However, there are many ways by which you can bring your Sims back to life, and you might want to use them to see your loved ones again.

Different Ways in Sims 4 That Bring Back Sims to Life
Your Sims can be revived through a series of steps, whether they die from natural or unnatural causes. However, you cannot bring back any of your Sims if the data of their urn gets deleted. If you are looking for a solution, we will guide you. Here are the many ways you can revive your Sims:
By Not Saving Your Progress
The most common and used method by simmers to resurrect their Sims is not saving their gameplay. While this is not the most profound solution for the resurrection of the Sims, it is the simplest and fastest way to bring back a Sim from the dead.
So, whenever a Sims dies, you have to exit without saving your gameplay. As a result, you will spawn at the last saved progress in your game.
Keep in mind, when it comes to starting at the last saved location, all your progress prior to the Sim’s death will also be lost. Also, you can’t bring back the previously dead Sims with this method.
Book of Life
Sims can pump life into the ghost Sims by using the Book of Life and can be the primary weapon against death in the Sims world. Albeit, this is the most time-consuming method for the resurrection of Sims.
So what exactly is the Book of Life, and how can it revive the Sims?
The Book of Life is an item that Sims get when they opt for Writer as their profession. The Sims who have mastered the writing skills can write this book. Additionally, players need to complete the “Bestselling Author” aspiration, and only then can they revive their Sims.
Once Sims have written the book, they can use it to “Capture a Sim’s life in an epic poem” of living Sims. If they die, the Writer can summon them back to life through the Book of Life.
But remember that one book can resurrect only one Sim in the Sims 4. Players can create multiple books as a precautionary tool for reviving others who have departed.
If you are a veteran of The Sims 3 game, you must remember a food named Ambrosia that allows ghost Sims to come back into life. The same item exists in Sims 4, though it requires a bit more work to acquire. Here’s what you need to make Ambrosia in the Sims 4:
Potion of Youth
Death Flower is a rare flower that is extremely useful for the Sims in the game. These can be obtained through a process called Grafting. Grafting is a combination by which two different plants craft the third one with contrasting traits and is a common technique while creating a garden in Sims 4.
Death Flower = Pomegranate + Orchid
Angelfish is an infamous item, which is valuable and hard to find or collect. The most common location to find Angelfish is the Willow River. However, players might have to wait for hours on end sometimes before getting their hands on one.
You can purchase the Potion of Youth from the Rewards Store with 1500 satisfaction points. Although, you need to complete aspiration work or whims to earn these satisfaction points.
Even if you have these ingredients at your disposal, you can’t simply craft Ambrosia out of it. Your Sim needs to achieve level 10 of Cooking and Gourment Cooking skills for creating Ambrosia. Once your Sim has the required skills and ingredients, select the Ambrosia from the Gourmet Cooking section of the Fridge to cook it.
Upon cooking Ambrosia successfully, let the ghost Sim eat the meal, and the Sim will come back to the living world.
Bringing Back Sims in Sims 4 Through a Wishing Well
Wishing Well is another method by which you can bring back your dead Sims to life, though most players are not aware that such a thing even exists in the game. To get this Wishing Well, you need to own the Romantic Garden Stuff pack along with your base Sims 4 game.
You can pick the Wishing Well for 7775 Simoleons in a build mode item. Sims can interact with this Wishing Well any time, including ghost Sims. There are six possible outcomes when you make a wish to the Wishing Well:
Overwhelmingly Positive: Immediate resurrection of ghost Sim with 24 hours of immunity.
Positive: The ghost Sim will get Ambrosia in its inventory to use and restore themselves.
Neutral: Ghost Sim will get all the ingredients to make an Ambrosia.
Negative: Reject your Sim’s wish without a refund.
Overwhelmingly Negative: It will make your ghost immune to resurrection for the next 4 hours.
Death: Grants instant death after the resurrection.
All these outcomes are the result of Wishing Well’s emotional state. So, always pay attention to the face of the Well before making a wish and try to make wishes when the Wishing Well is in a happy mood. Although the effects are spontaneous, you can still influence the Wishing Well by giving more money.
Casting Dedeathify to Bring Sims Back to Life
The Realm of Magic pack adds a new way to revive a Sim in-game. Dedeathify spell can be learned and used by the spellcasters who have mastered the Untamed School of Magic, and it can resurrect the ghost Sims into the living form.
Additionally, if Sims also know Necrocall, they can also summon spirits from the tomb that means you can revive any Sims in the game who are not part of your household. But this also means that few spells can end the life of Sims as well.
Pleading With the Grim Reaper to Bring Your Sim Back to Life
The other Sims in your household need to beg the Grim Reaper to spare the life of your dead Sim. When the Grim Reaper appears upon the death of a Sim, you need to select an option to ‘Plead’ on the Grim Reaper.
This interaction with the Grim Reaper will depend upon the mood of the Sims, who are pleading with him. In simple words, a confident Sim can ask the Grim Reaper to save the life of a dying Sim and will have a slightly higher success rate than even a healthy and happy Sim.
Finally, if your living Sim has a Death flower, they can trade that flower with Grim Reaper with the life of your dead Sim, which guarantees a way to bring back the life of a ghost Sim.
