Sims Saturday: Get to Work Pack Overview

Hello Everyone!
Hope you are still doing well.

As explain in the previous post that went up before this one, today I start the new post series where I give you a quick overview a sims pack.

The first one we will take a look at is Get to Work.

Get to Work was the first expansion pack, it was released on the 31st of March in 2015.

With this pack comes interactive career, which mean that you can follow your sims to work and make them so different given task which will made them have a promotion faster.

There is only three interactive career which are Detective, Doctor and Scientist. I have tried the Detective and Scientist career and while I will the idea of not entering a rabbit hole, it can become redundant with time since the task are always the same.

With this pack also come the Retails lot, which a lot you to build retail lot, there you can sell item, pretty much every item can be sold, I usually use the retail lot to sell collectable or painting. You really need to be patient and interact with the customer if you want to sell fast, just be careful to not use the same interaction twice in a row.

Tip: If you don’t want to travel between your home and the store, you can build a house / apartment on top of the store, just make sure to lock your door!.

With Get to Work came the first Supernatural sims, the Aliens and if you feel adventurous you can build a rocket (spaceship) and find your way to the planet Sixam the secret lot that comes with this pack. The planet is only accessible by travelling there with the rocket ship and if you are lucky with the wormhole generator, item you can unlock through the Scientist career.

In addition to the secret lot of Sixam, a new world was added, this one is accessible through the world map, it is the Magnolia Promenade.

Four lots is included in this world, three of them have pre-build retail lots, you can of course all change them as much as you want.

Now let’s take a look at the build and buy item and create a sims (CAS) item

Build and Buy

There is 284 new items coming with this pack and most of them are lock behind game play, if you want to use them in a build without having to go through the game play you will need to enter some cheat.

Create a Sims

There is 194 new CAS item include this doesn’t included all the one that can be unlocked through game play.

From all those item I must have a few favorite right? Surprisingly …nope, when I build I don’t tend to go for item from this pack since most of them are really specific, you have a lot of option if you want to build a retail or any other particular lot that is not residentials.

As for my favorite CAS item, some of the child one are quite cute, but the one I will use the most is this male one, but inverse color

Don’t ask me why, but I find it sexy on my sims…

It is now time for this important question, do I recommend this pack?
Yes, but only if you want to have more career choice, it does add a little bit to the game play, if you want to bring your sims shopping, but it’s pretty much it, like I said the build and build item are for a very specific type of lot and the CAS item are decent, but I didn’t had them I wouldn’t be sad.
To be frank the most interesting aspect to this pack is probably the Alien and Sixam, but you need to be into it.

If you are looking to buy it, maybe wait for it to be on sale.


This was a quick overview of the Get to Work expansion pack, if you have any question feel free to ask in the comment section below.
