tuning
The tuning package contains two XML resources for tunables and an XML resource for the basic availability of the interactions. Except for the latter one, there is no documentation, but the names should be mostly self-explaining. If you're able to do tuning/XML modding, just skip this and do your shtick. If you're new to to this, get yourself S3PE and read the instructions. It will work with other package editors as well of course, but I will only explain it for S3PE.



translation
Wherever possible, I used already existing and localized strings; new strings are fully localizable. If you are willing to support a translation, please read the instructions.

Disclaimer: I consider my mods to be free as free beer, copyleft - all right reversed, whatever you may call it. I expect the same from your translation! If you are not okay with this, then don't support a translation! If you already supported a translation and are not okay with this, tell me and I will pull it.

Currently supported languages: English, Spanish, Finnish, French, German, Brazilian, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Norwegian, Dutch, Japanese, Swedish, Russian, Czech, Korean



legal stuff

possible conflicts
This is a scripting mod and as such the possibility for conflicts with other mods, no matter what kind, is next to non-existant. Other scripting mods that replace interactions might tangle with this mod, though. I've implemented safeguards for the cases I know. Heads Up! If you check this mod in Delphy's Dashboard, it may show a conflict with my other mods. You can ignore that. It's by design, i.e. some of my mods share one framework resource. It will actually conflict in the sense that the game will only load one instance of that resource. That's the whole point, though.

installation
Please follow Game_Help:Installing_Sims_3_Package_Fileswiki. I can't explain it any better than that. Seriously, I won't even try even if you ask me.

deinstallation
Do NOT just rip this mod out! If one of the interactions of this mod is currently running when you save your game, you may become unable to load your savegame without this mod!

This mod contains a lot of autonomous interactions, so even if you make sure that none of your active sims currently perform one of the interactions, there's still a very high chance that a townie is performing one.

Prior to deinstallation, reset all sims in town by opening the console with Ctrl-Shift-C and using "ResetSim *" (without the quotes). Alternatively use twallan's ErrorTrap mod which will drop all "illegal" interactions upon load.

support
I support my mods. I appreciate bug reports. I don't support mods or custom content in general. It's not an issue with a mod if it doesn't even show up in the game.

It worked fine for me on 1.63, but it seems to break AwesomeMode (maybe not the whole Awesome, but some parts of it). I have my Awesome set to autosave the game every 60 minutes, and it worked, only prior to installing this mod. Upon installing this mod, that functionality seems to be broken (I played the game for 2 hours straight and the autosaving function doesn't work). And judging by the others posts, I'm pretty sure there's many more things that I missed (broken functionalities).

This has happened before, mostly with outdated mods, conflicting with new or updated mods. I hope Buzz can find some time to update this gem. It's very important as I don't like to click on the Sims lots of time just to interact with them. Until this mod is updated, I'm going to have to remove it, unfortunately.

Just wanted to say that this Mod is amazing, especially for the "Work Overtime" and "Work For Three Hours" interaction. I used it about a year ago and have been looking for it for a long time! Thank you

I remember once I asked for ingredients at the diner and they didn't give it to me. I owned every place in town so I fired Jared Frio. Went back in and they gave me the ingredients! XD Thanks for making this mod! I can't download it cause it's not patched

Buzz, does it matter that Moar and Take Home Foods show up as conflicted on Dashboard? I'm sure its no big deal and I'll still use them both - just thought I'd ask

Default Can't get sim Pregnant
Seems weird, but since adding your mod to my game, my sim won't get pregnant. I have some of the Nraas mods. including woohooer. I even set the "try for a bay" chance to 100%. As soon as I reset the town, removed the mod, and restarted the game, she found out she was pregnant within seconds.

Thanks

Just you need the first one.

Tuning file is required when you want to customize how the mod should run.

I've always had issues with the macros - I downloaded your latest version of the file in the hopes that it would fix, but nothing's happened. the result is, that I can't get my sims to socialise at all; without removing all the mods in the folder; which is greatly inconvenient. Being unable to socialise means that I can't play any adventures with my adventurer sim, and that's very awkward.

Can anyone give me advice to get this mod to work fully? I was so excited when I'd first come across it last year, but it's never worked for me =<

Do your sims have any dirty laundry in their inventory? With this mod you have to have a hamper on the home lot so your sims can generate dirty clothes, then you have to collect all the laundry, once its in the sims inventory you can go to the laundromat and wash clothes.

I'm having some problems with the Socialize - Romantic macro. My sim invites her boyfriend to her home, and when they do the woohoo interaction, it breaks their date and she gets the "rude guest" moodlet. Then if she tries to do anything romantic after that, he reacts negatively.

I've been using this mod for a long time and love the features. It has always been my experience that the various "Socialize" options have to be initiated by the user.

Suddenly, just in the last couple days, my Sim has been autonomously selecting one of the Socialize options. Usually it's Friendly, and I've just cancelled it. But just now she chose Mean for a Sim she'd never met before.

I haven't installed any new mods or made any changes lately that I can think that might cause this. It's possible it was present before, but this was the first time I'd seen it. It's only happened about 3-4 times in the course of playing several hours a day for the last week. So it's hard for me to test it to figure out what the problem is. I'm also only playing with a single Sim. I'm worried about starting a family with her, and while not watching one of my Sims they might go off and do something really stupid.

Was the Socialize option meant to be something the Sim could initiate?

Thank you very much for this mod. I've been very cautious when it comes to adding mods to my game in order to avoid breaking too much, but this looks too interesting!

One newbie question: I've been toying around with Twallan's Retuner and I've found a 'Sims3.TwoBTech' entry there which I can use to tune your 'Box of seeds', but for the live of me I cannot find the tuning file for this package in there? Should this package be tunable that way (I have the tuning package itself installed)? Or is the only way to tune it using S3PE?
