Please Read this carefully

Introduction

Hi I'm Skydome This is the version 2 of my More Real Vampires mod. It adds a lot more new features, hope you have fun using it

How the game originally handled that

Originally the vampire sim would get the heatingup moodlet after spending 60 minutes outside. The heating up moodlet would then last for 3 hours.This mod changes that depending on the flavor you download. The vampire will get the OnFire moodlet when the heating up moodlet times out. The game would also kill your vampires when their thirst bar reches 0. That won't happen if you get the NoThirst.7z package. Also Vampires could Read mind only in the night time and once a Sim's mind is read it can't be reread for the entire day. That changes now.

Note:- The new flavor 5 won't make the sun burn your Vampires but still give the other abilities.


What does this mod do?

This mod makes vampires more real to the lore. The lore I know that is. By making them burn from sunlight and allowing them to mind control Sims.

Note:- The new flavor 5 won't make the sun burn your Vampires but still give the other abilities.

Features

1)This mod makes Vampires die from sunlight. The heating up moodlet will now appear instantly.
Once the moodlet times up Sims will get the OnFire moodlet and die when it times out. Inactive Vampires will burn only if they're in the same lot as an active Sim and they're inside a lot. Otherwise they'll simply faint.

2)This mod prevents Vampires from dying due to low thirst. Even if you use testingcheats to bring it down or have your witch cast thirst curse. Tremerion also had a mod which did that but the witch thirst curse and testingcheats could still kill them. Mine prevents that from happening as well. This feature is in NoThirst.7z

3)Now I thought if my witch can no longer protect herself/himself from vampires so I had to do something for them. So I made it so that sunlight charm will make them pass out.


4) Vampires now have the sense to stay inside during the day. I've made it so that Vampires will go inside their houses when they start heating up.

5)Vampires will not burn if it's raining, snowing, foggy,hail.

Note:- The new flavor 5 won't make the sun burn your Vampires but still give the other abilities.

6)Vampires can now Read Mind and make Sims think about them in the daytime and without cooldown i.e. they can do it repeatedly without getting Sims minds are too weak to be tampered with message(or something like that)

7)Vampires now have the option to Compel Sims Yay
Compel to drink is like the Sims 4 Compel to drink
Compel to be Friendly with... makes the sim you compelled be more friendly to the other sim of your choice.
Compel to be Flirty with... makes the sim you compelled be more flirty to the other sim of your choice.
Compel to be mean to... makes the sim you compelled be mean to the other sim of your choice.
Compel to fight with... Makes the Sim you compelled fight with another Sim of your choice.
Compel to become Friend... Makes the compelled Sim your friend.
Compel to become Lover... Makes the compelled Sim fall in love with you.
Compel to Workout... Makes the compelled Sim workout. They'll go to gym if they can't find any exercise equipment. They won't workout if they're fatigued.
Compel to sleep... Makes the compelled Sim fall asleep. They'll just Nap if they're energy need is high
Compel to become Servant... Will give the Sim a compelled moodlet. A compelled Sim will clean the house and repair broken objects. The Vampire that compelled the Sim will be able to directly command them instead of Compelling. Like command to be flirty or command to fight with.. Other vampires will not be able to compel this Sim. They'll get the message that this Sim is already compelled.

8)The heating up or too much sun moodlet will prevent you from compelling or reading minds, if you already have a Sim that is compelled you can still command them.

How to install
1)Download one of the 5 flavors. The NoThirst.7z is an optional add on which can work with any of the flavors.
2)Extract the packages with 7zip or WinRAR or other softwares.
3)Put them in the Mods/Packages folder.
4)Start the game.
5)Play as a Vampire to see the effects.
(If this is the first time you're downloading a mod, check the proper instructions in the Files tab.)

If you were using a previous version of my mod, then before you download this mod, delete the previous version then open your game and save and quit. Why you need to do this is because the compelled moodlet has been changed a lot in the 17/05/18 update. If you are sure that no Sim has the compelled moodlet in your game then you don't need to do this step.

Flavours for this mod

1)No Thirst:-This is a tuning mod. It makes Vampires immune to dying from low thirst. This mod can be used alongside other flavors.
2)Flavor1:-Vampires will burn after spending 1 hour in the sun
3)Flavor2:-Vampires will burn after spending 2 hour in the sun
4)Flavor3:-Vampires will burn after spending 3 hour in the sun
5)Flavor4:-Vampires will burn after spending 30 minutes in the sun
6)Flavor5:-Vampires will not burn from the Sun they'll just get the too much sun moodlet.(This flavor was created because it was requested by multiple people)

Technical details

Version 2 of More Real Vampires can be considered pure scripting but it uses some tuning files as well. It tunes the VampireHunt_Terrain, VampireReadMind_Sim and VampireThinkaboutMe_Sim Itun files and motives.xml file located in gameplaydata.package. Any other mod that does the same will conflict with it.

Version 2 of More Real Vampires does not tune Buffs.xml, thnx to Chain who taught me how to replace an EA moodlet with a custom one by script so the xml file was not needed anymore yay

Additional features I'm considering adding for the future if I can

1)Compel to workout interaction.(I should be able to do it) Done
2)Compel to sleep interaction.(I should be able to do this one as well) Done
3)Turn off emotions ability for Vampires to disable their Social need.(Like Vampire Diaries.
4)Vampire Powers skill. Similar to witch magic or Fairy magic skill but the Vampire version.
5)Vampiric age skill. This skill will be a way to determine how old a Vampire is. Older Vampires will be stronger.
(Have to learn skill modding)
6)Daylight Rings(Like the ones in Vampire Diaries, gain immunity to sunlight)
7)Bat transformation:-I'm not sure if this is even possible to do with a mod. All I can say is I'll try
8)Make Vampires run faster:-Not sure if this can be done either. I've seen lots of people asking about it in different forums and there hasn't been any success yet(as far as I know) So this too may be impossible.

please note:- I don't know when I'll add these since I'm new at modding and don't know exactly how to do it right away. I also have some other projects.

Mod Conflicts


(Please note: this mod works fine with Sauzer's Vampire powers and Einrei's Vampire mod as far as I know)

This mod will conflict with other mods that change the VampireHunt_Terrain, VampireReadMind_Sim and VampireThinkaboutMe_Sim Itun files and motives xml file.
It will conflict with some of Shoni's Vampire overhaul flavours and the full version but most of it should work fine.
It will conflict with with Vampire Tweaker.




Let me know if you have any problems in the comments or by PM.

For some reason whenever I try and download the mod WinRAR won't recognise it, so I can't extract the mod. Everytime I try it says, "The system cannot find the file specified". But it's working when I download anything else. Do you have any idea why this might be happening?

No I don't know. I think maybe you got an older version of WinRAR. Try 7zip instead.

When this mod is installed, my vampire sims can't seem to interact with my genie for some reason. No interactions show up and if ErrorTrap is present, it registers an error, did I do something wrong?

That is very odd. I'll look into it. Please re read the install instructions to make sure everything is correct. What other mods do you have?


Edit:- I just checked and interactions between Genies and vampires went fine. No problem. Give more details when you can. Also PM me because I don't get notifications for comments.

The Vampire just bites their neck only in a romantic way. No more biting on the wrist? Also, when they do bite the neck, its really quick

The compel to drink only has neck bite at the moment. The wrist biting and neck biting animations are unchanged. EA made it that way. I'm actually thinking of doing an update for this mod.
Would you like wrist biting in compel to drink for non romantic Sims?

I gotta say, this mod is awesome
I mean there are plenty of vampire mods out there, but this stuff is like the best
Just the vampires I like to see, damn powerful and dangerous at night but at a great price of total annihilation under the sunlight

Hi! I love this mod, especially the compel action, but I have one glitch/question. When I have my vampire sim use 'Compel [Name] to be servant', nothing happens to the sim. What could be causing this to happen?

I am not exactly sure hmm. Is it installed correctly? What is your patch version?

And when you say nothing. Does the interaction not happen at all? Like is there a compelling animation? Or routing? Who are these two Sims(age, occult status, preganancy)?

Oh I am seeing that you don't have Seasons listed as installed in your profile. I am wondering if that is the reason it's not working. The mind control moodlet I think inherits from the alien mind control. I will check again. Either way this mod is getting a new update soon anyway.

Does the mod turn off the sparkle feature of immortal vampires? Can you add flavors messing with thirst decay rate? (Sorry I'm so demanding xD)

No but there's another mod that can deal with the sparkles https://modthesims.info/d/446536/cr...07-02-2013.html

I will consider thirst decay flavors mod

Currently there is a no thirst death feature that is optional as you probably know.
