Stages of Malice Ability


Practice voodoo

Voodoo can be practiced from level 3. You will find a voodoo doll with your computer or tablet for 950 Simoleons. With luck, you can catch one too!

To practice Voodoo, your Sim must be in possession of their doll and link it to a Sim you know.

Thanks to voodoo, you can provoke emotions in targeted Sims! You have 5 possible interactions so feel free to use them. However, like all magic, sometimes you miss your shot and it is you who suffer the wrath of voodoo!

Don't worry, you can have as many dolls as you want and link them to as many friends or foes!

When your Sim successfully binds a doll to a Sim, they feel like they are me.


Influence on emotions

You should know that you have certain possible interactions when you have certain emotions. When your Sim is under playful emotion, you have new possible interactions like:

  • Teasing in a malicious way
  • Make the eyes round
  • And many more

When you do malicious actions, you have a good chance that your Sim will go through the emotion embarrassed. And yes ! Your Sim may regret being so mean! The quickest way out of this state of mind is to give yourself words of encouragement with the mirror.
