PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE DOWNLOADING

(Please read this, a lot of questions that people usually ask me about my mod are already explained in the description)

Hi, I'm Skydome.

This is a new mod I've made called enhanced witches. What it does is allow child witches to use magic without stretch animations and Adults and Teens to use magic on them and also adds some new spells and features

How to install

1)First download MagicTuning.7z, WitchEffects.7z and MagicAnimations.7z
2)Then download either EnhancedWitches.7z or EnhancedWitches(flavour 2).7z depending on which one you prefer. Check the flavour info to decide.
3)Unzip them
4)Place them in Mods/packages folder
5)Start the Game. Give your child witch/wizard/warlock a wand.
6)Done

Flavor Info

1)MagicTuning.7z and MagicAnimations.7z are a must regardless of which flavour you get.
2)In EnhancedWitches.7z LoveCharm and HauntingRitual are set to not be autonomous.
3)In EnhancedWitches(flavour 2).7z LoveCharm, HauntingRitual, FireBlast on Sim, IceBlast on Sim, MotiveCurses, Pestilience Curse are all not autonomous.

Additional Details

1)Children won't be frozen solid from iceblast.
2)Toadification and Love Charm can't be used on Children. Children can use them on Teens and Adults though.
3)Children can have spellcasting duels with other children only. I'll try to change that in the future but currently think of it as being illegal under magical law or something
4) The love charm is set to not be autonomous for this mod.

Technical Details

1)The EnhancedWitches.7z is a pure script mod and won't conflict with anything.

2)The MagicAnimations.7z contains the animations, unless someone has made animations with the exact same name and hash, it won't conflict. This 7z file contains 6 packages, all these packages contain different animations and each of these 6 packages have to be placed in the Mods/Packages folder.

3)Now MagicTuning.7z contains a tuning mod. It will conflict with any other mod that modified the ITUN files for magic spells. Please check the mod conflicts section to check which ITUN files are used in this. I also recommend Delphy's dashboard to check for conflicts. Most other witch themed tuning mods will conflict with this one, so please check with Delphy's dashboard. This tuning mod is important for this mod to function properly.

Mod Conflicts


Plans for the future
(Striked means done )
1)Extra Spells like Bad Luck Curse, Knockout Jinx, Energy, Social, Fun, Hydration Charm and Curses. Destoration Ritual etc.
2)Relationship increase and decrease from spells. Like Sims will like you for casting beneficial charms on them and hate you for cursing them.



If there's any problem please let me know in the comments or by PM.

TheSweetToddler for the hand movement animation for teleportation

I'm kinda confussed about this part:
"2)Also keep in mind that a lot of the EA spells are disabled by the ITUN files mentioned above and then new spells are added using a script mod so any tuning mod that tunes the EA spells even if they don't conflict will be rendered useless since the EA spells are disabled. In the near future I'll make some xml files for my own spells with different flavors, I had a problem making them right now but they'll be there in the future."
Does that mean that the tuning I made with nraas retuner to adult spells wont work anymore with this mod installed?

I like this, but... I have a lot of these ITUN and XML files tuned to my own personal play style. (Mosly to keep all spells non-autonomous, but there are a few other tweaks.)

Is it possible for a user to tune yours as well? Or is yours a pure scripting mod that we wouldn't be able to tune?

Depends on the spell. If it's an object spell like magical upgrade or conversion ritual then it'll still work. If it's a terrain spell like cast fire blast on ground, that would work. But if it's a sim to sim spell like sunlight charm then it won't work.

I have some spells disabled in retuner for autonomous, like pestilence and toadify. Is it possible to tweak those spells for no autonomous for all ages in this mod? My witches misbehave a lot on their own without retuner.

I'm not sure if Returner can do it or not, I'll have to ask the people at nraas if Returner can tune custom interactions. Otherwise I'll upload another flavor for the mod where these spells are not autonomous. Check back in like a week.

Thank you very much for replying! If its not possible with retuner and you can find the time to upload an alternative flavor, could you please include the following spells to be non autonomous?
Curses: toadification, pestilence, hygiene curse, hunger curse, bladder curse, haunting curse.
Spells: Ice blast and fire blast also non autonomous.
Your mod is amazing and if it was tweaked to include those interactions being non autonomous, that would be dream come true!

If you have S3PE you can tune those. I have created tuning files for my interactions

Oh you mean like attacking in terms and having a healthbar? that would be epic! I can see how that would be above any modders skill level tho

I had some other cool suggestions btw:
- witch themed teleport
- making objects act like they're possessed
- making sims ugly (like inner beauty with fairies) or pretty
- stealing other peoples life force (filling their age bar while emptying yours by same amount) or giving them yours
- turning sims into pets or small pets
- making sims delerious (random series of moodlets for few hours)
- repell burglar/repo-man
- change weather

Yea like turn based attacking. A Nraas mod like menu will pop up every turn and you select fight or run or use item then if you choose fight choose a spell or use an item like an Alchemy elixir.
A lot of those same ideas I've had for spells. Except the turn into pets is not supported by the game. The console version of Sims 3 had that feature but the PC version doesn't seem to support that. I really wanted to make that too

This is so great mod! Thank you! Btw is it possible to add those fairies spells to witches? I'm playing mostly with witches and the only thing that stop me to add a fairy is that pesky wings and flying animations. So that would be cool

If you use Nraas hybrid and master controller you can have a witch fairy hybrid. You can also get rid of wings with Tremerion's hidden wings mod. I don't have the link but if you Google you can find it.

Wauw that's a pretty well thought out concept, it would probably leave the loser quite devestated with all those curses

maybe it could work like this: when cast, the sim will disappear (like total annihilation in nraas MC) and a pet will appear with only the same name (and maybe similar traits). that way the sim doesn't literally transform but to the player it looks like it. My modding skills are next to zero tho, so I don't know if that'd be an option.

either way i'm already impressed and exited by this version, gonna try it out tomorrow

The Door of Life and Death (that store item) can reencarnate sims into pets for a small chance.. I think a spell based on these codes can work too, not in living sims but in thombs..
Also, I have some spell ideas too.
- An aging spell, that turn sims into babies or make them old
- Teleportation
- Eletrocutate with lightning (small chance of death)
- Banish sims (like genie's) / Powerful banish : make sim disappear forever
- Rain and Snow spell/ Temperature control spells
- Mummy's curse
- Poison spell
- Iniciation spell (turn sims into witches)
- "Plantification"- turn sims into plants for a short time (plantsim's photosynthesis code)
- "Ghostification" (generation's ghost potion)
- Coma spell - sims fall into a long sleeping curse (using the moodlet that make sims pass out after a mummy's fight, but longer, with 4 weeks of duration or something similar)
- Control spell, like genie's
- Invocation (store spell)
- turn a sim immortal
- Making a sim being hated/liked by everyone
- Friendship spell
-Sex change spell
-Cloning spell
- Summon alien (spell casted on the ground, select one random sim to be abducted)
- Summon servant (create a imaginary friend for the caster)
- Summon familiar - a teleportation spell for the active family's pets / add a random pet for the active's family
- Death curse : randomly kill a sim / Powerful death curse : kill a sim and delete their thombstone. (drain the life of the caster)
- Time spell : make interactions like work, do homework or reading books to be faster

Hmm but then the Sim will be permanently gone, I'll have to find a waay to temporarily hide that Sim. Unless you're talking about permanent animal trap. Hope you have fun with the mod
