The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff
Stuff Pack Features, Objects, and Clothing
By Mr. and Mrs. Flynn Arrowstarr
The Sims 4 Romantic Garden Stuff pack is the sixth stuff pack released for The Sims 4.
Lost Garden of Healing
In the Library, you will find a brand new community lot from Maxis called The Lost Garden of Healing. The garden showcases many of the new objects in Romantic Garden Stuff, including the Whispering Wishing Well and the Fountain of Gluteus Maximus.
Whispering Wishing Well
The Whispering Wishing Well is a powerful object, capable of radically changing your Sims' lives for good or ill. The results are random but can be somewhat influenced by the well's mood:
Clicking on the well brings up the following menu:
- Make a wish (all wishes cost $1 Simoleon)
- Make an offering
If you have the Testing Cheats turned on, there are two more options when Shift-clicking on the well:
- Force Outcomes
- Turn Off/On Wish Cooldown
When presenting an offer to the well, your Sim can offer $100, $1,000 or $5,000 Simoleons. Making a larger offering can influence the well's mood to be more positive. When the well is Happy, the odds of a positive outcome are increased, but there is still no guarantee.
Clicking on Make a wish brings up the possible wishes your Sim can make. Some wishes are only available to certain age groups. See the table below the wish menu for more information.
- Wish for Happiness
- Wish for Romance
- Wish for Simoleons
- Wish for Skills
- Wish for Youthful Vigor
- Wish for Child
- Wish for Better Grades
- Wish for Promotion in X Career (where X is the Career your Sim is currently employed in)
- Wish for Life
A Sim cannot make another wish for approximately 8 hours.
Once a wish is made, the well's eyes glow and the wish is fulfilled. The color of the glow signals the type of result the Sim receives. The table below contains a list of all the possible outcomes for each type of wish.
