Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
this is an updated version of my new hacked object.
Still for testing.

SimMacFly Potion

For any Sim who has ever dreamed of flying like a bird over his/her lot, this new potion object is designed for him/her!


<< Free as a bird, fly like a bird... >> now possible thanks to the magic potion of SimMacFly. Just swallow a mouthful and you will feel like a flightless bird, ready to become the wild inheritor of the cloud!
For use outside the home.

  • Catalogue Category: Misc. - General / Miscellaneous
  • Price : 280 §
  • GUID: all of the objects have their own registered GUID. The SimMacFly potion object won't replace the existing potion objects.
  • Geometry: 274 vertices and 194 faces.
  • Supported languages: English and French.
  • Version: 0.2 (testing)
  • No global hack nor "boolprop" cheat required.

I strongly recommend you to take a look at the included guide in HTML Help format (the .chm file) that is natively supported by Windows.
You will find the guide in the zip archive among other *.package files. It contains some useful instructions about the object.

For Mac users, I also uploaded a PDF version of the guide (not required for PC users).

How to use?

Place the potion object somewhere on the lot (better outside the home! ), click on the object and select "Drink". That's all.

This object will increase fun and comfort. Some Sims (depending on their personality) may also watch other flying Sims automatically.

Your Sim will fly until you stop him/her (just cancel the current action) or until his/her motives are low. The Fly action begins just after you have drunk the potion.

See the included guide for more instructions.

Fly alone, with friends or your family!


More detailed instructions are in the included guide!

As usual for hacked objets, unzip ALL of the *.package files to your "Downloads" folder (typically "My Documents\EA Games\The Sims 2\Downloads"). I suggest to make a specific subfolder in your "Downloads" folder; it works fine and it will be better for future updates or removal.
For updates, overwrite any existing files even if they are read-only.

How to add an optional "Fly" menu action to your Sims?

In addition to the potion, you can directly have a "Fly" menu action when you click on your Sims.
To enable this menu action, you need to rename the included file "MajorJeffyFlyActionMenu.packageDISABLED" to "MajorJeffyFlyActionMenu.package" (in other words, remove "DISABLED" from the file extension).
This .package file enables the "Fly" menu action; this is not a global hack, but a social plug-in object. I decided not to make it available by default.

Expansion packs required: University (it is mandatory), Nightlife.

This object does not overwrite any globals or default game behaviors.

If you don't have Nightlife, you can't use the potion object but you can enable the "Fly" menu action as explained above, so your Sims can still fly.
Do not install the MajorJeffySimMacFlyPotion.package file as it is unnecessary.

Redistribution, modification

As this object is currently in testing, please do not clone, recolor or redistribute it on other sites. This rule will change in the future.

What's new
  • Children can now use the potion object and fly too! If your child is already "flying" when holding and drinking the potion, this is normal (potions are normally not designed for children). Just imagine this as a special potion effect on children...
  • The object is now visitor-enabled: your visitors, customers, friends... can drink the potion and fly on their own initiative. To force them to stop, just have your active Sim call them. Of course, visitors will also stop flying themselves when their needs are low or they have got enough fun.
  • New "Fly" action menu: if you install an additional package file named MajorJeffyFlyActionMenu.package (see instructions above), you will get a new menu option "Fly" when you click on your active Sim. If you select this option, your Sim will immediately begin to fly without having to drink the potion.
  • I've added the two remaining "in air" animations taken from the bubble blower.

For known problems, please see the included guide.
If you have a new problem, please report it and include an error log if possible: I'll try to fix it.
I'll always appreciate your feedback or your comments - but sorry I don't provide support by email, PM or anything else.
Note that the object does work fine for me (all EPs + SPs + patches), but it doesn't mean it will work on all machines!

This looks awesome... It's going to be great seeing my sims flying now. Thank you.

I have been retired from Simming for years now. I actually can't believe my work is still up after about 8 years and being downloaded. Lots of memories from the game and this website; these creations are a snapshot of a time in my life. Please continue downloading and enjoy.

Thanks everyone for your messages!

Some answers:
Does this replace a global?

Could you make the same thing for us the real world

If only I could... that would be so great!
how long do they fly?
yea this is an awsome hack, but I have one question, when they fly, how will they ever get down?
see once they have drunk the potion can they stop flying ???

Just kidding; you can stop them or they'll also stop themselves - see the included guide
Sorry kids can't use it now... I'll try to allow them in the future if I find the correct animations.

Ok, so you probably know that I found out it doesn't work on kids. But I did test it on a few different lots and it works perfectly. I have all EPs+FFS. I had no problems what-so-ever....except I did have quite a jealous little boy . He watched and watched and refused any hugs after that for a few hours (seriously). All of my sims stopped flying on their own when their fun was maxed except for the one with the Grim Reaper for her father. She will drink this on her own and never stop. She especially thanks you for this. The teens love it, too. Thanks so much. Works great.

Awwwww.. it's too bad it won't work on kids! This will be great for carnival lots and amusement parks!

This is amazing. How did you do it?

I made some mods for The Sims 1 -- yes, The Sims ONE :-) -- which you can find at
#32 Old 26th Jun 2006 at 8:14 PM
Hi Major, great idea indeed and what a big chance for us that you had also the talent for realizing this cool item.
Thank you very much. It's true that each time I visit MTS2 I get something amazing new stuff. This one is very unusual and could be used by most uf us, either those with fairies end those who like strange things happening in the neighb.
Great job, hope it will be freatured and you will get a moo moo.
Kiss and ciao.

That's hysterical! Can't wait to try it! But in the first picture ("3 Steps"), why does the Sim look transparent or ghostly in insert #2? Is that going to happen to Sims after they drink this?

Waay cool! Thanks for something I didn't even know I needed ;P Can't wait to see them flying around!

Oh, Jonath, I know there's a hack like this already (cuz it's in my game and has been for a long time). Check it out in 'search' or look in the Modified areas. It's one of the most helpful hacks EVER.

Thanks again!

Do you know how cool this will be for SOOOOOOOO many of my sims. Thanx so much for this, it was really difficult trying to find the right animation for flying while trying to take pictures, etc.

Awesome/Amazing Work!
