Showtime: Better Gigs for your Performers

This is a simple XML Tuning mod which makes it easier (or harder) for your sims to perform Legendary shows, even when you let them do the entire show autonomously. This mod is available at ModTheSims.

Updates:

28 March 2012 – Added New Flavor: More Legendary Gigs. Makes it easier to perform a legendary gig at all career levels.

Important Details:

  • This mod requires the Sims 3 Showtime Expansion Pack. Using it without Showtime should not have any effect on your game, but it will be a totally useless waste of space.
  • This mod will only affect the Acrobat, Singer, and Magician performance Careers from the Showtime Expansion Pack.
  • This mod was built with patch 1.33 and is compatible patch 1.31 and 1.32 as well.  Due to its simplicity, this mod may not necessarily require an update after major patches. It’s always best to check in, though.

Compatibility:

  • This mod will conflict with any other mod that alters the PerformanceMeter_0x9712ea904535f8ec resource in the GameplayData.package. I do not currently know of any other mods that do this.
  • This mod should not conflict with any script or core mods.
  • If you are not sure if a mod will conflict with another, use Delphy’s Sims 3 Dashboard Tool to check.
Flavors:
Use only one flavor!
Flavor Changes
Autonomous Gigs Removes penalties for Autonomous and Repeat interactions. All other factors are unchanged.
Better Gigs
  • Penalty removed for repeat interactions.
  • Skill multiplier bonus increased by 1 at max level for all 3 performance careers.
  • Engaging trait (LTH Reward) bonus doubled (increased from .05 to .1)
  • Natural Performer trait bonus increased to .20 (up from .15)
  • Venue bonus for Big Show venues increased to .5 (same as Private Venues, up from 0)
  • Penalty for Autonomous interactions removed (original: .8 negative multiplier for autonomous interactions)
Harder Gigs
  • Increases threshold for Legendary Shows to .90 (up from .85) for all three performance careers.
  • Penalty for Repeat interactions increased to .6 (up from .5).
  • Penalty for Autonomous interactions increased to .90 (up from .80).
More Legendary Gigs
  • Penalty removed for repeat interactions.
  • Skill multiplier bonus increased by 1 for all career levels (except level 10) for all 3 performance careers. Level 10 skill multiplier increased by 1.5
  • Engaging trait (LTH Reward) bonus increased to .2 (up from .05)
  • Natural Performer trait chance to ignore mistakes/negative updates increased to .95 (up from .8)
  • Natural Performer trait bonus increased to .25 (up from .15)
  • Venue bonus for Big Show venues increased to .5 (same as Private Venues, up from 0)
  • Penalty for Autonomous interactions removed (original: .8 negative multiplier for autonomous interactions)
  • Initial starting bonus based on career level increased by .1 for all career levels and all performance careers.

If you would like your own flavor, please ask! I will be more than happy to make one. I just don’t feel like guessing what other people might like in their own games.

Notes:

  • I have only tested Better Gigs with a sim who had both the Natural Born Performer trait and the Engaging LTH Reward. She performed a Legendary show with one use directed interaction (Told her to sing first song, I totally forgot I did this the first time I wrote this up).
  • This mod does not alter the threshold required for a legendary performance.
  • Skill multiplier bonus is only increased for level 10 of the careers.
  • This means, earlier on in the career, it will still be a little harder to have a legendary performance, but it will be easier once you hit level 10 (and/or purchase the Engaging LTH Reward).
  • Autonomous and repeat interactions will not have a negative effect on any shows performed, regardless of the career level.
