Mods like the SimTransformer can make a ghost playable with one click or even instantly make a regular Sim into a ghost.
Opportunity details Edit
- [These opportunities will be presented by other Sims you know or by wandering around your town. They are not related to specific skills or your job. Some have to be completed at specific locations in a specific time period, so once again be sure to check your status in your opportunities panel. These opportunities can also be a good way to meet new Sims and build relationships.]
- Location: Science lab
- The local science lab is conducting super secret experiments involving the Automagic Ghost-O-tron 1220-DR previously rumored to be "under construction." If you're interested in a glimpse of the after-life, bring the remains of a loved one to the lab for some "tests."
To get this opportunity, a Sim needs to be close to the person who died (friend or more), but the Sim does not need any logic skill.
A few days/moments after a death, the science lab will call a Sim and tell them to go to the lab with their urn, giving them the Oh My Ghost! opportunity.
Take the urn to the science lab. The Sim will return with their friend as a ghost. The urn now exists in the resurrected ghost's inventory, and cannot be removed from it.
Sometimes, ghosts may carry bonus items on them when resurrected, such as skill books or laptops - these can be sold and/or used just like any other items.
