This game is gonna be cool but when you get this game and down load it do you have to have the first one to do that.

Woaaa... We Can go to Egypt... Can we go there by plane?

The most logical answer is yes, and you may be able to actually see the plane like you ca see the whole neighborhood. But these are only assumptions.

Hi. Could anyone edit the red notation to state that the article contains spoiler information. That would be nice for users who don't want to be spoiled by the article. --Sims2soapstyle 02:11, September 13, 2009 (UTC)

Price[edit source]

I have found the price to be WAY too high $40, thats almost as much as the game. Sign this petition to try and reduce it

You can't be serious, $40 for an expansion pack THATS DAY LIGHT ROBBERY!! Drsdino 23:08, September 17, 2009 (UTC)

Yea, if you want to do something about it sign the petition-Snopy79797

To late, I already did. Drsdino 01:33, September 24, 2009 (UTC)

I paid 44$ for mine.. not really worth it, but Im glad I've got it Gshave

Seems a bit contradictory that you get £6 of "free" simpoints but have to spend an extra £10 to buy the game. Theoretically i'm still £4 out of pocket even if I use the simpoints, (which I did, might as well if they're "free".) ҴїҫэӌҬӈәЅҥїʐʐɻє 16:17, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

I know it's several years later, but I got a brand new copy of World Adventures AND Generations together for $19. That's two games for less than the prize of one O: I think it's just that its decreased in value after other more popular EPs came out, but still, it was a really pleasant surprise! (talk) 21:20, April 10, 2014 (UTC)

That's the trend with EA. Buying games as soon as they come out isn't worth it. It isn't until the game has been out for a few months - maybe years - before EA decides to actually attract more customers. Very annoying. --k6ka (talk | contribs) 21:26, April 10, 2014 (UTC)

Ruins in France?[edit source]

I just think it's odd. How could there be ruins or tombs in france? Are there tombs or ruins there in real life or something?

I believe so .. Jason (Talk to Me, I'm Lonely) 18:45, March 25, 2013 (UTC)

Eiffel Tower[edit source]

Turns out the Eiffel Tower IS in the game and not just as background scenery. If you enter "buydebug on" into the cheat consle the Eiffel Tower is in there (along with all the other abroad sights to see, pyramids, sphinx, dragon cave ect...) Shouldn't this be mentioned? 11:53, December 30, 2009 (UTC)

Yes, but it's so bit it takes up one entire lot, and unless you want to dedicate one lot to a piece of scenery it's fairly pointless. It might be nice for taking a few photos in front of it, but I can't see any other reasons. Buydebug is more useful for placing tomb items and spawners IMO.

WTH is wrong with it!?[edit source]

Things are going to crazy - the latest update messed up WA's gameplay and some major bugs which is not common in the old version appears frequently. Like the stuck of sims after taking photographs and mysterious twins. Anyone has ideas about this?--Got No Signature. 05:13, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Umm, I'm not sure. Try reinstalling your ame and see if it works then, but so you know World Adventures is really glitchy for me as well. ~>ђ tคlк 05:15, August 15, 2011 (UTC)

Shops won't open?[edit source]

I have the latest update available... At least the best one I could get with just the base game and world adventures. But for some reason the bookshops in any of the destinations just NEVER open I wait outside nobody shows up but rarely if I'm very quick(like the moment I get there) there's the shop owner on the lot only when I click on him and select buy items and my sims about to get there the owner just runs of and I can't find them again! does anyone know what's going on or how I could fix it. Any help is appreciated thanks.

moving[edit source]

Is it possible to (permanently) move families to foreign countries? (talk) 03:59, November 19, 2013 (UTC)

No, I don't think so. But you might with cheats or mods. Joey.eyeball (talk) 04:04, November 19, 2013 (UTC)
The particular mod you'll need is Twallan's Traveler. Nikel Talk Vote! 14:47, November 19, 2013 (UTC)

Travel[edit source]

For some reason when I have my sim travel to France the loading screen just doesen't load. Any ideas?Niko 2010 (talk) 08:47, December 21, 2013 (UTC)

Anybody have any ideas yet?--Niko 2010 (talk) 14:22, August 23, 2014 (UTC)
It could be caused by anything. Do you have any outdated mods? Did you patch your game? Did you possibly modify your game in any way? Nikel Talk Vote! 08:22, September 14, 2014 (UTC)

Building friendships with fellow tourists / foreign residents[edit source]

Is it just me, or when a Sim visits a foreign land in World Adventures, they tend to build friendships more quickly than when they are in their homeland? ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 07:28, February 10, 2016 (UTC)

I don't think so... Not in my experience, no. Nikel Talk Vote! 08:31, April 25, 2016 (UTC)
That's strange, because it has happened in my game on at least one occasion. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 08:37, April 25, 2016 (UTC)
I don't know, but there's a lot of factors that boost your relationship with other Sims, like high Charisma, certain completed skill challenges, etc.. I can't think of anything though, because I already forgot. But I don't think certain destination causes relationship boost in my best recollection. Nikel Talk Vote! 08:55, April 25, 2016 (UTC)
One of those factors you mentioned could very well be what caused my Sim's relationships with other Sims to boost. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 09:38, April 25, 2016 (UTC)
