No More Minor Pets and Wildflowers on Regular Spawners

This is a tuning mod that removes minor pets from the rock/gem/metal spawners, insect spawners and seed spawners. The second version also removes wildflowers, and a third version only removes wildflowers from the regular spawners.



To remove the minor pets from the regular spawners, I deleted the following lines from InsectSpawner_0xe8f21baeb6829d83, RockGemMetalSpawner_0x9c9ade5ce9947224 and SeedSpawnerRarity_0x8ef62d5500ccf18d:

<kSpawnableMinorPets value="BirdLarge, BirdSmall, Lizard, Rodent, Snake, Turtle">
<!--The minor pet types this spawner can spawn if the random chance to spawn a pet is successful.-->
</kSpawnableMinorPets>.

To remove the wildflowers from the spawners, I changed the value in the Wildflower_0x3c2424d29ba417ef _XML.to 0 for

<kChanceInsectSpawnerSpawnsWildflower value="0.25">
<kChanceRGMSpawnerSpawnsWildflower value="0.25">
<kChanceSeedSpawnerSpawnsWildflower value="0.25">.

Thanks so much for the flavors on this! The small animals annoy the heck out of me, but I love the wildflowers. This is wonderfully useful!

I don't like the animals, either. I know you can sell them for money, but it isn't the same, you know? - Thanks!

Does this mean that the minor pets and wildflowers usually use up a rock/gem spawn point? Will they still spawn in their own spawn points, or will this disable them completely? I'm just wondering the full effect this will have on the game. Thanks in advance for answering!

A wonderful mod!! But for me it doesn't work, I installed the ' noflowers&nopestst' one, but my game still gets infested with wildflowers. I do have the "Nikel23 - Epic spawners" mod installed (and a million others, but they don't do much with spawners as far as I know). Could that be the problem? If so, I hope you can fix it. I'd love to have both mods running.
I play 1.63 patch, no Future EP.
Thanks!

Amber, the minor pets will still spawn on their own individual spawners, and the wildflowers will still spawn on a wildflower spawner. They will not spawn on the rock/gem/metal spawners, insect spawners or seed spawners. I believe that they do take up a spawn spot on the spawner.

Martinm, there may be some overlap in the files for this mod and the Epic spawners mod. You should try a fresh Sims 3 folder to find out.

I hate the wildflowers. Anyone can make tons of money just picking them and selling. Wildflowers are money cheat. Thanks!

Does this mod get rid of the army of chipmunks that invade my house if you rake leaves?
