Welcome mysterious visitors: New weather patterns aren’t the only things appearing in the sky! Befriend an alien visitor and use their UFO to abduct a neighbor, invade a community lot, or travel to the stars.
The Sims 3 Seasons is the most anticipated Expansion Pack of all time. Ever since The Sims 3 got released, fans were asking on forums: ”When will we get a chance to play with seasons?”. The Sims Team was listening to you (and still is), simmers this whole time and granted you this wish. Seasons was released on 15th of November 2012 in USA and on 17th of November in Europe.
The Loading Screen is very colorful. It shows all 4 aspects of Seasons in a cute way.
You all might be dissapointed but there is no new world that you get along with Seasons. The reason is because the team had 2 choices: Either to make a single world where seasons will only occour there or to expand weather to every world we had from previous Expansion Packs or Store Worlds. You still have Sunset Valley and that’s an awesome world because it fits for all 4 seasons. I can’t say that for Sunlit Tides, but it’s still possible to add winter to a tropical paradise themed world!
There are pre-made festival lots for Sunset Valley, Twinbrook, Bridgeport, Appaloosa Plains, Starlight Shores, Moonlight Falls, University Town, Riverview, Barnacle Bay, Hidden Springs, Lunar Lakes, Sunlit Tides and Lucky palms. All newer store worlds require downloading from The Sims 3 Exchange. Here they are:
Monte Vista Festival Lot: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=6715249
Aurora Skies Festival Lot: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=7022551
Dragon Valley Festival Lot: http://www.thesims3.com/assetDetail.html?assetId=7344881
You must replace original lots with Festival Lots/Grounds in order to have Festivals in your world!
There are several options that allow you to customize the climate of your World. They are simple to use and they will only apply to a save game you are currently changing the settings on.
Competitive Eater (5,000 Lifetime Points) – The bottomless pit in your Sim’s stomach will help you gain an advantage over others in eating contest. Competitive Eaters will never feel nauseous or stuffed in these contests.
Festival Frequenter (5,000 Lifetime Points) – Festival Frequenters know how to get more out of festivals. Your Sim will be able to earn more festival tickets and receive discounts on concession stands, face painting booths, and kissing booths.

Immune to Cold (10,000 Lifetime Points) – Sims immune to the cold will always stay pleasantly warm.
The Cloud-Inator 3000 (30,000 Lifetime Points) – The Cloud Ray gives you nothing less than command of the weather (albeit in an extremely localized fashion). It’s easy to operate: just point, shoot, and laugh in the face of nature.
The Cloud-Inator 3000 allows you to pull a prank on other Sims by releasing a Cloud of Snow/Rain on the top of their Heads!
Climatron Control Unit (40,000 Lifetime Points) – It’s the dream of any self-respecting mad scientist: a machine that controls the weather. Whether you want to use it to destroy the world’s crops or make the weatherman look dumb, this Climatron Control Unit is the answer.
Climatron Control Unit can control the Weather in your Town. You have 5 takes to Create Rain, Snow, Hail, Fog or just a Sunny day.

Fall is visually beautiful as the trees are full of varied colours. The leaves from the tress gradually fall off and build up over time giving a realistic feel to the game. The weather is generally colder and comes in all varieties from fog, clear, sun and rain. Fall has a special holiday to go with it’s Season, Spooky Day. Along with Fall comes a newly Seasoned festival with plenty of things to get up to!
Fall is the Season for unpredictable weather. Be sure to check the weather station, newspaper or a computer!
One minute it can be clear, the next rain and plenty of it.
Throughout every Season comes a different themed festival.
Hungry? Enter the pie eating contest! The more hungry a Sim is gives an advantage on winning. After the contest is on Sims occasionally tend to feel nauseous after stuffing their faces with pie. The winning Sim gets 25 tickets for winning while the losing Sims get 5 tickets as a consolation.
Apple bobbing is fun game to play, the Sim who collects 5 apples first wins! 25 tickets is rewarded to the winner and 5 to the Sim(s) who lost.
A Sim of the cild to Elder age can join in the fun of the pie eating contest.
BOO! Get the old heart pumping bu going in to the haunted house! Sims can brave this house as many times as they like. Be careful though, Sims can be scared to death (literally, only for a temporary time though.)
Face painting is not a thing to be enjoyed by children but Sims of all ages! A face paint will cost of Sim 50 Simoleons. There are a few styles to choose from including a pirate, turkey, unicorn and a pumpkin. Plus more!
Time to redeem those festival tickets Sims have earned through the festival games over the year. Tickets are a big part of the festivals and the more tickets earned, the better the prize. Taking part in any activity helps a Sim build up their tickets. Win or lose, Sims will still get tickets. 25 tickets for every time there is a win and 5 for every time there is a loss.
When redeeming tickets there is a variety of different objects where tickets will be traded in for. Sims can get their very own apple bobbing tank for their homes! Other items a Sim can purchase with festival tickets include a scarecrow, snow cone machine, face painting booth, sun tanning booth, parasol, umbrella, horseshoe court, soccer goal. Plus a few more!
Sims can get hungry while they are at the festival so they are able to purchase food while they are there. Some of the foods here are new, and tasty! Available foods and drinks Sims can buy is a Cinnamon Donut, Coffee, French Fries, Fruit Punch, Hamburger, Hot Chocolate, Hot Cider, Hot Dogs, Ice Cream, Soda, Pie, Tofu Dog and Sweet Potato Fries.
The following foods require EPs; Fudge Popsicle (Pets) Nachos (Late Night) Hot Wings (Late Night) and Onion Wings (Late Night.)
Greeting Cards are a big thing at each Seasonal festival. Sims can capture the moment of each festival all year round. Up to 8 Sims can enter the greeting card booth at a time. When the card is taken it will automatically go to a Sims inventory for safe keeping. Sims can hang up their greeting card on the wall at home or on the shelf.
Another great thing with greeting cards is that they can be shared via thesims3.com so friends can view them. They can also be shared on to Facebook and Twitter too!
Towards the end of every Season Sims can throw a party aimed at that particular Season. Friends and family join together to have fun and create memories. Sims will get invitations to go to parties if Late Night is installed. On Spooky Day Sims get to dress up in various costumes to either party in or go Trick or Treating!
Trick or Treating is a fun way to get free stuff. There will be many Trick or Treaters around town so Sims best be ready to dish out some candy!
Fall wouldn’t be complete without carving pumpkins! Pumpkins can be an enjoyment to Sims, also a frustration if they don’t look as the Sim intended them to. There a up to 5 different ways to carve out a pumpkin which include traditional, ghost, cat, silly and evil.
Winter is another visually stunning Season as everything is covered in crisp white snow. Snow makes worlds turn in to a winter wonderland. Icicles appear on Sims homes, lakes freeze over and the temperature of the weather drastically drops! Sims must bundle up in their outerwear if they want to tackle the outside world in this weather, or else they make freeze!
Apart from the ice cold temperatures, there is also benefits to this Season. If a Sim has the ‘loves the cold’ trait then this will be the time of the year for them. Other benefits to Winter is that the snow might be quite thick which leads to a day off school, so that’ll be great news to the kids!
There are three types of snow during the Winter Season. There is light, moderate and heavy.
The Winter festival has come in to town! Time to get out there and have some fun.
With the Winter festival comes an area that is specifically themed towards the Season.
There is an ice skating rink that Sims can spend hours on. The more time a Sim is on the ice skating rink, the better that get at it. They will show off their skills to the other, less skillfull, Sims.
Skating on the ice skating rink isn’t the only way Sims can skate on ice. Ponds and lakes will freeze over. Sims can practice their skills that way if they want to. With skating on ice Sims can gain the hidden skating skill.
Snowboarding is a must in Winter. The festival comes with a half-pipe where Sims are able to snowboard. The more time Sims spend snowboarding, the closer they are to gaining the hidden snowboarding skill! The hidden skill will let Sims perform better moves and amazing tricks.
Snow is on the ground, do you leave it alone? Of course not. Time to build a snowman! A Sim can either make a snowman on their own or ask their friends or family members to help them build it. Child to elder Sims can have fun in building snowmen.
There isn’t just one type of snowman to build, there are six in total. Sims with certain type of skills have more advantage of learning how to build a certain type of snowman.
Classic Snowman: Every Sim can build this snowman.
Evil Snowman: Sims with ‘evil’, ‘mean-spirited’, ‘pyromaniac’ (hidden trait) or daredevil trait.
Grim Reaper Snowman: Sims with ‘evil’, ‘unlucky’ trait or having a job at the Mausoleum .
Hockey Snowman: ‘Sims with ‘loves the outdoors’ or ‘athletic’ trait or having an ice skating rink on the lot.
Clown Snowman: Sims with ‘grumpy’ or ‘hates the outdoors’ traits and Sims who are in a bad mood.
Alien Snowman: Sims with ‘computer whiz’ or ‘insane’ trait and Aliens are able to make them also.
Those snow angels aren’t going to make themselves!
Sims can get down on the floor in the freezing cold snow and make some fun snow angels.
If a Sim wants to, they can destroy another Sims snow angels, leaving the Sim who created it upset.
“Absent-minded” “clumsy” and “insane” Sims tend to fall flat on their face whilst trying to create a snow angel. “Daredevil” Sims will more than likely strip down to their swimsuit and get in the snow. Brrrr!
Snowball fights are a great activity to be enjoyed by Sims. The more a Sim participates in snowball fighting, the more chance they are of winning the fight and discovering the hidden snowball skill.
Sims can build their very own igloos. Sims can either build the igloos by themselves or ask for a helping hand. When the masterpiece is created Sims can go inside them. They are able to chat to other inside, have a nap, relax or go to sleep! Another thing they can be used for is to woohoo.
After all those activities outside Sims can go and warm themselves up by drinking a lovely cup of hot chocolate.
This time, greeting cards are Winter themed! Grab some friends or family and pose for the camera. Of course, if a Sim just wants to take a greeting card by themselves then they can. Don’t forget to share those greeting cards on thesims3.com or on Facebook and/or Twitter.
Why not invite friends and family to join in the gift-giving party?
During the gift-giving party, guest will bring over food from their homes which is always fun, free food!
Time to sit down and enjoy that lovely roasted turkey. Sims can fill their faces with all that delicious food. Yum!
A gift-giving party is exactly as it says. Invite guests, the gifts will be put into one huge pile, join everyone together and start ripping them gifts open!
The actual gift-giving can be a lot of fun, for some Sims. As for others, they can get a little disappointed if they don’t get an amazing gift whilst another Sims has got a really great gift. Hey, it’s the thought that counts… Right?
Whilst the weather can be pretty cold, there can be a couple days of good weather. Not ever day will be forecast snow, there can be sun too. While the sun is out there will be changes to the world, snow will start to melt in places.
Ahh, Spring has arrived! The Season for love and for flowers to bloom.
With this Season come a lot more activities for your Sims – and plenty of rain!
So don’t let a little rain spoil the day, get outside and jump in those puddles!
With all Seasons, there is a holiday. For Spring, there is Love Day.
With this day Sims can show their spouse just how much they love each other.
On another note, Love Day increases Sims chances of getting lucky!
Everyone wants to share their love so Sims will tend to get more gifts and love letters throughout this Season.
Festivals are always fun for Sims of all ages to enjoy and plenty of activities to get in to.
The Love Tester Machine tells Sims if they will be able to find love or be forever alone.
The Sim can also bring another Sim along with them to see if they are destined to be together forever or if it’s time to escape!
Playing with the Horseshoe is also a fun game to play. Sims can compete against each other and also practice alone.
Rollerskating is great, if you don’t fall over! Sims can master skating in no time.
The hunt is on! Let’s go Egg Hunting! Throughout the Spring Season, Sims can go in search of eggs. Collecting eggs can be rewarding as they will get a prize!
Want a perfect way to have a kiss and not get rejected? Fantastic, now step right up to the Kissing Booth!
Bust those moves on the dance floor and Sims are in for a chance of becoming Spring King or Queen!
While Sims are dancing away, why not have a slow dance with that special someone. It’s romantic and perfect for those deeply in love.
