Better Dishwasher Tweaks

If you play like me with large households, dishes can be a pain. Especially after a big party and you’ll left with a dining room littered with dirty plates. But then you notice how your sim is only able to grab a few dishes and may have to make a second or third trip. Well no more of that. By default, sims are only able to grab 5 dishes at a time, which is lame if you only have 1 sim washing dishes. With this mod, the limit was set to 20. In the pic, you’ll see Nahe is holding 8 plates.

This mod was requested by one of my good friends and the timing was perfect cause there’s more that I wanted to do with the dishwasher. While playing my 100 BC, I am annoyed how sims would just stand in front of the dishwasher after placing dishes inside. This prevents other sims who are also trying to wash dishes from using it. EA had the bright idea to set the washing time to 20 minutes. So that explains why your idiot sim stands in front of dishwasher forever. I set the washing time to 2 minutes, sims will place into the dishwasher and walk away immediately. I also shorten repair & upgrade time to 5 minutes and made the dishwasher less breakable. New dishwashers can last 3 weeks before deciding to break. I swear that thing breaks all the time -_-

This mod will conflict with any mod that alters the following:

  • DishwasherExpensive XML
  • DishwasherCheap XML
  • Dishwasher XML
  • WashDishes XML

Made with Patch 1.63 (may still work with higher patches)

Various Mods Dump – 100K Views Gift – Part 1

On July 5th 2015, my blog reached 100k views on its 3rd year anniversary. How juicy was that :p As promised, I planned to be a gift together for all you lovely peoples. According to the polls, mods and a build won. Right now I just have the mods done and have yet to start on the build, which the Night Club had won.

In this post is various mini tweaks that I made for personal use but will share with you all. I do have 2 other mods to add to the gift however I felt those 2 mods need their own separate posts since they do more than one thing. Those will be posted shortly after this one.

All mods were made with patch 1.63 and may work with higher patches.

Better Spa

I originally planned to upload this with a build but decided not to. Possibly later but I dunno. What this mod does is make the spa items that came with Sunlit Tides more useful ONLY if they are placed on a lot that is set as a Gym or a Pool. Sims will give and get massages more autonomously, they will use the sauna more autonomously. They will also use the hot tub more autonomously as well. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get the mod to take with the foot massage chair. Sims’ energy and aliens’ brain power will also be increased when getting a massage, using the sauna and relaxing in the hot tub along with their hygiene. Just slightly and slowly.  Sims will use the spray tan booth more autonomously. Sims weight won’t change when using the sauna. I also cut the bathing time in half cause I felt it was too long. Sims get inpatient when wanting to use it :p  Mermaids and Plant sims can gain re-hydration in the hot tub and the sauna bath tub. The spa items are less autonomous on home lots or any other lot type. They tend to obsess over the spa items at home and reasons why I lowered. But this mod was intended to be used when you wanted a playable spa for fun or storytelling.

This mod will conflict with any mod that alters ITUNs and XMLs of the Massage Table, Sauna, Spray tan booth and Hot Tub

Bonfire Party Fun

I wasn’t sure what to call this tuning but I adjusted a lot of items from Seasons and University Life. This mod makes bonfires last a lot longer. Sims will use the fire pit slightly more autonomously. Raking leaves is 10 times faster. Sims can play in leaf piles on com lots. I think it was dumb that they couldn’t -_- The keg has more servings so it won’t tap out quickly. Upgrading the keg doesn’t take a century to do so. Teens and pregnant sims can use the keg. (I don’t condone that but its the sims so whatever :p )

This mod will conflict any other mod that alters ITUNs and XMLs of the Keg, Fire pit, Bonfire pit and Leaf raking

Better Gardening

I often made huge auto gardens for stories but trying to maintain was a bit difficult. I felt tending to the garden took too long and I wish they were tend to their garden on their own. With this mod watering, weeding and harvesting is 10 times faster. Sims will autonomously attend to their garden, however Green Thumb sims and fairies will attend to gardens more. Fairies will have a 100% success bloom. Green Thumb sims will chat with plants autonomously like some weirdo.

This mod will conflict with any mod that alters the ITUNs and XMLs of:

TalkToPlants_GardenStation
WaterPlants_GardenStation
HarvestPlant_
Bloom_Plant
Plant_

More Autonomous Roller Coaster Riding

It was cool when EA released the boardwalk set but pretty lame when sims didn’t actually use the roller coaster unless you forced them. I did see that the tunings were high if placed on a festival lot. Well I rarely make those type of lots. I increased the tunings on any type of lot and sims will make use of this thing. Also I set ride with autonomous so sims won’t ride alone cause that’s no fun. Ride with is slightly higher.

This mod will conflict with any mod that alters the ITUNs of the Roller coaster.

Faster Nectar Making

While playing in France I came to realize that making nectar took a century. So I made nectar making 10 times faster. This mod does work with Buzzler’s  Nectar Combinatorics mod. But it will conflict with any mod that alters the Nectar making XML.

No Autonomous Working Out

This mod disables autonomous working out with the stereo and TV. I found it annoying how I’ll be setting up a scene at a club or a wedding and some random sim decides its time to work out -_- However sims can still work out autonomously with the gym equipment. I also disabled kids from working out, they will not have that option. I just thought it was kinda silly of seeing kids do squats :/ Go outside and play to get your exercise little sillies!

This mod will conflict with any mod that alters the ITUNs of work out to TV and stereo

Less Service Sims 

This mod decreases the number of service sims the Maid, Mailman, Butler, Policemen, Firemen, Resort worker, Pets, Bartender service, Burglar, Repoman, Repairman, Pizza Delivery, and Newspaper Delivery pools. There’s no need to have 100+ service sims in town.

This mod will conflict with any mod that does the same.

Food Truck Tweaks

I really haven’t messed with the food truck that came with Late Night. I plan to build a carnival one day and figure the food trucks would be a nice touch BUT the truck only has 6 boring options: Burrito, Taco, Hot dog, Hamburger, Plasma Chowder and Clam Chowder. Since having every EP I thought it would be nice to add some extra carnival friendly foods.

  • Onion Rings
  • Cheese Steak Sandwich
  • Pulled Pork Sandwich
  • Chili Cheese Fries
  • French Fries
  • Garlic Fries
  • Sweet Fries
  • Fried Plantains
  • Fish And Chips
  • Cuban Sandwich
  • Funnel Cake
  • Ceviche
  • Nachos
  • Hot Wings
  • Eggrolls
  • Grilled Cheese
  • French Toast
  • Fried Peanut Butter Banana Sandwich
  • Cinnamon Donut
  • Empanada

I also enabled children to order from the food truck too. Since there’s no animation, the child will stretch out for a bit before returning back to normal.

This mod requires: Late Night, World Adventures, Showtime, Supernatural, Seasons, University Life, Island Paradise.

This mod alters:

  • FoodTruck XML
  • OrderFood_FoodTruck ITUN
