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!

So far its working great! Nina and hubby summoned the spirits and had her make a new black boyfriend while Don Lothorio (her other lover) and her vampire girlfriend were all there with her hubby. Hubby has found the one to bring into the relationship (I have built them this really awesome house... seperate wings for each family... hes a beautiful romance sim whos secondary aspiration is family... hes already made a gorgeous sim with Dina Caliente as well. Her name is Kina. Nina and Dina HATED each other over this guy. But I she just happened to be walking by to tip the trash can over and I had Him greet Dina, smooth talk her and she forgave him and Nina didnt get upset when they were flirting or kissing.)

Id say its working great! All of my other lots work fine at this point. Im backing up some games now just in case it changes to global or crashes somehow, like some of you have expierenced.

Hi everybody,
After a long time of NOT playing TS2 at all nor being involved with the hacking stuff anymore, I stopped by here today just by chance. Reading all the replies to Magical Keumungo ranging over a time as long as three years I feel a bit guilty for not caring anymore and that I never have been checking this thread in order to give support or answer your questions at least. Sorry for that.
Due to certain circumstances in my real live I had not been able to continue to work on hacks or mods for the Sims 2.
Now after all this time I don't feel like start it all over again. To be honest, I forgot almost everything about TS2 hacking and how to use the tools. It would be a big effort for me to learn and get into those things again. I hope you understand that.
Nevertheless I am very happy to see that my mod has been helpful for a lot of people.
So all I can say for now is goodbye and have a good time everybody!
(Maybe some day you will meet me on the TS3 forums. I am just starting to learn how to write Mods for TS3)
Greetz to everyone - Flyby

first of all thanks for this object! it's really usefull, and I have been using mine for a while and worked really well... but now it seems I have lost all jealousy in the game. In houses where there is no Keumongo still I get no jealousy whatsoever. I don't complain much really but I was wondering if anyone else is having the same problem. I have most of the eps.

Sorry, but I can't help you...
Since I am now into Sims 3 coding (as some of you might have noticed) I have no more chance to test things in The Sims 2 game. Actually the game has been deinstalled from my computer long time ago and all the modding tools I had used and even the know-how to handle these tools is gone.
So I am no longer able to support this Mod.

I would guess ISC means 'InSim Compatible':

I would guess that 'The Insimenator' by Eric doesn't exist anymore... cause this is what ISC really means (compatible with the Insimenator). At least I didn't see it anymore, for some time...

And other words if you having problems do not use it at all. The creator have move on to do more damage for Sims 3. I do not trust these new modders if it is not Pescado, Numenor, or Twojeffs you are taking a chance they always test their mods on every Eps. So back up your game, before adding any mods. Sorry I must say the truth here.

Thanks for the anti-jealousy mod. It works great for my neighborhood full of custom romantic sims. Now anyone can make out/have relationships with anyone while their significant other does not care at all ,lol. It makes my romantic sims reach their full potentail as romancers. Even my townies are customized romantics. I was so sick and tired of the other sims getting angry just because they batted an eye. I have one in every house in my town and also on community lots. Now this is the way any romantic neighborhood should be. Fantastic job and thanks for all the hard work you put into it.
