Do not bundle the Familiar Additions script with your custom familiars.
Provide a link instead as it will make it easier for users to have the most recent version.
Current version is 1.0 for patch 1.63.136
Familiar Additions provides a framework that allows the addition of fully functional, and standalone, familiars to The Sims 4: Realm of Magic without relying on conflict prone tuning overrides. Instead, it injects modded familiars into the game with the help of a tuning, provided by the modder, that contains the data of the familiar they wish to add.
As of version 1.0, Familiar Additions can do the following:
- Inject custom familiars into the game code
- Inject custom familiar reaction dialogs to the following Spellcaster events:
- Contracting a new curse
- Removing a curse
- Winning a duel
- Losing a duel
- Earning a new spellcaster rank
- Entering the overcharged state
- Failing to brew a potion
- Learning a new potion recipe
- Brewing a potion successfully
- Failing to cast a spell
- Learning a new spell
- Allows for custom familiars to be obtained through the following methods:
- Duel for Artifacts
- Vendors in Caster's Alley
- Change and/or remove a familiar's persistent visual effect
Furthermore, a very simple, but fully functional, modded familiar can be downloaded as an optional file. It may also be used as a template to ease the understanding of how modded familiars are implemented.
Feedback and suggestions regarding future versions of Familiar Additions are welcome.
Realm of Magic is required for this mod to function.
Extract MAL22_FamiliarAdditions.ts4script file from the main archive. Then, drag and drop the file(s) in the mods folder of The Sims 4.
If you wish to install the bundled Red Fairy familiar; Extract MAL22_Familiar_Additions_RedFairy_data.package, MAL22_Familiar_Additions_RedFairy_Familiar.package, MAL22_Familiar_Additions_RedFairy_Orb.package and put them in the mods folder of The Sims 4.
The Red Fairy files can be merged but were provided separately to ease the learning curve that may come with creating modded familiars.
