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As the outdated version by werismyki no longer works for newer patches, I've actually edited it for my own use and then I saw the thread keep getting bumped by questions on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.

You're all welcome!

I used the supercheaty one myself to answer threads and other testing and when I needed to start over a new game, again! And the .6x version for my normal gameplay because I'm impatient after repeatedly playing the same LTW.

All the different flavors are working as intended, then? I didn't mix anything up or missed editing one value or anything like that?
After a while, all those numbers kind of "run" together.

I didn't see the .005x mod in the zipfile. Otherwise a great mod. thanks.

Aha! Thanks for noticing!
Yes, forgot about re-naming, re-adding, and re-uploading the 7z file when I was asked to rename the row Headers.

If you had downloaded, it was actually misnamed as .01x, just rename that flavor to 0.005x, if you want.

7z corrected and reuploaded.

Yep, it's the .1x thing. Wasn't knocking your great work though!

I do appreciate the notification. Because if one asks, there's sure to be more. So if we can get that cleared up right up front, it is good for everyone. Less confusions for everyone and less of me answering the same questions repeatedly.

Is this compatible with 1.39?

This is a great mod, thank you. Does it work with patch 1.36? I have all games up to Diesel stuff. My graphics card can't handle supernatural, sadly. I wish I could use this mod though regardless.

@ohfelicia_marie0110 & @Zaneehlion,
yes, this is still compatible with 1.39 with no updates required as the 1.39 patch did not touch the GameplayData.package file at all. See Patch 1.39's Actual_changes, if you want to see what the 1.39 patch did update.

@CharmedLara,
the HiddenVampireTrait is categorized under "EP3" in 1.36, but as "BaseGame" in 1.38 (onwards). What this means is that if you have Late Night, your game may be a tad messed up. How, I have no idea, as I've not tested this scenario.

Patch 1.38 added 16 new "EP7" LTRs and 1 new "BaseGame" LTR.
If you don't have the EP(s), I guess it may just be ignored (as would the new 1.38/SN LTRs), but don't quote me on that.

If you're willing to test it for me, be sure to update us on how it went. backup your Sims 3 user folders first! So if it get messed up, you can just chuck out this mod and the newly copied Sims 3 folder and revert back to the backup by renaming it.

I tried one of the packages without hidden skills and it isn't working. (.005x) I am so bummed.

I have 1.39 and supernatural installed. Creating a new sim and all lifetime goals are blank. sigh

Thanks for letting me know.
I never tested with any hidden or faster or any other skills mod, for that matter. Theoretically, they shouldn't conflict as they are different XMLs, but they are inter-connected. So that may be why.

Compatibility section updated.

It is odd... the .4x worked for me, but the .005x did not. No idea what would cause that. I'm going to test the .2x to see if that one works.

Mods rock my sox.
