Hey guys recently i had the opportunity to interview a SimGuru on the upcoming Expansion pack Sims 4:Get to work! I Had the pleasure of interviewing SimGuruDave a Producer On Get to work! Check out the full interview below, With lots of new information including Babies, Illnesses, Group shots and more! Before I get into things I would like to thank SimGuruBChick and SimguruDave for giving me the opportunity to interview them! 🙂
Q: With the introduction of Hospitals we see Illnesses make a return, Can our Sims catch these diseases?
A: Sims don’t have to be working in the Doctor career to see illness symptoms. Any Sim can catch an illness; mainly, this is done through physical interactions with other Sims. You will be able to see if your Sim is ill by different buffs they get and by how they look in the game.
Q: Sims can now Deliver Babies, Does this mean Sims around Town will Start having children?
A: As Sims progress through the Doctor career, they will unlock the ability to see pregnant patients and deliver their babies. The Hospital does spawn NPC pregnant Sims as well, so you’ll see them walking around in the game. As a player, if your Sim is pregnant and ready to give birth, you’ll need to select the interaction to give birth at the Hospital.
Q:Can Sims visit the Hospital to see family And have checkups or do they have to work in the medical career?
A: Sims who are not in the Doctor career are not able to visit the Hospital. The only Sims who are able to go to the Hospital while not in the Doctor Sims are pregnant Sims (and their significant other) when they are ready to give birth. If your Sim gets sick, medicine can be ordered by phone or on the computer.
Q: When our Sims go into labor does an NPC Doctor deliver our baby?
A: Yep, when pregnant Sims go into labor, an NPC Doctor will deliver their baby.
Q: The chance to run businesses has returned and it looks great! Will our Sims be Able to run Home Businesses?
A: Retail lots in The Sims 4 Get to Work dictate where Sims can open up a business. Sims can stay at their store and take care of their basic needs as long as they desire but will need to return home for much of the gameplay that’s centered on their household.
Q: With the return of Bakeries can our Sims also Run Restaurants?
A: TheSims 4 Get to Work focuses on opening up a retail business where you can sell anything you can make in the game, from toilet paper to cupcakes. The focus is on selling items, rather than providing services.
Q: Can we sell ANY item?
A: Your Sims can sell anything they can make, as well as a vast majority of the items available in buy mode. Sims who paint on the easel can sell their works of art. Sims who desire to open up a store that only sells furniture, can do so.
Q: Can we set Employee Uniforms?
A: Absolutely! This is one of my favorite aspects of the retail side of Get to Work.
Q: Will Sims pay for items at the register or do they just take the item?
A: Sims won’t just take the item, no – they’ll be assisted by an employee to purchase items.
Q: How do Mannequins work?
A: You can customize outfits from the clothing in-game and dress up both adult and child mannequins. They can have up to 30 unique outfits assigned to them that customers can try on and purchase.
Q: Will this Pack be introducing any new collectibles?
A: Yes! There are new rocks, flora, and fauna to collect, and they’re out of this world!
Q: In the trailers we see new areas in which are the Hospital and Police department, is this a new world or are Willow creek and Oasis springs having an expansion?
A: Rather than taking your Sims to a new world, The Sims 4 Get to Work integrates new environments into the existing worlds in The Sims 4. The Sims 4 Get to Work also includes an entirely new neighborhood, Magnolia Promenade, which is made up of four new lots, three of which are retail. You can create retail lots in the existing neighborhoods or move existing venues into the new neighborhood. It’s all up to you! You can even live right next door to your retail store.
Q: What can you tell us that we don’t already know about Get to work yet?
A: We’re really excited about the new photography skill in The Sims 4 Get to Work. We’re introducing cool new filters and other modern features such as a Smart Phone camera, the ability to choose between horizontal or vertical shots, a photography studio object to take group shots, and more!
