No longer needed as of game version 188.8.131.520.
Decreases the friendship gain a sim gets when taking another sim’s photo.
Makes playing photographer sims more feasible as they don’t automatically befriend every sim they take a photo of.
- Friendship gain per photo is decreased from 5 to 1 (per photo).
- Decreased the chance of the relationship gain happening from 100% to 50%.
If you want you can modify the mod for bigger/smaller relationship increase or a bigger/smaller chance of it happening. This is just what I use.
Under the hood:
In vanilla, each photo taken of a sim (the Take photo of and Take photo with interactions on the phone and cameras) increases the relationship between the sims by 5.
If a sim takes 5 photos they’re already at 25 friendship even without a nice introduction or a pristine reputation.
With the mod, there’s still a chance for a relationship gain but it’s 50% and the gain is reduced from 5 to 1. That means if the sims is unrealistically lucky, the maximum relationship gain they could achieve is 5 per “set” of 5 photos.
This affects photos taken of a sim or with a sim, using either a camera placed in the inventory, a tripod camera or the photo camera.
It doesn’t affect the HSY Photo Booth. That uses a different mechanic.
