September 20 - Friday Highlight is here! Check it out!
September 17 - We just released a small patch for The Sims 4 on PC/Mac - click here for more details.

Realm of magic. Thank you for a great pack.

Realm of magic is so far my favorite game pack. For the supernatural packs they really go all out. In my opinion this is just what this game needed to spice things up. And just in time for fall. I just wanted to cheer on the creators to put in this much effort into the next pack because this one is a step above some in my opinion. The last stuff pack was impressive with its new photography career too - for a stuff pack they did a lot. I have to say island living wasnt one of my favorites. It wasn't bad but i felt it lacked gameplay and focused more on the scenery/background. But with realm of magic and the latest stuff pack I know what the creators are capable of. And I just wanted to shout out a great job on this one.
I really liked vampires too but this one is even better. Im really hoping the next gamepack incorporates as much fun as this one did. I would be suprised if people don't love this pack.

    I agree, though I don't care for witches much I feel like it was pretty good. just feel like it's too easy to progress up the ranks for me. I'd prefer it if it took a while to get to virtouso instead of being able to do it in under an hour without any cheats.

    idk, I managed to get to virtuso in the first hour (or two maybe. I'm pretty sure it was only an hour though.) of playing. then again I did spend most of the time just constantly dueling and casting random spells + I have the trait that makes it so you don't need sleep as much.

    Grinding. In most cases it's just doing nothing but powering through and ignoring everything else.

    Click on the ground outside and then under spells.

    It's my top favorite game pack. The fact that my sims can do magic anywhere and not just the magic realm is a plus. I love Glimmerbrook because of its secluded vibe. It was amusing when the game chooses some premades to be spellcasters. Most of the time, those choices are unexpected. The situational outfits still need to be toned down, though. I still wonder why the witchy toddler animation from Sims 3 Supernatural hadn't made a comeback. That aside, the familiars are cool.

    I came in with meagre expectations and still was sorely disappointed.

    With two sims, one with the clumsy trait, I was still able to max out everything in under 2 hours. I wasn’t even grinding either. During this I explored both towns and visited back home regularly to work/earn simoleons and work on my garden. I don’t use cheats for needs or money.

    Spellcaster lifestate makes everything too easy and baby mode. I can just spawn food and instantly shower now. If I don’t want to do that, it only takes a single apple to create a potion that refills my needs completely. You learn this potion when you become a Spellcaster; so at the first rank. I have no need to learn handiness as I can instantly repair things (another thing I learnt at first rank).

    It also wasn’t hard or grating to become a Spellcaster in the first place. Collect 7 motes that are all conveniently next to each other and BAM you can cast magic. Nothing brought me back to the shop quarters as I could find familiars in bookshelves for some reason, or challenge townies for artefacts.

    A lot of the animations/spells/potions are just recycled content and that irritates me a great deal as I feel the developers have run out of ideas.

    Overall? I greatly regret buying this pack for many reasons and wish I had waited to see reviews or the mods needed to run it properly.

    The only redeeming feature is the music and some of the clothing items. That’s legitimately it.

    I’m glad you enjoyed it, but I can’t stress it enough that it is not surprising people hate it.

    It's definitely a great pack, one of the better ones. It shows that they can when they want to. :smile:

    I’m enjoying it as well! It’s adding an element of gameplay and storytelling that I’m finding amusing! I’m still rank two lol! I’m not trying to Zerg thru it. I switch between households often. The witch I made was added to an existing family as a long lost aunt. She’s now reunited with her family and just spent winterfest with them. Was a great party with all the grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. Tho I felt bad for my sim teen who broke out with acne (I use slice of life and meaningful stories mod). I’m finding the pack very entertaining. So agreed OP! Kudos to the dev team 😊

    I was interested in this pack. However, after many reviews by many well known players (not just game changers) they have all said how really, really easy it is to level up (unlike Vampires) how little the things to level up make any impact, such as you could just do this or that with what is already in game etc. I don't know, I love magic in The Sims series, and was expecting a little more challenge and objects and assets that weren't just recycled. And I really don't like gameplay (with powers etc.) to be so darn easy as it was shown to fans in many different video reviews. Replay might not be worth it if it's not as challenging as The Sims Medieval magic or TS2, TS3 magic. And I guess I know it's not going to be as challenging as Makin' Magic. The easy peasy was the reason I decided against it, especially with assets recycled already in game, and that's very sad to me.

    I'm not finding it too easy at all. I am jumping between 2 different spellcasting families but it is taking me a long time to level up. My spellcasting sisters both just reached acolyte. My single spellasting male is really struggling. Part of that is because I don't quite have it all figured out. He kept losing magic duels. When I switched from the leafbat familiar to the owl he began to win. I don't know if that is the real reason he started winning or if it was a coincidence. He has a lot to learn and so do I.
