Romantic Reputation Recombobulator

Alright.... the Romantic Rep Killer seems to be working fine, so here's the finished version. It's a bit "sledgehammer to a nut" at the moment. I'm fairly certain with a little work, it can actually be fixed. Or at least made bearable.

The current version has 2 versions.
Romantic Rep Recombobulator 50, 25, and 10 reduce the relationship hit of getting caught from -90 to -50 -25 and -10 respectively. It won't change your chances of getting caught. Yet.

Romantic Rep Recombobulator KillAll however will. It effectively completely disables the "Cheater" path of the Romantic Reputation system. All good effects re retained, but you can't get caught, the relationship won't be tanked if you do, and nobody will care anyway. In truth though, you shouldn't get caught in the first place, the other stuff is just there as a failsafe. (Wouldn't be the first time EA code ignores tuning, although all seemed to be working fine in testing)

Update: Version 2 is now available. Version 2 is the first attempt to actually fix the system.

Link2: RRRv2 is available here: (had to mirror due to MTS downtime)

Testers Wanted - The Romantic Rep Killer

So, I ran afoul of the stupid Romantic Reputation today. My Sim danced with a girl at Prom, they became Romantic Interests, but I never pursued it. Then later he got a girlfriend, and she decided to accuse him of cheating, completely tanking the relationship.

So I set out to do something about it.

Presenting, The Romantic Rep Killer.

This Mod should completely eliminate all negative effects of cheating from the Romantic Reputation system. Specifically, your significant other should never accuse you of cheating, no-one should see you cheating, and having a bad reputation will not hit your relationship with new partners.

This is a difficult thing to test by myself, as the chance of getting accused seem's to be a bit random. However if I have done this right, then your reputation should still change, you should still get the positive effects of being faithful, but no negative effects.

There should be no conflicts from this Mod. The resources it overrides are used exclusively for Romantic Rep so the chances of conflicts are pretty much 0.

This is a very early version, so don't be too surprised if not everything works. I haven't even given this a playtest myself yet.

Obviously please report all bugs, or if something isn't working. A detailed description of your Sim's romantic status with all partners (including Romantic Interests) would help. Also, please just don't post if it is working. I need to know that too!

Generations Compatibility.

The votes are in, the mods are done, and the cheese has been eaten.

All mods are now Generations compatible. Free Your Preggo doesn't need an update per se, it just has extra "modules" that can be tacked on if you want them, the old packages will still work fine, and in fact I'd encourage you to use them.

Other than that, the only mod that needed updating was Go For a Walk! Not a Run! which was causing Strollers to break.

Enjoy :)

Alright, I lied.

Forget what I said yesterday. I'm back again. I was out shopping today and wandered into GAME, where I realised saw "The Sims 3 Generations" Yeah, I couldn't resist. So updates are coming. Soon, tonight, or possibly tomorrow, depending on how lazy I'm feeling.

I'm not dead.

Massive apologies for the lack of updates and news lately.

Real world stuff has cut into my Simming time to the point where I haven't played at all. As all of my mods are stuff that I've made for myself, I haven't had an incentive to update.

At the moment all production is suspended, until such a time that I have time to start Simming again.

Have a good one.
