Oh hey! You seem like a pretty insightful person. I'm developing a new product and I'd be interested to hear your feedback on it. Here's a free sample for you to mess around with.

No, I'm not giving you a wall TV - simply a little mod that adds new objects to the list of ridiculously expensive product samples. I added things like bag of chips, toys, books, magazines, perfume, as if they're gathering feedback on a new taste or smell, or trying to create buzz around new publication. See the full list of objects in a table below. You can customize it to your liking or leave it as it is. I labeled everything, so you can replace or delete any items you don't want or have. Yes, perfume bottle is listed twice. Because.

Conflicts: this mod would conflict with any other mod that overwrites the same resource.

Overriden Resources: BCON 0x42434F4E 0x7F9DCCE6 0x00001004

Game Compatibility: Apartment Life is required in any case. If you choose to use my list of 39 objects without editing, you also need Night Life, University and Open for Business. For people who might not have those EPs and can't or won't edit the file, I offer the version with 24 objects.

Choose one version:
- networking-gifts-mod-39-MULTI-EP - list of 39 objects from several EPs
- networking-gifts-mod-34-NOREWARDS - same as above, but without rewards
- networking-gifts-mod-24-BASEGAME - list of 24 objects from BG and AL

How to mod the mod:
You don't have to do it - the mod is ready to use as is. This part is for those who want to change it.

I decided to upload this simple mod just so people don't forget I exist, while I work on bigger projects. I hope you like it.

The mod 'ur something slogan is a reference to HugeLunatic's Mod 'ur Hike and Mod 'ur Dig mods.

Thank you so much! I have a Networking only family that will greatly benefit from the additional randomness of the items listed. I love this idea not only for them, but ALL my Sims. So excited to see and try this out! ...and what the heck is a Bottle O Nastiness?! LOL!

@Goldenbtrfly maybe the witch potion that temporarily removes all the nice points?

I'm grabbing this, though. Great idea.

Thank you so much for this! And for the little tutorial. I haven't had the time for it yet, but I certainly will customize this for my game. I like the dig and hike mod too, but this one is great for the publicity of my businesses.

Ahhh, OK - I have not played with witches in quite some time. Thank you for the reminder on what it is!

Thank you everyone

I wanted to say I've added one more version - same as full list, but without aspiration rewards, for those who find it cheating.

Wonderful! Thanks so much. Will you be modding something like this for date/outing rewards?
