Decor with a Purpose: Functional Sunblock

Jump to Patch Notes

Now you don’t need to already be sunbathing to apply sunblock! Using this object applies the same Island Living sunblock buff that prevents sunburn. They can even use it from their inventory!

This is an override of an Island Living item given a custom variation of the Apply Sun Protection interaction. It shouldn’t conflict with anything unless you have something else that happens to modify this object specifically. In any case, please let me know if you have any problems with it.

Details

  • flerb's Automatic Sunburns seems to also use the default sunblock buff so this should work with it. Let me know if it doesn't.
  • This is not compatible with Kuttoe's Basic Burns because they override the same object. If you want the additional functionality you should use that one instead.
  • andiberlin has added this item as an addon to their Purchase Medicine and Purchasing System Overhaul mods so you can have a convenient way to get it without having to find it in build/buy mode

Addons

Requires Island Living & Spa Day
  • This addon overrides some tuning for the sunblock buff to interact with the High Maintenance Hates Sun buff.
  • With the addon sims with sunblock on won't get the Hate Sun buff and sims with the buff can get rid of it by applying sunblock either from my object or from towels and chairs with the interaction.
  • It's not required for this mod to work and it doesn't actually require the main mod. However, it still requires Island Living as well as Spa Day.
Requires Island Living
  • Gives sims the sunblock face paint while the buff is active. This doesn't actually require the main mod, just Island Living for the sunblock buff but it will conflict with other mods that modify this.

Thank you!

Patch Notes

  • Discontinued the animation fallback addon. I don't think it's needed. If you have any problems with the animation let me know.
  • Reworked the animation and animation addon setup. Hopefully the main animation works for everyone, but if it doesn’t you should grab the AnimationFallback addon. Then please reach out to me to help me figure out the expansion requirements for sure (animations are annoying).
  • Added an addon that gives sims the sunblock face paint while the buff is active. This doesn’t actually require my mod, just IL for the sunblock buff.
  • Brand new search functionality! I’m slowly adding hidden tags to my objects so you can find them by searching for “Ilex” (that’s an uppercase i at the beginning if you can’t tell). In English you can also search for “Sunscreen” and have this come up (honestly just because I always call it that and end up typing that instead of “Sunblock”)
  • Make sure you delete any old version of the addons because they won’t get overwritten.

Now you don’t need to already be sunbathing to apply sunblock! Using this object applies the same Island Living sunblock buff that prevents sunburn. They can even use it from their inventory!
