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
753 Comments / replies (Who?) - 15 Feedback Posts, 10 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 think I may have fixed it! I tried starting up the launcher with Ambitions instead of Generations, and it said it had an update ready. I'm going through all of them now, I'll get back to you if it works. Wish me luck! *crosses fingers* Pleaseworkpleaseworkpleaseworkpleasework...

Thank you for again providing a mod to get rid of the eyesore that is the mosaic. I had some trouble getting the file downloaded with Mozilla firefox, but trying again with Explorer allowed me to get it un-corrupted. Thanks again for sharing this.

Did anyone raised the question of losing that important thing between legs after moded? Does that means I need a nude skin replacement?

@MichelleBerry: Have you patched your base game to the latest patch version? If so, the No Mosaic 1.24 will work for you. Installing WA won't matter because the base game always includes the effects for all expansions and the latest No Mosaic will make sure that you have all existing effects for all expansions and stuff packs (except the mosaic obviously . So keep using the No Mosaic and you should be able to see all WA effects.

Having some difficulty. Downloaded the the file and extracted it to my Packages folder under Mods. Deleted caches i was instructed to delete. Even downloaded that d3dxsomething file and extracted that to a Bin. The mosaic is still appearing. Any advice?

@HeyoAsian: I'm afraid not. This is a really straightforward mod. There's nothing different to do than for any other package mod. Do other mods work for you?

Some mods do work where as others dont. But those mods are just for certain hair and accessories. Ive been unzipping them with WinRAR and recently downloaded 7zip to see if that was the problem. I may just be doing something wrong. Here are the exact steps I take:

1. Download
2. Open with WinRAR (or 7-ZIP File Manager)
3. Open file (3books icon) from the Download center (Firefox's little box that pops up when you download stuff)
4. Right click on the second item on the list (First being a folder titled "...") And extract it to my Sims3/Mods/Packages folder.

@HeyoAsian: For me the steps are download, open the zip from "Downloads" window in Firefox, which opens the zip in a normal Windows Explorer, where it contains the file "velocitygrass_nomosaic_1_24.package" and nothing else, which is just over 1 MB large.

I have my own Resource.cfg file, so I don't have a Packages folder, but if that is where you keep other .package files that work, then this one should work too.

The only reason I could think of why it doesn't work is if there is a conflict with another mod that modifies the same resource. Do you have other mods that do something with effects?

@efowl: Only use one! If you've updated to the latest patch use 1.24. If you still are on patch level 1.22 use the Generations one.
