlers and breakdancers and heart beds and even a spring rider for toddlers. A lot of love went into this pack.

Sergavon (Aug 7, 2008 12:18:53 PM)
Can you brush your teeth in AL?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:18:53 PM)
Yes. We have added a couple of Medicine Cabinets that your Sims will be able to grab a toothbrush from and brush their teeth.

MaxoidScott (Aug 7, 2008 12:18:56 PM)
and sweat. A lot of sweat went into this pack too.

blueeyes233 (Aug 7, 2008 12:19:11 PM)
could you explain what is meant by Freeze Time?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:19:11 PM)
Freeze Time is a VERY powerful witch spell. It actually changes the workings of the space time continuum and makes time itself stand still. I hear that some witches and warlocks are immune to it, but few have the power to cast this spell, so I don’t know for sure.

Thyrcmng827 (Aug 7, 2008 12:19:22 PM)
Are we expecting new Wants and Fears?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:19:22 PM)
Of course. With all the new additions how could we not include new wants of fears, especially with the addition of witches.

xstacielove (Aug 7, 2008 12:20:29 PM)
If there is only one door to an apartment can we balconies

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:20:29 PM)
Yes, you can have balconies and even backyards in your apartment units

Twiggers849 (Aug 7, 2008 12:21:15 PM)
Can adults use any of the playground equipment?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:21:15 PM)
The playground equipment will be amazing for children and teen Sims. However, Adult Sims can push children on the merry go round.

darkroses909 (Aug 7, 2008 12:21:28 PM)
can witches have babies?

MaxoidScott (Aug 7, 2008 12:21:28 PM)
Yes. The path of magic does not render Sims infertile.

boko95 (Aug 7, 2008 12:22:43 PM)
can you create potions like the Love Potion from the couldron?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:22:43 PM)
Yes, if you have the appropriate other eps (like Nightlife for the Love Potion) then your witches will be able to learn to make the potions on their cauldron. There are new potions in this ep as well.

boko95 (Aug 7, 2008 12:22:59 PM)
are there secret doors like the bookcase?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:22:59 PM)
The secret bookcase is like a hidden door.

JaimePG (Aug 7, 2008 12:23:16 PM)
Can special sims be witches? A vampire-witch, a zombie-with,… etc.

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:23:16 PM)

KCKfish11 (Aug 7, 2008 12:23:22 PM)
I heard you can have uncontrolable roommates is that true?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:23:22 PM)
Some of your roommates are indeed out of control! Some of them are really nice, though and will be a real help around the house. But your roommates are like pets – you can look at their motives, but not actually control what they’re doing

Tasha (Aug 7, 2008 12:23:53 PM)
Will brushing their teeth bring up their hygiene like washing theie hands?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:23:53 PM)

Mordred555 (Aug 7, 2008 12:24:14 PM)
Can our neighbors be noisy?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:24:14 PM)
Yes, your neighbors can make noise that disrupt your sims and your sims can complain about it to get it to stop.

Niky (Aug 7, 2008 12:24:34 PM)
Can you marry or date your roomate?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:24:34 PM)
Yes, you can ask your roommate to move in as a « real » member of the family.

Faris (Aug 7, 2008 12:24:45 PM)
Do new families have to start out in an apartment?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:24:45 PM)
No, you can move your Sims into any lot.

subaru815 (Aug 7, 2008 12:24:59 PM)
Any new animals?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:24:59 PM)
You’ll find a small dog who comes in a pen as well as a huge aquarium with lots of interesting aquatic action.

Guest (Aug 7, 2008 12:25:04 PM)
Do you have to pay for the ceilings?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:25:04 PM)
Only if you repaint them.

Trinity (Aug 7, 2008 12:25:33 PM)
Can you suduce the landlord?

MaxoidScott (Aug 7, 2008 12:25:33 PM)
You bet!

Demonica (Aug 7, 2008 12:25:38 PM)
So how can i get rid of them parasite-like Roommates?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:25:38 PM)
not all roommates are like parasites (though some might be). But you can always kick your roommates to the curb if you’re fed up with them.

DaveJB1994 (Aug 7, 2008 12:25:56 PM)
Can you visit other sims apartments?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:25:56 PM)
Yes you can. In AL, you can visit the neighbors in your apartment building.

Jerms (Aug 7, 2008 12:26:40 PM)
When does it come out in stores?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:26:40 PM)
It will be in stores on August 28th.

Ant (Aug 7, 2008 12:26:59 PM)
Is there any way you can reduce your rent?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:26:59 PM)
There are opportunities to reduce rent if you are of good reputation and make the right connetions.

Guest (Aug 7, 2008 12:27:38 PM)
Can you visit neighbors in your apartment building?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:27:38 PM)
Yup. You can visit neighbors in your building.

Cam (Aug 7, 2008 12:27:59 PM)
Is the statue in the new hood of Bella Goth?

MaxoidScott (Aug 7, 2008 12:27:59 PM)
It certainly does look like her, doesn’t it?

Oridgeo6997 (Aug 7, 2008 12:28:00 PM)
Can landlords be female?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:28:00 PM)
Landlords can be both female and male.

Guest (Aug 7, 2008 12:28:12 PM)
can we have balconies?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:28:12 PM)
Apartments can be built with balconies as long as they don’t lead to anywhere else.

nicnac (Aug 7, 2008 12:28:30 PM)
can roomates kick you out

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:28:30 PM)
No way! You signed the lease, so it’s your place and the roommate can’t kick you out

SilverChains14 (Aug 7, 2008 12:28:37 PM)
Is it possible to fly on brooms?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:28:37 PM)
Witches do fly on brooms.

Guest (Aug 7, 2008 12:29:08 PM)
Can you own a penthouse?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:29:08 PM)
You can rent a penthouse much like every other kind of apartment.

Panda (Aug 7, 2008 12:29:35 PM)
will there be a cheat to be able to control your roomates just like pets?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:29:35 PM)
Don’t tell anyone, but you can use the same cheat you use for pets to control your roommates.

Faris (Aug 7, 2008 12:29:52 PM)
Does the heart shaped bed do anything special?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:29:52 PM)
Apart from bringing your Sims joy, they vibrate and light up.

fishigrl (Aug 7, 2008 12:30:22 PM)
Can witches « fly » to other lots or is it like the vampire bat thing?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:30:22 PM)
Witches will get on their brooms and fly off the lot – it’s really cool!

Twiggers849 (Aug 7, 2008 12:31:00 PM)
can rent vary depending on the size and quantity of the ‘apartment’?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:31:00 PM)
The rent of an aprtment building is based on the size and the fixture/appliances that come with it.

*Bobbie.. (Aug 7, 2008 12:31:55 PM)
if your sim mooves out of their apartment, does there roommate stay there or come with them?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:31:55 PM)
If you move out , your roommate won’t come with you. They will go look for another place.

cjman (Aug 7, 2008 12:31:58 PM)
what is your favourite thing a witch can do? a favoutrite spell?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:31:58 PM)
I love that Witches can teleport! It’s the best way to get around an apartment. One of my favorite spells freezes time.

Thyrcmng827 (Aug 7, 2008 12:32:11 PM)
Are the apartments single rooms only, like the Dorms in Unversity? Or can we make them with multiple rooms…

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:32:11 PM)
You can make your apartment as big as you like, with as many rooms and floors as you like.

ChatMaster (Aug 7, 2008 12:32:19 PM)
The chat ends in 10 minutes! Make sure to ask all your best questions before you go.

Nicira (Aug 7, 2008 12:33:04 PM)
Can all sims become witches?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:33:04 PM)
Your sims have the option of becoming a witch. It is completely under your control.

Mariah4110 (Aug 7, 2008 12:33:42 PM)
Can we build apartments without using the lot zoning cheat?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:33:42 PM)
For apartments to be functional, you will have to use the lotzoning cheat.

sims2chelsea (Aug 7, 2008 12:34:06 PM)
Can you replace the furnishings of the apartment with better ones? Like the fridge, stove, toilets, etc.?

Once you’ve rented an apartment, you can change whatever objects you like inside it.

redefined (Aug 7, 2008 12:34:48 PM)
can we view the apartments before we buy them with a real estate, just like in real-life?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:34:48 PM)
You can do this in two ways. Enter the apartment from the neighborhood view without moving a sim in. This affords you the opportunity of changing it. OR you can move a family on an apartment lot and check it out prior to renting

Is witch a turn on/turn off?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:35:55 PM)
Yes there is a witch related turn on / off.

Krizz (Aug 7, 2008 12:36:06 PM)
Well, guys good job! How did you come on this great idea?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:36:06 PM)
From you guys. 🙂 The fans have been asking us to make apartments for awhile.

JaimePG (Aug 7, 2008 12:36:23 PM)
all the apartaments have the same prize??

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:36:24 PM)
No way…you can’t rent a mobile home and a penthouse for the same price 🙂

does the broom work like a car?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:36:32 PM)
Witches ride their brooms instead of walking. They can ride their broom to community lots, work and school.

drwsarah (Aug 7, 2008 12:36:40 PM)
Can you change the wallpaper and flooring in your apartment?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:36:40 PM)
YES. We want your Sims to feel at home.

SirenPrincess (Aug 7, 2008 12:37:20 PM)
How does the social reputation system work?

MaxoidAlan (Aug 7, 2008 12:37:20 PM)
Your reputation can go up or down depending on what kinds of socials you perform on the townies. The higher the reputation you have the more chances you can gain certain benefits. But if you have a lower reputation you will have the world hating you.

KCKfish11 (Aug 7, 2008 12:37:41 PM)
What is the ages your sims can turn into witches?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:37:41 PM)
Witches are teen through elder.

Can your spells backfire and cause some funny outcomes?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:38:21 PM)
Some of them can. When you’re not too good at Magivestigium (teleportation) yet, you can sometimes end up high in the sky with nowhere to go but down. 🙂

justbrie (Aug 7, 2008 12:39:23 PM)
When you move out of an apartment can you take everything(furniture, decorations, etc.)with you?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:39:23 PM)
When you move out of apartments, you will get reimbursed financially for all the objects you leave behind.

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:39:45 PM)
Yup…just like floors!

SuperSillySim (Aug 7, 2008 12:39:48 PM)
How does the newspaper get delivered?

MaxoidScott (Aug 7, 2008 12:39:49 PM)
The paper person will deliver it right to your apartment door.

Joey132465 (Aug 7, 2008 12:40:17 PM)
Can you have a Vampire/Zombie/Plantsim/Werewolf/Witch?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:40:17 PM)
Yes. For example you can have a Vampire Witch.

Katie (Aug 7, 2008 12:40:37 PM)
can you turn the ceilings off

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:40:37 PM)
Yes. There is a toggle but on the Hub in the lower left corner.

Brd709 (Aug 7, 2008 12:40:46 PM)
Do NPC Neighbours bring their own furniture?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:40:46 PM)
NPC neighbors will have fully furnished apartments (if you build your apartment building for them, you can look at ours for examples).

Guest (Aug 7, 2008 12:40:48 PM)
is there a new secret haunted witch location?

MaxoidAlan (Aug 7, 2008 12:40:48 PM)
Yes, there are new secret lots.

aimeexlauren (Aug 7, 2008 12:42:02 PM)
will elevatros be made avaliable or will we have to get open for buissness?

MaxoidLakshmi (Aug 7, 2008 12:42:02 PM)
There is a new elevator in Apartment Life.

gianttacosalad (Aug 7, 2008 12:42:26 PM)
Are there more actions between parent and children?

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:42:26 PM)
Yes. For example parents can read their children to sleep and swing children around by the arms.

Krizz (Aug 7, 2008 12:42:30 PM)
Are you proud about the results?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:42:30 PM)
I think I speak for all of us when I say that we’re very proud of this pack. We are giving the community two things they have been asking for for a long time: apartments and witches. I’m sure you guys will have a great time with this pack and really enjoy all the cool stuff there is to find in Apartment Life

does rent auto-matically get paid or do we have to pay it like bills?

MaxoidScott (Aug 7, 2008 12:42:50 PM)
It’s more like bill paying – you’ll have to remember to pay the rent, but you’ll get reminders when it’s due.

rissa39 (Aug 7, 2008 12:42:54 PM)
Is the secret door something that can be easily gotten from the build/buy mode, or does it need to be unlocked?

MaxoidShannon (Aug 7, 2008 12:42:54 PM)
You can find it in the Buy Mode Catalog.

Timoth26 (Aug 7, 2008 12:43:10 PM)

Yes, witches can go to college.

Can a robot become a witch?

MaxoidJerome (Aug 7, 2008 12:43:35 PM)
Servo can become a witch. S/he looks great with that hat on 🙂

MaxoidBim (Aug 7, 2008 12:44:21 PM)
Thanks for all the great questions! Bye! 🙂

MaxoidScott (Aug 7, 2008 12:44:27 PM)
Thanks for playing the Sims 2! Without you, I would be a shell of a man. Instead, I lead a happy life making fun games for all of you.
