Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
*This mod was created with patch 1.42 and is useless if you do not have Seasons*

working with patch 1.67


I noticed that umbrellas tend to break easily, so I created these mods to tune things to my own liking, and hopefully yours.

The mods are:

Unbreakable Umbrella:

Makes umbrellas impossible to break, this also comes in handy if your sim doesn't have the handiness skill required to upgrade it, or if you want it to be unbreakable and want it to glow at the same time.


Starting chance of umbrella breaking when it's used from 5% ---> 0
Chance of breakage increase after each time umbrella is used 1% ---> 0

Easier Umbrella Break:

Makes the chances of umbrellas breaking even higher than the default EA settings


Starting chance of umbrella breaking when it's used from 5% ---> 10%
Chance of breakage increase after each time umbrella is used 1% ---> 2%

(So it will double the chances)

Umbrella Shock:

This is a bit of a fun bonus, to bring some realism to the game. Makes your Sims get electrocuted when upgrading the umbrella while standing in a puddle.


Whether or not the Sim should get electrocuted when completing the action set to "True"

Easier Umbrella Shock:

Easier Umbrella Break + Umbrella Shock

Unbreakable Umbrella Shock:

Unbreakable Umbrella + Umbrella Shock


These mods edit the Umbrella_XML resource, so any mods which also alter this file will conflict with this one.

Be careful: Only choose ONE of these mods, as using two at the same time will not apply any of the changes made within the mods to the game.

For example, using any flavor of Merkaba's mod will conflict with this one.

Hope you find this useful, and most importantly, hope your Sims will enjoy being dry under the rain!
