The Cowplant

Easter Eggs

It is possible to grow a rare plant called the Cowplant, a cow-like plant that has appeared in the series ever since The Sims 2: University. In their Mature stage, Cowplants can eat Sims. They must be fed meat. A Cowplant that successfully eats a Sim can be milked for a special potion that increases the Sim’s life and makes them happy. A Sim that has survived being eaten by a Cowplant can milk it for a potion that will give them the emotions they had before being eaten.

The Cowplant may be a reference to Audrey II from the musical Little Shop of Horrors.

Glitch on scaling up items (increasing their size)


I noticed a glitch when increasing the size of an object, namely Mirrors. When the mirror is selected, and you hold both triggers in and press "UP" on the "D-Pad" only the Mirror Frame increases in size, leaving behind a mirrored piece of glass at the original size on the wall...

A loading screen explaining voodoo dolls says “"The power of voodoo. Who do? You do,” lyrics from David Bowie’s song Magic Dance, used in the movie Labyrinth.

Duck Puddle

In Build mode, if you let a large puddle of water form, you can use the Design Tool to change its shape. One of these shapes is a duck.

Reaper Puddles

Easter Eggs

If the Grim Reaper has something to drink or otherwise gets wet, he will leave behind black puddles.

Unlock the Sylvan Glades and the Forgotten Grotto


To unlock the Sylvan Glades, the hidden lot in Willow Creek, you should start from the Crick Cabana lot. Find the Sylvan Tree behind the house and interact with it. You’ll need to spend some time interacting with it (viewing it, watering it, chatting with it, etc.) and eventually a door in the tree will open.

Choose to explore and then make the following choices when prompted:

  • Follow the Sound
  • Follow Downstream
  • Enter the Mist

This will take you to the Sylvan Glades.

To unlock the Forgotten Grotto, the hidden lot in Oasis Springs, you should start from either the Desert Bloom Park or Affluista Mansion.

Note: you will need a Sim with a Handiness skill up to Level 10.

Find a blocked off cave entrance in the lot and break the barriers. This will allow you to explore it, and then make the following choices when prompted:

  • Take Wide Path
  • Climb Ladder
  • Step Onto the Ledge

This will take you to the Forgotten Grotto.
