This mod replaces the thermometer displayed on a Sim portrait (which is an internal temperature meter) with old style emojis.
There are two versions of this mod. The ordinary one replaces all states of the meter with emojis, while the hidden comfortable one hides the meter when a Sim's temperature is in a comfortable range. Use only one version at a time.

I've also attached high-resolution source files in svg and png formats. Feel free to use or modify them.

This mod can be used with mods that change the appearance of the body temperature meter, as long as those changes aren't the only ones made by those mods, but must load after them.

I so love these, but I have a custom UI. Will there be conflict with that?

Where did your MTS uploads go?

What if you could place it alongside the thermometer? for redundancy's sake. (Silly, I know)

@lientebollemeis They should work fine together as long as my mod loads last.
@Sims2Christain It wouldn't be as easy as a simple replacement as I'd have to change the UI structure in order to make more space for images

I have no idea why that was the first thing to pop in to my head anyway.

What a sweet idea! It's also more intuitive than the thermometer which has the same colours for "a bit too hot" and "overheating" and the other way round. Love it!

To those using custom UI's, I have the Starship UI and adding a 'zzz' to this mod's file name makes it work just fine. I can thus confirm that load order will fix the emojis possibly not showing up otherwise.

finally! a way for the modern generation to understand temperature in this game!

I used to make dumb mods when i was bored, next time i'm bored i'll make a new mod.
