No Mosaic Patch 1.22 to 1.67 edited 01/16/2014

by velocitygrass Posted 5th Jun 2011 at 7:55 PM - Updated 28th Mar 2014 at 7:46 PM by velocitygrass : added note about patch 1.67
886 Comments / replies (Who?) - 13 Feedback Posts, 11 Thanks Posts
Patch 1.67 didn't modify the resource, so the 1.63 package still works.

If you'd like to remove other effects in addition to the mosaic, I have now released a tool to create your own no effects mod. It's available here. It's also useful if you don't have the latest patch version and can't find a No Mosaic for your version.

This mod removes the simcensorfx effect that pixelates nudity in the game. It doesn't require any of the expansion packs to work.

It's a simple edit of the resource 0xEA5118B0-0x0051185B-0xAE1859FADE0A9056 (Sims3Effects) taken from DeltaBuild0.package.

Install like any other package mod. (For more on that follow the link under Install instructions.) Make sure to pick the version fitting your base game patch level, no matter which expansions (if any) you have installed.

Only use one at a time (fitting to your base game patch level). Make sure to remove any existing no mosaic mods/the previous version, before adding the latest version.



Here's a comparison to an Outdoor Living Stuff No Mosaic. This new one preserves the new effects in Generations:

I'm a bit confused >_< So I have this one ---> http://linna.modthesims.info/download.php?t=392100 but I like most installed the new Generations EP. Should I get rid of that one and download yours?

If you have Generations, this NoMosaic will hide some new special effects too. For example the light shining out of the kids' treehouses or the flashlight when a sim is telling a ghoststory...and and and...

Better use this one.

**sigh** Apparently updating to Generations and installing No Mosaic = all my savefiles were corrupted. And I didn't have the common sense to back them up before installing the update. Oh well, time to draw up some new sims! They can mourn the untimely disappearance of those who came before them.

(PS - This works great on the new game I created ;-) )

@biancasimone: I just tested this with all three WA beds and I had no problems to get my sim to sleep, so it doesn't seem to be a general problem. It doesn't sound like something that CC like hair/clothes would cause. I'm not sure if maybe custom beds could override something. You could also check if your treasure box mod is up-to-date for the patch. Other than that I'm afraid I can't help you.

Regarding the corrupted savefiles: I read reports of this on the official forum (and I don't think it's related to this mod). I haven't opened an old save file yet and tend to start new games with every new EP, though there was one particular family with teenage kids that I stopped playing because of Generations. (I'm also quite compulsive about keeping backups. I use Twallan's Saver and save every single time as a new save game, so I have backups in increments of half an hour of gameplay, which I then delete after a while when it seem safe.) I'm glad it works on the new game

@WyrmKing: As Simfan2000 said, you should use the No Mosaic mod that fits the version (patch level) you're running. In particular for new EPs/SPs new effects for new objects will be introduced and those won't be part of the old No Mosaic package and thus those new effects will be missing.

@keg10609: Yes, it is. I always play with this couple (in different versions, though, with different traits and wishes).

I am glad to see that you are always ontop of things keeping your patch up to date with new versions, but i had just one question. Was just wondering why you made a new patch when the old one still worked?.........at least i havent noticed any bugs caused by it ? any way keep up the good work, thnx

To clarify: I did not post any of the previous No Mosaic mods available at MTS. I've used my own edits of the effects file for a while now and also updated for Generations and decided to share it when it didn't seem like the others would be updated (as quickly as there was demand for it).

@deucide: It's always best to use the No Mosaic mod that fits with your game version. If you have Generations and use an old No Mosaic mod, you will not have the booby trap effect or the tree house effects (just to name the two that I illustrated in my post) or any of the other new effects. Even if you do not have Generations and only patch 1.22, you will have effects missing, like the spinning hearts when sims go out on a date or the smileys for new memories. These missing effects aren't game breaking, but they can be nice to look at and/or useful information.

Regarding your corrupted save files , Bianca . In the corrupted saves is there a meta file there in the save folders or is it missing ? If the meta file is missing then all may not be lost regarding your saves

It was my favorite game, too It's okay, I should have backed up everything! I usually do but I just wasn't thinking this was a BIG update. Guess I'll start it from scratch and hope the kids are as cute as before ;-)

The file is actually there, but the first indication that it was corrupted was the sims not being able to sleep in beds. The second or third time I opened it, one of the sims was duplicated in everyone's relationship tab. The final time I opened it, only one sim was actually accessible in the family of five. I couldn't export any of the sims or anything, so I'd just call it a total loss. (

@biancasimone: Maybe you could try Twallan's error code mod to see if it fixes some corruptions. If you do have to start from scratch, I hope that the kids will be even cuter than before

@vel: I just checked and it downloaded without problems. There was another user that reported having to try several times until it worked. I would suggest you try again and it should work.

This mod should work like any other package mod. Maybe you can double-check that your mod environment is up to date by looking at the CC-guide linked under Install instructions.
