Sims 2 Open for Business Patch
|THE SIMS 2 OPEN FOR BUSINESS expansion|
The Sims Are Getting Down To Business!
|From boutiques to salons, department stores and beyond, your Sims are taking over the workplace one business at a time. In The Sims 2 Open For Business, your Sims are the boss! Create virtually any kind of business, from a trendy clothing boutique, hip beauty salon, blooming floral shop, high-end electronics store or bustling restaurant chain. Your Sims will have to hire the staff, train the employees and as the business grows, assign the most talented Sims to work on a variety of projects such as making toys, arranging a floral boutique or manufacturing robots. From clever tinkerer to master craftsman, you'll develop your Sim's talents to best suit your business needs.|
As a savvy entrepreneur, your Sims must keep an eye out for slacker employees and be prepared to fire them as quickly as you hired them. Will your Sims be the largest fashion retailer around, build an innovative business empire or launch the next BIG thing?
Crafting is an all new game play feature in Open For Business. Finally, your Sims will be able to craft their own items which they can either sell or use themselves. Develop your Sims' crafting talents and create various floral arrangements, toys and robots. You can even customize your crafted item's name and description before uploading it to the Exchange for everyone to see.
Higher business rank gets you more customers and earns you points to spend on business perks, which are rewards that will make your business Sims more effective, both in their business and home life.
| Create Thriving Businesses - Open up shops selling just about anything from clothing, electronics and toys to flowers, baked goods, robots and more. Customize any business to your choosing by tailoring the store theme, layout and prices. Hire employees with high sales skills and employ independent managers to run things while your Sim is away. Watch as your business grows from a mom and pop shop into a booming empire.|
| Be The Boss - Train employees, promote the best, and fire the rest. Cater to different customers including browsers and loyal shoppers. Dress your Sims in outrageous mascot outfits that resemble Knights, Ninjas, Gorillas, and more. Promote your best employees, but beware of slacker workers and be prepared to lay them off without hesitation!|
| Learn The Tricks Of The Trade - The customer is king. Develop your Sims' sales skills and determine if your employees should use a hard sell or drop the price to close the deal. Win the Best-of-the-Best Award to establish your Sim's business rep. Will your Sim's business make more money selling low quality products at basement rates or luxurious goods at scale-tipping prices?|
| Turn Talents Into Cash - Arrange flowers, make toys, and create robots to catch thieves at home or clean up the shop. Develop master-skilled Sims to make the most prized and expensive goods. Or settle for an entry-level crafter and churn out pet bricks or faulty toy robots. Just bring home the bacon any way you can!|
| More Than 125 New Items - Stock up on essentials for your Sims' business, including display cases, a beauty salon chair, a toy workbench, a floral station, cash registers, and more. Complete your shop atmosphere with awnings and elevators for easy store navigation, or matching uniforms for all employees. With all the new items, there will never be another dull day building a business!|
