There are various opportunities for your Sims to choose from while exploring theirs world. Certainly there are even more options when deciding where to spend their hard-earned profit.

Online store overview
Above all, let’s see how you can access the store. At the bottom middle of your screen you will find a purple icon with a white cart on it. Once you click on it, the store will open and you will notice three tabs: Simoleons and LP, Social and Specials.
First of all, there is a tab that offers different bundle variations containing Simoleons and/or Life Points. Also, it’s good to know that amount you get in each pack depends on what level you are.
Furthermore, second tab is the one where you can buy Social Points. They are similar to Life Points, except they are purple. You can use them to buy a specific set of items you can’t buy with other currencies.
Finally, the third tab contains special items you can add to your base game. Certainly the following chapters will explore all of these in more detail.
