Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
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...

I bet you could use this and tweak it slightly to create a hunting mod. Shoot those damn deer that keep eating my vegetables and get some tasty beef from it.

Causes game to crash when I go to buy it in buy mode. Can't be a coincidence that I suddenly get crashes going to that section in buy mode right after adding this mod. Could be a conflict with another mod perhaps, I have NRaas mods, Dexter, KW, glass house, and some sliders and skins and stuff. v1.67

Just out of curiosity, are there any other Weapons that use the desacretes system, other than the Phaser, and the two guns included in the Download post.

Check out my Patreon, I feature Artwork and Short Stories and Bio's about my own Personal Multiverse, as well as some CC I'll share for early release (nothing major right now though, Mainly just recategorized Maxis Content).

this is a very old mod, and it made my Sims 3 go on a ram crash. I got the dreaded ''access violation'' crash after using it.
