Updated Jan 18, 2018 - The mod has been updated to version 5 for compatibility with the latest version of The Sims 4, v1.38.49.1020, Jan 11 2018 game patch.

Keep Instruments in Inventory

How many times have you sent your musician sim to the bar or park to showcase their latest hit single only to find when they get there that they left the guitar on the floor of the bathroom or some other stupid corner of the house? If you're like me, pretty much every time. OK, I admit it I sometimes don't stop to think!

I had enough, so I wrote this mod for The Sims 4 to change the default action to putting an instrument in the sims inventory when they have finished playing. Now they'll always have their instrument handy no matter where they may roam.

Installation

This mod is a bit different than most as it contains both a standard package file and a script mod. Both must be installed for the mod to work properly, but the installation isn't all that complex.

Unzip both files contained in the main zip file you downloaded into your Mods folder. You should end up with a package file named 'MTS_Scumbumbo_KeepInstrumentsInInventory' AND a zip file named 'MTS_Scumbumbo_KeepInstrumentsInInventory_Script' in the Mods folder.

Make sure that scripting mods are enabled in the game options (on the "Other" tab). Be sure to check this setting after updating the game for a new patch, as if you don't turn off the show mods at startup option the game will disable scripts after an update is installed.

See the screenshotof a sample Mods folder if you need a reference. You'll have other CC and mods in there, but it's important that both files shown are in the Mods folder for this to work properly. Without the script portion of the mod, visiting sims or sims on community lots can pick up instruments and steal them!

If you wish, the package file can be placed in a subfolder, but the zip file must go into the main Mods folder.

Compatibility

This mod should be compatible with The Sims 4 version 1.38.49.1020 or newer.

This mod may conflict with any other mods that modify the strategy for putting down instruments or other objects.

As this modifies the generic strategy for putting down any instrument, it should continue to work for any new instruments added to the game.
