INTO THE FUTURE


The Apocalypse now threatens not only your own world, but the entire future history of the Sims! Can you avert disaster and restore the utopian future for your descendants?

SET UP

When you start the game, a time portal will be placed on your lot.You may not touch it. It falls under all the usual restrictions; in order to move it at all, you need to lift Athletic; to put it on the roof would require Architect, etc. However, as you didn't place it, it need not be in the 8x8 area despite Politics. It is considered "weather resistant" if you have Seasons (you need not put a roof over it). You may not interact with the portal until you are able to travel to the future (see below).


TRAVELING TO THE FUTURE

Travelling to the future is not considered "normal" travel; you do not have to clear Politics, Espionage, or Forensics to travel in time. Traveling to the future is restricted by Alien Technology. Any methods open up future travel for your sims. There is an ITF method to clear Alien Technology but you are not required to use this method.

LONG LIVED SIMS

Unlike travel to University or World Adventures locations, your Sims do age in the future. If you have a Sim with an extended lifespan note that the usual rules for long lived Sims apply. See Supernatural Sims for details.


NEW CAREERS

The new career Astronomy has two branches that can be used in the alternative Alien Technology lift.
