The Sims Social, however, measures individual Sim progress with an experience point system aligned with levels. The higher the level, the more items the Sim can unlock to purchase and the more interactions the Sim can have with items (e.g. practicing arpeggios on the guitar as opposed to practicing scales). An additional “score” element comes from total home value (which increases with each item you buy), from Relationship progress bars unique to the individual Sims the player interacts with, and from Social Points earned through interacting with other Sims that can be spent on certain virtual items like a hot tub.
