Sims 3 SimBot Making Guide

Updated on June 25, 2010

This is the second part of this series. Click here to start at the beginning.

Step 3: Deliver A Heart Cut Pink Diamond

If you spent ages collecting every gem in sight in the first stage of this task, this shouldn't be too bad, assuming you got all those gems cut. Don't waste your time looking for a pink diamond, though some simmers say they found theirs in the mausoleum or behind the sport's arena, it is quite easy to find one just by building a miner and drilling in your back yard. The hard part is that in order to get the 'Heart Cut' status... you need to have found 10 different types of gems. Fun! Oh, what fun. You're probably going to have to travel in order to complete this challenge if you have World Adventures. Note that some sim players have reported this part of the challenge to be bugged, and if that is the case, you may very well not be able to do much about it.

Step 4: Deliver 100 Pieces Of Scrap

After the previous tasks, which, depending on your luck and buggyness of your install may have been either mildly annoying or rip your face off frustrating, delivering 100 pieces of scrap should be a piece of cake, in fact, if you don't already have 100 pieces of scrap in your inventory, then you probably haven't been playing obsessively enough. Regardless, you can just go home to your workbench and buy 100 scrap for 500 simoleons or so. Or you can rummage in piles of junk for a few hours. Either way, you're going to get this part done quicker than any other part of the quest and it's going to feel damn good.

Step 5: Create Master Invention

Now you go home and you create the master invention. Finally!

Creating the Master Invention takes half a sim day, assuming you've availed yourself of the 'testingcheatsenabled true' trick I mentioned earlier. (Or which I should have mentioned earlier, anyway.) If you don't it could take you a lot longer as your sim slopes off to shower, eat, sleep and do all those other annoying sim things that get in the way of game progression.

Et voila! At long last you have managed to make a simbot!

Now I'm about to burst your bubble. Want to make another one? Well, you'll need to find yourself another pink diamond and have it cut into the heart shape before you can do that. And you'll need another piece of palladium. Given that these items are individually about as rare as hen's teeth, and that you're more likely to accumulate 40k lifetime rewards before you find both of them again, it's safe to say that this is perhaps the most annoying and somewhat pointless quest in The Sims 3 to date.

      A few mistakes; you don't need every gem in the game to get the heart cut. What nobody seems to realise is, that in the collecting journal, you only need any ten types of gem. Of course, if you don't have World Adventures, this means getting all of the availible gems, but if you have World Adventures, any ten gems will do.

      An easy way to do this is to learn how to "break Space Rock Blocks" in the Martial Arts skill, assuming you have World Adventures, and you'll have them in no time. This can also be used to find the pink diamond and palladium.

      Happy playing! =)

      If you don't use cheats they're rare enough to be so annoying that The Sims 3 official site has multiple QQ threads from people who can't find 'em :)

      I've updated the first part of this guide to include the cheat methods for gathering all this stuff relatively quickly.

      the diamond and pallawatever aren't really that rare. you can always use the buydebug cheat and place some metal and gem spawners. if you have a miner invention if goes pretty quickly.
