Ravasheen Into the Void Module Features
Typically, Stuff Packs in The Sims 4 focus on Create-a-Sim or Build-Buy stuff, with a gameplay bonus or two hidden in the mix. In Kids Room Stuff, the standout feature is Voidcritters. Compared to Pokemon by many Simmers, Voidcritters are sets of collectible cards and creatures that can be trained, battled, and upgraded.
Unfortunately, Voidcritters have two main problems. First, children are the only ones who can use the cards. Of course, anyone can collect them, but children are the only Sims who can use the Battle Station. Second, the battle station is, well, too big. You can’t take it anywhere because it won’t go in a Sim’s inventory and it takes up quite a bit of space in a room.
Fortunately, Ravasheen’s Into the Void: Voidcritter Gaming Tablet mod fixes all of these issues and adds many cool features that honestly should have been in the Kids Room Stuff pack in the first place.
9 Pack Compatibility for Into The Void
Into the Void uses Kid’s Room Stuff’s Void Creatures, of course. But it also includes Simmies, introduced to the game with The Sims 4: Snowy Escape. Although you cannot collect Simmie capsules using the tablet, you can purchase Simmie-related products.
To actually use the mod, however, you only need Kids Room Stuff.. A bunch of its features are even compatible with the base game. Interactions involving Voidcritter cards – collecting, battling or training Voidcritters, etc. – require Kids Room Stuff, but purchases and other features are fully compatible with the base game.
8 The Void Creature Tablet
The tablet is your Sim’s portal to the world of Voidcritters, for everyone from kids to elders. Little Dica and Ravasheen have created a revamped version of the toddler tablet, this time in ten Voidcritter-inspired colors and with an illuminated logo.
You absolutely need the tablet to use these new Voidcritters features, but the good news is that you can use it wherever your Sim is. It works both in-world and from your Sim’s inventory, so you can really use it anywhere. Shift-clicking the tablet also unlocks a number of cheat options, from “Find 10 virtual void creatures” to “Acquire all monsters.”
7 You can now buy Voidcritter cards online
With the Voidcritter gaming tablet, Sims can purchase Voidcritter cards, merchandise, or furniture; anything related to Voidcritter – or Simmie – can be purchased here. You can also purchase three types of Voidcritter cards: regular cards, boosters, or limited edition foil cards, but there will be a markup for purchases this way.
Foil cards will sell for a 4x markup, regular cards for 2x, and furniture for a 1.5x markup. For Sims who can afford it, the tablet is a very convenient way to find all of the Voidcritter furniture in one place.
6 Fight Void Creatures
Battling Voidcritters on the tablet works for kids through older Sims and uses fun animation from the Voidcritter TV channel. And while all Sims will gain fun from playing, the tablet will also strengthen age-specific skills: video game skills for teens and seniors and motor skills for kids. Mood, emotions, and Voidcritter level will determine a Sim’s playtime and even success in battle. Some cards and/or elements are also stronger against others, so experimentation will be required to find the right combinations. Premium cards do not increase your chances of winning, but they make a great collectible.
5 Find opponents
Currently, Sims can only battle other players online, and only Sims they don’t know. Cards are also randomly generated for all opponents (including card type, element, and power level), making the odds of winning different each time.
Winning or losing will cause Sims to gain or lose relationship points, and mean or brash Sims are more likely to get angry at a loss. For combat and training, Voidcritter cards do not need to be in a Sim’s inventory; however, they must be on the same lot as a Sim. Feel free to bring the tablet to the park, but be sure to bring your maps as well.
4 Void Creature Training
Void creatures can also be trained on the tablet, just like on the Battle Station. Each Voidcritter will start at level one and level up with each completed training session. Void creatures can reach a maximum of level ten, and as you might expect, the higher their level, the more likely a void creature is to win in battle.
Sims with higher motor or gaming skills can train their Void Creatures faster, but impatient Sims can click on the tablet during training to grab the “Max All Skills” cheat.
3 Creatures of the Vide Go
Voidcritters Go is an ode to the ever-popular Pokemon Go, allowing Sims to collect virtual Voidcritters around their neighborhood. These void creatures cannot be trained or fought, and Sims will not keep them after the game is over. Instead, Sims are tasked with finding ten virtual Void creatures in eight hours. Upon completing the task, your Sim will receive a randomly generated Voidcritter card or piece of furniture.
Sims find virtual void creatures by clicking anywhere on the floor, or even specific furniture. They won’t find a Voidcritter every time they search, and the more often they look in the same place, the less likely they are to find anything. Try traveling to another batch or taking a break!
The mechanics are similar to festival interactions (like finding eggs on Bunny Day), but since Ravasheen coded everything from scratch, the likelihood of finding Virtual Voidcritters is completely unique to this mod.
2 Voidcritters for all (ages)
Although the tablet can be used by Sims of (almost) all ages, it does not replace the rules or functions of the Battle Station. In this case, the basic rules apply: any child or more can collect Voidcritter cards, but only children can actually train and fight them.
Children can still use and own the tablet and the Battle Station together, and the same card groups can be used for both systems. However, because modders are amazing, Nekomimi’s Voidcritters mod for everyone unlocks the battle station for all eldest Sims children.
1 Future additions and updates
In her January 2022 Live Stream, Ravasheen has indicated that she wants to work on new add-on and updated content for Into the Void in the future. Potential updates include more collectibles, murals, and even functional toys, as well as general revamps of existing items to give them more Voidcritter samples. She also hopes to add Voidcritter club activities and the ability to battle household or party members on the tablet as well.
There are no set dates for these updates, and nothing is guaranteed just yet, but keep an eye out for Ravasheen website and social networks for more information.
