Romance gives Fun to Romantic and Alluring Trait Sims

Hey, Triplis here. Was doing some playing and thinking and looking for something simple I could do to help one of the existing traits play more uniquely. Landed on this concept: Make it so that Romantic and Alluring sims gain Fun from successfully doing Romantic interactions.


What this Changes

If your Sim has either the Romantic trait, Alluring trait (from choosing Romance aspiration), or both, they will gain some Fun each time they are involved in a successful Romantic interaction with another sim.

If both sims involved in the Romantic interaction have one of the aforementioned traits, they will both gain Fun.


It's About Time

(That's what's in my head.) I've always thought it weird that Romantics, in particular, don't gain Fun from Romantic socialization. In the past when I pondered it, I wasn't sure how to do such a thing with a mod, but I found a "backdoor" way to make it happen.

If I were doing it the "clean" development way, I would change each Romantic interaction file and add in a new loot for "success" that gives sims with a specific trait some Fun.

Instead, I overrode/added to an existing loot file that gets called in every Romance interaction, when it's successful. Which is...


Compatibility

This mod overrides the file:

S4_0C772E27_00000000_0000000000006CCE | Loot_Romantic_Affection_50

Other mods that override this file will conflict.


Hope you enjoy it! Oh and if you spot any edge cases where a Romantic interaction doesn't give Fun for a Romantic/Alluring sim, let me know. I'm pretty sure the file I overrode covers everything, but I didn't verify rigorously with every single romance interaction.
