As a Sim you’ll also be able to create a variety of potions by using the Catalyst Chemistry Lab Station. This is where you can research formulas to make potions and discover new ones. Some of these potions include the ‘Ninja Vanish potion’ which teleports Sims home instantly, While the ‘ghost potion’ enables you to play on the other side, which I’m not going to reveal completely as I don’t want to spoil too much of the surprise for you. Sims who are adept in the logic skills can also mix potions into drinks. This creates a mysterious drink that looks like a glass of water, but causes any Sim who drinks it to undergo the same effects as the mixed potions. I tried experimenting several times which resulted in a few failed attempts with the lab blowing up in my face, leaving me walking around with a burnt look all over my body.
