A vending machine is an object found in The Sims website, The Sims 2: Apartment Life, The Sims 3: University Life, The Sims Online, The Sims 4: Get to Work, The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs, The Sims 4: Island Living and The Sims 4: Snowy Escape.

The Sims[]

The Sims did not ship with a vending machine in the base game or any of its expansion packs, but vending machines by the name Disaster Fizz Automated Vendor and Pepsi Machine were available at the official website. Sims can purchase drinks from the machine, which will provide a small Energy boost while simultaneously decreasing Bladder. If the Sim has a low Neat score, they will burp loudly after drinking.

Occasionally, the vending machine would become "stuck" while a Sim was using it. Sims with a low Nice score will automatically kick the machine, and the player can manually direct Sims to kick a stuck machine. This will not damage the machine, and the machine will not fall on the Sim. After a few kicks, the machine will eventually dispense a drink, and the Sim will drink as usual.

As TheSims.com has been shut down, the Disaster Fizz Automated Vendor and Pepsi Machine can be downloaded here.

Disaster Fizz Automated Vendor[]

A close look at the ingredients reveals such items as “Tornado Essence” and “Molten Volcanic Rock Powder”, which are sure to kick your day into high gear. Already approved by the SimCity Bureau of Food and Drink these vendors can already be found wherever drinks are sold.

The Sims Online[]

The Sims Online came with two vending machines that could be purchased by players. One dispensed drinks, and functioned similarly to the Disaster Fizz Automated Vendor on The Sims website.

While these vending machines were not available for The Sims, the Koala Kola Vending Machine is available as custom content from OddSim.com.

The Sims 2: Apartment Life[]

The Sims 2: Apartment Life introduces two vending machines which can be placed on both residential and community lots. One vending machine sells only drinks while the other sells only snacks. Unlike other games, vending machines do not break and will always correctly dispense of their items.

The Sims 3: University Life[]

Vending machines were reintroduced in The Sims 3: University Life[1] and can be placed on both residential and community lots. Unlike previous games, all sales of sodas and candies are free. If Sims slam on the vending machine several times, there is a possibility that it will fall on top of them, killing them in a similar fashion to the murphy bed but unlike it however, the sims will not get the "Murphy Bed Clinophobia" moodlet and die instantly.

List of candies:

  • Ballard's Blueberry Bites
  • Rollie Loellie's Snack Cakes
  • Gooey Nut Log
  • Chunky Nugat Surprise
  • Sblonked
  • Carmel Crunch
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter Discs
  • Lily Lonka's Golden Voucher Bar

List of sodas:

  • Glunka Classic
  • Citrus Oxide
  • All Fizz
  • Mountain Runoff
  • Diet Mountain Runoff
  • The New Glunka
  • Diet Glunka Cola
  • Golden Can Soda

There is a 10% chance Sims will get a Golden Can Soda or Lily Lonka's Golden Voucher Bar when they obtain something from the vending machine. Consuming the item will give a 1000 Simoleon reward.

The Sims 4[]

Vending machines are reintroduced in The Sims 4: Get to Work, The Sims 4: Cats & Dogs, The Sims 4: Island Living and The Sims 4: Snowy Escape, and can be placed on both residential and community lots. The vending machine in Get to Work sells snacks such as sandwiches, microwave meals and soda, the ones in Cats & Dogs sell pet treats, and the one in Island Living sells beach supplies and fruit.

Snowy Escape has four buyable vending machines, with three additional ones that can only be found at Mt. Komorebi's festivals. Bought items will occasionally get stuck in these machines, with the only way of getting them out being for a Sim to shake the machine. Shaking one runs the risk of it tipping over and crushing the Sim to death.
