Simularity Update 096
I have some major mod updates for you today along with some brand-new mods! I’ve also been learning a lot about the new wants and fear system so that I can finally convert all of my traits’ whims into wants and add fears where appropriate. I may even cook up some new fears! Stay tuned for that and more!
First off, here is a highly requested Tuning Mod that I just finished. It is called Stop Messing with Phones and it does what it says! There are two flavors of this new mod, one mod stops ALL Sims from using their phones constantly while doing other tasks while the other flavor stops all EXCEPT teen Sims from constantly using their phones. Both flavors have the added feature of stopping your Sims from randomly changing the color of their phones no matter what age group they’re in.
The other new Tuning Mod is called Keep University Homework in Inventory and it also does just what it says it does. With this mod installed, your university student Sims will always autonomously put their homework back into their personal inventory after working on it. This was also made on request.
I have a major mod update for you today; both major for the mod and for me as a modder! I have updated the Adventurer Career with chance cards! Chance cards are those popups that happen randomly during various levels of a career and ask you to choose what to do next. I added three chance cards to the Adventurer Career, so far. I plan to add more as soon as I come up with some more ideas for them. I hope to add some chance cards to my other careers as well.
While I was at it, I also updated the Archaeology Custom Preference so that it should now trigger the “do you want to like this or not” popup when your Sim is working with artifacts on the Archaeology Table. It still also happens when excavating a dig site.
Last night, I finished updating my Agoraphobia Trait by fixing the whims so that they will actually show up now (got to do that with other traits too, apparently, so I’ll be updating the lot of them soonish), and I added support for fears! Now if your Sim has Agoraphobia, they can develop a “Fear of Crowded Places” and/or a “Fear of Being Judged”.
I finally have the chance cards written for my next career though I have yet to program them and then test the entire career before it’s ready for download. I’m updating my Bipolar Trait with custom wants and fears! I’m working on that at this very moment. It took a lot of trial and error, but I finally figured it out. I want to add more custom wants and fears to all of my traits where applicable. I also have more requests to work on and some things of my own I want to create/finish. Lots of goodies are in store for you all!
