BFFCorrection now corrects;
English (UK)
and apparently Hungarian although I really don't remember typing anything in for it. If its wrong please let me know.

If you wish to provide translations then please contact me in THIS thread.

Hello fellow Simmers. Are you as sick of the multitude of "Made first BFF" memories as I am? I don't mind them making BFFs, just the fact that they are all the first.
This package alters the text that shows for the memory.

Players who run the game in English and would like my rewrite, shown below, should download 'BFFMemoryFix'.

Players who simply wish to have the original EAXIS text corrected should download 'MM_BFFCorrectionV3'.

I hope this package helps to restore some of your own and your Sims' sanity.

To recap; these packages remove the "Made first BFF" memory and replace it with "Made a BFF". With either of these package installed Sims will still gain the BFF memories as regularly as normal. Only the text is altered.

Please do not upload to any other sites.

I wonder why I do? Ah well, at least if others have it too they can fix it as well. I patched my game and it never fixed it.

Would this interfere with Squinge "no duplicate memory" hack? I know it has not been updated since NL but I still use it succesfully.

Great, I was so sick of the BFF spam. Thanks for this!

This shouldn't cause any conflicts with anything that prevents duplicate memories as this is merely a text alteration. With just this hack installed you will still receive the BFF memories as regularly as normal but the text will never say "first BFF".

Um, sorry. I can only speak English and I don't know how to make it compatible with other languages.

Make best friends with a Sim and then keep that relationship level for a few days. Pretty easy really. This may be stating the obvious but you need Free Time installed as well.

Yes. The only requirement is Freetime. Who mentioned Apartment Life?
