Modding and Troubleshooting The Sims 3

Horse mod: No Autonomous Exit Box Stall, multiple flavors

This was another request by the very nice people over at Equus Sims.

This mod is compatible with patch 1.36.

NEW FLAVOR Available at Simlogical!

Important Details:

  • This mod requires the Sims 3 PETS Expansion Pack.
  • This mod was built with patch 1.31 and I cannot guarantee that it will be compatible with any other patch level. Because it alters the Motives XML, it will very likely be incompatible with all major update patches. Check back for updates before putting this mod in your game after patch

Compatibility:

  • This mod is NOT compatible with any other mod that alters the Exit_BoxStall ITUN and Motives XML resources in the GameplayData.package.
  • This mod WILL conflict with my No/slower Social and Exercise Decay for Horses mods. It will also conflict with any other mod that changes motive decay in the game, including Twoftmama’s motive decay mods.
  • If you are not sure if a mod will conflict with another, use Delphy’s Sims 3 Dashboard Tool to check.

What does it do?

This mod disallows autonomous use of the “Exit” interaction on the Box Stall for horses. Additionally, it changes the decay rate for the hidden motive “BoxStallBoredom” for Horses.

Again, these mods are not compatible with my No/Slower Social and Exercise Decay for Horses mods. Please choose one of the flavors listed below.

Flavor Description
No Autonomous Exit Box Stall Horses do not autonomously exit the box stall, and the BoxStallBoredom motive does not decay.
No Autonomous Exit Box Stall, Slower Social and Exercise Decay Horses do not autonomously exit the box stall. BoxStallBoredom motive does not decay. Social and Exercise motives decay significantly slower. See the table below for exact motive decay rates.
No Autonomous Exit Box Stall, No Social and Exercise Decay Horses do not autonomously exit the box stall. The BoxStallBoredom, Social and Exercise motives do not decay.

NOTE: This mod will not stop all autonomous exiting of the box stall. If a horse’s motives are too low, the horse will stop what it’s doing and go satisfy its motives some other way. This means: if your horse’s Social and Exercise motives fall to a critical level, they will leave their stall anyhow and do something else. All other needs can be satisfied inside the Box Stall.

Motive decay rate changes for the Slower Social and Exercise motive decay flavor:

Original Social Decay New Social Decay Original Exercise Decay New Exercise Decay
Horse -8.33/hr -.71/hr -17.86 -.78/hr
Unicorn -6.67/hr -.57/hr -11.43/hr -.5/hr

If you have any problems with your horses leaving their box stalls too much, let me know and I’ll see what I can do. I am not comfortable removing the motive exit (when a sim stops doing something to satisfy a critical motive) for those two motives as I don’t want people to get their horses taken away.
