Ok chat about the sims 3 late night ep here.


There was a Twitter Q&A event with Grant Rodiek where a lot of info about Late Night was revealed.

A thread on the TS3 site summarized the session. I'll post it here.


1) RELEASE is October 26, 2010 worldwide. <---WORLDWIDE!

2) Do you have a cover for Late Night Yet? Not yet we are still working on a cover for this EP.


1)How could we have vampires without vampire children! Of course they can reproduce and make vampiric offspring.

2) Vampires will age, but VERY slowly. Vampires will remain young adults and adults for a LOOOOOOOOOOONG time.

3) Vampires can die by thirst!

4) They aren't always innocent! But yes, plasma packs, plasma fruit, and as you mentioned, drinking from other Sims.

5) In Vampires Thirst replaces hunger. But, vampires play quite differently than other Sims.

6) Vampire powers They can read minds, hunt others, and become super powerful very quickly

7) All children, vampire or no, must go to school. It's the law! Plus, we don't want them to be dumb.

8- Vampirism is genetic

9) Vampires -- Death by Thirst, Old Age...really any death except Hunger.

10) Vampires have a special skin type of sorts (NOT GLITTER). But no, we don't have new "skin types."

11) Vampires do need sleep..Yes. We even added a new special bed for them that's quite haunting.

12) No, no coffins. They use regular beds and the new vampire altar.

13) We have a vampire cure that is a potion

14) Do Vampires have specific traits? No, but they have tons of unique behavior. They are really great.

15) New Ghost for Vampires!

16) You need to find a vampire, befriend them, and convince them to turn you. I bet the hidden vampire bar is a good place...

17) You need to ask a Vampire to drink their blood. We're not too big on wanton violence.

18- Vampires have a favorite food. O Positive and yes, there is a new genre of music too.

19) We didn't create vampire specific clothing but we did add a ton of new outfits. They are easily the best we've made.

20) The game is always changing. The trailer is based on some early footage of Vampires. Things can change.

21) There aren't vampire bloodlines. They pass on their traits and abilities genetically

22) Vampires aren't happy when they eat Garlic.. I have to leave SOME surprises as to what happens when they do eat garlic.

23) Plasma is RED & Plasma Packs are a new snack to satisfy a vampires' thirst

24) Sims skin changes when they become vampires

25) Weather in the new neighborhood is sunny and bright for now. Advisory warning if you're a vampire.


1) Guitar/Drums/Bass/Piano all have skills, opportunities, wishes, you name it.

2) "Make a move" a new romantic option

3) There's a new Film Career that has two branches: Director and Actor. There are some cool things you can do out in the town too!

4) Mixology is the other new skill. Create tons of awesome new juice drinks, learn some sweet moves, and even work as a mixologist.

5) New traits are Shy and a new one for Celebrity Sims.

6) your Sims will sometimes have acting and directing jobs outside the film studio.

7) We do have acting auditions out in the neighborhood. You can also go shoot b-roll footage. It's pretty cool!

8- The new film Career shares some of the Ambitions features, much like the Doctor career.

9) New Celeb Trait..It's similar to Eccentric for Inventing. It gives you an edge in being and becoming a celebrity.

10) Yeah, we have four musical skills for four musical instruments.

11) New Career..Film Career! New Traits..Shy! Star Quality!

12) Paparazzi are in the game. They will sneak around to take photos of celebs.

13) Do you get tipped or paid for playing instruments/gigs? Heck yeah! Musicians don't work for free! (Unless they are bad musicians).

14) This time we only added 2 more traits. There's also another trait you'll be getting soon..

15) New trait for fast lane? Maybe

16) We added new opportunities for the new skills and career, as well as gigs for the band.

17) Your Sim can moonlight as a mixologist or earn money in the band.

18- There's a new Teen Celebrity part time job only available to children of celebs

19) Will the celebrity job work like the jobs in base game, like Ambitions jobs, like the celebrity job in Superstar, or in a new way? It isn't a job. You build points by acting like a celebrity, such as schmoozing, doing things in careers, and more.

20) You can form bands with others, kick people out, have jam sessions...

21) You cannot have a job being part of the Paparazzi it is a NPC


1) There's a new breast slider for females and new muscle sliders for both genders. Let's just say we've had some funny convos.

2) Better celebrities, better drinks, and more

3) We have a lot of new objects. Shuffleboard, darts, bubble bar, new professional bars, 3 new instruments, HOT TUBS

16) Can teenagers go out to the club? Yes, they can (assuming it's not too late and curfew kicks in). The focus is definitely for adults, however.

4) Yes, there are undergrounds, or subways as we call them here in the states.

6) We have several subways through the neighborhood. You can place your own if you want, even on your Sim's home lot.

21) Yes, there is the new subway and new film studio.

22) Is the new EP basically gonna be a mix of The Sims: Hot Date, and The Sims: House Party? No, it's not quite that simple. We took a lot of our favorite features and mixed them in a totally new way. (Plus new stuff!)

23) No loading screens! A short time after entering one subway your Sim will exit another.

24) The subway is free UNLESS you get mugged. But...that doesn't happen THAT often. It's faster than driving.

25) You can get mugged on the subway? I thought it was Rated T? It's not a violent mugging. You can get "mauled by bears" technically in The Sims 3. We're silly, not violent!

26) The pools have huge updates. You can now build them on any floor (so, top floor of a penthouse!) and they are curved
