Default Summon A Sim From Library And Command Them
Hello there, I want to make a Jojo's Bizarre Adventure mod for the Sims 4.

To do so, I need to give all Sims with the Stand User trait I'm creating the ability to summon a random sim (their stand) from the game library or other place, instead of having the Stand be it's own Sim. I've thought about using the Familiars from RoM to do so, but I'd also want them to be able to be given interactions, such as to attack another Sim or Stand, using violence mods. Then the Stand can be withdrawn. Fighting moodlets would be transferred to the user based on who won or lost.

Is there any way to add a self-interaction that allows a "temporary Sim" to be summoned and withdrawn at will?

Have you looked at the duplicato spell?

No I have not! I would try that instead, but I believe it's someone else's mod so it's probably something I'd have to get permission to use if I want to share the mod with others. I'll need to see how it functions in game since I haven't used it yet on my Spellcaster sim.

Oh it's actually not a mod! That's just one of the spells you get from RoM. It lets you summon a clone of yourself and order them around - but I bet you could make it a clone of another sim?

Holy crap, I think that's my solution! I'm gonna give it a lookover.

Do you know what the tuning file is for summoning the cloned Sim? I need to make it so it's not limited to Spellcasters, and doesn't use wands or brooms. I will also need to be able to permanently change the cloned Sim's outfit to be the model in the picture above.

Thanks again for your help!

Np! I'm on vacation without my computer rn so I can't look up the tuning file, but if you search duplicato in S4S it'd probably come up? For getting rid of the wands, all you probably need to do is change the animations. Costuming I haven't done before but if it had to guess, duplicato probably starts a new situation and you could attach a uniform to the clone role state... but idk without looking at stuff

No problem! I'm not sure how far along you are with this now, but it looks like the tuning you'd need to duplicate and edit is the spells_self_clone and then change the bits you want to in outcome/basic_extras/create_sim. It looks like you can specify where you're getting your sim info from too if that's important for what you're trying to do!
