Attempting to make custom occults
Hello simmers! I was wondering if anyone could help me make some custom occults. With as large as the story telling community is, I feel as though some more variety is needed in the sims. I was wondering if it would be at all possible to add/build upon pre-existing occult types. I was interested in the following:

* DEMIGODS
* NYMPHS/FAES
* ELVES
* WITCH-DOCTORS
* SIRENS
* GIANTS


I know that this has been attempted in the past or at least the question has been brought up on the forums, but from what I can tell, nobody has been successful . Looking around, several ideas have been thrown around as to go about this such as making a hidden trait , making it a skill or triggering the occult with an object , or making a custom buffer/moodlet. I used to use Nraas Hybrid mod, but I wanted to expand on this.

What do you guys think? Do you think this could be possible or am I being a little too ambitious? I could love to here your feedback!

Yea it's doable with Hidden trait system and custom skill. And you will have to create new interactions for powers. It's definitely possible. But creating an occult that can transform their occult like Werewolf or temporary stuff like zombie, tragic clown etc. will be a bit more difficult.

I have no idea how you will create giants.
Foe Elves. It's already possible to create Elf looking Sims. And you can create a trait for Elves. And then use Nraas MC to give them the Elf trait that you can create and their children will probably inherit the trait as well. You will have to then create Elf magic Interactions.
Not sure about Nymphs and Faes. Fairies already exist. But yea the same as above.
Demigods. Same way. Custom Trait, Custom Interaction.

Hello @PuddingFace! Thank you for your feedback!

I've had thoughts as to how this would work + what combinations of preexisting abilities I would add on to some of these said occults if you'd be open to hearing about them!

I'll start with elves since I feel as though that would be the easiest: For elves, I could see them being a cross between witches and fairies. They'd live longer, they would learn skills like Alchemy quicker than a human sim, they'd be able to pull pranks (Inner Beauty, Bloom, Chattering Teeth, and Hot Head), preform certain spells (Conversion Ritual, Sunlight Charm, and the Pestilence Curse).

I could also imagine them having a few unique abilities such as draining energy/magic from other sims, summoning sims to themselves, the ability to bring sims back from the dead (not as ghosts or zombies), ability to change the weather and cure illnesses and fleas Similar, but different!

For sirens, I could imagine you become a siren like how you become a normal mermaid. You can retrieve "mysterious kelp" from either another siren or by scuba diving and finding it at dive spots. When consumed, you will temporarily turn into a siren as a form of curse. After a few days, it will wear off. However, while you are a siren, your scuba diving skill would max out + you'd receive another skill which would be like the Charisma skill.

With this skill, you will be able to affect people and the environment by singing to them (like how you do in World Adventures). As a siren you could: swoon someone and immediately make them fall in love with you (and make them break up with their partner), cause people to become enemies and fight, trick people into giving you things from their inventory (like money or gems), trick people into cleaning or repairing objects on your lot, summon the Kraken or sharks, and lure people to sleep.

I'm hoping I can! It's definitely something I can see myself working on long term! My only worry is actually finishing and making it safe to use for all users to enjoy!
