Tuesday, August 5, 2014 - 21:25

Go back to Creator's Camp overview!

Don't blatantly copy the info onto your site without credit, thanks.

In The Sims 4 it's all very convenient for your Sim to get new items. Need books? Just click your bookcase and buy new books! The menu is filtered by several categories:

  • Show all
  • Children's
  • Fantasy
  • Non-Fiction
  • Poetry
  • Romance
  • Sci-Fi
  • Mystery
  • Skill
  • Emotional

So in The Sims 4 base game there are a whole lot of new skills we didn't have in previous games! The ones we already had in The Sims 3 are:

  • Charisma
  • Cooking
  • Fishing
  • Fitness (Athletic)
  • Gardening
  • Guitar
  • Handiness
  • Logic
  • Painting
  • Writing

The new base game skills are:

  • Comedy
  • Gourmet Cooking
  • Mischief
  • Mixology (was added in TS3 Late Night)
  • Piano (was added in TS3 Late Night)
  • Programming
  • Rocket Science
  • Video Gaming
  • Violin (was added with TS3 store content)
