New mods and Help!


So here are two I created that seem to work well:

Another Romantic option - this one a free night at home watching tv

This one I’m not sure what I’ve done wrong. Can you help?

I noticed a lot of conversation and gossip interests, but no activity for gossip so I created a telephone chat:

#,NORMAL,phonechat,Phone Chat,Call some of your friends to gossip.,,SOCFLAG_HOMEBASED,,"_random,1.0",Let's talk about the latest gossip!,0,0,-1,-1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,8,-1,#,"gossip,1.0","conversation,1.0","stress,-0.3,0.5","culture_arts,0.08,_CULTURE_DEGRADE","iq_logic,0.25,_LOGIC_DEGRADE","stress,-0.1,0.3","glob_dirt,0.09,1.0","weight,0.02,0.97","boredom,-0.25,0.5",,,,,,



I took a look in the debugger.
you need this:

#,NORMAL,phonechat,Phone Chat,Call some of your friends to gossip.,SOCFLAG_HOMEBASED,"_random,1.0",Let’s talk about the latest gossip!,0,0,-1,-1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,8,-1,#,“gossip,1.0”,“conversation,1.0”,#,“stress,-0.3,0.5”,“culture_arts,0.08,_CULTURE_DEGRADE”,“iq_logic,0.25,_LOGIC_DEGRADE”,“stress,-0.1,0.3”,“glob_dirt,0.09,1.0”,“weight,0.02,0.97”,“boredom,-0.25,0.5”,#

basically you missed out a ‘#’ at the end (which separates the effects from the pre-requisites, in this case, none). and missed out the ‘#’ earlier on which separates the interests it applies to (gossip etc) from the effects.

Also, it’s set up to have a minimum of 8 people to chat to before you can do it, I presume you want that to be much lower :smiley:
It’s also worth setting a ‘host cost’, because presumably you are paying for the phone bill?

Nice idea for an activity though, in fact they are all really cool!


Ah, I’ll figure out what it all means. I thought the 8 was how many people could do it at one time - I was thinking major party connect… LOL Thanks for your help!

Now I’m working on more for commuting. I’ll try those tips and see if I can get them to work better.


ok, my turn for help?

Snuggling on a couch works, except that it’s not limited to romance! :open_mouth:

The others aren’t working at all. I copied, pasted precisely as they are posted here.

As for sledding, it IS snowing, I have ski-ing and snowball fighting available.


I revamped the snuggling activity, and now I can’t get anybody but my sweetheart to do it:

#,ROMANTIC,snugglingoncouch,Snuggling On Couch,Just the two of us and the tv…,SOCFLAG_HOMEBASED,data/sounds/gigglekiss.ogg,"_random,1.0",How about we stay in tonight and snuggle on the couch while watching tv?,0,0,-1,-1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2,2,#,“television,1.0”,“conversation,1.0”,#,“stress,-0.1,0.4”,“glob_dirt,0.06,1.0”,“boredom,-0.35,0.5”,#,"_romance,1.0",

See if that works for you.


Thank you; I love it!


how do i download this??


You cut it and paste it – there’s no file to download, so you copy the relevant lines from the post to your clipboard or Notepad or something. Sometimes the poster is considerate and tells you where to put things, sometimes you have to look it up. Still, it’s all pretty simple. That cliffski is a smart guy!


for some reason the sledding causes the game to crash on start (the other event works fine)…

#,NORMAL,sledding,Sledding! What fun!,sledding,"_random,1.0",Hey it’s snowing! How about we ride down that huge hill in the park!,0,0,-1,-1,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2,-1,#,“sports,0.8”,#,“stress,-0.3,0.5”,“tiredness,0.1,0.6”,“fitness,0.05,0.1”,“weight,-0.01,0.97”,“boredom,-0.35,0.5”,#,“weather_snow,0.2”,"_energy,0.4",

any clue ?
