  • I made Bella Goth a spellcaster (and cheated to give her an ancient bloodline trait), but had both her children not have magic. I just liked the idea of her having it be a secret. In a more story based game I’m thinking of having it so Cassandra does have magical visions of the future, but didn’t get the full shebang so to…
  • So I named my own familiar cat for my simself after my IRL cat: Ariel. The joke when I got him was multifold. 1: I was an English Major, so Shakespeare Name. 2: A hurricane had just hit. 3: I was down on my luck and felt isolated and alone. So he was my Ariel to my Prospero. (Which: Ariel the air spirit that Prospero…
  • @ryttu3k oooooooooooh the tattoos really make it! If you happen to know off the top of your head, where did you get the back and thigh tattoos? I have the face one already but those.... 😍 I’ve been going back and forth whether I want to add tattoos to Morgyn, and I hope I can get the “backup” sages soon (the ones that pop…
  • Eh, I mean, I'm sure some people here dislike them because they are ugly, but with me personally it's more a character design issue. Their outfits are designed more to feature the pack than to display their personalities. Like Gemma is a goofball! Whodda thunk? So I brightened up some of her color palette a bit and made…
  • Possibly, as I am running MCCC, but usually if there is a massive glitch in the game (especially as this is the version that came out with the patch, not after the game pack) I would be surprised if it prevents this without it noting it. And the fact that this is the first I’ve seen of this specific issue, it makes me…
  • Aahhhhh I love the original, but the shaved side is also cool too. But I think if you go with the shaved side they need some more eyeliner or something else to sell the look.
  • Huh that’s weird. Do you have any other mods? I’ve been running a 100 baby challenge with a spellcaster and have her use the glimmerstone a lot to poof into the realm, and have yet to have any issues regarding this. I have mods in my own game (and a LOT of cc), but made sure they were all updated and been keeping a close…
  • Yeah, I’m boggled at the lack of gallery sims. I love downloading them each pack, and normally with most packs we get a good bit. Heck, even with Strangerville we got Strange Town sims! And considering there are at least 3 sims (the previous sages) they could add, or some of the background/dueling characters.... it’s a…
  • Thank you! 💚 Whenever I redesign sims I try to stay true to their style, personality traits, and facial features- just then go to town with all the packs and CC I have, and maybe tweak a few things to more match my cartoony style instead of Maxis’. (Generally this means- slightly embiggen the eyes, raise and separate the…
  • You know what, I’m going to do a direct comparison for fun. Because although I’ve done a direct comparison in my head between sims 2 and sims 4 spellcasters since I’ve been very recently playing a sims 2 legacy where everyone is a witch I didn’t have to look much up. But I honestly can’t remember sims 3 witches except the…
  • My dragon-in-human-form first maxed spellcaster, Ratheca, learning how to free herself from all the curses she managed to gather. Katrina Walsh, the first spellcaster in my Legacy family (though she isn't of the main line), learning how to fly with her new Sixam Owl. Considering she is a Pufferhead, who knows if she was in…
  • So, I am slowly warming up to these sages (although I always loved Morgyn and am hyped of their Untamed Sage status), after I tweaked them I like them a LOT better. Simeon I'm still tweaking, but I thought I would show my own edits. L. Faba, with a different hairstyle and skin detail, only really required a slight tweaking…
  • So, finally tweaked the Charm family where I like... most of them... now! Still not happy with Darrel (his face is just... ??? Each seperate part is fine, but the way they work TOGETHER.), but I find they have more charm now.
  • On top of that, they claim they’ve done EVERYTHING in an hour or two. Which means not only maxed rank and learned every spell, but utilized every spell and magical action. Which. Look. I have to put blocks to purposefully slow myself down with this game. I am that simmer who by the end of gen 1 in my legacy had them in a…
  • Hmmmm, I think that is part of the design. Unless recipes are tied specifically to skill level (like with cookint), they tend to disappear. For example, saved and moved a sim who had max cooking and had learned several City Living recipes. Although cooking level was maintained, I lost all the city living recipes on him 😩…
  • Almost had mine die once- it was a close call but I have been lucky since then. Definitely got me sweating a bit. 😬
  • From the twice I’ve done it, setting things on fire with magic does not seem to trigger the typical FIRE!!! Reaction. At least within the timeframe to then put the fire out, and give your sim a confident buff (if they don’t have the chilio spell)
  • I need to check out lilsimsie’s, buuuut as a nerdy occult player a part of me wants to take on the challenge to design the HQ myself to my personal tastes. Maybe make it a bit like the Winchester mansion. Something wild, idk.
  • Yeah, this is the best bet. I’ve used it and gotten every pregnancy as twins since I picked it as a lot trait.
  • Exactly. Like, I get why they made the design decision they did- buuut man sometimes I just think about what could’ve been. Overall cute and fun but some aspects seem to be a passed opportunity for making deeper gameplay.
  • It’s funny because I seem to be at the opposite end of a lot of a lot of the critics where the more I play the game, the more I adore it. There are so many uses for the spells, the system is fun, and there are so many ways to plot storylines with curses and potions. And the build/buy, oh lord the build/buy. We have a huge…
  • Well dang I want it too. Darnit, I just cruse proofed my main magic user though...
  • Just occurred to me since I was catching up on Dragula last night, but I have a feeling that Morgyn would be a fan! I wish I could get some of the Boulet Brother’s outifts in game for him, but alas. 😭 @EA_Rtas yeah the bun is uh... just a very interesting one 😂. All I could think is Morgyn was using magic to get that…
  • It’s from the Rustique collaboration between cowconuts and cowplant-pizza on tumblr! It’s a great lil’ men’s fashion pack with some really cute looks. One of the shirts I’m using for Morgyn’s other hot weather look. Not sure if I can link it but you should be able to go to either of their tumblr pages to find it. And yeah,…
  • Couldn't find him around in my game, so I went to cas to get a pic of the skin details and minor changes I made to make up and accessories. And the new man bun. Didn't want to blow up the post with all the different outfits, so sticking to the classic for now. Debating whether to swap his green eyes with another, since I'm…
  • I have mixed feelings about them do to several factors right now, with me see-sawing back and forth a LOT. Because I can see what they were trying to do, but:.. yeah. For example: Would’ve loved for them to be a bit more actively relevant in spellcaster spell work, with each one giving different buffs! Buuuut design wise I…
  • You know, with the animation in CAS I wonder if they originally had plans to make the kids able to do some magic, but ran out of time. 🤔 Because the animation in CAS is marvelously fluid and wonderful.
  • Well, to fit with the theme of witches I definitely think the immortality potion should be kept in game, Buuuutt... On further thought I kinda which the potion of rejuvenation was either A) a potion that literally bumped you back a life state age (if you are an adult, it bumps you back to YA). Maybe made it so teens…
  • That was one of the first things I tried in my game, and on multiple visits... yeah unless you have the mod it will start drawing from the premades eventually again. I’ve been calculating and testing it in my current spellcaster save, and from what I can tell you need at least several teen spellcasters, several elders, and…
