Improved Relationship - Parenthood system for other relationships

SiliCloneSiliClone Posts: 2,560 Member
edited August 2019 in Gameplay Mods
I made this mod for myself, too.. and I've been using it for some time, now.

What this mod does is very simple, it adds buffs to other relationships in game based on proximity, the same way Parenthood adds a buff if a sim has a good or bad relationship with the family... so, now, for example, two Sims who have the "bad romance" relationship (or similar) will feel like this around each other:

or like this around a Sim they badly divorced from:

but they will feel different if the relationship starts working again...

and if they manage to make it works... they will feel...

This works for every non family relationship in game, so for example your sim will feel the butterflies around their lovebird (if they don't have "a past" together:
wMijsCm.png
or in love with their lovers...

Happy with their soulmate, confident around their best friend, angry around their enemies, sad around someone who left them at the altar etc...

get it here...

    Does it play well with other gameplay mods? For instance I have MCCC and Road to Fame.

    I don't know about road to fame, but it works with MCCC and with other popular mods like meaningful stories.

    Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. I can't play without RTF, just so you know. If I was inclined to start my singer Sim all over yet AGAIN, I'd give it a try and let you know. But, I hesitate, because this is the umpteenth time I've gone through this path. LOL Right now, I haven't played my game in a good couple of days. Inertia from lack of decision is the cause. Should Erik stay in HS so he can go to uni? Or should I have him quit school since he's very nearly a Global Superstar and making Simonleons hand over fist? I can't decide, so I do nothing. :open_mouth:

    ETA: I've got this thread bookmarked. :)

    Does this mod work with the Meaningful Stories mod? That one seems to be functioning well with MCCC and RTF, so far. I only had trouble once I introduced Private Practice. Sad, because I really wanted Joe to become a Resident, like physicians do before they specialize. Please, and thank you, in advance for any word on this.

    They already said it does.

    Fantastic idea ! There are so many good romantic status and yet they do so little in gameplay, I love this.

    D'Oh. LOL That's where I discovered Meaningful Stories. Sometimes I do worry about myself …

    Okay, up until the patch today, and I played for a couple of hours, without even realizing a patch was coming this morning, I played my game without incident. I have MCCC, Road to Fame, Meaningful Stories, Private Practice and Improved Relationships. I'm quite liking it. I do hope if it needs to be updated it will be soon. :)

    Shouldn't need too... it's all new files. Unless they make some drastic change to the proximity buffs system but that's unlikely to happen.

    Why haven't the developers done this? This should be a BG thing!

    Great work!

    I messed that up this past patch. I made a copy of my games folder and the saves, too, just to be certain. But, I forgot one major element. I forgot to go offline. :open_mouth: I ended up patching with my Mods folder carefully pulled onto my desktop. Then got the word that MCCC was good to go. There was a hotfix, if memory serves for RTF to remove the Last Exception. I talked with the creator of the Improved Relationships and it was good to go, too. I played with those three installed and then added back one at a time, Private Practice and Meaningful Relationships. So far, so good.

    Nope, but you need to have script mods enabled.

    Did you know that you can disable automatic updates? Open Origin, choose Origin from the menu at the top left of the screen, open application and you should see a toggle for automatic updates.

    Yes, that part was already done and still is turned off. But, it wouldn't allow me to access my game until I updated. Bonxie is very good at giving us all the heads-up and what we need to do if we intend to continue playing with our mods, until they are updated, too. I just forgot that all-important, set it to offline, bit. :open_mouth:
