v1.0 – 9/2/22 – Initial Release
I made this for personal use way back when I was working on my PlantSim Motive Overhaul because I wanted to mimic the Sims 3 alien motives. I’ve been playing with it for a while but I forgot all about sharing it here for a while.
This is simpler than the PlantSim one (hence “Tweaks” instead of “Overhaul”). Really all it does is merge the Energy motive and the hidden Brain Power motives together. Functionally it’s an energy bar, but it’s called Brain Power and themed around that. Using alien powers drains this instead of the hidden motive.
Be warned that this overrides the Energy motive and will conflict with any other mod that does so. I would love to figure out a way to not override something so major, but from what I can tell even the XML Injector doesn’t have a thing for that.
This is also unlikely to be compatible with any other alien mod, as it edits the alien trait. If there’s one you want me to try for compatibility with let me know I can look into it, but no promises.
Requires Get to Work because otherwise you don’t have aliens anyway.
