The Sims 4: All Game Packs & Their Features
A buyer's guide to Game Packs for The Sims 4. Inclues all major features, and some side attractions you might like to know about. Should help players remember things they have that they don't use, and greatly improve odds you're happy with a pack when you've bought it. That's the goal, anyway...
The Sims 4 Realm of Magic: Curses
List of all Curse Types, Curse Effects and How to Cure Them
Brewing a Potion of Curse Cleansing is ONE way to remove curses. I suggest you have your Sim focus on Untameable magic if you want to cure curses easily. If you ensure you know all Untameable spells at Master rank, it'll be the first spell you learn from that school.
If your Sim fails to do certain activities enough, or just has some really bad luck, they can get a Curse. There are a total of nine unique curses in The Sims 4 Realm of Magic. While some are worse than others, in general Curses are to be avoided and will not wear off - ever - once they are applied to your Sim.
How to Remove Curses
Using the Experiment interaction with a Cauldron will have your Sim unlocking new potion recipes. You'll get a free sample when you do. Now, very carefully cast the Copypasto spell at low to no charge on that sample while your Sim is in a good mood, bam. No more need for Citrine, Angelfish, etc. in order to make a Potion of Curse Cleansing. Copy your copies, then forget the curse system even exists. Sigh.
Once a Curse is applied, it won't wear off. You'll need to do one of two things to get rid of it. Have your Sim cast Decursify (or have a family member/Sim you control remove the curse this way). Decursify is a Master-rank spell in the Untamed branch, so you can get it once you've hit that rank. There is also a Potion of Curse Cleansing that can be learned at level 3, but it requires you to have an Apple, Citrine (crystal), Angelfish, and Mandrake on hand. All of these are available in the Realm of Magic, so it's not too hard to come up with them. Of course, you can also buy potion of Curse Cleansing from the potion shop sometimes. Check back daily for new wares.
Cheats to Remove Curses
For storytelling purposes, it may be desirable to use Trait.Equip_Trait to put a curse onto a Sim, or maybe you don't have the cure and despise the curse you already have. You can remove curses from your Spellcaster with Traits.Remove_Trait. Here's a list of all the Curses your Sim can get:
- Curse of Awkward Embraces - Trait_Curses_TouchyFeely
- Curse of Infectious Laughter - Trait_Curses_InfectiousLaughter
- Curse of Repulsiveness - Trait_Curses_Repulsiveness
- Curse of Scrambled Spells - Trait_Curses_WildMagic
- Curse of The Night Wraith - Trait_Curses_NightStalker
- Curse of Uncleansable Stench - Trait_Curses_SweatyStench
- Curse of Uncontrollable Charge - Trait_Curses_FountainOfMagic
- Curse of Unwarranted Hostility - Trait_Curses_PunchableFace
- Hex of the Duelist - Trait_Curses_HexOfDuelist
Activities That Trigger Curses
|Activity||Can Lead to Curses|
|A Failure of Curse Removal Potion||Can give your Sim ANY curse.|
|Losing Duels||Hex of the Duelist, Curse of Unwarranted Hostility, Curse of Awkward Embraces.|
|Overcharge Failures||Curse of Uncontrollable Charge, Curse of the Night Wraith, Curse of Scrambled Spells|
|Potion Drinking Failure||Curse of Uncleansable Stench, Curse of Awkward Embraces|
|Potion Making Failure||Curse of Unwarranted Hostility, Curse of Repulsiveness, Curse of Uncleansable Stench|
|Reaching Max Charge||Curse of Uncontrollable Charge, Curse of Infectious Laughter|
|Spellcasting Failures||Curse of Uncontrollable Charge, Curse of Scrambled Spells|
These will be further updated with details - I wanted to get info on curses out there, in particular the removal cheats in case people want to take advantage of them.
|Curse Pic||Curse Name||Game Description||Effects|
|Curse of Awkward Embraces||You're just really into hugging and touching others now. It's too hard to resist. Awkward.|
|Curse of Infectious Laughter||Sometimes you just can't stop laughing; even in inappropriate situations and often times spread it to others.|
|Curse of Repulsiveness||What a horrifying visage! This will cause terror and disgust in all nearby Sims. Socializing will be much harder.|
|Curse of Scrambled Spells||You're losing control of your magic. Casting will sometimes have random powerful results.|
|Curse of the Night Wraith||A Spectral Stalker is haunting you. But where are they now?! Good luck trying to sleep.|
|Curse of Uncleansable Stench||You are eternally drenched in the smelliest of gym sweat constantly. Showering does nothing!|
|Curse of Uncontrollable Charge||You now draw too much Magical Energy. All gains are increased.|
|Curse of Unwarranted Hostility||For some reason everyone just wants to be mean to you and even start fights with you.|
|Hex of the Duelist||Be prepared to get into more duels! It's going to be a lot harder to win, and rewards won't be as good.|

So does anything happen if the spectral wraith catches you? My sim had the curse, but she also has a CC Immortal trait, so even if it kills you when it catches you it wouldn't have hurt her. She used her long sleepless night to experiment til she learned the Potion of Curse Cleansing.
Hi carl! Can u make a video featuring all these curses? It sound very interesting but i dont wanna risk my sim to die from overcharge
onlyabidoang on YouTube made a video about RoM, he shows some of the curses. A lot of them there's not much to see until its effect happens- for example, I had a sim get Curse of Unwarranted Hostility. Sims would fist fight her out of nowhere for no reason. Until someone attacks, there isn't a visual or anything. Thing is, I picked Nikita to check out RoM because she was a well established sim already, and single. One thing she had already done was finish the Athletic aspiration, so her attackers were in for a nasty surprise. That petite little blonde can take care of herself!
I don't know if it had anything to do with the curses or it was a random bug, but when I used the transportalate spell to get to the magical realm my sim turned to a tragic clown. When she changed her clothes it is gone though. I wonder if it is happened with others too.
Hey, please help me out - I have the Awkward Embraces curse and I’ve typed “Traits.Remove_Trait” countless times and it won’t go away. Testingcheats are on.
Something I thought I could add. Some curses might have interesting- or unintendedly-helpful effects. My Sim got the Scrambled Spells curse and any broken appliance in the game, when tried to Repairio on them, turned out to be the Copypasto spell.
So get an expensive TV, break it, then try to "repair" it over and over. Not sure if the scrambling is random, but if it isn't this might be an interesting way to get money.
The cheats don't even work I tried it many times
Just tested them again in my game and they are all working correctly. Not sure what you may be doing wrong as you don't go into detail in your comment.
I have a sim with the curse of unwarranted hostility from losing too many fights and the cheat to remove it isn’t working. I’ve tried using the cheat multiple times, turned the game off and back on and it still doesn’t work.
Exact cheat to use:
Copy and paste that into your cheats console after enabling 'testingcheats on'. This works for me so maybe you are making a typo?
Help! After I downloaded the Sims4 Realm of magic. And then did an update to the game the next day, now the top half of the screen glitches in and out. How do I stop it from doing that?
Try doing a game repair after taking out all your mods and cc. If you are using mods/cc then chances are some or all need updating, if you're not do a Game Repair as a first step: Select My Game Library in Origin. Right-click on the game tile. Select Repair Game.
You can also try a Factory Reset: How-To (click) instructions here.
When I try to remove the death by old age trait from my elder sim (Which I switched to a young adult with cas.fulleditmode on) it didn't work. I want Cinderella to meet her grandkids not in ghost form.can you help me. Also the skill cheat only works like 2 to 3 times in a row.
By changing the Sims age in CAS you've probably glitched out your Sim big time! Maybe try using a mod like MC Command Center and see if you can remove the hidden traits that will be left over on your sim from their previous age and curse etc. MC Command Center Link
I don't use MC Command Center myself so it's only a suggestion. But its definitely best to never change your Sims age in CAS!
