Hack/Mod #4

Now a MUCH smaller size! Thanks Carrigon!
Please remove the other hacks before you use these.
nomourn_<aspiration>.package

As requested by: Christineee.
I give you a No Autonomous Mourning. Sims will (should) no long Mourn their passed-on loved ones by themselves, only if you choose the "Mourn" action on the Urn/Tombstone.

Place in Downloads folder.
They will over right the old Tombstones/Urn.
I killed off Brandi Broke, sold every item except her Urn and locked Dustin (or whatever his name is) in the room, with full relationship points. He didn't mourn her at the Grave/Urn, but did cry liek you'd expect.

conker,

Beta Testers is for getting other people to test things on thier machines and with thier configurations AFTER you have tested it yourself.

It is not used as a dumping ground to say "Hey I did this but I have no clue if it works and I'm too lazy to test it myself...."

Please reply ASAP with results of testing or the thread gets deleted.

Thanks.

I was surprised to see that this hack file size is so big. When I downloaded it I see that there's separate files for each aspiration, and when I load one in SimPE it looks like they are objects with catalog descriptions of tombstones. It's interesting. Why did you need files for each aspiration -- are there separate tombstone objects for each aspiration in the game? I'm assuming that these override existing objects in the game, right?

Did you clone the objects, keep the id intact (so it would override) then modify the bhavs?

Anyway, looks cool; I'll use them because I find automous morning irritating. Thanks a lot!

I have never had anyone die on me yet (I play with aging off) so this will be a good back up for when I decide to turn aging back on and get tired of all the mourning and it gets old.

Dolphin - When a sim dies while in platinum, a special headstone is put into place w/ the aspiration symbol on it. That's my only guess as to why there are many files in this hack. If a sim dies while in red, gold, or green, I think they just get a blank headstone. I know this because of the Legacy Challenge and you get points based on what kind of tombstone you get.

Conker - I'm guessing these will override the tombstones in the game. Can you confirm?

(P.S. This is my 1,000th post! HUZZAH! I am a scholar!)

Yay! I'm rather privileged to have your 1000th post on my thread :D
Yeah, they will over right the old Tombstones, Old Sims who dies in Gold/Platinum aspiration I supposed to have a Gravestone with their Aspiration type on it, I rally don’t know. If someone confirms that they don’t then I will remove the other stones.

[Edit]After reading the last post then it does happen, so I'll keep them in.

Question - I've heard elsewhere that you get ghosts more often if you don't mourn your Sims, and then I've also heard that you get them more often if you DO. Anyone know which it is? I've killed off Townies and no one mourned and their ghosts showed up a lot, but my one dead elder, mourned a couple times, hasn't shown up as a ghost at all yet after 20-odd Sim days. I was wondering if this affected it at all.

As long as you Mourn them on your own then your Ghost's shouldn't come out. I really don't know, to be honest...

Ghosts are tied to memories of those who remember them. If you want to try to trigger more frequent ghosts, go into SimPE and make sure there are memories of having met the ghost before it died, becoming friends with the ghost before death, you can add all kinds of memories. Do it for both the living and the dead. Then make sure the living person has a memory of the dead one. It seemed to trigger it for me when I couldn't get a ghost to show up.

Hmmmm. Well, this was an elder who was living as a roommate with a single dad and his toddler. She stayed home to take care of the toddler and got very close with both of them. She died when the kid was a teen. The father still lives on the lot, though the kid has since grown up and moved out, and he still has plenty of memories of her. I've never, ever seen her ghost. I only let the father mourn her a couple times because I thought that would keep the ghost from showing. Bleh...

This is a very good and very much needed hack since all my NPCs kept mourning over my sims and not doing their work when it was needed. Keep up the good work! :thumb:

Just a quick question, has anyone confirmed that Sims who die with Gold/Platinum have a different stone? I have several who died platinum and their gravestones are much larger and white, with a Sims aspiration logo in gold. I'm trying to be certain that I don't have another hidden mod in my game somewhere.

Yep, that's what supposed to happen. Happy (Gold/Platinum) Sim's die with a really nice Gravestone...

I have very few dead Sims in my game, but yes Sims that have all their aspirations fullfilled get special gravestones. My Sim named Carmela Royale, I specially fullfilled all her wishes in the last minutes she lived, she died totally platinium and got a very beautiful grave (knowledge). My other dead couple (The oldies) never showed up as ghosts though they left two adoptive sons. I moved in two of the children Herb Oldie got with another female and Herb started to show up as ghost every night. No signs of Coral up now.

This is kind of an old thread, but if you go into SimPE and find your ghosts, you can change their behavior.

It seemed to me that if the only thing checked was "is a ghost", they didn't show up. Then when I check all of them, they show up more often. I have a lot full of graves which I intend to turn into my haunted mansion and NONE were mourned and have hauntings all the time...and they were all strangers.

Anyway, I should be coming back to modding once my exams are out of the way.
