I'm really interested in this aspiration, but like the commenter above, I'm wondering if it's been updated to work with big patch that came with Get Famous?

Hello! How did you make the screen slam work in V2 of Mod Constructor? (This aspiration is so cool by the way!)

Well I'm assuming since no one has come back saying it doesn't work that even without being updated recently it might still work. If it doesn't I will edit this for others to see just in case!

Love this aspiration, but the new patch broke it, now it fulfills on it's own even if my sim doesn't choose it.

I will try to look into it when I get the chance, but I'm not a very good modder (I used a tool to make the aspiration) and have been super busy lately. But hopefully I can look into it this week.

Default Thank you
I really enjoyed my playthrough with this aspiration (before the last few patched) and I'd sure love to use it again, if you ever get the chance to update it. Until then: just thank you

Just a note to the modder: If you created it using Zerbu's Mod Constructor, you can easily update it. Just download the new version of Constructor (still called version 4; no changes except Snowy Escape compatibility added), install it over the old version, have it load your aspiration, and then re-export it. That should fix the issues.

This is a great aspiration, but the reward trait is what breaks it with the new patch. Re-exporting it with Mod Constructor fixes the reward trait.

If this could be done, that would be AWESOME!

It can, but it can only be done by the modder. Only the modder has the original files that can be updated.

Hi! if i'm not mistaken, other modders are able to update other's mods as long as it's posted in the same location with respective notice... i saw that happen on another thread but i wasn't sure if that's because the creator hasn't been online in a while or if there was some kind of agreement with MTS. "I went ahead and looked into this one to see what can be done and fixed what I think is the problem. Uploaded here is the fixed version until the original creator returns to resume updating the mods he uploaded here." is what was said.... :D

also, can you not use the file that you downloaded to fix? are there only the original files that can be updated? (i'm not a modder, thats why all the questions) thanks for your response!
