This mod replaces the original green plumbob with the pride rainbow version. Simple as that.

I hope you like it! Happy Pride Month!

FIRST:

1. Put the PridePlumbob_SimMattically.package file in your Mods folder.

THEN:

2. Go to your main The Sims 4 installation folder and then navigate to: Game/Bin/
3. There should be a file named Default.ini, make a backup copy of it.
4. Open the original Default.ini with Notepad (Windows) or TextEdit (MacOS) or any other text editor that you use.
5. Find [PlumbBob] section. There should be "playeractivecolor = 0.43, 0.78, 0.12, 1.00" and change these values to "playeractivecolor = 1.00, 1.00, 1.00, 1.00."
6. Save the file! That's it.

if you right click on the desktop icon of the sims 4 there should be an option of the popup menu that says "open file location," you click that and it takes you right to the "bin" folder. after doing that you just follow the steps on how to download the file.

Is it possible to make this plumbob only for humans, and not for occults? I'm assuming that the numbers from the ini file would allow that; do you know which numbers are for which species?

For now, I think I will use the one you've uploaded, and just see if it gets the occult rings on it.

Yes! The occults have the pride plumbob AND the ring at the same time.

I've been using this for several days, and I have to say it looks really good in the game! I wish there were a way it wouldn't change colors when the plumbob would normally go yellow, orange, or red, but there may be no way around that. There's only a small part of it that changes colors, at least. And it's really very pretty!

There is a way. Go to the file that I mentioned in instruction. There are different colors with # tag. The tutorial says to change the # green line but there are also yellow red etc. Just change them too to the values from my instruction and the plumbob will always stay the same!

I love it! It looks so amazing and I love how each individual identity makes up a facet up the whole icon. This is so well done
