Catch those pesky bugs! - No Failure to Collect Insects

After being frustrated that my Sims always seemed to lose the insect they tried to catch, I decided to make this mod. It's a simple XML tuning mod that changes the "Catch Insect" interaction.

How does it work?
With this mod your Sim will always be successful at catching insects.
The "failed" animation will still play because I like seeing it, but your Sim will always get the bug added to their inventory anyways.
Your Sim will still be able to get negative buffs after catching an insect.

Conflicts and compatibility
This mod will conflict with any mod that changes the collection_Insects_Collect interaction (Instance 00000000000192A0).
I highly recommend Egureh's Always Generate Insects mod to go along with this mod. These mods will not conflict with one another.

Made with game version 1.42.
You need Outdoor Retreat for this mod to work.

Unzip the .rar file and place the .package file in your Mods folder. For more info, check out this guide on SimsWiki.

Hey! I tested it myself and it seems to be working fine for me. Do you use WinRAR or 7zip? I don't know if other programs work as well.

That's weird! I have 7zip as well and tested it out and it seemed to work fine for me. Did you make sure you're using the latest version? Also, sometimes a download can become corrupted (for example when your internet connection temporarily fails, happens to me sometimes) so maybe try downloading the file again?
