~This mod is compatible with patch 1.42 ~

I made this mod because my Horsewoman sim managed to raise a horse that mastered it's jumping and racing skills and she had her riding skill mastered as well. The horse had even completed all the challenges for each of those skills. However when I took them to the international races after completing many advance and beginner races my horse could place as high as 3rd place. I even had my unicorn bless my sim and her horse and still they got no further then 3rd place. I decided to check the forum boards to see if anyone else had managed to get first place and I found I wasn't alone. So this is how the mod came into existence to help fix the issue people were having.

What This Mod Does

This mod makes it easier for you and your horse to actually place higher when doing the international races for cross country, jumping, and racing. This means you know have a chance of getting 1st place when doing the race. With the other versions of this mod I have included increase payment for when you place high enough in the ranks.

Changes in all versions:

All versions have the same fix to the international race scores for how they place in the race. All race ranks in the international race were changed to make it easier to place.


International Cross Country 1st Place Score:
Original - 515
New - 430

International Jumping 1st Place Score:
Original - 510
New - 430

International Running 1st Place Score:
Original - 510
New - 430

Differences in the Prize Money:

Package without a multiplier at the end uses the original prize money earnings.

This is not compatible with any mod that alters "EquestrianCenter" xml. Choose only one flavor of this mod.

  • Added three new versions (3/11/2012)

It's an XML tuning file so, yes.

I really haven't played with horses yet but I may be back in the future to download this. Thanks.

It is even posible to get first place with a unmoded game?

Do not install pescado's mod. It is the one producing the errors it warns you about. Get Twallan's instead. It cleans your save file and prevents glitches.

Glad everyone is enjoying this.

@Rafe I've tried entering 10 different international races with the horse mentioned in my post and it always got 3rd place. It had full motive bars and the same goes for my sim. Never managed to get higher then that personally.

It is pretty easy, actually, if the horse is wearing the right saddle. With the default one it is almost impossible to win.

P.S.: Sorry for my English .

It's the same for me. I have the the same request. Only more money.

Well since my finals are over I'll see about making a version of this mod with just the money changes.
#9 Old 26th Jan 2012 at 8:37 AM
Good luck on your finals & thank you so much for this mod! Good to see it's compatible with the new update but I do wonder, did you update the mod or was it already compatible? I wasn't sure so I did re-download it but I find, aside from the modified time being one hour different, the date is exactly the same as the one I already had (10/29/2011, 4:05am & 5:05am respectively).

Thanks again!

Sorry the long delay on the new version but they are finally up. Enjoy everyone

Edit: As for the reason they're named Moonseeker23 is because it's the other username I go by mostly.

The file is compatible with 1.36

Is this mod compatible w/patch level 1.38? It seems as though all older mods make the game crash now. Patch 1.38 just came out a couple of days ago.

Is this compatible with 1.38?

Wow, it's beautiful outside. I should probably do something....

Like close the blinds on my window so there isn't a glare on my computer screen.
