Here’s a special peek from designer Alan Copeland talking about the Hot Air Balloon, available in The Sims 3 Aurora Skies. Make sure to pick up Aurora Skies on February 21, 2013 from the Sims 3 Store!
When we first started talking about what items that would fit well in Aurora Skies, I wanted a big impact item that would really speaks to the romantic aspects of the world. I mean, doesn’t Aurora Skies look like to perfect place to take a date? What could be better than sharing drinks with that special someone while watching the sunset transition into the northern lights? Or proposing in the mist of one of the most spectacular waterfalls the Sims has ever seen? I know… doing all of that while floating above the earth in your Sims very on Hot Air Balloon!
Even if you’re Sim is alone, or stuck in the friend zone, there’s fun to be had going up to do a little sightseeing. While you can certainly find some “Glorious Views” (new moodlet!) watch out, because some things can’t be unseen! And who doesn’t want to arrive at work in a Hot Air Balloon? From Map View you can pick your favorite location to fly too and the Hot Air Balloon will whisk you away to your destination!
