Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
What?
As the outdated version by werismyki no longer works for newer patches, I've actually edited it for my own use and then I saw the thread keep getting bumped by questions on whether it is going to be updated. Well it is now.

This tuning mod makes the Lifetime Reward prices cheaper or more expensive, depending on your needs. Refer to tables for the new values. Choose the column and the corresponding flavor of the .package file from the 7z. Each flavor contains tweaks for both Sims and Pets. You can choose only ONE flavor! And it applies for all Sims and Pets as the original would.

Table for Sims, and the new Supernaturals introduced in EP07: Supernatural.

Where?
  • It goes in the usual /Mods/Packages folder like any other .package CC. Would also work in the /Overrides folder.
  • Just make sure the game is patched to 1.38 current patch as shown in the last row of Game Help:Patch_Tablewiki.
  • Choose only one flavor!

Any patch that coincides with an Expansion pack release that has new Traits & LifetimeRewards would make this mod incompatible with that new patch version. Use the incompatible older version (if you have patched to a new game version) at your own risk. And before you ask,
  1. yes, I will update
  2. when? Would most likely complete any updates needed and the testing I do for it during the week of the pack release and thus only release the updated version on the weekend after an EP release (best case scenario). If I get the EP immediately, that is. Else, any purchase delays would delay the updates as appropriate.

    • Reported to conflict with hidden skills (post#22)/ hidden traits (post#68) mods.
  • Still compatible with Patch 1.39
    • no updates required as the patch did not make any changes to the GameplayData.package this time.
  • This mod is made with patch 1.38 installed. I have tested that the new Traits in Supernatural does appear in CAS.
  • This mod changes values in the Traits xml resource in the \Game\Bin\Gameplay\GameplayData.package file. It would conflict with any other mod that make changes to this same resource (0333406C_00000000_905E2204EBCAC0B6_Traits)

No where near the same thing. That is a cheat that makes them all cost 5 points. Why not just cheat to increase your points instead? That is completely pointless.

This keeps the rewards balanced in value according to how EA wanted them, but allows you to purchase them more easily, or requires you to save up longer, depending on personal preference. This lets you scale your reward cost to match an Epic lifespan, or a really short one.

I'm glad that by the time I figured out this was the mod that was preventing interactions with sims that this has been updated... there were other mods that prevented the game from even starting but this one would let the game start but clicking on any sim wouldn't do anything, I could click the ground and walk I could click on the Dragon (Named my Black Dragon Deathscythe after the Gundam of the same name) and interact but pets and siims were a no go... Hope this fixes that...

My Sims3 doesn't have an Override folder or a mods folder? Do I have to make one? If so, where?

Any help I get would be awesome.
Thanks!

I love this and as a new mom (we have a son who is nearly one month old now) I don't have a lot of free time so being able to speed things up a bit is a big plus for me right now. Thanks so much for taking the time to update this, I really appreciate it.
