Crafting is for the items that you can’t purchase, and is a new feature in The Sims Social. To ‘craft’ something, you need to collect the required items first. Use the Craft section to see the rewards for crafting each item, and then be on the lookout for the required items. Potions are mysterious and some even have negative results – these can only be crafted. Click on the Craft menu and hover over any items you do not have – the game will tell you how to acquire them.
Below are some of the items that can be crafted, and instructions on how to do it:
5 Energy Potion
This gives you a plus-5 energy top up. To craft it, you need 8 Goodwill (from being nice to friends), 7 Love (from romantic actions) and 3 Buzz (from fun activities).
Bad Mood Potion
Why you would want this is debatable, but this potion puts your Sim in a foul mood. Use 2 Fury, 2 Wrench (from repairing items) and 1 Leftover (from fulfilling Hunger needs) to be able to craft it.
To get 150 Simoleons and 3 Energy. Craft it with 4 Cloth, 4 Rubber Gloves and 4 Dusters. These items are obtained by cleaning.
This boosts your Fun Need. It requires 1 Relaxation, 1 Entertainment, and 1 Buzz, all collected from having Fun!
Good Night’s Sleep
This reduces your Sim’s Sleep Needs. You can craft it with 1 Dream, 1 Nightcap and 1 Soft Pillow, all from previous meeting your Sim’s sleep needs.
This reduces your Sim’s Hunger Need. Use 1 Nutty Snack Bar, 1 Leftovers, and 1 Delicious Morsel to craft it.
Obviously, this potion Inspires your Sim, and as such is a very valuable one. To make it, you need 5 Muse (from art/creative actions), 5 Love and 8 Goodwill.
This increases your Sim’s hygiene level. To get it, collect 1 Soapsud, 1 Rubber Duckie and 1 Sponge. For these, you just need to increase your Sim’s hygiene to collect.
This gives you 20 Simoleons and 50 XP. It is crafted using 2 Wood, 2 Nails and 2 Hammer, produced from repairing items previously.
You will now find some of the ingredients most commonly required for crafting, and tips on collecting them easily.
How to get Fury:
To get Fury, you basically just need to insult your friends. As Bella is a NPC, you can insult her to your heart’s content without any worries. Obviously as you insult people, their opinion of you drops, but you can get it to rise again relatively easily. You could also arrange to have agreements with your friends to use them to get Fury points – that way they won’t mind you insulting them! The worse your relationship with someone, the funnier, and more devastating, the actions you can perform at them.
Spend points on the Slob and Ogre traits to get new options for ruining your friendships in pursuit of Fury!
How to get Goodwill:
Goodwill will get you friends, so is what you will want to do after gaining Fury by insulting everyone! Choose the positive actions and conversation options to get Goodwill. Nicer options appear the better the relationship you have with another Sim.
How to get Love:
Surprisingly, love doesn’t have to come from a romantic relationship. Instead, you get Love merely by being with another Sim and doing an activity with them, like dancing to music, for example.
How to get Bling:
Bling is collected from posts on the Wall. After building something, you can post a message which will allow your friends to get Bling when they read it.
How to get Buzz:
Buzz is gained from doing fun activities. Let your Sim enjoy themselves to give them a Buzz!
How to get Muse:
Muse is obtained from performing creative art and music actions.
Crafting uses items that you may need to build furniture, so always check first before employing one of your crafts.
