Simularity Update 067
Another week, another slew of updates and new stuff! Yay! I also managed to pre-order Cottage Living thanks to getting the payment from the ads on this website so to those of you who do not use adblockers, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and I shall repay you with mods for the new pack! To those who do use adblockers, why you wanna hurt me like that?? They’re just Google ads, nothing nefarious here! I do everything I can to not use any paywalls, I don’t want to be like those that do. I like that my Patreon is voluntary and not forced on people. It makes me feel so much better about it.
Oh speaking of the Patreon, all VIP Supporters who sign up for 3 months straight will get an exclusive 4″ sticker at no additional charge!! Cool, huh? I even sent off to get one of the stickers for myself. LOL Okay, now for the updates and new stuff!
Today I have THREE new interesting Tuning Mods for you. I had hoped to have a new Trait as well but I noticed an error in it while testing last night so I’ve got to fix that. I’ll release said trait once it’s fixed and ready. Promise! For the first mod that is ready, I have the Stop Culling Popups Mod. I’m not sure if this bugs anyone else as much as it does me but you know those popups that sometimes popup multiple times with the same exact message about a dead Sim about to “fade way”? Well, this mod stops those popups from popping up without messing up any of the game’s core code or mechanics. So, dead Sims will still be culled and the world will keep on turning, you just won’t be bothered about it.
Next up is the Improved Visitor Notification Mod which is an update and overhaul of a really old (if you can call something from 2019 really old) mod from another modder who has abandoned it. My new mod is not only updated for all latest patches and whatnot but it has a new feature, it tells you exactly who is knocking at the front door! I know the old mod had an icon showing the face of the person but there was no name. My mod shows the face plus the first and last name of the person. I need a face and name to know who the hell a person is because that’s how my brain just works so that’s what this mod does.
The third mod is another annoyance stopper mod; the No More Social Group Invites Mod. If you have the Get Together EP then you have probably been harassed by countless Sims both known and unknown to join their social group via text message. This mod stops those text messages once and for all. I happened to see another mod like this but there’s a difference, my mod actually works! Thoroughly tested over the course of five Sim weeks and not a single social group invite text so I’d say it’s working as intended.
New Custom Content
Only one new piece of Custom Content for you today but I’m working on much more to be released soon including my first set of hair recolors. 😀 I just need to finish painting the base texture of the first hair set then test then make all the color variations. The first set will be a male hair since the guys are so often overlooked in terms of content. I also have some more bridal gowns planned before the June wedding season ends. I need to hurry! Oh, the new cc is Cocktail Dresses Set 2 which is an even steamier set of summer cocktail dresses for a mesh by Sifix of TSR. There are nine color variations included and each dress has a unique texture rather being a simple recolor of a single texture. I also updated my Philtrum Skin Details with a new set of thumbnails for male Sims because I… overlooked them before.
New Community Lot
For those of you whom are fans of my Graveyard Lot Trait but are having trouble finding a graveyard lot to use with it, your troubles are over! I just put the finishing touches on my first Community Lot! The new lot is called Tranquil Graveyard and includes several empty plots for your soon-to-be deceased Sims (however that may come to pass). There’s a little multi-purpose building in the corner that could be a mortuary, a chapel, groundskeeper’s cabin, or whatever you need. I purposefully left it mostly empty for you to do with as you please. The lot is cc-free and requires only the Romantic Garden Stuff Pack for several elements. More community lots are coming up real soon.
The Monthly Mod Finds feature for the month of June 2021 is out now! There are some really cool mods in it too. I had another one in it but took it out last minute after it messed up my game as I wouldn’t want to risk a mod messing up your game too. I wouldn’t recommend anything to you I wasn’t 100% sure of and am using myself!
I have that aforementioned new trait almost completed, just need to work out one last bug, that I will probably be able to release later this week or next. I am also working on two brand new lot traits and new community lots to go with them so they’ll be ready to use right out of the box, so to speak. I have another piece of custom content almost ready to go, just need to finish up a few more details. I’ll be releasing another in my line of HQ Mod Fixes very, very soon and will finish work eventually on another, larger fix a little later. I am also working on my very first set of hair recolors, as I mentioned earlier, and I hope to have those finished sooner rather than later. I have many more ideas for custom content and mods, it’s just a matter of finding the time and energy.
That’s all for today. Thank you for viewing and happy Simming! Take care!
