I like the idea of perfume added in Nightlife but the way it works never made me happy.

Actually, I'm too lazy or too poor to buy one bottle for $125 and use it only once!

I've found a way to make it more realistic: this simple change in Behaviour Constants allows you to use the perfume 300 times.

"Also I've changed the duration of it - I think 8 hours is ok"
UPD: I've got some bad news. Seems like there's no way to change EAxis values here. Everything is 100% correct in my BCONs but I guess it's just not working. The string "Minutes Perfume Lasts" has an Attribute Label "Delete Me Now" in game files.
I'm really sorry guys I didn't test it properly. But "Number of Uses" works as planned. We're deeply sorry.

You can open the package with SimPE and change values yourself. If you are interested, I can explain how to do it, please feel free to comment.

UPDATE: +No FX Perfume (by Request) - perfume no longer causes those *stupid* flowers around your sims.
That was really easy to make and it worked but testers wanted anyway
The mods are independent so download the one you like or both of them.

Сompatibility:
These mods will not affect most custom perfumes.
These mods are fully compatible with Vampire Sunblock perfume by LycosV.

Hope you'll find it useful!

Good idea! 125 Simoleons for one squirt of perfume is silly. Now I know why I rarely used it!

I like this idea! Does it effect other custom perfumes?

I'm not really sure, but I think it doesn't.
I guess if the custom perfume has its own BCONs in the package this mod won't affect it)

UPD: I've just tested custom perfume Visions Inc by Kate (Parsimonious) and it's not affected by this mod cause it has its own BCONs. You can change the values in custom perfumes via SimPE, I'll write short tutorial if you need. But please remember: if you change anything in the package made by another creator do not upload it anywhere! Or better contact the creator

Great idea!
Do you know if this would affect this vampire sunblock perfume? http://modthesims.info/d/162163 Having 300 spays would be much more economical.

Yep, I think it does. I'll test it later or you can do it yourself. Really simple - if once used perfume didn't vanish from inventory then it's ok

UPD: These two mods do work together!

I was thinking more of it not being a sunblock anymore and my vampire actually burning up... I will make a test vampire tomorrow, test it out and post back on how it went.

Sometimes the littlest "fixes" are the ones that really make you say "OMG! I totally need this!!"

Thanks a bunch!

I just tested it and they both work together. Don't suppose you know how to remove the silly flowers that waft off them after using it?

I see you tested it anyway, I was going to save you a job.

Wonderful idea ! But I never really worry about the $125 price tag for the perfume. My Rich Sims always would buy three bottle of it, and my other hard working Sims would always have one bottle.
So you made it to last a bit longer is "Great", the flowers after spraying never bother me because it went away quickly. Question Please ? Below

If the perfume can last for 8 hours longer will we still see the flowers spinning around the Sims for that long? "I hope not" I hope you can give us members a choice of NO flowers or to have flowers,
but Not around the Sims for 8 hours long. This is a "Great Mod you have here for your first upload here on MTS. Thanks for sharing

I have over 15 generations so money is not a problem for my sims but I hate the scent leaving so soon! :'(
Now it'll make sense to set a sim preferences to "I like sims who wear perfume" (clearly, I don't know how to say this in english XD ), because sims will actually smell nice for a really long time 10000 thanks!

joandsarah77, Simonut I've made a version of perfume without special effects.

But there's also bad news - please read the Description. Sooorryyyy!

Thank you so much for getting rid of the flowers, that was one of my major reasons for never using it. Can't believe no one ever modded that out before now. I had no idea where to find it in simPE.

Do you mean it won't last 8 hours? How long does it last? I only just got the vampire version a few days before yours came out so I'm not too sure how long it lasts. Not important to most sims, but could be a bit of a worry for a vampire outside in the daylight.

Do we still get 300 sprays with the newer version?

In game files - 180 minutes, but in game itself it's only about 2 hours, not even 3 Seems like it's a kinda broken string or something?..
