update V2.1 August 6, 2018
A tiny update to fix an issue where the text string "A Welcome Departure" appeared on other game items.

update V2 July 22, 2018
Updated to take into account witnessed deaths as well. I found what I think is an oversight in the default game where sims witness a death AND get a call about the death, leading to double moodlets.
I seem to have fixed it. Scumbumbo's mod, Improved Death Reactions V3, is now obsolete, as everything it did is integrated into this mod and updated for game version 1.44.88.10. Testing sim deaths is time consuming so I only tested a handful of scenarios, all seemed to be working. If you come across some unexpected behaviors reach me in the comments!

Description
Recently my sims have been getting notifications that sims they barely know have died. Unfortunately, this means if your sim is popular, they're in an almost perpetual state of mourning. The default state of the game is to give sims a sad moodlet for 2 days. Sims will be sadder when their pet dies than when a child or spouse dies. In short the 24 scenarios that can happen all have almost the same outcome which doesn't make any sense.

This mod balances out the buffs sims receive when someone they know dies to reflect their relationship. If they are only acquaintances with the deceased they will get a fine moodlet for a few hours, but if it's their spouse that passes they will be devastated for days! If your sim dislikes anyone, even family, good riddance! They'll get a happy moodlet instead. Immediate family moodlets will be stronger and last longer, so a sim will be slightly sadder for a longer time if their brother dies as opposed to an uncle.

This mod will conflict with other mods that change sims death reactions.

There are a lot of tuning changes
