Ever been sick of rummaging through bins only to find one item? Your slob sims having a hard time finding something to be happy about? I've got you covered with Always a Good Rummage. This mod allows for sims who enjoy rummaging through garbage to collect ore items that are mostly only available through catching frogs etc. This mod makes it easier by giving you FIVE items per rummage, not only that, but its A 100% CHANCE of getting these items so your slob sims can always be happy. The default value is a 20% of obtaining 1 item.
Version 2 has a 40% chance of getting one item and a 60% chance of getting nothing (basically just better odds)

I am happy to make future versions of this mod to tone down the probability that you'll get items, or even the amount of items received. I think the max is like 50 or something
Thank you all.

To be honest I'd be happy with a 40% chance of one item per rummage (plus perhaps a 1% chance of a second, just for some double yolk-type excitement). In my opinion all rummaging needs is for the chance to find something being increased just enough to remove the frustration of searching 9 or 10 bins (or the same bin 9 or 10 times) and finding nothing. I'm really happy to see somebody trying to improve rummaging.

Thank you so much for the constructive feedback! I'll see what I can do and upload another flavour of this to suit other people.

Sorry for my late reply, I just saw that you replied. I found some one who has updated a mod that was out of date of like 2 years now.
