[edit] Splicer Island

Splicer Island is a hidden island that is only visitable in the DS version of this game. It has a few different locations/shops on it, but the main feature is the Splicer Lab, where you can create one of eight pets for your sim to own, communicate with, and take with them around the island.

- Isle Cabana
- Smoothie Shop
- Splicer Lab
- Sushi Bar
- Zoo

[edit] Creating a Pet

Your sim can create one of the eight available pets at the Splicer Lab, through the Create-A-Pet Minigame. Each pet comes in a certain color depending on the rating that you earn of RNA and DNA extractions, and some colors are more uncommon/rarer than others. Pets also have attributes and likes/dislikes when communicating, but all these factors depend on how you play the Create-A-Pet Minigame.

In Create-A-Pet Minigame you can obtain 9 different combinations each one will give you a certain color. The first part is called Amber Extraction and you trace along 8 different fractures in the Amber to Extact the DNA. You can score 50 to 100 points for each fracture but if you don't get enough traced you can actually loose points. The sample recovered can be rated Superior (800), Exemplary (750-600) Average (550-100). If your laser touches Amber other than the fracture for to long it could render the DNA unusable. The second part is RNA Splicer you can also score Superior (999+) , Exemplary (758), and Average (723-). You touch the genetic orb as it hits the scan line. You get extra points if you hit the blue orb right when it's shiny white spot crosses the scan line. This causes a multiplying affect. Hitting it as soon as it touches the scan line can cause the RNA to be renders useless as well.
