Ok so I’m curious about this but also slightly paranoid that I’ll break my game…
Have you ever played with giving your sims the GrimReaper trait using cheats?
Are there any risks that it will cause crashes when spawning Grimmy if more than one sim has the trait, or is it a “there can only be one” kind of deal like the sages?
I like the movement animations and im curious to hear what others have done with this.
I've had the Grim Reaper as a regular sim in my main save for a long time and nothing bad ever happened. For the most part, he behaves like a regular sim despite obviously looking different, having a deep voice, and some of his needs being frozen. He still kept his job as the NPC that showed up when someone died in another household, except when there was a death in his own household, which caused a different Grim Reaper to appear.
That new Grim Reaper has been the "official" one ever since, but the old one kept all the other properties that made him special. I haven't played with this family for over a year, so I don't know if the same rules still apply with all the catastrophic patches that have been released since. But you can always make a copy of your save and try it there first if you're unsure.
Something wicked this way comes!
I don't use MCCC.
Amazing! Thanks for the info! I love that your Grim is into meditation too
That sounds really cool! Are they on the gallery?
Turns out I just needed to be patient. My sim replaced Grim Reaper after I changed lots and waited one game day before making him appear. My original Sim must have just been busy elsewhere.
I downloaded some random Grim Reaper and use him to start family instead of orginal Grim. Its just more safe that way.
He's a great dad.
aww cute pic
You used only testingcheats and add family I reckon? Once I used that on Night Wraith and that worked fine, but Night Wraith is not an essential character for gameplay anyway so It was less likely to mess something.
Wise decision! I was worried about this too so I made a separate save file to experiment with and it turns out if you do mess with the original Grim Reaper, the game just loads a clone of him to take on his normal duties so it’s quite safe.
For anyone that wanted to do this though, if you do want to add him to the family then be sure to do testingcheats on followed by traits.remove_trait IsGrimReaper otherwise you’ll have limited interaction options. The downside is he’ll lose his floaty, black smoke movement animation without his special trait. But you’ll be able to marry and have children. You can always add the trait back with traits.equip_trait IsGrimReaper after you’ve had your kids/married if you want to.
Here’s what I replaced my Grim Reaper with:
