| Create a Sim or a Sim family and have them move into a lot (or just |
use an existing family). After you have moved them in a lot, make or
have a door to the outside to have the "Mystery Man" (an NPC) come
to your house. He will drop off a box. Have one of your Sims open
the MagiCo's Magical Starter Kit. A message will appear, describing
what it is. Now, 3 objects will appear (A Hole In the Ground,
The Start Here Spell Book, and a Truly Charming End Table with a
Spellbound Wand Charger). Also, there will be objects in the box
that you will have to add to your inventory (a Magic Wand, Butter,
Toadstools, Toad Sweat, and 35 MagiCoins). These objects will help
you start on you mission to become the greatest Wizard, or Witch in
the Sim world.

|Items from Dragons||100%|
| Tickling Dragons with get you Dragon Tears. Brushing them will get |
you Dragon Scales. Make sure they have a Dragon Toy (obtained from
Viki Vampress) and that they have enough garbage to eat. One way to
get trash is to have your Sims eat snacks and not throw them away.
Now, enable the move_objects on code an put the trash in the
Dragon's room. Make sure you do not let the Dragon out of its room.
Try making 2 rooms and put a Sim in one with everything they need.
They will live in solitude with the Dragon until you have all the
desired Dragon items. Make sure that the Dragon and Sim are trapped
or the Dragon will burn everything.
|Winning Magic duels||100%|
| After your Sim is worthy enough to face other Sim opponents to test |
their magic, have them go to Magic Town. Show off their skills by
challenging another Sim to a Magic duel. To do this (if you have not
edited the original Magic Town) is to go to Clowntastic Land or A
Spooktacular Spot, where there is a Diametric Dueling Device. Have
the Sim you want to battle, and click on it. The word "Duel" will
appear. Click on it and it will show all the names of people on the
lot for you to challenge. *** You can face the vendors. When you
choose the Sim that you want to battle, the dueling begins when they
arrive at their post. You get MagiCoins for defeating any Sim. You
get more coins the better you defeat them. The following is a list
of weaknesses and strengths of the magical elements (White
Lightning, Red Wave, Blue Tornado, Black Blizzard, Yellow
The same element against itself is a tie. Do not do this if you
want to get MagiCoins from your opponent.
White defeats Blue and Red
Red defeats Blue and Black
Blue defeats Yellow and Black
Black defeats White and Yellow
Yellow defeats White and Red
|Using your Magic wisely||100%|
| Do not get caught using your Magic at home around more than one |
other Sim visitor or the Mystery Man will appear and fine you for
exposing your magic. However, in Magic Town you do not have to worry
about this, because almost everyone uses it.
|Have the best Magic||100%|
| To get the best Magic and impress the entire Magic Town, have your |
Sim get full Logic. Logic is the key to having the best Magic.
