Hi I'm Skydome
. This is the first mod I created. I've been using this site to download mods for over 3 years now!! 2 weeks ago I finally decided to make a mod of my own and this is the result
I hope you enjoy using this mod.
How the game originally handled that
Originally the vampire sim would get the heatingup moodlet after spending 60 minutes outside. The heating up moodlet would then last for 3 hours.This mod changes that depending on the flavor you download. The game would also kill your vampires when their thirst bar reches 0 this mod prevents the thirstbar from reaching 0.
What does this mod do?
Good question. This mod makes vampires more real to the lore. The lore I know that is.
1)This mod makes Vampires die from sunlight. The heating up moodlet will now appear instantly. It now lasts for only 30 sim minutes(Tunable).
Once the moodlet times up Sims will get the OnFire moodlet and die when it times out.
2)This mod prevents Vampires from dying due to low thirst. Even if you use testingcheats to bring it down or have your witch cast thirst curse. Tremerion also had a mod which did that but the witch thirst curse and testingcheats could still kill them. Mine prevents that from happening as well.
3)Now I thought if my witch can no longer protect herself/himself from vampires so I had to do something for them. So I made it so that sunlight charm will make them pass out
Flavours for this mod
1)No Thirst:-Only has the no thirst death feature. Sun still acts normally.
2)Default:-Uses the original timer and delay timer for heating up and toomuchsun moodlet. Thirst death immunity is added to this one.Caution:
this will make your vampires pass out for 2 days if they get hit by sunlight charm.
3)Flavor1:-same as default but toomuchsun will last for 30 minutes as opposed to 2 days. So your vampire will also passout for 30 minutes and not 2 days.
4)Flavor2:-Heating up moodlet appears instantly when you're outside and lasts for 60 minutes. TooMuchSun lasts for 30 minutes like in Flavor 1. Includes no thirst.
5)Flavor3:-same as flavor2 but heatingup moodlet lasts for 30 minutes.
6)Flavor4:-same as flavor3 but heatingup moodlet lasts for 10 minutes. Caution:-Timer this low might make the town vampires drop like flies cause they're stupid and won't stay inside.
One thing I'd like to tell the people is that flavor 1 and flavor 2 are the most recommended. One thing this mod does is make vampires pass out when they get toomuchsun unless you want this to happen(which I can see why you would; makes for a good eternal sleep story) flavor 1 is same as default except toomuchsun lasts for 30 minutes so you don't have to worry about 2 day sleep.
This mod is part script part tuning. It tunes the Buffs.xml, BuffTooMuchSun.xml and motives.xml located in gameplaydata.package. Any other mod that does the same will conflict with it.
Additional features I'm considering adding for the future if I can.
1)Let Vampires read mind and use make sim think about me during daytime.
2)Let Vampires read mind and use make sim think about me without cooldown.
3)Adding a compel interaction like compel to drink, compel to be friend etc.
I don't know when I'll add these since I'm new at modding and don't know exactly how to do it right away. Plus I have school and exams.
(Please note: this mod works fine
with Sauzer's Vampire powers and Einrei's Vampire mod as far as I know)
This mod will conflict with other mods that change the Buffs, BuffTooMuchSun and motives xml file.
It will conflict with some of Shoni's Vampire overhaul flavours and the full version but most of it should work fine.
It will probably have a problem with with Vampire Tweaker but not sure haven't tested.
Buzzler, NonaMena for their tutorials.
Douglasveiga and Ghost sdoj for helping me out in the help forum.
Tremerion for his Vampire mood mod which inspired me to make my own mod.
All other modders whose mods I downloaded over the years which gave me the confidence to make my own.
