This user has the following games installed:

Sims 2, University, Nightlife, Open for Business, Pets, Seasons, Bon Voyage, Free Time, Apartment Life
Default How long does it take before the Chemistry modifications are applied into gameplay?
I use Midgethetree's version of Romantic Standards. Before, I've also used VVQB's Zodiac Compatibility Overhaul mod, but I removed it temporarily because I'm not sure if it's compatible with Midge's mod.

Are the chemistry modifications applied immediately into gameplay, or does it take some time before they kick in? Because I found some odd attractions, like two lightning bolts between a Knowledge Virgo Sim and a Popularity-Romance Leo Sim, even though they have opposite personalities (shy vs outgoing, sloppy vs neat), the net Zodiac match is -35, and they only have one turn-on match.

I also checked Cyon's chemistry study page, but I have to do the math yet.

In my testing I found that Chemistry generally calculates each time two Sims interact. So if the Sims haven't interacted since you removed the mod, then their old chemistry would likely still be displayed in their relationship panels.

@HobbesED: thanks for the info. Does it also count if the Sim does the "Check Sim Out" interaction?

Absolutely. I used the "Check Out" interaction frequently when testing my Secondary Aspiration Attraction mod since it alters Sims' chemistry/attraction scores also.

If you use Cyjon's debugger, using "My Chemistry With..." interaction will recalculate chemistry between the sims without them having to interact. They both have to be on the lot, but being on the other end of a phone call also counts as being on the lot for that purpose.
