No Relationship Decrease from Performance

Supported for game version 1.67. This mod requires the ShowTime EP.

So your sim is rocking out on stage like this...
...and the outcome is this?
Performances have this nifty feature that lets the audience request tricks and when your performer fulfills them, they get a small performance gain and relationship gain with the audience. Like so often, good effort with weak execution. Every 30 minutes the request timer resets if the requested trick wasn't fulfilled and punishes the performer with a small relationship decrease with the audience. This reset happens even if no trick was requested at all! And I don't know about you, but I have trouble even recognizing the requests. Actually I didn't recognize a single trick request in the dozen or so performances I played. Gives me about 6 times the relationship with the audience decreases per gig. Doesn't seem quite fair to me.

So, the solution is quite simple: This mod raises the time for requests to time out (kTimeAudienceRequestTrickIsValid) from 30 mintes to 300 minutes. That's longer than the performance even goes, so your sim won't suffer a relationship decrease.

Obviously, this causes trick requests to not time out while a performance is running. In turn that means that no new tricks will be requested until the current request has been fulfilled. So if you didn't recognize a request, you won't get another chance. I considered implementing a nifty scripting solution to resolve this, but ultimately decided against it. I don't think it'd be worth the effort.

Special thanks to Don_Babilon for his detailed error description.

legal stuff

possible conflicts
This mod overrides the ShowStage_0x15be3229756d5695.xml from GameplayData.package and will conflict with every mod that does the same.

Please follow Game_Help:Installing_Sims_3_Package_Fileswiki. I can't explain it any better than that. Seriously, I won't even try even if you ask me.

Just rip it out whenever you want.

Might lead to a serious case of squished brain. Use for rocket fuel. Don't use for stomach ailment.
