Guide to DLC Additions and Gameplay Features

The Sims 4 Jungle Adventure Game Pack

The Sims 4 Jungle Adventure Game Pack releases February 27, 2018. This new pack is reminiscent of The Sims 3 World Adventures, which allowed players to explore ruins in three destinations. Jungle Adventures features one large jungle-themed travel destination: the land of Selvadorada. Players have an ancient temple to explore, new skills, a new culture and thus new foods and themed decor that is very Mayan in appearance.

Travel to Selvadorada

Sims can choose to travel to Selvadorada at any time, and can rent a bungalow for a set price each day. More lavish accommodations are available. While in Selvadorada, they can experience the local cuisine, festive music, or go exploring. Sims can travel alone or bring a large group, along with their kids and pets.

At first, places on the map are blocked but as you adventure you will unlock destinations that you can travel to at any time.

Adventures in the Jungle

Exploring the Jungle, and a view outside the temple

While visiting Selvadorada, you'll be able to purchase supplies to help you adventure safely. At first you'll be setting off into the unknown, but will gradually get to know the lay of the land and carve a path through overgrowth that lets you advance deeper into the jungle. Hidden in the jungle is an ancient temple, fraught with traps and creatures both natural and mystic. Inside, Sims will have to solve puzzles and overcome challenges and near-death experiences to advance. The temple will reset for future explorers, and several layouts exist so that the experience will not go stale so quickly for you should you return with future Sims.


A full guide to the Sims 4 Jungle Adventure's Archaeology skill and all its abilities - from dig sites to excavations and surveys, you can find ancient Omiscan treasures and verify the authenticity of artifacts. Also introduces the relics system - tops and bases, which produce strong magical effects that benefit your Sims.

A new Archaeology Skill is available in Jungle Adventure

The pack features a new Archaeology skill that Sims can level. The new skill couples with new artifacts that can be assembled from parts, as well as valuable treasures. The skill is also relevant inside the temple, as you can sometimes use it to get through obstacles. It is certainly possible to make a living with the new skill. We don't yet know what types of powers artifacts may bestow to Sims that find them but will certainly write about them in the near-future.

Selvadoradian Culture Skill

The Selvadoradian Culture Skill teaches new dance moves, survival tips and recipes

This skill seems to be a mashup of various types of skills. You appear to learn new recipes and dance moves, but also helpful advice for surviving in Selvadorada.

New Stuff

Architecture and temple decor are clearly inspired by the Maya

The pack features a wide variety of other things. According to livestreams and info released by the Sims team, the pack as at least:

  • Skeletons - not a new life state. It seems more like a curse. It's been hinted there is a benefit to befriending them.
  • Build and Buy Mode items based around a jungle/Mayan type theme
  • Two Aspirations: Jungle Explorer and Archaeology Scholar
  • Two radio stations: Latin pop and Traditional Latin
  • Three new fish types
  • Three harvestables: avocado, black bean, and something more mystical
  • Two new lot traits
  • A new death type
  • New recipes - likely largely connected to Selvadoradian Culture Skill
  • Relic and Artifacts - also, fake relics and artifacts!
  • Two Collections: Ancient Omiscan Artifacts and Omiscan Treasures
  • A new collection case: Used for displaying treasures. Make your own museum!

It's absolutely beautiful. Lots of eye candy, and the new Archaeology skill seems fun - who knows what the relics do. I think it is the main focus for me. I'm curious about the Selvadoradian Culture skill and what all it might unlock, as well.

I can't find it on Origin to order it. Today is the 27th. Even if there is a delay in getting the game out, can't we pre-order?? I'm so excited to get it! lol

I can't wait to play this! It seems very similar to World Adventures from Sims 3, but I love exploring and travelling! I'd like to take a moment and thank you Carl, for your extremely helpful guides. I wouldn't even have known of many of the game's features if it wasn't for you. I've been reading them since Sims 3 and will never stop!

Can we take a curse off of someone?
1st March 2018 11:45pm
There are various way to cure the various curses. Look to the notifications in game but basically some ways are to get very happy, to get all needs to maxed, drink an antidote and so on.
2nd March 2018 4:35pm

Avocado and black beans, yum~ Wish my sims could make rice with black beans and avocados or bananas

I have been to the Jungle many times...still do not have the ability to open the one entrance with the stone doors. Keeps saying not this time, maybe next vacation. Any ideas or suggestions?
31st December 2018 2:52pm
You need to just keep leaving and returning until the RNG mechanics allow your sim to open it. It can be super annoying for sure! It initially took my 6 visits to open the doors that leads into the garden past the swimming area.
1st January 2019 5:29pm
That's what I was afraid of! Lol! Thank you for the response.
1st January 2019 5:37pm
Deligracy used tents and stuff in her game and I was wondering if anyone would say thats almost necessary as the adventure seems quite long and I usually cheat so I'm trying not to thx Smile
1st March 2019 1:27pm
Depends how you play, I managed with just a stack of fruit for food and was fine. Other people find they have to take a tent so their sim can sleep half way through. Good idea to take the various articles from the vendors that help with exploration like the waterfall in a bottle (shower) etc. This Guide (click) will help you to get your sim started.

I have time adjusted to 1/3 through MCCC (setting of 75), I leave early in the morning, and I wrap up the day's adventure around dinner time. Since a lot of interactions take X amount of game minutes whether you adjust time or not, the MCCC setting mostly saves walking time.
