How To Get a Unicorn in The Sims 4

How To Get a Unicorn in The Sims 4

The recently launched Sims 4 Horse Ranch expansion pack offers an immersive experience, catering primarily to horse aficionados. Releasing on platforms like PC (on both Steam and Origin), Mac, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, and PS5, it’s set to be a game-changer.

Despite its comprehensive gameplay focusing on horse customization, the expansion does not introduce actual unicorns as many had anticipated. Instead, it offers an innovative feature where players can transform their standard horses into unicorn-like creatures using cosmetic items.

Unicorns, the magnificent horned creatures reminiscent of horses, have always fascinated many. In the realm of The Sims 4, these majestic creatures have been a topic of intrigue and debate. Interestingly, there’s even a discourse about rhinoceroses possibly being considered as unicorns within the game. However, while The Sims 4 doesn’t feature true-to-myth unicorns, it provides the tools to craft a vision closely resembling one.

To kickstart your journey towards crafting a unicorn, it’s essential to first own The Sims 4 Horse Ranch expansion. Once you have it, navigate to the Create-A-Sim (CAS) menu. Here, you’ll find the “Add A Sim” option.

After clicking on it, spot the pawprint icon and subsequently, the horse icon. This is your gateway to choosing from a diverse range of horse species and breeds available in the game. From there, you can dive into personalizing your horse’s coat color, pattern, body type, hoof color, and hair.

The magic happens when you access the head-editing menu by selecting your horse’s head within CAS. This opens up a world of customization. From altering the shape of the muzzle, ears, and eyes to the pivotal step of adding the unicorn horn, this is where your horse begins its transformation.

There’s currently only one horn design available, but it doesn’t lack in variety when it comes to color. Once you’ve decided on the horn’s hue, adding it to your horse transforms its aura. Not only will its voice take on a more ethereal tone, but it will also shimmer with sparkles both in CAS and during gameplay.

Detailed Customization for the Perfect Unicorn 

The Sims 4 offers an impressive degree of detail to ensure your unicorn stands out. Whether you opt for a Stallion or Mare, the Andalusian breed is often preferred by players aiming for that classic unicorn aesthetic. Adjusting facial features can further elevate your unicorn’s looks. For example, choosing the ‘Muzzle’ option can remove any coloring, while selecting the ‘Horn’ category lets you decide on your unicorn’s horn style.

The game also allows you to play with coat colors, ranging from the timeless white to more vibrant hues like pastel rainbow. Want to add a whimsical touch? Consider customizing your unicorn’s mane, tail, or even adding feathers to its feet. The in-game accessories, such as bridles and saddles, can be matched to your unicorn’s coat.

Pastel pink and white are popular choices. And if you’re particular about your unicorn’s temperament, selecting traits like Free Spirit, Independent, and Intelligent could align it with traditional unicorn lore.

Your unicorn experience doesn’t end with adult horses. Foals too can be endowed with the enchanting unicorn horn. While baby horses birthed from your unicorn-like creatures may initially lack the distinctive horn, a quick visit to the full CAS mode lets you equip them with it. Once adorned with the smaller horn available in the ‘Horns’ tab, these foals transform into mini unicorns, complete with the sparkle effect and unicorn-esque vocal sounds
