|Game||The Sims 3: World Adventures|
Overview[edit | edit source]France and features activities and items that reflect French traditions. It has brick buildings and yellowish pastures. It is an excellent grape-growing country, and has a strong sense of history about it. Sims can learn how to produce (non-alcoholic) nectar here. "Champs Les Sims" is French for "The Sims Fields," and is a reference to the Champs-Élysées, a famous vibrant avenue in Paris. Some people might also relate Champs Les Sims to the French city of Nîmes, famous for a Roman aqueduct. In Champs Les Sims, there is a viaduct with a train track running on it. Occasionally a train passes by from one tunnel to another. The train might be a reference to the Orient Express, and its model is reused from Sims 2 Free Time Desiderata Valley neighbourhood. Sims can explore landmark tombs and hidden tombs throughout this world, thereby undertaking adventures. There are numerous pre-made families in Champs Les Sims, although they all unfortunately lack description texts and money.
A trip to Champs Les Sims for one Sim costs 1900 simoleons (for three days). It is the most expensive vacation destination. While visiting Champs Les Sims, Sims stay at a base camp, unless they have a level three visa and have purchased a vacation home.
If a male Sim tries for a baby with a female Sim from another country while at home, the female Sim will immediately return home and the child will be in the child stage already.
