Granite Falls Insect Collection Guide

Written by Snow on . Posted in The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat

Insect collecting in The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat can be tons of fun, but also very challenging. You will need a sharp eye and some quick clicking. You can go to the Ranger Center in the forest in Granite Falls to see many of the species that can be found. Once you’ve collected some bugs, there are lots of things you can do! Here are some tips:

Tip #1: Insects make great decorations in your home.  Once insects are collected they are automatically placed in terrariums. It is fantastic to see these little creatures crawling around and offering tons of viewing entertainment.

Tip #2: Insects are tasty food items! We have some new Cooking recipes in The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat. Roast a tasty beetle over the open flames on the campfire, or prepare Shish Kebabs or Gumbo with insects on the grill. A delicious dish will fill your Sims’ bellies and increase their happiness for hours.

Tip #3: Have you tried the new Herbalism skill yet? Your Sims can create Herbal Remedies using insects and plant parts. One of the basic Herbalism remedies is the Sadness Alleviation Lotion - it requires two Elderberry parts and a Firefly. You can apply it to lift the spirits of melancholy Sims! My particular favorite Remedy is Fireleaf Extract, made with Fire Ants. Yup, it makes Sims itch all over!

Tip #4: Sims need to be wary of some insects. Your Sim may receive a negative buff like Foul Stench or Bug Bite! If your Sim has the Squeamish trait, collecting insects will be even harder. Squeamish Sims can become uncomfortable around anything dirty and can get nauseated by these creepy crawlies!

Top 6 Things You Need to Know About Outdoor Retreat

Written by Snow on . Posted in The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat

The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat is here, complete with a new destination filled with new gameplay possibilities, new objects, activities and a whole new skill. No matter how you play the game, this game pack will have something exciting for you!

Here are the top six things you need to know:

1. Wander into an All-New Destination: Your Sims can now make an escape from their everyday lives into the pine-filled air of Granite Falls. They can venture deep into the woods to discover new surprises, including dangerous and wondrous herbs, and new species of insects.  Let’s just hope that your Sims aren’t squeamish about creepy crawlers.

2. Set Up The Perfect Camp: No camping trip is complete without the proper supplies. Your Sims will be able to purchase a tent and outfit themselves in new hiking gear. For the less adventurous Sims, they can still camp out in the comfort of their backyard.

3. Enjoy Unique Outdoor Activities: Lay back for a night of stargazing and let your Sims’ imagination run wild! Join a game of horseshoes and take a hike in the national park or try to find the hermit rumored to live in the deepest parts of the forest.

The Sims 4 updates: genealogy and something special for San Valentine

Written by CriCri on . Posted in Patch

Here we are with the February's The Sims 4 update! The Sims Team will celebrate the 15th anniversary and some things can happen!

First this update: now you can find genealogy in your game and in addition there are some objects love themed, due to the incoming S. Valentine day!

TS4 445 VALENTINES CONTENT 1 002GENEALOGY Feb3

Can you believe it? This week marks the 15 year anniversary of The Sims™. This is a massive milestone, not just for us in the studio but for all of our players, many of whom have shared this journey from that very first day. We will be celebrating throughout the month of February, but what better way to kick off than by talking about a much-requested feature that we are bringing to The Sims 4 today.

Genealogy is essential for legacy and family players to fully appreciate the scope of their games. For all those players who lovingly document every generation of their Sims, print out their family trees, and keep tracking of the complex relationships that develop, Genealogy is an incredibly valuable tool.

Let’s take a look at a Sim family you might see in the game.

Now, with this feature, you’ll be able to look at your Sim’s family history, including brothers and sisters, mothers, fathers, grandparents (and some greats, and great greats, etc.), step relationships (like Step-Parent), half relationships (like Half-Sibling), and of course, Spouses.

After you download the most recent The Sims 4 update, you can find this in Live Mode by opening the Simology Panel (or hit the Y key).

Then, click Show House’s Genealogy.

Boom! There’s the whole family. You can now view and track the vast relationships you’ve accumulated in your Sims’ lifetimes. Who is related to whom? Which child came from which grandfather? It’s all there for you.
