Are your costume parties in grave need of some excitement? Are your spooky parties so dull that your guests are jumping in the pool and removing the ladders BY THEMSELVES?

Well, pick up that phone, and call Honest Uncle Grimbo's Party Hire and Undertaker TODAY!

He does weddings! Birthdays! Bar mitzvahs! Costume parties! Spooky parties! And he makes one heck of a mean Ridgeport!

Hula Zombies not included.


What this mod does:

This modifies the "bartender_CostumeParty" xml file, and changes it so that when hiring a Mixologist for your Costume party or Spooky party, the Grim Reaper will show up as the Mixologist. It also changes his job title from "Soul Reaper" to "Mixolgist" in these situations. Because this is his day job. Reaping is really more of a hobby.

You don't need Spooky Stuff for this mod (as far as I know), as it appears that Costume and Spooky parties draw their bartender from the same file. Additionally, it should be noted that while Grim will show up for work on a community lot with a bar, the game automatically assigns Mixologists on Nightclub and Bar lots, so he'll mostly just act like any other partygoer in this situation. Grim will also reap a dead Sim's soul, should they die while he's on-duty, but as the party atmosphere tends to die as well when this happens, he doesn't go back to mixing drinks.

What this mod DOESN'T do:
For any other party, this shouldn't affect it. I've tested this with a House Party and a Dinner Party, and I got an ordinary Mixologist instead.

I've done some testing, but it's always possible I've missed something. If Grim shows up for a dead Sim and is still called a Mixologist, let me know (he doesn't for me, he's a regular ol' Soul Reaper in that situation). If Grim shows up for another party type, let me know (he also doesn't for me). If you use a Costume party as a pretense to Woohoo old Grimbo and your computer explodes... well, that one's on you.

None of these things have happened to me, but, you know, never say never.
