Update Info
24 Dec 2018. Checked with V1.48.94 (PC). No Update Needed. Merry Christmas, to each and every one of you!
19 Dec 2018. Checked with V1.48.90 (PC). No Update Needed.

Mod Description
Always Full Battery
This is a simple mod.
It keeps your drone's battery full forever. But if the drone is working too long, it will still break down and need to be repaired. The mod has not changed that. In addition, notifications about low batteries will still be displayed, but you can ignore it.

Increased Working Time
Yes, if you don't like “Always full battery”, you can choose this one.
It will increase working hours for your Streaming Drones。

Attachment Description
Soulkiller_StreamingDrone_AlwaysFullBattery --> It will always work until you turn it off.
Soulkiller_StreamingDrone_Increased Working Time 2x --> 2 times slower than default.
Soulkiller_StreamingDrone_Increased Working Time 4x --> 4 times slower than default.
Soulkiller_StreamingDrone_Increased Working Time 6x --> 6 times slower than default.
Only choose one mod! They will conflict with one another. As far as I know, there isn't any mod that conflicts with these ones yet. I'll update when there are any conflicts.

How to get one Streaming Drone?
- You need to upgrade your game to "Get Famous Expansion" (v1.47.49.1020 - v1.47.51.1020)
- BuildMode > Objects by Function >Electronics > Misc


Enjoy!

lower_bound 1 (Low) / 15 (High) --> 99

Any possibility of an override for the privacy shutdown? I'm sure my sim's fans would love to watch her shower and... other stuff.

I don't know what's wrong with it. I have tested it many times and it can be extracted normally. I‘m sorry.
