Dark Meditation Mods
--------------------

Does it bother you to see your Vampire gain almost nothing from using Dark Meditation to restore their Vampire Energy? Does it also bother you to see how long Dark Meditation last for your Vampire? 15 minutes??

Without further ado...

These mods changes the amount of time and energy a Vampire needs to meditate to regain their Vampire Energy:

Flavor 1: Increases the time from 15 minutes to 60 minutes to allow the Vampire to restore their Vampire Energy to full. (EA energy gain values remains the same)

Flavor 2: Increases the time from 15 minutes to 120 minutes to allow the Vampire to restore their Vampire Energy to full. (Reduced energy gain values to allow the bar to become full)

Flavor 3: Increases the time from 15 minutes to 60 minutes and increases the amount of energy the Vampire restores. (EA minimum minutes = 15 Chaavik maximum minutes = 60 with EA energy gain values)

** Vampires may exit their Dark Meditations before time is up when their Vampire Energy bars are full. **
** Flavor 2 allows Vampires to substantially gain their ranks and points to spend on their Vampire Powers. ** (I am using this flavor myself in my game)
** Flavor 3 is a Random version - Vampires may fully regain their energy or not between 15 to 60 minutes. If you prefer your Vampires to gain their energy bars randomly, this is it. **


Dark Meditation Buff Mods
-----------------------------

These mods modify the amount of time a Vampire's buff lasts from the time the Vampire finishes performing an interaction to the time the Vampires begins performing an interaction.

When a Vampire finishes Dark Meditation to restore their energy and gain experience toward their next Vampire Rank, the Vampire gains an "Energized" buff lasting 180 Sim minutes by EA default.

EA default = 180 Sim minutes (3 Sim hours)

Several flavors of Dark Meditation Buff are described below:

Flavor 1: Eliminates the buff to allow the Vampire to use Dark Meditation immediately after use (Personal pick)
Flavor 2: Decreases the amount of time to 90 Sim minutes (2 Sim hours)
Flavor 3: Decreases the amount of time to 45 Sim minutes (45 Sim minutes)
Flavor 4: Increases the amount of time to 360 Sim minutes (6 Sim hours)
Flavor 5: Increases the amount of time to 720 Sim minutes (12 Sim hours)
Flavor 6: Increases the amount of time to 1440 Sim minutes (24 Sim hours) ** Pescado style **

** Pescado style ** refers to a well known modder, JM Pescado from MATY, of Sims 2 and Sims 3 who liked to make everything -HARDER- for his poor Sims. If you're a sadist who likes to make everything harder for your Sims, then Flavor 6 is the mod you want!

CAUTION:

Flavors 5 and 6 are a couple of risky mods to lengthen the amount of time the Vampire retains the "Energized" buff because if the Vampire loses their energy from performing Vampire-related interactions or being in the sunlight, they can't use Dark Meditation while they have the "Energized" buff. Use at your own risk.

Sims 4 and Sims 4 Vampires are required to use any flavor of this mod!

TIME NOTE:

Time is unmodified during testing in my game. I do not use any time changing mods to increase or decrease the length of time played per Sim hour. If you use a mod to modify the length of time per Sim hour in your game, these mods might not give you the results as described above.

EA's milliseconds default is 25, which roughly equals 1 Sim second.

WARNING:

Pick only -one- flavor to suit your Vampire's needs! The flavor mods will conflict with each other!!

In short:

You can have 1 flavor from the Dark Meditation Mods flavor pack and 1 flavor from the Dark Meditation Buff Mods flavor pack together in your game. Both types of mods edit different files.


MODDING NOTES:

EA's original Dark Meditation interaction was set to a minimum of 15 minutes and a maximum of 15 minutes. In an unmodified game, the Vampire meditates for exactly 15 minutes and does not gain their Vampire Energy. Their Vampire Energy bars visibly shows no increases at all!

15 minutes is not enough time for a Vampire to increase their Vampire ranks or points for their Vampire Powers.

TUNING MOD NOTES:

The following .XML files have been edited and will conflict with other mods using below:

E882D22F!00000011!0000000000024E70.vampire_Power_DarkMeditation.InteractionTuning.xml
6017E896!00000011!0000000000026006.buff_Vampire_DarkMeditation.BuffTuning.xml
