Your Sims – they’re just like us. They pay bills, work long hours, take care of their families, and take out the trash. And, especially at this time of year, they could really use a vacation. Luckily, The Sims 4 Outdoor Retreat and The Sims 4 Jungle Adventure arrive on Xbox One today! Below are some foolproof ways to help your Sims relax with each new pack.
Granite Falls is home to some lovely vacation rental homes. But if your Sims are ready for the great outdoors, they can set up camp near a waterfall! Ahh, the soothing sounds of naturally (digitally) occurring beauty.
One of the perks of this pack is gazing at the stars. Whether with friends or on a date, this is an awesome way to enjoy nature at its finest. But, really, what about napping under the stars? That’s an even better way to unwind.
Another way to light up the night is by building a campfire and having some bonding time with other Sims. They can grab something from the cooler, kick back, and tell stories around the embers. There is one thing to remember, though. Telling a ghost story after 7 p.m. (in-game time) could bring an actual ghost to your Sims’ gathering. Not exactly a great way to chill.
Going on vacation often means feeling warm and fuzzy while making memories. And what better way to do that than dress up in a bear costume? Exactly. A literal way to be warm and fuzzy with loved ones. Wow, your Sims are so clever!
Selvadorada is one of The Sims 4’s most inspiring worlds. But, it’s not just the rainforest that makes it unique. It’s also the local flavor. When Sims are vacationing here, they’ll love meeting Selvadoradians and getting to know the culture (and secrets of the jungle).
Once they’ve made some new friends, it’s time to bust a move! Local flavor also means different dance steps. If, by the end of the night, your Sims aren’t having a ball at the cantina, what can we say? It’s probably time for a good, old-fashioned bubble bath.
When Sims are out on their tropical excursion, they’ll likely stumble upon a lush lagoon. How refreshing! Your Sims will make some awesome memories here, and it’s a great way to appreciate the tropical terrain. So, go ahead, take a dip to relieve your Sims of some pesky insect attacks.
Speaking of which, this may not sound like something to help Sims relax but think of this as some much-needed preparation. When loading up on supplies at the cantina, it is necessary – nay, imperative – that your Sims buy as much insect repellent as they can carry. Without it, they’ll be anything but blissed out. Those tropical bugs are no joke, people!
