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?) - 20 Feedback Posts, 5 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:

The relevant patch level is that of the base game. You can find it out by hovering with the mouse over the base game icon in the launcher as in this screenshot.

@MichelleBerry: This mod only removes the mosaic for nudity. All other effects remain in place (unless you have a separate mod that removes them by other means, e.g. a texture override). If you don't have expansions, effects specific to things in the expansion won't matter to you, because you won't see them in any case. But quite a few things with effects have been added in the patch even for base game players like the floating hearts for dating or the memory smileys. You'll still see all of those effects.

If you want other effects removed, you can try my new "Create your own effects mod" tool, available here.

I hope this answers your question.

I have all the expansions (generations included) and none of the stuff packs. I haven't downloaded any no mosaic patches for previous expansions and I have the latest game patch. Do I have to download previous no mosaic patches or just this one?

@thotmes: You should only ever use one No Mosaic mod at a time and always the one that fits your patch level. In your case, if you are on the latest game patch, it is enough to download this one.

I downloaded this, and suddenly my launcher won't start up. I have NO mods except this one, and I have every expansion and patch. I have a MacBook Pro. I tried deleting the mod, but it still isn't working. Suggestions? Am I the only one this has happened to?

@JohnnyDeppLover: I don't really know anything about how different or similar mods work on a Mac. Did you set up the modding environment in order to use this mod? Maybe something went wrong there? When you removed the mod, did you undo everything you did to set up your game for mods?

@velocitygrass Thank you for replying so quickly! I restarted my computer and the launcher works again, so yay! As for how my modding is set up, I use this guide, http://www.techno360.in/install-mod...ms-3-ambitions/. The launcher works, but the mod still doesn't. My game is patched to 8.0, and yours says 1.22. Did I miss a patch? My game says there aren't any more.

The 1.22 refers to the base game patch version. You should be able to check that when hovering over the base game icon in your launcher.

As for the mod not working: I looked at the site and one thing I noticed was that the Resource.cfg that you can download there seems to have an uppercase "Packages" path, whereas the image has a lowercase "packages" subfolder. Google tells me paths on Macs are semi-case-sensitive, so it might be worth a shot to rename it to uppercase.

#91 Old 22nd Jun 2011 at 6:08 PM
Ok, I'll try that. Hovering over the base game doesn't seem to give me a patch number, just The Sims 3, World Adventures, Ambitions, etc. I'm really sorry I keep bugging you. I'm still not used to my new computer, and mods don't seem to like my Mac :/
Test Subject
#92 Old 23rd Jun 2011 at 10:55 PM
Ok, it turns out they're already uppercase. :/ Is there any other way to find the patch number that you know of? I'm really grateful of the help you've given me so far.

@JohnnyDeppLover: The foldername in your filesystem is also uppercase?

I'm not sure if it's the same for you, but there is a file called "skuversion.txt" in my The Sims 3/Game/Bin folder (i.e. the installation folder not where you put the mods). The first line in that file is "GameVersion = 1.22.9.011002" for me.

In any case, if your game says you're fully patched you'll probably have that patch.

Maybe you could simply go through the process again with these instructions. They specifically mention the Mac. For me the images on that page currently won't load, so you might have to go to the source code of that page to actually get the download link. Or maybe the site downtime has already started.
