Warning: This Sims blog post contains major spoilers for the Strangerville Sims 4 expansion pack.
If you have ever wanted to take your Sims into battle, my advice is, don’t. Just… don’t. The fight with the Mother Plant is a relatively simple boss battle. Even so, the process was… let’s politely call it “unwieldy.”
So here’s how it went. First, I assembled my Dream Team in the sub-basement of the Secret Lab.
Then, I SAVED MY GAME. Don’t let anyone save scum-shame you on this one. Save your game and restart if you fail. It’s the only way to keep your sanity, if you want my experienced opinion. I also found Carl’s guide very helpful here.
After saving, I marched my little Sims into the chamber and let loose. They arranged themselves around the Mother Plant and proceeded to ignore all of my instructions.
What followed was basically just a process of me clicking on the Mother Plant until “Throw vaccine” came off cooldown.
It took a few tries, but we finally defeated the Mother Plant. And there was much rejoicing!
Conquering the Mother Plant fulfilled Cordelia’s lifetime aspiration to solve the Strangerville mystery. I was happy that she was happy! And I was even happier that now I can go back to playing The Sims as usual. I chose the Soul Mate aspiration for her, and sent her back home.
