The Sims 3 More Magic!


Finally, the More Magic set has landed on The Sims Store
Here are some in game pictures I have taken and some facts discovered!
Malleable Mimic Voodoo Doll
This Malleable Mimic voodoo doll, generously stuffed with the early spring coat of an organic Spanish moss fed llama, is the cutest and cuddliest way ever devised to harness powerful mystical forces! Reward your friends and family members with blessings and/or subjugate them to various curses and torments, and all with the simple prick of a pin! With the Malleable Mimic in your home, you do the voodoo!


Lord Vladimir's Magic Cauldron
Conjure, brew and imbibe your way to magical and mystical excitement with every turn of the ladle ‘round Lord Vladimir’s Magic Cauldron! Collect or conjure dozens of potion components, brew up a magical concoction, and then throw caution to the wind and take a big swig of MAGIC! Mmm…it’s delicious!

Soothsayer's Crystal Ball
Clear your mind, focus your attention and rest the gaze of your scrying eyes on THE FUTURE. In the smooth spherical surface of the Soothsayer’s Crystal Ball you will suddenly see; the future is crystal clear, your friends and family members are in awe of your predictive prowess, and your complexion has never looked better.
Please note that as I dont like the chair that comes with the crystal ball, I think the one I got from Dr Pepper Alice Stuff looks much cooler with the table and crystal ball.

Now, see why I told you I dont like this chair?



Besides those cool objects above, the More Magic set also includes some hairs and outfits (one for each gender) for both males and females.
Fortune Teller's Turban + Divine Future Fortune Teller's Outfit + Boots from The Sims 3 Pets

Fortune Teller's Charmed Hairstyle + Divine Future Fortune Teller Dress + Heels from The Sims 3 Late Night

The Dandy Lady
Blown Away Hairstyle
I love those outfits very much! Dont you love them too?



Let's move on to the next three magical stuff, shall we? 


 The Malleable Mimic Voodoo Doll
I love this most compared to the crystal ball and cauldron. 
To start this magic trick, first you must successfully bind the targeted sims to this doll. I failed once before and I think the reason was that my sims and the targeted sims are not close to each other enough. If the binding process is successful, the puppet will glow and there are some cool magical effect glowing under your sims!
Love ALL the magical effects!
Sometimes, the magic will backfire too. Your sims will be shocked by the doll (as in the picture)??? So beware when performing this trick as it can BURN your sims!

Some tricks you can perform with this doll:
(I) Cupid's Arrow
(II) Pins and Needles
(III) Hot Foot
(IV) Wet Pants
(V) Curse
(VI) Bless
(I) Cupid's Arrow --to better improve your targeted sims relationship with your sims.
Red glowing hearts come out from the targeted sims if the trick works!

(II) Pins and Needles - to torture the targeted sims. I know you enjoy seeing this! 
Dark Magiccccckkkk!!
(III) Hot Foot - to torture the targeted sims. It is funny to see your sims trying to burn the doll's feet with the ignitor.
As if cat on the hot bricks!
As if cat on the hot bricks!
(IV) Wet Pants - to torture the targeted sims and cause them to wet their pants!
It is always funny to see sims on the edge of peeing themselves. But, you know you will have mess to cleanup afterwards!
(V) Curse
The cursed sims will be shrouded with dark smokes/clouds
Not all the magic tricks are meant to torture the others. You can also use the doll to (VI) Bless others. The clover leaves and golden sparkles look just so pleasant right?


This is the case where your sims fails to bind the doll to the targeted sims!



She will be mad at your sims and show him the middle finger..*rubbing my eyes* I mean her index finger.


Moving on to the Soothsayer's Crystal Ball


As you can see from the above picture, you can tell your own fortune or tell bogus fortunes to other sims. Before you start to read the mystical crystal ball, you need to place at least one chair besides the table (two chairs ,if you want to help others to fortune telling). And  according to The Sims 3 Forum, there are some players experiencing difficulty in placing those chairs correctly next to the table. So try your luck until you get them work for you!

Just a bunch of pictures of my sims doing fortune telling for others.



Love their facial expression!
Something good is gonna happen?
You can predict your own future using this crystal ball. My sims was foretold that he was going to receive something good through his mail and it did happen that a few thousand simoleons decoration painting was sent to his mail!

Lastly, the Lord Vladimir's Magic Cauldron. 
You can create these potions with this magical pot:
(I) Sleeping potion 
(II)Vanity potion 
(III) Emotion potion
 You need to collect some stuff (I am not sure what are the specific things you need to prepare) before you can brew the potion.
According to the tips, it seems like you need Rainbow Bettle, Rainbow Trout or Rainbow Gem to create the strong powerful potion.
You need three identical ingredients to brew the potions??

If you are lazy to collect the ingredients in the wild (fishing or searching for the gem) or buy them off the grocery store, you can try to conjure the ingredients too. But the ingredients turn up in your pot is random. Also, each time your sims is trying to conjure an ingredients, it will deplete your sims energy. Beware of over exhausting your sims and pass out!


As I love my sims doing magical stunts, I like this set introduced by EA. I know they are others simmers who dont enjoy the magical parts in the game. They just feel the game needs to be more realistic, more magic-free. People have their own preferences right? One man's meat is another man's poison. So, respect choices made by other people and happy simming!





PS: Since, EA introduces this set and the magical spell book few months ago, does this mean that we are not getting an expansion pack for magic like we did in The Sims 2 Apartment Life?


&

Happy Chinese New Year to those who celebrate it! 
(have you downloaded the free stuff for dragon year and the coming valentine from the store?)

So is it fun. Do you like it. I was only tempted by the short hair and the voodoo doll. I am kinda glad i haven't got it yet. Have to say it looks like fun though and there are more interactions for our sims.
