Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
AFTER SOME TESTS, IT’S CONFIRMED THAT THE MOD STILL WORKS WITH THE LATEST UPDATE


After a lot of time composed by sweat, tears, and rage, here's the genie mod!
Let's see what this mod does:

-A new and dusty lamp!-
A brand "new" object can be found in buy mode and It's called the "Ancient Dusty Lamp". It can be found in the Decorations section. This lamp cherishes something or "someone" mysterious inside and the only way to find out, is to rub out the dust on it. Given this small description, let's see what you can do with this object! You can:
- Put it in your inventory: It shouldn't be difficult for your sim to carry such a little lamp.
- Inspect the lamp: Your sim will wonder what could be the mistery inside this lamp... Or it will probably comment about it's cleaniness... Once your sim has finished inspecting it, they will no longer be able do that.
- Rub the lamp: Your sim will kneel before the lamp, and will give it a lil'rub. Once they've finished the interaction, congratulations! You will finally have your genie! The genie will stay on your lot for about 5 hours. Don't worry if she leaves, just rub the lamp again and before you know it, she will be back. It's necessary to put the lamp on the floor to do this interaction, otherwise the animation will look weird.


-Becoming a Genie's Master-
After you have summoned the genie, you will become her master and nobody else will be able to rub the lamp or ask for a wish to be granted other than the sim who rubbed the lamp. After your sim has finished the wishes, and the genie has finished her time on the lot, you won't be able to rub the lamp (neither if you buy another lamp) for about 2 days. If you want to spawn a genie before the cooldown ends, you'll have to choose another sim to rub the lamp.


-Genies: wishes or tricks?-
Now that you have a genie, you can ask her to grant several wishes. Though their outcome may not be always positive. That's right! Genies won't be that innocent this time! There is 40% chance that your wish will be actually be a trick from the genie. Now, let's see what the wishes and their outcomes are:

  • Wish for Happiness
    Positive Outcome: Your sim will have the "Happiness!" (+10 happy) buff which will last for 1 day. This buff may result in a backlash, making your sim die whenever it feels playful!
    Negative Outcome: Your sim will have the "Why can't I be happy?!" (+10 sad) buff which will will last for 1 day.
    Once this wish has been granted, you'll have to wait in order to wish for it again.
  • Wish for Wealth
    Positive Outcome: Your sim will have the "Simoleons, Simoleons, SIMOLEONS!" (+8 happy) buff, and it will receive between 80K and 100K simoleons!
    Negative Outcome: Your sim will have the "Where are my simoleons?!?" (+8 uncomfortable) buff, and it will lose 100K simoleons.
    Once this wish has been granted, you'll have to wait, in order to wish for it again.
  • Wish for World Peace (Instable, mean or evil sims aren't able to ask for this wish to be granted)
    Unique Outcome: Your sim will receive the "Peace and love!" (+8 happy) buff which lasts 6 days. The buff will be spread to every sim in and outside the lot and, If you make your sim travel, every sim near and far the community lot will receive this buff. The sims who have this buff will walk happily and will have more success in friendly interactions. Once your sim's buff expires, they will not spread the buff again.
  • Wish for World Misery (Only instable, mean or evil sims are able to ask for this wish to be granted)
    Unique Outcome: Your sim will receive the "Misery and Discomfort!" (+8 energized) buff which lasts 6 days. The buff will be spread to every sim in and outside the lot and, If you make your sim travel, every sim near and far the community lot will receive this buff. The sims who receive the buff through your sim will be angry instead of energized and they'll have less success in friendly interactions. Once your sim's buff expires, they will not spread the buff again.
  • Wish for Romance
    Positive Outcome: Your sim will have the "Cupid's Arrow" (+10 flirty) buff which will last for 1 day. With this buff, your sim will have more success with romantic interactions.
    Negative Outcome: Your sim will have the "Is Cupid blind?" (+10 tense) buff which will will last for 1 day. With this buff, your sim will have less success with romantic interactions.
    Once this wish has been granted, you'll have to wait in order to wish for it again.
  • Wish for Youth (Only Adults and Elders are able to ask for this wish to be granted)
    Positive Outcome: Your sim will return to the previous life stage and have the "Smooth skin!" (+10 confident) buff which will last for 1 day.
    Negative Outcome: Your sim will advance to the next life stage and have the "Wrinkles! Wrinkles everywhere!" (+10 uncomfortable) buff which will last for 1 day.
    Once this wish has been granted, you'll have to wait in order to wish for it again.
  • Wish for the genie's freedom
    Unique Outcome: The genie will be free from the lamp's imprisonment and will no longer grant wishes. She will re-gain her lower body part and, after some time, they will change their look casually. She will not become part of the family automatically, It's up to you to decide whether she becomes part of your family or not.

-Freed Genies abilities-
So you decided to make the genie part of your household? Perfect! So expect for them to have these abilities:
  • Summon food
    You can summon various types of food, like Grilled cheese, Salmon, Lobster Themidor, etc. The quality of the food depends on their mood. So I highly suggest that you to keep your genie happy.
  • Magically clean sim
    When clicking on other sims, the genie will have the ability to clean sims. They will clap their hands, and the targeted sim will glow a lil' bit, raising their hygiene need. Also, they'll receive the "Magically Spotlessly Clean" (+4 confident) buff which lasts 3 hours.

You surely noticed that I used "She" when refering to the genie. The reason is simple: In this version, genies will always be female. In a future update I'll implement male genies (although I think it's possible to give to a male sim the freed genie trait through cheats)

Known bugs:
- The genie will appear as a normal sim in cas
- When freed, the genie will not perform the animation properly.
- The sim might perform the "rubbing" interaction more than 1 time.
- The genie might appear with some accessories such as glasses, bracelets or rings.
- The genie pie menu might appear on other sims.
- Typo in the lamp's description.

Special Thanks:
- Thanks to Merman simmer, who helped me by creating a lamp and a top for the genies.
- Thanks to Teanmoon as well. She helped me by giving me the permission to use her hair and her crown models for the genies.
- Thanks to SACRIFICIAL, who helped me by injecting the interactions via python.
- Thanks to Snatif for the "simvisible" parts for the unfreed genie

Sounds cool but it's way to easy and too cheaty. Could you make a version where is really hard to get a lamp and the buffs last for less time? Like lvl 10 of Archaeology and luck?

Might sound weird but, I love you Nyx! I love every single one of your uploads and you really bring life to the Sims 4 Modding Community. As a just starting out custom content creator, you inspire me so much! Your creations make the game worthwhile, it adds so much stuff that EA could've added with a single Expansion/Game pack!

For now, I saw a little problem with the genie outfit. It seem to be a full mesh and there are the same outfit for all categories, so my freed genie go to swim with her long skirt.


If you free the genie, you'll have to wait a bit (Something like 4/5 hours in-game) If you want to change her clothes.

I'll think about that. Since it's supposed to be base game compatible, I'll find another way to make the mod harder. Thanks for your suggestions anyway!

Archive is corrupt. More specifically, the GenieMod_Animations.package file will not extract. Everything else extracts just fine.

Sorry, I just need a little bit of help. Every time I rub the lamp I get the dialog in the top right corner, but the genie never appears, I waited, and waited. Nothing happens, what am I doing wrong?

Cool idea but the Genie isnt a stand alone character. It takes one of your existing Sims and transforms them into a genie. Then the Genie just becomes a member of your household you cant control and wont get out of the pool. I had to delete the character and remake the original in CAS...lol

This is a very cool mod I think the effort you put into this is amazing. Personally, I feel the potential risk of losing a wish to be too dramatic for me, but I still want to give this a go!

Hmm, I'm hesitant to use this in case something goes wrong, but I have a few questions.
1. Does the game spawn a new Genie out of scratch, or is the Genie chosen from some random, unplayed female Sim? I don't want to force a random townie into a life of servitude. Especially if they are already someone's friend.
2. If you freed the genie, is the lamp now useless on your save file? Can someone else, or even the same household, buy a new lamp and spawn a new, unfreed genie? Or is there only one genie per save file, and once it's freed, the lamp is useless?
