THE MERMAID INTERACTIONS SHOULDN'T GIVE ANYMORE LE ERRORS (THE STATUE COULD STILL GIVE THEM THOUGH).
I WILL UPDATE IT, BUT NOW I HAVE TO FOCUS ON OTHER THINGS FIRST.

--------------------------------------
METHOD FOR WHO HAS PROBLEMS WITH THE STATUE: SINCE THE STATUE DOESN’T WORK PROPERLY FOR YOU, FOR NOW USE THIS CHEAT TO BECOME A MERMAID: traits.equip_trait Mermaid. AS FOR THE SCALES , SELECT YOUR SIM, GO TO “Mermaid” then “Change the color of your scales” and select a color.


After sweat, pain and tears used to create this mod, I'm excited to announce the new mermaid lifestate!
Let's see the features included in this (not very big) mod!:

-How to become a mermaid?-

First of all, you need to buy the "The Queen of the Mermaids" statue, which costs §20.000 (Cheats time!)It can be found under the section “sculptures”, but I highly suggest to just search it using the word “queen”. After you bought it, you'll have two interactions available:
- The typical "Observe" interaction, present in every statue.
- "Remember the "Queen's" legend", where the sim will start to look down, trying to remember the legend of this queen. After they've remembered it, there will be two possible outcomes:
= Fail: The sim will find the legend boring and fake, and thus will receive the "Boooring..." (+3 bored) buff which will last 24 hours straight! With this buff, the sim will not be gifted by the queen because of their skepticism. Once the buff runs out, you can retry again.
= Success: The sim will find the legend very sad, and so they will receive the "This is so sad..." (+3 sad) buff, which will still last 24 hours, but after it passes out, the queen will acknowledge their caring attitude, and will grant your sim's (and your) wish! After that, their legs will start to glow, and scales will appear there, all followed by the "New Scales!" (+8 happy) buff.
=Note: To speed up the process of transformation, when obtaining the sad buff the sim can "cry it out". (This is useful for those who don't like to wait)

-"The Queen of the Mermaids" statue-


- Now you're wondering "Why do I have to remember a legend to become a mermaid", and the answer is in the description of the object, where a legend is written.
- Mermaids will consider the statue a grave, so they can "Mourn the queen". The motivation of this is in the legend, I wonder what will be your theories. A hint is present in the buff they'll receive when they mourned the queen. (The buff is "Such a brave mermaid..." and gives +6 sadness)

-What are the features of the Mermaids?-

Hydration need:
- Let's start with the hydration need, which will replace Hygiene. This need can be filled by swimming in the pool, taking a shower, taking a bath, going on a water slide, etc.
With advantages though, come disadvantages because the Hydration need decays much faster when staying outside during daytime! Normally you'd have to spend most of your time near water sources but, to make things easier, I made sure that everytime they use water and then they don't use it anymore, the "Hydrated" (+2 Happy) buff, which lasts 4 hours, will appear and will slowly fill the hydration need. If a mermaid doesn't care about their hydration they will pass 2 stages before dying:
= The first buff to appear when low on hydration is "Chapped" (+2 uncomfortable), which will make the sim to have a "pretty dried" skin. They will also walk slowly.
= The second and last buff is Dehydrated (+50 uncomfortable), where the sim will almost nearly die. They will have a "very dried" skin and will be unable to use the pool.
After the mermaid passes these two stages, they will die from dehydration. So take good care of your scales, or else...
Scales and Tail:
- Mermaids have the ability to change the color of their scales! You'll just have to select the color under the menu "Change the color of your scales" in the Mermaid pie menu.
The tail, of course, will follow the same color scheme of the scales. There are 6 colors in total. Another thing with the tail, is that they appear only in some specific locations during specific actions!
For ex. Mermaids won't have the tail when they are in the shower, but they will if they are in a bathtub. When a mermaids jumps in the pool it might take a bit for the tail to appear, in case it won't, do "swim laps" and see if that works.
Singing ability:
- Mermaids have one more interaction, that is "Sirens melody", where the sim will sing some notes very briefly. This has effects on other sims (from teens to elders), in fact they will have the "Such a Wonderful voice..." (+8 flirty) buff which lasts 4 hours. Not only when they observe the mermaid, they react by doing a "melted" animation, but they will also accept almost every flirt from the mermaid.

NOTES: Don't do this interaction while swimming, it doesn't work in that case (for now). Also If the sims don't fall under the spell of the mermaid's voice, keep doing the interaction until it works.

FOR WHO HAS CITY LIVING: Mermaids develop the singing skill MUCH MUCH faster (like, in just 1/2 minutes the mermaid has level 10 in the singing skill). And also, the sims who look or stay near the mermaid while is singing (even when they sing in the shower or sing at a karaoke), will have the same reaction they have when they hear the "Sirens Melody".
Some other stuff:
- If Children and childish sims see a mermaid, they might have the "Wow! A Mermaid!" buff (+6 happy) (In the future, a reaction will be created for them)
- Mermaids's autonomy has been slightly modified. If there's a chance, they will jump in the pool, or will take a shower.
- Mermaids are smooth talkers, so if they flirt with a sim, their romance relationship will receive a small but effective bonus.
- Mermaids have wonderful and mythical voices, so they won't talk like normal sims.

This is so amazing! The best mod! But one question. I have only the base game and cats and dogs expansion. Is it going to be base game or I will need expansions to have it in my game?!

there's already Triplis's Sorcercer's Mod and WildWitch's mage/magicc mods but I agree on the alien add on. To be honest, I want to be surprised with Nyx's Mods.

I haven't tried the mermaid mod yet but I can't wait

No scales, no happy buff afterwards, just the sad buff blinking in the corner and not going away. Then MCCC came up saying that there was an issue with a mod, which I assumed it was this one and went to check the log and indeed it had to do with some sort of "appearance modifier" script so I was like.. ah, yes, the mod did have some issues.
Is there something I can do to get it to work? I can test it on a different sim, try again and all that. I went out of the household and went to load back in and got an infinite loading screen which kind of sucked.. I couldn't close the game either other than with task manager.

It was probably because it wasn't fixed yet

If it helps, I have MCCC and it was throwing a Script Error.

I had posted that when the mod first came out, before Nyx had seen that there was problems. Hopefully it helped to show them what the problems were.

In the meantime, Nyx. I greatly look forward to using it! I also look forward to mods you’ll come up with in the future! (Until expansions come out with different occults, I’ll be using your mods until the last day!)

I'm super excited for the release! Will the mermaid trait be passed down through the family? (like if a child has a mermaid parent, will they have a chance being a mermaid too?)

At this point in time, inheritance is not included. Even because mermaid children and toddlers aren't possible to do yet.

Default Can you give me some supernatural modding advice?
So I really hope I’m asking this right spot, because I would really lik advice on making a supernatural sim.
Your Mods are to die for, and I couldn’t make my sims the way I like without them.
I always wanted to make mods, but I was so unsure about doing; like getting the magic effects.
Or making a sims singing affect other sims and make them flirty(siren song😂)
I just could really use some advice.
Thx.

All the files are in the .rar
It can be found under the section sculptures. To find it fast, I suggest you to search the word “queen”

Excuse me, I have some question to ask you. I have already installed all the mods, but I can't find the statue in build mode and I don't know why. When I searched it with "Queen" or "Mermaid", it brought me to the sclupture but the statue didn't appear there. Please tell me how to fix it. Thank you

thank you for this. unfortunately this is giving me nonstop LEs, and my sims never turn into mermaid, the sad buff actually doesn't even go away. After I applied the trait to them by cheating, it turned out they didn't have scales.
