It’s the first news update of 2021… even though I keep typing 2020 instead. LOL I’ve got a lot of news for you today so please stick with me through the rambling and I promise you won’t be disappointed.
I made some various aesthetic updates to the site’s theme including making the text links main menu’s dropdown menus easier to read. That was really bothering me before and I don’t know why I didn’t fix it sooner. I finally fixed it so that my image previews show up on Twitter and the Simularity News Tumblr after I figured out what the problem was. Also, I joined Instagram! I’ve only added one post so far but you could go ahead and follow the account if you wish as I will be posting more to it soon. I plan on posting previews of mods, custom content, and other random Simstagram stuff. It just seemed like it might be a fun thing to do and, I mean, why not?
I updated the Green Thumb Trait to fix the whims not showing up, some icons not appearing correctly, added a new buff, and a few other little things.
Every single zip file of every mod file has been updated as of January 02, 2021. You don’t have to redownload everything right now. What did I do? I changed the text files in them. Now there’s just one file that’s an Installation Guide and another that tells you the mod’s version number, when it was last updated, and what packs it requires along with anything else you might absolutely need to know. I thought this might be helpful going forward to make sure you always have the latest version of my mods… as long as you keep the little text files. Just put them in a separate folder or something where you can keep track of them for easy reference.
This only kind of a new mod as I released a version of it last year but it needed a complete overhaul to get it up to date with the latest patch and I had to add a lot to it from the latest packs. The Increased Energy from Drinks tuning mod is virtually new. If you downloaded it before, delete all the old files as some are obsolete and some of the new files were renamed.
I’ve got a brand new personality trait for you! The new trait is the Techie Trait and I’ve been having a lot of fun playing with it in my own game. I hope you have fun with it too. This trait was another one that was at least partially, maybe a little more than I’d like, inspired by myself.
As a New Year’s treat, I’ll release a third mod. 😀 The third one is an update of a long abandoned mod that I consider an essential. It’s called Low Hygiene is Embarrassing. It changes the buff your Sim gets when their hygiene motive is low from uncomfortable to embarrassing as that makes more sense.
I’m currently finishing up a new Lot Trait that was requested via Twitter. I just want to add a few more finishing touches and then it will be ready for posting. I also have another Event ready to go that I’ll be posting later this week. I have a few more little Tuning Mods and fixes plus another set of Holiday Traditions almost ready for prime time that will all be posted in the coming days.
That’s all for now. See you again with more real soon. Take care out there!
