Anyone who has played Generations has probably ran into the Romantic Reputation system by now. That girl your Sim danced with at Prom, way before he met his current partner, remember her? Well your current partner is going to accuse you of cheating on her, and then tank your relationship by -90.

Obviously the system is broken, so here is an early attempt to correct the problem.

Changelog -
  • 03/03/2013 - FINALLY updated to make this mod fully seasons compatible.
  • 3/7/2011 - V2.1 released. Turns out that Married Sim's still get accused by their "other Sim" on a regular basis, so I have fixed that. Also eased up a little, as V2 was a bit too "free and easy" on cheating, and Sim's were getting away with murder (figuratively) when not married. Hopefully this new version will strike a nice balance. See notes below for changes.
  • 21/6/2011 - This Mod is now incompatible with EGC's Jealousy settings when set to "Level 0" (no jealousy at all) as this performs the same function as "KillAll" Level 1, (TS2 style jealousy) seems to be compatible with RRRv2. (haven't checked the others)
  • 19/6/2011 RRR V2 released. While the first version merely reduces the problem, or completely kills it, V2 is my first attempt to actually fix the system. Personally, I like the idea of a Romantic Rep system, I just disagree with the implementation. V2 is now declared stable, as I have had no negative feedback on it. All feedback is appreciated.

Notes: (For an indepth analysis of how the game "scores" cheating, see here: http://www.modthesims.info/showpost...85&postcount=70 )
V2.1 (only changes from V2 are listed)
  • Chances of being accused for Level 2 and Level 3 has now been changed to 20% across the board. Level 1 romances are still at 0. Should stop married Sims from getting RepRaped as soon as they go to visit the Sim they are cheating on their spouses with, as well as making it a little more difficult to keep extra-marital romances a secret from the spouse. (Only when actually cheating though, romances that are not being pursued are unaffected) (defaults: Level 2 15% (v2 10%) Level 3 40%).
  • Visibility radius reset to default. Nobody was seeing cheating, so you were pretty much getting away scot free.
  • Threshold for Level 2 reset to default. Pretty much same reason as above, I set it too high, Level 2 was never triggering, and so you were getting away scot free all the time.
  • All other functions not changed (including faster visibility decay time).
  • In order to be accused of cheating, the "other romance" must now be Level 2, hopefully solving the "old flame that you never cancelled" problem.
  • The threshold for obtaining a "Level 2" romance has been doubled, meaning that hopefully the system won't kick in for silly things.
  • The "visibility radius" has been halved, meaning that not every Sim and his wife will notice your "naughtiness"
  • Invitations to each others house, and placing phone calls to your "other Sim" will now have a negligible effect on the visibility
  • The visibility of the relationship will now begin to decay after just 1 hour of no contact, rather than 24.
  • The decay rate is now 8x the default, meaning that after 24 hours of no contact, chances are the relationship will no longer be Level 2.
  • The following traits in your Sims partner increase the chance of being accused by 5% (default 10%): FamilyOriented,Good, Childish,CommitmentIssues,HotHeaded,Neurotic
  • Conversely these traits decrease the chance of being accused by 5%: Inappropriate,Flirty,Coward,HopelessRomantic,Carefree,Shy
  • As long as your relationship with your current partner is at least good enough to be "Friends" if you weren't in a relationship, the chances of being accused are halved. (Default "Best Friends" -10% chance) as well as reducing the "Betrayed" Buff's timeout by 6 hours.
  • Sims no longer have a 300% multiplier applied to the chance of telling your partner about cheating.
  • If your Sim is "Eternally Faithful" the chance of being accused is 10% regardless of level (default 15).
  • If caught cheating, your relationship only decreases by 25 not 90.
  • To stop the breakup, you must repair the relationship by 10 (default 25)
  • [new] Above Reproach is actually useful now. It completely eliminates the chance of being accused. (Default -20% chance)

What This Mod Does
It depends which flavour you install. The most basic function of the "50, 25, 10" packages is to reduce the "tanking" effect from -90 to -50, -25, or -10 depending on which flavour you install. The other flavour (KillAll) completely kills the system, so that your Sim will never be accused of cheating. V2 attempts to fix the system, so that it works as intended.

What This Mod Doesn't Do
It won't actually disable the system if you install "KillAll" your Rep will change, you just won't get any negative effects from it. Postive effects have been retained. Also if installing one of the reducer packages, then it won't effect the chances of being accused of cheating, it just won't destroy the relationship when it happens. (For a more elegant system, try V2)

This is a Tuning Mod, so it shouldn't matter what EP's or SP's you do or don't have. Obviously you will need patch 1.22 to use this Mod. Partially compatible with EGC (see changelog), Definitely compatible with Non-Core Modded games, and probably compatible with Awesome but I haven't checked. This Mod edits the "RomanticVisibility" XML, but as the entire thing is given over to Romantic Rep the chances of conflict are pretty much 0.

Only install ONE of these mods. They all edit the same resource and will conflict with each other

I love this. Is there an update for vs. 1.55? Or is it good to go?

I opened version 2.1.1 of the mod in S3PE, and I think it's still compatible.
Because the others change the same file, I think they should also be compatible.

It doesn’t seem to work for me.
I tried the “KillAll” version but didn’t work, so i tried the “2.1.1 Seasons/University compatible” version, which didn’t seem to have any effect either. I even tried it without any other mods.
I’m running a 1.65.5 updated game installation with all expansions.
I’d love to use this mod, the reputation system should be tunable in game options, and admittedly I just wanna play a slimeball sim without consecuences XD
Any ideas are apreciated, thank you for your hard work

I have Seasons, and am planning to get University, but I really rather the functionality of KillAll than the "fully" compatible version. Will it cause issues?

EDIT: Turns out KillAll does not work at all for me. And the latest, compatible version only delays the autonomous accusations of cheating and breaking up. It happens anyway, the Sim interrupting any romantic actions of the straying Sims.

Someone really needs to update this mod! This reputation system is horrible! Why should my sim be a cheater if she/he was never dating/married in the first place? My sims have the right to be with whoever they want as long as there is no commitment!

Well, it doesn't crash or anything in 1.67, but neither does it appear to actually work. I just had a sim who has been married happily for quite a while get the "cheater" reputation because she was out in a public place on a date with her husband, and an old flame I didn't realise was still listed as a romantic interest was also there. That wouldn't have happened if the mod was working correctly (I know, because I've used to mod for a very long time and it used to work perfectly).

I'll see if it works in version 1.69 and inform you if it doesnt.
It does work, it only broke because I was trying to use more than 1 at a time.

Use the Relationship Panel Edit Mod by Nraas Industries, then you can control-click on the old flame's portrait to remove it from her relationship panel.

I compared 2.2 to the vanilla RomanceVisibilityState XML for 1.67, and it appears it should still be compatible. Crashes or failures are likely due to mod conflicts.

I am a little confused that ReducedChanceOfAccusingDueToTraitAboveReproach was still the default value, though. I thought the mod was supposed to prevent Above Reproach sims from being accused?
