Newborns Get Zodiac Signs that Match the Current Season

Based on the days elapsed of the current season, this mod will calculate the zodiac sign a newborn should get. Additionally, twins and triplets will get the same zodiac sign.

There are two versions of this mod. Download only one.

Northern Hemisphere:
SeasonZodiac
SummerCancer / Leo / Virgo
FallLibra / Scorpio / Sagittarius
WinterCapricorn / Aquarius / Pisces
SpringAries / Taurus / Gemini
Southern Hemisphere:
SeasonZodiac
SummerCapricorn / Aquarius / Pisces
FallAries / Taurus / Gemini
WinterCancer / Leo / Virgo
SpringLibra / Scorpio / Sagittarius

Changelog:
2012.12.5: Release.
2012.12.10: Added Southern Hemisphere version.
2013.1.13: Fixed conflict with Twallan's Woohooer.
2013.7.28: Harvested PlantSim babies now get zodiac sign that match the current season.

Notes:
This is a scripting mod inspired by Cherry92's Same Zodiac for Twins and Triplets mod.

This mod was compiled against patch 1.55 and may not work with other patch versions; however, it works with the latest patch (1.57). It doesn't override pregnancy tuning files, so it is compatible with tuning and scripting mods. Seasons is not required, but if you don't have it there's no need to use this mod. Instead download Cherry92's mod.

Additional Credits:
I would like to thank Cherry92 for letting me upload this updated version mod of her mod!

Kudos to Twallan for suggesting an alternative to overcome the incompatibility with his mod.

I would say yes since this mod allows twins and triplets have the same zodiac.

@angiesupers They do conflict. But you won't need Cherry92's zodiac mod if you use this mod.

The only problem I have is simply that the signs Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo and Pisces fall in the wrong season (at least for the Northern Hemisphere). Isn't the Southern Hemisphere really just the opposite of the Northern? I'm a Scorpio, so I don't mind Scorpio in fall. But the problem arises when I see Virgo in Autumn. Well I know a few people who are born in August and are Virgos... isn't August a Summer month? Last I checked so was September (only does it turn to Autumn on the 23rd day, the same day Libra starts).

It's appreciative what was done, nonetheless.

Thank you very much for the mod! I can't wait to use it to make sense of the starsigns!

As for the raging debate above the dates for the mod. I think the problem is that different countries disagree as to when the seasons start. So different countries use different sets of 3 months for each season. Euopeans and Americans probably just have different start dates.

Heck, according to Wikipedia, the country I am currently living in can't agree as to when summer starts for itself! So it makes sense that it differs from country to country.

Quote:
In Ireland, the summer months according to the national meteorological service, Met Éireann, are June, July and August. However, according to the Irish Calendar summer begins 1 May and ends 1 August. School textbooks in Ireland follow the cultural norm of summer commencing on 1 May rather than the meteorological definition of 1 June.

From Wikipedia's article on Summer .

Anyway, hopefully that helps people get why they are disagreeing. I for one am just happy to have something that stops the starsigns being random! I don't mind if Simworld has their seasons a little differently to how I see them.

The United States. I suppose it's true that some seasons vary by country due to the latitude and longitude of every country in relation to the North and South pole. I suppose it isn't so bad, but I was wondering... why not create at least four or so different variations of when the seasons signs start, and their counter-opposites for the Southern Hemisphere?

Possibly, it may be too much, but I thought it was a good idea.

@SniperBomber Well, I haven't seen anyone nagging about any other differences, but we know 3 countries having problem with the zodiacs' pattern, US, France and Iran. So we'll probably need 2 other favours for both hemispheres.

So, the same as Iran

I commented because I was born in winter and I'm Pisces, so it's bugging me you put it in spring, but this mod is great even though ^^


I agree that this is a really cool mod, but this is correct not just for Europe. These signs correlate with these seasons for the entire Northern hemisphere. If (the creator) would be willing to just fix that (because I have no idea how to do it myself) I would happily download this mod. - I too am a Pisces (Pisces high-five!) Winter babies all the way!

I appreciate this mod so much, like you wouldn't believe, but I can't use it. I've never seen it anywhere that Aries, Taurus, and Gemini are anything but Spring zodiac, and as a Sagittarius, I simply can't stand the idea of my Zodiac being nestled in Winter or Summer. I was born in the fall, on the first day of Sagittarius. Should you ever add another flavor of this mod, to begin Aries as the first Zodiac of Spring and the rest follow accordingly, I would be most happy to download. Now now, I'll settle to add this to my favorites and follow.

Awesome idea and awesome mod. You're amazing for having done this at all. I'm a Sagittarius. Dec. 8th. But I've always considered myself winter, rather than fall. The fact that star signs recognize "cusp" personalities makes this hard. I understand that some people want to be precise, but nitpicking when you've done something a lot of us have been waiting for (made the in game star signs mean anything at all, for instance), feels slightly... rude. Constructive criticism, sure. But don't pester if something is off by a few days.

That's why I hesitated to post, because my comment does feel rude. I don't honestly intend to be rude, I just prefer to be honest. I can live without the mod, certainly, and it is supremely awesome that it has been made by someone so talented. (I use a number of other mods by MX) I just know that if I were me, I'd rather people be honest with me. In hindsight, I may have been wrong to say anything, but I can't apologize for honesty.

EDIT: Just so I can make myself understood, my understanding of Zodiac-to-seasons comes from the idea that Aries is the first Zodiac, as so whichever season he is in, he begins that season and the rest of the Zodiac follow accordingly, with the final zodiac, Pisces, ending the final season. That's how I've always understood it and how it was taught to me, and as astrology has been kind of personally important to me for reasons that would further embarrass me today, I did get sort of defensive in my first post, and for that I would like to apologize to Sims MX.

I'm pretty sure that I suggested it aswell. I didn't put too much information into it, but I'm pretty sure Australia is in the southern hemisphere
