The Sims: Livin' Large, also called The Sims: Livin' It Up in Europe, is the first expansion pack for The Sims; it was released on August 27, 2000. It is also packed in The Sims Deluxe Edition along with The Sims.
- The "Concoctanation Station": With this chemistry set, Sims can make potions while gaining logic points. Different potions will have different effects, some good, some... not (i.e, the blue potion freshes out three of a Sim's needs, the purple potion turns them into a monster that breaks any objects it attempt to use).
- Antique Lamp: Allows Sims to take a risk to see if their wishes will be granted by the genie who lives inside.
- Crystal Ball: Answer its riddle to change a Sim's personality, or simply gaze into the future.
- Vibromatic Heart Bed: Sims can now get intimate under the covers and perhaps get a new family member.
- Telescope: Take a look at the night sky and possibly even meet aliens!
- Beaver Pelt Moosehead
- Servo: With this expensive item, send the robot inside to do chores. Fire all maids, butlers and gardeners!
- Sunny the Tragic Clown: This infamous NPC will come to life from a painting if Sims are in bad mood. He will try to cheer them up by doing tricks which always go wrong and interrupt Sims' sleep. To get rid of him, raise the Sims' mood or set the painting on fire.
- Grim Reaper: This NPC will come to fetch a Sim's soul if he or she dies. If he is feeling generous, you can make any living Sims plea with him and play paper-scissors-rock with him to bring back the dead Sim.
- Santa Claus: If a Sim prepares a plate of cookies near a Christmas tree and a fireplace, Santa Claus might visit and leave presents under the tree -- if all Sims in the household are asleep by midnight.
- Genie: If a Sim rubs a magic lamp a Genie will appear and grant them a wish, with good or bad consequences.
New Building ThemesEdit

Other New FeaturesEdit
|The Sims: Livin' Large Load Music|
One common issue about The Sims Livin' Large is the one that doesn't display the new objects, and shows the
classic The Sims start-up screen instead of The Sims Livin' Large one. To fix this, a patch download is needed, or installing a newer expansion such as House Party.
