Every spell has a unique backfire if Sims lack that magic something. Hair-raising consequences include toad plagues, snakes and lightning strikes.
Players can teleport to the all-new Magic Town location and earn rewards while performing mind-boggling tricks at a side show or dueling it out in a magic arena. Secret recipes can also be discovered while on a quest for unusual ingredients, or wild carnival rides can be built from the ground up.

Also included are 125 romantically searing items like the Cuddle Couch and Lover’s Swing.
— The Sims Livin’ Large allows players to put their Sims into the most outrageous situations and settings. Its content adds 125 extreme items to the game including a home chemistry lab, heart shaped bed, and crystal ball, as well as a cast of wild characters such as the Grim Reaper, Genie, and Tragic Clown.

Whether their Sims hoedown at a country barn dance, chow down at a tropical luau, or go underground at a rave, they are sure to rock the house. Additionally, there are over 100 outrageous items such as a dance cage and mechanical bull, as well as madcap characters like a cake dancer and personal caterer.
The Sims Mega Deluxe also includes The Sims(TM) Creator, an inventive customization tool for creating Sim characters.
