46 Comments / replies (Who?) - 13 Feedback Posts, 10 Thanks Posts
1.45.62.1020 Tested ! No update required.
1.44.77/83/88.1020 Strictly Required Game Version.
Version 1.1 is out!
Version 0.9 is out! Request Version

Remember the first mod released in 2015 by IceM ? This will work and modified simillarly.
As the modder stop to support this mod, I decided to make it something useful again.

Whenever my sim needs to start it's plans within the day, I always got to be late so I decided to do something to fix this kind of scenarios. Imagine when you need to go on a date, parties, birthdays or any monkey business you've got you need 2-3 hours doing shower, eating and etc. My target is to do it in more realistic, so with the help of this mod you can actually do those things with just an hour or less depends on your modified value.

example
You will take a shower for about 30 sim minutes, as you modified your time speed doubled your sim will do it for 15 sim minutes.

1.1 Updates
Loop Sync tuning is Added.
Export Modes tuning is Added.
Fix where Patch 1.44.88 cause random game crash.

Request - version 0.9 Update
Supports game version from 1.36.XX.1020 to 1.43.14.1020
Loop Sync and Export Modes Tuning is included.
Modification instruction is same with the latest version.

Current file is set to have double(value of 50) than a normal sim day. You can modify this mod on your own, instructions below. I'm planning to support the mod in the future and give the best sims gameplay to you all.

This is a standalone mod so it will not conflict to other mods
This is a Pure Script Mod no XML Tuning is used

Installation
1. Do not UnZip the file.
2. Copy the zip file to your mods folder and not put it in any subfolder.
3. Run the game.

How to change the game time speed
1. Extract date_and_time.py inside the zip file
2. Open it with Notepad, Notepad++, Python IDLE or any py editor (I recommend Notepad++ or IDLE)
3. In line #7, change the value of DEFAULT_MILLISECONDS_PER_SECOND from 1 to 1000
4. Save your py file
5. Replace date_and_time.py inside the zip with your modified one
6. Run the game

Note:
25 is the game default value equivalent to 1.5 seconds / sim minute
1000 is the maximum value which is equivalent to real world minute or 60 seconds / sim minute
I recommend 50 as it doubles your sim day, it is more than enough.

As long as the value goes lower than 25 your game time speed goes much faster.

I'll give this a try, thanks! I always feel as though my Sims never have quite enough time to fit in what I want them to be doing.

So... I'm not sure I understand. Does this mean that all actions that the Sim engages in will take less time during his day? Or does this affect the speed-up options for the player? And if it's the former (actions take less time), then how does it affect the player when they use the various speed-up options?

any interactions such as painting, writing, etc that are linked to the passing of sim minutes will still take the same amount of sim minutes, all you'll be changing are things keyed to realtime and the animations, such as walking.

Yeah you're right about that, those interactions like painting, writing etc which is crafting or producing ingame new items are not supposed to be changed. Even in shower it will take the animation loop for the set sim minutes it has to be but filling the needs never changed it will fill your needs like bladder, hunger, hygiene unless its energy as it fills over time, but it is faster than that so it will leave your sim hanging doing the animation loop though your needs is filled so all you have to do is immediately cancel that interaction. This works for me so yeah. By the way I'm thinking to release XML tuning along with this mod regarding those animation loops, just give me some more time collecting all those interactions as I need to work for my family too. Thanks for your concern

The interactions lengthen a little, you lengthen your day, but it is logical way, this script is also taken on the mc center. I have it in my game and I would never want to play without it again. It's a nice alternative to get your Sims to do a lot of things on a day. For example, a visit to the jungle, you can go to the temple, make visits, do a lot of things, you have a big day in front of you. They can do a profitable day of work and go to the museum after, the time allows it ... The speed does not act on the mobility of the Sims or others, it lengthens your day and the interactions will be shorter or longer , it's random ... I set 90, I tested a lot, it's the one that gives me more result, just find the one that suits you

When I use this mod my game time changes wildly upon loading a new game. My save is at 11:58 PM but when I load with this mod in my folder the game changes to 11:58 AM. If I save and exit and then return to the game my clock says something entirely different. This happens on every old or new save for me. I never used the MC version for this reason. Am I doing something wrong? The mod has slowed my game clock as intended.

It's kinda weird. I played the game for 3-5 sim days save and load the game, the time date and the calendar works perfectly. I even tried it with new and existing games, changing the value higher and lower then load the game, it absolutely works just fine it does not messing up my saved game. I also have over 10k of game mods, override mods, cas mods, build mods even buy mods. I did check for any possible errors but it throws nothing for me. I will look into it, please PM me your lastCrash.txt inside The Sims 4 folder where the save games located.

#10 Old 13th Jul 2018 at 2:25 PM
Thanks for your fast reply. Perhaps it's a problem of some kind unique to my setup. My last crash was about a year ago, and I had cleared all of the junk out of that folder on my last update. I don't have that .txt anymore. I will try and work this out on my own now that I know it's not a common issue. I think I will do a fresh install of my game and slowly introduce custom content. I have a few other weird things happening in my game. All the way back to the sims 1 this has fixed any craziness for me. If I work it out I will update you.

Hi! Do we have to get rid of the line of text after the # in line 9? Or do we just leave the file as is if we want it to stay at 50? Thank you, sorry for the questions!

Thanks for making this!

While I personally use deaderpool's MCCC in my own game (I like to micromanage my sim worlds), I know a few people for whom this could be a great alternative. I can see this being incredibly useful for players who want more control over their game but find a mod like MCCC a bit intimidating to use or more complex than what they want to do.

Strictly for use with the latest patch...does that mean the rest of us who don't yet want to update are screwed??
I struggle playing without the time mod. I'll be doing my regular thing and the day is already over having done one thing lol
So no support for patch 1.42.### whatever that one is?

Basically the script is built with seasons, the thing is cats and dogs and season has a different date and time calculations because of the calendar or so what ever. Regarding with the compatibility, I can say yes it has 100% no support for the previous versions. So the only thing I can do is I will release a version of this mod for that game version. I will release it later.

Edit: Version 0.9 is released that supports game version 1.36.XX to 1.43.14. Happy Playing!

Hi! I'm on 1.44.88 and this mod seems to not work for me. Could it be due to the fact that I have MC command center installed as well?

Hi I'm facing some weird behaviors with holidays and festivals, wich, even if is stated on the popup that will be from 6:00 AM to 2:00 AM on a certain calendar day, starts the day before at for example 4:00 PM.

Could it be due to the fact that I'm playing a saved game?

Anyone else have those strange behave of the game?

All I can say is that your problem is not a common issue. This mod is tested with 1.44.77 to 1.45.62 which is working fine, someone also is having trouble regarding this similarly which he is experiencing time change or time malfunction with his save games and new games. I recommend you to do a clean reinstallation of your game, this may due to the cache of the game which is totally broken.
