Functional Spell Book
Ever since I got the Vampires Game Pack, I was always disappointed that the spell-book-esque stand was only for decoration. Then, after getting City Living, I noticed that there were functional podiums and thought, "Hey, it'd be cool if the stands from Vampires could work like that." And thus this creation was born.
This is just a little mod where I tune the decoration into a functional podium. As an added bonus, most of the text has been replaced from "Give Speech" and "Practice Speech" to "Recite Incantation" and "Practice Incantations." Because of the nature of this, this is only for cosmetics and story-telling, it doesn't actually cast spells or give any special buffs. I also edited the names for special mood-oriented speeches (ex. "Give Inspirational Speech" to "Recite Incantation of Inspiration").
The stand has the exact same mesh as the original stand with the exact same swatches.
If you want a version that actually functions with Realm of Magic, you can download that version here.
- If a sim is able to perform multiple speeches, clicking on a normal podium will bring up the pie menu redirect "Choose Incantation..." instead of "Give Speech..."
- For some reason, the "Practice Incantations" option is not targeted to the spell book, so, if the option is selected, the sim will not walk to the spell book and, instead, will just stand in place and perform the animation (I may end up just removing the "Practice Incantations" interaction altogether).
- There is a minor sound effect that emits when a sim taps on the podium. Unfortunately, this sound effect will still play every once in awhile when a sim is using the spell book.
If I end up fixing any of these issues, I will update this post.
02/04/18 UPDATE: IF A SIM HAS MULTIPLE SPEECHES THEY CAN PERFORM, THE PIE MENU WILL NOW SAY "Choose Incantation..."
07/13/18 UPDATE: ALL PROBLEMS WITH THE "Choose Incantation..." PIE MENU HAS BEEN FIXED; ADDED CUSTOM THUMBNAILS
09/07/19 UPDATE: ADDED FRENCH TRANSLATIONS COURTESY OF Maia_Game (Website).
03/21/19 UPDATE: FIXED ROUTING ISSUE WITH OPTIONS, DECIDED TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF OPTIONS TO JUST "Recite Incantations" SO PRACTICING 'MAGIC' DOESN'T BOOST FAME
