*NO* JITTERS AFTER ESPRESSO / *BIG* JITTERS AFTER ESPRESSO
(Use only ONE at a time!)


02 MAR 2008: UPDATE + BUGFIX for "No Jitters":
  • "No Jitters" mod updated to work with FreeTime; now drinking coffee correctly generates enthusiasm for the Cuisine hobby.
  • Removed a bug that occurred in Seasons: drinking coffee didn't warm up the sims.
  • Removed the jitters from the three more objects: Coffee Machine (base game), Espresso Cart (University) and Modern Coffee Machine (FreeTime).

Please note that the "Big Jitters" mod has NOT been updated nor fixed: it would have required a much bigger work and frankly - being it a nothing more than a joke - it wasn't worthwhile; therefore, the "Big Jitters" mod still prevents coffee from generating enthusiasm or warming up the sims.

These mods work in any game

1) *NO* Jitters After Espresso

I have to thank Daysies for having requested this global hack, because I've been wanting to do it for a long time, but I always had something else to do...

As an Italian, I drink quite a lot of espresso (more or less, 5 cups a day), and I never (repeat: *never*) had that Parkinson-like "shaking" side effect.

Therefore, here is a global hack to get rid of the jitters that affect the sims every time they take an espresso.

This global hack is considered finished (no more in testing): I've personally tested it in several different games, from the base game to FreeTime, but caution is always advisable when dealing with global hacks.

To prove that the hack works, I provide a screenshot: as you can see, the sim is perfectly standing still!!!

----------------------------------------------------

2) *BIG* Jitters After Espresso

First off, let me state clearly that the "BIG Jitters" hack is not compatible with the "NO Jitters" hack: you can have ONLY ONE at the same time! That's why I'm posting it here instead of creating a new thread.

While creating the "NO Jitters" hack, I thought that it would be fun to see what would happened if the sims would have suffered for double intensity jitters after a coffee, and so tried this hack. Well, it IS funny! Not particularly realistic, but funny
The "BIG Jitters After Espresso" hack is the result of my try: it *doubles* the shakings of the sims after they got their espresso.

Shake, rattle and roooooooooooooooll! :mdance:

No, by drinking one. You really can't see it on anything faster then the first (slowest) speed. The first few times you see it, it's kind of funny XD

Thanks so much for adding the coffee machine - I've had this mod for ages, no jitters from the espresso machine, but when this sim needed just a coffee... Made me wonder what else he'd added to it

Please don't PM/IM me with requests

I used to avoid having my Sims drink coffee due to those jitters. Now they can drink away without looking like they're about to have a seizure.
