 Upgrade to v1.1.1:
  • Added Chinese language (thanks GreenOnionC)
  • Changed the method of compressing the archive, which means you do not need 7-Zip to unpack the mod
Hello everyone! I've wanted to make this mod for a long time. The action "Bring the Lightning", unfortunately, is tied only to the buff. This mod fixes the problem. Made it in about three days. I even had to draw an icon for this mod, and, surprisingly, fits well into the style of the game (my opinion).

What does the mod do?
This mod adds a new trait - "Heavily Charged". With this trait, you can shoot lightning at any distance and enable various effects (sparks and glow of the eyes).

Installation
Place the script and mod in the Mods folder. Simple, right?

How do I get it?
This trait is intended to expand the gameplay, get an incentive to get this trait. It is not sold in the Reward Shop. You have to try hard to get this trait. So, you need to get one of these traits first - Storm Chaser or Erratic. This is required to unlock the Hypercharged buff. Then strike the Sim with lightning three times. Why exactly three?

1. The first time you get a charged buff;
2. Second time you get the Hypercharged buff, but don't get this trait;
3. The third time, if the action of the necessary buff does not end, this trait will open to you.

Functions:
In future versions, most likely, the possibilities will be expanded.

1. The ability to shoot lightning at an unlimited distance. This new action comes with this trait. The old remains the old.
2. Shoot lightning bolts at sims and objects
 WARNING: This interaction is too powerful. It allows you to kill your Sims. Use it at your own risk!
3. Change the display of effects from a trait:

4. The most important thing is to feel like Zeus! 

Supported languages:


Conflicts:
There is a conflict with this resource: E882D22F:00000000:000000000002D714 - this mod overrides the priority and disables the action if the sim has this traitIn other cases, there should be no conflicts

Is it just me or does the download fail to extract?

Everything should be fine. Try downloading the archive again.

For me it failed to extract with WinRAR (my default extractor), but I was able to extract it with 7zip. Try a different extractor and it might work.

Does it work on vampires and magicians? If so, where can I find the interaction in the Sim menu? Thanks for this mod, I like having a lot of effects.

Yes! This trait works for mages and vampires. To toggle effects, click on the active Sim and find their associated interactions. Well, to shoot lightning, click on the ground.

That's a good one, thanks. But i would love to strike another sims and watch them die. Like "death by lightning" I like to create stories of evil sims... could you do that? There's another trait that i miss so much from TS3. "Pyromaniac" Can you make it? Sorry for my bad english. I'm brazilian and new user in here. I've trying so much to ask a modder for this. Thanks

Hey! Yes, I can do it. I didn't add this feature because I thought it was too harsh. Regarding "Pyromaniac": it will be even interesting, considering how to do it correctly (what animation to use, at what distance it will happen, etc.). Thanks for the idea!

Hey, this is great. I'm not sure how difficult this would be, but what if you could perhaps teleport with lightning, if that makes sense? Like Raiden from Mortal Kombat. I know Triplis' Sorcerer Mod has a great teleportation mechanic, so maybe it could be kind of similar?

I watched this ability. The mechanics are quite interesting, but most likely quite complex. I will study this, but now I am busy with my studies. Maybe I'll start at the beginning of summer.

Hey so I kind of think it would be fun ti add that, even if it is seen as cruel. I just think it would be fun like supervillains in the Armaggedon mod.
