PostSubject: Resurrection and the Book of Life Not Working   Sat Oct 04, 2014 12:41 pm

Posted a thread to ask about the Book of Life
Resurrection and the Book of Life Not Working
Per the Guide posted at SimsVIP How to Resurrect a Sim in The Sims 4
Sims can be brought back to life - or could before the patch - by following the guide and Summoning the person via the Book of Life.
As I posted in that thread:
My Level 10 Writer / Best Selling Author wrote the Book of Life and used “Capture Epic Saga…” of household member Cash Hairston (his brother-in-law) when Cash was an Elder. Cash died of old age. His wife Carpenter (still an adult) was so sad I decided to bring him back. Carpenter used the book to 'Summon' Cash and he appeared but as a ghost. Per the guide information "The Sim will return to life as if they never left" but this did not happen.
Key factors:

  • The book was written before the patch to add ghosts.
  • Cash died after the patch.
  • Both the author of the book (Garrett) and Cash's wife (Carpenter) tried the Summon command.
  • Both Garrett and Carpenter read the Epic Saga.
  • Cash did appear when summoned and was added to household per the request to join household.
  • Cash stayed a ghost until I finally had him Return to Netherworld. (Not a reversible action.)

I also noticed that before the patch the four urns on the lot had the names of the deceased family members. After the patch all but one read "R.I.P. _____" and the option to mourn was no longer there.

Alexis at SimsVIP did some researching and updated the
Guide: Death and Ghosts in The Sims 4

Resurrect via the Book of Life
The Book of Life’s functionality has been updated since the October 1st patch that added ghosts. Rather than resurrecting a Sim, the book will only summon the ghost from their grave.
Once summoned you will have to invite them into your household, and have the ghost “Restore” their own life from the book. SimGuruDaniel confirms this change is part of the challenge.
I was trying with everyone EXCEPT the ghost to resurrect them using the book. Head Desk
