This is a tuning mod that improves your birdwatching experience using the birdfeeder that comes with the Backyard Stuff Pack. It gives:
  • Shorter Time
  • More Fun
  • Negative Emotions (Buffs) Reduced


Watching birds should be fun and help reduce the stresses and tensions of your sim's life. EA's version of watching birds takes forever and gives very little boost to your Fun motive unless you are a painter or art lover. What is more, there is no reduction to your negative emotions.

This mod reduces the duration from 30min to 20min. It gives a slight boost to the Fun gain and causes a reduction in any negative emotions.

Conflicts and Compatibility

Built with PC ver1.37, this mod is probably not backwards compatible.

You need the Birdfeeder object that comes with the Backyard Stuff Pack to watch birds. Otherwise this mod won't do anything at all.

File E882D22F!0000000E!0000000000022328.object_BirdFeeder_View.InteractionTuning is modified. Any other mod changing this file will conflict.

This mod IS compatible with my Friendly Birds mod. They can be used together.
