Complementary Mods:

IMPORTANT: This mod contains many overrides of base game files in order to provide compelling fear functionality. Overridden files mostly include objects, a few interactions, and whims. The list of tuning files modified can be found in my documentation here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/…dit?usp=sharing


Use a program such as WinRAR to extract files no more than one folder level deep within your Mods folder. All three files are required.
