Update 09/11/2021: Got alerted to some last-exception and hashing errors; these have now been fixed.

Update 09/10/2021: A min_lod value that has been missing hitherto is now in the traits, in an effort to minimize last exceptions. A Lumpinou's Mood Pack variation has also been added, to make transferal of updates easier for later.

-----------------------------

Okay, this one - I admit - is a little bit risky. I've checked the guidelines, and it shouldn't be a problem to put this one up since I don't go into explicit detail about anything, but I'm still aware it might prove contentious. If this trait would bother you and/or upset you if it were in your game, feel free to skip this one; no hard feelings.

For the rest of you: the Rainbow Baby trait.

Occasional Buffs:
  • One, 'Lucky', boosts the increase of friendly LTRs by 1.3x, gives all happy emotions a 1.5x multiplier, and increases the autonomy of friendly/chatting interactions, particularly of 'Hug Lovingly'.
  • The other, 'Reminiscence of an Unknown', allows a special interaction called 'Miss Them' to play out, initiated by the rainbow baby to their parent; that leads to its own buff for the parent.
  • I'm still trying to refine their timing, so please be aware of that.

Other Features:
  • There's another always-on interaction initiable by the parent, 'Give Extra Love'; it activates happy buffs on both sides.

This trait does not affect need decay, nor does it have any whims or proximity buffs. If there's anything that needs fleshing out, please let me know!

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.

This is lovely! And the realism is appreciated. Thank you for making this mod. Would it be possible to integrate this with LittleMsSam's related mod? Maybe there could be a chance of getting this through gameplay if we have both mods installed?

That is definitely something I would like to pull off, but I can't guarantee/promise you a speedy turnaround on that front. I've had trouble integrating my traits with other mods in the past - see also the issues I've had with making my ED traits jive with Woohoo Wellness's cravings - and I feel like I'd need a little more experience before being able to pull that off. It's definitely on the to-do-in-the-future list, though!

Ah no worries at all! Your hard work is definitely appreciated. I love and have all of your trait mods and I really appreciate the dimension they bring to my game. My sims feel so much more real to me now <3

Thank you for this! My sim's story is that he is at high risk for miscarriages so this is a perfect addition to storytelling.

This is actually kind of sweet and I sincerely hope MTS doesn't have a problem with it.

but I actually thought rainbow baby meant like, a baby from an LGBTQ+ couple lol I didn't know what it actually meant!

Risky yes, but essential to so many of us, who have experienced the pain of this in reality. Thank you.
