** If you don't have World Adventures, download the lite version. The lite version has different ingredients for some potions and doesn't require World Adventures (click spoiler):

Potion Settings:

If the testing cheats are enabled, you can Shift click potions to adjust their settings.
  • You can set the death type Sims will get after drinking the Ghost Elixir. (Note: if the potion is poured on a pet, this setting will be ignored).
  • You can set the skin tone alien Sims will get when they drink the Xenobiological Purifier.
  • You can set the alien DNA percentage Sims will get after drinking the Extraterrestrial Transfection.
  • You can also set whether Sims that drank the Extraterrestrial Transfection keep their body hair, hair color, hairstyle or eyebrows. (Note: these settings apply to all Extraterrestrial Transfection potions).

Recipe Books:

All these custom potions cannot be learned by researching alchemy in the alchemy station. To learn how to prepare them, your Sim must buy a recipe book from the bookstore.

Elixir Store:

I know some ingredients (e.g., Moon Cut Moonstone) are hard to find; therefore, I've added them to the Elixir Store's product range*. With this mod, you will be able to buy the following items at the Elixir Store:
  • Pomegranate (requires World Adventures)
  • Moon Cut Moonstone (requires Pets)
  • Star Cut Emerald (requires World Adventures)
  • Sun Cut Yellow Sapphire (requires Seasons)
  • Tungsten Carbide (requires Late Night)
Additionally, you can buy all the custom potions at the Elixir Store.

* This feature is not included in the lite version.

Potions & Pets:

This mod also adds a new interaction to the existing potions so they can be poured on adult and elder pets. The following potions can be poured on pets:

This is a scripting mod compiled against patch 1.55, but it still works with 1.57. It may not work with older patch versions. As it doesn't override game tunings, this mod won't conflict with other mods.

As this mod adds new potions to the skill journal, uninstalling is not as easy as removing the package from the Mods folder. In order to uninstall this mod, first open the command prompt and type "UninstallCustomAlchemyRecipes" without the quotes. Then exit the game and remove the package.

If you would like to help me localize this mod, download "," unzip it, open the text file with Notepad (or other text editor), translate the text between the <STR> tags, and send me your translation. These instructions written by Twallan may help you.

Additional Credits:
This mod wouldn't be possible without the tutorials, mods and/or help of Nona Mena, CmarNYC, and Consort. Thanks to the S3PE creators and developers.

I would also like to thank Demagog, Dennis6791, kingisen83, michal22, quir98, Scatty, simslover666, tearscar, thiagopepper, wheatberry, and xwertyq1 for their translations.
