Voodoo Doll In Sims 4

We had voodoo dolls in sims 2 Livin’ Large as a buy mode reward item and in sims 3 as a premium store content. In sims 4 they came with game. There are 3 ways to get a voodoo doll  ( it is not a buy mode item and you can not just buy them ) ;

  • Reaching 3 rd level  Mischief skill – on this level you can buy it from computer for $ 950. It will appear on sim’s inventory and can be bought more than one.It is the easiest way to get one
    • Digging – some rocks on neighbourhoods. Lowest chance to get a one. You need to get a treasure map and select ” dig for treasure ” to search for it.
  • Fishing – on the fishing spots of Sylvan Glades and Forgotten Grotto ( secret locations, you can find more information about these places at the ” secret places guide ” )

Babies and children cant buy , use and cant be binded to it. You need to select a sim and bind it to voodoo doll , to use it. Anyone can be used for it, as long as he or she is on your lot. You can choose your family members or other sims from your friends panel.You can use more than one doll to bind more than one sim. Below are the interactions you will have after binding a voodoo doll to a sim; ( To use it your sim has to be at least first level on mischief skill )

  • Summon – allows you to bring the binded sim to your lot. You can not bring sims to lots while they are at work
  • Frolic – you need to be at least first level at mischief skill – allows you to give +2 playful moodlet and emotion for 4 hours to the binded sim
  • Poke – you need to be at least first level at mischief skill – by electrocution allows you to give angry moodlet and emotion for 4 hours to the binded sim
  • Tickle – you need to be at least third level at mischief skill – allows you to give +2 uncomfortable moodlet and uneasy emotion for 4 hours to the binded sim
  • Soak – you need to be at least fifth level at mischief skill – allows you to give +2 dazed moodlet and emotion for 4 hours to the binded sim and it will increase the need for toilet
  • Cuddle – you need to be at least second level at charisma skill – allows you to give +2 flirty moodlet and emotion for 4 hours to the binded sim
  • Toy With Death – you need to be at least fifth level at mischief skill – wih this interaction, grimreaper will lose the ability to kill the binded sim

There are some negative effects of voodoo dolls, especially if you are on low level at mischief skill . One of them is backfire by the doll. In this situation your sim will receive uncomfortable moodlet by the interactions poke, soak and tickle. The other one is fizzle. You will get this moodlet if you fail using the doll and in this situation your sim will receive sad moodlet by the interactions frolic and cuddle. If you get success by using it, you sim will receive condifent moodlet and a notification will appear to inform you as ” You Do The Voodoo ”. Success in voodoo also helps leveling up at mischief skill.

You can unbind sims with voodoo dolls. For this you need to be at least 5 th level of mischief skill. From your sim’s inventory , select unbind on the voodoo doll and the sim you want to unbind to do this.

Cheats for sims 4 (part 2)

This is the second part of our sims 4 cheats article and we will see more specific and detailed cheats here.
As always, we open our cheat console with ”Ctrl + Shift + C ” and enter ” testingcheats true ” to activate cheats mode. We always have to do this before entering our cheat codes. Lets see what cheats we have in this part and what they bring to us.
cas.fulledit mode – You will have many more edit options with this cheat while creating your sim in the cas mode.
Shift + ] – while holding your object , this command will make your object bigger. After sizing your object , you have to move it at least one tile to see the change.You can redo the sizing with ” Shift + [ ” or ” Crtl + Z ” to undo.Objects cant be made smaller than the original sizes.
money x – enter the amount of money you want, in place of x and the money will be in your household account.
ALT – This is not an actual cheat code but it can be very useful while placing objects. This key will give you more options to place your furnitures. When you hold ALT key while moving your object , the footprint ( grid ) for the item will be ignored. Using this with key with the ” bb.moveobjects ” cheat will give you much more options for placements.
Ctrl + Shift + Tab – You can easily change sims 4 camera mode to sims 3 camera mode or reverse with this code without going to the options menu and change manually.
Free Rotating – For this, you have to be on sims 3 camera mode. As you know there is a limit while rotating an object ( about 45 degree ) but with on sims 3 camera mode by holding the ALT key , ” < ” and ” > ” keys will help you to rotate your item more freely.
stats.fill_commodities_household – all needs will we fulfilled and motives will be maxed of your household’s members with this cheat.
stats.set_skill_level Major_x y – You can increase or maximize any skills of your sims with this cheat. Enter the name of the skill you want, instead of ” x ” and the number you prefer as the level of that skill , instead of ” y ‘.
careers.promote x – enter the name of the career you want to have your sim promoted at. If you want to undo this operation you can type ” demote ” instead of ” promote ”.
traits.equip_trait x – this command will add the trait you replace with ” x ” to your sim.
traits.remove_trait x – if you write a trait name instead of ” x ” after this command , that trait will be deleted from your sim.
traits.clear_traits – this cheat will delete all the traits of your sim.
bb.give_sim_all_skills – your sim will have all the skills at level 10 with this cheat without working on any subject.
careers.promote Gradesschool – this will raise your chils sims’s grade one letter.
careers.promote Highschool – and this one will help teens to raise their grades one letter.
sims.give_satisfaction_points x – enter the amount of satisfaction points that you want instead of ” x ” and it will be added to your sim.
Casclockspeed 0-1-?? – this cheat is for the CAS mode only. It will slow down or speed up the actions of your sim in cas mode.

I thinks there will be a few more articles about cheats as we have tons of more. I hope you find this acticle useful.

Cheats for sims 4

As you know while playing we need to fulfill our sim’s needs such as hunger, sleep , toilet, earning money etc… Of course it is more fun playing on real time and without cheats, building our sims lifes step by step. However you may want some extra money from short way or disable your sim’s needs not to lose time with feeding or sending them to toilet. So, we have some cheats for those who prefer to play with them. Lets see what we can do with these cheats.

While some of the cheats work in build mode, you have to be in live mode for most of them.First we need to enter ”Ctrl + Shift + C” to open cheat panel in the top left corner of the game screen and write ”testingcheats true” to activate cheat mode.

kaching – will give you $1000
motherlode – will give you $50.000
death.toggle.false – this cheat is for disabling your sims’s death by any type
freerealestate on – all houses will be free with this cheat
sims.remove_all_buffs – all negative moodlets will be deleted while positive ones stay
household.autopay_bills true – your house bills will be paid automatically on time ( money will be taken from your account)
bb.moveobjects – The best way for this is using OMSP’ s for my opinion. But if you prefer to play without mods, you can use this cheat. Because of the grids in the game , we cant always put objects very close to each other. With this cheat ( which is my favourite , becuase i only use game to decorate ) you can put any object to where you want. You can also move them up and down with 0 – 9 . But as i told, OMSP’s are the best option because this cheat has also some limitations.
headlineeffects on/off – You can enable or disable headline effects with this cheat. Will be very useful while taking screenshots.
bb.showhiddenobjects – it may take lots of time and effort to find all of the hidden objects in game. With this cheat , all of them will be available and buyable.
bb.enablefreebuild – you can build even on locked lots with this cheat
bb.ignoregameplayunlocksentitlement – some of the game items are locked. To unlock them you need to have career achievements according to the object. Or you can use this cheat to unlock them all easily.
sims.give_satisfaction_points – Write the amount of satisfaction point you want after this cheat by leaving one space. For example sims.give_satisfaction_points 1000. You can buy rewards with this points.
by shift + clicking on your sim – you will see a menu appears with some options. From these options you can make your sim happy or disable/enable its needs.
by shift + clicking on the ground – you will be able to teleport your sim anywhere you want inside your neighbourhood.
by shift + clicking on any object – you will be able to make any object clean or dirty and reset an item.

These are some of the main cheats i wanted to share with you in this acticle. There are so many more such as about relationships, careers etc. And new ones continuing to come. There will be articles about other cheats soon. I hope you find this article useful.

Sims 4 city living

Sims 4 City Living- Apartment Life is coming soon. Expected date for both PC and Mac is 1 st of November 2016. With this expansion pack we will get many new features and new style of game play. In sims 3 we didnt have apartment life, we had ”late night” expansion pack a little similar to it but this will be more different.

The most important change will be living in a community. Neighbours will take a big place in our game. We will live with other people and they will affect our lifes of course. If you play loud music in the late night, your neighbours can be disturbed and come to your door for example. Sim guru Sarah gave some tips about the new expansion pack coming and answered community questions in twitter. Here are some tips i collected from the answers about the new pack we wait.

All the neighbours will be interesting characters, some of them are inspired from tv shows , sitcoms. Diversity of neighbours will make sims lives richer.You will meet them in common areas, entrances and elevators.

Apartments will only be available in the new sims world SAN MYSHUNO, which is also coming with the city living expansion pack. You cant build apartments in other worlds.

Depending to the apartment , you can have 4 families at the same time.

There will be 1 – 4 apartments in one building. Like before , also in City Living maxium 8 sims can live in one apartment.

No building apartments from scratch. You can design apartment interiors as you wish. But you wont be able to build the whole apartment complex ,cant change the exterior walls which is a little disappointing for me as a player who only plays the game for building and designing.

Spaces will be limited. You wont be able to build another room if your house is not big as you want.

You will be able to visit the neighbours in your apartment.

2 new traits and aspiration coming with the pack. Unflirty and vegetarian traits will be available. The new aspiration will be ”city native”. It will focus on meeting new people and exploring the city.

There will be two bed low end apartments.

You can have some problems while living in an apartment with pipes, electrical wires or pests, rats or cockroaches…

Lot Traits will be available for all other lots.

You will experience ”earthquakes”. And it will be a lot trait, that means it will also be available for other lots. Worlds will shake, your sims will react and according to the level of the earthquake moodlets can be changed.

There will be loading screens when transiting between apartments like when you visit your neighbours.

You can have room mates and other households that you can share the building and pay the rent together with.

You can give and take back the key of your apartment to other sims.

You can use styled rooms in apartments.

You can turn penthouses into venuses.

You will pay rent and there will be landlords, who can be flirted or be friends with, which might get your apartment problems solved easier 🙂

There will be elevators and they will be used with no loading screen. You can meet your neighbours in elevators.

There will be festivals you can join, in the new world of City Living. There will be up to 5 different festivals which you can also watch from your windows.

Not all but some apartments will have balconies.

You wont have bills like we have in residental life, Rent will include them and pay all the bills.

Each apartment can have different traits.

These are the some tips about the new game play according to the answers of sim guru sarah and really enough to excite me 🙂

Lastly it will require base game and all the latest updates and patches.

Kids stuff pack

After a long wait for a new pack EA published  Kids Stuff Pack at the 28 th of June. As you can understand from the name, this pack was about adding new stuff, objects, clothes, gameplay etc.. for the kids and costs $9.99 . You need only sims 4 base game to use the pack. You will get;

40 new Build/ Buy stuff
40 new CAS Stuff
3 new styled rooms with the new pack.

As a custom content creator and a player who prefers to play with mods and custom content objects, i am not really interested in new furnitures, clothes or hairs  they bring into game as i can download them whenever i want.But to inform you about what you will get with the pack there are some kids bedroom furnitures, wall stickers, stencils, posters , some new hairs and playful clothes which can be used both for male and female kids.

And as most important issue to me, we have some new gameplay options. I am one of the biggest complainers about the lack of toddlers and unfortunately we still dont have them. It is a really big deficiency that babies transit into kid stage , skipping the toddler stage.We still miss too much game play because of the lack of them and I really hope EA announces coming of toddlers soon. I know really too many people complain about this issue in sims community.Despite this subject, this stuff pack helps us to spend more time with kids in game. As i like playing with families, i needed these features.

One of the new feautures (and for me the best feauture ) of this pack is the Puppet Theater, comes with the puppet stage. Kids can play in this stage box or perform shows for other sims to watch. At first they can perform 2 different shows only but as their skills developed, number of shows will be increassed. It is really cute watcing kids changing their voices according to the characters they perform, and also really loved the little speech bubbles occuring when they are talking the puppets. Kids will have fun and develop their social skills with these shows they perform with other kids. Parents and older sims can watch performances with reactions according to the subject of shows, but they can use this feature.

A new tv channel for kids is also a new addition to the game and a radio station which is called as ”Tween”  which has only 4 new simlish songs in it.

Another new great feature is voidcritters. Kids find, collect these magical monster cards and can trade with each other. There are total 20 monsters to find. You can purchase these cards from computer or search for them by digging trash bins. Kids can play battle games with these monster cards and improve their relationships.  Teens and older sims can only watch these battles but cant play themselves.

Not for the new stuff but for the new game play improvements , i  dont regret buying this pack. Loved the new features and cute activities it brought into game. But have to say again and again, EA  we are still waiting for the toddlers! …

Polycounts

Many people asking about polycounts after i started to mention each object’s poly. I will try to explain what is polycount and what is the importance of it for us.

Each object’s surfaces are made of triangles. We call these triangles, polygons. And number of  these polygons determines the polycount of the object. Everything in your game are made of polygons, objects, hairs, clothes, accessories and even houses. While a simple object has less polygons, complicated objects have more polygons. While a painting have 4-5 poly, a clutter object may have 1000 or more poly. But why this is important ?

There are always conflicts between some creators and users about polygons.Each computer’s performance, graphics and handling is different. So, while some people can use many high poly objects in their game without any problem, some people with low performance computers, may have problem with them such as slowing down their games. For myself, my computer has a good graphic card as it has to be, since i work with 3 d objects mostly. I can use  +20.000 poly objects without any problem.  I even know people who create and use +30.000 polygons. But also some other people thinks even 3000-4000 is high.

Here are some problems you can face because of using high polycount objects in your game. And if you have any problems like these, you might need to check polycounts of items you use for your game.

  • Slowed Down Game
  • Game Freeze
  • System Freeze
  • Slowing Down while zooming and scrolling
  • Graphic Problems

It is also important that how many you have and how much you use high poly items.  If you face any problems, it is better that you use them sparingly. Dont use 20 high poly items at the same time in a lot for example. If it is not mentioned the polycounts of objects, you can check them by yourself. Open the object with sims 4 studio program and go to meshes tab as you see in the screenshot below. You can see the polycount of every item there.polycounts

It is really hard to say what might be considered as ”high poly” or what is acceptable, as we mentioned it really depends on many factors about your computers. But there is one more thing you have to know. Polygons are calculated per tile. You will understand better with an example. For example lets say we have a sofa with 6000 polycount.You may say it is a bit high at first sight. But sofas has 3 tiles, that means they cover 3 grids in game, while a clutter object mostly covers only 1 tile. So 6000/3 = 2000 polygons for 1 tile is still agreeable for all for a sofa. But a decorative object which has 1 tile and has 6000 polygons can be told high poly for some people.

So you need to know specialities of your computer and watch your game to know what you can handle and what not.  If you really like some items but uncomfortable with their polycounts, there are some programs to lower the polygons. Of course when you lower them too much their shape will start to change. I will soon write a tutorial about the easiest way of reducing polygons of objects.

Ghost guide

Ghost are back for sims 4. With the first constent pack of sims 4, we can have ghosts in our games for free.

When a sims die, they visit their house at 00.00 , once every 3 nights. And they go back to their graves with the sun. If you want to call a ghost by yourself, you need to go near the grave and select ”moune” command. With a chance it may appear or not.

At sims 3 ghosts had color options according to the way of their death. But in sims 4 their colors change according to their mood. When they first come out from grave as a ghost, they come with the mood and mood  color when they die.

If you build good relationships with the ghost, you can convince her/him to move in with you. If they move in, you can control the ghost  like your sims.

What Ghosts Do?

  • They move furnitures. You can see that option when you click on an object. Ghost will go inside the object and move it. But after that the object will be broken and need repair. They can also repair object with the command ”ghostly repair”, faster than normal sims. If there is a sim in the room, they can get angry when ghosts break things.
  • They scare other sims.You can find this command from ”mischief”.If the ghost had bad relationships with a sim before die, they will tend to scare them.
  • They can pass through other sims. This command is also under ”mischief. Sims can react good or bad to this action , according to their mood and relationship with the ghost.
  • You can talk about death with ghosts. This action can be found under ”friendly” menu. You can also chat and ask about being dead, with the same menu.
  • They eat and drink like normal sims. But when they drink something, they leave liquid behind them.
  • They build relationships with others, get effected with happenings and build skills.
  • Their actions are effected by the way they die. For example, if they died by a fire, they can be tended to play with fire. If they died of hunger, they will tend to get hungry more often and their mood will decrease faster.
  • If a married sim dies, it wont come as married. You need to propose again.

Lastly you have a chance to bring a ghost back to life with ambrosia flower. You need to have  10 level of cooking skill, 10 level of gourmet cooking skill and 7 level of gardening skill for using ambrosia.
