There is not just one objective of the game. The goal is generally defined by you and how you choose to play.

1. You have to choose a world to play in and then create or choose a household to play

Live Mode
Live mode is where your little people called Sims can live there lives! The main concept of live mode is "interaction". Your Sims can interact with objects,places, or other Sims/pets. To use objects you need to click on them and then click on an option on what you want to do. For instance, you can click on the refrigerator and the options "have breakfast" or "serve breakfast" will come up in the morning. If you further on click, you will get options to cook certain meals according to your Sims "cooking skill level". Then, you will see your Sim cooking. You can also go to Map view and go to places, such as the mall, the movies, or a recreational park. Then you will see your Sim going in their car to the place, and if they don't have a car, you will see them going in a taxi. You can also click other Sims to socially interact with them. There are then the options, "Friendly", "Funny","Mean", "Romantic" and also special interactions according to your Sim's personality. For instance if your Sim is a "Bookworm" they can "Enthuse about books". Your Sim can also interact with pets if you have the "PETS" expansion pack. You can similarily do "Friendly" and "Mean" interactions like petting or scolding.

Buy Mode
Buy mode is where you can furnish your Sim's home however you like! You can sort all of the furniture by room, and by function. When you click "by room", you will see different panels, each containing furniture in different rooms. For instance, in the living room panel you will see a television, stereo, coffee table, couches, and a carpet. If you click any of these items, more of those specific items will show up. Sort by function will show panels with things and their use. For instance, if you click "lighting" different types of lights will pop up like ceiling lights to desk lamps. However, everything costs money or "Simoleons". You need to be able to afford the furniture by having a job or by pursuing a hobby that makes money, like painting.

Build Mode
Build mode is where you can build your Sim's house or any building for that matter. In build mode, you can create walls, a foundation, floors, fences, fountains, and pools!There are also some specific tools on the side to help with the building process. There is the "hand tool" that allows you to move or delete objects, and there is the "eye dropper tool" which will allow you to duplicate any piece of furniture, or wallpaper/floor. There is also the "create a style" that allows you to recolor most of the items by using a color wheel and different available textures. Lastly, the "sledgehammer tool" is to delete walls, foundations, floors, fences,fountains, and pools!
