Last code update 2012/11/16

This mod allows the use of firearms that can you can aim and shoot, killing your least favourite Sims...
It uses the WA camera interface to aim, but instead of taking a picture, it can kill the Sim in the scope.
It supports long range rifles, so you can use the full zoom to snipe out distant targets.


Installation
The download includes:
  • Desecrate_WeaponsLib - Main script library for weapons objects, supporting a wide range of weapon types - requires base patch level 1.38 or above
  • Desecrate-XanKriegor_SniperRifle - Long Range Rifle object, cloned from Barrett M82 mesh by XanKriegor
  • Desecrate-XanKriegor_Pistol - Pistol object, cloned from Glock 17 mesh by XanKriegor
You need to install the WeaponsLib package plus the weapon object packages you would like to use.

In the game, you can find the objects in buy mode under Entertainment / Hobbies & Skills. The Riffle costs 1600, the Pistol 499.


Compatibility
Latest version requires base game patch level 1.38 or higher(tested till 1.47), and is compatible with base game and every expansion/stuff packs released to date.
It works with base game only, although there are some effects that are only available with WA, Ambitions, Pets and Supernatural.
If you have an old patch level, there are an older versions of this mod that work with base game version 1.8 and above. PM me with your current game version if you need an older version of this mod.


Features
This Mod contains the following features:
  • Carry Weapon - Makes the Sim carry the weapon, so that it's ready to Shoot.
  • Shoot - Allows you to aim and shoot a Sim. Depending on the weapon type used, you can have more or less zoom range.
  • Ammo Type - In some weapon types, you can switch between ammo types (e.g. switch from standard bullets, to rubber bullets or tranquilizer darts)
  • Killing Gallery - I decided to leave in the picture inventory from the camera object, in case you want to keep track of your kills.
  • Clear Gallery - Clears the kill gallery.
Each weapon has an associated damage, and depending on the precision of the shot and distance of the target, it will inflict more or less damage. The damage will be taken out of the Sim's energy (injuring him), or if the sim runs out of energy, he will die. Weapons can have piercing ability - a Long Range Rifle can kill up to 3 sims with one shot if you line them up right.
Some weapons can use "knock out ammo", like tranquilizer darts, which will put the Sim to sleep rather than killing him (although an overdose of tranquilizer might eventually be deadly).
Witnesses in the same room and near the shooter have a chance of calling the police, in which case you'll get arrested and loose your job (except if in a criminal career).
The shooter, witnesses and victims will get mood/buffs effects (like Horrified, CreepedOut, FiendishlyDelighted, etc) depending if they have evil or good alignment.
Vampires will only die with wooden ammo, mummies with fire weapons, simbots with electric weapons, werewolfs with silver bullets, etc.
Pets can also be "put to sleep"...
You can shoot some objects, producing several effects depending on the object type. If the Ambitions EP is installed, some objects might explode when shot with a powerful weapon or explosive ammo.
Currently shootable objects: All Repairable or Cleanable objects (will get broken or dirty), Lights, Insects, Toys, Fireworks, Boulders and Gravestones/Urns.

This can also be used with NRaas' Mobster career and Assassination skill, so you can have hitman jobs and assassination opportunities.



Update 2013/01/20
  • Verified compatibility with patch 1.47 (no changes needed).
  • Added Czech translation by Peccoskaify.
  • Added Polish translation by cejanek.


Uninstalling/Upgrading
Before removing or updating the mod, sell all weapons your sims might be carrying in inventory and save the game.


Extensibility
I have structured the object script code in a separate package file (WeaponsLib), so that if anyone would like to make additional weapon objects meshes, they would just need to set the object script field to one of the weapons available in the lib package, and it would automatically adopt the behaviour of the selected weapon.
To object Creators - The lib supports a few more weapon types, and it would be great if someone could make different weapon objects, like Shotguns, Dart guns, Tasers, Crossbows, RPGs, etc...

Hehehehhh... I just had a fun (i.e.-morbid) thought. You had mentioned wanting to add the feature found with Dexter the Bear in which the murdering sim could get arrested if there are witnesses. I think adding the possibility of the arrested sim dying in jail (i.e.-death penalty) would be great for those who might want the option. For example, getting arrested for murder could result in a 0%, 25%, 50%, ..etc chance of death while in jail. In the event of death, the tombstone appears in the mausoleum and the resulting ghost has the electrocution effect. This would be great as it creates a challenge to only kill with no witnesses but also adds consequences to superbad behavior in sim world.

Just a thought! I don't even know if this would be possible... Nonetheless, Looking forward to the updates on this. Oh, and I second a "no infant-children death" version. Taffy stretch perturbs me.

I had originally downloaded the Rifle and Pistol from XanKriegor but I had downloaded them as package files. I deleted them and reinstalled them from the download link you gave along with the Weapon System itself, but neither of the weapons are in my game. I tried the framework tool and it said that the framework is working fine. Can someone help?

To add to my original question about killing NPCs, would the game get corrupted if people shot the burglar or the grim reaper? Some folks mentioned wanting to do that, but I'm not sure if it's a good idea. Are there burglar/reaper objects/codes that would get stuck or messed up if that happened?

HeyBubbe's idea about witnesses rocks. Not trying to add to your plate, but if all you modders discussed this in the forums, who knows what great things would happen.

I hope someone takes the code you wrote and uses it with a sci-fi ray gun or steampunk weapon. Oh, the possibilities!

Awesome. For police, they should only get you if there are witnesses and you're on the same lot as the vitim. Like if you snipe them from two lots away you don't get in trouble, but if you shoot them point blank with the pistol, everyone knows you did it and get arrested.

Well I guess 8 people could all die in a fire. That's strange.

You have the place the weapons on a surface piece of furniture and not the ground. I couldn't pick up a weapon from off the floor.

Strange, you should be pickup the weapons from the ground or furniture, either by dragging the object to the inventory or using the "Put in inventory" interaction.
The issues described sound like framework issues. Make sure you have the framework/d3dx9_31.dll installed correctly.
It needs to be in the \Game\Bin folder of each of the expantions you have.

Also make sure your game version is updated, it should work with base versions 1.9 WA 2.4 and above. If your game version is too old, it probably wont work.

If the weapons don't show up in the game at all (they should be in under Entertainment/Hobbies&Skills), it's possibly another problem. Recheck that all the packages in this download are in your Mods\Packages folder (specialy the Desecrate_WeaponsLib.package), and make sure the framework is ok for all your expantion packs and that you have a recent game update.

Of course you can
It will fall, disapear and reapear to collect it's own soul.
However killing Death has it's downsides, as it will stop collecting souls, and after some time you'll have a city full of dead bodies lying arround... which although fun, can really mess up your gameplay.

As far as killing other NPCs (pizza boy, burgular, maids, etc), I didn't find much problems with these, and a diferent NPC would show up the next day.
But kill them at your own risk - I may give you the weapons, but I don't make you pull the trigger

Regarding baby killing, unfortunatly I've confirmed this is an issue where both a streached out version of the baby and the grim reaper can get stuck, and in the next version I'll prevent babys/toddlers from being killed with this mod.
If you ran into this situation and saved the game, it can be unblocked using the ResetSim cheat: press Ctrl+Shift+C in the game to open the cheat console, and then type "ResetSim [Sim Full Name]", for example "ResetSim Grim Reaper".

There is no way to make this without WA because aiming uses the system of the camera.

Ok I found my problem. Everything was working fine I just looked in the wrong place for the guns. Thanks, they work GREAT! On my first test I lured him in with a death and then killed the Grim Reaper but he just did the death animation of falling to the ground but rose back up and made a tombstone with his name on it and then he disappeared.

Congratulations, you have just turned Sims 3 into a first-person shooter, that thing i read about modding was half wrong. It said that with modding you can do alot, but you cant make the game into a first-person shooter where you kill zombies.

Thanks for answering all those wonderful questions! Things are working perfectly for me so far... truly fantastic work right here.

And I say you should keep the baby-option in, at least as an optional file; only because I find it hilarious and the stretching doesn't bother me at all. Like you said, you can fix it with the cheat if need be. Good luck with your future modding, and thanks again!

michellelouise If you read the text, you would see "In the game, you can find the objects in build mode under Entertainment / Hobbies & Skills." Also, you would know this requires WA because it uses the WA camera interface. Can't make a non-WA version unless there's a way to control the camera without WA. If you're going to ask a creator to make something for you, it is only polite to say please. Also, please use capitalization (see site rules).


desecrate

You may wish to mention in the main text that people shouldn't shoot the reaper. Some people don't know you can corrupt the game this way. Is there a way to make the reaper not targetable?

If you would like a Polish localization, there's a Polish people group here on MTS. I would volunteer to translate, but my Polish is only passable. If no one else volunteers, I can attempt the Polish translation.
