The Realm of Magic Game Pack releases on September 10, 2019 for PC and Mac. Console players will find it available a bit later, on October 15. The new pack features several new additions:
Spellcasting – 24 new spells across 3 magical disciplines
Alchemy – 15 potions can be crafted
Glimmerbrook and Magic Realm – Two new locales. Five standard lots in Glimmerbrook, 1 very large lot in Magic Realm (editable via cheats)
Brooms – a new mode of transportation
Familiars – Animal companions that fly around your Sim, providing protection and passive bonuses.
Magical Build/Buy items, like a functional Cauldron
Check back for our coverage of the developer livestream where we’ll learn more about all of these features. I’ll be covering the stream to give you a great, concise summary within a day of its posting. In the meantime, we’ll publish things we learn here on the frontpage.
Reviews aren’t my thing, but I took a stab at it with this coverage of The Sims 4 Moschino Stuff Pack. I focus mostly on the photography. You’d be surprised, but there isn’t that much fashion in this pack, it’s more about fashion photography.
Extensive poses and means of controlling Sims to get them in the correct spot are available via a new mark you can place on the floor. The new subject marker, camera tripod, and even lighting are live-draggable to allow you to put them in your inventory.
I’ve created a new Youtube Video ahead of the upcoming Photography Patch releasing with Moschino. The new patch offers a couple of things freely. First, you’re now able to place photos on a table, resulting in the game creating an automatic stand-style photo frame for you. It’s possible to resize these to a degree.
Additionally, you can click the photo while it’s hung on the wall to change the frame to something that matches your room’s decor.
The developer livestream was a good opportunity to learn all about what Moschino offers to players through its extensive photography features.
Readers who use adblock or those who'd like to thank us for our efforts can now pledge $1/$5 monthly via Patreon to help us retain the freedom to do what we love to do.

Let's Play Playlist
New I now have a guide to Making Super Sims in The Sims 4. Look for a text version within the next 72h. It won't have THAT much more info but it will help out as a checklist.
This was inspired by a series, "Let's Play a Super Sim" in which I start at toddler and gradually take on the major bonuses. Here's a link to each part for people who are interested. You can also see the Let's Play as a Playlist on Youtube.
The Sims 4 Discover University has been announced for November 15 for PC/Mac and December 17 for Xbox and Playstation 4 consoles. Click to learn more about the pack, see my summary of the livestream or read our FAQs below.
