This mod is Base Game compatible and has been tested with 1.77.131

This mod forces the game to suppress the lot music sting that plays when you initially load into a save, and also when you travel. Instead, you'll hear whichever audio was queued up next. Usually that will be the active sim's emotion sting, or if you have Eco Lifestyle, the Green/Industrial bumper.


Compatibility

This is a pure script mod that overrides the should_suppress_lot_audio_sting function of the NarrativeService. I highly doubt EA will ever modify this function so there shouldn't be any issues in future patches.


Installation

Place the .ts4script in the root of your Mods folder within Documents/Electronic Arts/The Sims 4.

Thank You!!!
You have no idea how happy I am right now. I used to have the old version of this but it crashes with the new patch so I deleted it. Thank you so much for updating it!

Thank you so much !! I really don't like this audio sting when I load a save. It's so loud...

Thank you, I absolutely loathe that 'sting' and have been getting around it by turning the audio effects slider down to 1% so that it's hardly audible, but then so is everything else so that's not exactly ideal! Why the devs even thought something so irritating was a clever idea, is a mystery.
