This is a simple XML Tuning mod which makes it easier (or harder) for your sims to perform Legendary shows, even when you let them do the entire show autonomously.

This mod is compatible with patch levels 1.66 and 1.67

Important Details
  • This mod requires the Sims 3 Showtime Expansion Pack. Using it without Showtime should not have any effect on your game, but it will be a totally useless waste of space.
  • This mod will only affect the Acrobat, Singer, and Magician performance Careers from the Showtime Expansion Pack.
  • This mod was built with patch 1.33 and is compatible patch 1.31 and 1.32 as well. Due to its simplicity, this mod may not necessarily require an update after major patches. It’s always best to check in, though.

Compatibility
  • This mod will conflict with any other mod that alters the PerformanceMeter_0x9712ea904535f8ec resource in the GameplayData.package. I do not currently know of any other mods that do this.
  • This mod will not conflict with gesimz' Longer/Shorter Gig Times for Singers, Acrobats and Magicians, as that mod alters a different game file. You may use his mod and my mod together.
  • This mod should not conflict with any script or core mods.
  • If you are not sure if a mod will conflict with another, use Delphy’s Sims 3 Dashboard Tool to check.

Flavors
Use only one Flavor!

Autonomous Gigs
Removes penalties for Autonomous and Repeat interactions. All other factors are unchanged.

Better Gigs
This flavor will increase Gig performance for all performers, but especially for performers at the max career level, and for performers who have the Engaging (Lifetime Happiness Reward) and Natural Born Performer traits.
  • Penalty removed for repeat interactions.
  • Skill multiplier bonus increased by 1 at max level for all 3 performance careers.
  • Engaging trait (LTH Reward) bonus doubled (increased from .05 to .1)
  • Natural Performer trait bonus increased to .20 (up from .15)
  • Venue bonus for Big Show venues increased to .5 (same as Private Venues, up from 0)
  • Penalty for Autonomous interactions removed (original: .8 negative multiplier for autonomous interactions)

Harder Gigs
This mod makes it harder for a show to have a legendary rating by upping the penalties for autonomous and repeat interactions and by increasing the threshold for legendary performances.
  • Increases threshold for Legendary Shows to .90 (up from .85) for all three performance careers.
  • Penalty for Repeat interactions increased to .6 (up from .5).
  • Penalty for Autonomous interactions increased to .90 (up from .80).

More Legendary Gigs
All career levels should have an easier time performing legendary gigs with this flavor.
  • Penalty removed for repeat interactions.
  • Skill multiplier bonus increased by 1 for all career levels (except level 10) for all 3 performance careers. Level 10 skill multiplier increased by 1.5
  • Engaging trait (LTH Reward) bonus increased to .2 (up from .05)
  • Natural Performer trait chance to ignore mistakes/negative updates increased to .95 (up from .8)
  • Natural Performer trait bonus increased to .25 (up from .15)
  • Venue bonus for Big Show venues increased to .5 (same as Private Venues, up from 0)
  • Penalty for Autonomous interactions removed (original: .8 negative multiplier for autonomous interactions)
  • Initial starting bonus based on career level increased by .1 for all career levels and all performance careers.

If you would like your own flavor, please ask.
