How? I only found a function listing (the more than 8 sims isn't in it) but no proper explanation on how to use it.

Sorry, but you found a XML file saying something like MaxHousehold? If it's 8, then you can probably change it, though it probably wont work. You will most likely need to do some core modding for that.

It should be right under the "Settings". This is only on the newest SuperComputer though, the 1.4.6 version I think doesn't have it.

Well than seems like I have to cave and update.
Thanks for the help

Edit:

I updated, and it seems to be working just fine, but I do have one more question, there is any mod (or way to make one with xml) to make all sim's icon appear?

I am having trouble Sims 3 XML Tuning Modding. It told me to go to S3PE I did as it said till I got to GameplayData, when I tried to open it it wanted to know what file I wanted to open it in. I tried all the file it would let me and nothing happened it would not let me do the next step what do I do. I want to make a mod just to try it out.

Default Override vs Replace
Under Edit in the tutorial there is a note
Note: If you are very comfortable editing XML already, you can choose just selected tags to override and delete the rest from your package. If you don't know how to do that or what that means, don't worry about it.

I have been playing with the books xml, and have found out a lot by poking at it, but I can't seem to find how to add a book to the in game books list without including ALL the other books too.

to get the book to show up at all there are 2 books you have to have, the meta-book (I think this is the defaults, or something) and then the book you want to have show up, what I have currently is

Code:
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<Books>
<BookSkill>
<Title>Test</Title>
<Author>Author</Author>
<Skill>None</Skill>
<MinSkill>0</MinSkill>

<Value>25</Value>
<NotInBookStore>False</NotInBookStore>
<GeometryState>BookMediumThin</GeometryState>
<MaterialState>bookGardeningSkLvl3</MaterialState>
</BookSkill>
</Books>


but other than messing with the xml I have followed the tutorial to the letter.

PS despite this problem, thank you for taking the time to make the tutorial


I have just downloaded as many xml tuning type mods as I could find, and could not find a single example of the xml only containing the nodes that are being changed... Help, is this even possible?

Since tuning mods override the existing file, doing what you want requires a separate loader, which is able to read a non-replacement "Books" file.

In this particular case, I actually intend to add a "Books" loader into the next phase of Careers Mod, since another user requested such a while back.

The next phase of that mod is currently in development, and will be available sometime in the next couple months.

Cheers.

While this is possible, it shouldn't really ever be done because it could alter game behavior. What happens is that classes in the core dlls have their own initial values written into the code (you can view them in Reflector, in the static constructors). The gameplay XMLs act as an easy way for the developers to override these fields by making them tunable. That means if you delete the tag from the XML, the game will revert to the original value in the code - and that could cause unexpected things to happen.

Hi, i followed the Tutorial to change the Traits system. I wanted to unlock all Traits for Babies, as i see it as an easier way to have my babies pre determined what they will be when they reach Young adult hood Like a Family oriented sim. Anyways, i Also Changed the Values within the same file for Rewards. i dropped a zero on everything. I tried uploading this as a whole file, but i was Told i can split the file, but that makes both Unlocked traits for babies, and the Reward values Incompatible with one another later. How i can i go about making these work together.

I'm curious about altering which actions are seen as being inappropriate for guests to perform as I find the ones like making a bed a bit stupid. I've found the bed making tuning file but I'm not sure what values are allowed by the game. The default for this is 2.9 and I have also seen the value 1.5 used for some other inappropriate actions. It would appear that 2.9 means it's not allowed and 1.5 means it is allowed but I wanted to check before I messed.

Okay. I'm trying to make a "Psychotic" trait using this tool. Do I need to replace a trait to get Psychotic to show in game? Can someone walk me through how to get it working for the base game?

You need to run the program as an Administrator. That or copy the gameplay data file to your desktop and work on it from there. Basically S3PE isn't allowed to access files in the game directory unless you run it as an Administrator.

When you go to run S3PE, right-click it and choose run as administrator. That's what I had to do, and it worked for me when i went to open the file.

Onyx Sims is now open!
