I might be the laziest person on earth but I really hate the fact that sim witches have to have some ingredients and reagents just to cast a single spell. So I went and made this little hack to remove the requirements so that reagents are no longer needed.



This girl from Belladonna Cove (whose name escapes me at the moment) has nothing in her inventory yet she can cast any spell she had learned. All spells from the 3 alignments can be cast without any reagent.

Did you learned enugh to teleport? you might missing magic powers (I dont know what it named) not magic skills though, when you use it alot there is some point your sim cannot do it anymore... you have to go to the magic book poduim...

@treeag are you going to update Sim Transformer? its so annoying to spwan witches/warlockks and make them make you one...

Thank you - I don't mind making the ingredients, but the sheer numbers are mind-boggling - however, you can buy them from the head witches too.

Of course, I'll probably be using this myself anyway, then I can decorate my house with those spell ingredients.

You all are welcome

Regarding teleport, in my game witchy sims can teleport just fine so if it's not working for you then maybe something else is interfering as my hack doesn't even touch the witch teleportation code in any way...

And oh, about sim transformer, yes I'm gonna post an updated version sometime next week. Actually I've updated the code, it just needs to be cleaned up a bit and I'm away from my pc for the weekend. So yeah, I expect it to be up in a few days or so .

treeag I have another request for you, can you update the code so people without FT nor UNI will be able to make zombies? I heard that zombies are included in AL since if a evil witch try to ressurect a person it turns out to a zombie, but I cannot find the zombies skin etc. at the games folder...

Neutral alignment lets sim do all Neutral Spells + 5 Good an 5 Bad so there has be a trick/way to get that alignment to let sim do all spells

Default Thx.
Thank you for this. I hated taking time to make reagents. Now, someone needs to make it so you can choose the type of spell to cast and you can cast any spell no matter what your alignment. But, it still affect it.

In my main neighbourhood I could not see the leader witches even after I searched for them with Insimenator. Gabriel8, in my game my witches cannot teleport even if this option is available when reviewing the magic book. Witches cannot teleport, even though it doesn't require any ingredients. It's sad - another mistake made by EAxis.


If you want to get a witch made for now until he gets the transformer uploaded, do this;
use the quick relations from insim to make the neighborhood mutual acquaintances. Then go to your phone and call a sim- browse through the list (its easier in list form not thumbnail) and look for the name of any witch- good or evil, you will be able to tell since after their name it trails off to describe them as incredibly good (something like that) or absolutely evil (cant recall exactly ) but you get the idea. Invite them to the lot. One they arrive, I made them my best friend with the relations adjuster (from insim) and I got the option to learn the ways of the witch. I hope this helps ya. :3

Or just use the boolprop cheat
"boolprop testingcheatsenabled true"
click on SIM chose "Spawn"
then look for "make NPC". there are now TWO options to make NPC's. The first one has all the old ones in .. if you're in that go back and look for the second time it comes up - that one will have just the good and evil witch in it.
Pick one, wait a bit until the game generates her and then go greet her. You still have to make her your friend the old fashioned way though...

why dont you just make a powerful witch then have them use the "Appello Simae" on the sim they wanna turn into a witch

then when they arrive use "Magus Mutatio"

Great! I hated the idea of having to charge your wand with objects. But it does remove the challenge....oh well!

I hope I don't encounter problems...that teleportation thing is cool...

I agree with Cubhicbu, I wish a sim could do all spells without forgeting any other spells.

What witch forgets a spell anyways? :D
