No Sparkles when Genie Makes House Spotless

DESCRIPTION


This mod prevents the sparkling effect on the lot when your genie sim uses their ability "Make House Spotless and Sparkly".

Cleaning houses with this genie's interaction is nice, it can be used anywhere, e.g. neighbors' houses or community lots, so it's really useful.

But the sparkles all over the lot made my game slower and laggy for some annoying seconds, until the effect expired, each time I used it.

I couldn't find a mod to avoid it, but i found this wonderful tool from velocitygrass (link below) and made it.

And it worked, my game doesn't get laggy anymore when I use that interaction. If, just like me, you love playing with genie sims but don't want the sparkling, you'll enjoy this mod.

REQUIREMENTS


It requires the expansion pack Showtime. Genie life state and the interaction Make House Spotless and Sparkly come from this expansion.

INSTRUCTIONS


No special instructions required, install as usual.

Unless you've never installed a mod in TS3, in this case you need to prepare your mods folder, you can follow this guide: Game Help: Installing Sims 3 package files

COMPATIBILITY


Works fine with patch 1.67.2
It worked with earlier versions too.

It will conflict with mods that modifiy the sparkles from genies' spell on the lot. I haven't found any mod that alters these values so far, nor has it had any problem with my game or the other mods I use.

These are the effects disabled by this mod:

ep6geniespellenchanthouse_main
ep6geniespellenchanthousel_main
ep6geniespellenchanthouser_main
ep6genielotsparks0
ep6genielotsparks1
ep6genielotsparks2
ep6genielotsparks3
ep6genielotsparks_main

The modification is in _SWB resource (TGI: 0xEA5118B0-0x0051185B-0xAE1859FADE0A9056) from DeltaBuild0.package
