--I've been on MTS for a while, and this is my first upload, so be kind.

Here's alittle something I did for myself that I decided to share. This is an invisible clone of the Jetpack for The Sims 3: into the Future. I made this because I like the way you can fly around and travel to different locations, but I wanted to use it for a fairy and not have them look lame-o. See the pics.

This is how fairies should've been created in the first place, EA...

As you can see from the pics, the jetpack is gone. The special effects are still there, but I will work on blanking those out later. If anyone wants to beat me too it and get rid of the FX, then be my guest.

This is a clone and should not override the original. You should see the original object and the clone beside it, with a custom content indicator in the Buy Mode under Vehicles --> Misc.

Just add this little file to your (Documents --> Electronic Arts --> The Sims 3 --> Mods --> Packages) folder, and you should be set!

Have fun.

Fairies can't fly? How lame! Thanks for helping to address this in such a creative way!

Oh, awesome! I wanted the same thing but didn't know how to do it, so was just trying to pretend the jet pack wasn't there. Now I can have real flying fairies and superheroes without the pack!

This is brilliant!!! I have no words to express how glad I am to see this.
As you say, this is how fairies should've been created in the first place and I was thinking about that, but converting the jetpack didn't even occur to me.

This actually makes me WANT the into the future pack so my faeries can actually... you know, FLY!

well done for making this,

EA, what were you thinking?

I have downloaded this even though i don't have into the future installed, it will be good for faries and my sonic the hedgehog sim if i get the expantion pack.

Now if only there was a way to make child faries fly as I doubt the can use the jet pack

Oh well... I guess we will win one battle at a time.

(off topic, just done some tests, without the EP, the jet pack appears in buy mode but dosn't do anything. Hope to get the EP tomorrow)

I've been trying to do this myself unsuccessfully in order to make my Superman sim fly. Thank you.

Thanks for this mod. I was always annoyed with the fact that fairies couldn't actually fly anywhere. That just seemed stupid to me. Flight should be a fairy's preferred mode of transportation. This is very cool. I don't even mind the special effects. It's just a little more fairy magic.

I love it! My fairy is zipping around with the invisi-jetpack having a great time :D

I just wish that it was possible for them to not have to shrug the jetpacks (in general) on and off the whole time :/

EA, why can't fairies fly in the first place?

Thank you!

In my case it's Peter Pan I want to fly, with 'no visible support', so to speak - just his 'happy thoughts'. Thanks!

EDIT:

Hey! I just had to come back and say how pleased I am with this. I've just had Peter flying about all over the place, and he looks great. I created him ages ago and always wanted to figure out some way for him to fly without giving him fairy wings. This is perfect! And the special effects aren't a problem, they look kind of magical anyway. I just had him fly over to the school and toilet paper the principals office (he's a teen, by the way). Then he made a clean get away, zooming off into the night. Epic! Thank you again, SO much.

Default Tips To Make Jetpack Fully Invisible
Hello there, I want to share you a simply alternative method to make Jet Pack completely invisible (NO EFFECTS) WITHOUT download This mod (Please no offense, just sharing tip without to having a Double JetPack on Buycatalog and remove completely effects as shown on OP's pictures)
What u need for : http://modthesims.info/d/592332/the...pt-changer.html AND Nraas DEBUGENABLER

TIPS: 1) Go in BUYMODE, place the JetPack and Ctrl+Shift clic on JetPack
2) Click on "CopyScript" and "Ok"
3) Still in BUYMODE , look for a tiny and small DECOR ITEM like an Apple place the item and Ctrl+Shift click on it
4) Click on "Change script" and "Ok"
AND DONE ! Now in Live game, select the tiny item chosen and it will act like JetPack, it will go directly in your Sims body then no effect and it s invisible. Don t worry about invisibility, you still can eject tiny item by clicking on Sim Or zooming in body Sims to click it.
