Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
[Edit]

I have checked my modified code against the new Nightlife code and you will be happy to know that this will work fine with Nightlife, and not cause any problems. The only (non) issue is one bhav in Nightlife now checks to see if the sims are on a date and make them Jealous if they are. Since we don't want them to get jealous anyway, there is no need to add the check only to ignore it.

ps. I also fixed the download link by re-uploading the file since the link was broken.

[End Edit]

This package contains Jealousy behaviours that have been modified to remove all jealousy from the Sims 2. It includes the work done by o_0 in Hippymods1. I have included their work so as to provide a complete package. I wish to thank him for getting this started.

I have tested this for several hours and under all the conditions I could think of. If you find any bugs please post them in this Beta tester thread.

To use just unzip this into your /downloads directory.

If anyone can tell me how to contact o_O about using their 2 behaviours in this package please let me know. While theirs removed jealousy from whoohoo mine removes it from EVERYTHING. If I cannot get his(her?) permission I will just have to mod the two behaviours o_O did in a slightly different manner before full release.

I have tested all the flirts, hugs, and kisses. No one gets jealous, in fact sometimes they seem to cheer the action on!

This is a simple change, I will work on a more flexible set of changes in the future. Right now it seems to work with everyone, next I will make another version that bases jealousy on attributes like outgoing, playful and nice.

Well, I think that it'd be great if it was done so that any sim with multiple loves automatically didn't exhibit the jealousy thing, and also, that no Sim would ever fire a jealousy trigger for that Sim's rightful spouse, period: It makes absolutely no sense that the person who the sim is having an affair with becomes all jealous and claims this is "cheating" if said sim then kisses his actual wife. This would definitely be much more complicated to make, though. But totally awesome.

Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I cannot accept, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Having multiple romance sims together on a lot is also dangerous, they start flirting automatically and then someone get mad at each other, I have had this multiple times now, it will be a larger and larger problem then the sims starting to know each other better and better. I could live with the woohoo problems, they are solvable but automatic flirt is hard to avoid except turning away guests and micromanage your sims in social events.
Problem is not jealousy actually but lack of courtesy, don’t flirt with another sim or accept flirt if a partner is present, this is important because the neighborhoods are small compared to a small town.
But I believe this would be impossible to solve with a hack so no jealousy is better, to remove jealousy only from romance sims would be better.

Three events; my male sim auto flirted with a girlfriend after a meal wile the lady in the household was present.
The male sim was greeting visitors and they start flirting, both were girlfriends of him and he got mad at them, invited one sim and she had a friend with her.
Last, inviting a girlfriend to the shopping center for public woohoo, exiting the taxi and saw another girlfriend flirting with another man, waiting to the first girlfriend entered the shop started flirting with the one present to restore the friendship, the only fun thing was watching the other male get mad :o)

Can I ask a technical question? In the 'Trigger - Jealousy - Sim' resource, why is the 1st instruction returning FFFD (true) instead of FFFE (false)? Is it meant to just skip the rest of the instructions and then catch the jealousy elsewhere? Thanks.

No problems at all here, even had one sim woohoo the maid in the middle of the living room in the love tub while surrounded by 6 other 98/98 to 100/100 relationship sims.

Hi, I just tested out your no jealousy patch and it's great! I had my remarried sim guy kiss his wife in front of his original two children and they didn't get jealous and kept their relationship w/dad! Yay! Thanks!

Good catch! This may be why sometimes we get a little relationship loss. I may have done the same thing I did in the twins hack, make a change, hit commit file then change. Ack! x)

I fixed that one and one other that was the same. I will start testing them tonite. I am testing my Polygamy hack now, so I will be able to give it a real workover.

Once I can did into the behaviour files a bit more I will try to do something a bit more refined, but as you saw, mostly I just abort the code at the first line. This worked very well with the sims1 and ended up being the only real safe way to have no jealousy at all.

Once I am sure what all the calls are doing I will release a revised version more like my Sims1 hack. That is instead of just doing nothing the observing love interest will not only NOT get jealous, but actually like the person their lover is kissing (or whatever) even more and go up and give them a hug or kiss too.

(it was too funny btw if you had more than one lover 'catch' you, you could end up with a love chain real quick)

I had that happen once spontaneously (well, mostly cheering). A little surprising, but it worked out well :-)

When it thest this package by itself it worked great, now i can have two married romance sims and maintain thier needs. THANK YOU!!! !amazed When I test this package with the teens can woohoo package again it worked great. But when I tested with the noshoo bed package and the teens can woohoo too package, they jumped out of bed the second I clicked on woohoo or try for baby. As soon as i took out the no shoo package and reloaded the game everything worked fine. I Tought that you should know about this conflict, as many of us are really here to download the packages and items you guys and gals hack for us. Keep up the great work.

so...a married sim doesn't have a reaction when/if they catch their spouse cheating? they're just "fine with it?"

I love this hack! If only someone had come out with it for Sims1. At least now I can make a proper Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice house thanks to this. I have one family where it's one guy living with five women and everybody is in love with everybody else. I've even had them Make Out in front of others and nobody gets mad. Unfortunately, they still get a little freaked when one sim gooses another. I wish I could do something to stop that.

I used the latest version of SimPE (0.10c) to make everyone engaged to everyone else. If there was a Bigamy hack, that would make things easier for me. Lizz, this is a great hack you made. Could you tell me where I can get a tutorial for making my own hacks though?

I've loaded your package, and it works great for me.

Somebody, give me some advice. Should I even post if a beta works?

I've got the chatbug fix, bednoshoo, teenwhoohoo, simcutie's power espresso, and I often run the sims2plus3trainer (I don'[t think I got that here but it was made by -=SWAT-Squad=-). And everything seems to work.

Do y'all want to know when it works? 'Cuz it's all workin' great! You are mad geniuses!

Cheers,

There's a type of jealousy patch I'd love to see, but I have no clue if it would be do-able at all.

I want some sims to be in threesomes, so is there any way to have them not be jealous if romance interactions happen between the spouses, but to be jealous if it happens with someone they're not married to?

Another interesting way to set it up would it be possibly to find a way to set how jealous each seperate sim is (without regard to aspiration, although just a 'romance sims are not jealous, popularity sims are only a bit jealous, family sims are very jealous' setup would work nicely, too).

The threesome idea is already possible with the current no jealousy package. I just had one of my super romance sims move in a guy and his wife, then had him knock her up while the wife watched , then the wife and my sim got down to woohoo while the husband watched. !dodge !heart !amazed

After generating about twenty babies [my sims have been busy :-)]
I noticed that after I add this hack I noticed that "Try for baby" got a baby about one in five times, where as before it was like 80% of the time. Weird, maybe there are some other factors in the "Try for baby" success rate that I'm not aware of.

Oh well, I >LIKE< that now family Sims have to really really work for that baby. With this hack Family and Romance Sims can finally get along!

Oh, also for my sims using the Love Tub when they did Woohoo it always ran the cinematic, even if it wasn't the first time with that sim. I don't remember the Love Tub being like this (or maybe what I remember was of a Love Tub w/o candles...). A cool bug^H^H^Hfeature.
