I have to say, the Supernatural expansion pack may be my favorite so far. I’ve had less than a week to play it, but there’s just so much great stuff. I don’t even know where to begin.
For various reasons, I packed up the family and moved them to the new town that came with the expansion pack. They are back on a regular Earth, with green grass and trees and stuff. It still seems a little novel to me, after all that time on Lunar Lakes.
I started by buying them a beehive. Which I placed next to the mailbox. Because that is where beehives usually go. I’m pretty sure about that.
Things went smoothly the first time I sent Princess Idris to maintain the hive. But the next time, I “forgot” to have her smoke the hive first.
Oh no, bees!
I nearly choked on my coffee, it was that funny. (In real life, I am terrified of bees.)
Wow, that is one ugly Townie Sim. I’m almost jealous.
Franco and Titanium went for a nice sedate walk. I love the look of terror on a Sim’s face the first time they go horseback riding.
By the way, Titanium has turned into an Elder. I don’t know how much longer he has to live. I will genuinely miss him. I get far more attached to my pet Sims than I do my people Sims. It’s part of why I rarely add a pet. It’s too hard to lose them!
But let us set that aside for now. Hi-ho Titanium, awaaayyyy!!
The moon cycles with Supernatural. Once a week, it’s a full moon.
When the moon is full, zombies attack! They appear on your property and wander around moaning and being gross and trying to eat your garden.
Why are you thinking about Idris? And get away from my horsie!
Ugh, go away, you horrible thing!
In exchange for pre-ordering the expansion pack, I got a special Plants Vs Zombies tie-in bundle. This includes peashooters, which repel zombies.
However, you have to place the peashooter in just the right place. When it works, it’s pretty great! When the zombies just walk around behind the peashooter, it is less amusing.
(The wall-nuts are apparently just for show. But I had to place them anyway, because obviously.)
The zombies try to eat your garden. I had cleverly foiled them – so I thought – by putting a fence around it. But I neglected to lock the gate.
Luckily, a velvet rope is an impenetrable barrier to zombies, as well as regular Sims.
Unable to eat the garden, the zombies settled into the rocking chairs I had placed outside. But they didn’t rock; they just sat there. Creepy.
Here’s another new thing with Supernatural: Bonehilda the live-in maid has returned from The Sims 2. Here we see her cleaning up the newspapers that get left on the front porch every day.
Bonehilda also helps a lot with the baby.
Oh, did I mention there’s a baby? I got so distracted with the zombies. Anyway, his name is June.
June seems to adore Bonehilda. Probably because she’s always changing and feeding him. Idris seems less enthusiastic.
June grew up alone, while everyone else was distracted by something or other. Zombies or bee swarms or who knows what.
But Bonehilda was there to celebrate with him.
She appears to be giving him a tender, if skeletal, kiss. I imagine it makes a clacking noise.
