To Make it Clear: XML Injector is required to run the mod in its complete state.

Update 10/06/2021:
  • I'm afraid it's a rather sparse update today compared to what I wanted to produce. First and foremost, cochlear implants have been added! ...sort of. They've been added in the respect that the framework is there. The battery component has not, nor has it been added for hearing aids; I attempted to make it work but I'm genuinely struggling with the current knowledge and resources I've got.
  • Two minor tweaks, in addition: the text for the SSL description has been changed, and a replacement buff for Noisy Neighbours has been added.
  • Unfortunately, I'm also still struggling with fixing the bug of you having to select the accommodations twice to get them to stick. I thought I'd found a method earlier in the week, but during testing that out a lot of things started going wrong everywhere. I deeply apologize this thing isn't as polished as it should be  If anyone has any ideas as to what in the Watcher's name I'm doing wrong here, advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated.


Let me know if there's anything else I can do between this update and the next to make the trait as smooth-functioning as possible.

---------

Since my Eating Disorder Pack has gone down so well, I thought I'd try my hand at another trait - this time, covering deafness and being HoH! This was originally intended to be a reward trait, but for whatever reason nothing I do to make it such is working, be it in Mod Constructor or Sims4Studio. It's poor taste to ask for help when I've already got a 'help' thread going, though, so for the moment it's a CAS Social trait for the sake of it being accessible and releasable.

Statistic Multipliers
  • All musical instrument skills, DJ Mixing, Singing, Media Production, Child Social, and Career Performance for Entertainer increase half (0.5 multiplier) as fast (with the exception of when Hearing Aids or Cochlear Implants are in, when the multiplier jumps to 0.8)
Occasional Buffs
  • OWW - Dazed +4 (15 Sim minutes, Hearing Aids on only)
  • 11 Continuous Loots to be found
This trait does not affect autonomy or need decay, nor does it have any whims or proximity buffs.

For a list of things to do/fix, go to this pack's Trello page here! The current top priority is getting the batteries to work and fixing that damn selection bug.

Thank you again for your interest! Let me know if there's anything I need to fix or that you'd like to see.

Confident +1

Competent Composer

Chillish Tunes

Happy +2

An Understanding

Embarrassed +2

Oh, Honey, No
(From Deaf Trait)

A Handy Companion

The performer Bella is watching doesn't actually have a sign language interpreter per se, but she has someone with {M0.him}{F0.her} that can interpret on their behalf! Nice.

Focused +1

Intelligent Interpretation
(From Deaf Trait)
They added a sign language interpretator to the program today! That's great for John! Though it does mean he needs to focus to keep up with those hand movements.

Sad +2

Absent Accessibilty
(From Deaf Trait)
There's no sign language interpreter on today's program. Mary feels upset about that, and also upset that {M0.he's}{F0.she's} upset about that, since it's not exactly a small thing, but still... gah.

Angry +2

An Affront
(From Deaf Trait)
Magic Gnome is fundamentally against cochlear implants as a concept. Any deaf Sim who uses them is only kowtowing to the hearing community!

2 hours

Bored +1

Fuzzy Mouth

Dorothy is struggling to make out the lip movements on her TV today. By the time she does get a grasp of the scene, it's already the next one! It doesn't make for a great watch.

Happy +1

Enunciation's Clear
(From Deaf Trait)
This particular program's good for William, as he can read the lips of the speakers very easily!

Embarrassed +1

How... Sweet?
(From Deaf Trait)
Someone promised to dedicate a song to John - but either they don't know or have forgotten that {M0.he's}{F0.she's} deaf. {M0.He}{F0.She} still appreciates it, but man is that gonna be awkward to explain.

Out of Reach

As a theoretical Music Lover, not being able to access that which she yearns to hear is devastating in the extreme.
2 hours

Confident +4

(From Being Deaf)

Magic Gnome can't tell if someone's got the radio on or if they're in deathly silence. Come on, turn up the beat, will ya?
4 hours

Focused +2

Tranquil Silence
(From Deaf Trait)
Mary knows music is being played somewhere, {M0.he's}{F0.she's} just not sure where. {M0.He'll}{F0.She'll} have to focus reaaaaally hard to make anything out at all, if she even can...
2 hours

4 hours

Happy +3

Hear Hear!
(From Cochlear Implants)
It took a lot of thought and a lot of prep, but Magic Gnome has finally had his cochlear implants installed! {M0.He's}{F0.She's} now functionally a hearing Sim... albeit with a few differences.
5 hours

Happy +2

A World of Sound
(From Cochlear Implants)
It can be easy, sometimes, to take the hearing world for granted when you've been without it for even a little time. Bella wants to take a moment to truly realize how lucky she is.

Intelligent Interpretation
(From Deaf Trait)
They added a sign language interpretator to the program today! That's great for John! Though it does mean he needs to focus to keep up with those hand movements.
Absent Accessibilty
(From Deaf Trait)
There's no sign language interpreter on today's program. Leia feels upset about that, and also upset that {M0.he's}{F0.she's} upset about that, since it's not exactly a small thing, but still... gah.

Angry +2

An Affront

An Understanding
(From Deaf Trait)
The Sim with cochlear implants shouldn't worry - John gets it. They're in the same boat, after all.

Embarrassed +2

Oh, Honey, No

A Handy Companion

The performer Bella is watching doesn't actually have a sign language interpreter per se, but she has someone with {M0.him}{F0.her} that can interpret on their behalf! Nice.

Focused +1

Intelligent Interpretation
(From Deaf Trait)
They added a sign language interpretator to the program today! That's great for John! Though it does mean he needs to focus to keep up with those hand movements.
Absent Accessibilty
(From Deaf Trait)
There's no sign language interpreter on today's program. Leia feels upset about that, and also upset that {M0.he's}{F0.she's} upset about that, since it's not exactly a small thing, but still... gah.

Angry +2

An Affront
(From Deaf Trait)
Robert is fundamentally against cochlear implants as a concept. Any deaf Sim who uses them is only kowtowing to the hearing community!
