The Sims 3 Supernatural is focused on bringing new life states to the game, and establishes an appropriate setting for these creatures to live in one town with Moonlight Falls. This guide will cover the largest gameplay additions for owners of this Expansion Pack.

New Occult Life States

Modify supernatural types in create-a-simFirst, let me point out that the new Supernatural states can be selected in Create-a-Sim. So, you can start with Sims of any type save for Mummies, Simbots, Imaginary Friends or the Supernatural Zombie. This means that including those listed below, you can also make Ghosts and Genies in CAS.

Note the new option to customize the look of your Supernaturals. You can change a fairy's wings, give vampires fangs and tattoos and change your Werewolf's look when transformed. Check the links below for full information on each.

Fairies are tricksters that can project Auras that can be beneficial to Sims. They can also shrink down to interact with a few objects. They regain magical power while inside the Fairy House or the new Train Set. You can visit (or woohoo in) the Fairy Arboretum lot. Sims can look for fairies here and get fairy dust, or request to become a fairy themselves.

Werewolves here are the classic type, an ugly distorted face with a very hairy body. Their speciality is their ability to use their heightened senses to hunt insects, gems, and metals. They undergo a forced transformation at the full moon. While in werewolf form they can bite other Sims to curse them with Lycanthropy and make them change two days later.

Witches get a variety of spells to use to benefit themselves and other Sims, curse Sims by turning them into a Toad and can even turn one collectible like a seed into something else, like a gem or fish. They regenerate magical power by flying in the new Broom Arena. They can also magically upgrade objects. Upgrade a wardrobe to make it magical, which will work like the time machine or graveyards catacombs. Sims can also woohoo in a magical wardrobe.

Vampires are not new, they came with Late Night. They come with either expansion. They've been updated a bit to have their own Lifetime Wish, Turn the Town (drink from 20 Sims and convert 5 into vampires). They can wear sunscreen to minimize the effects of the sun, or take the new Immortal lifetime reward to avoid the Sun's effects permanently and stop aging. There are also a few new interactions available to vampires, and their fangs can be customized in CAS.

This new life state is quite Simple. Zombies are socially inept, move slowly, and exist only to annoy Sims with their moaning interactions and an attempt to bite them. If they succeed, the Sim will be transformed to a Zombie for two full days after suffering an apparent death. Protect your garden from these with fences and gates.

The Sims 3 Supernatural - Moonlight Falls by daytime

New Town - Moonlight Falls
Sims players can explore the new town of Moonlight Falls in Supernatural. It's populated with all the appropriate denizens, from Fairies, Vampires to Werewolves and features some nice spooky architecture. The town features the new way to get around, LLAMA (like TARDIS from Dr. Who) allow Sims to step into the phone booth and reappear in another location. This is every bit as good as Bridgeport's subways, and much cooler to use. Sadly, you won't be playing for tips in these booths.

The Sims 3 Supernatural - A Full Moon over Moonlight Falls

Lunar Cycle
The Sims 3 Supernatural features a new Lunar Cycle. This is a 6-day cycle (default, max 10) with multiple moon phases and of course a Full Moon. While the moon is full, Sims will get a big mood boost but may do lunatic actions and start fights, or simply hug other Sims. All Sims seem to benefit the same from this with a +40 mood boost for the entire night. Zombies will spawn during the full moon, and more ghosts will roam the neighborhood. You can stop the lunar cycle or lock it in a particular phase by going to the options menu.

New Skill - Alchemy
Alchemy is the skill to come with SN. Its only purpose is to make potions, although at level 10 they get an opportunity chain to make the Philosopher's Stone (which can also be bought as a LTR. Potion effects range from making a Sim vomit, curing disease, transforming them into Zombies temporarily or permanently, and even making a Sim a young adult again just like the super-expensive Young Again LTR. Another big feature of this is the ability to make potions that transform a Sim into the various Supernatural states at will.

New Career - Fortune Teller
Fortune Teller is a traditional rabbit hole career that works out of the new Gypsy Caravan lot. Upon reaching level 6 in the career, you'll get to choose between the Mystic and Scam Artist paths. Mystics are very good at giving Sims private readings, while Scam Artists can make big money hosting a Psychic Convention.

The Sims 3 Supernatural - Fairies with Bonehilda living quarters in the left

Bonehilda is the most horrific maid a Sim can hire. Purchase Bonehilda's Living Quarters from Buy Mode - Sort by Function - Entertainment - Misc for $3,999. Once purchased, she can be summoned and dismissed by clicking on the Living Quarters. While out and cleaning, she can also repair broken objects. However, squeamish Sims will run in terror from her.

One of the new recipe ingredients is Honey. Sims can buy Beekeeping boxes in the Outdoor - Outdoor activities tab. Use the smoke interaction before harvesting, cleaning or feeding the bees to avoid getting stung. Honey is harvestable in the morning and afternoon (3am and 2pm seem to be the times). There's about a 75% chance your Sim will also get a honeycomb with the honey, which is worth at least $35 but can be worth significantly more. Honey itself is $14.

The Sims 3 Supernatural - A Werewolf Walks through the Park

New Traits, LTRs and LTWs
There are nine total new Lifetime Wishes. All relate to either one of the Supernatural life states, Alchemy, or the new Fortune Teller career.

Supernatural Lifetime Rewards:
Alpha Dog
Flying Vacuum
King of the Fae
Magic Hands
Philosopher's Stone

Supernatural Traits:
Night Owl
Supernatural Fan
Supernatural Skeptic

New Collectibles and Recipes
There are three new gems available: bloodstone, moonstone and sunstone along with 3 cuts (sun, moon, gemdust). Three new fish: toads, fairy damsel fish and luminous salamanders. There are about a dozen new cooking recipes with Supernatural, and many new plants.

Admin, I just have to ask, WHY DO THE WEREWOLVES BARLEY CHANGE during transformation?! I thought they were werewolves, not wereogres!

Simnesia says...

I got this expansion pack, and it's great. But after a while, my game started freezing.

Why is this happening? (I request admin help)
23rd September 2013 12:44am
ChemistryWolf says...
I don't know. Mabye it's your computer, not the disk. The game freezes on me too, but after a while it unfreezes, often in less than 1 minute.

Hey Carl,
I really thank you for helping me out with all the tips and info on your site, you really have become pretty popular amongst Simmers. I have a serious problem-I'm sure you can help, I have two sims, one is a witch, the other is a vampire. My vampire drank the Zombification elixir, the one my witch made and my vampire can't bite people, like it won't make them turn into zombies. When I click on other sims, my zombie only has the following options: Arghhh, Braaaaaiiins etc. I tried all the options available, but the other sim won't turn.
I think you would know how to solve this problem.

Can we possibly get a printable version of this or a pdf file that we can email??
Sorry, but I don't have the Guide available in that type of format, but it's been discussed and I'm considering something like it. Trouble is, it'd take quite some time on my end to figure out and I'd want the Guide in a better state, finalized.

JustShanny says...
Hey there, I have a question.
I adore vampires and wish to turn mine into vampires since they're all human Sims right now. Using the mailbox I chose for one of my Sims to 'know everyone' in hopes I can find out who's a vampire in my town without spending hours trying to get the 'hunted' moodlet.. however it doesn't actually say!
The only thing showing which Sims are of Supernatural Life State is that they have a glow around their picture in the relationships section. They all have different coloured glows, but I'm not sure what they mean? Do different coloured glows signify what Supernatural type they are? Is there an easier way to change my Sims into vampires?
23rd November 2013 4:22pm
Cassidy says...
Vampires don't come with Supernatural, they come with Late Night. I don't know if you can get them with Supernatural. Also before you get turned into a vampire, you have to befriend one. Or you can make a sim into a vampire by going into Create-A-Sim and going to accessories and clicking on the little "v" mark at the bottom.
2nd July 2014 6:19pm
you're welcome says...
Vampires come with both Supernatural and Late Night, they're just expanded on in Supernatural.

Does anybody know how to put the Gypsy Caravan in another town? When I go into Edit Town it's not in the catalog for public areas/buidlings.
23rd June 2014 6:17pm
lindsay says...
you have to go to edit town (while in moonlight hollow) and hover over the caravan and then select copy. once you copy it, you can add it to other towns

Recently, my sims have had twins. My sim Jackson is a witch and Margie is a human. When they had their babies, I was terrified. Lucian, one of the babies, had a negative moodlet from using too much "magic". I'm a little confused, he's an infant? How could this be? Also, Jackson could not feed him or put him in his crib. It kind of worried me! I didn't want my baby sim being taken away because of starvation!

Can a sim have more than one supernatural type? I want a fairy and a witch to mix since I have an evil sim and I want the fairy's evil wings but the witch's evil magic power. Does anyone have any ideas?
14th October 2013 10:01pm
Simmylala says...
Your Sim cannot be a Fairy and Witch at the same time, it is impossible to mix two different types of Supernaturals together.
14th July 2014 5:04am
Denise says...
Why cant i have a baby whit a fairy and vampire? Also why cant i change the supermatural type of my fairy??

Donald says...
one of my sims always runs around like they are being attacked by bees. is there anyway to fix this?
2nd February 2014 8:55pm
Simmylala says...
Do you keep bees on your home lot? I recommend moving or deleting it if this occurs a lot (if you delete the Beekeeping Box, then you will no longer produce honey, but you can buy it from the supermarket). A few stings mean they're busy bees, which also means high-quality honey!

If not, did your Sim pass or visit a neighbour's home that keeps bees? I recommend to stop going to that neighbour's house or if they are your Sim's friend, then invite them over to your house instead.

Hopefully this helped :)

TheCitySim says...
I didn't look at the forum...but if you have ever played the game, they have something like the TARDIS, but it's called the LLAMA. They're all around town, and are a great way to travel. I must warn you though, it might scare your sim, and they might faint.

Kelley says...
I can't make my imaginary friend a witch. I have the elixer made. She's a teen and I have given the potion to her. She can't use it on herself and when I try to have another sim use it on her, she isn't even an option. I am so confused. I haven't reset her, she did just grow up from a child to a teen though.
Imaginary Friends can only ever be imaginary friends.  They're not allowed to become a different occult and I'm not sure they can have a potent cure elixir used on them either.

Paoli says...
I switched my werewolf to human and then to a witch, but she never has enough magic to do any thing. The magic bar will appear full, but she will get the magic depleted moodlet and all her spells fizzle. help?

White Papllion says...
What bait can you use to catch vampire fish?
25th October 2013 11:12am
Simmylala says...
Vampire fish bait is Angelfish. You must have a high fishing skill, but if you have the island Paradise EP, then your Sim can learn diving and find Angelfish at diving spots ;)

I have a Genie and I want to turn her into a regular human, so that I can make her a Plantsim afterwards. Do Genies get cured by a Potent Cure elixir or not?

Can Supernatural sims go to university?
There is no restriction on travel for any type of Sim.  So yes occult Sims can go to University.  There will also be supernatural Sims when you get to University.

Sierra says...
I have a fairy and a witch in a relationship. They are both members of my active household, and their relationship bar is filled. They are only listed as romantic interests. I haven't seen the option to have them go steady or get married. But, one can ask the other to forsake the Fae or witchood. I don't want either to quit being a witch/fairy. Is there a way for them to get married without doing so?
There shouldn't be anything in the way of them getting married.  It's not there when they are "extremely irresistible"?   You may need to reset them or it could be you need to start the relationship over.   This bug has been talked about a couple of times on the forum with various fixes.

Hey Carl my fairy is pregnant and my man tod her to forsake her fea and there is no arrow that shows(on top of the moodlet box)to forsake her fea plz help!!*:)

Thunderstorm460 says...
You must have the fairy arbouretum in your town. If you're playing in Moonlight Falls, it should already be there. If not, go to edit town, then find the town objects and place the fairy thing, then go back into play mode and click on the fairy thing. It should have the "Forsake Fairy" opportunites there. Hope I helped, Thunder. (even though this is probably written way past when you need it.)

How do you change the vampire's fangs? I've checked CAS and the mirror like you do to change the mermaids scales, but I can't find anything. Help?
1st June 2014 1:44pm

Your Sim cannot change Vampire Fangs.
14th July 2014 5:10am

If you are already a werewolf, can you use the fairy dust in a jar on yourself and be a werewolf AND a fairy?

Does anybody know if i can get a ghost fairy? I know you can make witches, werewolves, vampires, and fairies woohoo, but can ghosts woohoo with a fairy and get a ghost/fairy baby?

You can only make hybrids with a Hybrid Mod, fairly certain you can find that mod somewhere. :)
