Reduced Mourning from Death Notifications

Updates

Updated for V1.47. Although EA tinkered with the mourning system, their alterations did not change much.

Overview

This tuning mod reduces the Duration and Intensity of Mourning that happens when Sims are notified by phone call of a death of someone they know.

In particular, mourning for the death of sims with which there is a minor relationships level, like friends and acquaintances, is backed off very significantly.

Major relationships like parents and a spouse are not changed from the EA settings.

Description

Sims are getting phone calls advising them or the death of a sim with which they have some sort of relationship. A very long mourning period with a very strong sad buff is then applied to the sim. This seems fine if the relationship is for a parent or spouse. However, a sad +3 buff that lasts for 2 days just because some random sim with a friend relationship level has died seems wrong.

This tuning mod reduces the level of the sad buff and applies it for a shorter time for the more minor relationships.

For other relationships, and there are a lot, no changes have been made. The major relationships like parent, child and spouse still have a Sad +3 buff for 2880 hours (2 days).


Scope of Mod

This mod only changes mourning that happens as a result of phone notification of a death. Witnessing a death first hand and seeing the Reaper doing her stuff is not affected by this mod.

The mod was built with V1.46(pc). It is not compatible with earlier versions of the game.
