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.

Forgive me if this question is a bit dense, but I wanted to clarify for my own understanding:

Does this mean you can only use this object Downtown, or does it mean you can use it anywhere as long as Nightlife EP is installed?

Thanks!

The latter. The only thing you need is the EP installed.

Please don't remove this one, Numenor. I like this lite version and I have linked to it from my hacks/cheats page....so if you remove it, this link will be dead :-(

Don't worry: Winter has moved his to Variousimmers, so there's no reason for me to remove mine.

I've used this in Pleasantville, two universities and Downtown and it seems to work in all area. In fact, I've been using it exclusively since I downloaded it - no more "testingcheatsenabled".

Thanks, Numenor.

One request: Can anyone please associate it with a different object? I love the functionality but hate the asthetics. Something more fitting to display in your living room would be nice.

Once more I wish that I had the EPs. Eh... maybe when I get a computer I can actually fit them on...
'Cause I'm pretty curious about this "Grilled Cheese" aspiration too XD

OOoo! is this a cookie? or easteregg? hehe Cookie!
Not to be off topic, but do you think you could use this doll like you did the bunny bear?
In other words make it a toy for the kiddies to play with? That would be sooo! cute.
Thanks for ALL you great stuff.

It would be creepy! Especially when the kid would eat the doll's ear...
But it's a funny idea, nevertheless. Perhaps... perhaps... perhaps...!

I don't usually post unless I have something more useful than thank you. Saves bandwidth and all. But, I had to stop to say a special thank you for finding and providing this object. First, I like that this is just an object (as Maxi wrote) and Second, it solves a problem (not quite the right word, but best I could think of) where I would want to change my sims aspiration once, but was left stuck with a renuyu senso orb with 4 charges left. Since I have no way of putting the new object (renyu) on a community lot. This solves that little problem very nicely. I wanted you to know that I appreciate the 'gift'. It is special to me. Hey, I just noticed - I get a bonus, I can remove other hacks that I won't need anymore and lower the mb count in my downloads folder. Wow, Thanks Again, this is great.

I'm sorry, but this object is part of the Nightlife: I didn't "create" it, I've only made it visible. Therefore, it's impossible to have a base-game version of it.

There are other hacked objects and cheats, available for base-gamers, that perform most of those functions, though; just browse the download forums and you'll find them.

It might seem stupid, but I can't find Wintermuteai1's cube anywhere on Variousimmers. Do you have a direct link to it? I can't download rars or I'd get yours. Stupid rars...

Wintermuteai (as far as I know) is currently in the process of reorganizing and moving his creations here on MTS2; just give him the necessary time.

One thing that i want to know is, and forgive me if this has been asked already, but is this compatible with the InSIMenator? like, do the two cause any sort of problems with the other?
