A Mod That Changes The Urinating Behavior of Male Sims In A Good Way So That They Become More Considerate When Using The Toilets
One thing I did not understand is why EA/Maxis made all the male sims so inconsiderate when they use the toilet. When I play the game, I have to constantly listen to those irritating urine noise that the male sims generated. They all urinate like we were deaf, their urine noise is as loud as the TV. I have been tolerating these noises for too long, and was hoping that someone would come up with a mod to get rid of it. In The Sims or Sims 1, EA did not do that, all male sims in Sims 1 use the toilet quietly and politely. I guess EA want Sims 2 to mimic real life, but then even in real life, we don’t hear someone else's urine noise when the bathroom door is closed or when we are in a different room. We would hear it when we use public toilets, I was always embarrassed by my own sound and am always try to control the flow to keep the noise down.
Smonaff made a mod called ‘No Xylophone Sound When Peeing’ to get rid of the boys’ urine sound, he did not continue to make another mod to get rid of the sound from other age groups. Sneakykatze82 had the following quote on May 4, 2012, 10:27AM, post #30. I couldn’t agree with him (or her) more, so I made a mod just for that.
|….And personally, I'd like to take all of the pee sounds out, I don't need to hear a stream of urine to realize what is happening.|
In Smonaff’s ‘No Xylophone Sound’ mod, he achieved it by deleting the sound reference file, however, I took a different approach, instead of deleting the sound reference file, I worked on the male behavior, my mod direct the male sims to sit down when they use the toilet, by sitting down, they now pee quietly and don’t make noise anymore.
This is a global mod, it changes the behavior of all male sims of all age groups when they interact with all maxis toilets and recolors, and all custom toilets and recolors, on all lots and in all neighborhoods. One tiny file can do all that, how nice! The only toilet that was not affected is the urinal.
My mod has been playtested extensively in my game and in another person’s game, it is compatible with all EPs, i.e. you can have any combination EPs all the way to AL. I expect it will work in the base game only too (i.e. without any EP) because the male sims’ urinating behavior has not changed since the base game, although I could not test it myself. I could not use Numenor’s AnygameStarter mod because my game is not compatible with his mod.
Download Instruction: Unzip the package file and put it in the normal downloads folder. Nice and simple!
Uninstall Instruction: Just remove the file and your male sims will use the toilets standing and make noise again.
Mod Parameter: BHAV-interaction, 0x2005, so if your mod touches that line, it will conflict with mine.
Credit: and its developers, GIMP, various tutorials on MTS and elsewhere on the internet, the most helpful ones are Rebecah’s, Echo’s, Carrigon’s, and TheNinthWave’s. I would also like to thank alanqlowell for additional testing my mod in his game, the unknown moderator for the feedback, and Whiterider for suggesting a better title for this page.
Thank you for viewing, enjoy and happy simming.
