Things Discovered in Sims 4
There are lots of things built into The Sims that may not be widely known.
I have played The Sims for many years and have been playing Sims 4 since release day.
But still there are tiny (?) elements that are yet to be discovered.
Yesterday I was updating an Alien Sim from my library.
I discovered that you can both create an Alien Sim AND customize their alter ego.


They even have a special Plumbob
So what have you discovered?

Surprised I've seen the option to creating an alien when I've gone into CAS to create a sim, but I have never clicked on it or made one! This is a very interesting find EQ! thumbs up I just may have to check it out. Wink

Woodworking is now autonomous.
With the City Living Patch/EP Sims will now automously use the woodworking bench to create the Knife Block and miscellaneous small wooden statues.
This can be seen as either a good thing or a bad thing.
*Sims build Handiness
*Crafted items can be sold for profit
*They will stop reading or doing other tasks to use the Woodworking Bench.
I had to put the bench into Family inventory to get my family to concentrate on other skills.

Oh my goodness! Why? Why would they (the developing team) do something this! Ugh. **Leaving a note to myself NOT to put the woodworking bench in any home!**

I have noticed that one of my gals will stop doing somethings like watch TV, read a book, exercise and go to the painting easel. Not sure if this is for all sims as I only have that in one household atm. Worth checking out!

Did you know...?
Clubs are not required to have a group of Sims do things as a group.
Under Actions choose Add to Group for individuals or Form a Group for several at once.
You can then choose various activities to do together.
Especially helpful for two or more Kids/Teens to Do Homework Together.
Also helpful for other things like have the whole group Dance or Go Fishing together.

Interesting stuff.  But, I do not like my Sims quitting a learning action to do what they think they want to do.  Mad

Here are a few thing's I've learned about toddlers:


Children can teach to build tower and teach shapes with the stacking blocks.


They can also clean the dirty potties!

Also did some testing with the highchair. It looks like you must have the highchair to give a toddler food/drink and only adults can perform the action.  Although, plates of food can be dragged to tables, counters and floor for toddlers to help themselves.

Also, if you have a second adult (that's one of the toddlers parents) then you can put that sim in a job but then take vacation days and family leave when available. This way your sims still gets paid for work but can stay home and help with the little ones.

@Rawla Nooooooo, I didn't know that. How cute! I am gonna have to buy a big animal....well, right now we only have 19 simoleons Sad


Did you know that little darlings can work on several skills at that same time? I didn't....I guess it makes sense since all the other sims can but it makes me happy! Now, if they could just walk around with the wabbit tablet.

Toddlers can gain Thinking skill by using "What's This?" on multiple items.

Toddlers can be given 'Food from inventory'
In this case the garden had just been harvested and harvestable food (lemon) can be eaten by toddlers.
After I discovered this I put strawberries in the Toddler inventory.

That's awesome news. Thank you for sharing.



Did you know the toddler traits continue to follow your adult sims?  My sim, as a toddler was a charmer, and it shows in her emotions.  This sim was actually aged up in CAS from a toddler to a Young Adult. No skills....no actual game play. Only adult traits in her simology.

@Buttonsginger WOW! So you born-in-game toddler was aged in CAS and the effects of the Charmer trait still shows as a Young Adult? Wonder what would happen with my Wild Toddler.  Bigby was added to the Toddler Mania household and aged down to Toddler with the Wilfmd trait. Do you think he will run around streaking?

The toddlers were made in CAS. I aged them up in CAS and then deleted the parents from the original household.


I originally wanted to use the young adult versions I played in the toddlers Mania Challenge but they had skills.

Vampire GP:
Even non-vampire Sims can do Vampire Research on the computer and read the Vampire Encyclopedia to gain Vampire Knowledge Skill Points.

In answer to the "burning" question (pun intended) Yes ... a vampire can use a tent to protect themselves from the sun. The trick is getting them to stay in the tent. It could come in handy to have a tent in their inventory in case of Sunlight emergency.

I keep canceling the humans reading the Vampire Encyclopedias....lol. My vampire can't get her turn. (hehehehe....turn)

Ooooooooooooooo...good to know about the tent. Wow...it sure doesn't take long for them to start burning in the sun, does it?!

Did you know that if you stay over at a vampires home there is a possibility that a vampire from outside the household can come in and drink from your sim and you can't stop the action??


My sim is in the bed asleep. The gal in white pants is the invading vampire. The other gal is a household member and came up stairs and told her to leave that she was being inappropriate but she ignore her and drank away. How rude! My sim had been given the opportunity to be changed already and he had accepted but was just in the beginning stages of the transformation.

I went into manage worlds and checked but there were no lot traits on the build. I thought maybe one of the new ones would draw the unwanted vampire in the house.

Oh my! Maybe your Sim should eat garlic before going to bed to avoid being bitten? Razz

@EuphorialQueen  At the time my sim had been "turned" but had not completed his......ermmmmm...."turning", so I didn't think I needed to give me garlic.


Did you know your vampire sim can be outside in FH during the day....well at least the morning....without burning if they are under a roof that hangs over the edge of a build?  I read they had to be under a "ceiling". There are no flooring tiles above the first floor as you can see from the image above.

edit:

Here is an expansion of the roof. Tori is standing with the sun shining on her but she is not burning. cheers A helpful way for cover with no cost.
