Easel Usage fix (Updated 16 June 2006)
« on: 2005 November 05, 00:18:12 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Ever had a sim start using every easel in the house and then never touch them again?
This hack will prevent sims using multiple easels. Once a painting has been started, the sim can only use that easel until the painting is finished/scrapped. This does not affect the portrait option.



Compatible with Uni and NL (Not sure about the origonal)

Updated for OFBp2 (Download the correct one)

Use the basic one (NOT the OFB one) for PETS (MAXIS is going backwards)

Now that's a mod I'll definitely try. I hate when they do that, especially when I have sims that still need to finish skilling. I'm assuming it works for all easels, even recolored ones? I know, potentially stupid question, but hey, what can I say.

Inge's is a separate object which does basically the same thing.
This is a global hack that will change the easels in the game. There should be no compatibility issues, but I don't see why you would need both.

Having Inge's in large dorms is useful so you can keep track on who's painting is who's, but your fix will be great in houses where you give each kid an easel (but don't want to make it just for them) and mum insists on starting a painting at 3am!

Pity about the clones, two of my favourite easels are clones!  But I guess I'll just keep those for single sims who live alone!

Does it only affect autonomous easel usage, or are you not allowed to intentionally cause a sim to hog the easels, perhaps because you're deliberately hoarding finished paintings for selling at a later date, or intentionally denying the easels to less talented painters?

It affects all easel usage.  I find it useful to know if a sim has started a painting elsewhere. Although once a painting is finished, you can start on another easel.

Groovy, baby.  I've always wondered why sims can't scrap another's painting on their own.. At least now I won't have to worry about it so much.

Cheers! (and many thanks).

Aha! I was just coming to report a problem with this and OFB P2, and noticed you've already fixed it.  Not sure how I missed the update, but great work and thanks!

I had a problem with it too, I was finding that once a painting was started, nobody could go back to it, not even the Sim who started it.  I couldn't remember where I got the mod from and was getting quite panicky, so I'm glad I found it.

Yeah!!  Thanks for updating this Crammyboy!  Since installing OFB I admit my sims haven't done a lot of painting and I just realized a few days ago I had a problem.  Of course I was blaming it something else.  I had taken that out then today realized I still had the same problem!

Part of the reason is I only just realized it is that oddly enough, it seems to have been sporadic because I've had some sims paint, stop painting and finish them later, while others just can't continue to paint.

This is one of my favorite mods so I'm glad to see the update. Smiley

AncientSim, this might help you to be able to remember from where your mods came.  I have mine under a folder called Mods, then sub-folders by creator's name.  When I started the troubleshooting process I moved everyone's mods out, then started putting them back in folder-by-folder.  When I put Crammyboy's folder back in and found the problem I knew exactly where to go to find the update.

I'm a little slow noticing there is an update OFB, but I'm so glad.  This was one hack that I really missed.  Thank you! Smiley

Not sure if anyone with Pets has noticed yet or not, but this hack is broken in the new EP.  Sims can still paint.  But once they stop they only get the option to Scrap it.  Not Continue it.

Yea, isn't that the stupidest thing.  They're going to have to put out a patch just to bring the code back up to the level they had a month ago....

I was thinking about just grabbing the OFBp2 code, but it would need checking to see if they have added any pets related stuff that would need putting in too.
