How to Create a Haunted House Sims 4
Creating a haunted place is like creating any other type of lot. Any haunted house residential sims 4 lot can be turned into a haunted place.
All you need to do is change your lot into a haunted house residential type. To do that, go to the Build and Buy mode. Click the Venue Info Option and select the Haunted House Residential type from the dropdown menu.
Haunted House Lot Feature
Living in a haunted house Sims 4 does come with rewards, but it has its downsides – unless you love paranormal activity. Things get a little weird in here. When you select the lot type there will be several paranormal lot features. You will feel the haunted experience while living by yourself or visiting other Sims who live in a haunted place.
To live here, your Sims will have to maintain spiritual harmony and try not to disturb the ghosts, but that won’t be an easy task. Haunted houses have 9 lot benefits and perks that no other lots have. Let’s discover what these are…
1. Ghostly assistance – Guidry
This feature enables a Guidry ghost that will help you deal with paranormal activities. Guidry will introduce himself soon after you move into a haunted house, so expect to see him during the second night. He will keep you company frequently unless you ask him to leave you alone.
Specters can be like Casper the Friendly ghost or more like his not-so-friendly ghostly buddies. Haunted houses have specters, so expect their company every night. Friendly specters will be just buzzing around, happily minding their business. Unfriendly specters are furious, angry spirits with fire breath. To know what they are like in nature, look at whether they are the friendy blue or the angry red ones as their color will show how good or mean they are.

3. haunted house sims 4 – Haunted treasures
Haunted treasures refer to the items dropped by the specters, and they are usually beneficial or harmless. These items may differ. Most of the time you will get similar items to those you’d get if you advanced in the Freelance Paranormal Investigator Career.
4. Aspiring Investigators Welcome lot Benefit
A name says it all – you can use the whole haunted house experience to become a Paranormal Investigator. Guidry will help your Sims get the paranormal investigation license and hand you over your qualification, but you’ll first have to impress him. All you have to do is keep practicing a medium skill to earn that qualification. Your experiences will help you get better handling of paranormal situations, and also open the doors to earning money.
5. be brave
Did you know that every night spent in a haunted house can earn you reward points? The rule for the thumb is, that the longer you Sims stay in a haunted place and the braver they are, the more reward points they will earn. For instance, for one night in a haunted place you’ll be able to earn 125 points, and for two nights 250. Spending 5 nights in a haunted house Sims 4 will earn you a decent 625 reward points.
You will also be able to go a mile further by ”Enable Heroic Mode”. However, this option is not for the faint-hearted nor for those who keep disturbing the ghosts. For that to happen you will first need a hand statue that is activated by Guidry’s presence. The activation will create paranormal havoc, and increase the scare game a few notches. If you reach Level 3 of Medium Skill, you’ll be able to Invoke the Dead, which will create even more paranormal havoc in your haunted home.
6. haunted house sims 4 – Accursed objects
These are creepy objects, such as supernatural symbols, dolls, and creepy sprouts coming out of nowhere. Keep these in check. If you fail to do so, expect a bunch of creepy dolls like those from horror movies all-around your house. Yes, these can multiply. No one knows why.

7. Paranormal activity
If you have ever watched paranormal activity, this is exactly what this feature is. Expect restless nights, light mysteriously going on and off, and seeing other paranormal occurrences at night. If you live in a haunted house, sleeping at night is not an option and your Sims will lose sleep and be too scared to fall asleep even if you try to make them do it. Replace nighttime sleep with daytime naps to help them recharge batteries from being spooked.
8. It’s Alive
Every haunted house has a level of ghostly activity and needs to have a spiritual balance. In other words, ghosts in a haunted house have a level of tolerance and boundaries that should not be crossed. Your Sims’s aim is to keep things under control by not disturbing the ghosts.
Specters can be mean, but if you peacefully deal with things then everything will remain under control.
