Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Last code update 2014-06-07 - Fixed animation so it is now usable by adult sims; minor fixes and adjustments.

The Death Note grants its user the ability to kill anyone whose name and face they know, by writing the name in the notebook while picturing their face...


Inspired by the Death Note Manga/Anime series.

Requires base game patch level 1.42 or higher (tested till 1.67).

The Death Note cannot be bought, it was dropped on Earth by a shinigami (a god of death), you will need to find it...

Main Features:
  • Write Sim's Name - Allows you to pick a Sim (from known sims, celebrities or in current lot); the sim's name will be written in the Death Note and the sim dies.
  • Write Cause of Death - If the Death Note is clicked while a sim's name is being written, it allows you to specify the cause of Death for the sim.
  • Read Instructions - Shows the Death Note instructions.


The available Death types depends on the installed EPs and on the current Sim state (e.g. Mummy's Curse death is only available with World Adventures EP; Drowning death is only possible if the sim is swimming; etc).
Due to some EA bugs, there are some cases where the grim reaper resets and fails, leaving a sim's corpse in an inconsistent state - to avoid this, this mod has a clean up mechanism, that if a death note's killing isn't completed after 3 sim-hours, it will reset the sim back to life.

There is an optional tunning package available, for users who are familiar with editing them in S3PE.
In the tunning package some options can be modified, e.g. ShowCreationLocation, MoveCameraToTarget, WritingDuration, AllowAdults, etc...





Special thanks to Vaan.21 for coming up with the idea for this mod.

Happy killing...

This is amazing, however I'd rather wait until an adult can use it. I should really try finishing the anime, but I'm backlogged on so many shows <<;

I downloaded & installed this mod with no problems, and used buydebug to get the deathnote, placing it on my teen's desk. When I try to do anything with it, all that comes up when I hover the curser over it is the hand, and all I can do is move it, I can't even put it in my teen's inventory. Please help?

As for this, sigh... if only I could get an adult to use it. I need ways to killing those annoying people who keep asking him out on dates - he drops everything he is doing to tell them to piss off, forever, but won't stop receiving (or answering) them. A little murder should do the trick.

Can you date from the afterlife?

The love letters were introduced in seasons

does anyone know if the kill gets credited toward NRAAS' assassination mod? I know desecrate's pistol and rifle, as well as dexter the bear, all work with the assassination mod, so hoping that this does too.

I should have 1st asked if it worked on 1.57... the only interaction I'm getting is "give gift" when it's in my teen's inventory (also tried it in a young adult's inventory and get the same thing). Any ideas?

[ETA] You have to direct the sim to pick up the "notebook", then the interactions will be available, but if you put it directly into their inventory (via "the hand of god") then it only gives the "give gift" interaction. Still trying to figure out if this will give credit for the kill with the assassination mod. When they're not in the same area/room, the kill doesn't get credited, but will try to find out if it does when they are a "witness" to the actual death after they have assigned the death note.

[last ETA] YES! It works with the assassination mod , but only if you witness the death.

I just found the notebook on Uni grounds, but nobody in my hood can pick it up and use it because I'm playing the student... It would be greatly appreciated if you could make the interactions available for adults (I tried to open your mod and Buzzler's Scribbling pad in S3PE to see if I could do something myself but I have to admit I'm far too incompetent to make sense of the files in the package unfortunately).
Pretty please ? :3

My adults can use it, but they just stand there when you click the interaction rather than sit down and write. You have to wait a little while before that little spark thing happens above their head signifying that they're finished "writing". I can't remember if I've used this since patching to 1.63, so will test it out when I can and reconfirm or unconfirm that that's what still happens.

I've had my eye on this mod for a while, but I've always shyed away from downloading it because only younger lifestages can use it. have you considered getting together with the creator of the Scribble-pad mod and getting animations so that adults and older can use it too? (Not requesting, just wondering!)

I love this mod, I always wanted a serial killer in one of my neighborhoods, even if he kills with supernatural abilities. I don't mind if it's child-teen only because it offers a good opportunity having an Omen-type Evil child. It works with 1.67 patch, by the way, as well.

Maybe this is a stupid question, but here goes nothing:
Suppose my simmies were to find and use this notebook. What would that mean for then when they die? In the anime, Ryuk mentioned that a person who uses the Death Note forfeits their soul. When they die, they don't go to heaven or hell -- they simply stop existing. Is there some way to ensure that any sim who uses the Death Note CANNOT become a ghost or be ressurrected under any circumstances? After all, when they die, their soul goes poof! There would be nothing left to bring back, no matter what way you're thinking of.
Also, what about the Shinigami Eyes? A sim who makes a death with a Shinigami (The Grim Reaper, maybe, or a townie specially coded for this purpose) can see the name and remaining life of a sim floating over their heads. It would be like a permanent plumbbob, but in red numbering and lettering. Also, it would let you know if anybody else in town had a death note, because the number of their remaining life wouldn't be there. For the sake of not overtaxing the computer, let's say that it would only happen with sims who were on the same lot (or within a certain block distance) of the Death Note-owning sim. All of this would, of course, come at the price of halving whatever remains of their lifespan. Maybe that could be achieved by treating the Shinigami Eyes like a demi-lifestate or hidden trait?
Is any of this possible?
