Did you know that your sim can become immortal in the game? Yes, it’s possible. Your sims can now live a long life and never die in the game due to this potion of youth Sims 4. This exotic feature offered by the game would allow your sim to live a long life and avoid a meeting with the grim reaper. There are a lot of benefits that this potion offers the simmers, and we’ll get to know all about it right here.
How to Get Sims 4 Potion of Youth?
Potion of Youth is a drink that looks like a silvery liquid and acts as an anti aging potion, so that your sims can stop growing up. To get this drink, go to the rewards store in the sim’s aspiration panel and buy it for 1500 satisfaction points. You can gain these points by either fulfilling your sim’s whims or by completing an aspiration of theirs.
Benefits of this Potion
Let me clarify a doubt that every simmer faces when it comes to this age potion. This potion doesn’t reset your sim’s age to young adulthood, but it does take your sim back to the beginning of their current age. So if your sim drinks this potion when they are an adult, they would start their adult age at the beginning again. So your sim would continue being an adult for as long as you want.
You can make your sims drink this whenever you wish to stop them from aging from a particular life stage. There’s no limit to how many potions you can buy, so you can continue doing this for as long as you want.
One of the most common misunderstandings that players have is that their sim has become immortal and can never die, but that’s not the case. Your sim cannot die of old age, that’s for sure; however, this drink wouldn’t save them from dying in an accident or from any other mishap that might result in their death.
Facts about Potion of Youth
There are specific facts about this drink that you might not be aware of, so let’s take a look.
1. Immortality is a Fairly New Feature
In the Sims, the concept of a sim being immortal wasn’t there initially, but when Sims 2 was launched, this feature also came along with it. Earlier, only ghosts and NPCs were immortal, but in Sims 2, as vampires, zombies, and other such characters were launched, ways to stop the aging process were also introduced.
2. Changes in Name
The potion of youth as we know it now wasn’t called this from the beginning. In The Sims 2, this potion was called the Elixir of Life, and in The Sims 3, it was known as the Young Again Potion or the Age Freeze Potion. Over the years, the name of this drink changed, and now it’s famous as the Potion of Youth.
3. Each Potion Worked Differently in Sims Franchise
The idea behind this drink remains the same: it stops your sims from aging, but the way it works is different. For instance, in The Sims 2, this drink would only elongate your character’s life for three more days, and you could only use it 5 times. In the case of Sims 3, the young again potion took your sim’s age back to young adulthood, while the age freeze drink put a halt to the aging process. And now we know how the drink works in Sims 4.
4. Variation in Acquiring It
This drink is bought the same way, using the satisfaction points, but its price varies as per the version you are using. In Sims 2, this potion costs 30,580 aspiration points, whereas in Sims 3, the young again drink costs 70,000 points and the age freeze option costs 65,000 points. Sims 4 offers this drink at the most reasonable price.
5. Negative Effect of Elixir of Life
Those using Sims 2 must know that the Elixir of Life could age your sims in either direction if your aspiration bar isn’t in gold. So instead of reducing their age, it might increase it by 3 days. So if your sim is already old, the negative effect of this drink could lead to their death.
6. Other Methods to Be Immortal
Apart from this potion, your sim can become immortal by turning into a vampire, crafting Ambrosia, writing Book of Life, or growing a cow plant. If you have the Get to Work expansion, then sims can create the Age Away serum, and the Seasons expansion allows you to grow a scented flower, which increases the age by a day. A request from Strnagerville’s mother would also extend your sim’s life, and the Potion of Immortality created by a spellcaster would also work in the same way.
7. Creating Ambrosia from Potion of Youth
If you wish to bring a dead sim back to life, then you need Ambrosia, and to get it, here are the ingredients you need.
- Angelfish from Willow Creek river
- Death flower, which requires level 5 in gardening skill
- Lastly, Potion of Youth
Your sim should also have level 10 in cooking and gourmet cooking, which is quite challenging.
8. Transfer Potion to Another Sim
You can transfer the potion bought by your sim to another sim by keeping it in your inventory and then placing it in the world for any sim to use it. So keep this potion in the sim’s inventory whom you wish to drink this up because as that sim might be nearing their death, they’d drink all the left out potions.
The drink works instantly as soon as your sim drinks it. So if your sim is an adult and has 23 out of 24 days left to age up, then once they drink this potion, their age would reset to 0 out of 24 days.
If you think your drink didn’t work on your sim, then this happens sometimes when your sim is an elder because the game doesn’t show their current age; instead it shows the number of days they’ve lived. So even if they were reset to the beginning of adulthood, it wouldn’t be visible.
This was everything you needed to know about Sims 4 Potion of Youth to let your sims live longer and for you to spend more time with them. We understand that players get attached to their characters, and watching them die wouldn’t be easy for them; therefore, this feature in the game is welcomed by every simmer.
