Simularity Update 104
I’ve got some great goodies for you today with more coming up soon. I’ll write some hints for those upcoming new mods and updates later in this post. Let’s begin by talking about what’s new in the Mods section!
This is a mod I’ve been working on, off and on, for nearly a year now. I kept changing my mind about what I wanted to do and tweaking it even more. I think now, I can call it complete… that is unless you find that I need to fix something. LOL The new mod is the Improved Date Events Mod. This mod overhauls both the main date events for adults of all ages and the teen date events for just the teen Sims. I added several new goals, took out some annoying ones, added a few new venue types as date locations, and made it slightly harder to get all the points you need for a successful date. Give it a try and let me know what you think!
This mod update is a really, really cool one thanks to the wonderfully talented modder, icemunmun, who gave me permission to add support for her awesome Soap Maker mod to one of my custom traits. The trait I updated is the Crafter Trait. Now it supports the Soap Making Station from icemunmun by giving positive buffs when your Sim makes soap, and the trait increases the speed by which you learn the soap making skill. I also added new Wants to the trait that give Sims wants to create crafts of various types and to increase their many crafting skills. Oh, if you don’t have icemunmun’s Soap Making Station mod, you can find it here for free. It’s optional for my trait mod and not required.
I have more mods in the works including some that are nearly completed which means I’ll have some new stuff for your downloading delight soon, probably sometime next week. Want some hints? My next mod release will actually be a collection of small mods to improve what may very well be my favorite expansion pack (so far). I’m also working on some new lot traits, one of which is turning out to be a lot more complex to code than I first thought it would be. I’ll get it done eventually though! I have other ideas I can start working on once I get what’s currently in the pipeline finished. I also plan to update more of my previously released traits with new Wants.
I’m looking forward to the new expansion pack. The only downside it the huge game update that will come out a couple days before the pack. I have a bad feeling that it’s going to require a LOT of mods to need updating. I’m trying my best to prepare myself for the coming onslaught! Please send coffee as I will need it. LOL
