View Full Version : Is it worth buying?
4th Feb 2011, 08:52 AM
This has probably already been asked and tbh from what the cover looks like and such.. the only reason I see for getting it is so that I can get certain custom contents that I'm wanting that require it. Can you guys give me some insight on what all it does/has with it/etc? Thanks so much!

This EP is all about jobs and professions.
New Professions (no rabbitholes):
-Self Employed (Painter, writer, etc.)
A new job (in rabbithole) is the education career at the school in any neighborhood.
If you like the idea of professions (which are really fun IMO), then this game is for you! Oh, and it adds the self employed inventer career and tattoo artist skill with a ton of new tattoos.

Thanks so much for giving me a heads up! It definitely sounds way more interesting than I originally thought! Especially with the tattoo and ghostbusting bits. ^__^ Looks like I'll be purchasing come payday!

Doesn't sculpting come with that EP as well? :)
I really like Ambitions personally, it just adds a bit more variety to the game. I like the stylist career and the inventing career a lot myself :)

I love the self employed feature and playing fire fighters now and again. It is the only expansion I have and I bought it for the robots XD

Ambitions is one of those expansions that I consider a must-have. It adds a great deal to the core play of the game. Giving depth to daily professions in addition to adding something for your sims to do when they're not 'working'. The ability to purchase lots and sell stuff via consignment is also in this expansion; You can also self employ your sim by opening up a salon, or a farmers market and sell produce.
Good stuff all around. Probably the #1 expansion to purchase if you're into playing the game (versus building houses, lots, etc).

The Consignment Store is a must in my opinion. If I had to give up all but one of my expansions, the one I would keep would be Ambitions, in a heartbeat.
I'll be honest, the professions get old pretty quickly, but Ambitions isn't a "One trick pony" it brings so much to the game. (In my opinion at least)

Are you kidding? I love it to pieces.
I've always been frustrated with the lack of job options. Professions can be hard to manage in a larger household(coughfirefightercough), but being self-employed with your own work hours is awesome. If you have WA, you can have a job making nectar. You can be a professional writer, a gardener, a fisherman... almost any skill. Just the self-employment option opens up a whole new world of job possibilities.
And then there's the fog emitter. I'm crazy about atmosphere in the sims, and this buydebug object has endless uses.
Just... guh. The new objects and clothes are definitely not the best part, because it gets waaay better.
