I love this EP! I havn't gone into depth with all of the Occults because I have been so obsessed with Fairies  :P . THe only thing I dont like about this EP is that in Moonlight Falls a lot of the community lots are combined

The fairies are my favorite too! Vamps have never been too exciting for me, and the werewolves are cool for the hunting thing but other than that I got bored of them. The witches and alchemy are pretty neat, but nothing beats the fairies for me!

I haven't had the chance to explore anything but I love the new plants and seeds. I haven't had a chance to use them for anything yet though. I wish I could say that I am enjoying it but the zombie infestation is really getting old. Especially with them coming during the day. I find them worse than roaches.

The gifting thing is pretty cool but being that I have no idea what these elixirs and things do yet I am not all that excited about it. I am currently going through the guide to get some insight.

I didn't know there was a new update. For some reason my launcher didn't inform me of an update. Is it possible that it does it on it's own?

The actual expansion is brilliant, I've had so much fun trying everything out. Bonehilda is hilarious! Although she has emptied my bookcase and my nooboos will need counselling... On the downside and I'm not sure if this is because of supernatural but it was working up until then, after a while sims 3 crashing and I get the usual not responding box. I thought I'd solved it by telling it to run it as if it were on an XP computer but still it didn't help. I love the actual expansion I just wish I didn't have to be paranoid about saving...

Bonehildas seem to have odd personalities. I lock the Bonehildas out of the Nurseries, never put a bar in, and don't have a dj booth. What does she do? Go for the hopscotch. Sold that too.  ;D

Supernatural has some interesting genetic outcomes. Yesterday I was playing with a Witch I made in CAS and she had a baby with Peanut Bahl. And it turns out you can have a mixture of Occults.
So here is a Ghost who can also spell cast.... I didnt think you could mix genes like that

Yes.  And if you have more than one they'll still fight over the same one.

If there is a nooboo on the lot, they will also fight over who gets to rock with the baby in the rocking chair. Popping wishes left and right, as the go.

I just got Supernatural and haven't logged a lot of time in yet, but I have to say, I'm really enjoying it.  I had rejected it for Seasons, but the talk of new plants and bees got my interest, so I finally succumbed and purchased it and am glad I did!

I love the town, which is very beautiful.  My favorite town before this had been Sunset Valley, and this reminds me of SV some, but is more beautiful and intriguing, I think.  Right now, I'm just enjoying exploring the town. 

Like other people, I also love the new plants and am really enjoying gathering them and the beekeeping too.  I also really like the fairies, and have only played as a fairy so far.

I haven't even had trouble with the zombies yet, but I imagine I will....just haven't played long enough yet to hit the full moon.  I like the ghosts, though--they're fun, and I like that there is an option to ask them "how they kicked the bucket"! 

I'm really glad I got this EP!

I really like Supernatural. I just got it today (along with Seasons), and I love the new CAS features like how you can make the ears pointed, and rotate them around like a dog or elf. I made an elfy looking "human" earlier, and he was a night owl (one of the new traits). It's pretty cool because staying up late makes you have a +10 moodlet, even when your sim is really tired. I'm a little scared to try the wolfy and fairy people. I'm afraid they'll get humiliated somehow haha.

I'm having fun with this for sure. Witches are great, especially as alchemists -- fill all your needs at will, upgrade stuff much faster than Handiness can, and so on. Faeries are good too, though I really don't use the pranks. I'm a wuss about being nasty to townies.  ::) Plus, I'm a slavedriver who keeps her Sims too busy to socialize much with "outsiders", which I should really change.

Haven't played a werewolf yet, they don't strike me as very interesting. Of course, my image of werewolves is pretty much defined by the Werewolf: the Apocalypse RPG. Hairy humans with deformed faces and puppydog mannerisms just don't remotely jive with that. I also don't have direct experiences with ghosts or vampires yet. As someone who generally can't stand bloodsuckers, I'm annoyed that they get to have some scary/dangerous vibes as much as this family-friendly game allows, yet werewolves don't. Also, the few times my Sims tried to talk to a vampire, they were impossible to deal with since almost every dialog option resulted in boredom and a relationship drop. Bah.

Moonlight Falls is awesome, it's the only EA-made town aside from Appaloosa Plains that I love and actually want to play in. It's very spacious and the remote forest theme suits me well.

I got supernatural yesterday and so far I'm really enjoying myself. I started by playing around in CAS (Impressed) and then played around again. I settled on playing an occult couple (Witch and a Fairy) who will raise a family in Moonlight falls and attempt to complete their lifetime wishes. I love the scenery in Moonlight Falls and I love the fairy garden. Great expansion in my opinion.

I am having lots of fun with this expansion :D As i consider myself a vampire-enthusiast and would surely - if possible - do EVERYTHING(normal) to become one in real life i must say i like the fact that you can create a vampire in CAS! I also like the new city, so magic, so nice so ...(speachless) and all of these new "vintage" objects! The developers must have made the game for me!

"After Mihai married the famous Elvira Slayer and become a 5-star celebrity, he decided it was time to move on with his life, wanting a quiet place , where he can spend the rest of his years in peace."

3 months later...

"One day, while taking a walk in the forest, a grenish ghastly mist started spreading around the town and he was unable to find his way back, for no reason he fainted...Will this be his end?"

"I wake up in a huge town , like taken out of a story-book, there are fairies, werewolves, witches and vampires alike...What have i gotten myself into?!"

I may upload a fanfic ( and complete a challenge? ) based on my adventures ^^(Yea it's my sim-self)

My first impressions of Supernatural were as follows;

•Moonlight Falls is huge and exactly as described
•The female outfits are lovely, for males not so much
•The female hair styles are amazing
•There are plenty of large families to play around with

I am very impressed with Supernatural on the whole, although the furniture wasn't as great as I expected. However, the additions for children were very nice indeed.

I am loving everything, especially all the occults (obviously), and the clothes and hairstyles! I also love how with many of the paintings there's a "good" and "bad" aspect--like the witch painting. Usually, the painting is of a pretty witch smiling, but at times it changes into an evil, angry green-skinned witch! It's very cool when seeing the change in-game.

The things that I love here are witches, new set of clothes, some facial hairs and new hair especially that bald one lol.
Several items too are quite interesting, my favorites so far are "Spectrum Mood Lamp" and "Orb of Answers" although I haven't try all the feature that Supernatural provide. I feel that I still didn't explore much about this expansion. I do play as witch, fairy and genie once, but only limited to that. I do alchemy things and that is quite interesting and hauntings painting also is kinda cool.

I do love when they reintroduced the smustle dance here and give a new feature about new population control!
The lunar cycle is kinda cool, but rather troublesome especially when it come to Sims with insane or supernatural fans trait
and ...zombies. I hate zombies when they spawn and ruin my garden...

For traits: Gatherer trait is my favorite and Proper is the second from this expansion.

I just picked up Supernatural last week and absolutely love it. The sheer amount of new content and new interactions adds so much to the richness of the game, and I love that you can turn off the various supernatural life states so you can still play a normal-ish town if you want. That plus the ability to halt the moon cycle (thus avoiding zombies!) is very convenient.

My favorite things thus far:

The new clothing. I think EA went above and beyond to create such creative and diverse outfits. Though...I do wish that the leaves on the child fairy outfit were recolorable.

Alchemy. You can vastly influence the town by tossing a few potions here and there, something which is a great advantage when playing a dynasty. Got a sim you want to hang around for a while? Turn him or her into a vampire or a fairy, then Potent Cure them later on, or just hit 'em with the fountain of youth elixir. In my test file I had my witch alchemist (Mortimer!) throw an opposite personality elixir followed by a fountain of youth elixir at Vita Alto to a very interesting effect. Vita is now younger than her daughter (temporarily--Holly is a fairy) and has the Good and Easily Impressed traits instead of Evil and Snob. The next thing I knew she and Nick were divorced and she was dating a werewolf Thornton Wolff! Talk about changing the dynamics of the town!

Gem-U-Cut Machine. A quick and easy way to get rich especially if you have a werewolf around to hunt for the good gems. Between that and the Midas Touch elixir and it's almost too easy to make money.

Fairies. The entire reason why I got the SN expansion in the first place. The interactions and animations are just adorable. The fairy tricks are just hilarious! I had Darlene Bunch torture her brother Arlo with Gold and Toads a few times--poor guy was coughing up gold for days.

Stuff I'm not all that enamored with:

Zombies. Yuck. Ew. Gross. I'm keeping the moon phase on waxing gibbous, thank you very much.

Pestilence Plague. Nice if you want to torture your sims, but the constant waking up with the coughing fits is irritating to say the least.

The Philosopher's Stone. Because the very first time I used it, THIS happened:



Thankfully Morty had a death flower (courtesy of his two fairy roommates) but still...the first time? I'm not taking that chance again. :P

All in all this is my favorite expansion yet. :)

Just got Supernatural today...
My werewolf found a tiberium and used the machine to cut it  already. And elixirs are fun :D.

Also, I seem to  be having issues getting the peashooter. I downloaded it and installed it but... It hasn't shown up in game.

It'll be under Decor -> Plants in "Sort By Type" mode - it might help you find it if you filter for store content. If it's not there, try uninstalling and reinstalling it from the launcher.
