Herbalism is a brand new skill in The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat Game Pack. With it, your Sims are able to identify new wild plants and brew potent herbal remedies on the grill and stove. This guide will show you how to identify wild plants, and how to brew your first herbal remedy!
Welcome to Granite Falls
Granite Falls is home to a variety of wild plants that grow in the campgrounds, the forest, and the mountains. While your Sim is on vacation, keep an eye out for bushes or little clusters of mushrooms that you can harvest. If you see one, click on it!
Identifying Unknown Plants
Plants need to be identified before they can be used to brew herbal remedies. Sims can eat unidentified plants, but do so at your own risk! There are many toxic plants in Granite Falls that can have nasty effects such as making your Sim Tense, or even worse—making them bladder fail.
To identify a plant, click on it in your Sim’s inventory and select “Attempt to Identify”. Your Sim will harvest the plant and take a little nibble; if successful they’ll figure out what plant it is! This will build your Sim’s Herbalism skill even if they fail to identify it.
By reading the plant descriptions you can find out which plants are required for each remedy.
