Incorporated into simrealist's "Private Practice" mod!!!
Yep, that's right! You can now enjoy Cooler Sicknesses in a completely new way! Simrealist's mod "Private Practice" is a general health mod with a lot of additional features like doctor's appointments and your sim age depending on their health status! A lot is planned, a lot is already in it, including my mod!
if you wanna use Private Practice, make sure to delete my mod first.

What this mod does
  • Increases symptom length
  • Makes illness buffs visible and affecting mood
  • Fixes original illness buffs to not be cured by travelling

Longer Symptoms
Since I have been sick and tired (haha, get it?) of my sims being sick for like 2hrs only, calling in sick for work and then jumping around totally healthy all day,
I originally created this tuning mod to increase the length of symptoms based on the illness type.

Illness type mild: 12 hr symptoms instead of 2hrs

Illness type severe: 24 hr symptoms instead of 3hrs

Now showing illnesses!
With the update to Version 2.0, I added the ability to actually tell what kind of illness your sim suffers from. The buffs (and therefore the illnesses) are hidden in the original game, so you can just kind of tell what kind of illness they have by looking at the symptoms. Not needed anymore: I added visible buffs with icons to make them actually visible! These illnesses are the same as the ones you can discover in the doctors career. There's two different types for each illness - mild and severe. Besides a change in symptom lengths, I haven't noticed any difference in those two yet. Expect further examination.
Illness lengths are not shown. You never know. There needs to be some challenge in that system, doesn't it?

There are 8 different Illnesses in the game:
1Bloaty HeadUncomfortable +3Headache, Steamy Ears
2Burning BellyUncomfortable +3Fever, Nausea
3Gas and GigglesPlayful +3Giggling, Nausea
4Itchy PlumbobUncomfortable +3Itchiness
5Llama FluUncomfortable +3Cough and Sneeze, Fever
6Starry EyesDazed +3Delirium, Dizziness
7Sweaty ShiversUncomfortable +3Fever, Itchiness
8Triple ThreatUncomfortable +3Cough and Sneeze, Dizziness

Requiered Gameversion and Pack
This mod should generally be fine with updates, unless EA touches sickness buffs.
If you notice else, please notify me.
You need to have The Sims 4: Get To Work

Possible Conflicts/Known Issues
Using "Slice Of Life" mod by KawaiiStacie will cause the symptom length being reduced to the regular values. KS has been contacted about this as I can't do anything about this.
This mod may conflict with any other mod altering the Buff Tuning files listed above.
