UPDATE: This mod has been completely overhauled, please delete old version and re-download.

Updated for game version: 1.47.51.1020

What does this mod do?

This mod adds a ring box in the form of a coffin to the game that when activated and worn makes your vampire sim protected from the harmful effects of the sunlight. It also adds the option to remove the ring causing the protected effect to stop. Additionally, you are able to pick up the ring box and carry it in your sims inventory without actually equipping it to the sim, as well as to put the box back into the world and leave it there for aesthetic purposes.

***Disclaimer: This item does not appear as a physical ring on your sims character model while wearing it or otherwise.


How does it work?

Simply buy the Coffin jewelry box, under Decorations-Misc. and place it on your lot. Once placed, click the ring box with the desired Sim and choose the interaction to "Put on Daylight Ring." The Sim will place the ring box in their inventory and will receive the custom buff shown below:



Your Sim is now protected from the sunlight. The ring box will remain in your Sim's inventory until it is removed with the interaction "Take off Daylight Ring," which will remove the buff shown above. The Sim will then place the ring box down near them.




Important Information
  • UPDATE: It now works for vampire sims who have died by sunlight.
  • UPDATE: Two separate versions were added, one that makes the constant Protected buff give +1 Happy, and one that makes it give +1 Energized. ONLY DOWNLOAD ONE VERSION..


Bugs

-The Coffin jewelry box glitches slightly when a Sim picks it up or puts it down. Part of the box becomes slightly transparent during these interactions.

-If you have the Coffin Jewelry box in your active sim's inventory when you travel to another lot (away from home), the Jewelry box may duplicate. Don't panic, it should fix itself once you bring that sim back home.


Extra resources

-Here is a link to one of the original files for the Coffin jewelry box with ring (because the original creator's link to it is deactivated): http://leo-sims.tumblr.com/search/jewelry

-I HIGHLY recommend this program to anyone who plays with multiple mods, this is a wonderful tool that allows you to easily check for any conflicts between your mods: http://modthesims.info/d/561550


Conflicts

This mod doesn't override any files and should not conflict with any other mods,


Requirements

The Vampires game pack is required for this mod.

I love this mod and the fact that I can pass it along to a select few Sims instead of eliminating that weakness altogether and taking away from the game or a storyline. It works like a gem. Hah.

I understand your frustration, the problem is what the hidden buff Daywalker's Delight adds, and I originally tried to change the tuning of it so that it wouldn't make the Sim so energized, but the buffs and tuning for the vampire stuff in the game is really tricky and I couldn't get it to work. I will keep tinkering it however to see if I can try to change it.

Just so you know, I updated the original so that the buff is toned down more, so instead of having +4 total Energized when the ring is equipped your Sim will have +2. I also added an alternate version that tones it down even more and total only has +1 Energized when the ring is equipped. Just in case anybody has a preference (I prefer the alternate version). Hope you enjoy and have a fantastic day!

This is a weird request, but would you consider adding a more expensive version? Like, something kind of ridiculous, so it's the most expensive item in the game? I love the idea but for story purposes I'd love it even more if it was hard to get and my sims had to work to acquire it.

Which version of it would you like me to do it to? I wouldn't mind uploading one to your specification I'd just like to know which version you use and i'll upload a really expensive version of that one.

I have not personally tested it myself but I have looked at all of the changes for the recent update and there is no reason that this mod shouldn't work perfectly fine with it and Get Famous.
