The Sims 3 EP 7 Info

Beekeeping Skill- there are smoker effects, and angry swarms of bees, as well as negative moodlets when a Sim has been stung by a bee!

Alchemy Skill/Cauldron Object- there is a cauldron bubbling effect. Potions can be drunk and thrown at other Sims. There many potion sizes, shapes, and effect descriptions, but they are impossible to understand, besides this one:
Clone Drone Potion- the effect creates an adult Sim-sized cloud of a sparkly burst on the ground.
Anti- Nausea Potion
Energy Stabilizer Potion- For a period of time, your energy level won’t decay.
Invigorating Potion- Drink to feel invigorated
Lasting Skill Boost Potion
Inducing Potion- Drink this to feel nauseous.
Smelly Potion- Drink to stink!
Zombification Potion- Become a zombie!

Potion Shop- it says that if you master Alchemy, “you will get discounts on items in the Potion Shop”, which is likely where you purchase ingredients.

Candle Station- There animations for candle flames flickering, the “candle station” starting, and wax dripping. There are actions to “Create Candle”, so I presume that you can make candels with the candle station.

Thanks, Anons:)

  3. ^^Not every fan. I wanted Seasons. Not magic. Bad enough we have unicorns.

  4. I'm going to need a mod removing the beekeeping skill entirely if I want to safely play this expansion.

    Swarms of bees, pixelized or not, turn me into a pathetic pile of tears. I can just see it now, accidentally stumbling across a bee farm and shitting myself.

  5. Aw man. This is honestly not something I really cared for in an EP. Ill probably get it, but I dont care for it too much. >_> Oh well.

  6. All this info people are finding is nice and all but it makes me think people have WAY to much time on here hands to know all this stuff and there are even a few videos on YouTube now showing what these effects do and all so it's nice to get a sneak peak.

  7. I haven't bought any expansion packs since Late Night, but I might get this one. Makin Magic for TS1 was such a fun EP.

  8. I had it with celebrities & vampires! after a while all townies become either celebrity or vampire and having zombies too will be cherry on top ughh!I want seasons :((

    ReplyDelete
  9. ^Thankfully there are Story Progression mods to help with those two things.

    This sounds awesome to me. Makin' Magic was my favorite TS1 EP and I've missed it since then. And the handful of magical items they have at the store just haven't been enough.

    Seasons better be next after this though, I never got to play the TS2 EP.

  10. ...Still no weather?

    Don't really give a poop about Magic, wouldn't fit in a normal world at all so anyone who likes realism, well sucks huh? Could be fun for like 5 minutes in some weirdo magical world but yeah..

  11. Hahaha, might i add -
    This EP sounds amazing
    Stupid potions that make you stink, Beekeeping and now you can make candles! So exciting! All i have to do is pay £25 for the privilege? Oh, wait, what was that EA? I can't go to my local stores 'cus you no longer want to sell Sims 3 games in any damned supermarket or games shop around? Awesome! You made it so easy :D Yeah, i can buy online - But do i have trade in points to use online so i don't have to pay a penny? Nuhhh.

  12. They *just* came out with an EP not 5 days ago... whats with the puppymill, EA?

    I have to agree with QueenBee though... all they seem to be focusing on is magic/space/50's-retro... how about some weather already?

  13. I just want damn seasons!

  14. This might be fun for a few minutes, especially if you're a Harry Potter fan (I might act out all the books now). :)

    But other than that... I'm not really impressed. EA really needs some realistic expansion packs. We need University and Seasons.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Not impressed. Very sorry that they are trying to turn our games into fantasies about wizards and celebrities. As if there are not enough games out there like that anyway.

  16. oh wow, beekeeping. what i always wanted. at long last i can finish my nicholas cage story.

    "listened to *the* fans" doesn't mean every fan or all fans. It means what it says it means. THE fans; of magic-fantasy content.

    1st and 2nd Anon...
    I'm with you. For the first time that I can remember I'm not even pissed at EA for not including this content in a prior EP. It's so packed full of what I wanted I'm way too happy to complain. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Please dear EA people, give us Seasons! This is great, but c'mon, STILL no weather? Just add it in with this one!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't play a magic themed game. Probably never will. But I ADORE this!

    *shrug*

    For the first time in a while, you have done something good EA...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Definitely not interested in the magic part. But I'll probably buy the EP anyway - beekeeping sounds lik fun. I prefer to keep things as realistic as possible in my game. I don't ever play with vampires, ghosts, etc. But that's just me - I can understand that others like that kind of stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I would prefer Seasons as the next one too, but if it's magic, I'll still buy it. I'm enjoying Showtime more than I thought I would.

  23. Time to make BB Walter sim :D

    1. I was really disappointed before thinking that all I want is Seasons, I couldn't care less about magic or bees!
      But now i've been reading more on it... OH MY GOD IT HAS WEREWOLVES!!!!!! *faints* :DDDDDD

      Delete
  24. Oops didn't mean to make that a reply... Oh well lol

    ReplyDelete
  25. Unless they include some awesome objects I've wanted since the base game came out, I'm not getting this. I wouldn't have arr'd showtime if it wasn't for that pool table.

    I want weather just like a lot of people. But what I really want more than anything is an 'open for business' EP. I want my sims to be able to run stores.

    ReplyDelete
  26. ugh, more magic? I'd rather have some weather options or maybe even other sims worlds to explore (like world adventures)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I hope this is true because I'm really loving it. I'm one of those who is still hoping for Seasons, though. And the return of the violin! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. FECK. looks like im SOL on this one. I like realism in my game =( was hoping next would be seasons

    ReplyDelete
  29. It sounds great, Makin' Magic was amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  30. In all reality, this EP probably won't change your game much. I bet all it'll be is, like, 20 items and a few new animations. I wouldn't get too excited; it'll probably be as useless as Generations.

    I'm so glad you mentioned the violin. I thought I was the only one who really wants the return of the violin. Given all the instruments they currently accommodate the violin is an oversight that is long overdue.

    The only other thing I would like to see included in a future EP is swimmable water outside of a pool. Though Seasons has never been a top priority for me, if it includes swimmable water (beach, waterfalls, ponds, etc) which is entirely appropriate in summer weather, I will be sold on the idea.

  32. This ep sounds very interesting. Hopefully they make the werewolf's very bad ass and not kiddy like in sims 2. it kind of sounds like the have to add weather in this one because of the bees and all the shit there adding. cant wait!

    ReplyDelete
  33. what if beekeeping is an activity for summer. Idk maybe I'm just hoping for seasons..

    ReplyDelete
  34. Meh. Not really interested in weather or magic. University or an Open for Business EP would be nice (not that I actually played TS2, but it sounds cool). But I'll arr it anyway like everything else. But, seriously? Beekeeping?! Has anyone ever asked for that? Like, ever? Why… just why?

    ReplyDelete
  35. well. seems like they're pumping out the last-minute eps before they start pimping sims 4.

    yeah, uh. torrenting this like i did showtime.

    ReplyDelete
  36. YES. YES YES YES. I'm not that interested in Showtime, but this? I will be watching for it like a hawk... I love making modern fantasy stuff.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Wow. This might be the first EP since ... forever, I'm most definitely not going to buy. I'm not interested in one thing that's described there. Well, too bad I suppose. Might 'arr it though to see what it's like but EA is not getting my money for something as surreal as that. Sims is supposed to be a life simulation, and vampires and unicorns are bad enough as it is. Seasons, OfB or University would have been so much better and appropriate.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hmmmm, no thank you. I like Showtime, If there is a item that's a must have then I will reconsider.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Personally I'm really excited about this EP. Especially the werewolves. I've said from the release of Late Night, you can't have vampires and not werewolves. It goes against the very laws of fiction! :D I do hope the werewolves are more like the shape-shifter ones, the ones that turn into actual wolves rather than hairy Sims with long ears, fangs, and claws. *crosses fingers*

    ReplyDelete
  40. Seasons is never going to happen with Sims 3. The game isn't built for it. EA would have to completely rewrite the mechanics of the base game and every EP to date. It's just not feasible. The best we can hope for is a Seasons EP for Sims 4. Sorry, guys.
