Which xml tuning file is it where you can change the parameters of the jealous broadcaster?
2  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / Re: Better Maid & Babysitter on: 2009 June 30, 20:27:02
I'm about to test these, but I had a small question:
You said you have: "Increased the pool size (workers) to 4 each." Could you explain what that means? Does it mean that there will be maids/babysitters in rotation? Or does it mean that up to four maids/babysitters can now show up at a time? Or something else?


Just thought I'd try to add more variety than the usual 2. Haven't tested long enough to see if there are actually 4 different or not.

If someone knows the appropriate <AppropriateAgeFlags> setting for Elders that would be cool. I took a guess & set it to 64,seems to work but just making sure.

AppropriateAgeFlags
Child    4
Teen   8
YA      32
Adult   48
Elder   ??

I made an elder babysitter but unfortunately the 3 times I loaded the game they were all males.If interested let me know.
4  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / Better Maid & Babysitter on: 2009 June 30, 15:10:06
Are you tired of your maid not doing his/her job? No more clowning around.Work I tell you,work!
Not compatible with my changes mod.


Babysitter
No more teen babysitters - (Adults only) Only ran a small test & had no problems with the feeding,changing diapers or paying attention to.Note if you have 8-10 kids don't expect 1 babysitter to do the job....
Compatible with my other mods.

Increased the pool size (workers) to 4 each.

Elder Babysitter....in testing  Works
Problem Noted: Once you use this in your game & decide to remove ,you may have to start a new game if you want the default teens back as there aren't any service elder npc's starting out by default.Only use one or the other sitter packages.
5  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / Auto Flush Toilets + Wash Hands on: 2009 June 30, 07:45:06
All sims except for slobs will close the lid & wash their hands.No more trying to flush the damn toilets,because they auto flush every time.Also an autoflushtoiletsonly package,with default settings.

Toilets still need cleaned but I have yet seen one that needs plunged.

What about sleeping? I have a couple homeless sims and I hate asking every night if they can sleep over just so they don't get yelled at.

Updated the file,had missed sleeping in bed.
7  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / Re: Slower eating (in testing), faster stove cooking on: 2009 June 28, 11:24:33
It doesn't. The overeating trigger is based on a "Stuffed" buff that occurs when a sim overeats by consuming multiple items of food. It is no longer based on micromanagement of the hunger meter.

Been wandering why my sim never gained weight,thanks for clearing that up,like this system much better.
8  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / Re: "Make yourself at home" mod on: 2009 June 28, 11:15:26
You missed a package file for one.

It's possible,which one? Mind you I did get 98 of them right.  Grin Lack of sleep...not a good thing,corrected. lol
9  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / "Make yourself at home" mod on: 2009 June 28, 10:21:49
If you have the bathe anywhere package,remove it & install this.
Do repairs
Bathe
Use Computer
Clean
Cook
No longer will sims make stupid faces & noises because no one cares!

If I missed something let me know.

*Update:Added 9 missed instances*
10  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / Re: Slower eating (in testing), faster stove cooking on: 2009 June 28, 04:55:35
Here's a file to help speed up preparation time.It's for the stirring the mixing bowl,default was 2,5 & 8 seconds.If you'd like all the cooking files I have let me know,mostly just removed the extra loop animations & sped up the process.Might save you some time.

Interesting, thank'ee - I'd managed to extract all the cooking files but got a bit fed up with looking through them for specifics.  My faster cooking mod is for stoves only, I have yet to add barbecue functionality but I will eventually.  Stove cooking was noticeably faster with my mod in and accurate enough for my tastes - I spend more time chopping, mixing, and preparing than I do cooking, for the most part.

Sims should not enfattenate with my slower eating mod cos I've accounted for hunger per bite in each iteration, assuming that has anything to do with weight gain in this game.

I'll get to actually play testing my mod now and adding polish where needed.

Here's all the files you'll need,have fun.
11  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / Re: Faster Eating & Cooking on: 2009 June 28, 03:45:50
Czezechael has a mod up for slower eating that works fine,unless you'd like an update from me then you'll have no problems using her mod.
12  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / Re: Slower eating (in testing), faster stove cooking on: 2009 June 28, 03:23:00
The most bites I could get from a plate of pancakes was 28. I also set the food per bite to 5.3 and that filled up the hunger bar when almost in the red. So your 2 times speed looks good,regardless haven't noticed my sim gaining weight when overeating,unlike the previous installment.
13  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / More Investment Opportunities on: 2009 June 28, 01:49:54

Finished the Bathe Anywhere package,found a few files I missed.Removed the "InappropriateForVisitor" value for sitting on the toilet & in the bathtub.Updated file in 1st post.
I thnk that this is a two way street. Meaning that visiting sims won't hesitate to use your shower either. I didn't test this though.

Fell free to test it.I only tested the shower at an acquaintance home during the day & it worked without interference.

Would you be willing and able to extend that to repairs? It annoys me that my skilled tinkerers get told off for lending a helping hand by fixing stuff at other Sims' homes.


That was going to be my next project,you must have read my mind.I agree it's quite annoying.
19  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / Re: Faster Eating & Cooking on: 2009 June 24, 19:31:16
Just added the Microwave,cook twice as fast.That should complete the faster cooking items & will add as a separate file shortly.Updated file in 1st post.

Update:

Added Grill & Barbecue items for faster cook outs.
Any interaction to do with mirrors has been lowered!

Added as separate package the ability to bathe at anyone's home.In other words 10 people won't be standing at the bathroom door wanting to kick your as*,because it's "Appropriate,not Inappropriate"!

Updated file in 1st post.
21  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / Re: Faster Eating & Cooking on: 2009 June 24, 07:14:31
Can you make faster cooking only on stove? I found that preparing food is not that long, but cook on stove is like forever.

And also longer eating? So there's a change to make a whole household members have dinner together. No eating alone.

Can you make it separated package file?

Yes,I can make a separate file.Not sure about the longer eating part,the default is 15 bites per meal & I changed it to 8 & adjusted the hunger per bite at 20.

Update: Makeout for sims on sofas & beds has been set to 15 min.,the default was 30.Updated the file in 1st post.
22  TS3/TSM: The Pudding / Pudding Factory / Faster Eating & Cooking on: 2009 June 24, 02:46:21
This mod speeds up the eating & cooking process.Also eating out will be a little faster.

Other tweaks added are:
Sims will not get annoyed when a guest makes the bed.
Faster movement around town.
Takes less time to bathe when using Bath & bubble bath on the Shower of Power.
Sims won't endlessly walk around when talking on the phone.
Added Grill & Barbecue items for faster cook outs
Any interaction to do with mirrors has been lowered!
Brushing teeth no longer takes 20 minutes to complete!
Microwave added,cook twice as fast.

Tweaked the rate you can "Call Over" sims.
*Makeout time on beds & sofas has been cut to 1/3.
*Sped up stirring process on mixing bow


Notes:The Excessinator stove hasn't been tweaked as I couldn't find the file to do so as it's content from the Sims 3 store.Any item bought from The Sims 3 store will not be affected.
The faster movement speed may conflict with Awesomemod,will change upon request,all needed to do is remove 1 file.

Added as separate package the ability to bathe at anyone's home.In other words 10 people won't be standing at the bathroom door wanting to kick your as*,because it's "Appropriate,not Inappropriate"! Item is finished & complete.

Faster Cooking Only Mod has been uploaded.Do not combine with the Changes file.Slightly enhanced cooking speed on stoves a bit more.**Sped up stirring process on mixing bowl.

Uploaded an XML file that you can adjust the bills for those who know how.Those that don't get this to make the package file: http://www.simlogical.com/Sims3ToolsForum/index.php?topic=171.0

I have one if not already mentioned...

I created a pond on a residential lot,decided to flatten lot in build mode...here's the kicker
My family keeps wanting to fish!I even tried adding new grass.They keep walking around the area where the pond was & have in their cue fish using.... Shocked
24  TS2: Burnination / Oops! You Broke It! / Re: Apartment Life Borkiness, or how i ended the world in 1 hour. on: 2008 September 01, 22:32:38
Influence To: Bathe doesn't work on residential lots,but works in Apartments.
Not sure if this has been mentioned yet.Anyone else notice this?
25  TS2: Burnination / Peasantry / Re: Updated Monique's Cheap Computer (FreeTime) - New Fixed/Final Version Availa on: 2008 April 29, 23:33:29
Thanks for the good work & updating this. Have a problem & a question. Can't purchase the love potion or cologne from the shop online Gypsy. It keeps canceling out,I did manage to get a cologne purchase once,no love potion yet.I've used a conflict utility to check compatibility with other hacks in my downloads folder,nothing shows up as a problem.

I've patched my game with the latest patch that was released & removed because of installations issues by EA,installed fine for me though.

Now the question..do loans or deposits accumulate interest in your bank online?
                                                                                                                  Thanks
