Staff note: An updated version of this mod for 1.24 -27.10.2016 is available here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=585005



It is time for me to say 'adieu' and retire from modding TS4. The decision is a purely personal one. Thank-you to those who supported me during my run. I've been at it since this game first released, and I really appreciated the kind words that kept me going now and again. If anyone wishes to take up any of my mods, feel free. I have gathered a retirement archive for your convenience. Happy simming! ~MB }i{

Approved for patch 2-June-2016!

This week in my game the sink broke, the toilet broke, the computer broke, and the television broke...all one right after the other. Then I raged quit and made this mod. What I found was that all of the objects that break were set to a chance of 67% breakage. Which I suppose is why they do break all the time.

So, here are the reduced breakage flavors:

5 Percent - Default chance changed from 67% on all objects to 5%
15 Percent - Default chance changed from 67% on all objects to 15%
30 Percent - Default chance changed from 67% on all objects to 30%





How to Install (Important!)

Unzip the file and place in your Mod folder! Install only one flavor.

I don't know how you manage to be so quick and thorough with your updates. I am just happy to be able to lend a teensy helping hand.

Cheers to you!

This is really a must have for Sims 4. 67% is waaaay to outrageously high. Why I waited this long to add it, I'm not even sure I suppose after watching a Sim break a toilet, the sink, then take a shower and break it as well. Meanwhile across the house a Sim breaks a computer and then breaks the other toilet and sink. All in the span of a minute. All of the sinks are low grade ones, but they were upgraded to break less.

Am I right in thinking the 0% option should mean no breakage??
Stuff still breaks in my game even with this mod installed.
