Unlocked Tv Channels And More Fun - Sims 3
« on: 2009 August 09, 18:33:48 »

Unlocked TV Channels And More Fun enables Sims to watch any of the tv shows and gain Fun from watching the shows just like their Sims 2 cousins did.

No more Sim TV Trait discrimination! Anybody can pick up a remote and flip the TV on to watch their show without worrying about the In Soviet Russia TV Watch You Group telling them they can't watch this show or that show without certain traits! Viva Watch TV Freedom!


Unlocked Channels:

Super Shopping Network
Fishing Fracas
Cookin' Cable
Terror TV
Halls of History
Action World
KidZ Zone
Romantic Rendezvous
Got Garden?

*The two Work Out options were already enabled by default.

Affected TVs:

Cheap (The Very Cheap TV With Bad Reception)
Moderate (Next to Cheap Floor Model)
Moderate Flat Screen (Flat Screen Floor Model)
Expensive (Wall Flat Screen)
TV Wall (The Most Expensive Wall TV - About $8000)

These TVs have their distinct own behaviors and interactions.


I modified a number of interactions to boost the Fun motive on the different types of TVs. EA's default Fun values range from 20 to 65. These EA default values did not make significant impact on the Fun motive. Sims could sit for hours to watch TV and not gain any Fun at all. I increased the EA default value to 70 so that the Fun motive could increase visibly to make TV watching worthwhile to have a TV around.

What's Not Modified:

The Cheap TVs still give a negative Bad Reception buff as these TVs should.

Thanks so much this is a great addition to the modding of S3... too bad EAxis is so stu-upid to think that we wouldn't want our sims to have lots of fun watching TV... thanks again !   Grin
