The Sims 4: Complete Guide to Void Creatures
Collectibles are a generally underrated part of The Sims 4, and aside from nature aspirations (like the Curator, for example), collectibles-focused goals and achievements are largely hidden. Over time, however, collectibles expanded into larger game items.
The first pack to do so was Kids Room Stuff, adding Voidcritters, trading cards, and creatures often compared to Pokemon. Whether you’re a vanilla game player or an experienced mod user, if you haven’t delved into these collectibles yet, Voidcritters are worth exploring further.
5 What are void creatures?
Void Creatures are collectible creatures that have been added to the Kids Room Stuff Pack and, as the name of the pack suggests, they are primarily aimed at children. Child Sims can train or battle their Void Creatures in the new Battle Station, but anyone from child to elder can collect cards, which can be found in a variety of ways.
There are a total of 20 Voidcritters divided into five elemental types: fire, water, earth, air, and void. Elemental types are fun for collector Sims (filling a catalog with a particular element is very satisfying), but some elemental types are also stronger or weaker against others, complicating combat dynamics.
4 How to Find Void Creatures
Void creatures can be found in different ways, but the easiest method is to buy them from a computer. Boosters can be purchased individually for 25 simoleons, or in stacks of five for 125 simoleons, and anyone from child to elder can order them.
Kids can also trade cards with friends or search for abandoned toys in trash cans or logs (the ones that usually house frogs) for a chance to find free boosters. There is a cooldown period though, so Sims will have to kill time between searches. Sometimes Sims can also find limited edition foil cards; these look super cool, but they have no effect on Voidcritter’s gameplay.
3 What can you do with void creatures?
Trading cards with friends can be a fun activity for kid Sims and a great reason to meet more people. But the main gameplay element of Voidcritters is training them and battling them. Training Void Creatures increases their power level, which increases the chances of winning against others in battle. However, Voidcritter elements also play a role. Some elemental combinations produce different results:
Fire elements are strong against Earth
The elements of the earth are strong against the wind
Wind elements are strong against the Void
Void elements are strong against water
Water elements are strong against Fire
Training and battles take place on the Voidcritter battle station. Two child Sims can use the pack at any time in battle mode, but it can also be used alone in training mode.
Snowy Escape brings Voidcritters to Mount Komorebi with the new Festival of Youth. Here, child Sims can go on a hunt for void creatures to win special festival-exclusive prizes. To begin a hunt for void creatures, talk to Yamachan, the festival mascot. Next, walk around the festival plaza and click on the ground to search for void creatures (similar to how you would search for eggs on Bunny Day). Find ten void creatures to earn the prize, but be sure to talk to Yamachan again to claim it before the timer runs out!
2 Cross-pack integration for Voidcritters
Void Creatures can be incorporated into other game mechanics to expand play possibilities. Build Voidcritter collectible clubs with the Get Together Expansion Pack or use the Seasons Calendar feature to create holidays and traditions Voidcritter.
Fill a storefront, create a Voidcritter Sim-owned store, or have an artistic Sim specialize in painting or photographing their collections; no matter what interests you and your Sims, the options are endless. Collecting cards for themselves can also add a fun sense of challenge, but adding a cross-pack activity can spice up ordinary gameplay.
1 Voidcritter Mods You Must Try
A common complaint among gamers is that a lot of Voidcritters features are only available for kids. Sure, teen-older Sims can collect cards, but for what purpose if they can’t train or battle them? But modders continue to save the day by creating mods that augment the already existing Voidcritter functions and even expand on the idea of adding new gameplay.
LittleMissSam’s More holiday icons adds Voidcritter-appropriate icons to the already existing selection, and Icemunmun Assorted Personalized Holiday Traditions and Custom club activities make Voidcritter activities more compatible with Seasons and Get Together game features.
Another simple but useful mod is that of Nekomimi Void Criteria for Everyone which allows Sims of all ages to train and battle the creatures of the Void on the Kids Room Stuff battle station.
If you want more gameplay, then Ravasheen Into the Void: Voidcritter Gaming Tablet brings the functions of the Battle Station to a newly modeled tablet, making Voidcritters usable anywhere, anytime. It also adds new social features and a Voidcritters Go game, similar to the Voidcritter Hunt at the Festival of Youth. Along with this, BrazenLotus has created a magnificent Voidcritter Card and Comic Set which adds new boosters, Voidcritters comic and amazing decoration items perfect for a Voidcritters store.
