I have been able to turn into a zombie once from the genie lamp and i have tried to do it a couple more times and the person that got who came back to life ended up the as a totally okay sim. I just wanted now what has to happen in order to make the person a zombie? I do not have university installed just Open for Business, Pets, and Free time.
Look in your sims career rewards panel. Do they have the bone phone? It will be greyed out but it is a phone on a pedestal. You get it from the paranormal career track that came with Uni, but I think they rolled it into later Expansion packs. If you can get that open a cheat window by pressing control shift and C and type “unlockCareerRewards” Get the bone phone and call the grim reaper. He will ask who you want to bring back from the dead.
Pay him only a little money and he will get angry and bring them back as a zombie. If you pay him a lot they will come back normal.
If you can’t get the bone phone then you can only get zombies when the genie lamp backfires. The best way to do that is to fulfill a bunch of your sims fears and make sure their aspiration is in the red before making your wish. It is still just kind of random though.
