Meanfigful Stories is a mod created by roBurky.
This mod allows you to redesign the system of emotions and moods of the game. This way the Sims will be able to feel more human and the events in their life will take on real meaning.
In a nutshell, mix mood states with each other so that your Sim, even if they are depressed, can still help others with different activities.
It also adds another unique mood, which is TRUE HAPPINESS - this is triggered by important events such as the first kiss, a promotion at work and so on.
In game there is a TUTORIAL , which will explain how to use the mod.
In addition, there are also several settings. Basically, the mod replaces the green color of the "Happy" mood with the white of the "Satisfied" mood, thus assigning green to the latter mood. However, you can also disable this option.
Also through the settings, you can decide how and how much the environment, for example, affects your Sims.
The emotions will therefore be more realistic, appropriate to the situation, the events that your Sim faces. As mentioned before, they go to mix with each other, so that the Sims don't have real mood swings from Happy to Depressed and so on.
Even the most intense moods such as anger, go to mix, for example, with happiness. If there is something that makes your Sim angry, they will not be angry immediately and completely, but GRADUALLY.
Furthermore, the discomfort caused, for example, by a dirty environment, makes the SIMs MORE SENSITIVE to the negative things that happen around them.
Emotional inertia will arise in the Sims, therefore, of the emotions that, according to their main mood, will increase or decrease further moods.
Sometimes it will also happen that, as long as a certain buff does not go away, the mood does not change.
DLC: does not require any packages.
