Bonehilda

Do any of you guys remember Bonehilda from The Sims 3? I think TS1 had it too under a different name. It was the skeleton that performed all of the tasks that a maid does but without a charge. If it's not in TS4, I hope they bring it back before TS4 is done.

    It was introduced in Jungle Adventure actually and you can summon a skeleton helper of sorts to do all the chores.

    Yeah but love Bonehilda herself since Sims 1 and again in Sims 3. She's the best Nanny and maid ever.

    And a lot of fun with her in TS3 - when she made puddles by grabbing a drink, then mopping it up, and repeat. Or when she eventually found a thing for swimming in the pool.

    I've never played with a skeleton in Jungle Adventures but as it can be added to the household wonder if I could get it to paddle etc. or enjoy life in Island Living. I don't think I've explored the possibilities enough.

    I think it's funny when the real maids react to it too! I've never seen videos of that on TS4.

    Loved Bonehilda! She was actually more reliable than a normal maid, and entertaining - like hitting up the bar one too many times, but hey, it's a part of her unapologetic charm. She'd sometimes help out with babies if they were crying too. My favorite thing about her was the coffin she came with doubled as a 'headquarters', so I didn't have to assign her to anything like a butler. Heck yeah, I'd like to see her make a comeback.

    My mom thought Bonehilda was funny back when she would watch me playing The Sims 1.

    Skeletons came with Jungle Adventure. It's not THE Bonehilda but they help around the house too.

    How do you get a Skeleton to help around the house?
    Is it a playable Sim converted to a Skeleton or is it a NPC?
    Thanks for your answers, I really don't know :/

    The JA skeletons don't have the same charm as Bonehilda. I hope they release her for Sims 4 in a stuff pack one day. I know a lot of people will be upset about it being a "My First Magic Stuff" pack, but I'd rather have that than no Bonehilda at all.

    Maybe if they ever make zombies for Sims 4 they could include her in whatever pack those come with? It would make sense there too.

    Which is why I think she'd be a perfect 'free anniversary pack' content - without any drama what pack to include her in.

    We've already got what we are getting in free anniversary gifts.

    There will be more anniversaries. IIRC Sims 4 has another 5 years, or so I've heard, so that's 5 more years of a yearly gift. And this year they did a free gift for both the Sims 4's anniversary, and for the anniversary of the Sims franchise as a whole. So that's 10 more opportunities for free content.

    They could also just do a new Halloween event that gives her to us, or just a Halloween free content thing.

    I wouldn't mind paying for her, though.
