Ghost Hack as requested by Kabuto

Update 11-21-06
This update applies to those who only have the base game or Uni, so if you do then redownload the applicable version and allow the new file to overwrite the old one.

-All the menu options will now show up for those who only have the base game.
-Removed the option to make sims a solid color since this would make the sim unclickable. Changing a sim's color now also makes the sim transparent.
-Added an option to fix sims that were make unclickable prior to this update.

Update 11-08-06:
Fixed the problem where after assigning the zombie walk to a sim you would be unable to set their walk back to normal. Thanks to SillyBonn and gazania for pointing this problem out to me. This update also makes it so that a zombie's walk can be set to normal.

Makes normal sims look and walk like ghosts and more.

The ghost hack is a social plugin so it will appear as a pie menu option when clicking on the active sim. It also has a registered Guid and is not a global hack therefore it shouldn't conflict with other mods nor override default game behaviour.

Ghost Options

Make Me Ghostlike
Gives sims ghostlike characteristics. (transparency, float when walking, ability to walk through things)

Make Me Normal
Resets the sim to a normal state.

Change My Color
Will change the color render of the sim (options are Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Pink, Purple, Wireframe, Normal)

Walk Style
Changes the way a sim walks. (options are Like Ghost, Normal, Like Zombie)
If you don't have University then the Like Zombie option won't appear.

There are 3 versions:
Ghost Hack(Base Game) for those who only have the base game.
Ghost Hack(Uni) for those who only have the base game and Uni.
Ghost Hack for those with NL and above.

You will need University to make sims walk like zombies. This doesn't actually turn your sim into a ghost it just makes them transparent, float when they walk and gives them the ability to pass through things unhindered aside from that they are still normal sims and will not exhibit any of the other behaviours associated with ghosts. Sims will usually exhibit normal routing behaviour and will only pass through walls or objects when that is the only way to reach their destination, such as with locked doors.

This mod is beyond awesome! I'm really happy that it works for all ages and I love the variety. I do have one question though - will a werewolf walk normal if you tell them to and would you be willing to add the werewolf lope to the list of walks?

If Pets handles the assigning of the werewolf's walk animation the same way Uni handles the zombie's then in theory selecting the walk normal option should make the werewolf walk normal, I don't have Pets so I can't test it or add a walk like werewolf option. If and when I get Pets, the fact that there are werewolves may convince me to get it, I'll certainly add the option to walk like a werewolf, if it can be done that is.

The update I posted yesterday fixes that, so if you redownload it should solve the problem.

I can't make the "change my colour..." and "Walk Style..." work. When I click on them, the pie-menu just dissapears. I don't have any expansion packs, is that why?

penguify and 000ryan, I think the problems you're having may be related to the fact that you just have the base game. I'm going to check into this and see what the problem is.

I have posted updates that will fix the problems that those with the base game or Uni were experiencing.

ianman26, the sim will only walk through walls and other objects only if all other routes are blocked.
