Genie!
« on: March 11, 2012, 07:43:58 PM »
I dream of Genie!

I think the first thing I was amped to get was the genie. I could not wait to try it out and see where I could get with it.
There are many ways to get a genie. The easiest way is to get 30,000 lifetime points and buy one from the lifetime rewards. The more random ways that are not guaranteed would be exploring the catacombs, searching for treasure, or getting one thrown at you during a stage performance.
Once you get the lamp you clean it from your inventory and poof! There is your blue buddy ready to do your bidding...almost.

What you can wish for:
World Peace

Resurrect Sim

More Wishes- Gives you three more wishes.

Love


Long Life- Extends your life span
Large Family- Gives you a fertile moodlet.

Happiness-gives a +25 moodlet with no expiration - looks to be permanent

Free the Genie- Once you have become friends with the genie you will get the option to free it. You will get a totally of 3 opportunities to free the genie.
Free Genie opp 1: Freeze the lamp- All you have to do is click on the fridge and the option to freeze the lamp will be there. Your sims waits for a period of time then removes the lamp.
Opp 2: Heat the lamp- Click on the stove and it will say heat lamp. Your sim wait again. Almost as if it is cooking a meal.
Op3: Take the lamp underground- Just go to the graveyard, click on the catacombs, and it will show an option that says “take lamp underground”
Once you are done in the catacombs it will tell you to summon your genie to free it.

Fortune- Gives you 100,000 simoleans

Beauty-it says your Sim is more attractive even though they can't see any difference themselves - no moodlet or any visible effect.


My Genie had to rest for 1 sims day before it made another wish.

Once the genie is free it will no longer grant wishes. But it can still do some things that will make life easier.

Summon food- The genie can summon a perfect group serving of any meal that can be made in the sims.(except Ambrosia)

Banish sim- Exactly what it sounds like. The sims disappears, and I have not seen that sim since.

Magically Clean sim- You click on yourself or the sim you want clean and the genie will clean them.

Ensorcel Sim- The sim will be added to your family and under your control for 4 hours.

Make house spotless- If you click on the floor in your home the genie will clean the house...instantly.

Genie babies!!
Once the genie is free you can woohoo and make babies. Yes they are adorable blue bundles of joy.
I will edit this once I get more information.
Ty Callycat for adding!

Large family - the fertile moodlet doesn't guarantee results apparently as my Sim has yet to have more than a single baby at a time with it :)

Happiness - gives a +25 moodlet with no expiration - looks to be permanent.

The genie's summon food ability seems to give perfect servings every time and it looks like you can choose anything except Ambrosia. It includes pet foods too.

Thank you! I will add that. Everytime I wished for the beauty i I never seen a moodlet or anything. I thought it was broken or a bug.

Another interesting tidbit - apparently genies can't be edited in CAS.  I was hoping for a male genie, but got a female.  When I tried to use the edit in CAS cheat the option wouldn't appear when I shift-clicked my genie.

All my genies have been female so far.  I was beginning to think they didn't come in the male flavor...

No "supernatural" sim can be edit in CAS.

I got a female genie the first time I tried. She had an extended life span I was wondering if it were the same for everyone.

If that is possible. Remember that you can't crossbreed those special sims without using a mod. The farthest you can go is having a ghost version of any occult Sim. Though I don't know about the genie.
Thanks for this amazing topic.

My genie was a male named Jeffry Sikes. He had pudding face and was quite large. I gave him plastic surgery, for his face and I made him work out every few days. He had some great traits...couch potato, mooch, lucky, friendly and I forget the last one.

I had him marry a townie and with no gender wishes during pregnancy I let it default and they had a daughter. She just hit teen and I think she is very pretty. When she became a child she had all the options except Enscorl. I have to check and see if she got it as a teen, but perhaps not until Young Adult.

I have to snap a screenshoot of her because I had a lot of fun doing her hair/makeup and clothes as a teen. She is really sweet looking.

My female genie was also a bit chunky, but she had good proportions and was actually pretty despite the extra weight.  Unfortunately my game blew up shortly after I freed her and I'm going to have to go back to a pre-genie save.  Here's hoping I get a male this time.  I so want genie babies!

A genie is an occult, and a Sim can only have one occult status at a time.  So if it grows up with it's occult status you won't be able to make it a vampire.

I finally got my male genie and set him free after he granted my sim $200k.  They married and this is their daughter, Ginny.

I used the resurrect sim wish to bring a housemate ghost back to life, just like ambrosia.  Their age was reset back to the beginning of the life stage.

Nice picture Katluvr! Really cute.

I have found by the way, that asking for multiple wishes works at least 2 times in a row. But if you ask me, it isn't really handy as your sim has 3 remaining wishes after first time wishing for more, but after the second time wishing for more he has still 3 more wishes.
Don't know how this turns out by wishing for something else inbetween though. Would be worth testing.

So I have a question on genie genetics...

Is there any way to tell if my blueboo is going to have genie powers or if she is simply a blue-skinned normal sim?  At what age do genie powers start to show up?  I noticed Trentorio said that her teen genie-sim hybrid had some powers available as a teen, but do any genie options show up earlier?

Hm, good question. Not that I have the answer, but how old was your genie when he joined the household? Could be that age.

I got my genie from the lifetime reward and he was a YA when I set him free.  On normal lifespan settings it appears that the YA span of the genie is double that of a normal sim, although my nooboo has the standard 3 days before becoming a toddler.  I wonder if it is just the YA, A, and E stages that are longer for genies...   This is going to require more testing.  :)

Update:  I read on the EA forums that genie powers start to appear at the child stage.  Also, apparently you can breed genies of any color depending on the color of your sim.  I've also read that there is a 50% chance of having a genie baby but not sure if that is true or not.

I married my released genie to a vampire to try for crossbreeding, and out of the 2 sets of triplets, I've got 4 babies showing as vampires currently. The other two have the same purple motive bars that the genie mother has, leading me to believe they're just genies. Neither of the blueboos seem to be genies currently, but I'll see once they're old enough to manifest any potential genie powers.

When you free them they have the different color needs bar like vamps. My genie just had twins, a boy and a girl. The girl has the blue genie skin tone and the boy has a regular skin tone like his Mom but they both have the bluish colored needs bars. I think this will be interesting as they grow up. I'm going to guess they'll be able to do something different.

Well I think my blueboo is a genie.  Her needs bars are genie-colored.   ;D   Here she is as a toddler.





I know I'm biased but she's so cute!

Genies are occults, and a Sim can only have one occult status.  Thus, you'll never be able to have a vampire/genie.  They'll only ever be one or the other.
