This is the list of occult special opportunities. These opportunities are not specific, and they are generally related to various life states in The Sims 3. Like most other special opportunities, different opportunities have a different way to obtain.
|Bring a ghost's urn to the science lab and restore the ghost.|
|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."|
|Notes: This opportunity allows the players to move a non-playable ghost in to the household, making them selectable. Afterwards, the players are able to resurrect them by feeding them with Ambrosia.
Sims can take a non-household ghost's tombstone if they have 50 relationship or higher. After completing this opportunity, the Sim can restore any ghosts for §5,000, providing they have the urn in their inventory. Note that only the Sim who has completed this opportunity has this ability, not the entire household.
Sims that died from old age aren't strictly unrestorable. If the Sim dies from old age as a cause from age transition (such as birthday cake), they cannot be restored. However, Sims who are ghosts of old age from start (such as premade ghosts of old age or ghosts created from CAS) theoretically should be able to be restored.[confirmation needed] Pets who died of old age can be restored with no hassle.
