What is the deal with Unicorn colors in the wild.
I use the cheat to add them to my household then trigger age transition to die. As I want a white unicorn! and can only be 1 wild one out there at a time...
there's been 6 grey ones then a black 1 then another grey one...still no white one!

They must be really rare?

I have yet to see a Black Unicorn, Lol. You do know you can change Unicorn's Coat Colours through the Edit Saddle option don't you? You could do that if you still don't get a White Unicorn.

I saw a black unicorn in Sunset Valley (up by the Alto's) right after I got Pets. Haven't seen one since though.

Yes, through the Edit in CAS cheat you can change their skin color anytime. I've seen one but mostly black ones. Yesterday I was playing my clone file, and my guy saw this one. I think it's a light brown one, not a pure white one though. Before I post the pic, I still haven't gotten a new card yet so be warned it's a very deformed uni lol.

Through Edit In CAS you can change a Sims Skin Tone. It's also useful to change the colourings as you can also then save the coat colouring/styles into CAS if you find say a really nice or breed a really nice looking coat.

Unicorns are occult sims.  Pretty sure you cannot bring an occult sim into CAS in an EA Standard game.

Very true, but they asked if you could change a sims skin color, so I wrote that.

But it's very true and doesn't work on vampires and other occult's!  ;D

Ah, I read their post as them wanting to change the skin color of the unicorn, not of a normal human.

In terms of the game coding, the word "sim" is used for all species (cat, horse, dog, little dog, and human).

My bad. :)

I was able to change my unicorn with the CAS cheat.  Of course, I'm not playing that file right now.

Hmm I always think of sim as a sim only. For example, I would never think of a cat or dog as a sim, they are pets in my opinion. Probably because I don't know about their coding and stuff lol. No problem!  ;D

That's good that you got it done.

I just got my white unicorn, but she has white needs bar and she can't interact with pets, sims and objects, except where she sleeps, food and drink. First, everything was ok, but now i have this bug. Maybe she had white need bar at the start aswell, i dunno, the point is the interaction or i could say the missing of the interaction (i can't click on my sim or my dog with the unicorn or even click on the ground, no command bubble popups) . Any idea how could i fix her? :( Please help me :( (Any other pets works and worked perfectly, only my beauty has this issue)
mmm, why is the unicorn's needs bars white? Is it because they are magical maybe?

I forget, did the Supernatural patch allow for creating unicorns from the start in CAS?

Drat.  That makes more work for a possible angle I was considering for a challenge I wanted to make.  Oh well.

Unicorns can be saved to CAS though and retain their full powers after it. I heard something that if you edit them at all though they lose them but I'm not sure on that one. I have a Unicorn by this method who can teleport and everything but it was from another game and had all the saddles set up and good traits already etc.

Yes, you can have your standard pet family ready for you waiting in the bin for when you need them.
Simply place them at your house and let the sims that came with it (as I assume pets alone can't be a family on its own without at least one adult sim) move to another place.
Than you can edit your pets in CAS if you like and off you go. :)

I know this post is almost dead but I just want to add a piece of info to it. Once you adopt a unicorn another one will start appearing in place of that one. So you can have numerous unicorns at one time.

So basically: do not kill your unicorn!!!!!!

Welcome to the forum.  There is an entire Unicorn thread.   I'm going to merge your thread with that one.  You should be able to find a strategy there or on Carl's Guide to Unicorns.

It helps if your Sim is an animal lover and/or equestrian. Then they can befriend the unicorn much more easily. I know Carl has a great guide as to how to find them, but I'll summarize. A unicorn can be found between 8pm to 5am. They have a 40% chance of appearing each night and I normally find them in the fishing areas and the waterfalls. I don't know for sure, but my guess is they have a higher chance of appearing in Appaloosa Plains, as that is the 'pets' town.
You'll know a unicorn is there when you see this rainbow, aurora cloud thing between 8pm-5am. Underneath the cloud, a black or white unicorn will be there. I've heard that black unicorns are 'evil' and white unicorns are 'good', but I don't really know. Your Sim should spend as much time as possible watching or interacting with the unicorn, but there is a small chance you  can adopt the unicorn on the first night. You just have to keep checking back each night for the unicorn.
If your Horse has the Friend of the Herd Lifetime Reward, Wild Horses will sometimes visit your lot and Unicorns can be among them.
Hope this helped!
Happy Simulating,
Foxx
