Question Answer
Are you including elevators in Late Night? @icreatesims Absolutely! How else would you get to the top floor? Certainly not stairs! [1]
Private profile

@TheSims3 Will there be separate skills for each instrument?
@WorldWar3434 Absolutely! Guitar/Drums/Bass/Piano all have skills, opportunities, wishes, you name it. [3]
@TheSims3 Ciao Grant! What new careers and interactions- if any- can we look forward to? :)

@TheSims3 Hello will Vampires be able to have, Vampire children? @FabKail16 How could we have vampires without vampire children! Of course they can reproduce and make vampiric offspring. [5]

@TheSims3 Is the new neighborhood a neighborhood like Riverview,Twinbork and Sunset Valley or like a neighborhood where you move?

@TheSims3 when can you say that the release date is going to be?
@BestTPro October 26, 2010 worldwide. [citation needed]
@TheSims3 What new tools create a sim?
@TheSims3Brasil We have new sliders! Also, the new clothing and hair assets are gorgeous. [61]
@TheSims3 how can a vampire die?

@Indonesian_Cow It changes. It's slightly pale and...unearthly. It looks really cool. Again, NOT GLITTER. [66]
@TheSims3 will Sims be able to ask other sims out on dates now, like official dates?
@aeroprincess87 You will have ability to form groups and hang out together. There are romantic groups as well. [67]
@TheSims3 What about the driving system being improved in the future? I don't like it when Sims simply vanish in and out of vehicles... @gtns Currently the system lets us create ANY car. Fire trucks, racing cars. We prefer this flexibility which we might not otherwise have. [68]
@TheSims3 Can vampires have babies with a regular sim (and make a half vampire baby?)
@silver_moon525 Yes, but there are no half vampires. They either are, or are not a vampire. [69]

@TheSims3 Again: Please tell me the Vamps don't sleep in coffins! Also, can I have a puppy please dad!? LOL
@AbiKat No, no coffins. They use regular beds and the new vampire altar. [74]
@TheSims3 if a vampire is in the sun what will happen, Death by fire, a new death? and is death by thirst a new ghost or the same as hunger @eduardog3000 They get fried by the sun. Too much time and they will very much regret it. [75]
@TheSims3 Can we create our own buildings with the height we want?
@ActualidadSims No, but there is a huge variety of buildings to use. [76]
@TheSims3 So you can't flirt with the bouncers to get in?
@MellsChoco11 If the club has a bouncer you can sneak in, bribe, hack your way in...or get in legitimately with your celeb status. [77]
@TheSims3 ¿Do we need an ability for each musical instrument?
@yerak007 Yeah, we have four musical skills for four musical instruments. [78]

@JoaoxLucas Yes. Our engineers put in some gorgeous new water reflections. Load up China or Egypt especially -- GORGEOUS. [87]
Private profile
@Hraklis Yes, there is the new subway and new film studio. [88]

@Hraklis PLUS we made updates to some old rabbit holes for variety. [89]

@TheSims3 is death by thirst a new ghost or the same as hunger?
@eduardog3000 New ghost! [90]
@TheSims3 Hows does a Sim become a Vampire in Late Night?
@DamienF519 You need to find a vampire, befriend them, and convince them to turn you. I bet the hidden vampire bar is a good place... [91]
@TheSims3 Is Late Night going to be rated T?
@beachchickadee T for Teen [92]

Private profile @bafendo 3 new hot tubs. They look fantastic. [100]
Private profile
@Gurra09 The subway is free UNLESS you get mugged. But...that doesn't happen THAT often. It's faster than driving. [101]
Private profile'
@josieandrews96 You pick your end destination. [102]
Private profile
@JoaoxLucas The pools have huge updates. You can now build them on any floor (so, top floor of a penthouse!) and they are curved. [103]
Private profile @karensejer No. The Vampires in Late Night are awesome, modern, and cool. No goofball blood suckers here.
Private profile
@Indonesian_Cow You need to ask. We're not too big on wanton violence :) [104]
Private profile @Hraklis Vampires have a favorite food. O Positive :) and yes, new music too. [105]
@TheSims3 I hope you're aware that a patch broke the ability of lamps to spread light to floors above (outdoors). Please fix it! @MellsChoco11 That sounds really sweet. Thanks for the idea. [106]
Private profile
@RenzSarayba Yes, they can (assuming it's not too late and curfew kicks in). The focus is definitely for adults, however. [107]
@TheSims3 May I build subway stations by my own, on any lot in any neighbourhood? Even the ones I create in CAW?
@Gurra09 Yes, they are basically a big object. You can place them on any lot type, even your own. They will be in buydebug. [108]
@TheSims3 You can get mugged on the subway? I thought it was Rated T?
@DJD703 It's not a violent mugging. You can get "mauled by bears" technically in The Sims 3. We're silly, not violent! [109]
@TheSims3 Would you consider making a vacations expansion that is different from WA that has more of a relaxing nonquest theme or was WA it?
@Candi_Dyla Yeah, we would consider anything actually. That's a good idea. I do so love vacation :) [110]
@TheSims3 Hi ! What is the color of the logo and the box of Late Night? =) @BricaSims We're not done making the box art or logos yet. So, I cannot tell you. What color would you prefer? [111]
@TheSims3 ARE YOU GOING TO INCORPORATE HOTELS AT THE NEW EXPANSION PACK???????????? @mysims3life No hotels. You live in the new neighborhood, not visit. [112]
@TheSims3 is there any traffic light!!???? Traffic Light??@@
@indrabaru1 The traffic light is a decorative object, so no, we don't have a complex traffic system :) [113]
@TheSims3 What? How do you get Mauled by Bears in TS3? @severedsolo Hang out in the mausoleum WAY too long. [114]
@TheSims3 English neighbourhood would be epic! But not too much sterotypes!! :D Stuff like Windsor Castle, London, english villages and such @IonosphereRhino Haha, you say no stereotypes then say we need to build castles. You're silly :) (But I DO love London) [115]
Private profile @SpinTheMoon Late Night is all about going out on the town and hanging with friends. Awesome late night experiences. No ocean swimming atm. [116]
@TheSims3 will there be elevators?!!
@eduardog3000 Yes! [117]
@TheSims3 Grant, Will there be a DJ booth in Late Night?
@jilliankloster No DJ booth. We wanted to focus on instruments for now. [118]
@thesims3 will there ever be a way to make a living by being a "tattoo artist?"
@JxG1991 You can do that in Ambitions. Your Sim earns money when doing tattoos for others. [119]
Private profile @w3by We have this wicked new goatee based on one of our engineers. You can see it on the bouncer in the trailer! [120]
@TheSims3 what new career? what are the personality characteristics of the new sims ?
@redlee_ Film Career! Shy! Star Quality! [121]
@TheSims3 And the trailer for The Sims 3 Fast Lane? @DimensaoSims What about the trailer? [122]
@TheSims3 what´s about paparazzi????????
@krJU Paparazzi are in the game. They will sneak around to take photos of celebs. [123]
@TheSims3 Grant, are there any plans for a Pets installment? Maybe with added pets, like birds, gerbils, snakes... ?
@tokyocentricity Anything is possible. Right now, we're all about going out on the town ;) [124]
@TheSims3 What about the weather in the game?
@kathysolo Weather in the new neighborhood is sunny and bright for now. Advisory warning if you're a vampire. [125]
@thesims3 is their spiral staircases i really want to know
@hellokittysims We added a ton of new features for build mode but not spiral staircases (I listed it in a previous tweet). [126]
@TheSims3 How will existing Sunset Valley/Riverview/Twinbrook families benefit from this EP?
@LamaDaan The same as families in new EP. You can have celebs, bars, bands, and more in your old neighborhood if you want. [127]
@TheSims3 Will the vampires have special clothing (like gothic clothing)?
@Indonesian_Cow We didn't create vampire specific clothing but we did add a ton of new outfits. They are easily the best we've made. [128]
@TheSims3 in the sims 3 late night trailer is that the final look of the vampires because they dont look very vampire-ish, will they act dif @seanmcbay15 The game is always changing. The video is based on some early footage. [129]

@tinydancer114 Heck yeah! Musicians don't work for free! (Unless they are bad musicians). [131]
@TheSims3 How many traits will come with Late Night? I hope it's a lot. Please let there be lots! That's my favourite thing about EPs! @Candi_Dyla This time we only added 2 more traits. But we love them too so don't worry. There's also another trait you'll be getting soon... [132]
@TheSims3 did u get the idea for a film career from me? i put a movie on the website saying there should be a "The Sims 3: On Air"?????????? @A__J__D No, we didn't. It made sense for us to have a film career in a game with a big emphasis on celebrities. Great minds think alike!
@DimensaoSims what's new in 'create a sim'?
@redlee_ New outfits, new hair, and the breast slider (for women) and new muscle slider for both genders.
@TheSims3 @replies - Will building have underground parking?
@ArthurMinegussi No, but you could build a basement and put parking spaces in it if you wanted...
@AMGIQ No need to shout sir! There aren't vampire bloodlines. They pass on their traits and abilities genetically though.
@TheSims3 New trait for fast lane?
