Lumpinou's LGBTQIA+: gender & orientation overhaul: identities & transitions / transgender gameplay, romantic & woohoo orientations, optional auto-assign, self-discovery, and more!
********************************************************************
AUGUST 17: V2.3 UPDATE

If updating to v2.3, DELETE or MANUALLY EDIT your LGBTQIA_GlobalSettings file or the mod will BREAK. Of course your Sims' assignments will remain unchanged!
I tried to make it update automatically but still running into issues with that.
Deleting the setting file = removing it from your mods folder to let another be created instead.
Manually updating the settings = opening it in a text editor and inserting two given lines in between two other lines following my illustrated instructions here.

v2.3 Adds one more setting to the auto-assign systems, and changes the way players who want to assign gender identity to child sims can do so.

*********************************************************************
FEATURE LIST:


Gender Identity, Gender Affirmation & Transition,
Split Orientations (In-Depth!),
Impact on Romance / WooHoo acceptance (optional),
Auto-Assign (optional & customizable),
Self-Discovery, (optional)
Extra aspects,
Coming Out (optional),
Queerplatonic relationships,

& More! + many more features in development & planned! : D

SUMMARIZED DESCRIPTION
_______________________
This mod is HIGHLY CUSTOMIZABLE. See something you don’t like? Chances are, it can be turned off or fine-tuned. Check the “Settings” Section in doubt!
There are Moodlets, Social Interactions, Notifications, Sentiments, etc, everywhere in this mod, so I didn't list them here!

***

GENDER Identities & Affirmation:


Free your Sims from the binary – their ‘CAS body gender’ doesn’t have to completely define who they are. You can assign them more precise gender identities if you so wish.
  • Questioning, Cisgender, Agender, Non-Binary, Genderfluid and Transgender are the options in this mod.
    / /
  • Gender Affirmation: a variety of non-medical and medical gameplay options for sims to transition or take gender-affirming steps. You can forget about CAS and actually do gameplay storytelling, accompanying your Sim along the way to their more expressed self - through interactions, moodlets, notifications, socials, relationship statuses and sentiments.
    All via gameplay, Sims can decide to change their name, pronouns, walkstyle, clothing preference, wear binders / breastforms, get hormone replacement therapy, top surgery, bottom surgery, speech training, etc - and tell others about it, or even post on Social Bunny!





Have CONTROL over how Orientation & Identity Impacts your game:
  • Want your non-cis Sims to NOT be misgendered and wrongly rejected based on their body? This mod’s got you covered!
  • Have a story with an individual Sim who are in the closet and don’t outwardly act truthfully to who they are until they are ready to be out? Can do that with this mod too.
  • Want all Sims to once more be completely pan? You can do that by either using the auto assign features, or leaving all Sims with no assignments, or using settings to make all Sims act pan no matter what (making all labels cosmetic-only - if you choose to add labels at all).



Bring NUANCE to your Sims and stories: Orientation, Extras, QPR

With a variety of (optionally) gameplay-impacting possibilities, you can make your Sims feel more diverse and real.
  • Here’s some examples of the representation you can make. Want to play the story of a nonbinary aromantic demisexual Sim? a cis mlm sim who is still keeping up appearances in a straight relationship and getting closer to telling them the truth? a touch-averse Sim? What about, a pan/demiromantic WooHoo-Favorable asexual Sim? A heteroromantic grey/pansexual Sim? A Trans Sim doing HRT? Representing all these experiences, and more, is possible with this mod.
  • ROMANTIC & SEXUAL orientations are completely separate and do not have to match at all.
    • They ALL have (optional) gameplay impact (ie if ‘gameplay impact’ setting is on.)
    • Sims can be, for romantic and sexual attraction, any mix of the following:
      • allo, grey, demi, a- ; and: attracted to masc, attracted to fem., bi, pan
        • Note: By default, the system looks at Identity not body (it’s a setting). NB, genderfluid, agender are included in all orientations by default (same setting).
      • ace / aro can be woohoo / romance -favorable, -indifferent or -averse


  • EXTRA ASPECTS help you represent an extra layer of realities.
    • Various type of touch-dislikes for kissing-averse or touching-averse (or both).
    • Sims can hide their identity or orientation w/ the “Pretending” aspects.
    • Sims can add extra cosmetic labels such as ‘intersex’, ‘queer’, ‘gay’, ‘lesbian’.
    • Sims can chose to be Always Faithful & reject sims except their partner.
    • 'Experiences Dysphoria' extra aspect
    • And more!


  • QUEERPLATONIC Relationships & Romance-Free WooHoo:
    • Sims can be Queerplatonic partners!
    • Aromantic Sims & Sims with matched sexual orientations but not-matched
      romantic orientations can woohoo without romance. Other Sims can, too, if you turn that setting on.



(Optional) AUTO-POPULATE your world with DIVERSE Sims:
  • Highly customizable auto-assign systems will allow you to have a world where Sims will appear in the game with varied gender identities and pronouns, orientations, and various other aspects.



(Optional) Have your Sims FIND THEMSELVES:
  • Systems for sims to discover their orientation, such as ‘Unexpected Crushes‘ (Sims discovering orientation through gameplay), "Orientation Type Discovery" (sims discover through gameplay that they're not allo), makes them live the feels of figuring out that maybe your orientation isn’t what you thought.
  • Sims can also discover their gender identity through similar systems.



(Optional) Have your Sims COME OUT!:
  • The ‘coming out’ progression walks sims from being in the closet to coming out to family and coming out publicly.
  • Sims don’t have to come out. In the next version of the mod, you will also be able to entirely hide coming-out interaction and ‘out status’ prompts.


Accepting World [DEFAULT] or (Optional) Introduce some Negativity
  • Stick to only positivity in an accepting world (default)
  • Or, for those who want, allow negative reactions and answers



DATING App & LOT Trait: meet & mingle



  • The Meet&Mingle! Dating App: have your Sim go on semi-blind dates with Sims auto-matched to be compatible, so Sims of any orientations and identities can meet potential partners easily.

  • Lgbtqia+ lot Trait: for your non-alloCisHet Sims to hang out with other LGBTQIA+ Sims and allies.Can be applied to various lot types! If this lot trait is applied to a bar, enjoy Special Nights with different crowds.

COMPATIBILITY
Base game compatible.

If you choose to make orientation assignments to your sims and are using this mod, it is strongly recommended to NOT do assignments for orientation in CAS, but to do it all through this mod instead - because the mod has more options that CAS can't handle at all! (it will also adjust the cas stuff, and vice versa). The mod has a convenient all-in-one system for assignments so it's fast and easy to make them.


For mod compatibility, see below.

[b]Compatibility notes for Wonderful / Wicked Whims by Turbodriver


WW and WonW will take into account my mod’s orientations in determining results for WW and WonW’s sexual attraction system. HOWEVER, WW and
WonW see ONLY the CAS gender of Sims. So, it will not look at gender identities.[/list]
McWooHoo:
McWooHoo’s “No string woohoo” breaks the impact of this mod for woohoo. It must be turned off to use this mod. Note that my setting ‘Show WooHoo for Non-Romantic relationships’ should do essentially the same thing.

More to come!
