Staff note: An updated version of this mod for 1.24 -27.10.2016 is available here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=585005



It is time for me to say 'adieu' and retire from modding TS4. The decision is a purely personal one. Thank-you to those who supported me during my run. I've been at it since this game first released, and I really appreciated the kind words that kept me going now and again. If anyone wishes to take up any of my mods, feel free. I have gathered a retirement archive for your convenience. Happy simming! ~MB }i{

Approved for patch 2-June-2016!

*****

This week in my game the sink broke, the toilet broke, the computer broke, and the television broke...all one right after the other. Then I raged quit and made this mod. What I found was that all of the objects that break were set to a chance of 67% breakage. Which I suppose is why they do break all the time.

So, here are the reduced breakage flavors:

5 Percent - Default chance changed from 67% on all objects to 5%
15 Percent - Default chance changed from 67% on all objects to 15%
30 Percent - Default chance changed from 67% on all objects to 30%





How to Install (Important!)

Unzip the file and place in your Mod folder! Install only one flavor.

Thank you! A toilet with 8 Reliability really shouldn't break twice a week every week...

I still hear the broken object sound, but it's not broken, never sure when i hear the sound if i should go look around the house for it. But it happens infrequently so that's good at least.

Thank you! It gets really annoying having to stop and fix things every single day! My items in real life almost NEVER break, so that was completely immersion breaking.

Thank you! I live in an old house with breaking infrastructure, and the break rate in the game was ridiculous by even my skewed standards!!

Great fix. At fist I thought I wouldn't need it, but when things broke literally one after the other I got the 30% version.

There is an update. They only changed the "amount" numbers rather than the "percentage".

Thank you so much for the update! I played my game without the mod for an hour and my sim was repairing things literally everyday. This mod is a lifesaver

Thank you so much. this stupid frequent breaking made me cheat on a no-cheating file. I'm seeing this as a bug fix, not a cheat mod. all of my sinks, my bath, my shower, my oven, and my computer were broken, and my Sims frequently failed or were given dastardly mood lets afterwords, and I had to use the kaching cheat to fix them all as I only had 300$. It made the game unplayable.

Thanks for the mod. 67% is a bit insane.

Can you please list the calculated chances of V2? I was previously using V2 15% and stuff was like NEVER breaking. I had the cheapest toilet and shower break once in many hours of gameplay. Gonna try V2 30% for the time being.

I don't think your wonderful mod works anymore since the new update, (the one with the new careers) I'm back to having items breaking one after the other, sometimes I have more than one item broken at one time.
