Picked upload! Maxis "Lost & Found" #10: Vincent's Sim Modder *UPD 22-SEPT*

Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
22 Sept 05 - UPDATE: As per request, now the object is available in community lots, too: you can find it in Misc/Misc section.

Credits to Wintermuteai1 for having been the first to discover this item (and to Maxis for having created it...).

Announcement: I can assure you that I know that most of these things can be done using the testingCheats... (BTW: why all the people call them "boolprop" - that just means "boolean property" - when the cheat has its own name? )

-----------------------------------------------
(Original post follows)


Browsing the game files, I've found this object, that seems quite interesting and useful: it's a "cheat" object; it has been created by Maxis for testing purpose, that lets you change many characteristics of your sims:

- Set the life stage of the sim
- Raise and lower motives (one by one or all at once)
- Change personality treats
- Gain or lose skill points
- Unlock and get all the career rewards
- Change aspiration at will (even the hidden "Grilled Cheese" aspiration :rofl
- Become vampire or cure vampireness
- Gain or loose influence points

The object looks like a child-size doll; you can find it in the Misc/Misc section of the catalog (cost 0).

IMPORTANT:
This object has been introduced with the Nightlife EP, and is supposed to work with the Nighlife only. I haven't tested it in other environments: it may work or may not!

INSTALLATION: just extract to your downloads; remove the package to uninstall.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

As said in the main post, you MUST have at least Nightlife in order to use this hacked object. I have tested with NL + OFB and it works.

In any other game configuration it won't work.

Do you have other Punto in your game? Older non-recolourable ones?

I was playing one of my families and my game was fine, I bought the baby and placed it on my lot and my game froze, I know that if you delete a hack while in use it could cause problems...but now any new or previous families after a few mins of playing my game freezes up on me.
(I have way over min. requirements and an excellent vid. card) so its not that just FYI!
Any suggestions Numenor?

Thanks & hope you can help!

I don't know other hacks, but this one can be safely deleted at any time. It contains only Maxis routines that are already in the game, so deleting the object won't hurt your game (you can even remove it directly from the downloads, while the game is off).

For the same reason, I'm frankly surprised that this object could freeze your game: are you sure you didn't install anything else, along with the Sim Modder?
Anyway, try removing the Sim Modder from the game and let me know.

Do you have the needed EP (Nightlife)?

Just as explained in the first post: extrack the package from the rar and put it in the Downloads. Remember that this object needs Nightlife to work.

I've seen this before. Have it on all my Sims lots as a handy lawn decoration. It's adorable actually, better than that stupid Tombstone of L&D.

Default OFB update
My hubby tried this with SERVOS: If you try to age a servo it turns them into an ANDROID! ITs so awesome...BUT if u age a servo below adult they loose thier face soon after. To make an android you have to age the servo to elder 1st (because servo is adult when they r completed) then age them back to adult.
Boom! a fleshy robot!! Has anyone else tried this?>
I luv it!

I was wondering...will there be anything like OFB and Pets stuff added on to this? I'm sure if you play around with this, you could add in things like:
Talent Badges > Sales > None, Bronze, Silver, Gold.
Also, maybe werewolf availabilities?

This is a test object created by Maxis specifically for Nightlife. OFB and Pets have their own cheat objects.
Look in the Downloads/Object Mods (I suggest to filter the downloads by EP required).

No, I'm sorry. This object was created by Maxis, and I just made it buyable; I can't change it's options.

The two main things to check are:

1) Be sure you have Nightlife installed
2) Double check that you have a file named "Numenor_VincentsSimModder.package" in your Downloads folder.
