TSR 的 BlackGarden 的Hand-on經驗翻譯!
最近很多地方都有 Hand-on 的遊戲資訊出來!
所謂的 Hand-on 就是，玩家自己去玩的自己去摸索!
真不知道台灣何時才會有我們自己的 Hand-on 經驗啊!
她寫了些比較 detail 的經驗，例如每個步驟有哪些!
因為還滿有趣的，所以就想和大家分享喔! [ ] 是Amy的加註!
Today I was lucky enough to be invited to London to experience The Sims 3 hands on. After a few formalities, we (I think there were 9 of us in all, including two dragged-along partners - one belonging to me) were allowed to get our mitts on the game.
今天我[一樣，是BlackGarden，不是Amy。我也很想有Hand on的機會啊! 或是再去倫敦!]很幸運的可以被邀請到倫敦親自去玩了模3。在一些正式的問候之後，我們(大概有九個人吧! 還有兩個一起被拖來的朋友)就開始玩了遊戲了。
Please, bear in mind, the game we played was a pre-alpha build, and certain features may not be present in, or may differ from the final release. If you don't want to read potential spoilers about The Sims 3, don't read this!
請注意，我們玩的遊戲是 pre-alpha版的[就是還未量產前的版本]，所以我等一下敘述的遊戲體驗及功能可能不會包含在最後的遊戲裡面喔! 而且如果你想在買遊戲後才了解遊戲的內容，請不要在往下閱讀了!
I dove straight into Create-A-Sim. A lot of the questions that were being asked on the EA UK forums were about different age groups, so I needed to create a family with a variety of age groups.
In the new Create-A-Sim is you can spend as short or as long a time customising each Sim as you like. You can go in, put a name in (you can choose a surname separately for each Sim), and hit the randomise button a few times, or you can get right into the details of their facial features and the patterns of their clothes. The great thing about the way this has been designed is that you don't need to go into all these details unless you want to.
你可以花很短或是很長的時間在Create-A-Sim[國外會縮成 CAS喔!]，來將你的小人做任何程度的改造。當你一進去，你必須給小人依個名字(現在可以在同一個家庭裡，創造不同姓氏的小人。[我想很多人應該會喜歡這個功能吧!]) 你可以按幾次隨機選擇就完成了你的小人，或是修改臉部的每個細節和衣服的樣式。這個新的CAS的好處在於，如果你不想要，你完全不用花時間在修改人物上。
A couple of new things here:
* As some have said, the default skin tones are red, green, blue, and also three shades of "natural" colours (each of which you can slide from light to dark).
* You can choose almost all the clothing types by separate tops, bottoms & shoes as well as whole outfits, like you can for everyday wear in TS2 (except with shoe choices too...) and you can set accessories for each outfit separately.
所以的衣物幾乎都可以從 上衣、下半身的衣物和鞋子[有影片有介紹個鞋子的選項，讓人很幸奮呢!]，也有整套的衣服，就像和模2一樣。(不過模2沒有鞋子的選擇。) 而且每一套衣服都可以搭配不同的首飾喔! [耶!!!!]
Once your Sim's appearance is customised, it's time to set up their personality and lifetime goal. You can choose from the list of traits, which I won't bother repeating here as the list already exists on lots of other sites, and based on those traits (if your Sim is a Young Adult or older) the game presents you with five lifetime goals to choose from. These range from things like reaching the top of a career to maximising a skill and doing something with that skill (eg. maximising logic and becoming a chess champion). Finally you set up your Sim's favourites: their favourite music, food, and colour.
當你的小人的外表設定好了之後，你就可以選擇她們的人格特性和終身目標。你可以從很長的一個列表中選你要的人格特性。這裡我就不一一列出了，因為你應該在很多網站中看過這個資料。[Amy的部落格裡面也有喔! 去 The Sims 3的文章分類下找喔!] 而且依據你小人的人格特性(如果你的小人是準成人或是成人)，遊戲會讓你選擇5個終身目標。
這些終身目標有像是達到執業的最高等級、所有的技能都到最高級、或是利用某個技能來做某事(例如: 邏輯達到最高級和變成一個西洋棋冠軍等!)。最後你將會選擇小人的"最愛": 他們最愛的音樂、食物和顏色。
Again, I'll repeat this point: if you can't be bothered to set all this up, you don't have to. You can just randomise each Sim and then all you have to do is give them a name. That will also randomise their favourites and traits.
So, once you've created all the Sims you want, you set up their relationships. This works the same way it does in TS2. No way of setting up more "complicated" relationships here, like step-parents. The game shows you a lovely portrait of your family, and you can "ok" them to go back to the neighbourhood and move them in.
當你創造了所有你想要的小人後，你就可以來決定這些小人的親屬關係了! 這個和模2的方式是一樣的! 並沒辦法將小人們的關係變複雜，例如: 繼母。然後遊戲就會幫這些小人拍一張美麗的家庭合照。你選擇了 "OK"就會進入到社區，然後幫小人搬到新家了。
On the neighbourhood view you'll notice you have loads of space. There are plenty of empty lots with lots of different sizes, and plenty of pre-built houses lying empty. Not being able to place new lots was a concern for me, but there's so much space that this honestly won't be a problem!
The starting money for the family of 6 that I created was 24000 Simoleans. I only created one family so I have no idea if this is the standard starting money.
So I moved my family into a house and got into some gameplay. First thing I noticed? They're independent. They don't need me. Straight away they start to amuse themselves in ways that suit their traits. The "evil" uncle has gone onto the Internet to troll forums. The "athletic" father has wandered off to the gym. The "friendly" child gets on his brand new child's bike and rides to a park to meet friends. The mother with "commitment issues" is chatting up the neighbours. The "family oriented" teen is teaching her little sister to walk. And all of this without me telling them to do a thing.
所以我就將這個家庭搬到一個房子裡來開始試試遊戲。 我注意到的第一件事情是小人們非常的"獨立自主"。這些小人其實並不需要我。一進到家庭，他們開始做一些符合他們人格特性的一些是來娛樂自己。那個"邪 惡"的叔叔上網來發表了一些不適當的言論! "運動家"的爸爸就走去了健身中心。"友善"的小孩騎上了他的新腳踏車到公園去認識朋友。"無法對人做承諾"的媽媽開始和鄰居聊起天了。"以家庭為中心 的"青少年在教她的妹妹走路。這些小人在沒有我的指示下自動自發的做起這些事。
Getting a job has been made much easier. You simply move out to the map view by clicking the map view button (or using the shortcut which I think was either ctrl+M or just M), and locate the building you want to work in. They're shown on the map view with the symbol for the career, so they're easy to locate.
找工作變得簡單了。你只需要按"地圖視野"的按鈕(或是使用熱鍵，我想是 ctrl + M 或是 M就可以了)，然後找到你想要小人工作的執業的建築物就可以了。這些建築物將會以"職業"的標記出現在大社區的地圖上。所以會很好找喔!
The career tracks are: 有以下的這些職業
Criminal, military, political, medical, athletic, culinary, science, law enforcement, music
And there are also part-time jobs, which you can have from teen through to elder, even as adults or young adults (a great choice for busy parents!):
Bookstore clerk, grocery store clerk, spa receptionist, spa specialist, grave digger
Socialising has also been updated. As you talk to another Sim, some information about them and what they think of you appears in the upper left. If they have any relationship to you (husband, brother-in-law, ex-husband), it'll show this in the top left corner too. As you perform interactions with them it'll give you an idea of what they thought of that interaction. If your Sim, Sim B, flirts with someone who has no interest in them, Sim A, a message might appear like "Sim A thinks Sim B is being weird". If you tell them a joke, you might be "being amusing"... if you flirt and they are interested you might be "being flirty", or even "being irresistible", depending on their relationship level and level of attraction to you.
當 你的小人和其他小人做些互動時，你會知道其他小人的感想。如果你的小人A和對小人A不感興趣的小人B調情，就會出現"小人B覺得小人A很奇怪"等的訊息。 如果你的小人對其他小人說笑話，可能會出現"狠有趣"的訊息。如果小人調情，而對方有興趣時就會出現"被調情"或是"富有吸引力的"等的訊息出現。這些都 會依據小人和對方的關係程度和對方被你的小人吸引的程度而有所改變。
There are loads of great new interactions which convey more subtle ranges of emotion than the interactions in The Sims 2. For example, if your Sim has been flirting with another Sim for a while, they can "confess attraction" to tell them how they feel about them. Then if that goes well, maybe you'd want to ask if they'd like to "go steady". This is no longer an option just for teens, adults can go steady too now.
現在有很多新的有趣的互動可以比模2還能表達小人的情緒。例如: 你的小人和其他小人調情了一陣子後。他們可以向對方告白。如果告白順利，小人可以要求 go steady![就是表示兩人不在交其他男女朋友了，認定對方了!] 這已經不再是青少年專有的選項了，成人也可以喔!
Pregnancy is much improved. As before, you can try for baby in bed, or in the science labs, depending on what you prefer. Either way, hearts fall around everywhere... and if you hear the baby chimes, well done, you're pregnant! Cue feeling ill, back pain, and cravings. My pregnant Sim had a craving for dim sum and canned soup!
懷孕也有所進步了! 和以前一樣，受孕的地方有床上或是實驗室，就看你的喜歡。不管是那種方式，愛心都會像雨滴一樣掉落! 如果你聽到鈴響，就表示小人懷孕了。懷孕時會有的症狀有想吐、腰酸背痛和有想吃某種東西的慾望。我的孕婦小人想吃"飲茶的點心"和"罐頭湯"。
If your Sim gets back pains during pregnancy, her partner can give her a massage, or she can go to the spa and pay for a massage. There are three types of massage available, some more expensive than others.
But being pregnant can also give your Sim a positive moodlet, so pregnancy is certainly not all bad!
24 hours after falling pregnant, your Sim "realises" she is pregnant, and changes to maternity wear... you peer at their belly... it doesn't seem to have grown. It will grow gradually over the next 48 hours. Better tell your husband you're pregnant before you blow up like a balloon.
That's right, I think my absolute favourite new interaction is "announce pregnancy". You can go to friends, family, and... don't forget your partner... and announce that you're pregnant to them. Just hope they react well... I didn't test this but I wonder how someone who "dislikes children" would react!
沒錯，我想我最喜歡的新的互動之一就是"宣佈懷孕"。可以對著小人的朋友、家人、當然不要忘了小人的先生宣佈小人懷孕了喔! 當然希望他們能夠有好的反應喔! 我並沒有時間測試，但是我很想知道如果某個"不喜歡小孩"的小人會怎麼反應![不知道可以可以辦baby shower]
Hopefully your partner reacted well. Maybe he'll go and buy you a pregnancy book to help you through your pregnancy. You can carry on with life as normal until the baby's born (except, of course, you get time off work). When the baby's ready to be born you'll get a pop-up in the top right corner of the screen telling you so, and advising you to get your Sim home for a home birth, or to the hospital. I decided to go to the hospital, as obviously that's not something I've seen before. Again, all you do is go to map view, find the hospital, click on it, and choose to go there to give birth. You can also just click the hospital building if you're nearby anyway.
希望你小人的先生能夠對懷孕的消息有好的反應。這樣他可能買一 本懷孕的書來給小人，幫助她度過這個時期。小人可以像沒有懷孕時的一樣生活(當然不需要去工作。)。當嬰兒要出生時，會有個視窗從右上角跳出來告訴你。而 且會建議你讓小人回家在家生小孩，或是到醫院生孩子。我決定讓小人去醫院生小孩，因為我以前沒看過這樣的方式。這時你就按"地圖視野"，然後找醫院。點醫 院，會有一個"生小孩"的選項。當然如果你的小人就在醫院附近，可以直接就點選醫院喔!
Ready for the cute bit? My Sim's husband was sat in the park reading a book, and he got up and ran to the hospital, and his interaction showed up as "be with mother". Awwwwww! He was a family-oriented Sim, maybe that had some bearing on his behaviour.
On that lovely note, I think I'll leave this blog for today... I have many more notes which I haven't written about, but these were all the main things that struck me as I played. Again, if you have any questions, comment on this blog post, in my guestbook, or PM me. I might have the answer or be able to remember :)
聊了這個溫馨的事件，我今天就先寫到這裡了。我還有很多筆記我還沒有發表，但是今天的這些對我來說是非常的映像深刻的! 如果你有任何問題或是意見請留言在我的留言板喔! 如果我記得我會回覆你喔!
