How To Marry A Robot In The Sims 3 Ambitions
I've been raving a great deal about the Sims 3 Ambitions in recent times for a variety of reasons. There are a great range of new careers, lifetime wishes, and even life time rewards. But what you might not have known is that it is possible to marry a robot in The Sims 3 Ambitions and even have Sim-Robot Woohoo... though at this stage it is disappointingly not possible to have children with robots. One day, one day.
How do you manage to marry a robot? Well, for starters you'll need to collect 40,000 Lifetime Rewards points. As soon as you have made your 40 k, you can trade them in for the reward 'My Best Friend'. This reward involves having a robot join your household with automatic 'Best Friend' relationship status with the sim who took the reward.
The robot has needs, of course. Robots need sleep as much as people do, and they need food too, although instead of eating sim food, they eat scrap. Your robot has a special ability to 'Smash' objects in your home, which turns them into piles of scrap it can eat.
Any sim in the house can program the robot to have various traits that they find useful or attractive, or both. Be careful with the 'childish' trait however, robots with the childish trait will try and play in sprinklers only to break down because of the water. You'll then have to repair them and fence off your sprinklers and make sure that the garden gate is locked to any sim but your gardening sim.
Romancing a robot is much like any other courtship. First of all you must make friends and get to know each other, and then the flirting can begin in earnest. You can make the process easy on yourself by programming the robot to be a hopeless romantic and family oriented if you like, or you can tough it out with the inexplicable rejections that occur even though both parties have the 'kiss moodlet', it's all up to you.
Robots may have a bunch of features they enjoy showing off when they get the chance, but is your sim willing to give up the opportunity to have little sim babies? Only you can make that decision in all your megalomaniacal wisdom. Remember, in The Sims 3, unlike in real life, you can adopt babies with a simple phone call. Oh how convenient that would be.
