One powerful feature that makes The Sims Mobile stand out from its PC counterpart is relationship stories. These stories allow for a greater variety of relationships between Sims, making each one unique. No longer are relationships just an endless cycle of joke, chat, chat, kiss, woohoo, propose. Each relationship in The Sims Mobile has its own story to tell.
But what are relationship stories exactly and how do they work?
When you meet a new Sim and spend a short amount of time socialising with them, you’ll be able to start one of three events; you can choose to start a friendship event, a date event, or a rival event. If you don’t see the kind of event you want in the social menu, select More Options, then select the appropriate category. The date event is in the flirty category, the friendship event is in the friendly category, and the rival event is in the rival category.
The initial event is short and easy to finish using your Sim’s energy. After the event is completed, you’ll be able to choose from a number of relationship stories to tell. Completing the date event will let you pick between several romance stories. Completing the friendship event will let you pick between several friendship stories. Completing the rival event will let you pick between several rival stories. Don’t worry too much about the long-term complications of picking the wrong type of story. You don’t have to be in a romance story with a Sim to marry them and you’re not locked into marrying a Sim you’re in a romance story with.
When you’ve selected the story you want to tell, a dialogue sequence will play for the first chapter of that story. Continue building the relationship to open up new story events and play through new story chapters.
You can check your story progress at any time by going into your Sim’s info panel. Tap the question mark icon on that story to get a quick summary from your Sim about where you are in that story.
Finishing stories isn’t just fun; it’s rewarding, too. Completing story chapters unlocks new items for your Sims.
