There was a very, VERY long list of code that was hidden in the latest patch. Most of you won’t understand much of it, which is why I have gone through each line and posted ALL of the info on the next expansion! Personally, I think this EP looks fantastic! Below I describe each new thing based on the animations and descriptions in the files.


Beekeeping Skill- there are smoker effects, and angry swarms of bees, as well as negative moodlets when a Sim has been stung by a bee!

Alchemy Skill/Cauldron Object- there is a cauldron bubbling effect. Potions can be drunk and thrown at other Sims. There many potion sizes, shapes, and effect descriptions, but they are impossible to understand, besides this one:
• Clone Drone Potion- the effect creates an adult Sim-sized cloud of a sparkly burst on the ground.
• Anti- Nausea Potion
• Energy Stabilizer Potion- For a period of time, your energy level won’t decay.
• Invigorating Potion- Drink to feel invigorated
• Lasting Skill Boost Potion
• Inducing Potion- Drink this to feel nauseous.
• Smelly Potion- Drink to stink!
• Zombification Potion- Become a zombie!

Potion Shop- it says that if you master Alchemy, “you will get discounts on items in the Potion Shop”, which is likely where you purchase ingredients.

Candle Station- There animations for candle flames flickering, the “candle station” starting, and wax dripping. There are actions to “Create Candle”, so I presume that you can make candels with the candle station.

Flying broomsticks- there are effects for flying/landing broomsticks, as well as a hint that there are four broom types: cheap, moderate, expensive, and “epic rocket”. These are just placeholder names, but you get the point.

Other Misc. Objects- Magic Wardrobe, Wizard Chest (which can appear and disappear), Wizard Toy

Other Misc. Interactions- Conjure Apple, Conjure Poison Apple (which provides the Poisoned moodlet), Bee Attack!!!

Fairies- Sims can transform into tiny fairies and vice versa (there are animations for the transformation from big to tiny, for each age group). Fairies can set ***** traps in ovens, trashcans, sofas, bathtubs and even in the mailbox. Fairies can also be Sim-sized. They can sprinkle and toss “dust”, and there are several “dust tricks” that cause different effects. They also have different types of wings possibly, and can have “fairy dragon” wings, as it says in the code. There is also something called Fairy Nectar, which provides a “Fairy Nectar Buzz” moodlet when drunk.

Witches/Spellcraft- There is a new skill, Spellcraft. You can be turned into a toad by a witch, as there is the moodlet “Toadified!” with the description, “You have been turned into a toad!”.

Zombies- There is a “Zombified!” moodlet, with the description, “You look like death. Not even warmed over.”

Shapeshifting/Werewolves- there are animations for Shapeshifting, which go from Sim-sized to wolf-sized. It says that wolves can scratch furniture, the ground, as well as other Sims, which seems to be the way that Sims are turned into werewolves. Wolves have new interactions, including, “Hunt Solo, Hunt with Pack, Howl at the Moon”. Clicking on a werewolf, you can choose to “Transform Into Human/Werewolf Form” whenever you wish. You can also hunt down rare objects with your “keen sense of smell”. Werewolves also have the hilarious interaction “Have Belly Rubbed”.

New Mystic Fortune Teller Profession- You can give private readings to Sims, as well as group readings. There are a TON of positions listed, so it could branch into several careers, I’m not sure: Mystic, Scam Artist, Celebrity Psychic, Fortune Guesser, Horoscope Reader, Conjurer of Cheap Tricks, Dealer of Destinies, Master of Mysticism, Metaphysical Fabricator, Metaphysician, Palm Reader, Spiritual Guide, Traveller of Time and Space, Vague Visionary.

Hmm...Sounds pretty cool now that I have a bit more info. Werewolves? That's a plus I wonder if it would require Sims 3 Pets....

I know right. And once Seasons is finally added in The Sims 3, it will be just months before the release of The Sims 4 where we'll have to deal with eternal sun for another five years.

This EP sounds TERRIBLE. Like I have an even lesser chance of purchasing it then I do Generations and Showtime. At least those two EP's aren't just a bunch of stupid overdone creatures.

The Sims 3 needs a WIND INSTRUMENT.

The lack of them is UNFAIR.

It does sound better than just "magic". However, I still want weather with my supernatural beings...

And they're probably going to release it at the end of the series if they release it at all.Le sigh.

Since this EP seems focused on the supernatural, and from looking in the files, there are clearly several new creatures. Witches, fairies, zombies, and werewolves so far!!! They each sound amazing!

Witches use the Spellcraft skill and can make potions and candles.
There is no info on zombies, but I love them!
Werewolves can bite other Sims to cure them and cause them to transform, and they can go sniff out objects!
Fairies can transform into small, fairy form and can fly around and pull pranks!!!!!

WHAT IS SO INTERESTING ABOUT SEASONS!?!?!?

Guys, how is having snow CONTENT??? That doesn't make the game more fun! They should add it, but if they did, they would probably get lazy and make it the entire expansion. Who actually wants a YEAR to go by without anything besides weather added to their game?? Yeah, snowing and raining makes the game realistic. But it isn't something to DO in the game!!!

The snow is not the content...it's what revolves around the snow ;P People don't want a year to go by and just Wheather come out...of course they want more add ons even AFTER wheather. :3

I've already explained this enough times.

Seasons adds a cycle into the game that brings the game to life. In the same vein of ages, the game changes in ways over periods of times playing it, and that is essential to keep it interesting. Weather is more random than aging as well, so you never know what will happen.

That is what makes it so important for me.

The Sims 3 needs a WIND INSTRUMENT.

The lack of them is UNFAIR.
