The [b]Rambunctious Religions Mod for the Sims 4

4 whimsical, made-up religions for your Sims to join!

***KNOWN ISSUES***

***UPDATE NOTES***

Each SimReligion (called that way to make sure nobody thinks these are real religions) comes with its own special social interactions, which differ if the listener is non-religious, part of the same faith, or part of another. Each SimReligion also offers specific perks in the form of moodlets and career / skill benefits.
Also includes lot traits for each SimReligion, a religious career and a "religious gathering" social event - complete with a Base Game basic church building and a universal Holy Book so that you can get started right away!

***
Will your Sim join the Congregation of non-Believers, the Cult of the Cowplant, the Worship of the Watcher, or the Treaders of the Occult? Are they more of a nerd, a hippy, a creative and morally elevated person, or a misfit?

***
NOTE: be aware, this is NOT about putting real religions in the Sims. This is a Sim-like take on faith, which means, it's meant to be as humorous as life-emulating; it doesn't take itself (or real life) too seriously, and is almost a soft parody at times. It is not meant to be disrespectful to anyone or anything.

The SimReligions



The Perks and Interactions of Each SimReligion
Note: just about all moodlets last 4 hours (except those that last the duration of an interaction / a certain time of the day, see descriptions below).

The Congregation of Non-Believers:


The Cult of the Cowplant:

Worship of the Watcher:

Treaders of the Occult:

UPDATE v0.95

New features: (see image)
- Religion skill! Gain skill by using religious interactions and reading the Holy Book. Plus, in-game instructions regarding the skills and how to unlock interactions, in case you ever need a refresher (available in the "action -- Religion menu")
- Two new prayer interactions that unlock at higher skill levels.
- Events (rabbit hole) with storytelling moodlets, such as an initiation ceremony (with a different 'story' for each SimReligion; during initiation, Sims sequence through 4 story moodlets that tell you what is happening). Most of these also have 3 different possible outcome moodlets.
- Some interactions now unlock only if sim has had an initiation or has reached a certain skill level.
- Control world religion! Automatically assign SimReligion and skill level or absence thereof to all other Sims present. Or, automatically remove religion from all Sims present. OR activate the autonomous assignment of religion to all Sims your active sim meets over the next 10 sim days. Will not affect Sims to whom you manually assigned religions. In order to not break immersion when playing, these options are nested in the "Actions -- Religion" menu, where the SimReligion-choosing buttons are, and not in the "Religion" menu where Sims find interactions to perform.
- "Ask Sim if Religious" interaction.
- Club rules for each religion!
- Objectives for the "Religious Official" career have been modified to better fit these new features.

And of course, all the old features remain!

HOW TO START GIVING YOUR SIMS SIMFAITHS


***
The "Religious Gathering" Social Event (read if you are going to use the social event)

BONUS: THE PSYCHIC SIMS MOD
No vampires, no aliens, no mermaids? No problems! Make your Sims psychic with this little addition. They will count as an Occult within the overall mod. More info on the Psychic Sims! mod page

Base-Game only, what do you get? Or, on pack compatibility

I strive to make my mods as Base-Game friendly as possible. That means all icons and animations are chosen to be base-game compatible. If you notice an animation not playing or an icon not showing, notify me so that I can change it.
This mod is best used with at least one pack with occults (vampires, Island Living, Get to Work or Realm of Magic) and City Living (and once I have club rules and outfits up, Get Together). Some of the religion perks or activities pertain to other various packs. If you have Base-Game only, this is what you get:
- A fully available Worship of the Watcher
- You can join Treaders of the Occults but of course perks and interactions related to occults won't be available. You can make this a little better by grabbing the Psychic Sims module and making some Sims Psychic, it counts as occult.
- A fully available Congregation of Non-Believers (or almost)
- A somewhat available Cult of the Cowplant (a bunch of perks there relate to other packs)
- A fully available Church Building, career and social event (note, you will have to use the not-great Sermonator Microphone as a prop for sermons if you don't have the podium from City Living)

COMING SOON: club rules, club outfit, new interactions, whims, and more.

PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW THIS WORKS IN YOUR GAME! This is completely necessary at this point for me to know if all works well or not
