Hey There,

This is a very simple Modification, but it really improves the NPC Vampires.
First, the vampires don't Hunt, Force people thinking about them and reading sim's their minds.

Now they will do! Be prepared for evil hunting mind-reading NPC Vampires!
From now on, no sim in the town will be safe.. (unless you're a vampire)

How it Works
As the Vampires are NPC, they will choose random their actions.
If they want to do an ability, thet will: but as they have an own will: it can be random generated.

But they do! I tought it was really missing!
The Vampires that do'nt use their own abilities, that was really strange for me.

So be Prepared for the evil vampires, which will use their abilities!
Maybe the Moodlet has finally a real good reason to appears..

Conflitcts & Versions
This modification fits with any other vampire modification which does not edit the xml files about the who can and not for the actions listed above.

The Mod is no Core-Mod, so it will work with other core mods.

Also, this mod was created with version 6.0.81.009.
As there are no changes in the patches for this object, it should work in any version of Late Night.

Translation
This modification fits with any language version of the game, as no strings were edited or deleted.

List of Updates
What's new? Read it all in the patch notes!


Updating to V1.05
To install the V1.05 update, simply Replace the .Package Files.

Endword
Have fun with the modification!

Sorry for my possible bad english, im from belgium.
Please, feel free to correct my english in a comment or private message, and i will correct!

So hateful? I am afraid you do not know the meaning of this word pal, I haven't offended anyone. I didn't know we had posted at the same time and just asked a question. Chill out man and take a cup of camomile tea -__-

Yeah, hopefully

EDIT: I have a question pal (and I hope you won't get pissed by this one, I am not trying yo harass you or annoy, just want to know something for myself). In your changelog/updatelog you wrote literally "Vampires will now go and bite autonomous, real this time." This is not true actually. I looked your edits in all three packages and the "autonomous bite" thing has NOT been edited. You just made the "hunt" interaction autonomous for everyone (but left it just as is). If you want an advice, look for what I have edited in my overhaul for npc powers: I made them more autonomous whenever their fun or social need is low. If you add this values (you can copy/paste them) to your "hunt" thing it'll be even more likely to be seen ingame. During my gameplay, whenever I go to a place where there are at least a couple or more vampires, they use their powers at will almost every time (even my own vamp sims actually!). If you want these interactions to be even more autonomous, raise the advertised value in the tuning and test to find the best solution (too high would mean annoying, keep that in mind). Differently from what you think, I am not doing a war against your mod =) I will be glad to help you improve your mod, or just to cooperate in doing some more changes for vamps, but if you prefer standing on your own, I won't insist.
Have a nice cheesy day

If you both don't mind me saying, I think both your mods compliment each other. I find my vamps more exciting with both mods installed. Kudos to you both!!

Thank you for the feedback.
I will take a look at it.

I am a very advanced PHP-scripter, and now i am learning modding the sims, so all hints and feedback are welcome!

In the notes i said the vampires now really will bite, as they wont have 10 fruits. :P
Because a big fail, i accidently added a xml tune that gave 10 fruit.

I just looked into the core and found a file which list every walk style, from simbot, to elder, and also vampires and so on! But I have no clue how I could edit it to change the run speed for it. I cant find other things for the walking style, only that:

.class auto ansi sealed nested public WalkStyle

} // end of class WalkStyle

But what the hell? lol I must say I dont know any thing from C++ or other Hex languages. So this is really bad... I hope someone can find some thing inside the core to make vampire even better! And maybe more autonomous!

I'm running both of these mods presently, I'm hoping they're not sending mixed messages to the vamps.

Hey there. You have done such a good job with this mod, it is amazing. Thank you so much

But there is one thing missing that i really really need and am hoping you could help me with. When a sim changes into a vampire, i dont want their skin or eyes to change colour. Can this be modified? If so, can you please please do it for me? I am happy to donate!!!!?

Thank you x

I've also wondered about that. I think it's very interesting that they look more subtle, which goes well with the whole "night hunter".

I had to remove this mod after I have patched to 6.1 in Late Night, the game became very sluggish and stuttered when vampires appeared in community lots and parties. Once I removed the mod, the game functioned speedy and normal. I saw the caveat: Made with LN 6.0 in the download so I tried it anyway. Will there be a version of this for 6.11 LN? Your mod makes the vampires way more interesting than the EA tuning and I want to use it again without slowing down the game.
Thanks so much.

Haven't seen any npc vampires yet. Although i came across a vampire papparazzi. So that means that one would not only stalk you for being a celebrity but also sees you as a snack. Interesting. And i guess this is not for the townies. Or is it? Because NPC means Non-Playable Character and every townie/household is playable, like Beau Merrick, Elvira Slayer and all those other vampire townies.

Default What file to pick out of the 3
I want this Mod with ShoNi's vampire overhaul.. Which one of the 3 files do I need to download?

And is there a mode for autonomous turn??

I am thinking of a challenge where (similar to the zombie challenge) your sim has to survive the world being taken over by vampires, vamps that will actually kill or turn. So maybe a doomsday or last human left type of thing.

Either. I think they're just named that way for organisational purposes.. I personally bung any old mod in either.

Is this mod good for the 1.29 patch?
