In this guide, I'll discuss ghosts and death in The Sims 3. This applies to both expansions and the console (xbox 360 and ps3) versions of the game. There's a lot to cover, but we'll learn the causes of death for Sims. From there we'll discuss methods of resurrection, how to have a ghost baby and what you can do with your tombstones and urns to possibly get rid of Ghosts when a Sim has died.
How to Manage the Dead in the Sims 3When Sims who are not in your active household die, they go to the mausoleum at the local graveyard. The tombs of family friends and other Sims can be managed here. By doing so, you can get the tombstone or urn required to resurrect dead Sims, let them haunt your household or add them to the cemetery.
Resurrecting Sims and Playable GhostsGhost Sims can only become playable by resurrecting them via the Science Lab opportunity that will appear some time after their death. This appears in the special opportunity slot, so make sure it's clear of any other opportunities if you want it to happen. Your Sim will be asked to bring the deceased's urn or tombstone to the science lab to resurrect them. This will bring them back as a playable ghost. Marriages are not sustained after death, but must be reinstated by proposing again. This Sim will come back as a playable ghost and you'll be capable of making ghost babies. After you've completed this opportunity the first time, Sims' tombs may be taken (by dragging to your active Sim's inventory) back to the science lab for resurrection at the cost of $5,000 Simoleons.
To resurrect a Sim from the dead entirely, have them eat Ambrosia. This can be stored in the fridge until it's ready to be served to the ghost. For a ghost in the house, this will usually be a simple matter of placing the dish at their feet or on a table and making it accessible to them. Even in the graveyard, they seem to know what it is and will go straight for the ambrosia. If the Sim was under your control before, they'll be returned to your household if there's enough room, upon bringing them back to life. Follow the link to learn more about making this dish. It will bring a Sim from death (ghost) back to a normal state, and can perpetually halt death due to aging when eaten by living Sims. The Sim's age bar will revert to 0 days at that state in their life span.
Pet Ghosts and Ghost BabiesPets grow old and die, and will appear at night just like regular Sim ghosts. This applies to dogs, cats, horses, and Unicorns. You can get an opportunity to resurrect them, and a male ghost can be bred with a normal female of that pet type to produce ghost kittens, puppies, or foals.
Winding the Death Clock - Returning a Ghost to the Sims 3 NetherworldYou can send a playable ghost Sim back to the netherworld by clicking the urn or tombstone in their inventory. Ghost Sims will eventually need to return to the netherworld once they've been made playable. This is due to the aging feature, which applies even to ghosts. That is, unless you've never resurrected them fully with ambrosia. Eventually the Sim could be resurrected again because their ghost will return from the netherworld in the future. When is not yet determined, but they do come back! They always come back! I hope this guide to ghosts in the Sims 3 has been helpful, feel free to comment on this and offer any addtions or corrections at our Sims 3 Forum.
Being a mirror of real-life events, The Sims 4 lets us deal with a lot of heart-breaking stuff, including death. By now, most of us Simmers have wished for an easy way that would let us resurrect Sims back to life. And that is why we are here! In this post, we will talk all about resurrection methods in the game. We will give you all the information on how death and revival work for our Sims. By the end of this guide, you will know when and how to execute these advanced tricks to your advantage.
It is, however, still possible to conquer death in-game and to restore our Sims back to their vital selves, as there are creative ways to undo death in The Sims 4 without cheating. Yep! You do not have to worry about losing your precious characters in the game, as we have gathered all the possible ways for you to resurrect Sims who have already crossed the other side. Read below to find out.
There is a total of 10 ways to revive your sims who have died in-game. Take note that not all of these resurrection tricks would be easy to achieve, but some are much easier than others. Select the best one for you and use it to bring your dead Sim back to life! Remember, there are no guarantees that your Sims will live, but if you try hard enough, maybe the gods of the game will be kind enough to bring them back. ?
You can also create some items in the game to defy death. For example, writing the Book of Life is a great way to save sims from perishing permanently. When a sim has been bound to a Book of Life before death, they can then be summoned after death. These are the steps on how you can craft the Book of Life:
If you have ever played The Sims 3, you know how essential it is to have an Ambrosia on hand whenever death rings the doorbell for your sims. In The Sims 4, it still functions that way. Yep! Ambrosia is a mysterious and powerful food that could resurrect sims who have died. It is also famous for its ability to restore youth for older sims who never want to age. However, it is not easy to craft this particular meal, which requires your sim to obtain rare ingredients. But how do you produce Ambrosia?
If you are tired of going through elaborate efforts to restore the lives of your dead sims in the game, there is, of course, a simpler method to resurrect them. The MC Command Center is your best bet in easily defying death in the game. This all-in-one mod helps Simmers in many aspects of The Sims 4, and it also proves to be helpful when it comes to undoing death. Here are the steps for using this ultra-powerful mod to bring your Sims back to life:
There is another method to cheat your sim back to life. This method is a little bit unpopular because most Simmers are not aware of this little trick! This reliable cheat involves undoing the perishing of your sim, by using an easy cheat that is customizable, depending on the cause of death of your sim. Here is how you can use this cheat to help resurrect your sim:
There is a way for you to keep yourself from resurrecting your dead sims over and over. It is by choosing the option wherein your sims never have to face death in the game again. Yes! There is a way to eliminate the aspect of your sims dying, at least, as long as you choose to. By using the following simple cheat, you can disable the concept of death. Click CTRL + SHIFT + C until the cheat console appears. Type testingcheats true then press enter. Next, type death.toggle false on the cheat console.
You can still employ most of the methods listed here to resurrect sims on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. You may still cook Ambrosia, write the Book of Life, try your luck on the Whispering Wishing Well, use the magic of Spellcasters, or plead and give a Death Flower to the Grim Reaper to help reverse the death for your sims. You may also still use the exit-without-saving method to easily assist you.
However, the MC Command Center resurrection method is limited to PC use. You cannot use this convenient mod for The Sims 4 on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 to bring your dead sims back to life. So, choose from the other options available!
There are several different ways to go about resurrecting your Sims and you can still socialize with the ghost while you keep busy and move them in. Just make sure to keep around the gravestone or urn, and never release them to the netherworld if you intend to resurrect them.
Another option is to go to a whispering wishing well which is unlocked with the Romantic Garden Stuff with which a ghost can offer money. They can wish to be resurrected again and if negative, they will resurrect and die again. Depending on the simoleons granted depends on the chances of success as well as the face of the wishing well after the wish is granted.
If you get a face that is hooded, chances are you are going to die or resurrect and die again. Children will not be harmed ever with negative effects, but their grades will be, but if you wish for a child then the negative effect would be that you now get a ghost child.
Unfortunately, there are no cheat codes to resurrect the dead, but you can add the Sim to your household to keep them around. They will path through walls as they are a ghost and the unfortunate thing is that while it may sound like a good idea, depending on how they died, depends on what happens around them. For example, if they died from a fire, then things may start to burn around them at times. So in this case, it may be better to befriend them and just have them visit every once in a while.
For instance, I play with Aging On, so I've resurrected Elder sims with the death flower, after they die of old age. They will usually die from old age again about 24 hours later. If you're playing with Aging On, and resurrecting by giving Grim a death flower, they will keep dying of old age. The time they have left after resurrection starts to get smaller and smaller. I've resurrected an elder in this way for several days just to try to get an aspiration finished and let me tell you - it becomes a pain! It starts out that they get about 24 hours, then the time between deaths gets shorter and shorter until it's happening every few hours.
But, if your sim dies from something else - say, an emotional death - and they're not dying of old age, then it's totally worth it to resurrect them. They won't keep dying of the same thing, but they still run the risk of dying by the same means or another means sometime in their lifetime. I had a Young Adult sim who died of hysteria (Death by Laughter). I gave Grim a death flower while he was trying to take the sim, and the sim resurrected and lived the rest of his life, eventually dying of old age. But he did eventually die. 2b1af7f3a8
