Alien Motive Tweaks

Jump to Patch Notes

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.

Requires Get to Work because otherwise you don't have aliens anyway.

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.

The new motive name is translated in the following languages:
  • Danish
  • Dutch
  • French
  • German
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Norwegian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • Swedish
Please be aware that for many of those languages it's really just reverse engineered from other strings so it may be flawed. If it's wrong in your language just tell me what it should say and I'll credit you as a translator.
