Reduced Townie Generating by Shimrod101
This mod prevents the constant generating of Homeless Townie households found in the Manage Households window. In my game it appears to be stopped completely except for the creation of individual sims who are Service Sims like the Maids, Gardeners for the parks, Pizza Purveyors, the Fishermen and Mailman.
In the save game I have tested this on the most, after around 8-12 days have gone by there are 11 individual sims who have been created in total; one each day or sometimes two in one day or whatever. Almost all of these 11 sims I have identified as Service Sims by seeing them in their uniform. The game requires these Service Sims so it is perfectly fine that they are still here. The amount of 11 Service Sims is approximately correct according to my reckoning, plus one Grim Reaper who is always hidden from view in this Window, done with intent by the devs (he is a member of a Homeless Household, yes). My screenshot shows five of these Service Sims, but the screenshot is of course otherwise worthless.

I just noticed the ‘daily tasks’ thing when you hover over your job performance, so I decided to start going for that. Circe’s task was to be mean to people. Sims pass by the house all the time (usually newly spawned townies because this game can’t stop spawning townies), so she took at a jab at them. It helps to be Evil.

(Circe pouring the slushie on the ground is a failed attempt to “throw drink” at that townie.)

Circe was lookin’ a bit too dressed down for her age, so I changed her casual wardrobe again. This is her default outfit.

Things you can do and cannot do in the Sims 4

  • What you can do: Breed frogs that you have on hand

image

….to make many combinations of frogs

image

  • What you cannot doDespite one of the items for the fountains being described as “The perfect size for a frog”, you cannot actually place the frogs into a fountain or a pond.
  • What you can do: You can place them in your house by having them sit in tiny terrariums with no water, which the only interactions possible is looking at the frog and going “Yep, that’s a frog”.

image

While they blink and stare

image

Scrutinizing. Waiting.

image

Anger slowly building up by the minute, as they formulate their plans and learn your behaviors. Soon then, they will dispose of their abusive and cruel master, and create a new order where Amphibians know no kings

image

and you WILL BE FIRST. THEY WILL LEAVE NO OUNCE OF YOUR BODY UNSPILLED, AND NOT EVEN DEATH WILL BE OF SOLACE FROM THE PAIN YOU WILL ENDLESSLY ENDURE.

  • What you cannot doGo for a nice swim.

OK, I think these are just about ready - mods to replace the Bro trait and the Insane trait. Why? Because I didn’t like them as they were. So there’s three mods to choose from here, one that replaces the Bro trait with the Wanker trait, one that replaces the Insane trait with the Eccentric trait and one that replaces both. You can only have one at a time and they will conflict with any other mods that alter the game strings.

Please note, these only alter the text. I can’t change the icons (yet) and the game behaviour is still the same. Eccentric sims will still experience random emotions, only now they’re not hiiiiiilarious nonsense and Wankers will still have their own super duper special completely platonic hug.

Links!
Eccentric trait | Wanker trait | Both
Save them in your Mods folder, that’s all there is to it.

Fancy having a go at changing some strings too? Perhaps you want to change the Mean trait to the Asshole trait, or rename WooHoo to Shag Like Bunnies or Tell A Joke About Dicks instead of Ducks. To do so, you’ll need to use S4PE to export the .stbl data from Strings_ENG_US.package (usually found in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4\Data\Client folder) and edit it with TS4 STBL Editor found here. Once edited, simply right-click the package, replace the .stbl data and save it as a new package in your Mods folder. I don’t recommend saving over the original, you never know when you might need it again.

Here’s the “bro hug” for you, fraulinefive. They can also bump hips.

"It’s always a good time when there are other bros in your broximity!"

Also, “Discuss Conquests” is a thing. (even when the conquests are…each other? Let’s just say it’s too late for these two to have a platonic bromance)

Energized sims can hip bump anyway, so that’s not new. Thanks tho!

Well, now I just need to learn how to replace words. I mean, I had motivation before, but that was really obnoxious to read…

what does the bro hug animation look like? I don’t want to go through the trouble of making more sims to find out.

It makes me pretty sad that EA didn't add Power and Creativity aspirations in any of the later EPs, but they added stupid Grilled Cheese. :(

wow dissing Grilled Cheese RUDE :P

Yeah, adding other aspirations would be nice, but I think eventually it would be too much and too specific.

How do you get your game (TS4) to not crash (other than not visiting other lots)? I have the latest crack, v6 I think, and although traveling-crashes are a rarity, it still happens. :/

Is the game itself updated (not just the crack)? Maybe turn down your graphics? I still have crashing, mind you, but rarer than before. This game eats up like 1 mil of my memory…
