Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Ahhh the sweet, sweet probability. My game seems not to be good at maths, or at least believes that everything is 100% possible all the time. It was raining for 5 days in a row in my game and every damn time my Sims used their umbrellas, they broke, which is extremely stupid, because umbrellas are set to check if they can break every 24 hours. If you're experiencing a similar problem, please, enjoy this little mod in 4 flavours:
Fix3Days - the game will check if the umbrella should break every three days;
Fix5Days - the game will check if the umbrella should break every five days;
Fix7Days - the game will check if the umbrella should break every seven days;
(the default time is set to 24hours)
FixIndestructible - well, basically, it won't ever again break.

Update 20/02/2013: in patch 1.50 the check time is set to 3 days plus Percent Chance Break Increase is lower than previously. Shouldn't be so annoying anymore

PM me with any suggestions for this mod

This mod edits the Umbrella XML so it will conflict with anything that edits this one. Built with Base game 1.42., works for 1.67
You need Seasons for this mod, and please, USE ONLY ONE FLAVOUR!

//My mod was still in moderation queue when WTFeathers's mod came out. Go check out his mod if you want to change the % chance of breakage
