Collecting & Crafting

Nothing is more special than the pieces you hand-craft with love. With Crystal Creations, a Sim can create over 1,000 different permutations of bejeweled items, choosing to make a fashion statement, declaration of love or a sparkly gift for a friend.

To create these dazzling items, Sims can develop the Gemology Skill. This shiny new skill can be learned through practice as your Sim crafts at the new Gemology Table. Craft jewelry and cut gemstones in stunning new designs. As your Sim’s skill improves, so will the quality of their creations. At the Gemology Table, Sims can cut gemstones and make stunning designs with the Crystals they collect and fashion them into engagement rings and other jewelry, including assorted rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. 

From selecting your favorite Crystal variant to choosing which metals suit a Crystal best, like Silver, Gold or Rose Gold, your Sim will feel like a master crafter once surrounded by their colorful jewelry. You can also use any of the 22 metals found with The Sims 4 worlds including Baconite, Death Metal and Romantium. Send a message of love or friendship by selecting the perfect shape of a Gemstone, choose from 10 different cuts including a Heart, Plumbob or Gnome shape.

The Gemology Skill can be boosted when a Sim reads the Gemology Skill book and when a Sim continues to craft Crystal Creations at the Gemology Table. A Sim can sell, collect and gift their crafted creations to other Sims.

Connect with Crystal Energy

Don’t you just love a little moonlight? We sure do! We’re excited to share that Crystal Creations utilizes the Base Game Lunar Cycle. This means that in Crystal Creations, Sims can search out Crystals on their computer or pluck them off a Crystal Tree, and once the Crystal is cut into a Gemstone, the jewelry and Gemstones can be charged with the Crystal determining the effect. 

The objects must be placed on the Crystal Charging Grid. Once charged, Sims can wear or display their pieces, experiencing the effects of the Crystal to positively or negatively impact relationships, emotions and in-game progress. Depending on the Crystal the effects of the charging may wane over time and your Sims will need to recharge to feel the full effect once again.

With the introduction of 3 new crystals, Amber, Jade and Moonstone, there are currently 27 total crystals across all packs for Sims to discover. Sims can find Crystals anywhere! Locate Common, Uncommon and Rare Crystals in dig spots and rocks on any world or lot, while Uncommon Crystals can also be purchased from the computer or at the Gemology Table and Rare Crystals can only be found in different worlds or grown on a Crystal Tree. 

Find all different varieties of Crystals around The Sims 4 worlds including:

  • The Sims 4 Base Game Crystals: (Common) Emerald, Citrine, Quartz, Alabaster, Rose Quartz, Peach Quartz, Ruby, Orange Topaz, Sapphire, Turquoise, (Uncommon) Simanite, Shinolite, Amethyst, Hematite, Diamond, Fire Opal, (Rare) Jonquilyst, Plumbite, Rainborz, Jet 
  • The Sims 4 Get To Work Expansion Pack: (Common) Nitelite, Crandestine
  • The Sims 4 Jungle Adventure Game Pack: (Uncommon) Amazonite, (Rare) Alexandrite
  • The Sims 4 Crystal Creations Stuff Pack: (Common) Jade, (Uncommon) Moonstone, (Rare) Amber

Dark and Dreamy

The ultimate crystal adventure isn’t complete without the right dash of mystery and intrigue. When it’s time to collect your colorful Crystals and slip into colorful crystal slippers, bejeweled leather boots and artisan clothing, including button down vests and shirts and floral tops with puffed sleeves. To add even more sparkle, check out the new hairs with fierce metallic hoops or delicate jeweled pins. 

After a long day of cutting, collecting, crafting and selling Crystals and jewelry, relax in a cozy humble abode equipped with soft velvety sofas, stare into mirrors embedded with Crystals and spend many starry nights at your Gemology Table learning the tricks of the trade. 

The Sims 4 collaborated with Simmer Arethabee to develop a dreamy set of jewelry available in Create-A-Sim, featuring a necklace, a ring and earrings.  Her designs are delicate and sophisticated and a perfect addition to this sparkling pack. We love working with our community of creators and cannot wait to see what you make with these dazzling new designs.

Our Thoughts About The Sims 4 Crystal Creations

sims 4 crystal creations trailer screen 89

The Sims 4 Crystal Creations is a great example of how The Sims Team is using the revival of stuff packs to bring players new gameplay concepts that we haven’t seen before in the series. The Sims 4 Crystal Creations is something unique that we think players will really enjoy because it’s something fresh that offers us the ability to use old items in new ways.

Collectors will have another reason to hunt down crystals and metals now that these things can be made into jewellery. And the new collectibles and skill coming with this pack gives completionist players more to discover and accomplish with their Sims.

Overall, we really love the direction of these revived stuff packs. Home Chef Hustle was a strong start, bringing back a few old favourite concepts and combining them with completely new concepts when it comes to cooking. It looks like The Sims 4 Crystal Creations is operating along the same wavelength; taking something familiar to players like the crystal and metal collections and turning them into something totally new we haven’t seen before. If these two stuff packs are the new standard, the future of stuff packs looks bright.
