This Mod is Compatible with Seasons!

Patch 1.44.77 (Jun 19th patch) Compatible

--------------------------
What This Mod Does:
I was so sick of the dryers constantly catching fire every other time you dried your clothes and didn't clean the lint trap so I decided to make this mod. This mod makes it so you only have a 10% chance of having a fire instead of the default which was 55%.

There is a _V1 file and that flavor makes the sim self-extinguish themselves right after catching fire.

Where do I install this mod?
C:\Users\YOUR COMP\Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\Mods
--------------------------

!!Please feel free to PM me or post comments if you have any questions or problems!!

~Happy Simming~

thanks I have been seriously annoyed by this, autonomous sims always catching on fire. One of my maids even burst into flames during a birthday party... I never looked at the tuning. 55%?? I wonder what the REAL statistic is, but i'd assume 10% is pretty close.

Thank you so much!! I hate how stupid sims are when it comes to laundry. Between the fires and how poorly the washers/dryers function, I've just been avoiding putting washers/dryers on any lots without sims handy enough to upgrade them...

Oh my god, thank you so much. I've had so many laundry fires (even after cleaning the lint trap it seems). You're a lifesaver (literally)!

Ugh. Thank you so much. If my (real) dryer broke and caught fire 10th the frequency of these ones, it would still be an insane amount of fires

Thank you SO much for this, I didn't even want to bother with laundry anymore because my sims were always autonomously doing the laundry without cleaning the lint tray and the amount of times the dryer would catch on fire was outrageous.

Annoying interection! Thank you for this. :) Even 10% chance is probably a bit above the likelyhood of this happening in real life. What was Maxis thinking? lol O.o I have saw some DIRTY lint traps in peoples home! :D :)

Thank you for fixing yet another one of EA's unbelievably stupid design choices.
