Staff update: Update here for PC Version / Mac Version

Minor Update (May 6) - There was a minor change to the XML. Appears to be a minor bugfix that they didn't even mention in the patch notes. I didn't bother updating the version number for the mod, it should be a drag and drop replacement if you choose to upgrade, which is probably a good idea if you have the May 4 game patch.

Updated for The Sims 4 version (March 26 Patch)

This mod was written by DrChillgood and I do not take any credit for doing anything more than updating it for the recent mod-breaking patch of March 26. No additional changes have been made or were required to the functionality of this mod. DrChillgood kindly gave permission for mod authors to update his mods, and I have chosen to update this mod so we may all continue to appreciate the fine work he did for the TS4 community.

THANKS DrChillgood!!!!

The original mod, for versions of the game not patched to version may be found here

Original Mod Description

You can't afford to feed your kid. Sim Social Services to the "rescue"! As part of the process, they completely obliterate your child, leaving nothing, not even a ghost.

I'm here to keep them at bay! You might not have been able to make dinner in time, but you can still keep in touch with his/her spirit.

Two versions - "Kids Can Starve" and "Kids Can Die Of Anything". This way, you can have more types of ghost children.

Technical info: I have disabled "Rescue Neglected Child" in the Hunger Motive (Statistic Instance 4110) and enabled the Hunger Death (Interaction Instance 33F3) for children. Kids Can Die Of Anything enables the Embarrassment (7E3A), Cowplant (33F2), Laughter (2451), Anger (2424), and Electrocution (21CA) Death interactions.

I recommend using this with "Flunking Kids Don't Get Taken Away", to remove one more way the Sim Deletion Service deletes kids.

My "No Emotional Deaths" should not cause a game-breaking conflict. This mod enables the emotional death interactions for children, while No Emotional Deaths will prevent the Emotion Failure Idle interaction that calls the emotional deaths themselves from being called.

Some people say: more realistic gameplay. I say: I can now play an evil witch who feeds children to her cowplant so that she can steal their youth and live forever... Thanks! :D

I believe this mod has become broken after yesterday's patch. After removing several of my mods with no change, I removed this one and no longer had any problems. Such problems were interactions between sims or objects just wouldn't happen or wouldn't register.

quafflerose31 is right. This mod is broken now. Interactions with objects mess up completely. Sims "using" objects while standing in place where they currently are, kids not being able to do anything other than "Move Here".

EDIT: Apparently it's this mod, as well as (Tanja1986's no autonomous Computer).

The Sims 4! Weirder Sims! Aren't they weird!? Look how weird they are! Bet you can't wait to see how weird their stories are!?

I re-created this mod awhile back found: give that a try and see if you have any issues the coding with the resources used got changed in this last patch making most mods incompatible.

Is there one to allow teens to die of anything/emotinal deaths? Since the Parenthood patch EA removed it.
