Sims 4 Super Quick Twitch Stream Overview of Jungle Adventures #1

By | Games, Sims (1, 2, 3 and 4) | No Comments

On the 16th Feburary, The Sims did an hour long Twitch stream (here). Within the stream they played Jungle Adventures and a lot of details were revealed about the upcoming expansion pack. These included: THE LIST BELOW INCLUDES POSSIBLE SPOILERS – Read at your own risk

  • Salvadorada will have 2 houses to rent, no buyable lots. All editable.
  • 2 New music styles (Latin Pop & Latin Traditional)
  • 2 New dances (one looked like the hustle)
  • 2 Skills (Culture & Archaeology)
  • 2 Aspirations (focusing on the culture and archaeology)
  • Lots of new unlockable foods
  • Lots of new items including spider repellent, waterfall in a bottle (portable shower) and machete
  • Statue in town helps with curses
  • 1 New death type
  • Adventure 24/7
  • New lot traits, moodlets
  • Mystical Relics are created by combining a top + bottom + gem.
    • Can be good or bad
    • Can be cast on self or others
    • Effects are unknown until uses
  • Artifacts and relics have quality and rarity assigned to them
  • Portable toddler bed
  • New plants

World Icon

Statue in the centre of town

From the look of the stream, the randomness comes from what spawns in particular places rather than a randomly generated map. Although we’ve yet to do a temple run, so this could be different within the temple. On the stream, they visited a main lot, cleared out some vines and were then teleported to another section deeper within the map, that is otherwise inaccessible. When you entered a new area, you are met with a randomly generated popup that has 2-3 options.

Sims 4 Willow Creek Map Markers

By | Games, Sims (1, 2, 3 and 4) | No Comments

Within this map you will find the approximate spawn locations of each plant, dig spot, fishing spot, BBQ area and point of interest including portals to hidden maps within the image. Click on the icon for a picture that shows you exactly where you can find the object you’re after. Boasting over 100 images, there may be some areas that were overlooked however, I’ve tried to include all spawn locations. Also, the Willow Creek world map doesn’t match up with the imagery within the game, as a result some of the locations had to be approximate.

Sims 4 Jungle Adventure Game Pack Announced Official description and key features

By | Games, Sims (1, 2, 3 and 4) | No Comments

If you’re anything like me, you’ve seen the sudden release of information about a new game pack called Jungle Adventure, and you’re wandering where it all came from. This is what I’ve been able to find out so far.

  • There was a teaser released within a video that hinted a new some thing (Game Pack, Expansion Pack, Stuff Pack) would be coming shortly after Laundry Day Stuff Pack was released. (Video snippet).
  • We can tell from the colour of the icon, that it’s going to be a Game Pack, matching that of Outdoor Retreat, Spa Day, Dine Out, Vampires and Parenthood.
  • SimsVIP was able to get some screenshots of the information from their Origin account.

Official Description

Explore a unique wilderness landscape, revealing a temple, jungle obstacles, cursed relics and treasures. Experience the culture and customs of Selvadorada, from devouring local eats to learning spicy new dance moves!

KEY FEATURES

  • Venture to Selvadorada. Travel to Selvadorada a new destination where your Sims can befriend locals at the cantina or purchase essential survival gear. Your Sims can try traditional foods, dance to new music, practice native customs and shop for authentic décor. Dress your Sims in local fashion from outfits full of colourful patterns to durable clothing suitable for the jungle!
  • Explore the jungle. Sims gear up in hiking attire and prepare for danger as they trek deep into the jungle, revealing hidden pools, ancient artefact sites and ruins. Beware of natural dangers and obstacles (from deadly bees to poisonous spiders) that will surely keep your Sims on their toes!
  • Discover a hidden temple. Your Sims will be pleasantly surprised with what they’ll find when they stumble upon a unique temple. Venture into the mysterious rooms where Sims may find priceless relics, great treasures or doom! Have your Sims visit again to experience new challenges and uncover different treasures or traps.
  • Collect ancient artefacts. Uncover hidden items as Sims seek out ancient artefacts and mysterious relics. Sims can excavate and examine these precious objects closely at the archaeology table, determining their quality, but watch out for fakes!

Sims 4 How to do a load of laundry

By | Games, Sims (1, 2, 3 and 4) | No Comments

Watch the video, or read below

Upgrade table information below.

Information within this video relates directly to the Sims 4 Laundry Day Stuff Pack. In order to have the items and game play, including moodlets and everything else within this video, you need to have the Laundry Day Stuff Pack.

If you’re still curious as to whether or not you want to get Laundry Day Stuff Pack, check out my review. Within the review, I go through all of the items including cosmetic and in game as well as what play style it suits.

The Laundry Day Stuff Pack has added 2 ways for you to wash and dry your clothes:

  • The first being manually via Old Timmy’s Wash Tub, and drying them with the Model T Clothesline and
  • The second being mechanically using a Green Clean Washing Machine and a Fyre Dryer.
  • The washer dryer are also available in the Urbanite Appliances Stacked Washer/Dryer Unit.
    • Which is exactly the same as the 2 individual units, just sold stacked on top of each other.
    • Both these appliances have the ability to set a sim on fire
    • The washing machine has the ability to electrocute a sim
  • You can use any combination of washing and drying you wish.

Locating the items

Objects by Function:
The washtub and clothes line can be found under Activities and skills, Miscellaneous

The new laundry white goods and hampers can also be found in Activities and skills, recreational. As well as the Appliances drop down menu, then miscellaneous

Objects by Room
To find the Washing tub and clothes line via the room option go to Outdoors, using the BBQ icon. Then click on the plant bed for Outdoor Activities.

For the washer and drier navigate to the Study, then select the gaming table for Indoor Activities.

Upgrades

Old Timmy’s Wash Tub

  • This can not be upgraded
  • Additives can be added to the washing process to enhance or degrade the washing quality. More on this later.

  • Increases Fitness skill

Model T Clothes Line

  • Can be upgraded to never break or catch on fire
  • Takes approximately 12 hours to dry 1 load

Green Clean Washing Machine

  • Has 5 upgrades available to it, which requires the handiness skill ranging from 5 skill to 8.
  • Additives can be added to the washing process to enhance or degrade the washing quality after the Additives Tray upgrade has been added. Again, more on this later.
  • Can be filled directly or filled from a hamper

Fyre Dryer

  • Has 4 upgrades available, ranging from skill 5 to 8

Laundry Stats

Explaining this is a little tricky, so bare with me.

Each pile of clothing has been given a state of freshness. This is something that is used by the game to assist with determining what moodlet you will get at the end of the washing cycle. My understanding is the worse the clothes are at the start, the lower your chances are at getting a positive moodlet. This can be positively influenced by keeping up with your laundry and doing at least 1 load per day, upgrading your appliances and putting additives into the wash. Alternatively, if you want to create negative moodlets, don’t do washing for a few days and or use dirty/old water when you do.

There are 5 different cleanliness states including Filthy, Dirty, Used, Clean to Pristine.

In addition, you also have the Dryness, which has 3 levels, soaked, damp and dry.

Furthermore, you can add flowers from your inventory to enhance the fragrance. Or,  add in a grilled cheese sandwich for a foul moodlet. You can also sometimes get a Playful moodlet from clothes have been taken out of the drier and are considered to be warm.

Moodlets are assigned, seemingly at random from the state of freshness and dryness state of the clothing, after the washing has been “put away”

TitleMoodletCondition
Filthy+2 UncomfortableFreshness
Dirty+2 UncomfortableFreshness
Used+1 FineFreshness
Clean+1 HappyFreshness
Pristine+2 HappyFreshness
Soaked+2 AngryDryness
Damp+2 SadDryness
Dry+2 FineDryness
Fragrant+2 ConfidentSmell
Foul+2 EmbarrassedSmell
Warm+2 PlayfulState
When you complete a load of washing and put it away, you have a chance of creating a moodlet. Below is a list of possible options.

You can see the quality of the washing by hovering over the pile of washing. Sparkles, butterflies, flies and water are the visual indicators that go along with the hover over tool tip.

Once clothes have been put away and a sim changes their outfit, it will trigger the moodlet. Each one lasts for 4 hours. Changing your outfits frequently does not refresh it and they can be over written by a different laundry moodlet, should someone put away another load of washing.

Not doing the laundry for a day will progressively worsen the state of your sims current clothing and risks giving your sim a used, dirty or filthy moodlet.

Unfortunately, if you want to have a laundry in your household, without custom content, you’ll have to deal with the washing of clothes, as placing one of new hampers or any of the washing/drying methods to the lot, triggers the creation of laundry.

Maids and butlers will do laundry. Sims can also just randomly do washing if you’ve not got them assigned to doing something else.

You can search through piles of laundry and hampers for spare coins, which is a nice little way of generating money at the start of the game.

Additives

Things can be added to the cleaning process that enhances or degrade the final outcome. Flowers and grilled cheese sandwiches can be added to the laundry. However, the items must be in your inventory. To add them to the washing tub, you simply click on it and select the additives option you’re after. The washing machine needs to have the Additive Tray upgrade before you can do this.

Also, people with the mischief skill can add extra soap, resulting in an overflow during the cycle and will need to be cleaned out and repaired afterwards.

Other Information

  • Cats enjoy interacting with Washing Machines and Dryers
  • Other food items can be added to the washing machine, other than just grilled cheese
  • With cheats enabled, you can change the state of the laundry
  • Service staff can also clean out lint trays
  • Slob and Lazy traits will generate a pile of laundry on the floor near them.
  • Spin Cycle +2 Dazed Watching laundry spin, during spin cycle
  • Yucky Splash +2 Sad Toddlers interacting with the wash tub
  • Washed-Out Arms +2 Uncomfortable From using the wash tub

Sims 4: Laundry Day Review

By | Games, Sims (1, 2, 3 and 4) | No Comments

Sims 4 Laundry day Stuff pack has recently been released. It’s $14.99 AUD and is officially described as as allowing your sims to “wash their wardrobe, build rustic homes and dress in a country style”. Given that it was a stuff pack that was voted on, by the community to determine what went into it, is it worth buying now, waiting until it comes on sale or is it worth getting at all?

Let’s do some quick maths, there are at least 71 buyable new items added to the game, including 3 hair styles for adults, 17 adult clothing articles (both favoring females), new rugs and cluttered decoration for the house as well as 2 different styles of washing machines (tub and machine), rounding up be approximately 21 cents per item. Unfortunately, there is only 2 kids items and nothing there for pets.

For more information on washing in particular, check out the link in the description below.

The washing machines come in individual washer and drier units or a combo with them sitting on top of each other. There is also a do it by hand wash tub and a clothes line, similar to Sims 3 which is a nice nostalgia hit. Additionally there are 3 incredibly similar, but slightly different washing hampers and a handful of various washing clutter that you can use to reinvigorate your house. All in all, the total amount of items and variety of them is nice. Although I personally would have liked to have had some paints and floor tiles.

For many people the stuff pack means adding in a laundry to their house and finding room within the bedroom and or bathrooms for the hamper.  It’s fun however, fleeting. Starting a new house with the expansion pack won’t be so much of an issue as you can plan ahead of time.

Advert

When doing your laundry in Sims 4 is similar to Sims 3, where a pile of clothing appears on the ground or goes directly into a hamper, depending on hamper availability and your sims traits. For example if you have a sim with the lazy trait they’re probably going to dump their clothing onto the floor, rather than having it magically appear in the hamper. Let me know in the comment section below, what has caused laundry to be created for your sims.

EA has included a handful of different states for the laundry piles ranging from filthy to pristine, giving you something to strive for when doing your washing. Whether it’s additional positive moodlets or negative ones.

Unlike Sims 3, they have added many more steps when doing a cycle of washing. For example you have to put the clothes into the washing machine, turn it on, wait for it to cycle to complete, put the clothes into the drier, turn it on, wait for the cycle to finish, take the washing out and put it away. Now this may not seem like much, but the turn it on step is quite often easy to overlook while in game. Which is annoying and cumbersome as it makes the gameplay clunky.

On metacritic, a user by the name of TheBlueFox rated the stuff pack at 5/10, stating that the overall game itself has been cutback so much that unless you buy the stuff packs it’s not worth having the game. They also point out that laundry was something that was just included within the Ambitions expansion pack and it was a small part of it whereas, in Sims 4, an entire stuff pack has been dedicated to it.

One poster on Reddit, JiveAssStick pointed out that the only reason they’ve bought the laundry stuff pack is because they are a completionist. While others have pointed out that the game play that comes along with the stuff pack makes it one of the best yet.

A lot of people are comparing Laundry Day for Sims 4, with the Ambitions expansion pack from Sims 3, where laundry was introduced there as a minor addition, rather than the feature. Which is a valid point.

For me, I think that if you’re collecting the expansion packs, but don’t particularly care for a handful of moodlets that add -2 to +2 to your sims overall emotional state, then you’re best waiting until it goes on sale. If you play legacy style games, then its something that you’ll enjoy a lot.

  • create a sim – I can’t give it a high score here, there are only a few extra options and while they are nice they are also mostly aimed at adult females, so there isn’t a lot of variety. A more even spread would have been nice and something for pets, since they’ve recently released that expansion pack would have been great to see. 4/10
  • build mode – Im a little on the fence about this as they have added a lot of new items to the game, they are of a similar theme and probably one I’ll use. However, you couldn’t kit out an entire house with the stuff pack, which is something that always erks me with the themes. You have a rustic lounge room but a futuristic kitchen. Who does that?  People generally carry decorating themes throughout their entire house. Overall, the items they did add nice and usable, 6/10
  • gameplay – I enjoy the legacy style of games, so my score is somewhat influenced or tainted by this. I enjoy that there is something extra to do, in terms of looking after your house. I like the extra little homey feel having a laundry in your house adds to the game. 7/10
    • Overall score: 5.6/10
    • Collectors/Completionists: Wait until its on sale
    • Legacy Players: Get it! Get it now!

Overwatch: Winter Wonderland Yeti Brawl explained

By | Games, Overwatch | No Comments

This year the Overwatch team have created a new brawl that is similar to the game Evolve. Where you have 1 monster vs. 5 players, all of which are played by people. It is the goal of the Yeti (Winston) to kill 5 Yeti Hunters (Meis).

Mei

Her kit is slightly changed. While she still gets her slow left click, iceicles on the right click, ice wall and ice block the ultimate is a trap. However, the trap takes approximately 5 seconds to arm.

Mei’s will also communicate with each other by voice lines “he’s over here!” “Winston, where aaare you?” “Run!”. You’ll also see a red outline of Winston on occasion.

All the Mei’s will have the same skin, regardless of what the player has equipped prior to loading into the game.

Goal to win: To kill Winston and avoid being killed

Winston

His kit remains basically unchanged. He has his gun, can melee, can use shields and jump, not to mention the beast mode ultimate lasts 20 seconds. He also has increased health and is unable to regenerate it.

If Winston jumps off the world, the game isn’t over. He’ll take heavy damage and be returned to the cave. The Mei’s will receive a notification saying “The Yeti has returned to his cave”.

Winston gets his enrage ability by collecting 4 meat.

Goal: To kill any Mei 5 times in total

Achievements

These can only be obtained during the Yeti Hunter mode, during the Winter Wonderland event.
