Sims 4 has some of the most realistic fire and smoke effects seen in the series, offering the most authentic fire-building experiences yet. This guide will provide step-by-step instructions on how to build a fire in Sims 4, as well as tips on how to make it bigger and keep it burning.
Start by finding a suitable spot for your campfire. Make sure that you’re choosing an area that doesn’t have too much vegetation, as this could cause your fire to spread too quickly and for your Sims to get burned.
Once you have located an open field or other suitable area for a campfire, select “Build” from the main menu. You will now be able to choose from various objects in The Sims 4 library including a “basic campfire” item. Click on this item and drag it onto the area where you want your campfire to be built.
Before you can start a fire in The Sims 4, there are several items that you will need to ensure success.
- Something to ignite the fire, such as a lighter or matches.
- If you want your Sim to start the fire using their science skill, then you will need a Bunsen burner from the science lab.
- You’ll also need some kind of fuel source like wood or coal, which can be found around most houses and outside on lots.
- Finally, make sure your Sim has at least one free hand so they can interact with the material used as fuel and click ‘start Fire‘ on the action menu.
With all of these items in place, your Sim will be well on their way to starting a roaring fire!
Preparing the Fireplace
Before you can light a fire in The Sims 4, you must prepare the fireplace. First, choose the type of fireplace you will use. There are several styles available including Freemode, Traditional, and Fire Pit. Each of these fireplaces has their own unique features and must be arranged accordingly before they can be used.
Once you have chosen the style of fireplace desired and placed it in the home, it’s time to start preparing it for use. All fireplaces require fuel which typically comes in two varieties – Macarons or Logs. You will also need a flame source such as a Flame Tonic spray bottle or a lighter depending on which type of fuel is being used. Some additional items may also be necessary such as kindling or combustibles to get the flames started if using Logs as fuel. Lastly, make sure there is an adequate supply of extinguishers around in case any fires become unmanageable.
How to start a fire in sims 4
Lighting a fire in Sims 4 is relatively simple and is a great addition to any home. All you need to create the perfect cozy atmosphere is the right tools, lighting, and fuel. Starting a fire will require the use of a Sim’s lighter, which can be purchased in Buy Mode or found in an interactive stove or fireplace.
After you have obtained the lighter, it’s time to layer your fuel:
- Logs – These logs can be placed directly into your fireplace or near enough for your Sim to light them up.
- Other varieties of fuel available such as wooden camping stoves, paper bundles, candles and even kindling for those looking for a more combustible experience.
Once you have chosen your desired fuel source, add some decoration around it such as plants to make your flame look its best!
Once you’ve got all the pieces in place, it’s time to light it up! Direct your Sim over to the lighter and click on “Ignite Fireplace” or “Light Logs,” depending on what type of fuel they are using (lighter needed). With this command selected, an animation will occur as your Sim lights up first one log then another until finally they stand back admiring their handiwork and alluring flames of orange and yellow cast their warm radiance across the room.
Extinguishing the Fire
Whenever a fire breaks out in your Sim’s home, you will need to put it out as quickly as possible. Fortunately, Sims 4 provides several ways to extinguish flames.
- Call for a firefighter. Whether you have an active fire or smoke in the room, the firefighters can come to the rescue and deal with it within a few moments.
- Use a Fire Extinguisher. Place this item near the base of the flames; you should be able to hear it sounding any time your Sim is near a burning object. Pulling the extinguisher’s trigger will cause it to release foam, smothering away at any nearby fires.
- Fight fires by hand with a bucket of water or garden hose; however, this can be dangerous and risky! Instruct your Sims not to walk into or stand too close to any burning items or flames while they are putting them out; you want their Sim-selves safe! Additionally, keep in mind that some objects take longer than others to put out— just make sure everyone stays safe!
Once you’ve gathered the necessary materials and prepped your area, it’s time to start your fire. Start by building a tiny pyramid of kindling in the center of the fire pit. Lay a few more pieces of kindling over the top. Take some larger pieces of fuel like logs or branches and place them around the kindling, forming an open circle around it. Take care not to crowd the space so that air can flow freely around your little pyre.
Once you have everything set up, light the tinder with whatever source of fire you choose—be it a lighter, matches or a flint stone—and keep adding larger pieces of wood until your fire is burning nicely and steadily.
With these steps in mind, be sure to:
- Practice cautious fire handling.
- Watch out for sparks or embers that may have escaped into other areas.
- Manage flames responsibly in all situations.
If tended properly, you can use these tips to create a safe and successful campfire every time!
