"ROCK HAMMER" GUITAR (Seasons) usable
with Atavera's CUSTOM INSTRUMENTS HACK
(Object Mod - UNI+SSN Required)


IMPORTANT - This hack is no longer needed, because it is now
part of the main Custom Instruments Hack v.4.1. Please remove the file:
"Numenor_GlobalMod_SSN-Guitar-for-Atavera-Hack.package"
from your Downloads and use use the C.I.H. v.4.1 instead.

WARNING: This is an Object Mod, meaning that it affects *all* the Rock Hammer guitars in *all* your neighborhoods.
If you export a lot containing the Rock Hammer guitar, this Mod will be exported too (always clean your lots with the Clean Installer!); also, if you clone the Rock Hammer guitar, this Mod will be included in your clone (to prevent this, be sure to *uncheck* the Downloads folder from SimPE's file table).


WHY THIS MOD?
Who uses Atavera's "Custom Instruments Hack" can't use the Rock Hammer guitar (the new guitar that comes with Seasons as a career reward), because the interactions just drop out of the queue. This Mod is intended as an "extension" of Atavera's hack, to allow playing the Rock Hammer guitar alone, or as a member of a band (with either Maxis or custom instruments).

GAME REQUIREMENTS
This Mod requires Seasons, of course; and Atavera's hack, in turn, needs University. Therefore, both University AND Seasons are required.
Also, Atavera's "Custom Instruments Hack" is required (actually, using this Mod is just pointless without the Custom Instruments Hack).

INSTALLATION
Unpack the attached file to your Downloads folder; remove the installed package to uninstall.

CREDITS
Atavera, for the BHAVs needed for custom instruments to work (BHAV included in this Mod); Maxis for the original Rock Hammer guitar.

REDISTRIBUTION POLICY
This mod uses Atavera's BHAVs, which are in the public domain; therefore, unlike most of my creations, you can freely clone and modify this Mod. But mind that this is an Object Mod (as defined above): if you post your clone anywhere, you are responsible for any problem it might cause to users.

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

The amplifiers are part of the Rock Hammer guitar, they are included in SSN: don't you see them when you get the guitar?

It doesn't work with Atavera's hack; but in normal conditions, it works...
I just wanted to clear up this, because Maxis code has already many bugs, and adding fake alarms is useless :P

It should be compatible with buyable one (unless the buyable hack was poorly created...); however, please check yourself and let me know (in case of problem, please post a link to the buyable guitar hack, because I couldn't find it...)

I didn't know there was a guitar in Seasons, this is great to have a guitar without having UNI even if I can't use the hack.

Thank you so much!!!!! None of my Sims already reached the top of the music carreer, so I didn't notice the rock hammer guitar wouldn't work with the CI hack, but you just spared me a lot of headaches ^^ - even if I had found it out by myself, it would've been a disaster to either remove the CI hack (God, it's unlikely to have a NH full of JRock-Sims and everyone uses the same guitar oO, and I can NOT let Yoshiki play on that ordinary Maxis piano xD) OR not use the guitar <.<
So... THANK YOU!!!

Does this mod also works with the Atavera's guitars?

Yes, this guitar is clearly labeled as "usable with Atavera's Custom Instruments hack", so it can used with any other custom instrument by Atavera.

SandTiger: that is not an error, it's just a worning that the guitar overrides a game file. The guitar is supposed to do that, because it's an "extracted" object.

Grintwig: It should. I didn't check myself, though.
