There are two ways to create an occult Sim, either you can create a brand new one in the CAS, or you can turn a pre-existing sim into one, either by learning or cheating.

Create a Sim

As with all occult simulations, you will be able to create a spellcaster simulation by clicking on the occult option, there you will see the choice to create an occult simulation. These spellcasters will default to no learned spells and will start out as a sidekick sim.

learn magic

If you want to teach magic to your normal and ordinary sim, you will want your Sim to go to the magic realm. Once there, find a mentor or teacher and ask to learn magic. The game will ask you to follow a few instructions, but once you’ve done that, your sim will have earned the spark of magic to start learning.


If you don’t want to jump through the various hoops to turn your Sim into a spellcaster, then here are the various cheats you can use instead:

Sims 4 Spells

The Sims 4 spells are separated into three subgenres, each requiring your sim to be at a different rank in order to learn and master. There are practical spells that focus on increasing your needs as well as helping with your daily activities.

Mischief spells focus more on casting spells on others which can have a number of different effects. Then there are the wild spells which tend to be quite hostile towards others, but can also be very beneficial to yourself or even defy nature.
