The Sims 4: All About The Tragic Clown

The Sims 4’s latest Game Update brings Tragic Clowns to the table! Unlike other NPCs (Non-Playable Characters), Tragic Clowns can both be played and found roaming around Neighborhoods.

To make your Sim a Tragic Clown which will give him/her Tragic characteristics, you need to dress up your Sim with the following (new!) CAS assets:

  • Tragic Hairstyle
  • Tragic Face Paint (3 Swatches)
  • Tragic Outfit (2 Swatches)
  • Tragic Shoes (2 Swatches)

Once you’re in the game, you’ll notice that your Sim now has some new interactions and moodlets!

Playing as a Tragic Clown

Tears of a Clown Moodlet

This is a Sad moodlet that will be entitled to your Sim once you dress him/her in Tragic clothing. As long as you’re wearing Tragic clothing, your Sim will have this +3 Sad moodlet – which, if you don’t have moodlets for different emotional states that are stronger, will put you in a Very Sad emotional state.

Juggle Interaction

Your Tragic Sim can Juggle! Click on your Sim, select Juggle and watch him/her fail. The results will always be, well, very tragic.

Other Moodlets

  • Such Tragedy! (+2 Sad Moodlet) – This Moodlet is given to Sims that are near to the Tragic Clown.
  • Misery Loves Company (+1 Happy Moodlet) – This Moodlet is given to Tragic Clowns who are found near other ‘Regular’ Sims.

Summoning the Tragic Clown

It’s very easy to summon a Tragic Clown. Simply buy the Tragic Clown painting in Build Mode for 200 Simoleons and select ‘View Tragic Clown’ until the Clown appears in your Room. Be cautious as the Clown will give your Sim the Such Tragedy! moodlet that will only disappear when you leave the Room where the Tragic Clown is.

  • Can we delete somehow the tragic clown? i would like too since I dont like it and its just making everyone in town sad and with stupid hair style

    • Just type in testingcheats on in command box then cas.fulleditmode and you can shift click and motify in cas and delete him or murder him with violence mod

  • These clowns are useless and annoying. There’s at least 3 of them that hang around my sim’s bakery and usually never buy. You ask them to leave, but soon they come back. This update should have come w/ a murder ability.
