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


scope
Naming your car is one thing - my first car was an Escort Mk.3 and the name I gave it roughly translates to "racing biscuit barrel" - having an actual relationship to your car is just sick. If you're one of these sickos who want to bang their rides, read no further and get your head examined.

usage
There is no ingame interface and no notifications will be shown for this mod. You will only notice that your sims don't form relationships to their cars. Because of that, there's no screenshot. I couldn't think of a way to illustrate something like that.

This mod will alter the threshold, boost and decay values for vehicle relationships, so it should be impossible for a regular sim to ever gain a relationship with a vehicle. Additionally, all existing vehicle relationships and vehicle usage dictionaries will be purged on startup.

By default, this will only be applied to sims who don't have the vehicle enthusiast trait. If you don't want vehicle enthusiasts to form relationships to vehicles either, you can do that by opening the package in S3PE and change the XML resource. Change the value of kAllowCarRelationshipsForEnthusiasts to False.

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

possible conflicts
This is a scripting mod and as such the possibility for conflicts with other mods, no matter what kind, is next to non-existant. I can't think of any kind of mod which could possibly interfere with this mod. This mod will override any changes made by tuning mods which alter the related values in the CarRelationship and Vehicle tuning files of the game. But even then, it won't conflict.

installation
Please follow the regular installation routine for packages. You will find an excellent wiki article if you click on the Installation Instructions tab and follow the link. I can't explain it any better than that.

deinstallation
Just rip it out whenever you like.

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

This rant is crazy, there are so many things wrong with it. Do you even know any Americans at all? There's a difference between liking a car-centered society and liking your own car. They are not the same thing. You also don't understand the difference between one sick individual who had such severe problems that he ended up being shown on TV, and the population as a whole. *Some* people get attached to their cars in the same way they get attached to other things, like a computer or a teddy bear or whatever. Some people take a little pride in their car looking nice. They might spend a lot of time in their car because they don't have reasonable alternatives. It's probably the most expensive thing they own, and something they had to put a lot of time and effort into acquiring (like researching its safety with consumer reports), and it has to be maintained, so they are invested in it. This isn't unique to Americans at all. It seems to me that you have some sort of bigotry issue here with people who like things you don't. You should consider that other people do have their own reasons for liking the things they like, and your opinion on the matter is ignorant and irrelevant.

I honestly don't know why I even bothered to respond. Buzzler, thanks for this awesome mod. It's one thing to like your car, but an actual relationship like it's a real friend is just EA stupidity.

Does this with with current patch 1:55?
Even if it does work, it'll need updateding for the boats. I don't want my sim to form releationships with boats.
Lab Assistant
#83 Old 27th Jun 2013 at 1:39 PM
I hope that this will be updated to include boats as well. I kind of wish EA would quit doing things like that.
At any rate it is nice to see Buzzler is back and I hope things are ok for him and that he will soon be able to have time to update mods to Patch 1.55!

Thanks in advance Buzzler!

Since this is a scripting mod, it should still work with 1.67

Thanks, personally I think the new car smell moodlet was enough. They could have added relationships to everything; computers, houses.
