No More Fish Sadness!

As per request, I've added a new version "mounted fish sadness" which removes the negative buffs detailed below while keeping the sad buffs from viewing mounted fish, and the mourn fish friend interaction. Enjoy!

It didn't make sense to me that my mermaid sims would dislike eating fish. I mean they're mermaids, they live in the ocean, so eating fish should be normal right? So instead of avoiding this trait altogether, I decided to finally change it up.

This is a simple tuning mod that removes some of the buffs related to the child of the ocean trait. Your sims will no longer receive negative buffs for eating fish, fishing, emptying traps, or looking at mounted fish! This will also remove the "disgusted" reaction to eating food made with fish.

This may conflict with any mods that modify the XML files below

There are plants in the sea too like?? Honestly it makes a lot of sense to me that they are disgusted by that. It's basically cannibalism, people.

Edit: I mean of course if you don't like that, great that theres a solution now! But I found it perfectly natural that they think its bad, lol

I think this needs an update. I'm getting the sad buff from eating fish friends after patch.

Agree with the comment on top of mine.
My mermaid is getting sad again everytime they eat fish.
