Simularity Update 071
First, an important update on my status. Things are a little crazy at home right now. My dad has been in the hospital and they finally diagnosed him with bacterial meningitis. He’s at home but now he has to go back to the hospital each and every day for a treatment of very strong IV antibiotics. I’m worried sick about him but the doctors say the outlook is good. Still, I’m stressed out to the point of being physically ill. So… yeah, I’m slowing down a bit and trying to take a little better care of myself so that means a few less midnight marathon gaming sessions.
I won’t be able to do twice a week updates like I had been doing but I promise to try and update once a week at least. I will continue to work on new Sims mods and content. Working on this stuff does help me cope. I’m also trying to be an artist again so I’m now dividing my time between helping my Dad, working on Sims and working on my art. If you want to check out my art, I have a website for all that at Dream 9 Studios where I just posted two new pieces and I’ll soon post a third. Now, onto the Sims updates!
Brand New Mods!
I have three brand new mods all in the Other Mods section because they don’t quite fit anywhere else. The first two mods are my very first, but not the last, custom preference mods! They are Knitting Preference and Fabrication Preference. These mods will allow your Sims to like or dislike doing these activities! Although preferences are base game now, you need Eco Lifestyle for Fabrication and Nifty Knitting for knitting.
The other new mod is something completely different. I wanted to create something to help with the negative buffs of my mental illness mods. So, I created a new Psychotherapy Mod. What this mod does is allows your Sim to use their phone to book a psychotherapy session then they go to said session (via rabbit-hole interaction) and upon returning they have a new buff (one of five which are explained on the mod page). If you have one of my mental health traits, the negative buffs from those traits will temporarily disappear! The mod can still be used without my traits and your Sim will still get one of the five buffs from having a session.
Since my last Simularity Update, the Improved Visitor Notifications Mod has been updated with both French and Russian translations. The Starlight Accolades Notification Mod has been updated with a French translation. More updates coming soon!
As always, you can check the Mod Updates page for whenever mods are updated even between these Simularity news update posts.
That’s all for now. Take care and happy Simming! Also, hug your loved ones an extra time tonight/today. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did later. I’m so happy that Dad is home now as I was starting to fear… Now I hug him an extra time every time we cross paths. 😀
