Hey, I've a problem with the voodoo doll the Witch Doctor gives if you repair the objects. I've done this mission several times with several sims and it has always worked perfectly, I've always received a voodoo doll but for a few times I can't receive the voodoo doll anymore. I explain :
I go to the secret lot, I talk to the Witch Doctor, I repair then all the stuff but at the same time the Witch Doctor goes to sleep in the hammock and I can't talk to him anymore... I've tried several solutions but he doesn't wake up so I can't receive my woodoo doll and I wait hours for nothing... :help:
Did anybody have the same problem ? How to fix it ?

Did you try max motives?

Does he know you? You break into his house, start repairing his stuff and then you won't leave and it's late. So he got fed up and went to sleep. Don't think it's broken though.

I don't see why my post is marked as being funny, that is what I would try since sims normally would wake up if the energy bar is full.

I believe him sleeping can be part of it. I guess if max motives doesn't work you wait it out.

Sorry Jo that was me, I don't use maxmotives at all, and thought that you was joking. As far as I know the scene is a puzzle, like the Pirate Ship, where you have to socialise the ghost to learn the sea shanty song. The wiki says something about making sure that the doll is accepted before the man goes to sleep. http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Voodoo_doll I forget that everyone plays differently, I don't use maxmotives, but I could probably just buy it as I have a mod for that.

I don't use maxmotives normally either, but if something was glitched and needed it I certainly would. I haven't been to get the doll for years though so my memory of it was hazy.

some other things to try::
-send sim/sims to another lot then send them back.
-with the testingcheatsenabled cheat being enabled, do Force Error on various characters.
-use various hacks/mods to temporarily make the Witch Doctor selectable; while selectable, have him give the doll.

if those do not work, SimPE can add various objects to any character.
easiest way would be to find a character that has the object; copy it from that character's Memory list then paste it to the Memory list of your sim.

Do not make the WD selectable. http://sims.wikia.com/wiki/Witch_Doctor

Far easier and safer to use a buyable voodoo doll no need to mess around in simpe. http://modthesims.info/download.php?t=248431

the Witch Doctor in my game goes to sleep often before I finish fixing his stuff. You just gotta wait it out I guess. I do get the doll anyways

Typical Witch Doctor behavior is that he goes to sleep on a hammock, right after you greet him. Then, as he's sleeping, you repair all the things in the hut: kitchen appliances, TV, and plumbing. After all that, he should wake up on his own and give you the voodoo doll as a sign of gratitude. If something's not working, try solving the puzzle without any CC installed.
