The Sims 3: Vampire

Vampires in the Supernatural and Late Night Expansions

By Thomas Hickman (aka samoht04)

The Sims 3 Late Night Vampires

Vampires were first introduced into the game through The Sims 3 Late Night Expansion. Some people have said that Vampires are one of those features that you want to turn off but can't, as the Story Progression will automatically create Vampires in any Neighbourhood. I personally find them to be great additions to the game. They are the Supernatural Creature of the Late Night Expansion like the mummies of World Adventures and the Simbots of Ambitions. There is a lot to learn about the new Vampire life state, so I will try to show you as much as I can.

The Sims 3 SupernaturalThe Sims 3 Supernatural: Vampire Improvements
Simmers who purchase The Sims 3 Supernatural will also get vampires, which are in a slightly improved state. Vampires don't gain hidden skill levels as fairies, witches, and werewolves do. However, they do now have their own Lifetime Wish (Turn the Town) and their fangs can be customized in Create-a-Sim. Vampires get a few new social interactions with Supernatural as well.

Perhaps the biggest improvements for them are their new options in the daylight. Alchemists can make sunscreen that allows vampires to dodge the ill effects of the sun, and an Elixir which will turn a Sim into a Vampire. With the Immortal Lifetime Reward, they not only stop aging but also get a +30 moodlet for being in the sun, as they now sparkle.

How to become a Vampire:
First your Sim must befriend a Vampire otherwise they won't get the option to become one. Your Sim must choose to 'Be Turned' into a Vampire from a Vampire Friend. You can not get turned without selecting the 'Ask to be turned' interaction. This will then lead to the period of Metamorphosis. After a bite on the neck...

The Sims 3 Late Night Vampires The Sims 3 Late Night Vampires

Sims are covered in swirling red mist and black bat shapes, then the chaos settles. No changes in appearance will be evident at this stage. An unusual blemish moodlet will be placed on the Sim, and one of several messages from the Vampire who turned them, such as:

"You took that well! I am Impressed! Your future is about to get a little more interesting!"
"It is done. Prepare to wake into an eternal night!"

For a few days your Sim will stay the same, but during that period several messages will pop up:

"The bite itches ever so slightly. It's enough to resist the urge to scratch though."
Followed a day or two later with:
"The heat! It's as if my blood is on fire, literally boiling within my veins. What have I gotten myself into?

And then finally a few days later the Sim will 'Complete Metamorphosis' . The Sim will begin to glow with a few red sparkles then a consuming burning light. Red lasers shoot from the Sim's eyes and once again the swirling red mist and black bats will appear. When the metamorphosis is complete you will be left with a Vampire. Their Eyes will shine -- they do not turn red but get sharper and brighter. My Sim had blue eyes and now has bright blue shining eyes. During that transformation you will receive the message:

"I feel as if a part of me has died, yet every other fibre of my being is raging with vitality, I crave something, yet I don't know what. It's…Like..a…Thirst.."

It is now that you can use your Vampire Powers! If it is night time your Vampire will receive the 'Vampiric Vigor' Moodlet which is supposed to give your Vampire energy due to the darkness. Congratulations you now have a Vampire!

Vampire Moodlets:
There are a few new Moodlets from being a Vampire or being near one, they are listed below:

Vampiric Vigor: This moodlet is a permanent moodlet when it is dark, it gives your Vampire energy at night time, along with boosting their skill gains dramatically.

Sated: This is from feeding on other Sims' plasma. Only your mortal friends can give plasma to your Vampire through feeding.

Thirsty: As opposed to hungry, your Sim needs some Plasma.

Hunted: This is a non-vampire moodlet from Vampires; it is from being in the presence of a vampire you are not friends with. It normally does not mean anything, just that your Sim is feeling uncomfortable.

Changes to the User Interface:
There are a few changes to your Sim's Interface. First is that your Vampire's needs will change. Hunger will change to Thirst and the needs panel will change to a dark blue/purple color with black bars. Your Vampire's favourite food will also change to a Blood Type. The largest impact will be on aging, as below.

Vampire Life Spans
Baby: 3 Days from Birth
Toddler: 7 Days
Child: 7 Days
Teenager: 14 Days
Young Adult: 105 Days
Adult: 105 Days
Elder: 72 Days +

Vampires across the Generations:
With Vampires we can now have Full and Half-Blood Vampire Bloodlines. Sims can have Vampire children which are horribly creepy. They are pale and have bright eyes. They fully receive their powers when they become Young Adults, and at that time take on the desire for plasma.

Vampire children and toddlers can benefit from the Vampire state's faster learning speeds, so there is an exception to the life state's effect on young Sims.

The Vampire State's Influence on Skill Gains:
Becoming a vampire will help your Sim to gain skills faster, and they will not suffer from fatigue when exercising.

Vampire Social Interactions:
There are several new interactions available after a Sim has turned into a Vampire:

Make Sim think of you: This makes the other sim think about yours.

Read Mind - Traits, Career, Sign, Relationships, Favorites: Lets your Sim find out more information about the target Sim.

Drink : Makes your Sim drink the plasma of another Sim.

Offer to turn: This gives another Sim who is a friend or higher the option to be turned into a vampire by your Sim.

You can only use these powers on one sim once every so often since the minds of normal sims are weak.

Vampires don't die in the sun without The Sims 3 Seasons Expansion installed (they die like all other Sims to heat). They do need to stay out of it to avoid a nasty moodlet. First, heating up will appear and you'll have a few hours to get indoors. After a while 'Too Much Sun' appears and lasts two full days, with the Sim needing to stay out of the sun for it to go away. The vampire's mood will fall through the floor until it's gone. The moodlet manager and day spa can both remove this effect early. Supernatural owners can use sunscreen and the immortal lifetime reward to combat the sun's ill effects.

Vampire Powers:
To sum up all of a Vampire's powers, they receive:

  • Super Speed when running
  • Mind Reading/Control of other Sims
  • No Fatigue from working out at night
  • Massive boost to skill gains at night
  • The ability to turn other Sims into Vampires

The Sims 3 Late Night Vampires

How to feed Vampire Sims
Every single Vampire that is over the age of Young Adult will need plasma. They will have to suck the plasma of other Sims who are friends or higher, or eat Plasma Fruit. They can grow the Plasma Fruit Plant or buy some from the Supermarket. Additionally, Plasma packets can be found in the fridge under 'Quick meal'. Children and Teens eat normal food.

The Sims 3 Late Night Vampires The Sims 3 Late Night Vampires

Here is some information on the Plasma Fruit Plant gathered by Caitie on the forum:

Rarity: Special (obviously)
Fertilizer Strength: Outstanding
Harvest Value: $26-$80*
Growth Time:Fertilized w/ Life Fruit: 8 days
No Fertilizer: 12 days
Yield: 2 fruits
*Note: Because there are no Plasma Plant spawners under buydebug, and no "naturally occurring" plants that I've been able to find, the small end of the range refers to not a "normal" quality fruit, but a "nice" quality, like you would get in a grocery store.

Special Notes on Plasma Plants:

  • Vampires will eat plasma fruit at times in lieu of "plasma" at the source.
  • It grows on a bush, much like a bell pepper or life fruit.
  • The bush tends to produce one fruit, and then another a few days later, at which time the plant dies.  But I did have one bush that coughed up both fruits at the same time.
  • Having a plasma plant on a lot will attract the vampire magic gnome.  Because this is the first time I've ever dealt with plasma plants, I don't know exactly when in the growth process the gnome generates, or even how many plants you need to have on the lot to spawn one. I do know that in my experience, it was generated when my first batch was mature.
  • Cooking with plasma fruit in their inventory (stu surprise, pancakes, waffles, cobbler) will allow a vampire Sim to make dishes that replenish thirst, but this could make normal Sims sick!

How to turn back from being a Vampire
If you are tired of being a Vampire just hop on over to your local Science Facility and pay $3000 to be turned back into a normal Sim!

You can also change back after marriage. If you let your husband of wive choose the option - romantic - then an option appears where he or she can ask you to give up your "supernatural powers" (also work when marrying whitches, fairies and so on - they can also change back). Whenever you select that option, an opportunity appears which will show where to go to change human. If you do nou own late night, and therefore cannot go to the science lab to change back, this is the only option. Change your sim in CAS mode after "testinhcheatsenabled true" does not work, at least not on vampires.

I do think this only works whenever you have a spuse with an other supernatural (or a human) state... I found this option by marrying a whitch with my vampire. As the vampire I could also ask mu spouse hand in his (whitchy) powers.

There is a 50/50 chance they will be a human or a vampire. The human kids look normal. The vampire kids are apple, have glowing eyes, and fangs.

I found a plasma fruit plant in the cemetery in sunnyside in sims 3 late night face the road and its in the right hand can collect the seeds

if you get the Omni plant in buydebug and feed it plasma fruit it will grow a few of them. Hope this helps. It's much quicker than planting a seed

If you have seasons and late nite and have a vampire, will the umbrella thing help with the sun loosely for vampires?

Ive been trying to find a way to turn my vampire family into humans again and all i find is the thing about the science facility but i tried to do that and there is no option at all. is it just a glitch in my game or is there another way?
Do you have the money? Do you have supernatural?

Can vampires have a job like a normal sim? The reason why I ask that is because I'm thinking of making a vampire magician.
Yes they can but remember unless you have Supernatural, you won't be able to spend long hours out in the daylight.

I think the "crazy-fast-skilled vampire child" thing is Late Night only. I have supernatural and the vampire kids go a little faster than normal kids, but it's barely an improvement. Also the fast-skills vampire kids are pureblood vampires only. Any human, fairy, werewolf, witch, ghost or anything other than vampires that sired a halfblood vampire kid will not get the benefits of a a pureblood vampire kid. I am getting Late Night in a month so I can confirm it later.
The only way to get halfbloods is to use mods. The game doesn't create hybrids normally - you're either a vampire or you're not. One of the patches was supposed to calm down the skilling done by vampires as well so it wasn't as fast.

Hmm, I think if you being a celebrity you can receive plasma fruits as gift and can get them by checking mail box.
If I'm not mistaken.
Plasma fruit only comes in the mail if you've been bitten to become a vampire.  Plasma fruit is not in the gift coding of the game as something you can receive as a celebrity.

I had a fairy sim and a witch sim that had a child and the child was a witch at first but once it got half way threw it's teenage years it grew wings and also had the fairy and witch powers, I don't have any mods tho....

Draco says...
Question for the admin? Is it possible for an alien to become a vampire? And or have hybrid children?
Sims can only be one supernatural type at a time, so no aliens can't be vampires. An alien/vampire having children would be 50/50 it comes out one or the other.

My sims cannot change back to human. I have my household in Appaloosa Plains and their science facility does not have the ability to turn vampire to human. I cannot even make my sims travel to other town because I don't have late night expansion. What should I do?

Babbaroni says...
When my Sim turned back into a human she kept "thirst" instead of hunger, still gets "vampiric vigor" moodlets at night, and still has the extra-shiny eyes. I've tried turning her into a werewolf and back, and then into a fairy, but those vampire things won't go away!!! Any suggestions?
22nd July 2014 11:39am
Babbaroni says...
p.s. I have Late Night and Supernatural and I'm playing in Monte Vista and my science facility doesn't have that option, either. Note: I used Bottled Bite of the Vampire to turn her into one, and Potent Cure Elixer to turn her back... but like I said, she kept a few vampire characteristics. I want to get rid of those! I hope someone can help...

How do you find plasma fruit? Or just aquire it? I went to the grave yard thinking it'd be there I found nothing but a few alka root seed things. I can't find it I'm the stores.

Could it be that there is no plasmafruit in SN? I only have SN and no LN, and can't seem to find any plasmafruit. Turning in to a vampire didn't get my any either. I can't find a spawn for them in buydebug but I did find a spawn for plasmainsects? Do they even exist?
9th March 2013 12:14pm
Tiffany says...
For the last time, there is NO PLASMAFRUIT IN SUPERNATURAL. If you want some plasmafruit, simply get Late Night.

Sorry if I sound harsh, but I am getting tired of people asking the same question -_-

hey i have a vampire couple and ive made it so there needs are stop and i keep them out the sun but they keep changing back to human, any idea why?
How are you making them vampires?  If you're using CAS cheat it doesn't work.

I had something different happen. I whoopied with two women with same last name. I didn't realize they were mother and daughter. I turned the mother, but couldn't get a dialog to turn the daughter. When the daughter aged up from young adult to adult a few days later, she became a vampire.

I didn't have any EP's except for The Island Paradise, and the World Adventures but when I downloaded a Sim from the Sims 3 exchange it was a vampire! It had all the vampire moodlets but I couldn't get the Sim to drink anyone's plasma. How did this happen?

So, my witch sim, Taki, married a vampire Sim, Ann, but for some reason, Taki got the opportunity to forsake her witchitude, but she asked Ann to forsake vampire multiple times and Ann never got the opportunity, is this something to be concerned about or do you guys have it too?

Kathy says...
If you're a vampire do you need to sleep in a coffin or can you sleep in a normal bed? And if you turn, does the food in your fridge to to plasma, and can your sim still make regular human sim food?
