Cuali (a name which means “good” in Nahuatl) is an Aztec warrior from Mexico, who took to the sea, joining any mission that would allow him to combat the Spanish conquest of central America.

Electronic Arts and the Red Cross are teaming up to help bring aid when a natural disaster strikes. If you purchase the Red Cross branded content (priced at £7.99) it will allow players to supplement the available in-game emergency vehicles with additional relief from the Red Cross when a natural disaster strikes your in-game city.
Included in this content is two Red Cross themed vehicles that will travel around your city when a disaster happens. Also included is a Disaster Relief Center and the ability for Disaster Relief tents to appear around the area when a natural disaster happens. Sims that would normally have been critically injured will receive care from these tents; once recovery efforts have been accomplished by the in-game Red Cross, each tent will disappear and release ten healthy Sims back into the city.
