4.       New Objects and Interaction Rewards:  Sims will be rewarded with special objects and unlock interactions unique to the career of their choice as they level up. Will your Sim give fake investment tips or offer to “pump up” a fellow Sim?

5.       New Career Reward Rooms: As your Sim moves through their career, they will unlock career reward rooms found in Build Mode to help you create the ultimate in Athletic or Business home décor.

6.       New Gallery Updates: We’ve added some new gallery updates like advanced and modded filters. To take a peek at all that is included with this month’s game update, read our patch notes here.

7.       Strictly Business Gnome:  While other gnomes laze around your garden or relax poolside, the Strictly Business Gnome has no time for that. With briefcase in hand, he’s got places to go, calls to make, meetings to attend.

8.       Move Objects Cheat: Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, this update also includes the Move Objects Cheat! The Move Objects Cheat allows players to create unique objects by combining two or more items. For example, a player can combine a bed and curtains to create a canopy bed. You can use the cheat with any object. Or you could just make a really cluttered room!

To activate the cheat:

1.       Type Ctrl-Shift-C to bring up the game’s console.

2.       Enter “testingcheats true”

3.       Enter “bb.moveobjects”

4.       Enter “Ctrl-Shift-C” to close the dialog box

5.       To turn off the cheat, repeat steps 1-4.

·         Note, once the cheat is off, you can’t move the affected objects. If you do, the “moveobject” ability will be lost.

9.       Holiday Sweaters: It wouldn’t be a holiday update without sweaters! Fans voted for Sweater #4 and we managed to sneak in a couple more, so your Sims can celebrate in style.

10.     Holiday Décor: The holiday cheer doesn’t end there! The Holiday Celebration Pack will have festive décor and offer other interesting twists to your Sim’s wardrobe. For more info in how to download this fabulous free festive pack, see below.

SimCity (2013): New Game Update (V10.3)

After a long period of silence, Maxis have released a new update for SimCity (2013). This new update allows you to move your multiplayer cities to offline mode.

Update 10.3 is available now. This update adds the ability to transfer your Regions and Cities from the game servers to Single-Player for Offline play. To get the update simply restart SimCity.

How to transfer your Cities to Single-Player

    • Launch SimCity and connect to the game server
    • On the Main Menu select the PLAY tab
    • You will be taken to the Region select screen where you will see the Regions you have created on the server
    • Select a Region which contains a city you want to take to Single-Player
    • You will be taken to the games Region View
    • You will see a “Transfer Region” button, click this button to start the transfer process from Multiplayer to Single-Player
    • Once the transfer is complete, you will receive a notification of completion
    • Click OK
  • You will be returned to the Region select screen where you can continue to transfer additional Regions and Cities to Single-Player

You can also do this by highlighting your Region after selecting PLAY from the Main Menu. A “Transfer Region” button will appear. Clicking the button will commence the transfer process.

Note:

    • The whole Region and its Cities will be transferred for use in Single-Player
    • You will automatically become Mayor of cities within the Region unless it contains content you do not currently own.

– If this is the situation you will be able to visit the city which uses the content.
– The city will continue to trade and simulate automatically at the same rate it had when on the game server.

    • If you purchase additional content after transferring a region you may be able to claim cities using additional content, simply load any city in your region that you control, the next time you return to the Region Overview screen if you own the same or more content than the visited city you will be assigned control of the city.
    • The file size of the download can vary depending on the number of Cities in the Region. Each city has an approximate file size of 1MB.
    • Once you have transferred your region from Multiplayer to Single-Player, your Cities in that Region will be abandoned. Other players in your Region will be able to continue online in Multiplayer or also opt to transfer to Single-Player at a later time.
  • When you transfer a City to Single-Player, the most recent Region that was transferred will appear in the top left slot of your save games.
