First and foremost you will absolutely 100% need a copy of the Nightlife expansion pack for the Sims 2 in order to even encounter vampires in the game.
When I first got Nightlife I had no idea that vampires would be thrown
into game play. I was glad it was added though because it made for one
hell of a creepy, yet awesome playable addition to my game.
I first encountered a Vampire by the name of Valmin or something odd like that.
At any rate I spotted him the moment he stepped onto the lot. He came
walking into a downtown club that my Sim was hanging out at.
My Sim was out with the intention of scoring in a photo-booth with
some horny male Sim. She however seemed to displease everyone she came
across. Just as I was about to direct her to take a cab home, a sexy
sultry pale man walked quickly by her. Oddly he had his arm raised to
his moth, as if he were wiping away something on his lips, yet his arm
At first I assumed it was nothing more than another glitch on Maxis'
part. However when I clicked on him I was able to see his pale face, and
clearly he had fangs!
I wanted to befriend this creature of the night immediately.
I steered my sexy female Sim up to him and tried making conversation.
He shot her down quickly, and at one point even hissed at her. It was
obvious befriending Vamps would be difficult.
No matter though because she now had him stored in her friends bank,
even though the relationship was in the red zone. She continued to
follow him around and eventually was able to get him to like her enough
as to where he'd actually talk to her without negative points being
The next day I simply made my female Sim call him on the phone to
invite him over. I figured that way she could schmooze some more.
Stupid me. I went and invited him over during the day time. As soon as
he stepped onto my Sims lot, he fled. I watched as his coat jacket
began to smoke. It turns out vampires in the game cannot be out in the
I waited till it was dark, and directed her to invite him over again.
He showed up, and I was able to establish a relationship with him.
Suddenly out of nowhere I witnessed him bite my female Sim on the neck.
She then turned into a vampire, and the two lived happily ever after.
Taking care of a Vampire Sim though is harder than one would think.
After being bit, I had to buy a coffin bed. Without one to sleep in
during the day my vampire Sim would burn up and die in sunlight, so for
everyone looking to turn into a vampire, keep that in mind. Your Sim
cannot o out in the light. This means keeping any day job would be
Anyhow, now that you know how to become a vampire, go turn on your
game and enjoy the new game play, because having vampires as Sims is
pretty cool. If you have Sim 2 Pets, you can also add in werewolves. If
you have the latest Apartment Life pack, you can add a witch. Create a
wicked evil castle of monsters.
