    If you use the tab camera mode in Foxbury and go under the map you can find some unused objects.

    What skill level do you need to qualify for distinguished degrees?
    I can't tell you for SURE, but I believe it was about level 4-5 for whatever related skills apply to the particular distinguished degree. For my particular case, my Sim was taking Economics classes at UBrite - she raised her Charisma, Logic, and Research/Debate skills during two or three semesters. Once those skills got to about levels 4 or 5 and the end of the semester occurred, my Sim was prompted to sign up for new classes. In that pop up window, I changed the University to Foxbury, and chose Economics and the Distinguished Degree was available for her :)

    It didn't, actually! Funnily, my husband sim died by electrocution and the same Grim Reaper that lived in my house floated upstairs and reaped him. Then he went back downstairs and listened to music. (Don't worry, my sim was a virtuoso Spellcaster, so it was nothing to bring him back)

    Upon my sim being in e-sports and her team winning games she had came back with some power sipping posters, gaming chair and power sipping drinks.

    Power sipping Classic and Power sipping INFERNO
    Both increase the odds at your sim winning video game tournaments. The latter having a bit more of an effect.

    Drinking these back to back your sim will get a dazed moodlet called 'Power Dipping?'

    I've read that with a degree your sim starts at level 7 in a career. My sim graduated yesterday, not a distinguished degree but with a GPA A. He started as a Judge level 8 :o I wanted to see if studying distinguished or not has an impact on the level you start on. But probably not?

    Also, in his last term my sim started dating Lilith Pleasant and as he graduated she graduated, too.

    That's because there's no level 6-7 Judge/PA career (and selecting base branch just ignores your degree). In other careers where this is possible you'd start at level 6 (normal degree) or 7 (distinguished OR honors) while for level 8 you need a distinghuished degree with honors.

    When using the ICYA chest outside of University it comes in nice neutral colours and you can place a Tv on it! (which is great because I love having a chest but i'm often short on space fer one, lol).

    Also, I'm not sure if this is a feauture or a bug but when you graduate while being in the "Secret Society" (I forget what it's called; I only figured out how to join on the very last day, lol :sweat_smile: ) you continue to get visited by sprites.

    Sprites staying after graduation was exactly what I was hoping for. Let's hope it is a feature and not a bug that will get fixed.

    Did you know that roommates are super detailed in this pack.

    My sim lived alone in her house decided to get a roommate. The roommate started hitting on her every day blowing kisses from time to time. She was sitting at her computer desk and he took out his guitar and played a romantic song for her. 1 week later asked her out and she said yes.

    All this happened without me telling them to do this lol. (I don’t have any mods)

    Love this. I like how each roommate has their own distinct behaviors and personalities. One roommate I had was an unemployed slob, and he had a habit of standing around oddly watching my sim. But every time something broke, he repaired it so I'm keeping him around. Lol.

    My sim’s roommate would sleep all day long. I always laughed and called her lazy- that is, until my sim was exhausted at 2 pm after pulling an all-nighter and went to sleep in the bed right next to her.

    My Sim's parents came to visit her and her brother who are both in Uni. Her female roommate flirted with her mother (blew kisses at her). Her mother responded and flirted back and her father saw it and became angry. He stomped out of the room. Her mother left home shortly afterwards. The angry father stayed much later and I didn't even know he was still there until I saw the same roommate flirting with the father as well, and he seemed to like it, too.
    There is definitely going to be drama with these extra flirty dorm mates, be careful if your Sim has a girlfriend or a boyfriend who comes to visit the dorm. ;)

    My other Sim has a very sad roommate. He's constantly sad, he even wakes up feeling sad every morning, holding his head down while walking. I don't think I've ever seen him not sad. My Sim tries to cheer him up, but he doesn't seem to get any better. He doesn't even have a gloomy trait. He seems to be one of the extreme personalities at the dorm. I'm excited to know how many more of these personalities there are.

    If you know you will be spending Winterfest at college, be sure to drag a pile of presents into your sim's inventory before leaving. You can place it down in your dorm and Father Winter will bring you gifts. I also didn't have class on the holiday, but it didn't extend the semester, so be sure to do some extra studying instead.

    Another cool thing is if you reach the top level of say e-sports career while in university you get a pop-up saying you should just drop out of college and play professionally with a signing bonus (which is completely optional, i said no, lol) and when you leave college (graduating or dropping out) you can get a high level position in the e-sports branch of tech career (you don't get that signing bonus if you wait till after college to join tho, lol).

    Someone already mentioned that the roommates will bring their own decorations and cameras to the dorms - well, for sims that are broke and need money - your sim can put all the roommates stuff in their inventory and sell it! Thief w/o the trait!

    My did you know fact is that a teenager sim can apply early and they get a random life aspiration, I’m not completely sure how this works because my main sim was away in university and by the time she came back her brother had this painter lifetime trait and could apparently apply for university early.

    Yep. All it said was "Ukupanipo (her roommate) just became the boyfriend of Madison" I didn't even click to him for any socials. I was looking at her skills at the time and it just popped up LOL.

    Heh, I don't know, I think they probably forgot about these objects. I don't think the game uses them for anything.

    Someone mentioned if you go out, the roommate may tag along and a message will say something along the lines of “so, where are we going”.

    I hope someone makes a picture thread soon, I don’t want to make it, but would love to see pictures.

    And all of this time I thought the 'roomie' was saying this to my celebrity Sim, just because they became friends. LOL Okay, 'so, where are we going?' ;)

    I like playing with retail, so I have a Christmas shop that sells Christmas trees and supplies including gifts. I can send sims out shopping that way for more realism. :)

    Did you know that if you put easels in the dorm other sims will paint on them and when your sim sells it they get the money. And if you go to all the buildings you can, then you can add whatever you want. I added easels, exercise bot, radio, double bed in one room etc. The double will assign someone to sleep with your sim but they won't sleep together. When my sim goes to bed the other leaves it. You can assign it only to yours. There's a lot you can do, just do it BEFORE your sim moves into a university. So change the building inside, than have your sim enroll.
