I pick up my copy first thing tomorrow, I have the game guide already it looks pretty cool I have been waiting since Sims 3 came out to have the witch thing back since Sims 2 Apartments had it.  I don't remember to well but I think witches had companion pets like dragons and cats, but there are none in this one. I like the Fairies. Toddler Fairies are independent as far as needs. I also like that you can create a Vampire, Witch , Werewolf  and Fairy in the create a sim no more waiting to find them. Vampires also have new abilities as well, oh and you can play as a ghost one household has a Ghost , a Vampire and a Werewolf living together. I will know tomorrow how much more I love this game.. I think they brought "BoneHilda" back from two I'm pretty she she was in Sims 2, but she is in this one.

I know that everyone is really excited and all the individuals that did the download preorder through Origin should be able to download it now.  However, remember the forum rules about making sure to not throw out frivolous posts in your excitement.

My understanding is that the limited edition extra content codes have not been sent out.  Remember to wait for that code before attempting to download the peashooter, bucket/cone hats and new outfits.  Don't forget to register your game on TheSims3.com website and you'll be able to get the registration rewards within a few moments.

I look forward to chatting with everyone in the morning!

Guys, in the US, do you know if Target will release this for 60% off release week? That's how I got KPST, and I'm a little broke, till Friday, and I'd like to take advantage?

Sorry if this is too off topic, but let me know if any deals come up.  :)

Picture of the new Lunar Cycle controls available with the expansion.

I can confirm that werewolves live about 1.5 times longer than a normal Sim and that fairies have a lifespan about 5 times that of a normal Sim.   Witches age normally.   Werewolves have a brown outline around their picture in the relationship panel while fairies have green & witches have gold like the vampires have red from Late Night.

So far I'm enjoying the expansion but I haven't been able to go into real depth yet.  Just having the population controls from the patch was enough for me to enjoy this though really. 

This expansion brings three new gems, three new fish and eleven (11) new plant harvestables.

Just downloaded and am playing it now.  There are a ton of new furnishings, skill items, lights and decorations.  I'm in CAS now creating a witch named Dane Parris.  There a few new hair styles for guys, and some pretty spiffy new tattoos (3 wolves, anyone?).  Not much in the jewelery but you can now give your sims nail polish, though I couldn't get it to re-color.  There are plenty of new clothes available.  The new traits that I've noticed are Brooding, Gatherer, Night Owl, Proper, and Supernatural Fan/Skeptic.  I gave Dane all of these, with him as a fan, of course.

Just from what I've seen, there appears to be a ton of new content and things to do here.  Can't wait to get into it!

I think if you look in the new collections journal (next to the cell phone in your inventory), they might show up. I haven't checked this out yet, but they should.

The new plants, fish and gems only showed up once I had Supernatural installed but they were in my collections journal so I didn't have to go find them.

As soon as I get back in the game I'll write them all down if someone else hasn't.    There are also 10 new cooking recipes with this expansion.

This is all kind of random --

The bookcase door is located in the Door section of Building. It only functions as a door, not as a bookcase.

There's a train set in the playground at the school in Moonlight Falls. One of my fairies used it -- very cute!

Alchemy has 3 associated challenges. The alchemy set is in with hobbies and is not very expensive. I think it costs something to make recipes, like with cooking.

The three new gems are Bloodstone (uncommon), Moonstone(rare) and Sunstone(rare). 

The new fish are Toads(common), Fairy Damsel(rare), and Luminous Salamander(uncommon).

The new plant harvestables are Wolfsbane Flower(common), Red Valerian Root(common), White Caps(common), Porcinis(common), Red Toadstools(common), Ghost Chili(rare), Glow Orbs(rare), Truffles(rare), Spotlight Mushrooms(uncommon), Mycenas(uncommon), and Mandrake Root(common). 

Some of the above need to be bought at the alchemy shop as they're not available at the grocery store.

If you ordered from Origin, here is how to get your plants vs. zombies stuff.

In your e-mail list, you should see "orders (3)."

One e-mail refers to the expansion pack; one has the code for the Plants vs. Zombies Limited Edition; one has the code for the Origin Exclusive Decor. Get the expansion pack first, then register the expansion on the official site. The follow the instructions in the other two e-mails. After you wait a few minutes, the stuff should show up in the "Purchase History" section of your Store Account.

Thanks, MarianT.  I had deleted the 3 emails thinking I already had my stuff, why did I need them?  Luckily they were still in my trashcan.

The plant that shoots peas might be very handy.  I experienced my first in game full moon just before I had to go to bed this morning.  A zombie sim showed up and  just hung around outside growling.  My sim went outside and they made frightened gestures at one another.  The only interaction I think he had was to cast a good luck charm on her, which had no visable effect.  When the sun came up she just vanished like a ghost.  Not a big deal, but having to listen to the growling was a bit annoying.

The graveyard is home to death fish, death flower and ghost chili bush.   I have found mushrooms in several locations around town as well as other plants so it looks like you won't have to buy everything or have a werewolf hunt for a lot of it.  I'm really enjoying alchemy and one of the elixirs is to turn someone into a simbot!

And there is a life fruit plant at the fairy gardens!  I'm taking pictures of everywhere I come across a plant to share with everyone.

Anyone else unable to see their faeries' wings?  And I can confirm they have a MUCH longer life.  I didn't note the actual days, but on Normal, as a young adult, Sunstar Pixiedusk (my sons named her) had nearly 100 days until her Adult birthday.

You sure that Chili Con Carne is a Supernatural related recipe? I'm pretty sure I have that recipe as well, without having this expansion.

I'm playing a fairy/witch couple in my test file, and there are a few new romantic socials. "Ask to be protected" and "Offer to protect" grant both the initiator and target a 2 day moodlet: Promise to Protect. No mood effect, text reads, "Being a guardian is a promise Irvin takes very seriously." Same text for both parties (save the name, of course) regardless of who offered to protect whom. "Confess to watching you while you sleep" grants both target and initiator a 2 day moodlet: Someone to Watch Over Me. +10 mood, text reads, "Scary things just don't seem so scary for Irvin now that he has someone to watch over him." Same text for both parties, again. It is also possible to ask a supernatural to forsake their supernatural status (at least for fairies and witches). Choosing this interaction triggers an opportunity for the target sim (in the case of my witch, it's called "Forsake My Witchitude"). The objective is to go to the science lab and Forsake Witchitude. The reward is: Remove Supernatural Abilities, Remove the Conflicted Moodlet. Conflicted moodlet is a -10 for 8 hours, starting with accepting the opportunity. Text reads, "Will Lasnien give up her powers and become a Human Sim?"

I'm also enjoying playing with alchemy, and I'm working on a spreadsheet with all the elixirs and their formulas, if anyone is interested. It'll be a while, considering there are 44 elixirs to learn.

The furniture in this expansion is absolutely wonderful. EA's best effort in my opinion. There is one bathroom set, one kitchen set, and for living room, dining room, and bedroom, there are three themes, my best description would be that one is sort of a nature theme, furniture made of twisted wood and such, one is sort of a stylized gothic theme, black and grey and reds, purples, etc. and the third is a simpler sort of classic furniture.

I counted in total 213 new build and buy mode items.

Found the answer to this on the sims 3 forum. If you are using a Decensor other than Nraas, it may be the cause, and was in my game.
