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.
Your Tragic Sim can Juggle! Click on your Sim, select Juggle and watch him/her fail. The results will always be, well, very tragic.
Tragically Try to Cheer Up Interaction
As a Tragic Sim, your Sim can Tragically Try to Cheer Up other Sims that are sad!
- 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.
