Quantum Power Pack Issues

Many people are experiencing issues with the Quantum Power Pack. The following information should be helpful in getting the most out of your Limited Edition content.

1. The most common reason that the Quantum Power Pack does not work is the ccmerged. In order for your sim to be able to transform into the power suit, the sim must get a moodlet from Quantum Power Pack. The moodlet triggers the transformation, so without it, the pack will not work. Repair your ccmerged or download a complete one.

2. On the same note, outdated mods that alter Premium Content moodlets will cause this issue, such as my Spell book tweaks mod (this mod has been updated). Update any premium content moodlet mods, or remove them, to ensure that the Quantum Power Pack will work.

3. If the Launcher did not properly install the Quantum Power Pack, you might experience issues. Try re-installing the pack a few times to get it working correctly. Note that the number one issue with the Quantum Power Pack is the ccmerged/outdated moodlet mods, so I recommend trying the first suggestion before re-installing.

4. Finally, if you have de-crapped your Quantum Power Pack (or installed a pirated version of it), it will not work. Instead, run your untouched sims3pack through s3rc and then install the pack as package files. Make sure you have the correct ccmerged. I recommend installing only the accessories/power suits as package files (i.e. install the decrapped sims3pack and then add only the packages for the accessories and power suits to your game. Don’t add the package for the stasis chamber).

New Mods!

I have a number of new mods out so I’ll just list them up.

Extra Credit Homework – If your sim’s kids are stuck bored at home all day due to snow days, sick days, or even holidays, give them something productive to do! With this mod, your sim kids can make up on missed school time by doing extra credit homework when they’re not in school. This mod adds a “Do Extra Credit Homework” interaction to all computers (including laptops) and MultiTabs in your game.

Store Dried Food – This mod adds a set of interactions to all treasure chests that will allow you to easily move custom edible food (dried food) to and from chests.

No Unfinished Room moodlet – This mod effectively removes the unfinished room moodlet. Under EA tuning, if a room has 0.2% missing wall or floor covering, the sim will have the unfinished room moodlet. With this mod, the room must have 99% missing wall or floor covering for the sim to receive the moodlet.

What’s my temperature? Script Mod to check Household Temperature Values

There’s no reason to rely on dodgy moodlets to be informed about your sim’s temperature. With this mod installed, you will be able to click on any sim and instantly get a report detailing the temperature of all sims in the target sim’s household.

Tutorial: How to Create and Load Custom Moodlets with a Pure Script Mod

I’ve written a new tutorial and have published it at Simlogical: How to Create and Load Custom Moodlets with a Pure Script Mod

This is a somewhat advanced tutorial, as it requires the user to know how to make a pure script mod. You can’t load and apply a custom moodlet if you don’t have a pure script mod, so if you’re interested in custom moodlets, you must learn how to make a pure script mod.

I  didn’t publish the tutorial here because it’s more advanced than my usual tutorials and I don’t wish to discourage any beginner modders. We can always use more modders, so if you’re interested in learning and have any questions, feel free to post a comment or send a PM at MTS or Simlogical.

Apple Barrels for your Horses!

I’ve uploaded a new scripted object at Simlogical: Apple Barrels! There are two kinds, and you can install both at the same time if you wish. Head on over to Simlogical to check out the download: Bloom’s Apple Barrels: Let your Horses Feast on Apples!

Here’s a preview for you:

Mod: Fit Atmosphere (Gym) Moodlet Fix

This mod adjusts the multiplier for the Athletic Skill when having the Fit Atmosphere moodlet so that your sim will actually gain athletic skill when working out at the gym. Additionally, this mod also alters the Fitness Multiplier at the Gym, and will cause your sims to lose weight and gain fitness faster when working out at the gym.

The EA tuning for these two multipliers is broken, as they are both set to “.5” which actually means that sims will gain athletic skill and fitness at half the normal rate. This mod adjusts the multipliers so that your sim will benefit from being at the gym.

Important Details:

  • This mod does not require any Expansion or Stuff Packs.
  • This mod was built with patch 1.33 but it should be compatible for many other patch levels, as it appears that EA has never touched this particular XML in a patch. However, I cannot guarantee this as I do not have multiple patch levels available for checking.
  • Going by EA’s pattern, this mod is very unlikely to require an update after a patch, but check back anyhow just in case,

Compatibility:

  • This is an XML tuning mod and should not conflict with any script or core mod.
  • This mod will conflict with any other mod that alters the BuffFitAtmosphere_0x7c229e6584751445 resource in the GameplayData.package .
  • This mod will conflict with corn!’s Fit Environment Multiplier mod available at ModTheSims.
  • This mod will not conflict with TwoftMama’s Lose Weight Gain Fitness Slower mod available at Naughty Sims’s Asylum, as that mod edits different XML files.
  • If you are not sure if a mod will conflict with another, use Delphy’s Sims 3 Dashboard Tool to check.
