OK, a few locations for minor pets:
Turtles - near Celestial Pools, in the heart crater, near the house closest to the round boulders in the main crater and near Gamma Gardens and park.

Snakes - at the corner of the first body of water under the lower waterfall (on the side with the red and purple trees), in the heart crater between the house and the lake.

Rodents - between Solstice Stones and Hot Springs, if you are looking at the lower waterfall: to the left, the road makes a right angled turn - on either side of the road at this bend.

Lizards - on the side road just before you get to Oasis Shoreline, the cemetery, near the heart house and between Solstice Stones and Hot Springs.

Birds - Crater lagoon, between Nazca Lines Park & Big Bang Bistro, between Bliss Pavilion & Pools and Aphelion Art Gallery, outside the Sunset Valley dome, in the heart crater, kelvin Pavilion, near the Community Garden and on Oasis Shoreline.

If people are designing buildings, we need a futuristic fire station, salon, consignment store, and junkyard -- I put in the ones from Ambitions, but they don't go with the rest of the decor.

I really like the library -- it reminds me of the one from university.

Hm... I might try one of these, after my modern future build is done. :)

Hey guys I'm taking an extended hiatus... again. I'm out of ideas to build houses and I don't have as much fun designing homes like I used to; it feels more like a chore. So that's where I'll be, I will probably be back sometime. :P

Thanks for the minor pet locations, Twinmum! I'm trying out the Zoologist LTW (catch 20 minor pets in the wild) for the first time in Lunar Lakes since the LTW would give me a specific goal while still exploring. I will say that after watching the video, I didn't realize the portals were actual rabbit holes for all the careers except science, which is in the spaceship. I guess that leaves a lot of room for residential lots, but I like getting new rabbit holes (which we didn't get any of) to use in other worlds.

They eat the fruit and gain a skill level in any random skill.  I'm guessing the tree will end up being off limits for challenges, but of course, that's Metro's call.   

maybe, maybe not. Metro has already said that for this year, if it's EA content and you are not entering a cheat, then it's fine. I guess it will depend on the individual challenge.

That will likely depend on how it actually works and would probably depend on the challenge.  There are occasionally a few EA content things that are off limits in challenges.

Yeah, I want this now.  :P

I've been doing some testing on the Tree of Prosperity. Once you buy it, you can imbue it to make it harvestable straight away. If you do that, you get to pick which fruit you want - if it's the first time, you can pick any of the four (Harvest, Mind, Soul or Body). If it has already been harvested before, you can't choose the last one picked. You don't have to imbue the tree, it will come to life on it's own after about 4 hours of being picked. When it comes into bloom on it's own, the fruit is random and changes every four hours.
When you pick and eat the fruit you gain skill. The amount you gain varies, I gained anywhere from less than a full skill point to 2 whole skill points at times.
I tested for about 4 Sim days with 6 trees and these are the skills you can gain. There may be more skills, but I didn't see any others.

Fruit of Harvest (green) - cooking, fishing and gardening

Fruit of the Mind (blue) - charisma, inventing, writing, handiness and logic

Fruit of the Soul (purple) - writing, painting, sculpting, photography and guitar

fruit of the Body (pink) - athletic, handiness, martial arts and riding

I'll have to admit, the pics and those skill trees are changing my mind about buying it.

The Tree sounds very cool, it's just a pity the World doesn't look that great to me. I really don't know why though, it just doesn't draw me in. I'm sure that once filled with Themed Builds by the Builders that have it then it may looks 10 times better.

I'm thinking of getting this with the money I'll be getting for my birthday. Sadly I'll miss the sale by a few days...

Can anyone tell me how many children there are?

I can't find my list at the moment (it's early am for me) but according to the big list that Marian gave on page 5 there are 6 teens, 4 children and 3 toddlers.

I thank you both. I'll take a read through the list to see if it is worth it.

I'm liking this town but I find it strange that my Sims want to go to China/Egypt/France when they're on another planet.  Technically they can't get there from here right?

OK, so now I'm going to buy it. I went on a simpoint buying spree over christmas when the simpoints were 40% off and have a ton to use.
Here's an idea for a challenge for this world: Max all skills by using the tree and/or books. How long do you think it would take?

Just bought it today and took a curious look around at the families, community centers and some of the houses. Most houses are very small and due to the weird shapes can be a problem for furniture inside.

I'm surprised they didn't add some cool future furniture. These space age houses look kind of funny with Victorian furniture in some. Guess the transplants wanted a reminder of earth.

Love the tree! Using it in my present game until I start one in Lunar Lakes, and my sim went from 0 in gardening to 2 and learned inventing and phitigraphy. This is definitely a plus to the game, even if you don't play the town!

They did add a couple. There's 3 new chairs (office, regular, dining) a couch, a door and a dining room table and a couple other things. It's a shame they didn't add more though. :(

Oh dear, oh dear. What with the new expansion, More Magic sets, this world and my inability to buy SimPoints directly from the site (I have to buy the 1000-point packs which are more expensive), I think I'm going to be very, very poor soon. Oh EA, why do you tempt meeeee???

It also turns yellow if you leave it alone, that one is called 'Abundance'. I suspect it gives you any skill when it's on that one as I received fishing.

Can you have more than triplets? It makes me wonder if it would be possible if you had a fertility treatment, and listened to kids radio, and watched kids tv, and THEN ate the fruit of abundance!

If anyone has spare points after buying this world, you could get the future shock living and kitchen sets - they would suit this world perfectly. I also think my Space Pod would fit in well here! Here's a picture of some of the future shock items used in the store version of this house:

Also, the hover bed LTR goes well too :D
