Sims 3 Ambition is a highly addicting game for the PC. You can choice between several new job professions, including ghost hunter, firefighter, sculptor, inventor, and more. One of the most interesting parts of Ambition is the inventing career. If done properly, you can unlock a hidden character, the Simbot. This is very difficult, and requires several rare items, the most challenging being the heart shaped pink diamond. In this article, I will explain how to unlock the heart shaped pink diamond without cheating.
How To Get A Heart Shaped Pink Diamond Sims 3: Step 1: Inventing
The first thing to do in order to unlock the heart shaped pink diamond in the Sims is to start inventing. You can do this by purchasing the inventing bench in the hobby section of buy mode. You want your Sims to increase their inventing skill so they can build new object. After they create their first invention, have your Sims continue to ‘invent’ rather than just creating the same object over and over again.
After your sims gets good at inventing, they should unlock an object called the Miner. Don’t sell this. Instead, place it in your Sims inventory and have them go outside somewhere. You can then place the object on the ground and tell your sims to dig a hole with their new invention. As they dig, they can find several rare gem stones, including a pink diamond. Finding this diamond is the first step in unlocking the heart shaped pink diamond.
How To Get A Heart Shaped Pink Diamond Sims 3: Step 2: Finding the Pink Diamond
While your Sims dig with their new invention, you should come across many rare gems. It may take a few sims days before you find the pink diamond, but keep digging till you do. This is a lot easier and faster than going around town looking for gems.
If you’re not collecting the gems, feel free to sell them for money. Just make sure that when you do find a pink diamond, you keep it. You still have to have it shaped into a pink heart, but that comes later.
It’s also important to note that Sims will find normal diamonds while mining. This is different from the pink diamond. You’ll notice that the normal diamond is white, while the pink diamond is… well, pink. The normal diamond is also worth a lot less than the pink diamond.
How To Get A Heart Shaped Pink Diamond Sims 3: Step 3: Unlocking The Heart Shaped Cut
When your sims do find the pink diamond, it will be ore shaped, not heart shaped. You’ll still have to unlock the heart shaped cut.
In order to unlock the heart cut, you have to find ten different gems on the ground. Gems that your Sims dig up or buy from a store won’t count, so you’ll need to invest some of your lifetime reward points in the collector. When properly used, the collector will allow you to see all the different gem locations on the map, making it much easier for your Sims to find.
If you just have Sims Ambition, there are only ten different gems around town. If you have Sims World Adventure in addition to Sims Ambition, it becomes a lot easier. You can just travel to different locations and pick up random gems until you’ve found ten different gems.
How To Get A Heart Shaped Pink Diamond Sims 3: Step 4: Where To Find The Gems in Ambition
As I said before, if you only have Sims Ambition, this is going to be very tricky. The rarer gems tend to be in isolated location. If you open up the gem collector reward, you’ll notice that some gem icons are located way out in the middle of no where. While these are a pain to get, they’re much more likely to be rare, which is what you need to unlock the heart shaped cut.
If your Sims needs to rest, try sending them to a nearby location with a bench, like a gym or the junk yard. Both these locations also have food and bathrooms. Finding all ten gems is going to be an all day event. It might even take several days of searching, but everyday you do, you’re getting one step closer to unlocking the heart cut.
How To Get A Heart Shaped Pink Diamond Sims 3: Step 5: Sending Your Gems To Be Shaped
Don’t sell the gems you find, instead, send them off to be cut. Even if you haven’t unlocked the heart shaped cut for your diamond, there have been cases where sending other gems off to be cut is needed. For example, even after you find all ten gems, you may have to send 50 gems off to be shaped before the heart cut is unlocked.
To avoid wasting time, just send off the gems to be shaped as you find them. You may not have pink heart shape, but you should have others.
You only need one heart shaped pink diamond to build your Simbot, so if you find another pink diamond while searching for gems, you can send them off to be shaped. Most pink diamonds are worth several thousand dollars, no matter how they’re shaped. Just make sure you keep one for your SimBot.
How To Get A Heart Shaped Pink Diamond Sims 3: Step 6: Enjoy your Heart Shaped Pink Diamond!
If you’ve done all of the above steps, you should have unlocked the pink heart shaped cut. Next all you have to do is send your pink diamond off to be shaped, and it will return the following day ready to put in your SimBot!
