HACK RATING SYSTEM
« on: 2006 January 15, 09:44:02 »
THANKS THIS IS GREAT

I am currently considering a hack rating system, with soon-to-be-made graphics, based on the terror scale, as follows:

: Your game needs this to avoid bugs that cause lots, sims, and even entire neighborhoods corrupted/killed/turned into a BFBVFS. EX: Portal Deletion Fixes, Greek House Amnesia (Uni V1.0).

: Your game needs this to avoid bugs which will cause (sometimes seemingly random)forced resets and jumping, or data corruption that is reversible or has not yet exhibited extremely destructive side effects. EX: Vampire Fixes, Clothing Event Fix.

: Certain avoidable aspects of the game will not function correctly due to bugs and may produce undesirable effects, data corruption, and/or loss. EX: Dorm Billing Fix, Piano Fix, Pool Light Fix, No Corrupt Death, Lot Debugger

: Addresses stupid and annoying behavior associated with aspects of the game, which are not major bugs, are still annoying. EX: Crumplebottom Fix, Coffee Cup Hack, Phone Hack

: Addresses flavor-related aspects of the game. May make your game shinier but is not necessarily required for preservation of sanity. EX: PregForAll, Macrotastics, No20Khandout.

Ideally, it can be applied to the contents of the entire site.

Thank you this is great.  Grin

Seriously, I'd like to see it as a site-wide system, with twojeffs and Crammyboy participating as well.  It sounds like a good system.

I'd really like that too.

I'm new to downloading hacks from here and when I just downloaded the entire NL MATY zip I was so confused as to what did what, and what I really needed and what I didn't even want at all.. Luckily I found the "hacks description" which tells which does what, but still, I'd like to know what's optional and what's definitely needed.

Great idea, and would be very helpful for anyone wanting to know just exactly which ones carry the most importance for keeping their game from going nuclear!

*jumping on the bandwagon*

I really like the idea. There are some hacks that I'm not too interested in because they don't suit my game play style, but I would include them if they were critical fixes (and I was just too unawesome to realize it). Considering there are many of us that aren't as awesome as el presidente, it would help to know whether the modder considered the hack an enhancement or a necessary fix.

I don't think that it's any great secret about some of my messes, so yeh, I would like to see some sort of rating system.  2nite for example, my sims froze...I let them go thinking that it's not all roses, all Sims must die eventually,  (well I couldn't do much else as it wouldn't even let me return to the neighborhood), but even when they were at critical levels, no Reaper.  So maybe what you are proposing would help things like that occuring.

Annoyances will be the top of my list.  I re-installed sims a week ago with no hacks/cc and tried playing.  I lasted like umm 15 mins!  

The hack rating system is a fantastic idea, it will be so much easier to get the fixes/hacks we need.

Great. Start applying the Terror Scale to your existing stuff using the guidelines as above. Most Critical hacks probably fall into the Red (permanent data corruption) or Orange categories. More esoteric bugs that come up slightly less often in Yellow, Annoyances in blue, and all the weird flavor-mods in Green.

In which level do we need to get out the duct tape?

But seriously, thank you for this.  I don't like using hacks, but the fiery ball doesn't appeal to me either.

Don't green and blue need to be swapped to correspond with the color spectrum, or am I just crazy?

I guess because green is a more neutral color...
