scope of this mod
This mod is a compilation of interactions that are either entirely new or altered/fixed EAxian interactions. The latter one is done by replacing the original interactions.

tuning
The tuning package contains two XML resources for tunables and an XML resource for the basic availability of the interactions. Except for the latter one, there is no documentation, but the names should be mostly self-explaining. If you're able to do tuning/XML modding, just skip this and do your shtick. If you're new to to this, get yourself S3PE and read the instructions. It will work with other package editors as well of course, but I will only explain it for S3PE.



translation
Wherever possible, I used already existing and localized strings; new strings are fully localizable. If you are willing to support a translation, please read the instructions.

Disclaimer: I consider my mods to be free as free beer, copyleft - all right reversed, whatever you may call it. I expect the same from your translation! If you are not okay with this, then don't support a translation! If you already supported a translation and are not okay with this, tell me and I will pull it.

Currently supported languages: English, Spanish, Finnish, French, German, Brazilian, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Norwegian, Dutch, Japanese, Swedish, Russian, Czech, Korean



legal stuff

possible conflicts
This is a scripting mod and as such the possibility for conflicts with other mods, no matter what kind, is next to non-existant. Other scripting mods that replace interactions might tangle with this mod, though. I've implemented safeguards for the cases I know. Heads Up! If you check this mod in Delphy's Dashboard, it may show a conflict with my other mods. You can ignore that. It's by design, i.e. some of my mods share one framework resource. It will actually conflict in the sense that the game will only load one instance of that resource. That's the whole point, though.

installation
Please follow Game_Help:Installing_Sims_3_Package_Fileswiki. I can't explain it any better than that. Seriously, I won't even try even if you ask me.

deinstallation
Do NOT just rip this mod out! If one of the interactions of this mod is currently running when you save your game, you may become unable to load your savegame without this mod!

This mod contains a lot of autonomous interactions, so even if you make sure that none of your active sims currently perform one of the interactions, there's still a very high chance that a townie is performing one.

Prior to deinstallation, reset all sims in town by opening the console with Ctrl-Shift-C and using "ResetSim *" (without the quotes). Alternatively use twallan's ErrorTrap mod which will drop all "illegal" interactions upon load.

support
I support my mods. I appreciate bug reports. I don't support mods or custom content in general. It's not an issue with a mod if it doesn't even show up in the game.

I wanted to use "Be Trained..." on a community lot, but the option didn't show up on any equipment in a gym. It does show up on my home lot.

There was a sim with athletic skill 9 who was there, and was running on a treadmill. I assigned a role of "trainer" using Arsil's Custom Generic Role mod. Perhaps that's part of the problem? That same sim is also in the Trainer self-employed NRaas career.

I'm having a problem with this on 1:69.
Two sims enter a theatre/horse show/anywhere using the Attend With interation and 2 sims enter then one auto leaves and loses the command.

I started some testing in Deery Meadows and it seems that newcomers might be able to just freelance partime job shifts until they build a house on their lot.

There aren't any further patch related updates for 1.67/69 required for this mod than the developer has already provided, the current version works as intended for most of us.

Really thrilled to find a mod that allows inactives to autonomously read skill books and for broke student sims to *finally* get part time job shifts. Thank you so much for creating this mod!

Not sure if I'm the only one who noticed this but couple updates from playing with this mod:

1) University student sims CANNOT use the "work parttime shift" at the rabbit holes with part time jobs. Only non-students can do it. So this mod cannot be used as a "part time job for broke students" hack. Too bad :/
2) When my adult male sim enrolled in the military career did attend the 3 hours of parttime shift during the week-end, he only got paid 1 simoleon and not the 3h x 30 simoleon each expected.

It could be a glitch due to my other mods installed but thought I'd share in case someone else is experiencing the same things with this mod.

Other than that, the mod does wonders in my game vis-a-vis laundry, socializing, group activities and so on and so forth. Must have.

Well, that's the military for you! (Sorry. Bad joke based on having been a military brat throughout my entire childhood and then being a military wife for much of my young adulthood.)

I was recently playing a would-be rock star (i.e., a character in the music industry) and his wife was in the police, and they were both able to do the three hours and got paid as expected. Added bonus, if you had a career opportunity like "read this book and then report back" and you were close to a promotion, if you do the three hours of part time, it counts as work and you can get a promotion (the male sim had the ambitious trait, so he was always champing at the bit for a promotion and this helped with that).

I would say there may be a conflict in your game. Or there may be a problem with the Military career, but I've never played it (too much RL experience with the military ). You might want to do a test game with a different career and see what happens? It definitely worked for police and music in my game (haven't tested other careers; I only just recently got back into playing Sims 3 after a long hiatus).

That's true, I noticed it worked just fine with most careers. Actually I think that the military career worked as well after that one time. And then there are days when my sims go back home after extra time at custom careers - like the recently released Hawaï Five-0 career - and they get paid peanuts again!

Good point: even if they may sometimes be paid peanuts, at least they get a job performance bar boost and even promoted, so it completely makes up for the glitch.

Haha, I bet!

I switched to a different household and everyone has been doing fine and received full compensation when working extra hours. The glitch did happen a few times again but it represents less than 5% of my gameplay time, so I made peace with it.

Thanks for your feedback, much appreciated

I noticed that when having a party, inactives were autonomously “socialize”ing and it made the party really active and social so that was good. (Some of them doing never-ending “socialize - mean”, so that was a little annoying but i guess that’s also realistic...)

The problem was birthday party and wedding party.. Once they start “socialize”ing, they dont stop socializing. They don’t come gather around and celebrate the growing up event and wedding event. It seems these events cannot cancel socialize interactions.
I guess to work around this, we just start these events right away before inactives start socializing...

As Buzzler explains on his Description page, the tuning resources file needs to be opened in S3PE. Just opening the package file in Notepad would make a mess of things and any edits to it would not be usable.

Is that scrambled up result really the way it looks after running it through S3PE to separate out the three (I think) xml resources?
