New Tutorial: Create A New Skillspan

Why just now?
A lot of people still ask me to create a new lifespan, universityspan, skillspan,.. to their liking. First I just didn't upload the spans anymore as it's hard to name them to keep them apart. But I still created the spans people asked me to do, I just didn't upload them anymore.
But as there are so many possibilities and so many people with different likings on this, I decided to write a tutorial about it so everyone can experiment to their own joy.
There are 7 tutorials. One for every span possible.

  1. New Tutorial: Create A New Pets Pregnancyspan
  2. New Tutorial: Create A New Pregnancyspan
  3. New Tutorial: Create A New Seasonspan
  4. New Tutorial: Create A New Universityspan
  5. New Tutorial: Create A New Lifespan
  6. New Tutorial: Create A New Skillspan
  7. New Tutorial: Create A New Petslifespan

So let's get started
First of all you need SimPE. The correct version can be found here:
You don't need a basic SimPE skill as this is very very simple to do.

Skillspan
This creation will make it possible for you sims to take longer to earn one skillpoint.

Tutorial
First download this template:

When you open this mod, you'll see just two lines you can change in the Resource Tree:


  • Press the Behaviour Constant (BCON) in the Resource Tree (on the left)
  • Then in Plugin View you can see several lines.
    • In both lines you see values above 0. Only change those.
    • The values that you see now are the defaults (1h) multiplied by 5 (5h-6h mod).
    • So you can go to View original to find out which value to multiply by how many hours you want it to take to earn 1 skillpoint.
    • Or you can multiply the value you see (from the 5h mod) by e.g. 2 to have a 10h skillmod.
  • On the left you see Hex (for hexadecimal numbers) and Dec (for decimal numbers)
    • Just change the value (in hours) there and press the button Commit File (on the right)
That's it! Don't forget to save your package while giving it a new filename and test it out in game.
If you have any questions about this tutorial, don't hesitate to ask!

New Tutorial: Create A New Lifespan

Why just now?
A lot of people still ask me to create a new lifespan, universityspan, skillspan,.. to their liking. First I just didn't upload the spans anymore as it's hard to name them to keep them apart. But I still created the spans people asked me to do, I just didn't upload them anymore.

  6. New Tutorial: Create A New Skillspan
  7. New Tutorial: Create A New Petslifespan

So let's get started
First of all you need SimPE. The correct version can be found here: http://sims.ambertation.de/en/
You don't need a basic SimPE skill as this is very very simple to do.
But you need a bit of logic, though.

Lifespan
A long time ago, I knew how to change the lifespan of elders, but I don't know now anymore (it's been ages since I created those lifespans). There are labels in the packagefile to explain it a bit, though.

Tutorial
First download this template:

When you open this mod, you'll see just two things you can change:


  • Press the Behaviour Constant (BCON) in the Resource Tree (on the left)
    • Go to Tuning
  • Then in Plugin View you can see several lines, but they all have a clear and correct label.
    • Just keep in mind that you have to input the decimal value (the ageduration you want) minus 1.
    • In the screenshot all the numbers you see in the column Value (in hexadecimal numbers, though) are the default ones.
      • So babies have an ageduration of 3 days while you see 2 in the screenshot.
  • On the left you see Hex (for hexadecimal numbers) and Dec (for decimal numbers)
    • Just change the value there and press the button Commit File (on the right)
    • You can always press View original to see the default values.
  • I don't know why you hav to input the ageduration for each agegroup (babies, toddlers,...) twice. I haven't tested what happens if you input another value for the same agegroup.

Elders
  • The elders are a special agegroup because of the aspiration.
  • As I mentioned before, I don't remember how to change that and what's the logic behind every value. It's been too long since I calculated that.
    • But what I can do is give you a screenshot of SimPE for my agemod of the project realistic ages 1 month and then you can compare it with the ages the elders can become with each aspiration (Sorry about the labels. You can see them in the screenshot above).
    • The value you see is in hexadecimal. This might help too: http://www.binaryhexconverter.com/hex-to-decimal-converter


Baby: Ages 0 – 1 (12*(1-0))=12 Days
Toddlers: Ages 1 – 6 (12*(6-1))=60 Days
Children: Ages 6 – 13 (12*(13-6))=84 Days
Teens: Ages 13 – 19 (12*(19-13))=72 Days
Adults: Ages 19 – 65 (12*(65-19))=552 Days
Elder: Ages +65
Total of baby to adult: 780 days/12 = 65 years
Elder ("Between": the game choses this randomly):
Platinum aspiration: Between 95,42 and 87,92 years old
Gold aspiration: Between 86,67 and 79,17 years old
Green aspiration: Between 79,17 and 71,67 years old
No aspiration: Between 78,33 and 70,83 years old
Red aspiration: Between 65,83 and 73,33 years old


That's it! Don't forget to save your package while giving it a new filename and test it out in game.

New Project: Realistic Ages 1 Sims Day = 1 Real Day

This is a project that I really like. I made it long ago, but now I think it's perfect enough to upload here.
I understand that there will be people who would like to see different spans for the different ages as I made.
Feel free to request a different span: http://bit.ly/p9ymWC
Or take a look at the different tutorials on my blog to create these mods yourself: Label: Tutorial - All



Screenshot:


Download:

This is the complete project (pet pregnancy included). Be sure to delete the mods of the EP's you do not have!

Ages Sims (no EP's needed):
Baby: Ages 0 – 1: 365 Days
Toddlers: Ages 1 – 6: 1825 Days
Children: Ages 6 – 13: 2555 Days
Teens: Ages 13 – 19: 2190 Days
Adults: Ages 19 – 65: 16790 Days
Elder: Ages +65
Total of baby to adult: 23725 days/365 = 65 years
Elder ("Between": the game choses this randomly):
Platinum aspiration: Between 95,42 and 87,92 years old
Gold aspiration: Between 86,67 and 79,17 years old
Green aspiration: Between 79,17 and 71,67 years old
No aspiration: Between 78,33 and 70,83 years old
Red aspiration: Between 65,83 and 73,33 years old

Skills (no EP's needed):
150 to 180 hours to gain a skillpoint.
Very long, but your sims have really a lot of time.

University (UNI needed):
Within this project that's 4380 hours per semester.

Pregnancy (OFB needed):
Maxis' pregnancy duration (24 hours in a day):
First trimester (impregnation to first morth): 25 hours (1 day and 1 hour)
Second trimester (first morth to second morth): 25 hours (1 day and 1 hour)
Third trimester (second morth to birth: 25 hours (1 day and 1 hour)

Project Realistic Ages (1simsday=1realday) pregnancy duration (24 hours in a day):
First trimester (impregnation to first morth): 504 hours
Second trimester (first morth to second morth): 5544 hours
Third trimester (second morth to birth: 672 hours

This is because then your sims will have morning sickness for 504 hours (I think that's long enough).
I like my pregnant sims to show their pregnant belly, but they still can go to work (although the game doesn't agree). Just send them to work on foot or by car as the carpool won't come anymore.
The third stage is 672. That's also not very long compared to the second stage, but that's because I think it's already long enough for the sims to walk around with such a big belly.
I understand some player will think otherwise about this than me. But as I create for myself (or by request) and then share it, I feel it should be to my liking. If I'd made a different span for every player who has a different liking, I think I would have hundreds or thousands different spans.

Ages pets (Pets needed):
Kitten: 365 days (1 year)
Adult cat: 4745 days (about 13 years)
Puppy: 365 days (1 year)
Adult large dog: 3650 days (about 10 years)
Adult small dog: 4380 days (about 12 years)
Elder cat and dog: 1095 days (3 years)

Pets pregnancy
Real life pregnancy duration
A cat's pregnancy in real life takes about 62-67 days.
A dog's pregnancy in real life takes about 58-65 days.
As I can't seperate the length of cat's and dog's pregnancy in the game, I took the shortest and longest length 58-67 days.

Maxis' pet pregnancy duration (24 hours in a day):
Minimum: 48 hours
Maximum: 60 hours

Project Realistic Ages (1simsday=1realmonth) pet pregnancy duration (24 hours in a day):
Minimum: 1392 hours

Maximum: 1608 hours

Seasons (Seasons needed):
Every season lasts 91 days as there are 30+31+30 days in 1 season.
It's actually different every season but as 365/4 equals 91.25, 91 days is about right.
