Still fine with the
Teller Career Fix -- This one
is fine as is
you get to level 10 in the Mystic branch of the Fortune Teller
career, only to find that your reward is to see people boo your sim all
over town? Are your relationships with some of your
friends -- maybe even your family -- going down VERY quickly?
Yeah, EA planned it that way. :-(
If you look at the XML file that controls the Fortune Teller Career, it
turns out that sims with the Good, Friendly, or Family-Oriented traits
-- plus anyone in
the Science career -- will hate people with the mystic aura (i.e.,
anyone at level 10 in the Fortune Teller Career, Mystic Branch).
What? Why would being friendly, good, or family-oriented make a person
hate fortune tellers? (I can see where scientists might not get along
with fortune-tellers. ;-) ) And why would they hate honest
fortune-tellers who really CAN predict the future (Mystic branch),
rather than dishonest fortune tellers who are only pretending (Scam
So I made a little mod, replacing the Good, Friendly, and
Family-Oriented traits with the Supernatural
Skeptic trait, since it makes sense to me that Supernatural Skeptics
would hate fortune tellers. So, scientists and supernatural
skeptics will still hate you,
but people with the Good, Friendly, and Family-Oriented traits won't.
You put this mod where Sims 3 mods usually go; if you don't know where
that is, see Mod

This mod alters the FortuneTellerCareer XML file and only needs to be
updated for a new patch if that file has changed. Neither the
1.50 nor 1.55 patches has changed that file, so this mod works for
those patches, too.
Teller Career Fix
Musical Instruments Are
More Fun AND Give More Skill -- Download the new version
for the 1.50 patch
I think playing a musical instrument is one of the coolest things a
person can do, and I'm amazed that sims get more fun from watching TV
than from playing a piano or guitar.
This mod will increase the fun that your sims get from playing any of
the musical instruments -- piano, guitar, bass, or drums -- and will
also cause your sims to gain instrument-playing skill more rapidly.
Installation: You put this mod where Sims 3 mods usually go;
if you don't know where that is, see Mod
The Sims' explanation of where to put custom content.
This mod alters the Play_BassGuitar, Play_Drums, Play_Guitar,
Play_Piano, Jam_BassGuitar, Jam_Drums, Jam_Guitar, and Jam_Piano ITUN
files. The 1.55 patch didn't alter those files, so this mod works
with that patch.
This mod doesn't affect the violin that came with the The Dukes of Bows
Renaissance Faire store content; I've made a mod for the violin but
haven't gotten around to testing it yet.
