Thanks Monique. I don't quite understand what the exact connection is between person data 0x64 and sims in OFB...only that Maxis went out of their way to make sure this value is set correctly on all sims (all the Motives - Set Awake calls appear to have been updated to include initializing person data 0x64). Prior to OFB, this value was pretty much left alone. It's unclear if this was an oversight/bug, or if new features are now tied to this value.

The funny business about servos and mood was a red herring. It was a conflict between InTeen and another mod (since resolved).

Hmm I think it was because of the potty hack, it doesn't work with it. Well I have a new game now and it should work. THANKS.

Thank you so much!!! I was wondering why my vamps' moods decayed indoors, I thought Maxis had said that vampires would be okay as long as they stay in during the day. I'm glad someone did something about this extremely irritating issue!

Finally! *squeals and explodes like Gir*

I had to use the boolprop cheat and constantly drag my vampire's energy to low during the day so they would stay in their friggin' coffins! D:<

EDIT: Will this work on Family Fun Stuff EP?

Does this font make me look fat?

Is this hack compatible with Pets?

Thankyou Monique, I find this especially good for university sims, I have redownloaded this but was wondering if you might be going to update for seasons expansion?
Thans again for your wonderful hacks including the computers and sleepcaller.

Quick question. The zip that doesn't have OFB on it, is that just for NL? I don't have OFB and was wondering if I could use this hack.

Doh.. Heck, I'll give it a shot. If it doesn't work (I have all EPs up to Pets), I'll let people know.

This sounds interesting. I have never played vamps because I thought it would take way too much micro-managing.
With these hacks, it just might work.

You know, I think we have gotten far more play value out of this game due to Monique and people like her.
Yes, maxis deserves some credit, however it is the "modders" that kept the game fresh and interesting.
I can't imagine my sims game without "custom" content!

-a year later-

so the question still lingers.
will this work on newer EP's?
i'll test this out with both versions and see what happens. will report back once i have it tested [by tomorrow]

-9 days later; evry sim in simcity has turned into ghouls and vampires! xD-

uhm. so yeah. it works fine o.O
i didn't test the OFB one but it works perfectly well on my game =]

i even made 2 whole families of vampires. xD they start burning up as soon as they step out into the sun, but its a risk they must take if they are to get to school in time. [i put my garage inside, so its no biggie for my adult vampires. and i always make sure to have a Vampirisomethingoranother-D potion and -X potion with every vampire in case they get caught by the sun in community lots xD]

Does this work for nightlife only then or do you need ofb aswell??
If you can have it with just nl that would be epic because i'm fed up of my vampires having to be in there coffins inside even when i have no windows and no lights lol.

I know it's like years later but it works fine for me, I downloaded the OFB version and I have every SP and EP except Celebrations. I didn't test it fully to make sure it's not conflicting with anything else but it is working.

thank you so much for putting that up there! I myself tend to a be a little leery on downloading anything that hasn't been commented on in a LONG time...I have almost every ep & sp (other than Holidays, dammit I WANT IT, just can't find it) so will test out as well & report back this does look very very cool. It annoys me to no end that even thou I have spent many a hour building a labrynth (sp?) of tunnels my vamps still burn up!

I just want to tell everyone that the OFB version of this hack works on my computer. I have all expansion packs up to Bon Voyage (the company that was adjusting the games for Mac quit doing it after Bon Voyage D=) and stuff packs Family Fun Stuff and Glamour Life.
I hope it also works for those of you who have been wondering and checking =D
