2/10/2012 - Brazilian Portugese and French versions removed. No longer supporting other languages. Sorry. :/
19/09/2012 - Updated to version 1.38/Supernatural, French and Brazilian Portuguese translations added. 1.38 compatability tested, translation testing required.
08/06/2012 - Made and tested with version 1.34


Inspired by Uglydemon's nectar renaming mod , I found myself inspired to fix an equally frustrating quirk of the game. I've always wanted to feel slightly uncomfortable with my vampires, and this simple STBL tweak makes just that change.



This mod changes most instances of 'plasma' in the game to 'blood'.

Plasma -> Blood
Plasma Fruit -> Blood Fruit
Plasma Juice -> Blood Juice
Plasma Pack -> Blood Pack/Blood Bag

The Bridgeport vampire lounge Plasma 501, the PlasmaPunch Gyroscopic Conductor, and some mentions of a plasma cannon in the military (I think) career track are unaffected. EA formatting has been kept, even though sometimes I wanted to drop capitals.

This mod comes in two versions, because I couldn't decide if it was better to change plasma packs to blood bags, or to stay otherwise true to the game and call them 'packs'. So it's up to you. Personally I thought that the hospital keeping its plasma in drink cartons was just asking for trouble.

Only download one version as they are not compatible. That said, why you'd want both is beyond me.

Compatibility
As far as I can tell, it should not conflict with anything else except mods that change the same strings of text. Though as this is my first mod, do let me know if you find conflicts.

This mod should continue to work after an update provided that EA doesn't modify how strings are ordered internally (which isn't likely), or until they add more lines of text that mention plasma. Therefore, you can assume this mod will continue to work after an update unless it's a massive one that breaks everything ever.

Languages
Currently only in English. I'm willing to provide versions for other languages, but I currently do not know how to make them work in game. The mod will remain in English only until someone's feeling generous enough to help me out. Sorry, but I tried.

Requirements
Obviously, requires Late Night or Supernatural. I doubt using this mod without them would break anything, but why would you?

Additional Credits:
My thanks go again to Uglydemon for the inspiration and for teaching me how to make such a mod!

If you wanted to release a version where you dropped some of their ridiculous capitals, I wouldn't complain. Of course, since you've already done multiple versions, I wouldn't complain if you didn't. (:

Heh, definitely makes me feel less childish when I see vampires drinking "plasma" from their victims (why would a vampire need to drink blood cell suspension fluid? D

Why did they change it to Plasma anyway? Who thought the word blood was inappropriate? Has anyone ever avoided using the word blood?

@Thnkr0917: the Fox censors did something similiar for the most part when airing the '90s Spiderman cartoon (the character Morbius the Living Vampire didn't drink blood, he drank plasma - which was silly in the extreme, especially when they had no problem mentioning blood in a normal sense, just not when dealing with Morbius's eating habits)

that being said, I'm intrigued by this mod - may download it at some point. Looks intriguing :D

I considered it, but considering how simple a mod this is I thought it would be silly and a little too much to be offering four different versions. So just decided to keep the odd caps. Can totally understand your frustration. I'd be tempted to spend a weekend fixing the entire game's formatting if it wouldn't conflict with every other string tweak.

Simply what it's called. It's the object that vampire sims can drink from, and that they'll steal when raiding the hospital. The actual object looks like a red drinks carton, but I knew that some people would prefer to drop that nonsense and simply call it a blood bag, like hospitals use. All we need now is someone to replace the in-game object with a blood bag, eh? :P

To be honest, I'm new to this type of modding myself and just didn't want to rule other languages out. I'd imagine you can translate by commenting here or PMing me with:
The language you're translating,
What EAxis uses in-game (plasma, plasma pack, plasma fruit, plasma juice)
and the translated words (blood, blood pack, blood bag, blood fruit, blood juice)

Meanwhile, I'll try and work out if I'm going about this the right way.

Just a shot in the dark here, but calling it something other than blood may be to circumvent the proscription against ingesting blood found in certain religions. ? Maybe? Dunno. Anyway THANKS SO MUCH can't wait to install this. All about the realism over here.

Someone should make a mod that would replace the childish plasma packs with real blood bags! Those from the hospital. That would fit perfectly with this awesome mod!

The 'Blood Bag' correction reminds me of Lorena in True Blood (that's what she calls humans xD). This correction mod is great. Plasma may be IN the blood, but it ISN'T blood,it's a totally different thing. Anyway, i'm glad this mod exists to straighten things up.

I think it logically makes sense that it is plasma since.... you know, the vampires are acknowledged among the Sims world as equal citizens. Society would be studying a cure to FORCE upon vampires if they were running around hunting and stealing blood packs from the hospital if they were THAT out of control. This isn't more realistic, at least plasma explains how they work within society so well.

I aint got anything against this mod, I in fact am glad people can have this, but I am against stupid useless "excuses" like "it's more realistic"... Especially when it is wrong :l

Downloaded it and works perfectly. The term 'Blood Juice' bugs me a little cause you know how can blood be juice but still it is better than 'plasma juice'. If it was renamed as just 'Blood' it would be great but again it's still good.

Blood juice sounds so nasty, which I like because I'm sure it's not the first choice of drink for humans or vampires!

i think i may have discovered a glitch... i made a vampire and instead of her favorite food showing up as O-positive, it showed up as 'hot dogs'. lol

i removed the mod and now it shows up as O-positive again, and then put it back in, and it stayed O-positive. so i guess it isn't an issue then. xD just wanted to let you know though. this is a great mod, one step closer to True Blood! <3

Give thanks for unknown blessings already on their way.
