Hmm, im not sure how to bring my sims wife back, i placed her in a room surrounded by BBQ's, lit them and watched her burn to death, but i got no oppurtunity to bring her back to life. Also it seems you cant set a baby on fire, i did the same thing to him, but he just cried alot and wet himself.
well, a few days after my sim's wife died, i got the special oportunity 2 get to the science lab,and voila. but that's the only time i tried it. so i'm not sure why it didn't work for you. it took a few days though. if it doesn't work for you...my condolances :P
There's also a Death plant in the game. "spirits love it". not sure about it's purpose though. Also, i forgot to mention, if you eat a Life Fruit you get younger by one day, but it's not that usefull cos it takes a while to grow the plant. And rcboothman, i didn't try killing the poor children, and i'm not gonna :P but it might be somthing like they made in Fallout 3, where you couldn't kill any annoying kids!
Well, if I replace my garden filled with Perfect Money Trees (which never run out, they just get higher quality), and replace it with Life Fruit Bushes, I think I'll be able to harvest enough to eat one a day. Is it always 1 day, or will a Perfect Life Fruit be more? Same for Ambrosia, does the quality translate into the number of days rejuvenated?
Also, always keep a flame fruit in your inventory. It'll give a small mood boost for being near a cozy fire. Imagine your Sim's pants catching on fire. Oops!
The plant is de deathplant and if you have it and the grimreaper is coming to get you you can give him the plant instead so he lets you live, as for ghost they can still have a family a male ghost can make a baby with a living sim it's kinda funny to see.
well i only ate just a few life fruits,of different qualities, but every time i got only 1 day younger. But I didn't try to eat one of bad quality and one of perfect quality to check the results, but i presume it's just 1 day. Not sure for ambrosia either:P One mor thing, i belive every lvl 10 Career gives your sim some kind of special ability, which you get to keep even if you change your career. For example my lvl 10 science(Mad Scientist) has the ability to "experiment" on all kinds of items, making them more visually appealing or making them dissapear. BUT i'm not at lvl 10 buisness career and i just don't see anything new, no ability, no nothing. maybe you peeps could enlighten me. :P I also tried lvl 10 military and lvl 10 juranlist but with the cheats so i'm not sure if it doesn't work cos i used cheats or because those other careers don't have any special "thingies", or maybe i just haven't found them yet :P
my wife was a ghost and i couldn't try for baby, so not sure, might work the other way :P about the death plant. when my dearest wife passed away she had a death plant in her inventory. it didn't help, her inventory was just transfered to my sim when she died. so this is gonna require some testing. but i killed her using the age transition cheat, so she died of old age. maybe it works with other kind of deaths.
fyi you can impregnate ghosts and as far as i know they dont die. they just get older and thats it but who wants old people right? a little hint for those of you who havent discovered it yet (i submitted it to ch but they are kinda slow): with testingcheatsenabled set to true, you can not only shift-click on your mailbox, but also on your sim. that way you can set his traits and trigger age transition. anyway have any of you discovered something else besides ghosts? like werewolfs or aliens? been staring my eyes out through the telescope but nothing ever happens...
