Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
THE MERMAID INTERACTIONS SHOULDN'T GIVE ANYMORE LE ERRORS (THE STATUE COULD STILL GIVE THEM THOUGH).
I WILL NOT MAKE ANOTHER FIX, NOW I HAVE TO FOCUS ON OTHER THINGS.

-------------------------------------
THE STATUE SHOULD NOW APPEAR, IT USED TO HAVE VAMPIRES GAME PACK'S REQUIREMENTS. NOW IT DOESN'T ANYMORE, PLEASE REDOWNLOAD
--------------------------------------
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.

I am pleased to say that I have tried the "LASTFIX" version with 1.40, and it works perfectly. I can transform via the statue, I got my scales, I've changed my scales, swam around... good times.

I'm seriously impressed by this mod! It's really amazing, thank you!
One question though - would it be possible to get a flavour without the voice change? I'd love to have mermen, but the voice, well... Doesn't really suit them, haha.

Default vampire clash
This is truly an amazing mod, both aesthetically and game play based, but I noticed an anomaly, nothing that has to be fixed, but something that might be good to know. When making a vampire into a mermaid (or rather vampire mermaid hybrid) most needs disappear, leaving only hydration, social and fun as (visible) needs. Now this is in no way something that has to be fixed (it just makes vampire-mermaid hybrids seem op), but it could be a good thing to add in the description just so that you won't get messages about this in the future.

otherwise, as I said, it's an amazing mod that you've truly done a remarkable job on!

If you have the thing called "show mods at startup" on which is applied automatically, it should be under script mods if it is a script mod.

For those of you who are having problems with the mod, i don't know if this can help you, but i downloaded a 7z file extractor, and i used it on the mod. Now it does work for me; maybe it's just because you didn't extract it with the right program!

The file downloaded fine for me, I used WinZIP to unzip the file and place it in my mods folder as I do with my other mods. I use several mods (which have all been updated at the beginning of March) and have come to the conclusion that this mod is whats making my game, and MCC, freak. I too had to deal with a infinite Sad moodlet at "0" and a load screen that wouldn't go away while moving between lots. I'll have to remove this mod for the sake of my saved games, I this this is a GREAT idea and I can't wait to try a newer version!!

Default Stuck in Infinite Sad moodlet
Just like others, this also doesn't work for me. After remembering the legend, My sims after waiting the 24 hours gets stuck in the infinite sad moodlet bug. Using the console command to give the Mermaid trait also doesn't fully work as it only gives the sim the Hydration bar; no scales or tail. I wish I could know what the difference is between the simmers who can run this correctly and those like me who have this bug. I also have the fairy mod installed and haven't had a single problem with that so I don't understand why this doesn't work.

Also in your mods folder it will say TS4SCRIPT FILE instead of PACKAGE FILE (caps because that is the way it look not yelling)

Doesnt work much for me as well.. Altho I already got passed the "not receiving the trait" and getting stucked at 0 mins Sad buff part by unzipping it with 7zip in my 2nd try but after I still get LE's when I try to change the color and when I try to travel I still get stucked at the loading screen.

Oh also not entirely sure if its the mod is causing it but I got a UI glitch after the interaction with the statue, it's just the UI Sim in the mood/emotions panel it appears to be "asleep" even tho the sim is actually awake and moving. I got rid of it by removing the "Its so sad" buff in debug.

BUT besides that I like the Idea of the mod and Ive always look forward to your creations since I also use your fairy mod. Thank you for your hard work!

I hope there's a supernatural mod to make sims into angel and... fallen angel. Who didn't have a fantasy woohooing with a hot devil? And how to turn a good angel into a bad one and then eventually being degraded and depraved. Just a little suggestion.
