No Attacks by…Sharks and the Kraken!

Welcome to Isla Paradiso, where the sun shines, the sea is blue and OMG, is that a shark? Or was that the Kraken???
Ah, relax. No more will your sims need to fear the sea creatures that lurk beneath those deceptively calm waves.
So with Island Paradise came two new panics for us simmers: A possible attack by sharks when we’re scuba diving, or having our boats destroyed by the Kraken.
So, I created a couple of mods to eliminate these fears.

The NoSharkAttack package removes all chance of the sharks attacking your sims. So you’ll see them around and you can watch them, but they will not hurt you.
The NoKrakenAttack package stops the Kraken from destroying your boats. You’ll still see the Kraken swim by, but it will never attack you.
The NoKraken package was a request by Titosims to stop the Kraken from swimming by altogether. So, hopefully, you should never see the Kraken again.

The two Kraken mods WILL conflict, since they edit the same file. Use only one. But the Kraken mod can be used with the shark mod.

These were made with patch 1.55 and require Island Paradise. They also work with patch 1.57. They won’t break your game if you have them installed without the EP, but it would be pretty pointless.

No Death by…Vending Machines and Murphy Beds!

So, you’ve probably just installed University Life and may be having a small panic attack at the idea of your precious Sims dying because the vending machine crushed them, or their brand new Murphy Bed fell on them.

Well, don’t panic any more!

Here are two little tuning mods that remove all chances of your Sims dying when they Shake or Slam the Vending Machine (so you can still get freebie items, but without the chance of Grimmy creeping up on you) and stops the Murphy bed from falling on them altogether.

Both mods require University Life. They won’t break your game if you don’t have it installed, but it’d be a pretty pointless exercise.

Made with Patch 1.50 and works on Patch 1.55-1.63.

More Books in the Bookshop!

We all know that travelling has been a major pain since Generations and some people still can’t travel to Egypt, China or France. Buying the books in the foreign destinations was one of my favourite things to do whenever my Sims went abroad but haven’t been able to do so for a long time.
Well now, I can!

This tuning mod allows you to buy:

  • The Photography Skill book from Al Simhara
  • The Martial Arts Skill book from Shang Simla
  • All the recipe books from all three destinations
  • All the general books from all three destinations
  • All the past and future books from the Time Machine in Ambitions
They now all show up in the respective categories in the bookstore in all the home worlds!
Now, this mod does require World Adventures and Ambitions. I honestly have no idea what might happen if you install this mod with, say, just WA installed and not Ambitions. If you want to try, go ahead. But I used coding from both EPs so I assume it will require both to work properly.
This mod was made with Patch 1.38, works with patches 1.38-1.57 but I don’t think it’ll work with any lower patches. It edits the Books XML and will conflict with any mod that does the same.
As always, let me know if you encounter a problem. My Mum tested this on her game so I know it works, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be problems.
Have fun and Happy Simming!

MORE tuning mods

And I’m back, with some more nifty little mods to iron out some minor irritations.

No More Sparkly Vampires! *Updated for Patch 1.63*

With Supernatural, you have a couple of ways to stop your Vampires from burning in the sun. However, this means our Vamps now have to sparkle like Edward Cullen. Vampires just don’t look scary when they’re sparkling. So I’ve got a mod that edits the Sparkly and PermaSparkly moodlets, thus rendering our Vampires sparkle-free!
This mod requires Supernatural to work. It won’t break your game if you don’t have the EP installed, but it will be a waste of space. It’s made with patch 1.38 and edits the Buffs XML and will conflict with any mod that also edits this file.

Vampires Can Walk In The Sun! *Updated for Patch 1.63*

This mod will stop all your vampires from Heating Up and burning when out in the sun for too long. This is especially aimed at those of you with Late Night but not Supernatural. It edits the HeatingUp and TooMuchSun moodlets, allowing your Vampires hours of sunshine fun!
This mod requires either Late Night or Supernatural to work. It won’t break your game if you don’t have either EP installed, but it will be a waste of space. You don’t have to have both, but it will work with both. It was built with patch 1.38 and edits the Buffs XML and will conflict with any mod that also edits this file.

No More Full Moon Lunacy! *Updated for Patch 1.63*

Every time a Full Moon arrives, there’s a chance your Sim may get the Lunacy moodlet and start doing random things like hugging people, slapping their girlfriend and, more often, freaking out every Sim-hour or so, just because the moon happens to be full. When your Sim is trying to sleep, having them wake up every hour to Freak Out gets really irritating. So I did the only thing I could think of without stopping the lunar cycle: edited the Lunacy moodlet. So that’s what this mod does. It stops your sims getting the Lunacy moodlet and lets them be normal at the full moon.
This mod requires Supernatural to work. It won’t break your game if you don’t have the EP installed, but it will be a waste of space. It was made with patch 1.38 and edits the Buffs XML and will conflict with any mod that also edits this file.

THESE MODS WILL CONFLICT WITH EACH OTHER! Since they edit the same file.
There’s always a chance someone will want a combination of the mods I have created. So I’ve accounted for you guys too 😀

NO MORE SPARKLES + NO LUNACY
DAYWALKING + NO MORE LUNACY
DAYWALKING + NO MORE SPARKLES

As always, let me know if you have any problems 🙂
Happy Simming!

Zombies Begone!

No Zombies

Yes, you did read that right. I’ve got a mod that successfully stops ALL Zombies spawning at the full moon.
This edits the Lunar Cycle file in Gameplay data and WILL conflict with any mod that does the same (highly unlikely, as it’s mostly Zombie information in there).
To use this mod and successfully have NO Zombies eating your plants or attacking your sims (or lurking outside the front door), in your existing games, simply:
1. type testingcheatsenabled true into the cheat box, Shift-Click on the mailbox and choose Supernatural Population Control and select ZOMBIES.
2. PLAY!
It’s honestly that easy. Step one *should* remove any existing Zombies from the game. I used this at the very beginning of a brand new game, so any reports as to what happens in existing games will be appreciated (I can’t do anything about that, but it’s good to know). Then my mod stops any Sims spawning at the full moon 🙂
Obviously, this mod requires Supernatural and will be completely pointless if you don’t have that EP. Made with patch 1.38, works on patches 1.38-1.57 and should work will all EP and SP combinations 🙂
