2.0 Intoduction
____________

This is a 100% walkthrough for the game The Urbz: Sims in the City for 
Playstation2.

Welcome to my Faq its my first one. Since I'm an amateur, please forgive 
me if I make any mistakes during typing. If you have something I don't 
know (tips, secrets, etc), please e-mail them to me. I'll update it here 
and give you the credit. Please give me logical ones though, since I'll 
be testing and once it's approved, it'll be here for people to read. 
Thanks for reading this faq by the way.

____________

3.0 Getting Started
____________

Here are some basics you need to know before playing the game. The main 
purpose of this game is to complete goals and you need to do various 
tasks in order to complete the goals.

___________

3.1 Districts and Apartments
___________

In the Urbz: Sims in the City, there is a total of 9 districts. Each 
district has its own unique style and a set of goals which you must 
complete. Goals include building reputation, socialising with people, 
getting in the VIP room, completing 3 job levels etc. I will 
elaborate later in the walkthrough.

There are also 3 apartments which you will be staying in. You will 
first start with 98th Ave 3rd Floor. Others will be unlocked when you 
gain enough reputation as the game progresses. Just like your own home, 
you get to customise the apartment with decor and furnishings you like. 
There is also a unique pet that comes with each apartment (but you 
need to unlock it). The pet can be annoying as it always dirties the 
place.

___________

3.2 Needs
___________

Just like any Sims game, your Sims have their needs. However in this game 
there are only 5 needs. The needs affect your mood which in turn affects 
your social interaction.

1) Hunger: You need to eat in order to survive. Food at be found in 
refrigerators, vending machines or almost everywhere be it in the 
district or your own apartment. You can even call for pizza if you want. 
If the hunger bar turns Red, then your Sim is hungry. Green is a good sign 
which means your Sims is full.

2) Bladder: You will need to go to the toilet!! The more you eat, the more 
frequent you will need to use the toilet. Every district has its own toilet 
and if you do not go to the toilet in time, your sims will wet themselves. 
Eeekss... you may be fined too!

3) Fun: Everyone needs to have fun even your Sims. So please do fun things 
like dancing to the Stereo or watching TV or watever that is FUN. 

4) Hygiene: Your Sims wants to live in a clean environment including their 
body. So take regular showers, and clean up the mess made by your pet and 
also clean up used plates.

5) Energy: This is important as your Sims need to rest. There is a bed in 
every district so sleep tight when needed. You can also take a nap on a 
sofa or buy an isotonic drink. Remember that if your Sim is too tired, 
he/she may fall asleep on the floor. Bad mood!!!

_____________________________

3.3 Career & Items Needed 
_____________________________

You will need money in this game and getting a job is the only way to get 
money. Simply heed to any Simolian sign found in every district. Each 
district has a unique job. There are 3 levels for each job which you need 
to fulfil. Everytime you complete a job level you will be awarded with a 
social move. 

To progress in job levels 2 and 3, you will need certain skills. They are 
'Artistic','Physical' and 'Mental' skills. To increase your skills (up to 
30), you will need to purchase skill building items which will be unlocked 
as you gain reputation. Each item can increase your skill up to 10 the max. 
To further increase your skill you will need to buy an upgrade from the 
shop. Upgrades can be unlocked as you gain more reputation

Artistic Skill = Schnizzalator
Physical Skill = Exer-cycle
Mental Skill   = Mental Machination Station
						each has 2 upgrades!

Reputation Pts:

45 - Unlocks a new skill building device.
70 - Unlocks a new skill building device.
95 - Unlocks a new skill building device.

75 - Unlocks a skill building upgrade.
110 - Unlocks a skill building upgrade.
150 - Unlocks a skill building upgrade.
200- Unlocks a skill building upgrade.
260 - Unlocks a skill building upgrade.
320 - Unlocks a skill building upgrade.

___________

3.4 Reputation
___________

So much has been mentioned about reputation. So what is it actually. Your 
reputation depends highly on relationship made with other Sims. Sometimes 
you gain reputation from completing goals. Note that reputation is needed 
to enter the VIP room or to unlock other district or aparments. With 
higher reputation, you gain higher rankings and make it easier for you to 
socialise. Highest ranking is the Superstar!!!

___________

3.5 Fashion Sense
___________

Each district has its own style of dressing and you will need to follow it. 
You can purchase clothes from at a clothing shop located in each district. 
The shop will sell clothes according to the District's fashion style. The 
right clothes makes socialising easier and gaining reputation needed to 
enter VIP rooms and unlocking other districts. Any clothes bought will be 
sent to your wardrobe so you can change your style any time you want to. 
In each clothing shop you can customise the head and body. Tatoos and 
piercings can only be found in certain districts.  

___________

3.6 Socialising
___________

You will need to interact and make friends here. In order to socialise, 
simply select the Sim you wish to interact with and pick a social move. 
There are 3 color codes to each move according to your relationship with 
that particular Sim.
Green - Move might work to your advantage
Red - Move may not turn out well
Yellow - Move that might turn out either way

3.7 The XAM
___________

The XAM functions as a PDA or as a cellphone. Press Square button to open it.

Phone: 		Use it to call the other Sims or invite them over to your 
		current location. You can use it to order food, call the Fire 
		Department, the Police or even throw a party.
       		Explore the function

Messages: 	Its like the SMS system where you can receive text messages 
		from your friends.
	  	Darius constantly messages you once you have unlocked a new 
		location. Messages on additional missions will also be sent 
		to you as a reminder.
	  	It can store about 20 latest messages.

Goals: 		This is an important function. View all your goals according 
		to district and apartment. Once you've completed a goal, it 
		will be ticked.

Inventory: 	Use this to view the items your Sims have bought from the 
		shop. Items stored here can be placed anywhere in your 
		apartment and district. Use it also when you want to remove 
		or even sell any of your items. 

Relationships: 	Shows you your progress with each Urbz in the city. A friend 
		is indicated with a positive number while an enemy is marked 
		with a negative number. It is advised to have many friends 
		as they help you gain reputation points and also teach you 
		certain social moves.

Customise: 	Collect different skins and ringtones to customise your XAM 
		to your favourite color and ringtone.

3.8 Buying and Selling Guide

_____________________________

Here is a guide to how you can go about buying and selling your items in your 
inventory.

Buying Guide
-------------

You can only buy items in the 9 districts. Look for a cash register. That 
symbolises the shop. Take note that not all items are available for
you to use as they will be unlocked as you increase your reputation. 

Once you are in the shop, select any item you wish to purchase and click (X)
The item will be transferred to your inventory in your XAM.
To insert the item to whichever place you like, simply go to your XAM,
select inventory, select the item and then proceed to placing the item.

If you wish to remove the item, go to grab-mode. Enter into your inventory. 
Press square button. Select the item to be removed by pressing (X). Then 
press on the square button. The item will be removed and placed into your 
inventory. 

Selling Guide
--------------

Alright, now supposing you do not want the item anymore and you wish to sell.
Simply go to the shop marked by the cash register. Once you are at the shop,
notice that 2 inventories will be opened. On your left is the shop inventory
while to your right is your own inventory (as in which items you have 
purchased from the shop). Move to your inventory by pressing on the circle
button. Automatically, your inventory will become active. Select the item
you wish to sell. Press (X). Item will be sold. To return to the shop's
inventory, press circle button again.

NOTE: The item will be sold AT A CHEAPER PRICE that what you originally
      bought if you have placed it in the game before. SO you make a LOSS!
      
      Also, take note that items that are originally in the game are 
      considered PUBLIC PROPERTY. You cannot move them to your inventory
      much less try to sell them.

      You also cannot overbuild as you may infringe on some fire safety law.


Removing Walls, Wallpaper and Floortiles
----------------------------------------

To remove walls, go to your inventory. Press R1 once. Press square. 
To remove wallpaper, press circle instead of square.
To remove floor tiles, press circle twice instead.

3.9 Some Useful Tips
_____________________

Here is a list of some tips which I think might be useful.

1) Pet pee pee: Okay I know that this is simply annoying but there is a way
                to reduce the mess. Simply select the pet and choose the 
		option: "Follow Me". Amazingly, the pet would not make a 
		mess. Try it.

2) Vending Machine: If you want to get free supply of food and drinks,
		    then KICK on the vending machines. Most of the time
		    some food item will drop down and you will get free
		    food. 
		    
3) Free Food: There are also other sources of free food. One is the
	      Sushi counter at Neon East. After you've completed your
	      work there, select on the sushi on the table to eat. 
	      There are also bars around in the districts. Just go over
	      there, you might be able to get some free drinks. In Cozmo 
	      Street do the bar tending shop. Generally the BBQ grill food
	      is also free of charge.



This is something interesting about J.J.

You need to complete level 3 of any of your jobs. Notice that you get to 
control J.J when you are at the job. After you've JUST completed it, you 
can actually socialise with him! Really! Select him and well socialise. 
I did some socialising and he actually changed CLOTHES! From the normal 
light blue outfit that the janitor wears, he changes into a darker blue 
outfit wearing a purple T-shirt inside... something like that. So 
whenever you are at level 3, the J.J. will always wear that new outfit. 
Interestingly, there will be another janitor once J.J. is in his new 
outfit. 


___________

4.0 Walkthrough
___________

In this section, I will elaborate in detail about the different apartments 
and districts and their respective goals. I will also cover the different 
residents in each disrict and how to go about completing your goals.

___________

4.1 Apartments
___________

As mentioned earlier, there are 3 apartments each with its unique goals and 
pets to unlock.They have to be completed in order.

1. 98th Ave, 3rd floor
-----------------------

You will start from this apartment when you play the game. Firstly, you will 
meet Will who introduces you to Darius. He will also teach you how to use 
Power Socials. Here, you will receive $300 cash and a refigerator, a shower 
and a couch all found in your inventory. 
Check you XAM (press square button).

Resident: You and your pet bulldog (after you've unlocked it)

Goals: Add $750 worth of furniture to 98 Ave, 3rd Floor to unlock a pet 
       Bulldog.
       Add your free furniture and buy a few extra things from the district 
       to unlock your first pet.
       You will receive an acknowledgement once you've completed your goal.

2. Blankwood Towers
----------------------

To unlock Blankwood Towers, you require 80 reputation points.
You can move your furniture from 98th Ave to this apartment. Simply return 
the furniture to you inventory in your XAM. Select the furniture X button, 
and click on the square button. The object will return to your inventory. 
Then move house.

create Darius Secret Machine. Darius will take you to his apartment and 
give you his chain. Its a pretty plush apartment I must say. Check it out 
yourself. You will also gain access to his secret machine which can 
generate lots of $$$ for you! Bling Bling!

8.0 Cheats
_______________

This is such an easy game to play!! For heavens sake, why do you since 
want to use cheats!!! I did not use any Cheats to beat this game. 
Took me only a few days to complete it. Honestly, I do not know of 
any cheats. Sorry...if you were looking for one.
Its not that I do not want to include it but I do not know of any. OK.
So there's no need to e-mail me about Cheats. I DO NOT KNOW OF ANY.

9.0 Questions & Answers 

________________________

This are some of the things that people have e-mailed me about.
Only useful ones will be posted.

Qn 1  The City is always TOO crowded! How to invite my crew over?

Ans   Every district can have only 2 visitors or outsiders at one time.
      Your Sim is considered as one visitor. Other visiors include J.J.,
      the cop, Darius and other Sims from the other districts. Try to 
      monitor to see if there are any visitors before calling your Sim
      friend over. 

Qn 2  How to sell items?

Ans   Read my buying and selling guide please!!! Note that you have to 
      hit on CIRCLE button to move to your own inventory.

Qn 3  How do I pay rent?

Ans   Honestly I do not understand why some people are so keen about 
      paying rent. 
      The answer is you WILL be ASKED TO PAY when it is time for rent
      collection. Its a standard $1000/- paid to Henry. But you can
      REFUSE to pay him. However, he will reposses your items!!!
      Unless there is nothing in your apartment.. then you might be
      safe. Not sure about that.

Qn 4  Can I kill my pet? It's annoying...

Ans   Well I have not tried killing my pet. But what you can do is to 
      surround it by building walls. Then its trapped for good.
      I know the pet pee pee thingy is simply annoying. As mentioned
      in my TIPS section, select "FOLLOW ME" option and your pet is
      less likely to make a mess. It works try it. 
      Also, for me once I've achieved my goal in the apartment I do
      not go back to see my annoying pet. Just live in the districts. 

Qn 5  Why should I make someone join my Crew?

Ans   Okay... there are 2 members whom you must recruit. They are String 
      Bean and Loop D Loop as given is your mission. However, you can also
      recruit other characters. The thing is you get to control your crew.
      Simply press L2 and you get to control them. Ta daa!!
      However I don't think they can take jobs. I tried but failed. Maybe 
      someone can tell me if there is a way. 


Qn 6  How do I create the Darius Secret Machine? I've completed all my 
      goals.

Ans   You need not create the Machine. Once you have unlocked Darius
      Penthouse, the machine is available for you to use. Look around
      in the hall of the apartment. There is a grey table. Once you click
      on it, you will see the "Mint Simoleons" option. Ta daa.. thats the
      secret machine. Its very profitable... try it and you'll know why.
      Good Luck!
