Hidden Secret #2: Drinking Beetle Juice
With The Sims 4: Eco Lifestyle expansion pack, your Sims can indulge in the strange practice of drinking beetle juice. Consuming three of these unconventional drinks consecutively would let Sims transform temporarily into a ghostly state! After a few hours, they would then return to their original form.
Hidden Secret #3: Firemen Uniform
For Sims who have frequent experiences with household fires, the firemen uniform found in the Create-a-Sim (CAS) menu is a lifesaver. Yup! Sims who wear it would become fireproof and gain the confident moodlet each time there is a fire. Now, they would no longer shout those frantic “Haspaaa!” phrases.

Hidden Secret #4: Clumsy Sims
Sims who have the “clumsy” trait should steer clear of dish duty! These bumbling characters have a habit of breaking plates whenever they attempt to clean any plates! Yep. They would almost usually break plates whenever they wash them on the sink.
Hidden Secret #5: Dancing Cowplants
Cowplants are not just life-draining creatures but they also have a hidden talent for dancing! Place a stereo near a cowplant, turn up the music, and enjoy the fun as the cowplant breaks into a spontaneous and entertaining dance performance. For added fun, let your Sims dance with it!
Hidden Secret #6: Angry Spaghetti!
There’s a “mad” twist to cooking with Sims who have a high cooking skill and an angry moodlet. Let them prepare spaghetti, and see as they produce something called the “Angry Flaming Spaghetti” dish. Calling others to this meal will make these other Sims angry too, which will lead to a hilarious culinary incident.
Hidden Secret #7: Pregnant Sims are Immortal
Pregnant Sims enjoy a special perk. They have temporary immortality! When their hunger reaches zero, nope they won’t die! They would automatically pull out an emergency protein bar to ensure they don’t perish from their neglect, which is a totally cool thing. That would also explain why they seem to be confident around the Grim Reaper, LOL!

Hidden Secret #9: The Ghost Horse
Between the Gooseman household and an empty 50×50 lot in Chestnut Ridge, there’s a shed with a horse’s grave and well, you guessed it right….a ghost horse.
