Master of Simology
Unlock all other Trophies.
As with all other
Platinum trophies, this one comes when you obtain all of the other trophies in the game.
Create a household.
This will be the first thing you do. As soon as you finish creating your sim you get the chance to buy a house. Once you move in you get the trophy.
Complete the in-game tutorial.
The in-game tutorial is just a few slides at the beginning of the game that explain the basics to you. There are 7 slides in total, with each getting you to perform a task so you get the hang of the game. You get this trophy after completing the last one when you open the town map.
How You Doin’?
Learn the Charisma Skill.
There are 3 ways you can earn this. The first way is to simply talk to other sims. You can visit a sim at their house, invite them to yours or meet them outside. Talking increases your Charisma level relatively easily and also provides a foundation for possible romances. The second way is to take a class on Charisma at the City Hall. This way costs money and isn't really necessary with so many sims hanging about. Finally the third way is to buy a mirror for your house (if you don't already have one) and practice it there.
Complete 10 Wishes.
Wishes are short term goals for your sim. They pop up in the top right corner of the screen and can be something like improve on a skill or get a certain job. To grant the wish you must first accept it. So when it appears hit R2 and then X to accept it. You can see what your current wishes are by checking the Promised Wishes tab in the Status Panel. Once you fulfill the requirements of the wish it disappears and you get Karma Points and Lifetime Happiness points. Do this 10 times and the trophy is yours
What Goes Around
Use a Karma Power.
To use a Karma Power, press select and then choose Karma Powers. Select the Karma Power that you want to use and choose a sim to use it on. Some have positive effects, such as Super Satisfy, which maximizs all of your selected sim's needs, and some have negative effects, such as Epic Fail, which makes your sim fail at love, their career and even simple household tasks.
Each Karma Power requires points from the karma meter in order to activate. At the start of your game, you are given a nearly full karma meter. You gain one karma point for fulfilling each wish and gain some each night at the midnight "Hour of Reckoning". Some powers are locked until you complete the associated challenge and purchase the power from the Rewards Shop.
Make a best friend.
This is pretty easy. Pick a sim (preferably one of the opposite sex so you can lead into You Never Forget Your First
and Woo Hoo!
) and simply chat to them. Be friendly and vary between the options you choose. As the relationship meter increases your friendship status will change from Acquaintance > Friend >Good Friend > BFF. It shouldn't take any longer than a day to get them to BFF status.Just don't be mean!
Sim About Town
Attend a town event.
Before you can attend a town event, you must first check what events are coming up by checking the newspaper. You will find out a specific day and time that upcoming events are on from it. Once you know where and when the event is happening, you just need to show up with your sim at the event and wait it out for your trophy
It’s a Date
Go on a date.
You need to be in a relationship before you can get this trophy. Once you are, go to the town map and select a restaurant to go to. Pick the Go here with option and choose the sim that you are in a relationship with as your dining partner. Once the date is finished you will get the trophy
You Never Forget Your First
Have a first kiss.
Leading on from the tips given in BFF
, start using some of the Romantic Conversation options. Flirt, compliment and flirt some more. You will quickly see that the 'mood' changes as the other sim begins to like you. When you see the option to Kiss, don't. Build up the foundation a bit more so you don't get shot down. After about 2 or 3 more Romantic Conversations go for it. The trophy will show up when you finish
To make 'Woo Hoo' you first need to be in a romantic relationship with another sim. Next you need to keep using the Romantic Social options on them to the point where they find you "extremely irresistible". Be sure to vary the options you use to get there quicker and you'll get the Woo Hoo option fairly soon. Once selected your sim will finish up the conversation and head to the nearest bed for some Woo Hoo
Climbing the Ladder
Reach level 5 in a career.
Not particularly hard. You can monitor how close you are to your next promotion in the Career Info tab in the Status Panel. Hit L1 until you get to the Career Info tab and here it displays your current level progress in the bar to the right (not your mood bar, the one to the left of that) and the things you can do to make it increase quicker. Things like being in a good mood going to work and being friends with your co-workers helps, as does leveling up the skill that is displayed. You can press Square to get more detailed info on what's needed of you in the Career Panel.
That New Car Smell
Buy a car.
Before you buy a car you must first buy a parking space to put your car in. The space itself costs §150, and can be put practically anywhere that it can fit, no restrictions. You then have to buy a car, any car will do (the cheapest one is §950) and place it in the parking space. Then simple exit the Build and Buy mode and return to Live Mode for the trophy
Note: In some careers you will receive a car as part of a promotion. This will not net you the trophy and you have to physically buy the car yourself for it to work
Not Twice, But 10 Times
Complete 10 Opportunities.
Opportunities are chances for your sims to advance either their career or skills by accomplishing different activities. Sims are given Career Opportunities at work, while Skill Opportunities may arrive at any time in the form of a phone call. You can also check the newspaper or computer for Special Opportunities. Check the Town Map to see where an available opportunity can be fulfilled. The map tag will have a halo around it.
Once a Sim accepts an opportunity, they cannot accept another opportunity of that type until the first has been accomplished, abandoned or failed. You can abandon an opportunity in the Wishes and Opportunities Panel. Once you complete your 10th opportunity you will receive the trophy
This is so Meta
Experience the Meta.
Experiencing the meta involves two tasks, one being watching 10 hours of TV, and the other playing 10 hours of computer games. Neither of these need to be consecutive hours. Once you complete one of them, a challenge complete notification will pop up, indicating that you can move on to the other. Once the other one is complete you get the trophy
I Double Dare Ya
Explore the catacombs after dark
The Catacombs are located at the top left of the town map, by the Stadium. To get this trophy, simply head up there while it's dark out (sometime around 12am-1am is a good time) and choose the Explore option when selecting the Catacombs itself. You can also carry this out via the town map - when it's dark go to your map and select the "Interact" option on the catacombs. Choose explore and your sim will go off and do it themselves while you can stay at home to manage things.
Write a book.
To write a book you first need some Writing skills. Do this by choosing the "Refine writing skill" on a computer. Build up your Writing skill to 1 and you will have the option to write a novel under the "Writing..." menu at a computer. Once you select a name for your book your sim will begin. Writing a book is a fairly long process and will take you many writing sessions to complete. To continue writing your book after stopping a session, go into the "Writing..." menu again and select the "Continue writing 'Book name'.You can see when how far along your sim is in their book by looking at the green bar above their head as they write. Once it fills completely the book is done.
When the book is finished your sim will send it off to the publisher and will receive royalties each week from it.
Throw an awesome party.
This trophy is easiest attained by a sim that has the Party Animal trait and/or the Legendary Host lifetime reward. While controlling said sim, select their cell phone as choose Throw Party. It is best that you have some sort of stereo set up, a lot of food and something fun that guests can play with, but not entirely necessary. Do your best to keep your guests happy throughout the party, and by the end of the party you should have the trophy.
Easy ways to help with this trophy is to have a buffet table ready before the guests arrive (buy it under the parties menu in Build & Buy mode) and to have a stereo playing some music. When people arrive greet them and start dancing. If you have multiple sims in your household take control of them and get them to dance with guests as well to help out. When a sim is leaving you'll get a notification in the top right with a short message from the sim who's leaving. If they "had a blast" then you're doing well so far. Keep track of the messages as each of the 8 guests leave. If all of them had a great time then the trophy should be yours
Partners in Crime
Become a partner of the Paragon Personal Private Charity Warehouse.
To get this trophy you must first accumulate §15,000. Head to the Paragon Personal Private Charity Warehouse (it's located in the top left sector of the town map) and interact with the building. You'll have the options of beginning the Criminal career and becoming a partner. Select become a partner and your sim will enter the building for discussions. Once you come out you'll be down §15,000 but will be up 1 trophy.
As a result of becoming a partner, you sim will be able to collect profits each week at the Warehouse. The more business's you become partners with the more profits you will collect each month
Design and save 20 styles using Create a Style.
To create a style, go into the Build and Buy menu, and press Triangle to bring up the cursor options. Scroll down and click on Create a Style. Here you can create custom styles for your furniture and accessories. Select a piece of furniture and mess around with the available options. When you've finished creating your style, save it and you'll be one step closer to the trophy. Once you create 20 of them, this trophy should pop up.
You can keep track of how many styles you've created by checking the challenge in the Challenges menu via the Select button
The Big Proposal
Before you get engaged, you must first be officially boyfriend/girlfriend with your future spouse. To do this you must first max out your relationship and get your future spouse to think you are extremely irresistible. Then go to the Romantic Social menu and select Propose Go Steady, this will make your relationship official. Next go back into the Romantic Social menu and select Propose Marriage. If you are still extremely irresistible you will get engaged.
Note: If you want to tie the knot completely then click on your fiance and select Private Wedding, or you can host a wedding party and select Get Married on your fiance during the party
Movin’ On Up
Move into a new home.
You can move house whenever you feel like it. To move, use your sim's cell phone to move to one of several other locations. Pick a nice house, and make sure you have enough money to afford it as well. Once you move in the trophy will appear.
Note: When moving you can keep all of your belongings by storing them in the Family Inventory or you can sell it all
Reach level 10 in a Skill.
There are 10 different skills for your sim to develop. You can obtain a skill by reading books, practicing the skill or taking a class at one of the buildings in town. Skills increase faster when your sim is in a good mood, so try to pick an activity that increases their fun levels as well.
Personally, I found the cooking skill the easiest to upgrade, especially once you buy the Tri-Forge Stove as it upgrades your cooking skill at an accelerated pace. Simply prepare/serve proper meals rather than having a quick mean and this will be yours pretty quickly.
You can check up on the progress of your skills in the Skill Journal. The Skill Journal is located under the Skills tab on the Status Panel. The Journal gives an overview of each of your Sim's skills, including it's current level, it's progress to the next level, and the opportunities associated with it. Below is a list of all of the skills in the game, where you can attend classes for each of them, and how you can upgrade them manually.
Note: All of your skills can also be upgraded by reading the appropriate book
||Run on a treadmill
Watch the Athletics Channel
||Talk to other sims
Practice in front of a mirror
||Bistro or Bakery
||Making/Preparing food at home
Watch the cooking channel
||Fishing at a pond
Watch the fishing channel
||Tend to trees and crops in your own garden
Watch the gardening channel
||Playing guitar at home
||Repairing and tinkering with items at home
Using a telescope
||Painting on a easel
||Writing books at a computer
Refining your writing skills at a computer
Once a Parent, Always a Parent
Welcome a child into the family.
Similar to Woo Hoo, you need to get your partner to think you are extremely irresistible and select the "Try for a baby" Romantic Social option. Your sims won't always get pregnant from this though, sometimes it fails. To know if you have successfully got your sim pregnant, look at her moodlets. If there is one there called Nauseous then you are indeed pregnant. You know it, but your sims won't know it for another few days.
The pregnancy will last about a week of in-game time, to the point where you'll get a notification telling you that your sim has gone into labor. Here you have the option of going to the hospital to have the baby or you can wait at home for it. Either way will net you the trophy
Become best friends with your boss and all of your co-workers.
To become best friends with your co-workers and boss, simply follow the guidelines set out in BFF
. To find out who exactly your co-workers and boss are go to the Relationships Tab in the Status Panel. Press Square and then press Right on the D-Pad until you reach the final tab. There will be your (one) co-worker and your boss. It shouldn't take longer than a day of chatting to get each one to BFF level.
To help with this trophy, you can edit your sim's attitude at work each day. To do this, take control of them when they are at work (press triangle and select them from the household's sims) and press circle. Navigate to the At Work action and press X on it to choose from some options. Finally select Get to Know Work Buddies for some added friendship
Be Excellent To Each-other
Reach the maximum potential Karma.
It is very easy to get this at the beginning of the game. When you start, your sim's karma level is pretty high, so as long as you don't use any karma powers for a few days and fulfill a few wishes, this will come to you very quickly. However, if you decided to use all of your Karma Powers as soon as you realized it was there (and in turn depleting your Karma Level/Points) it will be a bit harder to get this. The main thing really is to be patient. Every night at the midnight "Hour of Reckoning" you will either receive some Karma Points for your good deeds throughout the day, or be struck down in the form of a random "negative" karma power, so be good! You also get Karma Points for fulfilling wishes, one Karma Point per fulfilled wish to be exact, but these build up over time and with the "Hour of Reckoning" bonus, your Karma Level will be full in a relatively short amount of time.
Just don't spend any Karma Points, or be fantastically mean (unless it's a wish) when trying for this trophy and it will come to you soon
Complete a Lifetime Wish.
A lifetime wish is a life goal for your sim. It can vary from reaching level 10 in a career path, or reaching level 10 in a skill(s). You choose your lifetime wish when creating your sim. It is heavily influenced by the traits you choose at the beginning of the game, but you do have a final say as to what it is before saving your sim and moving into a house. There will be a choice of 5 Lifetime wishes to choose from depending on your traits, so pick one and this trophy will pop once it's finished.
Below is a list of all of the Lifetime Wishes and what you need to do to complete them.

Home is Where the Simoleons Are
Raise your household’s value to §35,000 or more.
Your household's value increases as you add items to it through the Build and Buy menu. Obviously buying more expensive items increases the value more, but simply adding the odd necessity here and there will work over time. It is easier if you live in a bigger house as you have more space for your possessions and the starting value is much higher.
One thing I have noticed is that sometimes if you call over a technician to fix something they will take out their laptop and leave it on a table as they fix the broken item. You can pick up the laptop and either sell it for funds for new stuff, or move it into your sims inventory for the duration that the technician is there. When he leaves place the laptop somewhere and your household's value will go up by about §5,000
Not Dead Yet
Resurrect a Sim.
Before you get this trophy, you need the Divine Intervention karma power, and a sim in your family that has died from old age. Next you need to find your dead sim's ghost, which is most often found at the Catacombs, and use the Divine Intervention karma power on it by going to the karma page, pressing X on the power and then pressing X on the ghost
Unlock every Good Karma Power by purchasing them with Challenge Points.
You get challenge points from completing challenges. Nothing hard there. Different challenges get you different amounts of challenge points. You can see how many challenge points you have by going into the Challenges and Rewards section of the select menu. Your total challenge points are displayed at the top. From here, you can also unlock/purchase the Karma powers necessary for the trophy. Hit Square to bring up a new menu with a list of available purchases.
The Karma Powers you need to buy are:
: Requires I Double Dare Ya
Stroke of Genius
: Requires You Never Forget Your First
: Requires Home is Where the Simoleons Are

But it’s Inflammable!
Extinguish a Sim on fire.
Be sure to save your game before doing this trophy!
There are a few ways to get a sim on fire. The first and easiest is to have a sim with a very low level cooking skill make a meal, or one with a low handiness skill to attempt to repair something. While this will set your sim on fire, when it happens is unpredictable. The second, and preferred method is to use the Firestorm karma power as you have more control over the situation. Before you start though, be sure to remove any fire alarms that you might have, and have a sim with the Brave trait available for use.
Remove all AI characters and doors from the house, leaving your sims and the sim with the Brave trait. Use Firestorm, and should it start a nice fire move all of your expendable sims towards it ie. everybody but the Brave one. If not then use the karma power again and keep trying until a solid fire starts. Sooner or later on of the sims will catch fire, so select your brave sim and move the cursor over the sim that is on fire and select the Extinguish Sim action
Become a public menace.
To get this trophy you need to complete 5 different tasks with the same sim
It has come to light that you don't necessarily need to complete these with the same sim. You can have multiple sims contribute to this trophy as every sim in a household contributes to the challenge on which this trophy is based.
- Return a stolen object
A kleptomaniac sim will randomly steal something when out of the house. You'll know when they do because you'll get a notification about it. To return the item click on the mailbox while in control of the sim who stole it and select "Return Stolen Item..."
- Be mean 10 times
Simply be mean to other sims. You'll probably get this while getting some enemies.
- Steal 20 items with a kleptomaniac sim
Your kleptomaniac sim will randomly steal things while out of the house. As far as I know there isn't anything you can do make this happen more regularly, so just ignore it and let it happen by itself in due time.
- Become enemies with 15 sims
Simply be mean to other sims repeatedly until they become your enemy. If you're at their house you may be told to leave but you can come back the following day.
- Steal candy from a baby 5 times
With an evil / kleptomaniac sim click on a baby and select "Steal candy"
Use the Epic Fail Karma Power on 13 unsuspecting sims not in your family.
The Epic Fail karma power costs 25 karma points per use and basically makes any unsuspecting sim fail at love, their career and basic tasks for the duration that it is active. To use it, hit select and go into the Karma Powers menu. From there navigate to the Epic Fail karma power, press X and choose your victim
After doing this to 13 sims the trophy is yours.
Note: You must wait for the Epic Fail karma power to wear off one sim before using it on another
Start 5 romantic relationships.
There are several ways to get this. Number one is to have a sim initiate a romantic relationship with another sim, dump them and move onto another 5 times. Number two is to have a sim initiate a romantic relationship with a sim, get engaged and dump them before doing the same with another sim and eventually simply having a romantic relationship with a third. Number three is to have multiple sims have carry out option Number one, or option Number 2.
Fit For a King
Prepare a perfect meal.
This is much harder than just upgrading your Cooking skill to level 10. This can be pretty random as to how and when you get it, but having a level 10 cooking skill, a good stove (Festus 44, and upgraded to produce better meals) and good ingredients. Having the Natural Cook and Perfectionist traits also help. The meal you choose to cook doesn't matter, all of them can be made at a perfect level. Then it is simply a matter of making meals until you get a perfect one.
Buy out a commercial property in town.
Before owning a commercial property, you must first become partners with it. This is simply selecting the store on the town map and choosing the become partners option, at a cost of course. Costs range from §6,000 to §15,000. Once you have done that, you need to build up more cash and select the property that you are already partners with, in the same way you did to become partners in the first place, and select the buy out property option. This will cost a lot more §§§ that becoming partners did, so keep saving as the option won't appear unless you have enough money to buy it.
The cheapest property to buy out is the Scowned! Bakery, which will run up a tab of §24,000 in total.
Get an insurance check for over §15,000 after using the Firestorm Karma Power.
Before you attempt this trophy, you're going to need the Firestorm karma power, and a lot of expensive stuff - somewhere in the region of §50,000 to §60,000 should be enough. Next you want to group all of these objects together so if one catches fire it will spread quickly. Finally select the Firestorm karma power and your insurance check should be pretty high once finished
Be sure to save your game before doing this trophy!
Tip From DAVEYHASSELHOFF
- Delete ALL your secondary saves in the XMB.
- Load up your Sims and move them to a Small unfurnished house.
- Remove the inside walls and fill the house with the most expensive bed, and line all the walls with the flat screen TVs.
- Make sure all your Sims are outside, then REMOVE ALL THE DOORS!
- Cast a Firestorm AND DO NOT FAST FORWARD!!!. Use Firestorm as much as you need to keep the burn going but whatever you do play on Normal speed.
- I had the trophy glitch and did this and got the trophy on the first try and didnt have to start over!
Grow a perfect plant.
A simple but long trophy. Get a few fruit/seeds (4-5, all the same kind) and plant them in your garden buy going to the Build and Buy menu and placing the on the grass from the Sim Inventory section. Then get your sim to plant it by selecting the seed and "plant here". Be sure to tend to the seeds each day until they are ready for harvesting. Once harvested, plant the new seeds/fruit and start again. As you repeat the process, your gardening skill increases, and with that the harvested fruit does too, which finally in turn contributes to the quality of the plant.
Catch a perfect fish.
This trophy requires some skill and a lot of luck. Essentially, you just need to keep fishing. That's it. You can read skill books to increase your skill level to max, but it is much quicker to go fishing instead, as you don't need level 10 fishing skill to catch a perfect fish. I caught my perfect fish at level 5, and other people caught it at about level 7, it's just about patience and luck.
Happiness… It Stacks
Get 5 positive moodlets at the same time on one Sim.
Moodlets are displayed as icons consisting of different images on coloured backgrounds in the far left tab of your Status Panel. Red backgrounds represent negative mood effects, green indicates positive and blue is neutral. You get positive moodlets for things like having fun, being clean after a shower, being in a comfortable chair etc. Negative moodlets come from things like being dirty, having a dirty house, being tired etc. Just keep your sim happy and this will come to you naturally.
Build a home of at least §350,000 property value on a large lot.
Before you even attempt this trophy, you must first accumulate §350,000. Once that is done, you need to buy a large lot ie. one that is worth upwards of §100,000. To move house, select your cell phone and choose move from the available options.
Once you've bought the new lot furnish it with a tonne of expensive items. The decorative items can run up a big tab very quickly so you should focus on them. Be sure to buy everything at once as the value of your property depreciates over time
Complete Lifetime Wish before becoming a Young Adult.
Once you get a child focus on building one skill like logic using the chess table. Keep at it until the toddler progresses to the child stage and disable aging / set aging to epic. As your skill increases you'll eventually be offered the Chess Legend wish. Accept it and fulfill the goals of getting to level 10 in the logic skill and beating the chess grand master.
Other ways to complete the trophy would be to gain enough lifetime happiness points and buy the "change lifetime wish" reward. Pick a wish that is easy to get (like having 20 friends) and get your sim to simply go around and meet people. Coupling this with the "long distance friend" perk will allow you to ignore friends after meeting them as you'll always be friends with them then.
You can keep track on how old your sim is getting by hitting Square and viewing their personality tab. Here you can see a bar representing how close your sim is to their next life stage ie. Young Adult. Set your sim's lifespan to be epic, or disable ageing altogether to give yourself significantly more time to complete this.
Gain 250,000 Lifetime Happiness on one Sim.
When sims fulfil wishes, they earn Lifetime Happiness points. To see how many points you are getting from a particular wish, go to the Promised Wishes tab in the Status Panel. There is a list of all the wishes you have promised to your sim. The Lifetime Happiness you will gain from each one is shown to the right of the wish's name in brackets. These points will gradually build up over time. The only way to progress towards this quickly it to never decline a wish, ever. If you have too many wishes promised when another one pops up (you can only promise 4 at a time) pick the ones that carry the most points and are easy to achieve, or you can leave the wish as pending and try to complete a promised one before the pending one expires
You don't need to have 250,000 points at once, so long as you have totaled 250,000 it will unlock.
Complete 50 Challenges.
Complete 100 Challenges.
Complete 150 Challenges.
There are upwards of 250 challenges for you to choose from. They are split into 3 categories: Life, Feats and Collection. The Life category consists of simple challenges such as attending a game at the stadium. They are not hard and will be completed fairly quickly. There are a few lifetime wishes/challenges here but you don't need to do them for this trophy. Feats involve upgrading skills and getting promotions in different career paths. These take longer than Life challenges, and will take more effort as well. The Collection challenges involve getting several things that are the same, or are similar. It can be something like catching 5 bugs, or learning all of the recipes.
This trophy is best to be left to last with Miracle Worker
and True Wealth
as you will be constantly completing challenges as you play the game and go for other trophies
Complete 100 Wishes.
Complete 1,000 Wishes.
Wishes are like short-term, everyday goals for your sim. At any given time, you can promise up to 4 wishes to a sim, and you can dismiss them as you please. Promising a wish means that you will lock that wish as a focus for your sim's life. If you/your sim fulfills that wish, they earn Lifetime Happiness points (see True Wealth
) and Karma.
Press the R2 button to open the wish pull-down menu, highlight a wish and press X to promise it. As said previously, you can cancel/dismiss a wish any time you want without any penalties. You can do this by highlighting the wish you want to cancel and pressing Triangle on it. You can see what wishes you have currently promised by going to the Wishes tab in the Status Panel.
This trophy will be the most time consuming one in the game, but it isn't hard by any means. I think it's best to just ignore this trophy until the very end, as you will be gradually completing wishes as you go for all of the other trophies. By the time you complete all of the other trophies, you will have a good portion of this completed without even trying
