This is a set of two small texture replacer mods, which remove the silly cartoony effects when your sims fight or slap each other. This does not prevent the effects from actually being generated (so it shoudn't positively impact graphics performance) - it just makes the textures invisible. No more Tom & Jerry cartoony fights!
No Fight Effects:
Removes the smoke cloud, symbols, and lines which, by default, appear around sims in the "Fight!" interaction, obscuring the action. However, the animations for that interaction are a little weird when you can see them fully - the sims will intermittently sink into the ground or go weirdly pretzeled. This is not something I can fix.
No Slap Effects:
Removes the whirly circle and stars from around the slapped sims head during the "Slap" interaction.
These two mods can be downloaded and used separately - get one or both, your choice.
These mod simply replaces the images for these particular effects - making it basically the same kind of mod as a default replacement skintone. As such, there should be no issues with compatability with any patches, EPs, or SPs - they should work fine with everything.
All of my tiny texture replacers are available in one .package file, for your convenience. You may download either the single files, OR the combined file - not both!
