Latest version : package file with modified date : 2/18/2018 07:12 AM. Please make sure you have the latest version.

Want to see your pregnant sims have pregnancy mood swing ? Or may be your teen sims experience mood swing ? Or having your adult sims get midlife crisis ? Then try this mod in your game. (Do not confuse "mood" in this mod with mood in term of state of motives in sims 2).

UPDATES :


First things first :
Compatibility :
This mod is not compatible with base-game-only. The resources I've overriden are taken from Apartment Life, but in the coding also contains functions and constants from Freetime and University

What does this mod do ?
This mod gives you three kind of main events based on wants-refresh event (so, the events that this mod offered only happened on want/fear check or want/fear refresh). These main event are :

PREGNANCY MOOD SWING

TEEN MOOD SWING

ADULT MIDLIFE CRISIS

Conflicts :
Known Conflict :
  • inTeen, where this mod "add memory function conflict with "Abort pregnancy" function from inteen. A plugin package for compatibility has been upload, please download that plugin. Please do not forget to rename this mod main package into "zzzz_pqw_mood_swing.package" if you use inTeen.
Technically, this mod will conflict with other mods that override these game resources :

Flavours:
  • To simplified the mod maintenance in the future, there will be only one flavour of this mod, the one that contains all events : teen mood swing, pregnancy mood swing and adult midlife crisis + 1 DEMO version.
  • Want to set your own chances other than explained above ? Do not worry, just open your package using SimPE. Open resources as shown in picture number 5, and change the value (from 0 to 100), commit and save.
  • if you want to disable teen mood swing, set 0 to "% teen mood swing", "mood threshold for additional % chance teen" and "max % additional chance teen" values.
  • if you want to disable adult midlife crisis, set 0 to "% adult midlife crisis", "mood threshold for additional % chance adult" and "max % additional chance adult" values.
  • if you want to disable pregnancy mood swing, set 0 to "% pregnancy mood swing" value.

Install :
  • Just put my mod in Downloads folder of your sims 2 data. If this mod does not work, try to change the load order, like rename my mod to "z_pqw_mood_swing.package".
  • For inTeen user, please make sure this mod and all of its plugin, if any, are loaded after inTeen, by checking if there is "zzzz_" in front of original filename, and adding "zzzz_" if they have not been renamed yet.
  • This mod should be load after "pqw_afterschoolactivity.package" and "pqw_afterworkactivity.package" and their plugins if any. If you do not change the name of those packages and this package, then it should be just fine, as it complies the load order.
  • It is adviced for you to backup your nhood once in a while and before installing this mod just in case.

Additional Credits :
  • Creators of SimPE
  • EA and sims wikia since icon and memory wording for "midlife crisis" I took from sims wikia of sims 3
