Ghost Hunter Profession
The Sims 3 Ghost Hunter profession was introduced with The Sims 3 Ambitions expansion pack. For a Sim to join the profession, apply at the Science facility. Sims earn a weekly stipend and also earn money for completing jobs capturing ghosts and selling them to the Science center.
Sims start out in this field as a Tarot Card Reader and can reach the top as a Paranormal Expert. All of those working in this field work on Mon-Fir from 5PM-3AM.
Types of Ghosts/Spirits to Capture:
Lesser Spirits – this type of paranormal activity appears as different colors. White spirits are friendly, teal are kind, yellow are frightened, blue are lost, green are jealous, orange are wrathful, red are evil.
Poltergeists – this type of paranormal activity possesses random objects which cause them to move around. They are only slightly stronger than lesser spirits.
Ghosts – this type of paranormal activity is the most powerful and hardest to capture. Ghost hunters can however befriend the ghost and even convince them to move on.
Types of Hauntings:
Spirit Invasion – this type of haunting is rather easy and since you can capture the spirit with the Banshee Banisher, you can sell it to the Science lab for extra cash.
Poltergeist Invasion – this type of haunting is a little bit more tricky since you have to look for the furniture that the poltergeist is possessing to banish it.
Ghostly Presence – this type of haunting is unlocked at level 5 in this profession allowing your Sim to use the Spook-O-Meter to search for ghosts. Once the presence is found, simply capture it.
Angry Ghost Invasion – this type of haunting is being caused by an angry ghost running around causing chaos to the people living with it. Often the ghost hunter needs to talk to it to calm the ghost down before capturing it.
Community Investigation – this type of haunting is easy. For instance your Sim goes to the cemetery to investigate the mausoleum and since you can’t do anything in there, you just sit back and collect the cash.
