When you play on an inhabited lot, every 3 days your Sims get an opportunity to get a genie lamp. Originally, a chance for it is calculated within the following formula:
Quote:
2 percentage points + 2 p.p. for each Sim having their lifetime aspiration higher than 66% + 1 p.p. for each Sim having at least 8 points of enthusiasm towards a hobby (there are 10 hobbies in total so one Sim can add up to 10 p.p. to the chance this way)
That leads to a situation when distressed or unenthusiastic families have little chance of getting a genie lamp, and also genie lamps aren't really rare in general. These two things are going to change with this mod.

This mod makes a single chance for getting a genie lamp be calculated simply: number of family members (pets are excluded) multiplied by X percentage points, where X is the value from the name of the config file you'll choose: 0.05, 0.1, 0.25, or 0.5.
So, if you play 4-member family and have installed the 0.5 config version, the chance will be 2% (= 4 × 0.5 p.p.).

This mod consists of two parts: the core that changes the way the chance is calculated and the config that contains the X value.
You need both parts to make this mod work. Use only one config version at a time.

You can change the X by editing the behavior constant of the config file in SimPe. Note that you have to enter your new X in a numerator and denominator form.

How many days must pass to be at least 50% sure that a family will get a genie lamp?
Originally, in the worst case (a distressed and unenthusiastic family – 2% per day): 105 days. But one family member having a high LTA (4% per day) reduces the time to 51 days. 2 members having a high LTA and 4 members having high enthusiasm towards a hobby (10% per day) reduce it to 21 days.
In theory, the time can be even reduced to 3 days in a highly fulfilled and enthusiastic family – it's really difficult to achieve though.

With this mod, an answer to this question depends on the family size:
Version1-member family2-member family4-member family8-member family
0.054158 days2079 days1041 days519 days
0.12079 days1041 days519 days261 days
0.25831 days417 days207 days105 days
0.5417 days207 days105 days51 days
Note that to be 75% sure, approximately twice as many days must pass, 87.50% – 3 times, 93.75% – 4 times, and so on.
