Reading Group Guide

You want to get the most out of Late Night. You want to skip to the front of the line and be seen inside the hottest clubs. You want an all-new high-rise building in a glitzy high rise. You want to try out a cool new career in fi lm, where you’re sure to become the toast of the town. We’re here to make sure you get all that and more. This guide is packed with secrets for success in the big city. Because when you’re a big shot, life’s just more fun. Especially life in Bridgeport.

The Sims 3 Primer–Is Late Night your very fi rst Sims 3 expansion pack? Perhaps you started right away in Bridgeport, skipping over the more bucolic Sunset Valley of The Sims 3 base game. No worries. This brief primer goes over the concepts in this guide, such as how wishes and moodlets work. But don’t worry; we won’t spend too much time on the basics. We know you want to get to the new stuff right away. After all, you heard there were vampires in this expansion pack, right?

New Simology–Simology is the core of a Sim, the essence that makes up personality. Late Night’s new traits and Lifetime Wishes let you further defi ne new Sims. Be sure to check out all the new moodlets so your Sims stay happy, which usually makes it much easier to complete wishes and opportunities. The new Late Night skills are also busted wide open here, too. We share all the secrets of the new Mixology skill so you are making the hottest beverages in no time. The Guitar skill is joined by the Piano, Drums, and Bass skills, too. This chapter will get you in tune, pronto.

New Careers–Every single career for the base game exists in Bridgeport, but Late Night introduces an all-new profession: the Film career. This career splits into Acting and Directing branches, too. Will your Sim settle behind the camera or demand the starring role?

Tour of Bridgeport–Welcome to the newest hot spot on the map: Bridgeport. This downtown is defi ned by its skyline of condos and clubs. Your tour includes not only details on every venue in Bridgeport, but also a detailed breakdown of the bar scene. You cannot waltz into any joint during your fi rst night in Bridgeport, you know. You have to work for entry into the swankest spots. But we’ll make sure the barrier rope doesn’t keep you in the cold for very long.
Popularity Contest–Late Night is all about seeing and being seen. Bridgeport has its share of celebrities. But you’re not content with just being starstruck. You want to be one of the beautiful people. We’ll make sure you’re on the fast track to fame.

Vamping It Up–The ultimate creatures of the night are on the prowl in Bridgeport. When the sun goes down, the vampires come out. They don’t make themselves known right away, though. This chapter pulls back the curtain on the secretive clan, including how you can become one of them. There are real benefi ts to going vampire, but there are two sides of this coin. When you surrender yourself to the night, you have to give up the day.
