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 hack sounds great but I have question. When you assign a sim to walk like a ghost, does he/she still float like that on a community lots, when you're playing with some other sim from another lot?

it would be hard to do but somehow could you make them have all of the options that a regular ghost would have sept able to move like somthing that could scare the people or a thing that lets them go into items like ghosts do but they have to go back to there tombestones by morining i would relly like to see somthing like this happen

Default Cures Zombiism
Thanks for the wonderful download. I did notice one thing though: apparently, I had an actual Zombie for whom I selected "Make me Normal." He was totally cured of being a Zombie and went back to being a normal Sim who had normal skin color, got older, etc.

He was also a Vampire, but he went back to being a normal Vampire. No problem with my Werewolf either.

Then I can't make her stop walking like a ghost! I just can't get back to having her walk normally, no matter what I try.

Am I missing something? I tried to change her back into a zombie, then picked the "normal" walk on both the walk menu and the main menu. That didn't work. Otherwise, this mod is great ... I just can't use the walk options. The only thing I could think of is that maybe I have something that conflicts with this. Maybe it doesn't like the hula mod or something like that.

Well, I do not have this problem at all so it could be an uncompatible mod, stuff pack, ep or just your game. Or it could be because your using cheats or mabey you should just choose your walking style instead of making them ghostlike and then changing them back.

Oh this is excellent, I have a paranormal family and I really wanted a ghosty Sim that everyone could interact with.
This is exactly what I was looking for!

Will this make me float off the ground while standing? And when i walk it'll make my sim float off the ground like a ghost without the other options?

In other words...

Will this mod give my sims the normal ghost floating ability without me looking like a ghost or do any of the other options?

and will this mod that I want have an * next to the "Walk here" option?

Come to me, clouds. May you rise as an evil storm, born to rip them open. Let the cover of night bear witness. Destroy those who resist so they shall harm me not. Let the blood of many cleanse me, preserving beauty eternal, I pray you.

Dear Smonaff

I'd like to use some of your hacks in a machinima (movie) project I'm working on - the ghost hack, more specifically, and the unlocked fried/shocked hair, possibly a few others, I'm not sure. I'll be sure to put you in the end credits too.

Thankyou for your time

Click on "Overview" and when you read down, a bit, you will probably find Smonaff's very nicely done notes or maybe not?

The ghost hack is a social plugin so it will appear as a pie menu option when clicking on the active sim.

(BTW if you use a teleport menu option, like monique's MQ_Teleport.package, it will probably kick you right out of your ghost-walking mode as it should for safety, anyway.)

Has anyone had any luck with creating a sim, who has the occasional habit of bothering others, like with a light ghostly scare, perhaps? (Movie makers would probably love this kind of ghost.)

Just imagine specter-like sims with the power of Ghosts, oh wow!

And if anyone needs an exceptional ghost or two, just click below.
