Ghost Hack as requested by Kabuto

Update 11-21-06
This update applies to those who only have the base game or Uni, so if you do then redownload the applicable version and allow the new file to overwrite the old one.

-All the menu options will now show up for those who only have the base game.
-Removed the option to make sims a solid color since this would make the sim unclickable. Changing a sim's color now also makes the sim transparent.
-Added an option to fix sims that were make unclickable prior to this update.

Update 11-08-06:
Fixed the problem where after assigning the zombie walk to a sim you would be unable to set their walk back to normal. Thanks to SillyBonn and gazania for pointing this problem out to me. This update also makes it so that a zombie's walk can be set to normal.

Makes normal sims look and walk like ghosts and more.

The ghost hack is a social plugin so it will appear as a pie menu option when clicking on the active sim. It also has a registered Guid and is not a global hack therefore it shouldn't conflict with other mods nor override default game behaviour.

Ghost Options

Make Me Ghostlike
Gives sims ghostlike characteristics. (transparency, float when walking, ability to walk through things)

Make Me Normal
Resets the sim to a normal state.

Change My Color
Will change the color render of the sim (options are Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, Pink, Purple, Wireframe, Normal)

Walk Style
Changes the way a sim walks. (options are Like Ghost, Normal, Like Zombie)
If you don't have University then the Like Zombie option won't appear.

There are 3 versions:
Ghost Hack(Base Game) for those who only have the base game.
Ghost Hack(Uni) for those who only have the base game and Uni.
Ghost Hack for those with NL and above.

You will need University to make sims walk like zombies. This doesn't actually turn your sim into a ghost it just makes them transparent, float when they walk and gives them the ability to pass through things unhindered aside from that they are still normal sims and will not exhibit any of the other behaviours associated with ghosts. Sims will usually exhibit normal routing behaviour and will only pass through walls or objects when that is the only way to reach their destination, such as with locked doors.

Hey! I just came across this... and I'm excited to try it out... left you a much longer post in your message box if you care to read, because I'll be using this extensively if it works, and I know you're still testing this...

Again, many thanks!

that is INTERESTING! i've just downloaded and i can't wait to try it out! i'm so excited! i think this is great for sims-movie-makers... I also hope it won't interfere with werewolves... Am i going to have any kind of problems with werewolves? Never mind. I'll try that and let you know...

I've figured it out! If your sims has turned into a werewolf, this hack still affects them. You can make them walk like a zombie or like a ghost if you want. You can also make them walk normal (like normal, non-werewolf, non-zombie, non-vampire sims), too! (Even if they are tranformed) But only till they transform back to their human form. Cause next night they start walking werewolf-like again... I know it cause I've tried that in my game.
I find it interesting and I decided sharing this piece of information with you. :D

Only a few find the way; some don't recognize it when they do, some don't ever want to...

Doesn't seem to work with Seasons, does work with Pets. Any plans to update?

It works fine for me with Seasons. Make sure you have custom content enabled.

Hey smonaff, I encountered a slight problem using your hack. I'm not too sure how to phrase it, but I'll do my best.

I used your hack and made my zombie-vampire Sim walk normally. After some time, I think I then made her walk like a zombie again. Okay, so another Sim left the lot and came back later. I looked at his wants panel and I saw the portrait of that zombie-vampire whose skintone has changed to vampire only. She also changed pose in her portrait. I was pretty shocked to see that.

When he woohoo-ed with her later (his want anyway), I noticed that the Try for Baby option is unlocked which previously wasn't there because she is a zombie. I had a feeling that she lost her zombie skintone. I saved the game first and I cured her of vampirism. True enough, she regained her normal skintone instead of the bluish zombie skintone! Oddly enough, her portrait showed her doing a zombie pose. Lol!

So I'm not very sure of her zombie status now and I really hope she will be "back to normal" soon. Is it alright if you can fix the hack?

FYI, I have EPs up to Pets and FFS SP only. I have downloaded some custom objects (around 20-ish) and the other hack is my custom career.

Thanks for taking a look at this.
