Le 16 août 2007 s'est déroulé un chat avec Lyndsay Pearson, Sam Player et Lakshmi Jayapalan :

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:25:27 PM) Welcome!

MaxisLakshmi (Aug 16, 2007 4:25:45 PM) Hello all :)

abattista (Aug 16, 2007 4:26:40 PM) When is the actuall release date of Sims 2 Bon Voyage? I've seen it range from the 4- the 7th.

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:26:40 PM) It depends on where you are and what store you buy it from., so it could be any one of those days. Check with your local retailer on when they get their shipment in.

bex (Aug 16, 2007 4:26:58 PM) Can you tell us a little about the personal camera? Will our Sims need to buy film, charge batteries, or get their pictures developed? Will it be similar to the Artist Track career reward from The Sims 2 University (aside from size)?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:26:58 PM) The new camera is very similar to the University camera. All Sims have one, there's no charging or film needed. the Snapshots will be added to your family photo album UI and you will be able to order individual prints or put your favorite 8 images into the album from your computer at home.

Kat (Aug 16, 2007 4:27:45 PM) We're heard discussions of a new game launcher. Will this mean that we will be required to be connected to the internet to play the game?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:27:45 PM) No, you will not be required to be hooked into the internet to play. But if you are connected you will be able to learn lots of new stuff about not only The Sims 2 but other games from the Sims Lable.

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:27:59 PM) That should have said Label. :)

skewedreality04 (Aug 16, 2007 4:28:16 PM) Can toddlers go on vacation too? Please please please say yes!!!

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:28:16 PM) Toddlers and Babies cannot go on vacation. There is nothing for them to do on the vacation lots and they are too young to travel.

ActinMissy21 (Aug 16, 2007 4:28:49 PM) Hi Maxis, will we be able to save our Sims on the vacation lots, like on owned commercial lots in OFB?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:28:50 PM) Your sims will be allowed to save on Hotels, Vacation Homes or campgrounds.

orcaqueen8 (Aug 16, 2007 4:28:54 PM) Will sims be able to get married while on vacation?

MaxisLakshmi (Aug 16, 2007 4:28:54 PM) We have actually added marriage on any community lot, including on vacation. :)

spider_pig (Aug 16, 2007 4:28:57 PM) Can sims get pregnant on vacation?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:28:57 PM) yes they can get pregnant on vacation. They will not have their baby until they return home, however.

rstingl (Aug 16, 2007 4:29:32 PM) will we be able to take are pets with us

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:29:32 PM) Pets stay home.

drew (Aug 16, 2007 4:29:53 PM) Can you go inside pirateships?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:29:54 PM) you can! there are secrets to be found in there...

shelbnumber1 (Aug 16, 2007 4:29:59 PM) Will the hotels work like dorms in uni?? or Will it be like sims1??

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:29:59 PM) Hotels are very similar to Dorms. You get first choice of rooms before other people arrive. As people check into the hotel with you their room will dissappear. You will be able to knock on doors like you did in University.

simsfanaholic (Aug 16, 2007 4:30:32 PM) Will the weather in seasons affect your vacation?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:30:32 PM) it will. All weather will occur in your vacation neighborhoods (assuming you have Seasons, of course)

Ant (Aug 16, 2007 4:30:46 PM) Since toddlers cannot go on vacation, if you have a family with them, can you hire a sitter to stay with them whilst the family is on vacation?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:30:46 PM) When you plan a vacation you will be given the choice to leave the toddler at home with an adult or elder of your choosing or you can decide to hire a nanny for the duration of the vacation.

aaronsims2 (Aug 16, 2007 4:30:54 PM) can you own more than one vacation home in different locations and can you build vacations homes yourself?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:30:54 PM) yes, yes, and yes on all counts

branflakes13 (Aug 16, 2007 4:31:19 PM) What are the different vacation themes?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:31:19 PM) You can vacation to Twikki Island (a tropical paradise) ; Takemizu Village (the Far East) or Three Lakes (a mountain town)

Guest (Aug 16, 2007 4:32:07 PM) Hello Maxis! Great work so far!, I would like to ask, What new NPCs are there in Bon Voyage? As you had werewolfs, zombies etc in the others so far, thanks!

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:32:07 PM) There are a bunch of new NPC's. Off the top of my head, I can think of tour guides, ninjas, Big Foot, Bell Hops, Wise Old Men, a witch doctor...a bunch of em

Greenfeet93 (Aug 16, 2007 4:32:15 PM) Can you modify vacation lots at all?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:32:15 PM) You can modify unowned vacation homes and community lots. When you own a vacation home you have to visit it to be able to modify it (like open for business). Hotels are like Dorms and can be redecorated but you have to use cheats to actually rebuild them.

xxxSpaceLlamaxxx (Aug 16, 2007 4:32:33 PM) Will Pagoda style roofs be part of build mode in BV?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:32:33 PM) Yes. You can use pagoda roofs and the new roof textures anywhere.

sims2playa (Aug 16, 2007 4:33:11 PM) will there be bugs like mosqutios when u go camping?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:33:11 PM) There aren't mosquitoes but you might run into some Bees if you aren't careful...

Truth Unleashed (Aug 16, 2007 4:33:57 PM) Can you live in a vacation home full-time? Can toddlers and pets go there?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:33:57 PM) Even if you own a vacation home you can still only vacation there. You cannot live in any of the vacation neighborhoods. Toddlers, Babies and Pets cannot go to vacation homes.

pepper1967p (Aug 16, 2007 4:34:00 PM) hello maxoids!!! you guys are amazing! I was just wondering if kids can learn the things that adults can, like how to teleoport and tai-chi? thanks a ton!:)

MaxisLakshmi (Aug 16, 2007 4:34:00 PM) Children can learn the local gestures and dances, Tai Chi and how to teleport. They can get immersed in the local culture just like their parents.

thedom98p (Aug 16, 2007 4:34:01 PM) Can you woo hoo in tents?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:34:01 PM) yup. woohoo away!

ChatMaster (Aug 16, 2007 4:34:18 PM) thats in tents!

Agee100 (Aug 16, 2007 4:35:05 PM) Are there any "cool" new items that go along with this pack, that would effect everyday Sim Life?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:35:05 PM) I'd say the Axe Throwing range should definitely be part of everyday Sim Life. Most of the new vacation objects will be available to use at home too :)

nth016 (Aug 16, 2007 4:35:27 PM) How will going on vacation effect your sims job?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:35:27 PM) You won't get fired for going on vacation, that's for sure. You could get a job benefit when you come home, if you have a good vacation!

AJ(dudenut42) (Aug 16, 2007 4:35:30 PM) Are there new places to woohoo?

MaxisLakshmi (Aug 16, 2007 4:35:30 PM) There sure are. Your Sims can now Woohoo in the tent, sauna and hammock.

JeremyTheSimmer (Aug 16, 2007 4:35:34 PM) Are there any new foods in Bon Voyage?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:35:34 PM) Each of the new food booths offers unique local foods! They look delicous!

Zstar (Aug 16, 2007 4:35:37 PM) What inspired bon voyage

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:35:37 PM) We like taking vacations. :)

Lance (Aug 16, 2007 4:35:39 PM) Can you fish on vacation

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:35:46 PM) You can fish with The Sims 2 Seasons

Lance (Aug 16, 2007 4:36:08 PM) Can your sims die on vacation?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:36:08 PM) They most certainly can. Who asked that? That's just mean...

Jill (Aug 16, 2007 4:36:16 PM) Can jewelry be worn by kids?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:36:16 PM) Yes! Kids and Toddlers can wear jewelry.

Smslvr4lf0313 (Aug 16, 2007 4:36:22 PM) can your sims tan?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:36:23 PM) They can! They can also burn. So don't stay out too long...

Lexy (Aug 16, 2007 4:36:38 PM) are there any new objects?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:36:38 PM) yes there are. Many. :P

VorenianTarian (Aug 16, 2007 4:36:53 PM) Have you noticed that all the vacation destinations have two words and start with T?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:36:53 PM) How fortuitous. We didn't plan that.

Aussiebushlou (Aug 16, 2007 4:37:15 PM) can it snow at the beach?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:37:15 PM) it can!

lookamor (Aug 16, 2007 4:37:39 PM) Will we meet other families at the hotel, or only singles?

MaxisLakshmi (Aug 16, 2007 4:37:39 PM) There are tourist families that will stay at the same hotel as your Sims.

naomi (Aug 16, 2007 4:37:42 PM) will the tent be able to be used in the back garden. say have asleepover in the tent

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:37:43 PM) yup. you can camp in your back yard at home if you like. fun for the whole family!

Tbolt21 (Aug 16, 2007 4:37:45 PM) WHat are the fees for the hotel

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:37:45 PM) Each hotel is different. The room price is based on the stuff in the hotel room and the size of the hotel room. Each hotel description has a little guide to how expensive it is to stay at it. It helps when planning your trip :)

EletroDJ (Aug 16, 2007 4:37:49 PM) Can sims live in a "beach lot"?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:37:49 PM) they can!

Guest (Aug 16, 2007 4:38:14 PM) Can we learn the ways of the ninja?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:38:14 PM) You can learn his ways if you can pass his worthiness quiz :)

Puma (Aug 16, 2007 4:38:42 PM) Can the vacation be a honeymoon? Like, an actual want for the sims and have a memory of the honeymoon?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:38:42 PM) yes, you can make your vacation a honeymoon!

mdzjlc (Aug 16, 2007 4:38:49 PM) How many people can stay in a room? The normal 8 or less? And can a family have more then one room?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:38:49 PM) You can reserve as many or as few rooms as you want. You can make 8 Sims share 1 room or get them each their own.

Guest (Aug 16, 2007 4:39:11 PM) can your sims have a tea seremonie at home??

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:39:11 PM) you can have tea at home. Just buy the tea table and place it in your house

Ahpro (Aug 16, 2007 4:39:21 PM) Can you have vacation objects like massage tables and tents on residential lots?

MaxisLakshmi (Aug 16, 2007 4:39:21 PM) Most of the objects are also home lot or home neighborhood placeable, they just might have different functionality when you're on vacation.

simgelf (Aug 16, 2007 4:39:58 PM) Can we put beach lots in our neighborhoods?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:39:58 PM) You can use one of the terrains we've provided that can accomodate beaches to build a neighborhood. Not all neighborhoods will accomodate beach lots.

aaron (Aug 16, 2007 4:40:35 PM) is this pack demanding for pcs?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:40:35 PM) Bon Voyage is no more demanding on your PC than any of the other EP's. But anytime you add another EP to your game, if you see slowdown, we recommend adding more RAM to your PC. There's a lot of data running at once with all of those EP's going at the same time. RAM will help that.

lovejoyriteia (Aug 16, 2007 4:40:39 PM) If a family invites friends on vacation, can we control *all* of the Sims?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:40:39 PM) No. Your non-family guests are selectable so you can see their wants and needs but you cannot directly control them.

Guest (Aug 16, 2007 4:41:18 PM) I heard jewlery is coming in Bon Voyage. Is this true?

MaxisLakshmi (Aug 16, 2007 4:41:18 PM) Yes it is! :)

ThomasRiordan (Aug 16, 2007 4:41:47 PM) If you have seasons will you be able to build a snowy vacation destination since one isn't included?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:41:47 PM) you can, but you need Seasons to get it to snow. you can also have snow in the neighborhoods we created.

AJ(dudenut42) (Aug 16, 2007 4:41:51 PM) Is it possible to make custom vacation neighborhoods?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:41:52 PM) Yes. You can make custom vacation neighborhoods but only the pre-made ones we provide will have the secret lots.

roon33 (Aug 16, 2007 4:42:00 PM) do sims take their whole wardrobe on vacation with them?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:42:00 PM) yup

CrimsonSky160 (Aug 16, 2007 4:42:25 PM) What is your favorite feature in Bon Voyage? :)

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:42:25 PM) I love taking tours! I like the chance cards and random outcomes :)

PascualínPezínLoín (Aug 16, 2007 4:42:43 PM) Se podra comprar casas en la isla

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:42:43 PM) Si

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:43:18 PM) can they woo hoo in a moat

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:43:48 PM) sorry

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:43:53 PM) couldn't resist.

Guest (Aug 16, 2007 4:44:19 PM) Does eating any of the new foods have a special effect on the Sims at all?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:44:20 PM) Eating new foods in each place can contribute to your Vacation Mementos. Sims unlock mementos on their travels and build up their "savvy traveler" status.

Greenfeet93 (Aug 16, 2007 4:45:06 PM) Maxoid Sam you are hilarious

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:45:06 PM) I beg to differ :p

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:45:18 PM) Little L is fired

Judithbenik.SP2 (Aug 16, 2007 4:45:31 PM) can they woo hoo in a sauna??

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:45:31 PM) can they woo hoo in the fauna?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:45:33 PM) There is not a boat object. You can take an off-lot boat tour or you can play in the Pirate Ship.

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:45:51 PM) yes, sauna woo hoo is possible

AJ(dudenut42) (Aug 16, 2007 4:46:00 PM) how do you cover up hamock woohoo?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:46:00 PM) try it and see!

ChatMaster (Aug 16, 2007 4:46:08 PM) Can they woo hoo in a car? Can they woo hoo from afar?

Guest (Aug 16, 2007 4:46:20 PM) What are some new wants?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:46:20 PM) Want to go on tour, Want to meet bigfoot, Want to buy jewelry... lots of vacation related activities to try out.

Seannelson11 (Aug 16, 2007 4:46:36 PM) What is your new favourite feature in this expansion pack and why?

MaxisLakshmi (Aug 16, 2007 4:46:36 PM) I like that I can get new things while on vacation. Learn about the culture, buy the local jewelry, train my sims with the local customs. And bring them all home to share and impress their friends.

Guest (Aug 16, 2007 4:47:09 PM) how long can u go on vacation for

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:47:09 PM) the longest is 7 days, but you can go on another right away if you can afford it

chapstik (Aug 16, 2007 4:47:50 PM) Why cant we run our own hotels in conjunction with Open for Business? Was it a techinal issue???

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:47:50 PM) We really wanted to support it but simply didn't have the time. We wanted to focus on the vacation experiences people identify with and enjoy and decided not to focus on the business aspect.

dbug (Aug 16, 2007 4:48:32 PM) What happens if you run out of money while on vaction? Will you automatically be sent home? Also, if you plan to stay on vacation for 7 days, but you decide that you want to go home sooner, can you leave anytime?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:48:32 PM) you will not get sent home automatically if you run out of cash, you'll actually get a bill when you get home. you can leave early if you like

Moodyone (Aug 16, 2007 4:49:14 PM) Do Sims age while on vacation?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:49:14 PM) they do not age, but they can die by other means. so it's not a total free pass... :)

simcrazy52 (Aug 16, 2007 4:49:50 PM) are there new games to play in the water now that sims can swim in the ocean

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:49:50 PM) Jewelry and Beaches were really challenging, but they turned out really well!

Faris sims (Aug 16, 2007 4:50:39 PM) Hi! does bigfoot have any special interactions?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:50:39 PM) Bigfoot has many fun things he can do. Although about 100 of you have asked if he can make Bigfoot babies with other Sims. That's kinda gross, and the answer to that is no. :)

simmer12345 (Aug 16, 2007 4:51:05 PM) are there many new vacation cloths ?/

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:51:05 PM) There are new clothes available that fit with vacation themes. You can go to the mountains and buy a lumberjack outfit for example. Or, head downtown and buy a hula skirt before heading to the tropics so you'll fit right in.

mdzjlc (Aug 16, 2007 4:51:13 PM) Can sims get tans and just not burned like in Seasons?

al243 (Aug 16, 2007 4:51:42 PM) can you invite npc's for vacation?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:51:42 PM) you can! you just can't control them. you can invite any friends of yours.

happybuni21 (Aug 16, 2007 4:51:51 PM) What can the sims do on the beach?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:51:51 PM) Sims can sunbathe, build sandcastles, look for seashells, and swim!

MaxisLakshmi (Aug 16, 2007 4:51:53 PM) When Sims sunbathe on the beach they can get suntanned or sunburnt.

Guest (Aug 16, 2007 4:51:58 PM) I bet the waves look beautiful at night:)

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:51:58 PM) they do!

Tace (Aug 16, 2007 4:52:13 PM) Can sims annoy the locals?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:52:13 PM) why would you want to be annoying?

simsfan95173 (Aug 16, 2007 4:52:40 PM) What kind of music is in Bon Voyage?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:52:40 PM) good music

rocknjack04 (Aug 16, 2007 4:52:52 PM) How could you bring a neigbour a gift?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:52:52 PM) We added the ability to Give Gifts as an interaction in Seasons and add it to Bon Voyage too. Your Sims will be able to give away anything that is in their inventory.

abcsim12 (Aug 16, 2007 4:53:54 PM) Can there be shark attacks?!

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:53:54 PM) duh duh....duh duh....duh do you type the theme from Jaws? No sharks. You guys are mean to your Sims!

MrsSmellymaus (Aug 16, 2007 4:53:56 PM) Do the Sims have the jewelry in their inventory and will it be possible to run a jewelry shop (with Open for Business)? Or are they exactly like glasses? Because I saw Sims buying necklaces. Will they be on the neck (body) right after they bought it?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:53:56 PM) JEwelry is more like Clothing. You can buy individual pieces from a Jewelry Rack. For a jewelry store with Open for Business you will just use jewelry racks. Jewelry will not appear in your Sim's inventory.

nolurk (Aug 16, 2007 4:54:20 PM) Will there be new terrains for players to use to create new neighborhoods or areas?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:54:20 PM) There will be new terrain files for you to build on.

Lytescary (Aug 16, 2007 4:54:52 PM) hw does th room service work? does a NPC bring it 2 ther room?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:54:52 PM) Sims can use the phone to call for room service. The bellhop will deliver the food to their room.

icmnfrsh (Aug 16, 2007 4:54:56 PM) What are the default seasons in each destination?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:54:56 PM) i actually don't remember, but the beach location has 2 summers and 2 springs, I think. But they're all changeable if you like

Guest (Aug 16, 2007 4:55:31 PM) what kinds of thing can be dug up

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:55:31 PM) Your Sims will be able to dig up rocks, dog bones, sculptures, secret maps, or (if they're lucky) a treasure chest!

mdsimkins (Aug 16, 2007 4:56:13 PM) will there be new furniture themes? like the tiki hut and gothic sets from earlier eps?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:56:13 PM) there are several new furniture themes, yes

inDie (Aug 16, 2007 4:56:15 PM) Can you explain "walking" between lots?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:56:15 PM) Walking between lots works just like the Taxi except you dont' have to call anyone. YOu can click on your Sim and choose "Walk to...". You get the dialog you normally get with the taxi to choose where you want to go, then choose who you are taking with you, then you can just walk off the lot!

Grimm (Aug 16, 2007 4:56:24 PM) Whats in the treasure chest?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:56:24 PM) Treasure!

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:56:32 PM) It's worth lots of simoleons

orcaqueen8 (Aug 16, 2007 4:56:57 PM) Can more than one family vacation at a time?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:56:57 PM) Yes, but not to the same place.

Guest (Aug 16, 2007 4:57:06 PM) how long does tours last?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:57:06 PM) tours last about 2-3 Sim hours

iluvjackspw (Aug 16, 2007 4:57:48 PM) Where do the secret maps lead to?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:57:48 PM) Secret Maps lead to Secret Lots. You can discover 3 different secret lots, 1 per neighborhood.

akookykoala (Aug 16, 2007 4:58:01 PM) exactly how do you check into a hotel?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:58:01 PM) once you get to the hotel, click on the door of the room you want to stay in. Once you've done that, click on the bell hop to check in. Piece of cake.

Zstar (Aug 16, 2007 4:58:17 PM) can you walk through the whole neighborhood or is there a limit

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:58:17 PM) You will be able to walk to other community lots or hotels. You cannot walk to vacation homes.

mliss (Aug 16, 2007 4:58:33 PM) Any pirate outfits for our sims?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:58:33 PM) Dar!

gary0345 (Aug 16, 2007 4:59:01 PM) What's the maximum amount of time your sims can stay on vacation? And do they have to have permission from work?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:59:01 PM) The longest vacation is 7 days. You don't actually lose any real time on vacation so you don't have to have permission from work.

rauldn (Aug 16, 2007 4:59:31 PM) How long will the Big Foot live?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:59:31 PM) Bigfoot never dies. Because he is Bigfoot. He also never wears shoes...

mhavril39 (Aug 16, 2007 4:59:50 PM) Are there new animals? I think I saw starfish.

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 4:59:50 PM) There is a starfish you can find on the beach but it's not alive. The only new wildlife are the bees and cranky crab you might run into while searching for seashells.

ChatMaster (Aug 16, 2007 4:59:54 PM) There are 10 minutes left in the chat! Make sure to ask all of your important questions soon.

Chris (Aug 16, 2007 4:59:55 PM) does the treasuer chest give more simloeans than the bag of money from seasons?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 4:59:55 PM) maybe. go dig one up to find out!

pepper1967p (Aug 16, 2007 5:00:57 PM) what type of EVIL stuff can you do with the Voo doo dolls!? :P

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:00:57 PM) again, you guys are so mean to your Sims! Can't we all just get along? Well, if you must know, you can do all kinds of things to other Sims using the voodoo doll. You're just going to have to try it to find out. But beware. If your heart is not pure, bad things could happen to you...

Rubey (Aug 16, 2007 5:01:11 PM) Can we upload holiday homes as we would a house in any of the other neighbourhoods or sub-neighbourhoods?

MaxisLakshmi (Aug 16, 2007 5:01:11 PM) Any home can be a vacation home, they just have to be in a vacation neightborhood.

Twinkleberry (Aug 16, 2007 5:01:30 PM) can you kill Bigfoot? if you can, how?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:01:30 PM) wow. be nice to Bigfoot. He's a good guy! He'll take care of your kids if you want! Don't judge Bigfoot!

DonOfUK (Aug 16, 2007 5:01:33 PM) What clothes can Bigfoot wear

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 5:01:39 PM) Bigfoot has a very dapper vest and top hat

mdzjlc (Aug 16, 2007 5:02:00 PM) So when you come back from vacation its as if you never left? Like community lots?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:02:00 PM) that's exactly the way it works. it's magic.

Truth Unleashed (Aug 16, 2007 5:02:37 PM) Ummmm . . . why would a pure-hearted Sim use a voodoo doll?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:02:37 PM) taking me a bit too literally there....

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 5:02:51 PM) If you use your voodoo doll too much it will backfire on you.

Squirrel7284 (Aug 16, 2007 5:03:07 PM) Can sims drown in the ocean?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 5:03:08 PM) Sims can drown in the ocean. It's very sad.

Shannon (Aug 16, 2007 5:03:17 PM) Is big foot a good dance?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:03:17 PM) he's a tremendous dancer. Check out his Slap Dance!

AZSimmer (Aug 16, 2007 5:03:26 PM) can you make the beach at a residental home?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 5:03:27 PM) Yes you can. You'll have to use a neighborhood terrain that supports beach lots but it can be done.

abcsim12 (Aug 16, 2007 5:03:45 PM) Do seasons change while on vacation?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 5:03:45 PM) If you have Seasons, yes. You will see the seasons change.

ewise3 (Aug 16, 2007 5:04:14 PM) can our sims marry locals?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:04:14 PM) they sure can

ChatMaster (Aug 16, 2007 5:05:04 PM) There are 5 minutes left in the chat, so ask away before it's too late!

Mvgamer770 (Aug 16, 2007 5:05:08 PM) What’s your favorite hotel?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:05:08 PM) I think the Westin Heavenly Bed is the bomb...oh, you mean in the game? I like all the hotels on Twikii Island

Mvgamer770 (Aug 16, 2007 5:05:13 PM) How do beach towels benefit sims and where can they get them?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 5:05:13 PM) You will only get beach towels when sunbathing.

Grysl993 (Aug 16, 2007 5:06:03 PM) can the starfish be brought home as a decoration?

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 5:06:03 PM) Yes, the other shells you find on the beach or souvenirs you buy come home as decorative items too. There's even a new collection shelf you can use to display your fancy new things.

sonic (Aug 16, 2007 5:06:13 PM) are there food kiosks at the beach?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:06:13 PM) yep.

natalieeey (Aug 16, 2007 5:06:18 PM) Can Sims in University go on Vacation?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:06:18 PM) yep

Josh1111 (Aug 16, 2007 5:07:21 PM) Can you live on the vacation resorts?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:07:21 PM) you can't live on a vacation neighborhood, but you can visit there as often as you like.

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 5:07:51 PM) Secret lots are exclusive to vacation destinations. You can still place your own hotels, vacation homes and community lots into custom destinations to enjoy your own vacation neighborhood. Things like NPCs, special foods and stuff will apppear in your custom neighborhoods based upon which destination "theme" you've picked.

Squirrel7284 (Aug 16, 2007 5:08:34 PM) How much does an average vacation cost?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:08:34 PM) about 22 squirrels

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:09:22 PM) seriously, it depends on when you book it, and the size of the room. there's lots of choices. Maybe 500 simoleans a day for a hotel room is the average? that's totally off the top of my head

icmnfrsh (Aug 16, 2007 5:09:48 PM) Can you charge people to use the massage table with OFB?

MaxoidSam (Aug 16, 2007 5:09:48 PM) yup. you can build yourself a sweet massage parlor if you like

Kendurr (Aug 16, 2007 5:09:57 PM) Can you avoid paying for your hotel?

MaxisLakshmi (Aug 16, 2007 5:09:57 PM) No, your bills will catch up with you at home...

MaxoidLittleL (Aug 16, 2007 5:10:33 PM) Squirrels are not real monetary collateral. Sam is just being weird.

ChatMaster (Aug 16, 2007 5:10:57 PM) The chat is now ending, thanks everyone for coming!
