Misc. Tips In progress


Sunburn Settings

Sunburn occurs when Sims stay outside in the sun too long. It was introduced with Seasons
See: Wiki Sunburn

A Few Tips:
  • Only a parasol, eating a snow cone or having them go inside will help them with lowering their temperature.
  • The sunburnt effect can be removed by CTRL clicking the sunburnt moodlet to delete it (requires testing cheats enabled in Overwatch) or remove it with MC.
  • Weather environment might be the determining factor. Change the Settings in Retuner: From City Hall or a computer:
  • Retuner:Settings>General>By Tunable XML> Aims3.Gameplay.ActorSystems>SimTemperature>kTemperatureThresholdToGetSunburned / 110.0


TIP: Silence The "Bad" Reputation Moodlet

Spooky Music

Spooky Music coming from a lot in your game that has the ghosts on it for ghost hunters to take care of. This mod gets rid of that spooky music:
No Music During Firefighter & Ghosthunter Jobsby Shimrod. You have to be registered at that site to see and download the mod, but it's free registration.
OR: Disable the Career using Story Progression.


TIP: Create Your Own Special Effects Mod

The No Effects Mod Tool by velocitygrass at MTS

Puddles Spawning

DebugEnabler or Retuner have options to manage puddles.
Puddles will spawn when plumbing objects are in need of a Repairman or a Sim to manually fix the broken sink or tub.

To clean up puddles using DebugEnabler: Click on the broken object>NRaas>DebugEnabler>Click on the pop up identifying the object>Scroll down a bit to "Remove Puddle"
TIP: DebugEnabler also offers options for fixing and upgrading TV's Computers, Dishwashers,etc.This same method can be used

More Options are available in Retuner
From City Hall or a computer>NRaas>Retuner>Settings>General>By XML>Sims3.Gameplay.Controllers.PuddleManager
Options Are:
<kMaxPuddleRadius value="15">
-Text only available in the Core Tuning file <!--Number of tiles a puddle can spread from the origin tile. This is capped at 20 to prevent stack overflow-->
<kPuddleTerrainLifetime value="120">

Remove Accumulated Notifications

Master Controller is needed
If you have a large number of notifications in the upper right corner of your screen and want to get rid of them do this:
From City Hall, a computer or just click on the ground>NRaas>Master Controller>Town>Clear Notifications Note: this will not stop or disable future notifications. If you prefer not to receive notifications from one of the mods see that mods settings to start or stop notifications if they are available.

Spawners

This Category is in the Process of being updated
Where to find Spawners to place in game and how to identify what's in each spawner package.
If you are looking for spawners to add to your world they can be found by: Open the Cheats Box>type in testingcheatsenabled true. Then open the cheats box again and type in buydebug on
When you go into Build/Buy in the Buy mode sorted by Function you will see a question mark (?)
Most of the tabs are self explanatory except Rodents, Birds and Reptiles. Those spawners are in the Fishing category.
