View Full Version : Hero Titles Reworked

7th Dec 2016, 1:24 PM

After a long period of absence, I'm back at Sims modding.
Since I always hated the titles of some heroes, and all kid's titles, I decided to make a small mod that edits the English strings responsible for naming Heroes.
Also, there's CSV files (download the Editing Set) for those that don't like either Maxis' or my titles and want to try out editing on their own. I also included Chann's STBLizer (http://modthesims.info/t/360093) to help in such an endeavour.

Most notable changes in my version, the Reworked:
- Changed the Jacoban Priest titles to more accurately reflect its Catholic inspiration.
- Changed all vassals except the one from Yacothia to "Duke" or "Duchess" and made the title for a single-province Monarch also "Duke" or "Duchess".
- Added epithets - we are supposed to live in Medieval times, after all.

Please note that changing any titles will make them appear the same in all games, and this seems to be hardcoded - sorry for those that want a Wizard King in one game and a Grand Emperor in another.

I'm considering a version in which the standard name includes surnames, if there is demand for it. I personally don't really use surnames anyway, but it's like 10 minutes work so no biggie.

Thank you for this! I'm really glad someone still makes mods for TSM. also, sharing an editing set was very kind of you!

I figured my style was not everyone's style, hehe.
If you find better titles than mine, let me know. I'm not exactly satisfied by all of them.

I didn't mean I didn't like the titles silly! :lol: it's just that modders who build a tool that will make the mod customizable for everyone is rare, and it is very thoughtful of you.
Your titles are good enough for me :) I didn't even download the CSV files, as I'm terrible at modding lol

Could you possibly make a version with the children's titles added back in? I found them very amusing and don't have a clue about modding.

Ditto to anb1388. More people than you may know who play TSMP&N have wanted their sims to have the proper titles afforded to Royals such as we know in reality. Having it so, makes ones special time in fantasy with their sims feel more like a desired reality. Thanks a lot Nick_laZ!
