Latest version : package file with modified date : 03/08/2018 10:31 AM. Please make sure you have the latest version.

Want to see your pregnant sims have pregnancy mood swing ? Or may be your teen sims experience mood swing ? Or having your adult sims get midlife crisis ? Then try this mod in your game. (Do not confuse "mood" in this mod with mood in term of state of motives in sims 2).

This mod adds new gameplay, hence is experimental. Feel free to give feedback in comments for unusual behaviour.
Note : For those who experience wrong text description in this mod custom memory, getting something like "I organized a great party" or even blank description instead of actual memory description, It is because your game region language is not US English. Since my custom memories are clone from game's held party memory, and I only the change US English language and not the other region language, so you have to change the memory description to your own region language. You can follow these steps here but the one that you have to change is "Catalog Description" in the this mod main package instead of "Text List" in the localization plugin. Catalog description contains all description text for custom memories

  • If you experience blank popup, notification, dialog box or message, try these steps here
  • If you want to localize/translate the text into your language or game region, you can follow these steps here
  • If you experience other unusual behaviours, you can try to follow these steps here
  • Every plugin is not independent mod package, unless it is said so. You have to install the main package if you want to use a plugin.

DEMO VERSION AVAILABLE. What is demo version ?


First things first :
Compatibility :
This mod is not compatible with base-game-only. The resources I've overriden are taken from Apartment Life, but in the coding also contains functions and constants from Freetime and University

What does this mod do ?
This mod gives you three kind of main events based on wants-refresh event (so, the events that this mod offered only happened on want/fear check or want/fear refresh). These main event are :




Conflicts :
Known Conflict :
  • inTeen, where this mod "add memory function conflict with "Abort pregnancy" function from inteen. A plugin package for compatibility has been upload, please download that plugin. Please do not forget to rename this mod main package into "zzzz_pqw_mood_swing.package" if you use inTeen.
Technically, this mod will conflict with other mods that override these game resources :

  • To simplified the mod maintenance in the future, there will be only one flavour of this mod, the one that contains all events : teen mood swing, pregnancy mood swing and adult midlife crisis + 1 DEMO version.
  • Want to set your own chances other than explained above ? Do not worry, just open your package using SimPE. Open resources as shown in picture number 5, and change the value (from 0 to 100), commit and save.
  • if you want to disable teen mood swing, set 0 to "% teen mood swing", "mood threshold for additional % chance teen" and "max % additional chance teen" values.
  • if you want to disable adult midlife crisis, set 0 to "% adult midlife crisis", "mood threshold for additional % chance adult" and "max % additional chance adult" values.
  • if you want to disable pregnancy mood swing, set 0 to "% pregnancy mood swing" value.

Install :
  • Just put my mod in Downloads folder of your sims 2 data. If this mod does not work, try to change the load order, like rename my mod to "z_pqw_mood_swing.package".
  • For inTeen user, please make sure this mod and all of its plugin, if any, are loaded after inTeen, by checking if there is "zzzz_" in front of original filename, and adding "zzzz_" if they have not been renamed yet.
  • This mod should be load after "pqw_afterschoolactivity.package" and "pqw_afterworkactivity.package" and their plugins if any. If you do not change the name of those packages and this package, then it should be just fine, as it complies the load order.
  • It is adviced for you to backup your nhood once in a while and before installing this mod just in case.

Additional Credits :
  • Creators of SimPE
  • EA and sims wikia since icon and memory wording for "midlife crisis" I took from sims wikia of sims 3
  • ihatemandatoryregister who kindly offered to help me make correction of my syntax. The text of this mod's current verison is the edited version by ihatemandatoryregister
