Many players attribute the different methods of killing or eliminating Sims as one of the biggest reasons behind the success of the series.

There are a large number of methods in The Sims 4 in which sims can die either naturally or through unnatural means. Some of these methods are absolutely bizarre!

It must be noted that an unexpected death can prove to spoil the kind of plans a player might have in their mind and obstruct them from putting together the kind of narrative they want to. In The Sims, death can either be a temporary occurrence or a permanent thing. Apart from mods and cheats, there are several ways in which one can bring deceased Sims back to life. Many of these methods have been around since the base game was launched. At the moment, there are five different ways in which this can be done.

Penning Down a Book of Life

This is a time-consuming but rewarding method. Players will require a Sim to fulfill the ‘Bestselling Author aspiration’ and then, getting the option to jot down The Book of Life unlocked. After Sim finishes the task of writing the book, they will get the option to use it for a specific purpose. They can ‘Capture Epic Saga’ of a Sim with the help of this book. While this method ensures resurrection, you must remember that The Sims 4 is an unpredictable game and can surprise you at any juncture.

Making a Visit to the Wishing Well

The Wishing Well, which is a part of the Romantic Garden Stuff pack, holds the power to get a ghost inside the household. A wish can be made by the deceased and if it gets accepted, they will be resurrected and will be protected against everything apart from old age for as long as 24 hours. If the wish turns out to be very successful, the ghostly Sim will be provided with ambrosia or the necessary ingredients to prepare it.

Asking the Grim Reaper for Mercy

One of the most convenient methods by which you can resurrect a dead Sim is by getting another Sim to ask the Grim Reaper to give their life back. When the Grim Reaper makes an entrance, you could choose the option to plead with him. This particular interaction can have different variations based on the Sim’s temperament or mood. For example, a confident Sim would be able to put across an assertive demand to resurrect the dying Sim.

Feeding Ambrosia to a Ghost

Those who have played The Sims 3 for a long time would remember the presence of Ambrosia in it. It is a food item that enables dead people to come back to life. This method, however, is not as quick as some of the other resurrection methods in The Sims 4. To prepare Ambrosia, you will be required a Sim with Gourmet Cooking Skills and Level 10 Cooking. Three main ingredients that one will need to make it include an Angelfish, a Death Flower and a Potion of Youth.
