I like everything but the sparkling vampires part. At least we can choose if we want them to sparkle or not with a potion.

I hadn't noticed this mentioned here so thought I would. It seems the magic items from there store will be getting an upgrade with Supernatural also.

Posted by SimGuruSarah

Hello Simmers!

I’m here to tell you about how the The Sims 3 Supernatural is going to enhance existing magic items that are available on The Sims 3 Store! These items will not be included in Supernatural, but if you’ve purchased them from the Store, you’ll get the benefits of these special effects:

Brewing potions in Lord Vladimir’s Magic Cauldron will increase your Sim’s Alchemy Skill, and Sims can conjure components in the cauldron that will be needed for crafting within the Alchemy system.

Telling fortunes and peering into The Soothsayer’s Crystal Ball will give a job performance bonus if the Sim is a member of the Fortune Teller career!

Performing the magical interactions on Lady Ravendancer Goth’s Book o’ Spells and the Malleable Mimic Voodoo Doll will increase your Sim’s hidden Spellcasting Skill. You will be able to use the Voodoo Doll to curse other Sims and turn them into a zombie! You will also be able to use the Voodoo Doll to bless zombie Sims and cure them of their affliction.

Lastly, there will be a new interaction on the Voodoo Doll, “Transform!” This is only available when a Voodoo Doll is bound to a Werewolf or a Fairy. You’ll have to wait to play The Sims 3 Supernatural to find out what that does specifically.

There is a lot more news to come, so stay tuned. As always, keep asking your SimGurus questions on the forums.

Thanks,
SimGuruSarah

I did know about this but I forgot where I read it lol. I have all of the objects so I'm thrilled.

One last thing to mention, vampires have a new immortal lifetime happiness reward that has a number of effects. Having this reward will completely stop them from aging, allow them to be in the sun without any penalties, will never have them be rejected when taking a drink of blood from another Sim and will need less plasma in order to survive. However, side effects of this reward may include slight sparkles…!


I think it's hilarious. :P I always seem to make my vamps (Who I've only had a few of) these pretentious pretending-to-be-evil types. So imagine if they went around like Edward Cullen, Mr Abhorred So-Called Fairy/Vampire himself. ;D

I was surprised when I read about sparkling vampire deal.
Sounds to much like to constant sparkles we had with Eye Candy when it first came out. They finally fixed that because of all the complaints and now they are going to do it again.

They just had to make Vampires sparkle didn't they. *Groans*

I'm looking forward to the Fairys most, love their outfits and hairstyles and their wings are so pretty. Love that they can fly and the little Fairy houses are so cute, can't wait to try out the Fairy ring too.

Can't wait to play a witch too, super excited about being able to fly on a broom, engage in spellcasting duels, cast spells and learn Alchemy. Looking forward to turning someone into a toad, lol. I hope the Lady Ravendancer Goth’s Book o’ Spells bug with pets will be fixed though.

Werewolves will be interesting, keen to try out their hunting skills, they seem pretty funny.

Not too keen on Zombies, if they destroy my garden I will be steamed! Hopefully a fence and a locked gate will keep them out, those Peashooters are darn cute!

I'm so happy that Toddlers get a Rocking Horse, yay! They haven't had any new toys since Generations, can't wait to whoohoo in the wardrobe too, lol, Fortune Telling also looks intersting.

Keen for this expansion, I love Supernatural stuff.  ;D

I actually kind of like that they did it that way--seems like a good compromise to me. Nobody is forced to have sparkly vampires, but the option is there for those who might want them.

I think I'm actually most looking forward to the new CAS options--the different skin tones and pointy ears. And of course the ability to make supernaturals right from the beginning. More long-haired options for men, too, which I like. I do worry, however, that random townies are going to show up wearing traffic cones on their heads.

Honestly, the three things I've been waiting for since the Sims 3 came out are pets, supernatural, and seasons. So I am a happy simmer. :)

The sparkles almost look like snow to me, nothing like Twilight vampire sparkles. I wasn't crazy about the sparkles either but they look OK, more Simish less Twilightish.

I'm more excited for weird little things like beekeeping and indoor planters and more recipes/harvestable plants.

Contrary to my own personality, I tend to create sims who are skilled outdoorsmen; beekeeping holds a lot of ingame appeal for me. This sounds silly, but I will find it very fun!

From what I have read, zombies will be fond of destroying other sim's plants. I will definitely want those peashooters for my community gardens. Still, they would be fun to play. [cue obligatory nefarious chuckle]

If a witch changes lifestate and back again, I wonder if their abilities shall be retained or if they must relearn each spell from scratch.

Generations brought chemistry to the logic skill, I wonder how it will sync with alchemy.

EDIT: With WA in mind, witches should be able to fend off mummies with ease (I shall abuse this factor gleefully), and maybe their ice spell can disable fire traps too. 8)
EDIT: In fact, the first thing I shall do is make an evil witch a celebrity. Paparazzi = endless supply of victims.

SimsVIP has linked to a german site that has 55 screenshots of Supernatural's Female CAS items.  If you're curious, click the link to go see what there is.

Edit: Another link to SimsVIP where you can take a link to the same german site to see the 47 male CAS items from Supernatural.

I have seen some of it, and i like the style. Especially the nature themed or medieval kind of clothes. But modern ones look great, too. This will be the greatest expansion ever, who knows, maybe even better than seasons ;)

Those men's jackets are very debonair, I approve! I am more fond of these clothes than the usual reaction (horror, disgust, melodramatic wrath). I mean this game is very expensive, I should hope that my sims have something nice to wear!

And EA has no idea how many characters of mine need formal jackets and other fancy things. I'm stoked!

The thing I like the most about those clothes is the potential for mixing and matching. I've noticed a lot of promotional material features Sims wearing "dresses" that are actually a combination of a Supernatural skirt and top. It's a pretty cool system - it not only allows more versatility but it also doubles the number of recolourable channels on the outfit.  :)

I am simply ecstatic about this expansion. The more I read the more excited I become. I had no idea how absolutely perfect it would be for my Harry Potter world! Thrills!
