  • I have to wonder... once you've mastered the deaden emotions perk ... can that really be considered (un)living? I mean, what's the point in living forever if you don't enjoy life. And no, staying at "fine" isn't enjoying anything. From …
  • Question - I was thinking about revamping HQ myself, but I noticed that practicing magic requires a lot of floorspace. Now, granted, there's still a lot of extra floorspace even allowing for that, but I was wondering for those who have downloaded/m…
  • I agree that a "There are bugs and it impacts my gameplay but not to unplayability" or some variation there of as an option would have been more accurate for me as well. Most of what I get are minor hiccups - actions cancelling inconvenie…
  • Oh, yeah. Spellcasters don't loose their powers if someone throws a drink in their face. A specific drink that isn't cheap to get the ingredients for or to make, but learning Vampire Lore can be started while they're kids, and teens can learn gard…
  • (Quote) That may be an error, or maybe you accidentally selected it unfurnished?, as that's the starter house which, at least in my game, started with actual furniture in it. Furniture I replaced quickly, but furniture none the less.
  • Not sure if this is a bug or I'm just not being patient enough between casting and selling, but when I use Repario on a painting, the quality goes up, the value does not (which makes it kinda pointless to increase the quality, imo)
  • (Quote) The last listed spell for each school in the spellbook is the Ultimate.
  • (Quote) You need to talk to the sages for these.
  • (Quote) Take your sim to the realm of magic, talk to one of the three sages (they have a glowing rune over their heads) and ask them to make your sim a mage. You need to have a bit of friendship with them before they'll do it, and it requires a sm…
  • (Quote) You can use your caster's Glimmerstone to travel there directly.
  • (Quote) I'm pretty sure it's been fixed. When I got vampires (just last month) continuing to research Vampires on the computer made my character bored and didn't result in any new vampire discoveries. I'll admit I didn't pay attention to if it in…
  • (Quote) That one is known. You have to wait for the spellcaster idle animation to end. If you exit during the animation, it will crash.
  • So I went ahead and used MCCC to let Rosemary have Morgyn's baby. And I think he came out pretty cute. Here's Rosemary (Image) And the two of them just after Harry (named for Dresden, not Potter) was born I don't normally power through the T…
  • (Quote) I've found it worthwhile to continue to use cooking, gardening, and handiness, but that might just be my playstyle. Relying on the Delicioso spell means you don't get to choose what you eat - which could be problematic if you want to enter…
  • I have to ask... for those who want a skill tree... are there really that many variations on Werewolf powers and weaknesses that a Vampires/Spellcaster/Fame style skill tree makes sense? I, personally, can't think of more than maybe a dozen (not co…
  • Okay, I know it doesn't exactly help, but I've had my inital mage give birth and then aged the kid up to child (because this is just a test run, I'm less concerned with the kid getting the good toddler trait, or even having the various gifted traits…
  • (Quote) You don't even need cheats. You just have to dig him out of your unplayed households not in world menu and edit him there. (I didn't check, but you may need the cas.fulleditmode cheat if you want to change more than his wardrobe and hair.…
  • I think they're adorable, and I love the personalities displayed in their commentary when you have them up when brewing a potion. I haven't had multiples of the same kind yet, so I don't know if the personalities are by familiar type or if they var…
  • (Quote) Yeah, I'm not sure how they're doing it either. It took me about 4 Sim-weeks to get Rosemary to Virtuoso. That was 2 days real time, but I had time to binge. Granted, I didn't use the gardening spell much, because I want her to actually …
  • @Sheepiling Oh, good grief, that bun had to go. The rest of the outfits (other than the three you mentioned) I just tweaked a bit, but there is no way his hair is normally full enough to support a bun that big.
  • Wait for the spellcaster idle animation to stop before exiting CAS. It's the animation during exit that causes the crash, as I understand it. I read about it and have made a point to save right after they finish the animation.
  • This is a known problem which will be fixed in the next patch.
  • (Quote) Is that the last spell on each one? You can only learn that one directly from the respective sages. Click "Ask to Teach Ultimate (school) spell"
  • Okay, I have never really liked vampires. At least, not the Romanticized, moody, angsty vampires that came to popularity post Lestat. So I'm a bit biased. I found Vampires in Sims 4 to have incredibly fun gameplay as a lifestate. Lack of eating …
  • Well, best laid plans and all that... So my plan was to have Rosemary - my testing spellcaster - become bff's with Morgyn and that was going to be that. Then they went to the romance festival together (I was going to swipe dragonfruit) and I got d…
  • I waffled between a 7 and an 8, but in the end the gameplay (which is very fun) pushed it to an 8. I mean, I can see where they could have done so much more, and I'm not sure how much of it was lack of time and how much was lack of priority, but I'…
  • (Quote) I'm wondering about that too. Not because I destroyed my Glimmerstone, but because my original Sim was friends with Emelia (one of the Charm household) and Emelia weirdly died from cold at the fleamarket. So when Rosemary learned Dedeathi…
  • Strangerville was fun, and I usually play through it at least once per save now, but once the mystery is over there isn't much reason to go there if your sim doesn't live there (although my military sims seem to end up hanging out at the 8 bells any…
  • So far, my test sim Rosemary has picked up Smudge - dragon Squeaks - Leaf Bat (that's the name he came with) Chronata - Raven Talon - Owl (I think that's the name he came with too) and Fiver - The fairy bunny Basically, if I like the name they came…
  • Go to the lot without a house. Follow the path to the left to the end. If you pull back far enough you should be able to see it once you load in the lot without a house.
