    Added new small Mod: Prefer Leftover” (Random) -  Sims don’t auto cook if food is in the fridge and instead prefer to eat the leftover. Keep in mind if you use my “No Auto Food Grab” Mod: That Mod will stop Sims from getting leftover autonomously when the “prevent buff” is active (The Autofill Button in the UI is autonomous behaviour as well). If that is the case you need to manually send them to get leftover.

    Play Chess on Computers and Tablets!

    I know playing chess is a great way to improve logic skills in the game but word on the street is that they aren’t pretty and a pain to place in game. Someone mentioned that Sims 3 had the option to play chess on a computer so I wanted to recreate that in Sims 4!

    My initial goal was to add an additional option to play chess on tablets and computers. However, the best way for me to implement this without scripts/requiring additional mods and also be compatible with MCCC etc. was to override the BicBlock game for computers and tablets. But this means less files/upkeep for you and also should work with all custom CC computers and mods like MCCC!

    I created custom videos for when your sim is playing chess! The chess pieces actually move on the screen as they play. Similar to the chess table, this increases the logic skill and also adds a focused moodlet from playing.

    After reaching certain levels in the logic skill, your sim can use the computer to compete in tournaments and win some simoleons! They can also stream their gameplay and play against other sims. These options are on the computer only.

    Out now early access for patrons with a public release of December 2nd!

    PS: Again, just want to mention this is an override that will replace the BlicBlock (aka tetris) game on tablets and computers. If you are attached to that game, you will not want to install this!

    Sims 4 Semi-Active Photographer Career! [Patreon Early Access, Free Public Access 31st December]

    [Requires: Get to Work, Seasons, Get Famous, Island Living], but don’t worry, I will be making a base-game version in the coming days!

    Being a photographer means a keen eye, a flow of inspiration, patience and a creative touch. Your job will be centred around capturing life, whether it be for memories, for advertisements, to conjure emotions or to represent a brand. Do you have what it takes to freeze time and create everlasting images that inspire and move the masses?

    This career is semi-active, meaning your Sims can work from home and complete tasks! The money they receive from their daily tasks will be the equivalent of the career level daily salary. If you work from home, you will receive 4 tasks!

    Download here at my patreon: [x], £1 per month for early access, £3 per month for a monthly trait request, £5 per month for monthly trait request and a monthly aspiration or career request, £10 per month for all of the above, plus chance cards!

    If you want monthly trait, aspiration & career requests, check out my £3 upward tiers!

    No halfwall trim mod

    One of my patrons asked me if I had the mod that allowed to hide those bulky halfwall trim, because the original link & tumblr had been deleted. I did find that post but had no chance in finding the package either. So I put my hands in the core of the game and succeeded in exporting and recreating it !

    It’s an override of the second halfwall trim. Although it removes the “plank” from the top of the wall, there’s no way to change its color or texture, so you’ll have a dark shadow instead.

    All credits go to the unknown modder who did that first, as I wouldn’t have the idea of doing it myself :) And therefor, no early access for this file.

    Set Family Relationships Mod

    image

    One of the features I love about MC Command Center is the ability to add relationships. It allows you to add siblings and parents to desired sims. However, you cannot add cousins, uncles, aunts, grandchildren or grandparents yet. This mod allows you to add those relationships! I use it to add cousins since the game only recognizes first cousins in the relationship panel by default.

    To use the mod, click on the desired sim and click on the Set Family Relationships Menu. Here, you can add or remove relationships (parents are not included because I couldn’t get the family tree to update the way MCC grandparents and siblings worked). For example, if you click on a sim, you can make them your active sim’s grandparent by clicking “Set as Grandparent”. 

    To Install: Unzip the included package and script files directly into your Sims 4 mods folder.

    (Only in English for now, but hope to change for future releases).

    Created for The Sims 4

    Ever been frustrated at your Sim's lack of will to nourish themselves, even when you've put a plate of food right in their hands? Have you canceled eating or drinking because it was just taking them way too long? Well, I've got a fix for our Sims' lack of focus on nutrition!

    With QuickEats, food and drink are your Sim's main concern when they're eating. They will continuously eat until they're finished, and depending on the flavor you choose, they can also interact and become distracted from their food to different degrees so that they can complete dates and other events that require discussion over a meal. No more aimlessly walking around festivals with half-eaten samosas for your Sims!

    I saw that the other Faster Eating and Drinking mods on here have become outdated, so I decided to publish this personal use mod I made in August for a demonstration.


    Priorities, Priorities

    This mod comes in 3 flavors: Peckish, Hangry and Ravenous.

    Peckish: In this flavor, the base_weight of passive consumption was changed from 1 to 400. This allows for some distractions while eating, but obviously food is much higher on the list of priorities. They will continuously eat until they are finished, with brief breaks for animations and more allowance for interactions.

    Hangry:
    This flavor is the mid-priority of the 3. The base_weight of consumption was changed from 1 to 600, giving Sims more focus on eating than if they're Peckish, and less opportunity for distraction. You can still interact while eating and drinking, but they will stop less often to do other things.

    Ravenous: For the hungriest games, this flavor is the highest priority of the 3. The base_weight of consumption was changed from 1 to 800, making Sims put almost all of their focus on food with minimal distractions. However, you can still interact while your Sim continuously eats -- a Sim won't do much autonomously in terms of other interactions, though!

    Only download ONE version of this mod.

    Created for The Sims 4

    With the December 2020 patch, CC skintones stopped appearing in the CAS skintone picker. This tool will update them and optionally will add tanned and burned textures to older skintones.

    When running this tool, do NOT save the converted package over the original; that may corrupt the package and you could end up with an unusable file! Give it a new name or save it in a different location. Then remove the old package from your Mods folder and replace it with the converted one.

    Pick which skintone panel you want the CC skins to appear in and this tool will convert them. It sets up the light/dark slider with standard values.

    It makes fairly accurate textures for natural skin colors and makes its best guess at tan and burn colors for fantasy skins. It uses the swatch color to judge how light/dark the skin is and decide which color(s) are dominant for fantasy skins, so an accurate swatch is important.

    I've uploaded only a 64-bit version which requires .NET 4 or higher. I can upload a 32-bit version but since this program has to process large uncompressed textures I ran into 'out of memory' problems using 32-bit.

    Straight conversion is fast, but if you're adding tan and burn textures and there are more than a few skintones in the package it'll take a seriously long time to compress the files and save after converting. Your system may report the process as not responding but it should complete eventually.

    This is really quick and dirty so keep copies of your original skintone packages and please report errors.

    Unzip and run TS4SkinConverter.exe.

    Windows only, sorry.

    Look for Keyword “Littledica” or browse your Misc. decor category. They cost 0 simoleons!
    - THE TEXTURES ARE BEING INDEXED FROM THE GAME, REQUIRES SNOWY E

    No Occluder Small & Large Appliances Default Replacement

    Putting this in a separate post to make it easier to link to.

    This file is a must-have if you use any of my kitchens. Since I changed the cabinet shader to fix colouring and shading issues, appliances, both small and large, have occluders that darken cabinets and make them look horrible. This solves that for all Maxis objects released so far (or recolours with a linked light source). All this file includes is default replacement light resources for all appliances that had occluders and will fix the issue.
