  • Secret Forgotten Grotto lot in Oasis Springs

    To enter the hidden Forgotten Grotto lot in Oasis Springs, visit the Desert Bloom park lot in the Oasis Springs neighborhood. At the park, go far behind the lot to a public space with a bathroom stall. Then, proceed though the canyon to the left to find a boarded up cave entrance. Interact with the Mine Cave. Your Sim must have Level 10 Hardiness to break down the wooden barrier and explore inside. To complete the Adventure Cave, select the options in the following order: "Take The Wide Path", "Climb The Ladder", "Step Onto The Ledge". You will now be in Forgotten Grotto. This area contains the following collectibles: Fish, Frog, Lily, Mineral, Mushroom, Onion, Potato, and Sage.

  • Secret Sylvan Glades lot in Willow Creek

    To enter the hidden Sylvan Glades lot in Willow Creek, visit the Crick Cabana lot in the Willow Creek neighborhood, and explore the public space next to the house to find a large tree labeled "Sylvan Tree" with flowers growing out from the sides. Repeatedly click the tree and select "View" until a door appears. Enter the Tree Adventure mode, and select the options in the following order: "Follow The Sound", "Follow Downstream", "Enter The Mist". You will now be in Sylvan Glades. This area contains the following collectibles: Basil, Bluebell, Cherry Tree, Fish, Frog, Lily, Mineral, Mushroom, Pear Tree, Snapdragon, and Strawberry.

  • Getting the Voodoo Doll

    Use one of the following methods to obtain the rare Voodoo Doll item. Note: The Voodoo Doll requires Level 1 Mischief skill to use, and increasing the skill level for Mischief will give your Sim better results with the Voodoo Doll.

      Purchasing Online: You can unlock the Voodoo Doll for purchase at the Online Store (using a PC) for 950 simoleons by raising your Mischief skill to Level 3. To do that, walk around town and choose the "Mischief" bubble when interacting with other Sims. Once you are able to "Troll" internet forums using the computer, do so to speed up the process.

      Hunting for Treasure: Keep digging for treasure to eventually find the Voodoo Doll. To dig, travel to public spaces around the neighborhood. Search for piles of rock deposits, and use a shovel to interact. You will find randomly generated items and treasure maps to unlock collectible MySims statues.

      Rare Pond Fishing: Travel to the Desert Bloom lot in Oasis Springs, then move toward the public space behind the park where there is a rock canyon leading to a boarded up cave entrance. Along the rock walls are tiny ponds that you can fish in. Keep fishing in the ponds until you obtain the Voodoo Doll.

  • Growing Cow Plants

    To grow the special Cow Plant, you must first acquire a rare Cow Plant seed. They can be found by traveling to the Desert Bloom lot in Oasis Springs, then move toward the public space behind the park where there is a rock canyon leading to a boarded up cave entrance. Along the rock walls are tiny ponds that are the source of the shallow stream. Fish at this area to eventually get a Cow Plant seed. Once you have a Cow Plant seed, return to your Sim's home lot. Drag the seed from your inventory onto the ground where you want to plant it. Once it is planted, make sure to water it daily, and eventually it will grow to full size. If the mound of dirt at the base turns light brown, it means the soil is dry and needs watering. A fully grown Cow Plant is a dangerous creature. They generate rejuvenating milk after eating Sims that are fooled by their false cake tongues. Additionally, make sure to keep feeding your Cow Plant meat when it is fully grown or else it may die. The Cow Plant was first introduced in The Sims 2.
