As per request, here is another global mod that may help movie makers: no more stars running around the head when a sim gets slapped in his/her face!
The slaps will still hurt, though!

I read a post where some creative mind called you the "Modfather". The name fits.
Thanks, you've done it again. :D

Thanks this is really nice but would be nice in all if you can slap the sims and not look like how the stars slap in the 1950's movies!!!

Other than that it's hot!! :D

Thanks for fulfilling this, Numenor! Now we can see more realistic slaps in our wonderful Sims movies (because I'm a HUGE fan of those).

Although I don't mind the stars. To me it's now funnier without them. Thanks. You Rock!

I don't mind the stars, too, but I see that movie makers want to have this mod. For those purposes it's really great! And it's an advantage to have a choice! Thanks!

Thank you! I think this was the last big issue movie makers had with the cartoony-above-head-symbols. A lot of us will be thankfull, and I can bet we will see your name pop up in credits for this one soon.

And I also thank you as a sim movie watcher, as those stars could easilly distract me from the movie.
