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.

Cool! but... if you transform a sim into a ghost,will he/she spread those annoying puddles all over the floor? they're a real pain to clean!

Very cool! :D
I've played with this a little in a house full of freakish creatures :P
My zombie-vampire continues to walk like a zombie, even when I tell her to walk normally. I can make her walk like a ghost, and then choose "normal" or "zombie" and she'll revert to her usual self. The ghost option at least allows her to get places a little quicker..

The vampire will walk like a zombie, and then revert to normal when I told him to. But then I told him to walk like a ghost, and he won't stop when told to walk normally. I had to tell him to walk like a zombie, then normal again.

I didn't try out any of the other ghosty/colour/transparancy stuffs.

Thanks for the info SillyBonn, I didn't actually test it out on zombies.

#15 Old 8th Nov 2006 at 3:30 PM
it might just be the vampire-ness that's making it wonky for me, with all the Bleh! and stalking and stuff. LOL
a plain zombie will be a better test for you.

oh and the colours & "make me ghostlike" and then returning to normal seemed fine with them. I just had to go through zombie walking before getting them back to walking normally.

I tested out the make like a ghost and walk like a ghost options and they worked fine, the colours worked for me too. I don't really have any zombies so I couldn't test that out.

Thanks for the hack, it will definitley come in handy

does it work on all age groups? Curious if I could have a toddler look like a ghost.
Love the hack!

I'm having the walking problem, even with a normal Sim. Hmmm ... maybe not normal normal, but a Sim with purple skin. The colors work great, and fit right in with the fantasy theme on one island. I can also make the Sim ghostlike in appearance, and that's wonderful. But if I tell her to walk like a zombie, I can't get her to stop unless I make her ghostlike. 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.

Love the hack!

Everthing work on all ages, except toddlers and children can't walk like ghosts or zombies (no animations). Assigning the zombie or ghost walk style to toddlers and children doesn't hurt anything though.
