AM is Borking Vampires.

THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I RFTM and I checked the config. However, other than Vampire Skilling, the manual said nothing about them. Once I install AM, the normal debuff Burning Up from staying out in the sun happens AS SOON AS I LEAVE A BUILDING, and continues to tick, even in cars. Before AM, it would take like three hours before the Burning Up Moodlet occurred, then another 3 hours until Burning Up would turn into Too Much Sun. And it also seemed to not tick in cars, but I can't be sure because I couldn't have the minute-by-minute moodlet update. Did we mean to bork this or didn't we?

My guess would that you're playing a VAMPIRE and VAMPIRES DO NOT BELONG OUT IN THE SUN.

I use AM and play a vampire in Bridgeport who doesn't burn as soon as she steps out on the street or on her balcony to paint. You have a borkness.

No, both of you are observing a phenomenon that makes perfect sense and is definitely a feature. The time it takes for a vampire to start burning is now variable and depends on some very obvious factors. It works this way in real life, too.

I did notice that if I bring up the SHIFT+CTRL debug menu and go to occult, service NPCs are suddenly all shown as already being vampire, although they are not actually vampires. Has anyone else got this issue?

Nope. That's also a dodgy EA command of dubious reliability, so I wouldn't trust what it says too much.

Well, I finally played with one of them vampire sims...and honestly, he didn't burn up fast enough, if you ask me...I've now got little vampire babies and toddlers and children all over Bridgeport... I realize EA doesn't want the game all that macabre, but there really ought to be more than one way to kill them and they really should be able to drain and thus kill (not just drink from or turn) sims. 

Also, the genetics seem skewed - he fathered 7 children before his 'untimely demise' and all 7 are vampires. None of the mothers are - I assumed (obviously incorrectly) that there would be a 50/50 chance of vampirism in his offspring born of normal females...joke's on me. So given that the only mod I use in game is AM - will these offspring who have 50% vampire genetics, but are in fact vampires, what are the odds their children will be vampires if they mate with a 'normal' sim?  I'm suspecting that the vampiric gene is dominant.

The good news is that at least they don't sparkle. I think we may have been given the 'True Blood' version of vampires as opposed to the 'Twilight' version. yay.

That's okay, but I WANTED the "Bloodsucking Fiends" version.

Tried several times to replicate the problem that I couldn't stop from happening before, and it's not going through. My only guess is that for a period, all of my vamps needed SPF 1,000. I just hulk smashed all my saved and now they're doing OK.

I don't see that happening. The producers themselves appear to be firmly anti-Sparklepire.

The -only- reason to use sparkle and vampire in the same setting is to poke fun at the idiots who think vampires are all sparkle-fluffy-bunny-happy.  I have no real objection to romantic goth vampires, that's actually been around longer then me, so its got longevity now.  But Vampires DO NOT FUCKING SPARKLE!  They are not unicorns, they are blood sucking monsters who may embrace this fact, or angst over it and try to retain their humanity, but they are not rays of sunshine.

That said, I've not seen a problem with them having sun issues, but then, I run with static motives since I find trying to keep their needs met tedious and dull.

Please.. do not request that Vampires be sparkly! God no, I prefer my Vampires to be the way they are. NON SPARKLY! Twilight lovers should run over to BBS or MTS to ask for that.

By the way, what was EA sniffing when they made the Eye Candy reward for Lifetime Happiness? Most useless feature ever.

Any requests for sparkly vampires will be mocked or ignored. Vampires Do Not Sparkle.

The only time a Vampire should sparkle is when they burst into flames as soon soon as they step outside in daylight.

Well, some vampires are more resistant to burning than others, in the current AwesomeMod. I challenge you to figure out how it works and which ones will burn faster than the others.

Without doing any testing or observing at all, I'll guess that vamps who EAT PEOPLE as opposed to juice boxes will take more sun damage.

I was thinking it would be vampires who had recently eaten who would be less harmed by the sun, but of course I have done no testing on this yet.  For some reason, actually playing a vampire hasn't really compelled my interest yet.

Surely it is more fun watching the sparkling ones burst into flames?  Watching them burn is the whole point of having sparkly!vamps at all.

As I am not a Twilight fan in any way, I have only hearsay to go by, but didn't the author make them sparkly in sun as opposed to burning up in sun? So operating on that assumption, one would assume a vampire could sparkle OR burn up in sunlight...not both.

And while I do follow True Blood and obviously see the similarity (the plasma juice boxes are a lame version of the bottled artificial blood in that show)...I honestly have decided that the vampires in game are just not all that fun...as Jolrei pointed out - the bloodsucking fiends version where there could be actual death from a vampire bite would be better, but I get why EA did things this way - we wouldn't want to scare the kiddies...so we get 'vampire-lite'.
