2014-03-15 - Compatible with game version 1.67. No changes.

Supported for game version 1.67. Should work with game versions from 1.31 upwards, though.

This mod replaces the excavate interaction with a custom interaction. Said custom interaction traps errors that may occur when treasure is added to sims' inventory. If such an error occurs, the affected sim should still get the treasure without being reset. The sim's journal won't be updated, though.

This mod fixes the excavate route fail tantrum by replacing the original excavate interaction with a custom interaction. The custom interaction uses the routing algorithm from on-lot excavation sites for off-lot excavation sites too. That worked flawlessly during my tests.

Just put it in your mods folder. This mod will snap right in, and you won't notice any differences except that the excavate interaction should work now. There are no testing or debugging interactions this time. Well, actually there are, but they're deactivated and the switch is hardcoded.

Not needed as I only used the original localized strings.

possible conflicts
Other non-core mods that replace the excavate interaction will tangle with this mod, i.e. whichever mod replaces the interaction last will be functional. This will never cause any issues beyond non-functionality.

Before you remove this mod, please make sure that no sim is currently using the excavate interaction.

Might lead to a serious case of squished brain. Your game should be safe, though.
