The Sims 2 Open for Business Cover

The Sims 2: Open for Business, or OFB, is the third expansion pack for The Sims 2, released on March 2, 2006 in the US, and on March 3, 2006 in Europe. The Mac version was released on September 4, 2006. It allows Sims to run a home or community lot based business.

The main change to the core game introduced by Open for Business is a new neighborhood type—the "Shopping District", the default one being named Bluewater Village. A number of Sims live there, such as a toymaking family, a woman who owns a home-based flower shop, a family that owns a furniture shop, a family bakery, and a rich tycoon who owns a nightclub and an electronics shop.

Open for Business also adds new functionality to a Sim's productivity around the house. Sims are able to craft new items, including toys, flowers, and robots. Additional items include those aimed specifically at enhancing the business setting like an old-style cash register, beauty salon chairs and child-oriented toys. Servos are reintroduced as fully playable household robots that can perform basic tasks and function like a Sim in regards to social interactions.

There are new objects in Open for Business. Furniture styles and the build-mode selection have been expanded. The biggest difference, however, is the addition of business-oriented items such as cash-registers, shelves, elevators, and crafting centers that Sims can use to create things to sell.
