Staff note: An updated version of this mod for 1.24 -27.10.2016 is available here: http://www.modthesims.info/download.php?t=585005



It is time for me to say 'adieu' and retire from modding TS4. The decision is a purely personal one. Thank-you to those who supported me during my run. I've been at it since this game first released, and I really appreciated the kind words that kept me going now and again. If anyone wishes to take up any of my mods, feel free. I have gathered a retirement archive for your convenience. Happy simming! ~MB }i{

Approved for patch 2-June-2016!

This week in my game the sink broke, the toilet broke, the computer broke, and the television broke...all one right after the other. Then I raged quit and made this mod. What I found was that all of the objects that break were set to a chance of 67% breakage. Which I suppose is why they do break all the time.

So, here are the reduced breakage flavors:

5 Percent - Default chance changed from 67% on all objects to 5%
15 Percent - Default chance changed from 67% on all objects to 15%
30 Percent - Default chance changed from 67% on all objects to 30%





How to Install (Important!)

Unzip the file and place in your Mod folder! Install only one flavor.

This mod is awesome and I love it but since downloading Outdoor Retreat, my items are breaking continuously again! Is there an update?

I just now got the Outdoor Retreat, so I have to check the objects in it.

Edit: The Outdoor Retreat does not come with any new breakage files, but there was a teeny tiny change to the base game files that I overlooked. Going to make an update now!

Yay thank you thank you thank you thank you! I don't know which one to use though... With the way the Sims 4 plays out, it seems you NEED stuff to break at least some of the time just to keep things from being too easy. My self Sim somehow made it through 10+ days without anything breaking. When my computer/tv broke I was like "FINALLY! SOMETHING DIFFERENT!" But then my stereo broke... And then the tv again... And the computer again... And I'm done. So 15% for me for now.

If you buy all your items at once, do they all break around the same time? Wonder if it's worth trying to stagger your purchases to spread the breakage out.

Maybe we need a script to randomise the starting repair level.

YES YES YES. No repairman and a 67% of breakage? What were they thinking? Can't tell you how many times I've had a sink, toilet AND shower shooting water all over creation at the same time. Thanks so much for this common sense mod!!!

Thank You ~MadameButterfly~!
This mod is excellent.

After downloading this mod, I was wondering if you have thought about developing a mod that prevents furniture from becoming dirty. Much like the "Stuff Breaks Far Less Easily" 0% Flavor Mod, but with always clean and always dirty states.

Thank you so much for this, 67% is extremely stupid. Stuff irl doesn't break that often (or at least it shouldn't)
