Home Repair: Stained Walls

Jump to Patch Notes

This is very similar to my Damaged Walls mod. It functions almost identically to that except that you don’t need Handiness to clean after inspecting.

Why do you have to inspect them before cleaning them? Because that gives you the freedom to choose when they become cleanable. Otherwise your sims will go around doing it on their own when you might want it to stay messy for a bit.

These are overrides of EA objects, given custom tuning and moved to the Wall Sculptures category in build mode. This is to make them easier to find and to clean up the buy mode wall decorations a bit.

    StrangerVille Wall Stain: Cleaning

Details

  • For Rent Wall Stains (4 versions)
  • StrangerVille Wall Stains (2 versions)
  • Vampires Water Stains (2 versions)
Requires For Rent, StrangerVille or Vampires. There are no basegame wall stains that I've found, sorry.
The new strings are in:
  • English
  • French
  • Polish
  • Russian
I don't speak any languages nearly well enough to translate this myself so I welcome any translations that anyone can offer and will credit all translators.
  • SER_KISYAN - Russian translation
  • VanessaSims - French translation
  • Aarathiel - Polish translation
  • These will only be able to be interacted with if your sim is on the same building level as the object. Indoors this shouldn't usually be a problem, but outdoors there is weirdness where it looks accessible but because of a foundation it's not. I've tried to find a fix but so far nothing.
  • The stove cleaning animation isn't ideal but I couldn't think of a basegame one that I thought would work. Open to suggestions.
  • More Home Repair mods that will include objects from more packs.
  • If you know of an item I missed let me know

Addons

The addon contains cloned objects from Get Famous, Get Together, and Werewolves. These do not override the existing objects, but make copies so you can choose on a case-by-case basis whether the graffiti is art or vandalism.
  • Get Famous Graffiti
  • Get Together Graffiti (4 versions)
  • Werewolves Graffiti
This addon works as a standalone mod itself if you don't want or can't use the main mod (for example, if you don't have StrangerVille or Werewolves, but you do have Get Together)

This addon removes the negative environment scores from the objects in the main mod.

Patch Notes

  • Added new objects from For Rent
  • Updated NoNeg addon with new objects as well
  • Removed some duplicated strings from the NoNeg addon to bring down the file size very slightly.
  • Made the graffiti addon stand on its own if you don't have the main mod. It's slightly more work for me to maintain, but it will be less confusing for you.
  • Discontinued the TUNING_ONLY download as a result of the above. Please delete it when you update to the latest version of the addon if you're using it.
  • Updated the main mod to remove the tuning that I moved to the graffiti addon.
  • Renamed the Get Together graffiti file for better clarity now that Growing together is out.
  • Reuploaded the TUNING_ONLY file that I seem to have accidentally deleted.
  • This is really more of a maintenance update as the mod itself is unchanged.
  • Discontinued the Alt version of the mod and replaced it with a new addon: StainedWallsNoNeg. If you want no negative environment from the objects you can just include that addon with the main mod.
  • Removed retail option from these. You shouldn't be able to sell stains!
  • Removed custom thumbnails to bring down file size and save myself some work going forward
  • Be sure to remove all old files before installing, especially if you were using the Alt version
  • Fixed a bug where Neat sims could clean stains without them being inspected first.
  • Added French translation from Vanessa Sims
  • Added Polish translation from Aarathiel
  • Reduced the negative environment from each object. You’ll need to place more objects to see the negative buff, but it should keep sims from being miserable when you just want a little damage for aesthetic.
  • Added tooltips to tell you how much negative environment each object gives.
  • Added a new addon for graffiti. Be sure to read the details and requirements of it before downloading it.
  • I realized as I was typing this that I forgot to screenshot the addon objects but they’re the only graffiti that shows up in Wall Attachments so you can’t miss them.
  • Uploaded the tuning file separately. You only need this if you’re planning to use the addon without the main mod.
  • Uploaded the correct file for Merged this time. If you downloaded the Separate version that I uploaded last night there’s nothing broken about it, but it’s got everything broken down into all the pieces for my use. The other files are better.
  • Fixed a bug where I forgot to generate the strings for all the languages. Sorry about that.
  • Added Russian translation from SER_KISYAN
  • Added an alt version by request. This version does not have negative environment effects. Please read the instructions in the Downloads section and if you’re replacing the original version with the alt one be sure to delete your old files.
