Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi,
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!

Description

<< 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!

Installation

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.

Feedback

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!

Enjoy!

Gawd thanks A LOT!! Now all I need to do is get University then I can download. I don't fairies or witches in my game, but I'm pretty sure a vampire will enjoy a nice fly around without having to turn into a bat.

I just wanted to tell you something.

When I downloaded this, I still had my game open. Even though I hadn't closed the game to put the potion in yet, my sim (Sasuke) still thought of the SimMacFly potion. Odd.

Awsome! Tottaly cool.

I was thinking...
You cloned this off the bubble blower and we can see that from the sims other hand 'holding' somthing and then coming up to their mouth.
Well I had an Idea. Whay not place the potion in their hand when their flying?
That way, they are holding somthing and when they try to blow into it it looks like there taking another swig. Try it. I think it would be nice.

LONG LIVE THE GRILLED CHEESE DEITY!!
