Magical Keumungo for TS2 and EP - now compatible with Insimenator!
-------------------------------------------------
Update version 1.02 : See describtion below
-------------------------------------------------

The Magical Keumungo is here! A hacked Object to switch jealousy on and off within the game.
This hacked Object has got its very own sounds! I managed to apply OWN SOUNDS (produced in my recording studio) to the object, which took a lot to make it work.
This is the first hack I 've ever done. It's also my first contribution to the community and I want to say a big Thanks to all of you who made these objects, meshes and recolors... free for everybody. In todays world where capitalism rules life on this planet, I appreciate this very much.
As a professional musician the idea of illustrating the actions of my object with sounds came naturally. It's more "lively" and tickles one's phantasie.


Welcome to the secrets of ancient tibet!
This is the Magic Keumungo, a mysterious instrument, found in a old monastery where it had been kept for ages locked in a hidden chamber. Only special members of the Sim-buddistic brotherhood were allowed to take care of the holy instrument. Those monks - mostly Sim-Lamas - were enjoying the great honor of being a "Guardian of Tolerance". When their time had come they passed the legacy into the hands of another young fellow. This tradition went on from generation to generation...
The Magic Keumungo is more than just a musical instrument. It carries magical powers. The holder of the Keumungo was able to manipulate the behavior of all people staying in the monastery. He could call the spirits of Tolerance to create a peaceful atmosphere. He could also release the demons of jealousy to weaken the vunarable social balance of the community which would bring conflict, terror and doom...



How it works:
The Keumungo works for each household independently. When you switch to "Tolerance" all members of the household will remain in that state until you switch back to (normal) jealous behavior.
Sims who live in other households will not be affected unless they have their own Keumungo. Assuming you have several Keumungos in several houses, members of each household will be jealous or not, according to the state of their Keumungo. If you remove a Keumungo from a household the selected state will continue.
The only problem that I have seen so far appears when you have a visitor. If (1) the behavior is switched to "Tolerance" before the visitor arrives and (2) the visitor is in love with one of the residents and (3) this Sim has at least one other lover amoung the members of the household, it can happen that the Sims show jealous behavior even though the Keumungo has been set to "Tolerance".

What is new in version 1.02 ?
The Magical Keumungo is now fully compatible with all versions of Erics Insimenator up to Insimenator 1.2 EP. That is to say, there are two versions of the Keumungo now: One cooperates with the Insimenator while the other one is a stand-alone version which you should use in case you don't have the Inimenator installed. For more information see the installation-notes inside the RAR-file!
Note: The newer Insimenator-UV-versions are NOT compatible!

Bug-fix:
when you erased the Keumungo from your household while having set the switch to (call the spirits of...) Tolerance and then installed a new Keumungo in the same household, the pie menu in the new Keumungo shows: "Call the spirits of Tolerance" although your Sims are still in the state of Tolerance. This would lead to confusion because in this case the Keumungo v.1.01 worked in the opposite way as intended (when you called tolerance Sims got jealous and vice versa).
To avoid this now, in v.1.02 whenever you install a new Keumungo all Sims on the lot are being reset to (normal) jealousy-behavior.


If you still notice any strange behavior in the game or anything that may be caused by the Magic Keumungo, please let me know. Make a reply to this thread, PM me or send me an e-mail.


NOTE:

DON'T CHANGE THE NAME OF THE "MaKeSound.package"! (the soundfile that comes with the Keumungo in the RAR-archive)
THE OBJECT WILL NOT WORK ANYMORE!


Have fun and let me know what you think of it!

Default problem
I don't know if I missed this somewhere or not but I am having problems. I downloaded and put the files in my download folder. I know this is an object but how do I get it in the household? I can't seem to find the object. I am running Uni and nightlife. Is it me or is it not compatible with nightlife?

All have all EP's up to OFB and FFS.
I had this before and loved it so I thought I'd give it a test and see.

For those looking for the object, it is under Decorative Items. Click the 'All' symbol and it will be in the $80 range in the catalog.

I bought one and placed it in one of my dorms where I've been having some 3-way drama going on. I Called the Spirits of Tolerance and then had the three YA's (two girls and a boy) all go round and round in front of each other, kissing and flirting and hugging and it was all good.

But, and I don't know exactly what happened, I kept that going on for about three days with everyone just doing whatever until one of the girlfriends had a party. She was pillow fighting with her best friend and all of the sudden the boyfriend was Furious with her.
I cannot find any cheating icons and he got over it really quick (at least when compared to the other girlfriend that had broken off an engagement with him).

If Sims can get furious at another Sim for causing a puddle by being HIT with a water balloon, then I think I know what happened. :D
The girlfriend had just gotten hit right before and he was cleaning up the puddle when he went Furious.
I didn't think of that until this morning. At the time I assumed it was a glitch with the Jealousy control so I turned off the Keumungo and deleted it from the lot.
Could it have been the puddle? If so, that's my first time seeing a Sim get Furious at another Sim because of it.
I really do hope that's it as this is an awesome hack! I love the custom music it plays too!

I was using it with Pets and OFB just fine, and then I installed Seasons. Unfortunately, I am not seeing this lovely item available as a custom option anymore.

I miss it already!

Same here, and the Bon Voyage upgrade didn't change things. Any chance this fine fine object will be upgraded for new expansion packs?

Okay, I'm new to using mods and I've looked on this website for an answer to my question and still can't find it. I want this mod, but I don't have an official version of the game, I have the extra/back up that comes with the game - will this mod work, or do I have to have a copy of sims2 of my own? I'm afraid that installing a mod will make the version I have stop working.

Cool beans! I have been waiting for this forever! I have tons of problems with jealousy because I have this one guy Sim that is a Romantic and a pimp, so he basically tries to Make Out and/or WooHoo with every girl in town. But they all get jealous. So, thanks! Lol

Inappropriate behavior makes me giggle :)

I am having a slight problem in that ALL jealousy is turned off, not just one household.
Other mods I have:
Teleport anywhere
Larger sim families v2
Mannequin babies can be born
Toddler bob fix
No autonomous computer game playing
I think that’s it, yours is the only object mod

I also cannot find this mod in the game. I'm using basic game, night life, and apartment life. Any suggestions?

I'm using all EPs except ApartementLife and Mansion&Gardens Ministuff, and I also can't find this thing in my game. Makes me very sad, I was looking such a long time for a possibility to make my sims kind of jealous ...

I'm running all 8 eps and it's still in deco wall right next to the original keumungo for $80. And the thing still works, maybe too well. I originally got it for one of my females in a long-term relationship with two guys (why should she have to choose?) There is occasionally some drama in the background at the clubs around some of the romance sims but mostly there is no jealousy in my 'hood, husbands smooching on a third party right in front of their wives with no reaction and I only have it in 4 of 28 lots plus one vacant. I'm getting ready to zip it up for awhile because I got the Trellisor Special Wedding Arch From MATY, gonna finally get my trio legal before they die.

i've got the same problem with the keumungo. it started behaving like a global mod shortly after i installed the file (not sure what ep that was) and now i have all the xp's and ep's, and it still squashes all jealousy reactions. i have to take it out of downloads to get my sims to slap each other, lol.

i don't know anything about modding, so i can't fix it.

A day late and a dollar short - that's me.
